**Ollie takes Dog CC at the prestigious Richmond Championship Dog Show Saturday 7th September 2013**

Posted on Sunday, October 20th, 2013

The prestigious Richmond Championship Dog Show is a weekend long event held at Loseley Park in Guildford UK which ran from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September.  Saturday was the working breed and we travelled over with Ollie, Niamh and Chloe.  Breed judge for the Saints was breed specialist Mr Tan Negracha of the renowned Chandlimore Saint Bernard Kennel in the UK.  It was a very proud moment when our 23 month old home bred boy “Ollie” Bulabos Sea The Stars Ir Jnr Ch, CJW’13 took 1st in Limit Dog and went on to take the Dog CC and Reserve Best of Breed.  Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, “Chloe” Bulabos Just A Flirt took 1st place in puppy class and went on to take Best Puppy In Breed.  The lovely “Niamh” Ir Ch Islamorada Ruby Tuesday AN CH’12, CJW’12, CW’12, CW’13 was 1st in Open Bitch Class.

The following is the critique given by Mr Nagrecha for Ollie, Chloe & Niamh.

ST BERNARDS RICHMOND 2013

 

LIMIT DOG (6,2)
1)bulabos sea the stars — a new one to me and very pleasing to go over, my notes say moderate through and through . still young but maturing well , his head is adequate and free of exaguration , clean eyes , skull to muzzle ratios are good without being extreme , good reachy neck into good shoulders , excellent length to leg and stands so true in front , hard topline with good ribbing , could be better let down behind to finish the picture . handler gets the best out of him on the move, this young dog has an easy side gait and holds his shape at all times , he is true coming towards but still needs to fill a little more in front , upstanding male who deserved the CC today , lost to the bitch on maturity and finish in body for BOB .

 

PUPPY BITCH (3,0)
1)bulabos just a flirt — exiting prospect , 10 months and growing well, she has a lovely head and stands so proud using her neck to advantage, excellent length to leg and super bone on this young smooth , well bodied and proportioned, even though she is a touch soft in her topline being so young her movement is impressive, clean coming and going and a free and easy side gait . Will watch her progress with interest BPIB

 

OPEN BITCH (3,1)
1) Ir ch . Islamorada ruby Tuesday – the soundest bitch in this entry, really makes you smile watching her use the ring with her effortless easy action. On hands on she is beautifully made, excellent eye and good bite. Txt book front and balanced outlook with quarters to match. Totally accurate coming and going and an explosive side gait eating the ring up as she powered round the ring. Even though I loved her on the move she had to give way to the typier bitches today who scored on head and size. She was out of coat too which did not help. Lovely bitch who could easily topped the lot on a different day
