Full Critique for WELKS 2017
Judge : Mrs Liz Cartledge
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.
|The morning started with bright sunshine, so we were out on green grass and a huge ring. The wind got up rather making it the ultimate ’bad hair day’, but it stayed dry and I thought it was a lot better to be outside with plenty of fresh air. The dogs did not seem to mind. Some of the youngsters got extra frisky in fact. The exhibitors were struggling with their brushes, but it was the same for everybody. A delightful breed to judge with their noses in the air, confident and co-operative on the table and then that touch of arrogance on the move. I was looking for sturdy bodies, good bone for their size, broad round heads, decent coats, not too long in body and not too big.|
