Thank you to the officers and committee for inviting me to judge your Club Open Show. Also thank you to those who entered and stayed after the Champ Show to allow me to judge your dogs, it really is appreciated after such a long day.

VD (3, 2abs)

1st Borne’s Dortmund Dodging Bullets - Lovely sized male overall condition is good for his 10 ½ years. Pleasing head in proportion with medium ears set well, lovely dark eye and he has kept fill to cheek. Slightly shorter neck set on a balanced front with a nice upper arm. Good topline for his age blends onto well balanced rear angles with a good tail set. Moved well with his handler around the large ring. I was more than happy to award him BVD and BVIS.

MPD (0, 1abs)

PD (1)

1st Allen & Steels Upend Edward - 10mth young male who looks to have had a growth spurt and was slightly leggy on the day. Head in proportion nice eyes and well-set ears, slightly steep in stop. Balanced within himself and used what he had on the move, just needs time to broaden, settle into himself and mature. BPD BOSPIS

JD (0, 2abs)

YD (1)

1st Clark’s Dortmund Dizzy Rascal - 22mths, lovely head, correct ear set and carriage, with a nice fill, strength in muzzle, dark mouth, complimented with a dark eye. Firm top line, nice croup. Stands on lovely compact feet. In front I would like a little bit better lay of shoulder to enable him to have that bit more reach on the move. Rear angles are good with nice development of thigh muscle. Markings are lovely with a good depth of colour. Presented in good condition.

PGD (3)

1st Cocks’ Jaqary Blaze of Glory - 19mth medium sized robust male with good bone. Lovely head, with nice fill, dark almond shaped eyes, correct carriage and size of ears which lay close to his well-developed cheek. Well put together, good lay of shoulder, with a nice return where elbows are well let down, standing on strong compact feet, his upper thigh is muscular and broad and with a good bend of stifle, strength is evident in his second thigh. Observing from behind hocks are strong. Moved extremely well in all directions, using his angles to cover the ground efficiently. RBD

2nd Kitchenside’s Jaegerot Dream Lover 3yr old, A nice male presented in lovely condition and rich tan markings. Head of correct proportions, ears of correct size and when used carried them correctly, a little round in eye. Firm topline, well developed rib cage, slightly long cast. Would benefit from a better lay of shoulder and upper arm as it causes him to be a tad wide when moving, however he has plenty of rear angulation.

3rd Eynott’s Jezeve Perfect Storm At Bohannons

LD (1, 0abs)

1st Byrne’s Maraj Moon 2 ½ yrs, a balanced male, head has a few folds to his cheek, but skull has moderate wrinkle, good eye shape and colour, medium ears carried well, muscular neck, stood straight in front onto lovely compact feet, overall condition is good, would like a darker tan, developed ribcage, good tail, a little rounded in top line, but moved sound in all directions.

OD (4, 2abs)

1st Bateson & Hoole’s CH Upmont Al Capone – 3 ½ yr male whom I have judged before, and now with those extra months on his back, the added body has done him justice. He is my sort of male, stocky and robust, and presented in good condition, with rich colour throughout. Good head piece, broad skull, correct ear, strong muzzle and a lovely eye. Muscular neck, onto a good front, to be picky I’d like a slightly better lay of shoulder, but he has enough to enable him to move with good reach, straight in front and finished with nice tight feet. Like his depth of chest, and spring of rib, which has matured well, strong top line, which is held on the move. Well-developed hind quarters, where muscular development is easy to see, finished off with strength in hock. Enjoyed watching him use the big ring today, where he put on a good performance. BD and later BIS

2nd Trueman & Brownridge’s Steigen Nevada Mit Jaegerot 4 ½ yr male of good size. Lovely condition and rich in colour. Head is off good size and in keep with his overall size, medium ears carried well, with a slightly round but dark eye, I’d like a little more fill to cheek. Nice length of neck, front is ok although a little long in upper arm, stands on good feet. Mature in overall body, depth and spring of rib is pleasing, plenty of rear angles.

VB (0)

MPB (4, 1abs)

1st Bryant’s Panelma Hedgeingmybet - At just 6mths, with good substance. She has a very attractive head with everything proportioned well at this point in time, I would like a darker eye, but this can deepen with age. Front is developing well as is her chest, nice top line onto a good croup with good tail set and carriage. Nicely balanced rear angles which allowed her to drive well on the move, where she also demonstrated good reach. For one so young she was sound, and was pleased to award her BPB and then later BPIS

2nd Coleman’s Botlierskop Goldne Ord For Tollelite 7 ½ mth taller and finer youngster than first. Smaller in head, but in keep with her overall body, good ear set and carriage, dark eye of good shape, quite well balanced in front and rear, and with a nice top line she moves steady whilst holding her shape for one so young.

