Dogs.   Mr D Crossley
Thanks to all exhibitors for their good sportsmanship and a nice entry with clean, well presented and generally happy cavaliers, despite the humid start to the day and later rain which forced us to the wet weather tents. This time adequate sized rings were available and the light was better than one normally expects in tents.
I was delighted with my line up and was pleasantly surprised with the favourable comments made to me after judging by both watchers and exhibitors (successful and not so well rewarded). I looked for outstanding Type, Conformation, Stylish movement, Presentation and Finish appropriate to age.
One often expects to find one or more top quality dogs in each class at this level and in most classes this was the case. However, after yearling class, outstanding dogs were fewer in number, but the overall standard in these classes was uniform, in that there were many dogs of good quality that lacked only style and/ or finish. Junior dog class was the opposite with all five placed dogs well capable of winning on there day. Open dog class, was a disappointment in numbers but was redeemed by a truly outstanding dog who I understand went on to win the toy group, and so it should have.

Inglis' Craigowl Ryton

3 Rogerson’s Rabymar Courageous Heart
Res Newson’s Grenrain Golden Bullion
VHC Davies & Williams’ Bowcara Casanova
Puppy (15, 1)  
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Ryton
Very nice tricolour of good type, correct construction, excellent reach of neck , full head good blaze nice tan markings and well broken coat markings. His good movement and a great show personality won him the class, Best Puppy Dog and Best Puppy in Breed.
2 Vella & Li’s Avalcier Olivier of Cinderlace

3 Brooks’ Moonvale Augustus
Res Rennard’s Deranmar Christopher
VHC Hall’s Tasset Royal Playboy
Junior (18, 7) Best quality class of the day.
1 Angell’s Charwelton Tate
I was very taken with this exciting young dog. A great make and shape, good true cavalier head flat skull, well set ears, and round dark eyes and black nose. Good reach of neck , well laid shoulders and a coby body, rounded rib cage, good rear angulation giving driving movement. Coat adequate for his age and of a rich blenheim colour shown in gleaming condition. RCC.
In the final line up I was delighted with his similarity to my CC winner they went round with assurance and style (RING PRESENCE) and appeared like father and son. They are not but do, from the pedigree, share the same genes, and fit my ideal cavalier type.
2 Smith & Aldous’ Aranel Cosmic
Another very smart blenheim. Shown in full coat and great condition, a well made dog similar in make to winner (as was the third in this class). I was splitting hairs for the places. I preferred the overall merits of the winner but would expect placings to alter on other occasions.
3 Gillhespy’s Lorphil Lyphard
Res Jones’ Timsar Mister Moonlighter
VHC Turnbull & Cooper’s Peakdowns Parker
Yearling (11, 0)  
1 Town’s Barsac Sadler's Wells
Tricolour. I try to be fair to all exhibits I judge, but I confess to judging stock by my own dog more stringently than others. Despite this I was very pleased to be unable to refuse this dog his class win. He is a toy spaniel in that he demands attention from his elegant outline good coat and markings and his attractive head, examination on the table reveals very correct and sound construction and this leads to good movement, level topline and well carried tail when moving, completing a full picture of a really good typy cavalier.
2 Hughes’ Loranka's Enchanting JW
Another tricolour but of a slightly larger make than the winner. Equally well made and positive in movement but I preferred the overall balance of the winner.
3 Fisk’s Rebhann Rebellion
Res Surman’s Allrena About Turn to Vallender
VHC Smith & Aldous’ Rosscrea Diplomatic
Novice (12, 3)  
1 Angell’s Charwelton Tate
Junior dog winner.
2 Jones’ Timsar Mister Moonlighter
Blenheim. Reserve in junior dog class, well constructed and good overall type narrowly beaten in junior, he was shown in good coat and condition and moved well and in standing nearer to the junior winner in this class his type similarity was evident for all to see.
3 Costello’s Bevelmount Barricello
Richly coloured blen. Good type and construction sound movement not disgraced in standing 3rd.
Res Crane’s Cranvarl Royal Star Struck
VHC Hedger’s Khatibi Tiger Tim at Alrewic

