Dogs. Miss Lindsay H Rennard
Many thanks to my stewards, Robin Green and Dick Terry, who were so helpful and efficient, and to the exhibitors for a good entry. The puppy classes lacked quality, although the winners were pleasing. It does astonish me that people who pay such large sums of money to enter championship shows do not take the trouble to train their dogs, making it virtually impossible for the judge to assess their movement and confirmation.

Minor Puppy (14 Entries, 4 Absent)  
1 Coaker's Ttitian Puppeteer of Homerbrent
A lovely ruby puppy whom I liked very much. Loved his head and expression, huge dark eyes with black eye rims and good nose pigment, very gentle, endearing face illustrating his friendly, charming temperament. Movement good, excellent type being small, stylish and sound with clean cut lines. Rich colour and straight silky coat. As always, very well shown by this exhibitor who showed this lovely puppy to best advantage. With the agreement of my co-judge, Best Puppy in Breed.
2 Stokes' Hold That Dream for Scouriemore
Richly coloured well marked Blenheim who was nice & compact with good spring of rib and bone. Attractive head & expression with large dark eyes. Coat starting to come in length. At present still appearing a little rangy but showed well to demonstrate his promise.
3 Waters' Maibee A Freelander Naf Taf
Res Lowe's Alawago Diamond Charmer
VHC Townsend's Broganzor Santorini
Puppy (16, 5) Very difficult class to judge, movement was not good.
1 Koster's Harana Ted Baker
Black/tan with a very attractive head and gentle, cheerful expression in his large dark eyes. At present appears slightly larger and stockier than I like but as he gradually relaxed and dropped into his frame showed a well balanced dog with good angulation and nice spring of ribs with plenty of coat.
2 Tarabad's Khatibi Duncan Disorderly
Lovely little well marked tricolour completely different in type to winner being immature and slightly on the leg at present. Smart and stylish with clean cut lines, sound and good size. Preferred the winner's expression but felt he was a promising puppy.
3 Hughes' Loranka's Party Games
Res Armitt's Brasingamen Fire Opal
VHC Shone's Cobalatino Leonardo
Junior (24, 3)  
1 Claydon's Brymarden Montana
Stunning Blenheim who is very mature for 13 months. Gorgeous expression, soft, friendly and gentle with huge dark eyes, a clear face and very attractive head. Delightful temperament, so friendly and cheerful. Very sound, with a good topline which he retained on the move. Lots of straight silky coat. Lovely dog who was in final 3 for the CC
2 Levy & Sedgwick's Pascavale Stanley
Dear little black/tan, totally different in type to winner, but liked him a lot. Very sound with a good topline, nice shape, small and square in type, plenty of coat, smart little dog.
3 Shinnick's Leelyn Kameron
Res Ackroyd-Gibson's Acewall Enigma from Toraylac
VHC Bayliss' Castlewytch Arizona
Yearling (20, 3)  
1 Lymer's Lymrey Hi Command JW
Blenheim, slightly larger than I like, but well made with a good reach of neck. Lovely expression - large dark eyes, clear face, very generous and friendly in outlook. Lots of coat, well marked and well presented, plenty of scope in his well balanced shape.
2 Godwin's Cavaliegh Sweetheart
A nice, richly marked blenheim dog, close up to the winner. Lots of character, very friendly, with a lovely expression and large dark eyes. Again a little larger than I like, but sound and well made, pleasing overall picture.
3 Barker's Kaishmar Cool Hand Luke
Res Lewis' Leelyn Bumble
VHC Gardiner & Dansage's Merriquest Royal Velvet
Post Grad (26, 2)  
1 Coaker's Kinevor Curtis of Homerbrent JW
Small square well marked Blenheim with lovely rich markings and lots of quality. Well presented with straight silky coat, he showed very well and being well balanced, stylish and well angulated, presented an attractive overall picture.
2 Maclaine's Lochbuie Billy Elliot
Smart little Blenheim, compact with a good spring of rib and well balanced. Good type, of similar make and shape in type to winner, he was very close up.
