1ST 6005 - Sh Ch Zorrazo Quest for Success (Imp Hrv) JW (Dr K Hodgkinson). What a great example of the breed. He typifies the standard and totally filled my eye when posed with his robust appearance and distinctive coat. His balance is apparent as he stands most comfortably to show off his many attributes. He is just slightly longer than tall, has a short, strong neck, well angulated front, level back, deep brisket, big ribs and strong quarters. His head has parallel lines, a flat skull and is correctly proportioned. He has very expressive and somewhat obliquely set eyes, well set ears and a strong jaw. His coat is long and hangs in wonderful cords of the right texture. He shows off his athleticism on the move with his brisk action and powerful drive from behind. Handled to perfection to take BD, BOB and Gundog Group 4. He is some dog.

1ST 6009 - Sh Ch Zorrazo Hey There Yogi Bear (Dr K & Mr M Hodgkinson-Rutherford & Rutherford). He is very well balanced in both head and body. I loved his dark eyes which were well set apart. He has a short strong neck, strong bone without heaviness, depth of chest and well muscled second thighs. Powerful mover. RBD.

1ST 6001 - Prizelands Adormidera Jacsen Solo (Mr F & Mrs C & S Donaldson & Glaysher). Oh those eyes! The standard calls for very expressive eyes and I could have stared into his all day. He is very well made and impressive on the move. BVIB.

1ST 6015 - Prizelands Fondant Fancy (Mrs K Thompson). What a lovely girl. Well proportioned, straight front and rounded quarters. Plenty of heart and lung room. Great curls. Moved well. BPIB.

2ND 5999 - Prizelands Frosted Fancy (F Donaldson). Litter sister to the winner and just as lovely. She is a good shape and size but was just a little unsure of herself today. Their breeder should be very proud.

3RD 6017 - Espiritu Feria del Caballo (Mrs L Walker)

1ST 6014 - Kurlibears September Truffle (Mrs K Thompson). Good front, depth and ribs, level back. Flat skull, slight stop and oval eyes. Strong quarters used well to drive her round the ring.

2ND 6016 - Brookview Beaulieu Con Espiritu (Mrs L Walker). Slightly broader head than the winner but still elegant and with parallel planes. Lovely big ribs. Woolly texture to coat. Moved rather closely behind.

3RD 5995 - Lendever's Opaque Attitude (Mrs R & Mr A Capille)

1ST 6004 - Oh You Are Magic vom Hause Kristo of Goldfly (Imp Fra) (Mrs S A Grief). Nice size and shape. Excellent woolly coat with curls handing in cords. Pleasing head and eye. Short neck, clean shoulders and moderate angulation behind. Moved briskly with drive. RBB.

2ND 6000 - Kurlibears September Aurora (Mr F & Mrs C & S Donaldson & Glaysher). Just off square she has a feminine well proportioned head, short neck and moderate angulation. Moved well, just wish she’d got her tail up.

Three very good bitches.

1ST 6006 - Sh Ch Chanderhill Hecho En Espana Jww18 (Dr K & Mr M Hodgkinson-Rutherford & Rutherford). Robust and athletic, just over square with strength throughout yet still feminine. Short neck, clean over shoulders, good spring of rib and well muscled quarters. Lovely mover. BB.

2ND 6011 - Conbrio Box of Delights (Mrs N Spencer). Very attractive, lovely eye shape and expression. Good forehand. Today she held a stronger topline and moved better behind than the third placed bitch who I liked a lot.