Res Davison’s Kenmilfore Xtraordinaire

Res Royce’s Stonepit Teddys Boy at Rucazan
VHC Pinder’s Scotlass Benjamino
Post Graduate (17, 1)  
1 Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymrey Hi Class
Nice type of dog, good coat of well broken up blenheim markings. This sound and good moving boy caught my eye with his style as he went around and did not disappoint when examined on the table. Masculine but attractive head and expressive eyes and good ears made a pleasing picture easy winner of this class.
2 Bate’s Chantismere Montana at Dakerima
Well marked coat of rich coloured blen. Good typy dog well balanced but needs to strengthen muscles to improve movement.

Res Hughes’ Loranka's Party Games JW
VHC Hunter’s Spennithorne Just Johnny
Mid Limit (15, 3)

Pleasing type not overdone in any way, good head masculine yet gentle expression created by full round dark eyes and black nose pigment good ear set, adequate neck, good rib cage coby body. well muscled giving strong movement.
2 Costello’s Beauella Radzinski JW
I judged this dog as a puppy and thought he would make up well. He has, and I liked the development he has made over the 2 years. Good construction pleasing head and good movement, I just preferred the balance of the winner in this class; could well change places and challenge higher honours on another day.
3 Baker’s Nevhill's Navarra
Res Gow’s Lyncraeg Daydream JW ShCM
VHC Higgins’ Chamanic Sentinel at Chesalatina
Open (4, 0)  
1 Baker & Park’s Ch Keyingham Branwell
There is not a lot to say about this dog that has not already been said. If you have read the breed standard; here he is. Shown to absolute perfection by his handler and presented to the highest level possible, this dog fulfils all my requirements in a true cavalier. Two years ago I judged another champion Wandris Entertainer and was similarly satisfied, but being greedy I would have liked to match them here. To other exhibitors I say look and keep on trying to improve on these dogs and the breed will progress. Worthy champion, my CC winner here and with complete agreement of my co judge Best of Breed, and later Toy Group winner.
2 Rennard’s Deranmar Michael JW
A really good soundly constructed, well marked blenheim, pleasing head and good eye. Shown in good condition and presents a good outline standing and on the move. However, in this competition he lacked the length and quality of coat of the winner and the ring presence which contributes a lot in the final decisions at this level.

Bitches   Miss L Koster
I thoroughly enjoyed my days judging at this show, held in the lovely grounds of Harewood House. We were lucky with the weather, up until Limit, when the heavens opened and we had to take cover. I was very pleased with my entry and feel, having judged the dogs in April, that at the moment, the bitches, overall, possess a greater depth of quality. It was a veritable 'chocolate box' that awaited me in the first few classes! There were also some really lovely wholecolour girls spanning the classes. The biggest concern to me was the change in eye colour - it seems that where we should be aiming for the 'dark' chocolate colour, we are accepting the 'milk' chocolate colour and if we keep going down this path we will lose one of the most important attributes of the breed.
I must make reference to the fact that much was said, outside the ring, about the winner of the Puppy class not being clean. Being a stickler for presentation, I can assure those saying this, that, yes, she was a little stained - but was most definitely not dirty! You have to be subjective when judging, and I chose to overlook this 'slight' staining when she possessed everything else I was looking for.
Hughes' Loranka's Star Surprise
Water's Maibee Gentle Touch
Best Puppy
Hazeltine’s Juzandia Sugar Babe
Minor Puppy (23 Entries, 6 Absent) A lovely class - what a super start to the day. Very close decision between the first 3.
1 Hughes’ Loranka's Magic Moments
Very sweet tri of 7 mths. Although not as mature as some in this class, she shows bags of potential. Pretty head with super eye & expression. Appealing size, with proportionate bone. Well-marked coat of good colours and super rich tan everywhere it should be. Movement was very sure footed, holding a clean, crisp outline and carrying her tail correctly.
2 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Empress
More mature blen of the same age as 1. Wearing a heavy jacket of soft, silky texture and rich colour. Attractive head, just lacking a little fill under the eye at present. Moved well with plenty of drive.
3 Sansom’s Byermoor Queens Maid
Res Ballantine’s Middleshott Chloe
VHC Surman’s Vallender Marley
Puppy (20, 6)  
1 Hazeltine’s Juzandia Sugar Babe
Lovely bitch of 10 mths. Ideal size. Richly marked coat with plenty of furnishings for her age. Sweetest of heads, large dark eyes, blackest of pigment and neat foreface. Was lovely to go over and she scored on balance and substance, with just the right amount of bone. Was a little backward in coming forward to start, but improved as the class went on. Moved with style and assurance keeping a firm, level topline. Best Puppy Bitch
2 Attwood’s Clentview Euphoria
Well-marked blen carrying a wealth of coat. Have lots to like, from her refined head with pretty expression, through her well made, compact body to her easy flowing movement. Loved her exuberant, naughty nature.

