Many thanks to the Committee, Steward and the exhibitors for braving the weather and for the warm welcome I received. Although there were many absentees the dogs there were full of quality and presentation was excellent. I just loved judging this wonderful breed.

Veteran D/B 5
1st Tracz ‘s Sh Ch Meadowdale Alabama Slammer At Acregate 9 years old masculine dog with a typical quality head, super expression, strong muzzle, strong neck of good length, good feet, well sprung ribs, strong loins, correct topline, very good hindquarters including width of second thigh, Presented in good coat, moved positively showing forward swing. BVIS
2nd Glendenning’s Sh Ch Plaiglen Hustle, 7 years old. Loved this boy for size and type, Balanced throughout with good length to neck leading smoothly in to shoulders, firm topline and well-muscled quarters. Not quite the flow on the move as 1st… he needs a bigger ring to maximise his reach and drive. Best B/W

Limit Dog 2 (1)
1 Bethryn Devil Moon JW Ir Jun Ch Lots to like about this young man, lovely size, kindest of eye, well angulated fore and aft. Good reach and drive and he uses his tail to advantage on the move but he was carrying a bit too much weight which caused him to roll a bit.

Open Dog 4 (1)
1 Sh Ch Art-Waves Standing Ovation For Allenie Quality young man with plenty of breed attributes. He possesses an appealing head, strong and muscular neck leading in to well laid shoulders. Excellent topline and strong quarters, he is in great muscular condition and in good coat which is well presented. Moved freely on a lengthy effortless stride which determined my decision to award him. BD,
2 Dutch Ch Trimer Total Mayhem This young man scores in outline and balance. He carries his topline firmly, deep chested and lovely bone. Straight and strong in front and he has well-muscled quarters. Flowed around the ring showing good reach and drive RBD,
3 Melverly Desert Strike Over Acregate JW ShCM

Minor Puppy Bitch 2 (1)
1 Wandsfell Night Music classy young lady with loads of promise, so soundly built on correct lines. I loved her head; she has the ‘keen, intelligent’ look in her eye and the correct head planes. Her body proportions are ideal, giving the outline that I look for. On the move she has reach and drive. but needs to gain confidence, nevertheless her qualities earned her BPB & BPIS

Puppy Bitch (3)
1 Wenark May Blossom At Yarlestre Balanced feminine head. Straight front limbs, well ribbed for age. Unfortunately, she loses her topline on the stance, I’m sure this will correct itself as she matures. Moved out well

Junior Bitch 3 (2)
1 Calvdale I Say Of Fallenleaf Super type, the most appealing expression, her overall conformation is excellent. Good deep rib & strong quarters. Moved out well showing reach and drive

Yearling Bitch 3 (3)

Graduate Bitch 4(2)
1 Trimere Ticatboo Typical & fabulous head with a soft expression, strong neck leading into well placed shoulders, deep chest with a good spring of ribs, strong loin & excellent rear angulation. Moved positively on a free flowing stride.
2 Peasblossom Rumours At Strathnaver Slightly different build and proportions to winner, feminine head of good balance with pleasing eye and expression, clean strong neck, firm well held top line, not quite the freedom of movement of the winner.

Post Graduate Bitch 2 (1)
1 Plaiglen Dazzled Good body and type on this girl, she is classic in outline. Correct head and balanced fore and aft she moved with purpose and drive using her tail to advantage

Limit Bitch 3 (1)
1 Cherishym Celaneo Pleasant head on this bitch who was presented in fit condition and good coat. Moved with drive if a bit erratic but holding her topline through
2 Calvdale Maleficent Of Esscroft Bigger made girl than 1st, and she makes life a little difficult for her handler. Her movement was unsettled but her footfall is positive.

Open Bitch 5 (1)
1 Sh Ch Trimere Ticket Maid I just loved this girl. She took my eye as soon as she walked in to the ring. On the stack she is impressive and her movement is stylish and effortless with good reach and drive. Well-constructed head with an alert but soft expression, good fore and aft angulation and a firm topline. Well off for bone and the best of feet. Handled well and presented in tiptop condition BB & BIS
2 Sh Ch Beaters Bedazzled Lovely size and shape, balanced throughout and fits the standard so well. Well balanced head with the best of eyes and such a soft expression. Well ribbed back to strong loin and strong quarters. Super muscular condition which translated into effortless driving movement. RBB
