Northern English Springer Spaniel Society

I thoroughly enjoyed my day and thank everyone for the flattering entry and for the superb atmosphere. Thanks also to the hard working committee for a show very well run. The weather meant that I had to judge indoors and although the ring was plenty big enough, I felt that it affected the movement of some and so on another day placings may have changed. However, one has to judge on the day and I was more than happy with my final line up’s. Males were stronger in quality today and there were some close decisions.

Veteran Dog or Bitch (2, 1a)

1st Ozannes’ Jsy Ch Trimere Tender Touch at Lyntonridge
7 year old l/w in excellent condition. Pretty head. Good for size and balanced outline. Has a decent front on her, good reach of neck and correct topline, Moved well, on the right track and has a lovely temperament.

Minor Puppy Dog (1)

1st Calverts’ Calvdale Allegedly
Very promising b/w of obvious quality. Only 6 months but already much of a piece. Superb coat and in excellent condition. Well off for bone and a decent head and expression. Stood he presents a pleasing, typical outline and is well angulated behind. On the move he put everything where it should and is particularly eye-catching in profile. I feel that he will be an asset to the colour. Liked him, BPIS

Puppy Dog (3)

1st Topliss’ Peasblossom Escape to Beresford
Mature puppy who is decent for type and has a lovely head and expression. Scores particularly in hind angulation and he uses this well on the move. Just needs to finish in middle piece for the complete picture and today he was untidy in front.
2nd Calverts’ Calvdale Smooth Criminal
Smart youngster who stacked I thought would be my winner. Love him for type and is in excellent condition. However he threw all his chances away on the move but has a certain future I’m sure.
3rd Glendinnings’ Plaiglen Sea Of Stars

Junior Dog (6)

1st Cokells’ Trimere Transition to Carlyquinn JW
Beautiful dog for type and in superb condition. Stacked up he presents a fabulous shape, completely balanced and typical. His head is ok but he scores in expression. Moves very well and is eye-catching in profile. A titleholder with an average amount of luck and worthy of it he will be too. I liked him enormously and thought at one point he would be hard to beat. However, in the challenge his mind went elsewhere and he had to settle for RBD.
2nd Larges’ Mompesson Flawless
Looks better on the move and has everything in the right place. Not the expression of the winner but good for type and in excellent condition for body and coat.
3rd Jenkinsons’ Eastriding Armani Black
4th Joyces’ Shelcasrie Head Over Heels

Yearling Dog (3)

1st Houses’ Gleadsbury Whats His Name
Mid teenage dog who scores on type. Decent head and expression. Well off for bone and well bodied. Moved well, particularly in profile, where he covers a lot of ground.
2nd Joyces’ Shelcasrie Head Over Heels
Tri dog who is beautifully presented and a temperament to cherish. Has a lovely head and is balanced fore and aft. Would just like him a little shorter in loin for complete balance.
3rd Drinkalls’ Mompesson Tribute to Esscroft

Maiden Dog (1)

1st Calverts’ Calvdale Allegedly

Novice Dog (2)

1st Calverts’ Calvdale Smooth Criminal

L/w dog in excellent condition. Presents a decent picture stacked but was erratic on the move especially coming and going.

1st Houses’ Gleadsbury Whats His Name
2nd Larges’ Mompesson Flawless
3rd Happs’ Beresford Beat The Clock with Emianna

Lovely dog for type. Well balanced and a super head and expression. Moves very well up and back and is eye-catching in profile where he is typical and covers the ground.
2nd Guys’ Calvdale False Arrest
Impressive stacked and is good to go over. Presented well. Pleasing in head. Moved well when he put his mind to it.
3rd Goodmans’ Roqfolly Echo Beach
4th Thornhills’ Chelmeress Peter Pan

Limit Dog (8, 2a)

1st Topliss’ Petranella Perfick Choice for Beresford
Liked this boy very much. He is fabulous for type and is super to go over. In excellent condition and completely balanced stacked. Great head
and expression, good neck and good in front. On the move he is precise and in profile covers the ground and will always take the eye. Another who should be a titleholder.
2nd Traczs’ Meadowdale Alabama Slammer at Acregate ShCM
Nice boy with the most lovely head and expression. Similar remarks apply and I liked him very much. Just a little wide at elbow today.
3rd Warreners’ Cepen Changing Places at Waterswarren JW
4th Bashforths’ Alanea Warrior of Jorobaden

Open Dog (2)

1st Bott & Allens’ Sh Ch Trimere Talking Point of Allenie JW
Mature l/w who is bang on form. Presented to perfection and in the most fabulous condition. Lovely head and expression. Decent for neck and topline, well off for bone and well bodied. On the move he is effortless and very precise up and back. With this performance he could not be denied BD & BIS.
2nd Guys’ Calvdale John O’Connor
Slightly different in type but still with a hell of a lot to like. Beautifully presented and condition and another who moved well. Just not the front or feet of the winner.

Special Beginners Dog (3, 1a)

1st Larges’ Mompesson Flawless
2nd Happs’ Beresford Beat The Clock with Emianna
Heavier type with a decent head and expression. Very well presented and handled, presents a decent picture but would just prefer him better in front.
