Judge's Critiques

Firstly, many apologies for being a bit late posting these reports. Due to an operation on my eye. Thank you to the show society for inviting me to judge this wonderful breed, which are very close to my heart. What a fantastic entry, both in numbers and quality, so another thank you to so many exhibitors for entering their super dogs, I was truly spoilt for choice, and really enjoyed my day. Thank you also to my lovely stewards.

SBD (1/0)
1st Croft, Dreamwolves Oh my Oh my, standing alone, but I had no hesitation in awarding him 1st. Slightly difficult to go over, but I understand he has had a bit of a tough time. I do not doubt he will gather his confidence. Head broad and strong with width between ears, muzzle deep and broad, bite good. Dark well shaped eyes and medium sized ears. Strong neck and medium slope to shoulders. Forelegs straight and good feet. Back straight and gently sloping to hind quarters. Slight difficulty with assessing rear, but as he gathers confidence this should improve. Good tail set and held well in a waving plume on the move. Really good rhythmic movement. Later ” Best S. Beginner.”

MPD (4/0)
1. Ellis-Payne, Sno Quest’s Gonna Fly Now To Chayo (naf, taf), what a lovely pup, excellently boned already. A real sweetie. Developing nicely, obviously much maturing to do. Skull reasonably developed already, muzzle has yet to broaden and deepen. Super dark well set and shaped eyes. Well angulated even at this age, giving a super outline. Coat coming through well. Hind assembly strong and true. Tail set good, and carried well. Super movement.
2. Loades, Snowolf Black powder Charge, loved him, and could have won today, but was rather shy, probably due to the high winds and tent banging! Excellent make and shape, Another real baby. Much development to come, but showing all the attributes of a very promising pup. Overall balance excellent, and good bone for one so young.

PD (2/0)
1st. Singh, Sledog Bebop Prez, another super pup, lots of maturing to do, as only 10 months. Nice head, with broad skull, muzzle yet to deepen. Ears well set and triangular, already well furred. Eyes dark , well set and of good size. Neck strong and shoulders well set. Front assembly good, with correct feet. Ribcage broad and deep, back strong and straight, with slight slope to rear, croup correct and pelvis correctly angled. Hind legs well boned and broad with slight bend to stifle, hocks low set and firm. Tail carried well. Moved well.
2nd. Bruns, Sledog Bebop Dizzy at Kirakoo, brother to first, similar attributes to first, makings of a nice dog. Coat coming through well already, and in lovely condition. Not a lot to choose between these brothers, just preferred tail set and carriage on 1st today. Gorgeous nature.

JD (2/0)
1st, Loades, Whitewalker’s Winter Snowolf, super dog, clothes left at home, but makings of a Champion. Most super head, skull spot on and muzzle still needing to deepen. Correct ear shape and set, and lovely dark well set and shaped eyes. Good bone throughout, with well balanced front and rear assembly. Strong arched neck into well laid shoulders, correct upper arm and strong parallel front with firm pasterns. Feet large and well arched toes. Back strong straight and taut loin. Deep chest, and generally good proportions. Slight slope to rear, which is angulated correctly. Broad and already powerful thighs, with slight bend to stifle. Well carried tail. When he got into his stride showed good powerful drive.
2nd. Dziergas & Ashworth, James Bond Illa Kuvianartok at Nunataq (imp Poland), another nice one. Loved his head. Really well balanced and proudly held. Good earset and shape correct, with good width between. Strong skull of correct shape and deep broad muzzle. Well boned throughout. Strong arched neck with reasonable shoulder placement. Straight front with almost vertical pasterns and correct feet. Chest deep and back strong and straight and then slightly sloping to rear. Rear matched front assembly well. He did not show himself off to advantage today , which was a shame, as he is promising.

YD. (3/0)
1st Horsman-Phoenix, Horsman, Snow Legend Zenith of Fame Nordic winds (imp Russia), 22 months, the most lovely overall make and shape. I think, he had an alternative handler which unsettled him a bit, together with the strong winds. Head type super, muzzle still to deepen. Really well angulated throughout, making him look so well balanced. Strongly arched neck with ex shoulders, upper arm correct and correct parallel front. Back strong and straight with good depth to chest. Taut loin and back slightly sloping to rear. Croup ok, tail may be set on little high as would prefer slightly more of waving plume. Did not do himself justice on the moved as wanted to play. Lovely boy with super nature.
2. Druce, Charlotte Kaskae of a View (ai), another exhibit I really liked, was unlucky to come up against winner. Ex head type, well balanced with great expression. Eyes could be darker and are quite large . Ears well set and slightly forward facing when he assessed me !! Strong arched neck, good shoulders and correct front. Strong short almost vertical pasterns. Good height to length ratio and hind assembly matches front. Good large strong feet with tightly arched toes. Tail held and carried well. Very good movement.

