Dogs. Mrs M Fox-Shone
Given my recent personal circumstances, this was always going to be a difficult show for me to judge.  However, mum would not have wanted me to stand down from my first Championship Club Show appointment.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind words, cards and flowers at this difficult time, they really did help. I would also like to thank the committee for organising a lovely day.  It was such an honour and a thrill to be invited to judge my first Breed Club Show.  Thanks also to my stewards who kept things moving so smoothly and lastly but most important to the exhibitors for their support. I had some lovely dogs and was very pleased with my final line-up and chose 6 for the final cut.  My eventual winner stole my heart on the day, being of lovely breed type and totally stunning on the move.  It was a pleasure to judge with a long time Irish friend Geoffrey Porter.  We both agreed on the Dog Beauella Radzinski for BIS, the Bitch Montcolly Liccy RBIS, the Minor Puppy Dog Ricksbury Royal Tradition BPIS and the Veteran Dog Ch Daraste Reflection Of Love BVIS.

Veteran (6 Entries, 1 Absent)  
1 Lewis’ Ch. Daraste Reflection Of Love
Richly marked blenheim Champion looking fabulous today.  Lovely for type, soft expression, presented in lovely gleaming condition.  Strode around the ring like a youngster, moving soundly and freely.  Short-listed in the last 6 for CC. BVIS
2 Bloomfield’s Oaklake One More Tri
Lovely tri, full of himself.  So sparkling denying his age.  Lovely size and nicely balanced.  Showed well and beautifully presented.
3 Randell & Irvine’s Shenlyn December Digby
Minor Puppy (20, 7)  
1 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Tradition
Very promising richly marked, well broken blenheim.  Lovely size and well balanced.  Ample bone and coat coming nicely.  Just right for his age.  Loved his type.  Generous head and expressive dark eyes with an air of mischief.  Quite naughty at times but when settled showed his attributes off well and moved well.  Still very much a baby but should finish well and is potentially an exciting youngster to watch for.  I loved his mother, gave her a CC and his father is proving such a wonderful stud dog.  Won this class with ease. BPD, BPIS
2 Water’s Maibee Buzz Lightyear (NAF)
Not quite as mature as 1.  Nicely marked tri, good head properties.  Lovely for type.  A very happy boy.  Liked his shape and size.  Moved well when settled.  Another puppy, which should finish well.
3 French’s Lirren Let’s Go Golden
Puppy (11, 1)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Bonanza
10 month attractive, well balanced, nicely sized Black & Tan.  He is a lovely type and has a nice expression.  Nice soft eye and rich tan.  Excellent topline and moved and showed beautifully.  Well presented and should finish well.
2 Barnard’s Toshini Martino
Thought this would be my winner and pushed 1 hard.  Nice type, flashy marked blenheim in lovely coat and condition.  Good for type and a tad shorter coupled than 1.  Shoulders slightly upright which causes him to lose his topline on the move, which lost him the top spot.
3 Water’s Maibee Syndney (NAF)
Junior (13, 3)  
1 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Valour
Another top draw exhibit from this kennel.  Richly marked blenheim youngster, which is excellent for balance and shape.  Lovely reach of neck and good topline.  Handsome head and lovely dark expressive eyes.  His head in my opinion still needs a little more time and maturity.  Moved well and has lots of quality.  Should finish well and on another day challenge the best for top honours.  Presented beautifully.
2 Name Withheld Name Withheld
11 month well marked, rich chestnut blenheim.  Slight larger all over than 1.  Perfectly sound, balanced dog which moved effortlessly.  His head is a little heavy for me at the moment, but has lots of time and could fine down a little when he matures.  He excels on the move and was handled expertly as is the norm from this kennel.  A quality dog.
