Bitches Miss Lucy Koster
I would like to thank the committee for their kind invitation to judge at, what has always been, my favourite show. Unfortunately, after a glorious week, the weather took a turn for the worse. Along the same lines that some dogs don't show well in the heat, I think that, sadly, some of the girls here were affected by the very cold and wet conditions.
Having judged the dogs back in March, I found that the bitches did not, on the whole, have the same depth of quality. This is something that should be seriously considered - after all a breed cannot survive on the quality of its stud dogs alone - as the old saying goes 'it takes two to Tango!!'
I was very pleased with my final line-up, although sad to say they were all Blenheims. Where are all the lovely wholecolours? They seem to be on a downward spiral and would go so far as to say they are at their lowest ebb at the moment, both dogs and bitches.
I was in complete agreement with my co - judge for the lovely Craigowl Billy Elliott to be BOB and Lanola Salsa - Best Puppy.
CC Taylor's Rosscrea Bedazzled
RCC Bubb's Wandris Pantomime
Best Puppy Goodwin's Lanola Salsa
     
Minor Puppy (12 entries, 2 absent)  
1 Turnbull's Peakdowns Tatianna
Petite, pretty blen of 6mths. Heavier marked jacket of good rich colour and correct texture. Held a super outline whilst standing. Her movement was so sound and steady for such a baby. Appealing headpiece, her eyes showed a wisdom that belied her age. Good pigmentation all through. Useful size with good bone and substance. A very happy little lady, who won this class with a bit to spare. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from her in the not too distant future.
2 Hindle's Ellisiana Shan Tung
Another blen, although lighter marked this time. In lovely coat of good colours all through. Shapely outline, although a little longer cast than 1. Was giving her handler a hard time and just about did what was required of her. Moved well when settled.
3 Baillie's Ellisiana Shot Silk at Fyrnrose
Res Gill's Florindale Sapphire Skye
VHC Waters' Maibee Moonlight Serenade NAF
Puppy (17, 8)  
1 Goodwin's Lanola Salsa
Beautiful blen bitch who was competing in her last puppy class here. She absolutely exudes breed type. Stunning head with good, flat topskull, framed by correctly placed, well feathered ears. Large limpid eyes with black halos, balanced muzzle and good strong lipline. Crested neck blending on to well laid shoulders, short level back with good hind angulation showed the promise of good movement and I was not disappointed. Add to this a correctly set and carried tail and she could not be denied this class. I was very tempted by her in the challenge, but she was not in as good coat as I have seen her, and today she showed the immaturity of her age. I have no doubt she is one for the future. BEST PUPPY
2 Inglis' Craigowl Colombia
Heavily marked tri in super coat which was presented to perfection, as always from this kennel. Lovely size with adequate bone. Attractive head, although not as developed as 1. Moved a little erratically at first showing but settled well. Possessed a gorgeous, clean, typical outline when standing. One of the nicest tri bitches I judged today.
3 Town's Judyland Melissa at Barsac
Res Barrett's Sorata Lazy Daisy at Salsara
VHC Kerr's Kinvaar Serenity
Junior (14, 2)  
1 Fry & Jackson's Amantra Iolanthe
Ultra feminine blen who is just coming back into coat. On the lightly marked side for my tastes. Carrying a good coat which was clean and well presented. Enchanting head, largest of eyes of correct colour, well tapered muzzle of correct length, which, at first glance, can appear a little short due to her slightly generous markings. Reachy neck set on superb lay of shoulder. Short coupled, neat body shape presenting a compact outline. Felt she could use an extra pound or two on her frame to give better substance, and she lacked that extra 'joie de vivre' in the final challenge.
2 Maclaine's Pennygown Pants On Fire
Another well coated blen. Her forte is her outline. She is so well made she couldn't stand wrongly if she tried. Well balanced body, with just the right amount of leg for length of back. Lovely rich chestnut markings on a shimmering, pearly background. Covered the ground easily, a bitch who really likes to stride out. A close decision here, but she had to give way to the outstanding breed type of 1.

1 Scott's Toscam Monte Lucia
Pretty blen of a useful size and shape. Super neck & shoulders, short level back holding a good topline both standing and on the move. Moved well with plenty of drive. Sweet head & expression with good pigment all through.
2 Smith's Beaudale Ebony Eyes
On first view I thought this well coated b&t was going to be my class winner. Lovely bitch who, I think, was objecting to the adverse weather conditions (she wasn't the only one!). Was not very happy and it showed. Attractive head, would prefer a slightly shallower stop.
3 Coull's Rothes Rachel
Res Powell's Newroyds Shakira Margareith JW
Novice (12, 2)  
1 Lymer's Lymrey Hi Fashion
What a little stunner this young lady is. In super coat, a shapely bitch, with good bone and plenty of substance for her size. Loveliest of heads with the most melting of expressions. Neat ,compact body with good spring of rib and correct angulation all through. Moved well once she had settled. Exudes breed type and is one that can never be overlooked.
2 Bailey's Rubina Warmest Amber at Aldoricka
Richly coloured ruby, had left all her clothes at home. Clean shape with strong lines all through. Jet black pigment and large, dark limpid eyes. Moved well when settled.

