2nd Szabo & Vorderstrasse’s Ch Bonitos Companeros Imperator
Beautifully coated & presented dog with lovely head & eye. Slightly longer dog which shows in his topline.
3rd Martins’ Loranka’s Here Comes The Sun to Clemartill
7 years, a compact toy spaniel of good head type. While his pigment could be stronger he won this place on movement & topline.
Res Davies’ Bowcara Casanova
VHC Hughes’ Ch Kaishmar Kavanagh Loranka
Minor Puppy (3, 1)  
1st Koster’s Harana Dean Martin
8 months b/t who won this class on his excellent balance, & his good construction which shows in his movement & topline. His head needs time to develop.
2nd Thompson’s Llapsttam’s Jack Ruby
9 months ruby who has a better head than the winner, is a lovely colour but at the moment his action at both ends needs to improve. Tail carriage needs to settle. However, these are things which time may help. He has quality.
Puppy (4, 0)  
1st Chapman & Ireland’s Ellemich The Sinner
9 months, heavily marked blen in great condition & a very good mover. He has a beautiful head & eyes. Croup could be a little better. Easy winner of BPD.
2nd Etheridge’s Shelpet Vanilla Ice at Diddlidors
9 months. Excellent for size & coat. At the moment, he needs to fill out in front which shows in his front action. His head is of good type but needs time to finish.
3rd Spencer’s Jamesbonny Spencer Tracy
11 months blen with quality in head. Topline could be better.
Res Cullen & Parker’s Chlojade Shooting Star
Junior (21, 2)  
1st Tarabad’s Khatibi Bark Obama
Looked the part of a toy spaniel of excellent balance in great form. Refined quality head. Excellent ribcage & coupling. He can tighten up on the move but in profile active he was excellent.
2nd Ireland’s Charnell Hogan JW
16 months blen, lovely size, very good body & colour, well broken up. I preferred head & front action of the winner.
3rd Ford’s Salegreen Periwinkle
12 months baby of the class but had beautiful breed type & is very sound at both ends. Excellent head. At the moment shows a little white of eye & can settle in topline but I think he has immense quality & promise.
Res Staszuk’s Crazy Angel Maradeco King JCh-CZ
VHC Stahl’s One N Only Junior Ger Jun Ch
Yearling (13, 0)  
1st Homes’ Leogem Renaissance JW
14 months blen of excellent size & proportions & what a pleasure to see him move away from me with superb rear action, a rarity on the day. Quality refined head & good eye. Needs more rib & body which can be seen in his topline but scored in rear & tail carriage.
2nd Koster’s Ch Harana Errol Brown JW
2 years old ruby in glamorous condition & more mature in body then the winner. Has a quality head & a good eye. Good front action.
3rd Drewett’s Brymarden Honeycombe at Judyland
20 months blen with lovely outline & caught my eye going around the ring with his lovely topline & tail carriage. Flat skull, moderate stop & correct ear set. Pushed hard but not quite as steady in front as the ruby dog.

2nd Hobbs’ Beaconsfylde Catch The Kiss JW
23 months, lovely type in the dog which I liked a lot. He has a very good head & eye, holds him topline well & is very good in rear action. Excellent colour & coat. I’d prefer a touch more neck.
3rd Cole’s Carolus Don Barzini
2 year old blen of toy spaniel size. Good headpiece. Needs to finish in chest. Not the croup of the two above.

1st Drewett’s Brymarden Honeycombe at Judyland
See Yearling
2nd Hawes’ Miletree Centauri for Kersmere
Quality dog of 2 years who might have home higher if he had done with more style & confidence. Full of breed type & is well constructed in forehand & rear. Full of quality.
3rd Blackburn’s Bekenveldt Evan Only Knows
19 months, raw & needing time but he has quality & type. He is a very good mover. Shows a little white of eye.
Res Darlington’s Royal Fantasy Sacred Sunset
VHC Hedger’s Khatibi Peter Bread for Alrewic
Post Graduate (22, 1) A very disappointing class with many poor movers.

4 year old ruby who was all toy spaniel, moved soundly & held his shape. He has a good head & eye & was presented in good form.
2nd Darlington’s Bonitos Companeros Chikas Regale
2 year old of beautiful quality & he went very soundly with great style & temperament. I preferred the flatter skull of the winner but there is a lot to commend in him.
3rd Sharman’s Wandris Beyond Belief
5 years old & one of the best moved in the class. Lovely head & eye. Sadly, he lacked body on the day.
Res Nichol’s Chantismere Chamberlin
VHC Thomas’ Charlottetown Dylan Thomas of Pepyswood
Mid Limit (15, 1) Good Class
1st Knight’s Carolus Don Santino JW ShCM
2 year old who appealed for size, balance & type throughout. It was so good to see that his was also a very good mover with firm topline & good carriage. His handler could make more of him but nevertheless he made the final cut for the challenge.
2nd Cunningham’s Verheyen Anton
15 months of the same type but not a forward in body. Beautifully coat colours & a quality dog throughout. Again, he combines type with soundness.
3rd Bloice’s Scotlass Power Of Love JW ShCM
3 year old of quality better bodied then the second dog but not as collected on the moved. I liked him.
Res Barwell’s Charlottetown Cecil
VHC Walker’s Chantismere Charade Kayceekay JW ShCM
Limit (13, 0)  
1st Rhodes’ Calonlan Corona
Stood out I this class, well broken blen who is an excellent moved. He is well constructed throughout with good angles which is evident in his stride & soundness. Quality head. Not quite in his best coat but a very good dog I liked a lot.
2nd Mangham’s Castlewytch Perfection of Charnavale JW
Tri who is a touch longer cast but scores in his excellent rear action & topline. Excellent type in the head & eye. Not yet fully mature in body & this should make him look more balanced.
3rd Wightman’s Ellemich Kenzo at Kailyflee JW
3 years with very good head, lovely colour & good front action. Hindquarters could be better. Won this place on compact well balance body.
Res Long’s Arroline Infinity JW ShCM
VHC Edwards’ Delhaze Take A Chance
Open (22, 0) Full of quality. Sadly, a couple of dogs I regard highly were not on form on the day.
1st Sedgbeer’s Ch Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic JW
Very correct & ultra sound dog without the glamour of some but appealed for his correct type, proportions, with well broken colours & movement. Good skull, top & eye. Carried himself well here & his accuracy on the move took him to CC. Gave up showing for BOB but was BOB on referee’s decision.
2nd Gibb-Stuart’s Chantismere Push My Button JW ShCM
Great style & showmanship, a lovely quality dog, more heavily marked than the winner but lovely head, body, rear action & stride. Very close decision & the accuracy in front of the winner decided the issue on the day. RCC.

Compact of lovely size & proportions. Not the rear action of the winner. Good head type.

Good Citizen Dog Scheme (16, 0)

See Under Graduate
3rd Walker’s Chantismere Charade Kayceekay JW ShCM
5 year old rich coloured blen who looks a picture standing & while his sound on the move his high tail carriage detracts.

Bitches Mrs L Gillhespy (Lorphil)
My thanks go to the officers & committee for inviting me to judge. It was a great privilege Thank you to my two very able stewards, Gay Lowe & Carolyn McCormick Smith who kept the ring in good order. It was five years since I last judged bitches so almost all were new to me. Thank you to all exhibitors for entering their bitches under me. The majority of bitches who I judged today are a credit to our breed. I had an excellent choice of pretty bitches with gentle expression, large, dark eyes, correct length of neck, well laid back shoulders, level toplines & well set on tails, excellent dentition & fitting the Standard so well.
