GOLDEN RETRIEVERS - My first judging appointment, thanks to the exhibitors for accepting my decisions. I was disappointed with lack of muscle tone of some exhibits. However, temperaments were excellent.

P (6, 0a): 1 Mills' Millwater Rumour Has It Nine month old dog. Masculine head, dark eye and good pigmentation. Well off for bone, good angulation with balanced outline and spring of rib. Moved soundly with drive using his strong hocks to advantage. On top form today winning BP and both the Gundog Puppy Group and Best Puppy in Show – well done. 2 Easton's Ramchaine Shuffle and Deal to Eastonwood 3 Mills' Millwater Ribbon of Gold.


J (4, 1a): 1 Easton's Ramchaine Shuffle and Deal to Eastonwood Shown free standing. Nice head, good front angulation, neck and shoulders.  Top line held well on the move. A big dog for his age who will take time to mature into his frame 2 Morrissey's Shepedor Scrumpy Jack 3 Bolton & Saxon's Coco Chanel de la Lande D'Argos with Evenjan.

PG (7, 0a):  1 Saxon's Hollygold Special Moment A naughty but nice dog. Well boned, short coupled, strong head and a good spring of rib. Moved with purpose when settled 2 Morrissey & Smith's Shepedor Victorias Bertie 3 Hughes' Poppygold Rainbow Drops

O (6, 2a): 1 Pett's Rumwood Riesling JW ShCm Well presented pale golden bitch. Nice head and gentle expression. Good front with correct shoulder placement, level top line and turn of stifle.
