CRUFTS 2010

Judge Joan Scarll

A big thank you to both my stewards.

I tried to judge as always on the virtues of each dog and their performance on the day. Some classes proving much harder than others when the quality was so good. Good temperament was in abundance all day. Some dogs are carrying a little excess weight, may be due to the bad winter but fat should not be a replacement for good muscle. Too many narrow fronts found. Making for shallow chests, this needs to be checked out as Apso should be able to run up mountains in high altitudes so it needs a deeper chest capacity Heads are still a problem but better than last time I judged, some are getting quite long nosed and narrow muzzled some looking at first glance down faced, we then loose that soft sweet Apso expression which is so important. Size is much better
