My thanks to Crufts for the appointment to judge at this prestigious show & the exhibitors for a quality entry especially from the Continent. Thanks also to my stewards who did a sterling job.
On a general note, temperaments were fine. There were some poor mouths with not so straight teeth & very small teeth. Movement left a lot to be desired especially from the rear. Heads in most had the desired stop & correct placed ears.
We have some good young stock coming through so it bodes well for the future.
VD (6,1a) 1 Grainger’s Ch Devil In Disguise, red of 9 years, in excellent condition for age, nice topline, in good coat, still has good dentition, thoroughly enjoyed his day, moved well in front;
