Minor Puppy (8 Entries 0 Absent)  
1st Waters’ Maibee Mcvitie
Great start to the day. Cracking tricolour youngster of almost 10 months who stood showing a smart outline. Had no rough edges with all pieces fitting together smoothly. Generous head with big eyes, dark in colour and full of expression. Black, white and rich tan were favourably placed on head. Skull and muzzle ideally balanced. Especially taken with his easy stride around the ring showing reach and drive with excellent tail carriage. Ideal size and carried enough weight. I know from experience how hard it is to get it right with this colour, and how gratifying it is when you do! Development just right for age and is a prospect who should go on to make a name for himself. BEST PUPPY IN BREED
2nd Levy, Sedgwick & Cline’s Pascavale Jackson
Striking Blenheim, same age as winner. Has the hallmark of quality in head and is the size we should be aiming for (quite a lot of up to size puppies about). Exhibits clarity in his rich, well marked coat. Smooth outline with well-placed shoulders, level topline and good croup. Loved his attitude that was outgoing with no hang ups. Hard to split these two. "Jackson" made my decision a little easier by following, from time to time, his own instincts rather than his handler’s coaching! Lovely puppy with every chance of a great future.

1st Bryant’s Cobbets Frankly Frankie
Neatly made, 9 months old Blenheim of good breed type. Very noticeable with a handsome head, dark eyes and rich chestnut coat. Attractive body shape with neck, shoulders and topline blending well. Short back, good ribs and well carried tail completed the tidy picture. Happy and willing to do all that was asked. Tail could be better set, but other than that he impressed.
2nd Hughes’ Jordanic Touch The Sky at Loranka
Another cheery Blenheim enjoying his show time. Not the exceptional richness of coat colour of winner but he made up for it in other ways. Mature in body with deep chest. Shoulders well laid and when he moved around the ring it was with confidence and accuracy holding a splendid topline and nicely carried tail. Dark eyes with strong nose pigment. Although the same age as 1, thought his head less developed.

1st Smith & Aldous’ Aranel Genesis
Mouth-watering Blenheim of lovely type with a glorious head and refined expression. Sweet in outlook with eyes right out of the text book. Large, dark and round and an expression that is best described as tranquil. Ideal body length with good leg height, complimented by moderate bone and substance. Clean cut outline with neck, shoulders, topline and tailset all as required. Shown in lovely bloom and his well broken, silky coat gleamed. Have seen him better behaved, especially on the move, and he was lively, making his handler work hard. However his type, style and star quality made him stand out and I didn’t have to think twice before awarding him the CC and ultimately BEST OF BREED. This was his 3rd CC and so made him the latest Breed Champion, at the tender age of 15 months. He adheres closely to the Breed Standard which, despite his youth, allows him to be compared favourably and on an equal footing with his older competitors. Obviously felt a bit of pressure in the Breed classes but was visibly more relaxed in the Group competition and he took Group 4 to great applause from his admirers who stayed to cheer him on.
2nd Waters’ Lanola Siesta of Maibee
Good looking Blenheim. Not flamboyantly marked but his blanket markings highlight his clean lines and his conker chestnut coat colouring has instant impact. Long ears framed a kind face with round, dark eyes. Flat skull. Medium bone. Good neck and he covered the ground with a purpose displaying good drive in the rear. Very exuberant and can stand with a sloping topline if permitted. Came into the challenge but was unsettled. Will have better days.

1st Wightman’s Charnell Montgomery at Kailyflee
Glamorous Blenheim with a luxury coat that was heavier marked than called for in the Standard but his other qualities shone and outweighed this cosmetic shortcoming. Had a short concentration span and his handler needed to get his attention. Sweet face with eyes, dark, large and round. Could be shorter backed but if his confidence level was higher, he might pull himself together. Wonderful breed type and it was this that swung it in his favour. Feel that dog and owner need a bit more rapport and this will ensure his high placing in the future.
2nd Mangham’s Garlouchi Just Magic of Charnavale JW
Respectable Blenheim who was a more accomplished mover than the winner but lost out on head refinement. Difficult decision as both had appeal with different strengths. Well marked, good nose pigment, super tail, willing showman. He even had a lozenge. Put up a good performance and was difficult to ignore.

