1st: 1832 MCLAUGHLAN, Mrs L & MCLAUGHLAN Miss C Jet's Be Just And Fear Not At Azrams (Imp). On first impression this dog looked heavy through the front. Decent head and expression. Very good neck. Very good shoulder and upper arm. Proper ribbing, deep as well as a decent spring. Very good balance, moved reasonably well. On stacking after moving he pulled his neck out and relaxed which cleared the illusion of a heavy front and gave him a much more harmonious outline. DCC. ( I learned later this was his third, Congratulations to all his connections)

2nd: 1833 MILLWARD, Misses C, E & M & RACE Mrs L Ch Windspiel Northern Scribe For Alouann. Good outline. Not as pleasing in head as 1st. Good neck. Not quite as good in shoulder and upper arm. Decent for ribbing. He was not as strong off the hindquarters as he could be . RDCC.

3rd: 1825 FITZGERALD Mr & Mrs J & L Ch Boughton Bold And Brave Of Dawnchase Sh.CM

1st: 1831 MCKNIGHT, Ms E & MCLAUGHLAN, Mrs L & ARMSTRONG M Boughton Bizzarrini At Azrams Just filled my eye for shape, outline and balance.. Typical and feminine head, good neck. A lovely harmonious line from neck over the shoulder across the topline with slight rise and down over the croup. Underline good. Front and hindquarters balance each other. Extension on the move with a lovely low to ground action. CC & BOB

2nd: 1835 VERNON Mrs K L Artefakt Ideal Love (Imp). Another very typical bitch with feminine head. Decent neck. She could be a tad stronger through the front. Decent shape and balance. Moved out well.

1st: 1828 HOWLETT Miss R Ch Boughton Balanchine Sh.CM. Very good shape, she is harmonious throughout. Feminine head, decent neck. Good ribbing. Balanced fore and aft. Moved out really well. Found out after the challenge she is mother to the CC winner. RBCC.

2nd: 1822 BOGGIA Miss C Boughton Balenciaga. Of a very similar type to the winner and therefore appealed greatly. She just flattens a little in topline.
