Thank you to the Three Counties society and also to the exhibitors for the lovely entry, we were so lucky with the weather and a nice big ring outside in the sunshine. There certainly were some quality dogs on show today but as always with a mixed entry there were some tough decisions to be made in most classes. With some lovely young dogs also on show it bodes well for the future of the breed. I was pleased to find good fine bone, hare feet and generally pretty heads with good stops, lighter eyes in some cases spoilt the expression. Movement was generally good, with a few dogs (young puppies excepted) playing up at crucial moments, it is important to get on top of this and not risk your placing. Finding the two CC winners of such quality was a bonus, and the BOB is just a delight in so many ways, the quality from this kennel never disappoints and these two were from the top draw. Just great young puppies also, with the BP being a real charmer who is sure to mature to something lovely. This is how I saw the breed today and what a truly lovely, good tempered breed we have. Gracious applause from the ringside is always good to hear and completed what proved to be a lovely day.
Normally I would not comment on media insults, however, to the person who felt it necessary to tell me privately I “let the breed down today”, please try to see the overall picture of my placings and try to understand the finer points of the standard throughout, without focusing on fault judging. I am always willing to discuss my placings after the event with exhibitors if required, which I feel is the correct way to act, you never know, you may learn something, I still am.
