A wild and windy day for the Northern Great Dane Club and their Championship Show. Sheila Richens judged the males and awarded Ch. Selmalda Jealous Guy 1st in Open Dog and later the RCC. Gillian Rose judged the bitches and awarded Ch. Selmalda Oh Lori 2nd in Open Bitch. With the final decisions between both judges Guy was awarded Reserve Best In Show. Delighted with our kids who both performed impeccably, we are justifiably proud. Here is Judge Sheila Richens critique -Very well known winner, and I can understand why. Well marked, dark brindle, with super classic head. Dark eye and melting expression. Strong crested neck with good shoulder placement, and straight bone. Not as wide in front as some, which can effect feet placement, but has excellent spring of rib and depth to chest. Correct topline with hard well angulated rear, and good width across croup, which enabled him to travel around the ring with ease, with a lithe springy action with precision. This dog ,when standing, cannot be ignored. His outline, condition, and presentation is second to none. A worthy champion, and happy to give him RCC today. Well done.
