The Keeshond Club held an open show where a very good entry was received with a good attendance on
the day. I found there was a great variety of type and in a lot of cases, movement left a lot to be desired.
My main winners however, would stand their own in any company.

BIS was Eastkees Don’t Say A Word; RBIS & BP Neradmik Miss Holly Berry.

PD (2) Andrew’s Neradmik Help The Hero at Maldine, 11 months, correct, well placed ears and nice
head, good front, well coupled, in full bloom & correct coat with good colour. Well balanced, moved
satisfactorily. 2 Miles & Cullen’s Neradmik Game Plan for Lekkerbek, 9 months of good size & dark
eye, ears very well placed but I felt they were a little large which spoiled the expression. Good spring of
rib & substance, moved OK.

JD (5) Sharp-Bale’s Neradmik Handsome Hero, 11 months upstanding dog with masculine well
proportioned head, super ears, excellent dark eye, well arched neck, good bone & rib, well balanced with
straight front, good coat, moved very wall, BBD, BPD; 2 Pattison’s Eastkees Timelord, another good
prospect, good head & ears, dark eye, good neck & good body substance, well balanced, moved well; 3
Tew’s Bargeway Mr Bojangles.

ND (4) 1 2 Miles & Cullen’s Neradmik Game Plan for Lekkerbek; 2 Silvester’s Whizzkees Onyx Silver,
smaller than I like but well balanced. Pleasing head, set off by good ears & dark eye. Tended to splay in
front and I would like more of him all round.

PGD (6) 1 Tew’s Bargeway Keen To Rumble, Well balanced dog, pleasing head & eye, good ears, true
front with good tail carriage. Coat could be harsher, moved OK; 2 Wilkin’s Whizzkees Onyx Sampson,
Nice head & ears. Another who tended to splay at the front, but well balanced and moved OK, but I
would prefer more size and substance to him; 3 Houghton’s Liefkees Ambassador

LD (6) 1 Elliot’s Neradmik Boss at Fletilla, good head, dark eye, good ear placement, straight front with
catlike feet, excellent spring of rib, good tail carnage, correct coat, ample bone, moved OK; 2 Lindsay’s
Enrevyar Exceptional with Mezanda, pleasing head & good ears (when used), true front, well balanced,
moved OK but would like more substance behind the rib; 3 Bennett’s Zandvoort Dream stone.

OD (6) 1 Pattison’s Eastkees Don’t say A Word, really took my fancy, nothing flamboyant but everything
correct. Lovely foxlike head, dark eye, good ear placement & well used, straight front with good bone,
short coupled with nice neck & spring of rib with super substance, nice depth of brisket with good tail
carriage, in good coat with good ruff & of true texture, lovely movement both ways. BIS; 2 Hopkins’
