Dogs Mr A Shone (Cobalatino)
It was a great honour and a privilege to be asked to judge The Parent Club Open Show at Top Barn over the weekend. I have turned down numerous other judging appointments over the past 18months or so as not to affect the entry for what I consider a prestigious show. It is always a worry for a judge wondering if they will pull an entry and I never imagined that the entry of 171 dogs would be of such quantity and quality. Thank you to all exhibitors who have supported the Club in entering this show. In several classes, the depth of quality meant that some exhibits went away without being in the cards which is no reflection on their quality, just the very high standard of competition in that class. Also in a couple of classes the top 3 could have easily changed places as their quality made decisions extremely hard and it was down to splitting hairs.
Thank you to the committee for organising a well run, well executed show. The atmosphere for the exhibitors and judge was fantastic, relaxed and friendly. A special thank you for my steward Ann Rennard who kept order and things running smoothly. Fortunately, the forecasted bad weather never materialised to dampen our spirits.
In today’s entry the depth of quality was higher in the bitches than the dogs. My main concern in the bitches was that some were too fine and needed more substance. The girls are our future breeding stock and need some substance to pass on.
Eyes on some exhibits (males and females) could have been bigger and we should strive for a lovely round dark eye as the almond shaped eyes are creeping into the breed. Without that round dark eye it is extremely difficult to get that melting expression so synonymous with the breed.
A general concern, I feel caution needs to be taken regarding the Cavalier head. Not being around the ring for a while I have notice that we seem to be losing the gently tapered muzzle and moderate stop; instead we are seeing a lower ear set, deeper stop, flat face almost round muzzle. While this can be extremely pretty, according to the breed standard it is not correct for the breed and if we are not careful we will be going full circle again and offering a prize to breeders to bring back the long nosed spaniel.
Overall, the dogs had wonderful temperaments, excellently presented and I found lots of quality typical dogs which reminded me why I came into and fell in love with this breed.

Best Puppy Dog Smith’s Beaudale Little Ted
     
Minor Puppy (7 Entries 4 Absent) A lovely class.
1st Smith’s Beaudale Little Ted
What a star!! Ruby who was a right chunky monkey, good for bone, short coupled well angulated and well balanced. Fabulous colour. Lovely dark eye, good pigment and lovely melting expression with a correctly tapered muzzle. No hint of the ruby frown that can ruin the expression. Good ear and tail set. Short loin and moved with drive from the rear. Showed well. Loved him and had no hesitation in awarding him BD, BPD, BPIS, RBIS. Very promising.
2nd Ethridge’s Diddlidors Deago
A little babe of a Tricolour. Nice tan marking. Again a lovely dark eye and sweet expressive head. More feminine and finer all over than 1 (which is not a criticism) which will develop over time. Good ear set completing the picture.
3rd Newell’s Corbieanne Charlottes Boy
Puppy (8, 2)  
1st Claydon’s Brymarden Carolina Sunrise
Another promising youngster of good type. A more heavily marked Blenheim than I would prefer but still oozes quality which can not be over looked. Again another exhibit good for bone. Nicely angulated and moved well. Nice head and soft expression with lovely dark eyes and nicely feathered ears for a youngster. Coat on the blow today which kept him back for top honours. RBD
2nd Hughes’ Loranka’s Moonshine
Well broken Blenheim with lozenge. Pushed 1 hard for top place. Lovely head and expressive face and eyes. Excellent for type, size and balance. Presented in lovely condition. Just preferred the overall chunkiness of 1.
