Judge Mr Bill Walkey (Canada)
 
 
Baby Puppy Dog
 
1st: Kugel Possum Bourne - Owner: C Lichtwark
(CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee x NZ CH Oldworld ShadyLadyElle (Imp. Aust.))

03. A very nice young promising dog of this age.  A good square body, nice head and width of muzzle, nice solid substance.  Hocks in a little bit at the moment but presume that's because of his age and he'll get rid of that later, but a very nice young promising dog.

 
Minor Puppy Dog
 
1st: Nascade Supreme - Owner: Q & T Robinson & H McCulloch
(CH Kugel R M Williams x CH Nascade Maiden Image)

04. Good head, muzzle a little long at this age, but this will take effect when the head grows in to it.   High in the rear end once again due to age. Feet could be tighter. When he moves away he is close in at hocks.

 
2nd: Ablamor Owens Of Aran - Owner: P & L Janssen
(NZ CH Kangala Willy Wonka (Imp. Aust.) x NZ. CH Kangala Erin (Imp. Aust.))

05. Muzzle’s a little too short, nice cubed head though, nice square body. Doesn't move very well.  Better feet than no. 4.

 
Puppy Dog
 
1st: Bullestate Bullzeye - Owner: P & L Janssen
(CH Rangatira Defender x CH Brookpark Temptation)

06. Good head, typical of the breed.  Nice wide flat muzzle; could be a little wider but that will come with age.  Nice neck, good shoulder, front feet a little east west. Bit long in the loin, little high in the rear. Moves away very nicely - has good bullmastiff drive.  Will be a nice dog when he grows up.

 
2nd: Wethaby Alright Governor - Owner: Tucker
(Opalguard Dignifido (Imp. Aust.) x CH Blazon Miss Behavin)

07. Good head but the muzzle lacks a lot.  It's very narrow, triangular shaped which really doesn't give benefit to the head of the dog.  Straight in front shoulders, straight in the rear, but the dog itself is square. This dog also moves away very close at the rear.

 
Junior Dog
 
1st: Opalguard Dignifido (Imp. Aust.) - Owner: D Goble
(Aust. CH Bournevalley Buffalo Bill (Imp. UK) x Aust. CH Opalguard Czarina (Aust.))
08. Very good example of breed type.  Good solid cubed head, good muzzle; would prefer a little more mask.  Good dark eyes - he is correct size, good shoulder.  Front feet a little east west. Good depth of brisket, nice square dog. Sufficient angulation of the rear; would prefer a little longer tail but the dog itself is a square dog, well-moving.
 
2nd: Storeyline Challenge - Owner: L Storey
(CH Oakcroft Good Omen x Storeyline Hot Honey)
09. Good example of breed type.  Fairly substantial - good substance, good bone.  Too much wrinkle in the muzzle.  Good clear red ears, nice angle of shoulder.  East West in the front, little long in the loin.  Moves away very close in, little short on the tail.
 
Intermediate Dog
 
1st: CH Kugel R M Williams - Owner: C Lichtwark
(CH Kugel Made In The USA x NZ CH Centaur Banksia Queen (Imp. Aust.))
11. Very good example of breed type, nice muzzle, wide nostrils, good head. Good angle in the front shoulder.  Feet a little east west again. Topline a little up at the rear, little long in the loin. Good angulation moves away true in very, very well, has good suspension.  Too DC in the back end.
 
2nd: CH Brookpark Merlin - Owner: R Dalglish
(CH Brookpark Sergeant Solo x CH Castlecliff Matriarch)

14. Good example of breed type, good head, lesser bite, all undershot. Good front, good shoulder.  A little long in the loin.  Moves very nicely, though not quite as nice as dog no. 11.

 
3rd: Kugel Jessie James - Owner: T & B Lamb
(CH Kugel Made In The USA x NZ CH Centaur Banksia Queen (Imp. Aust.))
12. Good example of breed type, nice and square. Lacks substance for his age. Good head, good muzzle, nice eyes, good size of ear.  Moves away substantially well. A little short in the tail, a little bully.
 
