The Great Dane Club – Open Show
19th December 2017
I would like to thank the Great Dane Club for inviting me to judge Bitches at their Open Show. Also, my hard working stewards on the day, and the lovely exhibitors who allowed me to go over their beautifully presented danes.
Minor Puppy Bitch – 6 (1 absent)
1st RI, J, M C Day & Fry’s – Vanmore Melody Maker at Janriche – 7 month fawn bitch, very well constructed throughout, lovely head, with correct ratio of foreface to backskull, dark mask, dark eye, correct bite, just enough drop of lip to complete the head. Lovely arch of neck, flowing into well laid back shoulders, good depth of brisket, correct topline, correct angulation fore and aft, tight feet, moved very well around the ring. Very happy to award this girl Best Puppy Bitch.
2nd Mr & Mrs T&B Harvey’s – Clannalba Laighe N Greine – 8 month fawn bitch, very unlucky to meet 1st on the day, as I am sure these two will swap places many times in the show season to come, slightly smaller overall than 1st, but everything in proportion, similar attributes to 1st, was literally splitting hairs deciding between these two.
Puppy Bitch – 2 (1 absent)
1st JH Middelton’s – Taysca Must Be Cartier – 6 month black bitch, beautiful well proportioned head, dark eye, correct bite, and lovely ear set, which she knows how to use. Well arched neck, into correct shoulder, good topline and strong rear, well angulated fore and aft, moved well once settled, another beautiful puppy which is, I’m sure, going to do very well in the future.
Junior Bitch – 8 (1 absent)
1st Miss T Pocock’s – Tamzdane Cake my Day – 13 month Harlequin bitch, well marked, very well balanced head, correct ears, good bite, loved this girls expression. Well arched neck which flowed into well laid back shoulder, good spring of rib, Good depth to brisket and good width across chest, short coupled strong topline, correct croup and well placed tail set. Well angulated, good depth to brisket and width across chest. Stacked, she is the complete picture, every inch the showgirl, took a little time to settle on the move, as she really wanted to go, but once settled moved well. Awarded Best Bitch, and was happy to see her take Best In show, on the decision of referee Mrs Ann Jacobs.
2nd RI, J, M, C Day’s – Vanmore Sparkling Eyes for Janriche – really liked this girl, she was a bit of a handleful, very playful, but did manage to get over her in the end once she settled. Lovely fawn, good size, beautiful head, dark eye and correct bite. Lovely flowing neck, correct shoulder, and correct topline, tight feet, moved well once settled.
3rd Ms K Kingsley’s – Dainoak Agent Provacateur – 13 month blue bitch, lovely head, with correct proportions, correct ear set, correct bite, nice drop of lip to complete the picture. Slightly heavier in build, but does not detract from her femininity, all girl. Good strong topline, correct angulation, correct feet, moved well.
Yearling Bitch – 4 (2 absent)
1st Ms R Egginton Draysey’s – Jaemluk Amelie of Clunton – well marked harlequin on non show side, slightly heavier markings on show side, handler knew how to show off to best advantage. Lovely looking girl, correct ratios to head, with good drop of lip, correct bite, dark eye. Lovely arch to neck, good topline and nice croup. Good rear angulation, tight feet. Moved out well around the ring.
2nd Ms K Kingsley’s – Dainoak Agent Provacateur – 3rd in Junior
Novice Bitch – 3 (1 absent)
1st Ms K Kingsley’s – Dainoak Agent Provacateur – 3rd in Junior
2nd Mrs L&G Croft – Wanderhund Striptease at Doubtwell – slightly smaller in structure than 1st, well marked Harlequin bitch, good head, with dark eye, correct bite and nice drop of lip. Correct topline, good angulation, tight feet, moved out well, just not with the same purpose as 1st
Post Graduate Bitch – 6 (3 absent)
1st L Newton & Miss A Newton’s – Stpiran Velocette at Shlarra JW ShCM – 21 month fawn, very attractive head, with correct ear set, correct bite, dark eye. Good length to neck into good shoulders and topline, good croup. Good rear angulation and tight feet. Moved very well around the ring.
2nd Mrs A Harrison’s – Jasnettdanes Misty Morning – lovely blue girl, strong, yet feminie head, lovely arch to neck into correct shoulders, good depth to brisket and well sprung ribs, good angulation fore and aft, moved out well.
3rd Mrs C Morgan’s – Samdice in Your Honor at Rimor – very pretty fawn girl, lovely long neck into good shoulders, good topline,and tail set. Excellent rear angulation. Moved ok once settled, but did seem a little flat in herself, which let her down, as she is a very nice bitch.
