1 Caldicott “ ARITAUR ON A MISSION TO PHILMONT” JW B
2 year old and I still feel she’s not quite finished, maybe another year will do it. Such an outstanding semi mature girl who never fails to disappoint. So good for type. Well balanced throughout, especially head piece. Best of top lines, well boned without being to heavy, ultra sound, and handled with care. BOB. G2.
1 Davey “DICEULON INDIANA FOR KITWE “ B
20 month old Brindle, well presented, liked her well developed head piece, used her ears to best effect. High wither into the best of top lines, good tail set. All angles correct. Nice tuck of loin. Sound mover in all directions. Would be even better on grass. RBOB.
1 Hepworths “KAOTIK POLE POSITION “ D
20 month old R/W Such a good profile, just needs to grow on and fill out a little. Very good for type, excellant head piece, so well balanced. Liked his excellent reach of neck into one of the best top lines of the day. Good front, very roomy chest proportions. Liked the moderate angled rear assembly, used of course to provide a good follow through on side gait. Liked him.
2 Vearncombe “ROBYMIST CHERRY MANHATTAN WITH RUPTION KNIGHTCOTT “ B
2 yr old R/W Not a big girl but so well put together. Even proportions throughout pushed the winner to the line, such a close call. Her short strong hock, gave her the desired thrust on the move, another I’d like to see on grass. Well done.
1 Tibbotts “ MISS TRICKS FORONE NITE ONLY “ B
3 years old mature, and in fine fettle. Loved her soft expression coupled with a confidence I always find with this breed. A brindle with a quality head piece, on her toes and so well put together , shoulders to upper arm in particular very good. Well defined wither into the best of top lines. Very easy mover, so sound and running true at just the right pace. Very good handling. BOB. Lost in a small but strong group.
2 Vearnacombe & Hale “ MACWATT WEVE GOT IT ON WITH SEEFIELD” D
7 year old. R/W very mature male, showing a well balanced profile, a little heavy at the moment, but really enjoying his day out. Handled with care.
1 Smith’s “ SHOWSHOES TELMARINE KING “ D
15 month and reasonably mature for his age, handled to perfection. Robust and so very well balanced. Strong male head piece, good eye shape and colour, best of ears, tight lips. Had strength in neck coupled with a well defined wither. Top line good, as was his tail placement and carriage. Held his top line most of the time. Very good for bone, excellent shoulders to upper arm. Enough angle to rear assembly which gave him the desired smooth side gait. RBOB. One to watch.
2 Woodgates “ SNOWSHOES MOUNTAIN RANGER “ D
profile was good and I found him ultra sound. Handler needs to keep him straight. RBOB. My best puppy was Smiths SNOWSHOES SILVER LINEING. B 10 month old and one I really will watch with interest. BP. PG2.
1 Smiths “ SNOWSHOES KINGS LEGACY “ Shcm D.
3 year old and apley named. A smart top size male, on form and handled to perfection. So much to like about him good for type, masculine, and so well balanced both in head and body. Very confident expression. High well defined wither, top line firm and very muscular. Kept his tail in place at all times. All angle good, nice tuck at loin. Short powerful hocks used to best effect. Couldn’t be faulted on the move. BOB. G1.
1 Lefebvre-king “BAMABEL NARISSA OF BUTTONLOVE “ B
19 month old a smart young lady, but needs to improve in presentation. Well balanced good for type and scored so well in profile. Really like her front assembly, especially shoulders to upper arm. Good top and underline. Correct tail carriage. RBOB.
2 Vick “ AVA VON DER ALTEN FESTUNG AT VICK ANGELS” (IMP HRV) B
13 month old, but far from settled in presentation, I know he’s young but he should be more up to speed at this age. So much to like about him very masculine, hard, well very muscular top line. Ok for bone, and I hope a very promising future, time will tell.
1 Vick “MIA VON DER ALTHEN FESTUNG AT VICKANGELS” JW Shcm B
Same kennel as my graduate, but by far a better quality exhibit at 2 half years of age, so very feminine and so very well presented. Liked so much about her. Really well balanced head, neat well placed ears. Wither to tail level and firm. Carried her tail well, ok for bone. Well placed shoulders and upper arm, elbows well tucked in good under line. Moderate turn of stifle, and very good feet fore and aft. Ran true coming and going but excelled on side gait. Well handled. BOB G3. Well done.
2 Lefebvre-king “BUTTON LOVE MY DASHING LAD “ D
3 year old male could improve with better presentation, seems to be a family trait , next time round I would be looking for a lot of improvement as this lad is to good to waste. Liked his overall profile, angles and attitude. Very sound, and should be more collected. Even so well done. I will look out for him.
GREAT DANES. NO ENTRIES.
AVNSC WORKING PUPPY
1 Riaubyte FIRE IN PAWS THE LORD SNOW “ D
10 months Sib Husky liked this young man, not so long in body as some would think, I found his proportions very even, and so good for type. Liked his very soft and confident expression, neck of good length, and wither well defined. Top line couldn’t be better, I felt he had the ability to cope as all angles were word perfect. Good feet, no ribs or pin bones on display. On the move he excelled so very well collected. Well done.
2 Hills “ INGOOSH VD VANEYBLIK HOEVE “ IMP D
A Bouvier of some note, but time will tell if what I hear comes to fruition.
1 Riaublte “ FIRE IN PAWS UNBELEIVABLE “ B
2 years old as a par with the puppy winner, but unexpectedly lost her top line at the most in appropriate moment, that was in the challenge. Pity. Even so, very much to like about her. Again my type of Sib , super well balanced profile, good bone without being to heavy. Used her ears well and gave a grand display on the move. So very light on her feet, a joy to watch. Well done.
1 Allen “ KANUKALOS ALLEGRO “ D
3 half year old, Hovawart, turned out in immaculate condition, one I’ve seen mature over the years and he never fails to please. So very good for type, best of heads, strong keen expression, tight lips and used ears. Top and under lines very good. Tidy feet, needs a little more thrust on hind quarters. Even so a delightful exhibit. BAVNSC & G4.
2 Bliss “ANKORS PRIMAVERA “ B
22 year old, Port water dog, came a close second to my winner. Good for type, with an especially well constructed front. Top line firm, good under line, ok for bone, and gave me the ideal sound side gait. Well done, promising.
