Best Puppy
Vella & Li’s Avalcier Olivier of Cinderlace
Minor Puppy (9 Entries 2 Absent)  
1 Gardiner & Dansage’s Edonhill Blaze Away
Tri-colour with attractive clear marking. Pretty head with broad muzzle, bright tan and dark eye giving soft expression. Good reach of neck and laid back shoulders with good moderate bone. Unsettled to begin with, as were most in this class, but improved as the class went on. Happy temperament.
2 Ireland-Cooke’s Milkeyn Sheer Chance for Charnell
Another exhuberant tri-colour baby. Slightly smaller in size which I preferred but still needs to broaden in fore-face. Rich tan and dark eye, good bone for size. Well constructed and moved with enthusiasm. These two could change places depending on how they develop.
3 Williams’ Johnasta Anton Du Beke
Res Martins’ Lisgarth Kaneval at Clemartill TAF
VHC Roberts’ Komodo Dallas
Puppy (10, 2)  
1 Vella & Li’s Avalcier Olivier of Cinderlace NAF TAF
Lovely Blenheim puppy with masculine head, broad foreface, dark expressive eye and good breadth of skull. Head beautifully framed by large ear leathers. Short coupled body having well rounded rib cage and good angulation both front and rear. Straight silky coat and rich tan , excellently presented. Sound steady movement. My co-judge had no hesitation in agreeing to his being BPIB and we were both delighted to see him go G1 in the Toy Puppy Group.
2 Inglis’ Craigowl Ryton
Attractive tri-colour built on larger lines. Rich tan and dark eye, well constructed with good bone although a little longer cast than my winner. Good lay of shoulder and rear angulation. Very mature for age with already the makings of a straight profuse coat. Very settled on the move.
3 Bull’s Ladash Bramble
Res Lewis’ Jordanic Torri
VHC Barton’s Cheamley Sunny Shoes at Loranka
Junior (15, 3)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Gazpacho
Very richly pigmented Ruby. Good width of foreface and broad skull with black nose and dark expressive eye giving a soft but masculine head. Well constructed of correct size with moderate bone. Soft silky coat, moved well with assurance.
2 Angell’s Charwelton Tate
Well marked Blenheim with a beautifully presented straight silky coat. Broad head with well cushioned muzzle. Straight front, well angulated and short coupled body. Lovely size, with strong hind action. Unlucky to come up against the Ruby which I really fell for.
3 Hughes’ Loranka’s Firestarter
Res Newnes’ Penquite Cinnamon
VHC Tarlton’s Tonmil Flashback to Cream
Yearling (7, 4) Not such a strong class as Junior.
1 Walton’s Underknoll Reality
Nicely marked Blenheim with good typey head. Good pigment, moderate bone, a little long cast. An honest overall type which would be much improved with a little more animation.
2 Tarabad’s Khatibi Eamon High
Well broken Tri-colour with pretty head which still needs to broaden to look more masculine. Rich tan, dark eye. Liked his size, well constructed with short back, shown in good coat, movement OK.
3 Sidery-Smith’s Whisky Galore at Wingspan
Novice (7, 3)  
1 Angell’s Charwelton Tate
See Junior
2 Cox’s Garlouchi Dark Intention for Casimari
Loved this dog for type, strong masculine head , rich tan, round dark eye, broad muzzle and skull. Well constructed with straight front, well angulated in shoulder and hind quarters, short back with well developed spring of rib. Long silky coat on body but lack of feathering on rear legs spoiled the overall picture.
3 Hedger’s Khatibi Tiger Tim at Alrewic
Res Bloice’s Scotlass The Love Bug
Graduate (6, 2)  
1 Hedger’s Khatibi Tiger Tim at Alrewic
Tricolour with masculine head, short broad foreface, bright tan and soft expression. Well broken markings, short coupled body, correct size with good bone, and very good tail carriage.
2 Li’s Avalcier Manhattan
Masculine well coated Blenheim with attractive markings. Plenty of substance with straight front legs, well angulated both on shoulders and stifle. Lovely outline on the move with correct tail carriage and strong driving action. Just preferred the shortness and overall size of the winner.
