Dogs Mrs S Smith (Beaudale)
I would like to sincerely thank the South and West Wales Cavalier Club for their kind invitation to judge their friendly well run show, I would also like to thank my two stewards for all their help during the day. I was made to feel so welcome and thoroughly enjoyed my day. Thank you to all the exhibitors for your lovely entry and accepting my decisions, sometimes not easy decisions in a sporting manner. The dogs were all beautifully presented with friendly temperaments, a credit to you all. I felt truly honoured and privileged to be presented with such a stunning open class, so many worthy champions, outstanding dogs representing our beautiful breed. The memory of this class will remain with me, thank you.

Bitches Mrs M Fox-Shone (Pamedna)
It was a great honour and indeed a privilege to be asked to judge only my second Breed Club Show and award my tenth Challenge Certificate. It was good to hear applause from the spectators showing their appreciation of all my placings. I was pleased to be greeted by a quality entry of 114 bitches which according to the club was up on previous years. Thank you to all exhibitors who have supported the Club in entering this show.
Thank you also to the committee for organising such a well run, well executed show and to my efficient stewards who kept order and things running smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed my day.
In today’s entry, I found quite a few incorrect bites across the classes, dirty teeth and a few exhibits lacking attention to detail in show preparation. However, my main concern, and other judges have noted this is bad croups, incorrect tail sets and tail carriage. Also another worry was that some of the bitches were too small and fine, I can appreciate a small, well balanced bitch within the breed standard but everything needs to be in proportion with substance and moderate bone. The breed calls for short coupled with a good spring of rib, strong well muscled loins, essential qualities to pass onto their offspring.
Overall, the bitches had wonderful temperaments, I found lots of quality in each colour in particular the wholecolours which have improved. I was ultimately looking for type, quality and soundness and I found several that fitted my ideal. I was pleased with my final line up and shortlisted five lovely bitches for high honours, who for me fitted the standard very well.

Veteran (6 Entries, 3 Entries)  
1st Rees’ Ch Tusculana Carmella at Embeth
Top quality tri, shown in lovely coat of correct texture and in nice condition, ideally sized and well balanced, moderate bone, lovely classic head, rich tan markings and large dark, limped eyes ,giving soft expression, correct high set, well feathered ears, moved very true, keeping a firm top line and lovely tail action, expressing her exuberant character. Not surprised to see she was a champion! Unlucky to meet one of my favourite dogs in the challenge for Best Veteran, though she did look fabulous and never stopped showing. Credit to her owner, Well done!
2nd Williams’ Sorata Barley Wine Sancana JW ShCM
Another top quality exhibit, built on slighter smaller lines than my first, 8 years old ruby, very pretty and good for type, good pigment, lovely round dark eyes and good expression, nicely angulated all through which was evident on the move, excellent temperament and well handled, today she was a little out of coat and needed a little more body weight too to complete the picture, an unlucky bitch I feel, not to have gained her crown.
3rd Walton’s Underknoll Tiamo ShCM
Minor Puppy (14, 3) A mixed bunch of babes at different stages who no doubt will change places.
1st King-Smith’s Ispahan Sister Midnight
Two very nice Blenheim bitches headed the class and were similar in many ways. This baby clinched the class on her showmanship in the end and excelled in body, .8 month old, well broken and richly marked, shown in lovely condition with a coat of correct silky texture. Ideally sized with moderate bone, balance and she excelled on the move, with a proud head carriage and level top line, excellent shoulders and good rear angulation, pleasing expression, dark soulful eyes, beautifully presented and never stopped showing to win this class. Promising baby. I believe I gave her grandma a ticket a few years ago!
2nd Coole’s Jolainey Just A Fairy Tale
This exhibitor is consistently producing lovely dogs all of a similar mould, this baby was no different. Good rich colour, loved her shape and make, moderate bone and substance and moved well. She has a lovely head, slightly heavier than my winner and wouldn’t lift her head on the move which spoilt her outline, but being only 6 months she’s yet to learn! Beautifully presented and handled. Another promising baby who should do well.

