The Breed Stand on Discover Dogs

KEESHONDS CRTITIQUE CRUFTS 13TH MARCH 2011,

JUDGE: MRS. E. WOGAN.
Many thanks to the exhibitors for a lovely entry of 90 dogs and for the sporting reaction with which they received my decisions. I had some really lovely exhibits to go over, however, I did think there was more depth of quality overall amongst the bitches than the dogs, my open bitch class being the hardest of the day with some top quality bitches leaving the ring unplaced.

VETERAN DOG. 3.0A. 1ST: Austin’s CHOTAKEES WHAT A DREAM. Nice dog of correct size with very good neck and shoulder placement, high set tail, Giving a lovely outline, typical head with good eye shape, well placed ears. Good coat texture and clear colour. Sound mover. In excellent condition, a credit to his owner/handler. 2nd. Hickson’s CH. KICHIGAI GREAT PRETENDER. One I have seen before and always liked. Very balanced with good overall conformation, plenty of substance, correct tail set. Masculine head, nice eye and well placed ears. Well marked coat, well boned legs, good feet. Slight problem with his front movement cost him the class. 3rd. Rose’s VALINDALE RUM PUNCH FOR ESORKEES. Again, one I have judged before and highly placed but today lacking his previous sparkle. Nice size, good front, good angulation. Masculine head. Coat of correct texture with strong markings but could have done with a little bit more trousers. Tended to pull on one side when moving.

SPECIAL PUPPY DOG. 3. 0A. 1ST. Lindsay’s ENREVEYAR EXCEPTIONAL WITH MEZANDA Nice size, good front, would like him a little more compact. Typical head, eye of correct shape, a touch light, good ear placement. Enough bone, moved well. 2nd. Ednaaron’s BUCHKEES LOVE IN THE MIST. Compact with good overall balance, good reach of neck and shoulder placement. Tail set could be higher. Lovely head with dark eyes and neat ears. Coat of good texture and colour for age. Good bone, needs to settle on the move. 3rd. Wood’s NERADMIK SECRET AFFAIR WITH WEGLAUFEN. One I really liked and could have won the class but threw his chances away. Excellent body proportions and well made throughout, high set tail. Beautiful head, dark eye and nice ears. Good legs and feet. Needs to cooperate better with handler on the move.

SPECIAL JUNIOR DOG. 8. 0A. 1ST Brunt’ SUEACRES ICED DIAMOND OF ZANDVOORT. Very nice dog of lovely type, good front, right amount of angulation, good neck and shoulder placement, high tail set. Loved his head and expression, dark eye and well placed ears. Coat of clear colour, good legs and feet. Sound mover. Should have a bright future. 2nd.Well’s ALLFORUS HUBBA BUBBA OF BELANISTA. Smaller dog, well put together with a balanced outline, excellent tail set. Liked his head very much, dark eye of correct shape giving a lovely expression, correct ear placement. Strongly marked coat for age. Good bone, moved well. 3rd. Wilkes’ HELKEESEN SURFIN AT DAKARAIKEES Nicely made and in good body condition. Muzzle a little fine and would like a fraction more stop, dark eye, well placed ears. Clear coat colour, good legs and feet. Very sound moving dog

POST GRADUATE DOG. 9. 0A 1st. Luckurst’s GAVIMIR DEMON Looked an absolute picture when standing, excellent shape with good reach of neck and tail set, giving a lovely outline. Beautiful head and expression, dark eye of correct shape, well placed ears. Very good colour, good legs and feet. Beautifully presented and handled but rear movement let him down in the challenge. 2nd. ELLIOTT’s NERADMIK BOSS AT FLETILLA Threw his chances away, would not stand or use his ears properly which cost him the class. Quality dog of excellent type, good overall conformation and high tail set. Very attractive head with correct eye shape. Well marked coat of clear colour, good bone, sound mover. When better behave, should have a bright future. 3rd. BATTRAM’s EDNAARON HAWKWEED Good front with good reach of neck and shoulder placement. Tail set could be higher. Attractive head but foreface lacked markings, dark eye of nice shape giving lovely expression, well set ears, good coat colour. Would have liked more bone, moved ok.

LIMIT DOG. 7.0A 1st. FEIST’s NERADMIK VALENTINO Looked an absolute picture, beautiful outline, excellent neck and shoulder, good tail set, hard body condition. Gorgeous head and expression, well placed ears, plenty of bone, good feet, very sound mover. Coat of colour good and with stronger markings would have been a contender for top honours, Can see no reason why this dog should not make it to the top 2nd. ATKINSON’s TORRIKEES WHO IS THE BOSS OF WINKLESTAR Another quality exhibit, nicely balanced outline, good body condition, with good front, correct angulation, lovely head and expression, neat ears. Coat of correct texture and colour, very good bone, moved well, his day will come. 3rd. KING’s EASTKEES SECRETS AND LIES Could another day swap places with 2. Nicely made with good front, neck and shouder placement, high tail set. Lovely head and expression, dark eye, ears a touch large but well set. Coat of nice colour, good bone, moved well.

