Dogs Mr P J Hill (Montcolly)
Thank you to the UK Toy Dog committee for inviting me to judge their prestigious show. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and thank the exhibitors for their entries and their heartening sportsmanship. I was staggered at the volume of applause when I awarded the Dog Challenge Certificate, it’s a long time since I heard such reaction. I was pleased with my final line up but feel we have been on a journey and we still have yet to reach our destination. My only recommendation is to maybe re read the breed standard and keep in mind the advice I was given by Mrs Burgess nearly 30 years ago on entering the breed. Everything about the Cavalier is MODERATE. There is no place for extremes and exaggerations however cute and appealing it makes them look. Cast your eyes back to some of the well known dogs in our breed history and you will see what I mean.

1st Mangham’s Maibee Perfect Touch of Charnavale JW
9 years old. Well presented Blenheim of good shape and size. Moved soundly and stood four square. Never stopped showing himself off to his advantage. Has a lot of good breed points and quality.
2nd Biggs’ Kellorian Head Over Heels JW ShCM
Very smart 10 years young Blen with soft head and a very correct shallow stop, well tapered muzzle. Wasn’t moving quite a positively as 1 today. Presented in pristine condition and well handled.

VHC Hobbs’ Khatibi Ready Teddy Go to Beaconsfylde ShCM
Minor Puppy (16, 1)  
1st Koster’s Harana Dean Martin
B/T in gleaming condition and won on his sound movement and showmanship. Positive rear drive, liked his soft head with good shallow stop which is not often seen in the wholecolours. Nice to put hands on and feel the soundness of this boy which tells you he’s going to move with purpose. Well handled as always shows plenty of promise. BPD
2nd Coole’s Jolainey Frederick
Smart young Blenheim with correct head and soft gentle expression, dark eye and nose pigment. I liked his ring presence, he certainly kept his handler on their toes a very nice specimen of the breed, one without any exaggerations.
3rd Wightman’s Ellemich Kouros at Kailyflee
Res Rhodes’ Calonlan Cafe Noir
VHC Parker’s Jordanic Evanly Touch
Puppy (13, 4)  
1st Bloice’s Scotlass Summer Magic
I found this class a little disappointing compared to some of the exciting exhibits in MPD but still pleased with my placing.
A very neat compact Tricolour with no exaggerations. Presented a neat square profile which he held at all times. Dark pigmented nose and a good length of muzzle. You would like a larger eye but they are in balance with his head. Won on overall ring presence.
2nd Spencer’s Jamesbonny Spencer Tracy
Lovely shaped Blen when standing but not quite so positive on the move as 1. Everything is there in this promising young boy. Soft head, good reach of neck and well bodied. Much to like a lot this boy.

Res McInally’s Braemarra Ruben
VHC Kynaston’s Granasil Vontrap
Junior (9, 2)  
1st Watts’ Jamesbonny Josey Wales
13 month Blenheim in good coat, soft and silky in texture. Quite a masculine head for me but had a very expressive dark pigmented eye with dark eye rims which give the desired melting expression, unlike many of the exhibits that show white in the eye which changes the expression completely. Strong and purposeful movement, Presented and shown well.
2nd Davies’ Salegreen Brecon
Blenheim with a slightly deep stop than 1. Well constructed with a good spring of rib and level topline, good turn of stifle giving positive rear drive. Presented in good coat and condition. A very pleasing overall picture.

2nd Forrester’s Salbrie Parker
Unfortunately not as showy today as 1. This Blenheim would present a fabulous picture of the breed if he was up on his toes, such a pity. Had some of the best eyes of the day along with the CC winner. Well broken coat of silky texture in sparkling condition. Head full of correct breed type with shallow stop and almost flat scull with well set ears. Over all a quality specimen of the breed.

1st Gibb-Stuart’s Chantismere Push My Button JW ShCM
This Blenheim showed all the characteristics of a true Cavalier from the moment he stepped in the ring from the tip of his nose to the end of tail. So much at one with his handler / owner absolutely attentive, affectionate and happy. Well developed jet black nostrils, soft muzzle and lip line, broad skull, well and correctly set ears. Large dark round eyes with well cushioned but not short muzzle. Enough neck into a good lay of shoulder. Well sprung rib and fore chest underneath a soft silky coat. Well set tail that didn’t stop wagging as he moved effortlessly around the ring with drive and showmanship. Everything about this boy comes together from his temperament to his overall balance and shape presenting a lovely picture CC and with full agreement of my co judge BOB.

Bitches Mrs T Homes (Leogem)
Thank you to the Committee of UK Toydog for their invitation to judge Cavaliers at their show, and thank you to the exhibitors who put their trust in me to place their dogs in the order of merit I thought worthy. It is never easy standing in the centre of the ring, as you know there will always be those you have pleased immensely and those you have disappointed. Judging has to be fair and honest appraisal must keep the chosen breed at a standard that must see the breed improve and prosper. All serious exhibitors should know by heart their breed standards and it is by understanding and interpreting them in the correct manner that hopefully earn us the accolades that we seek. We should be thinking about breeding for tomorrow and the future generations of dogs. Fashions come and go, but the standard should remain steadfast.
I am reminded that a well balanced, graceful and a gentle expression are at the fore when judging; everything else should be moderate. Temperaments on the day were excellent, and so was presentation.
I was therefore perturbed that many bitches today, although pretty and many had glamour in coat and furnishings, sadly lacked the elegance of the desired requirements. I was looking for those slightly arched necks and well placed shoulders. However I came across many who had short stuffy necks and upright shoulders. With this combination in the front assembly and with no width or depth in the second thigh with consequent little muscle tone, movement and action was stilted and ungainly.
On a happier note I was pleased with my class winners and in some cases I wish I had more than one red card. I felt that my final line up may have given ringsiders an insight to what I was looking for.

1st MacAlpine’s Delhaze Dolly Daydream with Annatika
This little blen lady must have some great days ahead for her owner handler. Head is so correct at this stage. Large lustrous eyes and deeply pigmented nose leather. Good neck and shoulder with enough length in couplings, together with her excellently angled rear quarters gave her power and drive around the ring. Still very much a baby, but already the elegance of outline is there for all to see. BPB and later with my co-judge BPIB.
2nd Koster’s Harana Blossom Dearie
B/T richest of tans and a coat that is already in abundance all gleaming with healthy condition. Good neck and head carriage. Topline needs to strengthen, but with a little time and maturity it will correct itself. Moved and showed well.