Res Kerr’s Kinvaar Kinky Boots
VHC Crozier’s Korraines Duty Free
Junior (23, 6)  
1 Shone’s Pamedna Touch of Fan-TC
Well-marked, profusely coated tri fresh from her crowning a few weeks previously. Lovely type, with very elegant outline standing. Looked a picture on the move with all pieces flowing into one another. Excellent neck & shoulder, and good angulation all through. A worthy title holder.
2 Barnard’s Toshini Louisa
Really liked this showy blen. Lovely head, with soft melting expression. Moved smartly with good reach and drive. Bang out of coat here, but should have a bright future with time.

Res Fisk’s Rebhann Argento
VHC Mynott’s Honeybet Just Magic
Yearling (6, 0)  
1 Hill & Webber’s Montcolly Liccy
Another well-marked tri. Absolutely dripping in coat, which was clean and well presented. Loveliest of heads, with the most wonderful eyes, of the correct colour, giving her a soft melting expression. Moved well with real style.
2 Pagan’s Campanards Triple Rose
Richly coloured ruby who is extremely well put together. Super size with bone to compliment. Looked an absolute picture standing, but didn't give her all when on the move.
3 Homes’ Ch Leogem Minuet JW
Res Turnbull’s Middleshott Louise at Peakdowns
VHC Grant’s Granasil Rosy Glow
Novice (18, 3)  
1 Smith & Aldous’ Aranel Starbrite
Ultra feminine little blen with the prettiest of heads. Large, limpid eyes of the correct colour. In beautiful condition. Nice size and substance. Moved and showed very well. Pulled out in last 4 for consideration.
2 Whitfield’s Bevelmount Madelaine
Another lovely blen who had was very close up to 1, but couldn't match her for coat. Clean shape with strong lines. A very happy showgirl who had lots of style.
3 Li’s Avalcier Sakura
Res Perry’s Rosemonde Shuai
VHC Baillie’s Fyrnrose Morwyn Star
Under Graduate (9, 1)  
1 Mynott’s Honeybet Hot Rosie Lee
Shapely tri, in lovely coat, which was attractively marked. Pleasing head, with well set and carried ears. Sound movement coming and going. Holding a firm level topline. Was very taken with her, in the challenge she seemed to dislike being undercover.
2 Whitfield’s Alberica Focus On Red
Nicely made ruby in good coat of a nice colour. Moved well, covering the ground with ease. Nice eye & expression, would prefer a little less length to her muzzle.
3 Goodwin’s Lanola Serafina
Res Li’s Avalcier Liberty
VHC Wilson’s Willow Joella
Graduate (6, 1)  
1 Waters’ Maibee Gentle Touch
Absolutely loved this blen girl - she was just my cup of tea! The most gorgeous head, with huge dark eye, short tapered muzzle and plenty of cushioning, all framed by heavily fringed well placed ears. Plenty of neck on well set shoulders. Short, neat body with plenty of cover. Good hind angulation, short hocks giving plenty of drive. Well set and carried tail. It was a very close decision between her and the CC winner and she literally lost it by a hair - she'd left most of hers in the washtub!! Am sure she will hit the heights with normal luck (and a bit more coat!). RES CC.
2 Paterson’s Phrenchy Pollyanna
Another nice blen of a similar mould to 1. Has real pizzazz and commands attention. Lovely head with the cheekiest of expressions - has a real glint in her eye! Neat, compact body with adequate bone. Move well, keeping a nice outline.
3 Smith’s Beaudale Quite Contrary JW
Res Glen’s Sandbrae Beyond The Blue
VHC Ballantine’s Middleshott Emma ShCM

