Ramblestaff Knifedge JW


1st: Ramblestaff Knifedge Jw: 12 ½ yr old Bl/br who for a age still has a lovely head shape, nicely shape well put together body, a little heavy but can allow that at his age, moved up and down mat well for age & was a pleasure to judge. Won class on overall breed type. Younger handler shows him very well. Best Veteran Dog & Res Best Veteran in Show.

2nd: New Holland at Jamborob: 8 ½ yr old brindle dog. Decent head shape though ears a little untidy. More athletic in body than first, must say he was in great condition for age. Still a live wire & handle had to get to grips with him on the move but seemed to enjoy his day out. Thank you for bringing him. 


1st Elitebull Hearbreaker For Regalbull: Promising Bl/br, nice clean head shape with distinct stop, nice eye & ear carriage. Straight front with good width, well padded feet, ample bone for age, rib needs to develop but will as he grows, nice top line standing & on the move, good rear angulation for one so young & correct tail carriage. His condition and presentation was first class. His overall balance & clean lines took him to my Best Puppy Dog & Best Puppy in Show.

2nd Minister of Magic at Amianstaff

Pied with decent head, clean foreface enough under jaw, enough stop & dark eyes. Was a little tense when stacked but after he moved relaxed enough to see has a nice body shape, ample bone & rib. Short coupled good rear angulation for age. Young handler done well with him.

3rd Labrastaf Curious George


1ST Dracostaff Baldurs Blade: What a cracker, this dog oozes power, presence & breed type. Excellent head shape of good proportions, distinct stop, dark eye of correct placement, well pronounced cheek muscles & good under jaw, correct mouth, neatest of ears which he uses to show his keen stunning expression, strong neck leading into correct shoulder placement no looseness, brisket still needs to come but front straight with good width & bone, nice tight feet, short dark nails. Nice spring of rib for age, good topline & short coupled, good bend of stifle & strong muscular rear quarters. Well let down hocks, correct tail carriage. Once settled I could see he had good movement. Condition & muscle tone was outstanding. If handler can get to grips with him & with some fine tuning this dog should go all the way. Very happy to award him Best Dog & Best in Show. 

2nd Engladian Oughttabefamous: Bl/br dog just into Junior, nice headpiece with keen expression, correct bite, deep stop & neat ears which he used to his advantage. Front straight with good bone finished with neat feet. Enough rib for age & good top line. Would of liked more bend of stifle. Hocks well let down & tail carriage good, moved ok. Condition was first class on this youngster.

1ST Wise Words Jw: Classy 8 ½ year bitch. Her head & expression even now is as good as they come, clean strong & feminine. Strong clean foreface, distinct stop appealing dark eyes, neat ears strong neck flowing into well laid back shoulders, straight front with good lift. Great rib & level top line at all time. Good strong rear angulation & correct tail carriage. Was a live wire on the move for her elderly lady handler but stopped into a perfect free stand. Carrying a bit to much weight but did consider her in final line-up. A bitch in my opinion that should have gained her crown. Happy to award her Best Veteran in Show.

Neat rose ears & when used gave a pleasing expression. Tends to lean into front but when she free stood and relaxed could see front was straight, body shape nice and shapely for age, she moves very well for one so young holding a good top line which in the end one her the class.
