Cool coats galore at KelsoBORDER UNION championship show, held in Kelso on the Scottish Borders, welcomed us all over both days to warm sunshine. Many, including myself, were gifted with sunburnt faces, arms and legs which I’m sure will be here to stay for a number of days.

Kelso is such a beautiful and thriving market town in the heart of the Borders. Many exhibitors who were caravanning were seen in the town centre on the lead-up to the show, after heading straight up from Malvern the previous weekend.

For people who may not have made the trip up, nor gone to explore the town previously, Sir Walter Scott thought Kelso was ‘the most beautiful, if not the most romantic town in Scotland’. Surely a good reason to make a weekend of it and head to the show for a few days, wandering the cobbled streets and seeing the Victorian and Georgian buildings.

The show layout and rings were, in my opinion, some of the nicest we get on the UK show scene, with most rings having enough space for the breeds and entries. Nothing was ever too far away, so trade stands saw a constant stream of both exhibitors and public.

It was sad to see that some public were bringing dogs with them who clearly should have been kept out of the sun. However, the large number of people who came to see what dog shows are about was encouraging.

The first day was extremely warm, and saw the first half of the total of 5,675 dogs making 6,444 entries. The dogs seemed to cope well with the heat. People were setting up out in the sun and most, if not all, had set up shade for their dogs, and cool coats could be seen in the hundreds. Water taps were dotted around the showground which was extremely helpful.

The ice cream van seemed to be doing a good trade, although most sales were eaten rather quickly for fear of the ice cream melting too fast – which on most occasions it did.

Groups started nice and early and were finished at a reasonable time to allow people to head home early, or to enjoy the nice weather on the caravan site. Puppy groups were pre-judged and everything ran extremely efficiently, with bests of breeds not having to stand waiting for too long before heading into the group ring. During the evening, the caravanners were given a party in the main building, which I heard was well attended.

The second day, having four groups on, went on a little longer. The sun was still shining and again cool coats were seen in large numbers. Groups were run efficiently, and best in show finished around 7pm, when fortunately, the weather had cooled down. I think most of the public chose to visit this day so the showground was extremely busy.

Over the two days, four breed club shows were held: the Weimaraner Club of Scotland open show on Saturday, and Sunday the Dalmatian Club of Scotland championship show, the Scottish Great Dane Club open show, and the Scottish Miniature Pinscher Club limited show.

Colin Reed made it another best in show win for the Crufts RBIS winner, Ch Minarets Best Kept Secret, owned and handled by Melanie Harwood. This Miniature Poodle is certainly having a good year!

Reserve went to the Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen Ch Soletrader Magic Mike, a son of Crufts 2013 BIS winner Ch Peek A Boo, owned by Sara Robertson and Wendy Doherty, and handled as always by Sara.

Finally, a thank you and well done to the hard-working committee who put on a very well run show. The sun was out, no major dramas that I was aware of, and everything ran smoothly. Now to Blackpool where I’m sure most people will have headed to on Monday.

My final thanks to all committee & helpers for their excellent hospitality.

BIS was Ch Minarets Best Kept Secret, Miniature Poodle, here was a mature Poodle of the first order, demanding attention on entering the ring.

G1 was Ch Soletrader Magic Mike, PBGV, I thought this chap had it all today. I loved his head, his expression with a dark eye just took my attention. Satisfying to go over, his conformation is excellent combined with substance as a hunting hound should be. He moved around the ring with super petit action. In the final line-up he just shone. Delighted he went on to RBIS, congratulations.

PG2 was Molesend Secret, quality Beagle of lovely quality with well balanced head. Mature body with good ribbing, nicely boned down to ground, very sound mover to & fro.

Toy group

My thanks go to Border Union secretary, Brian Stevenson & the committee for giving me the opportunity to judge my first toy group. It was indeed an honour to judge such a strong group of quality dogs. I shortlisted eight for further consideration, the Bichon, Cavalier, L/c Chihuahua, Chinese Crested, King Charles, Lowchen, Pomeranian & Pug.

G1 was Go My Way Jp’s Black Cherry, L/c Chihuahua, an eyecatching, tri bitch who was so alert, spirited & swift moving with a brisk forceful action. Full of breed type from her well rounded, apple dome head, large, round eyes to her well laid shoulders, level topline & well sprung ribcage. She had good muscletone, & strong driving movement with a perfectly carried tail. Such a show girl she simply demanded my full attention. Congratulations on winning her fourth CC, BOB & G1 today.

