SHOW REPORT

Championship Show - Saturday 2nd February 2013

Bitches - Katrina Rettie

I would like to thank the committee of Midland BCC and my stewards Sheila and Andrew for making my first CC appointment a lovely day, and also thank you to the exhibitors for a fantastic entry.

I was spoiled for choice in many classes especially limit and Open. I was looking for a Border that looked as if it could work, with that lovely tireless movement with minimum lift of feet, I'm glad to say I did. One thing I am still worried about are dirty teeth and short tails on quite a few.

2 very nice puppy classes to start my day.
Minor Puppy Bitch (11, 1a). A very nice class.
1. DALOND BLUE TO BLACK BAYOU AT LOCHEIL. 8 months old, black & white, lovely feminine dark head, dark eyes, tipped ears, good lay of shoulder. Good topline, good overall body shape for her age, took time to settle but moved well once she listened to handler. RBPB & on Referee's decision RBPIS.
2. GOYTRE SAUCIE MINX IN ARRODARE. 6 months old blue & white, another lovely bitch, not much to separate the 2 but preferred the overall shape of 1st, good head, lovely expression, tipped ears, good length of neck onto good shoulders, moved very good for her age. Well presented and handled.

4. ACULSIA PRINCESS OF DIVA
5. STARSIDE XENA

Puppy Bitch (9, 1wd)
1. ALTRICIA LADY ANGELA. 11 months old blue merle, lovely top class young lady. I completely fell for her, super head lovely feminine expression, tipped ears, good length of neck on to good lay of shoulders and level topline which she held on the move, good depth of chest, very attentive to her handler, lovely mover for a youngster, she got better the more she went round the big ring. Well presented and handled. Will watch her show career with interest. BPB & on Referee's decision BPIS.
2. ETHERIAL CATCH THE DREAM. 10 months old black & white, different build to 1st, longer in body length and height, won this place on her movement, feminine head, heavier ear placement, in good condition, well handled to get best from her.
