SWKA Champ Show 2016
Judge Mrs Norma Inglis - OB (5,1) Small class but full of talent. It was a compliment to judge them but a cheerless task to rank them. 1 Ch Shelkovy Nos Unique Land Swout Wolf at Angelrock, first rate wolf/s who scores highly in the required elements. Petite with short couplings & good ribs. So sweet in expression with dark eyes & good balance of skull to muzzle with finely finished foreface. She strides out with purpose with head held proudly, level topline & attractive tail carriage. Ideal show personality, she demanded attention & got it. Very glamorous & she was shown in good coat. Her turn out was admirable & is a lesson in presentation. Good things come in small packages & she captures that well. So willing to please & hangs on her owner’s every word. Adorable personality. With what she has to offer she is hard to ignore, could not resist her for the CC & a worthy BOB, toy group finalist

WELKS Champ show 2017
Breed specialist judge Mrs A Cawthera-Purdy OB (7) Two beautiful bitches, both looking their best, headed this class. It took me a while and I was splitting hairs (and some) again. The most difficult decision in this entry. 1 James, D'arcy & Duffield's Ch Shelkovy Nos Unique Land Swout Wolf At Angelrock (Imp Rus) JW. This well known W/S was in full bloom, beautifully presented and handled. She carries an excellent double coat with good textured plentiful guard hair and carries a full plume. Her head proportions are correct and give a lovely expression, in particular her eyes are beautifully shaped and correctly sized. Correct dentition. A short high set neck gives her a good outline both in stance and on the move. She is well ribbed but I would prefer just slightly more taper in the depth which would improve further her front action which, though perfectly straight is a tad wide when coming towards you. Soundly constructed positive rear. Beautiful feet. CC.