G2 was Craigowl Out Of Reach, Cavalier, blen dog who simply oozes breed type. He has an almost flat skull, large, dark eyes that give the melting, gentle expression this breed is so well known for, correct length of muzzle & excellent dentition. He has a slightly arched neck leading into well laid shoulders, level topline & perfect tailset & carriage. His long, silky, well marked coat was in gleaming condition & his strong, muscular hindquarters had well turned stifles & this allowed him to move around the ring with such drive from behind. Congratulations on gaining his third CC & BOB today.

G3 was Pamplona The Real McCoy, Bichon, an immaculately presented & well balanced dog. I loved the type, quality & balance of this bichon. His skull was slightly rounded, & nose was large, round & black. He certainly has dark, round eyes, with black eyes rims surrounded by dark haloes. His neck was fairly long & arched, carried high & proudly. He had a deep brisket & well sprung ribs. His movement was a joy to watch.

G4 was Ch Baldragon She Demands, King Charles, a simply stunning bitch to watch on the move as she powered around the large ring. A mature bitch, full of quality with a distinctive dome, gorgeous expression, low set, long well feathered ears & correct nose placement. Her proud head carriage with arched neck leading into well laid shoulders, level topline & well bent stifles gave a wonderful picture of her in profile. Such a true toy spaniel she is cobby in body, with a wide chest & excellent ribcage. Today she won her 30th CC.



Toy puppy group

PG1 was Lireva’s Tickle Her Fancy, Pomeranian, outstanding, compact short coupled & sound little dog. A real extrovert on the move. Foxy head with black nose, slightly oval eyes. Small ears carried perfectly erect. Short in the back with a high set tail carried flat over the back. Her coat was the correct harsh texture & presentation second to none. I was told she had also won the RCC on the day. Congratulations.

PG2 was Cotonkiss Moondance to Cotonden, Coton de Tulear, a small, smart moving dog with a slight rise over the loin. Dark, round eyes full of expression. Shoulders well laid back, excellent front with well muscled hindquarters. Coat of the correct texture. Moved very well.

PG3 was Danton Damned If I Do, Min Pin, well balanced, compact dog with good movement. Attractive head with erect ears set high on head. Square in body shape with well sprung ribs & moderate tuck up.

PG4 was Lafford Hero, Bolognese, small, square dog in outline. He has a wide, flat skull, large round dark eyes & well pigmented rims. He had well sprung ribs, a level back & tight elbows. Moved out well. His coat was beautifully presented.



Gundog group

The quality of both the group & the puppy group was of a very high standard & thanks to breed judges for this opportunity to have so many good exhibits to assess & choose from, unfortunately it meant several very good quality exhibits had to miss out on the cut or a place. At first glance some stood out more than others & interestingly, after closer inspection how appreciations can change. It was a fabulous sunny day & the heat did play a part on some exhibits performance & some decisions were not easy.

For a closer look I decided on the GSP, Magregor Shneeball; GWP, Kimmax Kurious George; Gordon Setter, Sh Ch Lourdace Fulcrum; Vizsla, Pitswarren Zizi Jeanmaire; Irish R/W Setter, Sh Ch Alanea Summer Cottage; F/c Retriever, Sh Ch/Sw/Norw Ch Castlerock Simply Magic; Labrador, Warringah’s Gurley; Cocker, Bartonholm Bellissima; English Springer; Sh Ch/Aus Sup Ch Sandicam The Look Of Love; Welsh Springer, Chanangel Sticky Wicket; Clumber, Sh Ch/Ir Sh Ch Richley Ready To Rock with Antonine; & after serious thought:

G1 was Sh Ch Alanea Summer Cottage, Irish R/W Setter, feminine well proportioned head with good stop, dark eye of good shape, well placed ears, long muscular neck, strong body but is so balanced & not overdone, liked hear depth, length to height ratio, feet & overall quality, athletic & covered ground with free action & drive. Holds correct topline & good tail carriage. Presented in first class pearly white & red coat & she did not stop giving her best until the final decision was made.

G2 was Bartonholm Bellissima, Cocker, lovely head shape & expression, square compact & with well sprung rib, good length neck in well assembled front, quality bone & also stands on very good feet, well developed rear which she used to drive over the ground loved her energetic busy ring presence, presented in first class condition, of good size, very ‘Cockery’ in type & nice to hear she gained her title on the day.

G3 was Sh Ch/Aus Sup Ch Sandicam The Look Of Love, English Springer, masculine head, good eye & expression but for complete balance prefer a tiny bit more refinement in foreface, has well set ears, very good length of neck, strong, compact body with good depth & spring of rib, quality bone & excellent feet, well angled & developed rear, an extrovert who is free moving & holds a balanced outline going round, lovely breed type & presented in first class coat & condition, true action fore & aft & to ‘nit pick’ prefer his outline when taken just a touch slower, but, another with many breed qualities to appreciate.

