I would first like to thank the committee of EABTC for inviting me to judge my first Breed Club Show - I thoroughly enjoyed my day. I would also like to extend my thanks to my efficient ring stewards and all who entered and showed under me, bringing their quality exhibits for me to go over.

1st RAGNAROK BALDER AT POLANCA (MISS & MR L & T SHEPPARD & HOWES)
10 year old
red and white dog who I have always had a soft spot for. Head is well filled
and turned, giving good expression with ears on top. Mouth under. Long neck
into well placed shoulders. Deep chest with straight front, excellent rear
quarters, that moved him with drive. Still a top showman and appears much
younger than his years. Well handled. RBD

1st BULLYVIEW SNOW HAWK (MR & MRS C & D WALLIS)
7 month old brindle and white with
strong profile and good finish. Small neat ears which are right on top. Correct
mouth. I would like more length of upper
arm and better rear angulation, however he has a straight front and is short
backed. Slightly dropped his topline on the move but moved ok once settled.
2nd ABENAKI PERFECT STORM (MRS A CHIVERS)
7 month old with a gleaming white jacket. Head is wide with gentle turn, would like more fill. Although well placed, his ears are soft and down. Good mouth. Long neck into correctly laid shoulders.
