My sincere apologies for letting you all wait half an hour in the morning before judging. The fault was all mine as I had not noticed that we had an early start, but thankfully, there seemed to be no moans as soon as judging got under way. I very much enjoyed judging the breed and I found quality all through my excellent entry and left the ring smiling feeling I had had a lovely day among quality dogs. I would however like to mention that I found some dogs  over-boned and larger than what the standard calls for, also dentition needs consideration with quite a few mouths that made me look a little extra.

Class 1959 MPD (8 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 7769 PATERSON, Mr P & MCPHERSON, Mr S Ambiesque Avant TAF, lovely type built on clean lines, beautiful neck and shoulders, just right for body at this stage, very sound well-made quarters, typical head with good eye, wonderful texture of coat, shows great promise for the future

2nd: 7757 MAES-JONES & BATES, Mrs. & Miss E Derochaise Blue Danube (AY3)another very promising puppy of similar make & shape, excellent front and well developed forechest for age, hard coat in good order, excellent body and topline, sound behind and he strode out well, just preferred the cleaner neck and shoulders of the eventual winner here

3rd: 7723 BUBB, Mrs H Wyeknot Looks Like Trouble

 Class 1960 PD (6 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 7742 ELDRED, Miss S A Derdledash Naughty Neptune, pleasing outline, good body, legs and feet, typical head, dark eye, well-made quarters, could do with more angulation in front, moved soundly

2nd: 7771 PATTON, Miss L Lesandnic Sovereign, well-presented masculine puppy with pleasing outline but front needs to improve, good coat, excellent hindquarters, not the movement of the winner

3rd: 7720 BEST, Mrs J Stanegate Set Em Up Joe for Bestina

 Class 1961 JD (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 7784 SANDERS, Mrs L Just Lennys choc chip, strikingly masculine dog with plenty of bone, rather strong in head, wonderful texture of coat, excellent body, sound quarters, good tail, easy mover and he was very well presented and won this class with a bit in hand

2nd: 7771 PATTON, Miss L Lesandnic Sovereign, see previous class

3rd: 7717 ADAMS, Mrs L D Sonham Paddington JW

Class 1962 PGD (7 Entries) Abs: 2

2nd: 7736 DAVIES, Mrs C Atahira Ruffian, masculine dog of a slightly different mould and heavier in build all over but with excellent conformation and he is very sound, very good body, front and rear, masculine head. Very good coat in excellent condition, preferred the more moderate length of body of the winner

3rd: 7745 HORNE, Mr M Salixian Moroccan Mint

 Class 1963 LD (7 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 7765 MCPHERSON, Mr S & PATERSON, Mr P Brumberhill Mr Wilks JW RCC, top-class dog who filled my eye immediately upon entering the dog, very sound with textbook construction, beautiful head and expression, presented in rock-hard muscular condition sporting a super hard wiry coat, never put a foot wrong, just unlucky to meet the eventual CC-winner. A close decision. Res CC

2nd: 7743 GRAHAM, Mrs J A & GRAHAM, Mr A Stanegate Shot in the Dark JW, another good very masculine dog who appealed greatly for soundness and overall conformation, good front and rear, excellent body, topline, masculine head, fluid easy mover, not the coat of the winner

3rd: 7763 MCCALMONT, Mrs K & MCCALMONT, Mr D Silvae Timekeeper

 Class 1964 OD (8 Entries) Abs: 1 Lovely class and a great pleasure to judge, ultimately headed by:

1st: 7777 PHILLIPS, Mrs V Royal Pepper's Vice Versa (IMP FIN) (Imp Fin), my notes say lovely and he certainly is! Beautiful overall make and shape with perfect overall proportions, very good head, eye and expression, perfect mouth, well developed forechest, good neck and shoulders, clean neck, strong topline leading to well-set and carried tail, perfect hindquarters reflected in equally perfect parallel movement, also in front. Presented in top class coat and condition. I was delighted to hear that this was his crowning CC very worthy champion indeed. Congratulations!

 Class 1965 VD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 7772 PATTON, Miss L Ir Ch Lesandnic Lil Eetee, red hard-coated masculine dog with pleasing head, good body and coat, stands on good legs and feet and has ample bone, looking very well showing happily, just a little proud of his tail and not quite the freedom of movement of some of the younger dogs, but nonetheless a very good representative of the breed and a credit to his owner.

