Leonberger. A very good quality entry. J (2). 2 smashing puppies. 1 Niall & Rothery's Debbollinby Fiendish Flame at Davenheath. Delightful puppy bitch of 7 months with excellent forehand. She held a well balanced outline; correct angles fore and aft with depth and strength to quarters. Super head and expression complemented by deep black mask. Strong yet retains femininity. Well boned and standing on good feet. Moved with reach and drive. Best Puppy. 2 Niall & Rothery's Debollinby Warrior Dancer at Davenheath. Handsome big boned boy of 8 months who was extremely close up to winner. Scores in head and well proportioned body with good height to length ratio. Firm top line and put down in good condition. Good width and depth throughout. Very good free moving puppy. PG (3 1). 1. Niall & Rothery's Davonheath Dark Secret. Big girl of 17 months with great size and substance and in full coat. Scores in head and expression with tight dark eye and well set, feathered ears. Straight front, strength to pasterns and excellent condition. Well laid shoulders, correct topline and moderate hind angulation all contributed to a super outline. Positive, purposeful mover with good even stride. Best of Breed. Delighted to see her win Group 1 and Best In Show. 2. Simpson's Simberger Maycas Del Limari. 2 year old feminine bitch with good head, ear and the sweetest expression. Basic construction is good and she was fairly well balanced. Came into her own on the move demonstrating a lithe, easy, even stride. Not wearing her best jacket today and needs to mature on a little more. O (4 2). 1. Niall & Rothery's Benellieson Fruitful Fancy at Davenheath. Mature bitch with excellent head and expression framed by well set ears. Arched neck and super straight front of correct depth and width, standing on tight feet. Shoulders, topline and coupling as to standard she presented a smart and showy outline. Solid rump she moved out evenly and true. Would just like a touch more hind angulation. Reserve Best of Breed. 2. Simpson's Lionslord Cradle of Light at Simberger. Classy, elegant bitch of great size who pressed the winner hard. Feminine yet strong with flowing outline which she retained standing and on the move. Angles fore and aft were good and being in great condition she was very pleasing to go over. Lithe, easy moving girl, I just preferred the head and expression of the winner.
