I would like to extend my thanks to the committee for their hospitality, and to my steward for such a good job. Most importantly i would like to extend the very best of ‘Get Well Wishes’ to Edna Cooper (Sontag) who was unable to continue with this appointment.
For the Judge it is never an easy task to officiate over someone else’s entry, and for the exhibitor even more frustrating when they have not got the right type on the day or not entered the dogs they would have entered.
To all of you, I would like to extend my thanks for your patience and participation; I was pleasantly surprised by the improvement in this variety since my last appointment, and really enjoyed judging your mini smooth’s.
On a downside I did have a couple of dirty mouths, and two seriously overweight exhibits but no cause for any welfare or health conditions.
Minor Puppy Dog – 5/0
1st Kent’s Lokmadi A Boy Named Sue, blk and tan just 6 mths old, superb type throughout, excellent head and eye, underline and topline level, sound mover. RCC & BPD
2nd Blackburn’s Stargang Tiger Feet, blk and tan brindle, very similar to winner, just needs to steady on the move, excels in his hind quarters.
3rd Jones Radclyffe Xteal
4th Lokmadi Bingo Little Of Santorna
5th Carpaccio Mr Selfridge Of Robinswood
Puppy Dog – 2/0
1st Paget & Carroll’s Bronia Valente or Marvale, black and tan, lacks in upper arm and bend of stifle.
2nd Phillips’s Arbennik St Thomas Of Robinswood, taller type, needs more training, nice head, but moves wide behind.
Junior Dog – 4/1
1st Smith & Connor’s Bronia Gregorio, now this dog caught my eye when he came in, lovely size boy of excellent quality, hard and muscular at one with his owner/handler, excellent front assembly, topline and underline, unfortunately I was disappointed when he moved.
2nd Shutt’s Shantalla Spiced Up For Donnadoon, choc and tan, lovely shape this boy although a little heavy in front assembly, superb second thigh, high tail set, needs to settle on the move.
3rd Prothcoe’s Grandgables Crafty Lil Devil At Royalmaples.
Post Graduate Dog 2/1
1st Jones’s Cwmdarhian Super Trooper, handled by one of favourite future handers, lovely type, excellent front and shoulders, good depth to body.
Limit Dog 7/4
1st Daykin’s Barratini Johnny Cash, This boy caught my eye when he came into this class, he excels in soundness both fore and aft, good tight elbows, shoulders and upper arm, he has superb feet, with a good length to his ribbing which won him the CC today, his second! I am sure number three isn’t far away.
2nd Muggleton’s Mosiarto Mister Motivator, well-constructed black and tan, moved well, good hind quarters and tail set.
Open Dog 4/2
1st Muggleton’s Mosiarto Mister Big, red dog, moves well, with a level topline, underline, his quarters are well made with a good tail set, nice head and expression to top it all off.
2nd Melbourne’s Metadale Nikolai At Melriding, a picture stacked, but overdone in the chest which resulted in a lack of forward reach.
Veteran D/B 2/0
1st Reed’s Deercroft Devotion JW – 8.5 yr old red Bitch, I have admired before, excellent overall construction, very feminine, moves well.
2nd Kent’s Bensarka Too Darned Hot For Lokmadi – 9.5 yr old red Bitch, very similar all through to winner, a credit to her owner as is superb condition.
Minor Puppy Bitch 12/5
1st Blackburn’s Stargang Tiger Tattoo, red brindle, my notes say absolutely stunning all through, she captivated me with her superb angles all through, and only just six months, delighted to hear afterwards that I had made up her grandmother. This is one to watch out for. RCC, BPB & BPIB.
2nd Price’s Brianolf Pink Sapphire with Samlane, another 6 mth old, showing like a little trooper, excellent front assembly, good hind quarters, excellent length to her ribbing with a good strong topline.
3rd Muggleton’s Mosiarto Miss Minimum
4th Stokes, Webbers Swansong
5th Shutt’s, Stargang Tiger Lily of Donnadoon
Puppy Bitch 9/1
1st Blackburn-Bennetts Wyndsmoor Twinkled To Stargang, black and tan brindle, 9 mths, super type and shape, excellent depth and underline is good, superb rear, good feet, lovely head and eye, unfortunate to meet the MPB winner.
2nd Kents, Lokmadi Goodnight Irene, low to ground, very similar in type, so same remarks apply but not quite as feminine in head as the winner.
3rd Salisbury’s Brocklewood Black Rose
4th Paget & Carroll’s, Bronia Vittoria Of Marvale
5th Williams & Moes, Cwmdarhian Nero Amore
Junior Bitch 7/0
1st Blackburn’s Stargang Desert Vixen, elegant my notes say, super hind quarters, lovely head and eye, ultra feminine with super feet.

3rd Muggleton’s Mosiarto Miss Understood
4th Reed’s, Deercroft Spring Promise
5th Paget & Carrolls, Stargang Silver Star At Marvale

5th Hughes’s Julidachs Jocasta

2nd Blackburn’s Stargang Morning Glow, taller type, good strong angles and movement.
3rd Daykin’s Barratini Margo
4th Melbourne’s Melriding Berengaria
5th Callow’s Garthorne Little Eva
Open Bitch 7/1
1st Winchurch’s Brianolf Opalite, 75/25 ratio red of supreme quality, lovely head, eye and feet, good layback and upper arm, excellent length to her ribbing, excellent hind quarters showing as she moves with forward reach and drive. Thank You for bringing her. CC & BOB.
