The Keeshond Club held an open show where BIS was Neradmik All About The Boy for Watchkees; RBIS Winklestar Hadar; BPIS Kichighi Luke Skywalker; BVIS Am/Gr Ch Trumpet’s It’s Good To Be King.
My thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge our wonderful breed & the hard work they put in to make it an enjoyable day for all. Thank you also to the exhibitors for allowing me the pleasure of judging their dogs. With today’s exhibits in general I did not see excessive coats. As should always be the case my placings & top winners were judged on the day from dogs exhibited in front of me. I would also like to thank my two stewards.
MPD (1) 1 Hickson’s Kichighi Luke Skywalker, pleasing wedge shaped head with dark muzzle & eye, correct size & proportions. Well set tail with good plume at 9 months, fitted jacket, good colour & markings, moved well when settled. BDP, BPIS.
PD (3) 1 K Luke Skywalker; 2 Battram’s Vanstrand Hungry Heart, smaller dog, pleasing head, eye, fitted jacket but requires to clear in colour. Unsteady on the move; 3 Bowden-Roche & Bowden’s Bargeway Point Blank.
JD (1) 1 Jones’ Eastkees Silver Penny, I believe at his first show. Upstanding dog with fine bone, colour & markings still to come through. Unsteady on the move, requires to be worked on to improve.
YD (2) 1 Lindsay’s Mezanda Madog’s Storm, good wedge shaped head & skull. Would have liked a darker eye. Good size, four square when standing. Correct fitted jacket, good colour & markings. Moved a bit close at the front today; 3 E Silver Penny.
ND (1) 1 E Silver Penny.
PGD (5,1a) 1 Atkinson’s Winklestar Hadar, pleasing masculine head & eye, stood four square, well proportioned, fitted jacket of good colour, markings & tailset, moved brisk & clean going & coming.

LD (5,1) 1 Harris’ Neradmik All About The Boy for Watchkees, wedge shaped head, well proportioned with good eye. Good for size & balance, standing four square with well laid shoulders & neck, good shaped rib, strong well made rear, making clean brisk straight movement. Fitted jacket with good colour & marking. I was pleased to award him BD, BIS; 2 Andrews’ Neradmik Help The Hero at Maldine, masculine wedge shaped head with good eye. Well boned & body light in colour. I believe less coat could have improved the general picture. He moved satisfactorily when settled; 3 Newman’s Leazehond Lightning Bolt.
OD (4) 1 Atkinson’s Torrikees Who’s The Boss at Winklestar, well proportioned wedge shaped head with dark muzzle. I would have liked the eye slightly darker. Carried a good textured & coloured coat.
