My decision to move the bitch judging undercover was made purely for dog comfort & I apologise to those who declared a preference to remain outside. Assessing my entries I encountered a mix of quality with a notable amount of poor movers. Size & overall substance varied too & I think that breeders should be mindful of these important points when planning litters. All my winners were firmly out of the top drawer & any tight decisions were resolved by movement.
PD (4) 1 BP, Wilkes’ Pommary Ashu Loadale for Dakaralkees, nice size with a good overall balance & a superb head, well boned with good reach of neck, loved his confident nature & friendly expression, one to watch I’m sure; 2 Woods’ Neradmik French By Design at Weglaufen, smaller than 1 but not lacking in quality. Compact & sound mover, showed a presence that caught the eye. He will soon be mixing it with the big boys where I predict that he will do well. 3 Peck’s Pommary Murrays Rove at Byquy.
JD (2) 1 Gate’s Valindale What Do You Think about Lacetrom, pleasing & compact boy who displays much promise, well presented to show off his coat & colour & showed confidently & proudly, lovely eyes & expression; 2 Pattison’s Eastkees Licence To Love, good dog with an exceptionally good head & ear placement, covered the ring with style & showed promising movement. Tad short on coat that let him down.
PGD (3) 1 Cusick’s Leazehond Raffles Dream, good sized dog of darker colour but sound as a bell & a delight to watch on the move, good spring of rib & a body to match; 2 Barton’s Rossvale Spirit Of The Night at Collcrist, class dog who pushed 1 all the way, liked his intelligent expression & head, his tailset was particularly good as was the complete picture. It was difficult to separate the two but 1 just shaded it on movement; 3 Eggleston’s Martellkees Eastkees Jack Of Diamonds for Ricara.
LD (4) 1 RCC, Bennett & Savage’s Thorsdale Trade Mark, have admired in the past & he just gets better, superb bone & body balance with a reach of neck that fits the Standard like a glove, on the move he excels & is a dream to watch & go over, pushed the CC winner all the way & the decision was close; 2 Day’s Alforus Dice Master for Spitzcav, darker than 1 but with lots of style, very compact with a great head he displayed an abundant coat that gave a good profile; 3 Divers’ Allforus Roll Of The Dice at Murmansk.
OD (4) 1 CC & BOB, Peck’s Valindale Fixed Assets for Byquy, my sort of dog in all respects, strong & muscular with a commanding presence that held my attention from the moment I saw him, superbly handled he moved like a dream & that was certainly not all, a wonderful masculine head proudly placed on a long neck, gentle gaze that told you he was your friend, wherever you looked & felt, he was the business & he rightly topped the day’s entry & I was proud to send him forward; 2 Pattison’s Eastkees One More Chance, smaller than 1 with a good high tailset & abundant coat of correct colour, good overall balance & looked the part on the move; 3 Potts’ Desakees Moonlight.
PB (3) 1 Peck’s Valindale Waltzing Matilda for Byquy, 7 months baby of good size who could charm the birds from the tree, her first coat was a delight to see & the colour was impressive, for such a youngster she showed remarkable animation on the move & will be one to watch; 2 Hickson’s Kichigai Moonlight Kisses, slightly older than 1 & with finer features, lovely feminine expression she made a great & proportioned profile, particularly when on the move; 3 Wilson’s Gallowtree Midnight Belle.
JB (2) 1 Henman & Peterson’s Eastkees Dare To Dream of Foxifayre, pleasing lady with good colour, balance & bone, from her pretty head to the tailset, she justified her place with style; 2 Burgess’ Reesburg Rock Rose, darker than 1 but no absence of quality, lovely almond shaped eyes that melted your heart & sound body. Her liveliness on the move spoiled her chances.
PGB (5,2) 1 Stubbings’ Vandersee Autumnal Mist, bitch with much to admire, her coat & markings stood out, as did her profile overall balance, neck, head & eyes are all well up to the Standard & she certainly enjoys showing off; 2 Atkinson’s Allforus Dice With Me, just a few days after her second birthday this young lady shows promise, nice head, sweet expression but was not playing ball when asked to move & it was this that let her down.
LB (7) Biggest class of the day. 1 RCC, Truelove’s Neradmik Biaodora Lady D’Winter, surely she must be on her way for a tiara of her own, slightly smaller in stature than some of her classmates she makes up for it by being delightfully compact & confident when on the move, good high tailset completes the picture of a dog worthy of a RCC; 2 Wadmore-Smith’s Rossmore The Look Of Love, great song & the lady that shares its title truly deserves her place in show business, well proportioned, good colour & coat texture, has much to offer, her frame & bone were also worthy of note, moved well & pushed 1 all the way. 3 Marfleet’s Flatmeer Fleurig.
OB (3) 1 CC, Brewer’s Ir Ch Helkeesen Eventful, like a big finish & that is what I got, what a poppet, perfect outline & that wonderful springy second coat that we all dream will arrive at the right time, head, neck, tail, all exquisitely in balance & two eyes that sparkled like jewels, has the world at her feet & I prayed that her trot would not spoil anything, no problem, all boxes ticked & the CC was hers, her crown; 2 Gregory’s Neradmik J Adore Amikirs, has much to offer, good colour & structure, had one of the best neck reaches, she strutted her stuff & did not disappoint & did her handler proud; 3 White’s Neradmik Magic Moments.
