The noise in the hall affected younger exhibits today, two Rottweiler fighting at the ringside plus a door constantly banging did nothing to give confidence to puppies that are vulnerable being judged on a table at the best of times. I am sure the three puppies could change places given different circumstances.
1) Malones CANDERSIDE CHASE THE SOMMER. Oh so confident young sable lady in possession of a beguilingly sweet expression. When she lifted those ears, she could charm the birds from the trees! Pretty head pattern, nice size. Still needs time to mature in body shape but moved out confidently. BPIB
2) Russells TUFFEIGHA MOONWEAVER. A very close decision here as I really liked this tricolour. Had the most glorious rear angulation and neck and here he scored over the class winner. A little unsettled by the proceedings which showed in his expression today but a very nice baby, would like to meet him out on the grass
3) Webbs TUFFEIGHA WINE-N-ROSES. Tricolour litter sister and very similar in type, not quite the bend of stifle of her sibling.
1) Clegrams SMIDDYSHAWS SHES THE ONE and she was certainly the one today! Tricolour bitch with that wonderful elegance of conformation I find so irresistible. From her arch of neck to the sweep of loin and stifle, she is every inch the well heeled lady. Moved effortlessly and with style. Good head type, very clean and moulded, bright expressive eyes. Pleased to award her BOB, well done.
2) Harbrons RANNERDALE SHADOW BLASTER. Lovely boy showing off a wonderful bright, intelligent masculine expression. Well moulded head with fabulous finish to his chin. Nicely constructed and moved out really well. Unsettled by the noisy hall but his quality could not be denied and this elevated him to RBOB.
1) Harbrons RANNERDALE THE RED BARON Sh CM Bright red sable boy who certainly belies his age, still in possession of a super head and he oozes character, such a show off! A little shorter in body and could not quite match the youngsters on the move.
2) Clegrams SYLGEST CHANTILLY LACE. Tricolour bitch of eleven years and she still has a full set of dazzling white teeth. I loved her head type. Dam of my Best of Breed winner.
