Thank you for your entries and accepting my placings so sportingly.
Temperament is a real problem currently, with many nervous dogs and four either growling or snapping, two of which I could not touch and were subsequently withheld from. This needs addressing and indeed today, good temperament weighed heavily in their favour. Surprised to find imperfect p/p mouths.
1st Ousebys SHINING STAR WINNING SMILE
Blk/Wh h/l of nice size with good head and plenty of furnishings. Large ears, which he could use more but well set. Good topline standing and moving which he did soundly.
Well presented and showed ok.
2nd Hamptons ANADAEIA DANCE HALL DAYS
Dark liver h/l of nice proportion leaning towards deer type. Masculine head with good earset and almond shaped eye. Ideally furnished. Needs ringcraft and confidence, but coped well .
3rd Snells ANADEIA RAINDANCE
1st 1st Payne , Dunlop & Mc Leland HABIBA BOY TROUBLE
Stunning Blue/wh h/ of super quality, type and size with lovely head and eye. Good mouth, well set and carried ears, very glamorously furnished with the finest grained skin. In the stack he is very hard to fault, with tailset and carriage spot on. Covers the ground with a good stride and an elegant look about him and only narrowly missed out on top honours as he was losing his topline a little. However, feel he will be a big winner on maturity and wish him all the best for his title, which is just around the corner I’m sure. BP
2nd Hamptons ANADEIA DANCE HALL DAYS
1st Dixon’s DEBRITA DILLIGENT
Blk /Wh h/l Ideal for size, type & balance with a nicely proportioned head and well set large ears. Well made throughout with smooth skin and glamorous furnishings, holding a lovely outline on the move. Excellent tailset and carriage on the go around where he covered the ground well. Beautifully presented and showed well enough to secure the RDCC
2nd Hampson’s ZERACHIEL MR MAJESTIC
Cream drop eared p/p of nice size with good head. Moved well with a level topline.
Just fractionally preferred his head to 3rd.
3rd boden’s INUI TAKE ME AWAY
1st Pipers BE MY DOGS TOPSAIL CODY OF ZANJERO
Really liked this liver h/l with ideal cream furnishings. Nice head with strong well set ears and correct almond shaped eye that could be a bit darker. Confident showman, lovely balance, of deer type with good legs and correct feet. Moved round the ring very well and was considered seriously in the challenge. Carries a firm level topline with excellent fine grained skin.
2nd Bodens LUNACREST AMONG THE SHOOTING STARS
Blk/wh h/l typical head with dark eye and large flared ears. Level topline standing and on the move, where he steps out quite well. Well presented and handled to get the best out of him, just losing out to 1 on front, which could be straighter.
3rd Peppets BARON WINNING SMILE FOR ZANJERO
1st Oliver’s YNCHREENOO BOAYL FAHRANE AT SARELIDAN JW
Blue/Wh h/l of absolute true type leaning towards deer type. Ideally furnished with a proper crested head for proportion and masculine enough without being coarse. Eye could be a shade darker to appear black but good shape and well set. Ears are large strong with ideal fringe and correctly set and used well. Great , medium long body with soft skin, level topline and perfectly carried tail. Side gait is sound and elegant and true going away, but could just be a bit cleaner in front coming on. However, he ticked so many boxes and had a confident temperament that tipped the scales in his favour.
Handler needs to get some practice, but dog has enough to score him his title, good luck. DCC
2nd Dowsetts WINTERKLOUD GINGERBREAD BY TTESWOOD
Really nice Cobby liver h/l with glamorous cream furnishings and excellent skin. Eyes a bit light and round in an otherwise nice head, topped with strong large ears. Super for size and moved out well, felt he could have been made more of with more presentation, still a nice one.
3rd Parker’s PINOT GRIGIO GATTACA
1st Barkers CHEESWOOD SHIMMERING MOON
Cream/ Wh erect eared p/p with lovely head and strong ears. Very good coat presentation, went round with a good stride carrying a level topline and better tailset and carriage than 2. Showed very well and had the best temperament of the day, well done!
2nd Kempster & Rees & Wi JAMMINGS EXCLUSIVE TO OOLAGHA
Erect eared p/p with exquisite head and eye and perfect presentation of a true veil coat. Good body level topline, went round happily and soundly, just not quite the extension of 1, still a a nice one and another steady temperament.
