Overall Comments:

"Let me begin by thanking you for inviting me to judge your dogs. It was an honor and privilege. I enjoyed the assignment greatly and was pleased with the overall quality of the dogs.

The hospitality of the club was wonderful, in fact some of the best I have ever experienced. The site was excellent for a moving breed, and the sportsmanship of the exhibitors was commendable.

The overall quality of the entry was good. I only had one slightly overshot bite and very few missing teeth. Almost all the dogs were in good condition. I did find that many of the dogs had weak/straight fronts. When I examined the dogs and put my hands on their fronts, I found that they were Rcut-up in front,S with little in the way of a fore chest. I believe anyone examining this entry would have encountered the same thing. In addition, many of the dogs, instead of moving in one straight line moved in parallel lines with the front on one line and the rear on another. These dogs, when viewed from the side, often over-reached. I saw a wide divergence in head types and would have liked to have seen more uniformity in heads. Several of the dogs were also long in body, and the Silken standard calls for a square dog.

My choice for BOB impressed me with his smooth, effortless, ground-covering movement. He was in fine condition with lovely, flat muscles, and proper proportions. My BOS was also a lovely moving, well conditioned, feminine, example of the breed. My WD was a well put-together, nicely balanced, solid moving animal with a lovely outline. My RWD moved extremely well, and was very typey; however, his outline was not as good. My WB and BOW selection was from the Bred-By class. She was beautifully proportioned, and an excellent moving animal. She had an effortless movement that was both efficient and graceful. My RWB was from the Open class. She was also a beautiful moving bitch, but not quite as balanced as my WB.

Again, I want to thank all of you for the opportunity to judge such a large, lovely entry. I will fondly remember this assignment for many years to come. " - Gwen Post
