Veteran Dog (1 Entry 0 Absentee)
1st - Gray's Strom Footloose for Grasilva (Imp), he is big enough but he is handsome, very good head and good ears. Good neck and front well angulated. Enough bone, tail a little bit open, could have tighter curl. Moved well, good balance.
Special Beginners Dog (0 entries)
Puppy Dog (4 entries, 1 absentee)
1st - Mortimer's Laakso Canute, very promising puppy. Correctly built, not over- angulated, enough body and bone, excellent tail and coat quality. Moved very well.
2nd - Cowper's Rothenborg Peder, another very good dog, rounder in skull than winner. A little bit short on the leg but excellent coat and colour. Moved positively.
3rd - Maydon's Barbelka Breakfast Brew Av Elfsea
Junior Dog (1 Entry, 1 Absentee)
Post Graduate Dog (0 entries)
Limit Dog (2 entries 0 Absentees)
1st - Medhurst's Ellahyde Fine N'Dandi, well made, although could be shorter in body. He is a good dog with good coat quality but a bit close behind on the move.
2nd- Maydon's Branika Elf Tea Av Elfsea, needs ring training! I couldn’t really assess him on the move or standing but he has much to like. Teach him !
Open Dog (3 entries 0 Absentees)
1st - Cowper and Cowper's Kestos Nimrod of Rothenborg, a big handsome god. Good powerful movement, can flip a bit in front but nothing is perfect. He has correct proportions, correct coat and colour, good tail. CC.
2nd - Maun's Bowerhinton Brouhaha, good outline, rounder in skull than winner, enough of everything, a good dog who deserved the RCC.
3rd - Daly's Ch. Whittimere Indianapolis
Veteran Bitch (1 entry 0 Absentees)
1st - Cowper's Rothenborg Leaha, beautiful. She is a very good size, excellent coat, lovely tail, correct mover, excellent shape. She teems with quality, her front extension on the move is excellent. CC.
Special Beginners Bitch (0 Entries)
Puppy Bitch (3 entry 1 Absentees)
1st - Allchin's Barbelka Betty Boop of Carolon, medium size, well put together, I would like more step and more foreface which may well come. Much to admire.
2nd - Cowper's Rothenborg Petrea, leggy and rangy bitch, has a good skull but she fails a little in foreface, she is very mature. Time will tell with this girl.
3rd - Brown's Laakso Cara
Junior Bitch (1 entry 0 Absentees)
1st - Maun's Bowerhinton Bettina, correct proportions, very promising head. Good neck, enough body and bone, moving well particularly in profile.
Post Graduate Bitch (0 entry)
Limit Bitch (1 Entry 1 Absentee)
Open Bitch (3 entries 0 Absentees)
1st - Clark's Aftonlee Ayrlie Winds, (Imp), a strong well made bitch, typical head and expression, correct in all departments and moved well. Had to stand second to the veteran today, RCC.
2nd - Clark's Florence Florentina Rollsupreme, could have a bit more height of leg, but a lovely head of length and quality. Not as good in upper arm as the winner, well angulated behind, giving very good movement. Has a good coat and colour.
