J Kelly - Dog Results
It has been a while since I judged our breed and it saddens me to find them in a diminished state. Much has changed and not for the better.
We seem to have a problem differentiating between what is a square and what is oblong, what is well muscled and what is fat. The dog we breed, show and exhibit is a square muscular working dog. With the tail now being undocked it is essential that backs are short and hard to avoid looking houndy.
Type, soundness and balance are being destroyed and need addressing urgently.
On a more heartening note most of my winners pleased me, meeting the standard for type, soundness balance and quality.
1st & Best Veteran in Show - Trystorme Standing Ovation – sound Black & Rust male of good type. Pleasing head of good length and strength of muzzle, correct eye shape and colour with parallel head planes. In gleaming condition with well muscled and toned body. Moved freely.
2nd Ch Purroma Dark Impression- Good for type although not the head or condition of first. Moved well.
3rd Almeria shadrak at Tomar
Minor Puppy Dog
1st Izralight Zorro – Smart standard height Black & Rust baby with short backed well balanced body deep to the elbow giving correct length of leg. Stands on strong round bone and tight cat like feet. Head could be longer and stronger in muzzle for better balance, excellent eye shape and colour however the whole head is spoilt by melanistic black markings. Comes a shade wide towards and needs to tighten on the move. Has plenty of time.
2nd Camperdown Glas Tullachen – not as mature or schooled as first. Good typr although longer than i would prefer which spoilt balance.
3rd Lamargs Drunk N Disorderly
1st & Best Puppy in Show - Supeta’s Secret Wizard at Dronski – Big Black & Rust baby with strong round bone & tightest cat like feet. Would not like to see him grow much taller having said that he is balanced, short backed deep bodied to elbows with excellent length of leg. Excels in head length and strength of muzzle with strongly developed underjaw and correct full dentition. Eye of good shape and colour. He possesses a long strong well arched neck flowing from nicely laid shoulders, hindquarters of good width and turn of stifle. I found him a little long in the hock than desirable and weak which should correct with time and exercise. Presents a harmonious picture standing but very much a baby on the move. Handled to advantage. One to watch for the future.
2nd Aritaur Cardinal Red at Jodeseen – Quality Brown & Rust – short backed deep bodied excellent for type. Head long lean and well filled although deep in stop and full in eye which detracts from expression even though of good colour.
3rd Roszars Falbray Via Tuwos
A Very disappointing class
1st Newfords Fame Monster – Presented a balanced picture standing. Uncollected and difficult to assess on the move. Good for type with pleasing head.
2nd Malibray Lagavulin
3rd Stormhold Atria
1st Chancepixies Trophy – Standard height Brown & Rust of excellent deep colour. Balanced short back deep bodied boy with good length of leg. Head could have better length and fill of muzzle for the ideal, eye of correct shape and colour. Excellent angles fore and after allowing him to power round the ring. A quality exhibit handled to advantage.
2nd Darkiss Maximuss Decimus at Kinmoth – not as mature as first and looking a bit rangy at the moment. However he possessed the better head of the two being long and well filled and parallel in planes. Has quality to spare just needs time.
3rd McKennahs Alson at Newfords
1st Camperfdown Gilas Tullachen
2nd Lamargs Drunk N Disorderly
Post Graduate Dog
1st Malibray Finnlaggen For Telenndu – Quality standard height Black & Rust. Compact well muscled body deep to the elbows good length of leg. Moderate angles fore and after allowing freedom of movement. Correct wedge shaped head of good length and strength, correct dentition.
2nd Gylemuire Strathclyde Compact deep bodied male with pleasing head and overall balance not as free on the move as first.
1st & Res CC Krieger’s the Wizard of Oz – 18 month old Black & Rust male that oozes breed type. Balanced muscular body deep to the elbows and standing on well boned legs of correct length and tightest cat like feet. Short hard back held steady on the move. Beauitiful masculine head long lean clean wedge with strong underjaww tight flews and correct dentition. Eye shape a perfect almond of the darkest colour giving that look of eagle’s expression that is missing in so many. Long powerful neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Hindquarters of good width and turn of stifle affording him free easy movement. He pushed the CC winner all the way loosing out on maturity in the end. He was handled to perfection by a young woman obviously who knows her stuff. A winning combination who’s title must be assured.
2nd Amazon El Cid with Keljaygo – Excellent type with well balanced deep body. Not as compact as winner. Well angulated allowing freedom of movement. Head pleasing for length, strength eye shape and coulour.
3rd Amazon Russian Ice.
1st, CC & Res Best in Show
Tuwos Halestorm At Showadows – A power house of a male. 2 years old Brown & Rust who exudes type and quality. Ultra short hard back line retained on the move. Well muscled body deep to elbow standing on strong boned straight legs of balanced length and large tight cat feet. I found his eyes of good shape but a shade light for a brown of this colour. Powerful well developed hindquarters of excellent width and bend of stifle short hocks used to flow over the ground. Well packed front and forechest, correctly placed shoulders and tight elbows. Presents a harmonious standard height picture of balance and quality. His coat is dark but mottled in places which detracts from the overall look and while cosmetic that along with his eye colour cost him Best in Show to a bitch in sparkling form. Handled to perfection by one of our better handlers. His crown can’t be too far away.
2nd Farantino Du Wot a Thriller at Ruholfia i like this boy very much he was unlucky to meet Halestorm and The wizard of Oz on form. Excelled in type soundness and balance. Again a beautiful masculine head shown to advantage one with a bright future.
3rd Ir Ch Aritaur Tomahawk Marrillium A favourite of mine who was carrying far too much weight on the day which was disappointing. A quality boy.
