Championship show

29th June 2019

Judge: Richard Bott

I would like to thank the exhibitors for such an enjoyable appointment, the entry both numerically and in quality was very pleasing. It was such a lovely atmosphere around the ring, all class results were greeted with applause and congratulations to the winners by the other exhibitors. Something that is missing in so many breeds today.

Minor Puppy

1. Pabiaga’s Cupid to Chanderhill

This black and white chap was sixth months old and very much the baby. At this stage his head is masculine and well proportioned. Short neck in to a well angulated front. Body developing well of good proportions with a level topline, would have liked a slight better croup. Quarters developing well, correct for age. Good movement on him, true on the out and back. Coat of good condition.

Puppy Dog

1. Chanderhill Cash The Cheque at Donjenki

Brown young boy with lots of promise at this stage. I like his head proportions and expression. Good through the neck and leading into well set shoulders but would have like a shade more lay back. Standing on straight, well boned legs. Short neck into a body developing well, good through the ribs and firm in topline. Correct moderate quarters well-made for his age. Moved out well in profile, just a shade close behind. Delighted to award him Best Puppy Dog and later Best Puppy in Show

2. Juncopanchitaf De Ubroque (Sp Import)

This brown dog was out of a bigger mould than the winner with a shade more length of leg. Pleasing in head and expression, short neck, would have liked more lay back in shoulder. Good straight legs. Needs to drop in to his front but has time on his side. Good through the rib, just need to firm up in topline which he should so with age. Not quite the front action on the move of the winner, coat harsh and in good condition.

Junior Dog

1. Chanderhill Cash The Cheque at Donjenki

2. Adormidera Qui Gon Gin

Pleasing outline on this black and white dog. Masculine head of good proportions, strong through the neck, well-made front with good angles. Standing on well boned legs, still to drop in to his chest but that will come as he matures. Strong in topline just a shade long. Moved out well to take this place.

3. Chanderhill Alfredo

Yearling Dog

1. Rainthyme Mirror Image of Prizelands

Black boy of good type and balance, correct in outline and very well balanced throughout, just a tad soft in topline. Lovely headpiece, good proportions and big nostrils. Well placed ears and these were used to advantage with his mischievous expression. Short, strong neck and good front assembly, straight front legs and nice tight feet. Ribs well sprung and back to a firm and proportioned loin. Good finish to croup and quarters well developed, correct coat texture and had a very good side gait, covering the ground evenly but just needed a little more enthusiasm.

2. Josalyn Roldan El Mago

Brown dog who hadn't got the ring presence of first today. Pleasing in head and expression, strong neck leading to good front assembly, well ribbed and firm loin, falls a little over his croup, developed quarters and in hard condition. Good legs and standing on neat feet. Coat of good length and had a harsh texture. Moved covering the ground would have just liked him a little tidier in front action.

3. Adormidera Qui Gon Gin

Graduate Dog

1. Toddini Viking Express

Black and White boy well up for size. I liked his head which was expressive and with good proportion. Short strong neck and well laid back shoulders, correct height to length ratio. Decent width in rib, firm through the loin. Coat in good condition, he is well-muscled and he moved out well, needs to tighten in front action to complete the picture.

Very appealing indeed and has lovely breed type. She has a very feminine head with lovely pigmentation and dark eyes, ears correctly set, good neck into well placed shoulders and straight front. Correct balance and proportions throughout. Good topline, spring of rib and firm in loin. Good rear angles. Just not as happy as she need to be in the ring today which showed in her movement.

Postgraduate Bitch

Lovely head and expression on this brown and white lady, good proportions and enough width of skull. Short strong neck and well placed shoulders, good return and straight front. Ribs springing well, firm in topline. Quarters developing well and used to advantage on the move. Still young and needing to body up a little but I'm sure a bright future is ahead. In the challenge she just came alive and was very close up for top honours, delighted to award her the RCC. If she carries on maturing like this I am sure a big green and white card will not be far away.

This lady was 11½ years young and looked fabulous for her age. Strong typical bitch of correct proportions with a lovely typical feminine head. Short neck, good overall front assembly, nice deep brisket with well sprung ribs, well boned legs & good feet, would have liked a tad more rear angulation. Really enjoying her day out as her tail never stopped wagging. Typical in profile just showing her age a bit on the move against the dog winner. Best Veteran Bitch.