2nd: 7718 BALDWIN, Mrs J & BALDWIN, Mr B AVENTINE SCOTTS BLUFF, different in type but lots to like about him, masculine typical head, good topline, clean neck and shoulders, rather narrow in front and ribcage, moved well presenting an excellent overall picture

 Class 1966 MPB (6 Entries) Abs: 0 Difficult class with considerable variation

1st: 7793 STOCKDALE, Ms L Derochaise Blue Velvet at Fenwires, 6 months old baby puppy who is very correct to go over, excellent neck and shoulders, good body, sound backend, hard coat, at this age just needs to gain more confidence.

2nd: 7779 PHILLIPS, Mrs V Tendrow Turns Over The Page, also pleasing to go over with good outline, very good hindquarters, stands a little lower to ground than the winner and pasterns could be stronger, good coat and movement, excellent head with keen expression. Difficult decision between two babies.

3rd: 7734 COVERLEY, Mrs L Aventine Aunt Patience

 Class 1967 PB (4 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 7778 PHILLIPS, Mrs V Tendrow Makes The Right Turn, lovely bitch puppy of beautiful type built on clean lines, good neck and shoulders, lovely head and expression, excellent body for age, well-made quarters, very good coat, expertly handled and won Best Puppy

2nd: 7730 ARTHURS, Mr &Mrs A Elderkine's Hot Gossip, attractive red bitch puppy with first-class proportions and very good conformation fore and aft, feminine head, eyes and expression, really good coat of correct texture, moved well, preferred the wider,  stronger underjaw of the winner

3rd: 7741 ELDRED, Miss S A Derdledash Shining Star

Class 1968 JB (9 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 7783 ROWE, miss R Boloria Nice'N Spicy JW, all quality youngster who won this class with a bit in hand, well-made front, body and hindquarters, good neck & topline, pleasing head with good expression and bite, excellent coat in good order, strode out really well demonstrating the fact that form and function do go hand in hand, should have a good future, liked her very much

2nd: 7785 SANDERS, Mrs L Knottsrose Creme Brulee, feminine with lovely head, good body, needs a little more neck for perfection and she was shown in very short coat here today, excellent mover once she gained confidence

3rd: 7738 DICKINSON, Miss A Derdledash Dakota at Dakotadax

 Class 1969 PGB (9 Entries) Abs: 3

1st: 7797 WALLER, Mrs Y Tendrow Laced With Success, my notes reminds me of how much I liked this lovely bitch whom I found hard to fault with textbook conformation and movement, pin-wire coat in tip-top condition, excellent fluid mover, pressed hard in the challenge a lovely bitch

2nd: 7740 ELDRED, Miss S A Derdledash Moon Beam, many of the same comments apply to this lovely bitch  who also made quite an impression,  wonderful texture of coat, looked a picture standing, not quite the ease of movement of the winner, but nonetheless a very good bitch indeed

3rd: 7729 ARTHURS, Mr &Mrs A Elderkine Rumours

 Class 1970 LB (9 Entries) Abs: 6

1st: 7764 MCCALMONT, Mrs K & MCCALMONT, Mr D Silvae Sky Dancer, when this bitch entered the ring I thought she might be my CC-winner here today, beautifully balanced all over, really lovely head, the very best of coats, strode round the ring with ease demonstrating fluid and parallel movement. In the challenge, a very close decision between her and what turned out to be her sister. Res CC wish I had had one more CC also for this top-class bitch who richly deserves her title

2nd: 7766 MCPHERSON, Mr S & PATERSON, Mr P Brumberhill Biscotti (ai) super coated feminine bitch of quality, good front, excellent topline, sound well-made quarters, easy mover, feminine head, would have liked a stronger muzzle and eye could be darker, expertly handled.

Congratulations to her owner and breeder and thank you for allowing me the pleasure of judging her

2nd: 7754 HUTCHINGS, Mrs F & PRICE, Mrs N Collidach Brook Ling, strong red bitch of lovely type , excellent overall conformation, sound front and rear, very good legs and feet, hard wiry coat in first-class condition, attractive head but muzzle could be stronger, very good overall picture, moved well
