Championship Show

Had been looking forward to this appointment very much indeed & had hoped I might get the opportunity to get my hands on a few more dogs. I did appreciate those who did bring dogs & I hope the breed experiences an increase in numbers at shows in the coming years. 

Postgraduate (0 entries). 

Open Dog (1) 1 Knights & Stokes’ Ch Toveri Turo of Lelaps, appealing type & quality, typical head, dark eyes & pigment, small ears, moderate bone. Would prefer slightly firmer forehand. Correct amount of body, very nice light & springy movement, looked good going around but moved a shade close behind. Typical tail curl & carriage. 

Open Bitch (4, 2 absent) 1 Knights & Stokes’ Ch Toveri Tosca of Lelaps, attractive bitch, nice head with small ears, body slightly longer than high, good forehand. Perhaps carrying a shade too much weight but the overall impression was very typical & alert, moderate bone, coat in good bloom, tail of correct curl & set, light & active mover; 2 Byard & Greer’s Valokki Kuura, quite a fine bitch, wedgy head, small ears, square outline. Was a bit lacking in coat today & what she had could have been of a slightly harsher texture. Medium amount of body, stood slightly high in rear at times. Quite a sound mover, good tail.
