All dogs where presented in nice hard condition & all had correct bites & rear dew claws, since last judging the breed it seems to be maintaining breed type which is good to see.

Open – Dog 1 1st HANSFORD & DONNELLY; LE MAGICIEN D'OZ DU CLOS MILLETTE AT PEREGOS (IMP FRA ) Loved this lad as he came in the ring & wasn’t disappointed when I went over him. Loved him for breed type. Strong head nice ear set & strong jaw correct bite, strong muscular neck with good lay back of shoulder, good length of body with well sprung ribs, slight slope to croup & good tail set, feet well padded. Coat of nice weatherproof texture & not over done to obscure his lovely balanced shape. Movement was smooth & effortless BD & BOB

Feminine head with lovely soft expression, dark pigmentation & lovely dark fringing to ears, neck of good length & well placed shoulders with firm topline & good spring of rib, well muscled hindquarters allowed free & steady movement.

Handle needs to relax as when she did dog moved better, feminine head, dark pigmentation & nice length of neck, good lay back of shoulder & well sprung ribs, good rear angulation, once settle moved out well. Coat harsh.

Open – Bitch 2 Judged both these bitches as puppies & said then they both showed promise, lovely to see them now fully matured. 1st FIELDSEND’S KAWANNA MISS SUNSHINE AT STARWELL (RE-IMP); beautifully balanced, correct height to length, with effortless movement. Very feminine head & soft expression, strong jaw with correct bite, good lay of shoulder & well-muscled forequarters, legs parallel from front & rear, gentle sloping croup & good tail set carried low on move, feet well padded & hocks well let down, beautifully presented. BB. Just preferred the dogs more ground covering movement in challenge. 2nd KITCHEN’S; SEVARNA CATALONIA'S ANGEL; Nice honest bitch, not quite as tall as 1st but beautifully in proportion, head slightly finer than 1st, but nice muscular neck & lovely placement of shoulders, ribs well sprung & lovely muscle tone to hindquarters. Shame her dad went for a walk about when it came to res bitch challenge.
