SATURDAY 29TH JUNE 2019

Many thanks to the society for the honour to judge at your well run show and once again, I was delighted with the quality of dogs in Scotland. A very big thank you to my hard working steward.

GREAT DANE

Post-Graduate 7 (5 abs)

1. Holland’s Axeford Arizona of Dramalex

I really liked this promising 14 month old fawn bitch. She has a pleasing, well proportioned head, good eye. She is well balanced with moderate front and rear angulation. Good straight bone, just would prefer tighter feet. She moved well in all directions.

2. McCulloch’s Allours Draco at Kindalladane

A tall upstanding 18 month old fawn boy, who was shown in great muscular condition. Sadly not concentrating today and gave his handler a hard time. He moved OK, but one that definitely would benefit from a bigger ring.

Open 8 (3 abs)

1. Young, Cunningham, Gilbert & Robertson’s Ch. Gretadane I’m In Bother with Illuvadane JW ShCM. This upstanding male fawn impressed me as soon as he entered the ring and did not disappoint when I went over him. He was shown in hard muscular condition and certainly has the required strength throughout, but not at all coarse. His head is well proportioned and has excellent eyes with a great expression. He has lovely straight front legs with great bone and has the most wonderful tight feet, truly cat-like. He is well balanced front and rear and his movement reflects his construction. He moved with reach and drive even in the relatively small ring. I was pleased to award him Best of Breed and then put in a faultless performance in the Group and was delighted to award him Group 1 in strong competition. Well done. He represented the Group very well in the challenge for Best in Show.

2. Burns, McGuiness & Nelson McGuiness’s Dinahatron Rags to Riches.

I really liked this young fawn bitch, who was very close up to the winner. She presents a very well-balanced picture and has the most delightful head and expression. Great neck and width of chest. She was very impressive on the move and I am sure she must have a very bright future.

3. McGill’s Clannalba Eile Braigh Mharr for Karnduke

4. Holland’s Socar Nosey Parker at Dramalex

BULLMASTIFF

Open 3 (1 abs)

1. Taylor’s Cairnmount Gabriella at Karismar

This young bitch has a strong, but feminine head with good width to skull. She has strength throughout with a broad deep chest and good bone throughout. She is moderately angled front and rear and has a strong short back and held her topline well when stood and on the move. She moved soundly in all directions. Pleased to award her Best of Breed.

2. Taggart’s Tarbhore Limited Edition

This mature male is certainly powerfully built throughout with great strength of head, although would prefer less wrinkle. He has a broad deep chest and is well angulated front and rear. He moved well in front, but a little untidy behind today.

NEWFOUNDLAND

Open 2 (1 abs)

1. Duff’s King of Helluland My Queen at Titanbears JW, ShCM, ShCEx

This young female was shown in fantastic condition and has a lot of good breed qualities. She has a feminine head and good eyes with a delightful expression. She has good width to chest and back and well angled front and rear. I would just prefer a little more leg length to give a more balanced outline. She moves well in all directions and was very deserving of her Best of Breed and Working Group 4 in strong competition. Well done.

ROTTWEILER

Post-Graduate 4 (1 abs)

1. Nicol & Rushforth’s Jacraila Viking Warrior

When you judge, you are always hoping for one of those WOW moments and I had certainly had this with this 8 month old male puppy. My notes say “stunning” and he sure is and what a very bright future this young man must surely have! He just screams breed type and has the strength and power I associate with this breed. He has the most wonderful head and expression and a delightful temperament. He is so well balanced throughout and moved around the ring with great reach and drive. There is absolutely nothing I would change at this stage and I was pleased to award him Best Puppy, Best of Breed, Adult Working Group 2 and Working Puppy Group 1. He continued to impress and I was delighted to see him awarded Best Puppy in Show. Many congratulations to his owners and I will follow his progress with great interest. Well done.

2. Shepherd’s Upmont Jazzy Jazz

This is a very pleasing bitch who has many good qualities. She scores highly in her head properties and has a super expression. She is well proportioned and moderately angled front and rear. Moved well in all directions.

3. Wilson’s Seittor Highland Fantasy with Inveralicia

Open 3 (1 abs)

1. Hislop’s Westlodge Five Star JW, ShCM

This 3 year old male is another super example of this delightful breed and has great strength throughout. He was shown in hard muscular condition. He is so well balanced and has a pleasing head and expression. He has a broad deep chest and has a super strong topline. He certainly moved very well in all directions. Just had to give way for top honours to the very exciting puppy on the day.

