Thank you to the Club for inviting me to judge males at the Championship show.

I have to say that since I last judged Papillons shoulders have improved although there are a number of other things still to improve. I feel that muzzles are becoming shorter and more blunt, totally wrong for the breed and tends to give a wrong look for the breed. In conjunction with that comes a shorter neck and combined with this a shorter leg making the dogs appear longer in back and unbalanced. They should ‘appear’ longer, not actually be longer!

A few had the wrong coat which must be single coated and no sign of trimming. Imagine my surprise to find one with a shaved and painted face!

Never forget the first line of the breed standard says ‘Dainty, well balanced little dog’ – some examples are losing this definition.

I and my co-judge Liz Bartram both chose Ch Feorlig Smart Cookie for BIS – a lovely example of the breed. I felt she has such a lovely head, correctly balanced and well marked with good sized ears, round tipped and excellent fringes. A good reach of neck into excellent shoulders and a level topline. She moved extremely well and we both agreed she deserved her Best In Show.

When it came to Best Puppy we both came to the same decision with Gleniren Daddy’s Starmaker, a lovely young 7 ½ month old puppy. She is fine boned with a sweet head and lovely ear placement, rounded tips and good fringing for age. She also has a level topline, a little longer in body, along with a well set and carried tail. Firm body condition, a silky coat and moved well with enthusiasm. Best Puppy In Show.

It was a great honour for me to be asked to judge at this show, which I decided would be my last appointment. My first Club Show was a Papillon (Butterfly Dog) Club Open show (way back in 1993), judging bitches and I was delighted to be able to finish my judging with an appointment at the same Club’s Championship Show in 2022 again judging bitches. This Club is the oldest Papillon Club and will celebrate its 100th Anniversary in 2023/2024, a fantastic milestone. With this in mind, for those bitches I judged on the day my thoughts were centred on would they keep up and progress the breed and help keep Papillons to the Standard that so well describes them. Then, did they have the extra something in the ring that said “look at me” that made them the happy, lively, dainty, exquisite butterfly that so epitomises the Papillon.

I would like to make some general observations before I bow out of judging. I often hear people talking about types, why? We shouldn’t have a type we should be breeding to attain the Papillon Breed Standard, both Papillons and Phalenes. Phalenes should not be overlooked and it is a great shame that there not more out in competition, the only difference is the ear set and they can look beautiful.

When looking at your own dogs you must judge them truly, re read the standard, actually judge your own dogs more critically than others. The art of using pedigrees seems to be disappearing. Learn to assess pedigrees, write your own with the plus and minus on every dog. With your breeding bitches, what do you need to improve, and how strong is this in your line, so look at dogs in the behind your stock. It is important look at stud dogs and use those which could help breed out any undesirable fault. Make sure you never double up on a fault. I would like to make a plea also to everyone to make use of the DNA health checks that are available now. Sound, healthy stock that fit the breed standard and that are importantly made available for breeding can only but ensure our beautiful papillons as a breed way into future.

As with any dog, first and foremost we must have correctly constructed bodies, the first thing a judge will note. Without this the light and free movement a Papillon should have will not be there. It was concerning to me that I saw far too much variation and that on the day, and, as I have seen for some time now, the elegant, dainty fine boned example of the breed is becoming so much harder to find. In particular, for what is such an important characteristic of a Papillon, I saw too many incorrect heads with poor stops and not having the required length from tip of nose to stop approximately one third the length of the head, some with short legs which can never be classed as elegant. Poor fronts and narrow chests were present and hare feet, as described by the standard are still not the norm. It is a real shame that good preparation and presentation was lacking in some exhibits and that dirty teeth still persist. I was pleased with my class winners and in my BCC, RBCC and BPB I found really super examples which so made my day. With the full agreement of my co judge I was thrilled that the BCC and BPB were made BIS and BPIS.

My thanks to everyone kind enough to enter my last show as a judge. My huge thanks to my two stewards who were a great asset and and kept everything running smoothly. Some final words, if you win that’s great, but, if you don’t, look up the line and honestly consider why the judge has made those placings. I too have been beaten in the ring but have looked up the line ahead of me and acknowledged that on the day I was beaten by a better dog.

