1st: 5940 PEACH Mr & Mrs G & M Kilbourne Merak a shapely 13 month old young male who has a graceful top-line and is pleasing in profile outline which I preferred to 2nd. Masculine breed typical in head which is of the shape and proportions I like. True parallel front with enough lay back of shoulder which is in balance with his hindquarters. Powerful in stature with good rise over the loin flowing to nicely let down hindquarters. Pleasing coat and texture. Moved with true extension in front covering the ground well. My Reserve Dog CC winner.

2nd: 5946 TAYLOR Mrs S J Ormanstar Gabriel Norman a 17 month old who has a racy appearance with a more pronounced top-line and fallaway than 1st. Attractive head with well-set ears set onto a good length neck. True well boned front and firm body. Needs to drop into himself which would improve his rear angulation and strengthen his hindquarters. Free moving but tended to be loose in hocks.

Satisfying to note he has firm muscle condition. He moved well enough when settled.

True front, needing more lay-back, good length body but needing more depth. At a stage where he is a bit exaggerated in top-line and steep in fallaway. Moved well with a true precise front action.

Pleasing head shape, feminine and of good proportions and having a friendly expression. She at a stage where she has an overall shapely curvy profile and lacking balance and ideal proportion at the moment.
