AUTUMN OPEN SHOW, SATURDAY 4thNOVEMBER 2006
JUDGE MRS PAT KEEN - FERNANDES USA
I'd looked forward to returning to the UK to judge again, this clubs open show. I would like to thank the club for a lovely day, my stewards were very helpful & kept my ring organised and running smoothly from class to class. The venue was large and well lit & made for plenty of room to show off our beautiful Lhasa's. It was my pleasure once again to see and be Introduced by Mr Ken Marsh, the Clubs President, what a charmer he is
As a breeder since 1974, I take judging very seriously. I always consider that my final winners may have an impact on future generations, based on my opinion of them today. I ask myself, would I breed to or from these dogs I am awarding? On this day I would definitely say yes. My Best in Show winner especially, Timazlntl Motoro JW. The fact that I also gave firsts to some of his get, just re-afflrmed that decision. My RBIS was a beautiful Champion bitch, Rossgilde Tamegans Dream and she was the whole mature package for me.
I believe that almost all my 1 st place winners displayed the Important breed characteristics I look for & recognise In the Lhasa Apso. Correct outline for a small dog from Tibet both in height & length of body, moderate overall size and bone. Correct coat texture with a pleasing head and eye and apso expression, being able to easily distinguish these elements of breed type I found many good examples of this today.
For the most part I appreciated the high standard of grooming and presentation in my ring today. I enjoyed my judging appointment very much.
Thank you again for Inviting me and bringing me so many lovely Lhasa's.
