Minor Puppy (1, 0 Abs)

    1st – Furse's CHARNEY GLAMOUR GIRL (Japanese Spitz) 6 mth Bitch. Nice clean wedge shaped head, with good eye and ear. Correct proportion of body, with well sprung ribs and a good, short back. Coorect cat foot, and nicely plumed tail. Still very much in puppy coat, as is to be expected at this age, movement slightly erratic as yet.

Puppy (3, 1 Abs) A very hard class, with 2 lovely puppies, both good examples of their respective breed.

    1st – Moore's MICCOSUKEES NEVER FORGET AT FILLIPERS (Schnauzer) 10 & ½ Mth Salt & Pepper Dog. Strong, masculine head with good drak, oval eye and correct ear. Very good lay of shoulder, with nice and straight foreleg. Nice, straight back, with correct slope and good spring of rib. Excellent muscle tone to hindquarters, leading down to correct cat feet. Excellent movement, with drive and purpose.

    2nd – Rice's RICOX ALL ABOUT LOVE (Tibetan Spaniel) 11 Mth Gold Sable bitch. Good head of correct size and shape and a well cushioned muzzle. Bright, expressive eyes, and well set ears gave a very pleasing expression. Well set neck, with shawl just coming on, good lay of shoulder and correct bow to fore. Well sprung ribs and a firm level topline, which held well. Good muscle tone, fore and rear, led down to correct hare foot. Tail well set, and carried gaily. A little unsettled on the table and on the move today, unfortunately.

Veteran (1, 0 Abs)

    1st – Rice's SAGRAEL MINI ME OF RICOX VW (Tibetan Spaniel) Nearly 14 Yr old Red dog, and a testament to the breed's longevity. Good shape to the head, some teeth not quite there, but to be expected with the advance of years, with a well cushioned muzzle. Good lay of shoulder, and good muscle tone for the age. Still bright-eyed and gay in character. Rich vibrancy to colour, and a lovely coat and tail. Movement was good, a little stilted at times due only to age.
