Dogs. Miss L Koster
I would like to thank the Officers and Committee of the Eastern Club for inviting me to judge, and for the very warm welcome they extended.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day and was delighted with my final line-up. The day started well with 2 wonderful Puppy classes and continued with an impressive Junior and Yearling. I was, however, concerned with the intermediate classes – barring the first few placings - there was a distinct lack of overall quality. There was a great variance in type all through, particularly with heads. When I judge, as a ‘wholecolour person’, I try to imagine what each head would be like in every colour. A lot of parti-colour heads when looked at thus, would be very extreme and therefore, incorrect, but because of the optical illusion markings create, appear to be what they are not. Sadly, it seems, wholecolours are continuing their downward spiral. There were very few good ones, and the wholecolour class was extremely disappointing. Interestingly, though considered to be the hardest colour (and I have to admit, my least favourite!), tri-colours took 3 of the top awards, BPIS and Res BPIS

RCC Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Bruce
Best Puppy Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Bruce
     
Veteran (8 entries, 1 absent) What a lovely class of ‘Oldies’
1 Brooks & Irvines’ Ch.Shenlyn September Sexton
Well known blen of 10yrs. Looking really good here. Attractive head with lovely large, dark eyes giving a soft, gentle expression. In good coat, which was well marked. Moved effortlessly, covering the ground with ease.
2 Steels’ Astralea Classic Gold of Behabre
Another blen carrying a wealth of coat. Built on slightly smaller than lines than 1, but very similar all through. Didn’t have the fluid, graceful movement of 1.
3 Forresters’ Salbrie Versace
Minor Puppy (28, 12)  
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Ryton
This 7 mths tri impressed as soon as he entered the ring. Very much in the same mould as this breeders last ‘star’. Clean, crisp markings enhanced his dapper outline, so evenly proportioned and balanced all through. Decent neck arranged on well-angled shoulders. Short back, deep, rounded chest and neat loin. Nicely turned stifle and plenty of muscle in his hindquarters giving plenty of drive and precision, finished with a correctly carried tail, which was gently wagging. Was not disgraced against the Puppy winner in any way, just came up against my stolen heart!!
2 Waters’ Maibee Harrison
Adored this baby of just 6 mths. Lovely head so typical of his breeding. Huge dark eyes well placed in a sweet face of good proportions. Showed a super outline when standing and on the move, has the promise of a good coat, which was attractively marked.
3 Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Alfie
Puppy (16, 3) Quite a varied class with many differing shapes and sizes.
1 Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Bruce
This little chap just took my breath away. What an absolute corker!! From the minute he entered the ring he commanded attention, he has such style. I loved his father, Ch.Craigowl Billy Elliott, and this boy, dare I say, could be even better. Has many of the same attributes. At only his second show, he gave a good performance, his calm steady attitude belying his tender age. Has the dreamiest of heads that would be attractive in any colour. Pleasing neck placed on good shoulders. Ideally balanced, showing a neat outline, without being ‘boxy’. Every piece flowed into the next. Impeccably presented, as always, from these breeders. Top this off with sound, unwavering movement and the so-called ‘X Factor’ he possesses, he must be assured of a ‘Starry’ future. Res CC and with my co-judges absolute agreement Best Puppy in Show
2 Towses’ Miletree Signature
Another lovely puppy who just wasn’t quite so together as 1. Looked gorgeous in repose but not quite so precise on the move. Lighter marked blen of attractive type. Built on slightly bigger lines than 1 but was all in proportion. Has all the attributes to reach the top flight, just needs to pull it together.
3 Norths’ Jalesto Now I’m Here
Junior (17, 2)  
1 Hill & Webbers’ Montcolly Johnathon
Beautifully headed blen of 16 mths. Huge, dark eyes fitting into his well proportioned head of lovely type, so distinctive of his impressive ancestry. Neat compact body with good angulation all through, showing an attractive outline standing and on the move. Super front action with real reach, but has a tendency to crab a little behind. A touch more control from his handler should remedy this.
