City Of Birmingham Champ Show 3rd September 2017:- Judge Albert Wight
2nd Post Grad Bitch
Cook and Grundy's Kyuutens Youji NameKuji. this white dog was just a tad plain in expression for me. Perhaps more stop definition would have aided him? His topline rises a bit, lovely forechest and the straightest of forelimbs. i would like more width in thigh and he could have settled a bit more on the move. In excellent coat.
Japanese Akita Inu Club Open Show 3rd September 2017:- Judge Tracy Morgan
1 Kyuuten's Youji Namekuji. White lass with, dark eye of correct size, shape and set, arched neck lacking coat, and needing to develop more in front, moderate angles and tight feet with adequate bone. High set tightly carried tail she moved ok coming and going, was better in sidegait but desperately needed her jacket to fill the eye more and dress her outline.
1st Special Yearling Award:- Judge Ashlie Pike
1 Cook and Grundy's Kyuuten's Youji Namekuji. 21 month old white bitch. What I would describe as an honest bitch. Lovely balance between both head and tail. Although acceptable, I would personally prefer black pigmentation on the nose. However, her expression is not unpleasant, and should continue to improve with age. Ears are a little big and pointed, but again, this will improve with maturity. Lovely correct scissor bite. Full tail, tightly curled sitting high upon a straight topline. Small cat like feet. Correct proportions and conformation which is only highlighted further when moving. This bitch's movement made her the winner of this class hands down. Incredibly well presented.
