You selected the Nominees, we selected two comments that best sum up each Candidate.
I Vote for ANN ROGERS CLARK:
I learned a lot from her and try to apply those lessons in my own rings. She knows everyone in the ring but tries to concentrate on what she knows about the breed first.
~ Name withheld by request
Annie did not waste any time finding the best dogs... she was not influenced by the other end of the leash, but looked at the dogs!
~ Lynne Rosebrock - Carroy Irish Wolfhounds
I Vote for JOSEPH (JOE) GREGORY:
(He) is not averse to checking the standard while he is in the ring. He is patient with new exhibitors and dogs
... has fun while he is judging and tries to make the show experience fun and pleasant for each exhibitor. Owner-handlers and professionals are equal in his ring. Love showing to this judge, even when I don’t win!
~ Memory Armstrong - ScarletOak Great Danes
The judge who, in my opinion, epitomizes the sport of purebred dogs would be Joe Gregory. He clearly loves to judge,
loves the dogs and is always kind to them and courteous to the exhibitors. I would show to Joe Gregory always!!
~ Mary Ann Leonard - Sastya Gordon Setters
I Vote for
I think that Kenneth McDermott is one of the finest judges that I have encountered. He knows what the Standard for the breed requires. His judging is honest and fair and he goes out of his way to be helpful to exhibitors.
~ Caryl Alten - Carden Scots
He is a thoughtful judge, takes his
time and good with the dogs. Even when he gets it wrong, it is okay
and we go back to him again ~ Sandy Green - GSD