4th: Zero Of Blacksmear - Owner: D MacKessack
(Storeyline Thunda Bolt x Blacksmear Looking Good)

13. Straight in shoulder, square dog, straight in stifle.  Lacks pigmentation in the nails.  Muzzle is abbreviated, triangular muzzle, light eyes.

 
NZ Bred Dog
 
1st: CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee - Owner: J Neilson
(Am., Can. & Intl CH Willowwoods Barb'eric Mufasa CROM (USA) x Am., Can., Intl. CH Cross's Splash Of Brandy (Imp. USA))

15. Good solid breed type, good bone and substance. Correct head and muzzle, ears a little large and tips rounded. Correct shoulder with good prosternum and brisket. Little long in the flank and slightly high in the rear but good second thigh development. Moves well from side, a little close going away, better coming. Feet a little loose, front feet turning out a little. Nice dog. Gives impression that he owns what he stands on.

 
**Unfortunately the tape was damaged and the rest of the NZ Bred dog critiques were lost.**
 
2nd: CH Storeyline He's All Bear - Owner: L Storey
(CH Oakcroft Good Omen x CH Eyelish Of Bullmanor)
 
3rd: Brigantia Big William - Owner: A & R McDonald
(NZ CH Centaur Bara Of The Bush (Imp. Aust.) x NZ CH Karabul Claire Dinkum (Imp. Aust.))
 
Open Dog
 
1st: Aust. & NZ CH Copperfield Capt Taunton Of Graecia (Imp. UK) - Owner: S & C Clarke
(Eng. CH Pryderi Burrunji At Chalfs (Eng.) x Its So Easy Of Copperfield (Eng.))

21. Good example of breed type. Excellent head, ear size, good muzzle, wide flared nostrils, Eyes = correct type of eyes, not too much flew, could do with a little bit more angulation in the shoulder, but otherwise not too bad.  Good front feet, nice level topline, good square dog, neccessary angulation in the rear.  Good pasterns, nice high set on his tail.

 
2nd: CH Kugel Made In The USA - Owner: C Lichtwark
(Am., Can. & Intl CH Willowwoods Barb'eric Mufasa CROM (USA) x Am., Can., Intl. CH Cross's Splash Of Brandy (Imp. USA))

20. A good breed type, excellent head; muzzle is a little pinched under the eyes which gives a triangular formation of the muzzle at the front.  Good open nostrils.  Excellent lay of shoulder, feet not too good.  Little long in the loin, little heavy, good angulation in the rear, moves pretty well, good suspension but not as good as the previous dog no 21.

 
3rd: CH Brookpark Playboy - Owner: R Dalglish
(Spruceberg Captain Nemo (Imp. Aust.) x Rangatira Misha)
 22. A game little dog, good breed type good head, eyes a little large and round.    Doesn't move too well.  Could do with more substance and maturity in his body.  His tail is a little short and lacking a little development in his second thigh.
 
Challenge Dog: CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee
 
Reserve Challenge: Storeyline He's All Bear
 
 
Baby Puppy Bitch
 
1st: Kugel Top Option - Owner: A & R McDonald
(CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee x NZ CH Oldworld ShadyLadyElle (Imp. Aust.))
27. Excellent example of breed type, good head.  Lovely wide depth of muzzle; wide all the way to the head, will make a beautiful dog when she grows up.  Good shoulder, lots of substance.  Very good feet.  Nice and square, correct length of tail, good angulation of the rear.  Very nice dog indeed.
 
2nd: Castlecliff Mata Hari - Owner: T Locke
(Rangatira Castle King x Castlecliff Joan Of Ark)
25. Good young brindle.  Short as far as maturity as brindles often do. Good head, good muzzle. Moves nicely, nice feet, very good feet.  Almost square, little short in tail but good angulation at rear.
 
3rd: Bullestate Moon Shadoo - Owner: S Timmo
(CH Rangatira Defender x Rangatira Black Lace)

24. Good head but muzzle a little triangular and flat in the front, little high in the rear, little straight in the shoulder.  Moves pretty well.

 
3rd: Kugel To The Max - Owner: C Lichtwark
(CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee x NZ CH Oldworld ShadyLadyElle (Imp. Aust.))

