2nd WALTERS Ch Ralines Party Politics
Although a numerically small entry, the overall level of quality of conformation was good. Most dogs were correctly proportioned with only a handful of overly long ones. Short ribbing and keels with correspondingly long loins were sadly much in evidence, as were flat feet. Some appeared out of balance, with hindquarters higher than their forequarters, although they had reasonable angulation. Several dogs would benefit from more exercise to improve muscle tone and a few also needed to carry more body condition. A few were not in their best coat either. I also found several slightly nervous dogs, although I was able to handle all of them on the table. All mouths were correct but some had dirty teeth, unfortunately. Movement was generally good, however, it is very difficult to assess hind action moving away due to profuse feathering on the back legs in this variety. My co-judge, Mandy Dance and I were in complete accord when deciding the final awards.
Minor Puppy Dog (1)
1st Cox’s Dolyharp Fidelio
Shaded cream with pleasing outline, moving and showing with confidence. Well proportioned head with dark, correctly shaped eye. Well angulated in fore and hindquarters, although he is a little higher behind at the moment in stance and profile movement. Parallel action up and back. Good bone and substance throughout.
Puppy Dog (3, 1 abs)
1st Mitchell’s Bronia Maverick
Compact cream with high quality conformation. Attractive head with dark eye, carried proudly on good length of neck. Correctly placed shoulders and good length of upper arm. Well boned with good substance and spring of rib. Well angulated hindquarters. Stands true in front and behind and moves with parallel action out and back, holding his outline in profile. Presented in beautiful condition. Best Puppy in Breed.
2nd Phillips’ Pettigans Bring Me Sunshine
Longer bodied red of different type. Pleasing masculine head and expression. Not quite the quality of forequarter construction of the 1st, being slightly shorter in upper arm and turning front feet out slightly. Good overall body shape and hind angulation. Needs a little bit more confidence to make the best of himself. Moved freely in profile, but slightly close in front coming towards me.
Junior Dog (6, 1 abs)
1st Wood’s Wildstar Washington
Impressive rich red with immediate impact viewed on the move where he covers the ground with an effortless, long stride and parallel action up and back. He is correctly proportioned with good ground clearance. Elegant overall outline with attractive head and expression. Good reach of neck flowing into correctly placed shoulders and has pleasing length of upper arm and forechest. Well angulated hindquarters complete the picture. Really comes into his own on the move and put on a good performance in the 3 classes he was entered in to take the dog CC. Just lacked maturity against his kennel mate in the challenge for Best of Breed.
2nd McCarthy’s Nagshall Dyce The Ice
Quality cream of different type to 1st, being slightly longer in body. Pleasing overall outline and has good angulation in both fore and hindquarters. Attractive, masculine head with dark eye of correct shape. In good coat and condition. Moved well in profile, holding his topline, but didn’t quite have the length of stride of the winner. Good bone, substance and feet. Should have a bright future.
3rd Phillips’ Fallingwater Good Friday
Yearling Dog ((3)
1st Wood’s Wildstar Washington
2nd Phillips’ Fallingwater Good Friday
Up from 3rd in Junior. Red with pleasing head and expression. Couldn’t quite match the quality of forequarter construction of 1st, however he has good hind angulation and holds his topline well in profile movement. Correct coat which is not too profuse.
3rd McCarthy’s Nagshall The Odd Reason
1st McCarthy’s Nagshall Dyce The Ice
No entries in Graduate and Post Graduate Dog
Limit Dog (3)
1st Poole’s Findowrie Mister Mckye
Compact, correctly proportioned shaded read of pleasing type. Masculine head carried proudly on the move. Has good angulation in fore and hindquarters and is well balanced. Good bone and substance throughout and moves freely in profile with parallel action up and back and a good length of stride.
2nd Wallace’s Ralines Just Jiles
Longer-bodied red with good head, eye, reach of neck and topline. Has a good overall outline, with firm topline, held on the move viewed in profile. Good overall quality of conformation. Well presented and in good coat and condition. I just preferred the more compact outline of 1st, however it was a close decision.
3rd McCarthy’s Nagshall Dutch Odyssey
Open Dog (4)
1st Wood's Wildstar Washington
2nd Hall’s Cliffmere Woodman
I see this quality red has the same sire as my CC winner and is very similar in type, overall outline and conformation. Attractive head with correctly shaped dark eye. Good reach of neck flows smoothly into well laid shoulders. Firm topline and well angulated hindquarters complete the picture. Strode out freely with good length of stride and moved correctly up and back. Not quite in as good coat as the winner. Reserve CC.
