Championship Show October 2013

Judge Mr Frank Smith

Dogs

THE MAJORITY OF DOGS WERE PRESENTED CLEAN AND WELL GROOMED WITH ONLY MINOR EXCEPTIONS AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE EXHIBITORS FOR MAKING MY ASSESSMENT OF THEM SO MUCH EASIER.
 
MINOR PUPPY DOG.  3
1     O'NEILL'S     CARONLEA CELTIC LOVE.
       7 MONTHS SABLE & WHITE OF QUALITY. NICE WEDGE SHAPED HEAD A NEAT EARS WHICH HE USED NON STOP.
       GOOD CHIN GIVING A WELL ROUNDED MUZZLE. HE HAS A PLEASING EXPRESSION BUT I WOULD PREFER A SWEETER     EYE. WELL ARCHED NECK INTO GOOD
       LAY OF SHOULDER AND LEVEL BACK, THAT HE HELD ON THE MOVE. WELL BONED AND MUSCLED. NICE BEND OF
       STIFLE WITH GOOD ANGULATION. SHORT HOCKS WITH POSITIVE MOVEMENT.
 
2   BOYLE'S      BARRENCLOUGH MOONGLOW
     S/W OF 7 1/2 MONTHS
     THIS YOUNG LAD IS WELL OFF FOR COAT. HAS A GOOD CHIN WITH WELL ROUNDED MUZZLE. QUITE A PLEASING EXPRESSION BUT WOULD BENEFIT FROM LIGHTER EARS AND A SWEETER EYE. PRESENTATION AND HANDLING NEED TO BE ADDRESSED.
 
3   MELVIN & JOPSON'S     STARLENGA STREETS AHEAD AT NITHVIEW.
 
PUPPY DOG   6
1   BROOKER'S CORISIAN IRRESTIBLE
     RICH COLOURED SABLE OF 11 MONTHS.   THIS YOUNG LAD SHOULD BE ONE TO WATCH IN THE FUTURE.
     CARRYING A GOOD SET OF EARS THAT HE USED NON STOP TOGETHER WITH A SWEET EYE AND WELL ROUNDED MUZZLE.HAS A PLEASING EXPRESSION AND IS  FAIRLY WELL FILLED IN FOREFACE BUT GIVEN TIME THIS SHOULD FILL IN AND ENHANCE HIS EXPRESSION TOGETHER WITH HIS HEAD PROPERTIES. HEAVILY COATED THIS CAN DETRACT FROM HIS ANGULATION BUT UPON FINDING HIS LAY OF SHOULDER TO HIS LENGTH OF BACK YOU CAN SEE THE BALANCE IS THERE. WAS A TOUCH HESITANT AT FIRST ON THE MOVE BUT BEING A PUPPY I GAVE HIM A SECOND CHANCE AND WITH THIS HE HAD NOW SETTLED DOWN. WELL PUT DOWN AS ALWAYS FROM THIS KENNEL. BPD
 
2  FORT'S   SHULUNE MINES A DOUBLE
    S/W AGAIN OF 11 MONTHS. SMALLER THAN FIRST PLACE BUT VERY WELL PRESENTED. HAS GOOD MOULDING OF HEAD WITH SUFFICIENT CHIN. NICE SET OF EYE BUT OVERALL I WOULD HAVE LIKED A LITTLE SWEETER EXPRESSION.BALANCED IN BODY LENGTH FOR HIS HEIGHT WITH GOOD ANGULATION HE NOW NEEDS TO DRIVE A TOUCH MORE FROM THE REAR. WELL PRESENTED AND BEAUTIFULLY GROOMED.
 
3   BOYLE'S   BARRENCLOUGH MOONGLOW.
 
JUNIOR DOG  5
 
1   BROOKER'S CHANTIQUE LOVES TO BOOGIE WITH CORISIAN.
     HEAVILY COATED S/W OF 16 1/2   MONTHS. FULL WHITE COLLAR ENHANCING HIS NECK. WELL ROUNDED MUZZLE AND FILLED IN FOREFACE. GOOD SET OF EARS AND SWEET EYE GIVING ME A BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSION. GOOD ANGULATION FRONT AND REAR HE IS QUITE A STRONG LOOKING DOG THAT IS WELL OFF FOR BONE. HE HAS NOW SETTLED DOWN FROM HIS EARLY DAYS AND GIVEN TIME AND IMPROVEMENT SHOULD BE A FORERUNNER IN A COUPLE OF YEARS.
 