3 Thomas' Charlottetown Toby Thomas
Res Li's Avalcier Alessandro JW
VHC Wiggins' Whyteplace After Midnight SH.CM
Limit (22, 4) This was a lovely class, headed by with three super dogs
1 Inglis' Craigowl Billy Elliot
Stunning tricolour with tremendous style. Well constructed, with good reach of neck, well angulated shoulders and hind quarters, good spring of rib, and well balanced he presented an excellent overall picture. His topline and tailset are outstanding - level at all times (sadly rare in Cavaliers at present), he seems to move under his topline as he moves with drive and style. Lots of straight, shiny coat. Super head with large dark eyes giving a gentle expression, complimented by lots of rich tan. 20 years almost to the day since my first judging appointment, when my BOB was a then uncrowned Ch Craigowl Hoodwink, it was a great pleasure to give Billy Elliott the CC, with the agreement of my co-judge BOB, and delighted to hear he won Group 2, congratulations!
2 Gow's Lyncraeg Daydream JW
Delightful little Blenheim - I loved his vivacity and character! Well marked with lots of straight, silky coat. He excelled in shape, being small, compact and well angulated, with a wonderful topline and tailset. An excellent mover, with plenty of drive and style, there was a lovely spring to his movement and he retained his topline at all times. Full of Cavalier type - small, sound and cheerful. Not quite as good in eyes and expression as the winner, but his lovely character shone through in his expression. A lovely dog to whom it was a pleasure to award the Reserve CC and do hope he makes it to his crown.
3 Waddington's Spindlepoint Chancellor JW SH.CM
Res Hughes' Loranka's Jubilation
VHC Biggs' Kellorian Poetry In Motion
Open (7, 1) A quartet of champions in this class, all excellent for different reasons; they have changed places many times and could have done here.
1 Levy & Sedgwick's Ch Pascavale Enchanted
Lovely little Blenheim, small, compact and square, lots of breed type - a typical toy spaniel. Immaculately presented with lots of straight silky coat. Endearing little face with large dark eyes. Presented a very pleasing overall picture.
2 Bubb's Ch Wandris Entertainer JW
Well known Blenheim with lots of character shining through in his charming expression & large dark eyes. Have seen him looking a lot better than he did today, although it was still obvious why he has been so successful.
3 Lymer & Scheidt's Ch Lymrey Hi Octane JW

Bitches Mrs A H Rennard
Thanks to all exhibitors for the opportunity to judge this interesting entry and to the efficient stewards.
I found the entry difficult to judge, however, as I do wonder if handlers realise the importance of training their exhibits to move competently around the ring. This is the only chance a judge has to ascertain that the dog either fits together properly, or falls to pieces on the move. When they are circling the ring one can assess the outline and see the overall picture of the dog. On the day a lot of bitches were moved too slowly & thus they tended to pace, or hung by their collar so that they felt too uncomfortable & refused to cooperate.
I found that in some classes quality animals were hard to find.

RCC Sansom's Byermoor Queens English JW
Best Puppy McFarlane's Merryoth Maeve
Minor Puppy (21 Entries, 2 Absent)  
1 McFarlane's Merryoth Maeve
6 months tri, quite heavily marked but a super size and with a very positive outline for one so young. Sweet head and kind expression. Well put together and moved very well. Happy disposition and very well handled. Best Puppy Bitch.
2 Martin's Ttitian Puppet On A String
Another very young puppy - promising ruby. Good construction making a pleasing and balanced shape. Super topline and confident demeanour. Pleasing head and expression. Slightly longer than the first and not quite so together.
3 Mochrie's Downsbank New Image
Dear little blenheim who grew on me the more I looked at her . She is not at the moment particularly well balanced, but shows a lot of potential.
Res Tidswell's Allrena Annaliese
VHC Wilkinson's Faircharm Songbird
Puppy (20, 4) I found this class hard as there were few of the type I was looking for.
1 Ackroyd-Gibson's Toraylac Matilda
Another tri of the size and type which appeals to me. Very well handled to show off her good points. Sweet face and pretty head. Very good bone for her size giving her a quality look. More coat than most in this class but I would have liked less ticking in the white.
2 Li's Avalcier Mia
Well marked Blenheim who is full of quality but was very out of coat-typical for her age. Super outline and she moved well. Good size and balance. Pretty head and expression. Showed happily and confidently.
3 Stark's Tayfern Lark's Song
Beautifully marked and well presented tricolour. An object lesson for markings as her coat has no ticking and she sparkled. Expertly handled.
Res Townsend's Broganzor Face Value
VHC Mann's Cinderlace Portia at Lyndabelle
Junior (26, 5)  
1 Inglis' Craigowl Bilberry
Tri that I have admired from the ringside. The type and balance that I was looking for, although today she was playing her handler up terribly-she would persist in stretching herself out and refusing to show off her compact, square shape. Shapely head and a dear face - very friendly and saying cavalier in her expression. I feel sure she has a lot of potential if she will get her act together.
