CLASS RESULTS & CRITIQUES
Many thanks to the NNC for the honour of judging this show and also to all the exhibitors for allowing me the opportunity of making an opinion of their dogs, I
considered it a great privilege.
All Newfoundlands presented were sound with no major faults and were in my mind able to undertake a day’s work either swimming or draught work. I was very impressed with the dogs and pleased with the breed in general. The most difficult class of the day for me was veteran bitch as the quality of the entries was outstanding.
Minor Puppy Dog (4,0)
1st - Mr & Mrs G Canning - Zentaur To Those Who Wait: This boy was the largest of my first three but also the eldest. Good well proportioned body with broad front. Correct teeth and nice eyes. He moved well with confidence, a very promising youngster.
2nd - Mr G & Mrs D Burns - Kyrimara Mystic Wave: White and black boy of decent size and well presented. Correct teeth but eyes a bit loose but will hopefully tighten up a little as he matures. Slightly down on his pasterns today but moved well and looked happy in the ring.
3rd - Mr A G & Mrs K J Farrar - Hanningfield Metallica at Darkpeak: Good looking boy at just six months. Lovely expression, good teeth and nice dark eyes set well apart. Moved well and again looked happy in the ring.
Res - Ms J Irving & Mr P Luxton - Hanningfield Lemmy
Puppy Dog (3,1)
1st - Mrs E M Dickson - Zentaur Der Kapitan Wispered Omen: Large well proportioned boy presented in excellent condition. Correct scissor bite, dark eyes and a solid head but not over done. Strong neck of good length leading to a solid level back. Good angulation with an abundance of bone and good muscle used well on the move. Definitely one to keep an eye on in the future.
2nd - Mr R Burton - Vodahond Against All Odds: Again a solid good sized dog, very similar to number one with very little to split the two. I would have been happy to take either boy home. Well developed for his age, good teeth and nice dark eye giving a gentle expression. Strong head with short muzzle, body developing nicely with well covered ribs, short in loin and with a good turn of stifle. Moved with vigour.
