29th December 2018

Lhasa Apso

It was a real personnel disappointment that, due to circumstances beyond my control, many exhibits missed their classes due to a change in Hall and ring, hence the volume of absentees from a fabulous entry.

Puppy 8,6

1. Lewis’s Deelayne Jay Walker. Cream male, he has size preference. Liked his head proportions and substance. Good bite, level back excellent ribcage. Tail perhaps a touch flatter. A happy and extrovert boy with lots of time on his side. BP

2. Ward’s Jaydeish Angel Eyes. Nicely balanced, super length of neck. Attractive expression. Tail well set and carried with enough lift. Not quite the rear drive or forehand extension of 1.

Junior 5,4

1. Scales’s Zentarr Osbourne. Gold male. Liked his size and shape. Masculine head, dark eye and ex reverse scissor bite. Well put together. Well ribbed back, good angulation and well-muscled, excellent tailset and a level topline. Moved well but not striding out today. Beautifully presented.

Open 6,3

1. Anderson’s Zentarr Sapphire. A beautifully coated bitch of the right size. Moderately narrow skull, exquisite head and expression but without exaggeration, once into her stride she really moves. Presentation and coat texture was exemplary. BOB & G2

2. Holland & Lewis’s Deelayne El Conquistador. Masculine but not overdone. Another with a super head & expression, a lovely dog to go over. Nicely balanced and constructed throughout as evidenced on the move. Correct for size & substance.
