Toy Veteran Group Judge: Mr J Thirlwell
I would like to thank the Darlington committee for their kind invitation to judge my first CC appointment at this my “local” show, and for their generous hospitality on the day. In judging today I was looking for balanced dogs who were dainty without being delicate in any way. On the whole, presentation was excellent, though not many exhibits had single, silky coats. Movement continues to be a worry with many exhibits lacking the light free flowing action as required in the Standard. Some very nice exhibits were let down by poor or dirty dentition. I was very pleased with my winners, feeling they illustrated well what I look for in a Papillon. I was delighted to see both BOB & BP shortlisted in their groups, and thrilled when the BV won the TVG.

Veteran Dog (3 Entries Abs: 0)
1st: (JOYCE Mrs J) Ch Calajoy Robbie Macfluff. 9½ years old, b/w boy. Well coated and presented in immaculate condition. Good facial pigment and well marked head. Nice dark eye, well set, well defined stop. Good overall outline though volume of coat made him appear heavier than he is. Level topline and tail carried well. Spirited lad, moved with plenty of energy
2nd: (MALCOLM Mrs H & Mr D) Shamal Topaz Sh.CM. Another 9½ year old boy, r/s/w. Facially this boy looks older than his years, as his muzzle is freying, but he still has a sparkle in his dark eyes. Stands foursquare with a level topline which he maintained on the move. Super fit condition and well presented, though again quite an excess of coat. Lovely temperament, very much in tune with his handler.

2nd: (ODD, Miss C & ODD Mrs M) Dorvale Winter Gold At Trenarwyn 7½ months r/s/w. Similar type and construction as 1 but a little less refined in head at the moment, would have preferred a little more defined stop.
