1st SH CH TRIMERE TIGRA (MISS S J CORBETT)
has anyone told her that she’s now a veteran? Don’t think so if her movement is anything to go by. Flows round the ring like a dream. Reaches so well in front, really is copy book. On the move she does something really special, covers the maximum of ground with the minimum of effort. On the stack she shouts “springer” at you, ultra feminine with such an appealing outline. Will continue to trouble the best for quite a while yet I’m sure. Best Veteran.
2nd TIVERSTONE DREAMMAKER (MR M J & MRS J V SHOVEL)
dreamy she is indeed. Old favourite of mine. Just love her balanced head with expressive dark well shaped eyes. Strong neck, though I would like it a little longer. So well bodied. Loved her front legs into the best of feet. Great strength to quarters and nicely turned stifles. Short from hock to ground giving her plenty of propulsion at the rear. Overall thought she was a super bitch, excelling in breed type, style and substance. Just couldn’t match 1) on the move today.

1st CALVDALE ETERNAL LAW (MR & MRS M CALVERT)
stylish baby in an immaculate black and white outfit. Very smart with all the essentials albeit she didn’t quite know what to do with them today. Her first outing and no doubt she will quickly learn to “strut her stuff”. Loved her outline on the stack. Head still developing, but oohh that eye colour! Dark pools. Another with fabulous neck into shoulder. Super bone, great through the middle and really impressed by the width of her quarters and the super turn of stifle she has. Lovely angulation front and rear. Think there would be a disorderly queue if this one needed rehoming! BPB
2nd ROQFOLLY MISS MONEYPENNY (MS D EASTWOOD)
out of a totally different mold to the class winner. Smart young lady who moved with the most confidence in the class today. Lovely coat and presentation. Feminine head which will improve as her eyes darken a shade or two. Preferred neck into shoulder on the class winner. She has a lovely spring of rib and is well bodied and strong over the loin. Doesn’t need to carry any more weight. Will watch her progress with interest.

Lovely class, spoilt for choice really, all had virtues. Sure they will all change places at different times. Promising for the future.
1st CALVDALE HEARSAY (MR & MRS M CALVERT)
mature, quality tri of super substance, shape and type. Feminine head which will be enhanced when her eyes darken a touch. Great neck into shoulder. Best of bone and super feet. Compact, strong deep bodied girl. Loved her big fat bum. Looked like she was wearing her sister’s coat as well as her own! Needs to put her cooperating head on. Little monkey.
2nd TRIMERE TOUGH COOKIE (MRS A CORBETT)
Super type and shape. Just right for size. Impressive substance whilst retaining her femininity. Typical head which again will only improve when her eyes darken a little. Great bone and feet. Strong neck of decent length. Not wearing as heavy a coat as 1) but she really doesn’t need it as she pulls into a lovely shape.

1st MOMPESSON ROYAL FLUSH (MR R & MRS J REYNOLDS)
pleasing type of youngster who is moderate all through. Nothing exaggerated in any way. Correct size with decent height to length ratio. Typical, balanced head which won her the class today. Eyes do need to darken though. She has sufficient bone with good feet. Needs to drop a bit in body which is only to be expected at her age. Sure her owner will do a bit of winning with her.
2nd CHELMERESS GRETA GARBO (MR R F & MRS A L WILSON)
smart dark liver bitch shown in great coat and condition. Pleasing overall shape but at a bit of an “in-between “ stage at the moment. Pleasant head but again those eyes need to darken. Preferred the width in front of the class winner but time is on her side. Nicely ribbed up and has sound quarters.

1st CALVDALE MATERIAL WITNESS (MR & MRS M CALVERT)
mart ultra feminine young lady with more than a touch of quality all round. Sister to the Puppy Bitch winner but not having her depth of body at this stage. Great bone and super feet. (suspect this comes as standard on everything from this kennel). Just a little too much daylight under her today but sure she will drop as she matures. Her footfall is true but would like to see her to putting a little more drive into her movement . Very promising though. Really not sure which of the two sisters will finish the best. Nice to be in that position!
2nd ZIPHILL TENNESSEE GOLD (MISS B J ROSTRON)
compact youngster who unfortunately was not wearing her Sunday best today. Such a pity as it detracts from her such a lot. Quite difficult to assess fairly as she really wasn’t as one with her handler. Wanted her Mum I think. Did feel that she was of a decent enough type and with a bit of work on her presentation she could mature in the right direction.

