Mrs P Beard Smith
Thankyou to Veldes and Julia and the rest of the team for inviting
me to judge at their first show. My thanks also to Val Kilby who pointed
me in the direction of the hotel, to Di Brown who gave me a lift to
the show hall and to Julia's husband Kevin who dropped me off at the

and was very good company. Thankyou Katy perhaps we can do it again

ears. Well opened blue eyes round in shape. He has a broad nose which
is quite long leading to a narrow muzzle and he lacks fullness in his
cheeks. Level bite weak chin. Large frame of good bone and underlying
muscle but needs to fill out more for balance. Standing a bit tall today
on strong limbs and large round feet. Tail balances with body. His coat
was lovely being short dense and crisp. Cool lilac points which are

which is totally free of shading. This boy needs more time to mature

was generally out of balance today.
