Dogs Mr M Morse (Matmor – Australia)
It was truly a privilege to judge for the City of Birmingham Canine Association today! The opportunity to judge my breed in the UK, the breed’s place of origin, is a dream come true. I found quality in abundance. The limit and open classes, in particular, were simply wonderful. Magnificent headpieces and glorious eyes were the norm. As in most parts of the world, we owe it as custodians of this delightful breed to ensure we breed for better front assemblies, loins that are short and strong and the correct croups that permit tails that are well set on and provide the ability for the dog to drive from behind. A glorious English summer’s day, eminent breeder and cherished friend Lucy Koster as my co-judge, efficient helpful stewards and fine sportsmanship made for an unforgettable experience.

1st Mangham’s Maibee Perfect Touch of Charnavale JW
Just so dignified and stately! This 10 year is simply fantastic. He is of an ideal size and one cannot be but impressed with his compact form and ideal height to length ratio. His head and expression is gentle and his eyes are dark and soulful. Perfect finish to the muzzle and the top skull nearly flat. Well angulated. He moved steadily and soundly. He loved every minute of his outing today and I loved him. Such a joy and privilege to see him and admire his many virtues.
Minor Puppy (8, 0)  
1st Bubb & Barrett’s Wandris Evanly Legacy
Such a forward and developed puppy. Fantastic headpiece; length of muzzle ideal, great finish to the topskull, round forward placed eyes all enhanced by intense pigmentation. Well angulated, he used his quarters to advantage on the move. Gait easy with good length of stride. Tail carried well and never much above the level of the back. His quality is undeniable and I was delighted to see him selected for Best Puppy of Breed.
2nd Homes’ Leogem Ravel
This puppy was at the other end of the spectrum. Clearly only just of age but taking everything in his stride. Obviously the baby of the class but his outline is superb. Grade of form, compact in shape, good length of leg and balanced angulation front and rear ensure you can ’t help but stop and admire him. Everything in place for his head to develop and mature into a stunning exhibit. One I feel rather excited by and wish him all the luck in the world for an illustrious career.

1st Lovel’s Pascavale Hudson at Lovetrac
This puppy sparkled today. Exceptional conditioning, depth of colour and presentation was just the start of his appeal. Attractive head with gentle expression. Expressive forward placed round eyes and neat finish to the lips and muzzle. Stylish in outline. Front assembly well laid and crested neck made him stand out in the class. Topline hard. Croup and tail set very good. Compact feet. Another most promising young steed whom I hope fulfils his promise.
2nd Allitt & Matson’s Tillashby Midnight Gold
Another quality exhibit that scored well in outline. Correct shape and balance. Sound on the move with excellent carriage and style. Good headpiece with highset ears. Great pigmentation. Abundant coat for age.

1st Crane’s Cranvarl Washington
The head and expression of this dog is ever so handsome and classic. Skull almost flat, ears set to frame the face and his length and finish to muzzle is excellent. How could you go past his eyes, dark round and solicitous. Ideal size, superb coat texture and all toy spaniel.
Upon examination he is still yet to develop through the rib cage and fall into his front. This is no way a criticism as time, patience and good conditioning will see to that and once he does, a stellar career awaits. Thank you for bringing him an exciting prospect.
2nd Hughes’ Loranka’s Glory Days
If only this dog had been happier today and loved the limelight he would have an easy time. He is compact in shape, posses a masculine but classic headpiece. His eyes are large and expressive and his muzzle and topskull excellent. Well angulated, good ribs and taut and strong through the loin. Excellent depth of coat colour. I hope his handler persists with him as once he is brave and daring he will trouble the best.

Yearling (6, 1) Two superb exhibits headed this class.
1st Towse’s Miletree Joseph
This is an exhibit that made you sit up and pay attention. He makes an immediate impact as he is ever so elegant on the move, stylish in deportment and brimming with panache and flair. His head is beautiful with expressive eyes, short but neat muzzle with good finish to the lips. Lovely topskull and well filled beneath the eyes. Dark pigmentation completed the look. Well laid front assembly, moderate chest, ideal development of the ribcage, taut loin and well set and carried tail. First class construction has ensured grace and efficiency when gaiting. Superbly handled. This one was ‘biting on the heels’ of some of the older exhibits and it won ’t be long before he enjoys his time in the sun. Definitely in contention for top awards.
2nd Bayliss’ Castlewytch Red Admiral
Another truly first class exhibit! So typical and ticks all the boxes. His head is very classic and correct. Muzzle not too short or overdone. Appealing eyes. Well-made and impresses on both table examination and on the stack. Balanced angulation. Great height to length ratio and displaying compactness of form. Heavily marked but good depth of colour. It was clear that 1st and 2nd were going to have to battle it out today. Not being overly cooperative with his handler and it was on the final go around that 1 clinched the top spot.