2. Baillie & Shaw’s Stairvale Frazer JW

This young male is another pleasing dog, who has a super head and expression. He is well angulated front and rear and moved extremely well. Just not got the topline of the winner on the day.

DOBERMANN

Post-Graduate 5 (2 abs)

1. Cairns’ Avector Teraline Do Russia at Lamarg

Really liked this medium sized 12 month old male, who has the required elegance throughout. He has a clean, well proportioned head with a super alert expression. He is so well balanced with well laid back shoulders and moderate rear angulation. He has a strong topline, which he held on the move. Moved very soundly in all directions.

2. Todd’s Holyhell’s Hary’s Boy for Toffarbach (imp Serbia)

A much heavier male, who I would not want any bigger. He has a pleasing head and expression. Not quite the front angulation of the winner, but does move well in all directions.

3. Henderson’s Priscilla De Voss

Open (4 )

1. Todd’s Holyhell’s Serbian Night Fever at Toffarbach JW (imp Serbia)

This fabulous young male caught my eye when he entered the ring and did not disappoint. He is the required size and well balanced throughout, with no exaggeration whatsoever. He has a delightful head with everything in proportion with an alert expression. He is well angulated front and rear and shown in hard muscular condition. He came into his own on the move and had great reach and drive. I was pleased to award him Best of Breed and Working Group 3 in very strong competition. Well done.

2. Henderson’s Priscilla De Voss

3rd in previous class. Moderate throughout and presents a well-balanced outline, when the handler does not overstretch him on the stand. He has a pleasing head and expression. In good muscular condition and moved well in all directions.

3. Robson’s Barron William De Porcha.

This is a very promising puppy, who I think was probably at his and his handler’s first show today. He has many good qualities and has a well-proportioned head. He is very well balanced and has well laid-back shoulders and moderate rear angulation. When he settled, he showed he could move extremely well. His owner needs to relax and practice to get the best from this lovely puppy and I am sure they will have great fun in the future. Best Puppy in Breed and Puppy Group 2.

4. Cairn’s Lamarg Espresso

LEONBERGER

Open (1)

1. Bell & Newland’s Debbollinby Kruz Control for Wasserhund

Although stood alone, this young male was very worthy of his Best of Breed. He is upstanding and totally masculine and loved his size and substance. He has the most delightful head and expression. He is well balanced throughout and shown in super condition. He is moderately angled front and rear. He was just a little down on his pasterns and loose in front on the move, but moved very well behind. Best of Breed.

BOXER

Open (1)

1. Lafferty’s Jackintabox Harlequin

Another who stood alone, but again a very worthy Best of Breed. This male has a super typical head, which is very balanced and has a great expression.

He moved well in all directions and pushed hard for a group placing. Best of Breed.

1. Rodger’s Jedisibes Dark Expresso

Another, who stood alone, but worthy of Best of Breed. A mature male who has a typical head with good ear placement and has an alert expression. Moderate front and rear angulation and has sufficient body and is quite well balanced. Moved OK in all directions. Best of Breed.

AVNSC WORKING

Open (3)

1. Nicol’s Kontaktas Scooter to Jacraila ShCM

This is a very impressive upstanding mature Russian Black Terrier, who has great ring presence. He has the typical square outline and is well balanced. He has great bone and shown in hard muscular condition. He has a strong masculine head and great pigment and good eyes. Shown in great coat and presented and handled well. Moved well in all directions. Best AVNSC and pushed hard for a place in the very strong Working Group.

A feminine Canadian Eskimo Dog, who has a well-proportioned typical head with good ears and eyes and an alert expression. Moderately angled front and rear and has a deep broad chest and well off for body and shown in good muscular condition. Moved well in all directions.

3. Norris’s Elenius Life Genri

An 11 month old Bernese Mountain Dog who has a lot of good breed points and scored highly in his head properties and expression. Has great bone throughout and has moderate front and rear angulation. At present carrying a tad too much weight, which did affect his movement somewhat on the day, which is a shame. Best AVNSC Puppy and Working Puppy Group 3.

