LEISURE CENTRE, EXNING ROAD, NEWMARKET, SUFFOLK
- MISS V. HOURIHANE (AMSCOR)
enjoyed my day judging at the SE & EA TSS. I
must apologise for this abridged critic, unfortunately
I have been under the weather and hope that this
shortened version is better than nothing! I was
delighted with my top winners and both CC winners
were winning that precious third!
D (5-1ab) 1. Keen's Ch Deanford Quaestor
- well known fawn, in excellent form, has the correct
overall balance, well placed plume, well coated,
carrying the mane that one expects in the mature
male. Always appears to me to be on good terms with
himself and the world in general.
2. Harvey & Quest's Int Ch Sharbonne Secret
Dynasty at Chenrezi, red gold with a pleasing head,
similar balnce to winner. Good skull and muzzle,
strong short neck, first class pigment and good
dark eye. Moves nicely, just preferred winner behind.
3. Breeze & Styles' Ch Hilsar Duar-A-Pala -
fawn, gold in a stronger frame than those above.
as a good mouth, correct chin and cushioning, preferred
the skull shape of the above, strong well set neck,
good level topline, pleasing action in front.
P D (2) 1. Harvey, Quest & Jarvis'
Chenrezi Ace of Diamonds at Tibrek, forward 7 mth
red sable, very good body, pleasing level topline
and tail carriage. Very good mouth and chin, well
placed and used ears, good dark eye, grand showman
who moves neatly and is of the corrct size.
2. Rose's Caselden the Avangelist, immature 6 mths
red, another that is of the correct size and has
the correct outline and balance. Attracticely proportioned
head with a good muzzle. Pleasing topline, has a
good body and the right amount of bone, not too
heavy and not to fine!
D (4-1) 1. Simper & Scoates' Clydum
Royal Jester 9 mth red, just the right size, balance
and outline. Tidy front with the desired slight
bow on the upper arm, good length of pastern leading
to neat hare feet. Attractive face and expression,
good dark eye, correct neck and shoulder placement.
Best Puppy in Show.
2. Moran's Karma Luka - clear light gold with lovely
dark eyes and excellent nose and eyerim pigment.
In a larger mould than the winner, but has the same
overall balance, correct front, pleasing hindquarters.
Carries a lovely coat of the correct textures, hope
he has stopped growing.
3. Lemon & Hutchinson's Oldcharm In Your Eyes
- red sable cast a shade longer than the above,
and is slightly heavier throughout. Good muzzle
length and cushioning, pleasing dark eye. Well coated
and in very good condition, well ribbed and level
D (6) 1. Roake's Foxhue Zar - red/gold
correct in height to length, moves well, correct
bone. Good neck and shoulder placement, strengthening
his free forward action, level topline very well
carried and set tail, pleasing behind giving true
2. Croucher's Bruesown Getchi Gomba, like the winner
has prepared for summer in style, has a very good
balance and outline, correct bone and body. Correct
chin and muzzle, correct skull shape, not overdone
in any way, which gives the correct ear placement
and carriage. Looks the sort that will go on improving
like a fine wine.
3. Jewell's Deanford Will O'the Wisp on Moorland
- gold/fawn with a black mask, in great coat and
condition, a little over cooked in the ear fringe
department for me as I looked for the desired unexaggerated
appearance. Atractive head and expression, although
a little more chin would improved his position in
the class today.
Yearling D (3) 1. Breeze & Styles'
Hilsar Kahla T'So - dark fawn sable, one of the
few who moved as well behind as in front, at his
optimum pace he moves truely on two parallel lines.
Has a pleasing shoulder and firm hindquarters, well
2. D Will O' the Wisp on M
3. Yllastel Popped Around to Paulin - dark fawn
sable, very much ready for a long hot summer! Is
of pleasing size, made to look on the smaller side
by his lack of coat. Has attractive facial features,
a little more chin would complete the picture, good
dark 'almond' eye, well set on a small head. Good
neck, nice bone and good feet.
D (2) 1.C Ace of Diamonds for T
2. Rose's Caseldon the Carved Angel - red in a mass
of coat, has the right amount of bone and good rib
shape. Has a pleasing outline, a little more deportment
would help his balance as, relaxed, he makes himself
appear longer cast than he actually is.
Grauate D (12-2) 1. Hughes' Andor Valentino
at Sherpenie - gold of the correct size and balance.
Attractive head, good clean muzzle, of pleasing
length, cushioning and chin. Level topline, well
placed tail, good hindquarters. In full coat, without
a hint of exaggeration.
2. Pickin's Karolinca Pizzicato, red fawn sable
with a very good outline and balance, good for size,
pleasing neck and shoulder set. Correct muzzle and
chin, not quite the finish in skull as the winner.
Moves economically and true.

