12th April 2003 - Judging Report
would like to thank the hard working Officers and Committee
for a delightful day. The organisation was smooth and professional.
My stewards were excellent and my lunch-time chaperone delightful
company. Thanks also to all the exhibitors who showed their
dogs to their best, and accepted their placing with good grace.
The minus points: quite a few of the younger dogs were up
to the measure, worrying for the future, and some of the bitches
tended to be a bit masculine. Apart from these aspects, however,
the quality was both v high and in depth, with some truly
outstanding specimens. The breed appears to be in good shape
with plenty of keen competition.

DOGS: MPD (8) 1 Catterall & Davies Flairbeck Gingerbread Man At Novadene. Best Dog Puppy. BPIS. Lovely mature looking brown. Strong head with gd chin, lovely almond eyes well set. Moved confidently with plenty of reach in front and lots of rear drive. Many things can change but he should mature into a top winner. 2 Sillito-Beales Malibu Tiger Woods. What an excellent first class - another v gd puppy. V nice head and eye more refined than first. Gd layback of shoulders with excellent upper arm helping to produce great front reach. Level, correct length, back and tail set. Delightful Poodle temperament and absolutely full of energy. 3 Douglas Jilando Eugene Onegin.
PD (6) 1 Thomas Sherrygold Sweet Like Choc. Well chiselled head with a slightly round eye. Nice to find such a gd ribcage on a puppy. V gd rear angulation leading to plenty of drive. 2 Grays Marcha Silver Henry (NAF). Another gd ribcage. Head lacked detail for me, not enough chiselling and depth of stop. Moved soundly with gd rear, but would have preferred more front reach. 3 Glyns Itzapromise Senninha Del Glymar.
PD Black or Brown (2) 1 Thomas Sherrygold Sweet Like Choc. 2 Glyns Itzapromise Senninha Del Glymar.
PD AOC than Black or Brown (1) 1 Grays Marcha Silver Henry (NAF).
JD (8) 1 Popes Rognis Oscar Wild (JW). Plenty of foreface and chin with gd stop. Small point the eye placement not quite right for me. V well constructed both fore and aft. This lead to excellent, dynamic, movement. I really did enjoy watching him move stylishly and with purpose around the ring. In a strong CC line-up he was always in my mind. 2 Evans & Evans-Holders Fabuleux Rocco. Another gd head with eye set slightly better than first. Hindquarters had gd bend of stifle with nice hocks. This produced a powerful rear drive. Excellent coat texture. 3 Pavitts Saltillo Little More Action.
MD (6) 1 Catterall & Davies Flairbeck Gingerbread Man At Novadene. 2 Thomas Sherrygold Sweet Like Choc. 3 Ramseys Kimalia Just Because.

PGD (4) 1 Ramseys Kimalia Just Because. 2 Davis Kejula Moonlight Serenade. 3 Pumfretts Gala Chocolate Surprize.
MLD (2) 1 Bradleys Montelle Just As Gd. Strong head and eye with a great expression. Nice front assembly, well laid back shoulders and correct length of upper arm. This lead to a really gd front action with plenty of reach. Gd ribcage and topline. 2 Catchpoles Majorna Amethyst Flame. Great temperement a real wriggler. His head a bit too heavy for me. Shoulders well laid back but length of back too much. Once he stopped wriggling he moved well.
LD (5) 1 Douglas Jilando Der Rosenkavalier. Gd length of foreface with nice cheeks and almond eyes. Nicely arched neck leading to well laid back shoulders with gd length of upper arm. Moved v well with both gd front extension and rear drive. Possibly best feet of the day. 2 Barkers Starwood Mythical. Beautifully presented with nice head, excellent leathers, slightly too much under the eyes for me. Rear construction was fine but, puzzlingly, he moved slightly close behind. 3 Jeffreys Philora Fire And Dance.
OD (6) 1 Penfold & Cleavers Ch. Shalankas Justin Time (JW). CC. Best In Show. This dog exudes animal magnetism. He simply walked in and expected, demanded, to be awarded top honours. His powerful personality almost makes him look large but he stands under the measure with no difficulty or adjustment. Strong, masculine head and eye, well chiselled foreface, gd eye and ear set with gd length ear leathers. Nice front assembly, well laid back shoulders and correct length of upper arm. Rear angulation was excellent. Moved as if he owned the place without putting a foot wrong, but with plenty of drive. Quite simply, this is a fabulous Poodle. 2 Hurleys Fralex Dark Saturn. Res CC. Another v gd dog with an excellent head and eye and beautifully presented. Shoulders, upper arm and legs all well proportioned and correct. Didnt disappoint on the floor and moved v well. 3 Stone & Coxs Vanitonia The Barrister.

