Scottish Breeds Championship Dog Show 2018
VD (1) 1, Williams' Ch Foxearth Forward Thinking For Mcclelland, beautifully balanced sh/s, handsome head, neat dark almond-shaped eyes, well placed alert ears, strong neck set into well angulated shoulders, balanced substantial body, stands well on good legs and tight feet, moved freely with excellent reach & drive, CC. Was delighted to learn that he later went Best Veteran in Show.
JD (1) 1 Vickery & Lusty's Blamorder Bero Bear, not the best of heads, with poorly tipped ears & lacking stop, body narrow all through and upright in shoulder, moved very close behind as his construction would suggest and plaited in front.
OD (4, 2) 1, Kinsey & Road's Ch Sturtmoor Dream Of Kasvelyn, attractive 3 yo s/w, balanced head whose neat dark eyes and well placed alert ears give a most handsome expression, strong neck, well laid shoulder, balanced body, nice rise over the loins, good rear angulation,, well carried tail, altogether a very pleasing dog, RCC. 2, Williams' Ch Mcclelland Hotter Than Hell, 7 yo s/w, sired by the winner of Veteran but carrying his age much less well, pleasing head & expression, well placed alert ears, strong neck but heavy over the shoulders & lacking elegance, strong topline, well rounded quarters, moved soundly.
VB (1) 1 Lusty's Juniperwood Just A Dream, attractive girl, delightful feminine head, her dark eyes & well placed ears combine to give a magical expression, nicely balanced body, well laid shoulder, excellent topline, good rise over the loin, fluent action with good reach & drive.
PB (2) 1, Fort's Shulune Imperial Design, scrumptious s/w puppy, glorious head & expression, dark eyes, well placed ears which she uses all the time, good neck flowing into well laid shoulders, excellent balance, presented in lovely coat & condition, moved with fluency & style, must have a very bright future, BP. 2, Johnston's Foxearth Full Moon, what a pretty bitch! Glorious head, neat dark almond-shaped eyes, well placed alert ears, nicely angulated shoulder. Her body is slightly rangy at the moment & she needs time to fill her frame and to mature, but she has such promise! All she and her owner need is time but they have that in abundance, when she matures she will trouble the best!
JB (1) 1 French's Wynele Alice Blue Gown With Breckamore, strikingly beautiful b/m , well balanced head, neat eyes, well placed alert ears, strong neck set in well laid shoulders, excellent topline with graceful rise over the loin, tail well set & carried, glorious blue jacket with attractive markings, easily the best mover of the day, good reach & drive & wonderful fluency in profile. An outstanding bitch who reminded me so much of Frank & Lillian Mitchell's Ch Astrellita Blue Movie of Glenmist; I cannot pay her a greater compliment, CC & BOB.
PGB (2) 1 Flower's Breckamore Butterfingers, tri with pretty head, well placed alert ears, neat eyes which could have been a shade darker to advantage, balanced body, excellent angulation, strong topline, moved well. 2, Meacham's Blamorder Curly Wurly Girly At Zellamere, similar to Butterfingers in head & expression, nice eyes & ears, slightly rangy in body, somewhat erratic on the move.
LB (1)1 Lusty, Williams & Hutchings' Blamorder Ice Cream Dream, attractive b/m, clear blue colour & neat markings, pretty head, neat eyes & well placed ears giving a delightful expression, strong neck, firm topline, rounded quarters, tail well set & carried, moved with fluency style, RCC.
OB (4) 1, French's Breckamore Blossom, excellent sh/s who put me in mind of the old Crossfells sables, lovely balanced head, neat dark eyes, well placed ears, super flow from the neck into the well laid shoulders, strong topline with gentle rise over the loin, brisk fluent action. 2, Fort's Shulune Imperial Storm, pretty tri, balanced head, dark eyes, well placed ears, nicely conditioned body, good angulation, moved well. 3, Lusty's Juniperwood Just A Dream.
