Not the biggest of entries but pleasing nevertheless considering the lack of "middle classes", a Friday & exhibitors prefer a venue closer to the motorway network. There were several quality exhibits in both sexes that were in contention for the Res.CC's but the two CC winners stood out.
Minor Puppy Dog (4),
1st Crocker/Evans Copper's War Of Roses (Imp Swe ) NAF, very promising 6 month old puppy, racy in type. Refined in head with dark expressive eyes, raised brows showing stop, low set ears & balance throughout. Excellent arched neck into well laid shoulders. Good return of upperarm, producing effortless forward reach on the move. Ample bone, deep in brisket, lovely forechest, good over the croup. Well angulated hindquarters, needs time to strengthen in rear pasterns but otherwise very difficult to find any fault. Moved very well for his tender age. Best Puppy in breed.
2nd Hogarth's Redclyst Flash, chunkier type, dark eye with kind expression but overall a bit too strong in head for me at this young age, maybe he will fine down with maturity. Lovely arched neck, strong straight bone, well padded feet, well constructed hindquarters, good tail set & pleasing outline. Moved well. 3rd Owen's Llainmon Celtic Glory
Puppy Dog (3)
1st Sturrock's Forfarian I'm Sexy An I Know It JW, lovely well balanced head with dark expressive eyes, reachy neck flows into well laid back shoulders, could be slightly better in upperarm. Straight front with good bone which continued right down through his pasterns into small tight feet. Well bent stifle & short upright hocks. Good over the croup & in tail set. A little long in the loin at present & rolling a bit on the move but he was sound with accurate footfalls.
2nd Cox's Tiroen To Hot To Handle, good head but not quite so much work in it as the winner. Well boned, straight front, neat feet, good reach of neck. Would prefer more angulation in forehand construction. Deep in brisket, well finished over the croup. Moderate rear angulation produced sound hind movement. Had a lovely dark coat in excellent condition.
3rd Powis's Amberwave Fantabulous.
Junior Dog (7,1abs)
1st Naylor, Morrison & Greenan's Anlory Keltic Blue Sky JW, lovely masculine head with kind expression, moderate reach of neck into well angulated fore quarters. Strong bone & well padded feet. Holds a firm topline with good tail set. Movement was true with his well developed hindquarters producing plenty of drive.
2nd Cuddy's Suteresett Rebel Rouser In Balbriggan, a more elegant type, refined head, kind expression. Pleasing to go over with good neck, straight front, balanced angulation front & rear, strong topline & finish over the croup. Sound but would like to see more drive on the move. Promises to have a lovely coat on maturity.
3rd Hughes' Copper's Twist And Shout (imp Swe)
Post Grad Dog ( 18,2abs)
Sadly several who were unplaced would of fared better if there had been a yearling or graduate class.
1st Cohen's Caispern Lorenzo with Shushana JW, lovely racy young dog , beautiful well moulded head with a glint of mischief in his eye. Good reach of neck which flowed seamlessly into well laid shoulders. Good return of upperarm & strong well angulated rear quarters produced excellent movement enhanced by lovely tail action. Strongly considered for the Res.cc but was a bit rushed into the challenge & lost his composure a little.
2nd Stewart/ Richie-Smith's Gwendariff Whippersnapper JW, striking young dog in the most glorious condition. Kind in expression but just preferred the more classic head of Lorenzo. Well boned, straight front, neat feet. Excellent in forehand construction matched by strong well angulated hindquarters. Lovely topline when stood but just loses his outline a little on the move. Taken at a steadier pace might improve as his movement was accurate. I am sure both these boys will gain their much deserved titles without too much trouble.
3rd Bouttell/ Humphrey's Ixia Joseph JW.
Limit Dog (9,1abs)
1st McLarnon's Glenavna Journey South JW, adore his well chiselled head & soft expression, lovely gently domed skull, low set ears, good finish to muzzle. Good neck into excellent shoulders. Deep through the brisket, straight front, well padded feet. Excels in strong well angulated hindquarters. Moved well. Matured on well from when I last saw him & looked a picture standing with his gently sloping topline but in the challenge just lost out on tail carriage.
2nd Crosswell's Gwendariff Mr Noticeme JW, pleased this dog has recently gained his crown. Elegant throughout, pleasing head. A little short of feathering today. Straight front & neat feet, arched neck into good shoulders. Drives off nice short hocks.
3rd Wood's Reddins Falcon JW.
Open Dog (5)
1st Ciechonska's Copper's Champagne On Ice At Aoibheanne (Imp Swe) excellent masculine head with so much work in it, lovely balance of skull to muzzle, dark expressive eyes under raised brows giving just the right amount of stop. Excellent arched neck into well laid shoulders. Good return of upperarm, deep brisket, straight front with strong bone right down to lovely neat well padded feet. Gently sloping topline, well bent stifles, good second thighs, short hocks. Very strong in movement with superb tail action. In wonderful dark shiny coat. I have never seen him look better & he put on a faultless performance both here & later in the group. CC, BOB & 2nd in Group.
