Dog Critique

Dog Critique


Judge: Mrs. L Newman

Thank you so much to the officers and committee of Midland Collie Club for the honour and pleasure of judging males at their championship show. As always, it was a very festive looking show and a lot of work put in from the committee to make it all a success. Thank you also so much to my wonderful stewards Jake Walsh and Michelle Davis, my co-judges Kay Hateley and Sophie Wray-Ramsden and last but not least, to all the exhibitors for their entries and good sportsmanship.

Veteran Dog (3)

1st – White’s Ch Mejola I Am Persuasive - This 9 year old gentleman has such a lovely make and shape and moves as his conformation suggests, lightly and effortlessly, he has a clean well moulded head with a ‘slight but perceptible’ stop and a flat skull, nicely shaped and placed eye giving a kind expression, good ears and ear carriage, beautiful neck, correct front assembly and strong firm topline which he keeps intact whilst on the move, correct hind angulation, completely sound although starting to show his maturating years, coat of correct texture

2nd – Skinner’s Nikal It’s Gud To Be Black - 11 years old and moves with the vitality of a younger dog, his head, whilst balanced is too strong in skull for me and his eye rather round, correct head planes, well moulded foreface, rather wide set ears and I would like more neck, adequate angulation front and back, moves well from all angles keeping his topline, in excellent coat condition

3rd – Scott’s Aniesh Touch of Black

Minor Puppy Dog (3 – 1 absent)

1st – Blakie’s Kourika You’ll Do For Me - Such a happy and carefree puppy and with so much promise, I loved his eye and expression, all coming from a very well balanced head with lovely moulding and a good underjaw, very clean and free from exaggerations, he has neat ears which he uses well, well put together with lovely bone, neat feet and developing nicely in body, his proportions are good and he holds himself well, coat of correct texture, I was very tempted to award him BPD but at the moment he is moving rather erratically, although with great ‘gusto’! I will look forward to watch his development as he settles into ‘show mode’.

2nd – Iley’s Ileyda Toto Wolff - Tricolour who was more mature than the winner but a little unsure of himself today, balanced head although I would prefer a little less depth through and a flatter skull and not quite the eye of the winner, good length of neck, well angulated front and back, good depth of chest and spring of rib, profuse coat of good colour and glamorous markings, moved well around the ring when viewed sideways.

Puppy Dog (3)

1st – Brooker’s Corisian Parisian Magic - Masculine and upstanding sable with some ring presence, standing presents a very well balanced overall picture, well moulded head although slightly deep through, nicely shaped and placed eye giving a pleasing expression, I would prefer slightly lighter ears and tighter ear carriage, he has a good reach of neck and is well angulated front and back, good length of back and level topline all contributing to his smart looking appearance, moved well enough although a little loose on the move when viewed sideways, hopefully this will improve with time but a promising young puppy and very well schooled and well presented.

2nd – Howard, Newton & Patterson’s Ladnar Dreamchaser - Blue who stood fore square and with a nice outline, pleasant head with a flat skull and a good underjaw, I would prefer a better lip line, good reach of neck, a little steep in upper arm, good hind angulation, well developed in body with ample bone and well muscled, moved soundly and steadily with a firm topline, I hope his colour will get clearer as he matures.

3rd – Mellor’s Lillyway Lemon Spritzer

Junior Dog (5 – 2 absent)

1st – Lockyer’s Gataj Out Of The Woods - Immaculately presented sable who is an instant eye catcher, well balanced head and a nice eye, I would prefer a slightly better moulding of foreface and his ears are a little wide set but he uses them well, adequate neck and front angulation, well developed in body, good topline when standing and good hind angulation, moves well coming and going.

2nd – Milligan & Marley’s Alfsden He Lives In You – A good sized blue with a well balanced head, he has a soft and kind eye, good ears which he uses well, for me, his head planes could be slightly straighter and more parallel, quite well constructed and angulated and he has a wither, adequate neck, moves well enough, nicely coloured with good markings.

