Class 287 VD/B (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 844 Follett’s AKC Ch Four Pillars' Tahoe Turquoise (Imp USA) an upstanding 7 year old bitch of good size. Pleasing head in proportion to the rest of her. Amiable expression. Bite could be better. True in front, could have more lay back in shoulders. Good length body nicely covered. Long hindquarters could be stronger and better angled.  Steady mover but unsettled in rear action.

Class 288 PD (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 850 Lerego’s  Teckelgarth Ingot a well grown 8-month-old youngster who has excellent bone and body. Breed typical in head set on pleasing long neck. Attractive head furnishings and good length ears set correctly. True front a little upright, good length body and moderate hindquarters which need to strengthen. A reluctant mover but when he did move his action was the better of this class.

2nd: 847 Johnson & Draper’s Ottaryx Sidney (ai) another 8-month-old male who also has pleasing bone and body. True enough in front with good width across the chest. Would prefer more lay back of shoulder. Looked to be between coats. Good substance of body and needing to have more stifle angle and stronger hindquarters. Needs to be settled on the move.

Class 291 LD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 851 Lerego’s Teckelgarth Indefatigable NAF a sturdy 8-month-old masculine looking youngster. He has pleasing size and substance of body. Pleasing head set on good length neck and well-made forequarters. True straight front, good length of ribbing and body. Strong looking hindquarters of moderate angulation. Overall, he portrays a very breed typical appearance and has a powerful look. Moved freely although a bit close behind. My Reserve Dog CC winner.

Class 292 OD (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 852 Lewis’ Olphae Charman a striking mature 4-year-old who has a handsome breed typical head and friendly expression. Pleasing size and substance; well-made front which I preferred to 2nd. He has a pleasing side profile which displays his ideal size, excellent proportions and required balance. Pleasing good length hindquarters having moderate angulation Stands over the ground well. Displayed better movement than others today. My Dog CC and Best of Breed winner.                                                                                                              2nd: 858 Salt, Lerego & Stringer’s Pr Ch Teckelgarth Dreadnought a substantial rising 4-year-old male who has a particularly handsome head. Strong well boned front and fore-chest, well bodied with broad loin. Stable in hindquarters but I would prefer him to have a little more angle in stifle. Tended to look slack and lose his top-line, good coat and coat texture. Movement was a bit lethargic with poor rear action.

Class 294 PB (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 849 Lerego’s Teckelgarth Ismay NAF a free moving 8-month-old young bitch who is well developed in both bone and body. She has all the basic construction to grow and mature into a quality adult. She is well made all through, is of pleasing size, shape, proportions and balance. Moderate in angulation front and rear. Free, steady action when on the move.

Class 295 JB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 843 Finch’s Conestoga and Crossroads English dream at Ottersla a 17-month-old well-made bitch who is very attractive in profile and is well proportioned and balanced in body. She is houndy and breed typical in head and obviously feminine. True front, pleasing width across the chest, strong neck with a pleasing overall body and moderately let down hindquarters. Moved out with a steady, free striding action. My Bitch CC winner.

Class 297 LB (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 854 Madge & Lerego’s  Teckelgarth Georgia TAF an attractive looking 2 year old who has a mature look. Attractive in head and expression with deep set eyes and good length ears. Strong neck and sturdy body having spring, depth and pleasing ribbing. True in front and moderately angled behind. The better steady mover of this class.

2nd: 853 Lewis’ Blue Fairy's Ticket To Ride To Concara's Olphae a 4 year old mature, houndy bitch who has an abundance of coat but was a bit lethargic which certainly affected her movement and her reluctance to stand steady. She is pleasing in head having plenty of furnishings. Well boned and ample substance of body. True enough in front and moderate in hindquarters. Free moving and more settled than 3rd.                                                                                    3rd: 855 Porter’s Ottaryx Quinevere

Class 298 OB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 848 Lerego’s Teckelgarth Damson a substantial rising 4-year-old mature bitch who has an impressive head and noble expression. Strong, sturdy body. True front although could have more lay-back of shoulder. Well ribbed back with enough spring, depth and length of ribbing. She is moderate in hindquarters and better and stronger in hindquarters than 2nd. One of the better movers of the bitches here today. My Reserve Bitch CC winner.

2nd: 856 Porter’s Ironquest's First In All Things at Ottaryx (Imp US) a 2 year old very typy bitch who has a very pleasing side profile. She is attractive in head of good length and pleasing proportion. Well boned and true in front, sturdy in body and moderate hindquarters which for me needed more definite angle of stifle. Good dense coat. Loose action on the move and tended to crab slightly.
