Dogs. Mr G Porter
Thank you to the Secretary, Mary Rees, and the committee of the Midland Club for the hospitality I received over the weekend. The trademark of this Club seems to be attention to detail and today was no exception. I would also like to thank committee members Richard Cornaby and Pam Graver my most helpful stewards for their assistance throughout the day.
It is always an added bonus to judge at a Breed Club show not least because of the generous classification and large spacious rings allowing the dogs plenty of room to show to advantage. I had pondered about this appointment for some time wondering if there would be any up and coming stars to take the major awards or whether some of the established winners in the breed, if present, would come out on top. In the event, I found nothing I preferred more to Ch Wandris Entertainer who at 5 years old still looked as majestic as ever having lost none of his enthusiasm for the job in hand, was looking, as a principal winner should be in my opinion, in top form and was presented in wonderful coat and show condition.

Best Puppy Rhodes' Cinderlace Monte for Calonlan
Veteran (12 Entries 5 Absent)  
1 Lewis’ Ch Daraste Reflection of Love
This handsome Blenheim who is rising 8 can still compete with the best of them moving at one with his handler An upstanding dog in wonderful coat and condition, glorious head and eyes with long well feathered ears. I actually intended to shortlist him for the CC but his owner misheard and left the ring. My co-judge was equally as enthusiastic about him commenting on his timeless classic breed type. Best Veteran.
2 Hughes’ Ch Loranka's Celebration
Another classic Blen built on a slightly smaller mould, richly pigmented in coat and eye with rich well broken markings. He has the true gentle head and dark expressive eyes, is well made all through and moved freely here, it’s easy to understand why he won so many CC’s in his younger days, a dog to be proud of.
3 Koster’s Harana Sinatra
Res Tarlton’s Tomnil Cream Of The Glen
VHC Lunam’s Nustoal Red Baron
Minor Puppy (25, 6)  
1 Rhodes’ Cinderlace Monte for Calonlan
A forward puppy of nearly 9 months. Ideal for size and substance with really good round bone, delightful head and expression with large dark eyes and dense pigment.He presented a very pleasing outline, rich coat markings complete with a spot, good top line and tailset, moving and showing happily very promising BPD
2 Li’s Avalcier Nemesis
A very sound well-broken Blen of an ideal size with lots of substance and a very thick well textured coat. He has a very good neck and shoulders with a clean outline and correct rear angulation allowing him to move freely. Attractive head and eyes which just need some more fill underneath, however, at just 8½ months he has plenty of time, I liked him in this good class.
3 Claydon’s Brymarden Johnny Walker
Res Vella’s Cinderlace Bramble
VHC MacAlpine’s Blairburn Bracken with Annatika
Puppy (18, 3)  
1 Hughes’ Loranka’s Just Like Heaven
Blen of the correct size and very good for breed type. He is shapely in body with a good lay of shoulder; short level back good turn of stifle allowing him to move with ease. Very typical in head and expression with particularly large dark eyes, a very promising puppy.
2 Name Withheld Name Withheld
A quality young tri with well-broken markings and plenty of rich tans in all the right places. His head is very typical and just right for his age, dark eyes, beautifully coated and conditioned moved positively with good tail carriage.
3 Inglis’ Craigowl Crusoe
Res Blackburn’s Bekenvelt Serge Diaghilev
VHC Biggs’ Kellorian Head Over Heels
Junior (18, 0) A very competitive class I liked all those placed and a few that made the cut
1 Rix & Berry’s Ricksbury Royal Tradition
A very exciting young dog that I judged earlier this year at the Eastern where he was BPIB. Beautifully balanced with all the correct angles and a short level back. His head is so appealing with his huge lustrous dark eyes blackest pigment and gently cushioned muzzle. His movement and showmanship added to his appeal, as did his profuse long richly marked coat. Deservedly short listed in the challenge, reminded me very much of a young “Entertainer” his half brother, give him a few months and look out.
2 Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymrey Hi Performance
Another richly marked one who like 1 is not a tiny but is beautifully balanced and has the same pleasing outline. I loved his get up and go attitude really covering the ground on the move. He displays correct conformation and his head type while appealing, is less developed at present but he too as all the essentials.
3 Boardman’s Volney Bonanza
Res Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Stagehand
VHC Morgan’s Sohanastar Pure Fantasy
Yearling (9, 0)  
1 Hubbard’s Popolulu Dazzling Dempster JW
A very well made dog that is difficult to fault in conformation being balanced with the correct amount of leg. He has a very pleasant head and expression with a gently tapered muzzle, moved very freely here, just needs some more coat to complete the picture.
