LISKEARD & DISTRICT CA OPEN SHOW

JUNIOR: (7)
1) Gladwells DANFREBEK ARTIC DESIGN FOR JOTARS
14 month old blue merle dog who i have judged before quite recently, today he could not be beaten. Clear silvery blue jacket, nice size and bone, he is masculine without any trace of coarseness. Elegant one piece head with well formed chin and a clean stop. Excellent eye shape and placement giving a sweet, intelligent alert expression. Uses his ears well, he is very attentive to his handler. Arched neck but needs more time to mature in hind angulation. I look forward to seeing him as an adult. Today's wins gave him his Junior Warrant, well done. BEST OF BREED.

) Wilson's VALLEYHAVEN LET'S CELEBRATE
9 month old tricolour bitch who is very mature in body construction, moving around the ring with more drive and fluidity than most adults, and this won her placing here. Her jet black tricolour coat and lovely full white collar were immaculately presented. Super length of body and neck, short hocks and the very best of feet. Her head needs time to mature, confident showgirl. BEST PUPPY AND LATER RESERVE BEST PUPPY IN SHOW............WELL DONE..!!!!!
3) Thomson's LADNAR DIAMONDS 'R' FOREVER
GRADUATE (7)
1) D.ARTIC DESIGN FOR J
2) Stevens LEKOY LUCY TOO.
Plenty of substance to this pretty bright golden sable girl. Lovely moulding to her clean balanced head with well placed stop, flat skull, and dark eye giving a very feminine expression. Would just prefer a more obliquely set eye which is where she lost out to the dog. Lovely bend of stifle and strong hocks created a pleasing outline and she moved positively holding her topline. She looked better as the day progressed and pressed the winner hard. RESERVE BEST OF BREED
3) Brown and Payne's CARRISWILLOW MY FIRST WISH
POST GRADUATE (7)
1) D. ARTIC DESIGN FOR J
2) L LUCY TOO
3) Wooldridge's WATERFLOWS TRUE COMPANION. Petite shaded sable lady whose super outline and flowing movement command attention. Born showgirl, obviously adores her handler. Head lacks that touch of refinemet and length i look for, but she has a certain charm that is hard to resist. Alert inquisitive expression.

OPEN DOG (3:1A)
1) D. ARTIC DESIGN FOR J
2) Avery's LYNVIEWS MATT DYLAN. Superb head and expression on this shaded sable dog, and he shows his socks off. Unfortunately he does not have the quality of conformation i am looking for.
OPEN BITCH (3)
1) Stevens LEKOY MARBLES MAIDEN JW SHCM
Ultra feminine richly coloured sable girl. Ideal combination of substance and femininity. Gorgeous expression from the darkest of eye, enhanced by super ears. Very attentive showgirl. Correct length to height ratio gives her a very attractive shape, finished with a nice bend of stifle and short hocks. Moves very well for her seven years. Gave way to the youngsters for Best of Breed but was not disgraced, a lovely girl.
2) Avery's LYNVIEW MISS DAISY.
Another i have judged recently. She has the most charming head and expression and is a none stop showgirl. Preferred overall length and balance of the winner.
3) Gladwell's JOTARS CLASSICAL WISH.
