Judges by Mrs Joy Jolley
There was a quality entry. General soundness has improved over the years, but too many otherwise well made exhibits were rather narrow in chest therefore lacked the desired cobby appearance. Some were too straight in the shoulder to move with the correct elegant action, some were rather heavy in bone & had round rather than the correct hare feet, & a few had rather flat skull resulting in a coarse appearance. Any of these faults can result in a loss of true breed type. Therefore I was looking for a square, cobby dog with fine bone & correct movement, round typical head & a happy temperament. All my main winners displayed these characteristics & all were in tip-top condition.
PD (4) 1 Jackson’s El Conquistador Beneto Bohemia, 10 months r/w with pleasing head, large well set eyes, fine bone, good neck & shoulder, level back. A little long in leg & well up to size; 2 Dowson’s Anbarees Kung Fu Panda among Blynblay, large round head with expressive eyes, wide open nostrils, well cushioned muzzle.