1 Taylor's Rosscrea Bedazzled
Here was my star of the day - she certainly dazzled me! For me, this bitch exemplifies everything a cavalier should be, a real Toy Spaniel. She took my eye immediately in what was one of the stronger classes of the day. From her nose to the tip of her ever-wagging tail, everything was in proportion and so well balanced. She has the sweetest of heads, with large, really round, dark eyes. Gently sloping stop, tapered muzzle with just the right amount of cushioning. Clean, straight front, good upper arm, sitting correctly under the withers. Crested neck blending into well-laid shoulders. Short back, with firm, level topline. Super spring of rib, good depth of brisket allowing for plenty of heart room. Superbly angulated hind quarters with lovely short hocks giving the desired drive behind. It was a sheer pleasure to watch her seemingly float around the ring with her proud head carriage, defying anyone to ignore her - she never stopped showing. Add to all these qualities, an abundance of well marked coat, presented to perfection, and it had to be her day. My absolute pleasure to award her the CC, her first. I'm sure it won't be too long before she is carrying the crown that she so deserves, before her name. Both my co-judge and I felt the two CC winners complimented each other beautifully.
2 Sansom's Byermoor Queens English
Very attractive bitch who was unlucky to meet 1 in such fine form. I must admit to being surprised by how much I liked this little bitch. She comes across, at first look, as rather plain, but that is nowhere near the case. She has a blue print outline, so true to the standard. She is well marked, and although lacking in furnishings, this only serves to enhance her super make & shape. On the move, she possesses real reach and drive and holds her topline so well. She so impressed me; I brought her back in for a second look in the challenge. She couldn't quite match the head and finish of my eventual Res CC winner, but I'm sure she will do her illustrious parents proud.

Post Graduate (13, 2)  
1 Jones' Timsar Miss B'havin
This lovely, elegant bitch took my eye the minute she entered the ring. She is so true for size, shape and outline. Every piece fitting smoothly into the next, like a jigsaw. In profile she exhibits all the attributes I covert, short backed, with a good croup and tailset - no dropping away here, reachy neck with good strong lines. Gorgeous head with soft, kind expression - seemed to be smiling at me every time I looked at her. Built on classical lines, she is brimming with breed type and carrying plenty of coat. Moved well coming and going. One of 4 pulled out for top honours, when it came to the crunch her topline wasn't quite as crisp or clean cut as my eventual top winners.
2 Waters' Maibee Delores
Similar in type to 1 but built on heavier lines. Well marked, sturdy body with super substance. Pretty head, soft expression and lovely eyes, all so synonymous with this kennel. Not carrying such a good coat as 1 and appeared a little longer in loin. When she is back on form, can never be overlooked.

1 Turnbull's Peakdowns Caprice
Loved this unassuming little girl. Very similar in type to my CC winner. Exquisitely feminine bitch showing a neat, compact outline when in repose. Moved well with a fluid, easy gait, covering the ground effortlessly. She is correct for size, bone and substance, holding an attractive shape at all times. Very appealing head, with lustrous, dark eyes and gentle outlook, although could have used her ears to better advantage. She deserved to be pulled her into the last 4 for consideration, but sadly she seemed to have 'thrown in the towel'. I would like to see this lovely bitch again on a bright, warm, sunny day as I feel she was clearly affected by the miserable conditions here, and applaud her owner for his sympathetic handling of her.
2 Engel's Sanickro Angelheart
Lighter marked blen in good coat. Lovely size and shape. Moved ok with style and enthusiasm, although a little lose in front. Sweet head with expressive eyes. Appealed for outline and type. Couldn't match 1 for pigment.

1 Bubb's Wandris Pantomime
Having admired this lovely bitch from the ringside since she was a puppy, I was thrilled to have the chance to judge her. She had always been somewhat overshadowed by her more mature sister when in the lower classes, but the roles seem to have been reversed and she is now, truly, coming into her own. The first thing that strikes you about her is her happy disposition. She storms round the ring, exuding confidence, her eyes are bright and alert and she appears to be ready for anything! On closer examination, she is as equally impressive. A very sound, honest bitch of appealing type. Absolutely dripping in coat and presented to advantage. She is at one with her handler and does all that is asked of her. From her lovely head, good neck set on well laid shoulders, through to her short coupled back, nicely angulated hind quarters and correctly carried tail - she is all quality. Top this off with easy driving movement she makes a superb package. In a very close decision she had to settle for the, well deserved, Res CC.
2 Boardman's Volney Ruby Rosa
Sweet ruby with the most gorgeous expression. Largest eyes of the darkest colour, well placed in an attractive head. Strong, cobby body with fluid lines all through. Lovely bone and substance, moved soundly, with a spirit level topline and good tail carriage. Unfortunately, could not match 1 for coat and had to settle for 2nd in this strong class. Very much like her blen mother, a great favourite of mine, only in a ruby coat, showing what good breed type she possesses. A bitch that would be an asset to any kennel.

1 Rix & Berry's Ricksbury Royal Temptation
Heavily marked blen who is the latest champion for this renowned kennel. Having awarded her sire a Res CC some years ago, and admired her record breaking mother from the ringside on plenty of occasions, I found that she possessed many of their qualities. She is of such honest type. Large, dark eyes showing the true Cavalier expression. Well filled foreface, correctly set ears, which she used to advantage. Deep, richly coloured coat. Absolutely excelled in movement, going true both fore and aft, holding a level topline at all times. Did all her handler asked of her, but just lacked the sparkle I have seen her display on other occasions. Maybe another who would rather have been at home in the warm!!
2 Lymer & Scheidt's Lymrey Sweet Dream
This bitch had one of the best heads here today. Absolutely typifies the breed standard, she is so pretty. Largest of eyes, correctly tapered muzzle. Superb pigment throughout. Carrying a good coat which was well broken and of a rich colour. Felt she could do with losing a pound or two as she appears a little stuffy and more 'workmanlike'.
