PD (2,0)

1. Shepherd’s Viskalys Hazuki for Avantgarde Naf Taf. Two six months pups challenged here, both showing promise for the future but of different types. The winner was good to go over and appealed for head and expression. He is nicely balanced with strong neck of correct length, firm topline, ribbed well back and rib developing nicely for age, slightly sloping rump and correct tail for length, set and carriage. Attractive head with minimal stop, dark almond-shaped eyes of correct set, ears set on level with eyes, correct dentition and nice dark pigmentation. Pleasing angles front and rear, just needs to broaden in front but has plenty of time on his side. Moving well in profile with good drive from the rear. Best Puppy.

2. Holmes’ Lisjovia Hurts Like Heaven. Another with so much to like. He is quite different in head, being somewhat heavier than the winner; dark expressive eyes, ears of correct size and set and nice dark pigmentation. He also presented a nice outline with neck of correct length, level topline, good length to ribcage, firm loin, slight slope to rump and tail of correct set. Moderately angulated, standing straight in front and firm muscular rear. Moving soundly on the go around and when viewed from the rear but another who needs to tighten in front.

 

JD (2,0)

1. Woodward’s Lisjovia Galactica. This 14 mth old was a comfortable winner in this class for me but unfortunately was unsettled by gun shots in a nearby field. He pleased for overall type, is nicely balanced, of good size and soundly constructed. Masculine headpiece yet free from any sign of coarseness, dark expressive eyes, ears of correct set, super pigmentation and correct dentition. Neck of correct length to balance, level topline, good depth to chest, good length to ribcage and rib developing well, muscular loin, slightly sloping rump and tail of correct length and set. Well made all though, he stands nice and straight in front on compact feet and is well muscled behind. Moving freely although not making the most of himself due to his unease.

2. Carter’s Jumicar Casanova. 16 mth of completely different type and out of a much larger mould. He pleased in head and expression with minimal stop, almond-shaped eyes of good colour and set, small ears set on with level of eyes, very nice pigmentation and good mouth. Strong neck of correct length, firm topline, nice depth to chest, firm loin and slightly sloping rump and tail of correct set and carriage. He is rather narrow in front right now and this affected his front movement, but he moves well enough on the go around. Super temperament.

 

PGD (4,0)

1. Edwards’ Shanlimore Lorenzo. This 2 yr old lad was good to go over and pleased for overall type and balance. He is far from mature but should go on to do very well. Strong neck of correct length, firm muscular topline, chest of good depth, muscular loin, correct slope to rump and tail good for set and carriage. Quality head with minimal stop, the very best of eyes, ears of correct set, strong muzzle of medium length, excellent pigmentation and correct dentition. Moderately angulated front and rear, straight well-boned forelegs, compact feet and muscular hindquarters with well developed thighs. Moving well in profile with excellent self carriage, nice and firm when going away and pretty good when coming at you. Well handled.

2. Woodward’s Lisjovia Galactica

3. Thorne’s Kricarno Konstellation at Pyrajay

 

LD (2,1)

1. Warbrick’s Lisjovia Tokyo Road. 2 yr old standing alone here but more than worthy of the win although he could have put in a little more enthusiasm on the move. He is all male, of good size, carrying nice bone and pleased to go over. Good neck, firm topline, nice deep chest, pleasing rib, muscular loin and slightly sloping rump and correct length and set of tail but not using it on the move. Quality head with very nice expression, dark almond-shaped eyes, small ears of correct set, minimal stop, super pigmentation, good mouth but looser lips than preferred. He stands straight in front on very nice feet and is well made behind with well developed thighs. Moving true.

 

OD (6,0)

1. Matisson, Sandstrom & Nagrecha’s Ch Vi'skaly's My Way Or No Way to Chandlimore (Imp Swe). Quality 4 yr old who greatly impressed to go over and certainly has the elegance and noble bearing called for in the breed standard. Not in full coat on the day but this really didn’t detract. He is beautifully balanced with clean neck of good length, firm level topline, good depth to brisket, well ribbed back, broad muscular loin, slight slope to rump and tail good for length, set and carriage. First class head and expression; minimal stop, the very best eyes and ears, strong muzzle of moderate length, excellent pigmentation and correct dentition. Well constructed all through, standing nice and straight in front on compact feet and firm, muscular hindquarters. He certainly didn’t disappoint on the move, driving well from the rear and using himself as he goes. CC & BOB and delighted to see that he ended the day by taking Group 3.

2. Reilly’s Ir Ch Lisjovia Boris Bear at Darmaror JW ShCM. 2 yr old of different type to the winner but another super boy who pushed 1 all the way. He scored for size and balance and pleased for type; all male, yet retaining the elegance of the breed. Strong neck of correct length, level topline, deep chest, excellent ribbing, muscular loin, slight slope to croup and tail good for length, set and carriage. His head is quite different to that of the winner but with an expression that still appealed; minimal stop, almond-shaped eyes of correct set, small ears set on level with the eyes, medium length of muzzle, good pigmentation and correct mouth. Another who is well made with moderate angles front and rear and moving out freely with excellent self carriage. RCC.

