Regular Class Judge Mr. David Guemple
Thank you to the PWCCWR for inviting me to judge the 2017 Specialty show. Hospitality was excellent as usual, the welcome basket in my lovely room was great, and the garment bag with the artistic rendering by Hope Weisburn, of one near and dear to me that will complement my shaving kit with Red Affair’s image, was wonderful! Thank you also to the show committee, my ring steward and all the people that it takes to put on such a top notch show. Thank you also to all the exhibitors who brought their lovely corgis for me to judge, overall quality was good and there were several “stars” in my eyes. Feet, bites, and nice heads were the status quo, but I observed the usual concerns for front structure and placement and rib to loin proportions which continue to be an issue. All of the dogs were shown in lovely condition, and those who were seasonally out of coat were clean and in good weight.

BEST OF BREED (21 entered, 3 absent)
While this would be considered a smaller show, the quality of entries was outstanding and it carried over into the specials class. It was exciting to see in the flesh some of the dogs you only hear of or see in pictures. As usual, there weren’t enough ribbons for the deserving exhibits, and a few that I felt were of high quality were left unrewarded.
BEST OF BREED, BEST VETERAN
GCHB. GREENWOODS MOONLIGHT MELODY Enough said. She continued her “star quality” ways all the way through the BOB judging even though it had gotten warm! She earned the highest honors, even though a few pressed hard to beat her, she held her own to the end.
BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX
GCHS. NCHANTED CONCERTO (GCh. Sandfox Cadenza x Ch. Nchanted Silk Teddy) Breeder: Carol Braunstein. Owners: Carol Braunstein & Virginia Gilman. A lovely rich red dog with an outstanding outline. Well put together with a correct front and deep driving rear. Lovely topline and good rib to loin proportions. He’s a very strong moving dog, covering ground really well. He pushed the breed winner hard for top honors. I was pleased to see that he was the son of my Veterans dog, and the sire of my Winners Bitch who went Best of Winners and was also a BOB contender.
GCHB. SANDFOX GOLDEN WHISTLER (GChB. Heartsong Brynlea Pavarotti x GCh. Sandfox Kismet) Breeder/Owner: Vicki L. Sandage. A very glamorous dog that was well put together and used himself very well.
GCH. BROGAN BRIGHT LIGHT (GCh. Heritage Brogan Light The Lamp x GCh. Brogan Tralee) Breeder/Owner: Mari M. Carroll. A very lovely type bitch with a very pretty head and lovely bone. She was balanced and well built, and a good clean mover.
AWARDS OF MERIT
GCH. SANDFOX CADENZA
CH. TOWNHILL ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET (GCh. Ciregna Thats Amore x GCh. Townhill Penny Lane) Breeders/Owners Mark Russo & Holly Russo.
GCH. JORASH CORGARD KEY LARGO, CGC (GCh. Heritage Brogan Light The Lamp x GCh. Jorash Key To Your Heart At Corgard) Breeders: Ellen Schusterson & Kandy Boll. Owners: Michaelann Mako, Richard Mako & Ellen Schusterson.
Sweepstakes Judge Ms. Molly Forbes
I would like to thank the members of the PWCCWR for inviting me to judge their Sweepstakes entry at their 19th annual specialty show. Having attended many Western Reserve specialties in the past, I have to say the weather on this day could not have been better at the new show site in a beautiful park right on Lake Erie. This made for a fun and enjoyable day for both dogs and exhibitors. A special thanks to Debbie Brooks, my ring steward, who kept everything running smoothly. Even though my entry was small, I was delighted with the quality of the dogs. Thank you for my judge’s gift, a hand-painted garment bag, created by the talented Hope Weisburn.

VETERAN DOGS 7 TO 10 YEARS (1 entered, 0 absent)
1. GCH. CREEKSIDE HARD WORKIN A glamorous red and white boy with a handsome, masculine head with a dark eye and good ear set. He has good bone and substance. He has a nice length of neck and back. He carries a level topline and has a well angulated rear. He moves cleanly coming and going but has a shorter upper arm which restricted his movement from the side. BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX IN VETERAN SWEEPSTAKES
VETERAN BITCHES 10 YEARS AND OVER (1 entered, 0 absent)
1. CORALIE BEAUCARE This little red and white girl loved being back in the ring today and strutted her stuff. She has a pretty feminine head with a nice dark eye. Her ear set was a bit high. She has a good length of neck with blended into a well angled shoulder. She moved cleanly from all directions and it was my pleasure to award her BEST IN VETERAN SWEEPSTAKES.
