BUBA Championship Show, 1st Dec 2018
Many thanks to the NIDC who nominated me for this appointment, to my superb stewards who kept everything running smoothly and of course to the exhibitors for giving me such a good entry.
I was disappointed that some of the dogs were dirty with balls of mud underneath, I can see no excuse. Shoulder placement and short upper arms continue to be a problem with their consequent effect on movement, with exhibits “crabbing” when viewed going away to facilitate forward movement. Please remember that faster does not mean better, in fact often the reverse! I was happy with my winners and pleased to see the puppy short listed in the group.
Minor puppy dog (3, 0 abs)
1st. Emmett & Simons’ Ellemstra Against All Odds.
Black spotted six month old. Confident young man with plenty of bone. Good dark eye and lovely length of neck. Good lay of shoulder, level topline. Well angulated rear and good decoration.
2nd. Mather’s Taliory Saddleside Legend.
Black spotted, 7 months. Lovely expression with good dark eye. Good length of neck leading to good shoulder placement. Good forechest and spring of rib. Needs time for everything to drop and tighten to make his movement more precise, but lots to like.
3rd.Tomlinson’s Swingle River Mr. Smee
Puppy Dog (6, 2)
1st. Locke-Mcfadzen’s Caprilli Panache Over Sassafras.
Black spotted 9months. Happy boy with plenty of bone. Good dark eye and pleasing expression. Good forechest and shoulders. Good spring of rib and correct rear angulation with a good turn of stifle which enabled him to power round the ring with drive. BP
2nd. Green & Sears’ Ain’t Misbehaving at Judally.
Liver spotted. More reserved than 1. Lovely head and neck with good eye colour. Very well spotted. Nicely angulated throughout with no exaggeration. Moved OK but his mind was somewhere else today.
3rd. Mather’s Taliory Saddleside Legend
Junior Dog (8, 1)
1st. Gamble’s Mullabuoy Gambling Boy.
Black spotted, he is slowly maturing into a nice dog. He has lovely dark eyes and a lovely expression. He is in proportion with correct length to height ratio. He has an excellent top line which he keeps on the move and good rib cage with a good spring which still needs to drop more as he matures. Moved soundly.
2nd. Todhunter & Robinson’s Millbelle Rocky Mountain.
Liver spotted young man who moves very well. Shorter coupled than winner. He has a good head which is framed by his well held ears. He has a good deep chest with plenty of heart room. Good round bone and excellent cat feet. Would like a longer upper arm.
3rd. Sims’ Mullabuoy Magic Man for Snowspeeder
Yearling Dog (3, 1)
1st.Todhunter & Robinson’s Millbelle Rocky Mountain.
2nd.Christie’s Laguna Dios Free Falcon By Sophtspot JW
Black spotted 18months. Well off for bone. Excellent expression. Correct lay of shoulder and firm top line. Good rear angulation. Has an excellent length of stride. Think he still needs time to mature more and gain confidence to fulfil his potential.
Post Graduate Dog (7, 2)
1st.Newton & Newton-O’Brien’s Chizzmic What A Carry On.
Liver spotted. Outgoing dog with a good make and shape. Lovely expression and good eye colour. Deep chest with good spring of rib. Moved out well.

3rd. Gardinor’s Dakata Duranta
Limit Dog (14, 2)
1st.Quayle’s Millbelle Kicking Horse At Cubalibre.
Liver spotted youngster of 18 months who is maturing nicely. Shorter coupled than some but moved very soundly with a good length of stride. Lovely head and expression. Good length of neck which flows smoothly into excellent shoulders. Good spring of rib but ideally would like more forechest. Good rear angulation, which allows him to move with precision and drive. Shown in hard muscled condition. RCC
2nd. Donnelly’s Tamilanda Berry Ice Lilly.
Black spotted with lovely expression and darkest of eyes. Good tight feet. Well laid shoulder blade and firm level top line which he kept on the move. Good tail set. Moved soundly, but not really driving today.
3rd. Gibbs’ Phadante Mr. Blue Sky JW
Open Dog (10, 0)
1st.Whincup’s Tamilanda Midnight Lilly JW.
Black spotted who has matured nicely. I’ve watched him grow up and seen that he has days when he can be bone idle and fail to perform despite his handler’s best efforts; today was not one of them, though he had a moment in the challenge! Lovely melting expression with darkest of eyes. Excellent length of neck. Good shoulders, deep rib cage and forechest. Well off for bone. Strong level top line which he kept both standing and on the move. Moved true with plenty of drive and good length of stride. Today his movement was full of impulsion but not in any way rushed. He looked like he could go for hours. Pleased to award him the CC
2nd. Christie’s Ch. Sophtspot Gold Dust JW
Liver spotted young man who I liked a lot. Lovely head and expression with correct amber eyes. Good length of neck and excellent rib cage. Shorter coupled than 1. Well angulated rear end and good tight cat feet. He moved out well with a good length of stride and tracked well. Considered him for RCC.

Well placed shoulders with good length of upper arm which allowed her to stride out. Level topline and good tailset. Strong low set hocks provided all the drive required. Moved true and very positively for such a baby. Sympathetically handled, she gained more and more confidence and showed her boots off. BPB

Another lovely black spotted bitch of just six months. Still growing, she was just a bit bum high today. Lovely head and expression with darkest of eyes. Plenty of bone and nicely decorated.
