IPSWICH KENNEL CLUB

8th JUNE 2008 CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW  

JUDGE Mrs B Smith - COSSACKS (UK) 

Thank you to everyone their kindness and courtesy and for the overwhelming generosity that I received from everyone. Thank you also for the unforgettable Australian experience. I've had such a great time and I hope that some of you, at least, will keep in touch in the future.

            

Thank you to Lesley and her friends for entertaining me on the Westie Fun Day whilst Clare was judging; to John Ross whose company I so much enjoyed and who has such an astonishing depth of knowledge and to his family for making us both so welcome. Thanks to Kelly Fu who taught me things I didn't know about dentition and provided a marvelous sea-food picnic to boot. A special thanks to Julana for her thoughtfulness and her astonishing organisational skills, and for the time and effort she gave most generously. My gratitude and thanks to my excellent steward Anne Morrow and to Hayley Bartley who stepped into the breach at the last moment.

            

Most of all I'd like to thank all those people who went home card less; for their sportsmanship in defeat and for their good manners and without whom there would be no show.

What a very quality bitch. I really liked her ring presence. Seen from any angle, standing it was hard to fault her. Beautifully balanced  with lovely clean lines. Standing four square she looked hard to knock off her feet. Strong head of correct proportions with keen expression, dark eye, nicely placed rose ears. She moved a little closer behind going away than the dog, which just cost her BOB.