PGD. (3/1)
1st. Innes, Icycool Hudson Bay, (Ai), Very Naughty, but Oh So Nice!! What a character…. Super make and shape. Only 2 years, and makings of super dog. Really well balanced throughout. Ex head type, broad skull gradually narrowing to eyes with slight furrow. Flattened cheeks and wide deep muzzle, bite level. High to length ratio spot on. Lovely strong slightly arched neck, and good shoulders. Correct strong bone throughout. Front and rear assembly well balanced. Lovely broad thighs with slight bend to stifle. Well let down hocks. Good tail set and carriage. Movement really good with powerful drive.
2. Martin, Wen Magick Happens at Dreamwolves, nice type lad, with a good head. Really masculine and well proportioned. Dark good sized eyes, correctly set. Good angulation throughout, but front appearing rather wide today, but we’ll boned. Back strong and straight and slightly sloped to rear. Tail carried well, nice waving plume. Moved quite well.

LD. (9/1)
1st. Horsman-Phoenix & Horsman, Nordicwinds Grtest Showman JW, absolutely super ! Have judged him before and he has matured beautifully. Really well balanced dog of excellent breed type. Broad skull with width between well spaced ears of a triangular shape, slight furrow between well set eyes, for perfection would prefer slightly larger eyes, but perfectly acceptable. Muzzle still to deepen a little more. Strong slightly arched neck to perfectly angulated front. Well boned legs and strong short pasterns. Ex feet. Back strong with deep chest, taut short loin and good croup. Really well muscled , in hard condition. Wide strong thighs and hocks well let down. Good tail carriage and set. Good coat with dense undercoat and harsh topcoat. Looked a picture. Really good movement with that strong thrust from behind and rhythmic gait. Loved him. RCC
2nd. Wolfe Sutarka Fire Storm, a really nice dog of good type but threw it away by moving wide on rear today. Very well proportioned and good head type. Broad skull and well set ears, together with well set and shaped eyes gave a pleasing picture. Correct arch to neck, and shoulder and upper arm spot on. Back straight but not much slope to rear, making him appear a bit high in rear. Reasonable slope to stifle, and tail really well carried and set, showing lovely waving plume.

1st. Page, Ch. Snow Legend Believe In You Cedarcreek, (imp Russia)
Absolutely super! Loved everything about him. Not 5 years old yet, looking the perfect picture. Classic text book example of a super Malamute. Loved his head, so proud and strong, but not overdone. Classic angulation throughout which is so balanced front and rear. Super coat of great double texture. Plus movement to die for, great thrust from hind legs propelling him forward into a strong rhythmic typical gait. Could not fault him. Dog CC.
2nd. Palasinka, Magdalena Anson Del Biagio, Good head shape, well set ears , eyes well set but would prefer darker colour. Body shape appeared slightly unbalanced in angles, with front not aligning with rear, showing more angulation at front than rear. Good bone throughout. Really good feet with tight arched toes. Well carried tail, with waving plume. Moving a little erratically today.

VD. (5/0)
1st. Nevinson, Ch. Chayo Golden Touch, what a super boy, looking in his prime. Now in his 9th year, looking better than ever. Everything so in proportion. Super head, of perfect type, can’t fault it. Strong arched neck , and good front assembly. Correct almost vertical pasterns, and large feet with tight toes. Back really strong and straight, and deep wide chest. Back slightly sloping to rear. Rear assembly matching front, with well boned and muscled thighs. Hocks low set. Excellent tail carriage, with waving plume. Coat double and thick. His movement is superb, one of the best.
2nd. Smith, Ch. Snowshoes King’s Legacy . Sh.CM.ShCEx, another really super dog. , Very similar in structure to first, with really super head. Most perfect eyes. Angulated well throughout, and another top draw dog. Did not move quite as well as first today, but saying that, he is top class.

1st. Forsey, Muzoku Charmed One, what a lovely pup, makings of a really good one here.! Really confident, for one so young. Sweet head with lovely dark expressive eyes of good shape. Ears triangular and set well apart. Skull developing well and muzzle also. Good bite. Already well angulated in body for age and very balanced. Coat thick already for such a youngster. Really good tail carriage and set. When she settled showed super movement.
2nd, Loades, Snowolf Blackpowder Sizzle, another real baby, still quite fine at present, just needs time. As she matures and fills out she will do well, I am sure. Gorgeous dark eyes, of perfect set and shape. Already showing good angulation fore and aft, which showed in her lovely movement where she really came into her own.

1st, Robb, Icewolf Fendi L’Aquarossa, super young lady, oozing quality. Everything to like about her. Such a pretty well shaped headpiece. Well proportioned skull to muzzle, still retaining femininity. Beautiful dark well shaped eyes, and good triangular ears. Great neck, and shoulder set perfectly. Well angulated throughout. Front assembly matching rear. Good tail set, with waving plume when powering round the ring. Moved perfectly for one so young. A great future here I think! Loved her. Best Puppy.
2nd. Forsey, Muzoku Charmed One.
