What a great pleasure to be invited to Judge Best in show for the Club. I was given a wonderful welcome by The Committee and Exhibitors, Catering and the weather was superb. By the time it came to BIS the sun was pretty hot, however I am pleased to say the dogs didn’t seem bothered by this and behaved well. Thank you Debbie Clarke for being my ring steward and who kept everything running smoothly.

My BIS was awarded to Chrissy Gibsons Standard Wire, Gibsons Here’s Looking At You a Two year old Brindle dog .Well angulated, with a correct harsh coat, Prominent front, took the challenge in his stride displaying such confidence. He was a delight to go over and then he moved out and back so true.
Tony Johnsons Johnsons Africandawns Just Divine. 15 Month b&t bitch, what confidence this young lady has as well. She has the correct shaped head, prominent forechest, presented in excellent condition and well handled.

Cindy Dares Dares Darsomes Zocratees 10 month old red dog a lot to like about him, with correct proportions Moved with ease, gave a superb outline both stacked and moving, Presented in good condition. I shall be watching this lad’s career for sure.

Mrs Tomsetts Dajeans Happy Sunbeam Feminine head good length of rib good harsh coat. Moved well.

BVIS was Saron Broad with Broads Nertanaf Sea Magic JW & ShCm
A 7 year old who is still strutting his stuff, moved well around the ring displaying a lovely outline. Presented in good condition.

ECDA Open Show 5/11/17 – Sue Seath’s Best in Show Critique November 6, 2017

Posted by Ian J Seath in Show Results.

A good line-up of quality dogs assembled for Best In Show, however the puppies were a little disappointing.

Best In Show – Muggleton’s Mosiarto Miss Calculate  

ECDA 1117 (16)

Eye-catching red Min Smooth bitch, who shows with animation and style.  Holds a lovely outline in both stance and profile movement.  Houndy head with correctly shaped, dark eye and keen expression.  Good reach of neck,  well placed shoulders, which are well laid back, with good length of upper arm to complement.  As a consequence, she displays the desired prominent breastbone and good forechest.  Pleasing body shape with good spring of rib, firm topline and good sweep of underline.  Ribbing extends well back.  Very well angulated hindquarters with super bend of stifle in stance.  Moved out freely with verve, and was true in up and back movement.  In gleaming condition.  Handler gets the very best from her.  I would just prefer slightly less wrinkle on forelegs for perfection.

Reserve Best In Show  (and also Best Veteran In Show) – Marks’ Ch. Brynalyn Royal Warrior via Labbadax

ECDA 1117 (14)Magnificent shaded red standard long dog of correct size, displaying perfect length to height ratio (not too large and long).  Noble head with arch to muzzle and dark almond shaped eye.  Strong powerful jaw.  Lengthy neck flows seamlessly into perfectly angulated, well placed shoulders.  Good length of upper arm and correct forechest.  Pleasing body shape, with good length of rib and short loin.  Hindquarters are well angulated and he has good bone and substance throughout.  Moved with parallel action up and back and effortless, free side gait. Presented in full, well conditioned coat.  He slightly dropped his topline in the competition for BIS in comparison with his performance in the Veteran class and this meant he had to settle for RBIS.  A quality dog to be justly proud of.

Best Puppy In Show – Gibson’s Allfrey’s London Look

Red Wire dog of correct size.  Presented the best overall outline in stance and on the move in this rather disappointing line up of puppies.  He still has a good deal of maturing to do, as can often be the case with young wire males, being quite shallow in body at the moment.  Head is correctly proportioned and has a keen, alert expression and good shaped, dark eye.  Reachy neck flows well into a firm topline which he held in profile movement.  Shoulders are reasonably well laid back, but I would prefer a little more length of upper arm, and this was reflected in his front movement coming towards me.  He does, however, have a good forechest.  Hindquarters and well angulated with a pleasing bend of stifle in stance.  Coat texture is good.  I would just like a little more bone and substance throughout and better feet.  Moved out freely with style round the ring and looked happy to be there.  Will watch his development with interest.

ECDA 1117 (7)

Reserve Best Puppy In Show – Chappell’s Gleneddee Miz Devil Chic

Elegant light red Min Long bitch.  Well constructed throughout with attractive head, good reach of neck, good shoulders, body shape and topline and well angulated hindquarters.  Just a little short of coat at present, but as a consequence it was easy to see her overall construction and movement which was very good.  Moved out freely and held her shape in profile.  Displayed good parallel up and back movement.  Presented a pleasing outline in stance with a firm topline.

Any Variety Veteran Open

1st – Marks’ Ch. Brynalyn Royal Warrior Via Labbadax

2nd – Moore & Coverley’s Ch & Ir. Ch. Ex Sentia I’m Bond James Bond

Outstanding Wire dog I have long admired from the ringside and was delighted to have the opportunity to judge today.  Perfect in size and totally correct for 2:1 length to height ratio and ground clearance.  Displays excellent harsh textured coat to top it all off.  Attractive head with keen, mischievous expression and dark eye.  Good reach of neck and well placed shoulders.  Stands absolutely true in front and behind and holds a firm, level topline in stance and on the move.  Strode out freely with animation and still looks very youthful.  Correct parallel action up and back.  I just slightly prefered the forequarters of the Long which placed him ahead of this lovely dog.

Lovely outline, good head, neck and shoulder. Well muscled quarters, moving well and gleaming with condition. Prefferred the head. 2. Wyeth’s Inkums Miss Vivian 2 ½ b. Good bone, well bodied, again a little sluggish on the move. 3. McCarthy’s Nagshall Port Alice JW . PG (4,0) 1. Pitfield’s Luna Caprese D’Oreo D’Argento of Follyfield imp. Dapple. This dog has to gone over to appreciate his virtues as he has masses of hair on his front end making him look front end heavy, but it is just that – coat.
