Lovely 8 month old Black & White dog, loved his confident and proud manner, showing himself off to advantage. Like his overall body proportions, Pleasing masculine head, with parallel planes, dark kind eye with alert expression. Correct short neck, enough depth to the body, straight forelegs, and ribs carried well back. Liked his hindquarters showing good width of thigh, a little steeper in croup. Presented in good order, curls a little open at present. Moving out with a lovely side gait, keeping a firm topline

Very smart and rustic 3 year old dog, liked him for his overall size, substance and masculinity. Correctly proportioned body, with strength all through. He has a calm yet upstanding demeanour and shows himself off. Masculine and well balanced head, dark kind eye, strong clean neck, liking his depth and spring of rib.

Impressive and typical in outline and construction, this 2 year old Black & White dog very workmanlike and rustic. Thought him to have well balanced body lines, proportionate and masculine. He has strength to his head without a hint of coarseness, super dark eye given a gentle yet thoughtful expression. Clean strong neck, good depth to the ribcage, well boned limbs, firm topline, good width of thigh and in good muscletone. Superb coat texture and curl. On the move free and positive – BD & BOS

1st: 3128 PALUMBO Mrs C J Rainethyme Memory Keeper  

Oh my, just loved this Brown and white puppy, only 8 months old and she stole my heart. She caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring. So typical in outline, lovely balance and body lines. She still has to mature in body as you would expect, but an exciting prospect for the future. So feminine, yet having substance. Nicely balanced head, eye darkening nicely, alert with a hint of naughtiness to her expression. Depth and ribbing coming along for her age, kept a firm topline both stood and on the move. Good curl to the coat and well handled. Her footfall was positive, with a brisk driving action – RBB & BP, lovely to see her shortlisted in a really strong puppy group

1st: 3127 GLAYSHER , Mr & Mrs S C & DONALDSON Mrs F Prizelands Sweet Truffle  

Much to like on this 2 year old light brown and white bitch. Shows herself off with confidence, being keen and eager to please. A slightly larger frame, but well proportioned and still feminine all through. Liked her appealing head, well shaped eye and colour toning well, strong short neck, enough depth, firm topline, good hindquarters with a well set on and carried tail. Shown with a coat of good curl. Moving at one with her handler to show a good side gait.

1st: 3130 WALKER Mr & Mrs N P D & F J Valentisimo's Tizi  

Top quality brown bitch, now coming up 4 years of age and looking a picture both when stood and on the move. So ably handled and shown to perfection. I loved her balance and construction, so workmanlike and rustic, but also an aloof noble air to her. She is robust but keeps her femininity. Her head is balanced and with correct parallel planes, strong and clean neck, lovely depth and spring to the ribs, which are carried well back. Ample width of thigh to the hindquarters, with a nice sweep to the stifle and short hocks. Shown in super coat and condition. A pleasure to watch on the move, animated with a brisk gait and true fore and aft – BB & BOB
