1st: Matthews & Peck’s Byquy Workin Boots. Gorgeous size, square and compact. Loved the colour distinction. Shown in good coat and condition. Excellent masculine head without coarseness, almond shaped dark eyes, good spectacles, complimentary length of neck, shoulders well laid, sturdy legs and padded tight feet. Body well ribbed with strong loins and quarters; tail correctly set on. Super mover holding a secure topline. I understand he had recently gained his title. BD & BOB.

2nd: Harris’s Ch Neradmik All About The Boy For Watchkees ShCM. Lovely for breed type and overall construction. Clearly an accomplished showman. Beautiful head shape, eyes and ears; loved the expression it all portrayed. He moved really well. Just coming back into coat so limited denseness of ruff. Close call between two worthy champions. RBD without hesitation.

3rd: Hickson & Hickson’s Kichigai's Only The Lonely

Neat triangular ears, well placed. Moved superbly for one so young. BB & BPIB.
