Critique

So pleased to be invited by the Association to give my first time CC’s in this special breed and a huge thank you to all the exhibitors who supported me, many making a long journey to do so, a day I will always cherish!
VD – 1 (1)

PD – 2 (1) 1 Tarelli’s Hunters Pride Jurajska Gwiazda At Tarockwood, 11mth old black dog, masculine head with dark eye and good earset, correct dentition, nice length of neck into layback of shoulder, chest developing nicely, straight front construction, level topline and tailset, well off for bone, feet ok, nice tuckup of loin, well angulated rear quarters with good width, coat just needs to tighten, a super temperament but just giving his handler a hard time on the move today.

JD – 2 (0) 1 Tarelli’s Hunters Pride Jurajska Gwiazda At Tarockwood. 2 Johnson & Stokes’s Talismanic Bag Of Tricks, 12mth old black dog, good head shape with pleasing expression, dark eye with small ears, teeth ok, neck of good length into well placed shoulders, straight front, chest coming on, neat feet, in good coat, topline falling off a little over the quarters, nice bend of stifle, hocks well let down, would not stand for his handler but moved ok.

PGD – 1 (0) 1 Carlin’s Haneslau Cousin Jack, 3yr old black dog, good male head shape with level planes, neat ears with a lovely dark eye, elegant neck into correct shoulder placement, deep chest with spring of rib, well boned, standing on good legs, level topline and tailset, tight feet, medium rear angles, in good coat of crisp curls, full of breed type, liked this dog a lot but he was not happy in the hall, he had effortless movement with good side extension, pushed for higher honours.

LD – 2 (0) 1 Mercer & Thomas’s Elkysar Black Arrow Over Stormacre, 22mth old black dog, pleasing head of good size with dark eye, neat ears and correct dentition, muscular neck into shoulder placement, straight front with deep chest, level topline, tail a little high on the move, in good jacket, nice feet and strong bone, well muscled rear quarters, moved out well, lovely boy and happy to award him RCC. 2 Lacey’s Fleetpaw First Officer, 2yr old black dog, masculine head slightly heavier than 1, nice dark eye with good earset, strong neck into layback of shoulder, deep chest and spring of rib, level topline and tailset, well angulated rear quarters, not in his best jacket today, well off for bone, moved ok.

OD – 1 (0) 1 Stephen’s ShCh Brightmeadow Never Say Die JW ShCM, 2yr old black dog, quality young man of great proportions and excellent overall balance, most lovely head and eye so typical of breed type with super expression, good in neck and shoulders and return of upper arm, great in forechest and spring of rib, plenty of bone and cat like feet, best jacket of the day, firm topline held well on the move, strong muscled rear quarters and well let down hocks which were used to great advantage on the move with super width and excelled in side extension, no hesitation in awarding him CC, BOB and delighted to watch him go a well deserved BIS4.

VB – 1 (0) 1 Batle-Hunter, Batle, Todd & Rahman’s ShCh/IrShCh Springcurl Seren With Kilima, 9yr old black bitch, beautiful lady full of breed type, feminine expression, balanced lovely throughout, super head shape with dark eye and small ears, good reach of neck leading into layback of shoulder, with a straight front construction and well ribbed up, level topline and perfect tailset retained on the move, correct bend of stifle, well let down hocks, catlike feet and good bone, in great coat, just a shame she did not want to stride out round the ring today as she did as a youngster. BV.

PB – 1 (0) 1 Jaques’s Curlabull Northern Dancer, 9mth old black bitch, pretty balanced head with dark eye and neat ears, correct dentition, good in neck and shoulder placement, straight forelegs, with nice chest for age and spring of rib, good tuckup of loin, well turned stifle, she was striding out but needs to be moved more freely, just needs a little more coat to complete the picture. BP.

JB – 1 (0) 1 Bett’s Talismanic Star Appeal At Kelsmere, 12mth old liver bitch, quality youngster with very feminine head and gentle expression, full of quality, straight in front, clean lengthy neck, well placed shoulder, good length of upper arm, well ribbed up, firm topline and tailset, strong rear quarters, moved with excellent reach and drive, presented in lovely curly coat, pleased to award her RCC.

PGB – 1(0) 1 Buchanan’s Fleetpaw First Lady, 2yr old liver bitch, of good size, pleasing head with correct eye shape and colour, straight in front with deep chest, strong topline and tailset, medium bend of stifle, not in her best coat today, tight feet, lacking drive on the move. LB – 4 (0) 1 Spraggins’s Maycourt Hot Love At Tusepo, 2yr old liver bitch, another nice youngster, typical in head and expression, straight forelegs with a deep chest, a little heavy over the shoulder for me, firm topline and good tailset, well muscled rear quarters, medium rear angulation, excels in coat and texture, good bone and standing on good legs, sound mover. 2 Gill and Peake’s Kelsmere Kascade At Saxonholme, 3yr old black bitch, lovely type, so typical in expression, correct eye shape of good colour, plenty of bone, well angulated front and rear, deep chest with spring of rib, coat ok, level topline and tailset, neat feet, has good overall balance but just did not move as freely as 1 which cost her the class on the day. 3 Jacques’s Curlabull Baltimore Raven.

OB – 6 (2) 1 Stephens’s ShCh Brightmeadow Just One Look ShCM, 5yr old black bitch, outstanding female who oozes quality, looked the complete picture today, the best of heads with soft expression, excellent angulation throughout, firm topline and tailset, presented in superb coat and condition, well muscled quarters, neat feet, lovely bone, just loved her effortless flowing movement around the ring, delighted to award her the CC. 2 Cooper & Denbigh’s Callabus Keep Left To Malanis, 3yr old black bitch, disappointed not to see this lovely girl push harder for top honours today, although a different type to 1 has all the attributes of a good well made bitch, well constructed throughout with plenty of bone, pleasing head and expression, deep in chest with tuckup to loin, good second thigh with well let down hocks, excellent curly coat, not as strong on the topline when standing, lacked vitality on the move, not the drive of 1. 3 Mercer & Thomas’s Lilholms Champagne A L ‘Orange Among Cawdowen.
