Nidderdale Show Feature

Best In Show was Susan Butterfield’s Shar Pei
Forgevalley Pause And Pose For Chequerpei, seen here with (l-r) Lorraine Webb
(AVNSC Utility judge), Show Manager Stewart Irving and BIS judge Sheila Sadler

Phew! What a show, always a good one but better still this year, great sponsors. Beautiful sunny weather. Gorgeous location in Beverley Park at Pateley Bridge. Lovely sized well mown rings. Crowds all day long, lots of exhibitors enjoying the day out at this, their favourite show. Our Dogs chose this show as one of its “Featured Events” and I can see why! Huge entry of almost a thousand from 176 classes. Quality dogs throughout, who are the people that continually expound that dogs at Open shows are not of sufficient quality? Rubbish!

Visit this show and have your mind changed. Superb band of hard working Stewards; Judges that came to enjoy themselves, not just to fulfil an appointment. It is said Open Shows are in decline - those that are should come and take note.

Firstly my sincere apologies to all exhibitors for the shortness of my report, due to a very quick and unexpected close bereavement after returning from Nidderdale. I deemed it a great honour to be asked to judge Best in Show as such a wonderful and idyllic venue, and for such a super entry including the Steers who thought they would also like my opinion. The very hardworking officers and committee made sure that everything ran very efficiently and greatly added to the pleasure for me. Thank you. My BIS. was the Shar-Pei. Superb example of the breed in all departments. Head that fits. the standard to perfection. Good solid body in hard muscular condition. Moved with purpose and control, at one with the handler. Could not deny this one Best in Show. A privilege to judge. Not surprised to hear his Third BIS in the last month. Res Best in Show was the Pug, who even after a long day still pushed to the limit. A super dog, should do much winning. Best Puppy in Show was the Belgium Shepherd.

Although very much a baby has much going for it. Super head and perfection in ear. Good neck and shoulder into good tight body. Handled so well for its owner. Will watch this one’s progress. Res Best in Show. was the Miniature Schnauzer. Smart little dog in good coat and condition. Alert expressive attitude. Sound in movement both forward and aft. Handled well. It was gratifying to see so many staying for BIS and to have the applause for the winners.

Thank you to all. C.K.C.S. BOB was Richardson’s, Rosemonde Voyager at Krigleholme. Showy dog. Good typy head, good body. Nice dentition. Moved well with style. BP was Leach’s, Miletree Kentucky Mystery at Ouzlewell. Nice baby with much promise. Good body in good muscular condition. Coat coming nicely. Could have a bright future. PAPILLON BOB was Verity’s, Sunshoo Jeremy Fisher. Quality head, well coated and set ears. Good neck and shoulders. Good tail set and moved soundly. BP. was Mosshevid’s, Talk of the Town at Delphlands. Nice baby, good head, nice expression. Very alert. Good neck and shoulders.

Showed well.
POMERANIAN BOB and BP and B/AV TOY. Thornton’s, Valder’s, Midget Gem. Wolf sable in full coat. Beautiful head with small neat ears, good alert expression. Best of fronts, well boned. Moved and showed like a veteran. CHIHUAHUA LONG COAT was Entwistle’s, Dorenty Daband Dennis. Sure the name fits. Personality plus. Good firm body. Lovely head, good shaped tail. Moved as all from this kennel with showmanship. CHIHUAHUA SMOOTH COAT was Entwistle’s, Ch. Nokemded Norman. A most worthy Champion as always from this kennel. Correct head fine well laid shoulder. Super fit body, good tail. Moved as always with good sound movement both fore and aft. Pushed hard all day for top honours. A privilege to go over. AV TOY was Gullen’s, Barnfall Glam and Glitz. Well turned out Pug who had everything for me on the day. Lovely head, beautiful ears, balanced from head to toe.

Expression and personality demanded attention. Correct body, good tail. Right Pug movement front and back. One I would love to own. Judged fairly, must have a bright future. Was delighted to award her BAV TOY and RBIS. V STAKES was Gullen’s, Hutzpah Honeysuckle. Was a little disappointed in the dentition cleanness of many of the otherwise super veterans. A little time taken with the teeth now saves a lot of trouble later in life, and adds to the well kept condition of the dog. My Best Veteran I find is mother to my Res Best in Show. A quality bitch of 8 years. Not surprised of the quality she produced. Good head, nicely placed shoulders. Still with good front and rear end. Good tail. Moved well and well bodied. AV BRACE. The most beautiful Brace class I have seen for a long time. I wish I could have placed them all first, and I really had to split hairs. 1. Two litter brothers, Pyrenean Mountain Dogs, that had it together. Looking and moving as if they joined at the hip with the handler. Poetry in motion.
