Thank you to the Officers and Committee for the honour of judging both Smooth Haired and Miniature Smooth Haired at their show held in conjunction with WKC Championship show.  Being third in the ring, thanks to the exhibitors for staying and for the magnificent combined entry of 98. Especial thanks to my very hard working steward Jane Howells for her support and company.

Miniature Smooth Haired

Minor Puppy Dog 5,2

1.      Hanney-Mitchell’s Bronia Chayce. This eye-catching 7 month old is nicely put together and well balanced all through.  Conical head and dark well shaped eyes.  Excellent for shoulder placement and depth of brisket. Lengthy rib cage, secure back line. Impressive when moving, especially his rear drive which gave the edge over 2. BPD, BPIB and Best Puppy In Show.

2.      Paget & Carroll’s Marvale Firecrest. Another with a classic head shape and attractive eyes. Good for overall balance and size. Lengthy neck. Correct backline. Presented in excellent coat and condition. Very promising and lots to like.

3.      Downie’s Marvale Kingfisher

Puppy Dog 2,1

1.      Cross & Black’s Riowood Red Boots. 10 months. Balanced head with correct eye shape giving an attractive expression. Lengthy neck, backline firm, ribbing carried well back. Well angulated stifles. Moved steadily.

Junior Dog 4,1

1.      Jennings’s Marvale A Royal Affair. Red. 14 months old.  Already possesses a masculine head and is well made. Prominent chest. Correct shoulders. OK for ribbing. Neat front with elbows close in all aided an impressive forehand. Full, broad feet. Tail well set and held correctly on the move.  

2.      Halsall’s Lindella’s Tonka Toy. 14 months. Head is balanced, good dentition and ear placement. Clean across withers nicely angulated, muscled hindquarters. Moved steadily.

3.      Bullis’s Amaffrey Jessie James

Post Graduate Dog 3,1

1.      Dalton’s Llansansior’s Mr Cinaman. 18 months.  Admired his overall type and shape. Well-developed front with full thorax. Good for bone and substance.  Well sprung rib cage,  carried well back.  Held a secure backline on the move. OK rear angulations and hocks. Excellent feet.

2.      Jennings’s Marvale Northern Carnival At Jenivon. Shaded red. 18 months.  Attractive balanced masculine head of good proportions and finish. Lengthy neck and good for fore chest. Super padded feet. Occasionally moved a tad wide going away.

Limit 4, 1

1.      Mason’s Teckeltown Masterpiece JW. Red 22 months. Impressive outline when standing being exceptionally well balanced with correct angulations. Conical shaped head containing dark well placed appealing eyes.  Good length of sternum, correct balance of upper and lower arms. Well ribbed. He produced sound, eye catching movement which secured this win.

2.      Strange’s Stargang Magic Alfie Moon. Balanced head but very different to 1. Well set lengthy neck above well angulated shoulders. Well filled in front with depth of keel. Neck well set into well placed shoulders. Good for top and underline. Great feet. Moved well.

3.      Band & McCarthy’s Carpaccio Red Alert For Essandsee

Open 5

1.      Anderson & Peel’s Ch Clentry Donnie Darco. A very impressive mature 3 year old who certainly caught my eye.  Super type and quality. Masculine well balanced head. Well set lengthy neck flowing into clean well laid shoulders. Correct  front with good depth, prominent sternum, super ribbing.  On the move he has reach and drive which just demands attention. Presented in excellent muscular condition. BD & BOB

2.      Mason’s Teckeltown Something Magic JW. 3 year old, B/T dog who was impressive on the move. Loved his conformation which aids free, correct  positive action coupled with excellent drive from behind. Balanced masculine head with correct eye. Well-developed sternum and ribs well back. Close call between two top quality males. RBD.

3.      Gentle’s Dimogen Stargazer

Minor Puppy Bitch 5,2

1.      De Lacy’s Mabeldax Festive Wish. 7 months old and very feminine with a quality balanced head. Lengthy reach of neck.  Well-developed ribbing and good depth of Keel. Strong hindquarters. Can get a tad excitable with her tail carriage.  Correct length of upper and lower arm all contributed to precise, accurate movement which, at present, just topped the edge over 2. BPB

2.      Hanney-Mitchell’s Bronia Clarrise. Another very promising youngster with a quality head and good reach of neck. Excellent lay back of shoulder. Well-shaped rib cage, strong loins. Nicely angulated hindquarters with width. Moved steadily.

3.      Roberts & Smith’s Rayol Bohemian Rapsody

Junior Bitch 12,2

Quality Class

1.      Mason’s Collidach Hot Springs At Teckletown. Quality brindle of 17 months. Produces quite a striking profile. Appealing, balanced head with correct bite. Lengthy neck, well set. Deep chest and forequarters well set and angulated. Secure backline with tail well set. Moved with accuracy and precision.

2.      Jennings’s Jenivons Miss Marple. Red. Another impressive youngster. Beautifully  balanced head. Super for eyes and finish. Good dentition. Lengthy strong neck. Secure level back line held on the move.  Good for ribbing and front assembly. She was a tad shy but at 13 months she still has time and with confidence will trouble the best.

3.      Gentle’s Carpaccio Crystal Diva

Post Graduate Bitch 10,3

1.      Mason’s Teckeltown Lady In Red. Particularly impressive both standing and on the move.  She is clearly well put together. Presented in super coat and condition. Good length of sternum and ribbing. Very attractive feminine head which is balanced and in proportion. Super front legs and correct feet. Correctly balanced rear angulations. She moved beautifully.

2.      Beer’s Stargang Frankly Magic At Lowrider. Another attractive, feminine bitch possessing many breed attributes to admire. Excellent shape and balance both standing and on the move. When splitting hairs I just thought that today 1 had the edge in forehand, but I liked her a lot.

3.      Dalton’s Llansansior’s Miss Cupcake

Limit Bitch 8,1

1.      Roberts & Smith’s Sonorra Ginger Snap For Rayol.  23 months old. Feminine head giving typical expression.  Appealing outline and proportions.  Well-constructed forequarters produced impressive reach and strong rear hindquarters, strong drive. In a close call this, ultimately, gave her the class over 2.  RBB.

2.      Mason’s Teckeltown You’re The One JW. B/T. This mature 4 year old also produces an admirable profile. Developed sternum with excellent ribbing; short strong loins. Elegant and accurate on the move.

3.      De Lacy’s Gellijam’s Midnight lady Of Mableldax

Open Bitch 5

1.      Jennings’s Melriding Natasha At Jenivon. 2 years old and so very impressive.  Well-constructed throughout. Head is impressively balanced, containing dark almond eyes giving such a beautiful expression. Lengthy neck, great lay of shoulder, deep brisket and goodly length of ribbing complimented by well angulated hindquarters. She is an accurate, confident mover which has an air of arrogance with it.  The message is clear ‘Look at me’. I did!  BB & Reserve BOB.

2.      Scott’s Wolferlow Blackberry Pie.4 years. Another impressive one I really admired. Balanced head with a lengthy neck flowing into well angulated shoulders. Mature shapely body which is well bodied and ribbing well back. Strong, balanced hindquarters aided sound, honest movement. I fully appreciate disappointment but respectfully suggest unnecessary comments are best not shared with the judge.

3.      Rose’s Ardenrun Foolish Whisper At Rosencrantz.
