DARLINGTON CH SHOW, 12th September 2008

CANAAN DOGS

This really is a delightful breed to judge with a definite type coming through due to clever breeders.

JD/B 1 Minto's Anacan Sheeza Gem, just days out of puppy this youngster was very smart, appealing expression, well set ears & good eye shape & colour, pleasing body, level topline, moved out well. As with many here, not in full coat but well deserved RBB.

OD 1 McLeod's Anacan Call Me Ishmael at Dunline, mature 8 year old, well balanced throughout, excellent head proportions, good arch to neck, straight front, well muscled front & rear, in good coat, held topline on the move & went round the ring with a positive gait. BOB, BVIS & VG3; 2 Hughes' Anacan Future Legend, good type, well proportioned head, firm body & moved out well.

OB 1 Powley's Anacan Maid for Glory at Danehaven, very attractive bitch who unfortunately had left her jacket at home. Feminine expression, well placed ears, good eyes, excellent front & overall balance, well muscled quarters, moved with an easy gait. Pushed hard for BOB. BB; 2 Powley's Anacan Sheer Elegance, excellent outline & conformation, good head. Would prefer a darker eye to complete the picture. Moved steadily.
