Firstly I apologise for the time it has taken me to write my critique, but due to the fact my mum is very poorly in hospital and daily visits have been taking all of my time

I would like to thank the committee for the opportunity to judge this year being my first appointment awarding CC’s, and for the lovely gift bestowed upon me
My thanks to the exhibitors for allowing me the privilege of going over your dogs and accepting my decisions in a sporting manner. It’s not until you judge at this level do you realise the enormity of it and wish you had more than one first prize card for each class, as some lovely dogs and bitches had to take their place further down the line this time. In my final line ups I feel that anyone of them could have had that green card, but today I went with my heart.
Lastly I would like to thank my lovely stewards who kept me in order and in tea.

1 Topliss Beresford Night Do
up to size youngster carrying a dark liver jacket. He has good colour and shape to his eyes giving him a pleasing expression, which were set in line with his ear. He had good length of neck into well placed shoulders and having good return of upper arm. Well off for fore chest and ribbing up nicely. Good length to height ratio and elbows neatly tucked in. short in loin moving over to a well-shaped rear with good angles all through and standing on good legs and feet. Moved a little erratically but handled sympathetically and settled well. BPD

1 Greenwoods Trimere Tick Tock at Eastfalla
15 month old flashy LW who gives the appearance of being quite feminine until you get up to him and go over him. I loved his head; he has lovely dark well shaped eyes and plenty of work in the skull. A lovely arched reachy neck into excellent lay of shoulder and good return of upper arm. Lovely depth of rib to this boy and nice tight elbows. Good length of back and well coupled. Well set tail with lovely lively action. Stands on nice tight feet with good bone and in good coat and condition.
2 Savell & Allen Plaiglen All That Jazz with Allenie
14 months old with dark liver jacket. Nice clean lines on this dog, he had good eye shape and colour and well set. Nicely arched neck into well placed shoulders, his chest was deep and well developed and elbow well set to the body. Showed strength in back and well coupled, adequate bend of stifle and well-muscled second thigh. Stood on well boned legs and tight feet and presented in lovely condition.

1 Smith Melverly Top Geezer
A nice sized LW dog and no denying this boys sex, he has a well-defined head with required chiselling and well-shaped flew. Good eye shape but colour needs to darken a little more to finish the picture. He has plenty on neck which is arched and strong onto well laid shoulders and he is well off for fore chest and good depth of rib, he is strong in loin and well coupled and carries a well set tail. He is well off for bone and has tidy feet and moved well. Just needs his full furnishings now to complete the picture
2 Croucher Teignvalley Blaser
a dog I have liked from outside the ring for a long time but sadly was unlucky to meet 1st today. LWT boy who is up to size and excels in bone. Slightly longer cast than my first placed dog and bigger mould all through. However he has a lovely dark eye with a melting expression, his neck is of moderate length into well placed shoulders and good return of upper arm. He is deep in brisket and has a well-developed fore chest. Slightly longer in loin into well-muscled rear quarters. Stands on good feet and in beautiful coat and condition but just moved a little erratic today.

1 Glendinning & Boole Plaiglen Beaters Btrue
Black & white dog I have liked for a long time, this boy was in the best of coats and condition today. He has gorgeous dark eyes giving him the most wonderful kind expression. Plenty of work in his skull and enough depth to his flews but not overdone in any way. He is clean in neck which is slightly arched and flows into well placed shoulders and good return of upper arm. He has good forehand construction and enough bone. He has ample depth of chest and is well ribbed up. Short in loin and good strong hind quarters. He stands on good legs and nice feet. Moved well today, pleased to award him RDCC and I wish you well for the future.
2 Calverts Calvdale Keelman Jw
A different stamp to my first and a slightly bigger build all through. He is square and deep in flew and has good eye shape and colour with a pleasing expression. Good length of slightly arched neck into nice shoulder placement. He is well ribbed up and has good depth to his chest. Straight well boned front assembly and nice tight feet. He is muscular all through and well coupled. Has good rear quarters and stands on good legs. I didn’t feel he moved his best today and just needs his furnishings to complete the picture.

