Dogs Mrs L Gillhespy (Lorphil)
Thank you to the Officers and Committee of UK Toy dog Championship show for inviting me to judge Cavalier dogs at their show. It was a privilege to judge at such a well-organised show where the hospitality was first class; the dogs were clean, well groomed and temperaments just as they should be. All my winners were well within the breed standard for size and full of breed type. Thank you to the two stewards for keeping the ring in excellent order. My co-judge, Evelyn Hurley and I were in total agreement for our BOB Ch. Valentyne the Irish Tenor and Best Puppy Verheyen Harriet to represent the breed in the big ring.

8 mth tricolour whose outline could not be overlooked. He stands four square at all times and when looking at him in side profile you see a wonderful reach of neck, well laid back shoulders, level topline and wagging tail set on and carried correctly. He is raw in head at the moment, has rich tan markings, large dark eyes and correctly set ears. His spring of rib is developing nicely, he has well turned stifles. His movement was a joy to watch to both ways.

Excellent dentition and dense pigmentation. He is very well constructed, has a straight front assembly, well laid back shoulders, excellent spring of rib and held a level topline most of the time on the move. His very well muscled back legs allow him to have such positive drive in his rear movement. Best Puppy Dog.
2nd Rogerson’s Rabymar Crimson Moon
Exuberant ruby that is just so exciting to go over. Every part of him falls into the correct place. Gorgeous head, that would look lovely in any colour, large dark eyes, well filled muzzle and excellent dentition. Long, well feathered ears which he uses to advantage. Wonderful reach of neck leading into level topline, short, cobby body and well turned stifles. Coat preparation was first class. These two pups could so easily change places in the future.

His short coupled body shape, level topline and terrific drive from the rear end are his strengths. His owner deserves to feel so proud of him and his handler too. He moved so soundly. Thrilled to have been given the opportunity to judge him and award him the C.C. and B.O.B.
2nd Abraham & Koster’s Fr Lux Esp Swiss Int James Brown of Sevijeans

Bitches Mrs E Hurley (Lahume)
I should like to thank most sincerely the Committee of the UK Toy Dog Society for the honour and privilege of judging my Breed at this lovely Show, and also for the hospitality over the weekend. I was sorry to have to leave early before BIS, due to family illness at home, which is also the reason for the lateness of my report, and apologies to the exhibitors. My overall impression was that I was very happy with the consistent size and quality in all the classes. I was very pleased not to find many showing white of eye which totally detracts from the expression of a Cavalier and spoils many an otherwise nice exhibit. Disappointed to find a few bad mouths but again not too many and as the overall quality in the classes was good these had to be penalised. I was happy when I looked at my final line up in the challenge to see an overall consistency for type and size and I should like to thank each of the exhibitors for their entries and acceptance of my decisions. I shall look forward to seeing my CC and RCC in the coming years and wish them well in their careers. Finally, when it came to BOB and my fellow judge Lorraine Gillespie arrived with the dog my heart stopped. I said to her I love your Dog, to which she replied and I love your Bitch. Quandary !! Referee!!, but Lorraine leaned over to me and said the dog has a Lozenge I smiled as a memory popped up from the dim dark days of yore when I was a greenhorn newbie in this new world of Cavaliers I had discovered, and when I had the privilege of meeting Mrs Amice Pitt at the home of Amy Nugent (Tnegun) and nervously asked her about this famous lozenge I had read about. Her answer – "My dear, when you have two of equal value in your eyes then the one with the lozenge should be first", – so I shook Lorraine's hand and told her this story and thereby hangs the tale of BOB at UK Toy Dog 2018. No Referee required!! I was also delighted to see my PB winner go forward as Best Pup. Needless to say I really enjoyed my day among all these Cavaliers, and I hope the Breeders and exhibitors going into the future know the legacy being handed to them and continue to encourage newbies to breed for the qualities that make our breed so special.
