1st: DAVIES Atahira Ruffian R CC Nicely made
quality dog, masculine and moving with a good long stride. Well made
body, with such an excellent topline and he is outstanding in rear.
Head would look more appealing trimmed better, he looks so hollow
under the eyes it detracts from that jolly wire expression. An easy
R CC today, and should make up I would think with luck.
2nd: ORD & AINSLEY Cloudside Sebastian of
Marnadee JW Also appealed for generally good build and
temperament. Just a bit square over croup & quarters. Excellent
depth to height of legs ratio. Superb coat and muscular
condition, which I admired.
3rd: MAES-JONES & BATES Derochaise
Open Dog (8)
1st: PHILLIPS Ch Royal Pepper's Vice Versa
(Imp Fin) CC BOB Looked well within the correct size and weight
range. He is well balanced in body & angulation both ends,
Always standing four square when I glanced at him, Front legs
well under the deepest part of the chest, but he was not too low
in stance. An excellent true mover. He stood out for me for
correct type and high quality .
2nd: CARRUTHERS Ch Aikton Alexander at
Stanegate. Solid, well put together in immaculate coat and
muscle condition. Great mover too. He is just too big all round
for me and he would struggle going underground I imagine.
3rd: SMITH Salixian Eau Rouge Veteran Dog
1st: LANGRIDGE Tendrow Elberta ShCM Happy
go lucky boy! Full of himself. Sadly out of coat on the day.
Moved with verve, keeping a firm backline.
Special Beginner Bitch (7)
1st: ELLIS Vixendax Venus Starlight sired
by the BOB Vice Versa again..Pleasing size and overall
proportions. Really top class front and forechest. Body deep
enough, with legs set well back under the chest, supporting the
whole front. Ok behind, handler needs to jolly her up a bit
more, and talk to her, she just went a bit drippy.
2nd: WALLER Lady in Roseyred Not quite so
balanced as winner. Reasonable front, deep enough..lovely
temperament.. well handled
3rd: OAKLEY Lallybrook Hester
Minor Puppy Bitch (5)
1st: ELLIS Vixendax Venus Starlight B Bitch
2nd: ROBINSON & HOWLETT Boloria Nice and
Naughty..half sister to winner, Missing incisors as had third
and 4th. Placed them as I thought on the day. Good body, moved
out nicely, lovely coat coming.
3rd: GRAHAM Boloria Wild Spice
Puppy Bitch (6)
1st: PUGHE & FRASER Bystock Sea Nymph I
liked her outline standing and she kept it moving. She covers
plenty of ground going round. Her leg hair is soft, and ribs can
still spring further. Really true and decisive moving.
2nd: MATTHEWS Stanegate Senorita with
Sonham Fat baby rolling in middle piece, when she strengthens up
and gets more width through the quarters Iím sure she will do
well. Loved her head and temperament.
3rd: ROWE Boloria Sugar'N Spice
1st: MOORE Derochaise Black Cherry
Cloudisde CC sire was the BOB Vice Versa Really exciting class
to judge,, and plenty of choice for the places . The CC winner
came from this class, and I can expect to see the first three at
least gaining titles in time. The winner stands out for her
beautiful outline, construction and balance. I thought her head
and expression particularly appealing. Good coat and great on
the go. 2nd: PARROTT Derochaise Blue Angel at Marondera sister
to above.. Also very good quality with an excellent front, and
body proportions. Really firm back, too much tail hair detracts
a bit, but easily fixed by grooming. Super bone, and lovely big
feet. sound too.
3rd: PHILLIPS Tendrow What I Am I Am
1st: SMITH Salixian Rose Sencha sire Vice
Versa A good competitive class. Winner pleasing to go over,
sound front and rear. Also true moving both ways and has a long
stride. Excellent coat texture, well boned legs and tidy feet.
She had a tendency to roach up standing but levelled out on the
move. Nice to see the slight arch to her topline. Iím sure she
will relax more with practice.
2nd: ROWE Boloria Sugar'N Spice Just rather
in-between at present, and needs time. I liked her height to
length proportions excellent coat, well presented. Maybe she is
a little long in second thighs.
3rd: WALLER Lady in Roseyred
1st: MATTHEWS Sonham Saucy Saffron, sired
by 2rd Open. Really good bitch, I thought she could lose a few
pounds to her advantage, but she does keep herself together well
moving, and topline is steady. Pleasing head and pigment, in
fact the whole entry bar a couple had super dark pigment.
Excellent coat texture, but a bit short of coat, on the day.
2nd: PHILLIPS Tendrow I Am What I Am Loved
her size and overall quality. Sadly very out of coat . Good body
and ribbing. Bit of a droopy underline on the day too. Sound
free and active mover.
3rd: MOUNTFORD Incordemeo My Story
Limit Bitch (12)
1st: HOWLETT & PHILLIPS Tendrow Makes the
Right Turn JW R CC her sire was BOB Smart, sound & very well put
together. Stands on good legs and large, tight bunched feet.
Excellent firm topline, Good powerful rear, OK in head, handled
to get the best out of her too!
2nd: PHILLIPS Tendrow Turns Over the Page
sister to above. Elegant in profile, especially on the go
around. Just a mite long in loin which separated her from her
sister. Excellent coat for her colour, Strong bone. Close up.
3rd: SMITH Windfalls Coco Noire at Salixian
1st: PHILLIPS Tendrow Wired To Succeed
sired by Vice Versa Lovely class! Some missing teeth again which
might explain some of the lower placings. Winner had a perfect
mouth though! Good front, forechest and slope to upper arm. Just
slightly long cast perhaps. Excellent strong quarters and a good
2nd: HUTCHINGS Ch Collidach Brook Ling
another by Just a Kiss. Stands and moves with great aplomb,
superb temperament, must be a joy to live with. Well made and
moving well. Reds are not the easiest coats to deal with, but
hers is good texture. True and precise moving. Must mention the
third placed, I absolutely love her, but sadly on the day she
was carrying too much weight.. a pity as she would make a very
worthy champion and she is a great favourite of mine.
3rd: HUTCHINGS Tendrow I Am the One from
Veteran Bitch (2)
1st: PHILLIPS Ch Tendrow A Page in Time
B Veteran Two super old ladies both in sparkling form and
coat, so difficult to separate. Topline just a wee bit
steadier on the winner, I loved them both!. 2nd: HASTINGS
Lesdandnic Sleepytime ShCM A coat to die for! Super head and
expression, moved out well all round, A credit to her owner
