2014 National Specialty Critique

Thursday, April 17, 2014
Chilliwack, BC

Judge: Peter Towse, Miletree Cavaliers, UK

I would like to thank the committee of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Canada for inviting me to judge their National Specialty Show, 2014. I thank my ring steward for a smooth transition from class to class. I particularly want to thank all the exhibitors for entering for my opinion and appreciate the long distances travelled by them. The show had a wonderful atmosphere and I enjoyed the day. The wonderful evening banquet gave me the chance to meet some old friends as well as making new ones.

1st – SHEEBA FORE CANTEBURY (Am Ch. Sheeba Super-G X Sheeba Express Deloght) Breeder: Karin Ostmann; owners: Bernice Newbury & Kim Gibbs. 7 month old Blenheim with well broken markings, very nice size and well balanced shape with good correct bone. Two dark pigmented eyes in a nicely cushioned face, gave a pretty expression. Good level top line with excellent tail set held well on the move. Good rear angulation and fore square movement. Good coat coming. Wonderful temperament. RESERVE WINNERS DOG & BEST PUPPY

2nd – MSFIZZ JOHNNY IS A JOKER (Am Ch. Bekenhall Jailhouse Rock X Ch. Devon’s Victoria of MsFizz) Breeder/owner: Mary Kalyniuk. 6 month old Blenheim, also well broken, with rich coloured markings. A smaller puppy than winner. Slighter in bone and body and would benefit from a little more weight. Large eyes giving a pretty expression. Top line a little soft at the moment. Movement not as tight as the winner. Good temperament

1st – MINGCHEN TAKE A CHANCE (Aranel Revelation X Ch. Mingchen Dancing With Stars) Breeder: Louise Pearce; owner: Linda McCarver. Nearly 12 month old richly marked, well broken Blenheim. Good ear set frames a pair of nice dark eyes, giving a pleasant expression. Nose a little off today and teeth need to finish changing. Nice size and overall shape with moderate bone. Rear not as well angulated as it could be. Rear movement a little close. Good temperament.

12 – 15 MONTH MALE (3 entries, 1 absent)
1st – KIBERGO ROYAL LAD (Ch/Motch Moyola Lad of the Lake X Kibergo New Joy) Breeder: Brigitte Falch; owner: Jennifer McLean. 13 month old richly marked Blenheim. Large dark eyes and a nice expression. Well grown body of nice size and balance. Good rear angulation gave good movement; unfortunately spoilt a little by a tail carried too high but also had a curl.

2nd – KACPER DOBRY ROK (Toraylac Mastermind X Royal Rose Dobry Rok) Breeder: Wioletta Matusiak; owner: Florence Blair. Near 15 month old Blenheim male with lozenge and well broken markings. A smaller dog than winner with slighter bone. The face needs more time to fill out. Eyes could be a little larger. Top line falls from shoulder down over croup, but has a good tail set. Good four square movement. Would benefit from putting on a little more weight. Hopefully all will come with time.

15 – 18 MONTH MALE (1 entry)
1st – PRIMAHAUS DIAMONDS FOR KENRIC (Ch. Sheeba King Arthur X Ch. Kingshaven Diamonds AreForever) Breeder: Linda Hauser; owners: Michele Matheson & Warren Zieper.

2nd – KEWPY’S JERSEY BOY AT TEGART (Ch. Devon’s Guess Who of Kewpy X Kewpy’s Fergie) Breeder: Karen Wills; owner: Cornelia & Keith Tegart. Another richly coloured Blenheim with dark eyes. Shorter than winner in many ways. Shorter in nose (compromised the teeth) shorter in neck and also in loin. Good fore chest, well feathered with clean white bib. Good spring of rib.

Nose has lost some depth of pigment with age, as to be expected. A smaller dog than his classmate and has just lost a little body condition and not in full coat. Moved well but head carriage was not as good as classmate, but a real credit to his owner.
