Judge : Mrs Sheila Jakeman
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

I was pleased with the entry today with some good quality exhibits on show. Presentation throughout was first class. I do not see the permitted reverse scissor bite in this breed as an excuse for poor dentition so I was pleased to see a good number of exhibits with correctly aligned incisors which were forming fairly tight reverse bites. Thank you to my two efficient stewards and the Society for the invitation, always a pleasure.

Minor Puppy Dog
1stMifcahs The Young PretenderAlmost 9 mths and well grown with a very nice coat coming along. Good mouth of decent width, correct length of muzzle, decent skull and good neck. Well sprung in rib and has nice bone carried himself nicely and moved true.
2ndHot Chilli Sweet AddictAt 7 months this one was not quite as confident or mature of course. Nicely headed with neat ears, might his muzzle lengthen a bit. Good neck & topline, lighter built than one. Steady on the move.

Puppy Dog
1stCremefern Trigger A Storm At SymarajuOf good size and with nice gold/white jacket. Darkest of eyes & pigmentation. Nice width of muzzle and skull and well off for neck, lovely topline and correct high tail carriage. Positive in front construction which meant he moved really nicely.
2ndSantosha Dark Secret With CoursaniJacket in lovely condition. Very nice outline and stylish overall. Pleasing topline but tail could raise just a bit more. Not quite as positive on the move as the winner.

Limit Dog
1stShalehan YasheronGold/white in lovely sparkling jacket. Carries himself beautifully and is impressive to go over as he is so sound all through lovely in head with good mouth, excellent neck and well sprung ribbing. Lovely topline, excellent tail carriage all supported on well made legs and feet which carried him around the ring in great style. CC & BOB
2ndSantosha Polar StarThis lovely black & white pushed the winner hard here as he is so similar in make and shape. Very well balanced with quality beautifully presented jacket. Great head with good mouth and well shaped skull. Excellent ribbing and good topline and tail. Moved nicely. Res CC

Open Dog
1stDaltricia Jamie Lee JWI judged this boy at one of his first shows and loved him then and still feel he is a great exhibit. Another black & white in great coat. Well constructed all through, very good head and pigmentation. His topline and tail are excellent and he is compact with good length of ribbing. Well muscled and moving nicely. Unlucky to meet the limit 1st
2ndDebeaux Having A BallFirst impression of this black is he is small but this is the usual illusion caused by his colour. Very well balanced with good outline and pleasing head with good muzzle and skull and neat ears. Well sprung in body and nicely made front and rear. Good on the move.

Minor Puppy Bitch
1stShirkeira TalulaA pretty parti-colour whose coat is coming in really nicely. Lovely head with balance of muzzle to skull, good pigmentation and pleasing mouth though one tooth has to catch up. Pleasing neck and sturdy body with good topline and correct tail carriage. Well made shoulders and good on the move in both directions. BP
2ndDebeaux Say What You CeeThis black has a nice outline and good expression. Topline and tail are just fine and she moved around well but would like her better in front, satisfactory rear action.

Pleasing neck and sturdy body with good topline and correct tail carriage. Well made shoulders and good on the move in both directions. BP
2ndMatsuba Crowning GloryThis one was just a bit overawed by the occasion but is of nice type with good head, nice front, well sprung lengthy ribcage and is nicely boned. Moved OK.

Junior Bitch
1stZeeva Mirror ImageDeep gold parti-colour in lovely jacket. Pleasing outline with nice neck supporting head with good skull and lovely dark eyes. Well off for bone and good ribs. Tail could give a bit more lift. Moved nicely in both directions.
2ndPeekin Hoi-Tee-Toi-Tee-TuSimilar colour to winner. A shade longer in body, nice head with distinct white blaze. Top line and tail are fine and she has well made shoulders and front. Was not sure she was 100% sound on the move though foot fall was in the correct places.

Novice Bitch
1stChanikos Pocket Full O Dreams for ShanjoraPretty coat of good length. Nicely balanced with excellent top line. All head features are pleasing and she was nice on the move once she settled to the task.

Yearling Bitch
1stEthelsmead Connie FrancisBlack & white with pattern which appeals. Lovely type head with best of muzzle and skull correlation. Super mouth and excellent dark eyes. Beautifully made all through and well carried tail. Really super on the move, must have a great future. Res CC.
2ndSantosha Ice Queen of Coursani.Another really pleasing exhibit who was so close up to the winner. Super deep gold colour contrasting well with the white. Beautifully balanced with just slight differences in head features compared with the winner. Moved really well too.

Post Graduate Bitch
1stChanikos My Wildest DreamLovely well presented jacket, this one is on the big side but is very stylish and a good shape. Lovely head with width to her dentition and a good bite. Pleasing muzzle and skull, dark eyes and nice neck. Level topline but sometimes a bit lazy with her tail. Moved particularly well.
2ndMarhilway Spirited EdgeLovely dark gold & white. Super head and expression, level topline and well carried tail. Good spring to her ribcage and nice on the move.

Limit Bitch
1stMarpalyn Phab GoldIf Phab is meant to mean fabulous then it is a very apt description for this ones jacket. Just stunning. Her shape and balance are superb, lovely head with correct muzzle, good mouth, excellent pigmentation, correct skull and neatly set ears. Pleasing neck, well made in front, level topline and tail carriage just right. She moved particularly well with some width and gave the impression of owning the ring. In the challenge for BOB, I just preferred the height of the male. CC BOS
2ndPeekin Miss Jive-Bunny-TuDeep gold/white in super coat. Most of the attributes listed above for the 1st applied to this one too and it could be said she was unlucky to meet her on the day. She is just a little narrower all through which was evident on the move. Her day will surely come.

Open Bitch
1stRossvales Latest ModelNice for shape, lower to the ground than some. Pleasing head and good mouth but condition of dentition indicates her age. Lacking in ribbing for me but constructionally sound all through. Moved out and back in style.
2ndPeekin Miss Jazz Ming-Tusister to the 2nd in Limit and is rather like her. Her head was not quite what I was looking for. Good pigmentation, excellent topline. Lacking a little bit of confidence today so I have noted ‚Äúnot as steady‚Ä??. In full glamorous coat and creates a good impression visually. Moved well going away but not quite as positive in front.
