JOHN THIRLWELL (Dog Judge)
I started showing in my early teens firstly Irish Setters then in 1976 bought my first Welsh Springer Spaniel, from Noel and Dodo Hunton-Morgans, Dalati Gwent who became my first champion. To date I have owned or bred 38 UK Champions, 34 of which have been Welsh Springers and one each of the following breeds, English & Irish Setter, Pointer & Cocker Spaniel.
I am passed to award Challenge Certificates to all the Gundog Breeds bar 1, and judge the Group. I look forward to judging dogs at SWWSSC show in March.
BARABRA ATTWOOD (Bitch Judge)
My first Welsh was in 1974, a working boy, after he retired I spent several years handling for other people, something I still do, now mainly gundogs back then in the working/pastoral group. In 1988 after marrying we acquired 2 half-sisters. Solva Brunnhilde and Stormpasture Tudor Slipper who did very well. Our breeding/showing really took off with Solva Isolde (thank you Jean) who not only produced lovely pups but also became an Irish Show Champion. Kylowen our affix is Cornish for “happy dog” - well I am Cornish and the dogs are very happy! In the past I have shown cows, sheep, horses and with Ken, fish including a CC. Since starting judging welsh in 1995 I have had the pleasure of going over some beautiful dogs, I am honoured to have been asked to judge at the Club Show and wish everyone and their dogs a happy day.
