THE TASMANIAN GOLDEN RETRIEVER CLUB INC

BREED SPECIALTY SHOW 2/11/08

 

I felt it an honour and a privilege to be invited to judge your lovely Goldens and am delighted to say that I was not disappointed in any way. Their temperament was excellent, as it should be, but sadly this is not so ‘the world over‘ . Condition and presentation were also very good. Your hospitality was excellent and a big thanks to Ingrid for keeping the ring running smoothly.

My sincere thanks to Kaye and all the hard working team for making our first visit to your wonderful country such a memorable one, it is a trip we will never forget.

Thank you to all the exhibitors for bringing their lovely dogs for me to judge. I found in most classes very close decisions, the quality being very good, and am sure you change places many times at shows.

It must be so hard to keep quality and conformation, as well as health issues, to the fore with such a small group, I applaud you, I was very impressed, compared to some other countries. I have judged in.

I am quite sure if many of you competed in the UK, you would give us a run for our money. Hope to see some of you at Crufts!

2 worth champions.

Australian bred bitch

1. Mrs H Morrison’s Chaleur Wearing Prada

Loveliest bitch of super type, so very well balanced with lovely feminine head and expression, excels in neck and shoulder angulation, straight front with good bone and feet. Deep well ribbed body with level topline, strong well angulated quarters, moved soundly. Shown in super coat and condition. Thought she was to be my ‘star of the day’ but unfortunately I felt she lacked so much in confidence that I could not give her top honours, but she certainly deserved her class, I hope this comes with age, she is certainly quite outstanding.

2. B & S Courtney’s Ch Toriade Timsbury

Close decision between 1 and 2, with little to separate them but so different types. Well balanced quality girl with feminine head, good neck and shoulders, straight front with good bone.

Lovely girl who teems quality, most beautiful head and expression, straight front with strong bone, excellent shoulder angulation, level topline, deep well ribbed body with good balance throughout. Well angulated rear giving good movement. In lovely coat and condition.

Her tailset could be a little better but I felt her overall quality far outweighed this. Just wish she had a little more animation to take her to the top, she has so much to like about her

Close up to 1. Lovely type with feminine head and soft expression, good neck, shoulders and front with good bone and feet. Well balanced, well ribbed body with level topline, good quarters giving very sound movement .