MPB (7,1) 1st: Mrs I & Mr G Robb’s Gleniren Daddy’s Starmaker. R/S/W. An extremely confident, dainty, nearly nine month old, beautifully prepared and presented. She certainly knows how to make an entrance and say look at me, she has a well marked clean face, with lovely dark eyes, correct fine muzzle, leading into good stop and rise to top of skull, ears at perfect angle, good fringing for age, medium length of neck, correctly placed shoulder with elbows tucked in, excellent spring of rib, good length of loin, movement which is free and light maintaining her level top line when standing and on the move, correct silky coat, she has everything you would want in a puppy bitch so was pleased to make her my Best Puppy, and, with the joint agreement of my co judge Mrs Carol Lees (Lafford) delighted that she went Best Puppy In Show. 2: Mrs M Whitehill’s Amicae Belle of the Ball. I loved this very happy little tricolour, nearly 7 month old, great to see her tail wagging and enjoying her day. She had a correct head, w lovely dark eyesell placed ears with fringing just coming through, dark eyes, good shoulders, well balanced body, fine boned, good turn of stifle, her movement was light and free with top line held on the stand and move. Will be interested to see how she matures. One to watch.3. Carl Cooper’s Wilachans Bindie.

PB (7,0) 1: Drs M L L & E Anne Griffith’s Manawyddan to a Wild Rose. Very attractive rich red/white, nearly 10 month old. She has a really well marked head correctly proportioned with mobile and well fringed ears for age, lovely dark eyes and a fine silky coat. She has a good muscle tone for one so young, correctly proportioned body, good turn of stifle with really good propulsion from the rear, her tail was carried correctly completing the outline. Great happy temperament. 2 : Mrs C Anderson’s Pappretty Georgy Girl. B/W, almost 12 months. another nice bitch correct to the standard in height and length, good head with nice neat face markings, dark eyes, well set ears, lovely length of neck, leading into good lay of shoulder, well proportioned body, great to see correct hare feet and she has a lovely elegant outline. She has good movement but to see her at her best her handler needs to slow down a bit. 3: Miss S Orchard’s Panspayon Northern Lights.

JB (7,1) 1: Mrs C Lee-Slater’s Graycaz Pap Reeka. 14 months. Rich red/white Lovely head so well proportioned giving that lovely elegant look, correct medium reach of neck, she has a good body correct in height to length ratio, good straight front and spring of rib, level topline, coat coming through nicely and tail carried in a high arc. 2 : Karen Diprose’s Lilacrose Touch of Talent. 17 months. Dainty Black/white of good quality, another nicely proportioned head, again I like the elegance, her body is nicely constructed, perhaps a little more turn of stifle , but she moves well, would benefit from a better tail carriage. 3 : Shireen Last’s Lilacrose Magic Mya.

YB (3,0)1: Katharine Wykes’ Purepixie Lucy with Diamond. Quality two year old tricolour, she is alert and interested in her environment. Her head a little heavier than previous winners but not coarse, she has well placed large mobile ears, dark eye, and good stop, her body is well constructed and firm, correct silky coat, high tail carriage, moves well, just needs to correct her front when standing, but gives an overall nice picture. 2: Mrs C Lee-Slater’s Magic Sunrise Natalie (Imp Lva) (NAF). A clear red/white with a really nice head, perfect ear set, and lovely dark eyes, she has a medium neck leading into level topline, her chest is rather broad and spoils her front outline, she has good propulsion from the rear. She carries her tail nicely, but on the day wouldn’t settle to the job in hand so really didn’t show herself to advantage. 3: Shireen Last’s Lilacrose Magic Mya.

NB (8,2) 1. Mrs J Scovell’s Stagedoor Souffle. A 21/2 year old tricolour of great quality, lovely head so correct in proportions, beautiful dark eye, really lovely ear shape, well set and fringed, medium length of neck leading into correctly placed shoulder, excellent depth of chest and good length of loin, coat silky and presented perfectly. When stood she can be nervous of her surroundings and drop her tail but once on the move she flows with real elegance showing off her super construction and was very deserving of her first place. 2: Mrs C Lee-Slater’s Graycaz Oh La La. 16 month tricolour. A lovely elegant head, with beautiful well placed and fringed ears, great reach of neck adding to her elegant shape, she has a good body, good shoulder and depth of chest, good loin, just needs to mature a bit more. 3: Karen Diprose’s Lilacrose Touch of Talent.

