Sutton Coldfield & District Canine Association

Sutton Coldfield & DCA – Open show 24th February 2018

Critique for Schipperkes

Thank you to Sutton Coldfield & DCA for this invitation. A really nice entry with only one absentee. Rather a ‘family affair’ - quality was high and exhibits and exhibitors delightful. Thrilled to hear later that my BOB won the Utility Group and BPIB was Puppy Group 3. Thank you to my great stewards.

Puppy (1)

1. Manners’ Chadbower Nevaeh Lahetti. Lovely 10 mo puppy bitch, developing nicely. Pretty feminine head with good ‘foxy’ expression; short neck, nicely angulated front, compact body and sufficient bone. Good quality double coat. Moved well with good side gait and parallel out and back. BP

Post Graduate (2)

1. Moore & Nock’s Ristine Lunar Eclipse for Blitzstan. Junior bitch, won here on her movement and slightly more compact outline. Liked her good breadth of chest, short back and well-developed rear. Moved out briskly.

2. Massey’s Ristine Tweedledee. Handsome boy with a lovely head, well shaped ears, flat skull and good eye shape giving great expression. Great quality double coat covering a slightly longer frame. Moved well.

Open Dog (5,1) A really nice class of quality dogs, each with strong virtues and at different stages of development.

1. Rollinson’s Fandal’s Un Amor For Chadbower (Imp Fin). Super young male with handsome head and expression, good outline, good bone and quality double coat. While not yet fully mature, he displays lovely breed type and is a joy to watch on the move. Couldn’t deny him the class and BOB.

2. Moore & Nock’s Ch Chadbower Finlay for Blitzstan. My only cream – and a real cracker. At 3 years, this boy is more the finished article, with lovely outline including rounded rump and ‘guinea pig’ rear! Abundant, good quality jacket. For me he was just carrying a little extra weight and was not as brisk on the move as 1. RBOB

3. Manners’ Komargo’s Crazy Diamond at Roopec.

4. Massey’s Ch Ristine Jack Black

Open Bitch (1)

1. Rollinson’s Chadbower Islay Skye. 2 yo bitch. Really liked her feminine head and typical foxy expression. Slightly off-square, but good front angulation and breadth of chest, short loin; quality double coat. Very sound, brisk movement.
