Email from judge Heather Wiles-Fone about the show in Börsborn
…will appear in the next LCD Club newspaper.
Firstly, I would like to thank the Labrador club of Deutschland for inviting me to judge their show in Borsborn on 3 rd May .This was an occasion I was really looking forward to and the venue was perfect for a dog show .The ring was of a good size and the tent set up with a display of wonderful rosettes and prizes. My secretary Antje and ring steward Nicole were very efficient and enabled me to get through the large entry in good time . Thank you to you both .
I enjoyed the judging and was impressed with the quality. Heads were particularly good , none overdone , and I was especially impressed with the lovely reach of necks flowing into well placed shoulders.
It is impossible to make a report on all the winners but I feel the B.O.B deserves a mention .
Black Sugar Luis ………an outstanding black dog , teeming with quality and presented in excellent condition , his coat absolutely gleaming . He excels in his super construction and breed type , clean in outline , plenty of substance throughout . This dog has enormous ring presence and flowed round the ring with great style when moving .He was completely at one with his handler and never put a foot wrong .
The Best Bitch ……A Positive Mystery Be My Adele ……beautiful yellow with lovely head and kind expression ,excellent angulation front and rear, great depth of body with powerful hindquarters enabling her to move with drive . I loved her overall type and super quality and she too was presented to perfection .
Finally Nicole Visel and her team did a brilliant job in organising the show and making it such a success …..I cannot let it pass without mentioning the caterers ……the lunch was delicious !
I thoroughly enjoyed the appointment and appreciated the hospitality I received . I wish the club continued success.
