Hi, the show went well. We got a 2. place. It was funny and I think we will try it again some day.
here is what the judge (from England) wrote:
Very well marked blenheim, who moved and showed beautifully. Exellent temperement, good back and well turned stiffles. A little short in neck, would prefer more filled in muzzle and darker nose pigmentation.
I have 2 questions maybe you can help me:
1) what does stiffles mean?
2) and what does muzzle means? (I asked a lady who said it was referring to her head/ jaws/ nose area where she should have been broader.I myself thought it was referring to her whole body because she has walked with a limp for 1½ months. She has only been well for 3 weeks.
Stifle is a knee-- if a dog has good structure, it will have distinctive 'angles'.
Muzzle refers to the nose and mouth area. Judges like a lot of cush in that area.
