Kooikerhondje

It is such a shame that more exhibits do not enter at this show due to location and time of year. I was sorry to hear that one exhibitor was ill and wish her a swift recovery. Those exhibits that were present were all of the best quality and are a testament to the careful breeding which has taken place over the past few years. Such a shame this breed do not have CCs as some of those present today would, by now, have multiple CCs to their names

Open Dog 2:1

1ST , BD, BOS Miss S E Williams – Cairnbraid Onwaba Lukimbi Of Gladsheim (Imp Bel)

4 year old with correct skull to muzzle ratio. Deep brown, almond shaped eyes with correct pigmentation. Moderate neck into well laid shoulders, elbows close to body as required. Strong, level back with topline maintained on the move. Excellent rear angulations with well let down hocks. Tail well set. Moved soundly and happily

Junior Bitch 1:0

1st Miss A Mar-Gerrison – Gladsheim Willow At Valkira

12 month very feminine. Lovely head and very sweet expression, dark almond shaped eyes with correct pigmentation. Moderate neck into well laid shoulders, elbows close to body as required. Tail well set. Moved happily but just needs to settle a little more to make the most

Post Grad Bitch 3:1

1st, RBB Miss S E Williams – Gladsheim Arunika

2 year old in excellent coat. Feminine with a lovely expression. Correct skull to muzzle ratio. Moderate neck into well laid shoulders, elbows close to body as required.

Open Bitch 2:1

1st, BB, BOB Miss S E Williams – Daniella Vom Thyrowberg To Gladsheim (Imp Deu) ShCM

7 year old in excellent condition. Dam of the RBB, this girl moves so soundly and happily with a tail that never stops. Head of excellent proportions, with the loveliest of expressions from dark, almond shaped eyes with correct pigmentation. Moderate neck into well laid shoulders with elbows close to body as required. Ideal body length with excellent rear angulations. So pleased to be able to award her BOB today. I do hope she continues to show in this manner and should easily attain her VW at Open Shows
