A quality entry awaited me at East of England and very grateful to the exhibitors for their entries, a lovely atmosphere ringside and not many absentees. Just a reminder to the exhibitors in our breed that whilst judges may forgive lack of coat, which is perfectly natural and normal at this time of year, when a dog loses coat they also lose condition. There were some borderline exhibits in terms of weight and we must endeavour to be mindful. As always a lot of dogs with some maturing to do and given this is a slow maturing breed they just need time to finish the overall picture. Whilst blessed with the weather, it was very warm for some exhibits who didn't perform as well as their construction would suggest.
1. Simms’ Over The Rainbow Des Sarmentins (imp FRA). 7 months and medium
plus bone, good croup and well presented, moved well in profile and parallel away
although ‘crabbing’ slightly, very well muscled.
1. Sargent’s Keriquel Orinoco. Pleasing head, good croup and shoulder. Medium
bone and good reach on the move. Nicely conditioned although out of coat.
Preferred overall balance to 2 nd .
2. Seaman’s Trailhunters Toruk. Up on legs at the minute and going through
‘rangy teenager’ stage already. Pleasing head, still some growing to do in this
slow maturing breed.
1. Seaman’s Oerik Ragnar of Voykan Wakanda Kennel. Better balance at the
moment than 2 nd but currently still a ‘rangy teenager’, out of coat but moved
better in profile than 2.
2. Smith’s Snoqualmie Captain Morgan at Arcticswirl. Pleasing head and
expression, still has the ungainly movement of a youngster and slightly squarer
in proportions than 1.
1. Webb’s Rock Me Amadeus. Well muscled and slightly longer in back than I
would prefer, in coat and well presented and handled. Moved nicely in profile.
2. Williams’ Salazka’s Newt Scamander. Still a ‘yearling’, acted up but nice foxy
head, good feet and muscle, just not as ‘together’ as 1 st which can be expected at this age.
3. Wright’s Snowrun Echo.
1. Robertson’s Chatanika’s Dragonkin. Out of coat but construction is there,
well balanced and good proportions, slightly feminine head at this stage, would
prefer more condition.
2. Snelson’s Niflheim Blade. Over standard and well turned out, still needs to
come together but good reach on the move.
1. Hart’s Zawkkast’s Scrappy. Not handled to advantage but excellent make and
shape. Good shoulder, croup and carrying good muscle with nice medium bone.
2. Aguilera’s Sulaco Hudson. Understated but covered ground well and shown in
nice muscled condition.
3. Thomas’ Eversepp Maine.
1. Leich/Koops’ Forstal’s Inola. Well balanced and in good muscled condition, fit
feet and covered ground well.
2. Wynne’s Mydisa Golden Ticket. Nice dog, just lacked the shoulder of 1 st ,
good proportions and maturing nicely.
3. Hart’s Arctictrek’s Ralph Revels at Zawkkast.
1. Biddlecombe’s Ch. Korsvig’s Cooper at Tsaritsa. Well balanced and in
proportion, correct coat and excellent in profile. Pleasing head and well
muscled, very much on his toes and would benefit from firmer handling, nice
ground covering movement, DCC & BOB.
2. Ashcroft’s Smile n’ Wave for Zanjelic. Well handled and presented, nicely
balanced and in good muscled condition, moved well just wasn’t as animated as 1 st,
3. Grisbrooke’s Ch. Azgard Glock.
1. Seward’s Elleonia Silver Bullet. Well balanced and in proportion, easy ground
covering gait and in well muscled condition, BV.
2. Platt’s Rykalov’s Sparks at Wightflight. Good shoulder and reach, just lost
out on movement to 1 st .
3. Thomas’ Teakans Jet Force. 13 year old, well constructed, sadly a little too
hot for him today.
1. Webb’s Rock Me Amadeus. Previous class winner.
2. Snelson’s Niflheim Gambit. Good bone and foxy head, moderate condition
and glimpses of nice profile movement, handler needs more practise.
1. Bailey’s Artictrail Baby Cyrus. Stood alone but worthy of 1 st , nicely balanced,
moderate bone, good coat and croup, nice in profile.
1. Aguilera’s Keriquel Ginevra at Sulaco. Stood alone and again worthy of 1 st ,
nice bone, well balanced, good reach on the move and nice tight feet, BP.
1. Smith’s Snoqualmie Taliska Skye at Arcticswirl. Still very rangy, good
shoulder and reach on the move, still very much a junior, pretty head, out of
coat but still muscled and in condition.
2. Norley’s Articskies Bold as Brass with Snodiva. Presented and handled well,
preferred more feminine head of 1 st , would prefer more muscle.
1. Aguilera’s Seppstasja’s Jet at Sulaco. Just carrying better condition than 1 st ,
balanced, medium bone, still very much a youngster.
2. Brown’s Polarcreek Taiya JW. Again nicely constructed, just lacked the
condition of 1 st , although marginal.
1. Platt’s Coldspell’s Blue Steel in Wightflight. Won on profile movement,
carrying good weight and nicely balanced, covered ground well.
2. Quinton’s Legworx Neoteric. Good shoulder and proportions, moved well, just
lost out to the profile movement of 1 st . Showed a lot of promise.
1. Quinton’s Legworx Primordial. Feminine head and expression. Good shoulder
and balance. Nice muscle and moved well in profile with an easy pick up.
2. Leich/Koops’ Forstal’s Tsula. Very well muscled and balanced. Correct coat
and good bone. Covered ground well, just preferred the overall picture of 1 st .
3. Seaman’s Sasoolka Baobhan Sith.
1. Wynne’s Mydisa Golden Night Fury. Well balanced and in proportion, carrying
good muscle and well turned out, pretty head and moved very well in profile,
stood out for me and ticked all the right boxes, moved effortlessly, just lost
her enthusiasm on the challenge for BOB, BCC
2. Robertson’s Chatanika’s Racers Ripley. Well constructed and good
proportions, whilst in good condition, completely out of coat but her
construction could not be ignored for the RBCC.

coat and nice muscled condition, easy gait, well presented and handled with nice
