BEST VETERAN – Isfryn Park End JW
This was a show that I had anticipated with much pleasure and was not disappointed. My thanks to you and your officers and committee for a memorable day in pleasant company and a friendly atmosphere. I really hope that I have not offended any exhibitors with my critique, but in critiques praise and criticism go hand in hand.
My impression overall was that the bitches were rather better than the dogs but that is my opinion and I was really pleased with my BIS, RBIS and BP. I was grateful to my two excellent stewards who kept me on the straight and narrow and to Terry who worked hard all day taking the photos.

Thank you to the Officers & Committee for inviting me to judge the special classes at this lovely, friendly & well organised show. All had superb temperaments & I found some super exhibits. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to judge your lovely dogs.
Special Junior Dog or Bitch (9,1 abs)
1. Harrisons' Glenbrows Picture Me Now. Mature & confident 9 month old male who is balanced throughout with plenty of bone & substance. Lovely head with kind dark eye. Correct length of neck leading into super front assembly. Good spring of rib for one so young. Liked his overall angulation showing the correct turn of stifle with a lovely depth of second thigh, well let down hocks & the best of feet. He was turned out in super condition with a gleaming coat & moved effortlessly covering the ground with ease. Another super upstanding male from this kennel & just my 'cup of tea', could have taken him home.
2 Attwoods' Kylowen Demelza. Pretty13 month old bitch of smaller frame but lovely balance. Good front with nice layback of shoulder, lovely rise over the loin, correct turn of stifle, well let down hocks,tidy feet, moved well.
3 Sutherlands' Jacranella Solo.
Special Post Graduate Dog or Bitch (6,2 abs)
1 Revills' Julita Rokahula JW, One I have judged before; pretty girl who has a lovely outgoing nature, correct length of neck with good front & lovely rise over the loin. Good rear angulation stood on tight 'catlike' feet. Presents an overall balanced picture & the best mover in this class.
2 Lancetts' Coedybrain Nia at Cwmbeili, I liked this bitch a lot & similar remarks apply as 1, but on the day just not as positive in movement as my winner.
3 Smiths' Isfryn Hocus Pocus JW.
Special Open Dog or Bitch (7,2 abs)
Two super bitches headed this class.
1 Picks' Sh Ch Llon Lili Bengam, Such a pretty broken coated bitch. Super balance throughout with lovely flowing angles fore & aft. Stood on the best of feet & moved with purpose & drive, presented in super coat & lovely hard condition, a worthy champion.
2 Sutherlands' Ch Julita Rezanella Of Jacranella, Lovely balance throughout & has the best of fronts with a lovely reach of neck, correct bend of stifle with good rise over the loin. A favourite of mine but today didn't have the furnishings as 1;
3 Philipsons' Menstonia Marksman.
