I would like to thank the Officers and Committee for giving me the opportunity to Judge the prestigious Parent Club show.  I was so honoured to judge and was delighted with the entry unfortunately the weather had to be unkind and I had a few absentees.  But I must thank all who entered and also who came and supported me.  I really enjoyed the dogs and found many I liked very much with lovely breed type, good weight, substance, muscle tone and nice presentation were all evident

Minor Puppy Dog (4,1)
1 Mrs H Cokell - Trimere Transition To Carlyquinn
gorgeous 7 month old L/W. Lovely to look at from across the ring and even nicer when you get your hands on him. Attractive head and expression, with a lovely kind eye, which are nice and dark for his age. Superb front angulation with great depth of chest. Good reach of neck into a well developed body with a lovely spring of rib, however no more weight is required. Nice rear quarters with plenty of muscle which enabled him to drive effortlessly around the ring. Sound mover from the front but does need to tighten a little behind, but what do you expect from a baby? I am positive this will correct itself as he matures. Presented to perfection. Best Puppy Dog. In the challenge for Best Puppy he did not put a foot wrong and it was my pleasure to award him BEST PUPPY IN SHOW. He is a definite boy to watch for the future and I will with interest. I am sure he will have a wonderful show career
2 Mrs C House - Gleadsbury Whats His Name
another lovely boy but bigger build than 1 and just a little heavy for me. A stylish dog to look at from across the ring and does demand attention. Good head, just a little too much for me.  I would prefer more front angulation. Lovely spring of rib and well bodied. Excellent rear quarters with wonderful muscle tone.  Great bone and nice tight feet.  Moved well back and forth.  Presented excellently in a gleaming L/W jacket
3 Mr & Mrs Wildsmith - Trimere Time Trail With Sanibeck

Puppy Dog (3,2)
1 Mrs C House - Gleadsbury Whats His Name

Junior Dog (1,0)
1 Mr & Mrs Happs - Jorobaden Alderniti Of Emianna
13 months old. A lovely overall balanced dog of good height to length, presented in dark L/W jacket with good feathering.  Lovely head and expression, nice balance and well chiselled.  Eyes need to darken a fraction but will come with age. Nice strong neck leading into well laid back shoulders.  Good front angulation with a lovely deep chest which carries all the way through to his body. Good spring of rib. Excellent hind quarters, again with lovely muscle tone. Well set tail which was never carried to high. Well boned legs, short hocks and neat feet.  Moved powerfully around the ring with drive, very sound. Was in my mind for reserve best dog, but was unfortunate to meet the big boys at the top

Novice Dog (2,1)
1 Mrs C House - Gleadsbury Whats His Name

Tyro Dog (1,0)
1 Mr & Mrs Cole - Greygoose Travelin Light
2 year old L/W dog in good condition. A dog which is slightly on the bigger side for me but he still has a lot of qualities. Nice head with a kind, gentle expression. Fraction short of neck but lays well into shoulders, well bodied and ribbed.  Correct bend of stifle well developed muscles and bone and tight feet.  Moved well but would prefer a little more rear drive. Presented well

Graduate Dog (2,2)

Post Graduate Dog (6,2)
1 Mr & Mrs Warrener - Cepen Changing Places For Waterswarren
a dog that I have seen from the ringside before and have never thought too highly of. However, he is defiantly a dog you need to go over to appreciate his fortunes. Yes, his head may not be his fortune and is a definite point about him that I don't like but he has excellent front angulation, with deep chest, strong, good length of neck into well laid shoulders, firm topline over a well ribbed and deep body. Well boned legs, with lovely tight feet. Excellent rear angulation with muscle tone which allowed him to move with superb drive and very soundly. Presented 1st class in a glossy L/W coat with lovely feathering
2 Mr & Mrs Whitley - Shipden Will Hay
a dog that I have done well before, and today looked good in a superbly presented B/W jacket. He has all the same attributes as the 1st dog, but today just did not seem to want to move as well as I have seen him do before, would have liked more drive which I know he can produce

