1st: 6363 WHITLEY Mr & Mrs D J Shipden Will Hay 7 ½ year old b/w all male dog. He has a wonderful dark, almond shape eye, a very good straight front with plenty of heart room with good well boned legs on thick padded feet. Slightly longer in length of back than I prefer, but super muscled hind quarters on a good length of hock. He was more interested in the sniffs on the ground than showing me his sound movement!

1st: 6323 LAWLER Mr G H Roqfolly Hugo Drax . 9 month b/w/t youngster. Have to say he didn’t grab my attention when I first saw him but what a lovely dog to go over. Good size, well boned, wonderful dark eye with an alert, kind expression. Good length of neck into well placed shoulders, well sprung rib, overall a really balanced looking, right for age pup. He moved a little erractically but he was sound fore and aft. Beautifully presented.
2nd: 6280 CALVERT Mr & Mrs M Calvdale Great Escape What a picture this dog is on the stand. So mature for his age. His head is coming along nicely and has great depth of body and so very well boned. Wasn’t moving as well as I am sure he is able, but he’s a baby! Will watch this dogs progress with interest.
3rd: 6324 LILLIE Mr & Mrs J M Eastriding Cavalli Really liked this young dog, just needs to grow in confidence.

1st: 6313 HOLMAN Mrs C Artycreath Apollo A beautifully presented 15 month l/w. Really good, straight front, well boned, good depth of chest for age. I liked his eye shape and colour. Super length to height ratio, moved with drive and soundly.
2nd: 6334 MURRAY, Mrs J A & BERRY Miss G L Petranella Bedazzled By Harvancourt I found this L/w/t dog to be slightly short of upper arm, but overall a smart young dog with a lovely depth of chest and spring of rib. Really broad, strong backend. Handler needs to be careful not to stand this dog out at elbow – because he isn’t.

Two wonderful young dogs, very different in type but both with super qualities.
1st: 6301 GLENDINNING Ms F Plaiglen Hustle Beautiful b/w dog, so lovely to go over. Your hands just glide over his body. Perfect for size, the most wonderful head, beautifully proportioned and super melting dark eye. Loved him for his length of neck, shoulder placement and return of upper arm. In wonderful condition, well muscled and super sound on the move. In the class he was moved slightly too fast; in the challenge, he looked a picture, moved like a dream and pushed the CC winner very hard. RCC.
2nd: 6297 EYEINGTON Mr & Mrs S Meadowdale Banjo JW Such a handsome, grown up dog, hard to believe he has not reached his second birthday. He is such a lovely shape and is a real eye catcher as soon as he comes into the ring. Lovely eye colour and shape on his well made l/w/t head, chiselling is coming along nicely. Grand depth of body, really good spring of rib. Wonderful to watch on the move going around, personally would prefer slightly less feathering as when he came towards me as I was a tad distracted by his profuse leg feathering.

1st: 6298 EYEINGTON Mr & Mrs S Meadowdale Chaos JW Thought this dog was just lovely. Fabulous typical shape. So well balanced and proportioned, masculine with no trace of coarseness, I would prefer a slightly darker eye, but I am being picky, excellent neck and shoulder into a firm, well ribbed body. On well boned legs and lovely feet. Moved well with a good length of stride fore and aft.
2nd: 6293 DUNSDON, Ms T & WOODBRIDGE Mrs C Seaspring Shipwrecked JW Really impressed with this old fashioned Springer. Just right for age and what you see is what you get. Just loved his masculine head with absolutely no trace of coarseness. with a lovely kind eye, good straight front on well boned legs, muscular well shaped backend, no mistaking the exercise this dog gets. Moved soundly with style.
3rd: 6341 SHOVEL Mr M. J & Mrs J.V Tiverstone Chorister Boy B/w dog finished a trio of lovely dogs.

Another lovely class, nit picking, particularly with the first
1st: 6327 MILLER Miss K F Roqfolly Aftershock At Feorlig Mature l/w dog, absolutely on fire today. His attitude, condition, balanced sound, super driving movement won him this class and eventually the CC. He is not a flashy in your face kind of dog, but putting your hands on him makes you appreciate his many qualities. No exaggeration on this dog, good length of neck into well laid shoulders, straight, well boned front onto lovely neat feet, just right for height to length, lovely bend of stifle and excellent second thigh, kept his topline powering around the ring. Was delighted to award him the CC.
2nd: 6342 SHOVEL Mr M. J & Mrs J.V Tiverstone Kingston Black Another sound typical b/w, would be happy to have him live with me! Beautiful head, with the most lovely chiselling around his well shaped dark eye, beautifully presented and handled, I particularly liked his strong, muscular rear, good forehand, mature, deep chested, well ribbed boy. He moved soundly but just didn’t have the verve of 1.
3rd: 6310 HAPPS Mrs A C Jorobaden Alderniti Of Emianna JW Really liked this dog, will watch him with interest whenever I get to a show!

