SOFT COATED WHEATEN JUDGE CRUFTS 16
2nd Roberts Loofahsa Andiamo. Slightly longer cast and coat not so mature as my winner but still lots to like. Sound frame, moving well. Liked his head and really appreciated his small ears.
3rd Pascoes Calvenace My Sweet Lord for Middlebury. Another just out of puppy. Balanced and square, coat more mature than my second place but this young man was more unsettled standing and on the move making it difficult to assess – his just needs time.
Res McFerrans Kirktonhill Cara Dils.
VHC Wards Saffini For You To Love
1st Bristows Denzilly Sweet Destiny for Avard. Super young man, compact and well made. Good breed attributes, dark eyes and pigment. Showed his personality on the move. I would prefer him to carry his tail a little higher over his back but set is spot on. Won this class on coat maturity.
2nd Another showing lots of promise. Nice outlook, super neck and shoulders. Moved with purpose. He will have his day.
3rd Blandfords Janeyjimjams Joshua. Slightly longer cast but a nice exhibit. Masculine head and mature coat. A little unsettled on the move, had a tendency to gamble round the ring which improved when he slowed a little.
Res Morts Regalred Russian Prince.
VHC Hammond & Evans Calvenace Thor.
2nd Johnsons Kinaelan Halsey. Slightly lighter in frame but lots to like. Lovely silky coat, masculine head and good pigment. Would prefer to see a little more length of skirt as the shorter version gives the illusion of him being longer cast than he is.
3rd Adams Saffini Crazy For You. Another dog with very good colour from this kennel. Balanced in outlook and showing promise but a little unsettled on the day. Didn’t feel he gave his best which lost him the edge today.
Res Moles & Williams Wheaten Goblins Eros for Celtannia (imp).
VHC Calvert & Naylors Amaricy Bullet Proof.
2nd Revis Tiareko Niflheim’s Wizard. Very unlucky to meet my winner on the day. I still love his masculinity and type and coat maturing nicely but movement not suite so positive today.
3rd McIntyres Thistlebe Mr Bojangles. Not quite as outgoing as my higher placings but gave a good account of himself. Presented a nice outline.
Res Bradys Macfinn Magneto.
VHC House Glendowan Tarquol.
2nd. Thoburns Northridge Gotan Go. Another male that has matured very well and I have admired from the ringside. Strong masculine outlook and well appointed head. Coat soft and of good colour. Moving well fore and aft. Gave a good account of himself.
3rd Boasts Denzilly Tickle Me Elmo. The third of these boys making a very worthy trio. Many similarities in size, shape and balance and lots to like. Movement true when moving away but had a slight tendency to crab on the return which spoilt the flow. A real shame but made the difference in such strong competition.
Res Satherleys Ch/Int/Swe/It Ch Modny Style Loverboy at Seamrog (imp Rus).
VHC Hannas Kinaelan Finlandia Finnian.
1st Tilley’s Starzak Solid Gold EZ Action. JW ShCM. Hard to believe this young lady is a veteran. Presented to perfection in very good condition. Still exhibiting very sound movement from every angle and as always enjoying her day.
2nd Griffiths Wintrypark Miss Goodnight with Manawyddan. This young lady very much belies her age. Slightly more petite with a very sweet head. Loved her coat oozing soft, silky curls. Moved around the ring with purpose.
3rd Bain’s Ch Merriwell Midnite Melody. Presented a nice profile, well balanced body, pretty head and moved okay but not really enjoying her day today.
Res Rogers Ch Kizzahla Katinka ShCM.
VHC Bristows Kellynack Viva La Passione for Avard.
2nd Griffiths Manawyddan On The Move. Another nice baby. More mature in outlook. Balanced head and pretty coat. Rear movement just a little untidy today.
3rd Courts Barleythrift Megisto. Still has a lot of maturing to do compared to my higher placings but this is not untypical of the Irish coat. Nice size but a few extra puppy pounds affected movement today which was hard to assess.
2nd Holdings Kirktonhill Cara Alainn. Close up decision lots to like and coat of better colour but not so confident in outlook. Moved well.
3rd Celtannia Extra Confident at Kinaelan. Litter sister to my DRCC winner. Nicely made with feminine head and delicate ears. Moved out well. Still needs a few furnishings which will complete the picture.
Res Van Merrienboer Chaykyba Faith Love and Believe Lux Youth Ch.
VHC Rogers Kizzahla Kiss and Tell.
1st Satherleys Silkcroft Sky Full of Stars. What a beautiful young lady that owned the ring as soon as she arrived. Prettiest of heads with good pigment and well set ears. Nicely boned and perfect for size. Strong front with good angles. Coat super soft, with a sheen you don’t always see. Moved out with drive and style. Her mum won the OB class and I can see where she gets her attributes from. She worked her socks off for her young handler and in the challenge I kept on being drawn to her – I couldn’t deny her the CC & BOB on the day. She will have a bright future.
2nd Connors Regalred Russian Romance. Another very well made young lady just larger all round. Presented a very nice square outline. Liked her head and movement was good. Well presented but I would like to see more coat for preference.
3rd Dunhills Fantasa Blonde Queen Bee. Petite and feminine. Moved out with drive clearly at one with her handler. Good coat colour falling in loose waves but I felt the abundance covering the neck and shawl area made her look a little heavy in these areas.
Res Lui Hobel Turn Around.
VHC Bradys Macfinn Ororo Munroe.
2nd Kellynack Joie De Vivre. I liked her as a puppy and she didn’t disappoint today. Pretty young lady, balanced all round, coat still need to mature a little and still lacks a little confidence in the ring which affected her placing today.
3rd Lui Thistlebe Them There Eyes at Eblanahalls. Slightly larger all round but gave a very good account of herself today. Moved out with drive. Very pleasing coat and head.
Res Thoburns Northridge Who Are You.
VHC Hughlocks Janeyjimjams Jolene.
2nd Wardles Saffini One And Only. Close up decision. Lots to like, very well muscled, darker coat colour. Not quite the precision of movement on this occasion. These two will change places many times.
3rd Williams Kinaelan Cachique at Celtannia. Slightly longer cast than my first two winners. Coat in abundance and full of loose waves. Dam of my RDCC winner, she has shared many of her good qualities. Gave a good account of herself. Unlucky to meet 1 and 2 on the day.
Res Busby Calvenace Minnie HaHa at Zakby.
VHC Manawyddan Brigid.
2nd Van Merrienboer Lux/Int/Dutch Ch Aranka of Roban’s Home. Nice on the stand and move. Sweet head. Lovely neck and soft coat of good colour. Moved out well.
3rd Munns Snowleadow Peggy Phurrari JW. Another favourite of mine, sister to my DCC winner and so many similarities in make-up and style. Lovely profile with everything in proportion. Just lacking coat today after maternal duties.
Res Wardles Saffini Yours Truly.
VHC Dowdy’s Ch Denzilly Sweet Rebel.
2nd Wassalls Emalot Little Miss Magic. At 6 years this young lady shows a lot of maturity, particularly in the coat department. Balanced head, strong neck, level topline. Moved well.
3rd Busbys Calvenace Killer Queen at Zakby. Slightly smaller in frame and size.
Res Jefferies Cuddly Keira.
