Crufts 2016

Birmingham NEC, 13th March 2016. Judge: Mr Brian Kerrush (Micklam).


"It was a great honour to be invited to judge my breed at Crufts. I should like to thank the sporting exhibitors for the wonderful entry, and my stewards, Miss K Lathaen and Mr D Franks for doing a superb job.
"Predictably, bitches were of better quality than dogs. Condition could improve; soft muscling in the hindquarters indicates lack of hard exercise and leads to poor movement. Presentation was quite good – in fact, excellent in some exhibits – but many peppers had poor jackets, with sparse guard hairs and a profusion of undercoat. Dentition was generally good, but some Continental visitors failed in this department – Dandies should have big teeth!"

Veteran Dog 1st: Buckley's Dentgate Celebration
Eight-year-old medium sized dog, well constructed and in good coat. Rather soft in expression and movement erratic when going away.
Dentgate Celebration

Puppy Dog 1st: Miller & Cox-Purcell's Puddockswell Augustus Magnussen
Promising and masculine young pepper with good length and strong head. Well-muscled neck, leading to good shoulders. Presented in good coat and moving well both ways. Should have a very bright future – Best Puppy.

2nd: Tinsley's Glahms Regal Canadian
Mustard youngster in good coat, moved well but much shorter than the winner and shorter in the muzzle than I like.
Glahms Regal Canadian

Junior Dog 1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman
Well-known pepper boy, of good length and low slung. Presented in good coat, but I would like a stronger head and I found him lacking in topline. Moved well both ways.
Borderstone Kingman
2nd: Wager's Inzievar Border Silver
Strong-headed masculine boy in good coat; he impressed when viewed from the side, but his movement was poor both ways and I would have liked more bone.
Inzievar Border Silver

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Johnson's Puddockswell My Dear Watson for Incantocani
Not the longest exhibit, but won this class on movement alone – excellent both ways. Masculine, strong head with good expression. Coat could have been better.
Puddockswell My Dear Watson for Incantocani
2nd: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay
Well-presented mustard in good coat. Large head, with good expression. Carrying a little too much condition and failed in rear movement.
Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay

Mustard boy who was rather unsettled. Pleasing expression, but presented in loose soft coat and not moving well either way.
Bettymac Dram O'Dalwhinnie

Limit Dog 1st: Kurg's Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
Well-known pepper boy with a very good head, great expression, long, low body and adequate movement, but his jacket left much to be desired.
Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
2nd: Bell's Hawkesmill Indigo from Reidswire
Pepper boy, half-brother to the class winner. Better coated, but not as good in head or topline and rather close behind.
Hawkesmill Indigo from Reidswire
3rd: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger
Well-presented mustard in excellent coat. Strong body, showing enough topline, but paid the price by lacking strength in skull and moving very close behind.
Pennywave Lone Ranger

Open Dog 1st: Eriksson's Ch/WW/CIB/No/Se/Dk Ch. Inzievar Wins Gold
A perfect visual aid to the standard. Starts with a great head - strong, masculine and with the best of expressions; well-muscled neck leading to excellent shoulders and forehand. Classic topline and good tail carriage, which stayed in place on the move. His movement was excellent both ways. If anything, his coat could have been better, but there was nothing to beat him – Dog CC.
Inzievar Wins Gold
2nd: Youngs's Inzievar The Goldsmith
Well-presented mustard, excels in construction and coat, excellent head, masculine expression and good topline. Moved well both ways. He is a credit to his handler and just lacked the maturity needed to steal the ticket – it will happen! Res CC.
Inzievar The Goldsmith
3rd: Tinsley's German Dandies' Terence Hill at Cloverwood
Well-exposed mustard dog of good make and shape with great head and masculine expression, first-class coat and presentation, but not moving as well behind as the first two.

Mustard girl; a fit, good mover, pleasing expression and excellent coat – a good example for her age.

2nd: Buckley's Puddockswell Sweet Phoebe
Similar to the winner, but failing in hind movement.
Puddockswell Sweet Phoebe
3rd: Kinsey-Morgan's Inzievar Gold Edition
Another mustard girl; not shown in the best of coats and needs to move better both ways.
Inzievar Gold Edition

Junior Bitch 1st: Bromley's Mishahda Vibrant Amber
Well-named mustard with a great hard double coat and deep colour. Good head and expression. I was drawn to her excellent topline and tail carriage. Movement ok, but she tends to lean out.
Mishahda Vibrant Amber
2nd: Buckley's German Dandies' Violetta
Another mustard with good head and expression. Moved ok but failed in topline – rather flat.
German Dandies' Violetta
3rd: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies Royal Dutch Emma
Similar to 2, but smaller; in good coat but needs time to settle on the move.

Sweet and feminine pepper. Good expression, good topline, excellent jacket and well presented. Moved and showed well.

Mustard with more substance than the winner, in good jacket but lacking in topline, moved well both ways, but carrying too much condition.

Limit Bitch 1st: Chapman-King's Inzievar Gold Spark
Super mustard in top coat. Beautiful colour and excellent presentation. Best of heads, excellent expression, good topline, correct tail carriage, which was maintained on the move. Movement true both ways and she pushed the ticket winner hard to win the Res CC.
Inzievar Gold Spark
2nd: Jacka-Slater's Cloverwood Duchess May
Another excellent mustard. Good expression and head, presented in good coat with good topline and excellent movement. She will make it, but is just a little immature at the moment.

Very feminine pepper with sweet expression. Moved well, but lacking coat condition.

Open Bitch 1st: Jarvis's Inzievar Summer Gold at Mosterlada
Lightly shown mustard with the best of heads and very feminine expression. Ideal conformation, classic topline, excellent jacket and correct tail carriage, which she kept on the move. Movement was true both ways. I was pleased to make her up on the day and, taking coat and condition into consideration, she shaded it over her brother for the top spot. CC and BOB.

2nd: Blixt's Se/No/Dk Ch. Inzievar Glittering Gold
A beautiful mustard bitch, new to me but took the eye easily. Well presented, with excellent head and expression, good shoulders and topline, tail set ok and moved well both ways.

3rd: Ray's Ch. Dentgate Sweet Symphony
Mustard with great head and very feminine expression; moved well but lacked the topline of the first two.
