Eastwood Kennel Association Open Show 2014

18 April 2014
Papillon Judge: Mrs Elaine Stanmore (Altaya)

I was pleased to have such a lovely quality entry, the day before the Club Championship Show. Unfortunately some which looked so lovely standing did not move well in front despite a second try and I can only think this might have been due to the floor surface.

Best of Breed: Sharjoy In The Future
Res. Best of Breed: Lafford Fly The Flag

Junior Dog or Bitch (3, 0)
1st Lees’ Lafford Fly The Flag Very alert and attractive r/s/w dog with a lovely head and intelligent expression, nice neck, shoulders and topline, good parallel hindquarters and bend of stifle, good tailset and hare feet. Moved very well, silky coat of correct texture.RBOB
2nd Allsop’s Jalatemmes Lah De Dah Very pretty r/s/w/ bitch just 7 months old, loved her head and expression, ears well placed of correct shape, especially liked her topline and tailset and she showed with confidence for her age BP
3rd Aitkin’s Lafford Fancy That at Elfuego

Post Graduate Dog or Bitch (2, 0)
1st Thornton’s Sharjoy In The Future Really lovely and very sound black and white dog, so well handled by his young handler, excellent head and expression, well defined stop, well set ears of correct shape, lovely front standing and moving with hare feet, correct topline,tailset and hindquarters. In lovely coat and condition and moved well BOB. I must mention his beautiful kennel mate in the next class who really struck me as soon as she entered the ring but didn’t move as well as I know she can, perhaps due to the floor.
2nd Allsop’s Peluglas Precious Gem

Open Dog or Bitch (5, 1)
A difficult class to judge as some did not move as well as I thought they would
1st Aitkin’s Lafford Fly to Elfuego Attractive tri colour dog, very nice head and expression, long neck, good front , topline, tailset and quarters, in lovely condition. Moved very well but not quite the sparkle of Junior winner when deciding for Res BOB.