2 Barraclough’s Juette New Tricks
A different type of Blen with many breed attributes a well made dog with a profuse silky coat in good order. Head needs a little more time, good pigment and eyes. He moves really freely and covers the ground with gusto and can be quite a handful.
3 Evans’ Ttitian Chocolatier for Svena
Res Rogerson’s Rabymar Courageous Heart
VHC Wiggins’ Whyteplace Alonso
Novice (30, 5)  
1 Banks’ Duty Free of Choya
A forward young Tri whose striking markings cannot fail but catch the eye as he has such clarity and definition of colouring with good tans. Handsome head type, dark eyes, really good neck and shoulders, correct round bone and a firm level top line He has already made quite a name for himself and I am sure with his soundness type and style he will go to the top – a clear winner here.
2 Singleton’s Celxo Ringo Star
A smaller B & T with a straight silky coat and displaying very good breed type. He has a level top line good lay back of shoulder combined with good rear angulation, most attractive head type with rich tans, moved fluently fore and aft.
3 Craig’s Aldachell The Traveller
Res Hughes’ Loranka's Ignatius
VHC Coaker’s Homerbrent Mastermind
Graduate (17, 2)  
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Battenburg
Heavily blanketed Blen with much appeal as he is so good for size and type. Classy head with gorgeous large dark melting eyes, good pigment. A very well made dog with good substance and bone with correct neck and shoulders, light on his feet covering the ground with ease – I liked him
2 Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Vaudeville
A well marked young dog with rich vibrant markings on a pearly white ground. Lovely head type, darkest eyes and pigment, face framed with well-set ears. He is structurally well made and moved accordingly, now just needing to spring out over the ribs and a little more coat to complete a very pleasing picture.
3 Allerton’s Deeriem Dandi Man
Res Shone’s Cobalatino Candyman
VHC Crane’s Cranvarl Royal Starstruck
Post Graduate (29, 7) A very strong class with 3 of the 5 top places accounted for by good Rubies and I make no apologies for that, Wholecolours are hard work and if they are as good as or better than the Particolours they deserve their just recognition.
1 Hughes’ Loranka’s Firestarter
Vibrant rich ruby of lovely breed type, his coat shone like a rich conker. I particularly admired his outline with good shoulder placement and well turned stifles, masculine head with no frowning, dark eyes, pigment acceptable in this light, moving freely with good tail carriage – I liked him very much and short listed him in the challenge.
2 Name Withheld Name Withheld
A stylish upstanding Blen with much to admire, huge lustrous fully pigmented eyes, attractive expression, can still develop more in head. This dog comes into his own on the move where his good top line and soundness are apparent with his effortless movement; a little immature in body compared to 1 whose rear angulation I marginally preferred. A steady showman displaying the true Cavalier temperament – pity his owner felt so disgruntled with her placing.
3 Owen’s Narayden Kind of Magic
Res Rennard’s Deranmar Christopher
VHC Newnes’ Penquite Cinnamon
Special Mid Limit - Blenheim (16, 1)  
1 Vella & Li’s Avalcier Olivier of Cinderlace
I loved this beautifully clean-cut dog as he has such a classy outline with his good shoulder placement, short level back and strong quarters. His well- broken markings are so rich and vibrant against a pearly white background He is very typical in head with dark eyes, plenty of cushioning in the foreface. A sound steady mover with good tail action. Came within a whisker of top honours and if there were an award for third runner up, that was his – hope he goes on to gain his title.
2 Allerton’s Cazarrah Tennyson for Deeriem
So similar in many respects as he has the same lovely outline, very good for size type and balance. He has a masculine head that is not overdone, beautiful eyes and expression. He too moves very soundly with perhaps not quite the enthusiasm of 1, a lovely dog close up.
3 Williams’ Johnasta Anton Dubeke
Res Surman’s Allrena About Turn to Vallender
VHC Bull’s Ladash Bramble JW ShCM
Special Mid Limit - Tricolour (10, 0)  
1 Tomlinson’s Sanickro Knight Of Honour
Most attractive dog with a lovely shiny black coat with plenty of white flashes. He has a lovely quality head with large dark eyes, really rich tan and his conformation is spot on with ideal substance, moved and handled very well.
2 Boyd & Carter’s Kinvaar Addict
A well turned out smart dog of a slightly different type, ideal for size and type, good top line and tail set, well marked with a good white collar He has an attractive head with good tans, a steady sound mover with good tail action.
