1st Wilkinson’s Danmoso Winnertakesitall 6d M 29/7/2009
Lovely Red Smoke boy. Cobby body standing square on chunky short legs.Large round head with deep firm chin.Ears medium & well placed on nice top of head.Ash white furnishings.His eyes were round & already excellent copper colour.Well-defined red mask to face extending well back over ears.Full ash white ruff. Pink lips & nose leather with good sized nostrils.Scissor bite.
Colour on body & tail was rich red, deepest colour across shoulders.Undercoat was white but some diffusion evident due to coat starting to change.White tummy.Very feint tabby barring on front legs.Pink paw pads.Excellent type Smoke beautifully presented. A little nervous today but sweet temperament.
1st Hamilton’s Aureate Tutti Frutti 6e F 7/8/2009
Six month old Tortie smoke girl of good weight & size.Her body was still quite rangy possibly due to her age.Head was bumpy,ears medium and open with nice white furnishings.Mostly black nose - tiny amount of pink pigmentation also present.Eyes round with colour still pale.Level bite,top teeth slightly concave.
Coat diffused but showing black & red patches & white undercoat.Clearer contrast on mask & shoulders.Tummy was white but needed more attention to grooming. Short white frill.Sweet nature.
2nd Merchant’s Soopurrkits Blondie 51f F 28/6/2009
Cobby baby,very nice weight & size for her age. Sturdy short legs.well balanced round head.Neat ears with good width between them. They were however cream instead of white for a Cameo.She was also showing a full Cream mask,incorrect for a Cameo. Her eyes were round & good copper larger colour,although would have preferred them to be larger in size.Bite was undershot with concave top incisors.
This girl is registered as a Cream Shaded Cameo but her coat was showing 40 white/60 cream far too much tipping for a Cameo.There was also too much colour on her legs & tail.Nevertheless, the cream was excellent & the undercoat good clear white.Short full tail & ruff.Pink paw pads,eye rims & lips.Well groomed & very sweet baby.
I placed this girl 2nd as I query if she a Smoke rather than a Cameo.Difficult at her age as coats can change so much,but today resembled Smoke in shading.
1st Merchant’s Soopurrkits Alpha Romeo 53 M 20/6/2009
Well-grown, cobby Black Pewter boy,carried on solid short legs.Almost an adult & already looking quite mature.Smooth round head,full cheeks & good top of head. His ears were medium sized &well placed,nicely tufted in white.Broad brick nose leather with black outline:lips & eye liner also black.Firm chin,bite marginally undershot with concave top incisors.Round copper eyes.Light shading on face.
Full coat that flowed nicely.Clear white undercoat with excellent black shading giving the correct Pewter mantle which gives this lovely breed its attractive appearance.A full white frill framed his face. Tummy pure white.Black shading to legs & his well-covered short tail. Black paw pads to his large feet.Well groomed.
A gorgeous Pewter who showed himself off well. Very confident & easy to handle.Loved him!
