Adult class: following order : 35, 43, 36, 30, 10, 57
Lots of dogs of nice quality so I will pull out a few that struck my eye for the final line up : 10,30, 35,36,41,43,44,57 . They stood out because of their breed type : which is a combination of size ,type of head , shape and soundness. Nice to see that some dogs collected more points than the champion dogs. Which is correct because I think some dogs in the open class are good enough to become champions .
Again it is a pity that I could not touch the dogs . Judging is not easy and often a dilemma. and touching the dogs might change the following order.
My first is nr. 35 A very feminine bitch with a lovely shape. On the move she keeps her topline and the back is tighter on the move than it looks on the photo. I love her excellent angulated front that stands well under the body. When you look at the balance of a dog and especially the front , you can draw a line through the withers and front legs. I love to see a lot of dog in front of that. Than a dog usually has good angulations and a fore chest .
The following three dogs have the same points. They are all of excellent quality and of a lovely breedtype but they differ in minor details. Some had better photo’s standing than others . So in the final judgement I tried to compare them on the move .
Second in this class is the glamorous sable dog in the bloom of his life and a abundant coat of a rich orange colour nr. 43 . He has a beautiful head with very high set ears , which tip lovely forwards! On the photo standing I would like to see his front a little more under the body but on the move he has a lovely long stride in front and good drive in rear. So it could be the angle of the photo. Again I would like to touch him. I Just like a longer tail.
Third in this class is the elegant sable dog of excellent breedtype. He has a nice head a smiling expression and well set ears. He is very correct on the move .
Forth in class is the tricolour dog nr. 30: with a striking head. He has the best head of this class with a sweet eye that is medium size and almond shaped. Still I have the feeling that he can mature a bit more. I love his elegant flowing outline and excellent construction. His movement is smooth, easy with drive and good stride. I like to see him happier.
Fifth is the very feminine bitch nr. 10 who stands perfect on the photo. Showing her excellent angulations and lovely front . Next to that she has a very sweet expression. Maybe she could move a touch faster for more drive and show off her excellent contruction Number six in this class is the well constructed and masculine shaded sable dog nr. 57 . I love his overall balance which he shows on the move . Tail should not be carried higher . Very correct and masculine in head and lovely ears. Showed very happy.
