Judge's Critique

Thank you to the Bedlington exhibitors for a lovely entry which I thoroughly enjoyed judging.

Sadly due to a recent bereavement the Committee were not quite at full complement. Well done to Treasurer, Sheila Baldwin, and the rest of the Committee for pulling together and running a super show. Thank you also to my super efficient stewards Chris and Linda Pack with Chris doing a great job of keeping things moving in the ring and Linda doing an equally impressive job on the record keeping.
Overall I felt that the breed is in quite good shape. There are some promising youngsters coming through and there was good competition in a number of classes.
As always with the Bedlingtons finding the correct outline both standing and moving along with the distinctive light and springy movement is a challenge and this can lead to some compromises when judging the breed.
On a less positive side there were a number of different front actions on display today and I felt that one or two of the exhibits could have a bit more length of head to balance with the body.

Minor Puppy Dog or Bitch 3 entries

1st Bishop’s Honeymist Pinky Promise at Chaselyne -good one to start with. Very feminine, super type and a lovely outline which won her the class. She is only a baby but showed flashes of good movement as she settled. Bags of promise. Best puppy bitch.
2nd Turner’s Dunkeswell Teal Pudsey-this boy was as masculine as the winner was feminine. Another with a good outline. Not quite as good up and back as the winner.

Puppy Dog-3 entries

1st Bannister’s Miteymidgets New Vision- quality boy. Lovely size, lovely outline which he held on the move, good coat coming through. I liked his movement, particularly his correct front action. Good tailset and carriage. Beat a nice girl to take best puppy in show.
2nd Dunkeswell Teal Pudsey

Junior Dog-2 entries

1st  Jackson’s Woolytop The Marshman at Padztar- this junior boy is maturing quite well. Good head. Was good up and back which won him the class. A touch long cast.   -
2nd Dunkeswell Teal Pudsey

Yearling Dog-2 entries

1st -Martin’s Honeymist Blue Dreamz - an eyecatcher. Is still maturing but already has a great head, super coat and well presented. Correct outline standing and moving. Good front action. Needs to strengthen a little in rear but there is time for that.
2nd Godden’s Ozbreeze Surprise of the Day at Vakarblue-I liked the overall look of this boy who had a good outline and a correct coat. Good in rear but a little untidy in front and the winner had better muscle tone.  

Post Graduate Dog-2 entries

1st Stannard’s Durhamites Unzip Alastair-masculine, decent head, was a touch long and a bit proud of his tail. Good temperament. 
2nd Jackson’s Woolytop the Saxon at Padztar- super temperament, sound enough in rear, not the coat of the winner and a little wider in front. 

Limit Dog-7 entries, 1 absent

1st Cooper and Davies’ Plumerias Dolphin Striker (imp Ita) -took my eye upon first inspection. Decent head, good mover well presented and handled. When it came to the higher awards I felt that his topline was flattening slightly on the move but he is a competitive dog. 
2nd Kinns’ Kinnuva Dark Sleekster-very workmanlike, ok in outline and moved well. I would like a little more substance on this boy. 

Open Dog-4 entries, 1 absent

An interesting class and I had to work in order to separate the first two.

1st Turner’s L’End Show Mystery Uneverse (imp Rus) JW ShCM Sh CEx -caught my eye on first inspection. Presented a good outline both standing and moving, had a decent coat and moved well up and back. Would perhaps benefit from a touch more substance but a well deserved Res CC.
2nd Scott’s L’End Show Melody Maker (imp Rus) -this boy had more substance and a little more glamour. However I felt that he did not hold his outline so well and was not as impressive up and back. Close decision.

Veteran Dog-6 entries, 1 absent

1st  Pedersen’s Sharnor High Intensity - nice sort, catches the eye as he has a good outline and balance. Was in good condition and well presented. A little broader in skull than some but a well deserved win and finished best veteran in show. 
2nd   Worrall’s Bluesmurf Semper Fidelis -this boy was third in the competitive open class. Good on the move which won him his place here. Tail a touch high.

Champion Dog-1 entry

1st Middlebrook’s Ch Tcheria Tcharleston  -stood alone but today could have taken on some tough competition as he filled my eye for a number of reasons. He is fully mature, masculine but in no way  coarse, one of the best heads of the day complemented by lovely big teeth. He has a lovely outline with the natural arch over the loin both standing and moving and a correctly balanced body. Moved well in all directions and tail carriage was exactly what I was looking for. Well presented and well handled. Won the CC today with a bit to spare and his obvious quality took him right through to BIS.

