Many thanks for the super entry at this well organised show, I appreciate it very much. A vote of thanks must go to the organising committee & special thanks to Anne Dauncey the hard working forward thinking secretary who left nothing to chance.
Sp Triers D (2,1a) 1 Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Magician, a black dog of nice size, enough bone & body, beautifully presented but did not make the most of himself on the move. MPD (1) 1 Rutherford’s Carisco Follow Your Dreams, 7½ months black of good breed type, balanced head, front OK ample rib could be a touch shorter coupled for me, decent hindquarters. PD (2) 1 BPD, Boyce’s Trakside Mr Goodbar, 11 months brindle dog of undoubted quality, full of breed type, very strong willed & not the easiest to handle but once settled he moved out well for & aft retaining a lovely outline in profile. Big body & rib, decent front, good bone, good coat texture. All in all a promising boy who will do well in the future; 2 McCracken’s Our Black Jack, this good coated black dog is slightly longer cast than the winner & does not have the angles front or back. Ample body, enough rib, topline OK, tailset OK on the move needs a touch more drive but was true out & back. JD (5,1) 1 Corney’s Of Stonegarth Shaken Not Stirred at Rilynson, 1 year Wheaten dog, not the biggest but well balanced, true breed type, enough body, good rib, legs & feet, he could have a touch more quality in head as it tends to be on the broad side. He moved with purpose & style & was well handled; 2 Petriccione’s Glengracie Victor, this brindle dog has a good topline but would prefer a better tailset, OK for bone, decent rib, for me he could be deeper & lower to ground. His coat was of good texture & he made the best of himself on the move; 3 Mahmoudi’s Glengracie Jetson. MD (1) 1 Khenkina’s Varendzhi Born To Be Gorgeous, this black dog has a good outline standing & was very well presented, balanced head, good dentition, decent neck & shoulder, he was low to ground, tailset could be better, on the move he was assertive & agile OK coming towards but close going away. Coat of super texture. ND (2) 1 Our Black Jack; 2 McGlennon’s Divadell Harvest Moon, this 18 month dog needs a lot more body & substance. At present he looks a touch fine & lacking in width, front construction could be better as elbows protrude. Needs more muscle & condition. He was happy & on the move he was OK coming & going but could have had more length of stride in profile. GD (2) 1 Eteo’s Glenmiar Sorcerer at Jancliff, 21 months brindle who is well off for body, good bone & substance, with a balanced head, strong muzzle. Clean over the neck & shoulder, could have a touch more rear angulation & at times was uncooperative on the move but did enough to win this class. Presented in good coat & condition; 2 Harrison-Brown’s Drefaldwyn King David, black boy who was not as slung as the winner & could be shorter in back, good coat texture, decent head, good dentition. He was a touch wide going away OK coming towards. PGD (6,2) 1 Tyler’s Divadell Room At The Top, a balanced dog who is too strong in head for me, could have more angulation in front, ample bone for size, good body & rib, topline OK. He made the best of himself on the move retaining his outline & moving with great purpose; 2 Coley’s Kingsview Just Samuel, this boy is a heartbreak, lovely to go over, quality head & eye, true front, good bone & rib, correct tailset. Coat of good texture but today he was unhappy with his surroundings & just did not cooperate on the move which pegged him back to second place. I hope he eventually settles as he would trouble the best; 3 Eteo’s Glenmiar Sorcerer at Jancliff. LD (5) 1 Chick’s Brueik All The Aces, this well presented dog of good type presents a good outline, I would prefer a touch more refinement in skull, good over the neck & shoulder, adequate bone. Coat of good texture, he moved true & retained a good outline at all times; 2 Meek’s Benartybrae Macarena at Benbetham, wheaten dog who is strong enough in head for me, well boned legs & feet, well off for body, decent front, could have more rear angulation, tailset OK. Could move with more drive from the rear; 3 Hills’ Rolanka Pass The Buck at Benartybrae. OD (9,1) 1 Luig’s Stalwart’s Game Of Thrones, this black dog was presented in first class order & moved out well with good length of stride in profile good out & back although could have a touch more width in front. Nice head & eye, good topline, strong well ribbed body, correct tailset & carriage. All in all this dog gave a good account of himself to win this class; 2 Blain & Tuttle’s Am Ch Kingsview Just Before Dark, this brindle dog is very well constructed & good to go over. For me he needed to carry much more coat to finish the picture, however his good construction was evident when he moved which gave him this 2 placement in a strong class; 3 Bichel-Schnock’s Multi Dk Ch Sir Darnley’s Windsor Wizard. BBE D (4) 1 Marriott & Kenny Marriott’s Rus Ch Millingford Kings Choice, this black boy proved to be my CC & BIS. Quality head which is masculine but clean & well balanced. Good over the neck & shoulder, true front, good bone, well ribbed strong body, coat of good texture, well set & carried tail. On the move he was very true coming & going & gave a good account of himself in profile retaining a super outline at all times; 2 Khenkina’s Only Perfect Varendgy, a wheaten who is quite well constructed he has a head of good length. Dark eye, not quite the front assembly of the winner maintained his topline & made the most of himself on the move, well bodied with a good deep rib & presented in super coat of good texture. Won the RCC; 3 Bichel-Schnock’s Ch Sir Darnleys Windsor Wizard. VD (4,3) 1 Greenwood’s Petmon Light Of My Life, almost 10 years old & a credit to his owners for keeping him in such first class condition. Of good size & retains a clean head. JUN HANDLING – 6-11 years (3,2) 1 Connor Chapman, this young man concentrated on his charge at all times, ensuring the correct picture was available for me whenever I glanced over, he move the dog at a good steady pace without being too fast. He was the BJH and showed great promise for the future. 12-16 (1) 1 Stuart Hoare, he tried very hard to get the best from his charge, very kind & patient towards the dog, just needs to practice more at presenting a good picture when standing.
