By judge Albert Wight:
OD (5) Only 5 but all Champions and each in impeccable condition.
& 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.
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.
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.
