PMDC of Scotland (Open Show) 1st October 2016

Judge  Rachael Meakin

I would like to thank Eileen and the committee for inviting me to judge at this show. It was a lovely friendly show and all the competitors were very good sports and made the day very enjoyable. It was a pleasure to go over some very nice dogs, which were all beautifully turned out. Thank you to the competitors who both helped and assisted each other in the ring.

 

Veteran Dog 1 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Gillandant Sensationalist - Mrs N Nelson

Well boned 7 year old male. Correct bite. Correctly proportioned head with nice expression. Level top line. A bit upright in the shoulder and would prefer more rear angulation. Moved well for age. Good coarse coat.


 

Puppy Dog 3 Entered. 0 Absent.

Three very different dogs. A hard decision.

1st Lisjovia Takahashi - Miss L Holmes

10 month old male. Nice front. Correct bite. Level top line. Moved well. Coarse coat. Good angulation, front and rear. Light blaireau markings. Settled on movement. Well presented, gave a polished performance.

2nd Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas At Lakamoni - Mr M Flounders

A finer dog than 1st. Lovely expression. Good front. Top line a little scooped. Crook in tail. Once settled, moved well. Bit close behind.

3rd Flickorna Robert The Bruce - Miss J Weir


 

Junior Dog 3 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Lisjovia Takahashi - Miss L Holmes

2nd Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas At Lakamoni - Mr M Flounders

Novice Dog 2 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas At Lakamoni - Mr M Flounders

A bigger boned dog than 1st. First show. A little unsettled. Good angulation front and rear. Crook in tail. Good coarse coat. Correct bite. Good pigmentation. A big boy.

 

Graduate Dog 2 Entered. 1 Absent.

1st Lisjovia Takahashi - Miss L Holmes


 

Postgraduate Dog 2 Entered. 1 Absent.

1st Aurealis Merlinite - Mrs K Thompson

Tall, leggy dog. A little more stop than I would like. Correct eye colour and shape. Good dark pigmentation. Unsettled. Nice crook in the tail. Level top line and nice coat. Very good angulation, however when moving was crossing over feet at the back. Longer in the body than others. This dog needs time to mature. Well muscled.

 

Limit Dog 2 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Aurealis Okenite - Mrs K Thompson

Attractive with blaireau markings. Dark pigmentation. Again a finer dog than 2nd, but moved out better than 2nd. Lovely coarse coat and well angulated. Nice tight feet. Another dog which needs time to mature and is well muscled.

2nd Gillandant Sensationalist - Mrs N Nelson


 

Open Dog 3 Entered. 0 Absent.

Again three very different dogs.

1st Gillandant Shakeelah - Miss S Greenfield

Good pigmentation. Moved well and with enthusiasm. Good angulation front and back. Good eye shape. Correct bite. Good correct coarse coat. Nice tight feet. Preferred head of the 3.

2nd Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle JW ShCM - Miss L Holmes

Heavier in the head than 1st and slightly more stop. A bigger dog. Great crook in the tail. Nice coarse tail and again good angulation front and rear. Well boned. Well presented.

3rd Aurealis Okenite - Mrs K Thompson


 

Veteran Bitch 1 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Ch Gillandant Crystal Fantasy - Miss S Greenfield

10 year old bitch. Moved very well for her age. Pretty head. Well boned. Level top line, held on the move. Nice coat. A little on the heavier side, but really good for age. Angulation good.

 

Graduate Bitch 2 Entered. 0 Absent.

1st Lisjovia Kiyonari - Miss L Holmes

Nice head shape. Good pigmentation. Correct proportions. Well angulated. Great crook in the tail. Nice coat. Level topline. Moved out well.


 

2nd Daveangel Reddest Ruby - Miss C Fegus

Lovely expression. Needs a bit darker pigmentation. Well angulated. Blaireau. Pretty. Top line a little dropped. Nearly 2 years old. Both dog and owner could benefit from some ringcraft classes.

 

Postgraduate Bitch 3 Entered. 1 Absent.

1st Lisjovia Kiyonari - Miss L Holmes

2nd Daveangel Reddest Ruby - Miss C Fegus

 

Limit Bitch 3 Entered. 1 Absent.

1st Lisjovia Kiyonari - Miss L Holmes


 

2nd Capyrmount Mississippi - Miss J Weir

3 years old. Lovely pigmentation. Level top line. Could not assess movement as she was unhappy at being in the ring. Close behind and back feet turning out, could be due to the concern at being in the ring.

 

Open Bitch 3 Entered. 1 Absent.

1st Ch Gillandant Crystal Fantasy - Miss S Greenfield

2nd Capyrmount Mississippi - Miss J Weir

 

Brace

1st Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle JW ShCM/ Lisjovia Takahashi

These two dogs moved in sync with each other. Two lovely dogs, made a nice brace together.

Went well together. An attractive couple. Bitch moved better with her house mate. Well handled. (Sorry, cannot find a picture)
