Labrador Retriever OPEN DOG. 1 and BOB. 44. GOSTWYCK MORSE CODE. Black – this male took my eye as soon as he came into the ring. Excellent type, outline and substance. His expression is ideal on an excellent head, with nice neat ears and correct dark eye. strong neck leading into excellent shoulders and body, could do with a fraction more weight on him over the loin area but this will come with maturity, otherwise his body is solid, well muscled and definitely fit for purpose. Excellent feet at the end of straight front legs with excellent bone. His ribcage is the correct shape into a short loin with balanced hindquarters to match his excellent shoulders. Moved like a dream covering ground easily and with purpose but not at an excessive speed, moved straight and true going forward and back. Excellently handled to get the most out of him. Delighted to award him the group. 2. 39. ENGLISH GUARD VON DER SOMMERHOHE FOR TALARD. Yellow – very excitable typey male. Well ribbed and muscled body, a touch upright in shoulder. Excellent body shape and short coupled. Good head with nice ears and expression, dark eye and nice profile shape. Nice tight feet. Moved out well once he settled, would benefit from being able to move out by himself, I felt as though he was just holding his head back a bit on the move which didn't help his front. Excellent bone.
