Breed – CKCS 

Judge – Mrs Kelly Lee (Kelrick)

I would like to thank the committee of Alfreton & District Canine Society for inviting me to judge, my steward for the day, Bruce Jackson who kept the ring running smoothly, and the exhibitors for their support and attendance. I was delighted with such a nice entry of quality dogs to go over.

P: (6,1) 1. Callaghan & Todd’s Ellemich Parisienne at Callyspride. Lovely 11 month old Blenheim puppy bitch presented in immaculate condition, with rich chestnut markings. Nice shape, good neck and level topline which she held on the move. Correct angulation. Pretty head with large dark round eyes and well set ears. Correct dentition. Lovely temperament – a very promising puppy. BPIB.

2. Callaghan & Todd’s Callyspride Little Minx. Very raw 8 month old Blenheim puppy, but has lots to like. Moved well once she settled down. Presented beautifully with a gleaming coat. Nice angulation and shape, pretty head with melting expression. Just needs time to mature.

J: (5,2) 1. Callaghan & Todd’s Ellemich Parisienne at Callyspride (see puppy).

2. Tarabad’s Frondil’s Bright Fuschia. 14 month old, beautifully presented Black and Tan bitch. Appeared nervous on the table, but moved well with good reach and drive once settled. Good angulation and lovely head with dark expressive eyes and well set ears, correct scissor bite. Nice compact shape.

PG: (6,2) 1. Knight’s Carolus Miss Fantasy JW. Well presented 2 year old Blenheim bitch with rich chestnut, well broken markings. Lovely shape, short coupled with correct angulation and good turn of stifle. Pretty head with round, dark eyes and melting expression, correct dentition. Moved well, keeping a level topline at all times.

2. Tarabad’s Frondil’s Bright Fuschia (see Junior).

O: (6,2) 1. Tarabad’s Khatibi Bark Obama JW. Stunning 20 month old Black & Tan dog with raven black coat and rich tan markings, presented in gleaming, silky condition. Fabulous head with melting expression, long well set ears and round, dark eyes. Correct dentition. Good turn of stifle which he used to good effect as he moved gracefully round the ring, maintaining a level topline at all times. Full of personality, what a fantastic showman this boy is! BOB

2. Knight’s Carolus Don Rico JW. Well presented 5 year old, heavily marked Blenheim dog. Lovely shape and size, compact with good angulation. Fabulous head with lovely melting expression and long, well set ears. Moved beautifully with a level topline at all times. It was a tough decision between 1st and 2nd places.
