NEC Birmingham, 14th December 2019. Judge: Mr David Winsley (Davmar)

It was a pleasure to judge this breed who all had lovely temperaments. I found many lacked the correct spring of rib and body condition. Movement in many needs to improve. Coats were variable.

Best Puppy Poole's Hawkesmill Merlon

Puppy Dog 1st: Poole's Hawkesmill Merlon
I like this boy very much, nice size for his age. He has the correct outline and body shape. His head is typical of the breed with large eyes, correct length proportions and well filled muzzle. Muscular neck, good shoulders and straight front. Low to ground, nice body condition with the correct spring of ribs. Correct topline with no exaggeration. Good bone, nice coat, moved soundly especially behind. A happy showman. BP.
2nd: Kerle's Puddockswell Hoodwink
Not as good in outline as first. Nice head shape, good eye and ears. Good neck, would prefer him to have a better front. Nicely made body with nice ribbing. Good turn of stifle and correct tailset. Moving quite well behind, in a nice quality coat.
3rd: Deegan's Deegandan Keeping Faith
Res: Kidd's Thystine Loganberries with Freestone

Junior Dog 1st: Sutton & Desfontaines's Cofgodas Northern Spy
He has a nice head with a pleasing round eye and strong foreface, ears a little thick. Good neck, would prefer better shoulder angulation. Mature body, with good spring of rib and low, strong hindquarters. Moving very well behind, in a good quality coat and showed well.
2nd: Kidd's Thystine Loganberries with Freestone
Was reserve in puppy, he is nice in head with that special look the breed has. Good overall shape, with a good body, good spring of ribs and good bone. Correct tail set and carriage. Finally decided to walk for his owner and show off his sound movement.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Webber's Lilyphanie Great Showman
Nice mustard boy who has a nicely balanced head, correct expression and uses his ears well. Strongly made neck, nice shoulder angulation with one of the better fronts I found today. I liked his balanced outline, good body with a good spring of rib. Nice turn of stifle with a correct tailset. He has a quality coat, showed and moved very well.

Limit Dog 1st: Brown's Great Gatsby ze Zihelske Zahrady
Pepper who has a nice outline standing but tends to flatten on the move. Pleasing head for proportions and eye. Good front with a good forechest. He has a good body with a good spring of rib and depth. Well made hindquarters which he uses well. He has a very nice coat and showed well.
2nd: Bell's Reidswire Lord O'Liddesdale
This boy has a very nice outline, again he has a pleasing head & strong neck. Lost out to first in front. He has a nice turn of stifle with a good tailset, tend to carry his tail a little high. In a good quality coat.

Open Dog 1st: Chapman-King's Inzievar Gold Issue
This mustard is very nice for type and outline. He has a good head, correct proportions with a good round eye and well filled muzzle. I found the amount of his topknot rather excessive. Good muscular neck, good shoulder angulation and straight front, hair on his front legs a little short. Excellent body shape with the required spring of rib, flexible loin. Nice turn of stifle, tailset correct but does tend to fly his tail on the move. Has a wonderful hard even coat. Showed well. CC.
2nd: Deacon & Hill's Ch./Am GCh. Pennywise On The Road Again
Slightly smaller type than first. He has a good outline with a pleasing head, correct eye and well placed ears. Correct body shape but I found him lacking in body condition and spring of rib for me. Showed well as usual, in pleasing coat.
3rd: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies River Mersey at Lenacourt
Res: Booth's Ch. Borderstone Kingman for Lannia

Puppy Bitch 1st: Jacka-Slater's Partoncourt Show Me Heaven
Won this class as she is more finished than second. She has a nice outline and is low to ground. Good head and expression, nice in front with enough forechest. Would prefer if she carried more body, nice in hindquarters and moved quite well. In a nice coat.
2nd: Moult's Hawkesmill Meg for Zamdilsa
Very much the baby. She has a nice head for her age. She has a very well made body, outline not defined yet, nicely made hindquarters. Nicely presented, happy mover and showed well.

Junior Bitch 1st: McGuinness's Diamondandie Black Diamond
I liked this Pepper enough to award her the RCC. Nice size and balanced shape, correct topline. She has a nice head, good expressive eye, correctly placed ears. Good in neck, shoulders and front. She has a well made body with good condition, has good strong hindquarters which she knows how to use. In a very good quality coat.
2nd: Allan's Cloverwood Saffron avec Clairmorin
A nice overall shape, has a very pretty feminine head. Pleasing head with the correct shape and colour. Nice body with a good spring of rib. Moved and showed steadily, happy girl.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: McGuinness's Diamondandie Blue Sapphire
Mustard who has a nice overall balance and shape. She has a nice head with a good expression, good in neck, shoulders and front. Her body is well made and would benefit from carrying more body. Well made hindquarters with a good turn of stifle, correct tailset and carriage. Showed well. Litter sister to the Junior winner.
2nd: Wilson's Morawelon Cader Idris
Looked the winner to start with but lost out to first in outline. Nice head but just too much topknot for balance. She has a good neck and shoulders, nice front, well made body with a good spring of rib. Moves nicely behind and in a nicely presented coat.
3rd: Deegan's Dariant I'Bastet of Deegandan
Res: Brown's Henrietta Harris ze Zihelske Zahrady

Limit Bitch 1st: McGuinness's Siwop Secret Wish
Mustard who was lacking in furnishings. She is the dam of the previous two class winners. She has a good outline, pleasing in head and expression. Mature in body, in good condition. Her coat is short but of a hard texture. Moves nicely both ways and shows well.

Open Bitch 1st: Milton's Ch. Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit
I have judged this girl before in groups when she has taken my eye. I liked her size and balanced outline, not exaggerated at all. Very nice feminine head, good eye and clean jaws. Well made neck, good shoulder angulation, mature body with correct spring of ribs. Correct fall away over the loin to her tail which she carries correctly. Well made hindquarters. In first class coat and condition, showed very nicely to win the CC and BOB.
2nd: France's Miss Sophie di Luna Caprese at Torbrae
Nice type mustard, she has a nice head with a feminine expression. Good neck and shoulders, she has a nice mature body and good outline. In a nicely presented quality coat. Just moving rather close today moving away.
