A lovely breed to judge. I found them to be rather mixed for size and type. A few mouth issues, which needs care. Some toplines were poor, and more like a Coton, and a few far too narrow in front. Temperaments lovely, and most well presented without going too far. Puppy D (4,1) 1. ROXHOLM PIED PIPER (MRS S CLEMENTS) Super pup, full of fun. He has a well balanced, masc head. Dark eyes, which could be slightly larger. Lengthy neck into well laid shoulders. Well ribbed back. Firm topline. Well set and carried tail. V good rear. Moved v well with lengthy strode. RCC & BP 2. PANDAPRINT BELIEVE IN MAGIC (MISS H MCCALLUM-SEALY) Also a super pup. He has a well balanced head. Dark eyes. Not the shoulder of 1 and he can firm up in front action. Super body, well ribbed back. Excellent rear, well bent stifle with low hocks and uses so v well. 3. HABANAS BONITA TE QUIERO HAVALAG (MR P GROCOCK) Junior D (1 abs) Post Grad D (2,1) 1. DIANAIA FABULOUS FOREVER (MS D M MCCALLUM) Liked his proportions and he was the better mover of these 2. He has a masc head, dark eyes. Needs more width of underjaw. Lengthy neck.