3 Williams’ Johnasta Anton-Du-Beke
Yearling (11, 2)  
1 Jones’ Timsar Mister Moonlighter
Easy winner in this yearling class.  Cracking blenheim youngster who as the saying goes was “ever-so naughty, but ever-so nice”!  Loved his body shape, ideally sized and nicely balanced.  Although heavily marked this did not detract form his lovely outline, good reach of neck, nice short loin and good spring of rib.  Moved effortlessly with a level topline and correct tail carriage.  His head is dreamy and his best is yet to come.  As a younger dog he went through a “plainer” stage but the essentials were always there and what is more he is still maturing.  A lovely exhibit for overall type and soundness and with a little more maturity will compete for top honours.  RCC
2 Hawes’ Kersmere Rhapsody
Pretty, glamorous well broken blenheim which was lovely for size and shape.  Shown in good coat and beautifully presented.  Appealing head and eye.  Gentle expression.  Moved well with good topline and correct tail carriage.
3 Inglis’ Craigowl Wylam
Novice (9, 2)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Gazpacho
Easy winner in this class.  Quality Ruby, which was good for type.  Generous head and soft expression.  Ideally sized and nicely balanced.  Lovely temperament.  Just loses his topline on the move.  Well presented
2 Towse’s Miletree Jambo
Smaller richly marked blenheim of nice type.  Typical expression.  Moved well, but there was just not enough of him for me.  Well deserved his placing.
3 Pagan’s Sorata Bob Marley
Graduate (8, 2)  
1 Levy & Sedgewick’s Pascavale Alfie JW
Neat little dog of quality.  Appealing head and expression.  Nicely sized of good shape.  Moved soundly and effortlessly.  Presented in lovely shiny coat.  Looked very good on the move.   Just lacks maturity to compete for top honours.
2 Town’s Barsac Sadler’s Wells
Pushed 1 hard, but preferred neatness and fluid movement of 1.  Glamorous Tri, nicely marked, adorable temperament.  Handsome head and sparkling expression.  Coat not at its best here today and he was a little unsettled on the move.
3 Boyd & Carter’s Kinvaar Addict
Post Graduate (10, 1)  Very varied class for type!
1 Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Jamie JW
Smart blenheim.  Lovely size shown in immaculate condition.  Of nice type and endearing expression.  Moved and showed well.  Just needs more finish to complete the picture.
2 Gilbert’s Toshini Benito At Charverale
Nice type but slightly longer cast than 1.  Well broken, very glamorous.  Moved and showed well.  Nose pigment slightly off today and a little more attention to presentation required.  A quality dog never-the-less.
3 Li’s Avalcier Manhattan JW
Special Mid Limit Blenheim or Tricolour (10, 1) A difficult class to judge.
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Ryton
Won on soundness and fluid movement.  I was surprised how much I like this boy on closer inspection.  Attractive, handsome head which still needs more time.  Lovely dark eye and nice expression.  Heavily coated Tri with rich tan, but the coat was not at its best here today.  Ideally sized, balanced and looked beautiful in profile on the move.  Happy temperament.  Deservedly short-listed in my final 6
2 Levy & Sedgewick’s Pascavale Bruce
Tricolour, prettier type and smaller than 1.  Lovely expression and temperament.  Moved ok.  Nicely presented but personally I would have preferred more of him.
3 Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymrey Hi Class
Special Mid Limit Black & Tan or Ruby (11, 0)  
1 Rogerson’s Rabymar Apollo
Lovely sized B&T.  Good on the move.  Tan a little dark.  Nicely balanced and showed well.  Kind expression.  Nice full head.  Well presented.
2 Shinnick’s Leelyn Kameron
Lovely headed B&T with good expression.  A shade larger cast and not so sound on the move as 1, but a quality exhibit.  Lovely big eyes.  Coat needed a little more attention
3 Lewis’ Leelyn Bumble For Carleeto
Limit (10, 0) Best Class of the Day.
