Judge ME Barnett

I would first like to give my sincere thanks to the Officers and Committee for the honour of judging at this prestigious show. The warm welcome and hospitality extended was superb.My thanks also to the exhibitors for the excellent quality entry a big thank you to my various stewards throughout the day who managed the ring so well. There was such a friendly relaxed atmosphere which made for a very enjoyable appointment, I will treasure the day in my judging calendar.

Thanks to my fellow judges on the day as the standard of exhibits sent forward was very high making for strong competition. But I couldn't ignore the Flat coated retriever Osborne-Browns Cassiopi Phynns Tribute By Perrymel what a beautiful dog classic head and typical kind eye. Elegant outline displaying such balance both standing and on the move. All male without coarseness he filled your eye for breed type and quality with effortless movement.In typical flatcoat temperament his tail never stopped wagging. A picture of health his coat just gleamed in the sunshine really depicting the saying "Fit for Function,Fit for Form and Life" and at 18mths old still only a youngster in this slow maturing breed, so the best is yet to come. He impressed me greatly and I was delighted to award him BIS.

RBIS I awarded to the Border terrier bitch Waldrons Intack Blue Pearl another who fulfilled all the breed requirements super otter head and keen expression, excelled in neck and shoulders, made a very pleasing outline. Good rib well carried back. Straight front and narrow throughout with racy hindquarters. Correct tail amd set carried well. Easy span and came to hand with ease.She was in shown in correct double jacket in fit hard condition and moving freely and accurately.

BPIS the Sealyham terrier Wonnacotts Whitepeppers Saturday Night Fever At Jacott A lovely quality male puppy with super breed type, excellent head and expression, good neck and shoulders, excellent depth of chest and well bodied with well sprung rib. Correct size and well off for bone. Very well presented in excellent harsh coat of correct length. Moving out free and true with plenty of drive from well muscled quarters whilst maintaining a firm top line.

RBPIS the Petit basset griffon vendeen Lewis's Putjade Bertoli At Tangaer 9mth old another Lovely puppy male and with such potential, excellent head and typical expression, good neck and shoulders with good length of body with superb balance in outline, super bone and standing on the best of feet. Very attractive markings good pigmentation, correct harsh coat naturally presented. Level topline retained on the move, well turned stifle & powerful hind action

They made a typical and attractive final line-up.All four I predict with a very good show careers in the making.


1st Connors Mr Moonlight of Ringablok, Lovely breed stamp of this well bodied mature male, excellent head proportions and correct expression.Excellent bone. Moved out well fore and aft BOB

2nd Connors Vangence Diamonds-n-pearls Of Ringablok, another who was good for breed type very feminine head and good expression. Just couldn't match 1st for muscletone.

My thanks to the Cesky breed for their support the AVNSC classes feeling very much like a breed class entry.



Sealyham, Thomas's Cibach Cresendo, Excellent bitch of much quality lovely head, expression, dark eye and keen expression, good for size neck and shoulders, nice depth of brisket, level topline, tail on top, super coat, condition very well presented and handled. Showed and moved out very well, accurately and with purpose.





Border, Ritchies Lynbos Imperial Jade, pleasing otter shaped head,dark eye and good expression.Good bone, narrow front and can be easily spanned Rather short of coat but correctly textured. Moved out well.

I was presented with very difficult choices here in these very well filled classes of juniors. The standard of handling was excellent throughout and each of the juniors should be very proud of their achievements today, I know that I am, with these youngsters in charge of their chosen breeds we can foresee a very bright future for the canine world.
I was delighted to award overall Best handler to Libby Jones a young lady of considerable maturity in the ring. She carried out all her patterns quietly and efficiently, whilst gently giving the commands to her charge and praising when necessary. Both her and her Sealyham were in total unison throughout. I'm sure that we will hear much, much more of this exceptional young lady in the future.
I would also like to take this opportunity to
commend Melissa Osborne-Brown who handling her Flat coated retriever did a remarkable job with a breed that is not the easiest to train and keep theirconcentration, which she did admirably, again she also handled extremely well and with a lovely gentle considerate attitude. Sadly in the challenge for BJH she was not as clean and fluid on her corners But again I predict another of our handlers of the future.
Also Gwenllian Rees another competent
handler,handling an 11mth old Chinese Crested puppy who was as should be a typical puppy and as to be expected at this very young age needs time to develop with his handler. I wish them lots of fun learning together.
