1st Miles' Orlando Bloom At Jaybiem JW.  
Gorgeous headed young dog who has much to
like about him. Lovely shape and so balanced,  loved his expression too. Moving soundly in all

more of him all round.

Novice Dog  (1)
1st Austen's Collansues Excaliber.

Good size and substance .

Graduate Dog  (2)
1st Page's Tulipanos Berni Mr McEnroe (Imp).
Super presentation, correct for make and shape,

Post Graduate Dog  (8, 1)
1st Rickman's Tickbern Philagain.
Smaller dog but correct in many ways, compact body and

excellent quarters, so sound on the move. Needs to spring in rib and body up.

Such a handsome male that screams breed type, is
a picture stood. Super masculine head with nobility and ideal proportions. Compact body yet has
enough leg for bearings, strong bone and body. Straighter angles both ends but totally in sync

in front action at times, had to be my Best Male and  Best in Show.

BOLSOVER & DISTRICT CANINE SOCIETY OPEN SHOW 15th November 2015


Puppy  (1 entry)
1st Granger’s Shirdees Harlow Jean Of Shadybower.
Standing alone, this pretty ten and a half
month old bitch has a lovely dark eye which gives her a kindly expression - width of skull will 
improve on maturity. She already has good length of leg and should make good size.  She has a
lovely temperament although the exuberance of puppyhood meant movement was a little difficult
to assess - however, gait was good when she settled. Best Puppy in Breed.

Junior  (2)
1st King’s Ecalpharas Moonshine Over Leapingwell.
At just over twelve months, this youngster
is maturing well. Nice flat skull with bright dark eye, good dentition. Compact body with good
angulation throughout. Attentive to her owner and very well handled, she moved freely round the
ring keeping her topline level.
2nd Wood’s Kegshe’s Fagan. A seventeen month old, medium sized dog with classic markings -
dark eye and good ear set. Sound temperament. Although his forechest is developing well his
movement today was a little wide at the front. 

Post Graduate  (4, 1)
1st Green’s Waldershelf Here Comes Erik.
Good sized dog, only just out of Junior but not
looking out of place in Post Graduate. Nice flat skull, kind, dark eye, a little loose around the flews
but still filling out his frame. Rear angulation is good and this dog’s forte is his movement –
flowing freely and effortlessly around the ring. In tune with and so attentive to his handler.
Reserve Best of Breed.
2nd Watson’s Stepdasher Sommer Girl.
A feminine bitch shown in beautiful coat. Pleasing head
shape with flashier markings to face. General angulation is good - just carrying a little excess 
weight today which gave her a tendency to roll on the move.
3rd Wood’s Kegshe’s Fagan

Open  (2)
1st Griffiths, Orme & Miles’ Jaybiem Y’euben Chozen.
An excellent example of the breed and
absolutely fit for purpose, this three and a half year old dog stole the show - literally!  Beautifully
proportioned throughout, broad headpiece, strong neck leading to well laid back shoulder. Good
depth of chest and level topline, rounded croup with correct tail-set. Plenty of bone. Good rear
angulation allows him to move with drive around the ring. Very pleased to see him win the Working
Group and even more so when he won Best in Show! Many congratulations!
Best of Breed, Working Group1 and Best in Show.
2nd Green’s Waldershelf All About Edna. Litter sister to the Post Graduate winner, a taller bitch
with plenty of bone. Shown in lovely condition with a profuse coat. Good stop with dark eye, body
developing well. Looks good in profile – although stifle angulation appears a little over-exaggerated
at present, this could improve as she matures and lower thigh fills out. Handled well, it’s nice to
see a dog with spirit in the ring!
Judge - Julie Wakeland (Bramikdel)
