Dog Results Bitch Results Breeders Competition
Dogs Mr M Hegarty
It was an honour to be asked to award CC’s for the first time at this most lovely of shows. I would like to thank the committee not only for the invitation but also for the hospitality shown on the day. Also to my two stewards Mr & Mrs Hurst who kept things running smoothly. I was very pleased with my final line up in both sexes and was quite spoiled for choice in many classes.
I have always favoured a more moderate type as clearly stipulated in the breed standard. I do feel strongly that classical unexaggerated dogs can and do possess the necessary features to enable them to exude excellent breed type. Perhaps some see this as a harder challenge than they many think and why some choose to ignore this in favour of extremes that look good but are not in accordance with the demands of the standard. However, with reference to balance and moderation as the backbone of any breeding program much can be achieved in this regard.
It was gratifying to find many exhibits free from such exaggerations and other unacceptable trends that have almost established themselves as the norm. High set ears and flat skulls define our breed and are essential to achieving a correct look and should be favoured over low ear sets that are now becoming all too common.
May I thank all exhibitors, especially those who travelled great distances. I appreciate the time and great expense you took to exhibit on the day and thank all for the sporting way in which decisions were accepted.

Best Puppy McInally’s Dalvreck Dream On at Braemarra
     
Minor Puppy (10 Entries 3 Absent) Lovely class with lots of promise in all placed.
1st McInally’s Dalvreck Dream On at Braemarra
Impressed from the moment he entered the ring and will always demand attention. Ultra smart blenheim boy who stood in the best of coats of correct texture and rich chestnut colour. Really eye catching in profile and equally pleasing on the move with his elegant easy action, super top line and well carried tail. His head is so correct; framed with high set ears and dominated by large dark and lustrous eyes that give the gentlest of expressions. I am sure he will mature into something special and on this form will go on to make a name for himself. In the challenge for BP he was a tad unsettled and lost out only to an equally super bitch puppy that had her act together on the moment. BPD
2nd Koster’s Harana Alfie Boe
No disgrace to be standing second here. This upstanding B/T is just as we have come to expect from this exhibitor. Appealing shape and outline which caught my eye. Correct bone and all of the right angles to enable him to move with great style and elegance. Lovely head that just needs more time to come to its best – as it should. Nice coat coming through which was immaculately presented. Enjoying his day out.
3rd Hughes’ Jordanic Touch The Sky at Loranka
Res Rennard’s Deranmar Sinclair
VHC Sedgbeer’s Russmic Billy Ray
Puppy (8, 2)  
1st Hughes’ Stonepit Heaven Sent to Loranka
Ultra smart, richly marked, well broken blenheim who presented a crisp outline in profile which was hard to ignore. He looked every inch the class winner and was a joy to watch going around with his positive driving action and well carried tail. His headpiece is masculine yet made up of gentle curves with no exaggeration and the best of eyes imparting a gentle expression. Another one who should go on to greater things.
2nd Baillie’s Selkies Heavenly Prince at Fyrnrose
Many similar remarks apply and not surprising as they both share the same sire who was a deserved RCC on the day. Well-made boy with the best of shapes. Head just needs more time to soften. Nicely broken, showing promise of a good coat. Exuberant temperament made him a little difficult to assess on the table but gave a better account of himself on the move. I liked him a lot.

VHC Finlay’s Sorata Beckham
Junior (1, 0)  
1st Anderson’s Finchlea Rantin Rovin Robin
Stood alone but this well broken tricolour of ideal size was worthy of this win. Liked his neat make and shape. Good rich tan in all of the right places. Moved and showed well and a credit to his proud owner.
Yearling (7, 2)  
1st Waters’ Lanola Siesta of Maibee
On entering the ring he immediately took my eye with his striking outline. With his superb top line with well carried tail he is impossible to miss in profile and on the move; and did so with great panache. Most beautiful of heads with soft expression from eyes of correct size, shape and colour. On this performance he is no doubt destined for the upper house. Just needs to coat up and he will compete with ease.
2nd Rogerson’s Rabymar River Dancer
Ultra smart B/T who has ideal size and proportions. Carried a wealth of well presented coat with good rich tan in all the right places. One of the sweetest of heads with good eyes giving a lovely gentle outlook. Moved with verve and handled well to get the best out of his outgoing nature. A quality exhibit that can hold his own in any company.
3rd Crane’s Spindlepoint Macallan into Cranvarl
Res Culbert’s Volney Tabasco
VHC Taylor’s Tingewood Tomintoul
Novice (6, 2)  
1st Lovel’s Lovetrac Markofdistinction
Upstanding 14 months blenheim who was impressive on the first go around and did not disappoint on the table. Though slightly longer cast he is well constructed and has a good shape with lovely bone. Appealing head with very good eyes. Stood in a wealth of coat which was richly marked and well presented. Handled and moved beautifully to win the class. I hope he progresses through the classes on to greater things.
2nd Sedgbeer’s Russmic Marley
Ruby boy of good overall merit. Nicely constructed all through and moved accordingly. Richly marked coat which just needs to come through to complete the picture. Pleasing head which should soften with maturity. Well schooled and handled.
3rd Whitfield’s Bevelmount Razzmattaz
Res Finlay’s Sorata Beckham
Graduate (7, 3)  
1st Kerr’s Kinvaar’s Mile High Club
Strikingly marked Blenheim with the richest of colour and so well broken in a lush straight coat of correct texture. Really handsome head with dark eyes and lovely expression. Super to go over on the table as each part fits so well into the next giving him a lovely balance in profile and on the move where he really came into his own. Strode out with the superb reach and drive only a very well constructed dog can achieve. A quality boy indeed.

