Boston & District Canine Society

Breed: Australian Shepherd

Boston Ch Show 2018.

Australian Shepherds

It is a while since I judged the breed at this level. Things have changed in the breed.

Puppy - Dog

Entries: 5 Absentees: 0

1ST LAMINTONE EPIC INFERNO (AI) (MR D R, MRS U V & MISS L A FITCHES)

Good clean head on this youngster. Overall balance is good and scores highly on the move

when settled. Very good overall proportions and excellent drive behind. BPD I don’t

know what happened between this class and the challenge for BP but he really didn’t

perform anywhere near as well, there.

2ND SPARKAWAY SUPER SONIC (MISS T COWLEY)

Well shaped clean head. Good overall proportion with enough leg to body depth. Needs

To strengthen more behind but otherwise a promising youngster.

3RD NORDIC LIGHT DES COSTYS DU TOMBERG ( MRS HALLMARSDOTTIR)

Junior - Dog

Entries: 2 Absentees: 0

1ST ALLMARK THE SEQUEL JW (MR N & MRS A, MR A ALLAN & WINFROW)

A lively showdog who was kept on his toes all the time. A little too much white for me

 Excellent legs and bone. Good rib. Moving out enthusiastically.

2ND ALLMARK WILLY WONKA WITH JACANSHE (MRS J L & MISS E J FULLER)

Very much my style of dog but so very uninterested in showing today. Great overall

Proportions. Very balanced and this did show in side gait especially. Handled in an

 unexaggerated manner.

Post Graduate - Dog

Entries: 4 Absentees: 1

1ST TRIJEM MAGIC TRICK (MRS P MORLEY)

A good moving masculine boy. Not really got his mind on the job but excels in overall

 Balance. Good neck, body, legs and feet. Ears could be tidier.

2ND LYVEDEN PACON PALADIN (MRS A & MRS S CHALLENGER&HOOKER)

Rather lacking in the coat department. Still needs to mature in body and rear movement.

There is quality there but it needs to come to fruition.

3RD JOTARS RISING STAR (MR K J WHITE)

Open - Dog

Entries: 6 Absentees: 1

1ST CH/INT/LUX/IR CH AUSTRIAN DREAM BE WELL SUITED OF WISPAFETE JW SHCM

I (MISSES H M & S JONES & GIBBONS)

Beautifully presented male with very typical outline. Moved so soundly in every direction

With good convergence and

Showing good reach and drive. Excellent static and moving balance. Head could be less white

 but I thought him an easy winner in this class. BD and BOB

2ND SOMOMS JUST DO IT [ATC AU01630CAN] (MS L LEES)

Smaller male but again, moving out with reach and drive and very well balanced. Excellent

Bone for size and good body properties. Well presented.

3RD LYVEDEN TEXAS RANGER (MRS J KNOTT)

Puppy - Bitch

Entries: 7 Absentees: 3

1ST SOLOYAL SECRET ROMANCE (MISS J SUCH)

Medium sized bitch with many qualities. Lovely head, very well proportioned with correct

Ear set. Moving out very soundly if a little less than enthusiastic at times. But a very

Promising youngster BPB BP and delighted to see she went 2nd in the Pastoral Puppy Gp.

2ND TRIJEM RETURN OF THE MAGIC (MRS P MORLEY)

Taller leaner girl, very athletic in profile. Good for going away and straight up and down

But needs more time to fill the frame in.

Open - Bitch

Entries: 7 Absentees: 2

1ST MULTI CH ALLMARK VANITY FAYRE JW SHCM (MR N & MRS A ALLAN)

Lovely in profile with good reach of neck and topline evident, stacked and on the move.

Very pretty head piece. Moving out freely and soundly in all directions. BB

2ND WILDUC NEXT TO ME AT SPOTARTON SHCM (MRS J, MR P, MR R & MRS N LONGHURST

 & GREGORY)

Very typey bitch. Good profile and quite mature in outlook. Bit reluctant with her ears.

 In well presented weatherproof coat and very sound on the move.

3RD CH LYVEDEN TEXAS ROSE JW (MRS A CHALLENGER)