3 Biddle’s Hearthfriend Haute Couture
Res Biggs’ Kellorian Poetry In Motion ShCM
VHC Bull’s Craigowl Boss
Special Mid Limit - Ruby (12, 1)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Gazpacho
Striking richly marked dog with a long silky coat which was in very good order. I loved his head and type, big dark eyes, and pigment with just the right amount of cushioning in the foreface and all framed by long ears. He moved and showed very steadily and was well made all through. Quality plus short listed for further consideration.
2 Coaker’s Ttitian Puppeteer at Homerbrent
This dog has a really lovely head type with large dark eyes and good pigment. He is an ideal size with good leg bone and is quite short coupled, moving and showing freely, good coat colouring but he could use some more compared to 1.
3 Smith’s Beaudale Fields Of Gold
Res Tomlinson’s Sanickro Des Res
VHC Lunam’s Malanis Mystic Moment
Special Mid Limit - Black/tan (12, 0)  
1 Boardman’s Volney Bonanza
This classy dog was 3rd in the hot Junior class and like his Ruby kennelmate he is full of quality and type. He had such a gentle head with just the right amount of tapering, large dark eyes, brightest tans. Ideal for size and balance with correct angles allowing him to move freely, first class coat and presentation. – A lovely Black and Tan
2 Shone’s Cobalatino Candyman
Another handsome dog with a very good straight silky coat, bright tans, appealing head type with dark eyes. Overall he is well constructed permitting him to move soundly 1 just had the edge on animation today.
3 Hughes’ Loranka’s Stardom
Res Hollamby’s Tamcinia Midnight Folly
VHC Gardiner & Dansage’s Edonhill Fiddlesticks
Limit (26, 5)  
1 Hughes’ Loranka's Enchanting
I have admired this Tri since I first saw him as a puppy. He is beautifully marked with rich tans his presentation was immaculate, a raven black shiny coat on a pearly white background. He is ideal for size and he moved and showed steadily. Beautiful large dark eyes in an appealing head, a touch deeper in stop for my preference, but point for point he deserved his win, would make a deserving Champion.
2 Jones’ Timsar Mister Moonlighter
Classic Blen type here and he is really balanced all through and an ideal size I loved his head and expression, darkest eyes and pigment following through to his richly marked coat. He coped very well with a change of handler mid class, true Cavalier temperament, could not quite match the winner for coat and conditioning on the day, but he should easily go to the top.
3 Banks’ Pamedna Cotton Sox at Choya
Res Rogerson’s Rabymar Apollo
VHC Li’s Avalcier Manhattan
Open (5, 0) What a class containing 4 well known champions from the youngest to the eldest each with their individual merits
1 Claydon’s Ch Brymarden Montana
Very handsome upstanding dog with a dreamy head and expression. For me he scores on overall balance between length of leg and back tipping the scales in his favour and he really drives on the move. He was a little careless with his tail at the start of the class but this settled when moved individually .He has a strong top line and very good bone and substance. A real stallion type dog whose head and eyes are copybook. so large dark and round and his ears appear to come off the top of his head. Presented beautifully in a rich chestnut jacket, classic Blen type. RCC
2 Baker & Park’s Ch Keyingham Branwell
What a great advocate for the breed this dog has been, a size smaller than his half brother above, the same classic type and as always beautifully coated and conditioned for the show ring. I gave him Best Puppy at WELKS over 4 years ago and commented how he moved like a train on the day and this is still apt today as he puts his head up and moves in a style all of his own. A dog who has already secured his place in the history books so further comment from me would be superfluous.
3 Aldous & Smith’s Ch Aranel Cosmic
Res Inglis’ Craigowl Ryton
VHC Waller’s Castlewytch Arizona avec Jinjan
Special Open Bred by exhibitor (4, 0)  
1 Bubb’s Ch Wandris Entertainer JW
This dog just about fits the bill in all departments and when you add this to the fact that he stands foursquare wags as if on command at the flick of a switch, in tune with his handler he is a difficult act to overlook Totally satisfying to go over as he is hard to fault in construction, surprisingly short backed, good neck and lay of shoulders and meaty hindquarters Most gentle head and expression and his forte are his huge melting dark pigmented eyes combined with the darkest pigment and gently cushioned muzzle. A very heavily coated dog but he has sufficient length of leg to carry it. He floats along effortlessly on the move and was particularly straight in front coming towards me, he too has secured his place in the breed: CC adding to a long list.
2 Schilizzi’s Fin Ch Chacombe Armani
A most attractive Blen full of breed type and quality, large dark eyes black nose pigment. Pleasing overall construction allowing him to move freely, .well handled and presented. Today he was unlucky to come up against a dog at the top of his game in full coat.

