It is a while since I last  judged this variety and I was delighted to see such an improvement in many  areas within the breed. Temperament has always been important to me and apart  from one or two the majority were sound and stood their ground. Mouths were  good as were ribcages and the majority had good movement. Most were in good  condition apart from one notable exception and only a few had dirty teeth and  over long nails. Bearing in mind the maxim; 'Fit for Function', I was looking  for an unexaggerated dog with enough forechest but not overdone and one who had  sufficient ground clearance to do the job he was bred for. Obviously it is  going to take a while for this to filter through, but there was evidence that  some kennels have already taken this on board and are trying to breed a more  balanced dog who isn't dragging on the floor or falling over his forechest. I  found it difficult to judge strictly to type as they varied so much but I  rewarded what I considered to be healthy, good looking dogs who had some attitude  and nobility.

(3) 1 & Res CC Cooper's Kochanas Celebration Of  Hacienda At Sontag. Shapely 10 month old B/T. He was a little apprehensive on  the table but not overly so and on the ground he was confident to approach.  Good sound movement and he kept his topline at all times. Handsome head. Well  off for bone. Gleaming condition. Promising. 2 Starkey's Carpaccio Jasper For  Hamoura. Six month baby and it showed. B/T of good make and shape. He is what  he is, a young puppy, but will develop in time. 3 Cox, Cobo & Fellows'  Ralines Dark Knight. Sadly lame today.

(3) 1 Ellis' Tealby Red  Between The Lines. Beat two on up and down movement, having more drive and  being more positive in front. Topline was ok but can firm a little with more  muscle. Lovely head, but a little overdone in front for me. 2 Wand's Rakish  Paddy. Left the ring before the critique. 3 Goad's Thundergay Midnight Cowboy.

(5) 1 Marsh's Marshwick Raincloud. Compact B/T of smaller size. Beat two on  movement and muscle tone. Not too overdone in front. Level topline with rise  over loin. Confident. 2 Jesse & Jordan's Rill Scaramouche. Carrying a  little too much weight and therefore lacked a little muscle tone. Could show  more verve and enthusiasm in his showing. 3 Jones' Hampdach Who Made Who For  Adnerb.

(5) 1 Jeffrey's Carpaccio Summer Class At Andax Sh.CM. Mature  B/T who out moved two. Showed with verve and style. Strong well muscled not  overdone in front and kept a level topline. Would prefer a shade more ground  clearance for preference. 2 Furber's Gameron Smart Choice To Dorysa. Shapely  exhibit with very good temperament. Pity his handler could not move him a  little faster to get the best out of him. 3 Armstrong's Lauralee Galileo.  Really liked but sadly a little anxious.

(5) 1 & CC Hunt's  Cwmdarhian Hogan's Hero At Carpaccio. B/T of big enough stature. Not too over  done in front but for me would ideally like a tad more ground clearance. Very  well handled to get the best out of him and give him confidence. Good tight  feet, well off for bone, level topline and positive movement. Lost BOB to the  bitch as I preferred her elegance and neck. 2 Macdonald's Bensarka Phoenix Sun.  Completely different type to one. Red with lovely head, and despite having a  rather high tailset he kept his topline. Confident and moved out well. 3 Goad's  Rosanport The Illusionist.

(5) 1 &BP Group 4 Mcnaughton's  Cedavoch Eindackel Lucretia Black. Lovely type of puppy who still needs to gain  confidence as she did shy away on the floor as did all the exhibits in this  class. However I preferred her less exaggerated front over two. Was really  pleased to hear she gave a good account of herself in the puppy group. Predict  a good future as her confidence grows. 2 Norton's Matzell Maid In Time. Very  much a baby and as yet hasn't the head or muscle of the winner. Good type and  with confidence should do well. 3 Hunt's Carpaccio Black Pearl.

(4) 1  Higgins' Leveliss Drink Down The Moon. Red with slightly patchy coat. Well  balanced angles at both ends and not over done in front. Out moved two. Liked  her head and type. 2 Lovick-Gibbs Amlida Wright Design For Roleta. Super  temperament on this B/T. Rather small head for body and a shade too low for me  but a gorgeous bitch that appeals in other departments. 3 Marsh's Rill Royal Romance  With Marshwick.

(3,2) 1 Furber's Roleta Constant Reminder To Dorysa.  Rather lacks confidence which is a shame, but she did allow me to touch her  when stacked a the end and so was awarded first place as she has many other  attributes. Liked her type and shape.

(4) 1 Turner's Marictur Moulin  Rouge. Red of lovely size. Excellent movement and kept her topline. Bit over  done in front for me but good type. 2 Ellis' Tealby Tittle Tattle. B/T bigger  than one and longer throwing the balance off slightly. Tail set a touch high.  Still moved with drive and purpose. 3 Lovick-Gibbs Roleta Gameron Wright To  Reply.

(10) Best class of the day both numerically and in overall  quality. Many lovely bitches could have been placed higher on another day. 1,  CC, BOB, Group 2 Henningson's Bensarka Sunkissed Sky. Red with glorious neck  and shoulder. Not overdone in front. Has a little ground clearance that allows  her to really move out and show some drive and power. Confident and a showgirl  with attitude. Handled so well to get the best out of her. Apparently this is  her third CC so well done to you. 2 & Res CC Higgins' Leveliss What She  Said. B/T another with a little ground clearance and good movement. Slightly  over done in front for me which swung it in favour of one. Good feet, head and  topline. 3 Macdonald's Am Ch Hampdach Classic Gold At Bensarka.
