Samoyed

VD/B (3) 1st Freer & Smith’s Ch Nikara Diamond Dancer. This fabulous dog certainly has the wow factor! Great breed type and typical outline. Masculine but not coarse in anyway. Super head, almond eye and the breed typical ‘Sammy smile’ Excellent conformation which comes together on the move where he covers the ground with plenty of reach and drive. Correct feet. Excellent coat for texture, density and presentation. Admired him many times from ring side and pleased to have the chance of hands-on. He must go down as a breed great. BD, BV & BOB. Thrilled to see he took BVIS. Congratulations!

2nd Odwyer’s Ch Blueaegean Aphrodite By Kalinski. 8 year old bitch and a very worthy Ch. Beautiful head and expression. Good reach of neck, deep chest and soundly made all through. Moved very well with high set and carried tail. Immaculate coat.

PD (3) 1st Kirkwood & Jones’ Vandreem Imperial Kazhiya. Cracking 6 month old pup. Beautifully put together and so well balanced for his tender age. Excellent head, almond eye and smallish, thick, well set ears. Shows himself very well, attentive to his handler who got the best out of him. Excellent mover. Must have a bright future. BP & PG2.

2nd Thomas’ Nikara Secret Agent. Another promising baby. Excellent type and outline, just not as developed in chest at this stage. Beautiful head, excellent coat and good to go over. Moved very well. Will swap places many times with 1st in the future, I am sure.

PGD (2) 1st Mann’s Nikara Dream Maker. Super young dog built on smaller lines. Gives off a breed typical outline with his correct height to length ratio. Wedge-shaped head, dark, almond eye and well set and used ears. Slightly short in neck. Good angles, standing on correct feet. High set tail. Easy, free mover. Good coat. Close-up in the challenge.

OD (3) 1st Badger’s Kalinski Dionysus Avec Snosett. Masculine dog but not overdone in anyway. Pleasing head and expression. Good ears, well used. Excellent pigment. Good overall shape. Functional, well-feathered feet. Moved soundly and true in all directions. Thick, double coat. RBD

2nd Jones’ Ch Vandreem Imperial Kai. Very impressive in outline. Super head and muzzle proportions, eyes could be clearer but correct almond shape. Good pigment. Excellent ear size, set and thickness. Strong neck, good angles front and back. Moved ok, just appeared to be a bit heavy all through. In full coat. Well handled.

PB (3) Three really promising babies. 1st Webb & Bates’ Rosskaja Show Me The World. Very mature for her 6 months, well grown with strong bone but still feminine. Correct wedge -shaped head. Excellent eye giving desired expression. Scissor bite. Correct ears. Good conformation. Correct, well-feathered feet. Excellent tail set and carriage. Lovely puppy coat. Sound mover, once settled.

2nd Kirkwood & Gwynne’s Vandreem Imperial Katriona. 6 month old pup of great appeal and promise. Lovely head and expression. Scissor bite and full pigment. Good reach of neck. Correct bone. Easy mover, just needs to tighten in front, which should come with maturity.

3rd Mann’s Nikara Secret Dreamer.

JB (1) 1st South’s Reach For The Stars With Aleski. Beautiful youngster. 15 months old and shows good potential. Wedge-shaped, feminine head. Good eye shape and correctly set ears. Moderate neck and angles front and back. Tail high set and carried well. Not in full coat, but what she has is of good texture and immaculately presented. Sound mover from all directions.

PGB (4) 1st Brandenberg & Jackson’s Taronakits Its Karmen. Smaller bitch of outstanding quality. Loved her head and expression. Small, well set ears. Good eye. Excellent conformation with a deep chest for her size. Stands on functional feet. Real showgirl who put in a great performance. Moved with reach and drive. Pushed hard in the challenge. RBB.

2nd Howlett’s Tiksi Snowstorm. Another of good type and pleasing size. Not in her best coat today and looking a bit long for ideal balance. Feminine, shapely head. Good to go over. Sound mover. Liked her a lot.

LB (3) 1st Thomas’ Zeelukzak Om Shanti. Slightly bigger built bitch. Sound breed type. Good head to muzzle ratio. Excellent ears, used to advantage. Good reach of neck leading to a sound front. Firm topline. Good quarters. Correct coat texture. Moved well with freedom and drive.

OB (5) 1st Odwyer’s Kalinski Dushka Maia. Loved this ultra-feminine bitch for type, balance of outline and her overall quality. Beautiful head piece with the required ‘Sammy smile’ Excellent pigment. Reachy neck, deep chest. Good lay of shoulder and return of upper arm. Firm topline and muscular loins. Well angled behind leading to low set hock and good feet. Moved out well with good reach and drive. Excellnt coat, well presented and good texture. Showed her socks off to beat some good bitches here today.

2nd Webb & Bates’ Ch Smiliesam Line Dancer. Worthy Ch. Similar in size to 1st but not quite the reach of neck. Gorgeous head and expression. Small, thick ears. Soundly constructed but carrying a bit too much weight. Full coat of good texture. Easy mover and an excellent tail.