Bitches Mr B Mitchell
It's 22 years since I last awarded bitch CCs in this country so it was a special pleasure to officiate here. The Midland Club is lucky in having the sort of committee it does, and I was especially fortunate in having two of its members, Jill Perry and Stephen Goodwin, as my stewards. Thanks to them, to my old friend Mary Rees, the secretary, and Peter Hill for their consideration.
There were several top flight bitches that would have been exceptional when ever they appeared. Their special value is that they are living examples of what can be achieved with planning, care and just a little luck. On the negative side, there were far too many dreadful tails and I was surprised how many iffy and even bad mouths I found, quite a lot on bitches too old for them to improve. I'm not a fanatic but it's something that can get out of hand if not taken more seriously than it appears to be at the moment.
CC Waters' Ch Maibee Gentle Touch
RCC Jones' Ch/Am Ch Timsar Miss Chief
Best Puppy Wards' Charalier Fancy Dress
Veteran (15 entries, 2 absent)  
1 Jones' Ch/Am Ch Timsar Miss Chief
Blen, has a magic all her own. So feminine, such quality, perfect balance, in great form. In the challenge a couple of bitches that might have given her a run looked less well than in their classes whereas Miss Chief never varied, never gave up. You judge as you see, there and then. For me a worthy RCC winner.
2 Wheeler's Sharonaz Melody for Drumhaye
Can anyone tell me why this blen never got made up? Lovely balance & quality, in great form, beautifully typical unexaggerated head.
3 Biggs' Camahieu Marquise of Kellorian
Res Hill’s Becanna Armida
VHC Loynd's Twoacres Carol Singer
Minor Puppy (30, 7)  
1 Ward's Charalier Fancy Dress
Blen, for make & shape one of the best I judged today. Feminine quality head, nice size. To see her on the move was a joy, quite outstanding, never put a foot wrong, outline held perfectly all the time. Best puppy.
2 Li's Avalcier Nadine
Completely different type to 1, elegant quality blen, very correct head with tapered muzzle & flat skull, lovely outline on the move but not the front of 1. Most beautifully presented.
3 Vella's Cinderlace Harmony
Res Claydon's Brymarden Moon Magic
VHC Dean's Clockpelters Lucille
Puppy (33, 8)  
1 Stevens & Moffat's Milkeyn Minnie Pearl
Beautiful shapely blen, wonderful mover, never lost topline, unexaggerated head, everything fits.
2 Ireland-Cooke's Charnell Frolic
When she came in and I sent her group round I thought she was the stand-out winner, superb shape, balance & carriage on the move, with ideal tail carriage, generous head with kind expression. I didn't realise her sister (subsequently 3rd) was in the class and I have to say they did each other no favours.
3 Ireland-Cooke's Charnell Mimic
Res Blackburn’s Bekenvelt Alicia Markova
VHC Coaker's Homerbrent Maribella
Junior (24, 9) This class was headed by two superb blenheims of different type. I shall be surprised if both don't get made up.
1 Waters' Maibee Marilyn
If I could have taken one exhibit home this would have been the one. I wouldn't alter her anywhere - shape, balance, head, movement, temperament, colour - she has the lot. I did wonder whether she might stand a chance for the CC but when it came to the challenge she looked her age (as she should) and began to be a bit fractious.
2 Levy & Sedgwick's Pascavale Clarissa JW
Gorgeous shapely blen, in wonderful form & condition, superbly presented. Loved her balance & quality. Slightly preferred 1s expression but a lovely bitch.
3 Whitehead's Toshini Catherina at Perbelle
Res Evans' Juzandia Betsy Trotwood by Evansly
VHC Powell's Cloudcroft Dixie Chick
Yearling (22, 6)  
1 Bayliss's Brasingamen Ice Mountain
I was very taken by this elegant, scopy b/t with her to die for temperament, must be a joy to own, just what a Cavalier should be. Shapely, great outline on the move, lovely quality head.
2 Lymer & Scheidt's Volney Chardonnay
Such a kind expression in a lovely typical unexaggerated head, well balanced, in good form, very responsive standing, less so on the move. Looks as though she could be invaluable in the nursery.
3 Williams' Clentview Miss Dior Sancana
Res Salisbury’s Clopsville Camarillo
VHC Searle's Stonepit Tinsel Babe
Novice (25, 7)  
1 Hogan's Ricksbury Royal Promise for Stavonga
Beautifully marked blen, such a lovely temperament, unexaggerated head, balanced, in great form. Another who looks to have potential as a brood though that's crystal gazing.
2 Hull's Telvara Kreme D'Menthe
Different type to 1 but so pretty & feminine, beautifully balanced, perfect markings, nice size. Winner exhibited a little more reach on the move.
