Saturday 8th September 2018.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Judge. Sandra Coles ( Twyforde).
Thank you to the officers and committee of North Devon Canine Society for inviting me to judge at their well run show and the hospitality shown. To my steward on the day and the exhibitors for entering their dogs and the sportsmanship shown. Also for the lovely gift with my kennel affix, which now takes pride of place at home.
1. Lewis’ Carleeto Stardust. Ten month old Black and Tan dog. Just loved him and the way he has that edge of showmanship. Round dark eyes and good nose pigment. Correct scissor bite. Good layback to shoulder. Neck moderate and slightly arched. Level top line, standing and on the move. Correct construction fore and behind and therefore moved with drive and in parallel both going and coming back. Best Puppy and pleased for his Puppy GP 4.
2. De Walton’s Underknoll Rose Gold. Seven months old Ruby bitch. Rich red silky coat. Not quite as mature as 1, but another that excelled in movement and construction. Large dark round eyes and good nose pigment. Level top line and correct tail set. Good reach of neck which added to a lovely outline on the move.
3. Hawkins’ Lexody’s Apocalyptic
Special Yearling. 7 (4)
1. Webster’s Culverwood I had a Dream. Blenheim dog not long out of puppy. Quality youngster and maturing well. Beautifully presented, showing well broken rich chestnut markings on pearly white background. Head almost flat between ears and correct shallow stop. Correct scissor bite and good dark eye and nose pigment. Good angles front and rear. So sound and free on the move keeping top line whilst moving and standing.
2. Lewis’ Carleeto Satine. Well balanced little Black and Tan bitch puppy. Raven black silky coat with correct tan markings. Beaten by maturity in this class. Correct scissor bite. Large dark eyes and dark nose pigment. Short-coupled with good spring of rib. Level top line on the move. Good construction fore and behind and moved parallel going and coming back.
Just preferred the showmanship of her brother for best puppy.
3. De Walton’s Underknoll Love Story.
Post Graduate. 8 (4)
1. Thompson’s Culverwood I Did it My Way. Blenheim dog. Litter brother to the winner in Special Yearling. Very similar in make-up. Well broken markings on a pearl white background. Even markings on head with desired lozenge. Correct scissor bite and beautiful large round dark eyes. Head almost flat between ears and shallow stop. Good nose pigment. Correct construction fore and behind. Moved freely and with drive.
2. Lewis’ Carleeto French Fancy. Seven months Black and Tan bitch puppy. Loved her size and balance. Correct scissor bite and eye and nose pigment dark. Shoulders well laid back, level top line and moved in parallel going and coming back.
3. Webster’s Featherfalls Secret Sunset
Open Dog. 6 (2)
1. Norris’ Cinderaic Are you Kidding Criscan. Three year old Blenheim dog. Beautifully presented and in full coat today. Silky well broken, pearl white coat. Beautiful head piece with the most correct large dark, round, eyes yet giving that lovely soft expression. Correct scissor bite. Good angulations front and rear and moved well maintaining top line on the move. RBOB.
2. Randle’s Bretam Sole Survivor. Seven year old ruby dog. Good rich red colour. Holding on to a good coat. Large round dark eyes and good nose pigment. Construction good and moved in parallel when shown on a looser lead.
3. Thompson’s Karaime’s Dream Believer for Culverwood.
Open Bitch. 10 (2)
1. Walton’s Underknoll Kiki. Two year old Blenheim bitch. Such a sound little girl. Nicely broken silky coat on pearl white background. Correct mouth and dark eye and nose pigment. Head almost flat between ears and shallow stop with correct length to muzzle. Well laid back shoulders, level top line and well turned stifles. Superb parallel movement going and coming back. So true. Maintaining level top line on the move. BOB
2. Yeates’ Underknoll Amelia with Merryanna. Two year old tricolour bitch. I liked this little tricolour very much and it was a difficult decision between 1 and 2. Movement was a little closer behind than one and she was not quite as animated in the ring as 1. Beautiful well broken silky coat. Correct tan. Head nearly flat between ears and correct shallow stop. Lovely fill under eyes and the most amazing melting expression. Correct scissor bite. Good angulations front and rear. Maintained top line standing and on the move.
3. Faulkner’s Faulklea Crystal Shimmer
