Judge CYNDI FLAUTT
  4 points Dogs     4 points Bitches

A big congrats  to the Southern Illinois German Shepherd Dog Club on their successful inaugural  show.  All the hours of hard work culminated in a quality entry that held four points on both sides. Overall, temperaments were good.  Although I was able to examine them, I did question the temperaments on one or two.  
 

WINNERS DOG- Chilmark’s Aramis

....a medium large black and tan, with good bone and pigment, presented in beautiful condition.  He had a masculine head, dark eyes, and a good earset.  His feet and pasterns were  good.  From the side, his overall proportions were correct.  His topline, underline, and croup were good.  In motion, he was fluid, reaching and driving well, with his feet close to the ground.  A willing attitude and consistent performance helped to make him a standout.

RESERVE WINNERS DOG- Hi-Cliff Laser v Woodside 

......A medium large black and tan, in good condition.  He had a very masculine head, dark eyes, and a good earset. Feet and pasterns were good.  From the side, his proportions were good, although I would like a slightly longer neck. Topline, underline, and croup were correct.  An exuberant mover, he tended to lift in the front for the first half of the class.  The longer he worked, however, the more difficult he made my decision.  
 

WINNERS BITCH, BEST OF WINNERS- Fontina of Oh-My

....A medium size, black and tan, of beautiful type, in excellent condition.  She had a feminine head, dark eyes, and a good earset.   Her  pasterns were good, her feet could be better.  From the side her proportions were correct, her topline, underline, and croup were good.  In motion, she was fluid, reaching well out in front, and driving with excellent follow through.  Exciting to watch, her performance was flawless.
 

RESERVE WINNERS BITCH- Ben Jo’s Encore Encore  

....A medium large, dark black and tan, in good condition.  She had a feminine head, medium eyes, and a good earset.   Feet and pasterns were good.  From the side, a slightly higher wither, and a shorter back would make her proportions ideal. Her back, however, was strong, her underline and croup were good.  Moving, she kept her feet low to the ground with good front reach and rear drive.  Her attitude was excellent.

 
BEST OF BREED- FV Ch. Hickoryhill’s Bull Durham TC HIC

....A medium large, black and redish tan, in beautiful coat and superb condition.  He had a masculine head, dark eyes and a good earset.  His feet and pasterns were good.  From the side his proportions were correct, his topline, underline, and croup were good.  He had fluid sidegait, reaching well out in front with a beautiful iron back and driving rear....powerful, but at the same time, effortless.  Handled by his owner, his performance outstanding, his attitude, excellent.
 

BEST OF OPPOSITE- Ch. Caralon Elite QED Can Do

..........A medium size, black & tan, in beautiful coat.  She had a gorgeous feminine head, with a good earset.  Feet and pasterns were good.  From the side her proportions, topline, and underline were good.  She moved with an outreaching shoulder, and a driving rear with good follow through.  A small amount of motion over her back would certainly improve with conditioning.  Like the BOB dog, her performance and attitude were excellent.
 

BEST PUPPY-Langlitz’s Unbelievable 

...........Medium size, black & tan in good coat.  Her head was feminine, her earset good.  Her proportions, topline and underline were good.  In motion, she was fluid, with a good shoulder and rear drive.  Handled by a “newbie”, she showed well, with good attitude, and won out over some very nice puppies.
