A Big THANK YOU to Graham Parkin for being our Photographer for the day!
BORDER UNION CH SHOW 20 June 2015
Firstly thank you to the Committee for inviting me to judge this well run and friendly show and helping to make my day run smoothly with very able stewards.
Thanks to all who entered their dogs under me, on this, my first Championship Show judging appointment. It was an excellent day, and so lovely to have such wonderful exhibits to judge – all worthy of winning and in some cases made my decisions quite hard. I was however surprised to find at this level of show, both level bites and small jumbled teeth in some exhibits, which obviously affected their placings.
The highlight to my day was watching my BOB winner in the group, who at one point I thought was being shortlisted, and my Best Puppy in Breed go on not only to be shortlisted, but to take Puppy Group 4! Both of these excelled themselves in the groups, showing their socks off especially when the weather had warmed up from the morning!
Puppy Dog (3,0abs)
1st – Catto’s Birselaw Stay With Me – 6 ½ month Dark Brindle with good harsh coat, pleasing masculine head, alert expression, with good stop, dark eye and correct dentition. Nice overall size, ribcage correct shape and good length of loin. Angulations in rear gave good rear drive on movement, but would prefer more space. Showed well, for one so young.
2nd – Smith’s Rocasovale Distant Drums. 6 ½ month Red Brindle with good double coat, another pleasing head with dark eye. Not as happy as 1st place, but has good angulations front and rear, carrying a little extra weight, and a little overawed by the occasion. Once settled movement was good with nice space in rear.
3rd – Miller’s Cornton Armistice
Junior Dog (2,0abs)
1st –Marshall’s Brenndarcy Lord Marmaduke Avec Strathgarten – Wheaten, with pleasing head, nice almond eye shape, good stop and neat ears carried well. Nice length of neck, balanced angulations, good length of leg, with body in proportion. Correct ribcage and tail set. Shown in short harsh coat, moved with level topline, showed well throughout.
2nd – Lamb & Saltmarsh’s Bireslaw Dark Charmer –Brindle with masculine head. Good lengths of neck, nice overall size, correct shaped ribcage and nice length of loin but would prefer a harsher coat.
Novice Dog (1,0abs)
1st – Smith’s Rocasovale Danish Delight. 6 ½ month dark brindle. Lovely head and expression, good length of neck and nice rear angulation, showier than his brother yet difficult to fully assess movement as he did play his handler up. However, should have a bright future.
Post Graduate Dog (3,0abs)
1st – Percy’s Winetta Sir Ivor – Nice harshly coated dark brindle with masculine head nice stop, neat correctly set ears, with correct bite and large teeth. Lovely length of neck sat on good shoulders, straight front, level topline, well-shaped ribcage, and length of loin in proportion. Correct tail set carried well on move and standing to complete the outline. Moved and showed well, had the extra sparkle in the final line-up, therefore pleased to award DCC.
2nd –Parkin’s Carradine My Mate Matthew –Grey Brindle. Head and expression good, with neat ears. Nicely boned, overall of a nice shape, moved well for his owner.
3rd – Miller’s Cornton Dark Corrie
Limit Dog (2,0abs)
1st – Catto’s Nordcairn’s Once Upon a Time at Birselaw (IMP DNK) Dark Brindle with correct harsh coat. Nice size, with good masculine head, nicely sized teeth. Neck flowed into nicely angulated shoulders. Lovely ribcage and length of back in proportion to length of leg. Moved and showed well, however would like a little more animation.
2nd - Lamb & Saltmarsh’s Renshaw There and Back Again under Macmoon ShCm. Slightly larger than 1st, would prefer a little more length of neck. Nice head and expression. Appeared a little tired. Moved steadily.
Open Dog (3,0abs)
1st – Waite’s Svendalens Snow Knight – Wheaten Brindle with correct harsh double coat. Good neck, nice angulations to both shoulders and rear. Nothing over exaggerated with this boy, beautifully balanced, which showed in his movement. Excellent rear drive. Just lacked the extra sparkle in the final line-up, RDCC.
2nd – Shaws’ CH Honeyhall Headboy - Gorgeous masculine head, nice length of neck placed onto good shoulders, held a level topline when on move, tail well set.
3rd – Lamb & Saltmarsh’s Bireslaw Fable of Macmoon ShCm
Veteran Dog (2,0abs)
1st – Smith’s CH Rocasovale Razzle Dazzle nearly 9 year old brindle shown with good coat of correct texture. Nice head and expression with good strong jaw. Nice length of neck, held a level topline on move.
2nd - Parkin’s Roachdee Mystery of the Full Moon slightly younger than 1st , red dog, showy with harsh coat, nicely balanced, but refused to move on the grass, hopping all the way round, so was difficult to ascertain his true movement.
Puppy Bitch (5,1abs)
1st –Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Moonstruck – This light red bitch had tremendous ring presence for a first show. Pretty head and appealing expression, has correct stop and nice dark eye. Good angulations, nice straight front, length of rib and loin in proportion to height. Moves with drive in rear, which helped her cover the ground with ease. BPIB plus Terrier Puppy Group 4 (Judge: Alan Small – Bethane)
2nd – Catto’s Nordcairn’s Peace of Mind at Bireslaw (IMP DNK) Dark brindle with another pretty head. Younger than 1st, would like a little more length of forearm, angulations ok, moved and showed well.
3rd – Miller’s Cornton Rosemaree
Junior Bitch (0,0abs)
Novice Bitch (0,0abs)
Post Graduate Bitch (6,1abs)
1st – Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Tommelise – Excellent head with very expressive eyes, good stop and eye of correct shape & colour. Nice length of neck, good, shoulders and rear angulation good which allowed for excellent rear movement. Nice overall size and correct bone. Shown in full coat. Handler managed to control her movement well once settled.
2nd – Owen’s Caldwell Carefree. Pretty head with dark points good stop and correct eye. Nice length of neck sits on good shoulder placement. Lost out to one on overall substance.
3rd – Berrecloth’s Sybster Sanderoma
Limit Bitch (3,0abs)
1st – Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Dizzee Rascal –Lovely red with gorgeous head and expression, good stop, dark eye of lovely shape, and correct sized dentition & bite. Good length of neck set on good lay of shoulder. Ribcage, correct shape, and nice length of loin. Holds a level topline on the move, tail well set. Good bend of stifle. Moves with drive. Unfortunate to come up against the BCC winner today RBCC.
2nd – Owen’s Caldwell Call the Shots – like her sister has a pretty head with dark points and good stop. Nice shoulders with good topline. Would prefer more body substance. Moved and showed well.
3rd – Percy’s Winetta Unforgettable
Open Bitch (1,0abs)
1st – Felters & Rumens CH Landbuck Jazz Hands JW – Wheaten with the most appealing head and her dark eyes give her a wonderful cheeky expression. Her neck flows into lovely shoulder placement, with correct angulations front and rear, lovely body with good ribcage, and all in proportion. Well-muscled hind quarters helped her drive from the rear, covering the ground effortlessly, moving with ease with her handler. Stood alone in her class, but shone and oozed class. So pleased to be able to award this girl BCC, BV and BOB.
