East of England Championship Show 2006
Keeshond Judge Miss L Newman
Positive trends included coats of good colour and contrasts. All coped very well with the heat. Some were of good size whilst others barely met the standard. Other concerns were a couple of bites (overshot) and some imbalanced conformation which was evident in movement.
PD (2) 1. Bell’s Allforus Top Gun. Nice baby. Square and balanced in shape. Short coupled. Really liked his head which was wedge shaped and ;had lots of strong features including dark, almond shaped eyes. Coat of correct colour. Hope movement comes together as he matures.
2.Brunt’s Foxifayre Flame Dancer of Zandvoort. Another promising youngster. Handsome dog with profuse coat for his age. Nice shaped profile with arched neck. Strong bone. Broader on head than 1. Again I hope movement will improve.
JD (1) 1. Pattison’s Eastkees One More Chance. Lovely balanced shape. Short coupled. Slightly broader in the head than preferred. Good eyes and small neat ears. Correct coat. Sound movement.
PGD (3, 2) 1. Bell’s Ffyniant Sugardaddy Allforus ShCM. Alone but some very praiseworthy qualities, including sound structure, good reach of neck and appealing expression with dark eyes. Correct bite. High set tail. Excellent dark coat with good contrasts. Just a little hesitant on the move.
LD (3, 1) 1. Matthews’ Eastkees Top Notch at Valindale. RBD. Possesses some super qualities. A very showy dog. He is short couples and has a good depth in chest, well arched neck with good reach. Good head with super clear spectacles. Sound shoulder construction. In good coat. High set tail. His rear movement is his weakness.
2. Potts’ Desakees Moonlight. Masculine dog. Liked his size and expression. Coat of clear contrasts. Good, well proportioned head with nice markings. Strong bone. Longer cast than 1. Movement sound.
OD (4, 1) Hicksonn’s Kichigai Great Pretender JW ShCM. BD. Rather steals the show with his ring presence. Striking dog and the pick of a close class. Super profile, well arched neck. Sound construction. Wedge shaped head with super dark, almond shaped eyes. Clear spectacles. Well set tail and correct coat. Sound enough in movement but has a tendency to ‘flap’ in front, likely due to carrying some excess weight and needing some muscular strengthening in shoulders with a few hill runs!
2. Matthews’ Valindale Whisky Mac. Another striking dog but different type to 1. Excellent profile. Super compact and balanced body. Good reach of neck. Nice clear eye markings but preferred the head of 1. Moved OK.
3. Rose’s Valindale Rum Punch. Also a top quality dog with some great features. Again different in type. I liked his dark colour. Good head and expression. Not quite the compact shape of 1 & 2 and was dropping his tail a bit in the heat. Moved well.
PB (3) 1. Eggleston’s Ricara Italian Sweetheart. BP. Pretty bitch. Quite a baby but should develop nicely. Good straight front and rear quarters. I liked the shape of her head. Correct eyes. Good reach of neck and good tail set. Coat of clear colour. Very good mover.
2. Pattisonn’s Foxifayre Disco Star with Eastkees. Ssome lovely features with sound body, pretty head and well placed neat ears. Alert expression. Good length of nect. Just dropping her tail and a little unsettled on the move.
3. Hickson’s Neradmik Scandalous at Natlou. Another pretty puppy. Lighter in colour. Maturing nicely. Clear facial markings. Sound bone. Not showing herself off today though.
PGB (2, 1) 1. Eggleston’s Martellkees a Love Affair for Ricara. I was very impressed with this bitch. She is so balanced and well constructed. Good size. Lovely Head with clear markings. Coat of excellent colour. Movement was sound.
LB (2, 1) Brunt’s Foxifayre Unforgettable of Zandvoort. RBB. Petty foxlike expression. A compact short coupled bitch. Quite petite. Good wedge shaped head. Nice almond shaped eye. Correct Coat. Movement OK.
OB (3, 2) Hickson’s Ch Kichigai Amazing Grace. BB and BOB. Top Quality bitch. Very striking outline. She is a real classic with excellent size and shape. Well proportioned head with good clear spectacles. Nicely contrasting coat with good texture. Construction is sound in front and rear. Showed and moved well. Could be even better if she loses a couple of pounds.
