"I was delighted to be asked to judge the NESSS the weather was dry and sunny which allowed everyone to enjoy the beautiful surroundings where the show is held. I was fortunate to have both quantity and quality in my entry and thank the exhibitors for giving me the pleasure of judging their dogs. Thank you to the committee for making me so welcome and to my two very efficient stewards which all contributed to a most enjoyable day."

Minor Puppy Dog (3)

1st Smiths’ Melverly Missionaire
8 month old L/W puppy liked his head with good depth of muzzle and correct eye shape, masculine enough for his age, had a good reach of neck, well balanced body, correct tail set, straight front, up on his toes with nice tight feet good rear angulation moved steadily. BPIS
2nd Savells’ Trimere Tom Cruise with Petranella
Similar comments to my winner of this class apply but just preferred the head and maturity of 1 (this puppy was 2 months younger) and has time on his side. A little longer cast at this stage, moved ok
3rd Holts’ Bethryn Call My Bluff