3rd – Boyle’s Monsolana Aspire To Inspire over Barrenclough

Special Yearling Dog (5 – 1 absent)

1st – Turner’s Chantique Magical Mystery – profusely coated sable, however, underneath is quite a well made dog, masculine well moulded head, nicely shaped and placed eyes giving a soft expression, I would prefer a little less depth in head and his ears are too wide set for me, adequate neck, well angulated front and back, well bodied and moved quite freely

2nd – Spendelow’s Uffspring The Understudy – A good sized tricolour who is quite pleasant, nicely moulded and clean head which is balanced, pleasant eye, ears a little wide, enough neck and angulation, excellent spring and depth of rib and in great coat condition, I would prefer a better topline, a little hesitant on the floor which affected his movement

3rd – Boyle’s Monsolana Aspire To Inspire over Barrenclough

Maiden Dog (2 – 1 absent)

1st – Pryor’s Aqualita Wind of Change – A good sized and masculine sable with good make and shape, head a little strong and deep in skull also accentuated by heavy ears and his eye could be darker, strong underjaw, good reach of neck, well angulated front and back, correct spring of rib and depth of chest, in good coat of correct texture, balanced although a little loose on the move and tending to crab but an attractive outline when standing

Graduate Dog (4 – 1 absent)

1st – Growcott’s Lillyway Legacy - A well made tricolour dog who is masculine and has nice body proportions, his head has a lovely moulding of foreface and he has a very nice eye but, for me, his skull is too deep and strong, good reach of neck, nicely angulated although a little short and steep in upper arm, excellent spring of rib and depth of chest and moved well enough from all angles, jet black coat of good texture

2nd – Phillips’ Essanjay Against All Odds - Upstanding tricolour of good size and with sound conformation and moved well viewed from all angles, keeping his topline firmly intact, good reach of neck and he has a wither,  well angulated front and back, strong and firm in body with good spring of rib, proportionally well balanced and coat of correct texture, his head also is a little strong for me but he does not have the expression of the winner

3rd - Scott’s Whatacoo The One And Only with Aniesh

Post Graduate Dog (4 – 1 absent)

1st – Singh’s Tiganlea Task Master at Trenic - Blue merle with a nice quality look about him, his head is well moulded and he has a pleasant eye and expression, good ears although a little wide set but uses his ears well, good neck and topline, well constructed and gives a balanced outline, presented in lovely coat and condition and his blue is a nice colour, moved well and freely although rather proud of his tail

2nd – White’s Camanna Chasingclouds over Mejola - Also a blue merle and looking at this dog standing I thought he was going to win the class as his posture is quite commanding and he is very well balanced overall standing four square, elegant yet has substance, pleasant head and good underjaw although I preferred the expression of the winner, he is well angulated and has a sound body, moves well coming and going but I was a little disappointed with his side gait and he also was a little proud of his tail

3rd – Gautrey’s Lillyway Landwind

Mid Limit Dog (1)

1st – Jones’ Broolynson Black Diamond with Dancol - Tricolour in gleaming coat and beautiful condition and so well presented, clean head although could be a little better balanced and flatter in skull, nicely shaped and placed eye giving a pleasant expression, ears a little wide set, good neck, a little steep in upper arm otherwise well angulated, a little close behind but moved freely and effortlessly, jet black in colour and coat of correct texture

Limit Dog (6)

1st – Blakie’s Kourika King Pin - I liked this boy, an attractive blue in excellent condition, clean and well moulded head and a nice expression, very alert and with neat ears and good ear carriage, I would prefer a little less depth through in head, good neck and topline, very well bodied and well angulated front and back which showed in his free and easy movement, perfectly balanced and effortless

2nd – Annable’s Mejola Dangerous Liaison - This blue merle was out of coat but scored for his soundness and movement, so light on his feet and a superb topline on the move, a very clean head and nicely shaped and placed eye giving him a kind expression, ears a little wide, good neck, he has a wither and a firm topline, soundly constructed all over which showed in his free flowing movement which won him the placing, I would prefer his colour to be clearer

3rd – Fuller’s Hanvale Arthur Shelby with Damos

Open Dog (8 – 2 absent)      

1st – Geddes’ Ch Ingledene Mercury Risin – I love in particular two things about this dog – first, he has the cleanest head, there is no trace of coarseness or depth and, for me, he has a correct stop, his eye is very nicely shaped and obliquely placed and combined with his neat ears (when he uses them) gives a most kind Collie expression, his conformation is lovely with flowing lines and correct angulation which is what enables him to move with power and purpose, yet light footed, reaching out in front and extending at the rear – this being second thing I love about him, overall he is an elegant and stylish dog, completely free of any cloddiness, his colour is clear and nicely marbled with black as the standard suggests, I was very happy to award him the CC

2nd – Benton & Smith’s Brooklynson El Dorado – Masculine and handsome sable overall presenting a very balanced outline, nicely moulded head and a kind eye and good ears, adequate neck and good topline, well angulated front and back and excellent spring of rib and depth of chest, he has plenty of substance, moved freely and soundly from all angles with good reach and drive, in good coat and shown to his advantage, res CC

3rd – Hassock’s Camanna Codename
