East of England Showground, 7th January 2018. Judge: Mr Tim Ball.   Best Dog & BOB Kurg's Ch. Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill Reserve Best Dog Brown's Great Gatsby ze Zihelske Zahrady Best Bitch Russell's Hawkesmill Karamel Reserve Best Bitch Sleight's Mishahda Where It All Began Best Puppy Sleight's Mishahda Where It All Began Junior Dog 1st: Cavanagh's German Dandies' Zorro at Puddockswell 16 mth pepper who appealed for overall type, carries good bone and presented a very nice outline. Muscular neck of nice length, typical topline, rib developing well for age, strong loin and good tail for both set and carriage. Attractive head with broad skull, well domed forehead, good skull to muzzle proportions, strong muzzle and the best of eyes and ears. Soundly constructed boy with well laid shoulders, standing well in front on good feet and muscular hindquarters with well let down hocks. Showy youngster with a super temperament, moving out freely with good self carriage. Postgraduate Dog 1st: Brown's Great Gatsby ze Zihelske Zahrady 20 mth pepper who won this class with some room to spare. Well balanced with strong neck of good length, correct topline, well ribbed back and nicely sprung, muscular loin and excellent tail for set and carriage. Pleasing head with broad skull, nicely domed forehead, correctly proportioned, dark expressive eyes set wide apart and low, correct ears and excellent dentition. Moves so well in profile with excellent self carriage, the best of rears and moving well enough when coming towards. Very well handled. Reserve Best Dog. 2nd: Hubbard & Miller's Dryfevalley Johnny Fox 17 mth mustard. This boy has a delightful headpiece and in fact I preferred his head and expression to that of the winner, however the first scored in overall construction and movement. Broad skull with well domed forehead, correct skull to muzzle proportions, bright expressive eyes of correct colour and set, ears set well back and low, strong muzzle and correct scissor bite. Pleasing outline with nice length of neck, correct topline and tail good for set and carriage. Not rib of winner but he has plenty of time on his side to develop in this area. Could use a little more animation on the move and lacking the extension in front of the winner. Open Dog 1st: Kurg's Ch. Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill Pepper just short of 4 years. I have judged this boy in the past and he’s now at his best and a standout in today’s entry. He excelled all round, is a super type and so good to go over. Delightful head and expression, all male with no suggestion of coarseness, broad skull with well domed forehead, correct stop, good skull to muzzle proportions, the very best of eyes and ears, strong muzzle of good depth and correct scissor bite. He presents the classic silhouette of the breed with strong neck of good length to balance, first class topline and tail just right for set and carriage. Well developed chest, ribbed well back and nicely sprung and strong, muscular loin. Faultless construction both fore and aft, standing so well naturally and moving freely with nice self carriage. Best Dog and BOB. 2nd: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay 4 yr mustard who has lots to like and a wonderful temperament. Attractive head and expression with broad skull, nicely domed forehead, super eye and ear, cheeks gradually tapering to strong muzzle of good depth and correct dentition. Muscular neck of good length, typical topline of the breed, ribbed well back with good spring. Muscular hindquarters with pleasing angulation and hocks well let down but front not his fortune standing or on the move. He moves out well in profile but carrying tail a tad higher than preferred. Quality coat and presentation and well handled. Puppy Bitch 1st: Sleight's Mishahda Where It All Began 11 mth pepper who didn’t have the best expression in the class but overall was the best package. Balanced, feminine girl who presented the typical outline of the breed with strong neck of good length, correct topline, good length to ribcage and rib developing well for age, muscular loin and tail of good set. She is so well made with well laid shoulders, standing well in front on good feet and muscular hindquarters with nice turn of stifle and well let down hocks. Moving freely on the down and back and using herself as she goes. Well presented. Reserve Best Bitch and Best Puppy. 