1. Fieldsend’s Du Domaine Des Dhalbergs at Starwell (imp FRA). 2½ years old and a delight to assess, strong masculine head and kind expression, dark eye, good ear set and strong muzzle, good neck with well muscled shoulders, good bone, a lovely picture standing, he moved out with an easy, free, ground covering gait, presented in fit condition with a good coat, BD.

1. Shrieves’ Winarose Wanderin’ Star CPW19 CW22. Lovely male of nearly 4 years, excellent pigment and eye, kind, masculine head, straight front, well angulated front and rear with sound top-line, would benefit from being moved in a lower gear, presented in fit condition, RBD.

2. Hansford/Donnelly’s Le Magicien D’oz Du Clos Millette at Peregos (imp FRA). 6 year old where I would like a slightly straighter front but kind, expressive head, larger in frame than 1 and a shade longer cast, moved out ok.

VD 1(0)

1. Int Ch/Ir Ch. La Petit Rand’s Aikos Xenia at Kawanna (imp SWE). 12 years old and well in himself although slightly lacking condition, kind, masculine head with a lovely expression, nicely angulated all through with level top-line, moved out soundly with good reach and drive, BV.

PB 2(1)

1. Pickering’s Starwell Here We Go Again to Bouvibear. What a really lovely puppy of nearly 12 months, showing lots of promise, I loved everything about her, feminine head with beautiful expression, well pigmented and dark, expressive eyes, beautifully angulated front and rear, she just flowed around the ring and did everything that was asked of her, very free and true on the move and lots of confidence, absolutely delighted to see her awarded the Pastoral Puppy Group, RBB, BP & PG1

1. Bland’s Peregos Bordeaux Beauty at Kiandra. 2 years old, expressive, feminine head with good muzzle, dark eyes and well placed ears, strong neck and well muscled shoulders, coat in good condition, she moved out well in profile although was a little close behind.

LB 1(0)

1. Hansford/Donnelly’s Peregos Minerva’s Wisdom. 3½ years old, kind feminine head, adequate in angulation front and rear, good body proportions with level top-line, looked well when moving in profile but was a little untidy coming and going, presented in good coat and in well muscled, fit condition. 

OB 1(0)

1. Bland’s Kiandra Little Maggie. This bitch of 7 years ticked all the boxes for me for her balance and overall proportions, beautiful feminine head with lovely expression, dark eye and strong muzzle, straight, clean front with correct bone, lovely angulation front and rear with sound, well muscled top-line, she owned that ring as she moved, an effortless, ground covering movement where she excelled, moved true away and back and presented in a lovely jacket, a lovely unexaggerated bitch, BB & BOB.