1 Bott & Savell Artwaves Sanding Ovation or Allenie
what a lovely boy, and for me correct size and shape. He has plenty of work in his head and the requisite chiselling, lovely dark eyes of correct shape and well set, giving him a lovely melting expression. He is strong in neck which is slightly arched and flows into well laid shoulders. Good return of upper arm, straight well boned front assembly. He is well ribbed up giving him plenty of heart and lung room and is well off for fore chest. He is short in loin and shows strength in back and is well coupled. He has a well-rounded bottom and good rear angulation and stands on good bone and tight feet. He powers round the ring enthusiastically but a slightly slower pace just finishes the overall picture of this dog. He was shown in good coat and excellent condition. Pleased to award him his 2nd CC and BIS and feel his title won’t be far away.
2 Whittocks Kingsheath William Regal
on first view of my line up I thought this would be my class winner but sadly not today. A dog I have liked from outside the ring and similar to my first just slightly bigger all through. He has a lovely head with kind dark eyes which are well set. Strong slightly arched neck into well laid shoulders. Straight front assembly, well off for bone and tight rounded feet and elbows neatly tucked in, he has plenty of depth and is well ribbed up. He shows strength in back and is well coupled. Lovely rounded bottom and good bend of stifle and well developed second thigh. In lovely coat and condition but sadly his movement let him down today as he just didn’t have that get up and go like my winner.

1 Mitchell Sh Ch Peasblossom Jester
LWT dog which I last judged as a puppy and my feelings for him haven’t changed. He has the most glorious of dark liver jackets and was shown in tip top condition. He has a lovely dark eye, correct shape and well set. Flat cheeks and square deep flews. Slightly arched reachy neck into well laid shoulders. He is deep in chest and well sprung ribs with neatly tucked in elbows, short in loin and well coupled with strength in back. Nicely shaped rear and good angles all through. He is well boned and stands on tight well shaped feet, for me his movement today wasn’t as good as I know he can produce.
2 Cokell Sh Ch Carlyquinn Can't Wait JW ShCM
Never judged this dog before and found him pleasing to go over. He has a dark eye which is of correct shape and set. Not quite as deep or square in flew as my first but still has enough, he has a reachy neck into good shoulder placement, plenty of fore chest and well ribbed up. He is nice and straight in front and well off for bone. He has lovely angles all through and is well muscled. He moved well but just didn’t have the finish of my first

1 Cummings Carlyquinn Come on Over to Hollysend
flashy LW dog in good coat and condition and looking good for his age. He has nice shape and colour to his eyes with a pleasant expression. Good reach of neck into fair shoulder placement. Nice and straight in front with lovely neat feet. He has good depth to his chest and plenty of heart and lung room. He is still well muscled through his back end and has a nice bend of stifle. He moved well and his tail never stopped wagging.
2nd Terry Richardsons Cherysham Bright Knight, this boy is slightly longer on the leg than my first placed, he has a nice head and eyes are well set although just starting to pale, he has a good neck which still shows strength and his shoulder placement was good. He is ok for bone and still has nice tight feet. Elbows still tidy and ribs well sprung. Not quite the rear as number one and a tad straight. He moved ok but didn’t have the tail action as one.

1 Morgan Kennair Dreaming on a Star
an older type of dog and honest all through, he has to be gone over to appreciate him because of his heavily ticked coat. He has a nice dark eye which is of correct shape and well set, he has deep square flews but lacks a little fluting. Good length and strength to his neck leading into nice shoulder placement and a lovely straight front assembly with nice tight feet. He has well sprung ribs and plenty of depth with elbows tight. Short in loin and well coupled. Nicely rounded rear, and plenty of muscle. Moved ok

wow what a little gem, this girl ticked all my boxes, she had lovely clean lines and everything was just right about her. Plenty of work in her skull, nice deep flews but not doggy, eyes dark and well set, she had a clean arched neck into good lay back of shoulder and return of upper arm. Well off for fore chest and plenty of depth, nice neat elbows and straight in front with plenty of bone, she was short in loin and well coupled. Good rear end with lovely shape, she moved with drive when settled BPB & BPIS one I will watch for sure.
2 Greenfield Eastfalla Jesta Minuet
another lovely puppy to watch for the future. Similar to my winner so a lot of the same comments apply, just not quite the head as my first so this was the decider in this class. She moved well when settled.

