AV IMPORT PASTORAL
1 Smee “BALTHAZA PUMIDA AVEC SCHWAVBERN” (IMP CZE) PUMI. D.
A three year old I’m very familiar with, as always such a confident exhibit, especially on the table. So well presented, standing all square, really good ear placement, so important in his breed. Soft expression, good reach of neck into the firmest of top line. All angles good, ok for bone and a delight to go over.

1 Wicker & Munday “ JACALOUS CATCH ME IF YOU CAN FOR VUKASIN” B.
9 month and so impressive, liked her approach into presentation, calm cool and very collected, so good for type, quite well covered, so feminine in head, which was well balanced, used her well placed active ears to best effect. Correct shoulders, upper arm of equal length, well tucked in elbows. Nice straight front legs, moderate angle to pasterns, tidy feet. Underline good. She was such a well constructed rear assembly which gave her an eye catching side gait. BP in Breed, BP in Group. BP in Show can’t be bad. Well done.
1 Morris “ CWNHAPUS SVARGALOKA “ JW Shcm D
Just 2 year old, did well to win this class and BOB, but let his owner down later in the day. Such a well developed front so good for type, and steady in presentation. Classic head, clean level top line, not showing any pin bones. All angles good, especially fore hand. Moderate coat, and so well on the move. Had the ideal reach and drive required by the breed. Liked him. BOB
2 Wickers & Munday “VUKASIN DANCE WITH DRAGONS” D
3 year old red male, not as well covered as I like even so so much to like about him.
Even proportions, which included the best of top lines. Smart head piece, good eye shape and colour, best angles both fore and aft. Very sound, but need to level out and retain and even pace. Well done.
1 Wickers & Munday “ JACALOUS THE SOURCERER AT VUKASIN “ JWShcm
5 year old robust male handled by the families young son, who did his best but did struggle with this mature male. The young man does have a future and If looks can be believed I do feel he enjoyed himself. The dog in question is a very rounded male in his absolute prime. So good for type and carrying a really good profile. Love his masculine head piece and devil may care attitude in other hands. I’m sure he would have been challenging for best. Very sound but I couldn’t judge his movement. Another day I hope.
For an open show this was an excellent entry. So many good for type, but some not so good. We should always look for working qualities, such as confident and soundness. Most I’m pleased to say did have these qualities.
1 Haensel “SHERKARL MAGIC TOUCH “ D
14 month, sable. Strong well balanced head, well placed ears, used and giving him a very confident expression, eye shape and colour good. Excellent pigment. Well balanced fore hand, ok for size, and held a firm level top line on the move, good feet. Liked his rear assembly, good angles and short firm hocks did better than most on the move. Well done.
2 Eldridge “ELDRIDGE KELTIHOPE WISPA’S GIRL “ B
Just over a year old slightly shaded sable. Not a very attentive youngster, well proportion head, quite a soft expression top line could be better, upper arm a fraction short. Needs to go up a gear on the move, but sound.
1 Templeman(Costelloe)“STONEYCOMBE SWEET TALK FROM KARMIDALE”B
2 year old, outstanding young bitch, a reserve best if the rosette had been available. Such an eye catching rich sable. So alert, on her toes and really demanding attention. So feminine in head, expression, and attitude. Ideal reach of neck into a well defined wither, best of top lines. Forehand just could not be any better, good feet, nice tuck at underline. Reach assemble besides being correct was used to drive this girl into a sound smooth side gait, coupled with pace. One to watch. Well done.
2 Laversuch “PACARANE POLAR STORMTIME “ D
2 year old Tri. Good for size, smart semi mature young man, very even proportions through out tight lips, well placed ears and rather devil may care expression. Correct
Angle on fore hand. Good straight fore legs. Top line held firm at all times. I felt his well constructed, did not come into play on the move he has the gear but didn’t use it. |Pace could be the answer.
3 Gruszka “SAMPHREY SEA BREEZE “ B
1 Dunn “NERAKLEE CHARDONNAY AT SHELLEARY” B
3 half year old sable, handler rather surprised to go best.? Correct in all area’s size, type, and at a guess won who could work well. Really good head piece, ears, eyes, expression, all gave a typical sheltie appearance. Super firm level top line. Good tail set. Both shoulder and upper arm of equal length. Elbows well tucked in, flexible pasterns, under line had a moderate tuck. She gave me just what is required in the rear assembly moderate angle, strong well let down hocks. Couldn’t fault her on the move. BOB and well handled.
2 Curtis “ KELTIHOPE IN THE FRAME AT YASLEYROSE “ D
Dark sable 6 year old, very mature but quite lively. Such a well collected male on the table. Strong head, alert and very attentive. Very good reach of neck into a well defined high wither. Level top line, both shoulder and upper arm had the correct angle. Good coat, well set hind quarters, muscular and used to provide a smooth side gait. Very sound.
3 Laversuch “ PACARANE POLLY FLINDERS “ JW B
1 Haensel “SHERKARL UPTOWN FUNK “ JW Shcm D
2 half year old, sable, quite mature for his age, as I feel the breed in general don’t reach the top of there game until about three to four years of age. Really liked him in presentation on the table attentive and eager to please, strong in head without being course, high ear set, good pigment. Very muscular although. Ok for bone and had enough to please in fore and aft angles. Pushed hard for best but lost the plot at times on the move. Girls on his mind. Even so very sound in coat, and so I’m told made up. Well done.
2 Gruszka “ SAMPHREY MOONLIGHT SHADOW “ JW D
Tri, 8 year old and not showing any signs of calling it a day. A robust male, strong well collected and showing a super profile. Loved his head which ticked all the boxes, ears in particular well set and used to best effect, would like a little more reach of neck to produce the elegant touch, but that is being picky. Excellent top line, good shoulders, elbows well tucked in. Hind quarters produce a smooth even gait, kept straight and running true away and back. Well done.
