Puppy (1,0) 1st Egginton’s Valentismo Buzz - 8 month raw puppy dog who today was a little up on the leg. Flat skull with correct shaped ears set just above the eye. Stands straight from the front, well angulated. Moved well for age and just needs time to finish and come together. BP

Junior (1,0) 1st Egginton’s Valentismo Brianna - A lovely promising bitch with everything going for her. Strong yet elegant head of correct proportions, short neck leading to good shoulders. Deep chest with well sprung ribs. Level back leading to correctly set on tail. Good curl to the coat and shown in good condition. Moved as her construction suggested with powerful drive . RBOB

Post Graduate (1,2) 1st Nicholls-Ward’s Valentismo Fauna Para Bumbleridge JW - A black and white bitch standing at the upper size but all in proportion. Nice head with parallel planes. Balanced angulation fore and aft which showed in her profile movement. True and straight front movement but moves a little close behind and tends to stand with her hocks out. Still needs time to finish developing but is only 23 months.

Open (1,1) 1st Egginton’s Valentismo Pacopilik - a 7 year old bitch who defies her age in looks and attitude. She is just everything you want in the breed from nose to tail. Head broad with correct planes and proportions to muzzle, Body proportions slightly longer than tall with 50/50 height through legs and body. Deep chest with good spring of rib sit behind her short strong neck. Lovely angulation fore & aft. Her movement was true and sound with powerful drive shown even in a small ring. BOB.
