Crufts

Breed: Bolognese

Not the easiest entry to judge. I was looking for a square, white d. Most had correct coats and none looked over groomed or trimmed. However, presentation left a lot to be desired in some, not just coats, but nails that needed a trim and teeth that were dirty.

Veteran D (3) 1st INT CH PREDATINO BENGI OF MOORHEY (IMP HUN) (MRS S HEWITSON) Squarest of these. Masc head, nice width of skull. He could have better pigment. Enough neck. Well angulated front and rear. Well bodied. Moved v well. 2nd STROPHAIR LUIGI (MRS B R HOPKINS) Slightly longer than 1. Well balanced head and pigment is ok. Moderate neck. Nice front and chest. Level topline. Moved well. 3rd BLOOTOON'S CAMERONS LOON (MR G & MRS E LOVIE)