3rd Scott’s Zarcrest Flash Gordon At Gellijam
SUE SEATH (Judge)
My thanks to the committee for their kind invitation to judge at this friendly show. Thanks too to my stewards who kept the ring well organised, and to the ladies who prepared the lovely lunch. I am grateful to the exhibitors for bringing their girls to show today and I appreciate their entries, without which I would have been rather lonely! I was pleased with the weights of exhibits as only one was 12lbs and a couple were just an ounce or two over the eleven which didn’t bother me at all as they were well covered. Just one exhibit was thin and she was nowhere near the weight and so I’m guessing she runs lean? Mouths were all correct save for one that was level and one where the lower canines were running up. However many had dirty teeth which I was surprised about this being a beauty show. Some had nails too long which not only look ugly but spoil the feet which is a shame. The majority were presented in good condition although some coats were either sparse or too curly and some were too prolific. Obviously coats are transient but when two exhibits are close up these small details do count. That being said I thoroughly enjoyed my appointment and I was delighted with my winners. My co judge, Sue Seath sorted the boys before I arrived and it was quite amazing that we both chose such similar animals resulting in amicable decisions when we had to liaise.
1st Weston and Johnson. Ecotyne Firewitch. 9 years old and carrying a good body covered with a Black and Tan flat coat. Head well balanced, good front and tight feet. Elbows well tucked in and top line held on the move. She went on to win best veteran in show.
Minor Puppy 1/0
1st Phillips and Belhurst. Fallingwater Faberge naf. Just 6 months red baby. Pleasing head and eye with good bone and feet. Elbows need to tighten and needs more confidence, but well covered and good movement.
1st Mitchell. Bronia Chaka Khan 10 month old cream best puppy bitch. Lost BP to her brother as he was just a tad more mature. Cream of super size and balance. Lovely head and well constructed throughout. Moved with confidence and precision. What a fab litter this must have been!
2nd Shutt. Donna soon Oh My Diana. Choc and tan just coming up a year. A dainty well balanced girl with a good front and well ribbed. Out of coat today and I just preferred the head and bone of the winner. Still a worthy placing in a good class.
3rd Small. Kenzduo Monday Mojito at Devondax
1st Mitchell. Bronia Day Dreamer Very similar to the puppy winner for type. Shaded cream with good height to length balance. Head, eye, feet and bone all good. Well ribbed back and moved keeping a correct outline.
2nd Phillips and Belhurst. Fallingwater Farouche. Very dark red small and dainty. Good neck and top line. Moved well. Just preferred balance of one as two could have been a shade longer for preference.
3rd McCarthy. Nagshall I’m So Dizzy
1st Butler. Ch Minard out of the Darque from Drymoor JW Stood away in this class. B/T just rising 2 years. Mature with super attitude and head carriage. Good top line kept at all times, correct height to length balance. Lovely feet and bone. Very worthy title holder.
2nd McCarthy. Nagshall Mystic Oddysey Red girl of overall good size and make. Moved well in profile and up and back. Lost to winner on feet and I preferred front in one. 3rd
Poole. Findowrie Jessica Rose
1st N I’m so Dizzy Cream just a tad too long for complete balance. Held a better top line than second. Good show girl with attitude I liked. Pleasing head, eye and expression.
2nd Tavener. Brackenfire my Honeybee B/T of better length than winner but she was losing her top line today. Pretty head and enough neck. Still showed well though.
Post Grad 4/0
1st Larden. Bronia Red Ruby Good body and condition so forgave three ounces over as unimportant. Didn’t stack well but came into her own on the move where her lovely shape was evident. Better neck and front than second. Needs a little more training at the stack.
2nd Phillips. Summerview Holly Would Another red girl of overall quality. Her coat detracts over the withers. Just preferred the overall balance of first but she is a quality exhibit who moves well. Good bone and feet.
3rd Hall. Cliffmere Edith
Limit 6/1 Super class of quality girls. Will change places I’m sure.
1st Wood. Wildstar Wrolanda CC and Bob in conjunction with my co judge. Gorgeous red girl with every attribute you could want. In super condition and coat. Lovely head and eye, front correct and neck of good length. Beat two on slightly tighter elbows and a shade more forechest. Held her top line on the stack and on the move. Loved her proud head carriage and determined profile movement. Very pleased to reward her with top honours today.
2nd Worswick. Dolyharp Sonatina. Called back to challenge for reserve cc and only just lost out as I preferred the overall profile picture of the champion class winner. Cream girl with pretty head and good construction. Overall balance height to length good. A cliche to say unfortunate to meet the winner, but in this case it is true. Had both back on the table but felt one had slightly better elbow and front.
3rd Cox. Cheritondax Chardonnay JW
1st Cox. Dolyharp Sweet Harmony Red with pretty head and expression. Slightly longer than second but still correct in the one to two height to length ratio. Could have a shade more forechest to be critical but a classy girl who moved out well keeping a good outline.
2nd Whitfield-Roberts. Dandydayo She Lives in You. Dainty red girl of quality. Loved her attitude and movement. Top line and ribbing good. Feet and front very good. Just needed some coat to complete the picture but a lovely exhibit.
3rd Mason. Tolberg Beez Kneez at Teckletown.
1st Ch Wildstar Wrivera. Reserve CC Dark red balanced beauty. Well made all through and showed her quality. Not a lot between her and her kennel mate today but just preferred the movement of the younger girl on the day. Type and balance excellent most worthy title holder.
-2nd Walters. Ch Ralines Party Politics Beautifully balanced girl who has all the attributes you want. Unfortunately left her clothes at home today and had to pay the price!
