My thanks to the committee for inviting me. It was an honour & a pleasure to be asked to judge here. I was delighted with the overall quality. Presentation on the whole was very high. Some dogs were lacking in muscletone which I believe showed on the move.

1st: 8280 CORBETT Mrs A E Trimere Tidal Wave
nicely balanced youngster who wasn’t as mature as the others in the class. Pleasing head with a lovely soft expression. Good length of neck leading to well laid shoulders & well angulated front. Level topline & correct tailset. Moved OK when he settled but he was there to enjoy himself & that he did. Would possibly like a little more substance but he is still only a baby. BPD;
2nd: 8290 ROWLINSON Mrs E Cassapple Kentucky Dream At Meltarose
very different larger type of dog. Pleasing masculine head & gentle expression. Good length of neck, depth of chest & well sprung ribs. Would have liked a little more rear angulation. Held his topline on the move & covered the ring well. Just preferred the overall balance of the winner;

1st: 8296 TAUBMAN Mrs K C Meonstoke Hawthorn
14 month l/w boy of a very nice type & a lot to like. Pleasing head with dark eye of almond shape, good width of muzzle & depth of flew which gave him a kind expression. Strong neck of good length into well laid shoulders. Well sprung ribs & nice rear angulation. Presented in very good condition. A bouncy boy on the move, he enjoyed himself a little too much to properly assess his movement.

1st: 8292 SAVELL, Ms C & ALLEN Mr A Petranella Proper Gossip JW
striking l/w boy with an awful lot to like about him. Masculine head with kind gentle expression. Lovely reach of neck leading to well placed shoulders. Ample depth of chest & well sprung ribs. Good front & rear angulation & nicely muscled. Presented in super coat & hard condition. Drove around the ring with presence & ease. Very unlucky to meet the open dog in such top form. RBD;

1st: 8300 WALKER Mr S P & Mrs W M Sh Ch Dexbenella It's About Time JW Sh.CM
a dog I’ve admired from ringside, whose standing went up even higher in my opinion after getting my hands on him. Presented in tip-top condition & giving a very pleasing outline. Masculine head not overdone in any way with a kind expression & lovely dark almond shaped eye. Good length of neck flowing into well placed shoulders. Nice depth of chest with well sprung ribs. Good bone & tight feet. Level topline & correct tailset. Pleasing rear angulation. Very sound on the move covering the ground with ease. This showman commanded my full attention & demanded I awarded him BD & BOB;

1st: 8306 WREN Mrs P Dexbenella Dear Mary at Gwynmarren
2 year old l/w/t bitch of lovely type. Beautiful feminine head with good eye shape, colour & a melting expression. Nice depth of chest & spring of rib. Good front assembly & rear angulation. Carrying a little too much weight for me which let her down. Would have liked a bit more enthusiasm on the move, especially in PGB

my oh my I couldn’t take my eyes of this one, she certainly put a smile on my face. An elegant young lady with quality throughout, presenting a beautifully balanced outline. Feminine head which gave a gorgeous melting expression which screamed ESS. Lovely length of neck & depth of chest. Good angulation fore & aft & neat feet. A level topline in stack which she held to move well for one so young. Watch out for her in the future. BPB, BP;
2nd: 8301 WALKER Mr S P & Mrs W M Lordsett No Comment From Dexbenella (Imp)
very different in type to the winner. Pleasing feminine head with kind expression & dark eyes. Nice shoulder placement, depth of chest & bend of stifle. Good bone for a bitch & very well feathered for one so young. Presented in lovely condition. Moved well holding her topline as she went;

1st: 8299 TAUBMAN, Mrs K & WEST Mrs D Meonstoke Cherry Blossom
14 month l/w girl who just won the class over her littermate on movement. Pleasant head with sweet expression. Good length of neck. Well placed shoulders & depth of chest. Nice bone & tidy feet. Reasonable rear angulation. Held her topline well on the move
2nd: 8297 TAUBMAN Mrs K C Meonstoke Songbird
littermate to the winner & very much the same applies. She held her topline well on the move but a little erratic when going away. I am sure these two will continue to swap places regularly.

1st: 8302 WALKER Mr S P & Mrs W M Dexbenella Inquisitress JW
a bitch I have judged before & who never disappoints. Beautiful feminine head with the sweetest of expressions. Super length of neck leading to well placed shoulders. Good depth of chest & spring of rib. Ample bone for a bitch & tidy, neat feet. Pleasing front & rear angulation. Level topline standing & on the move. Very elegant throughout, she presented just the most beautiful picture. Didn’t go as well in the challenge for BOB with a stand in handler. BOS;
very classy bitch with good substance. Liked her construction & the overall picture she gave. Feminine head but just a touch strong for me. Lovely length of neck flowing to well placed shoulders. Good depth of chest & spring of rib. Level topline, correct tailset & pleasing rear angulation. Presented in gleaming coat & hard condition. Sound on the move & particularly excelled in profile movement. RBB
