BCC & BIS Sh Ch Calvdale Claire Blake JW RBCC Taimere The Songthrush at Melverly

Minor Puppy Bitch
1st Palmers' ROANDEW FARR FROMMIT
L & w. 7 months, wonderful outline just on the right side of feminine. Lovely front with excellent bone. Good feet and strong pasterns. Well sprung with strong coupling. Level top lone, not much tail, but whose fault is that? Wonderful rear angulation. Very forward for one so young. She moved positively. BPIS
2nd Mitchell & Beatons' ALANEA FLAME FOR PEASBLOSSOM
L/w/t. Just over six months, such a sweetie. Really feminine all through. Pretty head, good eye shape and colour. Lovely outline and balance, moved very soundly. This class I enjoyed with three litter sisters all in a line like peas in a pod. The first three could swap at any stage in the future. She lost out to 1 on maturity.
3rd Tattersalls' Alanea Elegance

Puppy Bitch
1st Topliss' BERESFORD DRESS TO IMPRESS
Mature 10 month l&w who again is just on the right side of feminine. Good shape and make of head with full muzzle and flew. Good neck and ribs. Well off for bone and angulation. Put enough in on the move and won the class with ease.
2nd Jaconellis' LACEBY DEVIL'S DELIGHT
VHC out of minor puppy which exemplifed the strength of the minor puppy class. She deserved her placing with good head and eye. Nice outline, feminine curves. Like to see a touch more bone.
3rd Greens' Anacapa Sweet Dreams at Kennair

Junior Bitch
1st Smiths' TAIMERE THE SONGTHRUSH AT MELVERLY
L & W. What a little cracker for one so young. 14 month maturing bitch who was in good condition. Such a sweet feminine head with a kind expression and so well balanced throughout. Strong nicely arched neck into excellent shoulders. She was feminine all the way through with the right amount of bone and rib. So well coupled with a slight arch over a strong loin. Correct tail set and well let down hindquarters with the lowest of rear pasterns. Her movement improved, especially her forehand in the challenge. She just needed a longer dress to impress. Again as with the dog challenge she gave far too much away to the open bitch, I was honoured to award her the Res CC and I am sure there is a lot more to come from this up to now hidden talent.
2nd Topliss' BERESFORD BLAISE
Very clean cut young lady with good angulation throughout. A sweet head and eye, has a well balanced frame. Lost out on 1 on maturity. More sound than 3.
3rd Millers' Feoligh Naughty By Nature

Yearling Bitch
1st Palmers' ROANDEW DAISY DUNNIT JW
L & W. Upstanding bitch who has a strong head and good bone. Slightly longer cast than her brother. She won the class on her sounder movement. She was more mature than her competitors and has good ribs and couplings. Good fat bum and well developed thighs. Deserved the class on the day.
2nd Millers' FEORLIG NAUGHTY BY NATURE
Disappointed that this sweet girly did not put enough into the move to take the class. Different shape than 1, although can compete on bone and ribs. Not so long cast as 1 her movement was moribund which is unusual from this kennel.
3rd Astons' Tasa Ray of Sunshine

Novice Bitch
1st Smiths' TAIMERE THE SONGTHRUSH AT MELVERLY
2nd Muirheads' SHIPDEN DAINTY MAID APPLE ROSE
L & W 16 month. Pretty, pretty girlie, such a sweet head and kind expression. Super front assembly. Well balanced with good body and couplings. Nicely angled rear. Just giving too much away to 1. The picture will be complete when her long gown appears.
3rd Topliss' Beresford Dress To Impress

Graduate Bitch
1st Thornhills' KETSBY KERFUFFLE AT INTHOR
L & W. 2 year old, good shape head with nice dark eye. Balanced outline with level top line. Good rear angulation. In coat with sufficient bone and ok feet. Moved soundly.
2nd Lengs' MOMPESSON EMBRACE
Not so feminine as 1, heavier head and more throat. Longer cast than winner, moved ok.
3rd Delantys' Dingdarlin Summer Dream

Post Graduate Bitch
1st Savells' PETRANELLA COUNT ME IN
L & W. Sweet head, strong neck and tight throat. A lovely outline with good angulation. Balanced girl with good rump and tail set. Just the right amount of coat. She has matured nicely and was a contender in the challenge.
2nd Scotts' ELIMVEK EARLY LANDING AT LOSSIEDOON
Another l & w who put in a strong bid for this class. Quarter size up on 1, still girly with a lovely shape and excellent angulation. Splitting hairs it was the darker eye of 1 which tipped the balance.
3rd Bowers' Calvdale Sweet Justice

Limit Bitch
1st Jenkinsons' EASTRIDING ARMANI
b/w, nearly 3 years old, niced balanced head and dark eye giving kind expression. A maturing bitch who is not quite there yet. Good level top line, excellent front and back assembly. Good ribs and coupling. Needs to shed a few ounzes then she would put more into her movement.
2nd Millers' FEORLIG CRYSTAL CLEAR JW
B/W/T 4 year old. Nice shape with good front angles. Well sprung with good length of rib and strong coupling. Moderately angled behind. Just starting to mature off. The best mover from this kennel today.
3rd Kirks' Caraday Delightful JW

Open Bitch
1st Calverts' Sh Ch CALVDALE CLAIRE BLAKE JW
3 year old. Lovely outline, gorgeous shape. Wonderful head, eye and muzzle. Good depth and chiselling under the eye. Nice strong neck into excellent shoulders. Good bone and compact feet. Well sprung ribs with muscular loin. Well angled pelvis into strongly developed rear. Close gleaming cloat. She moved with purpose, so she should as she was in such hard condition. CC and was honoured to award her BIS.
2nd Ganarins' SH CH ELIMVEK EARLY PROMISE JW
Super outline, very feminine. Loved her style and grace, not overdone in any quarter. She moved soundly. Much preferred tail set of this lady. Her movement was sound in this class, however in the challenge for the RCC, the junior bitch improved enough to edge out this worthy champion.
3rd Roses' Rosannoch Tiwaz JW

Special Beginners Bitch
1st Hays' TRALAY TINKER BELLE
L/W. Won the class on maturity. Sweet head and eye with kind expression, stuff in neck. Nice top line and ribs. Good bone and angulation. Moved soundly.
