1st Pointer - Pipeaway Laura Louisa at Lappakia – my star of the day, never stopped showing and has that classic look of Pointers through the ages and I see was bred by a kennel that we had dogs from at home 40 years ago.

2nd English Setter – Upperwood Summer Sky of Wennvale – as all English Setters from this kennel has the style, construction, elegance and movement that is so important and the slashing tail and driving movement to go with it.

3rd NSDTR - Tivalake Jingle Bell Rock – Dog that I judged earlier in the day, superb specimen of the breed.

4th Labrador - Linjor Black Tuxedo, fit and fabulous Labrador who had been working the day before.

Gundog Puppy Group

1st Cocker - Chativore Calico Sky over Gilcar . Excellent young Cocker with all the attributes to go far.

2nd Bracco - Madreliath’s Omaggio. Love this young Bracco, superb head planes that give the breed their distinctive noble look, so well mad and confident for one so young. Well balanced body, excellent angulation and overall make and shape. Super sound mover, already showing that untiring stride. Unlucky to meet the more mature, older Cocker.

3rd Labrador - Linjor O’Grady, lovely pup that I judged earlier, did well at such a young age in this company.

4th Irish Setter – Siochanna Celtic Lord of Konakakela , nice enough for shape and balance, moved well. Not the quality of the 3 pups I judged in the AVs.
