I would like to thank the officers and Committee for giving me the opportunity to judge the prestigious Parent Club show. I was so honoured to judge and was delighted with the entry unfortunately the weather had to be unkind and Ihad a few absentees. But I must thank all who entered and also who came and supported me. I really enjoyed the dogs and found many I liked very much with lovely breed type, good weight, substance, muscle tone and nice presentation were all evident.

Minor Puppy Bitch (3,1)

1 Mrs C Savell – Harvancourt Perfickly Fab With Petranella
charming 7 mth old with a lovely outline and refined head well chiselled. looks nice on the stance and lovely to go over, nice angles, very deep chest for ge with good depth of body and well sprung ribs, presented in nice coat with feathering coming, good legs and feet and moved really well and soundly.
2 Mrs A Corbett – Trimere Tranquiliser
Really liked this 6.5 months outline and beautiful shape. Sweet head and expression with good work and well balanced. In nice body condition with substance but is a real baby and needs a little more time to develop and tighten on the move. Good legs and feet and well presented.

Tyro Bitch (3,1)
1 Mr Hollender – Melvemere Gold Seal At Scoutwell
19 month old feminine l/w. Lovely girl with a soft head and expression with nice dark eyes. Good to go over wth good front and back end. Stylish to look at from the side with a nice outline but she is inclined to slope her topline occasionally so her handler must be aware of this. Moved very well, with lovely drive and very sound. Now just starting to become in good coat.
2 Mr & Mrs Warrener – Dexbenella Gracie May For Waterswarren
a nearly 2 year old l/w/t. Very bitch pretty with lovely head and expression. For me I would like a bit more front angulation and depth of chest. She has a lovely spring of rib with a nice amount of weight. Again she is another girl who is incline to slope her topline fractionally. Good rear angulation with a nice turn of stile. Moved well and soundly. Just a little out of coat at the moment.

Graduate Bitch (7,2)
1 Mrs A Corbett – Trimere Tantrums and Tiaras
A 2 year old l/w bitch that I have not really noticed until today. She has the most beautiful outline which is so very typical of this kennel. A stunning head and expression with lovely kind eyes. So nice to go over with a lovely front and depth of chest with a good spring of rib. She holds a lovely level topline on the stance and the move. Fabulous legs and tight feet with lovely bone. Good back end witha nice turn of stifle leading into nice short hocks. Again presented excellently as per usual from this kennel. She moved around the ring with plenty of drive and very sound, she decided to play her handler up a little but this could not stop her from winning this lovely class and ending up Resere Best Bitch.
2 Mr & Mrs Osbourne – Petranella Casts A Spell Over Braego
This young bitch is one that I have liked since a puppy and have always watched her with interest. Again she has a lovely outline and doesn't disappoint when you go over her. Feminine head and expression with a lovely dark eye. Arched neck leading into well laid back shoulders. Another who has a lovely depth of chest and good body to go over. Good level topline. Well set tail which never rose about the level of her back. Coming into good coat. The only things she lacked today was a little enthusiasm on the move, she didn't seem to put her all inito it and lacked a little drive and this swayed my decision between 1st and 2nd.

Post Graduate Bitch (9,3)
1 Mrs C Savell – Petranella Bloomin Lovely
and she sure is! I have loved this bitch from the first time I saw her and gave her BPIB at Bath and my feelings on her still have not changed. She has the most exquisite head and expression with a beautiful kind eye. She is wonderful to go over with everything in the correct place. Lovely front angulation with well laid back shoulders. Great body with a nice level topline. Good boned legs and tight feet. Well muscled behind. She is beautiful to look at from the side and does demand attention. Moves well but can be a fraction wide in front. She is coming into good coat and was presented to perfection. Very close to getting Reserve Best Bitch.
2 Mr & Mrs Warrener – Trimere Tease N Please For Waterswarren
l/w/t 2 year old. Very different to 1 but has similar qualities. She has a lovely outline and is very striking to look at. Again she has a lovely head with nice dark eyes. Strong, well arched neck leading into well laid back shoulders. Fabulous front angulation and good depth of chest.. Good firm topline over well sprung ribs. Good angulation behind with enough muscle tone. Moved extremely well with plenty of drive and was very sound. In lovely coat and condition but for me her coat is a little too ticked on the body which slightly swayed my decision.

Limit Bitch ( 4,0)
1 Mrs C Savell – Petranella Perfickly Dealt JW ShCM
I have done her well in the past but I don't think I have ever seen her as good as she has today!! As soon as she entered the ring she caught my attention. Presented in a gleaming l/w coat. I loved her overall balance and style. Her head is a beautiful shape with lovely chiselling and fluting with pretty expression. Good length of neck. Excellent well laid shoulders with great angulation and depth of chest. Good sprung ribs with a lovely firm topline on the stance and on the move. Well turned stifle with great muscle tone and lovely short hocks. Absolutely flew round the ring today with plenty of drive and so, so sound, excellently handled. She could not be denied Best Bitch and Reserve Best In Show to the beautiful dog.
2 Mrs C House – Gleadsbury Whataliberty JW
another very pretty bitch, so very nice to put your hands on and go over. Has all the true breed points, super head, well defined, lovely neck and shoulders, firm topline and well ribbed and bodied with good depth. Lovely balanced outline of height to length. Well presented coat, moved with a good stride and was sound. Hard decision between these two.

4 Mr & Mrs Guest – Robil Greta Garbo

Open Bitch (3,2)
1 Williams & Toublic – Cobhay Bright Fuchsia
now in her 5th year this bitch has developed over the past few months. Well balanced head, nice expression, well set ears. Good neck and shoulders, firm topline and well bodied with good spring of rib and nice substance. Enough angulation both ends with super straight well boned legs and tight feet. Has been out of coat for a long time and looks so much better now with her gleaming l/w coat and feathering coming. Moved out with drive and is sound both ends.

Special Beginners Bitch (3,1)
1 Mr & Mrs Warrener – Trimere Tease N Please For Waterswarren
2 Mrs H Cokell – Trimere Thrills and Frills JW
another very nice bitch from this successful kennel. Very attractive and feminine, today spoilt her outline and movement by being overweight. Sweet balanced head with lovely chiselling. Super neck to shoulders and topline, deep body just too much weight for advantage. lovely coat and presentation, good legs and feet. Movement a little laboured and unsettled.

Veteran Bitch (4,1)
1 Mr & Mrs Evans – Feorlig Burnt Embers
now 7 years old, she has what I look for in a head with correct expression, a gorgeous shape with lovely chiselling and fluting, super dark eyes and kind intelligent expression ,great ear set. Such a lovely outline and correct overall balance with substance. Nice arched neck and well laid shoulders, still holds a firm topline and nice carried tail, good depth of chest and well angulated front and hindquarters which are well muscled. Straight legs and tight feet. Stood and moved out today with drive and so so sound.
2 Williams & Toublic – Sericum Made In Heaven At Cobhay
at 12 years of age this lovely bitch is still holding her own. Lovely in stance and outline and has a great character. Nice feminine head and expression, eye colour good for her age. in good body weight with well sprung ribs, lovely depth and still well muscled. Presented well in good l/w coat with lovely feathering. Moved out soundly and so well for her age.
