.: Critiques & Breed notes

"...There have been a few wins at open shows. Newcomers to showing Bolognese, but doing very well with their little girl, are Heather & Bill Blakeway with Shiarita Springtime Dream at Bellablake who recently went BPIS & RBIS at Merseyside Toy Dog. Heather was thrilled & is getting very keen on showing, although Bill will be handling at their next show"

JB 1st Blakeway’s Shiarita Springtime Dream at Bellablake, one of the best balanced, correct shape, compact & square, good wide skull, dark round eyes. Although would prefer her slightly shorter in muzzle. Strong topline with well sprung ribs, sound front & rear, coat in very good order, I think her handler needs a little more confidence. Once she settles down on the move I’m sure she will be considered for top honours.

PGB 2nd Shiarita Springtime Dream at Bellablake, very relaxed young female who took it all in her stride. Slightly more substantial than some but of sound structure. Lovely thick coat of correct type but texture could be a little improved. Pigment very good, will do well as matures.

OD 1st Blakeway's Bellablakes Marczipan Star. This 18 month old dog was a lovely example of the breed. He had a lovely head, great pigment & was a very nice shape. He was full of personality & he showed very well. His movement was very good & i loved the fact that he had a better build & plenty of drive from behind & a very good coat. A worthy Best of Breed winner.

PGD (2) 1st Blakeways Bellablakes Marczipan Star. This little dog is small, white, square and had a distinctive coat, just what the standard calls for. He is lovely to go over on the table, he stands rock solid, very pleasing dark round eyes, black lips high set ears, wide flat skull with good stop. To be critical I would prefer a slightly shorter foreface. He carried his head high and proud on the move, well laid shoulders, front straight legs, well sprung ribs, strong hind quarters, level topline, good tailset and carriage. His coat was the icing on the cake, super fronding covered his body and snow white in colour. He was an excellent mover, very sound and eye catching delightful temperament. Best Dog and Best of Breed.
