First time awarding Challenge Certificates in this historical, strongly built well coated breed. My thanks to Paignton & District Fanciers Society for the judging invitation and to the exhibitors for their support. I was pleased with the overall quality of the entry and especially my winners.


Class 1050 PD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 2872 MANLEY Mrs J Skimarque Talvi Susi a well grown young male having desirable bone and body with an abundance of coat. Pleasing in overall appearance, being shapely, balanced and in proportion. Very attractive head which is masculine, strong and has width but all in proportion. Confident and friendly expression.  True well-constructed front, well grown body, short firm loin. Stands firm on good legs and feet. Moved well although tended to high step occasionally in front. A very promising puppy; Best Puppy in Breed.


Class 1051 JD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 2883 THOMAS Mr & Mrs B Elbereth Tuulenpoika a shapely young male who has an attractive head of pleasing proportions, width, length and depth of muzzle. Dark well shaped eyes which enhances his expression. Strong, moderately long neck set on to well laid shoulders. Balanced in angulations front and rear. Well boned true front which I preferred to 2nd. Pleasing overall length of body with pleasing spring and depth of chest. Moderate angles, stable hindquarters. Moved well with breed typical tail carriage.

2nd: 2874 MITCHISON Mr & Mrs A Kaijartuu Velho a profusely coated sizeable male who is well boned and sturdy in body. Masculine and strong in head with well set, good sized and well shaped ears. He has pleasing bone in front but tended to splay when standing. Although he has all the make and shape, he needed to tighten up all through to show himself to advantage. Similarly, on the move he moved true enough but lacked enthusiasm.


Class 1052 PGD (5 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 2882 SISLEY-SMITH Miss S Tabanyaruu Qtamo Onni a shapely well-proportioned male who although not in full coat has enough covering to complement his excellent overall construction. He has a handsome breed typical head which is so attractive in shape, proportions and expression. Stands “four-square” presenting an eye-catching profile picture. Well boned true front and strong in body with good angles front and rear. An exciting prospect who still has scope to further improve. Moved well with a true, free and easy action.