1st Jinks’ Khatibi Angus Macoatup at Edenloch
Blanketed tricolour with bright tan. Easy to overlook as he lacked the obvious advantage that accompanies flashy coat markings and he didn’t always project himself. Simply out moved his rivals in the class and his plus points and lack of imperfections earned him this place. Good body proportions with adequately placed shoulders and well angled stifles. Looked good in profile holding a straight back line and rudder tail. Classic head with kind expressive eyes that probably could be bigger but the gentleness was there. Plenty of shiny, silky coat that seriously needed expert TLC. A decent dog with above average qualities who could do some useful winning with more skilful presentation.
2nd Lovel’s Lovetrac Markofdistinction JW
Glancing around the class initially, thought this young Blenheim was a contender to win. Long ears framed a handsome head that was all male and even sported a lozenge. Since he left the Junior classes his outline is more streamlined and balanced. Presented in pristine condition. His rich chestnut coat gleamed. Sadly, he was uncoordinated and disappointed on the move and had to settle for 2nd place.

1st Levy, Sedgwick & Cline’s Pascavale Bailey
Another top notch Blenheim who participated in my final analysis and was awarded the RESERVE CC. So much to like. Gentle headed dog with lovely face features. Soft eyes that added kindness to his expression. Long leathers. Attractively marked and shown in silky coat that was full but did not mask his shape. Elegant profile and one of the best movers today and he swept round the ring unrestricted with a level topline and tidy tail. Champion quality stamped all over this dog and feel he just needs to wait his turn. Hopefully, not long.
2nd Ireland’s Charnell Monterey
Deeply coloured Blenheim with a winning head that held all the ingredients that make a delicious expression. Long ears. Flat skull. Big round eyes, dark and soulful. Enough fill. Black nose pigment. Good nose length. Had medium bone and was spot on for size. Agreeable neck, shoulders, topline and tailset. Having seen him from the ringside I was pleased to get my hands on him and was not let down with what I found. Just wish he could show more interest as he tends to throw away his chances. Such a pity as he could have an easy trip to the top.

Distinguished Blenheim Champion, I last judged as a puppy. Now at 3 years old, fully mature and in in his prime. Lots to love. Clearly masculine yet had the softest, liquid expression, hard to resist. Long ears, flat skull, plenty of cushioning. Fortunate in having a good neck and shoulders and well angulated hindquarters that allowed him to carry himself well on the move and had great self-assurance. Not cocky, just quietly confident. Shown in full coat that was dense and profuse. In my final four and deserving. Pushed hard just preferred the shorter body lengths of my final ticket winners.
2nd Gaskell’s Jeilohn Coinneach
No frills about this tricolour boy who although he lacked the coat and glamour of winner was so satisfying to go over. Presented in beautifully marked black and white coat with good depth of tan. Handsome headed with complimentary face markings and moved around the ring in a collected manner, showing his sound construction. His gait coming towards me and going away, continued to impress. Will be 3 years old at the end of the year but looked younger and feel his best has yet to come.

4 year old Blenheim who showed like a trooper and being attentive was easy to assess. In nice coat with well-spaced, deep chestnut markings. Super pigmentation in nose and eyes and a gentleness in his expression that came from big, soft eyes and enough cushioning. Sweet natured boy who has had success in the Adult Handling Competiton classes. They paid off, Alison!

1st Levy, Sedgwick & Cline’s Pascavale Kira
6 months, baby Blenheim with sweet face features. Pocket size with lovely bone and no trace of weediness. Neck fitted into clean shoulders leading to firm topline and agreeable tail set. Clearly defined coat. Willing to please and occasionally impish which appealed. At this stage she has everything fitting nicely together before going into a more awkward phase and it was this balance where she had the advantage over 2. On her debut and although it is early days this puppy has great expectations.
2nd Chapman’s Ellemich Indulgence
Pretty feminine Blenheim who was only a couple of weeks older than winner, but at a rangier stage of development. Looked striking in her bright chestnut coat. Excellent pigmentation. Nicely built with good neck and shoulders and goes around with style keeping her head up. Preferred croup of 1 but a quality bitch with good chance of success.

