14th September 2014

Judge: Mrs S Boyer

 I would like to thank all who entered under me and to my very compentent stewards who kept things running smoothly and aided me in finding the best section of the ring for the dogs to move - it was hard to assess the movement on some dogs as the ring was more like taking a trek through the mountains with it big dips and mounds and a large rut right through the middle which many dogs wanted to jump over. Overall I was pleased with my main winners and overall presentation was good but there were a few with badly stained creases and a couple who had sticky coats as if they had not been washed and some who were lacking body condition. I was pleased to see all 3 of my main winners then going on to be placed in 3 very strong toy groups.

Veteran Dog (2) 
1st: MCFARLANE Sleepyhollow All That Jazz At Glendyke this dog I have I judged at various ages through his showing career - this b/w boy who is now showing his age with his dentition which now has an overal affect the finish of his muzzle, still moves soundly and keeping a good topline on such an uneven ground, rather out of coat and condition today but princiably won today on his movement. 
2nd MATCHES Der Rosenkavalier Sleepyhollow s/w boy who is short and cobby - has nice a large dark eye and dark pigment he was being shown in good body and coat condition - for some reason he was not moving very positive on movement today and I got him to move a number of times but do not know if it was the ground which was ashame as he is a very nice dog.
Minor Puppy Dog (6-0) 
1st RHODES, Ms S & VINCENT Javalcy Bit Of A Razzle Dazzle - Best Puppy and Toy Puppy Group 2 - b/w boy with a lovely head and nice large eyes with just the right amount of white showing. Good jaw with well cushioned muzzle and nice dark pigment, good lenght of neck leading into nicely laid shoulders, carrying good body and lovely silky coat, moved soundly round the ring and keeping a level topline at all times, was pleased to see him perform even better in the main ring on a level ground.
2nd FLYNN Linjato Kiyoto another lovely b/w who has many similar points to my main winner - just requires more body and condition at this point
3rd ALLCOCK, Mr B S & LINDSAY Sleepyhollow Baroque 
Puppy Dog (7-2) 
1st: PEARCE, Ms T & HANN Holmchin Secret Affair With Rakuchin a nice puppy with good a superburb attitude. Has a large head with nice dark eye and the correct expression, has a good reach of neck, firm straight topline, if I had to be critical he could do with being a bit shorter in back.

2nd ALLCOCK Sleepyhollow Mozart a mature dog for age, has a masculine head with good cushioning with a nice size eye with just the right amount of white showing, good reach of neck and a nice short body with good topline and good tailset, in excellent coat but he seemed a little unsettled which affected hs movement today so had to pay the price.

He is short and cobby and in good coat and moved well round the ring - today he just lacked the finishing touch of a bit more weight on his waist to compete for the top honours but I will continue to watch his progress.

2nd: TONG Dalehouse Elements Of Elgar Jakconas - this boy I saw as a puppy and he did not disappoint on handling, he has a large head with large darks eyes and well cushioned muzzle. He is well constructed and moved soundly - he lost out to number one as he is slightly larger in size

2nd ALLCOCK& HAMPTON Bonniroy Yasebai Sleepyhollow - this fella has a good head with nice eye and well filled muzzle, he is short and compact and has a level topline with tight tailset - unfortunately it was difficult to assess his movement but what I could see he is sound but he was insisting on playing his handler up so had to pay the price.
