1 Sh Ch Brightmeadow Never Say Die JW ShCM. A very impressive male with stature, a great outline and tremendous showmanship. Appeals for type all through, but particularly excels when on the move. Smart headed male with strength in underjaw. Good length of neck from his well-laid shoulder, and useful upper arm. Well ribbed back to short loin. Strong over the croup and carries his tail well. Moderate in hind angles with excellent muscle tone. Powers off from his low hocks when going away, and tidy in footfall. Goes around the ring with some ease, BD & BoB. 2 Fleetpaw One For Arthur & 3 Fleetpaw Wondering Star. I feel it only fair to critique both of these dogs, as each appealed in different departments. I liked both of their outlines, and perhaps Wondering Star is a little more up my street at the moment as One For Arthur has some maturing on to do, however Arthur was a lot more confident during assessment which was the deciding factor on the day.
