Junior Bitch (2,0)

Two nice puppies at different stages

1. Rutter’s Chrisford Afternoon Delite 6 months old and litter sister to junior dog winner, this fawn & white puppy had lovely dark eyes, a shallow stop and was long and fine in muzzle. She is still very young so is lacking a little in body but is so elegant and stylish. She rises slightly over the loin with well let down hocks and a good turn of stifle. BPB

2. Bleakly’s Miwell Estee Lauder At 11 months old this red fawn is much more mature and has depth of chest, slight rise over the loin good neck and shoulders and dark eyes, just lacked the elegance of 1st.

1.Righton’s Zephyrelli Raphaella This 3 year old fawn and white bitch had a deep and narrow chest, slight arch over the loin, lovely dark eyes and she moved well. RBB

2. Thompson’s Vendetta Forum Romanum of Bytheiad (Imp Pol) Lovely dark eyes and pigment on this bitch and she had a good depth of chest and rise over the loin but I would prefer stronger bone.

Open Bitch (3,1a)

1. Rutter & Wheeler’s Ch Chrisford Chasin Pavements I judged this blue and white bitch at her very first show and gave her best puppy and I’m delighted to see how she has matured. She is so graceful and elegant, with dark expressive eyes, rose ears,dark pigment, good length to neck, deep narrow chest, slight rise over the loin and turn of stifle BB & BOB

2. Righton’s Zephyrelli Reginnia Fawn and white with dark sparkling eyes, good length to the muzzle, narrow in chest, rise over the loin and correct angulation at the rear. Moved well
