1st TYKABUL URBAN LEGEND - Quite a show off, eager to please short compact, won on merit.
2nd SEIGHFORD GRAND SLAM - B/B. a little
longer cast, enough to like.
3rd TYKABUL ULTIMATE FORCE - 3 nice baby’s.
1st SEIGHFORD TIKA MISALA - My favourite food, and this baby wet my
appetite, B/B. as I said class I do not like to doing, but safer with a bitch,
than a baby dog, one for the top draw I hope, not a lot to access, she handled
well, femine features, stood out in this class.
2nd CHABLAKMOR BABY DOLL - A shade heavier than 1.st. sweet head
shape, good pigmentation, moved at advantage.
3rd STAFFLYTE SKYS THE LIMIT - Compact at this stage, lovely bone, well
1st MOSSTROOPER TALK MEMPHIS - B/B. of quality liked his head shape, darkest of eyes, which were round, no apparent cheek bumps yet, clean lipped, nice teeth, sound in front, shade long in back, going through the gangly stage, good bend of stifle, well handled.
2nd GRAVEHEART MYSTERY MAN - Had not as developed as 1st. over all picture was good, front sound, tail set correct, moved with purpose.
3rd PITSTAFF DEVIL INDESGISE - More mature than 1 and . Could change places another day.
1st BOLDHART FANCY THIS N FANCY THAT - What a puppy, fawn with black mask, wish she was mine, femine head, darkest of eyes, good mouth at this age, not to wide in front, brisket showing slightly, enough bone for a baby, level top line, handled very ably, will keep a eye out for this one.
2nd TYKABUL THINK TWICE - This kennel has some nice stuff. B/B.
different to 1st. a bit more on the head, and in body, wider in front, and tad
longer in back, still looked the part.
3rd BELLEDON WARRIOR PRINCESS - Lovely red, more mature than 1st. and 2nd. good tight coat, in gleaming condition.
1st TYKABUL RULES DONT APPLY - What a cracker, b/b. beautiful head shape, correct ear carriage, dark round eye, a shade long in back, I hope coat will improve with maturity. Well handled.
2nd VERYSHARP BLACK MAMBA- I liked this one alot, punishing head, eyes good shape, could be darker, not to short in stop,
strong large teeth, could be cleaner in lip, moved sluggish at first, but
corrected him self.
3rd NEWORDER HEAVY TAR - another good un. In good company today,
movement was erratic.
1st CHERABAH SHES SO FINE - What a stunner every thing in the right
place, nothing to dislike, short compact body, level top line, beautiful coat,
well angulated, gave her best puppy in show.
2nd LINWEST CREATE A STORM- Stood 4 square, not overdone, enough bone,
ample rib, well handled.
3rd SIEGHFORD TWINKLE TOES - Enough to like, longer in muzzle, pleasing
youngster, at this moment, ears a shade heavy, once head develops should be
right. Expertly presented.
1st CHABLAKMOR PRIVATE RYAN - B/B what a quality dog, superb in head,
nice rose ears, a little thick for me, a piercing expression, strong under jaw,
neck just muscling up nicely, into well laid shoulders, enough thickness of
bone, ribbed up, level top line, I would have liked him with some kind of
muscle definition on hindquarters, by now, moved with drive.
2nd JAMELKUR ALL REVD UP - Same remarks as one, but lighter in eye,
ears a shade heavy, deep chest, well off for rib, movement was crabbing at
first, but sorted himself out when asked to move again, well handled by his young
handler, 2 good dogs..
3rd TANAROS BLASTOFF DEMON - Lovely mahogany brindle, which demanded
attention, shame to meet one and two in good nick.
1st HIGHBOURNE PRECOCIOUS - A light brindle, who took my breath away, bang on standard, height and weight, femine head, beautiful set ears, dark round eye, short in neck, tight in lip, powerful with out being over done, well laid back shoulder, flowing into ample spring of rib, a good tuck up, which gave her the edge in this class, well presented in fine fettle, would grace herself in the U.k. well done, CCand BOB wish she was mine.
2nd FAEMOUNT FATAL ATTRACTION - Not dissimilar to one, punishing head, good
round eye, keen expression, good neck and shoulder, smooth coat, muscling up
nicely, handled well.
3rd LINWEST BITTER SWEET - 3 stunning bitches,
different type to winners in this class, just carried some excess weight today.
1st APPLEYARD BASIL BEAU - Good quality brindle, strong in neck, dark
eye for coat colour, nice rose ears, cheek bumps coming along, should be more
pronounced at this age, good scissor bite, short compact stood 4 square, nicely
tucked up in loins, but would have preferred a little more muscle definition on
hind quarters. To complete picture. Carefully handled.
2nd BAJED EYE OPENER - he was just that, has to be assessed before
a opinion is made, a sound Stafford, but just lacked the finishing touches of
one, e.g. muscle tone, and lack of interest, in this good class.
3rd CHABLAKMOR THE RENEGADE - a pleasing exhibit, well off for bone,
ample rib, carried some excess weight today hence this placing.
