1st Downwards-Reubens Razzle Dazzle Perhaps his first outing? This 6 month charmer tried so hard to please. A well-shaped head of good proportions. Nice size and shape to eye which I’m sure will darken. Pleasing in neck and shoulders with good spring to rib and agreeably coupled. In fine coat and moved well for such a baby. Promising.

PD 2 (1Ab)
1st Topliss-Forest Fruit From Tamaam to Beresford Best Puppy in Show At 9 months old a substantial pup stood on good bone & feet. Pleasing ‘doggy’ head with satisfying expression - eye to darken. Has a lovely moulded skull that flows into arched strong neck and excellent shoulder placement, good depth and spring to rib, well-made hind quarters with nice turn to stifle. Free easy stride won him BPIS.

JD 3
1st Rawding-Dukedel Dream of Mine Has gained confidence with age and experience. This young male appeals for size, overall balance and most attractive headpiece. He conveys a soft expression and head has work which offers both quality and refinement. All body parts fit well together so that in outline he is free from exaggeration. Once settled to the job has good forward reach and driving action. In lovely coat and condition
2nd Warrener-Waterwarren Willy Wonka More substantial and bigger made than 1. Strong, reasonable head that is undeniable dog. Eye to darken but none the less a pleasing outlook. Deep body and powerful quarters. Ample bone and correct feet. A bit of a handful but once applied himself moved well. Beautiful gloss to coat and well presented.
