CHICHESTER AND DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY OPEN SHOW 27/1/19

BEST IN SHOW.

From a very strong line-up of outstanding dogs, BEST IN SHOW went to a most exciting Junior Standard Wire-Haired Dachshund ALLFREYS HELENA. Having judged her in the breed, I was delighted that she was sent back to me by the Group judge. She has the strongest top-line, a lovely head and eye and wonderful flow of neck into well-placed shoulders, a superb temperament and the most accurate and easy ground covering action. She never ever stopped showing herself to maximum advantage and could not be denied the top spot in excellent company. I shall watch her exciting future career with anticipation.

Another outstanding youngster was Reserve BIS, the Pointer, PYTCHLEY CHASING THE DREAM FOR HOOKWOOD. I was pleased to see how he has matured on all the right lines, since awarding him BPIS as a raw baby. Handled to maximum advantage, he, like the Std Wire, flows from nose to tail and moves like a dream in all directions. I am sure he too will have a very bright future.

I would like to make special mention of the very strong contenders in the line-up, the Dobermann MANZART VOGUE JW ShCM and the E.T.T. CH WITCHSTONE TOMMY HAWK AT RICHPIN JW, both of who were unlucky to meet the BIS and Res BIS on such good form.

A big thank you to my stewards who were outstanding.

BEST PUPPY IN SHOW

Another very exciting competition of future stars with a wonderful baby Kerry Blue Terrier taking the top spot, KEBULAK GOOD GIRL GONE BAD, at her very first show. Quite a find here, she has the most beautiful feminine, long and lean head, the best of outlines and is the most eye-catching of accurate movers, with amazingly free and positive side-gait for one so young. I predict a very bright future here!

Reserve Best Puppy In Show and pushing her all the way was a dog with the most captivating head that I have seen for an absolute age, that I had found to win the Puppy stakes earlier in the day, and again I was delighted to have him sent back to me by Toy Group judge. It was the young English Toy Terrier, WITCHSTONE RAINDANCE AVEC RICHPIN. I now see he is a repeat mating of the ETT in the BIS line-up, and I think, that with maturity this youngster may well surpass his Champion kennel mate. He has everything in the right place, and I must mention his wonderful ears and mesmerising expression. He just needs to mature on and strengthen to fully complete the picture. I really did like him.

GORDON SETTERS

JUNIOR (4,1)

1. HERNWOOD JACK O’LANTERN BY RACKENS, a clear winner and an impressive youngster. A masculine and balanced head without coarseness, a good flowing outline with long and well-angulated forehand and strong top-line. He has excellent quarters and really used them to drive with real propulsion and with the correct rear width, so badly lacking on so many that I have judged in this charming breed. An easy BOB and one for the future.

2. LOCKSHEATH BLACK ICE. A raw baby who when examined has lots to like. He is strong in head but makes a good outline if not over-stretched. On the move he showed accuracy and some style. BPIB.

3. LOCKSHEATH PRINCESS TIANA.

WIRE-HAIRED DACHSHUNDS

JUNIOR (4)

1. ALLFREYS HELENA, BOB, GROUP ONE AND BEST IN SHOW.

2. WEINACHT LARCH, BPIB. A lot of dog at just 6 months, but he’s ultra sound on the move with good body proportions, good bone and a very strong top-line.

3. SLAINTEMHATH FISH’S FUGAZI

POST GRAD (1)

1. KENTIXEN ABIES GRANDIS. A heavily built male who was strong and positive in front, if a touch un-co-ordinated behind. He was carrying too much weight today which affected his outline. He has a fantastic quality jacket.

OPEN (4)

1. TENDROW ELBERTA ShCM. I thought that she was long enough, but saying that was well-ribbed back with the perfect croup and tail carriage with lovely feet and bone. She was sound enough on the move once she was over her initial reticence.

2. BOLORIA’S TRICK OR TREAT JW. A good type and in very good coat, with a classic head and lovely bone. I just felt that she feel away slightly at the coup which spoils her outline.

3. BOLRIA’S CADBURY’S SURPRISE.

MINI-SMOOTH DACHSHUNDS.

PUPPY (4.2)

1. TRAGEEDA TEA BAG. A beautiful headed baby with a correct front and lovely feet. She has good flow in outline and drove away well from muscled quarters showing accuracy and reach in front. BPIB

2. PENNYDACH MYSTIQUE. I didn’t think that she could quite match the head, front nor confidence of the winner today. She has very good depth and is well-ribbed with a strong croup and perfect tail-set.

JUNIOR (2)

1. ROYAL MAPLE FIDDLE STICKS. A very typey and quality male, who was just a bit too ‘windy’ today. He never really settled into himself which was a pity as there were glimpses of excellence especially on the move.

2. PENNYDACH MYSTIQUE

POST GRAD (4)

1. ROYAL MAPLE EVIL EDNA. This very typey bitch won this class on the move, showing real animation and accuracy holding a strong top-line. In the challenge, she was again, like the Junior winner, a little unsure of herself and subsequently in the challenge paid the price, but I liked her a lot.

2. DEERCROFT DAYBREAK. Another very good one here, who I felt had one of the best heads of the day. Solid and well-constructed throughout, she just lacked the ‘oomph’ of the winner on the move, but was very close up.

