JUDGE: JENNY SMITH (WILLOWSTAFF) – BITCHES
My thanks to the Committee for their invitation to judge Stafford Bitches at this superb venue, the exhibitors for the opportunity to assess this quality entry and the spectators for their enthusiastic support. Principal results were amicably agreed with my co-judge and these were: Dog CC & BEST IN SHOW: Clements’ SAJOJISTAFF BACK IN BLACK; Bitch CC & RESERVE BEST IN SHOW: Folwell & Morris’ ROWELLSTAFF MISS PRADA, BPB & Best Puppy In Show: Pearce’s BULLHAWK DIVALICIOUS, Best Veteran: Lay’s
CH. CARNIG POSITIVE PROFILE, Best Breeder in Breed: Winrow’s JAYNEZE.
MINOR PUPPY BITCH – 14 (2 Abs.)
1st Pearce’s – Bullhawk Divalicious – Black/brindle. As one would expect, very much a baby at just 6 months. Head of good shape and developing nicely. Dark eyes, good mouth, movement slightly loose at this stage but time is on her side. Overall she is the right make and shape and the type of animal I like; clean off the front with sufficient upper arm and of good balance. Pleased to award her BEST PUPPY BITCH and in agreement with my Co-judge: BEST PUPPY IN SHOW – well done and good luck for the future.
2nd Stanway, McCulloch & Russell’s - Waystaff Dutch Pearl – 7½ months. Eye catching white puppy that is more compact in outline with a lovely head shape, piercing black eyes, correct dentition and well angulated rear quarters. Preferred movement of 1.
3rd Jackson’s - Spinnjack Mistletoe Magic
PUPPY BITCH – 7 (2)
1st Taylor & Hale’s - Eskharn Ma Baker. 10 months Black brindle/white front. Nothing overdone, clean all round and well proportioned. Sufficient head with keen expression, darkest of eyes, good mouth and underjaw. Correct top line, tight fitting coat, well angulated rear quarters and neat feet. Just preferred head shape and overall outline of MPB in the challenge for BPB.
2nd Booth & Grimwood’s – Ramblestaff Jorja On My Mind. 10 months Black brindle and more of her all round, being well boned with good strength of head and pleasing expression. Another with dark eyes, neat ears, and strong muzzle although slightly heavy in flew and feet could be neater. Sound enough with good overall balance.
3rd Hemstock’s – Jolihem Constellation
JUNIOR BITCH – 15 (1)
1st Frankland’s - Aldwych Stop and Stare – and yes I did! 15½ months Black/brindle not overdone in any way. Nice type of head with more to come. Dark eyes, neat ears, correct length of muzzle. Clean off the front, good feet, well balanced, tight coat, correctly angulated rear quarters, moved well. Winner of a quality class - liked her very much and will watch her future progress with interest.
2nd Fawkes – Town Secret. 14 months black/brindle. A close decision between 2 & 3; preferred her slightly more athletic outline but liked the head type of (3). Nice style of animal with correct amount of bone and of good balance with straight front and required lift. Movement ok but not quite as fluid as (1). Head of correct proportions, good bite, dark eyes and neat ears. Another quality bitch in this good class.
3rd Norton’s – Mintmar Look Again For Tikkurilan. 12 months brindle/white front, only just out of puppy. Lovely head and expression with defined stop. Front straight and well boned and slightly stronger through than 1 or 2. Sound on the move, maintaining level top line. Improved fitness will come with maturity.
YEARLING BITCH – 13 (3)
1st Metcalf’s - Darkridge Contradiction. 21 months brindle/white front. Well proportioned head with good length of muzzle, sufficient underjaw, dark enough eyes and correct ear carriage. A nice type of bitch, however would benefit from displaying a little more animation and could be a shade fitter.
2nd Bouter-Feenstra’s – Old Cross Guns Dearbhail Diabhal. 20 months Black/brindle. Different type to (1) and not as athletic in outline, but nevertheless another quality bitch that was well muscled, compact and short coupled. Possesses a well defined head with super expression, dark eyes and correctly held ears. Exhibited in clean, fit condition and well handled.
3rd Williams’ – Gwynford Celtic Gypsy. Another attractive brindle with white front of 16 months with good head strength and attractive expression, well enough balanced with nice amount of lift that moved and showed well.
NOVICE BITCH – 3 (0)
1st Hemstock’s - Jolihem Constellation. 8 months, 3rd in Puppy. Red/white front. Head of good strength with dark mask, dark eyes, strong in muzzle and with good depth of underjaw. Body short coupled and well boned with good bend of stifle. Would prefer a shade more upper arm for better overall balance and top line needs to settle.
2nd Morris’ - Aymstaff Red Hot Caper. Standard red of 9½ months. Res. in Puppy. Possessing a well proportioned head with lovely expression, dark eyes, ears slightly heavy but held correctly. Well boned, compact with clean, short coat and correct rear quarters. Not quite the cleanliness of front I prefer and would benefit from being somewhat fitter.
3rd Edwards’ – Rowellstaff Emily Edwards – 7½ months
GRADUATE BITCH – 10 (0)
1st Birchall’s - Bannetyke Maiden’s Blush. Red with white front of 2 years. Well defined head with dark round eyes, black mask, neat enough ears and good bite. An athletic looking bitch, particularly in profile. Well proportioned body with enough lift for balance and correctly angulated rear quarters and good strength of bone. Moved soundly.
