OPEN DOG (2) 1. Brookes’ Turith The Lawyer at Zetamaz Sh. CM. An old favorite of mine. A very handsome dog, beautifully balanced. A true showman and handled well. Good dentition, long head with flat skull, small dark correct shaped eyes. Super V shaped ears, set on skull correctly. Good neck & lay of shoulders. Nice straight front legs with good bone. Excellent feet and pads.Well ribbed with strong short loin and muscled hindquarters. Lovely harsh coat of good colour. Moved out well. BEST DOG. OPEN BITCH (3) 1. Barker, Averis & Goddard’s Ch. September Morn on Irvonhill. Another wonderful quality bitch from this kennel. Perfect in every way, presented and handled to perfection. I could have admired her all day! Excellent, well-proportioned head, small dark eye, with small v shaped ears set well onto skull. Well laid back shoulders to give excellent forequarters in balance with the hindquarters. Short back with ribs which extend well back and strong loin. Good tail set on. Her movement was exemplary, moving forward and back straight, just gliding around the ring. Presented in first class condition, well- muscled and fit, with a super harsh and wiry coat of a lovely colour. BEST BITCH, BOB & GROUP FOUR. 2. Hardman’s Bonosue Painted Lady. Same sire as No 1, who I have always admired. Feminine bitch, well balanced, giving an appealing outline. Nice long head of good proportions, correct small dark eye, with lovely ears, carried and set on well. Good length of neck, nicely built with good tail set. Nice harsh and wiry coat of good colour. RESERVE BEST BITCH. 3. Hardman’s Bonosue Whippersnapper. Dam of No 2. Nice head, eyes and ears. Good outline with correct coat. Not such a good mover as the other two. JUDGE Felicity A. Snook
