All card winners had Good head,neat ears,correct bite,straight front with good bone,good rib,good back end, moved well

3rd Butlers Ramblestaff Cos I Can
I would like to thank the committee officers of the SCSBTS for inviting me to
judge bitches at your Champ show.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day, with great hospitality and a well organised show.
There was great atmosphere and lots of cheering going on.
I would also like to thank all the exhibitors for bringing along their bitches for my assessment and taking my decision in a sporting manner, and to my two expert stewards, Jamie Mace and Gina Jones, who did a great job in looking after me in the ring,
It was good to see quality bitches, but some went with no placings as I only had five prize cards,
I can only recall one level bite on the day so we are going in the right direction with the mouths, high tail carriage seems to be getting better than in 2011 when I judge bitches last, but overall, I was very happy with all my decisions on the day.
