Driffield Agricultural Society

Wetherby Racecourse, 3rd October 2015. Judge: Miss Meriel France (Torbrae)


"Firstly many thanks to Driffield Canine Society Officers and Committee for inviting me to judge and secondly a big thank you to my efficient and professional steward, Liz who was invaluable.
"The ground was not its best first thing, being covered in early morning dew, and consequently some of the movement in the earlier classes suffered. The young bitch classes were inspiring, which is encouraging as they are our custodians of the breed."

Smaller dog than 1, with a good length and top line, well-proportioned head and dark eye. Adult coat needs to come through and he did not like the ground under his feet today.

Open Bitch 1st: Denham's Dentgate Hollyberries
An unpretentious bitch with just everything going for her. Oozes femininity whilst maintaining all the qualities needed to work. Lovely balance and shape. Strong beautifully proportioned head with dark "smiling" eyes, framed with a soft silvery top knot. Moved with complete ease, she could have kept her perfect rhythmic pace up all day. BCC & BOB.
