1st. ELKIN Miss M L Tollelkin Water Dancer. Have judged this balanced bitch around 10 months ago when she took RBOB. That extra time has allowed her body to mature and she was in better coat today plus the warm, fresh conditions coupled with a large grassy ring allowed her to demonstrate powerful side gait with high tail carriage. Head is so feminine with wide set eyes that are brown, high set triangular ears, tapering muzzle and medium stop, giving an intelligent and friendly expression, strong forelegs, good width of front, strong muscular neck set on well into laid back shoulders, good length of upper arm, brisket reaching to elbow, excellent spring of rib, strong in the loin, ample bend of stifle into well bent hocks, long tail which was heavily feathered reaching to hock, handled to advantage. Well done! Best Bitch and Best special beginner in breed.

2nd: NEVERS Miss N Tivalake Easy To Love. This quality puppy was very close to winning this class, beautiful wedge shaped head, ample breadth of skull, muzzle of good length and strong in underjaw, high set ears, almond shaped eyes that were well set, clean in neck and shoulders well laid back and good length of matching upper arm, slightly sloping pasterns, deep chest, firm topline, slight tuck up, strong rear quarters with correct set on of tail and length reaching to hock. She excels on the move with typical jaunty style and moves with reach and drive and superb high tail carriage, another superbly handled and presented. Best Puppy In breed.

1st: NEWSON, Ms D & NEWSON Miss T Tivalake Let's Misbehave, a super quality top size puppy who appears very mature for his age, in superb coat and condition and handled to get the best out of him. Makes a balanced picture in profile and has a very attractive head piece with medium size ears that were held erect, well placed eyes with moderate stop, straight front with good width, strong and muscular neck leading into well placed shoulders, good depth of chest, round feet with well arched toes, excellent level topline in the stack and on the move, nice length of loin, very good rear quarters with medium bend of stifle, long tail which was well feathered and with a nice white tip. On the move, he comes towards cleanly and has strong rear drive, in the side gait, his front action is a little inhibited due to a shorter upper arm. Best puppy dog.

2nd: BRAXTON Mrs J Wakaduze Gigi. Six month old raw baby just at the start of his show career but very friendly and happy to perform in the ring. Quite big at this stage so hope he doesn’t grown on too big but has plenty of substance and type with attractive white markings, appeals in head with high set ears, triangular in shape, eyes set apart and almond in shape, strong tapering muzzle and broad in skull, super forechest and good width of chest, chest reaches brisket and moderate tuck up, level topline, long tail which was correctly set on just below croup. Movement was good, just needs to strengthen up all round.

1st: NEWSON, Ms D & NEWSON Miss T Tivalake Let's Misbehave. 1st in puppy dog.

2nd: FOSTER-BROWN Mrs A Stellenbosch Tiberon. Attractive male who I’ve judged as a puppy and he was on his toes throughout, living up to the ‘playful’ nature, with flashy white markings on head, toes, chest and tip of tail. Balanced wedge shaped head and in proportion to body, medium sized ears, good length of muzzle, eyes set well apart and colour blending in with coat, clean neck of just enough length, a little upright in shoulder which affected his front movement, excellent level topline, strong rear quarters with a medium bend of stifle and strong hocks, long tail which was heavily feathered and carried high on the move.

1st: FUARD Miss M Y Tollelkin Bay Of Ice. 5th in special beginners. A well presented friendly dog who is on the larger size so not as compact as I’d like. Head of good size and with plenty of back skull, moderate stop, beautiful expression due to his medium brown eyes and dark pigmentation of eyelids, strong and tight round feet which were well padded, tail set on well just below croup and carried high as he moved round the ring with good reach and drive.

2nd: CANDY Mrs L Decoymans Piper Megrez. A plainer, smaller, compact dog and dark orange in coat colour with black nose and eyelids giving a friendly and alert expression. Ears set high, triangular in shape and well covered with fur. Good length of neck and set on well into shoulders, level topline, slightly sloping croup, tail just reaching to hock. A little flat footed and would make a more balanced picture with more length of leg.

1st: STREVENS Miss H Sh Ch Erikachen Conaire At Tollisty JW Sh.CM. Have judged this quality male before and his results since then speak for himself as he screams Toller, makes a balanced profile picture, is compact, a good size and has the correct front and rear angulation to cover the ground in typical jaunty fashion. His head is also balanced and masculine with good back skull, medium stop, tapering muzzle and almond shaped eyes which gave an alert and friendly expression, ears of triangular shape and set high on the head, lips were tight fitting, strong and good length of neck leading into laid back shoulders, moderate bone, good width of front with ample forechest, ribs were well sprung and with level topline and strong in the loin, one of the most muscled up dogs of the day, he uses his strong quarters to power round the ring, stands on compact round and well knuckled feet, tail long with an attractive white tip and set on high and carried high with an upward curve. Best dog and Best of Breed.

2nd: TITOVETS, Mrs Y & EREMIN Mr S Croat Ch Macdreams Trent From Cashel Vale (Imp NLD). Really close up to 1, attractively marked and deep red in colour. Slightly longer in muzzle than 1 but his head is a wedge shape and is clean cut, with well positioned eyes that are a little light compared to his coat colour but thanks to high set medium triangular ears and good stop, gives a pleasing expression. Clean and strong neck well set on into well placed shoulders, good length of upper arm and chest reaching to brisket, strong forelegs and good substance, very good rear assembly and well muscled, medium bend of stifle and well let down hocks, excellent tail set and carriage with tail covered with plenty of feathering. Really showed his socks off and moved round the ring with springy movement and was pleased to award him Reserve Best Dog.

2nd: FOSTER-BROWN Mrs A Stellenbosch Sausaulito. Another I’ve judged around 10 months ago as a puppy and has grown on to be a beautifully presented quality bitch with good substance, slightly shorter in leg and longer in body than 1 but with a very attractive head that was in proportion to her body, good width and wedge shaped, muzzle tapering to nose, medium stop, eyes set well apart and framed with ears that could possibly be a touch smaller, ample width of front and strong straight forelegs and compact round feet, excellent lay back of shoulder with chest reaching to brisket and moderate tuck up, good bend of stifle and good width of rear, long, well set tail, moved well in all directions.

1st: NEWSON, Ms D & NEWSON Miss T Tivalake More Than Wishes. A very nice quality bitch who I’ve given BOB before around 10 months ago and my opinion hasn’t changed of her, she has just got better. Stands so square and soundly on strong round tight feet, straight forelegs and good width and has sufficient substance but is still so feminine all through, the prettiest of heads with an alert and friendly expression, excellent depth of chest, good ribbing, strong in the loin and well angulated rear quarters, long tail constantly moving and with plenty of feathering, she moves so effortlessly with reach and drive, she just wasn’t in the best of coats today. I’m sure she will make up. Reserve best bitch.

2nd: WEST Miss I A Wakaduze Wi Mimbe At Raynechaser. A well-made bitch who is slightly shorter in leg and is very well handled and presented. Pleasing head with good strength of back skull, wedge shaped and almond shaped eyes that were set correctly, high set ears and she had an alert expression, ample forechest, very good length of upper arm to match her well laid back shoulders, slight tuck up, medium bend of stifle, tail was set on well and carried high, she can really cover the ground with minimal effort but her topline could be stronger and front could be straighter.