2 Pagans’ Kimark Coming Home to Sorata
Another lovely headed boy, this time in a ruby jacket. Beautiful eyes and the densest of pigment. Useful size, with everything fitting together well. Just out of coat here, but when he comes into full bloom will be one to watch.
3 Boardmans’ Volney Gazpacho
Yearling (18, 5)  
1 Kirschblaum & Vorderstrasses’ Miletree Nesun Dorma
Very glamorous blen just a month shy of his 2nd birthday. Presentation was outstanding, not a hair out of placed and shown to advantage. Most endearing head, ravishing eyes of deep colour. Neat muzzle, with clean lips and good fill. Fabulous bone with good, strong upper arm sitting well under the withers. Refined shape, showing true balance. Moved easily and gracefully but with good propulsion, holding a firm, solid topline. With the right exposure could be assured of a fine future.
2 Bubbs’ Cobbets Comedian by Wandris
This boy was absolutely full of the joys, moving with such verve. A blanketed tri, his outline was easy to evaluate. Bearing a profuse coat of real ‘blue’ black with pearl fringing. Pretty head, with crisp, clear markings. Similar size to my winner but just couldn’t match him for bone and substance.
3 Coakers’ Ttitian Puppeteer of Homerbrent
Novice (7, 0) Very close between 1 & 2
1 Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Jamie
Litter brother to my Res CC winner and another little cracker. Classic outline standing and on the move, short coupled with good neck and shoulder. Good hind angulation, short back with well placed and carried tail. Has the makings of a good coat
2 Aldous & Smiths’ Aranel Cosmic
Another lovely youngster. As the saying goes “the eyes have it” and this boy certainly does. Softest of expressions, well-tapered muzzle, and clean face. Couldn’t match 1 for pigment or hind action today, but am sure, with proper luck, should be this kennels next champion.
3 Pagans’ Kimark Coming Home to Sorata
Graduate (7, 1)  
1 Maclaines’ Lochbuie Play to the Gallery
Heavily marked tri of a lovely size and outline. Sweet head with an almost knowing expression. Has plenty of bone and substance for his size. Moved well with real verve. Completed the picture with a wealth coat.
2 Hunters’ Spennithorne Justin Thyme
Attractive blen built on larger lines than 1. Didn’t seem happy here and just wouldn’t ‘tow the line’ making proper assessment a little difficult. Am sure he will have better days.
3 Cranes’ Cranvarl Royal Albert
Post Graduate (10, 3)  
1 Hughes’ Loranka’s Enchanting
My notes say ‘WOW!!’ I have admired this beautiful tri, since his debut last spring and his many wins, since then, testify to his quality. He epitomises everything I look for when judging. A small, correctly, balanced dog, with just the right length of leg to body. Reachy neck, fitting on to well laid shoulders. Amply covered body with plenty of rib. Good croup with tail coming straight off, in perfect line with his backbone. Lovely quarters with good angulation and the desired short hocks giving lots of drive. Whilst moving, he flows, each step fluidly connecting to the next. His coat is of a satiny texture in sparkling condition. The colours were sharp with bright tan everywhere it should be. His head is beautiful, flat top skull with well placed, heavily fringed ears, framing his face attractively. Gorgeous eyes, brimming with expression. Just the right amount of fill and length to muzzle. I confess when imagining his head in a b&t, I recognised my own Ch.Starman and this clinched it for him. My pleasure to award him his First CC and with my co-judges agreement BIS.
2 Levy & Sedgwicks’ Pascavale Stanley
Profusely coated b&t. A dog of useful size, showing a classic outline when standing, which is his real forte. Satisfying head of nice proportions – for me would like a larger, kinder eye. Moved jauntily around the ring with a ‘look at me’ attitude.
3 Mynotts’ Honeybet My Way
Special Mid Limit Blen & Tri (12, 3)  
1 Ackroyd-Gibsons’ Acewall Enigma from Toraylac
The more I saw of this well marked blen, the more I liked. He is very nicely made, with a fantastic outline and style. Attractive head, maybe a little more of the older style than is seen today, with correctly set ears that he carried to advantage. Very high spirited young man who sailed round the ring exuding confidence, holding his topline and carrying his tail suitably. Impressed enough to be pulled into the last 4 for top honours.