3rd James & Thompson’s Bamabel Fabolous

PB (0)

JB (6, 2 abs)

1st Monk’s Olearia Queen Of Hearts -13mth a bitch that is very much together and well-conditioned throughout for her age, lovely attractive head with nice eyes, strength in muzzle, good width of skull complimented with ears that are carried well to enhance her head. Medium length of neck onto a good lay of shoulder, would like a slightly better return of upper arm, good top line and for age she has a mature body, strength in loin onto a nice croup and rear angles of correct proportions, where thickness of thigh can be seen and continues through to her second thing and hock. Stands on tight feet. Moved well in all directions.

2nd Docherty & Dunhill-Hall’s Fantasa Daddy’s Girl - 16 mth compact bitch a slightly bit more substance than first. Nice head with good proportions, but slightly steep in stop, she does benefit from a nice eye, and good ear set, with strength to muzzle. Carrying a few rolls over shoulders, better angles in rear than front, in profile top line is level but can bounce on the move, hopefully in time this will firm up. Good croup and nice tail set.

3rd Trowbridge’s Fantasa Delorean

YB (1)

1st Allen’s Jodipas Valen Time (AI) JW - 18mth bitch of good bone and size, nice head with lovely dark almond shaped eyes, development to cheek, broad muzzle, good width to skull with moderate wrinkle, enhanced with ears that are of medium size and carried close to cheek. Good markings rich in colour, and over all in good condition. Front is made up of a good upper arm but lay of shoulder could be a bit better. Topline is firming up, good tail set and carriage, rear angles are balanced with a good bend to stifle, and strong rear hocks. Sound on the move, driving well from behind.

PGB (2)

1st Plimmer’s Victorem My Funny Valentine – At nearly 2 yrs old Medium sized bitch with bone and substance to match. Liked the strength in her head, lovely width of skull, enhanced with a good ear, slight wrinkle when attentive, dark eye, good fill to cheek, broad muzzle with lovely nose and large nostrils. In profile her top line is very level and firm. I would prefer her to be a little bit longer in first thigh to allow her to drive through that bit more, but she does move well, this is me being picky. A nice balanced front gives her good reach, stands straight in front onto compact feet. Tail carriage could be better. Good markings with depth of tan, presented in great condition.

2nd Burnett’s Nakota Nanna – 2 ½ yr a finer bitch than first place, she is well balanced in front and rear angulation, so moves well keeping her shape, but lacked the reach and drive as 1st. Lovely level top line, croup and tail set and carriage. She has a nice head, which is in keep with her overall body size, pleasing expression, where she uses her well-set ears correctly, and finished with a medium eye. Loved her rich tan markings. Well turned out.

LB (8, 2abs)

1st Plimmer’s Jaegerot Rockin Robin – 6yr mature bitch, of good size and bone. I liked the steady movement of this bitch, and I kept an eye on this in the challenge where she pushed hard for top honours. A pleasing head, broad skull with moderate wrinkle finished with good ears carried well and held close to cheek, nice fill to cheek, broad and strength to muzzle, neck is muscular, and blends well onto a good lay of shoulder, and with her upper arm being of correct length and angle, the return to elbow is good, this enables her to reach well on the move. Body is broad and deep, with a good undercarriage, rear angles match her front, but she doesn’t always show what she has on the stand, but it is on the move that this is observed. Finished with correct feet, and strength in hock.

2nd Broadbank’s Nyander Never Say Die – 2 ½ yr another nice bitch of similar size to first. Head is in correct size and proportion to her body, not quite the expression of first, muscular neck of medium length onto we well put together front, nice angle to pastern, good angles to rear, but a little more rounded in croup which spoils her top line, particularly on the move. Moved sound in all directions, presented in super condition with rich markings.

OB (5, 1 abs)

1st Richards’ CH Hanbar Enigma At Ruiz – 3 yr bitch, a nicely balanced bitch who presents a good picture in profile, where her overall construction and balance can be seen. Head is proportioned correctly with enough expression, ears a little on the larger side, strength to muzzle and finished with a dark eye. Muscular neck, onto a well put together front, blends so well onto a firm top line, which is held firm at all times, strength in loin, with a lovely undercarriage. Croup is good, her first thigh well developed with evident muscle, with a good bend to stifle and second though also showing strength. Strength also can be seen in her hocks. Movement is so sound, and effortless, definitely one that could work all day. Pleased to award her BB and RBIS

2nd Jones and Monk’s Westfalen Love By Design With Olearia – Just over 2yr old, smaller bitch than first, but one that catches your eye. Really liked her expression, a lovely feminine head, correct eye shape and colour, medium well-set ears which enhances her expression, broad muzzle, with a correct stop and nice fill to cheek. Pleasing front, but would benefit from a better return of upper arm, to give that extra reach on the move. Standing on good feet. A good firm top line, and good undercarriage, with strength in loin, onto a well moulded croup, ample rear angulation, which gave her good drive. Good condition and correct markings. She showed well in the challenge when called back in and was awarded RBB
