BORDER UNION CH SHOW 2016

Judge  JENNY WEETCH

Thanks to my efficient, agile & humorous stewards who made my job very easy in the face of a strong wind & flying paperwork!

A number of the dogs had dirty teeth. When I started this with mine it wasn’t popular but brushing once every three days makes a huge difference.

PD (2) 1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Takahashi, 7 months blaireau. Mature lad with correct head though slightly deep muzzle. Very well constructed with strong neck, level topline & good angulation fore & aft. In good coat & beautifully presented. Moved with drive though a bit close behind. One to watch. BP & PG4; 2 Flounders Granchester Vindicator, 11 months & very much at the ‘teenage’ stage. Head proportions fair but with a little too much stop & flews a bit loose. His front is not his fortune & is rather narrow, affecting his stance & movement.  Looked rather rangy but time should rectify this.
JD
(2) 1 Kenyon Ward & Bermingham’s Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna, 15 months old. Correct head, though flews a little loose.  Lovely eye & dark pigment, strong neck & level topline & well-boned without being heavy. Good angulation & moved smoothly & with drive.  Very out of coat so didn’t look his best; 2 G Vindicator.
LD
(2) 1 Nelson’s Gillandant Sensationalist, typical & attractive head, with strong neck & good topline. Lovely expression coming from eye shape & colour. Well-laid shoulder & good angulation.  Moved soundly coming & going; 2 Holmes’ Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle, very attractive head but a shade heavy. Well constructed all through with good bone. Moved soundly & easily but a bit close behind.
OD
(2) Two nice dogs.
1 Kenyon & Ward’s Ch Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna, correct head with nice dome, & good eye shape & colour. Lovely sooty pigment.  Plenty of bone but no sign of coarseness.  Looked good standing & kept his topline on the move which he did smoothly and with drive. Beautifully presented.  CC & BOB; 2 Bowker & Gibson’s Ch Febus Mauvezin, very attractive & correct head with good pigment, beautiful eye & stop. Slightly lighter boned than 1, but still looked strong.  Well angulated & moved well but very fast. RCC.
VD
(1) 1 Pollard’s Gillandant Midnight Legacy, looks great for his age. Correct head with well-shaped eye & dark pigment. Strong neck & well-laid shoulder. Moved soundly. Feet could be tighter.

PB (0).
JB
(1) 1 Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham’s Charibere Simply A Dream at Chezanna, not a heavily boned girl, but elegant.  Lovely feminine head, good neck & shoulder placement & level topline.  Flowed around the ring. RCC.
LB
(2,1) 1 Wright’s Delasara Mamma Mia, another out of coat & appearing rather rangy.  Fair head but her chest is narrow, affecting her stance & front movement. Feet could be tighter.
OB
(0).
VB
(2,1) 1 Pollard’s Ch Gillandant Sugar And Spice, in very good order for her age, & with a presence in the ring.  Excellent coat & presentation. She is well-boned but elegant, with a strong neck & level topline, held on the move, & with excellent angulation giving her reach & drive. CC.
