The following are the class placements, along with the judge's critiques.
Veteran Dog/Bitch (Entries: 3, Absent: 0)
1st: Richard & Ellen Minto's Anacan Ziggy. Black and white with tan trim dog. In very good condition. A correct wedge-shaped head with oblique, almond eyes and correct ears in set and shape. Balanced angulation front and rear, he moved with drive and a level topline.
2nd: E M Minto's Anacan Sheindela. Sand bitch. A typical “cautious disposition”. Now has a dipped topline on standing, but still sound with drive on the move. Tail carried over back on move, has correct high set, a nice double coat.
3rd: Patrick & Barbara Gold's Anacan Athtar at Amicitia.
Puppy Dog/Bitch (Entries: 0)
Junior Dog/Bitch (Entries: 0)
Beginners Dog/Bitch (Entries: 1, Absent: 0)
1st: Kim Morton's Anacan Akilah. White with sand patches, bitch. Nicely constructed, wedge-shaped feminine head. Smooth driving movement with good balance front and rear angulation. Slightly long in ribs, but forgiven as a bitch.
Breeders Dog/Bitch (Entries: 1, Absent: 0)
1st: E M Minto's Anacan Glory Bea. White with sand patches, bitch. 18 months old, with a nice head and large wide-set ears. Good front and rear angulation, a cube loin and correct length of ribs, nice coat and sound on move. As she matures she should “grow into” her ears to make an impressive mature bitch.
Post Graduate Dog (Entries: 1, Absent: 0)
1st: Julie Nicholl's Anacan Future Legend. With with tan patches. A very smart 18 month dog, shown well. Excellent wedge shaped head, correct size with nice expression. Effortless on the move, well muscled and in good condition. Pushed hard for BIS, but not quite mature yet. One to watch I am sure. RBD, RBIS.
Limit Dog (Entries: 3, Absent: 1)
1st: Gold's Anacan Athtar at Amicitia. White with sand patches. A nice wedge shaped head, with length of muzzle to stop equal to length of stop to occiput. Well laid back shoulders, but very weak behind in movement. No rear drive or much extension of hind legs.
2nd: Christine Powley's Sheleg Harishon at Danehaven. White and sand dog. Short in muzzle and straight, but balanced angulation front and rear, thus not as economical on energy in the trot. He is in super condition and well shown.
Open Dog (Entries: 1, Absent: 0)
1st: R & E M Minto's Anacan Masterpiece. White and sand. An excellent mature male head with correct ratio of muzzle to head. Balanced front and rear, powerful and smooth in movement. Good double coat, well shown. BD, B. Vet, BIS.
Post Graduate Bitch (Entries: 5, Absent: 0)
1st: Gold's Anacan Shoshannah For Amicitia. Cream. Wedge-shaped head, correct ear and eye set, obviously feminine. Nicely arched neck set, well laid back shoulders. Well muscled, sound and smooth with level topline on the move. BB, BOS.
2nd: Morton's Anacan Akilah. Is litter sister to 1. Weaker topline as longer in loin than 1, but moves with drive. Is not as fit and muscled as 1, which compromised her movement. Another super correct but feminine head. RBB.
3rd: Powley's Anacan Maid For Glory.
Limit Bitch (Entries: 4, Absent: 0)
1st: Gold's Anacan Shoshannah For Amicitia.
2nd: Morton's Anacan Akilah.
3rd: Powley & Minto's Anacan Sheer Elegance.
Open Bitch (Entries: 3, Absent: 0)
1st: E M Minto's Anacan Simply Irresistible. White with red patches. A fully mature bitch with correct but feminine head. Balanced angulation, well laid back shoulders, arched neck and well sprung ribs. Light, but with drive, on the move.
2nd: David & Julia Close's Anacan Touch of Class At Arikara. Tan. A nicely proportioned outline on standing, correct head, but moved very close behind today with no drive.
3rd: E M Minto's Anacan Whole Lotta Class.
Progeny 1st: Powley's Sheleg Harishon at Danehaven. All progeny moved well with correct heads and coats. RBIS, BB, RBB were sired by this dog ( BB & RBB out of first in Open Bitch).
2nd: E M Minto's Anacan Whole Lotta Class. Another consistent group of offsring with nice heads, but a tendency to be less angulated in hind.
3rd: R & E M Minto's Anacan Ziggy.
