Judge Julie Holland

My thanks to the Committee for the invitation to judge dogs and to those that entered under me. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. The show was run with such efficiency, it was a pleasure to be there. . Not a huge entry, but full of quality which caused me some difficult decisions. In the latter classes dogs left the ring cardless that were top class dogs I was looking for a masculine, yet elegant dog, that could move with ease, l found that in several dogs and certainly in my CC winner and BPD. Many thanks to my very able steward Alison who ran the ring single handed and kept me up to scratch. It was a pleasure to work with her. A few handlers were very nervous, please relax and enjoy your day, your dogs move so much better when you relax. It’s a dog show, enjoy it.

Veteran. 5.

1. Johnston Mrs H. Ch. Danluke Lord of the Dance J W. What a dog.I hadn’t seen him in the flesh – which went for the majority of the dogs. I don’t think I can say anything that hasn’t been said before. 9 years old and l am sure he is still getting better. He is so well put together and is a delight to go over. He moves so true and with such power yet keeps a long flowing stride. He is in tip top condition. RCC, BVD and with agreement with my co judge, BVIS.

2. Leathart Mrs V. Ringmore Dalrymple. 8 years. A pale fawn boy with a lovely head well set on an elegant neck and smoothly into well angulated shoulders. Good length and depth of chest with correct length of ribbing lead into a correctly angled rear. Good legs and feet. He was well muscled and moved out well.

3. Searle Miss N. Quicksilver He’s the one for Whipsearle. VW.

Minor Puppy. 6.

1. Morris, Waddell, Mycroft and Mitchell. Springfern Wild Thing at Crosscop. 8 months fawn puppy who handled his day out with maturity. Good head with strong underjaw, elegant neck into well laidback shoulders with a good return of forearm, good pasterns and tight feet. Good top line and curvy under line, has the correct depth of chest for his age. Well ribbed and good rear angulation which enabled him to move well round the ring.

2. Richards Mr and Mrs. Richclass From Here on Out. 7 months Pale fawn puppy, not as mature as 1. He has a lovely head with dark oval eyes, good neck and a correct top line. Well ribbed with good length. His angulation both front and rear is just as it should be. Moved well but not quite as accurately as 1. As he matures and tightens up l am sure that he will have a bright future.

3. Stuart Mrs. S. Hologem Moonlove.

Puppy 3.

1. McKinna Mrs A. Springfern Widgeon. 8 months Brindle/white parti. Placed 5th in previous class, he had settled and showed really well in this class. I see from my catalogue that he is litter brother to previous class winner. Of a smaller mould, he won this class on movement. He has a good head with fine, well set rose ears, a good neck and shoulders. He has good length and good angles. He just needs to settle more which l am sure will come with time.

2. Jenkinson and Elliott, Miss and Mr. Coppermow Harfang avec Elstoto. Lightly brindled fawn. 8 months old. He has a good head and neck, good shoulders and a good infill, nice length . He needs to drop a little in depth to give him a curvier underline. He has plenty of time at 8 months.

Junior 8. 2a. 1 w/d

1. Morris, Waddell, Mycroft and Mitchell. Crosscop If I Can Dream. 11 months. A mature puppy who didn’t make things easy for his handlers. Masculine head, good neck and good angulation all round. He has good width across thigh and a well developed second thigh .He has a good top line which he kept on the move. In excellent tight coat and well muscled for his age, he impressed me with his movement, powerful but elegant with a low reaching fore and driving from behind. Very promising puppy. BPD and on the referees decision, BPIS.

2. Mycroft Miss and Sandhurst Mrs. Supetas Snap Crackle N Pop. 15 months paler fawn. Finer type than 1, He was unsettled on the table due to an incident at another show, eventually settled enough to go over him. He is a well constructed puppy, everything in the right place and won his place on movement. Well handled. I hope he gets over his fear on the table.
