Chihuahua (Long Coat)
1st Culverhouse’ Lykath’s Flash Gordon, 8 mths up to size male, Good all round confirmation and moved with ease in profile. Should have a successful show career. BP
2nd Vaitekunaites’ Bramerita Dream Boy Lovely domed head and good ear set, but needs a bit more muzzle which would have given him better lying dentition. Balanced body and good bend of stifle thus ensuring he moved adequately in all aspects.
1st Culverhouse’ Lykath’s Peep Bo, 15mths young lady who needed better dentition, although a good head shape and ear set, with a lovely dark eye. Balanced confirmation resulting in positive movement.
Post Graduate (4,2)
1st Ayres’ Juchi Hilda Ogden, certainly no hair curling here. She is a pretty sable, petite girl, with correct head shape, good muzzle and mouth with full, correct dentition. She
enjoyed herself when moving in a positive aspect in parallel and profile.
2nd Lees’ Ridgehawk Sally Ann, another pretty girl, correctly shaped head who generally had fair confirmation but when moving was not as true in parallel and was close behind.
Definitely the best class of the breed, not only in quantity, but quality as well.
1st Culverhouse’ Lykath’s Tiffin, she is of a good size, beautifully, domed head and correct ear set, full dentition. She moved well in profile but was just a tiny bit close behind, but less so than other exhibits in class. BOB
2nd Caters’ Pixels Moonlight Express JW sable/white, correct shaped head, soundly constructed, but would prefer less of a ‘poppy’ eye. Moved adequately and parallel movement put her above other exhibits in class.
3rd Bradshaws’ Lykath’s Serenity.
Chihuahua (Smooth Coat)
1st Vaitekunaites’ Red Hot Chili Pepper By Milenda, 7mths fawn male, full of character wrapped up in a neat package, having all the attributes the standard requires, has a particularly good domed head, correct ear set and eyes, with full dentition. BP
1st Suttons’ Jicara Heartbreaker Nikitos, with a lovely head shape, eye and expression, really good forechest and length of rib to loin. Moved easily and with fluidity around the ring.
2nd Slavinecs’ Charonchi Tilly Trotter, another well made exhibit with many of the attributes as 1 but who was lacking pigmentation.
3rd Vaitekunaites’Milendo Etna
Post Graduate (4,1)
1st Slavinecs’ Silverchi String Of Pearls At Charonchi, a full of character, feminine girl who had good confirmation, all round and this showed in her movement especially when in profile. She enjoyed herself all the time.
2nd Bradshaws’ Lykath’s Serenity, cream girl, lovely head, eye and expression, good forechest, with good all round movement.
3rd Suttons’ Jicara Poised To Strike Nikitos
1st Slavinecs’ Copymear Chance, red/white 22mths male attributes as to standard with particularly good forechest, depth of brisket, spring of rib and correct length of loin. When moving he was as sound as a pound, in profile and parallel movement. BOB
2nd Suttons’ Nikitos Nothing Like Normal JW, tricolour with similar attributes to 1, with good dentition and pigmentation, generally moving well all round.
3rd Bradshaws’ Stanghurst Mamma Mia
1st Pipers’ Be Dog’s Topsail Cody of Zanjero (IMP DEU).What a cracking young man he is. 10 mths hairless, with a very smooth skin, good sound confirmation, excellent trimmings, a proper little stallion and this showed in his movement with brilliant footfall. No hesitation in giving him BP & BOB
2nd Tatnells’ Oki Doki Forseti’s of Spriritcrest(IMP CZE), another hairless whose confirmation was good all round, but was a little bit eractic when moving particularly in hind movement.
Post Graduate (1,0)
1st Peppits’ Crestspitz Shadow Walker Of Zanjero, 4yr old hairless, although I was concerned about the number of shave marks on his torso. He is of a good size with correct furnishings, dentition not as good as 1, moving adequately in all aspects
1st Edwards’ Speckled Lad Of Foaldown (TAF. At 9 yrs he was in good form and his overall construction was more than adequate. He moved very freely with no sign of stiffness, although he was lacking 3 teeth, he still deserved his place and RBOB.
1st Nolans’ Villenelle’s Lovin The Sun, 8 months full red coat, brilliant foxy expression, has good body under that coat, moved round the ring like he owned it and I wrote one word in my notes – Stunning. Had no hesitation in awarding him BP & BOB
1st Nolans’ Taurusdale Black Knight At Villenelle. Black male, with good dentition, good eye and ear set. Having gone over him, I was quite surprised that his movement did not reflect that.
Post Graduate (2,1)
1st Nolans’ Tuttsclump Pixie Serenade, 2yrs male with profuse coat, really foxy expression, good eye earset, correct size and bone, moved round the ring really soundly. RBOB Unlucky to meet BOB today.
1st Heaths’ Cresties Spirit In The Sky, 2 days over 6mths Italian Greyhound. Fawn with head of correct proportion, lovely eye and earset, leading into good lay of shoulder, good spring of rib, brisket and forechest, using his limbs to produce flowing movement for one so young. BAVNSC Toy
2nd Seaton & Woodwards’ Witchstone Vanguard, a well constructed ETT, in good proportion throughout, has a lovely character and he moved well, although he was plaiting fog in front today.
3rd Colliers’ Pugistie Apple Of My Eye
Post Graduate (4,0)
1st Westgates’ Wizzizz When I Need You, Havanese in good coat, and underneath good confirmation to match the coat. This resulted in powerful yet graceful movement both going, coming and in profile.
2nd Colliers’ Pug Pugistie Wish Upon A Star, Sable bitch, of good size, is well proportioned and cobby, moved adequately in all aspects but without the pazzazz of 1.
3rd Heaths’ Cresties Fly Me To The Moon
1st Urqharts’ Blackpark Double Diamond, this lovely Maltese worked wonders for me. He has great confirmation, particularly good forechest, lay of shoulder, spring of rib and length of loin, with the correct pigmentation both in eye and feet. As to movement he went round the ring like a little train, which was quite mesmerising. No problem in him not only winning the class but AVNSC Toy as well.
2nd Westgates Wizzizz Desperado, so unlucky to meet 1 today and it was nip and tuck between these two lovely exhibits. The profile movement of the winner was the separator today.
3rd Heaths’ Cresties Solar Deity
AV Toy Junior (6,4)
1st Tricketts’ Happypaws Going Places, Coton De Tulear, good head and expression, well proportioned throughout, in good coat and moved well.
2nd Morsys’Happypaws In The Loop, similar to 1 but maturity of winner won through on the day.
Post Graduate (5, 3)
1st Hancocks’ Flamencoton Seimei (Imp Esp), Coton De Tulear who complies to the breed standard, with particularly good head, eye and expression, is a very happy chappy and eager to show himself to best advantage.
2nd Frys’ Lazy Daze. Bolognese bitch of similar attributes to 1, good mover but coat was the decider today.
1st Hancocks’ Szolohegyi Bitanguzo Jett Coton De Tulear Bitch, in exquisite coat with a particularly good head shape and pigmentation. Confirmation supported the coat and she is as sound as a pound on the move.
2nd Clarkes’ Cotonkiss Heaven Help Us, another fine Coton De Tulear, but this time a male, who has the same excellent construction as 1. As with all coated breeds, when two are equal, coat and density of coat is the separator, as was the case in this class. Sure they will nip and tuck with each other regularly.
3rd Pearman & Venaccias’ Jespersens Izzy Wiggy At Mopseycoton.
