Junior Dog/Bitch : 3 entries 1 absent

1st – Lines’ Icescape’s Cause A Stir. Nicely made 11 month old dog. Super head with an excellent muzzle, very good pigmentation, nice thick ears & good placement, correct bite. Good strong arched neck. Moderately, well balanced angulations. Unfortunately he is going through that leggy stage, so looked a little out of proportion, he needs to body up more, but that will come with age. Good bone. Although out of coat, the texture was correct. Once settled, he showed an exceptional side gait, but was playing his handler up a little. Correct waving plume.

2nd – McCarthy’s Icescape’s Lil Ms Sunshine. Litter sister to 1 and unfortunately going through the same growth stage at the moment. Again out of coat but correct texture. Also playing her handler up, but moved well when settled. Good bone, well made with good balanced angulations. An excellent feminine head, good ear placement, correct bite. Good tail set. Preferred the movement, neck and feet on 1.

Post Graduate Dog/Bitch : 4 entries 1 absent

1st – Copley – Holland’s Arctictrek Smoke N’ Mirrors at Katabatic. Very nicely made 10 month dog. Good proportion with correct bone. Maturing nicely for age. Well balanced side gait, balanced angulations. Correct head for age with small ear & good placement. Correct bite. Good pigmentation. Correct eye shape & set. Good feet with well arched toes. Strong rear, sufficient muscle for age. Lovely coat with good texture. Correct tail set. Needs to tighten in front, but that will hopefully come with age. Pushed hard in his next class. Outline won him his BP. Also went PG4.

2nd – Gaunt & Underwood’s Lapema Regina De Royito. 3 year bitch. Nice feminine expression, ear set a little low. Correct bite. Good bone for size. Would prefer a little harsher coat. Would prefer more leg length to make correct proportion. Moved OK. Carrying a little too much weight.

3rd – Wolfe’s Snowshoe Destined To Be at Dreamwolves.