2 Claydons’ Brymarden Montana
Heavier jacketed blen of appealing type. Beautiful head, eyes and expression. Not holding himself so well and one of a few dogs yet to come back into bloom after the winter.
3 Allertons’ Kavacay Magic Dream of Deeriem
Special Mid Limit B/T & Ruby (7, 1) A very disappointing class
1 Loades’ Rosirius Razzle Dazzle
A class winner under me last time I judged dogs, and he has developed into a sound, attractive gentleman. Super coat of deep, rich red.  Lovely headpiece with large, expressive eyes and good pigmentation all through. Has a tendency to lose his topline a little on the move.
2 Sidery-Smiths’ Whiskey Galore at Wingspan
Smaller built ruby of a good rich colour. Head yet to reach full potential, but displayed a nice outlook. Moved and showed well. Better presentation would aid his cause considerably.
3 Lunams’ Flossybrook Total Eclipse
Limit (16, 2)  
1 Rix & Berrys’ Ricksbury Royal Escape
This is the latest from a very successful combination that has produced a number of champions in recent times and this boy could be the next. I was impressed with how this heavily marked blen had come on. He has always had the body and movement to get him noticed, and now his head has come up to par to match. Wearing a heavily marked jacket, he is in the same mould as all his predecessors. Deep, richly coloured coat. Absolutely excelled in movement, going true both fore and aft, holding a level topline at all times. He is of such honest type. Large, dark eyes showing the true Cavalier expression. Well filled foreface and correctly set ears, which he used to advantage.
2 Lymer & Scheidts’ Lymrey Hi Command
Another lovely blen who is built on similar lines to one, just a touch bigger all over. A more broken coat of soft, silky texture. Sure footed, effortless movement, he exudes confidence and attitude. Lets himself down by not using his ears enough and thus concealing his ‘piece de resistance’, which is his head. Large limpid eyes of a good colour carrying a little twinkle of naughtiness! Clean cut markings, nicely filled and full of condition.
3 Squelch & Windells’ Leelyn Bruno
Open (6, 0)  
1 Bubbs’ Ch. Wandris Entertainer
I have loved this dog since he was a puppy and he has pretty much dominated the showring from an early age. He fits the standard as if it had been based on him! Beautiful head, with such stunning eyes, well tapered muzzle, good lipline, all finished with correctly set ears. Clean cut markings emphasizing good proportions. Exquisite neck & well laid shoulders melded into a short back and strong croup. Moved true both ways. Today he just wasn’t as ‘up on his toes’ as I have seen him and appeared a little fatigued but still did enough to be in my last 4.
2 Baker & Parks’ Ch. Keyingham Branwell
This is a dog of out & out quality. When I last judged him, he was an exuberant young dog who put his handler through the ringer at every opportunity! Age has not extinguished that sense of fun and he still plays to the crowds. Liked his compact size and flowing outline, carrying a profusion of coat. He is still a bit too ‘pretty’ for me, preferring the eye and expression of 1.
3 Voges’ Royal Hero’s Freedom Forever
Special Open Bred by Exhibitor (5, 0)  
1 Rix & Berrys’ Ch. Ricksbury Royal Hero
Older brother of my Limit winner, these breeders must be admired for producing such consistent type, and a lot of my previous remarks apply here. Glorious head and eye with a really kind expression. Neat compact outline with easy flowing movement. Carrying a slew of coat, which was positively gleaming with health and condition.
2 Rennards’ Deranmar Michael
Well broken blen of similar make. Ultra sound mover, holding a strong topline and ever wagging tail. Jet black pigment, with lovely eye halos, enhancing his large dark eyes. For me, didn’t have quite such a plush, appealing head as 1.
3 Shinnicks’ Leelyn Kameron
