Italian Spinone (Bitches):

Italian Spinone PG Bitch (1):

1. Blackburn and Williamson’s Gioviale Capriccioso, feminine with pleasing head planes, correct coat, good through body, moved freely in profile, free and relaxed movement, albeit a little close behind;

Italian Spinone Open Bitch (3):

1. Belcher’s Ir Sh ch Hastabbi Tropicana at Sosteli, robust and solidly built, strong bone, pleasing coat, good depth of muzzle, kind eye, sound true mover, BB;

2. Belcher’s Netis Mahala at Sosteli, pleasing bitch who is sound, feminine all through, rather longer through body so preferred the overall balance of 1;

3. Blackburn and Williamson’s Testaverde Little Foxes

For BOB I was most happy to agree with my co-judge that Sh Ch/Ir Sh Ch Afterglow Hashtag Scandal at Bessalone be BOB – what a lovely specimen of the breed, squarely and solidly built, well made all through, lovely head with correct planes and pleasing eye, giving super expression, correct topline which is maintained on the move, carries himself so well in profile, pleased to see him go BIS.
