Judge  CATH MOFFAT

The North Of England Pyrenean Club held an open show where BIS was Ch/Ir Ch Kalkasi In High Spirits; RBIS, Ch Gillandant Sizzling Spice; & BP, Lisjovia Whistling Dixie for Montimur.

VD 1 Kenyon & Ward’s Ch Charibere Secret Of Ours at Chezanna, lovely masculine head of good quality with kind expression, dark eye & pigment. Still retaining his strong qualities as an 8 year old and in very fit condition. Good forechest with straight front & correct body proportions throughout, nicely angulated with toned, sound rear, turned out in good coat & in excellent condition. RBD, BV; 2 Pollard’s Gillandant Midnight Legacy, handsome 8 year old male of nice quality with good angulation throughout. Balanced skull with good pigment & kind eye. Straight front with good forechest & depth. Stood well in profile & still very sound when moving. Another who was turned out in lovely condition & presented well; 3 Thorne’s Alchazandis Rupert Bear at Pyrajay. MPD, PD, JD, MD & ND (0). LD 1 Greenfield’s Gillandant Shekeelah, 3 year old male with lovely pigment & a melting dark eye, would prefer a little more breadth in skull. Good bone, he stood well in profile, would like more development in chest to give an improved front structure. Retained his topline well on the move. OD 1 Baverstock’s Ch/Ir Ch Kalkasi In High Spirits, lovely, masculine head & dark eye with that most dreamy expression. 6 year old male who I judged 18 months ago & feel he is a dog who really comes into his own as he has matured. Beautifully angulated throughout with good body proportions. Looked well in profile both standing & moving. Sound, positive movement, he was turned out in the most immaculate of condition. BD, BIS.

VB 1 Pollard’s Ch Gillandant Crystal Rose, nicely constructed bitch of 8 years who still retains a good, clean front with lovely angulation throughout. Good shoulder placement & correct shape & depth of chest. Stood well in profile & moved soundly. Turned out in first class condition with beautiful coat; 2 Greenfield’s Ch Gillandant Crystal Fantasy, another lovely 8 year old bitch of good quality with sound topline. Feminine head with the most beautiful expression, good pigment. Nicely angulated throughout, would just prefer a straighter front to complete an otherwise lovely picture. A little erratic & unsettled on the move but a bitch with the most super temperament. MPB 1 Thorne’s Belshanmish Pretty In Pink at Pyrajay, promising, feminine puppy of 6 months with lovely angulation throughout, good neck length leading into a pleasing shoulder placement. Pretty head with good pigment & lovely, appealing expression. Sound & positive movement with correct tail carriage. For such a youngster she didn’t put a paw wrong, turned out immaculately; 2 Baverstock’s Kalkasi Dream Chaser, different type to 1. Feminine bitch of 7 months with good pigment & eye colour, lovely temperament. Liked her proportions & angulation, clean, straight front with good depth of chest. Nice rib length & tail carriage, just not as settled on the move as my winner. PB 1 Ford’s Lisjovia Whistling Dixie for Montimur, lovely puppy of 11 months turned out in the most immaculate of condition, fit & well toned. Feminine, balanced head with kindest of expression, good pigment & eye colour. Beautifully angulated throughout with correct body proportions. Looked well in profile & in lovely coat, well maintained topline which she held well standing & on the move. I am sure this young girl has an extremely promising future ahead of her, well done. RBB, BP; 2 K Dream Chaser. JB, MB & NB 1 K Dream Chaser. LB 1 Sang’s Mizeka Hint Of Gold, still a relatively young bitch of nearly 20 months. Feminine, kind expression with good eye & pigment. Nicely angulated throughout with straight front & good depth of chest. Found her to be a little close in the rear when moving away but turned out in lovely condition with a good temperament. OB 1 Pollard’s Ch Gillandant Sizzling Spice, liked this class, three nice bitches of good quality. Lovely head with endearing expression, dark eye & excellent pigment. Good straight front with correct shape & depth of chest. Pleasing angulation throughout with lovely body proportions, feminine all through. Positive & effective movement, she was turned out in beautiful condition & presented to perfection. BB, RBIS; 2 Baverstock’s Ir Ch Kalkasi High Expectations, another lovely bitch of sound qualities, balanced head with darkest of eye & that ‘soul searching’ expression, liked her very much. Clean, straight front with correct angulation & body proportions. Turned out in very clean & fit condition. Moved with good reach & drive; 3 Sang’s Ch Kalkasi Destiny’s Spirit at Mizeka.
