Class 1 Veteran Dog or Bitch(3,2)
Winson's Ch Meisan Moonlight Serenade. One that I have judged before
who has just turned 7 years old. Lovely all round bitch who continues to
be able to compete with the younger dogs and still exhibiting that
fantastic effortless movement I love to see on a bobtail. Good head
properties, excellent pigmentation and well off for bone. Presented in
excellent condition and her all round conformation and movement gave her
the edge over the BD. Res Best Bitch & Res Best In Show
Class 2 Minor Puppy Dog (2,1)
Tomes' Brinkley Rockafella. I really liked this youngster, nearly 10
months old with a good square outline. Super mouth, strong muzzle and
correct bite, 2 brown eyes with good pigment and an excellent square
skull. Good front with an excellent reach of neck and well sprung
ribcage. Strong back end with neat hocks, topped with a profuse coat
changing nicely for age. Moved steadily for one so young, what a happy
boy. PD & BPIS
Class 3 Puppy Dog (2)
Two quality boys and a difficult decision.
Willis' Bovaron Just William. Big upstanding young dog with good
outline and well off for bone and with super head properties. Good reach
of neck leading into well laid back shoulders and lovely tight front.
Excellent bend of stifle with neat hocks. Harsh and very profuse coat,
carrying a little bit of brown but forgave this as he is only young and
his coat is changing. Moved steadily and just needs more time to mature
into his large frame.
Harris' Beauvallon Apollo. Smaller type boy with two brown eyes and
excellent pigment, good length of neck leading into clean #&
correctly angled shoulders. His jacket was advanced and had a lovely
break to it. Well angulated hind quarters. Nice mover just needs to
tighten up on his front. Lots to like about this young man but preferred
masculinity of my winner.
Class 4 Junior Dog (3,2)
& Woods' Shingdeka Darkest Peru At Bumblebob. 15 month with large
capacious head, substantial dog who shows promise, short coupled with
strong rear end. Wealth of grey coat with an excellent break. Played up a
little when on the move so was difficult, at times, to assess his
movement but did eventually settle. Would like to swee a bit more neck
and better shoulder angulation to balance the picture.
Class 5 Novice Dog (2)
1st. Willis' Bovaron Just William. Preferred the front and shoulder of my winner
2nd. Taylor & Woods' Shingdeka Darkest Peru at Bumblebob.
Class 6 Special Yearling Dog (1)
Deskiewicz's Mellowdee Man In The Mirror. Smaller type with lovely
square outline and good bone for size. 2 brown eyes with full pigment
and lovely square skull. Very short coupled with harsh texture to his
coat, changing nicely for his age. Liked this boy's back end with good
bend of stifle and low set hocks. Was a steady mover but another who
needs to tighten up on his front.
Class 7 Graduate Dog (0)
Class 8 Post Graduate Dog (0)
Class 9 Limit Dog (1)
Cheshire's Molyneux Smooth Operator. I have judged this boy before and
he is maturing nicely. Excellent head properties and correctly angualted
shoulders, straight front and well off for bone. Good bend of stifle,
all topped by a harsh dark jacket. He was carrying a little too much
weight and this cost him the RBIS. Best Dog.
Class 10 Open Dog (2)
Krisendaw King Edward of Hurstbank. Another I have judged before. Good
mouth and broad width of skull. Strong rise to loin, compact dog but
coat texture let him down today. Moved with a powerful and effortless
front and hind action, displaying good reach and drive. Reserve Best Dog.
Smart's Macopa Dark Storm. Strong head properties with 2 brown fully
pigmented eyes, arched neck leading into well angulated shoulders,
elbows could be tighter. Stood four square topped with a harsh grey
jacket. Movement let him down today as he did not have the strength and
reach in his front movement.
Class 11 Minor Puppy Bitch (1)
Rutland's Mellowdee Hot N'Spicy. Raw young girl of 7 month with the
deepest brown eyes. Well arched neck leading into correctly angulated
shoulders and a lovely rising topline. Body and head needs to develop
but time is on her side. Hard to assess her movement as playing up
slightly, just needs more time.
Class 12 Puppy Bitch (3,1)
Castle's Molyneux Mysterious Girl. Very appealing young lady who was
well boned, compact and cobby with excellent head properties, good
strong square jaw, clean shoulders and tight elbows. Good hindquarters
with a wealth of excellent grey coat.
Cheshire's Molyneux She's The One. Litter sister to my winner and
similar comments apply. Coat changing at a slightly slower rate. Just
preferred the front and shorter coupling of her sister.
Class 13 Junior Bitch (2)
Crane-Duplock's Mirene Honky Tonk Angel. Real little sweetie, so very
short, had the best neck and rise of the day. Good bite and well
prooortioned head for size. Coat changing and just needs to clear as she
was carrying a bit of brown but forgave this as she is only young and
this should come as she matures. Well handled.
Rutland's Mellowdee Miss Magical. Larger type of bitch and another with
excellent neck, front and shoulders. Everything in the right place just
needs tome to mature and body up
Class 14 Novice Bitch (0)
Class 15 Special Yearling Bitch (1,1)
Class 16 Graduate Bitch (1,1)
Class 17 Post Graduate Bitch (2)
Harris' Beauvallon Sweetheart. Nice sized girl with excellent neck and
shoulders and lovely spring of rib and good depth to her brisket. Has a
good rise to loin topped with a lovely coat with the correct break just
needs more profuseness to finish the picture. Moved well with great
Valleydell Jasmine. Larger bitch with lots to like and especially loved
her head markings and expression. Great head properties and another who
excelled in front. Slightly longer in body than my winner and not quite
the rise to loin.
Class 18 Limit Bitch (2)
This was a hard decision as both were lovely bitches.
Bull's Valleydell Jezebel. This well presented bitch has matured nicely
since I last judged her. Smaller type of bitch and ultra feminine
whilst still retaining excellent subsrtance. Good head properties. 2
well pigmented dark brown eyes giving a typical bobtail expression. Well
arched neck with excellent shoulder placement, a good rising topline
and short coupled. Correct bend of stifle and low set hocks. Profuse
coat of excellent quality which is still changing and needs a little
more time but is maturing nicely. Moved steadily and soundly front and
bacl. Good to see a well muscled back end. Best Bitch and Best In Show
Powell's Pouchymo Pins and Needles. This one is a real sweetie, with
excellent head properties, loved her head markings giving her an
appealing expression. Lovely arched neck leading into well angulated
shoulders with an excellent spring of rib. Was moving a little close
today and just needs more density of coat to finish the picture.
Class 19 Open Bitch (4,1)
Bluebelle De Ronda Sweet Dreams. Larger type with sound all round
conformation. Excellent reach of neck with wel sprung ribs and very
short coupled. Very dark coat with good texture but needs more in length
and profuseness to give a better all round finish. Really liked her
square outline, shown and presented to perfection.
Wakefield's Hibray Jasmin At Forest Belle. Pretty bitch, with 2
brown fully pigmented eyes. Good spring of rib and neat hocks. Excellent
coat in texture and colour just preferred the substance and shorter
coupling of my winner.
3rd. Steele's Arthrug Upon A Sunbeam.