1st Blackie & Knapp’s Cridensa Conrad
It is often difficult to find a ruby with a really soft expression but certainly not this one! A very handsome headpiece, regal and dignified. Lovely soulful eyes. Well laid front and elegant crested neck. Adequate development of the ribcage just a little long through the loin creating a little more length of body than desirable. Well-constructed rear. The coat is long and silky and fits the body beautifully which added to his appeal.
2nd Thomas’ Bowfort Bertie Wooster of Pepyswood
Compact in shape and well balanced. Rather handsome in head but lacking a little refinement. Short plush muzzle. Dark eyes, soulful and limpid. Well off for bone and substance. Moved soundly and with purpose.

Graduate (9, 2)  
1st Davies’  Salegreen Brecon
One cannot help but feel joyous to judge this exhibit. Oozing with character, in love with life and just a little unruly. His eyes win you over: large, dark expressive yet sparkling. His head is lavish, masculine and endowed with excellent pigmentation to the nose and haloes around his eyes. Luxuriant ear feathering completes the picture. Moderate angulation fore and aft. Good development through the rib cage. A little more neck would add elegance. A delightful dog where his handler has the challenge of taming his coat and determination.
2nd Brennan’s Brenhora Tingle Creek
Showy and animated. This dog possessed expressive eyes and a plush muzzle. Moderately angulated front and rear but was balanced. The croup was a little steep. Well broken markings.

Blenheim of quality. Masculine but attractive headpiece. Excellent top skull and when he used his ears framed the face to provide a dreamy expression. Expressive eyes, soulful and solicitous. Good finish to the muzzle. Well-made throughout just a touch longer than ideal. Today he was just rather lack lustre on the stack and move which denied him showing off his virtues to advantage.
2nd Kynaston’s Granasil Vontrap JW
Handsome black and tan. A little up on leg. Regal head with expressive eyes. Crested neck, well-constructed throughout. Moved with purpose. Luxurious coat which added to his appeal.

1st Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Tommy
A ‘goose bump’ moment when this class entered the ring and I suspected I just may had spotted the dog of the day! Quality is indefinable but surely it is where all parts fit together to make a lasting impression. A super dog in all aspects and why was he the undeniable winner today? Because he is the triple threat! Firstly, on the table his expression is melting; to hold his head in your hands is joy. Top skull, muzzle eyes and ear placement are all correct and create instant appeal. He is a joy to ‘go over’ where he is well angled fore and aft with well sprung ribs, strength through the loin with the correct croup and tail set. Good column of bone and right substance for size. The coat is of the correct texture, cool to the touch and straight and silky. Secondly, on the stack it is evident he is of an ideal size, he stands well over his front displaying crest of neck. It is obvious he has a well laid scapula and good return of upper arm. A well-constructed front flows into a firm topline. His stifles are well turned. His temperament and demeanour is all cavalier; he was unphased by the events of the day but standing on the tiptoe of expectation enjoying life to the full. A lashing tail denoted his zest for life. Thirdly, on the move he clinched the deal! Clean coming and going but it is on the side gait where he truly excels. His outline is glorious, proud head carriage that provides elegance and grace of form. Coordinated foot fall, balanced reach and drive and light on his feet. He is sporting and athletic yet still retains toy spaniel status. He demanded the DCC today. In my mind, the perfect choice for Best of Breed and was glad my co-judge concurred. He sparkled in the group and it was exciting to see him shortlisted. Surprisingly untitled – surely he will write himself into the record books.
2nd Tarabad & Whitman’s Khatibi Bark Obama JW
What a cracking little black and tan who has everything on his side to turn heads. He scores well for size, shape and outline. He is glamorous with a wealth of silky raven black coat which was well presented. He is appealing in head but if only the eyes were fractionally larger. Lovely finish to the top skull, neat muzzle and adequate fill beneath the eyes. On the move he is a joy to watch. Effortless rhythmic gait. Fantastic extension with good reach and drive. Back firm on the stack and move and the tail carried as an extension of the topline. Neat compact feet. He came back for the RCC and put on a first-rate performance. Another one I truly loved today and I just wish there were a few more awards to go around.

