Judge :- Karen Powney

Thank you to the committee for inviting me and the exhibitors for allowing me to go over your lovely dogs. With a bit of a hiccup to the start of the day with my judging folder having not arrived at the venue for some reason, it was sorted and I had a good entry for my classes. Lunch was super.

Spaniel (English Springer)

Puppy (3,1)

1st Mr P Osbournes Pendarlow Peter Pan with Braego (D) , 11 months old. Lovely boy who fits all the needed bits of the standard. Correct head with chiseling and fluting in pace already good angulation and moved very well in a ring with little matting and a very slippery floor. BPIB.

2nd Miss L & Mr L Ainsley & Nicklins Daenerys Winds of Winter TAF (B), 8 mnths old. Lovely young bitch who was pushing hard for top spot today, lovely head and body well angulated just a little erratic on the move which I am sure is to do with her age and will not continue as she gets older.

BOB and a Group Place for this lovely girl.

2nd Mr R & Mrs SE Coopers Carmandine Cover Girl by Fleurfield  (B) – Lovely Orange and White Girl just outdone today on movement but I am sure given a bigger ring may have shown  herself off a little better. Good lay of shoulder and rear angulation. Sweet head and overall shape.
