Yorkshire Collie Club, 3rd September 2017. Dog Judge Dermot Timmins (Kynan)


My thanks to Yorkshire Collie Club for inviting me to act as replacement judge when Grenville Francis unfortunately took ill. It was an excellently run club show with a friendly relaxed atmosphere. I’d like to sincerely thank the exhibitors for taking their dogs under me – a replacement judge – and for their pleasant, sportsmanlike acceptance of my choices. Presentation of dogs was excellent and it was a real pleasure to judge this show.

Puppy Dog
1st        S Humphrey. Shasam Sign of The Times.  11 month old sable dog with lovely outline. His good reach of neck, good length of body and long sweeping tail presented a pleasing image. Good head type, eye colour, shape, and placement good. Would prefer ears up a little more. Moved well – a quality puppy and one to watch for in the future. Best Puppy Dog.
2nd        B Cooney. Jopium Danny Boy at Lingwell.  11 month old sable with good make and shape, good angulation front and rear. Correct set and length of tail. Head balanced, shape, colour and placement of eye correct. Used ears well. Would prefer a little more length of body but he moved well keeping his tail down. Very promising youngster.

Good reach of neck and length of body, would like a little more length of tail. Front and rear angulation good. Length, depth and spring of rib good. Colour and shape of eye excellent. His ears were a little heavy but he moved and showed well.
