Judge: Mr David Joynes

I was very pleased and honoured to be asked to officiate at the Mastiff Association's ninth championship show. My thanks to the Officers and Committee for inviting me; to the excellent stewards who did a marvelous job organising and running the ring; and' of course' to all the exhibitors for supporting the show.

As I am sure you all know, we still have a great diversity of type in heads, conformation and coats - from the long narrow and shallow muzzle to the ultra short; from the short legged stocky type to the tall and narrow; and from the fine to heavy coated - and this was all in evidence today. Straight stifles and lack of angulation are still a problem. I don't think that all of our problems will ever be overcome but please - to all the people who are breeding - think of what is going to be produced when stock with similar faults are mated. With just a few exceptions temperaments seem to be getting better with only a small minority resenting my attentions.
