Dogs.   Miss M Morrison
I would like to thank the Officers, Committee of the Scottish Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, and the exhibitors for their warm welcome to the Club's Open Show.
It was an honour to accept the Club's invitation to judge this Show, and I was pleased for the Club that the number of exhibits, and entries were up. To the exhibitors thank you for coming, and presenting some lovely Cavaliers. Also thanks to my two stewards Jim and Isobel.
There was one downside, as Cavaliers eyes are one of their main features, more attention to in some exhibits, would have been more beneficial, as dirty, and stained eyes spoilt the overall picture.

Moved freely with plenty of spirit and drive, around the ring.
2 Swanton’s Pamojill Robin
Lovely ruby boy, deep ruby colour overall, soft silky coat of good length. Masculine head, and expression, long feathered leathers, large dark eyes. Sound construction throughout. Moved well when on the move, but when standing could have been a bit happier, so lost out to winner.

Dripping in a soft silky coat, displaying a lovely outline when standing. Harmonious construction to body. She showed the youngsters how it’s done. A good example of the breed always lasts, however old, but nowadays some judges regard an exhibit over 4 years of age as too old, disregarding the quality of the exhibit, because of its age. Not so in this case, and I was pleased to award her Best Bitch, and Reserve Best in Show.
