SPANISH WATER DOG
1st Wood PABIAGA SERGIO. Appeals in head with correct flat skull and good eye shape. Clean short neck, straight front with elbows well in. Chest well developed for age and firm body of correct ratios. Moved out well once settled on a good stride off strong hocks. Developing well in all departments, correct coat texture, a promising sound youngster. BP
1st Thompson Sh Ch PRIZELANDS FONDANT FANCY AT COOISHKA JW. A top quality young b/w bitch and I was not surprised to see she is already a Show Champion. She is so well proportioned throughout and presents a lovely outline. Elegant in head with lovely expressive eyes, good pigmentation and correct dropped ears. A woolly texture to coat, and being short at the moment showed off her correct angulation both fore and aft. She has good bone, well sprung ribs and strong firm topline which she held on the move. Moved confidently with power and style. Res BOB
2nd Kehoe JANAMORIO NORTHERN IZZY AT AGUMARINA. Attractive in head with correct parallel planes, flattish skull with correct earset. Adequate shoulder angulation, good body length and enough rear angulation. Well coated but needs to settle on the move as not concentrating today and movement was erratic.
1st Thompson’s KURLIBEARS SEPTEMBER TRUFFLE AT COOISHKA. A very soundly made bitch with good bone and well constructed in all departments. Attractive head with dark expressive eyes. Strong short neck, super front assembly with tight elbows, well developed chest and correct rear angulation. Coat of correct texture, she came into her own on the move to win the class on her sound brisk movement holding her topline well.
2nd Hodgkinson-Rutherford & Rutherford ZORRAZO COOL AS A CUCUMBER. A robust dog that presented a pleasing outline when stacked with correct angulation. Head of correct proportions, desired flat skull shape and correct stop. Strong neck firm body with level topline and good width to hindquarters, well padded feet. Not as powerful on hind movement as my winner.
3rd Wood CHANDERHILL EAGLE EYE
1st Hodgkinson SH CH ZORRAZO QUEST FOR SUCCESS (IMP HRV) JW ESP JCH HR JCH. A medium sized dog, attractive brown colour, so well balanced throughout with a great outline. Excels in head, flat skull, open nostrils and correct stop. Well developed in chest, ribs well sprung and firm level back. Hindquarters with just enough angulation and stands on round and compact feet. One I have judged before and placed highly in a group, he has matured on to make a super dog, and has a great bond with his handler. Moved with style and soundness on a brisk stride, presented in lovely condition. BOB
2nd Hodgkinson-Rutherford & Rutherford SH CH/HR CH ZORRAZO HEY THERE YOGI BEAR. An eye-catching rustic dog with attractive light coat colour. Appealing head of correct proportions, expressive eyes, well shaped ears. Excellent forehand, with good depth of brisket, muscular well developed hindquarters with good width to thigh, strong hocks and good tight feet. He is very well constructed throughout, today I preferred the purpose and animation on the move of my winner. A very worthy Show Champion of the breed.
