I was delighted to be asked to judge the WSS Club of Wales Open Show and thank the committee for their kind invitation. It was a modest entry of 38 dogs making 50 entries but there were some quality dogs present and I was very pleased with my winners. As always there was a lovely atmosphere and a very warm welcome from the committee.

Very feminine head with dark eye. Good angles front and rear. Best mover in this class, very steady and sound. Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Show.

3rd: Martin’s Ferndel Fooling You of Meadway

Puppy Bitch (1,0)

1st: McIlwaine & Reynolds’ Benoveor Galway Girl . Another quality puppy who just needs time to settle in the showring and start enjoying herself. She has a very pretty head, good neck and shoulders. Well made body of good proportions. Good front and back. Just reticent on the move which I'm sure will change with time.

Special Yearling Bitch (1,0)

1st: Dixon’s Glenbrows Regalia. This young lady was a complete newcomer to the showring and led her handlers a merry dance. When she eventually stood, she is a quality bitch with plenty to like. Good head, well made throughout, good front and back. Good bone and body. Has loads of personality and when settled moving is very sound. Just needs lots of ring training and I'm sure we will see a lot more of her in the show ring.

Special Junior Dog or Bitch (1,0)

1st. Cemis’ Taimere’s Talk About Me (right) - 7 month old mature boy. Well constructed dog, good shoulder and plenty of hind angulation. He has a masculine head, with a kind expression. He is well bodied throughout and shown in great condition. On the move he was sound and held his topline, carrying his tail level.

Special Post Graduate Dog or Bitch (6,3)

1st. Jones' Julita Rumours at Trosley (centre) - 2 year old bitch. The most balanced in the class. Well laid shoulder, good depth and spring of ribcage, powerful, muscled hindquarters. Beautiful feminine head. Moved with purpose, carrying her topline well.

2nd. Dawson’s Ferndel Heather Dew - A longer cast bitch but still a lot to like about her. She doesn’t have the overall shape of the winner but she is balanced and was shown in super condition. Moved ok.

Special Len Morgan Memorial Open Stakes Dog or Bitch (5,2)

1st. Lancett’s Sh Ch Coedybrain Nia at Cwmbeili (left) - 5 year old bitch, so full of type. She is the correct size and well balanced overall. Good tight feet, enough bone, well angulated and another shown in super condition. Her head is feminine with a kindly expression. She moved out soundly and effortlessly, holding her shape well.

2nd. Cemis’ Shandwick Viscount - Overall, a larger stamp of dog, who is longer on the leg, but nonetheless he was still pleasing to the eye. He is sound, has a good spring of rib and moved ok but lost out to the bitch on overall type.
