RIPON & DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY - 04/06/2023
My thanks to Ripon for the invite and appointment to judge some fabulous dogs in many breeds today, it was also a pleasure to take over the ESS and WSS on behalf of Ellen Lloyd. Sportsmanship was fantastic in most breeds and results accepted graciously with the exception of the Border Terrier ring which has already been discussed widely elsewhere. I was very grateful to Ripon for their hospitality and the way they made myself and Ethan welcome and catered for.
SPANIEL (ENGLISH SPRINGER)
P (1,0) 1 SMITH’S MELVERELY IRIDESCENT. 10m LWT Bitch. The most exquisite workings in the head, with a beautiful eye and expression, it just melts you the minute you walk to front of her. Good length of neck into a well laid shoulders and front. Super ribs, forechest and length of loin. Super tailset and carriage. Moves with true reach and drive, beautifully conditioned and muscled, an honest ESS outline that I am pleased to see continues to take top honours since I judged her. On the day she was PG1 also, which was an immense result. BOB & BP.
J (2,1) 1 RICHARDSON & TERRY RICHARDSONS DAENERY’S MOONDANCER TO CHERISHYM. A 16m LW Bitch. Fair workings in the head, feminine expression. She has a light nose which detracts from an overall picture. She has fair makings all the way through her body, and her construction is adequate however it does hinder her movement which is OK.
PG (1,1) 1. Absent
O (4,0) 1 CHANDLER’S ELAZLAN TRIBAL CRAFT. 16m BW Dog. A dog who fills a picture and is on the larger side for me. He has a good depth of forechest, good spring of rib and a strong rear end that makes him move out with drive. He is verging on coarseness in head for me, he is a little upright in front however he still manages an adequate reach. He is shown in immaculate coat, and muscled to perfection. 2 CUNLIFFE’S IR SH CH CALVDALE I SAY OF FALLENLEAF. Lovely exquisitely feminine bitch of many quality. She has a good middle piece, she was a little unsettled on the move at times today, but still managed a good reach and drive. She was close for the class win. Shown in good condition. 3. RICHARDSON & TERRY RICHARDSONS CHERISHYM DOFIDA.
