 Firstly I’d like to wish Christina Daniels a speedy recovery, and then I’d like to thank the Officer’s & Committee of the parent club for choosing me as their replacement judge. Thank you also to the exhibitors who had entered under Christina & still turned up to seek my opinion. I had a wonderful day, some excellent examples of the breed to go over, & all placings were met with a loud round of applause.

Minor Puppy Dog 2 (1)
1st Hollender’s Scoutwell Entangled. Nicely sized 8 month old boy with a typical outline. Head has enough work in for his age, good eye shape, colour still to darken as one would expect, good angulation front & back, well off for coat & moved with the exuberance of youth.

Puppy Dog 2
1st Large’s Meadowdale Riot Is Madaza. 11 month old boy, up to size & standing on great legs & feet. I felt his head still needs to break & finish & his eye needs to darken, but he has plenty of time. Good length of neck in well laid shoulders, well sprung ribs, well muscled rear quarters which he used to advantage on the move. Best Puppy Dog
2nd Walker’s Dexbenella Time To Dream. A real baby of 9 months, again head still needs to develop & eye to darken, but nothing wrong at this stage. Enough neck, flowing into adequate shoulders. Presented a typical outline when stood just a bit unsettled when moved due to some rather unruly dogs caged close to the ring.

Junior Dog 4 (1)
1st Smith’s Melverley Symphonick. Presents a striking outline when stood, although would prefer a tad more leg length to be ultra critical! Standing on good legs & feet, typical head with plenty of work & although his eye could be a shade darker, this does not affect his soft, kind expression. Strong arched neck into well laid shoulders, strong rear quarters used to drive around the ring. Pushed hard for the top spot, Res Best Dog.
2nd Arnold’s Love Cats. A well presented 13 month old young man. A little heavy in flew & throat for me. Good length of neck into well laid shoulders, well muscled rear quarters.
3rd Weyman’s Donardon Trailblazing For Spuffing

Novice Dog 2 (1)
1st Smith’s Melverly Symphonick

Tyro Dog 1 (1)

Graduate Dog 2 (1)
1st Dunsdon & Woodbridge’s Seaspring Shipwrecked JW. 20 month old presenting a typical outline when standing. I thought he had a lovely head & expression, strong neck into well laid shoulders, great bone & muscle tone, his feet aren’t his fortune. Well presented in clean, hard condition.

Postgraduate Dog 5 (2)
1st Walker’s Dexbenella It’s About Time JW ShCM. L/W/T lad in full coat. He has a nice shape to him, although personally I’d like a bit more body depth, I hope this comes with maturity. Glorious head, with plenty of work in, soft, kind expression. Another with good bone, tight feet, excellent muscle tone, moved well in the limited space. Well presented.
2nd Dunsdon & Woodbridge’s Seaspring Shipwrecked JW.
3rd Large’s Mompesson Flawless Is Madaza

Limit Dog 4 (4)

Open Dog 2 (1)
1st Cokell’s Trimere Transition To Carlyquinn JW. Alone, but more than worthy of his placing. A quality exhibit, nicely sized & good outline. Head could be a tad more “refined” form my liking, lovely eye shape & colour, strong square muzzle, strong neck into well laid shoulders. Short coupled body, well muscled quarters, moved with real purpose & drive. Best Dog

Special Beginners Dog 3 (1)
1st Large’s Mompesson Flawless is Madaza. This dog was 3rd in a good Post Grad class. A nice sized dog, nothing overdone, well balanced. Pleasant head, although eye still needs to darken, best of feet, well muscled rear end, moved well
2nd Arnold’s Love Cats

Veteran Dog 1
1st Young’s Shelcasrie Flash Sh CM. 7yr old gent with tremendous muscletone, this dog feels as if he’s done many a day’s work! Good sized dog, just starting to show his age in his face, typical head & expression, great bone, ribs well sprung, moved with real drive. Best veteran Dog

Minor Puppy Bitch 2 (1)
1st Reynold’s Mompesson Royal Flush. 7 month old young lady, really enjoying her day out, full of beans as they should be! Nice size & shape, adequate bone. Sweet head, that still needs time to break & mature, good coat & moved well enough when settled.

