A 241 class show was held by the Society at the Royal Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet. Weather was a bit so-so but I think we escaped fairly well with a few light showers. Secretary Jacky Ash had everything organised and I enjoyed having  Jacqui Walmsley stewarding for me – we go back a long way, since Jacqui’s junior handling days. BIS was a Gordon Setter dog. Flaxheath McLaren Sh CM, judged in the breed by Helen Gracie. I gave this dog BIS at Christchurch and New Forest two day open shw last May and here he looked very good indeed. Now he has two CCs under hs belt, so I hope that elusive third isn’t far away. Hugapug Nutcracker Treveth JW, a delightful young Pug, full of mischief of course, was Res BIS, narrowly beating the very nice Mini SH Dachshund bitch, Webber’s Swansong in the Process. A gorgeous, sound and happy GSP bitch, Pingarypoint Eye Candy, was BPIS with Res going to a classy Whippet dog, Palmik Depeche Mode. Whippets had drawn a phenomenal entry for an open show – 68 entries for Mrs Pirie, and I thought my NSDTR entry of 16 was good. GERMAN WH POINTER O (5,3) 1 and BOB, Harries’  Myrna Loy. 2 and a half year old, good looking, typy bitch in fine form. Excellent coat, good bone and feet and a clean outline. Intelligent expression. Could be a little firmer behind but a clean silhouette. 2 Beacham’s Kimmax Kall the Kops. GERMAN SH POINTER G (2) 1 BP and also BPIS, Burford’s Pingarypoint Eye Candy, won a nice class of two. 10 months bitch, well constructed puppy with a quality head and lovely expression. Clean neckline, already a good topline. Sound mover, sleek coat and super condition. Well handled. She just got better and better as the day went on and by the time we got to do best gundog, and ultimitely BPIS, she had really nailed it. Great potential. 2 Burford’s Kavacanne Morgan You Know. O (1) 1 BOB, Burford’s Pingarypoint Hot Topic. 2 and a half years bitch, same way bred as ther puppy, earlier litter. Clearly a good combination. Obviously here she had the edge on maturity, a quality bitch, lean and fit. Good head with lovely eyes and expression, well proportioned and good neck, well muscled hindquarters. Moved with drive, again handled to advantage. POINTER J (4,2) 1 and BP, Gordon and Petherick’s Hawkfield Strider, talk about naughty children here! Strider is just 6 months, his handler never lost his patience and got him going very well, but only in glimpses. Well placed shoulders, clean neckline and good condition. Lots of scope and promise as long as his energy can be reined in to his advantage. Expertly handled. 2 Coggins and Adam’s Droveborough’s DCI Lewis at Gemrose. Also so well hadled, 9 and a half months l/w dog. PG (3,1) 1 Tannahill’s Wynbury Walter Jack JW. 2 and a half years  b/w dog, steady and composed showman.

BRACCO ITALIANO O (1) 1 BOB, Powell and Madreliath’s Omaggio, 2 years bitch, dignified showgirl who moved quite well behind, a little out at elbow coming towards me.

J (3,1) 1 Rice’s Tollerice Carcillo. 17 months dog of excellent quality and type. Good head and intelligent expression, alert and focused. Excellent body and coat, sound mover and at one with his handler going round. 2 Burchell’s Tivalake. Got the hang of things quite well, needs to grow on, good body and clean coat. BP. PG (6,1) 1 BOB and Gundog Group 2, Morgan’s Erickacen O’Ruadh for Deltandamba. JW. 19 months dog, striking young dog in gorgeous coat and colour. Sure-footed and showed himself off really well.

My thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge at this, their 1st premier open show at this venue.  Their hospitality was very good.  The show was held outside so there was no lack of space, however it was a very cold June day.  This and the long grass affected the breeds I judged.

