B'ham Critique

By judge Albert Wight:

OD (5) Only 5 but all Champions and each in impeccable condition.
1 & Res CC Cain's Ch Kutani Lightning Strike. Almost the complete package, the right size and substance, well sprung ribs carry well back, his reach of neck and tail set and carriage add to a compelling outline then dress it all in wonderful jacket and you have an eye-catcher. His head is a delight, oozes Apso quality and charm, so well pigmented, correct mouth and never set a foot wrong either in stance or on the move. More than happy to give him runner up spot to his close relative.

LB (12,1)
1 Cain's Tantra's Plenty O Toole Isa Kutani, what a flashy little number this black and white is. Charms in spades, beautifully headed, really well bodied, fabulous coat and presentation and moved around the ring as though she owned it. Her head is so good, correct bite, super eyes and skull fairly lean. Could end up titled.

(Of course Deita is now already a champion but not at the time the entries closed so not shown in catalogue).
Super write ups, very very proud.

LD (10)
1 & CC Lock's Littondale Vallentino. I see is a son of Ch. Chethang Nikodemus, so he is half brother to the OD winner which won the RCC. This was a very strong class, even in quality and a joy to behold. I simply loved the head quality of this dog. His mouth and bite are spot on, the muzzle so correct, the back skull lean and slightly receding, the ears frame the face with feathering and his expression is stunning. Blessed with a good neck, really well ribbed, strongly boned legs, level backed, beautifully set and carried well furnished tail and he was the soundest moving male of the day. This was his day, he looked every inch a Champion and I was very happy to give him his first CC.

Gino is by Ch Chethang Nikodemus (a Ch Kutani Rogue Trader son)
out of Kutani Shabbie Chic.
We had a great 'Kutani family' day.  Thank you to Mr Albert Wight for appreciating all our dogs so much, and huge CONGRATULATIONS to my friends Jill & Dave Lock on their first homebred CC.
