Best Special Beginner :

Class 564 PD (5 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1568 Bond, Dr Kirsten & Zdunic Sinkovik, Mrs Sabina Kan Trace Emit Remmus (Imp) What a cracking puppy this is! He is impressive on the stack with his well balanced square outline and legs slightly longer than his depth. He carries a strong level topline which is slightly high set at the withers and falls off slightly to his muscular croup. He stands on sturdy straight forearms, has well laid shoulders, a good bend of stifle with angulation slightly greater than in front. His head is masculine, correctly proportioned and well furnished. His woolly brown coat has the desired rather rough feel to it and maintains the rustic look. He really ups his game on the move and looks like he could go all day. BPIB and BD.

2nd: 1572 Blunden, Mrs Jannette Mikette Aye Aye Captain. Doesn’t have the confidence of the winner but he is of good type with a shortish neck, good forehand and tailset. His eyes are a lovely shape with an intelligent expression. Coat coming along nicely.

3rd: 1565 Bell, Mr David John Il Granaio Dei Malatesta Dick Dastardly Of Pendleb

Res: 1575 Mckay, Dr Fiona Emmroche Erminio

VHC: 1583 Snowdon, Mrs C & Nelson, Miss Julie Rozebottel's Mario Tronti

Class 565 JD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1579 Smith, Mrs Jacqueline Pablo At Panrico (Imp Serb) He was untidy in front movement and needs more hind angulation but is still a decent sort. His head is well balanced with slightly divergent planes and an alert expression. He is well boned, compact and strong in body, carries a good topline and uses his tail well. Good curl to his coat.

Class 566 PGD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1566 Benelli, Mrs Monica Il Granaio dei Malatesta Rublo. He is terrific on the move and carries a dense woolly white coat with tight curls. He has a typical head and eye, is balanced in outline but could do with more hind angulation behind.

Class 567 OD (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1562 & Young & Duigenan, Mr & Mrs M Mangham Foogel Roberto at Onyxro (imp Fin)(AZ1). He is a smart and typey dog of a nice size and shape. He is rather narrow in chest, strongly boned, has depth and good ribbing and short wide loins. He has such a kind expression in his dark almost round eyes and clearly shows his lively and affectionate nature on the move. Whilst his upper thighs are long and well muscled he lacks bend of stifle which cost him in the challenge. RBD.

2nd: 1585 Whittick, Mr Simon & Whittick, Mrs Barbara Arcticbreeze Turbulence at Allsong. He doesn’t have the ribs of the winner but has a narrow front, shortish neck, well balanced head, high set withers, level topline and good tail set.

3rd: 1578 Nelson, Miss Julie Mizani Dioro over Savio



Class 570 PB (4 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 1571 Blunden, Mrs Jannette Mikette Autumnal Equinox. She has a pretty head, good length of leg, is well angulated front and back with a level topline and moves on a free stride. Her coat is rather loose at this age and I thought she looked a touch elegant rather than rustic.

2nd: 1573 Laroche, Mrs Emma-Jane Emmroche Emiliana. She is a cracking mover and shows power, reach and drive. Good curl in her coat but she didn’t have the ribs of the winner. Close call.

3rd: 1580 Smith, Mrs Jacqueline Il Granaio Dei Malatesta Donna Martin (Imp) It

Class 571 JB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1586 Whittick, Mr Simon & Whittick, Mrs Barbara Allsong Nuova Luna. What a fidget she is on the stack, she did her very best to throw it away but in the challenge she was more settled and moved showing a clean pair of heels to take RBB. Her head proportions are classic with soft dark eyes and finishes with a large protruding nose. She is well angulated with slightly more angulation behind and has thin upright rear pasterns. Her white coat is woolly with thick curl and she is clearly of a happy disposition.

Class 572 PGB (6 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1570 Gilder, Mr J & Blunden, Miss L Mikette Maledictus. She was the best balanced in the class as far as leg length goes. Feminine head with short foreface and divergent planes, well set ears, shortish neck, good forechest. Croup tends to level and so her tailset is higher than I would like. A good moving bitch with a superb crisp coat.

2nd: 1582 Snowdon, Mrs C Leyther Summer Rona. She has a coat of tight crisp curls which won her her place here. Her head is moderately broad in skull with divergent planes and large open nostrils. Her angulation is good with slightly more behind. Moved well.

3rd: 1576 Mort, Mrs Lisa Arcticbreeze Truth or Dare

Res: 1574 Mackay, Mrs Jackie & Mackay, Mr Alexander & Laroch Hunting Track Curly Wurly at Emmroche (Imp Serb)

VHC: 1587 Wilson, Miss Vanessa Emmroche Dancer

Class 573 OB (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 1577 Mort, Mrs Lisa Arcticbreeze One And Only. She walked into the ring as if to say ‘I am the one and only, who’s second?’ So who was I to deny her? She is a lovely size, squarely built, sturdy and robust with correct leg to depth ratio. Her head is simply lovely and she has such a wonderful expression in her fairly large dark eyes. I found her so true to type and rustic looking with the best of coats that evenly follows the line of her body. There is nothing sculpted about her. She moves with precision and drive showing a clean pair of heels as she goes away and uses her tail well. She was expertly and quietly handled. It was my pleasure to make her BB and BOB.

2nd: 1584 Whittick, Mr Simon & Whittick, Mrs Barbara Moonreed Warbler at Allsong. She is slightly longer cast than the winner but still presents a good outline. Her head proportions are typical, shortish strong neck, narrow front, good ribs and strong quarters. Another very good coat. Super temperament.

Class 574 VB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 1569 Gilder, Mr J & Blunden, Miss L Fullforge Free Horizons Con Mikette Sh.CM. Squarely built with good leg length, narrow front, deep brisket and balanced head with divergent planes. Moderate angles and good length of lower thigh. Thin and upright rear pasterns. Good woolly jacket. Moves well. BV and Veteran Group 3.

2nd: 1581 Snowdon, Mrs C Gaesten Lucky Luna. What a fabulous mover this 10 year old is. She doesn’t have the quarters of the winner and tends to stack bum high but she has good overall type and a tight coat.
