VHC: WADMORE-SMITH’S CH ROSSVALE THE LOOK OF LOVE JW
PD (4,3a) 1 Elliott’s Neradmik Boss at Fletilla, promising youngster who will look so much better once he is under total control. I liked his size, very good head type, lovely eyes & ears & neat ears. He was immaculate in coat but proved a handful on the move where his interests lay in other directions. Gave glimpses of showing how well he can move.
JD (2,1) 1 Hill’s Zaandvoort Dream Works, well coated & presented dog of good size for his sex, ample substance, quite compact with a decent spring of rib & high set tail, outline is good & he handles well, pleasing head, eyes are the right shape & colour, just about enough neck. As he circled the ring he looked so balanced & kept his shape. A little close in hock & he was a little too bouncy when coming towards me.
PGD (1) A.
LD (5) 1 CC, Wilkes’ Pommary Ashu Lodale for Dakaralkees, I really liked this handsome, all male dog. His head handles so well, the skull is flat, the muzzle a good length (too many over fine & short) & his eyes are well shaped although I admit they could be a tad darker. However, I liked the intelligent look from him, he has a decent neck, is totally balanced in construction, true front assembly & in action he was positive stepping with a brisk, evenly paced stride. Immaculate in coat he showed is head off. CC, his first; 2 Blomfield’s Valindale Whatever, this chap was close up, better eye colour than 1 but not so balanced in skull/muzzle ratios. Good size over the withers, all male in outlook & is certainly compact, when settled showed a balanced stride. 3 Rose’s Rossvale Sacred Spirit for Esorkees.
OD (4,1) 1 RCC, Bennett & Savage’s Ch Thorsdale Trademark, at first glance I had him down as my CC winner, something didn’t please him as while he allowed me to handle him effortlessly he was as tense as a drum, leaning away from me & I just knew he was upset. He is a lovely example of the breed, excellent shape, compact, a beautifully coloured jacket & a good medium size. While he went soundly enough, the light, brisk stride just was not evident which swung the decision the LD winner’s way. It may have been the aircraft noise or whatever but something surely got to him; 2 Matthew’s Aus Ch Calivale What The Valindale, all male, big ribcage, bags of substance & very good eye shape & colour, he was in good coat but was decidedly awkward with his handler, restless & very reluctant to prove he had ears. On the go around I felt he was going in fits & starts despite his handlers efforts. Will have better days; 3 Divers’ Ch Allfirus Roll Of The Dice at Murmansk.
V (4,1) 1 Truselove’s Desanti Chinese Whispers over Neradmik, totally feminine in head, lovely soft expression, good size, certainly compact, lovely shape in repose & so well coated, lovely tight feet & such a good spring of rib, has decided charm; 2 Waller’s Ch Brykin Bourree, imposing dog in stance where he has a certain presence, I liked almost everything about him, his head, eyes & expression are so good. I felt he just lacks rib development & could carry more weight over the loin to advantage; 3 Bell’s Ch Allfourus Magic N Ice.
PB (4) 1 BP, Sharpe-Bale’s Neradmik Chanel, very pretty head with a decent length of muzzle & beautiful eyes, nice reach of neck, good ribcage, fairly compact & coat progressing well, came into her own on the move, so well schooled to move out evenly & with purpose; 2 Bell’s Allfourus Xtra Special, I saw this package at Kelso & thought she was a poppet, she is ever so pretty & self assured, oozes self confidence & I’m sure she will be a heart stealer, everything fits so well, I just hope she grows on enough to make it when she is mature; 3 Gregory’s Adorabubble.
JB (3,1) 1 CC & BOB, Sharp-Bale’s Lady Godiva’s Guilty Pleasures with Neradmik, stunning outline, just oozes correct type & handling her doesn’t disappoint, her head, eyes, ears & expression are out of the top drawer, she has a more than useful neck, is well ribbed, compact & has ample angulation without being overdone. Immaculate in coat as always from this exhibitor & she moved out with a smooth, brisk stride. I’m sure with maturity she will be a big threat in the group rings; 2 Elliott’s Natlou Lady Penelope at Fletilla, such a sweet person, lovely eyes & expression, nicely ribbed, well bodied & a beautiful tail set & carriage. However, she is a sidewinder on the move, found the grass interesting & as a result came towards me somewhat wide in front. I smiled thinking just how wayward she was.
PGB (8,4) 1 Wyeth’s Liekees Dawn Chorus, another who must have Bloodhound ancestors as she too was in the mood for tracking. A picture in stance with a pleasing head, well shaped, almost impish dark eyes & ears ever alert. She is so well ribbed, excellent legs & feet & was in good coat. Needs ring training; 2 Hill’s Pommary Talluhai Lo at Plymkees, nice for size, well developed ribcage, level back & good tail. Pleasing head, well groomed but regrettably steps much too short in profile action for me; 3 Waller’s Brykin Bandora.
LB (3,1) 1 Truelove’s Neradmik Balodora Lady D’Winter, lovely sized bitch, pretty feminine head, ample skull width, good expression, decent muzzle, well arched neck, good ribcage & high set tail, so well groomed & on the up & down she was quite true; 2 King’s Ricarra Evita of Kasmay, won her place here on her excellent side action, showing balance, purpose & keeping her shape, pleasing head though I would like a little more muzzle to balance the skull, she has enough neck, is well ribbed & was in excellent jacket; 3 Francis & Wilding’s Swashway Material Girl.
OB (9,2) 1 RCC, Austin’s Valindale Darling Girl for Chotahkees, I really liked this one & she was a serious contender for the CC as she definitely has the edge in maturity over the young JB winner. I think she has quality, super body shape & excellent legs & feet, lovely jacket which was immaculate, so sound & moving freely to win this class. Her head is lovely, the eyes correct & dark & so expressive, here she was ever attentive & showing off her charms. In the challenge she literally died on me, neck shrunk, ears disappeared & she was misery personified. Having lost the CC she then perked up & looked great but the battle was lost. Believe seeking her third CC & it will be deserved, should be a Ch; 2 Francis & Wildings’ Swashway Stagestruck, out of a much smaller mould but of true Keeshond type with a lovely head, correct expression, beautiful ears, firm bodied & so well muscled, she stands on well boned legs, has excellent feet & was spotless in condition. Unfortunately she was side winding & despite several valiant efforts by her handler she could not be persuaded to come back to me without leaning heavily in anticipation of a reward; 3 Gregory’s Neradmik Scandalous at Natlou.
