I would like to thank the committee for their help & hospitality. I was sorry Joan Dowdell was too ill to judge the show as I was looking forward to showing under her, I hope she has a speedy recovery. The entry was somewhat depleted as some exhibitors chose to withdraw their dogs so the entry of 48 was reduced to 26. As most of the adult dogs were absent it gave the youngsters a chance to shine, both of my CC winners being awarded their first CCs. Many thanks to my ring steward.

There were one or two exhibits with dark brown eyes instead of the required amber brown which does spoil the expression & also pigmentation faults brown eye rims instead of black & not on pure white dogs.

1 Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham’s  Charibere Simply Magic at Chezanna, 9 month old well grown puppy, tall & elegant, nicely balanced nice length of leg standing on correct cat feet, beautifully presented & handled, lovely bone, moved freely round the ring with ease holding his shape, head still developing as it should be at his age. Definitely one to watch; 2 Duffel’s Kalkasi A Star Is Born at Ricaduffal ,11 months blaireau male, pleasing head & expression with good pigmentation, correct eye shape, moving nicely holding his topline, needs a little more rear angulation which hopefully will come as he grows; 3 Wells’ Sketrick Odin.
1 Tadd’s Jacko Du Haras De Chante Neige avec Kricarno, two very lovely youngsters, close up in quality, just preferred the more finished head of 1. Just 13 months old, tall elegant male, well grown with the most lovely headpiece, correct shaped eyes, standing foursquare on good well boned legs with good length of body, still a little high at the back which should level out as he grows but still with enough rear angulation to warrant him being awarded his first CC; 2 C Simply Magic at C.
1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle, quality male, well balanced with correct angulation making a pleasing outline, nice straight back, good bone,  correctly shaped feet, good breath of skull though a little deep in lip, good pigmentation, moved soundly. Seemed a little lethargic in the challenge; 2 Burwell’s Summer Knight, pleasing head & expression, good pigmentation, correct almond shaped eyes, tight lips, nice length of neck going down to well constructed shoulders, good bone & feet, not moving so freely as 1 today; 3 Jumicor Ice Warrior.

1 Baverstock’s Kalkasi’s Moonlite Shadow, 8 months old light blaireau. Feminine head of good proportions for her age, tight mouth, almond shape eyes of correct amber brown, cat feet, good angulation, good body proportions, showed nicely; 2 Janes’ Lyra-Belle Du Haras De Chante Neige, 6 months old baby, I think this was her first show so understandably a little unsettled, pretty head & expression, eyes a little round at present but should tighten as head develops, good mouth with tight lip, shows promise; 3 Carter’s Casabear Moon Beam.
1 Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham’s  Charibere Simply A Dream at Chezananna, 9 months old, stunning all white young lady, mature for age, good bone, pigmentation, tight mouth, almond shaped eyes give her a true Pyrenean expression, good angulation both ends, her overall balance gives her free & flowing movement, pressed hard in the challenge. Presented & handled to perfection. I believe this win qualified her for her JW; 2 Lyra-Belle Du Haras De Chante Neige; 3 Carter’s Casabear Moon Beam.
1 C Simply A Dream at C; 2 Savage’s Vi’skaly’s Lilla My at Kington, light blaireu markings, pretty head of good proportions with good pigmentation, would have liked a little more length of body & a little bit more length of leg but at only nearly 12 months old this could change, nicely presented & moved well; 3 Fergus’ Davangel Reddest Ruby.

Quality young lady of good breed type, shown in glorious coat, excellent head, good strong neck, fitting into nicely laid shoulders, good angulation with good body proportions, strong well boned legs, correct shaped feet, excellent presentation, moved well in spite of her exuberance.

1 Dunk’s Bursville Summer Zizanna with Zalute, I’ve loved this girl from the minute I saw her when she was about 4 months old, loved her blaireau grey markings less common these days, she has the most beautiful head & expression, good pigmentation, tight mouth, almond shaped eyes, she’s balanced throughout with good curve of stifle, moved soundly with drive, just piped her sister in this class, two young ladies with a very bright future. CC & BOB to add to the two RCCs she’s previously won; 2 B Summer Fleur via S; 3 Burwell’s Shanlimore Phoebe at Bursville.
1 Baverstock Mizeka A Touch Of Class with Kalkasi, very pleasing in outline with a lovely moulded head of correct proportions & a sweet expression, good pigmentation, tight mouth, clean skull, correct shaped eyes, moved soundly, just wished there was a bit more of her. RCC.
