Thank you for inviting me to Judge the Keeshonds. Congratulations to the SCCA for a well-designed show ground plan. I would also take this opportunity to give credit to all the keeshond exhibitors for their presentation within various classes after a long absents 13 months away from the dog show hobby. Appreciation to my 2 stewards, sadly did not have time to note their names, but you know who you are. Thank you for the splendid running of the show ring number 10. I did find improvement since l last judge quite impressive for our breed. The height for the leg and reach for the arch neck, good bone, good condition for the coats. Generally, over all I had a super choice on the day.

Her overall general appearance so well in tune and impressive proportion balance just perfect expected at her young age, super bone, her body frame, spring of rib and mussel toning developing nicely. Her coat nice condition, overall rich black, plus grey. off white cream colouring all distinctive seen throughout forming were markings need to be clearly noted, high set tail for her developing frame. On movement covered all the ground as required with a runner standing by. The presentation impressive, beautiful finish she showed with great confidence and has quality. I can see she has a bright future ahead, one to watch.
Mrs C Bell. ALLFORUS ENTERNAL FLAME. This puppy only 6 months old. What a delight to see too. She was not feminine at this stage but what magnificent over all complete balance appearance really took my breath away. Beautiful head very fox like rich black muzzle, dark eye, charter head colouring developing nicely. general body tone impressive, nice length of leg, well spring rib, quite delightful to see even so young, she sure has a super outstand appearance for the leg, arch neck, to go with her developing well in potation of the body frame developing. I have seen this type of Keeshond breed in the past that came from well-known breeders, sadly no longer with us. Really delightful. Her puppy coat naturally very tight and light, markings coming through in time be more distinctive. Movement, first time in the ring, very playful excited enjoying herself generally but that in time and practice easy be controlled. I think the owner was more excited showing her off today. Another puppy bitch with a bright future, one to watch indeed. Both puppies were slightly different with high quality, exciting for their futures.
