The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Club held an open show where there was super hospitality, I really enjoyed my day. BIS was Trevargh The Entertainer At Brizewood, well I have judged this boy before & even saw him as a real baby, I predicted then that he could emulate his famous kennelmate. He is all that the Standard asks & has a style & panache that makes him a great ambassador of this breed. Having completed my critique, it's interesting how many award winners are by this dog or his father. That is satisfying that the best can reproduce the goods; RBIS, Glendermacki Howes Cragg Among Menstonia, such a quality bitch, liked her size & balance, so much a Toller in outline, slight wedge shape to head, most appealing expression from almond shaped eyes, clean strong jaw, nose capable of taking scent, has angles both ends, short powerful loin, in super coat & muscular condition, goes with confident ground covering strides; BP, Acanuck Soul Rebel of Croftwell, 11 months rich red eyecatching dog, correct skull, well placed eye, strong foreface without being coarse, has bone, flowing topline & ribs that lead back to short developed loin, tail set on just right, active, supple & alert to all around. Lovely quality.


Veteran Dog or Bitch (7 entries)

Pleased that all were in good order.

1stWestwood & Johnson CAN/IR SH CH LITTLERIVER'S COLONIAL BOY WITH TOLLYHIMMEL (IMP CAN)
Alert & masculine with clean balanced lines, correct skull with strong jaw & big nose forming a blunt triangle, well off for bone, stands on good feet, not too long in back, nicely constructed so can move with precision, really good ground cover on the go round. Still a contender.
2ndPalfrey FOXDOWN MY FAIR LADY
9 years bitch, such a lovely girl with good head proportions, ears are set to fall right & pleasing for size, reach of neck from angulated shoulders plus depth of forechest, grand condition & balance, goes soundly.

1stMoult & Savory ACANUCK SOUL REBEL OF CROFTWELL
BP.
2ndWestwood EUSANIT CHASE THE ACE
Just 6 months & not as forward as 1. Stands on good legs & feet, right for size & balance. Hocks look a touch long here, but he will probably grow into them. Pleasing personality.

Junior Dog (5 entries)

1stHarding & Whitehill GLENDERMACKI FOX CRAGG AT BRIZEWOOD
This boy stood out for bloom, balance & quality, loved his head with his confident alert temperament showing through, masculine with quality bone, so soundly constructed, in great body & muscletone topped by his red coat.
2ndAndrews ERIKACHEN CAOIMHIN FOR AFTONMARSH
Just not the head of 1 & would prefer a less heavy ear. Pleasing make & shape, quality coat, deserved his place on easy ground cover while retaining his typical shape.

Novice Dog (3 entries, 2 absent)

1stMetcalfe LORNFORD FARA WAYMARK
17 months dog, alert, good skull, balanced foreface, good bite, has bone & body, nicely made. Just a little stilted in movement which is why he didn't rate higher in the last class.

Graduate Dog (4 entries, 2 absent)

1stBaker TIVALAKE COOL YULE
Pleasing make & shape of dog, decent head. Would prefer a touch cleaner cheeks. Scores in front & topline over 2, good body & well sprung ribs.
2ndWard MELANITTA FIREBLADE
A little plain in head & expression, lip rather too cut away & I like a bigger nose. He is alert & working with handler to advantage, good for size & outline.

Post Graduate Dog (3 entries)

This was a quality class, each presented differing pictures.

1stHolt RIVERWATCHER K'EYUSH
The complete balanced dog with type & style, he is skeletally well constructed, has masculinity, really pleasing eye, ear is set right & not too big, classy outline & retains this in his active economical movement. RBD.
2ndBurchell TIVALAKE JINGLE BELL ROCK
This dog has lots going for him but very much at that in between stage. When he fills & develops he should be very smart. Topline can be a touch soft at times & ideally would prefer a smaller ear.

Limit Dog (7 entries, 1 absent)

1stMoossun TASARLA SNOW BLIZZARD AT WINDWHISTLER

2ndKnowles AVONWHARFE REVELATION AT MENSTONIA SHCM

Easy BIS, a class act. BIS.
2ndTitovets & Eremin RUS CH DELONGSTAR DIAMOND DREAM
Tidy honest chap, pleasing colour & shape. Ideally would like more masculinity all through, not fully mature or in full coat. Moves with lively true action.

Puppy Bitch (4 entries)

1stRogers EUSANIT CHASE THE DREAM
7 months bitch of very pleasing type & style, so balanced in head with strength, femininity & balanced proportions throughout, quality bone, straight front legs, decent angulation in front & rear, lively, active & pleasing on the move. Really liked her.
2ndBuckingham KYMIN MEDART
Carrying lots of puppy fat but that's no detriment in one so young. Should present a pleasing outline when she does fine down. She appeals for size with good head type, firm topline, nicely coupled. Her time will come.