1st TRIMERE TOTAL ECLIPSE (MISS S J CORBETT)
oved her type and shape. Style and angles in abundance. Balanced head with good expression. Eyes still need to darken (how many times have I said that in this critique now?) Striking , eye catching coat on her and she really fills the eye. Plenty of bone on her and super feet. Lovely turn of stifle and well made quarters. Has a tendancy to roll a little on the move. When she got into her stride, at the correct speed, this corrected itself. Didn’t bother me at all. Promising.
2nd PEASBLOSSOM GEISHA AT MEONSTOKE (MRS K C TAUBMAN)
totally different type of bitch to the class winner. Smaller, darker, neater bitch presented in excellent coat and condition. Very pretty, balanced feminine head with expressive eyes. Clean neck into shoulder. Compact body with a lovely spring of rib and strength over the loin. Doesn’t help her handler much on the stack. Bit of a madam I suspect. Moved soundly and steadily.

1st CALVDALE DIAMOND HEIST J W SH C M (MR & MRS M CALVERT)
aptly named for she is indeed a little gem. Although she wasn’t the biggest girl here, she caught my eye immediately as she lacks for nothing. Perfectly packaged in near pristine condition. Smart and dark and a reminder of things from the past. Fell for her at a club show last year and think she has just got better and better. She is ultra feminine but has oodles of substance. Great bone and depth of body. Excellent height to length ratio. You do need to look through the furnishings to assess this though, as her coat is both profuse and long. Deep sighs, oh to be in that position, do I or don’t I take off 3 inches from my bitches feathers?!!! Did it for me today in a very strong line up. Could not resist giving her the bitch CC. Hope the others follow soon.
2nd PETRANELLA GOSSIP GIRL JW (MS C P SAVELL)
really fell for this one too. Adored her type. Caught my eye as soon as she walked into the ring. Fell for her well balance head with fabulous eye colour giving her that springery expression. Lovely sized, feminine bitch with an air of quality about her. Impressive bone and her super tight cat feet just blend into her limbs. Nicely ribbed, short from hock to heel and plenty of strength in the quarters. Will look out for this one, sure she will be making an impact.

1st PEASBLOSSOM ARIA (MR & MRS D MITCHELL)
well for those of you out there who have decided to read this critique through to the end (I suspect some of you may have lost the will to live!) I hope you have gleaned that I like my males fit and my females feminine. Yet again my notes read “ultra feminine”. Bit of a Kylie Minougue is this one, petite, pretty and in perfect shape. Just enough of her all through. Compact neat and tidy. (talking about the bitch now by the way). No mistaking her gender whatsoever. Hope she gets her crowning ticket, she deserves to.
2nd MELVERLY SOPHISTIQUE (MR R J SMITH)
I can understand why this bitch appeals to so many. Stronger-made bitch who pulls into a great shape by this clever handler who always gets the best from his springers on the stack. Clearly out of a larger mold than my class winner, she excels in bone, has super feet and her fabulous quarters are to die for. Her head is refined and she has a lovely dark eye. A little long in muzzle for my own particular taste. Lovely clean front legs, well bodied and ribbed up, strong firm topline. No doubt whatsoever that she will get made up and rightly so.

well the first thing you fall for on this super young lady is that totally balanced refined, exquisite head with beautiful expression from eyes that suck you in. Really quite beautiful from any angle. Teaming with quality. Correct size and is easy on the eye all through. Loved her super legs and feet. Great neck into clean refined shoulders. Reachy long stride on the move. Another that shouts “springer” at you. I’m in no doubt that she will get made up. RCC
2nd SH CH CALVDALE MY GIRL OF FALLENLEAF JW SHCM (MR & MRS G & J CUNLIFFE)
another lovely girl who is more compact than 1). Although her head is balanced and feminine I still preferred 1)’s head and eye colour but this one was better “through the middle”. She has great bone and feet, is well ribbed and strong through the couplings. She really strides out well, driving off short rear pasterns. No doubt she will continue to take a few more tickets along the way.

pretty black and white lady shown in lovely coat and condition. Sweet head with a lovely dark eye and a kind expression. Neat and tidy feet on this girl with sufficient bone. Nicely ribbed with strong quarters. Tail nicely set on. Moved steadily, not putting a foot wrong. Little poppet.
