1st: Dandyhow Jumping Jack at Glebeheath (Mrs J Guvercin) BP and PG4. Leggy short at the moment, but with maturity he will balance out, he is deep enough, narrow and nicely made, striking outline, good broad skull, fairly flat, shallow stop, sound legs and feet, a dead straight mover
2nd: Othamcourt Woodchat at Oatberry (Mrs K Tuffin) 3 months younger and just a little down at the front as yet, nothing wrong with his shoulder placement though, so this should settle ok, lovely head, the strongest of muzzles, well rounded neck, excellent topline, good rear and carroty tail, moved ok

1st: Dandyhow Dr Walter (Mrs K M Irving) Very smart, well filled in foreface, plenty of strength in jaws, good varmity expressive eyes, ears set ok, fair shoulder, maybe set a wee bit wide at the withers, but that does not affect his length of stride in front, excellent body, not overlong, good quarters, fairly well muscled and a moderate bend of stifle, in good coat and condition, moved with style and some drive in rear.

VHC: Olderhill Afortunado (Mrs S Wilson)
Junior – Dog Entries: 4 Absentees: 1
1st: Cedarhill Beyond the Stars (Mrs C Dean) A bit heavy in bone and body, not that he is overweight, but just a bit on the broad side throughout, keeps his outline moving and standing, ok in head but heavy ears, strong and well muscled but just would like him a bit more racey, moved well all round.
2nd: Lagen Laddie by Nookshot (Miss R Newman) Cheeky personality! A touch big but well muscled, and ribbed back correctly, nice gentle slope in underline, tail set a touch high and more bend of stifle would improve, good coat and loose pelt.
3rd: Foxpaw Brilliant Disguise (Mr P & Mrs H Fulker)
Novice – Dog Entries: 1 Absentees: 0
1st: Ragatam Newmarket at Badgerholme (Mr & Mrs B Dickinson) Nice puppy, just a bit weak in foreface, enough length of neck, moderate bone, reasonable feet and easy span, a touch overdone in rear angulation perhaps, excellent coat and if he grows into his rear he should do well.
Graduate – Dog Entries: 3 Absentees: 0

Post Graduate – Dog Entries: 7 Absentees: 0
1st: Onthill Fernando (Mr R & Mrs A M Ramus) RCC, Lovely to go over, narrow yet deep enough in chest, good slope of upper arm, neck widening nicely into shoulders, correct span and loose pelt, feet a bit thin for a working dog, lovely body, topline, tail and powerful quarters, correct in movement too. Half brother to a lot of winners today.
2nd: Nookshot Highland Toffee (R Newman) 7 year old in magnificent form, nice size and proportions of height to length, smart, powerfully built and immaculate presentation. I liked him a lot, just has a tendency to lift his front legs too high at the knee moving.

