Dunstable & DCS 2nd April 2018 Judge: Miss L Tarabad (Khatibi) It’s always a pleasure to attend this well organised, friendly show both as an exhibitor and a judge. This time it was as a judge and I thoroughly enjoyed my day and had some lovely dogs entered under me. GBGV Junior (3) 1.

Nicely balanced outline with good substance and bone, strong neck into well laid shoulders and straight front, good chest and ribbing and correctly angulated rear. Noble head with large eyes, long, low set ears, squarely finished muzzle of good length with defined stop and domed skull. Moved out well with good reach and drive maintaining a firm topline and correctly carried tail at all times. Presented in good coat and condition and was handled to an advantage. Awarded her BOB and was delighted to see her take Group 4 in a well filled group, well done. 2. Knowles’s Reggaedog Frodo (Imp Svk) 9month old male of a good size with good body and bone.

Gorgeous little 6 month baby, lovely size and substance for her age and carrying a good rough jacket presented beautifully. Would like a touch more neck and a little more angulation in front but held a lovely topline and has good rear angulation. Such a sweet face with lovely eyes, ears and mouth.

Sweet 4 year bitch who couldn’t match the balance or finish of 1. Feminine with nice eyes, slightly domed skull, defined stop and good muzzle length and finish. Compact shape with good topline and tail. Moved freely with proud head carriage, didn’t have the reach or drive of 1. AVNSC Hound Junior (6,1) 1. Collins & Dunhill-Hall’s Fantasa Dallas Maverick.

Nice outline with good substance, short legs, good clearance, nicely angulated front and rear with level topline and tail carried correctly. Domed head with long, low set ears, dark eyes and big black nose. Moved well when he wanted to, the smelly equestrian centre floor did tend to be rather distracting for a scent hound!!

Correctly shaped head with dark expressive eyes, high set ears, strong jaw and good mouth. Moved out with a typical action holding her outline firm at all times. Presented in beautiful condition with coat gleaming. 2. Brockhurst’s Sarabellew Troublemaker.(Pug) Nice little 3 yr old bitch who was a little unsettled with a change of handler but her nice breed type, sound movement and attractive head qualities deservedly won her this place. 3. Masters’ Esquimaux Skin Deep. ( Chinese Crested) 4 year old h/l dog with masculine head. Nicely constructed with good bone and substance, well sprung ribs and good topline.

(Pomeranian) 8 month old baby who gave a very good account of herself even though looked every bit the baby in this lineup. Very compact with short neck and back, high set tail and moderately angulated rear. Sweet head and expression with lovely dark eyes, small ears and neatly finished muzzle. Moved with a brisk, accurate action and was handled to an advantage. Toy Puppy Group 1. Maskell’s Kazkell Milo’s Dream. (Papillon) Sweet tri bitch who showed her socks off. Small and dainty with pretty head and expression, correctly set mobile ears, dark eyes and fine muzzle. Good neck, shoulders, spring of rib and tail carriage. Moved soundly with a free, confident gait. 2. Santoriello’s Collypins Tell Tallulah for Pinicio. (Min Pin) 11month b/t bitch who was determined to play her handler up so really didn’t make the most of herself! Her sound construction and nice breed type was obvious and when she had her mind on the job she moved well. 3. Ciumakovaite’s Baltijos Triumfas Angela Crème Elite. (Pomeranian) 4. Collins’ Vivaprima Ferrari Black Star (Imp Lva). (Russian Toy)I believe this was the first of the breed to gain a group place in the country having only been able to compete for a couple of days! Small and square with fine bone, good length of leg, correct underline and moderately angulated rear. Pretty head with dark eyes, large ears, definite stop and short, pointed muzzle. Unfortunately the cold equestrian centre didn’t really suit this sweet baby but once she got going she moved well with the correct tail carriage.
