15th Championship Show - 30/03/08
Mr Fred Gadd (Gadkeys) - UK
A.C.T. Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of NSW,
thank the officers and committee for the invitation to judge at their
prestigious show and a very special thank you to the exhibitors for
making such a wonderful entry of 227 exhibits and a special thanks to
the exhibitors and spectators for their generous applause and
acceptance of all my decisions; and for taking particular care of my
welfare, with a very special thanks to my ring steward Andrew for
keeping me busy.
I was impressed with type, especially size being near as possible to the standard and of course the tremendous condition with their coats gleaming. All the exhibits were in excellent condition with only one exception a delightful exhibit grossly over weight! There can be no excuse.
the week-end started dramatically for me, on the flight from Sydney to
Canberra I took a bit of a turn and was taken from the aircraft
straight to Canberra hospital where I spent the night; following a
multitude of tests, to discover that I was in good health suffering
from dehydration and released Friday lunch time, to great relief to
myself and to the organisers of this show.
My Dog CC, and Best of Breed was the dog- Marsh’s, Grand Champion Neworder Bombe Alaska, who had the most exquisite head and expression: skull square and deep through with a tremendous muzzle, large nose tight flews (lips), powerful under jaw and large clean white teeth and a perfect scissor bite, highly developed neck: short and superbly arched packed with muscle, clean throat, widening into outstandingly shoulders, down into a fine-looking front, highly developed chest, well muscled, ample bone, large thickly padded feet. The profile view was equally as good, deep into his brisket excellent spring of rib, remarkable rotation level top line short coupled but not cobby, tremendous angulations enough stifle with the engine-room packed with hard muscle, when I asked him to move he showed off his rotation with exceptional forward reach as could be seen in profile; with tremendous natural drive, coming towards me, head held high with a bob of confidence, he knew he was in charge and didn’t mind showing it. I had great pleasure in awarding him Best Dog and on the day BOB
My Reserve CC and Reserve B.O.B. dog was Trimble’s Stoneheart Tom Foolery who was no less a dog and of whom you could say very much the same thing, however this youngster was up on his toes taking the bull by the horns challenging me to look else where, with a magnificent head and forequarters wonderful profile, short coupled packed engine-room and moved with discernable drive another confident youngster who deserved his awards.
Best Bitch and Reserve B.I.S, Kilby’s, Linwest Midnight Angel was superb in type handled, and moved to catch ones eye. Strong head with the grandest of expressions, chiselled for-face, punishing jaw, excellent front elevation, broad and deep into her brisket, clean bite powerful neck excellent shoulder placement, tremendous rotation and forward reach her profile just continued on from the front, first-rate rib, and top line short coupled powerful hind quarters pleasing movement.
Best Bitch, Walsh’s, CH Kypajuka Black Widow its such a
pity that B.B was in such great form as Res B.B pushed her hard for
her placing, in many ways equal in type strong head with the correct
expression, tremendous neck widening out at the shoulders excellent
placement down into the grandest of fronts broad straight bone,
correctly padded feet, deep into her brisket, fine profile short
coupled, but not cobby, excellent drive on the move.
was a real credit was type it was there in abundance and I had no
problems with either height or condition, what ever you are doing keep
puppy is a class that I rarely come across, however type and condition
was almost overwhelming. I chose the ones that I believed showed the
greater promises, however they were all adorable, and probably the
only time in their life, innocent. My description of the baby puppies
will be a little vague because there is no way that I can predict
their future, especially as some excellent types were un-placed; I
would have liked to hand out more ribbons as it is always a pity that
quality has to leave the ring.
like others really enjoy the puppy classes and I was not disappointed,
the future of the breed in
Borstaff Cookie Crumbbs I loved every moment with the baby

in type but only the future can tell she was confident and stood
remarkably well and performed like a professional.
