1st: 1117 SWEET Mrs T & Mr J Bondadosa Beach Sh.CM

Liver boy rising 4 years old. I liked his head which was expressive and with good proportions, would have liked his eyes a shade darker. Short strong neck and well laid back shoulders and correct height to length ratio. For me I would like a little more width in rib, firm through the loin. Coat in good condition, he is well-muscled and he moved out well.

1st: 1116 PALUMBO Mrs C J Rainethyme Memory Keeper

I found her very appealing indeed and she has lovely breed type. She has a very feminine head with lovely pigmentation and dark eyes with a lot of mischief behind them, ears correctly set, good neck into well placed shoulders and straight front. Correct balance and proportions throughout. Good topline and rear angles. Carrying a very heavy coat for one so young. Good reach & drive, true coming towards me but she was a tad close behind. Best Puppy and Reserve Best Bitch.

1st: 1118 TREBERT Mr P Valentisimo's Ballesteros

This smart dog is impressive on the stack, good overall shape. Head is masculine, still need to finish but has plenty of time for that. Strong and powerful in the neck. Shoulder placement good with a decent return of upper arm. Ribs well sprung and strong loin. Held his topline well. Quarters well-made and was in good condition. Coat super of correct texture and curls. Just not a fluid on the move as he needed to be in front action so gave way to the open winner. Reserve Best Dog.

1st: 1114 DONALDSON, Mesdames F C & PALUMBO Mesdames C J Prizelands You're The One For Rainethyme

This chap was my best dog at the club show as a youngster and I said then that I was looking forward to seeing him a the finished article, and I got that opportunity today. He has a head of good proportions, parallel planes, good eye shape which gave an appealing expression. Carries ears correctly. Short muscular neck which led on to well-placed shoulders. Good front assembly, straight legs and elbows set correctly. Depth to his chest, level topline held throughout, good through the ribs which are springing nicely, firm loin. Moderate quarters which are well muscled. Has good drive and profile action. Good coming towards me but a shade close behind today. Best Dog and Best of Breed, thank you for bringing him again.

1st: 1115 GRIEF Mrs S A Chasjenka Tiggywink of Goldfly

A new one to me and I really like this lovely bitch has typical head of excellent proportions, a lovely eye and ear set. Strong short muscular neck into well laid back shoulders. Well-sprung ribs and depth to chest. Good bone and straight front with tight elbows. Correct height to length ratio, she held her topline very well. Moderate rear angulation with a good bend of stifle. On the move she was sound as a pound and I was delighted to make her Best Bitch.