2nd Edden/Crocker's Sh Ch Meadway Morrisey, lovely head, bit stronger in stop than the winner. Quality bone, straight front, good pasterns & neat feet. Deep in brisket, strong quarters. Flows from his head right down to the tip of his tail both standing & on the move, lovely tail action. Covers the ground well on an easy stride. Not out of coat but I have seen him in better bloom. Res.CC.
3rd Hogarth's Sh Ch Avacet Snowdrift.
Veteran Dog (1)
1st Cohen's Caispern Vilette With Shushana JW, pleasing dark eyes, low set ears. Strong bone, excellent shoulders & upperarm. Prefer shorter in loin. Well turned stifles & good 2nd thighs. Moved well.
Minor Puppy Bitch (7,1abs) 1st Stewart/Richie-Smith's Gwendariff Pink Pyjamas, pretty well balanced head, dark eyes. Elegant well arched neck, good construction of fore & rear quarters. Straight front, good bone & neat feet. Short rear pasterns. Needs to drop in brisket but has plenty of time. Moved very well for age. Best puppy bitch.
2nd Powis Amberwave Feather, lovely shaped head just needing to develop a bit more chiselling, dark expressive eyes. Excellent arched neck, well laid shoulders. Lovely outline, strong hindquarters. Moved very well.
3rd Hall's Glennara Cuemin De Fer.
Puppy Bitch ( 6)
1st Sturrocks' Forfarian Hey Sexy Lady JW, pretty feminine head, particularly liked her eyes & brows giving quizzical expression. Straight front, arched neck fitting into good shoulders. Good over the croup, shapely hindquarters, short hocks. Moved well. Not quite the overall balance of the minor puppy at the moment & lacked a bit of condition.
2nd Powis's A. Feather,
3rd Cox's Tiroen To The Manor Born.
Junior Bitch (6,2abs)
1st Webb's Redeshka Arresting Sight, quite surprised that I liked this bitch so much as I've seen her at Open shows when a puppy & wasn't that impressed. However she has grown into an elegant bitch with a lovely head. Arched neck, good shoulders, flowing topline & nice finish over the croup, tail set on correctly. Once settled used her well made quarters to advantage on the move.
2nd Longbottom/Stewart-Ritchie's Gwendariff The Catz Wiskers, pretty head but would prefer a darker eye. Good reach of neck, well laid shoulders, straight front with strong bone. Excels in hindquarters. A little level in topline. Moved ok.
3rd Hinslea's Northamber Riot In Rio.
Post Grad Bitch ( 16,5abs)
1st Stewart-Ritchie's Gwendariff Walnut Whip, appealing head, dark eyes & correct stop, falls away a little in back skull. Apart from that I thought her beautiful with good neck, excellent shoulders & upperarm, gently sloping topline, strong well angulated rear, short hocks. Won on her strong driving movement. Considered for the Res. cc. 2nd Humphreys Henaleas Carry On Flirting JW, lovely feminine head & delightful expression, low set ears. Excellent arched neck flows into strong topline. Well constructed shoulders & upperarm. Well bent stifles, short hocks. With her conformation I was expecting outstanding movement but she didn't really use her assets to advantage, sound but lacked reach & drive, perhaps just an off day.3rd Humphreys Suteresett Miss Curious About Henaleas JW
Limit Bitch ( 12,3abs)
1st Evans/Crocker's Neathamill Nerissa, pretty lean head, dark eyes & kind expression. Excels in arched neck, well laid shoulders & return of upperarm. Strong gently sloping topline, well developed hindquarters, short hocks. It was on the move that she really impressed, accurate fluid long strides, driving from behind & holding her outline. Res.CC.
2nd Hall's Shenanagin Stardrift At Glennara JW, bigger type of bitch but pretty head, dark eyes, soft expression. Straight front, good shoulder & upperarm. Strong hindquarters, lovely outline. Moved well. 3rd Mutch's Astley View Summer Fox,
Open bitch ( 6,1abs)
1st Hunter/Brown's Sh Ch Fairhaven Louise Mountbatten At Braidmount (Imp.Swe) lovely well balanced head, dark eyes & soft expression. Well off for bone, straight front, good shoulder construction. Excellent powerful hindquarters, ideal tailset. Not exaggerated in any department. At times can lose her topline when stacked but this is soon rectified when she moves. Her action is effortless, strong & true. My pleasure to award her the CC. These Swedish Imports and their offspring do seem to have showmanship, coupled with soundness.
2nd Walsh's Sh Ch Millcroft Ballad Of The Moon JW, most beautiful moulded head, outstanding for type, not a big bitch but ample bone. Strong well angulated hindquarters, short hocks. Excels on the move. In excellent dark, shiny coat but carrying a touch too much weight over the shoulders today.
3rd Hinslea's Sh Ch Northamber Causin A Riot JW.
Veteran Bitch (4,1abs)
1st Fox's Satlas Bleau Eyes, has caught my eye in the past for her lovely balance. Classic well shaped head, good reach of neck, well laid shoulders. Pleases in topline, bend of stifle & short hocks. Moved very well.
2nd Kolbach's CIB CIE Ch Copper's Music And Paws (ATC Swe) taller bitch, long & lean in head, excellent reach & arch to neck, clean over the shoulders. Straight front, good outline. Again moved very well.
3rd Russell's Melmara Mezza Luna.
