Judge: Mrs S Diment
Japanese Chin – Judge Mrs S Diment (Alstella)
I would like to thank the exhibitors for allowing me to judge their dogs. I had a very enjoyable day with such a lovely backdrop of Windsor castle.
From my last judging appointment I found that bodies overall have improved with more width of the chest. I do like a nice strong well bodied dog with a good reach of neck with driving free movement. Movement is still something which needs working on, there are a lot of dogs which move very well one way but are very close the other.
I am very pleased with my winners and I was pleased to hear my BOB was shortlisted in the group.

1st Davidson’s Ch Hysterical Saurai Sou at sharlarna. I do like this boy and have given him a reserve cc in the past. He has great width to his head with nice dark large eyes. This leads to a good reach of neck. He is square with a nice cobby body and a good spring of rib. The width he has leads to super driving movement which makes him looks like he floats around the ring. He is such a happy young man! Very pleased to award him DCC and BOB, was very pleased to hear he was shortlisted in the group.
