Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Open Show (Special Awards)
15th Scottish February 2020
Judge: Louise Greenhalgh (Lacervali)
Breed Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge the special awards classes at their show. I really appreciated your support and hospitality on the day, particularly after that long drive in very heavy weather, but my welcome from the committee and the exhibitors was warm and friendly.
Thank you to the exhibitors who entered the special awards classes for my opinion and accepted my decisions with good grace. I was pleased with the quality present and that there were no issues with temperaments. Thank you also to my lovely steward who kept us all running smoothly and without them volunteering their time, shows would just not function - much appreciated!
SACJ - Junior 4(0) Entries
- Inglis’s Craigowl Copacabana, a 15th month old blenheim bitch of the correct size typical for the breed, her head and eyes oozed that endearing charm that our lovely breed captivates us with. She is maturing lovely and was very attentive to her handler. Sufficient forequarters and good rear angulation providing the reach and drive to allow her to move freely and soundly. Solid topline both on the move and at rest.
- Gow’s Lyncraeg Black Pearl, 13 month old black and tan bitch, a beautiful head on an exquisite neck and superb shoulder placement. Her movement was as expected with such correct angulations and there were no issues with topline. She had the most beautiful personality but on the day she was pipped to the post by the winner in a close run class.
SACPG - Post Graduate 6 (2) Entries
- White’s Carleny Northern Light, another beautiful black and tan bitch of the correct size. She had an ideal head and muzzle outline with dark pigmentation in and around the eyes. Level topline throughout and her movement was the best in this class, her tailset was a little low but on balance overall she is a very nice dog that oozes quality. I really liked her expression and cheerful personality.
- Slack’s Kinvaar Jumping
Jack Flash at Eversbabes - 2 year old Blenheim dog that I have judged
previously, he has a nice head and eyes to give that soulful expression we
know and love and he also had the most lovely temperament to go with it.
He moved better today than the last time I judged him and it is evident
his owner is working hard on handling him in a sympathetic way to get the
most from him.
SACO - Open 8(3) Entries
- Kynaston’s Granasil Golden
Nugget - 5 year old masculine looking ruby dog. Nice head, almost flat
between the ear with nice ear placement. Eyes dark and round to give a wondrous expression. He knew his job and he did it with style,
moving both round and away with reach and drive whilst maintaining a level
topline. Nice angulation fore and
rear covered with a nice rich ruby coat which was well presented.
- Slack’s Willowheart Louis
- 4 year old male, another I have judged previously. I really enjoyed his
most beautiful face and expression the last time I saw him and today was
no different. Moving well today but just a little too proud of his tail
but other than that he was well presented and sympathetically handled and
just unlucky to meet the winner in this class.
