Maidenhead & District Canine Society,
Thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge at this show and to my exhibitors for the privilege of assessing their dogs.
Puppy Entries: 2
1st Mrs R & Miss O Busby s, Calvenace Killer Queen:Pretty baby, good for size with a super coat of nice texture and colour. Good head shape with nice proportions, well-set ears which she uses to good effect. Pigmentation and eye colour is ok. Mouth ok. Compact body, short in loin, nice tail set. Movement still loose, coming and going, as puppies often are but should tighten with maturity. BP
1st J A B & C C Mortimore s, Glendown Coraline
1st Mrs C & Mr N Bristow s, Kellynack Viva La Passione For Avard: A stocky, compact bitch, with a lovely coat of good colour and texture. Good head proportions. Ears are good size and shape and used well. Dark eye and pigment. Mouth ok. Good depth of chest, short coupled. Moving with drive but a little wide in front, for my preference, which affected her placing in the challenge. RBOB

This class had three nice exhibits, each with their own merits but the decision ultimately was all about movement.
1st Mrs L & Miss D Witheyman s, Steefsgrace Dutch Kiss By Dascol: Only one way to describe this dog really a pocket rocket! Very well-handled. Dainty feminine bitch. Coming up to 2 � yrs her coat texture and colour are getting there. Could be a touch stronger in head but correct planes. Pigment and eye colour ok. Good muzzle with the best dentition of the day. Neck adequate. Well ribbed and short-coupled. Good tail set. Found rather too-profuse leg coat a little distracting on the move but undeniably straight action fore and aft and covered the ground with a fluid gait. So pleased to see her go on to take a well-deserved G3.BOB, TG3
2nd Mrs C & Mr N Bristow s, Lilwaukee Leroy Brown For Avard: A lot to like about this mature dog. Upstanding, well-balanced and with a good coat of correct texture and colour. Good head and ear placement, mouth ok. Good length of neck, strong rear quarters. Moved ok in a workmanlike way but lacked the enthusiasm and drive of my class winnner.
3rd Mr & Mrs G Lawrence s, Emalot Little Miss Star
