east of england 2

I would like to start by thanking the exhibitors for the sporting manner in which they accepted my decisions, along with my two efficient stewards. It was a very hot day, and I know that this deterred some exhibitors from attending, which I fully understood. Unfortunately by the time we got into the ring, the heat was at its height. In the main, the dogs coped well, it was some of the exhibitors and me who suffered more. I found that type was mixed and depth of quality was stronger in the bitches. I was looking for balance, quality and sound movement. Judging is a matter of opinion and interpretation of the breed standard, hence why we get different results on different days. There were a few gay tails, especially in bitches, the standard calling for "never carried above the level of
the back", this affected their placings. There were a few who didn't perform as I know they can, but you judge on the day, not on past performance or future promise, again this affected the places that they gained on the day. To finalise my opening remarks, the ring had a steep gradient which sorted the men from the boys, or ladies from the girls in these politically correct times as it was unforgiving on any dog who couldn't push from its backend.

Little to choose between these two young men embarking on their show careers, movement being the deciding factor here
1ST PEASBLOSSOM VALENTINO (MRS S GRAHAM) A liver and white young man of 6 months at the leggy stage, well developed head for age with square muzzle and sufficient stop, clean neck and shoulders, standing on straight legs with adequate bone, tight feet, he had enough chest for age, elbows well in, good spring of rib, adequate bend of stifle, well developed second thigh, short tail, well let down hocks, moved out well for one so young
2ND MEADOWDALE LUTHER VANDROSS AT SEASPRING (MS T M DUNSDON) A smart youngster, black and white in colour, he possesses a kind dark eye of correct shape, a balanced head with just the right amount of work, correct amount of neck into well laid shoulders, his elbows were a little loose today, but hopefully will tighten with age, he has a deep chest and good length of back with a level topline which he held on the move, he has good bend of stifle and well let down hocks, he has a low set tail of longer length then one, unfortunately he was very erratic on the move today which cost him the class.

Junior - Dog

1ST BERESFORD NIGHT TRAIN (MRS T E TOPLISS) 17 month liver and white who possesses a masculine head of good proportions, sufficient stop, well chiselled below the eye, correct length to muzzle, correct length of neck displaying the typical arch which was lacking in some today, good lay of shoulder, well off for bone, but not overdone as I have seen on others from this kennel in the past, tight feet, tight elbows, deep chest, well sprung ribs, strong in loin, moderately bent stifles, well developed second thigh, low set tail, low set hocks, moved confidently around the ring driving from behind and swinging from the shoulder, I had no hesitation and was pleased to award him the reserve CC
2ND WANDSFELL NIGHTFLIGHT (MRS J H MARRIS-BRAY) A young black and white only just moving into junior which resulted in him not being able to match the maturity of one, not as balanced in head as one, I would have preferred a little more length in his muzzle, that said he possesses enough chiselling and a kind dark eye, adequate neck, not the depth of chest compared to one at this stage of his development, well-proportioned back and strong in loin, he has a moderate bend to his stifle and well-let down hocks, on the move today he was loose in front and erratic in rear, maybe his owner could move him a little slower to advantage.

2ND RISELAWROAD NO DEAL (MS C & MR P BROUGH & WALKER) I judged this young man at my last appointment and thought he had more development to come, he is still not as mature as the winner and there is still more to come, he has a typical springer head which is balanced, kind eye, low set ears, good length to neck and well laid shoulders, straight front, deep chest, would have preferred tighter elbows, nice spring of rib, strong in loin, his rear is balanced with moderately bent stifles and well developed second thigh, low set tail of good length, low set hocks, moved positively but lacked the verve of one.

A good honest dog who I was pleased to award Best Veteran in Breed.
2ND SH CH JOROBADEN ALDERNITI OF EMIANNA JW (MRS A C HAPPS) Now nearly ten, he has a broader head then one, although balanced, a little strong for me, it does possess sufficient chiselling below the eye and the muzzle is square, he has sufficient neck but was carrying a little extra across the shoulder today, his front is straight and his chest is deep, his elbows are tight and he has a good spring of rib, strong in loin with good bend of stifle, his tail was well set, would have preferred a stronger rear, moved ok but lacked the drive of the winner.

1ST PETRANELLA THE REAL DEAL OF PENDARLOW (MRS P & MR D & MISS A WALLIS & LEVENE) In my opinion this young lady meets the standard to a tee, no exaggerations, one who I considered for the reserve CC last time I judged, but felt her too young on that day, she has a feminine head of good balance and quality, just the right amount of stop and fluting between her kind dark eyes of almond shape, which were well chiselled below, her muzzle is square and of good length, her neck is of correct length with sufficient arch, her shoulders are well laid and she has just the right amount of bone, her feet are tight, she has the right amount of depth to her chest, her elbows are tight, she has good length to body, with a superb spring of rib, her loin has good strength, her stifles are moderately bent, she was in good condition with well-developed second thigh, low set tail which was carried correctly, her coat was gleaming, she moved in harmony with her handler, the best I have seen from her, her front swings well forward and she drives from behind holding her topline on the move. Could not be denied the CC on the day.
2ND PLAIGLEN FLORIN (MR D J & MRS E B WHITLEY) Heavier stamp than one, but a lot to like about this black and white, she has a superb head with melting expression, typical of our breed, balanced in dimensions with a dark almond eye, no exaggeration in neck which was correct in length with arch, well laid shoulders, just enough bone, deep chest, tight elbows good spring of rib, strong in loin, moderately bent stifles, good second thigh, well let down hocks, moved out well, unfortunate to meet one on top form today.