Post Graduate (9, 1)  
1st Boyd’s Wandris Comedian at Airlie JW
Extremely well marked blenheim boy who I have admired previously. Ideal for size and a lovely shape. Soundly made he was so satisfying to watch on the move with light free positive action. Super top line and tail set made my eye go back to him when moving. Good rich colour in a beautifully presented coat which was well broken. Classic head properties with nothing overdone and a kind expression from dark, gentle eyes. Shown to advantage.
2nd Baillie’s Selkies Odanodan at Fyrnrose
An absolutely lovely head and magnificent eyes is the first thing I noticed about this boy. Short on coat on the day but nothing to hide as it showed off his wonderful shape and outline with super top line and well carried tail which was so evident on the move. When in more coat (and if his young kennel mate can manage to resist his ears) he will always be in the ratings. Shown to advantage.

VHC Taylor’s Costara Ruadh at Lyncraeg
Mid Limit (7, 0) 3 beautiful dogs headed this class.
1st Waters’ Maibee Time After Time
This heavily marked blenheim with rich chestnut jacket handled really well on the table with everything fitting together and pleasing to the touch. Such an ideal size and so full of the type we have come to associate with this kennel. Exquisite head framed with correct high set ears, gentle curves and just the correct amount of cushioning. One of his many great features is his superb eyes giving him one of the best expressions on the day. Moved positively in all directions and kept a good top line with perfectly carried tail. Enough enthusiasm to win over 2. A type we should be aiming for.
2nd Hughes’ Loranka’s Moment In Time JW
Quality well marked tricolour boy, also by Montrose, who is impressive in so many ways. Like all from his kennel he is made well made and presented to perfection. Good tan in all the right places. Super head and eyes. He moves with great reach and drive and is so parallel in both directions. Just not as enthusiastic on the day as I have seen him before. A very useful boy to have in any kennel.

VHC Hubbard’s Popolulu Dazzling Dempster JW ShCM
Limit (12, 1)  
1st Rogerson’s Rabymar Untouchable JW ShCM
Compact B/T who presented a super picture both standing and on the move. Excellent conformation in an ideal sized frame and was a joy to watch go around with sound positive action. Very attractive head with good eyes and lovely cushioning to give a gentle expression. Shown in plush coat with rich tan markings and wonderful condition. Never put a foot wrong to win the class.
2nd Mynott’s Honeybet Magic Touch
Beautifully marked tricolour boy who caught my eye on entering the ring. Shown in lovely coat of great condition. Moved soundly both ways showing off excellent conformation. Pleasing head with good eyes though muzzle a little short for my taste and could benefit from a pound or two less. That said he moved elegantly and will catch many an eye.

