Gundog Group

Group 1 and BIS: Eyeington’s Meadowdale Chaos JW, ESS. A fine example of the breed and typifying the standard this 2 yr old dog headed a very good group. He totally filled my eye when posed with his flowing lines and strong, compact body displaying the slight raciness that sets the ESS apart from the rest of the Spaniel family. His balance is apparent as he stands most comfortably to show off his many attributes. His head is very handsome with a beautiful almond shaped eye giving him such a gentle expression and reflecting his obvious friendly and biddable nature. His strong neck flows into well laid shoulders and his depth and spring of rib give him plenty of heart and lung room. His well muscled loins add to his strength of body and his hindquarters are moderate and broad. His movement is totally reflective of his construction with an easy stride and precise footfall and again displays his obvious type by swinging his forelegs straight forward from the shoulder; going away he shows a very clean pair of heels. Turned out to absolute perfection and totally at one with his handler I could not fault his performance. In the Best in Show ring he stormed his way to the top.

Group 2 was Monaghan’s impressive and powerful Clumber Spaniel Sh Ch Tweedsmuir Dambuster JW. He oozes quality, style and personality and is a great ambassador of the breed. From his square muzzle and well developed flews through his long, deep body to his beautifully carried tail he simply flows and shows no exaggeration whatsoever. Anyone doubting the activeness of the Clumber should watch this boy power round the ring; he is more than capable of doing a day’s work. Group 3 Bates’ glamorous o/b English Setter Valsett Starlite Ruby Blush at Tudorfield. She carries her head so well on the move and is very clean over neck and shoulders. She has a lovely expression, excellent forehand and good balance throughout. Her movement is fluid and positive with a lively tail action. Group 4 William’s beautiful and very well named Labrador Millerdan Vision of Love JW ShCM. Lovely type, strongly built and broad in appearance but maintains her femininity. Clean cut head with strong foreface and jaw leaving me in no doubt of her ability to carry game. Her neck is strong and leads into well placed shoulders and she stands on well boned legs with fabulous second thigh development and beautifully round and compact feet. Her coat is clearly fit for that of a water loving dog and her typical Otter tail must be of great advantage. Moves true with open side gait and keeps her topline level.

Puppy Group

Group 1 Monahan’s Clumber Spaniel Tweedsmuir Krushed Ice. I was totally captivated by this little darling; she exudes character, charm and personality. Her body is strong and balanced with big ribs and strong, powerful quarters but it was her beautiful head and exquisite expression that I found so enchanting. She has that wonderful, thoughtful air about her that is typical of Clumber Spaniels and is surely destined for the top. Group 2 Reed’s Cocker Spaniel Reemif Ice Ice Baby. Lovely type being square and compact with substance and depth. Has a very pretty head with clean back skull, muscular neck, well angulated forequarters and stands on strongly boned legs with firm, thickly padded feet. Moved well with good tail carriage. Group 3 Ayers’ very attractive Golden Retriever Lochtaymore Candy Floss. Displays great balance throughout, deep brisket and short, strong loin. Well muscled behind and moved well carrying a strong level topline. Group 4 Eyeington’s ESS Jamieson Jinx of Meadowdale. Has it all going for him with his excellent breed type, substance, strong neck, deep brisket and true ESS action. His feet are excellent and his movement is smooth and ground covering.
