1ST KESTOS NIMROD OF ROTHENBORG (MRS J E & MS B F COWPER)

Mature male of 2 years, with lovely head and expression and well placed

Dark ears. Good reach of neck and good depth of chest. Well set on tight

Tail. Long sweeping stifle and well let down hocks. Really comes into his

Own on the move, powering around the ring with style and purpose.

CC and BOB. I understand this makes him up, congratulations! Nothing

In the Group, but he represented the breed very well.

2ND CH BOWERHINTON BROUHAHA (MRS T, MAUN)

A most worthy champion, although a very different style of dog. Smaller

Than 1 but still a very typical outline with great overall proportions. Clear

In colour and well marked. Very handsome, masculine head piece and muscular neck.

A well timed gait and very collected on the move. I went for the slightly

Scopier gait of 1 today, but it was a close call. Res CC.

1ST FLORENCE FLORENTINA ROLLSSUPREME (MRS P H CLARK)

Cobby, well built bitch with well set on tail. Mask could be a denser colour

But generally not a lot I would change on this quality bitch. Overall balance

Both static and on the move is exceptional. Excellent coat quality.

When she settled on the move, she was true and economical. BCC.  I

Understand this is her 2nd ticket; I don’t think her 3rd will be far away.

Shelf. Res BCC
