An interesting entry to judge, obviously after nearly 100 at Crufts, this was a more difficult job. But I was pleased with some of the up and coming youngsters. The fronts are improving, now all that is needed is to get more uniformity in size. A keen band of exhibitors, who deserve to get tickets, for it is very rare for there to be less than nearly 40 at every show which is a lot more than lots of breeds who already have CCs. Hopefully the Kennel Club will look again at this breed.
Veteran Dog (1 entry)
|1st||Harding & Whitehill NAROD THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM|
Well the old boy certainly hasn't lost it. He won veteran under me at Crufts '08 & the comments still apply. He still has everything that to me says Toller, from his good head & expression, correct coat, good body proportions to his lovely movement, to me he still is the pattern for the breed for he has beautiful shoulder placement (lacking in so many), the correct bone, balance & tailset. So he is getting on now & starting to spread but so are most of us older ones, his showmanship is still there & he pushed the youngsters hard for RBD.
Puppy Dog (2 entries)
|1st||Morse EUSANIT RED DEVIL ROCKET|
What a difficult class to judge for these two brothers are either end of the scale. 1 had a better shape & a typical head & expression with good bone & feet but at only 10 months needs to come up a bit on the leg for true balance, moved & showed well.
|2nd||Parker & Dixon EUSANIT FIRE CRACKER|
Taller sibling who needs to fill out for balance, preferred 1's head at present but he has a good coat & a good topline with a well set tail & good bone, showed well but must not get any taller & needs to drop into his body for perfection.
Junior Dog (4 entries)
|1st||Reader EUSANIT VISIONS|
Nice junior boy with nice body proportions, moved well, excellent head & expression, nice bone & feet, good coat & condition with excellent muscletone, has lots to like & I look forward to watching his progress.
|2nd||Clark FLANOVA GLENDRONACH|
Another quality dog with a nice topline, good neck & shoulders, well muscled hindquarters, masculine head with a good outlook, moved on well boned legs & feet, good ribcage.

|Res||Morse EUSANIT RED DEVIL ROCKET|
Post Graduate Dog (3 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Rogers EUSANIT TAKE IT EASY|
Slightly heavier than I like & lower on the leg which spoils the balance, but still showed & moved well, held his topline with a correctly set & carried tail, masculine head & expression, good bone & ribcage, nice neck & shoulders.
|2nd||Mortimore JABY PINUS|
Smaller boy with a lovely temperament, good coat put down in excellent condition, nice head & expression, good length of neck, nice bone & ribcage, moved well holding a good head carriage.
Open Dog (4 entries)
|1st||Harding & Whitehill TREVARGH THE ENTERTAINER AT BRIZEWOOD|
Typical male in excellent coat & condition, lovely masculine head & expression, very masculine outlook with good body proportions, nice neck & shoulders, good bone & feet, good topline & tailset, came alive on the move, have liked him before & can see no reason to change my opinion, beat his sire for BD & went on for type & quality to take BOB.
|2nd||Westwood & Johnson CAN/IR SH CH LITTLERIVER'S COLONIAL BOY WITH TOLLYHIMMEL (IMP CAN)|
Very close up masculine boy of quality, good bone & feet, like his type & am pleased with his progress, he seems to be siring some interesting pups too, masculine head & expression, well set ears of the correct size, good neck & shoulders, lovely ribcage & well muscled hindquarters, moved with purpose & drive with a good topline & well carried tail. RBD.

8 years but still able to hold her own, may have been alone here but still won well. Very feminine in outlook & a good size & shape, lovely head & expression, good coat in excellent condition, good neck & tailset with good hindquarters, moved well.
Puppy Bitch (5 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Westwood EUSANIT SKYS ROCKET|
Pretty balanced baby from the same litter as the boys, moved so well for age very settled & having good head carriage in profile, obviously loose in front as to be expected for her age, coming & going but her good points outweigh this. Feminine head & expression with a lovely eye & good ear carriage, good body proportions with a good coat coming, showed well for one so young to take BP.
|2nd||Moult DECOYMANS PIPER MAPLE OF CROFTWELL|
Heavier girl with a pretty head & expression, very feminine in outlook & a good mover, in lovely coat & condition, showed & moved well, nice front assembly & length of body.

Junior Bitch (3 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Black DINASKARREK'S RED VIXEN AT SEAHAVEN|
Good moving feminine bitch who just needs to mature to finish for she has a pretty head & expression, nice neck & shoulders, good body proportions, moved with precision & purpose on well boned legs & feet.
|2nd||Clark FLANOVA TULLIBARDINE|
Smaller bitch who is slightly longer in body which just spoils the picture, she is still young & as she develops she can come up on her legs to balance, nice type with a feminine head & expression, good neck & shoulders, bone & feet, showed & moved well.