Puppy (12, 4)  
1st Maclaine’s Lochbuie Taken For Granted
10 months black and tan, fabulous for size and shape, so well balanced, shown in lovely condition, her raven black coat shone, her head still needs time, as can be expected of a baby, but she has lovely large dark eyes and rich tan makings, correctly set ears and nice almost flat scull, all the essentials of this wondrous breed. On the moved she strode out with purpose, keeping a firm top line and good tail carriage, very well handled.
2nd Long’s Arroline Euphoria
Well broken Blenheim, very similar to 1 for size and shape and balance, super on the move, firm top line and correct tail carriage, lovely rear drive and straight strong front action, again her head needs time, lovely eye and correct head shape, should finish well and so well handled and presented by this young lady.

1st Player’s Anickily Pandora
17 months black and tan, won this class with ease on maturity, shown in lovely condition, well bodied and in good coat, a nice size and well balanced, she moved with drive and covered the ground effortlessly, with a nice firm top line and good head carriage, pretty head, good eye and correctly placed ears which were well feathered, to enhance expression a richer clearer tan would be ideal, never stopped showing and was well handled. A lovely bitch. I believe she got her last JW points on the day.
2nd O’Grady’s Culverhill Coralie
Very pretty ruby with delightful expression, soft yet a glint of mischief, a real extrovert! Thought she might be my winner on first glance but she could not match the overall condition and maturity of one on the day. Lovely size, smaller package than one but still had substance, though today needed a little more weight and with it, coat to complete the picture. I’m sure this little girl will finish well and this exhibitor is sure to have some fun with her.

1st Spall & Clark’s Llapsttams Killer Queen
I shortlisted 5 bitches at the end of the day, all of whom filled my eye. This little girl clinched it at the very last moment. Ideally sized black and tan youngster shown here in tip top coat and condition. Raven black, shiny coat, rich, bright tan markings, moderate bone, lovely make and shape and beautifully balanced, moved out accordingly and never flagged in the class, keeping a good top line and proud head carriage, tail carriage was ok. Correct head type, high set, well feathered ears, almost flat skull, large dark, soft eyes, enough cushioning, which still needs to improve a little, lovely, alert expression and typical Cavalier temperament. Shortlisted and then she upped her game. In the final moments when asked to move around again she clinched it. Pleased to award her the CC, a first for her owner. Congratulations a lovely bitch! In the challenge for Best In Show I conceded to my co judge’s choice of male, a worthy young Champion, who won on being more mature and having more finish. So this lovely bitch had to settle for Res Best in Show. BCC, RBIS, BOS.

Novice (10, 0)  
1st Claydon’s Brymarden Incognito
As a very young baby I remember seeing this one and thinking a bit frumpy and not enough leg but on today’s viewing she has developed in to a ‘swan’ and into a lovely young bitch, super for type, make and shape, lovely eye and soft expression, correct ear set and lovely arched neck, never stopped showing, moderate bone and good lay of shoulders, well angulated at the rear, she could do nothing but move soundly, keeping a level top line and showing a happy temperament. Won this class with ease. Very promising.
2nd Cunningham’s Rishtte Ramona Verheyen
More mature, built on bigger lines than one and not as compact, well marked tri, at 2 years surprised to see her in this class, full of quality, shown in lovely hard condition and coat of silky texture, she moved steadily, keeping a lovely outline in profile, though I thought she could have been moved a little faster. She has an attractive head, correct head properties, good ear set and nicely cushioned muzzle, well handled.

15 months, solidly marked tri, ideal for size and very nice to go over, has lovely angles, moderate bone, is perfectly balanced. A real extrovert and at times proved a little hard to handle to get the best out of her, when settled moved well, very good for type, gentle expression, good pigment and correctly set ears, coat a little in between here today but a very useful bitch.
2nd Conneally’s Coedgwylum Hot Sapphire
Nicely sized well marked Blenheim, shown in lovely silky coat of correct texture, well balanced throughout, good front but not as firm behind as my first placing, pretty head, nice eye, well handled.