What a fabulous class, I had judged some of these dogs previously and had placed them highly, no shame at all that they weren’t higher in the cards. What a lucky girl to be able to judge them all! Such quality
1st: 6308 GUY Mrs & Miss J Sh Ch Calvdale False Arrest
3 year old dog in his prime. He moved with such attitude it was a pleasure to watch is sound driving movement. I fell for beautiful, well shaped head, and lovely dark, soft kind eye. Wonderful width to his lovely straight front, excellent depth of body with a terrific spring of rib, broad, muscular backend, lovely boy.
2nd: 6330 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D Sh Ch Nord Barecho Hold Your Horses At Peasblossom
What an ambassador for our breed. Such excellent sound, driving movement from superb muscular quarters. Beautiful let down hocks. He is just beginning to grey slightly around his eyes, but this only emphasises his lovely dark, kind eye. Has the best of legs and feet, depth and all over is just “quality”. He will always be one of my all time favourites.

1st: 6343 SHOVEL Mr M. J & Mrs J.V Tiverstone Dreammaker
Such a standard, well made, good sound moving veteran. She has a most beautifully shaped head and lovely shaped dark, dark eye. In first class condition, certainly belies her age. A credit to the breed and her breeders.
2nd: 6299 GATES Ms D C Gunring Waiting Game
If you want to know what a fantastic muscled springer looks like, look no further than this bitch. Another bitch who did not look her age and is as sound as a pound on the move. A well proportioned, good shaped head with the kindest eye. She is a bitch that needs going over to be really appreciated, probably the best spring of rib of the day, short coupled, wonderful width of second thigh, lovely short hocks.

A lovely, elegant l/w bitch of quality, sweet, well shaped head, eye needs to darken, but she’s a baby! Super bone and lovely neat feet. Super neck and shoulder. So well balanced for her age. She moved ok, but the heat was affecting her, don’t blame her! Best Puppy.
2nd: 6294 EASTWOOD Ms D Roqfolly Miss Moneypenny
In absolutely pristine condition. A really sweet pup, I liked her shape and I think she has a lot of potential. Beautiful head, her eye needs to darken, but I’m sure it will. Well boned on good shaped feet. She moved very well on her side gait, but just needs to tighten up fore and aft.

Only one in this class but all quality. She wasn’t overly happy today which was a shame so she didn’t show off her many attributes. Beautiful l/w/t head, well balanced. Good width and depth to body, really promising.

1st: 6278 BROUGH, Ms C & WALKER Mr P Riselawroad Pink Pickle
Really liked this fabulous b/w bitch. She is all springer. I loved her wonderful head and dark eye, chiselling coming along nicely too. Super bone and lovely thick padded, well shaped feet. Beautifully angulated front and rear with no exaggeration, just needs maturity to finish the picture on the stand. Moved with real drive and soundly, just needs to slightly tighten up in the front when coming towards you.

1st: 6328 MITCHELL Ms A M Petranella Penny Lane
What a poppet this bitch is. I thought she was wonderful. She could lose a pound or two in the waist area but it didn’t distract from her being a really beautiful, standard bitch. She is coming up to full maturity and I think she should be in the frame for bigger honours soon. Loved her head and kind expression. Wonderful depth of chest and spring of rib. Lovely broad hindquarters and well muscled. Moved happily and soundly.
2nd: 6368 WOODBRIDGE Mrs C M Crackerjanne Call Me Madam
A really promising l/w youngster. Excellent shaped head, with a dark eye. Good length of neck onto well laid shoulders. Decent depth of chest for age, well ribbed and good height to length ratio. Her dark liver coat was beautifully presented. Excellent muscle tone which showed in her movement with a good length of stride.

Some lovely quality bitches in this big class.
1st: 6346 SMITH Mr R J Melverly Sophistique
What a lovely balanced, quality bitch this is. Well shaped head, good eye colour, super neck and shoulder, excellent straight front with her elbows set close to her body. Well boned with no coarseness on the loveliest of feet. Good depth of chest with a super spring of rib, just loved her rear and lovely short hocks. Sound driving movement keeping a super topline at all times. Really unlucky to meet my CC winner in the challenge today. RCC.
2nd: 6332 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D Peasblossom Aria
What a delightful little bitch and a real pleasure to go over. Sound as a pound in good, hard condition. Her dark liver coat was beautifully presented and she was handled to perfection. The sweetest of expressions with a kind dark eye. Super topline, good angles front and rear which showed in her driving movement.
3rd: 6288 CORBETT Mrs A E Trimere Touch Of Black

Oooh and she is! I fell slightly in love when I looked into the eye of this most beautiful of bitches. She surely has one of the best heads in the country. Beautifully shaped, chiselling around the eye is exquisite and her dark almond shaped eye is to die for. Classically made, just right for size. An excellent length of neck with that lovely slight arch to it that is so rare to find these days, good shoulders, straight well boned front, good depth of body, excellent weight to show off her spring of rib and a moderate bend of stifle with lovely short hocks. Handled to perfection to show her easy, free driving movement. Delighted to award her the CC and BOB.
2nd: 6289 CORBETT Mrs A E Trimere Tantrums And Tiaras
Very similar to 1. Another lovely kind, gentle expression on this l/w/t. Beautifully balanced, full of quality and similar remarks apply to her as the CC winner. I liked her very much.