4. Norris’s Elenius Life Genri (Bernese Mountain Dog)

3. Walker & Muir’s Douglasdale Dream Island

Open 2 (1 abs)

1. Gibb’s Snikkles Bluebeard at Pirateer JW ShCM

Although this wonderful mature male stood alone, he was completely worthy of his first place and eventual Best of Breed.

He has well laid back shoulders and well angulated rear. He has great bone and muscle tone throughout and loved his super feet. This dog comes into his own on the move and moved with great reach and drive and looked like he could go all day.

SAMOYED

Open 3 (2 abs)

1. Divers & Divers’ Nikara Dancing by the Light at Murmansk ShCM

Although alone, was well deserving of 1st place and Best of Breed. A super mature male, who is a great example of this delightful breed. He is well balanced throughout and has strength, but no sign of coarseness. His head is powerful and of good shape with the required pigmentation and the typical smiling expression. He was shown in great condition and moved well. Pushed very hard for a group placement in a very strong Pastoral Group.

FINNISH LAPPHUND

Open 3 (1 abs)

1. Meikle, Meikle & Henderson’s Vis Et Gloria Notte at Lintukoto

Very pleasing young bitch with good strength to head with a well defined stop. Just would have preferred a slightly less round eye. She is well balanced and has good bone.

2. Matheson’s Thistleglen Belladonna

Another nice example of this breed, who unfortunately was not making the best of herself on the day to show off her obvious qualities. Pleasing head and overall proportions and when settled, moved soundly.

GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG

Open 4 (2 abs)

1. Smith’s Echosands Shimmer N’ Gold

This 11 month bitch has a lot of positive breed qualities and should have a bright future. She scores highly on her width and strength throughout. Her front angulation is OK and she has good bone and strong pasterns. She is moderately angled behind and her hocks are strong. She holds a good shape on the stack and on the move and does move very soundly in all directions. Best of Breed, Best Puppy and Pastoral Puppy Group 3. Well done

2. Caldwell’s Ylanris Paloma

I actually preferred the head and darker eye on this one month younger bitch puppy, but currently she is a little narrow throughout and does need to strengthen front and rear, but she has time on her side. She certainly needs a bigger ring to get into her stride.

BRIARD

Open (3)

1. Murray-Walker’s Lascaux Neola of Walkerbrae ShCM

What a super class of this delightful breed and all had lovely qualities and all presented in great condition. On the day, this veteran black girl beat off the younger competition and completely enchanted me. She is in the most wonderful condition and an absolute credit to her owner. She filled my eye with her shape and balance throughout. She has very typical head properties and a delightful expression. She is well angulated front and rear and has a really strong topline, which she holds so well standing and on the move. She is very sound in all directions and looks like she could do the job the breed was bred for. She was well deserving of the Best of Breed, Pastoral Group 2 and Best Pastoral Veteran. Many congratulations.

Although stood alone, he was very worthy of his first place and Best of Breed. I was very impressed with this mature masculine boy, who has the most delightful temperament. He was shown in super condition with a profuse coat, but there is certainly a lot of dog under the coat! He has a strong head of good proportions. He is well balanced throughout. He moved extremely well with the required effortless gait and was very sound behind. He pushed very hard for a group placing in the very strong Pastoral Group.

3. Whitelaw’s Katiedale Kingsman

AVNSC PASTORAL

Open 5 (2 abs)

1. Sellars & Sellars’ Mybeards Hylos

For a judge to have two WOW moments when they are judging is fantastic and for them to both refer to puppies is very exciting for the future. When this most stunning Powlish Lowland Sheepdog male puppy entered the ring, he immediately captivated me and just oozed quality. He is so well balanced for such a baby and has the most delightful head and expression. He has great proportions with super front and rear angulation. He is well off for bone throughout and already gives the impression of strength and has good muscle tone. He is a steady showman for one so young and moved with great purpose and drive. He was presented in super condition and surely must have a very bright future. I will follow his progress with great interest. I was delighted to award him Best AVNSC, Adult Pastoral Group 3 and Puppy Group 1. Many congratulations.

2. McTaggart’s Ir. Ch. Sangosands Seashell

What a super Australian Shepherd who was shown in the most fantastic condition and was just pipped to top honours by the briard on the day. It was hard to believe she was 9 years old and has lovely balance throughout. Very pleasing head and expression. She excels in movement in profile, but was just a bit untidy in front action on the day. Certainly a great credit to her owner.
