1st: Young & Nilsson’s Afterglow Virginia Woolf With Anorien. Black, a really feminine 9 month old, not the largest but as per the standard. Gorgeous head qualities, mischievous eyes, great chin. Square solid body, with strong loins and correct tail set. Super balance of front and rear angulations which that effortless, accurate, movement demonstrated. A most impressive puppy. BB & BPIB.

2nd: Matthews and Lynn’s Afterglow Alice in Jazz, 11 months. Another pretty black girl with a lot to offer, nicely made and standing on good feet, appeared a touch tall but maturity of body will balance. Moved well and handled to perfection. Another one to watch. RBB