3 Allitt’s Pamedna Beau Bobby of Tillashby
Res Lunam’s Flossybrook Total Eclipse
Post Graduate (13, 1) This was a difficult class to judge because, although not lacking in quality, there was a tremendous variation in type.
1 Barton’s Chantismere Chippendale at Loranka
Richly pigmented Blenheim with well distributed markings. Attractive masculine head with dark softly expressive eyes, good foreface and broad skull. Well constructed with straight fore-legs and very well angulated. Short back and good deep brisket. Correct size for a toy spaniel but plenty of substance Moved soundly exhibiting happy personality.
2 Coaker’s Titian Puppeteer of Homerbrent
Ruby of immense quality, with gorgeous head. Very soft in expression but still masculine with good breadth of skull, well cushioned muzzle and black pigment. Nice size with well angulated shoulders and turn of stifle. Plenty of substance and spring of rib. Lovely textured coat. A hair-splitting decision but seen in profile just preferred the tailset of the winner.
3 Koster’s Dortmund Take A Chance Harana
Res Owen’s Narayden Kind Of Magic
VHC Cox’s Garlouchi Dark Intention for Casimari
Limit (13, 4)  
1 Claydon’s Brymarden Montana JW
Blenheim with fabulous head. Lovely dark round eyes, nothing hard about this head, just exuding the soft gentle expression one associates with a Cavalier. Nevertheless completely masculine with breadth of foreface and skull. Well constructed with good bone, deep brisket, well rounded ribs, level top-line and well set on tail. Moved well and showed with confidence. Well presented in good coat. RDCC
2 Korn’s Sandusk Monterey JW ShCM
Many of the attributes of my winner except from a smaller mould. Blenheim with good pigment and large dark eye to give soft expression. Well constructed with good lay-back of shoulder and well rounded quarters. Short, straight back with good tail carriage. Moved soundly. Shown in profuse coat.
3 Ackroyd-Gibson’s Acewall Enigma from Toraylac
Res Hughes’ Loranka’s Enchanting
VHC Barraclough’s Ricksbury Royal Revolution of Juettte
Open (7, 0)  
1 Bubb’s Ch Wandris Entertainer JW
Well known Blenheim - so much has been said about this dog that it almost seems superfluous to repeat it but every occasion is different and the dogs judged as seen on the day. The most gentle of heads with large, dark softly expressive eyes Good breadth of skull and nicely cushioned, softly tapering foreface. Good conformation with straight front, good reach of neck well set onto angulated shoulders. Straight topline, good spring of rib with good depth and well rounded quarters. I felt that although my First in Limit and Second in Open were very close up Entertainer had a slight edge in head qualities and the assured manner in which he carried himself with his head held high and lovely tail carriage. DCC. My co-judge agreed amicably that he was to be our BOB
2 Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymrey Hi Command JW
Blenheim shown in profuse coat in beautiful condition very soft and silky to the touch. Lovely masculine head with dark eye and nose pigment Excellent reach of neck and lay of shoulder, good ribcage and well angulated quarters. Moved soundly and with great vivacity. Possibly his extrovert personality is his downfall because he will not allow himself to settle sufficiently to allow the judge to really appreciate his attributes. Such a handful but nevertheless a dog of great quality.

Bitches Mr A Wood
My thanks to the committee of SWKA for the invitation to judge this breed for the first time, and for their friendship & hospitality over many years. Never did I imagine in 1982 when my wife and I chose our first Cavalier bitch that I would have the privilege to give an opinion on those entered for this prestigious show.
I had deliberately not watched the judging of bitches, nor read reports, for nearly two years. Consequently most of the dogs were totally new to me. The final line-up was very pleasing to my eye and all were good examples of the breed. Apparently the CC winner had created a record for the youngest bitch champion - a lovely specimen of the breed whose overall quality stood away. My congratulations.
Sadly, I had to withhold 3rd in Open for lack of merit; mere attendance in a small class is not sufficient to warrant such a major award.
