The Midland Dobermann Club Ruby Anniversary  

     Championship Show 18TH November 2007.

Dobermann Bitches

The honour of Judging at the Midland Dobermann Clubs Ruby Anniversary Championship show was firstly for me, very much appreciated, then to receive a fantastic entry of 165 bitches making 195 entries, makes me very humble. So I send this sincere message of thanks to the Committee, the Exhibitors and also to my able stewards Mr and Mrs Woodward. Thank You.
The Bitches you presented me with today all had good temperaments and were well presented, but you have left me Very Concerned with regard to a lot of Overweight Females, if you were unplaced or down the line this was the main reason and a major concern. Take a good hard look at your show bitch now. Is she Elegant and Capable of Great Speed? Elegant is in the first line of the Breed Standard. I am aware the weather has been atrocious this year, so lack of exercise springs to mind, just cut the food intake down then. Overweight is not a Construction fault, so it can be easily corrected, don’t shorten their lives with obesity and strain on their hearts, please.
