Critique -Judge Mrs S Sturrock (Forfarian)

I would like to thank this prestigious Society for inviting me to judge. I visited the show all 4 days as my daughter Nicola was judging Junior Handling so enjoyed the hospitality on offer.

My thanks also go to my Stewards on the day who helped with the smooth running of the ring.

Having recently judged in Holland where I found some untypical heads in the younger classes I found this also creeping in here. We are losing the raised brow & the soft expression which is being replaced with broad skulls and insufficient stop and in some cases too wide across the eyes. I also can’t understand why some exhibits were shown with dirty eyes. This is surely part of the preparation process for the show ring.

In saying that I had some hair splitting decisions throughout my classes and many places could change on another day.

Veteran Dog (5, 0 abs)

1st Tapper’s Kedalita The Merry Tyler

Beautiful head, good neck, held topline on the move but beginning to lose it when standing, enough bend of stifle, neat feet. Best mover in this class.

2nd Cohen’s Caispern Vilette with Shushana JW Sh Cm

Preferred this dog for overall type, stronger in head, moved with enthusiasm but a little wider in front, in good coat and condition. Just lost out to 1 when moving.

3rd Carter’s Kerrimere Just Rumours

Minor Puppy Dog (5, 0 abs)

1st Wilkins Margaretwoods Gobstopper

Well bodied puppy. Pleasing head with good stop, would prefer a slightly deeper flew but this may come, lovely low set ears. Moved better than 2 today holding his topline on the move but when stacked for any length of time begins to lose this but again this will strengthen with maturity. He has enough stifle for his age, stands on neat feet.

2nd Muir’s Romarne Taittinger

Good head and eye, parallel planes with a square finish to muzzle and showing occiput which is not often seen these days. Plenty reach of neck and firm topline, enough stifle. Lost out to 1 as tended to crab when moving but he was a little upset by the planes going over. I am sure these two will change places many times.

3rd Cooper’s Rowdenhill Jack Daniels

Puppy Dog (11, 2 abs)

1st Condron’s Covarney Flapjack

More compact dog but still balanced. Pleasing head, low ears and good eye shape. Firm topline and good croup and tailset, needs to drop in forechest, well developed quarters, would prefer tidier feet and wrists, moved ok.

2nd Wilkins Margaretwoods Gobstopper

3rd   Muir’s Romarne Taittinger

Junior Dog (11, 1 abs)

1st Oei’s Chase Cinammon’s

Very stylish dog with dark coat and in fabulous condition. Good head although lacks a little work over the brows. Arched neck, gently sloping topline which he holds well on the move, slightly longer cast dog but well ribbed back, well bent stifle and short from hock to heel. Moved very well.

2nd Heron’s Caskeys Maestro

More compact dog. Pleasing head and enough reach of neck, good forehand and plenty of depth, tended to lose rear angulation when stacked. Good topline and correct tailset, giving a lot away in age.

3rd Macaulay’s Caskeys Mischief of Stylersetts

Yearling Dog (6, 0 abs)

1st Mitchell’s Amblin’s Sweet William

Compact dog of good colour and condition. Lovely head correct arched neck, firm gently sloping topline and correct return of upper arm, has good bend of stifle but handler needs to be careful here and place his feet correctly. Good tailset, stands on neat feet. Moved well carrying tail correctly.

2nd Oei’s Chase Cinammon’s

3rd Hemming’s Orlanset The Rocker JW

Novice Dog (5, 0 abs)

1st Cohen’s Aoibheanne’s Rough Diamond With Shushana

Res in Junior. Dog who gives a lot away when misbehaving. Good size. Excellent coat and condition. Pleasing head with good eye shape and raised brows. Good reach of neck, well bent stifle and short from hock to heel. Moved erratically in his last class.

2nd Edward’s Gwendariff The Pink Panther

Upstanding dog, stronger in head, gently sloping topline, tailset a little low. Good bend of stifle, short from hock to heel but tended to move a little close behind.

3rd Pike’s Redclyse Jackson

Graduate Dog (5, 2 abs)

1st Naylor, Morrison & Greenan’s Anlory Keltic Blue Sky JW

Dark coated dog in good condition. Pleasant head with lots of work, correct eye shape, low ears and good reach of neck, correct firm topline, well set on tail, excellent feet, enough bend of stifle but today he wanted to crab on the move.

2nd Mohan’s Anlory Keltic Legend

Litter brother to 1, not so good in head as first but nice low set ears, good topline, firm quarters, also neat feet, moved well.

3rd Pullen’s Seowns Brilliant

Post Graduate Dog (13, 2 Abs)

1st POLLARD ‘s Mrs P M Grayrigge Benedict JW

Compact dog who gives handler a hard time. Good head with dark eye, low ears. Enough reach of neck leading to a gently sloping topline. Correct return of upper arm, good bend of stifle when co-operating. Moved steadily.

2nd MUGFORD’s Mr R C & Mrs J Lynwood Lark In The Dark JW.

Balanced dog who doesn’t always make the most of himself. Kind head, good length of foreface, plenty stop. Not as neat in front as winner, good bend of stifle. Preferred this dogs tailset but was not so steady on the move today.

3rd GILKS Mrs L A Suteresett Mr Uppity

Limit Dog (11, 1 abs)

1st COHEN’s Mr & Mrs H Caispern Lorenzo With Shushana JW

2nd BOTT, Mr R P & ALLEN Mr A C Ember Red Hot Chilipepper Of Quensha (Imp)

Different type of dog to winner but has to be gone over to be fully appreciated. Pleasing head, firm topline, slightly shorter in croup but has good tail carriage. Correct straight front and excellent bone, neat feet. Moved well from strong quarters.

Medium sized dog with lovely head showing the correct raised brows. Good reach of neck, with correct arch, flowing into firm topline. Good forehand angulation with the desired return of upper arm. Ever so slightly proud of his tail today but he was not the only one. Well bent stifle when not overstretched by handle, short from hock to heel. Rich dark coat in fabulous condition. Moved well and had the edge over 2nd in final run off for enthusiasm. CC

2nd PULLEN, Mr K E & ATKIN Miss J Sh Ch Harvancourt Harlem At Jacingail

Very close up to winner. Another good head albeit a little stronger with a square finish to muzzle. Good eye shape and colour. Enough neck but not quite the arch of 1.
