DCC & RBIS Sh Ch Calvdale Softly Softly RDCC Sh Ch Mompesson Royal Destiny

Minor Puppy Dog (6, 2 abs)

1st Downward's REUBENS SILENT REFLECTION
Balanced and correctly sized with good bone and neat feet. Nice head and expression but eyes need to darken. Good topline, super coat condition and moved well for one so young.
2nd Notley's CELGARN CHOCOLATE STARFISH
Rather raw and not as coordinated as the winner but still a confident liver/tan/white male of means in good condition.
3rd Hobb's WHITEBROOK LORD OF THE RINGS
Res Miller's FEORLIG NATURAL BORN WINNER

Puppy Dog (4, 0 abs)

1st Downward's REUBENS SILENT REFLECTION
2nd  Hobart's MOLAHATCHIE LONE RANGER
Strong headed, light-eyed masculine dog with plenty of bone right down to his tight feet. Good topline with a rather high set tail, coat in excellent condition and a nice steady mover, as yet not as firm in front as the 1st.
3rd Wright's KINGSHEATH BATISTA
Res Miller's FEORLIG NATURAL BORN WINNER

Junior Dog (7, 0 abs)

1st Palmer's ROANDEW DEZ DIDDIT JW
Classic springer outline with length of neck, decent shoulders, straight front and ok feet. Superb spring of rib and depth of brisket for one so young. Good topline, correct tail set and well turned quarters, moved with animated soundness. Rather downfaced which meant fluting wasn't distinct, which was not helped by eyes which could be darker.
2nd Jackson's MOMPESSON NEWSFLASH
Another one with eyes I would like darker, but a nicely balanced head with expression. Just at a 'teenage' stage where his body needs to come on a bit to match his masculine head. Good neck, shoulders and front which was spoilt by sloppy feet. Firm topline and good quarters, moved well.
3rd Corbett's TRIMERE TRADEMARK
Res Pattenden's KETSBY KRUSADER AT BERINA
VHC Niven's CALVDALE ABOVE SUSPICION

Yearling Dog (5, 1 abs)

1st Thomas' CALVDALE STAND ACCUSED
The spring in springer, super temperament and real extrovert. Good body and moving with drive, one of the few with really good forward reach, Well! that is when we had four feet on the floor. Would have liked a better skull shape and ears not as far back.
2nd Willey's SPEETON WIZARD OF OZ
Nice type with good body but not happy today, probably because of the eye drops for his eye test which was making him squint. This unfortunately affected his expression, but a dog I would like to see again on a good day.
3rd Rose's BENIRA ALWAYS AND FOREVER
Res Taubman's MEONSTOKE MAKE ME SMILE

Maiden Dog (3, 1 abs)

1st Wright's KINGSHEATH BATISTA
A black and white who gained 3rd in puppy. Nice head and good body in beautiful condition just spoilt by a stuffy neck caused by straight shoulders.
2nd Miller's FEORLIG NATURAL BORN WINNER
Very nice type with a lovely head and expression. Good body but today throwing a hind leg really badly to the extent that I couldn't assess movement.

Novice Dog (3, 1abs)

1st Hobart's MOLAHATCHIE LONE RANGER
2nd Pattenden's KETSBY KRUSADER AT BERINA
Reserve in a strong junior class, he had a super body and coat with steady movement. Would like a stronger, firmer front and at the moment his head is too strong for his body, which may alter as he gets passed the teenage stage.

Graduate Dog (5, 2 abs)

1st Read's BRAILEA BETTER BELIEVE IT
Top size flashy masculine dog with a strong head and one of the few with a dark eye. Good weatherproof coat with a shine, moved steadily and well.
2nd Pattenden's KETSBY KRUSADER AT BERINA
3rd Griffiths' CRACKERJANNE CELLO

Post Graduate Dog (9, 3 abs)

1st Smith's MELVERLY FIRST GOLD
Good head and expression and an all over sound, typey, typical representative of the breed just needing time to finish.
2nd Reynold's CLENTONIAN MASTERPIECE
Balanced body in excellent condition with sound movement. Not as good in head and expression as the winner.
3rd Beaton's BEECRAIGS BEDEVILLED AT SUMMERSTONE JW
Res Willey's SPEETON WIZARD OF THE MOOR
VHC Read's BRAILEA BETTER BELIEVE IT

Limit Dog (12, 2 abs)

1st Savell's PETRANELLA PERFICK JW
Pushing hard for top honours which cannot be far away. Good head with correct size, shape and colour of eyes. Right size with good bone and 'doggy' without being overdone. Nice neck, decent shoulders and good spring of rib followed by balanced quarters with a well-set tail. Moved steadily and well.
2nd Chandlers' CALL OFF THE SEARCH JW
Beautiful head with dark eye and good length of neck. Correct front and well turned quarters he was perfect in profile, but lacking the substance and rib of the winner.
3rd Gates' GUNRING GAMES UP
Res Millers' FEORLIG CLASSIC GOLD JW
VHC Sweeting's TRIMERE TRYED AND TESTED

Open Dog (7, 0 abs)

1st Calvert's SH CH CALVDALE SOFTLY SOFTLY JW
DCC. Strong, compact, masculine dog who was shown and moved to the very best of his ability. Shoulders and strong quarters not overdone for his body length, which otherwise whould have caused him to overreach.
2nd Jacksons' SH CH MOMPESSON ROYAL DESTINY
RDCC. Very hard decision and we are being hypocritical to say the dividing factor was that he was rather proud of his tail today.
3rd Glendinning's SWED CH BAKA TINKERBELL ATLAS-BELL (IMP)
Res Mitchell's HEUYLN FLAMBEAU
VHC Hales' SH CH TRIMERE TRADING PLACES WITH SHELEDAMS

Veteran Dog (12, 2 abs)

1st Harris' FEORLIG MIXED SPICE
A nine year old who didn't look or feel it. In beautiful condition and of correct type and size he was shown and presented well.
2nd Pattenden's SH CH BOSOL STAR KING OF BERINA
Another quality dog in beautiful condition. Still has lovely construction but his ten years is just beginning to show.
3rd Millers' LARBREK HEARTBREAKER AT FEORLIG JW
Res Smith's SH CH GUNDRIFS FINAL ROUND
VHC Guest's LARBREK DARK 'N' DELICIOUS

President Special Open Dog (5, 1 abs)

1st Grant's CANOUAN VIKING FLAGSHIP
Black and white with a lovely head and eye, nice fore and aft just a little long in the middle. Moved soundly and well but tending to roach somewhat to compensate for length of loin.