Heavily marked tri with white collar, very good for type, a lovely size and well balanced, nice moderate bone, loveliest of heads, large dark eyes, soft expression, enough fill under eyes, correct ear set and well feathered ears framing face, moved out well, level top line, tail a little high at times as were all the others in this class, showed well expressing her cavalier happy go lucky temperament. A quality bitch. In my final 5.
2nd Coole’s Jolainey Whizadora
Another quality bitch, lovely type, well-broken richly coloured Blenheim, plenty of substance, nice to go over, attractive head and large dark eyes. Moved soundly but had a tendency to drop her head on the move which spoilt her profile.

Quality 3 year old black and tan shown in beautiful coat and condition, would prefer a size smaller and preferred rear movement of one, attractive head and good eyes, lovely dark pigment, beautifully presented.
Special Mid Limit Ruby (3, 0)  
1st Whitfield’s Aristor Pink Topaz for Bevelmount
This bitch has good days and naughty not so good days! An easy winner here. Top quality ruby girl who just gets better with age, like a fine wine. Nice size and moderate bone, lovely make and shape, so well put together she just has to move well, and she does, keeping a firm top line and correct tail carriage. Shown here in good coat and well presented, she has a pretty head, dark eye and good expression. In my shortlist but in the challenge she was having none of it and played her handler up when it mattered.
2nd Lewis’ Carleeto Nikita
Nice for size, moderate bone and substance, lovely shine to coat, generous head, dark eyes, nose pigment was off today, moved well, giving a good profile, firm top line and good head carriage, well schooled.
Special Mid Limit Tricolour (8, 1)  
1st Eustace & Lovell’s Lovetrac Knickerbocker of Salegreen
Very feminine tri, beautiful for size, excels for type, loveliest of heads, wide white blaze, rich tan markings, round dark expressive eyes, soft expression, looked good in profile but sadly her movement lets her down, shown in good condition and beautifully handled.
2nd Vella’s Cinderaic The Lady Is A Tramp
Heavily marked quality tri, good to go over, sound, well angulated throughout, moderate bone, not as pretty as one, a little heavier in the head, correct ear set, dark eyes, rich tan markings, when settled moved well, here her coat was a little unruly which spoilt her expression and her overall shape but a quality bitch with many good attributes to pass on.

Special Mid Limit Blenheim (7, 1)  
1st Butler’s Tamyse Toot Sweet
My notes say ‘fabulous for type’ Very much what I was looking for! Well broken Blenheim shown in lovely coat and condition, and with a baby in the puppy class! She is lovely to go over and any newcomers out there if you want to know what a Cavaliers top line, tail set and carriage and croup should look like, check this girl out! Hers is COPYBOOK. Moved beautifully, so true, her tail coming straight off her back, wagging gently. Lovely head, correct ear set, well feathered, framing softest of heads, large round dark eyes giving gentle yet alert expression. She was very attentive to her owner. She was in my last 5 and at 5 years of age she pushed the youngster hard but had to settle with the RCC. A super bitch!
2nd Claydon’s Brymarden Honeybun
Another top quality Blenheim, unlucky to meet one on top form. One I’ve always liked, she is just so ‘moderate’, ideal for size, moderate bone, well balanced and moved so well, arched neck and good lay of shoulders, pretty head, lovely dark eyes and nice ear set. Presented a lovely picture, just needs more time to mature and to get more furnishings to complete the picture. Should go all the way to the top.

Very close up to one. Very pretty headed Blenheim, better for size than one, very feminine, nicely balanced, moved well in profile, lovely firm top line, slight tendency to lift her tail at times, needed more coat to complete the picture, showed and handled well.

Aptly named richly marked quality Blenheim, pleasing head, huge dark soulful eyes, excellent pigment, attractive outline and well angulated, moved soundly keeping a firm top line and correct tail carriage. Filled my eye quite easily for her qualities and therefore made the final cut for the BCC.
2nd Hughes’ Ch Loranka’s Moments Like This
Lovely type, well marked tri, shown in good hard condition and beautifully presented, plenty of substance and so good to go over, moved true and showed well, a worthy Champion. Here today, preferred head and expression of one. A top quality bitch.