It was very sad that the judge of dogs, Mrs. Barbara Spencer, had passed away before her appointment. We bought a pretty blenheim bitch from her many years ago and I was very much looking forward to seeing her again. Substitute judge Mrs. Mochrie and I were in full agreement that her CC winner with a majestic coat and her dog puppy winner should go forward. Both were outstanding on the day and acquitted themselves well in the Toy Group, the dog puppy taking the Toy Puppy Group.
I was surprised at the number and size of umbilical hernias - a problem to be minimised by selective breeding in the future - but did not penalise those affected. Those with incorrect bites did lose places. Spring of rib and true hind movement are two parts of the breed standard which contribute to long-term health and activity in old age. I kept these points in mind. There were a number of bitches heavily-marked on the body but one cannot overlook what is underneath the cosmetic fault. There was tremendous variety in type and construction. Analysis shows that most placed dogs were by different successful showdogs yet displayed similar positive traits, so it does pay to use the best.
Fox-Shone's Pamedna Touch of Fan-TC
Li's Avalcier Liberty
Best Puppy
Kerr's Kinvaar Kinky Boots
Minor Puppy (26 Entries, 4 Absent)  
1 Butler’s Tamyse Trilby
Very pretty correctly-sized tri with a lovely expression helped by the eyes and cushioned muzzle, although still to fully fill out under the eyes. Head held on a lovely neckline fitting into the shoulders well with a level topline. Heavily-marked but with a redeeming white collar on her silky coat. Length of body in balance with height at withers. Moved very firmly both ways with a driving action thanks to a good turn of stifle. Happy as the standard requires.
2 Inglis’ Craigowl Norah Batty
Another classy tri, but with a slightly longer muzzle. Picture-postcard well-broken markings on head and body with good tan marking. Dark brown eyes contributed to the gentle picture before me. Balanced outline with a level topline. Slightly larger and taller than 1 and with more bone but still an acceptable size. Moved well both ways with exuberance. Beat the lovely baby blenheim in third place on maturity.
3 William’s Clentview Miss Dior Sancana
Res William’s Johnasta Dance’N’Lilia
VHC Koster’s Harana Minogue
Puppy (18, 6)  
1 Kerr’s Kinvaar Kinky Boots
Yet another beautiful tri with a head to swoon over with a full eye and well-filled muzzle. (I did pass over a number of pretty puppies with a tendency to snipeyness or deep stop). Long ear fringes framed the head. Adequately broken coat with plenty of feathering. A picture standing with level topline and well-turned stifles. Moved well both ways. Best bitch puppy. Slightly longer cast than best puppy dog and not so forward but a very nice bitch nonetheless.
2 Nightingale’s Headra’s Amazing Thoughts for Jongeo
Lovely head and markings. Nicely filled in the muzzle and with a good eye. Well-balanced shape with level topline, slightly higher on the leg than 1. Good coat. Grand stifle with moderate bone all round. Not putting it all in today.
3 Attwood’s Clentview Euphoria
Res Norris’ Criscan Inquisitive
VHC Stokes’ Toshina Sasha for Scouriemore
Junior (13, 4)  
1 Fox-Shone’s Pamedna Touch of Fan-TC
Immaculate tri with tremendous class. Absolutely beautiful from top to toe. Markings clearly defined as if painted on, with rich tan. Excellent pigment. Good coat condition with adequate feathering. Well balanced in construction, nothing exaggerated and looked a picture standing. Moved true with plenty of width behind. Made a beautiful and informative picture moving, once the owner appreciated that a triangle is not round. No hesitation in awarding the CC to such a young bitch.
2 Li’s Avalcier Liberty
Another outstanding young bitch, a Blenheim with beautifully marked head and body with a white collar and plenty of feathering. eyes and ears. Good construction and level topline. Made to overstretch on standing which affected her outline. A good mover both ways. RCC.
