Dogs

MPD (7,1a) 1st Park’s Kinchyle High As A Kite 8 month, black, Liked his outline when stood. Kind head which will take time to mature but he has a good length of muzzle and good eye colour. Excellent reach of neck and good front angulation. Short coupled body with good spring of rib, level topline and tailset. Good bone and feet. Well angulated hind quarters. He moved well for a baby. Correct coat, with harsh top coat. Promising young boy. BMPIS. 2nd Mallin’s Elisabetta Red Teddy 8 month, dark yellow. Kind masculine head, right for age and good eye and pigment. Strong neck. Well constructed front. Short coupled body and rib, good bone and feet. He has enough hind angulation. Excellent topline and good tail. Excellent coat and condition. He moves ok and this should tighten as he matures. 3rd Macdonald’s Darilye Dalmuir Afinmore

PD (10,3a) A very good class. 1st Digweed’s Marlyford Valentino at Willokin 11 month, black, he won this good class on his outline and balance. He has a masculine head with kind expression, good reach of neck and excellent front. Well sprung ribs and short coupled body. Level topline and tailset which he held on the move. Well angulated hind quarters. Good bone and feet. Moves very easily. 2nd Brown’s Ramsayville Revolver 10 month, black. It was a close decision between these 2 but 1 just has a better outline at the moment. He has a lovely head and eye, excellent reach of neck and correct front. He is slightly longer cast, but this does not detract from him. Well-muscled hind quarters and good angulation. He moves very freely. His coat is correct, but he wasn’t in his best jacket. 3rd Druggan’s A Sense of Pleasure’s Get Lucky

JD (11,2) 1st Cook’s Exelby Salsola Black, not the biggest of boys but very well made and has a lovely outline. Lovely kind masculine head with good eye. He is well made front and rear. Short coupled body and good spring of rib. Level topline stood and on the move. He has an excellent double coat and moves well. 2nd Druggan’s Mafia Lab’s Taboo Webster at Balladoole Stronger type than 1, but he is not over done. Kind masculine head with good pigment. When stood he has a lovely flow from his neck down to his tail. Correct front, well sprung rib and short coupled. Excellent hind quarters and very well-muscled. He moved very well. 3rd Allen & Bott’s Tessholly’s Explorer with Allenie

YD (6,1) 1st Druggan’s A Sense of Pleasure’s El Toro at Balladoole Black, this boy has matured nicely and was in fabulous coat and condition today. He has a kind head and expression with good length of muzzle. Excellent reach of neck and correct front. Level topline and tailset. Well sprung ribs and short coupled. He won this class on his excellent hind quarters and depth of 2nd thigh. He has good bone and feet all round. He moves well and has a lovely outline. He was in my final 4, but he was carrying a tad too much weight on his shoulder and this was the final decider. He a lovely boy. 2nd Douglas’ Talard Cee Three Pee Ohh Yellow. He pushed hard in this class and although a different type to 1, he has lovely outline and is very eye catching. Lovely head, with kind eye and good colour and pigment, excellent reach of neck and a good lay of shoulder and upper arm. Good spring of rib slightly longer cast than 1, but this didn’t spoil him, lovely topline that flows from his neck to tail. He has a good turn of stifle but was just lacking 2nd thigh today. He moves very freely but does not need to go too fast. He was in good condition and his coat is on its way back but was correct. 3rd Walton’s Gallybob Marmalade

MD (3) 1st Crellin’s Aalincarrey Billy Bear Black, this boy was carrying too much weight today and not helped by his big puppy coat. Strong masculine head with good eye.

He has a kind masculine head, eye ok for age and good pigment. He has an excellent reach of neck and correct front. At the moment he is a bit bottom high, but this will settle. Reasonably angulated hind quarters. He moved ok and this will tighten as he grows and matures. Good coat.

ND (3) 1st Wilson’s Stelainros Westpoint Black, lovely type who is at the in between stage! He has a lovely head and eye which will develop into a lovely expression, clean reach of neck and good front. He does have a tendency to throw his head back and this just spoils him. Short coupled body, well angulated hind quarters. He moves well but just needs a bit more time to settle. Excellent coat. 2nd Crellin’s Newhorizons Music Man Black, Masculine head, he has a clean outline when stood although I would like a better tail set. Well constructed front. He has good bone, but his feet need to tighten. Correct coat. He needs time to settle on the move.

UGD (2) 1st E. Salsola 2nd Edwards’ Kimbajak Precious Metal JW Yellow, really liked his outline when stood. He has a masculine head with good eye and expression but I just preferred 1st’s today.

He was in full coat and this just made him look a bit heavy over his front. 2nd Lesley’s Steeleigh Blue Print JW Black, with masculine head and dark eye, he has a flowing outline when stood from neck to tail, well angulated front but I would prefer slightly more brendth of chest when stood.

Masculine but kind head and expression with good balance of muzzle and skull, dark eye, strong but clean reach of neck and excellent front, he has a good length of rib which is well sprung, well angulated and muscled hind quarters, excellent coat and condition and the best otter tail of the day! On the move he just floats and is straight fore and aft on good bone and feet. He had to settle of the RCC today as he just started to lose his topline.