Open (8, 1) A class brimming with quality! The first 5 were exceptional. This is what every judge hopes for.
1st Homes’ Ch Leogem Renaissance JW
I have to admit I was somewhat captivated by this exhibit. His expression is intoxicating and the longer I admired his face the more smitten I became. His eyes are simply glorious. Everything about his headpiece is generous, masculine but without a hint of excess. Well angulated, good development through the ribcage and tail set permitted a fine outline on the stack and move. Lashings of coat and furnishings, he is ever so glamorous. He was to be honest a little uncooperative with his handler and did not have his mind on the job but his type, balance and quality are undisputable. The more he went the better he got. RCC
2nd Sedgbeer’s Ch Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic JW
A dog of undeniable quality. The more I looked, the more I liked him. He really fits the brief for a cavalier, compact, sporting and sound. Beautiful but masculine headpiece. Well angulated. Good bone and substance for size. Compact cushioned feet. Well sprung ribs and strong through the loin. Steady and measured on the move. Topline strong. Indeed a truly beautiful exhibit.

Ruby of a good size, shape and make. Strong and masculine head, however, the eyes were beautiful, dark and expressive. Moderately angulated fore and aft. Good height to length and well sprung ribs. Rich deep red colouring.
2nd Bloomfield’s Delhaze Skyfall with Oaklake
A size larger than 1. This exhibit is ’full on ’ and keeps his handler on her toes. She, however, is to be congratulated for condition and presentation of this exhibit. Not a hair out of place, pristinely white, sparkling with health and vitality. Masculine in every way. Complete with lozenge too.

Bitches Miss L Koster (Harana)
I would like to thank David Bell and the Committee of City of Birmingham for the kind invitation to judge at this well run, friendly All Breed show. I was delighted to be judging with one of my best friends Mr Mathew Morse, all the way from Australia and officiating at his first UK Championship show. We agreed on all our joint decisions, the boys getting the nod each time.
I was thrilled with my entry…numerically…especially in this day & age…but was somewhat disappointed in the overall quality. Currently the number of bitches being shown outweighs the boys…however, I feel the strength does seem to lie with the boys at the moment, which concerns me. I found quite a few lacking bone and substance, upright shoulders and low croups. And where oh where has the reach & drive gone….too many were what I would call ‘mincing’ around the ring, with short stilted steps. And what about elegance??
While it is wonderful to have a nice win in the ring…these ‘showgirls’ are also, ultimately, the brood bitches of the future and I worry that the current ‘issues’ with the breed will be constantly self-perpetuated because we are not striving to breed and show better!
Yes……judging is very subjective….and is often about compromise. You have to judge the dogs on the day, and some bitches that I was very much hoping to get the chance to assess, today, disappointed for one reason or another. I do feel though, that we should all be looking long and hard at what we now deem ‘good enough’ to show, in comparison to what should be the ‘very best’ we can show.
I was pleased with all my class winners…particularly in the puppies with some very exciting youngsters rising through the ranks, but was a little disheartened that I’d got to the Limit class before I felt, on this day, I’d found anything that was, in my opinion, CC worthy. If this ‘pre-amble’ appears harsh it is born purely from the fact that now, in my 40th year of showing these beautiful dogs, I, like a fair few others it seems, am despairing at what is happening to our wonderful breed, and only we – the breeder/exhibitors – as its custodians can change that.

Veteran (5 Entries, 1 Absent) I just love the ‘Oldies’ and some favourites of mine here.
1st Tarabad & Whitman’s Khatibi I’m Martha Sleep
Petite well marked tri who is obviously enjoying being back in the ring!!. Lovely size & shape with adequate bone. Prettiest of heads, lovely large dark, round eyes, nicely tapered foreface and all framed by fully feathered, well placed and carried ears. Now here is a girl with bags of reach and drive, simply powering around the ring with aplomb…nice to see her out again.
2nd Owen’s Narayden Diva Fever at Hansowens
Like this b&t very much and have done well for her in her younger days. Not much has changed, she still possesses bags of quality…and shows a lovely elegant outline whilst standing and on the move. Today, whilst carrying the most fabulous coat which was beautifully presented, she was a maybe a little ‘over conditioned’ and feel she would benefit from losing a lb or 2.
3rd Loades’ Rosirius Clover
Res Underwood’s Neddaow Starlight Sakura
Minor Puppy (16, 3) What fabulous class…a veritable chocolate box full of babies!!
1st Homes’ Leogem Myrtle
Well….I was bowled over by this gorgeous young lady….she took my eye on first perusal. Has what I would consider a ‘blue-print’ shape…beautifully arched neck, short level back with neat loin, good croup and tail-set…each element blends into the next. Her movement was confident and self-assured, with ideal footfall depicting good angles without being overdone in anyway and lovely short hocks allowing for super drive. She wears a heavier marked jacket, of a lovely rich colour and has the promise of a good coat. Her head is where I would expect it to be at this age…very typy with such scope to develop into a beautiful study….all that’s left to add is that I had a very similar feeling of excitement a few years ago when I succumbed to her dams charms and awarded her the first of many CC’s…I can only predict, and hope, that this girl will follow in those illustrious footsteps!
2nd Brooks’ Moonvale Martini
Another super puppy who actually gave 1 a real run for her money. Again, the most lovely size, with super bone and substance…and nice solid puppy. Well marked coat of good rich colour. Gorgeous head with the softest expression, and at this stage maybe a tad more appealing than 1, but sadly she didn’t have the confidence or tenacity that 1 possessed, and was almost a little ‘apologetic’ for being there. With the right exposure, and growth in self-assurance, there is no reason why this gorgeous young girl shouldn’t have a wonderful, star-studded future…she certainly deserves to.

