Northern Ireland SBTC Open Show Saturday 26th February 2022

My appreciation to the Club for inviting me to Judge this wonderful Breed Show and my gift of beautiful Belfast Crystal. Very grateful to my two Ring Stewards Frank and Ashleigh who both done a great job of keeping everything flowing throughout. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Super proud and privileged to have had such a wonderful entry of dogs and bitches to assess. Dogs were generally in good condition. Unfortunately, a few lacked confidence/training which affected their performance on the day.

DOGS MPD (2, 1abs)

1 st 65 Windsor Smith’s, Remstaff Thinking Out Loud 9 month old, Red/White that stood alone in his class. A well balanced youngster. Head of good proportions, with a pleasing expression. Good pigmentation, dark round eye, clean foreface, correct bite and good underjaw. Well angulated front with a good width and bone, standing on tidy feet. Ample rib, short coupled and well angulated rear quarters. Moved out well for his handler. I think he will get better as he gains his confidence with maturity and exposure. Unfortunate to meet my 1st in Puppy Dog today in the subsequent class
