Judge: JONATHAN B DALTREY

 

A fabulous entry numerically and in quality, and a superb venue, with excellent facilities and a superb luncheon, enjoyed by Committee, and exhibitors alike, topped by outstanding weather made for a first class show.

 

MINOR PUPPY D/B (2)

1. AMANDJENA CARSON NEVADA, raw but quality baby, won this class on shoulder placement and freer action and topline. Lovely bone and substance, sympathetically handled. BPIS

2. AMANDJENA CONWAY ORLANDO, lovely head shape ad balance to this litter mate, similar comments apply, lovely straight front, just not so positive coming and going.

 

PUPPY DOG (2)

1. AMANDJENA CLEVELAND OHIO, littermate to the previous two, scores coming and going, but not quite the profile action of Nevada. Well-made throughout, with lots of promise.

2. A CONWAY ORLANDO.

 

JUNIOR DOG (1)

1. PYRPRESSURES MY AMERICAN DREAM AT BELSHANMISH, glamorous with a decent head shape and eye, lovely lips, and well-muscled rear end. Definitely at that in-between stage, and needs to tighten up at the elbow, to fill out, spring his rib and grow on. Lovely straight front and excellent feet. Moved OK.

 

YEARLING DOG (3)

1. CHARIBERE SIMPLY SPECIAL AT CHEZANNA JW, a quality exhibit, well made, I liked his substance, spring of rib and strength of loin, excellent bone, great feet, and a lovely outline. On the move, just not totally settled, which spoilt his tail-carriage. One for the future.

2. P MY AMERICAN DREAM,

3. KRICARNO KOOKIE

 

NOVICE DOG (2)

1. P MY AMERICAN DREAM,

2. K KOOKIE, decent head and eye, good for bone and topline, just not right today on the move at all, not enjoying himself, and paid the price.

 

UNDERGRAD DOG (3)

1. PYRBERN BLOND DEFENDER AT BURSVILLE, not the most exuberant of movers, and was playing the fool, but I saw enough to give him this class. Best of toplines and croup, ribs and excellent muscle tone.

2. SKETRICK NEXT ADDITION, I love the head type of this dog, but heís a rangier and totally different type, not nearly so balanced or as accurate on the move as the winner. Definitely needs time.

3. K KOOKIE.

 

POST GRAD (2)

1. C SIMPLY SPEC

2. PYRBERN BLOND LYNX, quite well put together, but not quite the head or jawline of the winner. Good for angles fore and aft, but needs to strengthen behind to improve his action going away.

 

LIMIT DOG (6, 1)

1. VIíSKALYíS HARRY HONDA AT KINGTON, an easy winner here, loved him, scoring in head and eye, balance and outline, strength of topline, and the most accurate of movers here today. Close up, Res Best Dog.

2. SKETRICK LUPO, another good profile here, but couldnít match the winner for head type nor accuracy in rear action.

3. LISJOVIA SEE THE STARS AT CHEZANNA,

 

OPEN DOG (6)

1. MARBORE DE ALBA DE LOS DANZANTES AT SKETRICK, I loved the head shape, eye placement and lips of this dog, who headed a fabulous quality class. He has a lovely straight front, great strength of neck and carriage, firm hock and lovely feet. It was, however, his smooth & effortless side gait that won him this hard fought class. Best Dog & Best In Show.

2. CH GILLANDANT ROCKAFELLA, I judged this lovely dog as a raw youngster and thought he would be a worth title holder then. I loved his head shape and balance, his rear muscle tone is superb with clear definition and strength to his second thigh, firm strong hocks, and excellent topline. Today just not as accurate coming as I would have liked, and not quite at one with his handler as the winner.

3. JAZANAH JAUNTY.

 

VETERAN DOG/BITCH (6, 1)

1. RICADUFFAL SHOOTING STAR, fabulous balance and shape and excellent movement for a 9 yr. old.

2. KRICARNO KOMMENDATION, fabulous head with a lovely outline, just not as enthusiastic on the move.

3. SHANLIMORE PRINCESS CARLA.

 

PUPPY BITCH (1)

1. SHANLIMORE DELTA LADY AT BELSHANMISH, a really lovely headed youngster, with lovely pigment and excellent lips. Good for balance and length of body, lovely bone. She just played about so much on the move, and unfortunately got less co-operative as the day progressed, a great pity as I liked her a lot.

 

JUNIOR BITCH (2)

1. GILLANDANT SIZZLING SPICE, my notes say, WOW, what a fab pair of youngsters. So hard to split. I just preferred the head and more accurate rear action of this winner over what I later found out to be her littermate! Both are great to go over, and show huge potential. In the challenge, little did I know that she outmanoeuvred and out moved her Mother to take Best Bitch and Res Best In Show. I thought that she made an excellent match, especially in head, to my Best Dog.

2. GILLANDANT LEYLA VIA SHANLIMORE, equally as good, but just not quite the profile concentration of her sister today.

 

YEARLING BITCH (4)

1. G SIZZLING SPICE

2. G LEYLA

3. S DELTA LADY

 

UNDERGRAD BITCH (2)

1. G SIZZLING SPICE

2. ORDESSA MOONLIGHT DREAMS, sweetest of heads, a lovely straight front, strong in topline, but not so good in rear action as the winner.

 

POST GRAD BITCH (7, 2)

1. O MOONLIGHT DREAMS,

2. SKETRICK NOM DE PLUME, another lovely head type from this exhibitor, but sadly not matching the winner in body, substance or movement.

3. PYRBERN BLOND APACHE

 

LIMIT BITCH (4, 2)

1. SHANLIMORE PHEOBE AT BURSVILLE, I preferred the winner for breed type, and head although could benefit from a touch more angulation in front. Moved well enough to take this class.

2. KALKASI MISTY STAR OF RICADUFFAL, not quite the head type for me, but shows good reach in front, and holds a very firm topline in profile action.

 

OPEN (2, 1)

1. CH GILLANDANT SUGAR AND SPICE, on first appraisal I thought that this bitch would be my BIS winner. She is great to go over, and has everything to like, her head and expression is spot on, and I see where her daughters get this quality now. On the move, I just found her daughter more fluid, accurate, and consistent, so today she had to settle for the runner up spot.
