Judge Rodney Oldham

1st Reilly Lisjovia Boris Bear at Darmaror, 11mo, well grown and masculine without excess, very well balanced, head is clean and well proportioned, dark brown eyes are of good shape,  gentle slope to stop and depth to muzzle, admired his front with width and straight limbs, sufficient neck and depth to chest, firm topline and gentle slope to croup, sound true mover in good coat, BP & RCC.

1st  Reilly Lisjovia Boris Bear at Darmaror. 2nd Downes  Rivergroves All The Right Moves, 14mo, coloured head developing well, head is well proportioned and cleanly laid out, eyes are almond shaped and dark giving typical expression, flat cheeks, minimal stop, depth to muzzle, reasonable front, ribcage developing, level topline and correct croup, gentle turn to stifle, easy true mover, well handled. 3rd Thorne Kricarno Konstellation at Pyrajay.

1st  Reilly Lisjovia Boris Bear at Darmaror. 2nd Duffell Kalkasi A Star Is Born of Ricaduffal, 2yo and developing well, head is well proportioned and masculine without being overdone,  skull is clean through, super dark eyes of good shape, and depth to muzzle, shoulders well laid, straight front with elbows held firm, ribcage could still fill a little more, level topline, uses tail well in action, would prefer a little more definition to stifles, free mover. 3rd Thorne Kricarno Konstellation at Pyrajay.

1st Spier Belshanmish Yellow River, really liked the shape and typical balanced outline of this 3yo, his head is masculine and very well laid out with clean skull, super shaped eyes of medium brown colour with black pigment surround, strength to muzzle, large nose leather, decent straight front, strong neck, deep well sprung ribcage, firm loin, excellent topline and croup, uses his tail well, gentle definition to stifle, clean hocks, moves true without dash, happy to award him what I understand was his second CC.  2ND Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham Charbiere Simply Magic at Chezanna, also good for type but felt he still has some maturing to do, masculine head is developing and would prefer eye a tad darker for preference, has a super straight front which he uses to advantage in action.  3rd Waters Sketrick Ojo.

1st Downes Pyrpressure’s My American Dream at Belshanmish, just turned 5yo, well balanced and presented, head is well laid out and clean through with dark eyes very well placed presenting a kind expression, minimal stop, broad chest with elbows held firm, strong neck, deep well sprung ribcage, good topline with gentle slope to croup, excellent turn to stifle, steady mover.  2nd Asher Granchester Imoulou, fairly typical headpiece with well placed dark eyes of good almond shape, reasonable front, excellent neck and carriage, just enough fill to ribcage, gentle turn to stifle, fair mover. 3rd Tadd Jacko Du Haras De Chante Neige Avec Kricarno.

1st Duffell Ricaduffal Rock Star, these two young ladies were both around 7mo but of very differing types and each maturing in their own way, at the moment Rock Star is a little more compact and consequently presents a more advanced outline, she possesses dark eyes which are well placed, good front assembly with elbows held firm, ribcage is developing well, topline needs to settle, slightly better definition to hindquarters just now, moves true enough both ways but does not quite have the ring confidence of Purdita, only time will tell.  2nd Waters Sketrick Purdita, having grown up on the leg means she now needs time to drop back into her substantial frame which is by no means a bad thing just requiring time and patience, lack of coat also leaves her looking rather like the gangly teenager, she too possesses a well placed dark eye, width to chest, firm elbows, scores in topline, gentle turn to stifle. 

1st Tadd Kricarno Kornish Kontessa, 15mo and very much at an in between stage of her development and shedding coat, ultra feminine and looking a little gangly today but has a solidly built frame to build on, super dark eye of good shape well placed, excellent all round good pigmentation, straight front but a shade narrow, arch to neck, ribs could still fill a little more, gentle turn to stifle, free mover.

1st Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham Charbiere Simply A Dream at Chezanna, very feminine and well balanced, clean head with super eye, flat cheeks, minimal stop with strength through muzzle, excellent front assembly, straight front down to good feet, strong neck, depth to well sprung ribcage, firm loin, hindquarters with well muscled thighs and good definition to stifles, gentle slope to croup giving tidy tail set and carriage, moves true, in quality coat well presented, CC & BOB which I understand completes her title.  2nd Ford Montimur Iris of the Storm , good for balance, just slightly preferred expression of 1, touch longer in muzzle with less fill, firm in ribs and body, definition to hindquarters, steps out steadily, RCC.  3rd Thorne Belshanmish Pretty In Pink at Pyrajay.