Puppy (17, 3)  
1st Sansom’s Byermoor The Empress
The latest ‘star’ from this small kennel which has to be admired for bringing out quality bitch after quality bitch without breeding scores of puppies. In a lot of ways this young, richly marked blen reminds me of one of the Byermoor greats…the lovely Ch. Queens Maid, and I have no doubt she will follow in her famous pawprints. This girl is of a useful size with super bone ’ substance, she possess’ a neat compact shape, with nice flowing angles. Such a pretty head…so correct even for her tender years. She moves soundly & steadily, each step converging into the next effortlessly. Was more than happy to make her Best Puppy Bitch, but in the challenge for BPIB, she came up against a young stallion of a dog, still so up on his toes and showing his heart out. One for the upper house I have no doubt.
2nd Whitehouse’s Embeth Jessie Jay at Denain
Shapley blen with well broken markings and carrying a nice amount of coat for her age. Well made with a super reach of neck and good shoulders. A decent size, being short and compact, but not too boxy. An elegant youngster with a lot to like….on the day just preferred the softer, kinder expression of 1.

1st Cunningham’s Verheyen Harriet JW
When I look at this girl she epitomises what I call ‘elegance’…She has such a lovely flowing outline & shape…super crested neck, blending seamlessly onto well laid shoulders, then into a strong firm back with good spring of rib. Well angulated hind-quarters, and neat hocks, allowing for free driving movement. Her head is a delight…. beautiful eyes – large and round with black halos giving the required soft and gentle expression so synonymous to the breed, nice shallow stop an good fill to muzzle. In profile her movement is seamless…each stride merging into the next with an assurance that belies the fact she is still actually only a youngster. I just wish she was a tad tighter and truer in front, and this, for me was the difference between awarding her the CC and not. I am sure that she will become a worthy Champion in due course, but today she had to settle for the Res CC which I was very happy to reward her with.
2nd Hazeltine’s Juzandia Morwenna
Just love this petite little blen, have admired her from the ringside, and was hoping to get my hands on her today. Sadly, having just joined the ‘teenage’ ranks, she was giving a lot away on age and maturity, and didn’t have the coat or finish of 1. She is such a neat shape, and so short, but with enough length of leg to present a balanced picture. Her head is extremely pretty, and all in proportion…scoring particularly for her lovely large, round, dark eyes. Feel she could reach the upper house with normal luck.

Thought this pretty little blen quite enchanting. Very shapely with lovely head & eye. Held a super outline when in motion, with strong, level topline and good tail set & carriage. Decent bone & substance akin to her size…seems to be on the brink of blossoming into a really lovely young lady who given the right exposure could do well.

Richly coloured ruby who was 4th in the good Junior class. Loved her for shape, and outline…both standing and on the move, keeping a decent topline and tail carriage. Sweet head with plenty of scope. A very happy showgirl, whose over exuberance tended to make made her a bit careless coming and going.
2nd Williams’ Anickily Anna Rose Sancana
Another sweet little girl wearing a b&t coat. Giving quite a bit away in age to the others in this class…but she held her own enough to secure a nice 2nd. Liked her size, everything ideally proportioned. Moved out well, showing a free and flowing outline. Given time should really come into her own.

Graduate (5, 1) Although numerically small…this was a good class and I was really splitting hair between 1 & 2.
1st Cunningham’s Verheyen Heike
Litter sister to my Res CC winner and really quite different. This girl is built on slightly more solid lines. Although not as well broken, her coat was of a lovely rich chestnut colour. Scored on bone & substance, and moved true coming & going, with a near perfect tail set and carriage. An attractive head with lovely large dark eyes, good pigment, and showing her socks off which tipped the nod in her favour over the gorgeous girl standing second. However just couldn’t match her sister for her exquisite breed type.
2nd Homes’ Leogem Aliona
I just loved this little girl, and was so disappointed that she seemed to be in the ring in body, but not in mind! She would normally be everything I would look for in a cavalier, neat compact shape, a real toy spaniel. Beautiful head, with correctly set ears framing it ideally. Well marked and in good coat…although this was also a bit lack lustre today. Her movement was difficult to assess as she was tending to scurry….only marginally settling as the class went on. I so wanted to put her up, and could have forgiven her most things, but she came up against 1 who pulled all the stops out in the class…it was a dog ‘show’ and sadly she just didn’t.