Open (4, 1)  
1st Waters’ Ch Maibee Make Believe JW
Commanding of anyone’s attention this dog was here to win and pulled out all the stops to pip another quality exhibit to second place. Not much can be said that hasn’t been said already. He gave me goose bumps when I saw him at his first show and I gave him BIS at a Club Open Show 2 years ago. If anything, he is even better now. While at the upper end of the size spectrum he is quality throughout as each part of his well boned frame fitting neatly into the next. He is so satisfying to go over on the table where his overall balance is best appreciated. His head is just so classical, with the correct amount of cushioning and his high set ears, framing everything so well. Kindest and darkest of eyes that impart a soft lustrous look. Shown in a great coat of the richest chestnut, he looked stunning going round with his sound effortless action and perfectly carried tail. Indeed it was this that clinched BOB as I felt that he just could have gone on and on – like the energizer bunny! Short listed in the group where I think he went even better in a larger ring. One of the greats and there is no mistaking he has much left to give in the ring. Not surprising with a dog of such merit that many of his offspring featured well on the day too. BOB
2nd Hughes’ Ch Loranka’s Just Like Heaven JW
Unlucky to meet 1 in such good form. I love this blenheim boy who is worthy of the many accolades he has accrued over the years. His head is classical and not exaggerated with good ear set and the best of eyes that melt you instantly. In fact everything about him is totally unexaggerated. So well balanced and tightly knit together it was not surprising that he moved so well. Shown to advantage in a well broken jacket of the richest chestnut on a pearly white background he was striking to watch going around which he did with ease and elegance. A close decision.

Best Puppy Koster’s Montcolly Dottie
     
Minor Puppy (18, 3)  
1st Koster’s Harana Cilla Black
Eye catching little B/T with rich tan markings. Immediately caught my eye on the move and did not disappoint on the table. Most appealing of heads with lovely eyes and expression. Really good neck and shoulders with a level top line and tail set that made her hard to miss with precise driving movement. An assured future star of this kennel.
2nd Rennard’s Deranmar Caitlin
Richly marked well broken girl with the very best of make and shapes. I loved the free and elegant way she took herself around the ring using her well turned quarters to drive with ease. Pleasing head with large dark round eyes giving a lovely expression. Attentive to her handler and should always catch the eye. A young lady who will get even better with maturity and will never go over the top.
3rd Gillhespy’s Lorphil Slip Silver
Res Ballantine’s Peakdowns Paris at Middleshott
VHC Waddington’s Spindlepoint Lyra
Puppy (10, 3)  
1st Koster’s Montcolly Dottie
A wonderful blen who stood in a wealth of well broken silky coat with rich chestnut makings. She appealed for overall shape and balance with nothing discordant in her outline standing or on the move. She had possibly the best eyes of the day – large, dark, round and lustrous – which reminded me of the Saladors of yesteryear. Extremely classical head properties that will take time to mature to its best. Once this is achieved she will be a laster as she is so correct. Moved and showed with lots of attitude and exuberance which is what won her the class over an equally beautiful exhibit and ultimately clinched it for BPIB too. I can see her on my couch!
2nd Ackroyd-Gibson’s Toraylac Perfect Passion
Never to be ignored this classy little girl has a great future ahead. Ideal for size and presented the best of shapes in profile. So satisfying on the table with each part flowing seamlessly into the next. Well broken jacket of good colour. Her head is captivating and so typical of her breeding. A real toy spaniel with substance! Will compete in any company. Loved her.
3rd Henley’s Selkies Heavenly Lily
Res Lovel’s Lovetrac Mark Of An Angel
VHC Spark’s Sharuo Duchess of Atholl
Junior (7, 1) Lovely class fronted by two super girls who were so alike in many ways. Difficult to separate.
1st Claydon’s Brymarden Carolina Moon
A real neat toy spaniel who stood in a heavier marked jacket of rich chestnut markings. For me she was ideal for size and type. Her head is so beautiful with perfect balance and superb eyes imparting a beautiful expression. Well made all through and moved positively in all directions. A tough decision between 1 & 2 which was clinched only by a hair!
2nd Inglis & Vorderstrasse’s Bonitos Companeros Untouchable at Craigowl
Many of the same remarks apply to this equally beautiful girl. Very similar in head and eyes to winner – both are by Make Believe. Strode around the ring in full sail with a prefect carried tail and level top line. A touch longer perhaps but only served to give her more elegance than most! In between coats on the day. Will have many more days in the spotlight.

Neat little girl with lovely shape and outline. I loved her head with large round dark eyes giving the best of expressions. Shown to advantage to display her excellent top line & tail carriage. Drove off well too from good quarters and caught my eye on the move. A very useful bitch.
2nd Gow’s Lochbuie Teazle at Lyncraeg
Liked this blen for type and style, nice dark eyes and good pigment, very good flowing movement.

