Papillon Judge: Petula Humphrey (Gloynbyw)
BOB Mr B & Mrs J Wiggins Rozamie Pierre
BPIB Mrs G A Geary Taliesyn Black Walnut
I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge this wonderful breed, my steward for running the ring so well, and the exhibitors for allowing me to judge their dogs. All exhibits were turned out well, were well behaved and were a joy to judge. My decision for Best of Breed was not easy to make and on another day any one of the exhibits could have won.
My thanks to the exhibitors for allowing me the honour of judging their dogs. Standard was very high and BOB decision very close
1st Mrs G A Geary Taliesyn Wild Tansey 8 month red and white bitch well presented. Correct skull, finely pointed muzzle, accentuating well defined stop. Dark eyes with dark rims. Ears large and mobile with fringing starting to develop. Good length of neck into well- developed sloping shoulders. Correct body. Good turn of stifle. Tail reasonably set and will fall better once fully furnished. Moved lightly, positively and without restriction.

Correct fore and hindquarters. Lovely tail set already being carried over back. Fringing on ears starting to develop. Wonderful alert expression. One to watch for the future.
