The Keeshond Club Open Show 28-01-12

Thank you to the committee for asking me to judge this show. It was a wonderful day with many super dogs to go over.

Minor Puppy Dog – 6 

a beautiful class of puppys with placings that will change many times.
1st : Day’s Foxifayre Pieces Of Eight Among Spitzcav, 6 month old baby with a beautiful compact square body, dark eye and neat ears, well off for bone and strait front, he has the look of being stuffy in neck due to the depth of coat, however does have enough neck when gone over.  Coat colour has to finish clearing but all markings are just starting to show through. This is complimented by short back and high set tight tail. Moved and showed well for one so young
2nd : Reed’s Byquy Because You Can, 7 months old  slightly less balanced at the moment, however he has a decent head piece with a dark eye leading onto a moderate neck with good front assembly.  Coat and colour coming in, has the required marking Moved well.
3rd : Barton’s Collcrist Maximus
Puppy Dog – 2
1st : Eggleston’s Bert Von Ricara (Imp) 10 months attending his first UK show, a dog who took your eye as he came in the ring.  A decent  sized dog with a contrast of light and dark coat colour, with a harsh texture to it, a dark eye with neat ears and a moderate reach of neck, leading to a well laid shoulder and straight legs. Moved well Lost out in challenge due to being tiered but his day will come I am sure. BPD, RBPIS
2nd : Tew’s Bargeway Keen To Rumble, nice honest dog with a nice head and eye mouth correct, colour not as clear as one but coming nicely. Well made with high set tail.

Junior Dog – 3/1wd
1st : Bennett’s Zandvoort Dream Stone, Square dog with correct shoulder placement leading to straight legs and cat like  feet. Foxy head with a dark eye and neat ears, Would like better bite. Moved well once settled.
2nd : Burwin & Tedrow’s Hoadsberg Alexei Square dog but I would like more neck to finish picture, has good colour and size  moved well in front, good head and ears.

Special Yearling Dog – 6, 1ab
1st : Wadmore Smith’s Hunnivoles Woody Valentine, Nicely built dog with a brisk sharp movement, deep chest and straight front, is very well marked and of a good size would just like a darker eye.  Moved well.
2nd : Lindsay’s Enreveyar Exceptional At Mezand, not as compact as 1, but a nicely put together dog with correct colour and coat texture, moved well.

Novice Dog – 2