2 Reaney’s Royalvale Rock Don't Stop
Very attractive b&t in super coat with good rich tan. Lovely type, with very appealing head, large expressive eyes and good pigment. Moved well,a nd shown to advantage. Just a shade longer than 1.
3 Willey & Siddle’s Penemma Prunella
Res Renaud’s Nevhills Nicole for Craigowl
VHC Hazeltine’s Juzandia Chilli Sauce
Mid Limit (11, 2)  
1 Claydon’s Brymarden Moon River JW
This bitch is really on form at the moment. In heavenly coat of rich colour and the correct texture, put down to perfection. Beautiful head and eye with excellent pigmentation. Movement was easy and flowing, but with plenty of drive. Can't really fault her construction, for me, would just like her a size smaller.
2 Inglis’ Craigowl Bilberry
Heavily marked tri of similar size and substance. Not in the best of coats, but was hiding nothing. Lovely clean outline, with good angles all through. Attractive head and eye showing her sweet disposition.
3 Whitfield’s Beauella Kasino at Bevelmount JW
Res Scott’s Toscam Monte Lucia
VHC Smith’s Beaudale Ebony Eyes
Limit (9, 4)  
1 Sansom’s Byermoor Queens English JW
When I judged this bitch at Border Union. I was surprised at how much I liked her then, and still do, very much. She just gets better and better. Today she had the coat she was lacking last time, and her head has also improved. She now has the fill and cushioning that enhances her lovely, soft expression. Neat, firm body, although maybe carrying a little too much condition. Her movement is still exemplary, keeping a clean crisp outline with ideal tail carriage. Pulled her out in my last 4.
2 Costello’s Beauella Kiss This
Really richly coloured blen of a gorgeous type. Lovely size, with good bone and substance. Moved really well with little effort. Just not carrying her tail as well as 1.
3 Pagan’s Kimark Mi Amiga of Sorata
Res Glen’s Sandbrae Rhapsody In Blue
VHC Armitt’s Brasingamen Deep Opal
Open (9, 1)  
1 Hughes’ Loranka's Star Surprise
A lot is said about judges looking upon exhibits of their own breeding more favourably than others. I always think there are 2 ways of interpreting this. Either, if the dog runs true to type then the judge 'should' like it, or the judge could be even harder on the dog, knowing it is of their line. In this instance, I took both viewpoints. I first saw this ruby when she was 12 weeks old and I wanted to buy her then. Not surprisingly her breeder declined!! She has fulfilled all the potential I saw in that 12 week puppy. She has the most glorious head, flat top skull with correctly set, bell shaped ears, framing her head beautifully. Huge eyes, with black halos, neat, tapered muzzle with just enough fill. Clean, straight front giving good reach. Adequate neck on good shoulders, strong, firm back, well sprung rib and neat loin. Superbly angulated hindquarters, with a well-set tail, which was carried attractively. Is so attentive to her handler, can sometimes appear to be a bit 'miserable', but today she pulled out all the stops and showed herself beautifully. Top all this off with a wealth of coat, which was a deep rich red, and I couldn't deny her. It was a pleasure to award her the C.C and with it her crown. I still wish she were mine!!!
2 Goodwin’s Ch Lanola Salsa JW ShCM
Again, I judged this bitch at Border Union and gave her Best Puppy. She has fulfilled all the promise she showed and is now a worthy champion. Everything I said about her then still applies. She has the most correct head and eye, crested neck and good shoulders. Moves true both ways, and was in super coat which was well presented.
