BOURNEMOUTH CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 13th August 2016
I would like to sincerely thank my two wonderful stewards who organised my ring for me so
splendidly and kept everything running as it should and Bournemouth CA for inviting me to
My overall impression of the breed is that size is once again diminishing and that there needs
to be more masculine males and more feminine bitches and there were several who had
seriously turned-out hind feet which affected movement.

1st Akehurst’s Jesterbrock Alpine Storm. 6 months old with nice head and expression,well
sprung ribs and broad chest. Delightful personality, moved well on a loose lead once he settled.
