Class 2 Minor Puppy: - No entries

Class 3 (1 entry) Puppy Dog: - Absent

Class 4 (3 entries) Junior Dog

1st Mr and Mrs R Nicolson Lochindorb Chief of the Clan
Good class with very little between the first two.
Compact, short coupled l/w dog. Good firm top line, excels in rear movement. Front a bit wide to my liking but overall the looks of a future champion. Eyes need to darken but a decent head. (Best Junior)
2nd Mrs B Ganarin Berkenbar Makenzee
3rd Mr and Mrs Linton Rosannoch Ansuz

Class 5 (2 entries, 1 absent) Special Yearling:

1st Miss J Wright Anacapa Springtide
Nice dark eyes, slightly prominent occiput. Hackneys slightly in front. Well presented.

Class 6 (1 entry) Novice Dog

1st Mr and Mrs Nicolson Lochindorb Clansman
Eyes dark enough, reasonable head, good depth and good bone. Moved ok but rear movement lacks drive. Overall a nice enough specimen.

Class 7 (4 entries, 1 absent) Graduate Dog

1st Mrs H Merry Anacapa Pipers Song for Tingvelle
Compact, short coupled dog with a bit of quality. Eyes need to darken, moved well with drive but slightly narrow in front. Carries his top line well. RBD.

Class 10 (3 entries, 2 absent) Open Dog

1st Mrs E Rose Rosannoch Eihwaz JW
Lovely headed dog with correct eye colour and shape. Put down in first class condition. Slightly long coupled for my taste but has all the attributes to be made up. Had no hesitation in making him Best Dog.

Class 13 (1 entry, absent) Puppy Bitch 

Class 14 (4 entries, 2 absent) Junior Bitch

1st Mrs B Ganarin Berkenbar Mystique
Two attractive junior bitches with little to choose between. Preferred the head of the 2nd but she lacked the bone of the 1st. This bitch moved better but lacks animation; think this may be due to lack of confidence. Nice dark eyes, overall a nice class.
2nd Ms K and Miss B Holt Trimere Tranqueliser at Bethryn

Class 15 (1 entry) Special Yearling Bitch

1st Mrs R Rawding and Mrs M Bolton- Lochhart Gleadsbury Petite Etoile
