My thoughts while judging were that our breed had still not improved sufficiently in shoulder conformation from when I last judged & the shoulders were of varying degrees. As this forms part of the structure of our lovely breed we really should all be taking more care when breeding & showing. Also more prominent since I last judged was the eye shape & colour, there really are too many light eyes. I found some exhibits with lame and/or lazy hind legs. These points changed some my placings.
PD (1) 1 Tew’s Bargeway Mr Bojangles, quality exhibit with very good general balance which shows in his lovely movement when the handler gets him moving at a sensible speed. This youngster really impressed me standing at a good height for a male. Excellent bone with clean legs & cat shape feet. Tail carriage, set & curl excellent. Head proportions excellent with good depth of muzzle. Mouth with correct bite. BP, CC & BOB.
JD (3) 1 Tew’s Bargeway Keen To Rumble, This dog shows very good movement when viewed from all angles. This male stands at a good height showing daylight. Head properties satisfied; 2 Matthews’ Pommary Ruff N Ready at Valindale, This male is of good size with excellent colour & pigment, head properties very good with good bite & ear size. Movement confirmed construction.
PGD (2) 1 Wilkin’s Whizzkees Onyx Sampson, smaller than I would like for a male however movement & balance was very good. Good size ears. Good dark colouring & pigment; 2 Shepherd’s Reesburg Rainbow Warrior, good balance & markings, front movement pleased. Would have preferred a better shape eye. Head properties pleased.
LD (3) 1 Hill’s Plymkees Cool Dude, this dog is of good size with excellent colour & markings. Movement is a pleasure to watch. Not showing at his best; 2 Watson’s Pommary Majic Tricks, balance & size is good, head properties satisfied with a shorter muzzle than I would prefer. More neck would improve.
OD (4) 1 Wilkin’s Ch Pommary Quick Silver at Whizzkees, this upstanding male is of good size & balance. Not carrying his full coat today. Excelled in neck, shoulder & bone. Head properties excelled but would have preferred a darker eye, good ear carriage, excellent in movement. RCC; 2 Divers’ Ch/Ir Ch Allforus Roll The Dice at Murmansk, not quite the general balance of 1. Movement pleased, colour & markings very good. I liked the head type & eye shape. This male had a pretty expression; 3 Bell’s Allforus Top Gun.
PB (2) 1 Tew’s Bargeway Mystery, general balance & type excellent, head properties excelled with good proportions & sweet expression, movement could improve with more let down of hock; 2 Bell’s Foxifayre Hidden Treasure Allforus, general appearance excellent, good colour tail & carriage, head properties pleased would improve with better shape eye & ear placement. Hind movement satisfied.
JB (3) 1 Watson’s Pommary Elite N’ Klassic at Colpatron, overall balance & movement very good, head properties good would have preferred a feminine expression; 2 Hickson’s Kichigai’s Moonlight N’Vodka, front movement satisfied, good colour & tail carriage, head properties acceptable. Needs more stop & a better shape eye would improve.
PGB (5) 1 Austin’s Chotahkees Enchantress, good general balance & size showing daylight under the dog, good dark colour however a little smutty for me. Tail & carriage good, good bone but would of preferred better shape feet. Head properties pleased this could improve with better eye shape & colour; 2 Eggleston’s Martellkees Forget Me Not by Ricara, not quite the general balance of 1. Front & hind movement very good, tail carriage good. Head properties pretty however I found the colour deters from the stop; 3 Wilkin’s Whizzkees Onyx Sapphire .
LB (2) 1 Mcintosh & Burdon’s Whizzkees Onyx Solitaire of Sheldron, good shoulder conformation showing typical movement. Colour & markings very good in excellent coat & condition Head properties balanced with feminine expression, good eye shape & colour. RCC; 2 Austin’s Chotahkees Truly Gorgeous, balanced showing a good picture, head properties good but this showed a muzzle that was too broad to balance & the nose was of a swine shape. Eyes could have improved with better shape & colour. Ears would improve if smaller & thinner. Movement very good when viewed in profile.
OB (3) 1 Wilkin’s Whizzkees Silver Slipper, quality balanced exhibit showing good size with excellent shoulder conformation & bone, movement was excellent when viewed from all angles, head properties, eye colour & ear carriage very good. This lady was at one with her handler & was shown in excellent coat & condition. CC; 2 Divers’ Ir Ch Kichigai Rare Edition at Murmansk, feminine expression with acceptable head properties, good tail & carriage, movement satisfied when viewed from all angles. Clean legs & feet. Eye conformation satisfied.
