DOGS: FRED JONES (FOYLEOAK)
My sincere ‘thank you’ to the EASBTC for the opportunity to award CCs for my first time in the UK - a day I thoroughly enjoyed, the hospitality was really appreciated, the committee never stopped, thank you all, Massive thank you to all exhibitors who gave me the opportunity to assess their dogs also to the overseas visitors, I fully understand the massive journey and cost involved; last but not least thank you to my two very efficient ring stewards, Steve Page & Jo Essex, who were both on point all day. I really enjoyed the younger classes with really good quality dogs - bodes well for the future, should make for an interesting next few years to see how they all progress. I only found a few dogs with misplaced incisors and one with a very tight lower canine. I have not mentioned detention individually in the critique as I was perfectly happy with those that were placed. In my final line up I was extremely happy with the quality of dogs in front of me, a credit to you all and the breed.
Minor Puppy Dog 10 (0)
1st Rhodes & Pritchard Taraiel Reaper at Teracota
Top quality black brindle with white. Loved this young chap - for me he set the quality off for the rest of the day. Lovely shape to his head, clean muzzle, good stop, correct ear carriage, enough bone, straight front, nice feet, good angulations, gleaming coat. All round a very well balanced pup. I will keep my eye on this young lad. Best of luck in the future
2nd Hirst & Bibby Taraiel Soulja Boy Similar attributes to winner; I see from doing my report that they are litter brothers. Slightly smaller at this stage than his brother but he has everything you would want: clean headed, very good body, moved soundly. I just preferred the overall balance on the day of my winner which of course these places can change as they mature
3rd Page’s Karwillage Sweet & Dandy Black Brindle, good expression coming from a very nicely balanced head, enough bone, very good body, overall balances out well, moved OK
Puppy Dog 7 (0)
1st Johnson’s Tillcar Fire Coanda Black brindle with white. Quality powerful headed dog without being over done, good strong clean muzzle, distinct stop, neat well placed ears, well boned, correct front, good feet, good body proportions, moved freely. A pleasure to award Best Puppy Dog but he had to give way to an outstanding young bitch earning him Best Opposite Sex Puppy in Show
2nd Robinson’s Kyraloebis Brucie Bonus for Leger Black Brindle, nice head properties, nice expression, clean lip, neat ears, good bone on a broad front, good spring of rib for age, good turn of stifle, moved freely
3rd Brandon Jodanzac Red Gunner Red & White nice all-round standard dog, liked his head, good expression enough bone, nice spring of rib, good moving dog
Junior dog 10 (4)
Great class to judge
1st Wood Bultery Rollen Thunder Black brindle. Outstanding quality Stafford from his powerful well balanced head, strong muzzle, clean lip, good underjaw, nice well placed eye, distinct stop, neat ears, plenty of lift on a correct front with correct turn out of pasterns on good feet; good body depth to leg ratio, nice spring of rib and for a youngster he was in good hard condition, moved freely. It was extremely close in the final line up for top awards as he matures a bit more I am sure this dog will no doubt go on to bigger things. Best of luck with him
2nd Desmond’s Elitebulls Challenger Black brindle. Top class exhibit who I liked a lot and I would like to see reach the top. He has a first class head, strong, powerful and clean, good round eyes and neat ears all making for that typical Stafford expression, nice weight of bone to his front, good overall angulation, moved with ease
3rd Wilson’s Northstaff Notorious Black Brindle again a good quality Stafford. Good all-round dog maybe just not as mature as the two in front but what is there is quality; lovely head piece, strong muzzle, nice round eyes with neat ears, good weight of bone for his over all frame, enough rib, good angulations, moved freely
Yearling Dog 14 (2)

Very good head, strong and clean, not overdone, strong muzzle, showing no excess lip, well placed round eye, good ear set, overall a nicely balanced head that matched his body, not overdone, clean front, good weight of bone, up on his toes, stood four square, good angulations, overall a nicely balanced dog. Best of luck for the future, like to see him go on to top awards

BITCHES - JO BLACKER (CROSSGUNS)
I would like to thank the committee of EASBTC for inviting me to judge bitches at their Championship Show. This club always puts on a good show and having served on the committee I know just how hard they work to achieve this. I would also like to thank them for the hospitality shown to myself and my husband. This is the last time EASBTC will hold their Championship Show at this venue. It’s the end of an era but everything has to move on and I wish the club continued success.
I had a very good entry of 133 and I thank all the exhibitors for not only entering their bitches under me but also for the gracious way in which my decisions were accepted. Lastly thank you Caroline and Kim, my ring stewards, for keeping things running smoothly in the ring.
I had some quality exhibits to judge and with some, places could change on a different day. I seem to repeat myself when I say that fat and heavy is not strength and substance and stripping down does not represent fitness. Unfortunately there were some exhibits who were too fat and heavy or stripped down, it doesn’t look good and it is not healthy for the breed.
