All IRELAND BULL BREEDS ASSOCIATION All Breed Championship Show
JUDGING BEST IN SHOW

 

It was an absolute privilege for me to be asked to judge Best in Show for a committee that also gave me my very first start in judging at Green Star Level.  Sincere thanks to Colette and Johnny Muldoon and the All Ireland Bull Breeds team for their trust in me. It was my ambition through study, and the natural progression required by the Irish Kennel Club, to progress gradually through the groups, and to finally achieve my ultimate aim, Best In Show All Breeds Championship.  It took 23 years for me to reach this platform, so please excuse me for feeling so proud.

Judging for
Västernorrlands Kennelklubb International All Breed Championship Show
 in Sundsvall, Sweden

         

I am very grateful to Annalena and the hardworking committee of Vasternorrlands Kennelklubb
it was a great honour to judge at their International Show in Sundsvall, Sweden.
I must also thank my excellent ring stewards Ann-Marie Lindberg and Mari Lundborg Sjastedt, for keeping me on the straight and narrow.

 Judging My Beloved Breed - The Tibetan Terrier
Thank you to the Committee and my lovely Ring Stewards for keeping me on track with courtesy and good humour

Class 1782 OB (7 - 2)
1 Tempest’s Shadeacre Fly The Flag For Alilah - A 2½ year old black of such breed type and quality she caught my eye immediately.  Her correctly proportioned head had such classic expression, with her well-developed lower jaw giving the resolute expression often missing.  Her large round dark eyes, peeping from under a beautiful headpiece drew me in.  She was well balanced, and of good size and shape, and stood on round flat feet, supporting good bone and strength of muscle.  Enough neck, excellent lay of shoulder, tight elbows, level topline with just the right arch and strength of loin, sporting the correct tail-set, correct turn of stifle and low set hocks.  She was presented in excellent double coat of the best texture, and moved freely with style and soundness.  She never put a foot wrong and earned her CC and BOB with ease. 


Class 1779 JB
(7 - 0)
1
Erskine-Jones’ Unohoo La La Land - Sable sixteen month lady so balanced and typical I was taken with her from the time she entered the ring, with a beautiful feminine head of correct ratio and expression, and such gorgeous dark melting eyes.  She was sturdy and well-muscled throughout, well ribbed back with good depth, tight elbows and good lay of shoulders into level topline with correct tail-set, encased in a beautiful coat of correct texture, presented to perfection.  Her angulations were so that she moved with enviable freedom and style, covering the ground easily with excellent reach and drive.  She pushed my CC winner hard and I awarded her RCC.

Class 1773 LD (6 - 0)
1
Guziolek's Boshanti Neville - 2½ year old sable that caught my eye on entering the ring, and he did not disappoint, as what I saw with my eyes I felt with my hands.  Although up to size he showed no coarseness.   I loved his masculine head of excellent proportions, and beautiful eyes, carried atop the strong neck leading to well laid shoulders.  He was so square and commanding in stance, with sturdy body, tight elbows, level topline, and strong loin, excellent tail-set and such strength of muscle.  His movement was effortless with good reach and drive, holding his virtues on the move. I felt no hesitation in awarding him the CC


Unfortunately I don't have photographs of my reserves, or the other class winners, except Best Puppy and my choice for PGB

 

Class 1774 OD (7 - 0)
1 STUCHBURY Incalux Perchance To Dream About Kutula JW Sh.CM. - This three year old black was very typical of our breed, with no exaggerations evident.  His strong masculine head and expression, was set well on strong neck, level topline, tight elbows, slight rise over loin, and complimented by an excellent tail-set.  I was impressed with his condition and muscle, as I was with his presentation of coat and texture.  He held his square outline, and was stylish on the move.  I was pleased to give him the RCC



For My Full Critiques Please See Under
Judging Experience


Class 1777 MPB (10 - 1)
1
James’ Waterley Partypiece - What can I say about this little madam as she caught me hook line and sinker the minute she put her first foot inside the ring, and at barely six months just earning her right to be there.  She was so balanced and had everything in correct proportions.    Such a stylish black and white girl with ultra-feminine head and expressive eyes, she screamed at me to watch her move, and move she did with such an attitude; she could not be denied first place and BP

Class 1780 PGB (11 - 2)
1 Hindle's Abelenus Lil Rayna Sunshine - Gold and white 20 month’s old of good balance and type.  Up to size but retains femininity and shows no coarseness.   She carries the correct head with excellent pigment and round dark eyes.  Her strong medium neck flows into well laid shoulders, and has tight elbows and good spring of rib with depth.  Her topline, turn of stifle and low set hocks are also correct, and she carries a beautiful coat of correct texture.  If I am being picky, I would like a little less of her, but her square profile, and freedom of movement, which was a pleasure to watch, would not let me deny her the class win.

My sincere thanks to Mr Ronald W James, Mrs Hilary Male and all committee members of Richmond Dog Show Society, for the kind invitation and opportunity to judge my breed, and to both my stewards for keeping the ring running so efficiently with courtesy and good humour, ensuring my experience in the ring was very pleasant.  I was delighted with my entry and especially the puppies, many showing great promise, with their breeders thus ensuring the future of the Tibetan Terrier.  I thoroughly enjoyed the appointment and found it extremely interesting and pleasurable. All of the exhibitors, without exception, showed grace and courtesy whatever the placing.  I did find the bitch classes generally held better quality than the dog classes, and felt very privileged to go over such splendid exhibits.

As I look forward to 2018 my heart is full of pride and gratitude, not only to the judges who thought so highly of my Tibetan Terriers in 2017, but also to my precious friends who give me so much help and support.   I am also blessed to have such special puppy owners, who keep me updated with photos, and some of whom, no matter what the distance, come to support me at so many shows.  I truly appreciate you all.

I was also granted the privilege to judge in Norway and Sweden again several times, and Ireland too, but despite these commitments, and indeed attending more family weddings and parties, also the blooming hospital stays, the Siddhartha Team managed to amass 26 Green Stars within such a hectic year.