G4 was Magregor Shneeball, GSP, clean cut head, with good eye & expression, broad ears well set of good size, muscular neck, good bone & feet, short backed, good depth & not too wide, strong loin, & well angled rear, free striding with firm topline, well muscled & presented in good short coat & very good body condition.



Gundog puppy group

Many quality youngsters at different stages & for further consideration I chose: English Setter, Bushbane Celtic Prayer; GWP, Bareve Boschkloof; Vizsla, Magnus Fortuna Pitswarren; W/h Vizsla, Zoldmali Szeles Morganna; Irish Setter, Gwendariff Come Fly With Me; Pointer, Medogold Whirly Bird; Labrador, Foxrush Time To Shine; Am Cocker, Afterglow Life Of Brian; & Weimaraner, Sharnphilly Ruby Aura.

PG1 was Afterglow Life Of Brian, Am Cocker, super head & eye shape, well set ears, good neck & well sprung rib, well angled rear, compact with correct topline, presented in lovely coat & condition, moved with free action, good front reach & super ring presence. A balanced & most promising young lady.

PG2 was Gwendariff Come Fly With Me, Irish Setter, feminine balanced young lady, racy, lovely bone & feet, liked her head proportions & expression, standing holds a balanced shape & correct topline, & she holds the same shape on the move, nothing exaggerated about her & presented in first class coat & condition, very close to winner & may change places on another day.

PG3 was Sharnphilly Ruby Aura, Weimaraner, medium sized with good bone feet & overall body shape, very good colour, liked her length to height & that her length is in her rib, strong loin. Feminine head of moderate length, good ears, moved free & holds a good outline, presented in first class condition & should also have a really bright future.

PG4 was Zoldmali Szeles Morganna, W/h Vizsla, well proportioned head with moderately broad skull & good muzzle, good eye, balanced body shape, liked his size & quality bone, deep with strong chest, well sprung ribs of good length, well developed rear, & presented in very good coat & condition, moved with free ground covering gait when handler strode out & got him at the right pace.



Pastoral group

My thanks to the committee & the officials of Border Union for their outstanding hospitality & for the honour of being invited to judge the group at this delightful show. The setting, the camaraderie & the glorious sunshine combined to produce the very best that summer championship shows can offer.

Congratulations to all concerned. I shortlisted seven for further consideration, Australian Cattle Dog, Border Collie, Briard, GSD, Pyrenean, Samoyed & Pem Corgi.

G1 was Ch Pemcader Thunderball, Pem Corgi, superb dog, full of type & quality, super head, well placed alert ears giving a stunning expression, moved with drive & handled with self-effacing style.

G2 was Locheil Return To Oz, Border Collie, one of my favourite show dogs, I have awarded him CC & BOB recently, & BP when a youngster, I love his type, quality & balance. Presented in beautiful coat & condition, moves with minimal lift & great precision, a truly stylish dog.

G3 was Ch Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, another of my favourites. He took G1 under me last time I judged this group. Beautiful masculine head, powerful unexaggerated body, moves with great fluency for such a big dog, beautifully handled to show his many qualities at their best.

G4 was Right One For Mezen And Us Santaviga, charming Samoyed bitch, super head, perfectly placed ears & lovely smile, balanced well conformed body in dazzling ice white jacket, moved with great precision.



Pastoral puppy group

I have seen stronger puppy groups. Possibly the fact that many breeds did not have CCs on offer might have had a bearing. I was very pleased with the quality of the breeds shortlisted, however, which were: Australian Cattle Dog, Bearded Collie, Tervueren, Border Collie, Samoyed & Pem Corgi.

PG1 was Debbeacol Rhythm Is A Dancer, outstanding Bearded Collie puppy, balanced head with delightful expression, strong neck, excellent height to length ratio, beautifully presented in lovely coat & condition, moved with fluency, precision & drive.

PG2 was Taronakits It’s Karman, Samoyed, dark expressive eyes & well placed alert ears give an enchanting expression, fluent harmonious action, ample coat & super condition.

PG4 was Austmans Raise The Game, Australian Cattle Dog, outstanding blue of excellent type & quality, well moulded muscular head with punishing jaw, super crisp jacket, would have placed higher but can be wayward in front action at times. When his movement matures he will be a real force to reckon with.  



Utility group

It was a great honour to judge the utility group at this friendly & well organised show, held in the Borders. I thank the officers & committee for their very kind invitation. The quality of the exhibits was excellent & many of those shortlisted could win on a future occasion.

I pulled out eight for further consideration: Akita, Boston, French Bulldog, Lhasa, Keeshond, Miniature Poodle, Shar-Pei, & Shih Tzu.
