Three Counties Championship Dog Show

Malvern, 4th June 2015. Judge: Mr Frank Kane.

"Thank you for a very good entry in terms of numbers and quality. I really enjoyed the breed and the bitches here especially provided a very strong line-up for the challenge. Fronts and front action were problematic for some.
"Many thanks to my stewards, Avis & Preston Haffenden."

Milton's Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit

Rolland's Dandiroyal Helga Hufflepuf

Puppy Dog 1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman
8 months pepper, quality puppy of good length and a very good forehand assembly. Correct length of ribcage. Good coat. Needs a little more stop and I would prefer a little more roundness to skull but he is still young. Moved very well. Tailset a little high but he is full of type. BPD.

Junior Dog 1st: Kurg's Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
16 months, good size and gently curves to outline. Strong head and good proportions. Ear leathers a little thick. Needs time for coat to finish. Good hindquarters and tail. Front action can improve. He was a little unsettled after an incident with Bull Terriers. Pressed hard for RCC
2nd: Drake & Skitt's Deegandan Reiver to Tollcross
17 months pepper. I liked his head and his coat. A little larger and heavier type who has a sound rear. Front construction could be better. Excellent temperament.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Youngs's Inzievar The Goldsmith
18 months mustard of lovely size and shape. Good head proportions and nice dome to skull. Coat coming nicely. Held his shape on the move. Convincing winner here and can go on to better things. Full of type.
2nd: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay
2 years, good coated dog who is a little flat in topline and tail a little high in carriage. He won this place on sounder action over a better toplined dog. Nice size. A touch flat in skull.
3rd: Buckley's Dentgate Celebration

Limit Dog 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Diggory Delvet
22 months mustard, lovely headed dog of good length and shape. Excellent coat texture. Very good rear. A little unfinished in front and this shows on his front action but all Dandie in type and should finish well. RCC.
2nd: Noble's Hawkesmill Indiana
2 years, lovely shape held on the move. Not yet fully mature in rib and chest and this showed in his front action. I preferred width of head and strength of muzzle of 1.
3rd: Bell's Hawkesmill Indigo from Reidswire
Res: Tinsley's German Dandies' Terence Hill at Cloverwood
VHC: Hughes's Maganbar Magic Moment

Open Dog 1st: Deacon's Ch/Am Ch. Pennywise Burning Ambition for Cassencarrie
9 years, remarkable dog of lovely size and shape, wonderful front extension on the move and very good rear. Excellent head proportions. Very good body shape and in superb coat. Correct tail and carriage. CC and his more gentle lines took him to BOB over the lovely bitch.

Puppy Bitch 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Helga Hufflepuf
8 months pepper bitch of lovely size and curves, very good head and eye, good coat texture. Very good movement, her front action one of the best of the day. BP.
2nd: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies Royal Dutch Emma
8 months mustard, another lovely puppy with excellent head proportions. Good ears, excellent rib for her age, good rear. Just a touch heavier in shoulder than 1 whose front action won her this close decision.
3rd: Powis & Wallen's Siwop Black Baccara Rose
Res: Wheeler's Courtmoat Heilan Lass
VHC: Sleight's Bonnybeck Shimmering Brook

Junior Bitch 1st: Milton's Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit
16 months, beautiful weasel-like body shape held on the move where she is good at both ends. Excellent skull, foreface and eyes. Good coat texture which is a little dark still but she exudes type and quality. Not quite the maturity of CC winner but close up. RCC.
2nd: Tinsley's Cloverwood Wish Upon A Star
16 months, very shapely bodied with good coat and colour. Not very willing to help her handler on the move showing some of the Dandie temperament. I preferred head and expression of 1 but she is full of type. Like her male kennelmate, not really enjoying the proceedings.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Youngs's Dentgate Opal
22 months pepper who is a good size and proportions but a little heavy in body on the day. Excellent coat and the best mover in the class. Good head and eye. Her topline on the move would be helped by less weight but she was a convincing winner of this class.
2nd: Buckley's Puddockswell Sweet Phoebe
7 years mustard who belies her age in her bodylines and active movement. Her head is lacking a little in stop and dome and she could be a little better in front action but she has excellent coat and topline and rear action.
3rd: King's Bonnybeck Delilah Creek

Limit Bitch 1st: Hughes's Maganbar Apple Blossom
3 years, lovely size and shape, in excellent coat. Pleased me in head and eye. Front action a little loose. Excellent rear and topline and full of temperament. Carriage on the move and topline were excellent.
2nd: Rolland's Dandiroyal Puddleglum
Lovely bitch with excellent head and eye. I liked her front and front action. At the moment looks immature in body and has not quite the curves of 1 but I liked her a lot.

Open Bitch 1st: Chapman-King, Kinsey-Morgan & Hislop's Ch. Inzievar Sparkling Silver
Almost 3 years, beautiful type, in excellent coat and very good on the move. Lovely head proportions and excellent eye and expression. Lovely size and proportions. Won CC on maturity from the JB. Her topline on the move is a little extreme for my taste and this is where the dog scored for BOB. CC.
2nd: Tinsley's Cloverwood Drama Queen
4 years, lovely size and shape. Strong head and excellent proportions, good on the move but not in her best coat on the day.
3rd: Kurg's Etsill Skara Brae
Res: Russell's Hawkesmill Ishbelle