1st TUSSLER LADY ATHENA - another light brindle, put out in excellent order, another bang in the standard, actually best head of the day, in bitches, not over done, ears of the best, good round eye, cheek bumps apparent, super front, level top line, enough bone and ample rib, her hindquarters are her good points moved with drive, but handler must slow her down, as when she pulls it makes her neck look out of balance with her body. Gave her the RCC and RUBIS. another I wish was mine.
2nd TAROBY WICKED WANDA - another awesome bitch, deserves to be a CH
But unfortunate to meet 1st. today in good order, different type to winner,
but still a nice specimen. Solid in head, round dark eye, piercing expression,
good depth of brisket, a shade heavy today.
3rd BORSTAFF LOLAPALOOZA -
Same remarks as previous, but longer cast, coat needs attention.
My best dog class of the day, quality was
through out, I found I had to fault find when I dwindled the class down, to 10,
then the decision was difficult.
1st CH OURGANG TRULY UNRULY - Not unruly today,
B/B outstanding virtues, strong in head, ears and eyes of correct shape, deep
in stop, strength in muzzle and under jaw, tight lipped, great strength in
neck, leading into powerful shoulders, but I would take care in this
department, as could be overdone if over exercised, deep chast,which gave him
plenty of heart room, good bend of stifle, strong in hindquarters which he
moved with drive expertly handled.
2nd CH MIDNITEAMOUR SIR JACKSON - a dog I liked a lot, a useful Stafford, in
all departments, solid head, good pigmentation, which I thought was light in
eye but his coat colour was such that I forgave this, a light brindle, in the
standard, not to wide in front, ample rib, leading up to a good tuck up in
loins, he moved with drive very gently handled.
3rd CH BELLEDEN RED WARRIOR - superb red, best
one of the day today, punishing head piece, demanded attention, nice
pigmentation, black nails, level top line, tail set carried correctly, these 3
will change place on different days.
1st CH GAMESTER KISS ME - A super red and white of quality in the standard, punishing head piece, very good pigmentation, short in back, level top line, she was overweight today, so was penalised for this in the challenge.
2nd CH HIGHBOURNE VINTAGE CROP - A light brindle out of the top draw, this
kennel have some super bitches , this bitch caught my eye as soon as she came
in the ring, standard was wrote for her, power house of a bitch, good front ,
ample spring of rib, nicely angulated but lost out on looseness under neath,
which distracted her movement, a use ful bitch though.
3rd DIAMONDSTAFF JASMIN - Could not deny this one 3rd in this class
of top quality bitches, a shade heavy for me, a compact package, eyes a little
light, but she did have a lot of white.
1st CH LEATHERWOOD DARE DEVIL -
a superb/b, who caught my eye, he had
true Stafford attitude, and temperament, the way I like my Stafford’s, if you
want a wimp change your breed, yes be vigilant, with your Stafford, a Stafford
should be on his toes not shaking in his shoes so to speak, this dog got my
attention, a head to die for. Very good pigmentation, black nose and nails,
best of mouths today, large canines, the strength of under jaw was awesome,
short power full neck, excellent in shoulder, ample rib, my only criticism, is
a tad long in back, but still short coupled, lovely bend of stifle, hocks well
let down, moved this dog a couple of times could not believe a Stafford with
the depth of bone could move so effortlessly I would say a 40 pound dog that
moved as though he was a 38 pounder, his top line was not his virtue , but I could
not deny him the dog c.c. Thank you.
2nd CH CHERABAH IRONSIDE - a different type to first, a brindle that
would not be out of place in open dog in U.K. a superb, Stafford, with a
balanced head, the best of ear carriage, piercing expression, short in stop,
tight lipped, a honest well balanced dog, compact, well muscled up, I had to
make a decision, 2 very good dogs under 2 different judges they would swap
places no doubt, I would be proud to own both of them so what was it to be? A
tad long in back, which moved with drive, or the compact, standard one, who I
felt moved close behind at the point of hock, if I never moved them again I
might have missed it, so he got the R.C.C. well done.
3rd CH TAROBY UNRIVALED - another good un.
Which stood 4 square, head not as strong as 1 and 2, but his overall balance
got him this place C.C.dog Ch. Leatherwood Dare Devil. R.C.C
A class I enjoyed judging very much
1st VERYSHARP THE SORCERESS - B/B very strong bitch, excelled in head, dark
round eye, short in stop, power full cheek bumps, a shade lippy, short compact,
but another one had some weight to loose, when on the move she was sluggish.
2nd CH HIGHBOURNE MUMMYS PET - In Australian bred. 2 peas in a pod, tiger
brindle, stood 4 square, enough ratio of bone, well sprung in rib, I thought
she was soft in hindquarters, which hindered her movement, which was sluggish.
3rd CHERABAH BORN TO BE WILD - tidy bitch, best of fronts, deep in chest,
good bend of stifle, tail set good, moved close behind today.