1 Costello’s Beauella Radzinski JW
Top class richly marked blenheim dog shown in superb condition and beautiful coat.  Have always admired him and today he pulled out all the stops.  Ideally sized, beautiful make and shape, excellent shoulders, lovely spring of rib, lovely short strong loin and strong hindquarters.  He has a lovely head and tail carriage and keeps a good level topline.  His construction is copybook and he is of classic type.  All male, but with the softest of expressions and soundest temperament.  His movement was fluid, free flowing and absolutely sound.  He excelled on the move and the more he moved, the more he won my heart.  I had no hesitation in awarding him his 2nd CC and with my co-judges full agreement BIS. CC & BIS
2 Angell’s Charwelton Tate JW
Another top class richly marked blenheim boy.  Not the maturity of 1.  He has plenty of time to mature.  Short coupled, good sound movement.  Beautifully presented.  Good head properties with a nice expression.  Will no doubt challenge for top honours.
3 Coaker’s Kinevor Curtis Of Homerbrent JW ShCM
Open (11, 3)  
1 Baker & Park’s Ch. Keyingham Branwell
What can I say about this top-winning dog?  He is a beautiful example of the breed with a fabulous temperament.  He moved with grace and style and is always beautifully presented.  He is deservedly every inch a Champion and was short-listed in my final 6.
2 Coaker’s Titian Puppeteer At Homerbrent JW ShCM
Best wholecolour of the entry.  Beautiful ruby boy of excellent type.  Lovely head, huge, dark round eyes and excellent pigment, loved his expression and type.  Ideal size and nice shape.  Moved well and beautifully presented as one would expect from this kennel.  Unlucky to be up against 1.
3 Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymery Hi Command
Special Open Bred By Exhibitor (5, 1)  
1 Bubb’s Ch. Wandris Entertainer JW
Another top-winning Champion. Suffice to say he is also a beautiful example of the breed with a fabulous temperament.  He is balanced and sound and moved with purpose and style.  Beautifully presented.  He is also every inch a Champion.  Again he was on my short-listed in my final 6, but I preferred the crisper, cleaner and sharper finish of my CC and RCC winners.
2 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Escape
Another top quality exhibit of good shape and make.  Nicely balanced and showed and moved well. 
3 Crane’s Cranvarl Royal Clansman

Bitches Mr G Porter
I would like to thank the committee of the above Club for the hospitality extended to me throughout the day and the exhibitors for the splendid entry. It was particularly pleasing to be invited to judge at this show, as it is the only Breed Club show in the UK that I have never managed to attend. I would also like to say a special thanks to Des and Carol Jenkins my very helpful stewards who did their best to keep me on the straight and narrow throughout the day.
Not having been active in the ring for a couple of years the vast majority of bitches I was seeing for the first time and this made the day all the more satisfying. I was very impressed with the standard throughout the entry, particularly the quality in depth in the early classes and this must auger very well for the future. I deliberately made large cuts as there were so many displaying good breed type, quite a few of which had to leave the ring cardless and will surely be in the reckoning on another day.
I was looking for a balanced outline with pleasing conformation and elegance, true breed type and an added touch of glamour in coat and condition and was delighted that my principal winners met all these requirements with a little something extra. One small gripe was the number of bitches, even in the puppy classes with dirty teeth, surely a quick brush as part of the show preparation would not be out of the question.
Finally, I am sure our thoughts and sympathy on the day were with my co-judge, Maxine Fox-Shone who courageously fulfilled her engagement despite having just buried her mother.  DCC & BIS Beauella Radzinski JW, BCC & RBIS Montcolly Liccy, BPIS Ricksbury Royal Tradition.

Best Puppy Rix & Berry's Ricksbury Cosmopolitan
     
Veteran (9 entries)  
1 Wheeler’s Sharonaz Melody of Drumhaye
This 9 years Blen was in very good form, full of glamour and type. Sweet soulful expression with the largest dark rimmed eyes, excellent pigment, coat in very good order with excellent featherings and long ears framing her gentle head and a little frosting on her muzzle just added to her appeal. Showed and moved happily, unlucky not to have gained her title.
