Judge- Barbara W. Lopez
  4 points Dogs     4 points Bitches

It was an honor for me to judge this show which is part of the 3-day
Midwest Triangle.  My thanks go to the members of the Wisconsin Club for entrusting their entry to me and especially to Andy and Gene Tenges (my ring steward, chauffeurs and fun-hosts) and Paulette Gallatin, Super Show Secretary.   

 Before I begin the individual critiques, I would like to say that
overall the dogs shown under me were good to excellent specimens.  Many will finish their Championship titles.  I had full and correct dentition with not one missing tooth!  There were no ‘dead’ tails or tails that were carried incorrectly.  I had a few soft ears and a few dogs with poor feet.  Temperament was generally good and the few that displayed slight nervousness could be attributed to the fact that they were indoors and the acoustics were perhaps the cause. However, I had to evaluate them equally and fault those who showed such nervousness.Gaiting was overall very good and most dogs showed correct reach and  follow-through with close-to-the-ground movement.  Often the differences between first and fourth were minor.  Coming and going is always hard to evaluate indoors and some that were faulted may be different outdoors onbetter surfacing.  If I had been judging under the proposed revised Standard, my placings would not have been different.

6-9 Puppy Dogs
1st Aramist’s Nilz of Bodega.  By Covy Tucker Hill’s Fly’n Jib Bodega
and Ch. Bodega Sunami Covy Tucker Hill.  A dark black and rich tan with excellent bone, feet, head and expression with dark eyes, good ears, short hocks and excellent overall type.  An exuberant, outreaching, fluid mover that at times caused him to lift a little in the front andwriggle a little in the rear.  A really good one.

Mountain Laurel.  A very nice black and tan puppy with good movement butwith (at this age) a slightly weak ear and not as good feet as the firstplace puppy.

exceptionally fluid, extending and easy  mover.  Clean coming and
going.  Good masculine head, ears and expression.  Not as hard and dry

Could have better feet.

2nd Windwood’s Annie.  By Ch Winsomes Goer v Saxony and Ch Windwoods Zircon.  Very nice puppy bitch that could have won the class had she been a little more consistant in gaiting.  Very outreaching movement.  I suspect she is better going away than she showed me, due to her pullingtoo hard.  Could have better feet.

3rd Trotwood’s Margarita Khali-BG.  By Ch Bredwel Jakester of Joelle and Bee Gees Khali.  A sable bitch of very nice type and proportion.  Good bone.  A sound, solid mover.

12-18 Month Bitch - Reserve Winners Bitch

1st Winsome’s Murphie Bearown.  By Ch Stoneways Uecker and Winsome’s Tortellini v Cypress.  What a nice bitch!  I believe her dam is the sister to the 1999 U.S. Grand Victrix.  A black and light gold bitch.

hindquarter; good solid back.  Shown in beautiful condition.

2nd Tazzmans Northern Star.  By Ch Kenlyns Illuminator of Fran-Jo and Chilmarks Woodside CheatNHeart.  Nice bitch.  Good mover.  Not as feminine in head as the 1st place bitch.

3rd Galloways Mariah v Caralon QED.  By Ch Caralon QED Sword v Lebarlandand Springrocks Drucilla.  A slightly tall bitch at this stage.  One ear tips back slightly which mars her otherwise very pleasing head and expression.  At times she was a little over-exuberant and pulling too hard which ruined her movement.

4th Lebarlands Filet Mignon.  By JaDons Mike Tyson and Lebarlands
Hoot-N-Nanny.  This bitch was not in control enough for me to really see her gaiting.  Needs more training or perhaps needs to be shown outside.

Slightly uneasy.

American Bred Bitch - Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, Best of Opposite

Colebrooks D’Esprit D’Excalier.  A very nice bitch overall with perhaps
not quite the front extension of the first place bitch.

bitch of good overall soundness and quality.

Open Bitches

1st Stonekrofts Spitfire.  By Ch Bravo von Bliebtreu and Stonekrofts
Obsession.  What is so nice about this bitch is that she is so overall
correct.  She is a black and light tan, very feminine bitch; squeaky
clean coming and going; beautiful head and expression; correct length
and angle of croup; solid back.  She does not have the outreaching gait
of the Winners and Reserve Winner’s Bitches, but I believe she will be a Champion.  

2nd Mardon’s Louise. A lovely bitch with a very smooth, outreaching
gait; good solid back; ears could be more firm; a little wide going away

3rd Utopia’s Persuasion.  By Ch Ken Delaines Taylor made and Utopias

Kylie.  A rather large bitch; good movement.

Best of Breed

Breauhausen’s Titanic.  By Trafalgars Nightquest Kismet and Ro-Ans
Scarlet Lace. I understand this dog finished his Championship on Friday
night under Joan Fox.  A large black and tan masculine male with very
outreaching movement and good follow-through.  He has a very smooth,
coordinated gait and excellent temperament.  A deserving Champion.