3rd Hunter BRYELIS THE RINGMASTER JW
1st Dowsett CH DOONBEG BETE NOIR VIA TTESWOOD
Beautiful Blk/ Wh erect eared p/p with nicely proportioned , masculine head, dark eye and strong, fringed ears that were well set and used. Very sound with great reach and drive, carrying a level topline with good tailset and carriage, just a little too much of him all through for me, but is still a worthy champion. BV
2nd Masters ESQUIMAUX SKIN DEEP
Liver/Wh h/l who was not engaged at all and hence lost his topline and ear carriage as a result. Good skin, ideally furnished and well presented with typical head, cheeks could be leaner but correct proportions. Nice for size and leaning towards Cobby type.
MPB Disappointed by temperament in this class with the exception of the winner.
1st Kempster & Rees PARCAUWEN LUNAR ECLIPSE WITH OOLAGHA
Cream erect eared p/p with such a pretty, feminine head and eye. Ears , without fringe, perfectly correct, although I prefer with. Lovely for size and presentation was first class on this glamorous veil coat. Moved out well and gave a good account of herself for one so young, with a steady temperament.
1st Skelton, Santoriello & Santor JEAN DARK PUFFIBLY MAYBE AT LUBADUSI
Beautiful cream erect eared p/p with nice head and strong well set fringed ears.
Excellent presentation of her veil coat, covering a firm body of good length and well set and carried tail. Strong rear and driving action with a confident temperament secured her RBCC. I’m sure there will be more to come. Lovey bitch, good luck with her.
1st Hinton CHEESWOOD MOONLIGHT DREAM
Grey/Wh erect eared p/p with beautiful head and strong ears well set and used. Almond shaped eye that could be darker but didn’t spoil her expression. Moved out well carrying a level topline under her super veil coat , which was expertly presented.
2nd John CHEESWOOD NAUGHTY BUT NICE
Blk/Wh spotted h/l who is a real deer type and spot on for size. Pretty feminine head, again eye could be darker and another with good topline on the move, which she did well, just not quite as co- operative as 1 . Excellent skin and ideal furnishings.
3rd Lane TRANSYLVANIA SASIMA AT KONISHIKI
1st Lane TRANSYLVANIA SASIMA AT KONISHIKI
Dark liver h/l with pretty head whose ears could’ve been better. Dark eye, good for size with soft skin and ideal furnishings, she was just a little untidy in her underline today. Moves very well and carries a good topline and tail carriage. Well presented and shown.
2nd Mckenzie’s & Muldoon GARNOX FLOWER POWER VON QUESHIAN
Grey/ Wh erect eared p/p with pretty head and large ears . Good topline, both standing and moving , which she does well, just couldn’t match one for tail length or carriage. Well presented and handled with one of the better temperaments of the day.
3rd Letos KIWANGO FREE THINKER
1st Laws and Crummery STAGEDOOR SUGAR PUFF
Much to like on this Blk/Wh erect eared p/p who comes alive on the move where she takes a really good stride and holds a super topline and outline. She is quality all through with with a balanced head and good shaped eye, that could be darker.
Would like a better finish to her tail and a little less of her, but was not easily discounted in the challenge. First class coat and presentation.
2nd Dales SIGYNS LADY ROWENA
Liver/Wh h/l of good size and type with nicely proportioned head and balanced body. Holds a level topline and well carried tail on the move. Went round very soundly and showed well.
3rd Mcguigan & Blackwell DOUCIAS TOO CUTE TO SCARE AT ANNAMAC
1st Payne & Dunlop CH HABIBA TRUE BLUE
Dark liver h/l with very glamorous cream furnishings on a super smooth skin with fabulous presentation. A very good , proper ‘hairless’ mouth, a rarity! Large flared ears which she used well when she was free stood. Feminine head and dark eye set on. Good neck and fit body of good length. Well set tail and carried perfectly on the move where she scored over the dog, being super sound, elegant and eye catching. Would like a fraction more leg for perfection, but she is so close to what I wanted, she couldn’t be denied. CC & BOB
2nd Maignes AM CH HALCYON LADY LUCK
Grey/Wh erect eared p/p with a glamorous veil coat, expertly presented. Pretty head and well used ears, great for size and carries a good topline. Moved out soundly, even with a change of handler.
1st Mcguigan & Blackwells ANNAMAC FAIRY TAIL Dark liver h/l Wh top size for me, but quality. Glamorous furnishings and smooth skin on a firm body with balanced head and strong ears. Out moved two behind in this class but was withdrawn from the challenge.
2nd Cole’s DOUCAIS ABOVE & BEYOND Bl/Wh smaller than 1 and less glamorous but perfectly correct. Good skin, front and topline, just not matching one on the move behind. Super mouth, steady temperament.
