part of continuing education for our judges, two breeds were presented
at the Judges' Workshop at the 2011 Annual in Reston, VA. Our beautiful
Japanese Bobtails were one of the breeds featured at this workshop.
Bishop, Breed Council Secretary presented the Japanese Bobtail to our
CFA judges. She was assisted by Douglas Myers, Melanie Morgan, and Lynn
Search. Doug, Melanie, and Lynn presented cats brought for the program
by our breed council members. They demonstrated various aspects of the
standard and of handling techiques as Karen discussed these. The judges
were very interested in the presentation. They asked a number of
questions and participated in discussions during the workshop. Both
longhair and shorthair Japanese Bobtails were presented during the
program and judges were able to handle the cats after the presentation.
judges were appreciative, and many commented on the excellence, of the
presentation. Judges have referenced the workshop when judging Japanese
Bobtails at shows after the Annual.