Sp Triers B (3,1) 1 Greenwood’s Petmon Miss Tiggywinkle, another 10 year old in super condition & of the correct type, well bodied & great coat texture age is telling when asked to move today; 2 Weall’s Wringtonbell Ready To Rock, a black who is a touch longer cast than the winner & not quite her head quality, she however scored when asked to move as she kept her outline, presented in good coat. MPB (4) 1 Rutherford’s Carisco Cendal Crème, a young wheaten just over 8 months, she has good ribs & substance for her age , balanced head dark eye used her ears well, needs time as at the moment she runs up to her tail, great temperament; 2 Khenkina’s Gemma Stonehenge Vive La Vie, a promising black baby who needs time to develop all through, presented a good outline. Pleasing neck & shoulder & a well set tail; 3 Kirk Gellatly’s Whitwitch Fly By Night. PB (5) 1 Chapman’s Sianview Dizzee Delight, a 10 months old bitch of good breed type. She has a lovely front & carrying enough body for her age, deep rib & level topline muscular quarters, not the easiest to handle but her handler made a good job. BPB; 2 Beckton’s The Show Must Go On at Glengracie, a wheaten bitch of decent size & substance. She has a good front with enough bone deep rib & muscular quarters. Perhaps she could have made more of herself on the move; 3 Marriott & Kenny Marriott’s Pandora’s Box at Millingford. JB (7) 1 Becquet & Darby’s Minorlines Princess Royal Becscott, an attractive brindle with a lovely body & true front, balanced head, dark eye, ears could be neater, good over the neck & shoulder level topline & a well set tail. She moved true both ways; 2 Emmins’ Miss Catastrophe Du Moulin De Mac Gregor, a black bitch who is well balanced throughout, fair length of head dark eye, not quite the front construction of the winner or her topline. I feel she needs time & should mature well; 3 Carpenter’s Blackthorpe Bramble at Westerleigh. MB (2) 1 Schwarz’s Tredaly St Agnes, this young black bitch appeals for breed type, quality & substance. She is very well ribbed & maintains her topline on the move. Balanced head which is clean dark eye giving a good expression. I thought she would benefit with more bone for her size; 2 Hills’ Skircoat Semibreve at Tahgmor, a heavier brindle all through with much to like her for. She excels in body & substance but is not as short backed as the winner. Very happy temperament & gave of her best in this class. NB (4) 1 Lorentini’s Quinarius Fortis Arbor, a quality headed black which shows balance & cleanness. Well constructed front lovely rib & carrying a good body muscular hindquarters, well set tail, scored here on her showmanship; 2 Beckton’s The Show Must Go On at Glengracie; 3 Hill’s Skircoat Semibreve at Tahgmor. GB (3,2) 1 Lawrence’s Sweetgarret Highland Lass, a black bitch of good type, with a very good body, her front construction is pleasing & she has a good deep ribcage, on the move she did not fully co-operate with her handler & spoilt her topline & tailset as a consequence. PGB (4) 1 Chapman, Bradley & Herd’s Brueik Tickled Pink by Berrybreeze, this black has a balanced head dark eye & correct mouth, could be a touch neater in ear, well developed rib & carrying a good body used her tail well & maintained her outline on the move, presented in good order; 2 Mills’ Blackthorpe Lost In You, this black is shorter & more compact than the winner, balanced head, neat ear, correct width in front with well developed ribs. Tended to rise up in her topline & not quite as free on the move as the winner. LB (6,1) 1 Kenny Marriott, Marriott & Kirk Gellatly’s Millingford Fire Queen, this young black bitch headed a very good class, excellent type & quality, lovely bone & substance good size & balance, clean head neat ear pleasing neck & shoulder. She showed to advantage & moved soundly, unfortunately in the challenge she tended to lose her topline; 2 Rutherford’s Carisco My Leading Lady, another true to type black of quality, balanced head clean skull neat ear good over the neck & shoulder decent front lovely coat texture Showed steadily & provided good competition to the winner; 3 Carpenter’s Blackthorn Blowzabella at Westerleigh. OB (3,1) 1 Mrs Coley’s Ch Kingsview Just Freya, a 3 year old bitch of enviable type & quality. Nice to go over compact with substance & yet retaining quality, so very well presented & moved with purpose but in the challenge she was just pipped by the CC winner who had a touch more length of stride in profile. All in all a quality girl pleased to award her RCC; 2 Cialdella’s Ch Love Song for Quinarius Della Riva D’arno, another good quality black with a long clean head presented a good outline & showed herself to advantage. Good rib & depth. Pleasing topline.

Well set & carried tail. She came into her own on the move, lengthy stride & so sound, the longer she moved the better she was, using herself & displaying carriage & style. A pleasure to award her the CC & RBIS; 2 Schwarz’s Tredaly St Agnes.