2nd Scott’s Lorphil Lalibertie
Sweet well broken blen. Appeals very much in head with super shaped round dark eyes and the gentlest of expression. Beautiful rich markings which were so well broken, unfortunately a little out of coat on the day. Moved well in profile and in front – not so positive when going away. A quality girl.
3rd Halbert’s Izzharree Amber Amor Amor
Res Hunter’s Spennithorne Summer Rose
Graduate (5, 2)  
1st Gillhespy’s Miletree Celeste to Lorphil
Well broken girl with a glorious head and the softest of expressions with nice plush foreface yet correctly tapered muzzle. So typical or her breeding. Well-made throughout with level top line and well sprung ribs and perfectly angled croup and tail set. What clinched the class over another nice bitch was her sound easy action on the move. Wonderful temperament.
2nd Turnbull’s Peakdowns Skye
Another lovely girl so ideal for size. Presented a lovely picture in her well broken jacket of rich chestnut colour. Classical in every way her head is as it should be – not overdone and well-proportioned with great eyes and pretty feminine expression. Moved and showed with enthusiasm and was close up to winner.

Post Graduate (3, 1)  
1st Richardson’s Marigill Miesque
Well balanced exhibit who was showing well on the day with nothing to detract from her good shape and outline. Nice top line and tail set. Loved her head with correct feminine expression. Well broken jacket coming on nicely. Will no doubt continue to do well.
2nd Renaud’s Ellenaud Amazing Grace
Nice type of girl who stood in a lighter marked jacket of correct texture. Pleasing body shape which was short coupled. Appealing head with gentle eyes and dark pigment. Moved well in both directions. A nice one to have.
Mid Limit (9, 0)  
1st Hughes’ Loranka’s Touching Heaven JW
Beautiful blen girl with lovely overall balance and correct bone for her frame. Classical head with best of eyes. Nice well broken jacket of correct colour and texture. Lovely to go over. Great neck & shoulders with super top line and tail carriage. No surprise she moved with correct drive and precision. With a touch more maturity will trouble the best.
2nd Bartlett’s Korolevsky Oksana JW
Neat little blen girl who appeals greatly for size and type. Pretty head with good eyes and softest expression. She is a lovely shape and moved well and showed herself off to advantage. Loved her attitude – and a real mummy’s girl.

1st King-Smith’s Ispahan Bella Paola
Such a beautiful well broken girl with super rich chestnut markings. No surprise to hear that she gained her well-deserved crown. Her head is just so balanced with lovely gentle eyes that were large, dark and round with thick well placed ears framing her sweet face. Similarly balanced outline that was held well on the move. A natural showgirl who pulled out all the stops to take first place over another lovely Montrose daughter. In my final 4 for CC.
2nd Baillie’s Fyrnrose Mrs Tiggy Winkle JW
Unlucky to meet 1 on the day. When she entered the ring I thought she was a contender. More classical in head than 1 but with same lustrous eyes and super dark pigment. Stood fore square with a well balanced frame allowing plenty of chest room and spring of rib. Dressed in a plush coat which was both rich in colour and the silkiest of texture. Carried herself so well in profile and looked smashing going round the ring with the ease of a well-balanced and proportioned dog. Again in the final 4.
3rd Kerr’s Suesitna Santa Lucia from Kinvaar
Res Renaud’s Ellenaud Amazing Grace
Open (6, 2) The four super bitches in this class made it a tough call indeed. They were all of excellent merit in my estimation and all worthy of the title Ch.
1st Hughes’ Ch Loranka’s Sherrie Baby JW
So pleased to have had the opportunity to judge this most impressive, ideally marked tricolour bitch. Everything about her is just bang on! I really fell for her on the table when I gazed into her beautiful eyes – so round dark and limpid. On closer inspection she was beautifully constructed. Hands on, each part is made for each other. Easily catches the eye for her overall balance and clean lines, feminine head with lovely expression, dark eye & pigment, lovely reach of neck set on well laid shoulders, super straight, well boned forelegs, ribs well sprung & short in the couplings, rear angulation complimenting front giving a lovely balanced picture. Moved out well from strong quarters, easily covering the ground keeping a strong level top line. So please to award her the CC and in great company had to settle for BOS. Both these dogs deserve their place in the history of our breed.
2nd Chapman’s Ch Ellemich Aurora JW
Well known and accomplished blenheim Ch. who would not be denied her place in this class. Close up to winner in many respects. Scores heavily for overall type. Well-constructed throughout with good neck and shoulders and nicely sprung ribs that tapered nicely into short couplings. Pleasing angles front and rear with really positive movement in all directions. Captivating head with wonderful eyes that are so correct in every way, giving a super expression. On top of all this she has so much fizz and dared me to place her high in the rankings. A bitch to be proud of.