Limit Bitch – 3(2 absent)
1st J H Middleton’s – Dornoir Fin – well bodied blue girl, really catches the eye, lovely head of correct proportions, correct bite. Nice neck into correct shoulders. Good depth to brisket and well tucked up, good angulation fore and aft, and solid second thigh. Moved well. A bitch that I gave considerable consideration to in the final line up.
Open Bitch – 2
1st L Newton & Miss A Newton’s – Bycosdycos Summer Time at Shlarra – Very smart fawn bitch of 2 years, lovely head and ear set which she used, correct bite and nice drop of lip, good neck into correct shoulder, good strong topline, correct angulation, tight feet. Moved very well around the ring, which is why she was another that I gave due consideration to in the final line up.
2nd Ms K Kingsley’s – Dainoak Fortuna – absolutely lovely harlequin, good strong yet feminie head, correct lay of shoulder, and firm topline, good angulation, moved well, a shame she had to meet 1st on the day, as these two could easily have swapped places.
Veteran Bitch – 3(1 absent)
1st Lady J Ingram’s – Dainmajik the Sorceress – what can I say about this 7 year fawn bitch, just lovely, everything where you would expected it to be, beautiful head, lovely neck into well laid back shoulder, full bodied in lovely proportion. Strong topline with correct tail set, correct angulation fore and aft, moved very well around the ring. So happy to award her Reserve Best Bitch, and in agreement with the Dog Judge Mr Barry Blundell, she went on to take Reserve Best in Show and Best Veteran.
2nd Miss C Lawson’s – Droolakiss Kerfuffle – another lovely veteran bitch of 6 ½ years, brindle stripes as you would expect, very well marked, heavier in stature to 1st, correct head of good proportions, correct bite. Unfortunatley she really did not want to move on the day which was a shame, as she is a lovely girl, and I am sure on a different day she would sail around the ring with ease.
SO Brindle Bitch – 1
1st Miss C Lawson’s – Droolaskiss Stripe a Pose – Stunning brindle girl, perfect stripes, the most beautiful head, with expression to die for, dark eye, and correct bite, long neck which flows easily into well laid back shoulders, good topline, correct angulation. Moved well around the ring. I looked and looked at this girl in the final line up, she was another that was given due consideration. Unfortnately, in the final stack she would not get it together which cost her.
SO Fawn Bitch – 3
1st Lady J Ingram’s – Dainmajik the Sorceress – 1st in Special Veteran
2nd Miss C Lawson’s – Droolakiss Gold N’ Glamour JW – what a smart fawn bitch, lovely head, with dark aye and correct bite, nice drop of lip which completes the picture. Lovely long neck into correct shoulder, strong topline and good spring of rib, correct angulation and tight feet. Moved well. So unlucky to come up against the veteran on the day.
3rd Mrs C Morgan’s – Samdice in Your Honor at Rimor – 3rd in PG
SO Black Bitch – 6 (3 absent)
1st P, L & J Battersby, Williams & Woodfine’s – Jildadne Nieta Del Tanque – stunning headpiece on this gleaming black bitch, dark eye, correct bite, correct ear set, and just adorable expression. Lovely neck into correct shoulder, good depth to brisket and good width across chest, strong topline and correct angulation, moved well around the ring, just standing a little bum high on the day which was a shame. A lovely bitch
2nd J H Middleton’s – Taysca Must be Cartier – 1st in PB
3rd Mr D Simpson’s – Renescent Miss Naughty – Another lovely bitch, shown in excellent condition, similar attributes to 2nd, such a difficult decision in this class.
SO Blue Bitch – 5(2 absent)
1st J H MIddelton’s – Dornoir Fin – 1st in LB
2nd Mr D Simpson’s – Renescent Love Heart – beautiful blue bitch, good make and shape, nice clean head, with correct bite, good flow of neck into well laid back shoulder, strong firm topline and correct tail set, good angulation fore and aft, moved well. Another bitch I really liked, unfortunate to come up against 1st, as I’s sure on another day they wold swap places.
SO Harlequin Bitch – 4(1 absent)
1st Miss T Pocock’s – Tamzdane Cake My Day – 1st JB and Best in Show
2nd Mrs A Ellis-Khanna, Anna & Raj Ellis-Khanna’s – Ravendane Maleficent for Harvaxe – what a beautiful harlequin bitch, one I have admired for some time, everything in the right place, beautiful head, good drop of lip, lovely arch to neck and good shoulders. Correct topline, and good angulation, unfortunately something spooked her and I was unable to go over her on the day, however with what I did see, and the way she moved so beautifully around the ring, she was still placed.
3rd Miss C Mahon & Mr D Chapman’s – Ravendane Bewitched by Auldmoor – lovely harlequin bitch, well marked, again everything in proportion, not as positive on the move as 1st and 2nd.
