Judges Critique Mrs W Slayter - NSW:
Ch Rymiska Grand Duke
First impression as he powered briskly and boldly into the ring, a short compact dog with confident carriage, clean, straight and sharp movement, looking alert and friendly, with a fox like head and high set tightly curled tail, lightly plumed on top and with black tip, and a thick profuse coat forming a large ruff around his moderately long and arched neck.
Overall coat harsh, offstanding and dense.
Correctly and so good to see, it was a mixture of gray and black, very pale undercoat and black tipped body hairs, with cream forelegs and hocks, all markings including those at the shoulder were definite. And – most importantly clearly defined SPECTACLES, with fine penciled eyeliner slanting up from the outer corner of his almond shaped eyes to the lower corner of his dark, small, erect ears, this is an unique breed hallmark which could be seen even from the distance as the dog went around the ring.
On examination, wedge shaped head with definite stop when seen from the side, dark muzzle equal in length to flat skull.
Correct angulation fore and aft which gave him such typical movement and carriage. Catlike, tight, well padded, cream, round feet.
