My sincere thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge at this show, which had a fabulous, relaxed atmosphere, they were blessed with good weather, the rings were expansive with plenty of space ringside.

Cocker Spaniel

Puppy (3,1)

1. Bacon Timbric Doris Day 10-month-old sturdy youngster in super condition with well boned legs appealing head and expression with a kind eye, good ribs, and a good shape overall, showed very well and moved around a tricky ring with great ease. BP.

2. Sherlock Crimicar Midnght Dreamz A six-month-old who is just right for age giving away on maturity today which was mostly reflected in the coat, she was however, merry and attentive and put on a good show, scores in body which is strong and compact for one so young and sturdy bone emerging, it will be interesting to watch her progress.

Junior (1)

1. Bacon Timbric Doris Day.

Postgraduate (5,1)

1. Sherlock Crimicar Dream Lover This bitch was sporting and feminine and full of life but equally knew her job with nothing overdone, in super order with a silky coat, in a class where some had too much condition, she had a long flowing easy stride which covered the ground and just ate up the ring. In the lineup she was more determined and settled then her kennelmate and was rewarded with BOB.

2. Burton Dreamist Glitter Rock A superbly presented exhibit handled to full advantage correct ear set just unsettled on the move which cost a placing today, strong body with well sprung ribs and a short lion, had a full but not prominent eye and a moderate neck.

Open (4,1)

1.Sherlock Crimicar Just A Dream A quality exhibit with no extremes I would prefer more stop but her head was pretty with a kind full eye, good bone and body and balanced, she had the compactness I was looking for and is balanced fore and rear with good shoulders, she challenged well for BOB, but a different handler unsettled her a little and she gave way to her kennelmate. RBOB.

2. Sewell Wintonia Hidden Gem at Quattrozampe Well off for coat scores in rib and body gave a good account going around and coming and going, but was a little longer in body that 1, pleasing head and expression shown in first class order.

American Cocker Spaniel

Puppy (1)

1. Morris Norrashays Madam Cholet at Mycalleys Lovely youngster showed like a veteran free merry and sound and coped well with the conditions, lovely clean head, good eye, and correct ear set, good neck and held her shape going around, she pushed hard for BOB.

Junior (0)

Open (2,)

1. Morris Churchill Moser Dog At Mycalleys (Import) Superbly handled and presented bitch who went beautifully for her handler. Scores in body and coming and going he handled the ground conditions admirably, her performance, today was faultless and she pushed hard.

2. Morris Mycalleys China Doll This was my class winner however today she was a little too determined on the move, which was affecting her stride unfortunately, lovely size, great coat, good ribs and lovely to go over, her neck was free from throatiness and strong, tried to give her additional chances but she was feeling rather determined to do things her way which cost her a placing.

Clumber Spaniel

Puppy (1)

1. Taylor Maursett Madrigal Just write for age, a little less at ease today but started to settle as time went on, beautifully presented, lovely cost in super condition, lovely size and the most appealing head and expression complimented by a kind eye and good nostrils. Stood alone but has a bright future, I’m sure. BP.

Junior (1)

1. Taylor Maursett Masikean What a prospect this girl is my notes read ‘I loved her’ she can’t stand wrong, she is balanced fore and rear and has a lovely silhouette, with absolutely nothing over done, I preferred her length of neck, to that of her kennelmate, lovely unexaggerated head which is large and square and broad with a defined occiput, she could have been BOB but just lost out in the lineup.

Open (2,1)

1. Taylor Maursett Marnie This lady has soundness, balance, and femineity in abundance with the stoicalness one expects in this breed her temperament shone through, balanced for and rear with correct bone and a good size, she is quite the show girl, she covered the uneven ground with ease with effortless drive, would prefer a little more length of neck, to complete the picture. BOB & RBIS.
