Critique by David R Craig

BIS went to the Boxer bitch, Bell’s Surfstone Calypso, br/w of lovely quality who took my eye the moment she entered the ring, super carriage and profile movement showing nobility, covers good ground with good reach in front and real drive behind, holds her excellent outline beautifully at all times, very good head, well made all through with good front and hind angulation, short back and shown in super condition, one to carry a title for sure I would think;

RBIS was the Ibizan Hound, Ir Ch Afildaor Pandemonium, to whom it had been a pleasure to award the Hound Group, I was told that she presently has 2 CCs, such a lovely hound with the correct slight hover apparent on the move, good luck for her UK title;

BPIS was the black Labrador dog, Cook’s Exelby Salsola, 8 months of lovely type and quality, has the essentials of a very good head with correct eye colour and length of muzzle, super double coat of correct texture and a well-shaped, otter-like tail, a great showman who keeps his excellent outline in profile where he covers the ground and a true mover fore and aft, particularly good behind, one whose future I will follow with interest.

AV Toy Puppy (3):

1. Bailey’s Sagrael Who’s That Girl, 8 months Pug bitch, feminine bitch who settled better as the class went on, dark eyes, fairly cobby, scored on the move where she moved true fore and aft and very well in profile;

2. Todd-McCoid’s Rubyranian Christmas Gift, Pomeranian, compact and well-knit in her frame, well handled, not as good on the move and found the terrain a little difficult;

3. Hunt’s Moltobello Denis The Menace

AVNSC Toy Junior (2):

1. Lister’s Florita Favianna, feminine lovely quality Italian Greyhound, blue with white trim, certainly elegant and graceful in appearance, long neck, deep narrow chest, high stepping action which was particularly good in profile, should have a future;

2. Stading’s Stadmeyer Saltaire Boy, Yorkshire Terrier, just out of yearling this male was in lovely condition and presented a good overall picture of type, good moving but could have a better topline and bite.

AVNSC Toy Post Graduate (2):

1. Todd-McCoid’s Cashonleigh’s Moondancer with Rubyanlo, Pomeranian shown well by his young handler, 3 years old and in good condition, pleasing feet and compact.

AVNSC Toy Open (1):

1. Lister’s Revillo Allegro, Italian Greyhound bitch just out of puppy, fawn and white pied of lovely quality with a super overall outline, liked her head with long skull and fine muzzle, slightly arched over the loin, pleasing bone and feet, very sound on the move and looked super in profile where she was highstepping and free in front but had good power behind too, a pleasure to award her BAVNSC Toy and Toy Group 1;
