1st Whitehead’s Gladsheim Helios. What a star in the making this boy is. 10 months and of lovely size and slightly longer than tall. Curved skull, with brown almond eye with ears set just above. Well muscled neck leading into well laid back shoulders and correct front angulation which matched his rear. Held his level topline throughout the class on both the stand and move. Movement was spot on as he flowed round the ring & always true. A pleasure to award him Best Dog and Best Puppy. He just lost out to his dam for Best of Breed on maturity.
2nd Suiter’s Genetika Rumpelstiltskin. 11 Months and very similar in shape & size to 1 and many similar comments apply, just deeper in muzzle and didn’t have the attitude of 1 on the move today. However, he is still a well-made dog with correct angulation front and rear, straight legs and level topline
3rd Frankcom’s Genetika Tiny Tom Thumb
Res Guy’s Gladsheim Eleodoro

1st Suiter’s Chriskoois Octavius At Genetika. I loved this dog when I judged him as a puppy, and at 2 years old he has now filled his promise. I love his head, curved skull, almond eye and good ear shape and set which contributes to his lovely expression. Standing on oval feet he has lovely angulation and with it fore chest. Moved well with lovely tail carriage. Reserve Best Dog
2nd Williams’Cairnbraid Onwaba Lukimbi Of Gladsheim (Imp Bel). Slightly shorter coupled male. Good bone, standing on oval feet. Correctly made and moved well. Kept in a lovely condition. For me he is a little deep in stop.
3rd Marsden’s Gladsheim Apollo

1st Williams’ Gladsheim Arunika. A little compact girl who owned the ring on the move and true fore & aft. Skull a little rounded and lovely expression. Standing on oval feet, she is made so well.
2nd Suiter’s Genetika Wake Up Aurora. 9 month bitch of a nicer size but still needs time to body up. Lovely head and expression. Moved ok in profile and rear but a little wide today in front. Once fully mature she will come together but will take time.
3rd Allman’s Gladsheim Oriana At Shantess

1st Stewart’s Duckhills Thistledown Dance Of Emmi Over Twybrook (Imp Swe) Rl2 Ex. On the upper size with long legs. Correct skull but a little long in muzzle. Moved well when she wasn’t distracted by the floor!

1st Williams’ Daniella Vom Thyrowberg To Gladsheim (Imp Deu) ShCM. Now 5 years old this bitch has got better and better as she has matured. Lovely size and proportions. Head curved and muzzle wedge shaped, Straight legs and good bone on oval feet, well laid back shoulder and good return of upper arm. Well sprung ribs and chest that reaches the elbows. Well muscled loin keeping her topline level with a slight slope to the croup. On the move this bitch delivers everything, flowing stride with reach & drive with a spring in her step all the way through to award her Best Bitch and Best of Breed.
2nd Suiter’s Cirtaps Hertogin Freya Van Qira-T At Genetika (Imp Swe). A slightly taller bitch but lots of like about her. Good angles fore & aft, correct feet, & legs with a lovely head. Just not as tidy as 1 but still deserving of Reserve Best Bitch
