PD (1)

1. Crawley’s Ragus Time Of My Life. Quality pup, so cobby and compact in appearance. Masculine well balanced head, neat ears and very dark oval eyes all aiding his keen expression. Strong legs, nice tight elbows, good length of neck flowing into well laid shoulders, level topline and well set on tail. First class presentation with harsh jacket and good undercoat. Free and easy movement with good drive from behind. Pleased to award him RBD and BP.

1. Smith’s Javidel Walk In The Park. Mature cobby dog with an attractive masculine head, well placed ears, broad skull, dark oval eyes and good bite. Nicely put together with plenty of substance, nice tight elbows, would like a touch more neck, level topline and well set on tail. Shown in lovely coat and condition. Moved out soundly with good drive from behind.

OD (3,1abs)

1. Crawley’s CH Ragus Scouts Honour. This quality dog stood out for me, so cobby and compact with a beautifully balanced outline. Gorgeous well balanced head and bright intelligent expression, neat ears, darkest of eyes and very good bite. Well boned, lovely deep well ribbed body with nice tight elbows, level topline and well set on tail. Shown in fabulous coat and condition. Moved out true both ways with a free and easy gait with good parallel rear movement. Pleased to award him BD and BOB.

2. Hayes’ Ragus Fabulous Clown SHCM. A lovely typy dog, pleasing size just slightly longer cast than the winner so not quite so compact looking, but has plenty of substance and bone. Attractive head and expression, dark oval eyes and very good bite. Strong neck, level top line and tail set on well. Shown in great condition and sporting a harsh jacket. So well-schooled, he moved out with good drive from behind, just a touch wide in front coming on.

1. Hayes’ Ragus Seven Jumps. Charming little girl showing lots of promise, a bit out of coat, but nothing to hide and it is a harsh texture.