shape and outline, a little heavier in the skull
than the above, has a very good chin, dark eye.
Thick short neck set well on the forehand. In good
coat well carried plume and correct skirts.
Limit D (3) 1. Redfern's Philcar The
Philanderer - set in the larger mould but is balanced
throughout and has the true outline. Carries the
right amount of bone, correct feet, is in first
class coat and body. Pleasing head proportions with
the correct skull shape, which leads to the right
2. Breeze & Styles' Ambyla Kala among Hilsar
- Another very dark fawn sable of good size and
body balance. Head proportions are ok, would prefer
a stronger chin, pleasing eye shape and colour,
well placed ears. Could be a little more positive
on the move.
3. Rose's Caselden Picasso - red with attractive
white markings, very good for size and balance,
of a lighter type than the above with a true finish
of skull and correct muzzle. Not giving of his best
on the day.
D (7) 1. Croucher's Bruesown Barnaby

for all day - so well proportioned, smooth lines,
dark well shaped eyes, correct muzzle length and
cushioning, good skull shape, in balance with the
body, well set neck and shoulders, pleasing bone

assisted by firm hindquarters. Size and outline
as recommended by the standard. Res CC

a really typical outline and balance, good bone
and correct body shape. Carrying a good coat of
the correct texture. Tidy front with a good forehand,
neat effective mover.
3. Jones' Deshurland Jome similar sort to above,
good size and balance, carries a little more weight
over the shoulders, has attractive facial features
with very good pigment throughout, well set neck
and shoulders. Correct unexaggerated angulation
on the hind quarters.

on such form, has the required balance and carries
himself with pride. Correct bone, pleasing bow in
front, pastern and feet. Well placed shoulders,
level topline good quarters and correctly set and
carried tail. Strides out with certainty and truly.
3. Croucher's Bruesown Madonna's Son, red fawn with
a correctly proportioned head, first class pigment
throughout, correct eye set and shape, and an expression
that does not hide his feelings. Sound in limb,
positive in action, correct bone and bow.
B (12-1) 1. Keen's Ch Deanford Patricia
- first time I have judged this young lady, although
I have admired her from the ringside for a long
time, truly does not disappoint. Moves so well,
probably due to the fact that she is put together
correctly, outpointed her baby brother to take Best
Veteran in Show and pushed the youngsters hard in
the final challenge.
2. Redfern's Mirenka Parti Joy with Souska, 10 y
o red sable white p/c that has so much type shape
and balance. Another that could show the youngsters
how to move. Corrct size, well set neck and shoulders,
good skull shape and muzzle. In first class coat
and condition without a hint of exaggeration.
3. Short's Ch Malia Pastiche - another long standing
favourite, gold 11 y o, so similar in many ways
to the above, has the shape, balance, soundness
and clean cut lines around the head that I look
for in the true Tibetan Spaniel.
Puppy B (8-1) 1. Croucher's Bruesown
Mannequin - rich red of true type shape and size.
Has a head that says Tibetan Spaniel to me, nothing
apolgetic nor stuffy about this one. Good muzzle
length, correct cushioning, excellent pigmentation,
good eye, well set in correctly shaped skull, active,
well placed ears. Good bone, pleasing body, just
gave way on maturity in the challenge for Best Puppy
2. Hughes' Andor Roseanna - half sister to BIS and
has many similar attributes, is more mature in finish
of body than the winner, but not quite as ready
in finish of head. Has very good pigment, pleasing
muzzle and chin. Hope she does not grow on much
3. Dalrymple-Hay's Samar Serenade at Parkplace petit
gold with a black mask, in excellent coat and condition.
Correct tail set, Has a very pretty face, with pleasing
dark eye, well set in the small skull. Well placed
ears, which she uses to good effect. Hope this one
has not stopped growing as an extra half inch all
round will really bring her on.
B (16-4) 1. Lemon & Hutchinson's
Oldcharm as You Like It - Best Puppy B, mature showgirl
with a good front, please bow and tidy elbows. Good
shoulders and body, at the right stage for her age.
I liked her balance and outline and carries many
of her mother's characteristics. Has pleasing muzzle
on a well proportioned head. Positive mover.
2. Redfern Phantastic Flyer, similar red gold. Has
the same overall outline and balance, once she settles
has the ability to move truly. Good head balance,
in proportion to the body, attractive expression.
I like her size and appears to be maturing at the
right rate. Good coat of the correct texture.