3 Koster's Harana Sarah Vaughn
Res Loynd's Crimbledale Last Chance
VHC Levy & Sedwick's Pascavale Alice
Graduate (14, 4)  
1 Hindle's Ricksbury Venus to Ellisiana
Blen, most lovely head & expression, balanced, shapely, looked great going round, nice size, loved everything about her. Only just out of junior and looks right for age, so as she should needs time. Had her in my short list for the CC. Will be unlucky not tobe made up with maturity.
2 Attwood's Clentview Paris JW
Beautifully marked blen, slightly heavier than 1 but balanced & quality.
3 Shrimpton's Cobbet's Dizzy Doris
Res Cragg's Volney Halloween with Aureus
VHC Baillie's Fyrnrose Satin 'n' Silk
Post Graduate (19, 5)  
1 Aldous & Smith's Aranel Scrumptious
Small, exquisite blen, lovely balance, in great form. Very pretty, in lovely well marked coat. Too extreme in head type for me but her many positive qualities earned her her place in a difficult class of different types.
2 Mann's Toshini Giovanna at Lyndabelle
Blen, lovely shape & balance, less extreme in head than 1, who clinched her place going round.
3 Salisbury's Clopsville Camarillo
Res Mynott's Honeybet Just Magic
VHC Surman’s Vallender Marley
Special Mid Limit – Blenheim (11, 5)  
1 Barnard's Joshini Louisa JW
Best shape, balance & outline, liked a lot on the move, beautifully marked, great temperament. A bit extreme in head but overall worthy winner.
2 Bloomfield's Oaklake Debbie Harry
Typical all through, after 1 was the next best for keeping outline on the move.
3 Powell's Cloudcroft Cherokee
Res Richardson’s Kringleholme Applause
VHC Craddock's Savantvadi Countess Aimee
Special Mid Limit – Tricolour (8, 4)  
1 Gaskell's Jeilohn Lucinda
Heavily marked handsome bitch, scored going round, in grand form, lovely temperament.
2 Bloomfield's Oaklake Just Dreaming
Showy, heavily marked, lovely temperament. A bit more extreme in head & 1 had better topline on the move.
3 Richens' Kersmere Bluebelle at Emarik
Res Crozier’s Korraines Mooncrystal
Special Mid Limit – Ruby (7, 3)  
1 Sparrow's Tashmit The Next Generation
Gorgeous colour, loved her shape & balance, pretty feminine head. Awful tail.

Special Mid Limit - Black/tan (11, 3)  
1 Bayliss's Brasingamen Ice Mountain

3 Bailey & Lucas' Alberica Walnut Ravenna
Res William's Ravenanne Dark Reflection of Sancana
VHC Payne's Catemmsal Party Doll
Limit (20, 6)  
1 Maclaine's Lochbuie Geordie
Blen, very much the bitch on form in this class, in fitting & typical coat, great temperament, such a kind expression in a lovely head with especially good pigment (several bitches in the senior classes were a bit off), accurate mover. Lovely bitch in my last few for the CC but would insist on doing odd things with her tail at vital moments, I think she must have been coming in season. Another day it might not have mattered but this entry was jam-packed with top bitches.
2 Lymer & Scheidt's Lymrey Sweet Memories
So pretty, so feminine, in form, great quality. Narrowly beaten in a couple of small points.
3 Rix & Berry's Ricksbury Royal Empress JW
Res Hogan's Stavonga Serena
VHC Butler's Tamyse Delecia
Open (6, 2)  
1 Claydon's Ch Brymarden Moon River JW
Heavily marked blen, everything fits, in fabulous form, so balanced, such quality, lovely head with kindest expression, superb temperament, looked a picture on the move in this class and at this point was my favourite for the CC but in the challenge seemed to want to get in front of herself and rather spoiled the picture going round, a shame.
2 Aldous & Smith's Ch Aranel Electra
So pretty & feminine, ideally marked, balanced, refined without being underdone. Winner in top form.
3 Fox-Shone's Ch Pamedna Touch of Fan-TC JW
Res Paterson’s Phrenchy Pollyanna
Special Open Bred by exhibitor (8, 3)  
1 Waters' Ch Maibee Gentle Touch
Smallish, heavily marked blen, gorgeous head & expression, so balanced, such quality, wonderful mover, looked great going round with her tail straight off her back and being well used. A special one. CC & BIS.
2 Inglis' Ch Craigowl Norah Batty
Outstanding tri, so correct in head with its flawless taper, ideal stop & skull, perfectly balanced, showy. Winner's front decided.
