I was delighted to be invited to judge Mini Wires, and would like to thank the committee, stewards and everyone who entered under me for making it a fantastic day. It was an absolute pleasure being able to judge my own breed, and although Iíve been in mini wires for 25 years I havenít been able to attend many shows recently so many of the exhibits were new to me. The weather had us moving rings a couple of times, although thats one thing that can never be predicted. Overall I was happy with the standard of dogs and pleased to see the vast majority kept in good shape and hygiene. There were a few that were a little too heavy and some out of coat, and a couple with more nervous temperaments. But I was overall lucky to have some very nice dogs to go over and place, with many fine attributes. Veteran Dog (3,2) 1st: FEETHAM Kimbleholme Jackpot. A good sized dog, well balanced and compact. Correctly proportioned head, well angulated front with tight shoulders and ample width throughout. Good spring and length of rib, short loin, good rear angulation. A little unsettled on the move due to the grass, but displayed good rear drive. BV Puppy Dog (2) 1st: FULTON Bothlyn Trail Blaze. A promising pup. Masculine head with almond eyes. Nicely filled out at the front with good angulation and well placed shoulders. Harsh coat, correct ribbing, excellent rear angulation with a good turn of stifle. Once he got going he moved with drive and was very sound coming and going. Worthy to win BP 2nd: DANCE Emem Solar Power. Lengthy neck. Ok front angulation, good length and spring of rib and rear angulation. Moved round the ring with purpose and a correct topline that was maintained throughout. Overall a sound dog with a fantastic coat, just preferred the front on 1. Junior Dog (2) 1st: KIRKWOOD Beetlejuice Vitoraz at Helydon (Imp Cze). A masculine red dog with correct head proportions and dark almond eyes. Well placed shoulders and tight elbows, correct ribbing thats well developed for his age, good rear angulation and turn of stifle. Well balanced at both front and back, moved ok with a decent stride. 2nd: CORNER Carcorn Fabulous Frank. Correct proportions from muzzle to skull, dark almond eyes with a good ear set and shape. Lengthy neck that flowed well into the withers, ok front and rear angulation. A little softer of coat, but moved well with purpose. Limit Dog (1) 1st: FEETHAM Kimbleholme Jenga. A nice masculine boy with a good size and weight. Dark almond eyes, good front angulation with well laid back shoulders.
