Thank you to all the
exhibitors for a lovely entry both numerically and in quality. I was
particularly impressed with the depth of quality in the breed today
making them such a pleasure to judge. The quality of the puppy classes
is a credit to the breeders and shows that the breed is in good hands.
It was also nice to see some of the youngsters I judged before now they
are maturing and fulfilling their potential. My apologies for not
staying for the group but we were urgently called away.
Puppy Dog (2,0)
Gibson’s Belleville Noite Preta At Majesixs. 9mth with a nice
outline and good size. Correct head proportions. Dark eye and correct
bite. Good bone and feet. Well made fore and aft with good turn of
stifle. Nice light loose coat. Very steady on the move with good rear
Guarda de Noite at Ricci. Litter brother to 1. Slightly smaller but
equally well made. Lighter in eye but better rear end. Was more
interested in the smells on the ground and gave his handler a hard time
on the move which made his movement difficult to assess.
Post Graduate Dog
Auldhelm Absolutelys. A very nice 2yr young man who is coming on nicely
since I last judged him. Super head with good proportions, dark eye and
broad nose. Well laid shoulders, well muscled, very nice rear end. Good
bone and feet. Correct tail set and carriage. Lovely mover which is what
won him the class. Well handled.
Stevens’ Cartmel's Brando. At 18mths this ‘young pretender’ pushed 1 all
the way. Another lovely head with dark eye. Well made with good lay of
shoulder. Handler needs to ensure he gets the most out of him on the
stand as he tends to straighten his stifle when stacked. Not quite as
positive on the move as the winner.
3rd Spencer’s Islekeepers
Reddin & Bussell’s Rarjo For Your Eyes Only. Another close call
with 2 super dogs that again were separated by movement. Judged
this boy before in PG. Liked him then, like him now. Lovely
outline, correct head with good planes and proportions and dark
eye. Well laid shoulders & well muscled throughout. Broad rear.
Powerful mover and just a little more ‘fluid’ than 2 which won
him the class.
Sword’s Traclem Kind Of Magic. Another very nice boy. 4yrs with nice
head and dark eye. Good outline, short strong neck, well laid shoulders
lovely rear with good tailset. Just not as positive on the move as the
Johns & Dearing’s Ch Gemson Orpheus At Proform. Heading up a
class of 3 very nice dogs. Super head and skull, nice dark eye,
broad nostrils. Short strong neck to well laid shoulders and
deep chest. Good bone and feet. Well muscled throughout. Good
width over rear. Lovely free powerful mover. In good coat.
Judged him before where he didn’t perform in the challenge but
today he kept showing and moving to win a thoroughly deserved
CC & BOB.
Reddin, & Bussell’s Ch Rarjo Scouting For Girls. Another super boy with
a lovely broad, well proportioned head with dark eye and wide nose. Well
laid shoulders over deep ribs, lovely rear end, well muscled. Another
good mover just not as smooth as the winner in the class. Moved better
in the challenge to take the RCC
3rd McGill’s Ch Rarjo
Revolution At Winterkloud
Melfield Chasing Diamonds. Heading up a class of 5 very nice
girls. Just 6 mths and looking lovely. Super head with nice
eye. Compact and well made body with good lay of shoulder and a
lovely rear end with good angles and correct muscle for age. A
little naughty on the move but she is still a baby. One to
McGill’s Winterkloud Mad Moments. A different outline from my winner and
lots to like. Lovely head and eye. Good shoulders and depth of chest.
Nice broad rear end with correct amount of muscle and good turn of
stifle. Good mover.
Islekeepers After Dark.
1st Morgan’s Belleville
Anjo De Noite. 9mth. Pretty young lady. Good foreface and eye
but needs more width to skull. Well laid shoulders. Rather
narrow all through. Needs to body up and mature. Nice mover.
Post Graduate Bitch
1st McGill’s Digadogs O
Cornelia ( Imp). Gave this young lady the RCC before when she
was in Junior and she has come on just as I hoped. Now 2˝ yrs,
she is maturing nicely. Lovely outline, super head, broad but
feminine with correct proportions and good eye colour. Well made
with good shoulders and depth of chest. Well muscled rear and a
super mover. Positive and powerful in profile, true fore and
aft. Appears very confident and needs firm handling. CC
Stevens’ Cartmel's Cute 'N Curly. Another nice girl at 18mth. A little
finer than 1 but with a good head. Well laid shoulders and good depth of
chest. Good rear end, well muscled and a good mover. True fore and aft
and good in profile
3rd Spencer & Quantrill’s
Cartmel's Belmira At Islekeeper
Gibson’s Rarjo Here She Comes To Majesixs. My, how this young
lady has changed. She didn’t shine for me as a puppy. Now 2yrs
old and love her for type and shape. Lovely head with dark eye.
Super shoulders and depth of chest. Particularly liked her rear,
broad and powerful. Well muscled throughout. Expertly handled as
she was not entirely happy today and kept her tail down but
showed she can be a stylish powerful mover and her type carried
her through the class. The hesitancy cost her the CC today but
her other qualities meant I could not deny her the RCC
McGill’s Bregantia Dont Stop Me Now At Winterkloud. Another lovely lady
with a pleasing outline and a lovely head with dark eye. Well laid
shoulders and good rear angles. Good mover, particularly behind and in
profile. Not quite as true as 1 in front
1st Bongiovanni’s Ch
Rarjo It Had To Be You For Ankors. Headed up a class of 4 nice
bitches. This 5yr lady has a lovely outline and a super head
although her eye could be a little darker. Well laid shoulders
and good depth of chest. Good bone and feet. Well muscled,
powerful rear. Just pipped the class on her truest front
Dring & Sword’s Tracklem Talk Of The Town. This 6yr old lady is another
good example. Super outline, lovely broad yet feminine head, well laid
shoulders, good bone, super rear, well muscled and powerful. Super mover
behind and in profile. A tough wide coming back that lost her the class.