2 Towses’ Miletree Bedtime Story
A real Toy Spaniel looking much younger than her 11 years. Heavy blanketed with a really deep chestnut. Her head and eyes appealed instantly, well made compact body and ideal bone for her size, moved out really well presenting a balanced outline, a credit to her breeders.
3 Glens’ Sandbrae Atomic Blue
This pretty B&T carries her 9 years lightly as Wholecolours often seem to do. Sweet expression from large dark eyes, correct bright tans in all the correct places, another moving out freely on a loose lead.
Minor Puppy (29)  
1 Martin’s Ttitian Luisette
This little Ruby of 8 months appealed instantly for shape balance and carriage. I liked her front assembly with well laid back shoulders leading to a level top line and good turn of stifle. Pretty immature head so typical of this colour at this age, dark eyes and pigment, shows promise of a good coat, one we will hear more of I am sure.
2 Attwood’s Clentview Paris
Extremely pretty well broken Blen complete with a large lozenge. She has a melting expression, with large dark eyes, a coal black nose and the correct length of muzzle. Shapely body with the promise of a good coat, well schooled and moved freely, will change places with 1 on another occasion.
3 Rennard’s Deranmar Francesca
Another very richly marked puppy with everything to like, ideal size and type, pretty expression and eyes, head developing well which was immature as it should be at this age. A happy little bitch moving freely on a loose lead and well schooled as this exhibitor’s dogs always are.
Puppy (26)  
1 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Cosmopolitan
Heavily marked richly pigmented blen with the most gorgeous head with huge eyes, which were full round and dark with black rims and just seemed to fill her face. Neatly proportioned in body with adequate neck and round bone. Moved well displaying good hindquarters, short lower pasterns and a well set and carried tail. An exceedingly pretty type that won BPB on maturity.
2 Hindles’ Ricksbury Venus
Splitting hairs here and now I know why, they are litter sisters! Hence all the same comments apply. Correct body shape, slightly better broken coat markings than her sister perhaps, heads you win, will change places on another day I am sure, a lovely pair
3 Lewis’ Tomnil Crème Evita with Daraste
Slightly larger type with the most glorious eyes set in a really pretty typical head with a gently cushioned muzzle. Her movement and showmanship were ideal, now just needs to body up and drop into her frame, should make a very good junior bitch.
Junior (23)  
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Norah Batty
Very attractive compact stylish tri with plenty of substance and bone for her size. Short level back, well angulated hindquarters with good tailset and carriage. Her coat was well marked with rich tans, charming head with dark eyes, long ears fringes. A spirited sound mover who was attentive to her handler at all times.
2 Taylor’s Rosscrea Summertime
Blen built on very similar lines to 1, having a short deep body with all the necessary angles. She has a really pretty head and eyes, long ears and plenty of coat of a pleasing rich colour. Another happy sound mover with an ever- wagging tail, -close up to the winner.
3 Lymer & Scheidt’s Volney Chardonnay
Slighter larger blen just fresh from the puppy classes but able to cope well with this competition. She is very well made all through with a good neck and shoulders, level top line and a well-set and carried tail. Very typical in head with a soft gentle expression, lots of coat and finish for her age, which just gave her the edge over 4, Lanola Move over Darling.
Yearling (25) Yet another hotly contested class
1 Kerr’s Kinvaar Kinky Boots
Another fabulous little tri with so much appeal. She is full of style and breed type, excelling in neck and shoulders accentuated by a large white collar, every part just blends together added to which she is a convincing mover looking good from any angle. Sweet feminine head with dark eyes, richest tans- with maturity surely one for the future.
2 Barnard’s Toshini Louisa
My notes say, a Blen full of breed type and quality. Most lovely soft gentle expression with a soft cushioned muzzle and long full ears that framed her head. Short deep body well proportioned, moved truly both ways, there’s very little I would change about her, not surprised to read later that she is already a CC winner, should make up.
