Group 3

Following on from a super weekend in Scotland where Joker won the CC under all rounder Keith Nathan, he then went on to win CC, BIS at the Lhasa Club of Scotland championship show under breed specialist Madaleine Lewis.

The following weekend saw us a bit nearer to home at City of Birmingham championship show, where Joker not only took CC and BOB but then went on to an amazing Group 3.

At the same show his two kids Kutani Shockwave (now in partnership with Vicky Clutterbuck and myself) and Kutani Material Girl (now owned by Vicky and her Mum) made their show debut, and what a debut.  Jack 2nd in MPD and Ava 1st in MPB and Best Bitch Puppy in Breed.

We wish them all the luck in the world, but don't think they really need it!

Kelso Critique

Here are the wonderful critiques for Joker for Blackpool and Kelso
Thanks go to both judges, David Mathias and Jackie Kitchener for their super report on this very special dog

Blackpool: Cain's Sandauri Showstopper for Kutani (Imp Rus). well, well, well! At 18 months what a prospect when older. Liked his head and expression, good fallaway to skull, neck into topline firm, as was loin. Correct depth of body, tailset and rear excel. On the move I loved his carriage and size, not overdone. CC and BOB

Kelso: Cain's Sandauri Showstopper For Kutani (Imp Rus).   Top class dog, caught my eye on the first go round with his typical gait and wonderful showmanship, stacked up presents the ideal balanced outline and on the table does not disappoint in the detail.  Is a lovely size and has quality in bucketloads, a masculine head of good proportions, fall away and skull; melting dark eyes, good width  to his jaw and a superb mouth, not surprising then that his expression is so typical.  Lovely front assembly with good return in upper arm and straight forelegs which place his elbows neatly alongside his ribcage, so many fail here.  Beautifully bodied with a nicely arched neck, muscular strong loin and  perfect tail and hindquarters.   Shown in first class coat , not at all surprised to see him feature in top Group placings. CC, BOB & Group 2

The Crowning of a Joker

I am so proud to announce that Sandauri ShowStopper for Kutani has now won his 3rd CC and can now claim his Crown and Title Champion

The boy is not quite 18 months old and has won his CCs from Junior and Yearling

If this was not enough, at Birmingham National he went onto BOB and eventually Group 4
Not bad for a youngster.