Breeders Dog-3 entries

1st  Baldwin’s Woolytop the Piper’s Son-nice boy who stood up well to examination. Decent outline and was well presented. Pretty good mover. Would like him a little more masculine. 
2nd Kinnuva Dark Sleester

Good Citizen Dog -2 entries

1st Offer’s Ch Woolytop the Wherryman-easy to see why this boy has his title as he is a striking dog. Good outline, well presented, fully mature, good tail carriage. Just a bit too much of him for me. 
2nd  Kinnuva Summer Pearl -this boy was also in the limit class. Was a little nervy today but did settle a bit in this class. I am sure that his young handler will persevere.

Puppy Bitch-5 entries

1st Cooper and Davies’ Rapharnis Miss Joy Division-maturing quite nicely, decent outline, lovely head carriage, moved well. 
2nd Bannister’s Miteymidgets New Variant-not as forward as the winner but possesses a good outline, moved well with typical front action. Will need plenty of time.

Junior Bitch-6 entries, 1 absent

1st Porter-Manning and Porter’s Woolytop Secret Wispa among Wallaroo-quite a mature young lady and she ticked a number of boxes. Decent coat, ok in outline, good head, ok on the move. Is one to look out for in the future I would think. 
2nd Baldwin’s Woolytop What’s it All About -pressed hard in the class as she too has a good outline and was particularly good in the rear. Just not as mature as the winner.

Yearling Bitch-2 entries

1st Jones’s Toolbox Yes Why Not at Squidlyannes (Imp Swe)-decent girl, is only just 1 year old and was quite steady, good head, good coat, nice feet.
2nd Mitchell’s Paceypaws Patricia-scored well in outline and was a good mover but was a bit apprehensive which pegged her in this class.  

Post Graduate Bitch-3 entries, 1 absent

1st  Paceypaws Patricia -
2nd Martin’s Grace Iz Moskovskoy Bemty-not a bad moving girl but she too was a bit apprehensive and had a bit too much rise in the topline when compared to the winner.  

Limit Bitch-6 entries, 1 absent

1st   Pedersen’s Trurich Summer Dream -decent outline, feminine but with enough substance, decent coat and was very steady which won her the class.
2nd Martin’s Honeymist Crazy Dreamz -lovely type, lovely head and good coat. Correct in front. Was just a bit apprehensive which pegged her today.

Open Bitch-7 entries, 3 absent

1st Scott’s Ch Janmark Just Do It -caught my eye when she came into the ring as she was feminine but still had the requisite substance, decent outline, good feet, moved ok and put in a good performance which she kept up right through the show. CC and eventually Res BIS.
2nd Bishop’s Chaselynne About Thyme-this one also caught my eye when she came into the ring. A bit more glamour than the winner, lovely type, enough substance, looks a picture when standing. Was a bit fidgety on the move however she settled when challenging for the Res CC and her quality saw her through in quite a nice bitch line up. 

Special Beginners Bitch-3 entries

1st  Paceypaws Patricia
2nd  Spiller’s Tunman Tip Top- steady performance and a decent enough outline. A little fine all through for me.

Veteran Bitch-3 entries

1st Godden’s Vakarblue Bacon Buttie -good body, decent coat for her age, good head in balance with the body, moved ok with a springy action.
2nd Jones’ Tcheria Tydfil of Pengerrig -workmanlike, a nice outline when standing, ok in head, not quite the springy footfall of the winner.

Breeders Bitch-3 entries, 1 absent

1st  Baldwin’s Woolytop Leading Lady-liked the type and proportions of this girl, decent head and moved quite well.  
2nd  Bannister’s Miteymidgets Tiewie -decent sort and looked better once she got going. Still has some maturing to do.

Non Breeders Bitch-2 entries

1st  Woolytop Secret Wispa among Wallaroo-
2nd   Corcoran’s Tunman Trust in Me with Gemris -was also in the junior class. Not the quality of the winner but well presented and in good condition.

Good Citizen Bitch-2 entries

1st Jones’ Miteymidgets Little Hottie at Squidlyannes-decent outline and body, ok in head and moved quite well. 
2nd  Grace Iz Moskovskoy Bemty
