Sex – Bitches 

Minor Puppy Bitch                                           Entries 2           ABS (Nil)

1st         Bourton’s VERANO VIVACIOUS.  6-month-old Fawn, although a baby, was well built with everything tightly placed. Lovely head with sweet expression, strong hindquarters and very collected on the move for one so young.

2nd        Cranfield’s ZEFATHER’S RUMOUR HAS IT. 8-month-old Fawn. Another lovely young lady but a little long in loin and not carrying the body of 1st but still a lot to like, was not so collected on the move.

1st          Cranfield’s ZEFATHER’S TURNING TABLES. Another 8-month-old Fawn. Sweet expression, litter sister to 2nd in MPB, with similar outline but would have liked a little more weight, good hindquarters. Moved soundly and did well to win this class

2nd        Page’s NOVAVIDA MIST OVER PENDLE. 10-month-old Fawn. Lovely head and expression, good hindquarters. Lovely tight feet, unfortunately out of coat which spoilt outline. Moved soundly

3rd        Morgan Evans VANMORE MAGIE SMALL. Just coming up to 12-months-old, unfortunately also way out of coat, beautiful head planes, all these could easily change places anytime.


Junior Bitch                                                      Entries 5           ABS (2)

1st         Teese T.M & Teese R. NIKAMI LEAP OF FAITH FOR TEESEEDANE. A 15-month-old Fawn, one to die for. Completely well built for one so young with a lovely feminine head giving impression of being so well built. Strong hindquarters which showed as her move went soundly and was full of drive, could not take my eyes of this exhibit. I’m sure will receive Top Honours at some time.

2nd        Chappell’s SELMALDA OH LORI. 16-month-old rich Fawn. Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said about this young lady. Which I believe is about to be confirmed as having received Top Honours, so well deserved.

3rd        Creamer handling for H.Collect. FOALDOWN A REAL DIAMOND. 16-month-old Fawn, unfortunately, uncomfortable on day which spoilt her movement but excellent shape & reminds me of the shape of her father whom I awarded his 1st ticket a few years ago

1st         Morgan’s AXEFORD GEORGE GIRL OF RIMOR. 3-year-old substantial Fawn, with lovely outline, good shoulder placement and correct top line. Exhibitor need to stand away from his bitch to express her super front and top line. Correct Hindquarters, moved so well, we seriously considered for Top awards

2nd        Bliss CALCHAS YODELLA OVER STAGBATCH. Another Classic example of a well built harlequin, excelled in front and rear, would have liked a little more drive on move.

3rd        Hayter’s TAMZDANE PRETZEL PALOOZA AT BELLOUSTE. 3-year-old black, nice short coupling with strong front & rear Hindquarters. A hard class to complete in.

1st         Chappell’s SELMALDA LIZA JANE. 3-year-old Rich Fawn, Nice outline & quality bitch. Moved well but a little too much drop of lip for me. Did not feel she was happy on the move.

2nd        Cranfield’s CH. ZEFATHER’S SWEET CHILD OMINE BJWNL’19 JW. Good outline, another quality bitch, could easily change places on another day and probably have.

Puppy Dog                                                        Entries 2           ABS (Nil)

1st         Smith’s ZEFATHER’S SKYFALL. Critique as previous class  

2nd        Ryan’s KEIRKANE’S QUEST FOR SUCCESS. 12-month-old Fawn, lighter build than 1st, a little long in loin but good lay of shoulder, long reach of neck which in profile puts outline a little out of balance. Needs to strengthen behind.

Junior Dog                                                        Entries 3           ABS (1)

1st         Chappell’s SELMALDA JEALOUS GUY (Ai). 16-month-old brindle that caught my eye with excellent make of shape. Nice head planes, good reach of neck, good lay of shoulder, strong hindquarters. Moved with drive & spring, certainly one to watch in the future.

2nd        Abbot’s NIKAMI LEAP OF ROMANCE. 15-month-old rich coloured fawn with excellent outline. Good lay of shoulder, nice top line, strong hindquarters, strong head leading into nice reach of neck. Dark eyes, moved well, was unlucky to meet 1st but again could easily change places and another that should have a bright future ahead. Pushed hard in challenge.

Special Open Mantle Dog                                 Entries 1           ABS (Nil)

1st         Burton’s RAVENDANE DEAL ME IN WITH ELBAREVOL. 5-year-old well marked mantle in excellent condition. Well bodied, everything in proportion. Head planes showing a masculine head, a little loose in flews. Although stood alone was worthy of his place.

Open Dog                                                         Entries 5           ABS (1)

1st         Morgan Evan’s VANMORE NOSEY PARKER AT CASTLEON. 4-year-old well built fawn. Lovely outline, good shoulder placement, strong well angulated hindquarters. This was a strong contender for Dog Top Honours, but I felt was carrying a little too much body which just did him no favours but a lot to like. Moved well.     

2nd        Chappell’s SELMALDA RICOCHET (Ai). 3-year-old rich red fawn. Another with plenty to like but was a little long in the loin. Great reach of neck, good shoulder placement. A strong second.

3rd        Searle’s DROOLAKISS MIDAS MURRAYVHAYLE. 4-year-old brindle, superb front construction, full of bone, nice top line. Unfortunately, exhibitor struggled to move this big boy, and this let him down on move which was a pity.

Thank you to all the exhibitors for their kind entries. Thankfully no classes were missed during the back to back with Bath General Championship Show, even with a few problems along the way.



This exhibit made me incredibly happy with no hesitation to award top honours.  I believe this was her 2nd ticket and sincerely hope 3rd not long in being awarded.




A beautiful exhibit who pushed ticket winner hard.




Fell in love with this super Brindle Boy, although young, has everything going for him.  Delighted to be told after judging that this was his 3rd CC. Also went on to win 2nd in Working Group for Bath’s Dane Judge.  Congratulations.



Top quality fawn but no more donuts please, cost you dearly 

Best Puppy in Breed



Wishing you every success in future

Thank you once again, I so enjoyed myself.