3. ARCHIDAX BETTY BOOP

OPEN (4)

1. ARCHIDAX BONNEVILLE. At 8 years old, this bitch is in outstanding condition. She has the sweetest of heads, a good flow in outline and a strong top-line, perfect top-line and feet. Bold and courageous she moved like a dream and in the challenge could simply not be denied! BOB.

2. DEERCROFT SUMMER SERENADE JW. A great head type here again from this breeder with a significantly made body with lots to like. I just felt she wasn’t quite as accurate going as the winner.

3. ROYAL MAPLE DAPHNE BLAKE

MINI-WIRE DAHCSHUNDS

JUNIOR (2)

1. WESTWILLOW TOP GEAR. A lovely type with a super head, bone and coat. Ok for top-line at this age and just a touch proud of his tail, but once he matures and settles will do well. BOB & BPIB.

2. TOMACULUM MOLLYFYE. Very raw youngster, feminine and sound on the move, but just not quite matching the breed type, coat and condition of the winner today.

POST GRAD (3)

1. BYABYE BRILLARE WITH ARCHIUDAX JW. A different type here, but the best dentition and top-line of the class. Good for action, she just needs a bit more body condition.

2. BELDREW FLORA AT AVON. Good for head, coat and feet, just not quite the top-line of the winner but sound enough going and coming.

3. MACHUSIA MICHAEL MOSLEY.

A.V. RARE BREEDS (5,2)

  1. UNFORGETTABLY KISSING ME SOFTLY AT KARIWRIGHT, German Pinscher. A raw youngster with a good outline, a sound a steady mover who has a clean head and keen expression with correct body proportions and good tail-set and erect carriage.

2. GAESTEN TATLER’S TEXXA, Lagotto Romagnolo. Very raw, but showing good balance, she was a touch hesitant and uncertain which showed in her movement and spoils her action.

3. JAVA LE COUP DE COEUR DES FRINGANTS COMPLICES FALKOR, German Pinscher.

A.V. MINOR PUPPY (29)

One of the very best classes that I have judged for an age, full of future stars, I made a large short-list of exciting puppies.

1. DEJARE DREAM ON. Whippet. An outstanding example, such breed type and so accurate on the move. I had no clue that it was her litter brother in second spot, but they both show excellent and correct side-gait with good reach and effortless ground cover. I felt that this bitch was just that little bit more mature and accurate. She was a real pleasure to judge.

2. DEJARE FOLLOW THAT DREAM. Brother to the winner with the very best of angles in front, a long and well-angulated upper arm allowing free and easy side-gait. Another super and graceful outline and a very promising future prospect here too.

3. AWBROOKSKY OUT OF BOUNDS, very raw, but the most tantalising head and expression, I felt duty bound to critique this equally exciting youngster. So correct for size, he was unlucky to meet two such good and slightly more mature Whippets.

A.V. PUPPY (32)

1. WITCHSTONE RAINDANCE AVEC RICHPIN, English Toy Terrier.RES BPIS

2. BONMAC JACKANORY, Boxer. A bitch with a cracking head, good outline and driving action, who was unlucky to meet the winner and some other exciting pups in the final competition. I liked her a lot.

3.BRACCORIANS MEANT TO BE WITH PICCORINO, Bracco Italiano, another good puppy here.

A.V. POST GRADUATE (28)

1. SPUFFING TANQUERAY, English Springer. Good for make and shape, well bodied and conditioned and a balanced head, which perhaps needs a touch more femininity but she has a kind expression. She moved width the correct width behind and extension in front action, accurate coming and going.

2. ERINNIS MIGNONETTE, Whippet. This was a lovely stylish side-gaiting bitch with a good flowing and balanced outline. She moved ok on the up and down.

3. BALGAY KITANG PO, Tibetan Spaniel

A.V. LIMIT (16)

1. WYEAFON PERCIVAL, Australian Terrier. A lovely headed male and a beautiful rich colour too. Put down to perfection, he’s in tip-top condition, he has good front angles, moved Ok going away and showed some extension in front holding a strong top-line and good tail-set and carriage. He’s a very sound and honest dog who impressed me.

2. LINKENLEES LAURIANA, Beagle. A sweet headed girl with a strongly made body, excellent top-line and tail-set. She moved well but was just a touch ‘pre-occupied’ with the world and needed to concentrate a touch more on the job in hand, but she too appealed immensely.

3. TIVALAKE ANYTHING GOES AT TOLLISTY. NSDTR.

A.V OPEN (15)

1. JADOREMY THUNDER BOLT ZUSE ShCM. Shih Tzu. He’s a sturdily made dog in superb coat with a masculine and balanced head. I liked his outgoing personality and movement and he held a very strong outline.

2. SIMBERGER RED HOT. Leonberger. A fantastic moving bitch who is balanced in outline with a good body and a firm top-line too. I just felt I would like a touch more work to her head.

3. HOLBAM CELTIC KATE ShCM. Irish Terrier.

A.V. VETERAN (36)

This was a truly fantastic class of Veterans which was a pleasure and honour to judge.

1. CH ZENTAUR TEE TEA EFFEN JW ShCM, Newfoundland. So well-balanced, in excellent coat and body condition with a cracking head and expression, she moved like a trouper and held a perfect outline. I really liked her a lot.

2. CH/BER CH ULMARRA RTROPICAL ICE AT WINTON, Saluki. Another cracker who moves like a youngster. Refined and elegant she presents a stylish and graceful outline.

3. SH CH MOSSBURN EVA MINDFOOL JW ShCM. Golden Retriever, completing a trio of wonderful Veterans.
