2015 Specialty Results 10th Anniversary Show

Bullmastiff Club of Queensland

10th Championship Show

Saturday 6th June, 2015

 

My sincere thanks to the officers and committee for their kind invitation to judge at this very special show and also for their hospitality throughout. My thanks to exhibitors for their support and sportsmanship of my placings and also for their record entry. A very friendly, well organised show with an award table crammed with wonderful engraved trophies, sashes and medals for winners and best opposites of class. The breed is in safe hands with these dedicated enthusiasts. On a general note please do not confuse substance with fat. Some lovely examples were carrying too much weight, spoiling their outline and affecting their movement. I was really pleased with the quality throughout but especially with my class winners many of whom could compete with the best anywhere. My BIS and RUBIS are both superb examples of the breed and are indeed world class. Congratulations to their breeders and owners.