Really liked this shapely girl, who sadly seemed to be another one of several who were not having the best of days today…whether it was the ring area, the noise or whatever….again I was disappointed this girl didn‘t put on a better performance. On the stack she presents a wonderful outline, a well broken coat and plenty of it. Super neck & shoulders, firm topline, neat short loin and good turn of stifle. She has an attractive head, with a nice expression, but feel this will benefit from a little more development to fill and soften more. Pulled her out in my final 4 but her mind really wasn’t on the job...her handler wandered whether it might be that she was due in season…those hormones can be such a pain!!
2nd Maclaine’s Lochbuie Taken For Granted
This super little b&t stood a very credible 2nd. Has the promise of a very pretty, correct head with well set, full ears that she used well. Nice in profile standing, and went well coming and going. Had a tendancy to lose her topline a little on the move here, felt she would benefit from a lb or two and having slightly better muscle tone.

1st Conneally’s Coedgwylum Hot Cristal
This blen girl caught my eye on the first scan of the class, she is carrying a fabulous coat, which is well broken, of a lovely texture and is absolutely blooming. Again, going round she grabs ones attention with her lovely free flowing outline….carrying herself proudly, yet with grace and poise. On closer inspection, one can really appreciate her point for point. Her head is absolutely copybook….possessing the most beautiful, well placed eyes which were large and round giving such a gentle, open expression lacking in so many exhibits these days. Well tapered muzzle, with good lip-line, excellent pigment and plenty of fill. A nicely crested neck sits on well laid shoulders with neat upper arm, and well boned front. Good spring of rib, maybe a tad long in loin, but this does not detract from her overall shape and balance. Her movement was sound with nice forward reach and good drive behind. This is one of those Cavaliers whose qualities are somewhat understated yet so enticing and endearing that it kind of creeps up quietly and grabs you from behind!! In my final four her steady, composed but happy demeanour clinched it and I was thrilled to award her the CC.
2nd Homes’ Leogem Ginestra
I really felt for this lovely girls handler…with this class clashing with a dog class in which she was also exhibiting, she was to-ing and fro-ing between the rings, eventually having to hand her off to someone else which sadly had a detrimental effect on her performance today…..had I been informed I would have been more than happy to wait….we all pay the same money and deserve the same chance! What I did see I liked very much. She is carrying a super coat, which was of a good colour and texture. A very shapely girl, naturally standing four square because that is how she is made. Her head is attractive, and while for me maybe not as appealing as her kennel mate from the earlier class, as an overall package she oozes quality. I called her back in for consideration but she had not recovered from the earlier disruption, and just wouldn’t show off her many lovely attributes.

1st Vella’s Cinderaic Taboo
I have admired this bitch from the ring-side on so many occasions and was hoping she would be here. She is such a lovely neat size…a real toy spaniel, with ideal length of leg to body giving super balance. Her head is a delight…the biggest of eyes, but still soft and expressive, and although she doesn’t always use her ears to advantage, this does nothing to take away from her kind, open face. She looked a picture on the move, and I thought she might clinch a higher accolade on that alone…..I’ve seen her have really good days and on those IMO she is pretty hard to beat, but today, sadly, overall she seemed a little out of sorts and let herself down on the stack. That coupled with her being a touch out of coat and not quite matching the pigment of the eventual ‘top two’ she had to be content with this class win.
2nd Cunningham’s Verheyen Meryt
Mother of my Junior & Graduate class winners and you can see where they get their shape!! Wearing a heavier marked jacket than 1, she is just coming back into her best bib & tucker. A size larger all over, but still in proportion with lovely angles throughout. Sound, true movement – only to be expected from a bitch this well-made.

Very pretty blen, with the loveliest of eyes giving such a feminine expression. Loved the way she went round…head held high with such a ‘look at me’ attitude. Kept a strong topline through-out…just felt she was maybe carrying a tad too much condition which denied her a higher placing in the Post Grad class.

Placed 3rd in the good junior class, this is quite a forward, well-grown blen girl. Out of coat here, but with nothing to be ashamed of. Attractive head-piece which will only soften and mature to advantage.