OPEN DOG. 7.0A 1st BLOMFIELD’s CH. VALINDALE WHATEVER. Most handsome and impressive dog, well up to size but without any coarseness. Excellent reach of neck, short back, high tail set. Masculine, attractive head of good type, dark eye of nice shape, correct ear placement for width of skull. Well marked coat of good clear colour and right texture. A pleasure to watch on the move, beautifully presented and handled by his breeder, my pleasure to award him CC and BOB. 2nd. DAY’s CH. ALLFORUS DICE MASTER FOR SPITZCAV One I have judged and liked when younger and has matured into a lovely dog but I do not think I have seen him looking better than today. Excellent overall conformation very good reach of neck, good tail set. Nice head type with lovely expression, dark eye, good ear set. In strong, well muscled body condition, nice legs and feet. Coat in full bloom with good texture and colour. Sound mover. Very well presented and handled. RCC. 3rd.BRUNT’s ZANDVOORT DREAM MACHINE Completed a trio of top quality exhibits, well constructed throughout with good neck and shoulder, short back and good tail set giving a lovely outline. Nice head and expression, eye of correct shape, excellent ears, good bone, moved well. Nicely handled. Would expect him get to the top in the future.

VETERAN BITCH. 6.0A 1st.SHARP-BALE’s CH. STURTMOOR CRAZY FOR NERADMIK. Lovely for type, beautiful shape and outline, excellent neck and shoulder, short back, good tail set. Liked her head and expression very much. Coat of nice texture and colour, good bone, nice feet, excellent mover. 2nd. GODDARD’s CH SWASWAY DRAMA QUEEN Smaller bitch with good conformation, excellent tail set, gorgeous head, dark eyes and small, well placed ears. Coat of clear colour and strong markings, good bone, nice feet, moved very well for her experienced handler. 3rd. STUBBINGS’ NORKEES SPECIAL EDITION AT VANDERSEE Nice outline, well put together with very good neck and shoulder placement. Good tail set, pretty head, dark eyes and neat ears. Good colour and strong markings, good legs and feet, excellent mover

SPECIAL PUPPY BITCH. 3.0A 1st.SAUNDERS’ LIEFKEES ANGELIKA Taller bitch, well constructed, good front, neck and shoulder, good angulation, tail set could be higher, nice head type with dark eye, good ear set. Coat of clear colour, good bone, moved very well 2nd.ROSES’NERADMIK KISSES AND GIGGLES FOR ESORKEES Lovely size, good make and shape with good substance, dark eyes, well placed ears, although to be hypercritical they could be a touch smaller. Well boned legs, sound mover but needs to make more of herself.

SPECIAL JUNIOR BITCH. 11.2A 1st. HICKSON’s KITCHIGAI SPECIAL EDITION Very nice bitch, balanced outline with excellent front assembly and high tail set. Sweet head and expression, lovely dark eye, nice ears, in good coat of clear colour and good markings, good bone, very sound on the move. Should have a bright future. 2nd.

In nice coat of good colour and markings. Very good on the move. BP. 3rd. HENMAN, PETTERSON AND BELL’s FOXIFAIRE PRETTY WOMAN. One I thought lovely and who could on another occasion win her class, but on the day her coat was not at its best. Excellent conformation, liked her size, very pretty head, with dark eyes, neat ears. Good bone, nice feet, excellent mover. In better coat should do really well.

POST GRADUATE BITCH. 10.5A 1st. EGGLESTON’s MARTELLKEES FORGET ME NOT BY RICARA, Right size and substance. Excellent neck and shoulder placement, short back, good tail set. Lovely head type, nice shape of eye and small ears. In good coat of correct texture and good colour, good legs and feet. Moved well. 2nd. JAINES and BATES’ ALLORUS BORN FOR ICE. Out of a bitch I have always liked and like her mother, of very good shape and make with good front, neck and shoulder. Tended to drop her tail. Very pretty head, eye of very good shape, giving sweet expression, and small, well placed ears. Coat of correct texture, Nicely boned legs, sound mover. 3rd. ELLIOTT’s NATLOU LADY PENELOPE AT FLETILLA Good overall balance with very good neck and shoulder placement, high tail set, however I felt her outline would have been served better if she carried less coat. Lovely head, dark eye and good ear placement. Clear coat colour, nice bone, Movement not quite as good as 1 and 2.

LIMIT BITCH. 9.3A 1ST HILL’s PLYMKEES LIMITED EDITION Short back, would have liked a touch more reach of neck, good tail set, pretty, feminine head with dark, nicely shaped eye, correct ear placement.

Beautiful head of a type that I love and that one has come to expect from this kennel, dark eyes and small ears. Nice bone. In full coat of clear colour, sound mover. Full of herself and quite a handful, credit is due to her handler for getting the best out of her in the challenge.
