North of England Keeshond Club

I was pleased to see so many cream feet beautifully manicured. Movement in general could improve and coat markings seem to be disappearing in some of the exhibits.

Minor Puppy Dog (2) 1st Mrs A Atkinson, WINKLESTAR CEPHEUS, 9 mth old lad with pleasing masculine head and well defined markings. Nicely boned and of good size and substance. Tail nicely set with desired double curl. Sound on the move. RBD. 2nd Mr & Mrs C R & G A Brunt, KIMOKEES LAUGH N RUN (TAF), Delightful baby boy only 6 mths old. Good bone structure, nice wedged head with defined specs and good stop, expect he will grow into his well placed ears. Still in his puppy coat but what is there is of good quality and texture. He enjoyed his time going round the ring.
Puppy Dog (3) 1st Lady K S & Mr C Hickson, KIGHIGAI LUKE SKYWALKER, Enthusiastic young man of 9 mths, square outline, nicely balanced wedge shape head, ears well placed. Good shoulder angulation and good bone structure. Eventually settled on the move. BP. 2nd F Battram, VANSTRAND HUNGRY HEART, 10 mth old lad with masculine head, well set ears and dark eye. Coat of good texture but could do with a little more of it. Slightly longer than 1 but straight on the move. 3rd Miss J S Davies, NERADMIK OVER THE RAINBOW TO KYROSS, Another 10 mth old who presented with a lovely square outline. Defined specs, neat ears and good reach of neck. Would like head to be a bit more masculine, not helped by the excess of coat. Suspect he will improve as he matures. Not as positive on the move.
Yearling Dog (1) 1st K & I McCormack, GALLOWTREE GHILLIE, 2 yr old lad, lovely outline just lacked coat today. Well balanced masculine head, defined markings, neat ears well set, he used his ears well and moved OK.
Limit Dog (5, 2 ab) 1st Mr I L & Dr E Stubbings, VANDERSEE IRISH GUARD, Another who had left some of his coat at home but did not detract from being a compact dog with good top line. Nice angulation of shoulder, high tail set. Masculine wedge head with good ear placing and eye colour and shape. Sound movement and with such confidence. BD, BOS. 2nd Mrs B Eggleston, BERT VON RICARA (IMP DEN) Lovely masculine head, with ivy ears neatly placed, dark eye, would prefer a slightly more almond shaped. Good angulation of shoulder and depth of chest. Harsh coat of good texture, moved positively. 3rd Mr & Mrs Palmer, ROSSVALE CAPTAIN BUTLER AT SHELDERON, Nice compact square outline, masculine head dark eye, ears a little too far apart. Moved OK.
OD (1) 1st Mr & Mrs C R & G A Brunt, SUEACRES ICED DIAMOND OF ZANDVOORT, Level top line and square outline. Masculine wedge shaped head, ears nicely place, dark eye. Good bone, high tail set nicely curled, good reach of neck and depth of chest.
Breeders Dog (2) 1st Mrs Atkinson, WINKLESTAR HADAR, Well balanced outline, good coat colour and texture. Nice bone, shoulders well angulated and good depth of chest, tail set high. Sound on the move. 2nd Hickson’s Kichigai Luke Skywalker

Minor Puppy Bitch (2, 1 ab) 1st Mrs A Atkinson, WINKESTAR COUNTESS, 8mth young lady, good size, lovely coat of good texture, wedge head with well defined markings, would prefer eyes a bit closer but good stop. Tail set high, moved well for her age.
Yearling Bitch (1) 1st Mr & Mrs S Palmer, SHELDRON SUMMER SPARKLE, Lovely young lady, compact square outline and level topline, good reach of neck. Coat of good texture, defined markings and nice tail set. Pretty feminine head nice dark almond eye and good stop, would like to see a bit more drive on the move.
PGB (6, 33 ab) 1st N Richardson, RICARA ROSE AT ODINKEES, Very pretty feminine bitch, balanced head with dark eye and well place ears. Good spring of rib, high tail set. Square in profile, beautiful coat good colour and texture with excellent markings, nicely groomed, only let down by front movement. 2nd Mr & Mrs S Palmer, SHELDERON SUMMER SPARKLE. 3rd A J & J M Fitches, VENWAY BELIEVE IN MAGIC AT SAMOYKEES, Well boned and good substance, good angulation and depth of rib. Nice textured coat and defined markings. Slightly long in the back, moved well.
Limit Bitch (4, 3 ab) 1st Mr I L & Dr E Stubbings, VANDERSEE WEDDING BELLE, Confident feminine bitch, lovely head with the desired ivy ears well placed, dark eyes, good bone and depth of chest, moved OK. RBB
Open Bitch (2, 1 ab) 1st Ms D Gregory, CH AMIKIRS BUBBLEICIOUS JW, Feminine bitch, good size and type. Level top line, lost a little coat but enough left for me, nice textured coat of good colour and defined markings. Pretty head and expression dark eyes emphasised by her specs, ivy shaped ears. Good angulation and depth of rib, well toned and moved well. BB & BIS
Veteran Bitch (1) 1st Mrs R Burgess, REESBURG ROCK ROSE, 8 yrs old spritely mature lady in excellent coat condition, stood square. Balanced head with dark eyes and well set ears. Well angulated shoulders, good depth of chest, double curled tail enjoyed using the ring.
Special Vintage Bitch (2) 1st Mrs R Burgess, VENWAY ZOE WITH REESBURG, What a pleasure to go over this old fashioned stunning girl. Despite being a 12 yr old there is much to like about this elderly lady. Plenty of substance, level topline, balanced head with good markings and dark eyes. A true Keeshond coat, harsh in texture and off standing correct to the breed standard. Tail slight loose but her movement was one of the best I have seen. BVIS. 2nd Mr I L & Dr E Stubbings, NORKEES SPECIAL EDITION AT VANDERSEE, Cheeky compact little lady with level top line. Feminine head eyes a little bit rounded but moved well for her age.
Breeders Bitch (4, 3 ab) 1st Ms D Gregory, CH AMIKIRS BUBBLELICIOUS JW
Special Not Bred by Exhibitor Bitch (1) 1st N Richardson, RICARA ROSE AT ODINKEES

Special Awards 14/02/15
Class A Special Yearling D/B 5/1
1st : Palmer’s Shelderon Summer Sparkle, Smaller bitch with a well-fitting Jacket of good colour and texture. Good head and shoulder placement, Moved well
2nd : Atkinson’s Winklestar Countess. Very raw baby who has a very pretty expression, correct colour and texture with the tightest of tails set well on her back. Lost out on movement today but this will come.
3rd : Davies’ Neradmik Over The Rainbow To Kyross. Larger dog with profuse coat who was unsettled on the move today. Would prefer a more masculine head for his size.
Class B Post Graduate D/B 5/3
1ST : Richardson’s Ricara Rose At Odinkees. Beautiful Bitch who excelled in head and eye. Although I would have loved her slightly taller she is so well balanced in size and shape. Front movement could be improved by her losing some weight and road walking to tighten her front.
2ND : Palmer’s Shelderon Summer Sparkle 1st in special yearling
Class C Open D/B 6/1
1st : Gregory’s Ch Amikirs Bubbelicious JW Smaller bitch who is so well made, beautiful expression Moves as one with her handler. Has a good head and eye with nice clean lines stands four square on good feet. Well fitted coat of great colour and condition.
2nd : Stubbings’ Vandersee Wedding Belle , nice honest bitch who has a tight high set tail with good lines and coat although could do with more trousers to finish the picture. But what she has is of good colour and texture.
3rd : Palmer’s Rossvale Captain Butler At Shelderon
