CARLUKE & DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY OPEN SHOW

SATURDAY 26TH MAY 2018

BEST IN SHOW. A lovely line up of quality dogs and I thank my fellow judges for sending them through. BIS was the Pointer I had judged earlier McGilp’s Sh Ch RIDANFLIGHT RUBY TUESDAY AT FORTHBOURNE who showed her head off all day. RBIS and SpBPIS was the young Whippet Place’s AARMINIAS LUV THE WAY YOU LIE just 9 months who could show a lot of the adults just what true symmetrical movement should look like. Masculine head without coarseness. Beautiful neck and shoulders, rise over the loin. Excellent sympathetic handling. On today’s showing a bright future awaits. BV Coutts Wire Fox Terrier Ir Ch BROCOLITIA TALK O THE NORTH looks and moves a lot younger than his age. Classic head, neck and shoulders flowing into level topline. Striding out well.

AV Imp Reg (1)

1st Gorman & Henry Ir Sh Ch PERDIZCYO ANDRES Jun CH Por Poi D Clean head and broad skull, Disappointed in bite in a gundog. Good strong neck into well laid shoulders. Short upper arm preventing adequate reach in front. Well angled rear angulation with good drive but overstepping front. Perhaps a slower trot would help.

Retriever (Golden) Puppy (9,5)

1st McDoudal RIGERIN MERRIE MELODIES AT TORCARHIAN B. 6 month well made throughout bitch with loads of potential. Excellent head with good pigment in nose and eyes. Good bite. Clean neck of good length into well laid shoulders. Good length of upper arm giving good reach in front. Level topline held on the move. Well ribbed & short coupled. Rear angulation balanced with front. Musculation in rear still to come in this baby which will tighten up rear movement.

2nd Webster TASHEEN PEPPERMINT D Masculine head though not course balanced and well chiselled. Set on to good neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Equal length upper arm set well under body. Well up to standard for 8 months. Coat flat . Would have liked to have felt more muscle on hindquarters to help rear movement.
