1st: JONES, Mr G S & JONES, Mrs J C. EWTOR CRAZY KINDA LOVE AT PENNYBECK Liver. So much to like in all departments with the most delightful head. Level topline with correct tail set. Today’s weather conditions evidently played a part as she was not so happy on the move albeit her footfalls out and back are so good. I would like her to use her tail a bit more. She is so well presented and in excellent order with defined muscle.

What a cracking class. Thank you all so much for supporting me and giving me such a headache. Classes with dogs and bitches of this quality against each other almost always feels unfair to someone. I can happily say that I really was nit picking heavily between my top placings, and whilst I appreciate coat is not everything it is still nice to see the finished product, always more difficult for the girls when challenging against mature boys I wish they had a separate class.

1st: Moss, Mr A D. SH CH FECIMUS CHASE THE DREAM TO EWTOR JW. This liver dog has an excellent topline and tail set and well put together constructionally. He has plenty forehand with corresponding scapula, good width over the quarters and short from hock to heel. Good length of rib cage with well sprung ribs which are deep and carried well back to his strong muscular loin. He has correct flat bone. Pleasing head with correct ear set and length and well proportioned. It is in his movement that he excels. Long striding and moved at the correct speed for the breed. He pushes off his short strong hocks and he is tidy out back and around. No matter how much I asked him to go he put it all in. Best of Breed and Best Dog. Thank you for bringing him.

2nd: Mosedale, Mr R & Mosedale, Mrs S & Rossiter. ELGERT DISCO INFERNO AT KNIGHTSBAY. Black. Another top quality exhibit who was put down today in absolutely top class order. He was quite striking on initial glance and carries himself well on the move. Excellent layback of shoulder with excellent ribcage in depth, spring and length. Strong loin and well developed hindquarters. Excellent ear set and length, dark eye clean in foreface and pleasing in back skull. Such a lovely head with so much to like. He moved well just could not match 1 for front extension today in this heat. Totally from the top drawer he really did impress me. RBD

3rd: Lewis, Mrs S & Lewis, Mr G & Adams, Mr D. IRISBEL CHERISH YOU. Black. Feminine, balanced with good bone. Excellent topline and tail set. Well-developed quarters, good width to first and second thigh. I liked her ribbing and strength of loin. She’s a real tidy mover and has a definite air of nobility about her. Her head is so appealing with a beautiful expression. Not overdone or exaggerated in any way. She was put down in excellent coat, condition and muscle. She appealed greatly. BB.

Res: Willcock, Miss P & Willcock, Miss M DYNARKARAKY DEUCES ARE WILD. Liver. Cracking little package in all departments with a definite air of nobility, so full of type, she had much appeal but unfortunately she was rather naked in furnishings today and whilst I appreciate that coat is not everything it just left her slightly disadvantaged. I would love to see her again when she’s coated up a bit more. Really nice constructionally with the most gorgeous head which screamed type as soon as you looked at it. Most appealing in eye and expression. Balanced throughout. Good topline and tailset, nicely angled front and rear and very nice ribbing. Correct length to height proportions. She has much to commend. Moved out well. RBB.

1st: PORTER, Mrs J M: PRUSSIA BEST KEPT SECRET OF WINSBROOK. Liver Pleasing head. Decent angulation in front, enough ribbing. Has plenty width to hindquarters and on the move drives off short, strong hocks. Would prefer a little more fill in front. BVIB