3 Koster’s Harana Dancing Queen
Res Mynott’s Honeybet Just Magic
VHC Brewer & Moody’s Bowfort Petalina Polly
Yearling (12, 2)  
1 Blackburn’s Bekenveldt Waltzin Matilda
The blenheim bitch with the most melting expression on the day. Apparently I gave her beautiful dam BOB in the past. Gorgeous eyes. Good pigment plus well-broken markings contributed to her beauty. Crested neck and level topline. Moderate bone. Showed well and moved well in front but could not match the CC winner in hind movement
2 Walton’s Underknoll J’Adore
A bitch for whom I had a great deal of admiration as a puppy. So pleased that she has matured well. Similar stamp to 1 with lovely eyes and dark pigment but not showing quite as well. Well-marked coat but needs a little more attention on show day. Level topline and a nice size. I'm sure she'll improve.
3 Bartlett’s Korolevsky Zviozhdochka JW
Res Kenny’s Harana China Girl with Jualamart
VHC Hill & Webber’s Montcolly Liccy
Novice (9, 6)  
1 Pembridge’s Wainlodes Betsy May
Tri with typical head and eye with good pigment and tan. Well marked about the head. Heavily marked on body but with a broad white collar. Plenty of feathering. Kept a level topline and moved well. Ideal size. A little more spring in rib would finish her but time is on her side.
2 Bull’s Ladash Bryony
Pretty blenheim head with a nice expression. Lightly-marked body. Moved well behind. Puppy who needs building up and more training and road walking to get the best from her.
3 Firth’s Salegreen Busy Lizzie
Graduate (12, 2)  
1 Wheeler’s Homerbrent Bliss
Blenheim with very attractive head markings and a good eye. Excellent pigment. Ears could have set a little higher. A nice size and well-broken in coat. Good in front and moved well both ways with a well-turned stifle. Showed well.
2 Waters’ Maibee Gentle Touch
Blenheim with lovely head, eye, ear feathers and pigment but needs time to flatten a touch. True Toy spaniel yet with good bone. Heavily marked which is less attractive to me on a blenheim. Moved OK but without real enthusiasm.
3 Boardman’s Volney April Love
Res Pembridge’s Wainlodes Betsy May
VHC Stevenson’s Cleyside Kaths Choice
Post Graduate (20, 7)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Sarah
Had to reward this lovely B/T with the correct stop and muzzle, plus large round eyes and long ear feathers. Well balanced in front, body and hind construction with a good turn of stifle allowing her to move easily. Ideal size.
2 Butler’s Tamyse Delecia JW
A lovely Blenheim head with all in balance. Noted the appealing eye and correct earset. Ideal size with well-broken coat. Nicely made all through and showed well.
3 Stevenson’s Cleyside Kaths Choice
Res Inglis’ Craigowl Bilberry
VHC Mynott’s Honeybet Hot Rosie Lee
Limit (19, 6)  
1 William’s Kinvaar Knowing Johnasta
Another appealing Blenheim head which was nicely marked. Ideal size with a flowing but flyaway coat covering moderate bone and well-sprung ribs. Won on compactness of loin plus a good tailset. Good turn of stifle allowed her to flow over the ground. Showed as well as any and just missed a top award
2 Claydon’s Brymarden Moon River JW
Beautifully put down with her outstanding silky Blenheim coat. Nice in head with large eyes, long ear feathers and dark pigments. Moderate bone. Heavily-marked in body. Good turn of stifle. Not moving as smoothly as 1.
3 Gill’s Florindale Wood Opal
Res Shail’s Rossbonny Molly Malone
VHC Tarlton’s Wightisle Rag Doll for Tonmil
Open (7, 4)  
1 Hughes’ Ch Loranka’s Celebration Time
Lovely head, with dark eyes and long ear feathers. Coat well-broken with crested neckline and level topline leading into a flowing feathered tail. Good turn of stifle with moderate bone. Moved well. A beautiful bitch but in the final reckoning she was stacked with an exaggerated hind forcing her into a straight front, Boxer-style, which ruined her outline.
2 Flynn & Lucas’ Alberica Midnight Velvet
Tri with many good head qualities including long ear feathers. Good bone but a little down on her pasterns. Nice shape of body with a heavily-marked coat. Moved and showed well.