3 Jones’ Timsar Miss B’Witchin
Heavily marked Blen of a very deep chestnut colour and hard to beat for head and type as her expression eyes and pigment are copybook and would have been hard to match today. Unfortunately she was not concentrating on the job in hand on the move and gave her handler a hard time, a daughter of one of my favourites Mischief, if she gets her act together she could go to the top.
Novice (16)  
1 Maclaine’s Lochbuie Geordie
Stunning richly marked Blen who has the wow factor for me as I noticed her coming into the ring and on closer inspection she lived up to my initial impression. She is an ideal size with that lovely combination of substance and elegance, super bone and shape, clean shoulder line. She has the most melting expression, large dark eyes, jet pigment and a softly cushioned muzzle all framed with long ears. On the move she could be a bit of a “wild child” at times but this just added to her appeal and once settled she displayed all her virtues, surely with ordinary luck a CH in the making, pressed the CC winner all the way, this Geordie lass will do for me RCC
2 Bubb’s Wandris Matinee
Profusely coated bitch of a very pleasing overall type, pretty head and eyes, which were particularly large and lustrous. She has a good body shape with well -sprung ribs, which, with her abundance of coat can disguise her good conformation. Moved out soundly with good tail action at one with her handler.
3 Towse’s Miletree Bedtime Wish
Small very richly marked girl, very neat and compact in shape, pleasing for make and shape and very typical of her breeding. Pretty head eyes and expression, moved well, just a little sleek in coat compared to the winners.
Graduate (13)  
1 Whitfield’s Alberica Focus on Red
This is a really appealing ruby presenting a most attractive outline whether standing or on the move and she is an ideal size. I particularly liked her level top line, good length of upper arm and perfectly set tail and a most typical feminine head and expression with dark eyes and pigment. A little between coats on the day but this is only temporary - I liked her.
2 Water’s Maibee Disenchanted
This Blen is a real Toy Spaniel full of breed type and a most sweet gentle head, typical of her breeding. Very compact in body with lovely bone for her size, active sound mover that could carry a little more coat.
3 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Empress
Blen excelling in expression and displaying true breed type from her large dark eyes, dark pigment and gently cushioned muzzle, richly heavily marked coat, sound mover just slightly less compact than above.
Post Graduate (21)  
1 Darley’s Kaidee My Angel
Ultra typy Blen with a really balanced outline She has a most appealing head with the softest of expressions enhanced by her large dark eyes  Her conformation and movement were spot on with correct tail action , well broken deep chestnut markings on a pearly white background.
2 Pagan’s Kimark Mi Amiga of Sorata
Sweet headed Ruby of ideal balance and type, richest coat colour with dense pigmentation and eye colour, correct size, excellent topline and tail carriage, presented in very good coat and condition, maybe could project herself a little more, that said, I liked her a lot.
3 Li’s Avalcier Liberty
Very typical Blen with everything to like and built on classy lines. Her coat was well broken with rich deep markings, needing just a little more of it. Soft feminine expression, lovely eyes and pigment, moved truly both ways.
Special Mid Limit  Blenheim or Tricolour (8)  
1 Hill & Webber’s Montcolly Liccy
Fabulous tri with a breathtakingly beautiful head, ranking easily among the best I have seen in this colour, how could you fail not to appreciate her? Huge limpid dark eyes giving the softest of expressions, correct length of muzzle with just the right amount of cushioning, flat top of head framed with the longest ear fringes. Her outline and shape were pleasing to the eye with correct front assembly and shoulders well angulated following through to well-muscled hindquarters. She moved effortlessly round the ring with a gentle wagging tail at one with her handler. To top it all her coat shone like spun silk with an ideal distribution of colours with the richest tans, an object lesson in presentation; a truly memorable bitch in probably the most difficult colour, CC, I believe her 3rd, well done
2 Moulden’s Forever Romance of Whitecroft
I judged this beautifully marked Tri at her first show at 6 months and considered her something special then and was so pleased to see that she fulfilled that early promise, because what you see is what you get. She is so correctly made all through, with a soft generous head and her coat clarity is just ideal. At rising 5 she could not quite match 1 for condition today, that said, I still consider her a top- notch bitch.