2nd Norman & Coates – Megastelle Crazy Chick. 3½ years black brindle that is clean all round with no exaggerations, clean shoulder line and correct amount of lift. Good top line and well angulated rear quarters. To be critical would prefer a shade more head development at this stage and she is a little flighty in the ears, but nevertheless she is of the right make and shape and of the type I prefer.
3rd Crick’s – Jessie Rose of Crickelstaff. 12½ months brindle/white front, placed in JB. An attractive, standard type of bitch who will do her share of winning; not quite as athletic as I prefer, but there is a lot to like about her. Super headed with lovely expression, enhanced by dark eyes and neat ears. Compact and short coupled, in fit condition with good rear quarters and well turned out.
POST GRADUATE BITCH – 18 (2)
1st Scott’s - Evas Little Zula at Spenstaff. Black/brindle of just over 2 years and well up to size. Clean head with good expression, dark round eyes and good dentition; ears a little flighty but did not detract. Body well balanced, exhibiting a clean outline without exaggeration and with correct front and rear angulations. Feet could be tidier. Nice bitch that is very much my type and that exhibited plenty of ring presence.
2nd Turner’s - Tidestaff Firecracker JW – A lovely mahogany brindle/white front of just over 2 years. Possessing a super head without excess flesh, dark eyes, good strength of muzzle and correct mouth. Body balanced and well boned with good top line. Close decision. Nice type of bitch who I like, but who lacked animation on the day.
3rd Foster & McDonald’s – Tusselstaff Black Fury. An attractive black/brindle that is very much in the style I prefer. She possesses a lovely head type, is balanced, fit and not overdone in any way. Just lost out on front action.
LIMIT BITCH – 25 (4) A super class with a quality line up of bitches.
1st Manito’s – Dynastaff Miss Complex. Black/brindle/white front of 2½ years. A top quality bitch that is straight off the front with just the right amount of lift to give correct overall balance. Head strong and well defined with dark eyes and good strength of muzzle housing big teeth. She is well boned, having strength without coarseness, with a level top line and well angulated rear quarters and shown in fit condition. She is very much my type of bitch and just what I was looking for. An extremely close decision for the top honours today. Best of luck for the future - sure she will make it.
2nd Wild’s – Wildstaff Jo Black JW. Black/brindle of 3 years and another superb bitch of the highest quality and a close decision – just splitting hairs re. cleanliness of muzzle. Another who had a nice amount of lift giving good overall balance and correct angulations exemplified in her quality of movement. She was in super condition with tight, gleaming coat, and good muscle definition. A prime example of a fit, healthy animal that looks so much better than one which is over pared down. Overall a very tidy bitch, and one which featured amongst my top choices of the day.
3rd Dillon’s – Cragails Indian Summer. Black/brindle/white front of just under 3 years. Another top quality specimen who I liked very much – clean, balanced, fit and athletic with a super head and expression – just preferred the rear assembly of 1 & 2 but another who will go on to greater things I am sure.
OPEN BITCH – 13 (1)
1st Folwell & Morris’ - Rowellstaff Miss Prada. Top quality Red with dark mask of almost 5 years and in her prime. Well defined head with lovely expression complemented by dark round eyes, neat ears and with good strength of muzzle housing strong white teeth. She has the cleanest of fronts with correct amount of lift and exhibits superb balance from every angle. Her body is well defined with a level top line, good length of upper arm and correct front and rear angulations. Overall a fit, athletic bitch who was turned out in excellent condition and who filled my eye – she was exactly what I was looking for and just my type. Delighted to award her the CC (her 3rd) & RESERVE BEST IN SHOW. Congratulations on achieving her title.
2nd Clements’ – Wardwelstaff My Fair Lady. Dark brindle of 5 years and fully mature. I was interested to note she is the Dam of the DCC/BOB winner and I have awarded the CC to her Sire and RCC to her Dam on previous occasions. Another super quality bitch of the type I was seeking who was shown in fit condition and moved very well. She has the most wonderful head which is well defined and of correct proportions and a superb expression. She is well proportioned, clean all round with excellent overall balance, and correct front and rear angulations. A pleasure to award her the RCC – well done and good luck.
3rd Hopkins’ - Ch Trufflestaff Monifa Kanika JW. Black brindle of 2 years completing another trio of super bitches and unlucky to come up against both the CC & RCC in this class. A Champion of the highest quality, who is balanced and clean all round, having slightly less lift than 1 or 2. She is compact, balanced with a level top line and is a super mover. Although not quite the expression I prefer, her head is well defined with dark, round eyes, correct dentition and good strength of muzzle. Thank you for the opportunity to assess her.
VETERAN BITCH – 5 (0) Thanks to all those who entered this class; these old girls were a credit to you and our breed and it was a real pleasure
1st King’s - Krackin Kola. Brindle/white front of 8½ years and in the most wonderful condition in spite of her advancing years. Nice dark round eyes, clean muzzle, neat ear carriage, mouth showing the expected degree of wear and tear but correct bite. Fabulous balance and fitness level for one of this age – well impressed – nice bitch, liked her.
2nd Norton’s – Ch Tikkurilan Poison Ivy. Brindle/white front of 11½ years. Another quality animal that is stronger through than (1). She is balanced with good bone and a level top line. She still maintains a strong head with dark round eyes, good muzzle strength and neat ears and was in good condition. Thanks for bringing her.
3rd Tittley & Bosanko’s – Spearhead Jewel Jade. Brindle/white and an old favourite of mine – lovely head shape with dark eyes and neat ears and well proportioned body with a degree of lift. Still going strong at 11½ years. Just lost out on fitness.
Res: O’Connor’s - Bearcrest En Vogue at Chezatree – 9 years
