My thanks to the committee for the invitation and for making me feel so welcome, & my two competent stewards. We were very lucky with the weather, a bright warm day but with a cooling breeze. Thank you to all the exhibitors for taking my decisions so sportingly and bringing such quality dogs for me to peruse.
PD (1)1st. Atkinson’s Moortop My Mark Again. BP Smart 9mth red d, handsome masculine head super eye & good bite. Good neck length, well placed shoulder, good body proportions. Level top line, pleasing rear quarters. When he gets his act together should put on a good show. Moved more positively in the challenge.

Congratulations.
VD (1) 1st. Green’s Ch Wharfvalley Diamond Star. BV. A 9yr special boy, with a masculine head, good body condition, good straight front, deep chest topline & excellent tail set. Just a little wayward in rear movement today.
JB (2) 1st. Haydon’s Villassa Jelliwobble At Earthtaw Two youngsters at the raw stage of growth, I chose this one because of her more balanced body proportions. Of an excellent type, attractive head, good neck & shoulders, good spring of rib, level topline & good rear. Moved well. Well presented, give her time & you will be rewarded.
2nd. Macbean’s Pryovale Bow Belle Feminine head with good eye & black button nose, good neck length & good shoulders, level topline & good rear. More length to her loin than 1. Showed well & settled to move well.
LB (4) 1st. Gee’s Watercroft Pink Fizz. RCC 1 & 2 pushed each other for top spot, both beautiful bitches. Loved her feminine head, good eye & ear, excellent strength of muzzle. Good front, legs & feet, good topline, short back, good spring of rib, excellent rear setting her driving movement. Shown in great condition.
2nd. Phillips’s Blakens Look No Further. I guess on another day it could be hers to win, it really was a close decision. Either bitch I would be proud to own! I love this girl’s outline, super neck & shoulders, level topline strong rear. Good head, dark eye & good set on of ears, would prefer more of a wedge shape to muzzle. Good bite. Shown & presented in great form, moving soundly.

Moved so positively around the ring, free standing with such presence. In excellent coat, a real pleasure to judge.