1st Hubbard’s Cobbets Dancing Diva avec Popolulu
Animated, little Blenheim who scored for shape with excellent neck and shoulders, spirit level topline and well turned stifles. Sweet head, full of breed type. Great Blenheim colouring, rich chestnut just as it should be. Easy, unrestricted movement. Her obvious enthusiasm appealed and she attracted attention. A rather special puppy and although only 9 months old, no crystal ball needed to predict her future! Today she took BEST PUPPY BITCH. Her litter brother took the Puppy dog class.
2nd Whitfield’s Bevelmount Red Focus
Tempting Ruby of 11 months with lovely head type. No extremes in stop or skull and her expression was soft and gentle. Good eyes. Deep chest with well sprung ribs. Precise mover with strong rear and tidy front. I see she is half sister to my RCC winner, sharing the same mother. Not quite the effervescence of 1. but was in no way overshadowed and I consider the odds good for them both to go on to great success.

Smart Blenheim of 13 months who has just left behind the puppy classes and in this form should continue her successes in the adult competition. Gives 100%. Built on elegant lines with exceptionally clean neck and shoulders and her topline was firm. Liked her tailset and croup. Has lots of style on the move. Feminine head piece and smashing eyes and pigmentation. Good for size and substance. Gives a performance hard to ignore.
2nd Schilizzi’s Anncourt Miss Lemon of Chacombe
Pretty, lightly marked Blenheim bred in Finland. Was new to me and appealed for her gentle face, good body proportions and lush, silky coat. Such a happy girl and gave winner a good run for her money. Eyes watering that took the edge off her appeal. Hope we see more of her as she impressed.

1st Levy, Sedgwick & Cline’s Pascavale Alexus
Upmarket Blenheim who could not be faulted for breed type and with more coat could be up there with the main winners. Sweet head, pretty eyes, black nose. Loved her size and substance. Not just a pretty face but well put together with the best outline in the class. Short coupled body. Good attitude for the ring. Needs furnishings to progress.
2nd Conneally’s Coedgwylum Hot Tip
Feel this Blenheim has much to offer the breed as she scores highly in most respects. Gentle open face with big expressive eyes. Well sprung rib cage. Smashing colourings. Had the coat and finish that winner needs but not so feminine or as compact.

1st Eustace’s Charnell Monsoon
A "Montrose" daughter bearing more than a passing resemblance to “Silkience” so she made a good first impression. Delicious head and expression with soft eyes and strong pigment. Completely feminine and fitted the Standard to a tee for size and substance. Her coat condition and muscle tone were excellent and she moved elegantly around the ring displaying a flowing outline. I was pleased to award her the CC and hope my high opinion of her is shared. In this form she could easily pick up 2 more.
2nd Whitfield’s Bevelmount Red Ribbons
The wholecolours go through the doldrums more than the particolours and at present, quality is thin on the ground. So it was refreshing to find such a lovely Ruby. Her mother, did well under me when shown and has passed on her strengths. Head is classic with long ears, flat skull, shallow stop and correct foreface. No exaggerated features. Gentle face with soft expression. Good outline in profile with level topline. Straight quality coat with enough length for glamour. One of the nicest Rubies I have seen in a long time and with enough outings should go all the way. Today settled for the RESERVE CC.

This well marked Blenheim pretty much checks all the boxes and is nigh impossible to place lower as she satisfies for size, construction and movement. Very outgoing, she was having fun. Her expression although feminine with correct face features, just left me wanting more softness but as the latest bitch champion, is another deserved success for Team Loranka.
2nd Lovel’s Maibee Roselyn at Lovetrac
Gloriously coloured Blenheim whose sweet expression came from lovely eyes. Huge ears with plenty of feathering. Very feminine in outlook and her dainty size appealed. If taken at "face" value could rise to the top, but let down by her rear movement.

What is left to say, that hasn’t been said, about this glamorous record breaking Cavalier who has won 26 CCs? Suffice to add that I appreciated the opportunity to judge her and she did not disappoint. Instantly appeals for expression and ideal face markings with rich tan that adds to the sweetness. Soundly constructed and she was particularly strong behind. Carrying a luxury coat that was straight and silky but because of the wealth tended to mask her shape and outline.
2nd Baillie’s Fyrnrose Mrs Tiggy Winkle
Another well coated exhibit. This one a well bodied Blenheim in wonderful condition. A friendly personality with a pretty face, long ears, flat skull and shallow stop. Great eyes that were good for size, shape and colour. This bitch gets better and better and although her topline could not match winner’s felt she was looking exceptionally good today. Beat another lovely bitch who stood third, but was sadly in a state of undress!
