Old Dominion Kennel Club. April 18 2009.

 

I would like to offer my warmest thanks to The Potomac Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club and The Old Dominion Kennel Club for the invitation also for your warm hospitality.

I also would like to extend my gratitude to All Exhibitors for giving me an opportunity to adjudicate some really good specimens of this wonderful Breed, The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and for accepting my decisions so sportingly.

An excellent entry both in numbers and quality. All my principal winners were placed according to the Breed Standard with many able to hold their own in the Show ring anywhere in the World. The Breed Standard is very clear in particular in what we as Judges of the Breed should all adhere to and that the Judges should have sufficient knowledge and fully conversant with the Breed Standard of The Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Overall the majority of the specimens on show  today conformed to the Breed Standard, but regrettably there were a number who did not, in particular with regards to the Breeds Size, Proportion, Substance these are printed, and Published by The American Kennel Club, “ Quote “Height at shoulder.14 to 16 inches. Weight; Dogs 28 to 38 pounds; bitches 24 to 34 pounds these heights being related to weights. Non-conformity with these limits is a Fault therefore and I’ll reiterate what I’ve previously mentioned The Breed Standard is very clear, unfortunately it’s the Judges interpretation that’s sometimes unclear. I’ll appreciate that overweight or obesity is a personal interpretation as I’m of the opinion that One Man’s Fat – is another’s –well- covered.

And One Man’s Lean- is another’s – Malnourished.

             Having been a frequent visitor to the USA Dog Scene in addition to having the honor on several occasions to Judge the Breed in the USA since 2000 I have watched with pleasure the Judging of the majority of Terriers at the shows I have attended and found it pleasing that in other Terriers,  the Breed Judges adhere to the Breed Standard they are adjudicating. Sadly though not in The Staffordshire Bull Terriers classes where 50llb plus Dogs consistently winning major honors. Rather disappointing that Breeders who strive to breed dogs that fit the Breed Standard unfairly  rarely get a look in, though I must admit I have occasionally and its only very occasionally that I’ve seen these fine dogs winning Top honors.

However  having gone through all of that I was delighted with my line-ups for both challenges, though particularly the bitches as I felt that overall they had more quality in depth.