2nd: Stanley's Honey Hope ze Zihelske Zahrady at Waffelin 7 mth mustard. Only a baby and another who appealed for overall type and is nicely balanced. Muscular neck, typical topline of the breed, ribcage extending well back and tail good for set and carriage. Attractive head and expression with good proportions, eyes good for shape and colour and set wide apart, correct ear set and good dentition. Front not her fortune standing or on the move and not the presentation of winner. Moving out well in profile and with good propulsion from the rear. 3rd: Brown's Henrietta Harris ze Zihelske Zahrady Open Bitch 1st: Russell's Hawkesmill Karamel 20 mth mustard who unfortunately was not in full coat and a tad milky underneath. However, she scored for type and was so good to go over. Feminine girl throughout with the most attractive head and expression; broad skull with well domed forehead, correct skull to muzzle proportions, excellent eye and ear, strong muzzle of good depth and correct scissor bite. Balanced in outline with muscular neck of good length, characteristic topline, ribbed well back and nicely sprung, muscular loin and correct tail for both set and carriage. Well constructed all through, moving freely and using herself to advantage. Best Bitch. 2nd: Hubbard's Bonnybeck Chrystal Cascade at Crackerdog 3 yr mustard. Another pleasing exhibit but movement could not match that of winner. Balanced girl with feminine headpiece; good breadth to skull, pleasing skull to muzzle proportions, correct stop, good eye and ear and correct dentition. Muscular neck of nice length, good topline with nice ribbing and good couplings. She stands well in front on good feet and has well muscled thighs. Carrying tail a tad high on the move. Good coat and presentation.

623. Crufts
Birmingham NEC, 9th March 2018. Judge: Mr Paul Keevil (Yazga). I found myself in the somewhat unusual position of being a short notice replacement judge for the scheduled Karen Plastow. Postal entries had already closed and there were just a few days left for online entries when the change of judge was announced. Consequently, it is difficult to know which exhibitors entered under Karen and which under me. However, I did end up with the largest number of dogs for 8 years with 67 Dandies. My apologies if you entered under Karen and were disappointed, but I did my very best to assess the dogs in front of me without favour or bias. It was obvious to me that there were quite a number of, for want of a better term, "novice" exhibitors showing at Crufts for the first time, which I welcomed, and whilst many did not go away with major awards, they all paid the same entry fees and were entitled to the same courtesy and thoroughness from the judge. For a person like me who just adores this breed, each and every one of the Dandies was special and I felt it a great privilege to have so many dogs to look over. However, a judge's job is to find the dogs which in his/her opinion most closely match the breed standard and place them accordingly, which I tried to do. Thank you to all who showed under me. It is traditional in the preamble to a major show critique to give some sort of a "State of the Nation" statement, pointing out where the breed is going wrong and what breeders need to do to address the faults. However, I am not sure how comprehensive a cross-section of the population I had under me, so let me just add just a few comments. I always have in the back of my mind the three vitally important words from start the breed standard: "Game + Workmanlike + Terrier". I look for dogs that are in fit condition and of the correct size. The first paragraph of the Breed Standard really sums up the breed to a tee: "Distinctive head with a beautiful silky covering, with large, wise, intelligent eyes offsetting long, low, weaselly body. Short, strong legs; weatherproof coat." Some dogs I found "over furnished" in topknot and some clearly did not have a weatherproof coat. Movement was generally good with just a few poor backends. Mouths were overall good but I did have a few level mouths. I was delighted with my winners, all of which, for me, ticked all the above boxes.   