Open Dog (2,0)
1 Allen & Bott - Sh Ch Trimere Talking Point Of Allenie JW
Well what can I say about this class? Only two in it, but those two happened to be the two top dogs in the country!! Wow! It was an absolute honour to judge this class and I would like to thank you both so very much for entering under me. Both are absolutely stunning dogs!
This boy has been under me before where I gave him Best of Breed at Bath 2 years ago and I thought he was pretty much perfect then, I was wrong! He has now matured even more and has grown into superb example of our breed.  From across the ring he demands all attention and I just couldn't take my eyes off of him. To go over him is a delight; he has the most exquisite head with a lovely kind eye and melting expression with well set ears.  Lovely strong, arched neck into well laid back shoulders, with great front angulation. Superb depth of chest, which carries into well sprung ribs set well back with nice short loin. Lovely bend of stifle, well muscled with nice short hocks. Super bone and nice tight feet.  Moved like a dream around the ring with a powerful stride and so sound both coming and going. He had to pull out all the stops to beat 2nd today and that he did with maturity on his side. Thank you very much for coming. It was a pleasure to award him Best Dog and then BEST IN SHOW over the beautiful bitch.
2 Mrs A Corbett - Sh Ch Trimere Thirller
well what can I say about this boy that hasn't been said in his short lustrous show career? I have loved him since I saw him as a puppy and he has just got better and better. Again he is so stylish to look at from the side and wonderful to go over.  He has a gorgeous head, which is so well balanced, lovely eye, which does need to darken slightly but he is still only young. Strong, muscular neck laying in well laid back shoulders, giving him excellent front angulation, with a lovely deep chest. Nice firm level topline, with good body, ribs need to fill out a little more, but this will defiantly come with age. Ribs well back into nice short loin. Moderately bent stifle with lovely short hocks. Tail set nicely and never carried higher than his back. Moved with such power and drive, but I feel if he had a bigger ring his movement would have excelled even more. Again presented 1st class in a gleaming L/W jacket. Today lost out to the 1st on maturity overall and was Reserve Best Dog but on another day once he has matured, who knows? I can only imagine how the breeder must feel to have bred these two exceptionally stunning dogs.

2 Mr & Mrs Whitley - Shipden Will Hay
3 Mr & Mrs Happs - Beresford Beat The Clock

Veteran Dog (2,1)
1 Williams & Toublic - Cobhay Sweet William
9 ½ year old L/W dog who still goes round the ring like he was 2. A boy that I have always like and has aged into a lovely old man still looking good. Very nice outline, with everything in the right place. Lovely head, well chiselled, balanced with a beautiful expression. Good reach of neck. Well angulated front with a great depth of chest. Good strong body with well sprung ribs. Great rear angulation which is well muscled which enables him to move around the ring with great drive and so soundly.  Nicely boned legs with tight feet. In excellent coat presentation and condition. BEST VETERAN IN SHOW


Minor Puppy Bitch (3,1)
1 Mrs C Savell - Harvancourt Perfickly Fab With Petranella
charming 7month old with a lovely outline and refined head well chiselled.  Looks nice on the stance and lovely to go over, nice angles, very deep chest for age with good depth of body and well sprung ribs, presented in nice coat with feathering coming, good legs and feet and moved really well and soundly.
2 Mrs A Corbett - Trimere Tranquiliser
Really liked this 6.5 months outline and beautiful shape.  Sweet head and expression with good work and well balanced.  In nice body condition with substance but is a real baby and needs a little more time to develop and tighten on the move.  Good legs and feet and well presented

Puppy Bitch (4,4)

Junior (3,3)

Novice (3,3)

Tyro Bitch (3,1)
1 Mr Hollender - Melvemere Gold Seal At Scoutwell
19 month old feminine L/W. Lovely girl with a soft head and expression with nice dark eyes. Good to go over with good front and back end. Stylish to look at from the side with a nice outline but she is inclined to slope her topline occasionally so her handler must be aware of this.  Moved very well, with lovely drive and very sound. Now just starting to become in good coat
2 Mr & Mrs Warrener - Dexbenella Gracie May For Waterswarren
a nearly 2 year olf L/WT. Very bitch pretty with lovely head and expression.  For me I would like a bit more front angulation and depth of chest.  She has a lovely spring of rib with a nice amount of weight. Again she is another girl who is inclined to slope her topline fractionally. Good rear angulation with a nice turn of stifle.  Moved well and soundly. Just a little out of coat at the moment.

Graduate Bitch (7,2)
1 Mrs A Corbett - Trimere Tantrums and Tiaras
A 2 year old L/W bitch that I have not really noticed before until today. She has the most beautiful outline which is so very typical of this Kennel. A stunning head and expression with lovely kind eyes. So nice to go over with a lovely front and depth of chest with a good spring of rib. She holds a lovely level topline on the stance and on the move. Fabulous legs and tight feet with lovely bone. Good back end with a nice turn of stifle leading into nice short hocks. Again presented excellently as per usual from this Kennel. She moved around the ring with plenty of drive and very sound, she decided to play her handler up a little but this could not stop her from winning this lovely class and ending up Reserve Best Bitch.
2 Mr & Mrs Osbourne - Petranella Casts A Spell Over Braego
This young bitch is one that I have liked since a puppy and have always watched her with interest. Again she has a lovely outline and doesn't disappoint when you go over her.  Feminine head and expression with a lovely dark eye. Arched neck leading into well laid back shoulders. Another who has a lovely depth of chest and good body to go over. Good level topline. Well set tail which never rose above the level of her back. Coming into good coat. The only thing she lacked today was a little enthusiasm on the move, she didn't seem to put her all into it and lacked a little drive and this swayed my decision between 1st & 2nd.
3 Mr Hollender - Melvemere Gold Seal At Scoutwell
4 Mr & Mrs Wilson - Meadowdale Venus At Cassapple
5 Mr & Mrs Warrener - Dexbenella Gracie May For Waterswarren