GB (6,0)1: Miss K F & Mr E L Miller & Ryan’s Feorlig Say it with Flowers. R/W 13 months, a very smart red/white and one to watch. She has a well proportioned head, lovely dark eye and perfect ear carriage, fine muzzle, good stop and rise to top of head, correct length of neck and shoulder, liked her depth of chest and good loin and rear angulation, level top line when standing and on the move, coat silky, movement when viewed from rear is parallel and she strode out so well. 2: Drs M L L & E Anne Griffiths’s Berestead Belle Epoque Manawdyddan. A very elegant black and white, her head is great, dark eyes good stop correctly set large well fringed mobile ears, her body is lovely and firm and well formed, she has positive movement firm and true. Slightly out of coat, but has nothing to hide, will be interested to see her future in the show ring. 3: Gill Geary’s Taliesyn Black Azalea.

PGB (9,5)1: Ms K & Mrs A Bull’s Chrysalis Star of the Storm. Tricolour, symmetrical head markings, good stop, dark eye, mobile ears and lovely reach of neck, level topline, shoulders well underneath her and elbows tight into the chest, moved well round the ring, would like to see her with hare feet to finish the picture, but overall an honest bitch. 2: Carl Cooper’s Wilachans Bo. Red/sable, I would like a more refined head and ears a little pointed but a she has a good structural frame, her coat is fine and silky, lovely plumed tail and again good to see elbows tucked in, she has a lovely length to her body, moves with style, maintaining a good top line. 3: Sylvia Glanville-Hughes’s Taliesyn Floribunda of Brandonburg.�

LB (11,2)1st: Angela Matthews’ Berestead Haute Couture. A really lovely red/white beautiful head, with fantastic well rounded and fringed ears, again that elegant head I was looking for, correctly proportioned. She has correct reach of neck when alert and paying attention but when stood she can seem to lose interest and “slump” and the neck and elegance goes. She has a good lay of shoulder, level top line, excellent depth of chest and spring of rib, fine bone and correct hare feet, she moves so well. She is deserving of top honours but it’s a great shame that she can get bored bored and this showed up in the challenge. 2: Lt Cdr BDC & Mrs PA Cox’s Briar Rose for Ringland. A good quality red/sable, she has a pleasing gentle head, lovely fringed correctly set mobile ears, nice reach of neck and lovely firm body, correct silky coat, moves with great style 3: Mr T R & Mrs C Headley’s Yeldeah Lady in Red.

OB (11,2)1: Miss K F & Mr E L Miller & Ryan’s Ch Feorlig Smart Cookie JW. So beautifully prepared and presented this bitch has everything I was looking for in a papillon, she is dainty, has perfectly proportioned super elegant head framed with well fringed, well set and mobile ears, glorious dark eyes, and, so desirable in our breed, neck of medium length leading into correct shoulder placement, elbows tucked in close, her chest is deep with a perfect rib cage, giving plenty of heart room, proper length of body with level top line when standing and on the move, her legs are fine boned with lovely hare feet. When she moves it is with a light flowing motion showing real elegance, her well stifled rear legs give the necessary propulsion from the rear showing super parallel movement, her coat is silky and flowing falling flat on back and sides. For me it was a great honour to go over her. Perhaps I would have liked just a slightly higher arched tail over the back but the her overall top quality is without parallel and I had no hesitation in awarding her the BCC. I was so pleased to see her awarded BIS with the full agreement of my co judge. 2: Mrs I & Mr G Robb’s Suniren Daddy’s Girl Gleniren. A very interesting tricolour of quality, her head is well proportioned with a lovely gentle expression, correct ear set, good reach of neck, she has a lovely firm body with good construction, movement is light and free she just flows her whole frame is very good, certainly has a great future ahead of her, RBCC. 3: Lt Cdr BDC & Mrs PA Cox’s Ch Tricianbri Tuppence a Kiss JW SHCM.

VB (9,2) 1: Miss S Orchard’s Ringland Yoko’s Solo at Panspayon SHCM SHCEX VW. It was great to be able to go over this super veteran bitch, she is elegant with an expressive head and well fringed ears, she has great construction from lay of shoulder to turn of stifle. Her movement is flowing and true. Although I would like a higher tail set, she presents a lovely picture. 2: Mrs A C & Ms E G N Borg’s Ch Petress Dark and Daring. Here we have another honest type, well balanced, lovely expressive gentle head, length of neck correct, firm body with beautifully silky coat, moved with a good free flowing action, a lovely dainty girl. 3: Mandy Keown’s Ch Jorgealin Moon Magic SHCM.

OPhaleneB (1) 1: Mrs S Morrell’s Ir Ch Temelora Adele. She stood alone but a very good Phalene, she has a nice head, with the correct ear carriage, good length of neck and lovely firm body, such a shame there weren’t any more.
