I WAS honored and delighted to be given the lifetime opportunity to judge Crufts BIS 2018. The lineup of dogs was second to none – seven outstanding examples of their breeds.

The Working Group was headed by the Newfoundland bitch Newgradens Llori Nanya (JW) ShCM – the Pastoral Group the Border Collie bitch Ir Ch Nahrof Blurred Lines At Huntly – the Terrier Group was the Scottish Terrier Ch Mcvans Big Bopper At Beameups (USA) – the utility group topped by the Akita bitch Ch Stecal’s Love At First Sight (JW) The Toy Group the Papillon Multi Ch Expana’s Sea Dragon Conqueror. 

My BIS winner was the outstanding Whippet Bitch Ch Collooney Tartan Tease (JW) WW:17 – she was a delight, with as near perfect conformation, beautiful head and expression, moved with correct daisy cutting action maintaining her topline.

Reserve BIS was the elegant Pointer bitch Sh Ch Kanix Chilli again an outstanding example of the breed shown in excellent coat and condition. She is very feminine with a lovely head and expression, correct conformation and moved accurately with reach and drive.