V (3) 1 Douglas Ch Jilando The Legend. What a delightful class. They were all there to show that they werent past it and show these young uns a thing or too. Extremely well constructed dog, especially the shoulders and upper arm. Ramrod straight topline. Put all in on the move, which was still sound and with plenty of energy. 2 Pumfretts Brenina Evie Est Noir. Excellent coat, a real compliment to the dog and owner. As with all three, moved with loads of energy. Front needed slightly more extension, but the rear was gd. 3 Coopers Ajanti Simply Stunning At Stonelaw.
Any Other Clip (3) 1 Sillito-Beales Malibu The Gd Times. Nothing to hide with this clip but then again evthing was worthy of viewing. Classic head and eye from this kennel. Lovely arched neck leading to an excellent body with v gd ribs and topline. Easy to spot the sound front and rear movement. Great temperament. 2 Rickmans Katine Sugar Baby. Pretty head with gd eye shape and setting. Front assembly was gd leading to plenty of front reach. Rear was a bit stilted on the move. 3 Glyns Glymar Maranello Magic.
BITCHES: MPB (8) 1 Watts Micador Wild And Wicked. Petite bitch with a delightful, charming, temperament. Delicate head and eye. Gd shoulders with a well rounded rib cage. Moved well with plenty of front reach. 2 Ingrams Tirkane Angels Kiss. Excellent coat which was well presented. Well proportioned head and eye but slightly masculine for me.

PB (5) 1 Evans & Evans-Holders Fabuleux Miss Congenality. Best Bitch Puppy. Res BPIS. Nice head and eye that, I feel, will improve as she reaches maturity.

Nicely arched neck leading to a short back. V gd front reach. 3 Forsyths Ribbleholme A Dream.
PB Black or Brown (1) 1 Forsyths Ribbleholme A Dream. Gd solid colour. Head slightly too heavy for me. However, lovely neck with gd shoulders producing a gd front movement. Rear was a bit stilted and could have had more drive.
PB AOC than Black or Brown (2) 1 Riddetts Wightwonder Rosie Glow. Fabulous deep apricot colour. Head a bit too masculine, but was, in fairness, well balanced. Lovely shape overall with really nice topline. Moved steadily. 2 Farrands Philora Silver Effegy Of Glaxus. Petite gd soloured silver. Fine head, but with slightly wide base. However, gd shaped eyes set well.
JB (6) 1 Hannars Kasado Liledream To Janucy (JW). This was a v difficult class to choose between first and second. Both had lovely feminine heads with well placed eyes full of expression. Both had gd coats that were excellently presented. The first had v gd shoulders and upper arms that produced excellent front extension. Both moved soundly with style and energy around the ring. Ultimately, the better front extension of the first place got the nod. 2 Lands Stephanelle Atomic Kitten. 3 James-Kirbys Rognis Dreaming Of Mexico.
ND (1) 1 Davies Flairbeck Dance With A Witch.
GB (1) 1 McGoughs Jilando Nana Mouskouri At Robette. Delightful character whose inquisitive nature made her want to stop and examine the lines on the floor! When she did get going her v gd rear angulation produced plenty of drive.
PGB (10) 1 Davis Kejula Love In The Dark. Well balanced head, but not quite feminine enough for me. Overall construction was v sound and delightful to discover. Lovely coat with lustrous colour. Gd construction will always produce gd movement and no exception here. 2 Watts Micador Munchies. Brown bitch with a better, more feminine, head and eye. Again well constructed, particularly gd, well sprung ribcage. Gd feet and moved well. 3 Thomas Sherrygold Shes The One
. MLB (5) 1 Butchers Tuttlebees Witches Witch. CC. Res BIS. Lovely head and eye with gd chin, well chiselled, but always looking feminine. Fabulous construction. The more I examined her, the more it was apparent that evthing was exactly where it should be, well proportioned and quite correct. Her overall balance is simply outstanding. She had a calm self-assured presence. Once on the floor, it all came together and was a delight to watch. This bitch deserves a v long look at by any judge. 2 Tampsetts Missu Time N Tide. I really liked the construction of this bitch as well. Cobby body that was well balanced and of gd length. Pretty head with nice almond eyes and a melting expression. She moved v well with lots of rear drive. 3 Thomas Sherrygold Shes The One.

Rear angulation was gd and produced plenty of rear drive. 2 Sillito-Beales Malibu The Cats Pyjamas. V petite bitch with a delightful foreface. However, I felt that the eyes did not quite sit right. Immaculately presented and moved soundly both fore and aft with plenty of energy. 3 Sheppards Mikasa First Edition.
OB (6) This was a strange class in that there appeared to be several different "types". 1 Stones Vanitonia Clair Voyant. Res CC. Delightfully feminine, petite bitch. Pretty head and eye with a lovely expressive look. Well constructed throughout, in particular her front assembly was excellent She put all in on the move, plenty of rear drive but her front extension was marvellous. 2 Hurleys Belgian & Luxembourg Ch Fralex Dark Secret.
