PD (1) 1st Freer’s Nikara Follow That Dream. Super pup to start the day. Only 8 months old but shows great potential. Good wedge-shaped head, almond eye, dark and expressive. Excellent bite and pigment. Excellent small, well set ears. Good reach of neck . Well laid shoulder and return of upperarm. Good body and in hard condition for his age. Well angulated rear and firm hocks. Excellent feet. High set tail. In full, immaculate coat. BP and thrilled to see him top a good Puppy Group.

JD (2) 1st Moody & Haffenden’s Novaskaya Xander Lefay. Lovely young dog with a classic head piece and expression. Excellent pigment. Small, thick, well set ears, sensitive in use. Reachy neck, good front angulation and bone. Firm body, short muscular loins. Excellent rear and well set and carried tail. Coat good for texture, density and typical for his age. Moved out soundly in all directions. Very appealing in all departments, I liked him a lot. Pleased to award him RBD.

PG (1) 1st Argyle’s Rosskaja Pluto Percy At Elygra. Masculine dog of nice size and sound basic type. Good head shape and well proportioned. Good pigment, almond eye and well set ears. Moderate neck. Good body, short loin and well set tail. Could have a bit more angulation both ends and needs to firm-up in front. Stands on functional feet. Moved well. Good coat.

LB (4) 1st Kirkwood & Jones’ Vandreem Imperial Kazhiya. Impressive looking young dog. Liked him as a pup and good to see him again, maturing along the right lines. Good head, wedge-shaped and well proportioned. Almond, dark eye and strong pigment. Excellent reach and arch of neck leading to a well laid shoulder and return of upperarm. Impressive outline on the stack. Moved soundly in all directions but can drive more from the rear. In-between coats at the moment but what he has is of good texture and presentation. Told after judging he is sitting on 2 CCs, his title can’t be far away. Good luck.

2nd Gwynne’s Rosnorske Obi Wan Kenobi. Super headed dog. Excellent eye and expression. Good pigment and bite. Medium neck, deep chest and good body proportions. Well angled both ends. High tail set and carriage. Moved well enough. Lovely coat and condition. Preferred the overall outline and movement of 1st .

3rd Green & O’Brian’s Taronakits Kall Me Kosmic.

OD (2) 1st Freer & Smith’s Ch. Nikara Diamond Dancer. A real super star! Now 9 years old and always looks and gives 100%. Awarded him BOB in the past and still looks just as good. Everything to like from his beautiful , typical head and expression to his high set and carried tail. Keeps a great outline at all times and moves true and completely sound in all directions. In good coat for texture, density and presentation. Along with his handler, they make a winning combination. Pleased to award him BD & BOB. Good to see him take G2 later in the day.

2nd Prout’s Furzeland Devon Warrior. Masculine dog. Pleasing to go over on the stack with good bone and oval feet. . Lovely head, dark, almond eye and excellent ears. Moved ok. Good coat for texture and presentation.

PB (2) 1st Argyle’s Elygra Ice Precious Moment. Pretty, feminine baby of just 6 months. A bit overawed by the blustery conditions on the day, but settled sufficiently. Nice head and expression. Everything as it should be at this age and, generally, good conformation. Moved ok, once settled.

JB (2) 1st Argyle’s Elygra Ice Poetry In Motion. Litter sister to Precious Moment and quite similar for size and femininity. More forward in body and coat and has a bit more confidence at this stage so carrying her tail better. Good to go over, pleasing head, eye and pigment. Moved well from all directions. BPB.

PG (2) 1st Morris’ Snowtsar Lara’s Song. Pretty headed bitch. Good skull and muzzle proportions with good stop. Excellent ear set, sensitive in use. Very good neck, front and rear end. A touch long in back. Good bone and excellent oval feet. Lovely coat and condition. Tends to pace on the move but once she got into her stride, displayed sound movement. High set tail. RBB.

2nd Meakin & Turner’s Plyushka Gypsy Lunar Star. Another good bitch and better proportioned than 1st , but not quite the angulation . Liked her head and expression. Good reach of neck, excellent depth of chest and well bodied. Good coat and presentation.

LB (4) 1st Gwynne’s Vandreem Imperial Katriona With Rosnorske. Loved this bitch. Feminine and of excellent, functional type. Has balance, length of leg and good proportions. Super head, wedge shaped, good stop and strength to muzzle. Excellent almond eye, dark and expressive. Uses her ears to best advantage. Good bone and oval, compact feet. Excellent conformation which reflected in her economical, sound movement. Not in full coat but what she has is of good texture. BB.

2nd Argyle’s Elygra Ice Maybe I’m Someone. More compact in outline and carrying too much weight but has many virtues. Good head and expression, feminine and pleasing size. Good coat. Moved well in all directions.
