Judges Critiques



This first place girl was my close pick for BISS
I walked to the center of the ring to view the lineup, and there she was at the head of the line. She looked even better close up. I smiled thinking I wish she was mine. She was in outstanding coat and condition. Beautiful balance, short coupled, great topline and correct bone. Strong rear with great hocks, and beautiful neck that set perfectly on her shoulders. True feminine expression, and correct eye color. Handler and dog did a fine job. Well done.
