Judge’s Critique:

PD (1)
1 BPIB Arnold & Dobson, Roughyeds Regal George, pleasing black 10 month of age, of good type and balance, pleasing expression with correct ear placement, strong neck leading to well placed shoulders, well bodied with correct tight curl, moderate hindquarters and moved positively.
JD (2)
1/RCC Barber Tonispada Vuori Vincent by Blanshard, 12 month black who stood out in lie up for his overall balance and breed type here today, masculine head without coarseness and correct expression, strong neck and correct deep chest and shoulder placement, well bodied for his age with correct length of loin, tight curl and correct texture to coat pleasing hindquarters and moved with purpose
2 Arnold & Dobson, Roughyeds Regal George.
PGD (1)
1 Duff, Overbore League of Their Own, black with pleasing head shape, would have preferred more neck and bone if being critical for me, correct front assembly, deep through chest and ribs well bodied with tight curl, strong second thigh moved ok.
OD (2,1)
1 Barber & Barber & Barber, Sh Ch Foxriever Picture Perfect For Blanshard, liver coloured male of balance and quality, super head shape, masculine but not over done in any way, eye to coat colour spot on, plenty of bone and tight feet, correct shoulders and deep chest, coat of good quality with tight curls well bodied and well muscled hindquarters, correct topline and tailset moved very well, pressed hard for Res CC.
VD (1)
1/CC Stephens’ Sh Ch Brightmeadow Never Say Die JW ShCM, a lot has been written about this dog and I was not disappointed when I got to go over him. His look belying his 7 years of age, he has a masculine wedge shaped head with oval eye and soft expression. Strong neck leading into well placed shoulders, deep through the brisket with an abundance of tight curl, plenty of substance and standing on well arched feet. Strong loin and well muscled second thigh, moved well and with correct use of tail.

1 Duff, Overbore League of Their Own.
JB (2,1)
1/CC & BOB, Stephens, Ravenho Up Town Girl for Brightmeadow JW, my star here today, 17 month feminine black with the prettiest of expressions, correct wedge shaped head with the correct eye colour, well placed ears, flowing neck leading to well placed shoulders, bone and feet, good depth and width to chest with correct spring of rib for her age. Strong loin with moderate tuck up, well muscled hind quarters and movement so true, correct curl to coat and showed and presented well. Held her topline standing and on the move. Pulled out all the stops for BOB. One to watch.
PGB (2,1)
1 Buchanan, Curlies On Wings Crossroad Glory, liver with pleasing eye colour to coat, feminine expression, classic front assembly, deep through the chest, enough bone with good feet, well bodied with strong hindquarters, tight curl and moved well.
LB (1)
1/Res CC, Bain & Bain, Crimblescurl Time to Tango at Wenichones JW, balanced black with pleasing outline, pleasing expression and correct shape to eye, arched neck leading to well placed shoulders, enough bone and stood on good feet, deep chest and well bodied, enough second thigh and moderate turn of stifle, moved well.
OB (2)
1 Cummings, Molokain Enchanted One, black of good size, type and balance, pleasing head leading to well placed shoulders and front assembly, strong chest well bodied with correct curl, held her topline standing, correct hindquarters with moderate turn of stifle, poor movement behind lost her for higher placement in the challenge.
2 Spraggins & Spraggins, Tusepo Amazing Love, liver with pleasing head and expression, eye shape and ear set, well boned standing on good feet, well bodied correct curl. She in my opinion was over angulated behind and wasn’t helping her handler when standing.
VB (2)
1 Stephens, Sh Ch Brightmeadow Just One Look Sh.CM, 10 years pleasing out line and balance, super feminine expression, clean through the neck leading to correct forechest and front assembly, correct depth of brisket and well bodied, super tight curl, correct hindquarters and moved ok, shown in hard condition, a credit to the breed.
2 Buchanan, Fleetpaw First Lady, 7 year liver pleasing wedge shaped head would have preferred a better eye set, well arched neck and correct front assembly, well bodied with correct curl to coat, deep chest, plenty of bone and moved ok.

1 Buchanan, Curlies On Wings Crossroad Glory.