3. Holmes’ Ch Lisjovia Estevez

 

JB (7,2)

1. Baverstock’s Kalkasi Super Cool. I really liked the first three in this class and all should go on to have bright futures. The winner was this feminine girl of 14 mths. Super to go over and with the most attractive head and expression; minimal stop, excellent eye and ear, medium length of muzzle, nice dark pigmentation and correct dentition. Strong neck of correct length to balance, level topline, good depth to chest, well ribbed up, broad muscular loin and slight slope to rump with tail of good length, set and carriage. Moderate angles front and rear, straight well-boned forelegs, compact feet and firm muscular hindquarters. Moving freely with good drive from the rear. Presented in good coat and so well handled. Best Junior.

2. Pollard’s Gillandant Ophelia. This 13 mth old was another with so much to like and I see she shares the same sire as the class winner. Feminine throughout she presents a nicely balanced outline with good neck, level topline, good depth to brisket, ribbed well back and rib developing well for age, firm loin and slightly rounded croup and correct set on of tail. Quality head with pleasing proportions, minimal stop, dark almond-shaped eyes, ears of correct set, dark pigmentation and perfect dentition. She needs to develop in forechest but she has time on her side. Moving so well on the go around, driving from the rear and with good tail carriage.

3. Holmes’ Lisjovia Ottaviani

 

PGB (5,1)

1. Baverstock’s Kalkasi Super Cool

2. Holmes’ Lisjovia Ottaviani. 14 mth old who stood 3rd in the previous class. Somewhat out of coat but another youngster that I liked and was good to go over given her correct construction. She scored for outline and is good for size. Good neck, level topline, chest of good depth, rib developing nicely and extends well back, firm loin of good breadth, slightly sloping rump and tail of correct set and carriage. Moderate layback of shoulder, straight well-boned forelegs, compact feet and well muscled rear with moderate turn of stifle. Delightful head and expression with excellent eye and ear, correct stop, medium length of muzzle and super pigmentation. Moving freely with very nice carriage.

3. Bowker & Gibson’s Sajobein Gastons Girl avec Febus

 

LB (6,1)

1. Downes’ Febus Fleurac (AI). This was a particularly diverse class with a variety of different types present. This 18 mth girl was an easy winner for me appealing for overall type, size and outline. She pleased to go over and is nicely constructed all through with moderate angles front and rear, standing nice and straight in front on good feet and firm, muscular hindquarters. Quality headpiece with dark expressive eyes, slight stop, fairly small ears of correct set, moderate length to muzzle, dark pigmentation and correct mouth. Strong neck of correct length, topline rises slightly, good ribbing, muscular loin and correct croup and tail for set and carriage. Moving freely with drive from the rear and so very well handled.

2. Cochrane’s Pyroni Colours of the Wind for Myatoksci (Imp Can). 2 yr old of entirely different type to the winner and not in full coat on the day. She has to be gone over to be appreciated and is such a good bitch to go over. Strong neck of correct length to balance, level topline, well ribbed back, good depth to brisket, firm loin of good breadth, slight slope to rump and tail good for set and carriage. Attractive head with feminine expression; correct stop, super eye and ear, strong muzzle of medium length, excellent pigmentation and good mouth.

3. Flounders’ Sketrick Papagena at Lakamoni (AI)

 

OB (6,2)

1. Thorne’s Ch Belshanmish Pretty In Pink at Pyrajay ShCM. This was by far the best class of the day and all four girls present were a pleasure to go over, although somewhat differing types. After much consideration, the winner was this 5 yr old girl. She is feminine all through, beautifully balanced, so good to go over and of first class construction. Most attractive head and expression with minimal stop, dark almond-shaped eyes of correct set, fairly small ears set on the level with eyes, strong muzzle of medium length, the very best pigmentation and correct dentition. Neck of correct length to balance, firm level topline, broad chest of good depth, excellent ribbing, broad muscular loin, slightly sloping croup and tail good for length, set and carriage. Complementary angles front and rear, nice straight forelegs, compact feet and firm muscular hindquarters. Moving freely with excellent self carriage and tail carried curled above back. Quality coat and presentation. CC.

2. Pollard’s Gillandant Xmas Spice. 3 yr old of different type to the winner but a lovely feminine girl who was a delight to go over. He head and expression is just my cup of tea, ultra-feminine with correct skull, minimal stop, dark oval-shaped eyes, fairly small ears of correct set, nice dark pigmentation, close fitting lips and correct dentition. Strong neck of good length to balance, level topline, good depth to chest, nice spring of rib and ribcage extending well back, muscular loin of good breadth, correct slope to rump and tail of good set and length. Moderate layback of shoulder, straight well-boned forelegs, nice compact feet and firm muscular hindquarters with moderate turn of stifle.