Post Graduate Bitch (9,3)
1 Mrs C Savell - Petranella Bloomin Lovely
and she sure is!!! I have loved this bitch from the first time I saw her and gave her BPIB at Bath and my feelings on her still have not changed. She has the most exquisite head and expression with a beautiful kind eye. She is wonderful to go over with everything in the correct place. Lovely front angluation with well laid back shoulders.  Great body with a nice level topline.  Good boned legs and tight feet.  Well muscled behind. She is beautiful to look at from the side and does demand attention.  Moves well, but can be a fraction wide a front. She is coming into good coat and was presented to perfection. Very close to getting reserve best bitch.
2 Mr & Mrs Warrener - Trimere Tease N Please For Waterswarren
2 year old.  Very different to 1 but has similar qualities. She has a lovely outline and is very striking to look at.  Again she has a lovely head with nice dark eyes. Strong, well arched neck leading into well laid back shoulders.  Fabulous front angulation and good depth of chest.  Good firm topline over well sprung ribs. Good angulation behind with enough muscle tone.  Moved extremely well with plenty of drive and was very sound.  In lovely coat and condition but for me her coat is little too ticked on the body which slightly swayed my decision.
3 Williams & Toublic - Cobhay Precious Polyantha
4 Mr & Mrs Wilson - Meadowdale Shooting Star
5 Mr & Mrs Wilson - Meadowdale Venus At Cassapple

Limit Bitch ( 4,0)
1 Mrs C Savell - Petranella Perfickly Dealt JW ShCM
I have done her well in the past, but I don't think I have ever seen her look as good as she has today!! As soon as she entered the ring she caught my attention. Presented in a gleaming L/W coat. I loved her overall balance and style. Her head is a beautiful shape with lovely chiselling and fluting with pretty expression.  Good length of neck. Excellent well laid shoulders with great angluation and depth of chest.  Good sprung ribs with a lovely firm topline on the stance and on the move. Well turned stifle with great muscle tone and lovely short hocks.  Absolutely flew around the ring today with plenty of drive and so, so sound, excellently handled.  She could not be denied Best Bitch and Reserve Best In Show to the beautiful dog
2 Mrs C House - Gleadsbury Whataliberty JW
another very pretty bitch, so very nice to put your hands on and go over.  Has all the true breed points, super head well defined, lovely neck and shoulders, firm topline and well ribbed and bodied with good depth.  Lovely balanced outline of height to length.  Well presented coat, moved with a good stride and was sound.  Hard decision between these two
3 Williams & Toublic - Cobhay Precious Polyantha
4 Mr & Mrs Guest - Robil Greta Garbo

Open Bitch (3,2)
1 Williams & Toublic - Cobhay Bright Fuchsia
now in her 5th year this bitch has developed over the past few months.  Well balanced head, nice expression, well set ears.  Good neck and shoulders, firm topline and well bodied with good spring of rib and nice substance. Enough angulation both end, with super straight well boned legs and tight feet.   Has been out of coat for a long time and looks so much better now with her gleaming L/W coat and feathering coming.  Moved out with drive and is sound both ends.

Special Beginners Bitch (3,1)
1 Mr & Mrs Warrener - Trimere Tease N Please For Waterswarren
2 Mrs H Cokell - Trimere Thrills and Frills JW
another very nice bitch from this successful kennel.  Very attractive and feminine, today spoilt her outline and movement by being overweight.  Sweet balanced head with lovely chiselling.  Super neck to shoulders and topline, deep body just too much weight for advantage.  Lovely coat and presentation, good legs and feet.  Movement a little laboured and unsettled.

Veteran Bitch (4,1)
1 Mr & Mrs Evans - Feorlig Burnt Embers
Now 7 years old, she has what I look for in a head with correct expression, a gorgeous shape with lovely chiselling and fluting, super dark eyes and kind intelligent expression, great ear set.  Such a lovely outline and correct overall balance with substance.  Nice arched neck and well laid shoulders, still holds a firm topline and nice carried tail, good depth of chest and well angulated front and hindquarters which are well muscled. Straight legs and tight feet.  Stood and moved out today with drive and so so sound.
2 Williams & Toublic - Sericum Made In Heaven At Cobhay
at 12 years of age this lovely bitch is still holding her own.  Lovely in stance and outline, and has a great character.   Nice feminine head and expression, eye colour good for her age.  In good body weight with well sprung ribs, lovely depth and still well muscled.  Presented well in good L/W coat with lovely feathering.  Moved out soundly and so well for her age