2  ILEY'S   LYNMEAD AMALIE WOODCUTTER FOR ILEYDA
   S/W OF 13 MONTHS. A SMALLER DOG IN ALL DEPARTMENTS TO ONE BUT NONETHELESS HE IS A DOG OF QUALITY. BALANCED IN HEAD BUT NOT HAVING THE SWEETNESS IN EYE. IN GOOD CONDITION AND WELL GROOMED HE CARRIES THE BALANCE IN BODY LENGTH AND WITH HIS ANGULATION AND BEND OF STIFLE HE SHOULD NOW BE STRIDING OUT, BUT AS WITH MOST MALES OF THIS AGE THE POSITIVE MOVEMENT ISN'T THERE.
 
3  McLAUGHLIN'S   RYDEEN JAMBOREE AT BRIHOW
 
MAIDEN DOG  3  (1 )
1  BOYLE'S BARRENCLOUGH MOONGLOW
2  RYCROFT'S LYNMACK SAY YOU WILL
    17 MONTHS S/W. SADLY LACKING IN EXPRESSION AND HEAD QUALITIES. CARRIES A GOOD LENGTH OF BODY AND ANGULATIONS. MOVES OKAY BUT WITHOUT ANY REAL PURPOSE OR CONVICTION.
 
NOVICE DOG   3
1  FORT'S SHULUNE MINE'S A DOUBLE
2  BOYLE'S BARRENCLOUGH MOONGLOW
3  RYCROFT'S LYNMACK SAY YOU WILL
 
GRADUATE DOG  3
1 CHIRRAY'S KOURIKA BLACK JAKE
   TRI COLOUR DOG OF 4 YEARS. FAIRLY WELL GROOMED. NEEDS A TOUCH MORE ATTENTION TO EARS AND HOCK AREAS. NICE HEAD MOULDING AND EYE BUT DIDN'T USE HIS EARS VERY WELL AS HE WAS NOT HAPPY IN THE VENUE.
A MODERATELY BONED DOG WITH GOOD ANGULATION HE MOVED OK.
 
2 RYCROFT'S LYNMACK SAY YOU WILL
3 McGILL'S PARIDEL MICHELIN STAR
 
POST GRADUATE DOG   9
1 COLLINS TRIBURLE ZACHARY
   22 MONTHS OLD S/W  DOG OF IMMENSE QUALITY. INITIALLY NEEDED TIME TO SETTLE BUT ONCE HE DID HE STOOD OUT FOR ME IN THIS GOOD CLASS. BEAUTIFULLY MOULDED  HEAD AND FOREFACE WITH STOP NOT OVERDONE. CARRYING EARS ON TOP WITH THE SWEETEST OF EYE HAS A MELTING EXPRESSION THAT JUST TAKES YOU IN.WITH HIS NECK LEGTH INTO LAY OF SHOULDER AND LENGTH OF BACK HIS OVERALL SHAPE AND BALANCE JUMP OUT AT YOU. EXCELLENT ANGULATION AT BOTH FRONT AND REAR WITH HIS BEND OF STIFLE AND SHORT HOCKS HE IS MADE TO MOVE, AND THIS HE CERTAINLY DOES AS HE FLOATS OVER THE GROUND. IT MADE MY DAY WHEN I AWARDED HIM HIS FIRST CC.
2   KAYE'S DANFREBEK DRESSED TO KILL.
     AS IN THE NAME HE CERTAINLY WAS. THIS SUPER TRI COLOUR OF ALMOST 2 YEARS WAS GLEAMING FROM HEAD TO TOE. CARRYING A FULL WHITE COLLAR AND JET BLACK IN COLOUR MAKES HIM STAND OUT IN THE CROWD. USTEADY TO BEGIN WITH WHEN HANDLING HE THEN SETTLED DOWN. HAS A WELL MOULDED HEAD AND FOREFACE WITH A VERY SWEET EYE, WELL ROUNDED IN MUZZLE AND FILLED IN FOREFACE GIVING A BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSION.BALANCED IN BODY TO HEIGHT RATIO WITH CORRECT ANGULATION AND SHORT HOCKS HE HAS A POSITIVE DRIVE ONCE HE GOES. UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM HE MET TODAYS CLASS WINNER IN SUCH FINE FORM, BUT I HAD NO HESITATION IN AWARDING HIM RDCC.
3  CONGDON'S MONSOLANA BLUZTAR FOR AARONWELL
 
