A very distinctive breed and some good representatives here today.

Class 2103 PD/B (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 8582 BECKERS Mrs C Ryuukita Yuna No Otome

A litter brother and sister. This is a feminine puppy bitch. A typical outline and good quality coat. A good front assembly and nice convergence on the move. BP

2nd: 8585 BLACKBURN, Mr M & MCGRATH Mr J Ryuukita Imaru No Musuko

A male who is growing on well. Good coat but urajiro could be more defined. Tail needs to settle. Excellent head proportions.

1st: 8589 DUFFIELD Mr E & Mrs N Hasaki Team Nobu (Imp Serb)

Most lovey head shape and pigment with well inclined ears. Moderate angles. Looks a little long in hock at present but uses his legs well on the move. Just needs to mature now.

Beautifully coloured, with bright translucence. Excellent and still masculine head and profile. Short back and well muscled. Good tail set and moderate angles. I feel he still has some more maturing to do. BD

2nd: 8596 THOMAS Mrs T Nosferatu's No Uchimura Go

A lighter red male. Excellent head shape and well spaced ears. Stands well and good convergance on the move. Just preferred the more oriental outlook of winner.

Younger bitch who I didn’t get notes for. Stylish girl with many qualities. Preferred head and expression of the Bitch winner, but this girl has a lot to offer.
