27 BVIS - Sh Ch Trimere Total Devotion To Dexbenel

MPB 3 (1)
1 Topliss' Beresford Northern Light - Very feminine, elegant puppy with a well shaped, pretty headpiece. Lovely neck into shoulders with a good topline; well ribbed back with well balanced hindquarters. Still a little unsettled on the move, nevertheless a very promising puppy.
2 Nicholsons' Gunring Dancer at Kingsheath - a strong bodied puppy with good ribbing and topline. Her head has yet to develop and she would benefit from a darker eye. I would prefer more angulation of the fore and hindquarters to balance the picture.

1 Jackson's Mompesson Royal Dancer - Stunning puppy bitch who has all the essentials to take her to the top. Very feminine headpiece, already exhibiting delicate work in the foreface. Clean neck into well placed shoulders. Excellent column of bone right down to the feet. Well ribbed back with a strong, compact loin. Excellent hindquarters with correct croup and tail set. Moving beautifully and in lovely coat, it was my pleasure to award her Best Puppy In Show.
2 Walkers Dexbenella Derethea - Well balanced puppy with a pretty head, exhibiting good strength of foreface. Good length of neck into shoulders which could be slightly better angled. Excellent column of bone into compact feet. Firm topline, compact loin and strong hindquarters. Moved soundly.

1 Jackson's Mompesson Mischief - Lovely young bitch, full of quality and so well balanced. Lovely head shape that has the makings of something special. Eye is yet to darken. Clean neck into well placed front assembly. Excellent legs and feet. Good depth of body with a compact loin and balanced hindquarters. Moved freely and soundly in good coat.
2 Corbets Trimere Total Eclipse - Well balanced young bitch who moved with great reach and drive. Pleasing headpiece, although the eye is a little round. Strong neck into shoulder with good legs and feet. Well ribbed back with a firm loin and moderate hindquarters. Very promising.

1 Smith's Melverly Sophistique - A quality bitch with a beautiful head and expression. Clean neck into a well shaped front assembly with excellent bone and feet. Strong body with very good ribbing and loin. Excellent hindquarters demonstrating plenty of drive as she moved, enthusiastically using her tail. Close, silky coat with good undercoat. Unfortunately, due to a mishap with her handler, she lost her confidence in the challenge for the CC. 
2 Topliss Beresford Don't Tempt Me - Lovely bodied bitch. Compact, strong with a very well knit frame. Pleasing head and expression with good brows. Good legs and feet. Would like a little more fill through the front. Well ribbed back with firm loin and wide, well let down quarters. Moved well.

GB 11 (1)
1 Topliss' Peasblossom Hope for Beresford - Substantial bitch, although a little long caste. Typical head with correctly shaped dark eye and good strength of muzzle. Clean neck into moderately angled shoulders, good bone and feet. Would prefer a firmer topline. Well angulated in the rear with good width of quarters. Moved very well.
2 Weymans' Donarden Sweet Sensation at Spuffing JW - Compact, balanced bitch with a quite a good head. Well ribbed back with a firm loin and well shaped hindquarters. Moved soundly. Preferred the eye shape and color on 1.

1 Corbetts Trimere Touch of Black - Lovely B / W bitch, elegant, quite compact and very shapely. Typical head with dark almond shaped eye. Good neck into shoulders. Super legs and feet. Well ribbed back with compact loin. Good width across the quarters which were moderately angled with well let down hocks. Covered the ground well on the move. 
2 Holmans' Artycreath Diamond Dee - L/W. More upstanding style of bitch, again very elegant and shapely. Not quite the reach in front of 1. Pretty headpiece with all the requirements, including a kind expression. Good legs and feet. Well ribbed back with strong topline and firm compact loin. Moved soundly.

These two bitches headed a class of some quality bitches and there was very little between them. Both combined femininity with strength and elegance. 
1 Cunliffes' Calvdale My Girl of Fallenleaf JW ShCM - Shapely bitch with a lovely headpiece, clean through the back skull with plenty of width and depth to the muzzle. Although she has excellent fluting and brow, I would like a slightly more almond shaped eye. Good reach of neck into well placed shoulders with an excellent column of bone and great feet. Fantastic ribbing with a short compact loin and wide, well muscled quarters. Could do with a little more in the second thigh, however, she was so balanced and free on the move I could not deny her the RCC.
2 Jacksons' Mompesson Gypsy Spice - Another gorgeous bitch with a beautiful head and expression. Elegant neck into well angled forequarters with super bone and feet. Well ribbed back with a compact loin supporting a firm topline. Hindquarters balanced the front to present a symmetrical outline. Today, unfortunately, her movement going away was erratic.

1 Smith Sh Ch Melverly Sublimity - and sublime she is! Full of quality, she has a beautiful shape. So well balanced with just the right amount of angulation. Gorgeous headpiece with a fairly broad skull, lovely work in the foreface with good width and depth to the muzzle. Dark eye of correct shape, however, I would prefer pigmented eye rims. Reachy neck with great bone and feet; good depth to her body with super ribbing and a compact loin. Firm topline with correct croup and tail set. In super coat and condition, she moved easily, with plenty of reach and drive. It gave me great pleasure to award her the CC and she went on to win Best In Show, just edging the dog out of the top spot. 
2 Corbetts Trimere Tantrums and Tiaras - A lighter framed bitch. Again, a lovely, feminine headpiece with a dark eye. Good reach of neck with very good boning and feet. Well ribbed back with a compact loin and a good topline. Could do with a little more depth to her body. Moderate hindquarters with a slightly lower set tail. Would have liked her to have been in firmer condition. Her superior breed type won her this placing today.

VB 10 (2)
1 Walkers Sh Ch Trimere Total Devotion to Dexbenella JW ShCM - Just a lovely bitch; so full of quality from her beautiful head, to the tip of her tail. Good length of neck, great ribbing and depth of body, strong, compact loin and well angled quarters to match her front. In beautiful coat and condition, she moved around the ring so easily. I know how hard it is to keep an older bitch in tip top condition and her owner is to be congratulated. She Is just starting to lose some musculature over the skull. I was delighted to award her Best Veteran in Show.
2 Corbetts Sh Ch Trimere Tigra - Another very easy mover with a lovely head and expression. Up on leg, she presented a stylish outline. Good length of neck into a well angled forequarter. Firm topline with a strong loin, well shaped hindquarters with well let down hocks. Preferred the depth of body, condition and finish of the first place getter.
3 Downwards Angil Queen of Diamons at Rubens
4 Taubmans Meonstoke Madonna
5 Young's Shipden Panama Hattie at Shelcasrie

President Special Open Stakes Bitch 12 (2)
1 Youngs Shelcasrie Lovers Leap - Strongly boned, upstanding bitch with a good length of neck into well angled forequarter. Pleasing head with correctly shaped eyes which could be darker. Good depth of body and well ribbed back with a strong topline, loin and balanced quarters. Moved soundly. 
2 Taubmans Peasblossom Geisha at Meonstone - Balanced bitch, moderately angled with moderate bone and quality coat. Good width of skull, nicely rounded. Would like a little more length to her muzzle and an almond shaped eye. Good length of neck, well ribbed back with short loin. Moved enthusiastically and soundly.
3 Williams & Toublics Cobhay Bright Fuchsia
4 Naylor's Bridies Bridget Jones
5 Barsley Pesblossom Charm at Foordslane

Brace
1 Williams & Toublic - This pair was so well matched in outline both standing and moving. Handled beautifully down and back as well as around the ring.
2 Gray - Not as well matched as the first pair and were not as easily managed on the move.
