Breed: Swedish Vallhund

PGB – 1) Amon’s Pepperthyme A Star is Born – Aptly named. Very balanced bitch who is developing well. She has lovely markings, lovely eyes & ear shape and a good chest. She was excellent on the move and could not be denied the RBCC.

2) Linney’s Tanellis Bloomin Tigerlilly at Aescwine – This young lady clearly enjoys her food. She is developing well and is a happy girl. Her ears are wide set. Her bone is adequate and she has a nice coat with good markings. She moved ok.

3) Antieul, Stockbridge and Sibley’s Feurvale’s Torchwood (IMP) – This young lady is slow maturing and has fantastic pigmentation. She moves steadily and has lovely dark eye. She was a bit unsettled in the hall today and lost out in this class on maturity.

LB – 1) Hislop & Dolan’s Tanellis Colina – This is a pretty bitch who is developing still. She is good on the move and has excellent markings. She has adequate bone.

2) Zilbut & Yacomen’s Ohanaway She’s A Rebel – This bitch has a good outline and markings. She was loose on the move in front. She has a good chest and is very mature for her age. She struggled with the noise in the hall seeming a little overwhelmed. I think this was not her day as I have seen her shine since.

OB – 1) Zilbut & Yacomen’s Starvon Déjà vu – This was a bit Deja Vu for me as I have seen her before and she won the class the last time I judged. Apart from that things are very different for this bitch now. She has matured and settled. She has a good head with nice ears, lovely eye shape and a good topline. She has a lovely chest and was excellent on the move. She stepped up in the challenge to win BCC and then BOB.

2) Dodd’s CH Tanellis Bloomin Primrose – Another who struggled with the noise in the building. When settled she moved well but had a rising topline. She has good bone and markings.

3) Cameron & Wood’s CH Bowkol Akasha Fire – Great outline and lovely dark eyes. Good muscle tone and showed well. Her movement is sound in sidegait but not as good coming and going.
