American Cocker Spaniel 

Dogs 

Junior 

1: MANSER Mrs A & Mr J Toybox It's A Rap At Nujax (Imp USA), nice class to start. Brown and tan boy who pleases very much for type and shape. I liked his head and expression. Well angulated front. Long neck into strong top line and well set tail. Moves well in profile, holding his top line and uses himself particularly in front and it was here that he won the class. RCC and a title ahead I’m sure 

2: JENNINGS Mr D Alibama Blackmail, masculine black boy, beautifully presented. Like him for type and he holds himself well. Just preferred the front of the winner. 

3: KIRKHAM Mrs N Paddington Des Perles D' Onyx   

Post Graduate 

1; KIRKHAM Mrs N Paddington Des Perles D' Onyx , 3rd in junior, he is a super colour and well presented. More typical in outline here and moved out better in front. 

2: FEAR Mr A M & Mrs J A Wraxhill Getysburg Address, buff boy in pleasing coat. Decent top line and well set tail. He didn’t use himself today and lost his outline in profile. Super temperament.    

Limit 

1: KNAPP Miss J Gablesquest Glory Days, Black boy, in good coat, masculine in outlook, strong top line. Holds himself on the move.    

Open  

1: MORRIS, Mrs B & BRYANT, Miss L J & NELSON Mrs L Am Ch Sh Ch Ir Ch Silhouette Troubling Nasailleen, black dog bang on form and presented to perfection. His head is pleasing although would perhaps prefer a tad more rise over the skull, super neck into well made front and firm top line. Well set tail. Pleases very much for size and type. On the move he has an easy action, holds his topline and uses himself and can never be overlooked. Precise on the out and back. A pleasure to award him the CC to add to his growing collection, BOB and delighted to see him win the Group. 

2: SUNTER , Miss L & SUNTER , Mrs A & PINCHEN Miss Mycalleys Kennedy JW Sh.CM, buff boy who has a masculine yet balanced head. Pleases for type and he too has a strong topline. Moved precisely on the out and back, but not the forward reach today of the winner. Decent boy though. 

3: ARROWSMITH, Mr K & VORDERSTRASSE Mr K Very Vigie My Coeur De Lion   

Veteran 

1: SHEPPARD Mrs V J Almondsbury Flamboyant At Shadowview, 9 year old tri colour who is full of himself and belying his age. Thoroughly enjoying his day out.   

Bitches 

Puppy 

1: BRYANT, Miss L & NELSON Mrs L Zarcrest Having A Tantrum With Nasailleen NAF,b/t bitch with lots of potential and so much style for one so young. Very pleasing and feminine head and expression. Front assembly superb and she uses it on the move. Strong top line and a real attitude. BP 

2: HARRIS Mr W C Zarcrest Black N'tantrum, similar type and she too has lots to like. Not quite the front of the winner and this was where it was decided. 

3: KIRKHAM Mrs N Oolatruly Mine       

Junior 

1: BRYANT, NELSON, CAINE, & LEE Sh Ch Nasailleen Secret Liaison, Black bitch in glorious coat, presented to perfection. Very pleasing outline and firm top line with well set tail. Just a tiny bit erratic on the move today, but so worthy of her title.    

Limit 

1: JENNINGS Mr D Alibama Time Fly's, super black bitch for size and type. Pleasing head and expression, her front assembly is superb and she has strong neck into firm top line. Well presented. On the table she pleases enormously. Did enough on the move to win the class but in the challenge she started to put the brakes on and so had to be content with the RCC, shame as she is most certainly worthy of a title and it shouldn’t be far off. 

2: BLACKWELL-GOULDING Mrs S A Truly Yours All You Need Is Love,  r/w bitch who is super to go over and screams type. She just lets herself down on the move which is such a shame.   

Open 

1: HARWOOD Miss M Mischtikals Manhattan At Minarets b/w bitch presented beautifully, won the class on showmanship and kept her outline in profile. Pretty head and expression, strong top line and in full coat. In the challenge she continued to perform and moved out covering the ground and holding her outline. Putting on a show, she had to have the CC. Let’s hope her title isn’t far off. 

2: WHITE, Mrs E & WHITE Miss H Admiral's Shou A-one In A Million At Tantripp (Imp), chocolate who pleases so much on the table, just let herself down moving as she seemed just a tad reluctant.
