1 SOUTH WEST DOBERMANN CLUB Breed Championship Show Saturday 26 th November, 2016 My very grateful thanks to the committee of the South West Dobermann Club for their kind invitation to judge bitches at their 30 th Championship Show. The hospitality couldn t have been better, secretary Yvonne Bevans should be well proud of procedures. Grateful thanks also to Martin Thompson and Jane Lewis for their very efficient stewarding. Lovely entry of 52 top quality bitches (10 absent), notably in Limit and Open. Presentation throughout was excellent, temperament exemplary, only heard one grumble, and that wasn t aggressive. I also really appreciated the good sportsmanship, it boosts your confidence when you hear appreciation after every class. It was satisfying to be told afterwards that my Veteran winner, who went BVIS, was the mother of the RCC & RBIS bitch who in turn was the dam of my Best Puppy, litter sister to the BPIS.

L (11,1) This was a pleasing class to judge but differing types. However, quality throughout. 1 Wilkes Gylemuir Midnight Magic for Lynfryds, have judged this four year old before when awarding her BB at a club show, so aware she has 2CCs and a string of RCCs. Would have loved to have made her up but in depth quality in Open was outstanding. Turned out in fabulous condition, stands her ground, most pleasing head, clean, balanced, flat skull, well set ears, good stop, strong muzzle, lovely dark eye, intelligent feminine expression, strong neck into very good shoulder, good depth of chest, spring of rib, strong forelegs, pasterns and feet, very well built at rear, excellent thigh muscles, strong in hock, such an easy mover.

Pleasing head, clean and balanced, nicely coloured eye and expression, very inquisitive, body in very hardy condition, very well off for bone and muscle, sound mover, very animated. Pleasing temperament. O (10,3) Now to the business end of affairs. Outstanding quality, spoilt for choice, you name it, any old cliché will do. But with seven champions entered, what would you think? I can honestly say it gave me a real thrill to judge this class. 1 Ingrams Ch,Ir Ch Jojavik Poison Ivy JW ShCM, homebred from champion parents, what you see is what you get. Doesn t really need a handler, does it all herself, but handled to perfection nevertheless. As I said to the owners afterwards, the one thing you can t breed for is ring presence and charisma. That s Mother Nature s gift. This girl has it in abundance. Really bristling with condition, she s good and knows it! Such a lovely clean head to handle, balanced, flat skull, well set ears, good strong muzzle, good stop, most gorgeous dark
5 feminine eye and expression, a real siren. In such outstanding form, born showgirl, really excellent front and hindquarters, strong legs, pasterns and feet, good strong rear, excellent first and second thigh muscle enabling such easy, unperturbed movement. Dictatorial in attitude, knows the way round with such impressive drive and good reach in front. Still had her work cut out to win this class but never let handler down. Yes, all dogs have faults, this girl less than most. Well pleased to award her the CC, her 26 th I believe, two short of the record. At three and a bit years, no problem. At the in-show awards, referee Clive Evans called her forward for BIS. Well pleased, congratulations. 2 Well. If Ivy has class, so does Mycroft s Ch Supeta s Spells Trouble JW ShCM, unlucky to meet Ivy, ran her to the wire. Outstanding bitch whose movement I couldn t fault, but then, having gone over her, could do no more than demonstrate how a well built, fit girl can go. A true worker. Really super quality head, so balanced and clean, flat skull, excellent ear carriage, loved her beautiful dark eye and ultra feminine expression. Again, like 1, hard to fault, hands just glide over body finding everything where it should be, so sound, so alert, so classy. Delighted to award her the RCC and see her selected for RBIS. Well done. Daughter of BV, mother of BPs. How bad is that? 3 Ingrams Ch Jojavik Molly Mobster JW ShCM, another excellent bitch of outstanding quality, total femininity, gorgeous head, eye and expression, presented in tip-top condition, showed her socks off, looked grand standing, impressive on the move, sound, delightful temperament. Completed a trio of lovely bitches. Geoff Duffield (judge)
