Seaham & District Canine Society

Thank you to the committee of Seaham & D.C.S for inviting me to judge at this friendly, well run show. There were some lovely toy dogs, however I think some could do with a little training to reach their full potential.

AV Toy Puppy

Difficult class to assess as both were babies who played up their handlers, though were thoroughly enjoying their day out!

1st Pott’s SAMARANDAS SORCEROR TO ADREEAM

7 month Black Griffon. Lively and alert boy who showed well. Very confident. Correct harsh, wiry coat. Strong level topline which he held on the move. Nice small feet. Well set tail.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Open

1st Davison’s ABBETHWAY MONTGOMERY

Maculine tri boy of 18 months. Beautiful soft head with large dark eyes. High set ears with plenty of feather. Nicely arched neck leading on to a level back. Movement was difficult to assess due to his naughtiness, but when he showed glimpses of behaving, his movement was free with good drive from behind. A very nice dog, who played his handler up unfortunately.

King Charles Spanial Open

1st Maddison’s ALAMBRA RICH RUBY

3 year old Ruby dog. Masculine domed head with dark wide set eyes. Good low set ears. Well laid back shoulders. Excellent deep chest and good short back. Moved well with drive. Handled well.

Japanese Chin Open

1st Holcroft’s SLEEPYHOLLOW NERO

Black and white, 18 months old boy. Presented beautifully with long, soft straight coat. Broad skull, large nostrils, and very short, well cushioned muzzle. Good tail carriage. In the group, just felt that he toed in on the move.

1st Westwood’s DARLEAIR MY WAY

15 month old feminine bitch. Friendly and lively girl who was very alert. Nice head with slightly rounded skull. Fine muzzle with well defined stop. Nice dark eyes and large rounded ears. Good length of neck. Level topline. Fabulous bend of stifle. Really liked this girl. BOB & Group 3.

Papillon Open