Dog CC & BOB Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia Reserve Dog CC Rayner's Reidswire Border Battlecry to Rubegud Bitch CC Buckley's German Dandies' Violetta Reserve Bitch CC Deacon's Ch. Cassencarrie Miss Grace at Pennywave Best Puppy France's Miss Sophie di Luna Caprese at Torbrae Veteran Dog 1st: Bromley's Ch. Mishahda Volcanic Storm A Champion coming up for 8 years old and showing no signs of growing old gracefully, enjoyed this moment in the spotlight again. Great pepper coat, can still show the youngsters a thing or two. Junior Dog 1st: Rayner's Reidswire Border Battlecry to Rubegud 15 month old pepper with an outstanding coat, which probably could have been presented better, but his great qualities carried him through today. Correct size, but still with good bone and body. I loved his height to length ratio caped with a correctly set, short tail presented a balanced picture of great potential. Moved straight and true coming and going without excessive flamboyance. If there was just one dog the judge could take home, it probably would have been this one. RDCC. 2nd: Denham's Dentgate Mulberry A different type, larger and longer in the leg than 1 and without the weatherproof jacket demanded for the breed. Well balanced head with a large skull. good eye. Still young with time on his side. 3rd: Perry's Mishahda Nothing Compares at Pogleswood The overall picture of this dog was spoilt for me by an excessive topknot which just made the head look unbalanced. Another larger dog not in the best of jackets today, but the movement was OK. Postgraduate Dog 1st: Hubbard & Miller's Dryfevalley Johnny Fox Large head with well-domed forehead, of correct proportions, dark eyes and a good bite and big teeth, great mustard coat and in good condition, correct topline, tail set and carriage, bit short in rib. Moved out well and with a happy disposition. 2nd: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies River Mersey at Lenacourt Good head with a lovely expression from big round eye well-placed shoulders and strong quarters. Moved and showed well. 3rd: Bell's Reidswire Lord O'Liddesdale Good head and eye, nice coat and furnishings, overall picture spoilt by the turning out one of his feet. Moved OK both ways. Res: Brown's Great Gatsby ze Zihelske Zahrady VHC: Cavanagh's German Dandies' Zorro at Puddockswell Allen's Dandiroyal Sweet William Bailey's Tymeirz Spartan Henry's Trinzy Fait Accompli avec Owlspoint Thomson's Dryfevalley Mister Todd Watson's Dentgate Noel at Hainingloch Limit Dog 1st: Youngs's Inzievar The Goldsmith Well balanced dog, nothing overdone, correctly balanced mustard coat, nice head with big round eye, correct stop and strength in muzzle, big teeth with big nose. At first, he appeared out at shoulders but this was just excessive coat, which can be improved in presentation. Moved well both ways. 2nd: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay Larger dog than my winner. Lovely mustard jacket presented in great condition, with strong head with correct bite. Typical Dandie expression, the movement was OK. 3rd: Drake's Tollcross Tartan Tavish Good size well-balanced pepper with appealing expression and good bite. Correct pepper jacket, nice tight front, but did not show off to his best today. Res: Milliner's Ceilmear Golden Challenger at Millerim VHC: Johnson's Incantocani Augustus Open Dog 1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia Quality pepper of correct size and proportions - nothing over exaggerated about him - he fits the breed standard and you can't really say much more than that. Dark round expressive eyes. great neck, front and lay of shoulder into good topline Lovely inky blue-black colour and silver furnishings, well presented and handled showing off his correct movement - I was delighted to award him this third and qualifying CC and eventual BOB. 2nd: Edwards's Cloverwood Midnight Blue Correct but rather short pepper jacket today. Nice expression and shape of head, expressive eyes and correct ear set. excellent bone, well ribbed and muscled. Not the movement of my winner but considered for the RDCC. 3rd: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger 6 year mustard who is well boned with a strong skull. Good round eye of correct colour and shape. Correct scissor bite and large teeth. Short of coat today, which was a pity but he moved well and obviously was enjoying himself as was his handler. Res: Milliner's Ire Ch. Xenon z Roxburku Sun at Millerim Good Citizenship Dog 1st: Rayner's Reidswire Border Battlecry to Rubegud 2nd: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay Veteran Bitch 1st: Deacon's Ch. Cassencarrie Miss Grace at Pennywave What can you say when you get such a lovely bitch which is nearly 9 years old under you. An absolute credit to her breeder and owner. She still has a lovely outline and is sound and positive on the move. Lovely colours in her pepper coat, good size, not over presented. I was delighted to award her the RBCC. 2nd: Sleight's Cassencarrie Madelaina at Bonnybeck Nice 8 yr old, well bodied, feminine head good eye, clean bite and expression, correct coat of good texture, good tail set. Movement OK. Puppy Bitch 1st: France's Miss Sophie di Luna Caprese at Torbrae 11-month-old Mustard, up to size, nice balanced puppy, confident mover for one so young, I suspect a lot more to come from this young lady. 2nd: Stanley's Honey Hope ze Zihelske Zahrady at Waffelin 10-month mustard. Pretty head and expression with good proportions, well-muscled neck, with correct ear set and good dentition. Needs to tighten in front. Moved well in profile and with good rear drive. 