Class 1 PUPPY DOG (3 Entries) Abs: 0
1ST: Mowatt’s Tabanyaruu Tuukka Nuuka (AI) – 6 month old baby, a lot to like. Well set tail held high when on the move. 1 erect and 1 semi-erect ear nicely placed; the softest expression and dark eyes. Correct angulation front and back which showed in his movement. Good depth of chest and spring of rib. Well off for bone. Coat wavy at the moment but plenty of time to change. Best Opposite Sex Puppy
2ND : Manley’s Skimarque Talvi Susi – Skimarque Talvi Susi – 10 month. Another lovely puppy, wolf sable with attractive markings in lovely coat of correct texture and well prepared. Muzzle shorter than skull, ears well set. Excellent bone down to correct feet. Tailset high and carried well. I felt he was carrying too much weight today that affected his movement.
3RD: Gibsone’s Elbereth Sampo
Class 2 JUNIOR DOG (6 Entries) Abs: 1
1ST: Critchlow & Sheridan’s Pavoskas Charleston – A handsome brown boy, eye colour to match his coat colour (but I would prefer slightly darker) Good stop on well-proportioned head. Neat ears. Correct spring of rib and depth of chest. Good bone down to well padded feet. High set tail carried well at all times. Profuse coat of correct texture and well prepared. Well handled
2ND: Thomas’ Elbereth Tuulenpoika – A striking marked boy of lovely breed type. Well laid back shoulder and medium length neck. Well muscled throughout, good bone and well arched feet. A soft expression enhanced by his dark eyes, well set ears. Very light on his feet, but didn’t extend out on the move or drive as well as first place.

Class 3 YEARLING DOG (4 Entries) Abs: 2
1ST: Critchlow & Sheridan’s Pavoskas Charleston
2ND: Woollard’s Infindigo Lintu Miika – A wolf sable boy of 16 months. Head of breed type with good proportions and dark eyes, masculine throughout. Well groomed. This boy was carrying too much weight which affected his movement, tended to move cow hocked.
Class 4 NOVICE DOG (3 Entries) Abs: 1
1ST: Gibsone’s Elbereth Sampo – Wolf sable puppy, up to size for 9 months of age. Such a typical head for the breed with good width of muzzle, correct stop, dark eye and good pigment so well proportioned. His ears were heavily tipped for me, but still time to improve. His movement was erratic and difficult to truly assess. High set tail held well at all times. In good coat for his age, showing a good mane.
2ND: Lee’s Kaijartuu Taikuri – no ring training at all so difficult to assess him. Would not settle on the move at all and made a dash for the nearest exit, which made his movement very erratic. His head proportions weren’t quite right for me, needed much shorter muzzle for true breed type. He had correct body length, good bone and well bodied, coat of correct texture.
Class 5 POST GRADUATE DOG (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1ST: Allison’s Oberitz Valkea Yo– Cream boy, excellent type. Correct eye shape and colour, lovely pigment. Showed excellent profile, with correct body shape, depth of chest and good length of leg, moderate neck and high set tail completes the picture, his profuse coat of the correct harsh texture. Well-muscled throughout which showed in his movement.

Class 6 LIMIT DOG (6 Entries) Abs: 1
1ST: Feldberg’s Kaijartuu Revontulet – Took him a while to settle on the move, but when he did he moved so sound and true fore and aft. Pleasing head proportions, muzzle to skull proportions, eye shape and colour all meet the standard as does his soft expression. Correct shoulders well placed, good depth of chest leading to a good tuck up and in great muscle, short loin, high set tail held well at all times. Enough bone leading to correct well arched feet. His outline was enhanced by his coat, well prepared with good mane and trousers. Really shone in the challenge, My Best Dog and Best In Show
2ND: Critchlow & Duncan’s Pavoskas Britti Bandiitti – A handsome young man of excellent breed type. Wolf sable, attractive markings, coat of correct texture, full mane and trousers. His head proportions are pleasing dark eye, neat ears and soft expression. Body slightly longer than height and so well put together with correct angles throughout, showing in his brisk straight movement.

Class 7 OPEN DOG (4 Entries) Abs: 1
1ST: Short’s Ch Glenchess Gregory – A great example of the breed, pleasing head proportions, with wide set ears, dark eye and soft expression. Body of correct construction, front and rear angulation, depth of chest, well off for bone and well-padded feet. Moved straight and true from all angles. Coat of harsh texture with mane and trousers. Just lacked drive and sparkle in the challenge. My Reserve Best Dog.
2ND: Croft & Mowatt’s Tabanyaruu Onnea Kissa (AI) – a handsome boy, typical breed outline, good length of back and high set tail. Depth of chest in proportion to length of leg. Well off for bone, oval well padded feet. Typical soft expression, dark eye and correct ear set. Moved out well
3RD: Cooper & Critchlow’s Pavoskas Aly Arttu JW ShCM
Class 8 SPECIAL VETERAN DOG (7-9 YEARS) (1 Entries) Abs: 0
1ST: Jackson’s Multi Ch Elbereth Matkamies ShCM – a quality boy of excellent breed type. Muzzle shorter than slightly rounded skull, dark attractive eyes completing his soft expression. Such a showman still at 9 years old, profile showing a good length to height ratio with good spring of rib. High set tail carried well at all times. Not in his best dress at the moment. His movement was stiff on the rear today.
Class 9 SPECIAL VINTAGE DOG (10+ YEARS) (1 Entries) Abs: 0
1ST: Cooper’s Elbereth Kippis to Pavoskas ShCM – what a character, not showing his age in his movement at all, strode out well with his handler. Typical breed type, soft expression, enough stop with dark eyes and neat ears set well. Not the biggest of boys, well-constructed with good lay back of shoulder and correct body length. Well groomed coat of harsh texture and profuse trousers and Mane. Best Opposite Sex Veteran
