I would like to thank the officers and committee for inviting me to judge their March open show. I was made to feel most welcome and the hospitality was second to none. I would also like to thank my stewards who did a very efficient job on the day, the exhibitors for a quality entry and for accepting my decisions in a sporting manner and applauding every class. It made for a really pleasant atmosphere. Thank you all.

Class 1 – MPD (2)

1.     Todd’s Lynwater Storm Petrel 7 months golden. Appealing head and dark, tight eye. Moderate length of neck leading to well placed shoulders. Plenty of bone and firm, thickly padded feet. Short body. Nicely rounded quarters. Moved with typical cocker bustle. BPD

2.     McGowan’s Dovehill Black Batchelor 6 months black. Very raw baby, but starting to come together. A little apprehensive on the table but moved well once settled. Has plenty of time on his side.

Class 2 – PD (2)

1.     Smiths Craigdean Callimakokr 10 months blue. Lovely make and shape. Masculine head and gentle expression. Good reach of neck, deep chest and good spring of rib. Plenty of bone and substance. In lovely condition. Moved well ad true, but just lacked animation in the challenge for Best puppy dog.

2.     Woods Balgair Babylon 10 months orange. Presented a nice overall picture with many pleasing attributes. Unsettled both stacked and on the move which lost him the class.

2 – Siviters Trentshome Comedy Venture. Pretty blue baby with lots to like. Only just 6 months so gave lots away in age. Nice body and head developing nicely. Moved well once settled.

3 – Siviters Trentshome Comedy Star.

 

Junior (3)

1 – Wildings Jayzander Murphys Law. 15 months blue dog. Loved his masculine head and his dark eyes. Ample reach of neck and well laid back shoulder. Good depth of chest, straight front with good bone and tight feet. Liked his body and substance. Well rounded rear. In good hard condition. Well presented coat finished the picture. Moved with drive.

2 – Siviters Trentshome Comedy Venture

3 – Every’s Rayalidan Razzle Dazzle

 

Open (3)

A really lovely class which made my decision somewhat difficult!

1 – Marris Brays Sh Ch Helenwood Crystal Maze. Stunning blue bitch. Very honest type with nothing exaggerated. Feminine head with dark tight eye and low set ears. Good reach of neck. Short, compact body, nicely angulated front and rear. In good hard condition. Used her muscular quarters to drive her effortlessly around the ring. Presented in good coat. BOB. Pleased to hear she later went G1 and RBIS. Well done!

2 – Siviters Trentshome Sno Business JW. Beautiful black who I have previously admired but never had the chance of handling, and she certainly didn’t disappoint. Lovely head and expression. Good reach of neck. Short back. Well angulated quarters. Moved with drive although a little unsettled by the wind and flapping ring tape. Presented in gleaming condition. Unfortunate to meet winner. RBOB

3 – Wildings Jayzander Murphys Law. Winner of the previous two classes but unfortunate to meet two lovely bitches in such super condition. Gave way on maturity here but I am sure he has a bright future and will watch with interest!
