A lovely entry, both numerically and in quality, which I enjoyed
judging. It was noticeable since I judged the club show that mouths
seemed to be much improved. In particular most of the young stock
had respectable reverse scissor bites with a full compliment of
teeth neatly arranged with the benefit being seen in good width to
underjaws. Shoulders varied considerably and there appeared to be
less of the Queen Ann fronts than I recalled. The habit of
overstretching the hindquarters still seems to be around and in some
even when I moved them the rear pastern was still over exaggerated
with no definition through the hocks. Presentation was, as we have
come to expect, of the highest order, the only down side to that
being that on several occasions when I lifted the hair away from the
eyes underneath I was confronted with not just dirty but matting
around the eyes. Quite a few eyes were also rather round spoiling
expression. The BOB winner put up a commendable performance in the
group and made the cut.

carried high, decent rear angulation, moves true.

move but saw enough to assess true action.

Me If Ya Can at Askja.
- Jones Tarendes Smokey Bear, well grown gold but
beautifully balanced, good in head and eye with firm underjaw,
excellent front, shoulder and clean neck, decent ribs of length,
moved true if a little reluctantly.

balanced with masculine yet not overdone head, lovely eye and
expression, good mouth and underjaw, shoulders well laid and clean
in neck, firm topline and loin, good tail carriage, enough rear
angulation, moves true and steps out with style, still young and
feel his best is still to come.
- Hemsleys Hazgaye Interceptor, of
very useful type being soundly put together and confirms this with
his excellent movement, not quite the expression of 1.
- Heslam & Cains Kutani Alfie Moon,
masculine and well balanced gold, liked his head and eye with firm
underjaw, clean neck and shoulder, excels in rib and firm loin,
level topline with tail carried high, decent hindquarters with which
he easily demonstrated stylish action.
- Saunders Bellellen Boy O
Boy, this grey was very close up here and so soundly constructed but
could not quite match the reach of 1 going around.
- Scholes Rossgilde Thumpers Web, could not get
past this beautifully constructed gold, solid all through, compact
yet long enough to retain balance and allow for free reachy driving
movement, spot on for size and giving nothing away in masculinity,
his head is beautifully laid out with correct proportions between
skull and muzzle, stop sufficiently defined and dark eyes placed
forward giving delightful expression, mouth and underjaw complete
the picture, fore and hind angulation in harmony, cleanest of necks
flowing into level topline topped off by firm tail carriage, CC and
in the challenge for BOB felt his arrogant head and neck carriage
gave him that extra something to make him stand away.
- Cains Kutani
Rogue Trader, another impressive lad, touch stronger in skull but
with appealing expression, excels in length of rib and firm loin,
enough rear angulation, presented in tip top form.

- Luscotts Ch Jalus Dan Dare, remember seeing this dog as a youngster
from the ringside and thinking him a touch coarse, well it does not
do to jump to conclusions for I was most pleasantly surprised when
given the opportunity to go over him to find that he is not overdone
and is in fact very well constructed with the best of shoulders and
straight forelimbs, head properties are well laid out with lovely
eye and expression, clean neck into a good set of ribs and firm
loin, rear in perfect balance with front, topped off with good tail
carriage, first time around the ring his reachy movement caught my
attention, unlucky to come up against the limit winner but well
deserved the res CC.
- Hollands Ch Vaderlands Glory Alle-Luya, well
turned out and attractively headed mature gold, very honest and
typical in all respects but does not quite project himself to full
advantage, does everything that is asked and moves respectably.
- Phillips Saxonsprings Buddy with Dimara.
- Hollands Vaderlands Eva Licious, thought this
gold quite special, loved her head and expression with that snooty

with style and ease, BP.

decent neck, front and shoulder, firm topline, moves true.

- Phillips Dimara Pic A Chick, this is one young
lady with attitude, standing she portrays a lovely clean outline set
off with a most attractive headpiece and expression, going around
she demonstrates impressive action without exaggeration, when it
came to the less exciting up and back she gave her handler a hard
time but persistence paid off and her exceptional overall quality
merited the Res CC in good company.

lovely neck and shoulders, just preferred expression and attitude of
