2013

The Northern King Charles Spaniel Club’s Championship Show 20. 4. 2013 at Grenoside, Sheffield.

I want to thank the Show Committee for inviting me to judge at this well run and friendly show. I want to thank all the exhibitors who brought their dogs for me, 153 charlies was a huge entry. I want to thank also my excellent ring steward Ron Stewart who made my job to go so smoothly.

After having judged charlies  about 30 years in FCI countries I was honored to judge them the first time on CC level in England. In this huge entry the quality varied a lot. I was pleased with my class winners and in some big classes lovely dogs had to go out cardless.  I was looking after a correct size, cobby and sound charlie with beautiful head, correct coat quality, moving well and happy temperament. There were many too big, too long in body, too low tailsets and very narrow rear movements.  I was very pleased to see so many quality dogs in puppy classes.
