WELKS. Lagotto Romagnolo

I enjoyed judging this lovely breed for the first time. Please remember they must look rustic, do not over trim them to lose that look. Some were moved far too fast, and looked so much better when slowed down. Junior D (3,1) 1ST CRISPINO DELLA CAVEJA (MR & MRS A FERGUSON) Really good d. Correct proportions and a super mover. Well balanced head. Correct neck. Moderate and balanced in angulation. Well ribbed. Level topline with good tail set. In lovely hard condition. Top quality. BOB Post Grad D (5,3) 1ST MIZANI DIORBE OF SLOVAKIA SHCM (MS P MCALLISTER) Preferred the proportions on this d over 2. He has a well balanced head. Well set ears. Medium neck. Slightly forward in shoulder but v good front action. Level topline. Well ribbed. Low hocks, could be better going away. 2ND EUONIA BLUEBELL BOY CAMMINARE (MR S, MR J & MRS A WALKER) Lovely character. He has a masc head which is well balanced. Good eye and expression. Correct neck. Balanced in angulation. Just a fraction long. Open D (2) 1ST GAESTER JUST JAGO AT JOYDON (MR D H LIGHTFOOT) More rustic of these 2 dogs. Correct proportions. Correct length of neck. V moderate in angulation. Level topline. Well ribbed. Could just use his rear a bit better but in grand form for almost nine. RBD 2ND MIZANI DOROCCO RAFFAELE (MR A J GRANTHAM) He is a v good profile mover. Rather over trimmed. Liked his head proportions. Correct length of neck. Level topline. Grand rib cage.
