PD 1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Takahashi. 11 months old, looks a picture standing, good for size & balance, his head is just fabulous & just so typy. Masculine, well placed ears, good skull, good dark eye with super expression, he’s well made in front with good bone & feet, he has a well muscled rear & in good coat, correct tail. he has a certain elegance about him that I really liked. BP; 2 Flounders’ Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas at Lakamoni, just 10 months & giving bit away on maturity on the day, but he is a lovely lovely dog with a super head, eye & ear, well angulated in front, good bone & correct rib, very strong well made rear with correct tail length & carriage. In full coat. Two really super puppies.
1 O’Loughlin’s Shiresoak Sitric, has a very handsome head, dark eye & correctly set ears, reachy neck, strong topline & he is a good size too. He is well muscled all through but as yet lacks maturity & balance & was not a sound as I would have liked; 2 Flounders’ Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas at Lakamoni, attractive & well up to size & in good coat & condition, nice boy but needs time.
1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle, right for size & overall proportions, lovely masculine head, strong enough to proclaim his sex but not in any way common. Good dark expressive eye, correctly shaped & carried ears, strong straight front with good bone, strong topline & totally correct tail, deep rib & well angled front & rear, sound & very stylish moving; 2 Thompson’s Aurealis Okenite, fairly well balanced skull & muzzle, good eye, he is sound with breed type, would like a better topline; 3 Nelson’s Gillandant Sensationalist.
1 Tadd’s Jacko Du Haras De Chante Neige avec Kricarno, eyecatching dog who is right for size & balanced all through. His head is quite textbook, with balance of skull & length & width of muzzle, dark well shaped expressive eyes, correct ears, good neck, totally correct in front, deep rib with forechest, so lacking in so many today. Correct in topline & he has a strong well muscled rear with correct angulation & correct tail placement & carriage, he is sound any which way & was a joy to watch. In grand coat. CC & BOB; 2 Mattisson, Sandstrom & Nagrecha’s Viskalys My Way Or No Way to Chandlimore, another really lovely dog, who in my opinion is so good for type, size, substance & balance, he scored in head, front, neck, topline & tail, good rib & he is very sound & stylish on the move, & in lovely coat. RCC, pushed the winner hard on the day & I suspect they will change places on another day; 3 Downes’ Pyrpressure’s My American Dream at Belshanmish.

PB & JB (0).
Thompson’s Aurealis Angel, stood alone, but very feminine & with good type, lovely head, eye & ear, sound in front & rear, good deep rib & forechest, strong topline & good bone, very sound moving girl who needs more time to mature & develop more, & perhaps grow a coat?
1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Kiyonari, very lovely bitch with the most feminine head, which is so well balanced in skull & muzzle, dark well shaped eyes, correct ears, good neck, correct front with good angles, deep rib & strong topline, nicely muscled all through with correct tail carriage, sound & stylish mover, I would like to see her carrying just a bit more weight over her back to finish her off. Nevertheless delighted to award her the CC; 2 Downes’ Pyrpressure’s My American Charm at Belshanmish, attractive head, good solid body, scored in neck & topline, & she is relatively sound in front, however she was not very happy today & didn’t want to be shown.
