2006 (JUNE) BULLMASTIFF CLUB OF VICTORIA INC. CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW RESULTS & CRITIQUES
Judge - Mr Bill Walkey (NSW)
Overall, I was pleased with the quality of the entry. A couple of things stood out that bothered me, though. There was a preponderance of East-West fronts, many with splayed feet. Another item was too many light eyes and high rears. In many cases, the exhibit was good… until you looked along the top line and saw the high rump, and not just on young dogs.