2 Barker's Kaishmar Cara Mia Mine
Well marked Blenheim, full of herself and shown and handled with style. Ideal size, well coated and with a great deal of quality giving her a good outline. Pretty head and attractive expression. Very well constructed. Good bone for her size. Close up to the winner.
3 Waters' Maibee Alexandria
Completed a trio of small and typy bitches. Not as far forward in head as the other two but has balance and a neat shape.
Res Stark's Tayfern Gossamer Wings
VHC Claydon's Brymarden Moon River
Yearling (22, 2)  
1 Goodwin's Lanola Salsa JW
A quality Blenheim with a satisfying, positive, outline. Loved her markings and the good contrast between her clear white and rich brown. Very well presented and in good condition although she could be more muscled up. Nice size and good bone. Very sweet character and she has a lovely face and expression. Really good dark, expressive eyes. A feminine, pretty bitch, who stood out in this entry, so that when I saw her in the line up there was no doubt in my mind to whom I wanted to give the C.C. (In fact, to me, she is a feminine version of her father to whom I also gave a C.C.) When it came to B.O.B. the dog's superb topline and tailset and very positive movement carried the day.
2 Fry & Jackson's Amantra Iolanthe JW
A bitch I have often admired from the ringside. She has a most beautiful outline and super topline and tailset. She has a sweet face and a pretty expression but for me is a little short in foreface. Very typical toy spaniel. She stands foursquare. An object lesson from her handler on how to get the best out of a really first class bitch.
3 Inglis' Craigowl Columbia
Another quite heavily marked tricolour. She co-operated with her handler much better than her kennel mate in the previous class, but is slightly heavier in type than the two above and not as feminine.
Res Smith's Miskhill Lisa Marie
VHC Wiggins' Trirayne Polly Tician at Whyteplace
Post Grad (33, 3)  
1 Sansom's Byermoor Queens English JW
Small, well made blenheim just what I was looking for. Lovely outline and she showed confidently and with a continually wagging tail. Her appeal to me is her type and her divine expression, which shrieks cavalier. One of the few who moved accurately fore and aft. From the side she presents a balanced picture and I could watch her go round forever. Although she was not in her best bib and tucker I was pleased to award her Res C.C.
2 Jones' Timsar Miss B'havin
Another lovely sized and very pretty blenheim. Very well made and coming into a really good coat. Well constructed and she has a good outline. Lovely head and kind expression. Showed well and sympathetically handled to bring out her good points. To use a cliché these two will change places many times as it was just a split hair between them.
3 Waters' Maibee Delores
Another small and pretty blenheim who I felt was not quite so well put together as the two above. A very nice type however and a lot going for her.
Res Conneally's Jordanic Capri at Coedgwylum
VHC Hall's Tasset Sweet Affair JW
Limit (22, 6)  
1 Moulden's Forever Romance of Whitecroft
Small, neat very well marked tricolour, beautifully presented. Her markings were crisp and had no trace of ticking. Lovely head and endearing expression. She showed well wagging all the time and she has a cheerful happy character. Really tri's are my least favourite colour and I found myself with 4 in the line up! A very well deserved winner.
2 Lowe's Alawago Diamond Magic
At last a nice B/T. Classical outline and a completely different type to the one above but equally good in her own way. Super topline and tailset and a great outline although slightly longer in back. Pretty head and nice face. Very well presented and handled well.
3 Lymer's Lymrey Hi Falutin
Blen with a delightful head and expression but I felt did not match the two above in construction.
Res Dix's Downsbank Winter Berries for Beewye JW
VHC Evans' Homebrood Peggy Pipkin of Purpleborn
Open (10, 2) Again the first two in this class could change places any day. Anybody who wants to learn how I thought dogs should be moved and handled should watch these two handlers- they are an object lesson in how to get the best out of a cavalier.
1 Taylor's Ch Rosscrea Bedazzled
Small, well constructed blenheim who reminded me of her paternal grandmother. Very happy disposition and waggy tail Nice outline and good markings. She won this class on her expression.
2 Vella & Towse's Miletree Classic Dream Cinderlace
Little pretty bitch with a wealth of flat, straight coat. Beautifully presented. Clean cut outline which she kept on the move. Certainly the type I was looking for and a quality bitch.
3 Hughes' Loranka's Summerlove
Completely different type although with lots to commend her. I felt the 2 above were more compact and together.
Res Grant's Granasil Winter Star
VHC Martin's Ttitian Marionnette