another puppy from the top drawer, a mature puppy and blossoming very nicely. A lovely dark eye of correct shape and well set. She has a nice strong and slightly arched neck leading into lovely shoulder placement. Good return of upper arm and straight front and stands on neat feet. Plenty of fore chest and depth. Nice length of back and well coupled, lovely rear end which has good angles and toned. In lovely coat and condition, moved well.
2 Lawler & Lambert Artycreath Devil Made'r Do It
pretty bitch but unlucky to meet one today as not as mature and it showed in her movement as she was quite unsettled. She has a nice dark eye which is of good shape, she is very feminine, and not quite the neck of one but it’s of good length and flows into good shoulders. She has ample depth and enough bone and feet need to tighten slightly. A pleasing back end with good angles, bit erratic on the move

1 Tain Westaway Touch of Magic for Taimere
lots to like about this bitch, she has a lovely dark liver jacket and has very clean lines all through, she was in lovely condition but just needs her furnishings for a complete picture. She had a nice dark eye of good shape and set, good square flews and flat cheeks. Nice and clean in throat and strength to neck which was slightly arched and flowed into well placed shoulders. Enough depth of chest and well ribbed up. Slightly longer in length than my previous class winners but she was in good hard condition and had well-rounded rear quarters. Standing on good legs and feet, movement was not her forte today as she wanted to play however when we saw movement she moved well.
2 Henson Roqfolly Czech Maid at Kobrocobi
Lwt bitch that needs to gain confidence and mature, eyes need to darken but that will come as she matures. She had a good length of neck into well placed shoulders; plenty of depth but fore chest needs to develop yet. Ok for bone but feet need to tighten, she is short in loin and well coupled and had a pleasing back end, erratic on the move

1 Topliss Beresford What The Devil
a lovely LWT bitch who I considered in the top honours today and I’m sure it won’t be long before she gets there. She is a very feminine girl that needs close inspection. Carrying a nice head with dark correct shape eyes, ample neck into good shoulder placement. Well sprung ribs giving her plenty of heart and lung room, straight in front assembly, well off for bone and tight neat feet. She is well angled at the rear and good tail carriage on the move. She tends to take off a little fast but when steadied up moves out nicely.
2 Williams & Toublic Cobhay Dazzling Azalea
more of an old type ESS, she has a nice dark eye of good shape and well set, she had a good length of neck and nice shoulder placement. Being picky I found her to be a little throaty. Not quite the bone or depth of my first but she has enough for a bitch. She was well toned and in good hard condition and she moved well round the ring

a lovely compact B & W girl with a gorgeous expression who only lost out today on movement as she just lacked that little bit of extra sparkle. She is clean in throat and has a good length of neck into good shoulder placement. Plenty of depth and well sprung ribs, neat front assembly, and straight in front with good bone and feet. Short in loin and well coupled, nice and neat rear which has good angles and she is well muscled. In good coat and glorious condition.

1 Cunliffe ShCh/IrShCh Calvdale My Girl of Fallenleaf JW ShC
LWT bitch whom I have judged before and she never disappoints. She was in full coat and super condition and she certainly doesn’t act her age. She is a very feminine bitch with good eye colour, shape and well set. She has a well-muscled slightly arched neck into good shoulder placement. Plenty of depth and good fore chest, elbows nicely tucked in. she has good bone and stands on tidy feet. Plenty of heart and lung room in well-developed ribs, short in loin and well coupled, good tail set and carries it well on the move with non-stop action. Not over done in any way moved with drive and purpose but sadly a little close in the challenge today.
2 Young Shellcasrie Dancing Queen
B & W bitch who is slightly longer in back than my first placed, she has a lovely melting expression from dark well shaped eyes. Would like a little more definition in skull. Good neck into well placed shoulders but not the depth of 1st. ok for coat and condition and moved out well
