PAIGNTON CH SHOW 2014

Judge  GILL POLLARD

Thank you to the committee for asking me to judge.

PD (1) 1 Draper’s Desalazara Jerez, stood alone but deserved his win. 10 months, tall imposing youngster who just needs time now to fill out his frame, good head with lovely eye colour & shape, giving expression. Excellent pigment, would like tighter lips to complete the picture. Straight topline, medium angulation, good bone, tail of correct length. Strong hocks which he uses well when he moves, when he managed to keep it all together on the move went well for his owner. BP. JD (0). PGD (3)
These 3 dogs were all of different type & movement won it on the day. 1 Munson’s Pyrbern Blond Lynx, would just like to say have seen this dog at shows not enjoying it, but today pulled out all the stops for his owner & did everything she asked of him, 3 year old light blaireau, has a good overall height & balance when standing with good angulation. Head I would like a bit more width on back skull, has nice eyes, with excellent pigment, good body & bone, well muscled, tight feet & moved out steadily. Well presented; 2 Locket’s Pyradanti Casinoroyale, 6 year old blaireau dog, appealed for his nice head shape, with good pigment, tight lips, a bit too much stop. Good body & bone, well presented, would like more rear angulation, just a bit straight in stifle. It turned out that this was his first show, so well done. you handled him very well; 3 Meakin’s Amandjena Cleveland Ohio. LD (8) How nice to see a full line up of quality dogs. 1 Waters’ Sketrick Next Connexion, he took my eye on entering the ring & was not disappointed when going over him. He looked the part today. In excellent coat & body condition, love this dogs head shape with correct width to length ratio with fill under the eye, I would like a darker eye, excellent pigmentation. Well presented & moved out well today. CC & BOB, I was told this was his 3rd ticket today so making him up to a champion; 2 Ford’s Desalazara Fernando, 2 year old. This dog will have his day, just needs to body up & mature. He has a stunning head, & beautiful eye, true Pyrenean expression. And when moving really drives out with his rear. He just lost out on first to a mature dog; 3 Downes’ Pyrpressure’s My American Dream at Belshanmish.

RCC; 2 Kenyon & Ward’s Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna, tall imposing looking 2˝ year old, has the size & stance & is well balanced, again loved his head, tight well pigmented lips, good dentition.