LIMIT DOG  10
1  HASSOCK'S CAMANNA COTTON PICKER
    TRI COLOUR OF IMMENSE QUALITY.  SUPER SHAPE & MOVER. CORRECT HEAD WITH SLIGHTET STOP AND NEAT EARS. NICE EYE BUT I WOULD LIKE A TOUCH SWEETER. GOOD ARCH OF NECK WITH BALANCE OF BODY LENGTH. GOOD REAR END WITH POSITIVE DRIVE AND STRIDES OUT IN FRONT. COAT NOT GLEAMING TODAY BUT NONETHELESS WELL GROOMED.
2  BLAIKIE'S DOUBLE OR QUITS AT WASSAIL
    ANOTHER QUALITY TRI COLOUR. GLEAMING JET BLACK WITH FULL WHITE COLLAR. TOUCH UNSTEADY ON HANDLING. NICE HEAD AND EYE WITH NEAT EARS GIVING SWEET EXPRESSION. HAS THE MOVEMENT TO COMPLIMENT HIS SHAPE. VERY CLOSE DECISION BETWEEN FIRST TWO.
3  JONES'S  ERJON EBONY JOKER
OPEN DOG  13 ( 2 )
1 TIPPER'S  CHANTIQUE HUGGY BEAR FOR TIGANLEA
   S/W OF GOOD QUALITY. I WAS PLEASANTLY SUPRISED WHEN GOING OVER THIS LAD. VERY MASCULINE AND HEAVILY BONED. WELL MUSCLED IN NECK AND THICH AREAS HE IS A POWERFUL DOG. EXCELLENT IN ANGULATION WITH A SUPER REAR END HE STRIDES OUT AND DRIVES FROM THE REAR WITHOUT ANY EFFORT. HEAD IS A LITTLE TO STRONG FOR ME AND I WOULD LIKE A BIT MORE REFINEMENT.
2 O'NEILL'S IR CH CARONLEA LORD OF THE DANCE
   SHADED SABLE & WHITE. NICE SIZED LAD BUT TODAY LACKING A LITTLE CHARISMA. WELL GROOMED AS ALWAYS ALTHOUGH A LITTLE DOWN IN COAT HE HAS A NICE SHAPE IN PROFILE. GOOD CHIN AND BALANCED IN SKULL WITH A SWEET EYE. I WOULD LIKE A BIT MORE IN FOREFACE. NEEDS TO CONTROL HIS TAIL WHEN MOVING AS THIS IS NOW AFFECTING REAR MOVEMENT.
3 CRONK'S CHELBORN DECISION.
VETERAN  5  (4)
1 CONGDON'S  RUS CH GARBH GINO OF AARONWELL
   10 YEAR OLD SABLE ENJOYING HIS DAY OUT. CARRIES VERY LITTLE WHITE. HAS THE SWEETEST EYE AND EXPRESSION AND THE HEAD STILL HANDLES VERY WELL WITH VERY LITTLE RECEDING OF BACKSKULL. ON INSPECTION OF HIS TEETH THEY ARE STILL IN THE SAME CONDITION AS OF THAT OF A PUPPY. WELL OFF FOR COAT AND IMMACULATELY GROOMED. VERY ATTENTIVE TO HIS HANDLER. ALTHOUGH HE CAN STILL MOVE ALL THE DRIVE HAS GONE. HAVING SAID THIS IS WAS A PLEASURE TO GO OVER HIM
