PD (3) 1 Farmer’s Sangria War Lord, I loved this little dog’s type, very promising puppy of fabulous quality. Yes, he still needs to develop in body & coat, but that will come. Super head & expression, good cushioning, lovely eye with white showing in the corners. Nice length of neck, square body with level back. He moved with confidence & had a lively friendly disposition. BP; 2 George’s Sharlarna The Tempest, this lovely dog was more mature than 1, he was in better coat than 1 & was developed more in body. He still needs to get to grips with his walking. A touch more confidence & he should do well. Very nice head with all the essentials. Sound front & rear. Lovely silky coat which was well presented; 3 Vincent’s Yama Teddy Edward. JD (2,1a) 1 Bartlett’s Jonsville Secret Spy on Pebblecombe, this young dog had a nice head & eye, good open nostrils & plenty of cushioning. He had a cobby body with good plume carried curled over the back. Coat was a nice texture & was well presented. Moved a little narrow in front & in rear. JD (0). PGD (5,1) 1 Doran’s Shardlow Mikado, loved this little dog’s size, shape & type. Had a wonderful head with large dark eyes, good nose placement & wide muzzle. Nice elegant neck & cobby body with good ribs. He had fine bone but without being weedy. His coat was well marked, & nicely presented. Moved very well; 2 Vincent’s Yama Jimmy Choo, this dog was a little heavier in bone than 1. Quality masculine head with rounded skull, good ear placement & nice facial features. Sound steady mover. Shown in fabulous coat & condition; 3 Quinn’s Mattadam Samurai at Sharlarna. OD (11,1) 1 Allcock’s Ch Sleepyhollow Robson, this was an exciting class to judge. 1, today I could find nothing to beat the current top dog in the breed. He was fabulous to go over on the table, he stood like a statue. Gorgeous head with that desired oriental expression. Correct broad skull which was rounded in front, big healthy open nostrils, large expressive eyes. He has a lovely neck & carried his head so proudly at all times. Loved his shoulders & front, he had fine bone but it was strong & slender. Level back with huge plumed tail that was closely curved over the back at all times. I liked his rear, he had good muscletone, well angulated with good turn of stifle. He moved around the ring maintaining his shape & topline, he carried himself so stylish & with good reach in front. His coat was presented to absolute perfection, his coat was almost cold to touch it was that soft & silky. He looked beautiful standing attentive to his handler at all times. I was proud to award him BD, BOB, even more prouder he won the Toy Group & over the moon when he was awarded RBIS. Still a relatively young dog, I feel this dog is really coming into himself only just now, I predict he has still got a lot of winning to do; 2 Farmer’s Sangria Lord Of The Dance, very different to 1, but still a first class quality dog. He appeared a little shorter in back than 1. He was more a ‘pretty boy’ compared to 1. I loved his neck & proud head carriage. He was shown in lovely condition & moved true coming & going. I preferred the head & expression on 1. Not in as good as coat as 1. Well handled & schooled. One that will gain his title. RBD; 3 Davidson’s Ch Hysterical Samurai Sou at Sharlarna.
PB (6,3) 1 Smith’s Sidlyn Dancing In The Wind, very attractive puppy who was showing lovely, full of animation. Pretty head & nice oriental expression. She was soundly made, body perhaps a touch long at this stage. Presented in first class condition. Well handled; 2 Farmer’s Sangria Faberg’e, her head wasn’t as attractive & pretty as 1, probably due to the markings. Another who was nicely made, shorter body than 1. She moved very well once she got into her stride. Coat was beautifully presented; 3 Rose’s Fluffy Fantasy Eri at Rossyn. JB (3,2) 1 Davidson’s Hin Satori Evita Karmensita at Sharlarna, this little sable was an absolute stunner, so pretty & feminine. Lovely oriental expression, large expressive eyes, good cushioning & correct skull. She had good sound shoulders & front, typical hare foot. Level topline, & high set tail. She moved so nicely around the ring with correct front action, she was full of herself, so stylish & confident. Definitely of CC quality, one that should be made up. Would love to see her in full coat. Today she left her party frock at home, but she has certainly nothing to hide. BB. PGB (7,1) 1 Davidson’s Sharlarna Betty Boo, another one from this kennel that I have admired. Again such an attractive head, quality stamped all through her. She was finely made but with some good substance. She excelled on the move, completely out moving her opponents today. Again like her kennelmate, she forgot to put her Sunday best on, lacked some coat & furnishings. Quality bitch. RBB; 2 Vincent’s Yama Aurora, this pretty girl was another with a gorgeous head & expression. She was in better coat than 1, although her body was longer than 1. She moved really well with that high front action, sound rear & tail carried correctly at all times. Presented well; 3 Buswell’s Pebblecombe Riita for Ancilla. OB (3) 1 Pearce & Hann’s Stepheter Wanna Shout for Rakuchin, a veteran bitch who could still show the youngsters how to do it. So soundly made, fabulous body condition. She had a decent head with large expressive eyes, good nose placement & plenty of cushioning. She had sound front & rear, correct hare feet. Well feathered tail carried over the back at all times. Shown in full bloom, beautifully presented & handled; 2 Bartlett’s Simsalachin Piccola Bella Luna Pebblecombe, a bitch that caused me a bit of a headache. She was spot on for breed type, full of star quality on the table, lovely to go over. Beautifully marked coat, shown in fabulous condition. However she insisted on putting her tail down which was a great shame. A bitch that could have gone much further today if she had more showmanship.
