It just kept on getting better! Three very pretty classy puppies, albeit at varying stages of development. I have little doubt all three will all be vying for success in their futures.
1 Calverts Calvdale Material Witness
Hands up - I admit wanting to give this pretty l/w/t bitch puppy a cuddle, as she is a poppet. She has the most attractive head and expression and with just the right amount of body and bone for her age. Even though today she was mite up on the leg in relation to her length of back, I considered her worthy of 1st place for her undoubted quality. Unlike her unco-operative sister, she was totally unfazed by her surroundings and, assisted by her handler, showed with a confidence beyond her years. Even when it came to the challenge for Best Puppy, she never faltered. I do hope she fulfils the promise she showed here.
2 Mitchells' Lordsett White Whisper at Peasblossom
An awful lot to like about her make, shape and movement, added to the fact that she is of distinct quality, with all the right credentials to fulfil her promise. Rangier and more gangly at this stage, than 1, but equally as confident and happy on the move.

1 Scotts' Melverly Islay Inspired at Lossiedoon
Shapely, stylish liver tri with good body proportions, plus an excellent head and soft expression, reflective of her breeding, with well boned legs and tight feet. As she strengthens and tightens up all round, she will be able show her sound movement in a better light than today. She did enough though to take this class with relative ease.
2 Topliss’ BERESFORD NORTHERN LIGHT
Very feminine and well put together, presenting a balanced picture when stood. Sound, but, not quite the precision in movement as yet and also physically not as forward as 1. Time will I expect treat her well

1 Walkers' Dexbenella Derethea
This bitch is spot on for balance, neck and shoulder placement and overall elegance. Her head is as it should be, feminine but still with great depth of muzzle and even though her eye needs to darken, her expression is acceptable. Stands solidly on well boned legs and tight feet. Powerful and well structured rear end, with lovely sweep of stifle, all which contribute to her accurate drive in rear. Most encouraging to note that she is a litter sister to the Junior Dog winner, both of whom are sired by the C.C, winner. Both hopefully will finish well.
2 Hollendas' Scoutwell Leading Lady
Balanced, attractive bitch, with much to like in head and basic construction. She moved well, but could not match 1 in movement and general deportment.

1 Smiths' Melvertly Sophistique
What a kennel of quality stock this owner/breeder continues to produce.
Very mature physically for her age and quite frankly everything about her screams class, from her excellent construction and superb head, to her flowing movement and affable temperament. A certain degree of refinement, which comes with development, will see her take command in the coming years. Although there is little now that I would change, her older kennel mates better watch out as she may well outshine them in the future.
2 Topliss' Beresford Don't Tempt Me
Believe me, I almost was! Despite her undoubted qualities she had to give way to 1’s superior finish and head properties today. She had no trouble though winning further classes thereafter, due in particular to her agreeable balance, bone, legs and feet and reachy movement.

2 Calverts' Calvdale Hearsay
Still not sure of herself and giving away quite a bit in age to 1, but was worthy enough, on quality alone, through her attractive head, balance, good front assembly, depth of body and bone to take 2nd in this class.

1 Topliss' Peasblossom Hope for Beresford
Very appealing in head with warmth of expression and just the right depth of muzzle. Sufficient depth of body and I liked her balance. Her coat looked a little out of sorts and I would consider she can do herself better justice another day, as with a lot of dogs from this breeding, she has undoubted quality.
2 Savells' Petranella Gossip Girl JW
A good quality bitch, a little shorter in foreface than desirable, but nonetheless feminine with ample bone and body. Moved acceptably and close up to 1

PGB
Once again, a close decision with 1 just edging 2 out on head properties, as although 2 has a soft expression, I find the construction of her head more on the masculine size, whilst 1 oozes femininity. Both have good body, balance bone and feet and moved as they should with great ease. Once again, 1 perhaps just shading out 2 today in this department.

Yet again I was spoilt for choice with all three in this class being top class material, so it was once more all about splitting hairs. All are of excellent breed type and give every indication that they can all have as much promise in the Kennel as in the Ring.
1 Smiths Melverly Rihanna
What you see is what you get. Excels in balance, with a gorgeous darkly marked head, with gentle expression. Shapely body with nothing overdone and moves stylishly and steadily. Much like her daughter, she is also a model of distinction and up there with the best of them.
2 Mitchells' Peasblossom Aria
Give me a correctly constructed head, with expressive soulful eyes and my knees turn to jelly and this bitch has it in spades. Shame she had meet 1 on top form, as she too is a good looking bitch with many excellent breed points.

1 Topliss' Trimere Talk of The North
This daughter of two old favourites of mine has undoubted class with movement to match, which clinched her first place. She possesses an appealing head, with a gentle soft expression and dark eye. My view is that in full bloom, with a bit more finish and attention to her coat, she could push the boundaries a bit further. Hope she gets her chance.
2 Cockells' Carlyquinn Classic Line JW
A charming bitch, with which her owner/breeder should be very satisfied, as she has much going for her. She is of excellent construction and well balanced with a lengthy neck and correct shoulder placement. Somewhat lighter in eye than 1, but a head of good proportions. Her owner is now getting the best out of her on the move. She pushed 1 hard to only narrowly lose out.

When I last judged this l/w/t bitch I hoped that more success would come her way. Consistency of performance and appearance are not her prime virtues, and there are times she needs to carry more condition and can run up on the light side. What a relief to discover that she had turned up today as not only the real deal in the structural and fitness sense, but came with both the movement I was searching for and equally an attitude to match. As for her head properties, well all I can say is if you are looking for an example of the head that the Standard calls for, you need look no further. Her expression itself should melt any cold heart and her size and balance are picture perfect. She had it all to do to beat the rest today and she impressed with the way she did it. She took the Bitch CC and BIS over some serious opposition, due in no small part to the regal way she continued to float around the Ring, head held high, without a care in the world, as if to say ‘look here, I am the best’. It would be a shame if she cannot maintain this level to attain her rightful place in the upper house.
2 Smiths' Sh Ch Melverly Sublimity
I have made little secret of my admiration for this other star of the show and once again I am happy, as others have done, to sing her praises. If she was not to get the CC, then I was more than pleased to award her the Reserve CC to pay compliment to her many virtues. Reserve CC