25. Has a lot of growing to do.  The head and muzzle are arguing with each other and her front’s a little straight but good feet, good pasterns, nice and square.  Good angulation at the rear.  Won't move properly just yet.

 
Minor Puppy Bitch
 
1st: Ablamor Fleur-De-Lis - Owner: P & L Janssen
(NZ CH Kangala Willy Wonka (Imp. Aust.) x NZ. CH Kangala Erin (Imp. Aust.))
30. Excellent example of a little female bullmastiff.  Good head, good muzzle, nice bite, ears correct size.  Beautiful angulation of the front shoulder.  Nice and square, good substance for this age. Tail correct, nice angulation of the rear.
 
2nd: Nascade Serenity - Owner: H McCulloch
(CH Kugel R M Wiliams x CH Nascade Maiden Image)
28. The head and the muzzle are both good but not in proportion to each other. The neck; very nice neck on this dog, very nice shoulder, feet aren't so good as the previous dog no. 30.  Little long in the loin, little high in the rear.  Good length of tail, good angulation.
 
3rd: Ablamor Florisdelfa - Owner: T & B Lamb & E Ravji
(NZ CH Kangala Willy Wonka (Imp. Aust.) x NZ. CH Kangala Erin (Imp. Aust.))

29. Needs a lot of growing up yet.  Muzzle is quite short in proportion to the head, which is a good head, abbreviated mask.  The neck is a little straight.  Good shoulder, but needs a lot more substance and bone.  Tail's a little short.  Moves rather sloppy from the rear.

 
Puppy Bitch
 
1st: Wethaby Dust To Diamonds - Owner: D Goble
(Opalguard Dignifido (Imp. Aust.) x CH Blazon Miss Behavin)
35. This is a very immature example of breed type with quite a lot to improve on.  Its head is a little narrow, especially the muzzle.  Good dark eyes, a little large but head out of proportion at this age.  Shoulder cramped at angle.  Bit long in the body, little high in the rear. Straight in the rear and quite underdeveloped in the second thigh.  Good feet all round.
 
2nd: Bullestate Spook's Little Boo - Owner: P & L Janssen
(CH Rangatira Defender x CH Bullestate Rise N' Shine)
34. Excellent head and muzzle, beautiful big thick teeth, good neck, nice shoulder on it and good feet, but very short in the body and very straight in the rear.  Dog may be square but needs more angulation which interferes with movement hence the second placing from no. 35.
 
Junior Bitch
 
1st: Kugel Brave Nancy Wake - Owner: C Lichtwark
(Bulwaren TheBoy FromOz (Imp. Aust.) x Kugel Barberic Dallas)
38. Good breed type.  Good head, nice muzzle - good width of muzzle all the way under the eyes, nice dark eyes.  Good neck, good shoulders.  Feet a little east west but not too bad.  Dog could be a little shorter in loin, excellent back feet and angulation.  Good length of tail, very nice mover.
 
2nd: CH Storeyline Witches Brew - Owner: L Storey
(CH Oakcroft Good Omen x Storeyline Hot Honey)

37. Very nice breed type.  Good head but muzzle is a little pointed.  Good flare of nostrils, but needs more filling under the eyes.  Because of the lack of fill in there is too much wrinkle.  Good head, good shoulders, nice topline, moves very nicely, but not as good as 38.

 
Intermediate Bitch
 
1st: Stone Maiden Of Glamis - Owner: J Manga
(Kenston Atila Sabastian x Rangatira Terina)
41. Nice example of breed type in a bitch. Nice muzzle, good square muzzle, nice flared nostrils, a little abbreviated in mask, pigmentation missing in the nails both front and back.  Nice feet, good angle of shoulder.  Good topline, level topline, good angulation and development in the back rear.
 
2nd: CH Blackmask Amanda - Owner: C Clarke
(CH Blackmask Clancy x NZ CH Grasslock Stella Polaris AI (Imp. Aust.))
38. Good head but muzzle isn't quite up to par.  Good flared nostrils, but it needs a little fill in under the eyes, little too much wrinkle.  Good neck and angle of shoulder.  A little high at the rear.  Rear angulations not too bad, tail is about right.
 
