 Judge - Miss Angela Calvert


May I take this opportunity to thank the Officers and Committee of the ESSC for the invitation to judge at this show and the hospitality extended to me on the day.  I should also like to thank the exhibitors for such a pleasing entry and for the sportsmanlike acceptance of my adjudications at my first Breed Club judging appointment. Thanks also to my ring Stewards who kept things running smoothly.

Class 1 MPD 6 1Ab.
What a very pleasing class to start off the day. Felt there was strength in depth for the future in this class.
1. Walker-Perfickly Frank With Dexbenella. Very promising puppy of 7 months. Dark eye, soft expression, reaches of neck into clean shoulder. Lovely deep and well upholstered body for age. Thought he held a good shape both stacked and moving. Promising boy.
2. Lawler-Roqfolly Devils Disciple. Another pleasing exhibit Many of same comments apply albeit he is of a different style. Settled on the move.
3. Tattersall-Alanea Kuga.

Class 2 PD 2
1. Corbett-Trimere Thriller. Really liked this youngster. I felt that he had everything in the right place and was of a very acceptable size. Masculine head and soft expression. Good depth of muzzle and an over all balanced appearance in head. Still loose and puppy like but super in side gait and shows promise for tomorrow. Correct bone all through and well angulated fore and aft. Clean and tidy in presentation. X factor boy and my BPIS today.
2. Lawler - Roqfolly Camp Harry. Placed in previous class. Giving away a little in development to 1 but still a very pleasing exhibit that needs time but was more settled in this class than in the previous one-all part of being a puppy.

Class 3 JD 3
1.Warrener - Cepen Changing Places With Waterwarren. From the delighted squeals when given a first place it had to be that this exhibit had attained his JW on the day and his owner and several of his supporters were obviously ‘thrilled'. Nearly threw it away with his naughty antics but that would have been too cruel  Well made exhibit and in good condition. Expression not the best but he is only young yet. Good reach of  neck into descent shoulder set up. A little more of him than I perhaps appreciate but he is all male and couldn't be denied Needs to settle on move but a hearty well done for today's achievements.
2.Richardson-Cherishym Bright Knight. Lighter eye than 1. Again, a little more of him for my liking. Well made but lost his topline on the move. Felt that with a little less coat he may achieve a better shape. Good legs and feet. Little long from hock to heel.
3.Cole-Greygoose Travelin Light.

3. Hancock-Carnmarth Countri Whispers at Hanknight.

Class 8 Limit Dog 4.
1. Allen & Bott - Trimere Talking Point of Allenie JW. He was the star of the show here today.

2. Walker-Graftonbury Navahoe at Dexbenella JW Sh.CM. Another lovely elder statesman. Different style to 1 . Kind expression with correct eye. Many similar comments apply as to 1 and yet again in terrific condition. Moved well. Hair splitting decision between these two.

MPB 7 (3 Ab)
1. Corbett-Trimere Tantrums and Tiaras. Sweet little girl with very appealing profile. Flowing lines from' tip to toe'.  Reachy neck, clean shoulder, deep rib.

2. Tattersall-Alanea Aquamarine. Baby out at her first show and another for whom the future will bring more confidence. Sweet head, lovely soft expression and nice skull shape. Reachy neck and good deeply ribbed body Carrying a little too much weight at this point but once she grows up a little I am sure she will be a very pleasant young lady.
3. Lawler-Roqfolly Dance To The Devil.

PB. 4 (3 Ab)
1. Corbett-Trimere Thrills and Frills. Stood alone here but another very pleasing youngster from this kennel. Pleased me in head and eye. Good neck and shoulders. Well off for body. On good legs and beautifully ‘manicured' feet. Needing to settle but very pleased with her.

Lovely soft expression, good depth of muzzle and nicely worked head with correct chiselling and fluting. Adequate neck into well layed shoulder. Well off for bone and tidy feet. Well-bodied and pleasant in profile. With time I feel she can only improve. Moved well.

Graduate Bitch 9 ( 3Ab)

1. Lawler-Roqfolly Balle Russe.  Really liked this bitch for style, type and quality. She really did take my eye. So well assembled from front to back. Super attractive head with soft expression and balance. Loved the way she looked back at me. Arched neck into good well angulated shoulder. Deep, well ribbed body and strong over loin. As well assembled behind as she was in front. I think this bitch will make a name for herself and certainly one I could have taken home. She will settle and when she does I think she will do well. Reserve Bitch today.
2. Willey-Arcadia Almeria. Smaller type of bitch but very pleasant to go over. Dark girl with balanced head and good expression. Well off for bone and body but just not as forward as winner.
3. Geddes-Gleadsbury Whatadaydream at Debanza.

Postgraduate Bitch 6.
A quality class these exhibits can and will change places.
1. Gibson-Calvdale Come Catch Me. Pleasing head and expression and the required dark eye of correct shape. Reachy neck when she chooses to show it off. Nicely assembled shoulder, deep rib and short couplings. Ample bone for size and well padded feet. In really good hard condition and well presented. To be critical I should like a shade less weight on her but she moved with drive and purpose to win the class.
2. Tattersall-Alanea Elegance. Small, sweet tri girl with lovely head and expression. Adequate neck and tidy shoulder. Deeply ribbed and strong through loin. Loved her style but today moving a little sluggishly and not putting in the effort.
3. Robinson-Baldragon Boozy Rouge.

Limit Bitch 7 (2Ab)
1.Cunliffe-Calvdale Fair Cop With Fallenleaf JW ShCM. Another pleasing class and winner had to pull out the stops. Pleasing bitch of correct size and good overall shape. Carries herself well and moves with purpose and style and that won her the class here today against some good competition. What you see is what you get. Well assembled all through with deep rib and short couplings. Short from hock to heel and moved out well.
2. Savell-Petranella Perfickly Dealt JW. Again another I liked very much from this kennel and found her very pleasing to go over. Sweet balanced head with soft expression. Deep muzzle and good length of neck. Well angulated front and rear and had that all important strong middle piece. Could have been my winner but just didn't want to put all in today.
3. Willey-Calvdale Ask No Questions JW

Open Bitch5 (1Ab)
A difficult class in as much as the styles differed greatly, which made comparison somewhat difficult. Another day placings may well be different.
1. Robinson-Baldragon Bollinger. Bitch in good condition and well prepared. Dark headed with lovely soft expression and correctly shaped dark eye. Well put together if a little longer cast than 2.
2. Corbett-Trimere Tigra. Quality tri bitch with an old fashioned stamp about her. Good head, neck and shoulder but just needing to develop in her middle to complete a pleasing picture in profile. Long striding bitch that was, I felt, a little inhibited in this indoor ring.
3. Williams and Toublic-Cobhay Bright Fuchsia.

Special Beginners Bitch 3.
1. Richardson Cherishym Bright  Star
2. Wilson - Meadowdale Shooting Star
3. Richardson-Cherishym Bright Crystal
