Best Vintage In Show

Venue: Thorpe Willoughby Village Hall, Thorpe Willoughby, Near Selby, North Yorkshire, YO8 9PA

Judge: Mrs. Linda Peirson (Kiltondale)

I thank the committee and exhibitors for making me feel so welcome judging their Open Show and for the encouragement and support they have shown me during my journey in judging Cavaliers.

I found temperaments were all good, as it should be, a happy toy spaniel. A few showing white of eye, which spoils the soft expression and mouths need watching too.

Presentation in some exhibits was immaculate, some could have been better presented for advantage.

BIS was the Ruby Bitch, Toyswood Me Myself and I
RBIS & BOS was the Blenheim Dog, Verheyen Reacher at Craigowl
BPIS was Blenheim bitch, Kringleholme Corvette
BVIS the Ruby dog, Gransil Golden Nugget, ShCEx VW
BSPVIS the Tricolour bitch, Toscam McKayla


Veteran Dog
1, Gransil Golden Nugget ShCEx Vw. This Ruby male, I judged him at an open show not so long since, he never changes. He puts 110% into his performance and is always turned out immaculately. A true show dog with the most gorgeous head and expression, everything about him says ‘male’. He is balanced through out, in super condition and simply flows around the ring with little effort. BVIS
Minor Puppy Dog.
1, Carolus Coronation. A young dog just staring out and given his age has a super shape already l, his blenheim coat is nicely broken and correct texture. Has a good neck and shoulder placement, level topline with correct tailset. Moved beautifully.
2, Beardsley Smooth Criminal, Ruby of a larger size. In good coat and condition, nice shape, good head and expression, moved well but lost his topline on the stand.
3, LLapsttam Get Knotted
Puppy Dog
1, Beardsley Rumours, litter brother to 2nd in previous class and similar remarks apply but I liked the outline of this boy better moving. Good head and dark eye, happy disposition at all times, again he just loses his topline on the stand.
Junior Dog
One of the strongest classes of the day.
1, Verheyen Reacher at Craigowl, beautifully marked blenheim boy, he presents a super shape at all times, such a balanced dog. His head is broad and flat with such a pretty expression, framed with great fringes and the darkest pigment. His movement is correct as his construction would suggest. Best Dog.
2, Brymarden Busby for Almonroyd, there wasn’t much between these 2 dogs. Another with a super outline, rich colour coat in sparklingcondition, super head, dark eye and pigment. Liked his angles front and rear and his depth in chest. Very stylish on the move.
3,Arrowbien Jamie
Maiden Dog
1, Pamedna Jaques, black and tan, very nice dog who I think is a super shape, good front assembly and depth in rib, lovely head and gentle expression, moved well.
2 Luvtayls Newsflash, another nice type, who just didn’t settle on the move. Liked his shape and balance, pretty head and dark eye. Presented in great condition
3, Kensesqui Rascal Red Velvet
Novice Dog
1, Kensesqui Rascal Red Velvet, Ruby puppy who is of a taller build, he needs to fill out and mature, he has time on his side. Kind expression, such a happy character
Graduate Dog
1,Toraylac Havard, blenheim with a nicely broken coat. He showed well, presents a good outline and balance throughout. Super head with a dark eye and pigment. Moved well.
2, Pamedna Jacques, Ruby who just didn’t have the finish in body as 1. Moved very well and has everything there, will come into his own in time.
3, Lorankas Secret Charmer
Post Grad, Blen or Tri
1, Toraylac Havard
2, Kringleholme Kraftwerk JW, blenheim male, I really like this dog, gorgeous expression and kind eye, dark pigment, coat of lovely texture, would just like him with more substance, he moved well but slightly arched his back on the move.
3, Revaelann Nic Nac Paddy Wak
Post Grad, B/T or Tri
1, Rabymar New York, Ruby of a larger type, moved ok, he needs to fill out and grow some coat to look the part.
2, Carson Red Rebellion, thought this dog was beautifully presented but for me, he wasn’t balanced as he was low in leg and short in neck and this did show in his movement, he could do with a little more foreface to balance his head.
Limit Dog
1, Brymarden Touch of Gold of Charnavale, blenheim with a super coat, he has a beautiful head and eye framed by super ear fringes, present a lovely outline that was balanced with a level topline. Good angulation front and rear, sound mover.
2, Ellenaud Oliver Twist, this dog was very close up to 1st, a cobby dog with so much to like, balanced throughout, moves well, I think he could be shown better to get the best out of him.
3, Castlewytch Infatuation
Open Dog
1, Stavonga Sky Walker Kayceekay JW, blenheim who is a good shape and balance, liked his size, his coat is well broken, deep rib of good shape, cobby type with a super head and dark eye, moved well. RBD

Special Vintage Bitch

Maiden Bitch
1, Toyswood Me Myself and I, just loved this ruby, her shape, her movement, has a gorgeous head and expression, dark eyes and pigment, has the width to her skull.