3rd: Hot One Of Blacksmear - Owner: Hartwell
(Storeyline Thunda Bolt x Blacksmear Looking Good)
43. Good head but muzzle is far too short and pointed.  Needs filling under the mask - is a triangular muzzle.  Moves pretty well.  Good pigmentation in front nails; good topline.
 
4th: Blazon Dragonstorm - Owner: S Mearns & J Neilson
(CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee x NZ CH Murbisa Kiri (Imp. UK))

42. A nice brindle but a little immature in both substance and bone.  Good head, muzzle is a little shallow, good nostril, needs a little breadth to the muzzle. Feet at the front need improvement and needs more brisket and substance.

 
5th: CH Bullestate Kruse Control - Owner: T & B Lamb
(CH Rangatira Defender x Rangatira Nala)
44. Good nice cubed head but muzzle is far, far too short and far too abbreviated giving a tremendous amount of wrinkle in the muzzle and lots of dewlap.  Ear set is very low.  Front feet are OK but pigmentation missing.  Good neck and nice square dog.  Little straight in the rear, little short in the tail.
 
6th: Rangatira Red Beauty - Owner: V Mills
(CH Brookpark Playboy x Kingma Lacey)

45. Nice red dog, good eyes, narrow in the head, narrow in the muzzle - too much flew.  Angle of shoulder is not too bad.  Tends to crab when moving.  Good pigmentation, good topline, little straight in the rear but nice feet all round.

 
NZ Bred Bitch
 
1st: CH Nascade Maiden Image - Owner: H McCulloch
(Orarabull Jarrah (Imp. Aust.) x CH Oakcroft Natural Charm)
47. Nice well developed female with good substance, good bone, nice neck, nice square dog. Little straight in the rear end here, good feet lacking pigmentation on nails, moves very nicely though. Nice wide head, muzzle needs a little filling in under the eyes but otherwise a good type of muzzle - good breed type
 
Open Bitch
 
1st: CH Blazon Miss Behavin - Owner: D Goble
(CH Kugel Barberic Robt E Lee x CH Blazon Cauzin Chaos)
48. Nice dog with good substance, good breed type. Nice cubic head, ears not too bad, little large.  Muzzle is in correct proportion, nice and square - good width all the way to the head.  Good dark eye.  Lacks a little pigmentation in the nails but square dog otherwise.  Developed in the rear end, moves nicely.
 
2nd: NZ CH Grasslock Stella Polaris AI (Imp. Aust.) - Owner: C Clarke
(Eng. CH Dixson Of The Green (Eng.) x Aust. CH Grasslock Jaz Bullah (Aust.))
46. Really nice girl; nice breed type.  It's a shame she's out of condition because of the puppies. The undercarriage is nothing to do with it but there is obvious moulting and therefore gives the body poor appearance.  A nice shoulder though, nice front end.  Head is a good size. Muzzle tends to be a little narrow although goes all the way back A little more flew than I like to see. Muzzle a little short but a well shaped dog. Nice rear end, nice back feet.
 
3rd: NZ CH Oldworld ShadyLadyElle (Imp. Aust.) - Owner: C Lichtwark
(Aust. CH Gameguard Bruelle (Aust.) x Aust. CH Oldworld Shady Ladyhawke (Aust.))
38. Good, well developed dog.  I would say reasonable breed type.  Front is a little straight, good cubic head but muzzle is a little short and a little pointed and also the mask is a abbreviated giving a lot of shortness to the nose and wrinkle to the head.  Good topline, tail is a little short, to me a little bully in appearance.  Second thigh is nicely developed, good feet all round but lacks pigmentation.

The general overall quality was better than I had been told by hearsay.  Excellent craniums, muzzles generally good - broad shape, not pointed or triangular - a little abbreviated in some cases leaving need for fill-in under eyes, resulting in too much wrinkle. Pleased to see good neck lengths, and good substance.

General top lines good, some high rears, but no swaybacks. Fronts and brisket good; as was side movement. Coming and going some dogs a little close. Disappointed with feet. Many splayed, east-west, and quite a few with twisted toes - mainly front - couldn't chase the poacher! Several dogs with rounds eyes, tail carriages were good, some tails a little short. All round good exhibition of dogs.

Bill Walkey.