VHC: Renaissance Rhododendron (Miss Westland)
Limit – Dog
Entries: 8 Absentees: 1
1st: Bortino High Society (Mr D K & Mrs D Martin) a bit short of coat but it was hard and weatherproof looking, pleasing head and strength of muzzle, neat ears, carried in line with the skull, excellent body and his ribs go well back, moderate turn of stifle and strong, firm hocks, moved out well showing plenty of power and drive from rear. Half brother to Res CC winner.
2nd: Laurelton Moonlight Cowboy ScHM (Mrs J Cobbledick) Lovely to go over and has a deep and narrow chest, ideal size and good proportions, in good jacket, he just was rather lack lustre and I wished he would have put more effort into his movement.
3rd: Iacheslei Cantus JW (Miss A Harrison)
Res: Benattivo Stitch in Time (Mr C & Mrs S Girling)
VHC: Clipstone Tailor (Mrs J & Mrs E Jackson)
Open – Dog Entries: 8 Absentees: 0
1st: CH Dandyhow Beeline (Mrs K M Irving) CC Difficult class as they mostly were all losing their outlines moving, winner had the best shoulder lay so far! Lovely head, shallow stop, good eye placement and pigment is deep, sound legs and lovely small, tight feet, easy span, moderate rear, tail set ok, he is sound and true moving but only just does enough to win, not an easy dog to show either.
2nd: CH Cedarhill Authorized JW (Mrs C Dean) Another hard and tidy exhibit, not quite the balance in front as above but he is adequate, super harsh jacket, loose pelt, ok in rear, pleasing head and expression.
3rd: Bolt Tail Jebba (Mr F & Mrs H Freeman)
Res: Tufterslodge Walnut at Orangebox ShCM (Mr M & Mrs T Anscombe)
VHC: Iacheslei Torus JW (Miss A Harrison)
Veteran – Bitch Entries: 6 Absentees: 1
1st: CH Manx Margaid ShCM (Mr B J & Mrs K D Stockley) Lovely class of good ‘oldies‘, winner a mite short of coat but it was harsh, super type in head, front, bone and body and she moved really well for a 10 year old.
2nd: Borderella Elsa (Mr F & Mrs H Freeman) Really lovely hard double coat, quite similar to above but just lacking her strength of muzzle, really nicely put together and moving well
3rd: Gwingwill Little Owl (Mrs S J Channer)
Res: Tilmoray Tranquility (Mrs M Small)
VHC: Penlumeg Paloma (Mrs B S Harris)
Minor Puppy – Bitch Entries: 5 Absentees: 1
1st: Ragatam Nutmeg (Miss T Peacock) Really top class puppy for age. I thought her outstanding, good bone for size, strong head and muzzle, neat ears, good shoulder, ok for feet, lovely body with excellent ribbing, level back, good over croup and tail set, moderate turn of stifle and very easy active and true mover, she mucked about in the challenge which lost her Best PB
2nd: Baywillow Brown Braid (Mrs G Hyslop) Not quite as together as above, a bit slack in topline and needs a touch more bone and thicker feet. I liked her outline on the move and she does cover the ground easily. Half sister to second in post grad bitch.
3rd: Enchanted Estilo at Etterbern ((Mrs L & Mr L J Reynolds)
Res: Plushcourt The Blue Beetle at Coehen (Miss L Prior & Mr N Copas)
Puppy – Bitch Entries: 2 Absentees: 0
1st: Tufterslodge Tiz Only Me (Mrs C Sansom) Feet a little thin but she has enough bone for size,
good head and shallow stop, neck set at the right angle, good lay of shoulder but still can tighten a bit more in front movement, good chest depth and not too wide, super rear and powerful for her age, tail carried at the correct angle away from the body, another by Ch Rock Robin I see
2nd: Gameway Dragonfly (Mrs P Clark) Rather a short ribcage and long loin and she runs up at the back as yet, this could well settle with time, also a typy head and expressive eyes, ok for bone, feet could be thicker, in lovely coat.
Junior – Bitch Entries: 5 Absentees: 1
1st: Benattivo Faberge (Mr C & Mrs S Girling) RCC, This is a special youngster. I liked her feminine yet strong head, very ‘otter like‘, good neck, shoulder and slope to upper arm, tidy, neat feet, excellent body and easy span, thick pelt, precise and an easy agile mover with a good carroty tail. Half sister to Res DCC.
2nd: Quarryway Tansy (Mrs B & Mr K E Johnson & Williams) Also a nice bitch all through, not the coat of winner and she lacked leg hair on the day, very good outline and general proportions and especially good in head. Half sister to first in open bitch.
3rd: Tameilia Penny Lane by Borderella (Mrs P South)
Res: Brookbeech Blue Lass (Mr P Shephard)
Novice – Bitch Entries: 7 Absentees: 2
1st: Ragatam Nutmeg (Miss T Peacock)
2nd: Tameilia Penny Lane by Borderella (Mrs P South) Good size and proportions of height to length but needs better bone and a stronger muzzle, she is young and has time on her side and I hope she carries on strengthening up, good outline and skull ok.
3rd: Towden Jessica Jay (Mrs Cole)
Res: Olderhill Patience with Badgerlaw (Mrs B Marsh)
VHC: Brookbeech Blue Lass (Mr P Shephard)
Graduate – Bitch Entries: 7 Absentees: 2
1st: Enchanted Evening at Etterbern JW (Mrs L & Mr L J Reynolds)
2nd: Blewecourt Harlem (Mr M & Mrs T Morgan) Two nice ones first and second. Winner a touch short of coat but what she had was very hard, liked her construction, body depth, narrow ribbing and typical front movement, excellent rear, well set tail, she could carry her ears a wee bit higher perhaps but it was getting hot!. 2 Better ear carriage, standing and to go over was really good but she lost it in profile movement compared to above, super jacket, strong head, ok for bone and well ribbed back, well bit overangulated in rear.
3rd: Towden Jessica Jay (Mrs Cole)
Res: Mansergh Speckles JW (Miss A Roslin-Williams)
VHC: Sextonmagic Tamarind At Taralyon (Mrs A Morgan)
Post Graduate – Bitch Entries: 14 Absentees: 4
1st: Thistlestone Jenny Wren (Miss J & Mr S May & Whisker) Too much white up her front but that was a minor consideration as the rest of her was outstanding in this class. Neat, well made, stands and holds her outline, and is precise on the move, good clean neck running at the correct angle into shoulders. Half sister to both Res CC winners.
2nd: Baywillow Pacey Lacey (Mrs M B Reeves) Not quite enough strength in muzzle or bone for me, but I liked her general outline, active and precise on the move, and has a lovely hard jacket, tail could be thicker at the root
3rd: Torryburn Tickled Pink (Miss J Aldis)
Res: Mazie of Brimley (Mr D K & Mrs D Martin)
VHC: Sextonmagic Betula of Withershins (Mr M J Day)
Limit – Bitch Entries: 15 Absentees: 2
1st: Achnagairn Code Name Glebeheath JW ShCM (Mrs J Guvercin) CC, BOB, G3, A lovely class and spoilt for choice!. Winner quite an outstanding bitch I thought, she had a mite too much stop in skull, otherwise I couldn’t fault her construction, movement or coat and condition. A really top flight bitch, her sire, Ch Figaro also sired second in open bitch I see
2nd: Withershins Daddies Girl (Mr M J Day) Not quite as narrow across the chest as above, but feminine, strong and a tidy mover, in good jacket and moving well, if the handler didn’t persist in standing her front so wide she would look so much better. Sister to first in grad dog.
3rd: Cobstoneway Moon River at Clipstone (Miss E & Mrs J Jackson)
Res: Bortino Smiling Queen (Mr D K & Mrs D Martin)
VHC: Foxyard Better Behave at Emblehope (Miss D Bladen)
Open – Bitch Entries: 8 Absentees: 0
1st: Ragatam Jewel (Miss T J Peacock) A good class, difficult to split. I loved the third too, who was totally out of coat. Winner good size and outline on the move, moderate angulation in rear and a fair front, easy span, pleasing head and eyes, coat about ready to blow.
2nd: Benattivo Rosina JW (Mr C & Mrs S Girling) Slightly harder coat and very similar for size, outline and quality, she was just lifting her knees in profile movement, really ‘ottery’ head and expression, well ribbed and a lovely hard backline, amazing how many Dandyhows figured in winners breeding, they certainly have a lovely type. Mr Irving also won the Breeders Group
3rd: Gameway Cappuccino of Withershins ShCM (Mr M J Day)
Res: CH Southash Blue Betty Boo Gameway JW (Mrs P Clark)
VHC: Penlumeg Pendant (Mrs B S Harris)
