Having been interested in Nova Scotias since the first breed seminar in the UK I found the breed difficult to judge today. I was disappointed & concerned to see such a huge variety in type, size, construction, coat & movement. Dogs far outweighed the bitches in my opinion.
Veteran Dog or Bitch (3 entries)
|1st||Bradley CAMUSMOR KNOCKANDO AT RUDDYDUCK P-BEG EX|
Correct for type, classic head & eye, well made throughout, holds perfect topline & moves true fore & aft showing correct action in profile. In the top three of the breed today.
|2nd||Powley JABY LAVENDER AT DANEHAVEN|
Good dog, similar remarks apply. Just not quite as good in the topline department.
|3rd||Strevens AQUACADIAN FLIN THE RED AT TOLLISTY|
Puppy Dog (no entries)
Junior Dog (1 entry)
|1st||Moxham SANWANN TOP SECRET|
Well handled by a youngster, scored for me in head & expression. Sufficient bone, lovely feet, showed good profile action. Needs to strengthen behind to improve rear movement.
Post Graduate Dog (1 entry)
|1st||Clark FLANOVA ERIYADU ISLAND|
Correct straight front, decent flow of neck into well laid shoulders & holds good firm topline. Needs to sort out his rear action.
Limit Dog (3 entries)
|1st||Powley DANEHAVEN SEVERN|
Won this class on true action fore & aft & showing reach & drive in profile. Good depth to brisket, correct ribbing producing a firm topline, really showed some drive behind.
|2nd||Clark FLANOVA GLENDRONACH|
Preferred him for head & expression. Held good profile outline but rear action let him down.
|3rd||Stacey & Copeland AVONWHARFE HALLELUJAH|
Open Dog (4 entries)
|1st||Harding & Whitehill TREVARGH THE ENTERTAINER AT BRIZEWOOD|
Scored in many departments, ultra sound on the move which comes from correct construction & exercise. Balanced head, good shoulders & upper arm, well bodied, in good jacket, outmoved another good one to BD & BOB.
|2nd||Edridge CAMUSMOR BRUICHLADDICH AT TILITA SHCM|
An old favourite who, although different in type to 1, pushed him all the way. Super animation, totally at one with his handler. Just not as positive & accurate going away & had to settle for RBD.
|3rd||Powley DANEHAVEN DETROIT|
|Res||Roffey IR SH CH CAMUSMOR I HAD A DREAM WITH ACANUCK|
Puppy Bitch (2 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Powley HOLLYMIST AMAZONITE|
So very much a baby, lovely tight feet, excellent topline. Once settled moved true showing a lovely temperament & attitude. BP.
Junior Bitch (no entries)
Post Graduate Bitch (6 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Hanks DANEHAVEN PROSPECT AT LOUISELYN|
Headed a very difficult class to judge. Different types & varying movement. This bitch was by far the best mover fore & aft, holding her topline too.
|2nd||Powley DANEHAVEN TANGIER|
Similar remarks apply here. Just not quite as firm in outline on the move.
|3rd||Strevens DECOYMANS PIPER CINDER AT TOLLISTY|
|Res||Denton SWEET EASTER SURPRISE|
|VHC||Clark DECOYMANS PIPER TANSY AT FLANOVA|
Limit Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Powley DANEHAVEN RED ROCK|
Good straight front, feminine & balanced head, holds good topline, well muscled rearend, moved true fore & aft.
|2nd||Strevens DECOYMANS PIPER MAGGIE AT TOLLISTY|
Just wouldn't get her tail up & paid the price, a pity.
|3rd||Clark FLANOVA TULLIBARDINE|
Open Bitch (2 entries)
|1st||Moult & Savory DECOYMANS PIPER MAPLE OF CROFTWELL|
Despite being out of coat this bitch was ultra sound to go over & moved accordingly. In this entry was pleased to award her the BB.
|2nd||Roffey IR SH CH ALLIANCE DE LA VIE DREAMLAND EXPRES WITH ACANUCK (IMP NLD)|
Has points to offer the breed but just looked so raw & was not quite as true as the Limit bitch.
