Keeshonds

PD (1) 1 Hickson & Hickson’s Natlou’s Young Pretender under Kichigai, very handsome boy, in beautiful coat, excellent condition & presentation, lovely head. Ears just a touch sharp. Lovely body & tailset. Could be a little more up on leg for better balance. Strong behind, touch wide in front.
JD (1) 1 Brunt’s Zandvoort Dream Machine, very nice type & so well balanced in outline, harsh coat. Colour not his fortune, reluctant to show but sound enough.
PGD (6,2) 1 Gate & Gate’s Valindale What Do You Think about Lacetrom, best mover in the class, lovely coat, lovely colour, pleasing head & eye. Ears could be a touch smaller. Very well made, very sound. Reluctant showman; 2 Barton’s Rossvale Spirit Of The Night at Collcrist, liked this dog a lot, presented a good outline with lovely stand off coat, very typy head. Just travelled wide in front & close behind which cost him 1st; 3 Z Dream Machine.
LD (4) 1 Wadmore-Smith’s Rossvale Latin Lover, pleasing in head & ears, lovely body coat & colour, keen showman, well ribbed & well balanced. Just a little more neck needed. Very good on the move which put him in the lead; 2 Rose’s Rossvale Sacred Spirit for Esorkees, nice for size. Could be a little more masculine all through. Nice head type. Ears could be a touch smaller. Lovely, well presented stand off coat of decent colour & well marked. Couldn’t match movement of 1; 3 Wilkes & Wilkes’ Pommary Ashu Lodale for Dakaraikees.
OD (5,1) 1 Bennett & Savage’s Ch Thorsdale Trademark, really liked this dog, super coat, colour & well defined markings, lovely size, all male with lovely legs & feet, quality head, lovely expression, on the move he is sound & positive, in gleaming condition. CC & BOB over the gorgeous puppy on maturity; 2 Sharp-Bale’s Ch Neradmik Take A Chance, quality male I have judged & admired before, in full coat but not the colour of 1. So good to go over being so well made & soundly constructed, good mover. Could help himself more & show off his lovely head. RCC; 3 Blomfield’s Valindale What Ever.

MPB (2) 1 Sharp-Bale’s Neradmik Chanel, pretty baby, so well balanced in outline, very good coat of decent colour, pretty head & well marked, stood well & moved & showed beautifully; 2 Barton’s Stratus The Enchantress at Collcirst, very pretty head, lovely expression. Ears could be just a little smaller. Gorgeous colour. Coat a little soft in texture. Very sound. Just a shade long cast.
PB (1) 1 Sharp-Bale’s Lady Godiva’s Guilty Pleasures with Neradmik, wow! what a puppy, she has it all, quality, type & soundness, gorgeous head & ears, divine expression, super neck, short back, beautiful tailset, so well constructed & dead sound, excellent coat for both colour & texture, excellent showgirl who just cannot stand wrong, so well made. Loved her. CC, BP & PG1, The envy of many I am sure.
JB (1) 1 Wilson’s Gallowtree Midnight Belle, nice type, just a little plain. Must learn to handle & move properly. Not in full coat.
PGB (1) A.
LB (9,2) 1 Newman’s Leazehond Maddy Moonlight, the best balance in the class, substance yet with femininity, super coat texture, nice head, eye & ears, sound movement, very honest bitch, so correct in lots of ways & a good colour; 2 Davies’ Neradmik Bewitched with Kyross, not quite the head or colour of 1. Good neck & outline, keen showgirl. Just a little wide in front; 3 Gregory’s Neradmik Scandalous at Natlou.
OB (5,1) Four very nice bitches. 1 Wadmore-Smith’s Ch Rossvale The Look Of Love, lovely bitch, perhaps could be a little more of her. Lovely head & dark eye giving good expression, so well made & well balanced in outline, super coat in colour, texture & markings, best mover in the class. The puppy just had the edge in neck. RCC; 2 Francis & Wilding’s Swashway Stage Struck, the ultimate in pretty, super colour, the prettiest of heads, keen showgirl giving lovely expression, well bodied & in full beautifully presented coat. Just a touch wide in front coming towards; 3 Brewer’s Ch/Ir Ch Helkeesen Eventful.
