GOLDEN RETRIEVERS

PUPPY DOG (3, 0)

1st Golder & Ward’ LAURENLEY VINCENT   

Nicely made 10 months old boy with a cream coat. Correct ear set, dark pigment, flowing neck into well laid back shoulders. Level top line held on the move, good front and rear angles. Well boned with cat like feet. Happy to award BP. Congratulations on BIS 4, well done.

2nd TARSEY & Webb’ MITCHNEL RIVER PHOENIX  

7 month old mid gold boy. Good head with a lovely expression, dark eye and pigment. Nice length of neck, correctly angulated in both front and rear, good spring of rib with a short couple. Strong hind quarters, standing on cat like feet.

3rd Braund‘ NINELL INDIGO

JUNIOR (0)

GRADUATE (1, 0)

1st Brennan‘ CAMROSE XPERT GAMEKEEPER

Needs time to settle, which didn't help as he was the only dog in the class. Very nicely made but he was too excited to be assessed correctly. Dark pigment, nice head, pleasing angles, moved with drive.  Further training should enable the owner to present their dog in a more settled manner.

POST GRADUATE (3, 2)

1st Seamons‘ MESSANO BLUE SUEDE SHOES  JW  

Masculine head with a pleasing expression, good length neck into well laid shoulders, level top line with correct tail set, good angles front and rear. Excellent spring of rib and depth of brisket, short coupled, well off for bone with cat like feet.  Presented a lovely outline which was maintained on the move. Very pleased to award him Best Dog with my co-judges’ agreement Best of Breed. Happy to see that he was short listed in Best In Show ring.

OPEN DOG (2,0)

1st Barber‘ STVINCENT GOLDEN GUN FROM  SWANSREACH

Cream boy with masculine head, correct ear set with dark eye, kindly expression, strong neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Level top line held on the move, well sprung ribcage and short in coupling, good angles front and rear. Happy to award him RBD.

2nd Manley’ MALTQUDOS NORDIC WARRIOR JW

Dark gold boy, very close up to 1, but just preferred 1 on the move.