3 Lovell’s Craigowl Vivienne at Lovetrac
The third Tri in this class lots to like about this one too as she has such a sweet head and expression, very well broken markings and rich tans. She moved happily and was presented in good coat and showed to advantage, just looked a little immature compared to the above.
Special Mid Limit B&T or Ruby (19) A strong class
1 Whitfield’s Alberica Focus on Red
See Graduate
2 Glen’s Sandbrae Beyond the Blue
This B&T was of a similar size and type to 1 with much to admire. She has a sweet expression with large dark eyes, rich tan markings and long ears framing her face. Good shoulder placement and reach of neck, moved soundly on a loose lead, a very appealing bitch.
3 Pagan’s Campanards Triple Rose at Sorata
This Ruby is a glorious rich colour with much to like but is slightly lower set than the 2 above. Ideal bone for her size, level back, dense eye and nose pigment pretty head type with fabulous long ears. She made the most of herself on the move with good drive from behind and correct tail action.
Limit (13)  
1 Waters’ Maibee Gentle Touch
Glorious headed bitch full of breed type, her face and eyes alone will take her far and all framed by the longest ears. Super bone and substance coupled with pleasing angulation allowing her to move freely with a slight crest to her neck permitting good head carriage. Today she was rather short of coat, but a worthy Ch in the final shortlist.
2 Aldous & Smith’s Aranel Electra
Ultra feminine Blen who is totally devoid of exaggeration in any department. Her head is totally classic with just the right amount of fill under her large dark eyes, stylish outline with a clean neck and shoulders and a firm level back leading to a well set tail. In very good coat and condition, a very hard decision between these 2 today which I may well have reversed on another day
3 Boardman’s Volney April Love
Another mature Blen of true breed type with a fabulous head and eyes, dark nose and eye pigment, complete with a spot. Presented in really good coat, mature in body, moving freely for her handler, possibly carrying some extra weight over her shoulders today, 3 lovely bitches.
Open (6)  
1 Homes’ Ch Leogem Minuet
Very stylish richly marked Blen presenting a lovely outline in profile- excels in neck and shoulders, level back and a well set tail. She really covers the ground with ease totally in tune with her handler. Most attractive head and expression, dark well spaced eyes, a worthy Ch short listed to the last few for the CC
2 Taylor’s Rosscrea Yours Truly
Very neat Blen displaying true breed type, excellent proportions and lots of bone for her size, well angulated hindquarters allowing good driving movement, correct lay back of shoulder. Sweet gentle expression-one for the future.
3 Taylor’s Florindale Touch of Black for Kemble
Very smart B&T with a very typical outlook, particularly large lustrous eyes set in a very pretty face. She has a flowing outline with all parts fitting together really well, her presentation was first rate and her coat was in very good order, raven black with rich tans.
Special Open Bred by Exhibitor (5)  
1 Bloomfield’s Oaklake Debbie Harry
This is a very neat blen with an ideal body shape with a good neck and shoulders. She has a sweet attentive expression, dark eyes and good earset. A very showy bitch whose ever wagging tail and sound movement were a joy to watch.
2 Mynott’s Honey bet Hot Rosy Lee
Beautifully marked Tri of a lovely size and type with great clarity of markings and rich tans. As sound as a bell on the move with a short level back and a good tail set. Pretty head and eyes, a fraction deep in stop for my taste, but a lovely type overall.
3 Glen’s Sandbrae Rhapsody in Blue
Smart B&T of a similar size to above, plenty of coat and featherings with bright tan markings. Moved freely in both directions with her head held high, just preferred the toplines of above.
