Judged by Mr A Allcock MBE
This was an interesting entry and one which presented a few surprises on the day. It is never easy to judge one’s own breed and to adjudicate the dogs of colleagues and friends; it takes courage, strength and integrity to focus on the assessment of the dog on the day, void of emotion, connections and historical record. All dogs were presented in good order and clearly there were no signs of exaggeration or breathing problems.
Class 1517 VD NO ENTRIES
Class 1518 MPD (1 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: OHERLIHY’s Axelwood Sakura, 8 months old and already a great little showman. In abundant coat which made him look larger than he actually is. Classical head and eye, adequate reach of neck, level back and high tail setting. Moved OK.
Class 1519 PD (1 Entries) Abs: 1
Class 1520 JD (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: FARMER’S Sangria Celebrity, Small and dainty as the standard requires. He comes into his own on the move being extremely accurate and has this distinguishing characteristic of moving with a proud aristocratic gait. Spirit level top line and head with such an enduring expression. Clearly there is a lot of maturing to do but a lovely specimen of the breed. RCC
2nd: BANKS’S Choya Kiosha. Another very promising youngster that I admired enormously and was very close up on 1. Beautiful shape and balance throughout with great reach of neck supporting an attractive head and eyes. Accurate mover but not quite as positive as winner. Held a level top line throughout and in super coat which was beautifully presented.
3rd: MC CLEOD’S Rossyn Hikaru At Dunline
Class 1521 PGD (2 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: PARRY’S Sidlyn Gone With The Wind To Gwynsias. Lovely size and produced a square profile. Sufficient bone and adequate substance. Cobby body and high tail setting. Comes into his own when moving; this being extremely accurate in all directions. Well presented and in excellent condition.
2nd: CURWOOD’S Nisyros Frank Chinatra Different type to winner being more substantial but having lots of pleasing virtues, particularly in head qualities. Neat finish to foreface and well placed eyes. Slightly longer in body and front not as secure as 1. Abundant coat and presented in fabulous order.
Class 1522 LD (7 Entries) Abs: 2
This was an excellent class of lovely dogs.
1st: BARTLETT’S Pebblecombe Jinja. R/W in glorious coat and condition. Excells in head qualities having such a lovely wide jaw upon which abundant cushioning is overlaid. Super dentition. Large round dark eyes with a most appealing expression. Cobby body, great lay of shoulder and lovely reach of neck held head so proudly on the move. Accurate up and down and really drove around the ring. Confident throughout and on this performance thoroughly deserved his (and his breeder’s) first CC & BOB
2nd: ROSE’S Fralee Namakiki At Rossyn. Very similar in size and shape to winner. An extremely accurate mover. Great cobby body, lovely front and super rear angulation. Just not quite the finish of 1 but very close up and considered for the RCC.
3rd: PEARCE & HANN’S Choya Kanji Na With Rakuchin
Class 1523 OD (3 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: BANKS’S Ch Homerbrent Kotaishi Of Choya JW. A very worthy Champion who is most impressive to examine on the table. Excellent body, great depth of chest and spring of rib. Beautifully balanced and adequately fulfils the requirement of being fine and dainty. Fabulous presentation. His movement is parallel and whilst he did enough to win this class today, just seemed to lack the enthusiasm and personality of the principle winners in the challenge.
2nd: CARTER-DAVIDSON’S Hysterical Samurai Sou At Sharlarna. Very different to the winner in type and has a lot to like. Loved his head qualities and expression, super reach of neck and tail setting. In great coat. When moving, was occasionally out of rhythm and top line was affected. This was probably due to the fact that he was moved far too fast and therefore lost composure. Notwithstanding this, it was a very close decision.
3rd: BARTLETT’S Vanistica Mahosukai Of Pebblecombe
Class 1524 VB (1 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: ROSE’S Rossyn Rimiko. Simply loved her soft enchanting expression. In great coat and condition and moved really well in all directions. Credit to the care and attention of her owner. BV
Class 1525 MPB NO ENTRIES
Class 1526 PB (4 Entries) Abs: 1
1st: WILLIS’S Jonsville Oriana Dainichi. Beautifully constructed puppy having elegance and attitude. Superbly shaped eyes giving the required expresstion, sufficient neck, nice lay of shoulder, level back and high tail setting. Elbows close in to super body. Straight front legs and correctly shaped feet. The texture of coat was fine and silky and simply flowed as she drove around the ring demonstrating her accurate and precise movement. Great attitude to life, she really impressed me and delighted she captured the attention of the Puppy Group judge. RCC, BPIB, PG1
2nd: PEARSON’S Elisamay Kimiko. Another lovely puppy and many of the same attributes apply. Not quite the confidence of winner but a lot to like. Beautifully presented coat and in super condition.
3rd: SPEIGHT’S Bonniroy Yatsuko
Class 1527 JB (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: BANKS’S Choya Katsumi. Headed an excellent class of quality young bitches and little separated them all. Excells in breed type and has a super shaped head with expressive eyes. She captured my attention on the stand portraying such a typical outline of the breed. Square throughout with a lovely tail setting and super neck.
2nd: FLYNN’S Linjato Amaya Very similar in type to winner being of similar breeding. Excelled in front movement. Typical expression having super eyes. In lovely coat and condition and really made my decision a difficult one. Just lost out on showmanship today which influenced the decision.
3rd: PARADISE’S Shardlow Knickerboka Glory
Class 1528 PGB (5 Entries) Abs: 1
1st: SPEIGHT’S Bonniroy Yasafii Superb body and really epitomises the requirement of having a cobby body. Adequate neck and level back. In good coat. Lovely size and shape throughout, straight front legs with feathered hare shaped feet to complete. Moved as soundly as a bell in all directions.
2nd: OATRIDGE’S Dalehouse Crystal Jade. Nicely constructed throughout and well balanced. Not the finish of coat as winner but moved steadily and in very good condition.
3rd: PARADISE’S Shardlow Knickerboka Glory
Class 1529 LB (2 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: OATRIDGE’S Dalehouse Crystal Tips. Most impressive to examine on the table. This ultra feminine bitch demonstrates the requirement of being fine and dainty but void of any weakness. Underneath this beautifully presented coat is a body with lovely spring of rib, short loin and strong rear angulation. Such a proud head carriage when moving which was exemplary today. Delighted to give another chin breeder and exhibit a very well deserved first CC
2nd: BARTLETT’S Simsalchin Lalibela Of Pebblecombe. This bitch has many virtues including a beautifully shaped head and round dark eyes with required expression. Super neck, level back and straight front legs and strong rear anglation to match. Just lacked animation in comparison to 1 but moved with the same accuracy in all directions.
Class 1530 OB (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: BROWN’S Yama Miss Dior At Rossvale. This lovely newly crowned champion is superb to go over. Excells in body width which has, in addition, a short strong loin. Strong rear, and super tail setting. Coat coming back. Lovely shaped head with fabulous eyes. On the initial go around she was obviously unhappy as she went around with her tail down, but then gained composure after the table examination and did enough on breed type and accuracy of movement to win this class. Unfortunately however, went to pieces in the challenge which was disappointing for both judge and handler.
2nd ROSE’S Rossyn Takara. Beautifully constructed throughout and a bitch that every kennel must have to continue producing dogs of the highest quality. Presented in good condition. Loved her cobby body, spring of rib and accuracy of movement.
3rd: SMITH’S Amronchi Niina With Wyndcatch