A confident young bitch that was always alert, good wedge head with dark eyes and well shaped ears, correct face markings and pencilling, good topline and balanced profile, strode out well but it was difficult to discern the correct movement because of the long grass. RBOB. O (3) 1 Cross & Sheppard’s Sulasky Meant To Be. Well balanced overall with correct markings except no bar, good head shape and good candle flame ears, maintained a good topline and balance on the move, best mover in the class as there was a tendency in the others to hackney in the long grass, BOB, G4. 2 Snell’s Moretonia Kindle Fire. 3 Cross & Sheppard’s Ch Sulasky Please Don’t Go. Miniature Pinscher: G (6, 1) Three of the five dogs in the class were puppies so it was a difficult day for them.  1 Watts’ Estivals Koko Chanel. A very promising youngster who stood out in the class, pleasing head and balanced shape, correct markings, neat feet,and she actually managed to hackney on the move, well done. BP, Very pleased to see her gain PG1.  2 Warren’s From Russia With Love. 3 Allen’s Adurus Love In The Mist With Jaycroft.  O (2) 1 Allen’s Pinsky Agent Impossible at Tinolucianna ShCM A smart chocolate and tan dog that performed well in the light rain, clear face markings, good head, topline and rear angulation, neat feet, moved well, BOB. 2 Whetter’s Keehoo Bubble Gum at Mandolais, RBOB.

Many thanks to the secretary and committee for the invitation to judge, my first visit to the Royal Bath & West Showground, a pity the weather did not match the calendar date, cold and windy but at least the rain held off. The grass was a bit long but some of the dogs coped. Dogs were well presented apart from a few dirty teeth – why? It’s one aspect of showing you have total control over. Much appreciation to my excellent stewards who braved the elements and managed to stop all the papers blowing away.

MinIATURE Smoothhaired: O (1) 1 Stokes’ Webbers Swansong, 2 year old bitch, black and tan, up to size, ignored long grass and moved very well, good head and eye, front and topline, could do with more ribbing, rather close behind, BoB.

Whippet: What a lovely entry for me to judge, but above all some really lovely quality Whippets. Thank you all for bringing your lovely dogs under me. P (16,3) 1 Russel’s Palmik Depeche Mode, brindle/ white trim dog, one day off his first birthday. Lovely size, nicely balanced and just fills the eye. Masculine and elegant from tip of nose to tail.  Correct angulation which showed in his free flowing movement.  No exaggerations. Sound as a pound on the move both in profile and coming and going.  Just loved him. BP, PG1 and RBPIS. Very well done. 2 Chamberlain’s Collooney Candyman At Alacrity, 9mth fawn boy that I also loved. Same comments as above applied to him. Difficult choice. Just preferred the topline of 1. 3 Smeath’s Selinko Black Panther. J (6,2) 1 Bellamy’s Kandalama Royale, striking brindle/white lad of 14mths. Another out of the same mould as the puppy winner.  Lovely for size, masciline head, elegant overall picture. Good angulation. Second thigh developing well. Moved very freely round the ring.

Free profile movement and sound up/down. 2 Taylor’s Willingwisp Moment Of Hope To Musblaiks. 3 Zevenbergen’s Gold Finch. G (16,4) 1 Perkins’ Dejare Would You Believe At Zeglynn, fawn dog maturing nicely. Elegant but undoubtedly masculine, built on classical lines. Have judged him before and liked him then.  Would prefer a tad more length for his height which could have been due to the chilly breeze blowing, but nevertheless a very sound dog. 2 Russel’s Glantam Going My Way. 3 Sutton’s Palmik Hearts On Fire. Od (10, 2) 1 Boughton’s Danluke Double Tango With Ipanema, fawn/white trim dog I have admired from the ringside since first seeing him as a puppy, and he did not disappoint. Maturing into a lovely Whippet with just about everything in the right place. Lovely angulation which facilitated his free flowing movement. Masculine and elegant. Beautifully balanced which gave him a lovely overall appearance. On good form today despite the chill and threat of rain. BOB and HG3. Well done. 2 Russell’s Glantam Shooting Star. 3 Russel’s Chapleigh Asellus Borealis. Ob (11,2) 1 Smeath’s Wilingwisp Rumba, very shapely fawn/white trim bitch just carrying a tad too much condition. Lovely curvy profile and balanced picture when stacked. Built on classical lines as her breeding would imply. Very feminine and sound moving girl. Good topline and length of ribbing. Flowed round the ring in profile and sound forward and back. 2 Woodward & Bongiovanni’s Chasing Spiderwebs Around Tervanty, brindle/white 10 yr old veteran bitch who could certainly move it with the youngsters.  Just loved her carefree attitude and very much enjoying her day out. Very sound on the move. A great shame that she did not enjoy the show ring when younger. 3 Davis’ Jemalsheva Kaliska
