WINDSOR – CHINESE CRESTED DOGS – 28/06/18
I thoroughly enjoyed judging my first set of CC’s in Chinese Cresteds. I was happy with the entry of 67, especially for a Thursday.
No shyness was present in any of the dogs today, it was very warm and i think the dogs enjoyed the sunshine.
Like judging any other breed, compromise plays a big part with the placings. Judging to type is sometimes a little difficult.
I thought the DCC and BCC winner complemented each other so nicely, when they were moving around the ring together for BoB they looked lovely together.
It was nice to see good sportsmanship in the breed, plenty of clapping for the winners and exhibitors congratulating each other.
I found no evidence of razor burns or clipper rash on any of the exhibits.
Class 530 VD/B (4 Entries) Abs: 1
what a lovely class to start the day with. The three dogs in this class are a real credit to their owners, all shown in fabulous condition.
1st: 1673 HELLMUTH Mr & Mrs S & A Omegaville Press Release For Shumllea (Imp) – a strong contender for a green card. Eye catching pink spotted bitch who has a beautiful clean outline, so well balanced. I liked her head properties, elongated skull with a nicely chiselled muzzle, large well set ears with plenty of furnishings. She has a lovely graceful neck, firm shoulders, straight front with the desired hare foot. Level topline with strong rear. She carried her tail up and out. Her movement was ultra sound, especially in the front, completely parallel. Expertly presented in first class condition. BVIB.
2nd: 1660 DOWSETT Miss D P Ch Doonbeg Bete Noir via Tteswood JW Sh.CM – a larger powder puff male, whom perhaps a little too big for ideal size, he was still balanced. He had a masculine head with nice clean cheeks, correct length of muzzle and good dentition. He has a lovely reach of neck, well laid shoulders with good front. Strong level back with excellent rear, lovely muscle tone. His coat was beautifully presented, and lovely soft texture. He moved well in the rear, just like a little more reach in front. Well handled.
3rd: 1664 EDWARDS Mrs L Speckled Lad of Foaldown TAF
Class 531 MPD (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: 1654 CROW Mrs D Arte Figure Next Level At Casacavallo (Fin Imp) NA – such an eye catching puppy, who was thoroughly enjoying himself in the ring. Yes, he’s a big lad and here’s hoping he doesnt grow on any more. 100% sound throughout, he is so well put together. Movement was a joy to watch, so elegant with plenty of reach in front and powering from the rear. His head is masculine,could be perhaps a touch more refined for ideal, lovely expressive dark almond eye, large erect ears that were low set. Lovely clean neck, super front with fine, yet strong bone. He has a super topline, so level. He carried his tail perfectly, up and out when in motion. Skin presented in first class condition. Happy showing temperament which won him BPIB.
2nd: 1694 MOYES, Mrs E & PUNTON Ms Y Bryelis The Witch Doctor – this young lad just needs a little more confidence. I preferred this chaps head, so clean and smooth, nice chiselling. He has low set ears that were nicely furnished. Super neck and topline, well sprung ribs. He has the correct length of leg, the desired hare feet. His skin was in beautiful condition as all from this kennel. He didnt move out half as well as 1st, a touch sluggish. This owner had to get ‘runners’ for all her dogs as i understand she has hip and knee problems. One to watch once he gets the hang of it.
3rd: 1669 GODFREY, Mr C & PEACOCK Mr I Godpeakiki Uptamis
Class 533 JD (6 Entries) Abs: 1

Excellent head shape, clean chiselled cheeks tapering into his muzzle. Tidy dentition. Eyes could be a shade darker for ideal. Lovely large well furnished ears, graceful strong neck leading on to well laid shoulders, straight front with good bone and hare feet. I liked his spirit level topline, strong rear with the correct angulation. He carried his tail up and out at all times. Moved with style, really driving from behind. A quality dog that should do well.
2nd: 1679 HINTON Mrs C Ajatiaza's Lover Boy at Cheeswood – a lovely headed dog that doesnt always make the best of himself. Super dark almond shaped eyes, correct length of muzzle without being over done. Excellent ear set and carriage. Lean neck that carried his head gracefully when it suited him. Very sound front and rear. I liked his body shape, slightly longer than square. Moved very soundly in both directions. Presented in lovely condition. Just needs to focus a little more on the job.

1st: 1655 CROW Mrs D Estillinis The Huntsman At Casacavallo JW (Imp) – my CC & BoB winner today. He was exactly what i had in mind today, a small, active, graceful and elegant toy dog that moves with plenty of reach and drive. His head for me was spot on, that desired elongated skull, lovely dark expressive almond shaped eyes, his muzzle tapering with clean refined cheeks. His ear set was perfect, large mobile erect ears with plenty of lovely furnishings. He has a super crest of hair starting on the his stop and carries all the way down his neck. His neck is strong, yet graceful. His head is carried so proudly standing and on the move, level firm topline with sound front, fine bone but not delicate in any way, correct hare foot. His rear is strong with excellent muscle tone.

A pleasure to watch him make the final 6 in the strong toy group. His first CC, good luck with him in the future.

Although a big lad, he has a fabulous outline and silhoutte, his tail never stopped wagging. Yes, i would like a little more refinement in the head department, but he has lovely dark almond shaped eyes that were expressive and alert. Super low set ears of a lovely size and good furnishings. Excellent neck and topline, sound as a pound front with strong bone, but without being heavy or cloddy. I liked his body proportions, slightly longer than square. He has a broad and deep chest and rounded bum. His rear was strong with excellent muscle tone. Moved a dream, big long front strides and powerful rear action.Loved his cocky and full of himself attitude. RES CC.

I loved his crest, such a glamorous look, long and flowing right down his neck. He has well laid shoulders, clean front with good hare feet. Deep chest and level topline. His rear was sound, firm with plenty of muscle. Skin was beautifully presented. He didn’t move out as well as 1st, lacked a little luster on the move. A quality dog.
