2ND CHARAMESE HECTOR Barbet (MR R & MRS J MCDOUGAL)

Veteran – Bitch (1)

1ST NOVAFORESTA DORA AT CHARAMESE Barbet (MR R & MRS J MCDOUGAL) The interim KC breed standard calls for a medium size rustic animal with dense covering of curls, my word this bitch certainly has it. I loved her she showed herself off to perfection. Good strong head, wide and round skull, square muzzle and the correct coat and beard on her head and body. Lots of curls totally rustic in appearance. Body was firm and she held her topline and at 10 1/2 years young that’s impressive. Her movement was a pleasure to see, both in profile and fore and aft. In the challenge for bob she did feel the heat which I think we all did at some point during the day. Thank you for bringing her.RBB and Best Veteran.