3rd: Brown's Henrietta Harris ze Zihelske Zahrady Two youngsters together, puppy and handler, both obviously enjoying their day out. Correct pepper coat if a little short today. OK for size, nice outline eyes good for shape and colour and set wide apart. Movement was fine. Junior Bitch 1st: Tinsley's Cloverwood Yours Truly Young Pepper bitch just about still in Junior. Overall pleasing dog to go over, correct coat and lovely for size. Nice dark eye, correct mouth and big teeth, a good profile which was kept on the move. I am sure she will do well when she is fully mature. 2nd: Sheppard's Dentgate Sugarberries at Thystine Well presented with typical head and expression correct size and balanced flowing topline and tail-set. Well off for bone and muscle. Unfortunate to meet my winner today. 3rd: Poole's Reidswire Border Bluebell I suspect a classic slow maturing Dandie. Still quite raw, but with a great coat coming and not over furnished. Res: Atkinson's Hullpride Cultured Betty Postgraduate Bitch 1st: McGuinness's Siwop Secret Wish 2-year-old mustard who was very well presented. Feminine nice domed head, dark eye with fine ears, in good crisp coat. Excellent rear, perhaps a little wide in front and still a little "fine" in bone, but a quality bitch. 2nd: Hubbard's Bonnybeck Chrystal Cascade at Crackerdog Bigger than my winner, which cost her. Correct weasely body shape. Large head and skull, dark eyes, good bite with big strong dentition Front need to tighten as it spoils the picture when standing, as she has nice big feet. 3rd: Throup's Cassencarrie Cleo Rose Mustard of good length and outline. Moved and showed well. Pleasing head and eye, up to size. Res: Johnson & Stanford's Incantocani Florenza VHC: Kelly's Bonnybeck Delilah Creek Green's Hawkesmill Keepsake for Abbeywater Powis & Wallen's Siwop Black Baccara Rose Limit Bitch 1st: Buckley's German Dandies' Violetta Top quality mustard who really stood out today. Correct for size with the most beautiful rich colour and well textured coat. Good balance of height to length, feminine head with good mouth and depth of muzzle, dark hazel eye and low set ears. Shown in top condition, well-muscled and fit, she moved very well on her well-padded feet, holding her outline. Delighted to award her a well-deserved BCC. 2nd: Davies's Meriel's Munnings Nice little mustard, who moved quite well. good shoulder placement and balanced in length. Perhaps a tad more neck would really complete the picture. 3rd: Russell's Hawkesmill Karamel Good mustard, with attractive head and expression well boned. Balanced in outline with muscular neck of good length and topline nicely sprung ribs. Free mover. Res: Atkinson's Kingcottage Abilene West VHC: Powis & Wallen's Siwop Black Baccara Rose Open Bitch 1st: Henry's Trinzy Hair N'Graces Pretty mustard, perhaps a touch too flashy in presentation for my tastes but her quality took her through to win the class. Good head, dark eye and good bite. Good outline, perhaps needing just a touch more length to really finish off the picture. Well ribbed tight shoulders and good feet. 2nd: Jacka-Slater's Cloverwood Duchess May Another nice mustard but of different type to the class winner. Nice outline, but the overall picture was spoilt for me because of a slight lacking of neck. Short muscular legs, good tail set and carriage. Sound and free mover. 3rd: Harcourt-Morris's Int Ch. Dainty Dandies Royal Dutch Emma Lenacourt Well-presented mustard, nicely put together and balanced overall with feminine expression. Movement was OK.

Newchurch Parish Hall, Culcheth, 22nd April 2018. Judge: Mr Colin Powell (Bowtman). It’s always nice to be considered for any club show and judge it. The officers and committee made my wife and I feel very welcome at the show. Atmosphere was good and exhibitors took their placings sportingly. I would like to thank all for entering their dogs under me, and my steward for making the show run smoothly. I wish the club every success in the future.   Best Dog & BIS Booth's Ch.
