Breed: Retriever (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling)


10TH JULY 2022

Retriever (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling)

I wish to express my thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge Braccos, Tollers and SWD without CCs. The entries and quality in all three breeds were exceptional. A huge thank you must go to my very hardworking stewards Karl Gawthorpe and Janet Kay who kept the rings running very efficiently to ensure that we were finished in plenty of time for the group. They stewarded in this ring from 9:00 am to 14:30 without a break.

The exhibitors and audience were of the best I have ever experienced. They applauded every class and congratulated each other.

I was delighted with my entry and was pleased to see that my BD, RBD, BB & RBD are all related.

Puppy Dog

Entries: 4 Absentees: 0

1ST 5599 - Acadiabyrne Tibetan Coral (Miss J Salmon). He is a nice size, has a handsome wedge shaped head, straight and strong forelegs, good spring of rib and an alert and friendly attitude. Moved very well with good tail carriage. BPIB.

2ND 5612 - Tollisty Moët En Chandon (Miss A Dorrell). Strong and straight in front, well muscled neck, decent shoulders. Longer cast than the winner so not as compact in appearance. Handsome enough head but I preferred that of the winner. Moved OK.

Junior Dog

Entries: 3 Absentees: 1

1ST 5598 - Arthundur Dream Come True (Mrs A Ryder). I loved his head and markings. His well set ears enhance his soft expression. He has good bone, neat feet and moves very well indeed.

2ND 5579 - Tollelkin Dream Harbour (Miss M L Elkin). Not as good in front as the winner but he is a pleasing type and displayed such a friendly temperament.

Post Graduate Dog

1ST 5580 - Cretshengan Torran Loch JW (ai) (Mr P G & Mrs J Fielder). Such a good dog with a fabulous clean cut head and melting expression. He is well ribbed back, strong in loin and has very well turned stifles. Powerful mover. RBD.

2ND 5577 - Tollelkin Caife Americano Sgwc (Miss M L Elkin). Close up to the winner but doesn’t quite have the hind movement. Great head shape, strong neck and deep brisket.

Open Dog

Entries: 6 Absentees: 0

1ST 5619 - Eusanit Proper Job (Mrs T M & Miss S Westwood). Excellent type, well balanced with a strong topline, compact and well muscled and a great tail action. Clean cut head, eyes set well apart with alert expression, well laid shoulders and wide quarters. I loved his springy movement. BD.

2ND 5591 - Tivalake Let's Misbehave JW (Ms D & Miss T Newson). Unlucky to come up against the winner as he is a very good type. He holds a strong topline and has wide quarters. I preferred the expression of the winner but nevertheless he is a handsome chap.

3RD 5589 - Riverwatcher Paluktak (Mr A & Miss A Limerick & O’sullivan)

Veteran Dog

Entries: 4 Absentees: 1

1ST 5607 - Sh Ch Erikachen Conaire at Tollisty JW ShCM ShCEx VW (Miss H Strevens). A grand chap, well made with plenty of bone and substance. Balanced head, well laid shoulders, good ribbing and well muscled behind. He moved very well in this class but when it came to best veteran I felt he was flagging a little.

2ND 5597 - Danehaven Roscoe (Mr N W & Mrs R A Steer). Not in his best coat but well made all through, pleasant head and stands on neat feet.

Puppy Bitch

1ST 5616 - Cfyre's High Tea at Tollpepper (Imp Can) NAF (Mr A J & Mrs J M Trickett). She had the best head and movement in this class. Feminine head of good shape. Alert and attentive just like the standard calls for. I liked her very much indeed for her overall soundness and breed type.

2ND 5610 - Tollisty Blow Your Mind at Citanabel (Mr C G & Mrs S Lashly). Longer cast than the winner and I felt her ears could have been a tad smaller. Pretty wedge shaped head. Was a bit close behind on the move.

Junior Bitch

Entries: 3 Absentees: 1

Post Graduate Bitch

Entries: 9 Absentees: 0

1ST 5569 - Eusanit Lily The Pink (Mrs T Burland). I was quite enchanted by this one and found her very appealing indeed. She is a lovely size, has a very pretty wedge shaped head, straight front and excellent tail carriage. Calmly and efficiently handled. RBB.

2ND 5585 - Katmistsky's Ann Again (Miss Gosnell). Doesn’t have the balance of the winner but she has a very nice head and moves well enough. Straight front, not quite the shoulder placement of the winner, well muscled.

Limit Bitch

Entries: 4 Absentees: 0

1ST 5608 - Tivalake Anything Goes at Tollisty JW (Mrs K Smith). I liked her for size and overall balance. Good in front and good angulation fore and aft. Carried her head and tail beautifully on the move. Presented in very good coat.

2ND 5606 - Tivalake Crystal Ball at Rosettia JW Rl2 (Mrs V & Miss L Sharpe). Litter sister to the winner and very similar. Both have very pretty heads and intelligent expressions, strong toplines and tight feet.

3RD 5613 - Gingafing Aint No Way (Miss R Tester)

Open Bitch

Entries: 7 Absentees: 0

A very good class of quality girls.

1ST 5603 - Sh Ch Eusanit Naughty But Nice for Croftwell JW (Mrs S A & Mrs S J Savory & Moult). Cracking bitch who oozes breed type and is a top quality exhibit. She is compact and well muscled, deep in brisket, has well sprung ribs and excellent turn of stifle. She is so well balanced and has the prettiest of heads with well set eyes of excellent shape and the friendliest expression. She is in excellent coat and condition, has good markings and is jaunty on the move carrying her head almost level with her back and waving her tail behind her. She was exactly what I was looking for. BB & stormed it for BOB.

2ND 5618 - Eusanit Ever Fallen Love (Mrs T M & Miss S Westwood). Close up. She looks so very alert on the stack. Plenty of heart and lung room. Moved with drive. Preferred the ear set of the winner.

Veteran Bitch

Entries: 3 Absentees: 1

1ST 5592 - Sh Ch Tivalake More Than Wishes (Ms D & Miss T Newson). Quality bitch who was so very jaunty on the move. Typical head with soft expression and well set ears. Good forehand and well muscled quarters. In the challenge for BVIB she stepped up a gear to take it.

2ND 5596 - Danehaven Fenelon (Miss C Powley). Another good type, just not in her best coat today.
