Veteran Dog or Bitch (3)
1st: BLACK Bassodon Dodecahedron JW Always a tough class to judge. Nice compact bitch, Super mouth and a lovely head . she moved soundly around the ring keeping her topline at all times. BV

 

2nd: KIRKWOOD-EMERY Helydon Jingelbells Similar remarks apply as the winner, both nice bitches and both had great outlines on the move. A little on the porky side today which cost her the class.

 

3rd: MALLISON Drakesleat Have a Yen for You
 

Minor Puppy Dog (2,1)
1st: HOWELLS Fallowmill Time Traveler A really nice little dog. Good head and expression. Nice reach of neck into well laid shoulders. Long ribbing and sound movement. Excellent coat and presented beautifully. Delighted to award him the RCC and BP

 

2nd: STEPHENSON Bothlyn Mr Zeus at Wistex. Well constructed young dog. Lovely head and correct eye shape . Good shoulders with well laid shoulders. He eventually settled for his handler but  lost out today on presentation and also slightly over weight.
 

Puppy Dog - NO ENTRIES
 

Junior Dog (1)
1st: BLACKBURN Stargang Plutonium Another nice dog with everything to like about him. This boy had an amazing coat and a super head. Good reach of neck into lovely shoulder placement. Good ribbing however a bit long and rather unsettled which on the move made him too low to ground. 
 

Yearling Dog (2)
1st: FULTON Bothlyn Trail Blaze A pleasing boy with good expression and fair reach of neck. Good ribbing lovely coat with a good texture. Really unsettled today, needs to be moved a bit quicker to appreciate his stride.


Post Graduate Dog (1)
1st: KIRKWOOD Beetlejuice Vitoraz At Helydon (Czech imp) A lovely dog to go over and surprisingly the correct weight. He moved really well with true masculine head however there was not enough spring of rib for me today.
 

Limit Dog (1)
1st: BLACK Bothlyn Back in Black Bassodon A lovely dog and everything to like about him .Good masculine head into nice shoulders. Great coat and tidy mover . Today he was more than a little over weight and was told after that heíd had a massive drink of milk before coming in the ring.

 

Open Dog (2)
1st: THORN-ANDREWS Drakesleat Gud Day Sunshine One of the few dogs that were under 11lbs. Although I made allowances many were more than 4ozs over. A lot to like about him , great head good reach of neck and excellent mover which gave him the edge over some of the other exhibits.


2nd: DANCE Emem Solar Power JW iíve always liked this dog from the ringside. Nice head, good shoulders and excellent ribbing covered by an excellent coat. Today he didnít move as Iíve seen him in the past as he was very erratic costing him a top award

 

Champion Dog (1,1)

1st Absent
 

Minor Puppy Bitch (2,1)
1st: RUSSELL Eyez One too Russteck A lovely puppy , nice head and excellent ribbing. Super jacket and strong hind quarters so moved with drive behind. Unliky to meet the puppy dog today.


Puppy Bitch (1)
1st: RUSSELL Eyez One too Russteck
 

Junior Bitch (1)
1st: RUSSELL Russteck Cordelia
 A compact bitch with a nice head and expression. Moved well both coming and going also had a lovely coat

 

Yearling Bitch (6,1)
1st: RUSSELL Russteck Cordelia

 

 

2nd: STEPHENSON Bothlyn Sweet Missy at Wistex.  Bit twee throughout for me and not being houndy in type enough. She could do with more reach of neck tp make her look more elegant. Very confident and out going.

3rd: MALLINSON Whipplei Deli Shush

 

Post Graduate Bitch (3)
1st: STEPHENSON Wistex Taking it Easy. Another confident happy bitch. Great coat and presented and handled to perfection. Lovely head good shoulders and kept her topline on the move. Only just beat the LB winner with that extra bit of ground clearance RCC


2nd: KIRKWOOD Helydon Quickstep Queeni Compact , well ribbed bitch  Moved well around the ring but would have preferred more ground clearance.

 

3rd: HOWELLS Fallowmill Miss Range Rover


Limit Bitch (2)
1st: RUSSELL Eyez the One Russteck A nice bitch with good overall outline. Fair head with a classic conical  Shape. Again excellent coat . moved well around the ring

 

 2nd: CLARKE & FULTON Jolanda Uptown Girl at Bothlyn. A nice shape when stood but had a slight rise when on the move. Could do with more forechest.

Open Bitch (5,1)
1st: BLACKBURN Ch Stargang Witches Shadow. I really liked this bitch and the two top places were a difficult decision. Great coat , lovely head and expression good reach of neck and nice long ribbing. She just wouldnít lift herself up on the move which made her too low to ground compared to the 2 winners.

 

2nd: DANCE Emem Letty Bee Sunshine JW A good compact bitch with everything in the right place , without exaggeration. Nice head well set ears and excellently presented. Didnít move so well today.

 

3rd: KIRKWOOD-EMERY Helydon Nifty Nairn JW

 

Res: RUSSELL & GRAHAM Sheez Got it Russteck

Champion Bitch (1)
1st: THORN-ANDREWS Ch Drakesleat Too Gud to be True A beautiful bitch that strode around the confident maintaining an excellent topline. Lovely head, correct shoulders and good length of ribs. Lovely underline , just lovely to watch going around CC and BOB.
