Many thanks to Sheilagh Hyde for the invitation to judge this class. We were looked after with breakfast, lunch & tea, also ringside drinks & a bottle
of wine for myself & chocolate for my steward at the end of the day, how thoughtful. A strong class with 1¼ points separating the places. Some superb
handling with teams enjoying their time in the ring & a definite 'let's show off' made this an enjoyable day. Thanks to Val for a stewarding job well
done. I shall certainly ask you again if you're available.
1st Rockin Total Kaos. WS. Mrs K Watson. An attractive merle, very fine & very 'up for it'. Good calm handling kept this bitch
focused throughout the test & gave her a clear win. Well done.
2nd Belverdale Classic Wispa. BC. Mrs A Little. A young bitch with a lot of power. Slightly more erratic in HOL but giving
little away in the rest of the round. One to watch, well done.
3rd Rosehurst Eclat. BC. Mrs N Murrell. A strong well trained bitch whose enthusiasm lost her a few points. On the same mark
as the above but declined the run-off. Well done.
4th Bintibn Ariundle. BC. Mrs S Ison. Just a year old & already in contention. Slight hesitation from handler & attempting to
sit on left turns (Binny that is) the main markables here.
5th Quilters Starlight. WS. Mrs H Murry. Nice bitch, quietly handled. I've written on my sheet, just bits & pieces took you
down to this place.
6th Vikkas Mischief. GSD. Miss J Evans. ARO - good shaped Shepherd for obedience, nice bond between these two not a lot wrong,
glad you were pleased with your place.
Worth a mention, just losing run off with the above - Mr W Bleeze & Cherikee Black Chevri WS, well motivated in initial round, Ippy couldn't quite hurry
back with the dumbbell in the run off.
I enjoyed the day & the novelty of having an Airedale, a Corgi & a Jack Russell working, all of which put major effort in - lovely.