a pretty face, attractive features, correct skull
shape, well placed eyes and ears, good firm neck
and shoulders. Pleasing bone and body, good for
size, balnce and moves truly
B (8) 1. O'Brien's Bridget Jones of Glishanna,
glamourous light gold with a black mask. Ideal size
with good length to height ratio. Pleasing hindquarters,
unexaggerated angulation, moves to a true line behind,
would like a little more freedom in front. Attractive
face and expression, good muzzle with correct cushion
& chin. Good eye shape and colour. In excellent
coat & condition.
2. Tapp's Velbri Vanilla, not quite the glamour
of the winner, but a very sound, honest Tibetan
Spaniel. First class pigmentation throughout, moves
well coming and going. Good for size, has the correct
balance, pleasing in bone and has neat hare feet.
3. Lafferty's Yllastel Maybe Magic, similar sort
to the second, not quite the proportion in the finish
of face, I prefer a little more chin and a shade
less cushioning. Another that covers the ground
accruately and positively, good size and shape.
Nice bone, tidy front.

pretty headed pale gold and white p/c, pleasing

length, shade over done in skull for me, pleasing
neck set. Tidy front, neat bow on the forearm.
2. Hodges' Yllastel Bold Lady, fawn gold, similar
sort to winner, lower croup than some. Tidy mover,
steady showgirl, keeps her shape standing and on
3. Rose's Caselden I believe In Angels, happy soul
with a pretty head. Needs to settle to see her at
her best. Very good coat and plume, head small in
proportion to the body, as recommended in the standard,
would like to see her after some 'gym work'.
Graduate B (13-3) 1. Riley's Baskwood
Mapham Tso, this pale gold as so many pleasing attributes,
lovely shape and size, so well balanced and moves
neatly. Very well put together with good shoulders,
level topline and firm hindquarters. Correct proportions
in skull and body, clean head with tidy muzzle.
2. Pickin's Karolinca Sweet Harmony, similar sort,
possibly a shade longer cast, I prefer only a slight

that has the balance I look for, pretty head with
tidy proportions. Very good pigment and good dark
Limit B (11-2) 1. Allman's Andor Miss
Marple at Shantess, full sister from a later litter
to my BIS, and doesn't the dam throw them out with
a similar stamp, the litter brother having already
won PDG. The more I saw this red gold, the more
I liked her. Has the attractive head with the tidy
unexaggerated proportions required, blunt muzzle,
well cushioned, very good pigment and a lovely dark
eye. Pleasing shoulders, tidy front, level topline
and a very good tailset. Moves truely and effortlessly,
2. Harvey's Chenrezi Chase the Wind - a gold that
I have a lot of time for, she is so well put together,
moves so accurately, unfortunately, like many of
the bitches at this stage, was feeling the humidity
and making her feelings known and was not showing
the sparkle needed at this stage of the game. I
like her head and expression, good muzzle and chin,
lovely dark eye and very good pigment. Always a
3. Hazlehurst's Velbri Miss Molly at Kavarnagh fawn
gold which is a more petite sort. Very pretty head,
with a lovely dark eye, well set and good shape.
Correct amount of dome, giving active well placed
ears. Firm neck leading to level topline and an

good features, dark eye, plesing stop, muzzle and
cushioning. Tidy front and moves with verve. Positive
hindquarters, giving drive behind, but not overcooked.
2. Croucher's Bruesown Nimnoo, honest red with rich
deep colour and excellent pigmentation throughout.
Preferred her neck set and shoulder placement to
the winner. Could be more demanding in her deportment
as she makes it easy to overlook her. Her shape,
outline, soundness and balance puts her well in
the running. Is of the correct size.
3. Short's Malia Remembrance larger sort, who, like
many of the larger types, is so sound. Has good
bone and body, not exactly co-operating fully with
her handler. Prefer the finish of face of the winner.

red gold, has very good carriage and outline. Correct
front and forehand, correct in bone and bow, good
pasterns and correct feet. Pleasing body, with good

very well from all angles, further evidence of how
well put together she is! Pretty face, with attractive
features, good firm neck, well set. Saw off some
very strong opposition to take CC and Res BIS
2. Lemon & Hutchinson's Ch Souska I'm Not in
Love for Oldcharm slightly longer cast than the
winner which gives a thicker set appearance, excels
in body and soundness. Charming face, with good
muzzle length and firm chin. Well placed ears, which
she uses to advantage.
3. Croucher's Bruesown Po-Li ultra sound gold fawn
with sable overtones. Lovely body, firm front, very
similar in outline and balance to the runner up,
a little short of body coat on the day, has well
placed plume and carries the correct amount of skirts
