5th KENT Toniajavae Indian Passion at Lokmadi JW



I found that heads remain a problem in this variety with too many having weak under jaws, snipey muzzles, round bulbous eyes and domed skulls.

Mouths were in the majority good although one or two had misplaced teeth, missing teeth and small teeth. Bone was lacking in a few and I was surprised that several were shy. Movement was varied although toplines were good in the vast majority. On the plus side there were no thin exhibits and all but one were in very good overall condition. Ribbing and fronts were reasonable and only a few exhibited too much wrinkle on the front legs.  I was looking for a balanced hound that had the correct structure and muscle and that had some attitude and showmanship. One that was balanced and could move well, and generally looked like a standard in miniature. One who was fit for function, whether that be a working hound, an extravagant show dog or a healthy happy pet.

Minor P D [6/1abs]1st BP . Res CC and Res BPIS Ergis’ “Siouxline Levi”Promising d with all the essentials I was looking for. Moved out with style and didn’t fall apart after one circuit of the ring. Masculine head with correct eye. Good mouth. Developing well for age. Confident despite his youth. Most promising.

2nd.Burton’s “Swingletrees Razzamatazz” Similar to one but not as advanced. Needs to tighten all round and gain a little more confidence but surely this will come?

3rd Carey’s “Swingletrees Abracadabra”


Puppy D [7/1abs]

1st Mead’s “Ardenrun Aeron into Minimead” Clear red who has a well developed forechest. Won this class on his steady movement.

2nd Swingletrees Razzamatazz

3rd “Swingletrees Abracadabra”


Junior D [2/1abs]

1st Scott’s “Wolverflow Captain Bellamy” Masculine head and well angled.

Just needs to grow in confidence.


Post Grad D [5/1abs]

1st Mead’s “Lokmadi Blushing Groom at Minimead” Although a tiny one he moved well and had a strong personality. Well balanced and well made.

2nd Shuker’s “Yewlitt Dougal” All male exhibit who was close up to one. Just preferred outgoing nature and eye of first.

3rd Burton;s “Swingletrees Just in Time


Limit D [12/2abs]

1st CC BOB Res BIS Andison and Peel’s “Clentry Black Pudding”. B/T all male exhibit who had the attitude and  movement I was looking for. Masculine head and correct eye. Balanced angulation. Correct height to length ratio. Kept lovely outline in profile and moved with drive when viewed from behind. Can’t believe this was his first major win as he stood away for me today. An excellent dog who should carry his title with ease.

2nd Ergis’ “Siouxline Zebedee JW” Another  exhibit that I liked. He too moved well and kept going. Just preferred the eye and feet of one, but certainly not disgraced with this place today.

3rd Phillips’ “Jentiki red Chilli Pepper of Robinswood”


Open D [5/1abs]

1st Herrington’s “Kathington Coeur de Lion” This exhibit excelled in profile movement and in keeping a good outline. Well made dog with all the essentials.

2nd Coxon’s “Ch D’Arisca I Do Declare”. At the stack this dog would have won the class as he presented an excellent picture, but on the move just preferred topline of one. Another quality dog.

3rd Williams’ “Cwmdarhian cant Touch This”


Minor Puppy B [8/2abs]

1st O’Rourke’s “Sunsong Sea Anenome” One and two were close in this class and so I kept them going around until they sorted themselves out.  One held a tidier outline on the move and settled into her stride just slightly better than two.

2nd Bourne’s “Yaapeet Saskia Promising little b who will do well as she matures.

3rd Burton’s “Swingletrees Eiderdown”


Puppy B [9/2abs]

1st  Salisbury’s “Brocklewood Calypso” Caught my eye as soon as she came into the ring, and on the move did not disappoint. Won this class with some in hand. Good specimen.

2nd “Swingletrees Eiderdown Sound little puppy giving a lot away to one in maturity.

3rd Lombardelli’s “Myleforbe Fleur De Lys at Kelmbeck



Junior B [14/5abs]

1st Young’s “Willowheath Prudence” Small and sound. A shade low for my preference but moved well and kept a good outline. Good type and temperament.

2nd Shelton’s “Barisse Arbennik Isoldes Endeavour. Similar in quality to one and close up. Just preferred one’s rear action on the day.

3rd Mitchell’s “Bronia Carmina at Imirika”



Post Grad B [8/3abs]

1st Roberts “Bronia Caprice to Denver” Won this class on her driving movement. Looked good in profile. Sound temperament. Small but balanced.

2nd. Melbourne’s “Melriding Berengaria” Not quite as steady behind as one but otherwise close up. Liked her for type and balance.

3rd Salisbury’s “Brocklewood Black Velvet.



Limit B [14/3abs]

1st Reed’s “Cedax Octavia Surprise for Deercroft JW” Won an impressive limit class. Liked her for balance and style. Moved very well back and forth and kept a good picture in profile.

2nd Ergis, Melbourne and Holdsworth’s “Sioux Alliance with Melriding JW”

Another lovely bitch who had a good head and was well made. Just felt she started to lose her topline very slightly after the third circuit.

3rd Winchurch’s “Brianolf Opalite”


Open B [9/2abs]

1st CC Hunt’s Cwmdarhian Back to Alabama at Carpaccio JW

Lovely balanced b/t. Moved so well in profile and forward and back. Difficult to fault and shown in sparkling condition. Liked her very much.

2nd Res CC Blackburn-Bennett’s “Ch Lokmadi Sea Holly at Stargang”

Another super b with great head and character. Just fractionally preferred rear drive of one but it was close. 

3rd Blackburn’s “Ch Sonderbar Billie Jean at Stargang” [Imp]