Puppy Bitch 4 (1)
Really difficult to split these 2 young bitches as there was so much to like about them both.
1st Walker’s Dexbenella Derethea. Such a sweet & elegant young lady, what she gave away in maturity I felt she made up for in size, balance & that “X factor”! sweetest of heads, eyes still need to darken. Glorious neck & shoulders, correct ribbing, short coupled, Loved her! Best Puppy Bitch & Best Puppy in Show
2nd Corbett’s Trimere Total Eclipse. Another delightful bitch puppy, although more mature thAnother delightful bitch puppy, although more mature than 1, I felt she was a tad long in rib & I preferred 1’s head & expression. That said she had a lovely neck that flowed into correctly laid back shoulders, her rear angulation matched her front & she moved out well.

Junior Bitch 4 (2)
1st Smith’s Melverly Sophistique. Another delightful young lady full of quality, this kennel certainly has the correct “mould” for producing these!! Beautiful outline, feminine head that’s still not at its best & I hope when finished will really complete the picture. Great neck into well laid shoulders, good depth of rib & body. Lovely bone & feet, well balanced rear angulation used to her advantage on the move. I liked her a lot. Reserve best bitch & Reserve Best in Show.
2nd Woodbridge’s Crackerjanne Call Me Madam. different type of bitch to 1, sweet feminine head with plenty of work in, true springer expression using her already darkening eyes. Gleaming dark liver coat, well off for bone, well muscled thighs, to be ultra critical, I’d like her half inch to an inch higher on the leg to balance her out, but that’s only my opinion.

Tyro Bitch 1 (1)

Graduate Bitch
1st Cole’s Trimere Touch Of Romance. my notes say “nice clean, balanced outline” on this bitch, standing on great legs & feet. Head a little plain at the moment & eyes still to darken but pleasant enough. Lovely length of neck into well laid shoulders. Nice rear angulation, moved out well, presented in good condition.
2nd Weyman’s Donardon Sweet Sensation At Spuffing. At 1st glance this bitch did nothing for me, but on getting my hands on her I found her decent enough. A good size, nice angles front & back, feminine head, again another who’s eye still needs to darken. Moved OK. This bitch needs trimming better, to show off her attributes.
3rd Woodbridges’s Crackerjanne Call me Madame
4th Towell’s Beresford Airs ‘N’ Graces

Post Graduate Bitch 
1st Corbett’s Trimere Touch of Black, a nice sized B/W bitch presenting a lovely balanced outline when stood. Was not disappointed when getting my hands on her either. Darkest of eyes all day & melting expression, with plenty of work in her head. Strong neck, good angulation front & back, well let down hocks & a lovely round bum which she used well on the move, close up in the challenge.
2nd Cole’s Trimere Touch of Romance

Limit Bitch 6 (4)
1st Cunliffe’s Calvdale My Girl Of Fallenleaf. Wow, what a beautiful bitch! she came into the ring & demanded my attention. From the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail she oozes quality, femininity & springer type. I loved her feminine, well worked head, yes her eyes could be a shade darker, so what! Her strong neck flows into correct shoulders, her short coupled body is well muscled, & put down to perfection. She moved with true front extension & rear drive, I loved her. Best Bitch & Best in Show
2nd Clarke & Hipgrave’s Ternspringer Melody. did not stay for critique!

Open Bitch
1st Corbett’s Trimere Tantrums And Tiaras. Close decision between the first 2 in this class. Delightful bitch, well made & balanced, although I think a tad heavy over her shoulders today. Good bone & feet, I found her head & expression more appealing than 2nd, correct shoulders, well angled rear, did enough when moving round the ring.
2nd Cokell’s Carlyquinn Classic Line JW. similar attributes as the winner, lighter on her feet when moving, not the head or expression of the winner but still a quality bitch
3rd Hipgrave’s Ir Sh Ch Ternspringer You’re A Lady

Special Beginners Bitch 1 (2)
1st Cole’s Trimere Touch Of Romance

Veteran Bitch 6 (3)
1st Walker’s Trimere Total Devotion To Dexbenella JW ShCM. 9 yr old lady showing some of the youngsters how to move! Just starting to show her years now in her muzzle, but that apart you’d never know it. Dark eye & melting expression, strong neck into well laid shoulders, great bone, super feet, great ribs & well muscled thighs. Delightful, quality bitch. Best Veteran Bitch & Best Veteran in Show.
2nd Young’s Shipden Panama Hattie At Shelcasrie. another 9yr old lady really enjoying her day out. Dark, gleaming L/W jacket balanced angulation, moved out well.
