1ST Ohanaway Basket Case (Mrs X Franklin) – nearly 2 yr old male, good bone & balance, mature in head with good skull, nice ear set, good expression, with good muzzle, would like a touch more infil under eye, which will probably come with age, nice front, good ribbing, topline could be a touch firmer, good tailset, nice stifle, nice on the move.

2ND Cecil vom Bruggener Land mit Aescwine (Imp Deu) (Miss S M Linney) – 2 ½ yr old nice bone for size, needs to mature in head, but nice proportions, pleasing angles front and rear, touch longer in body than 1st, and higher tail set, touch close on movement at the moment. Again, as he matures this could change.

Pleased to award him the CC, and see he is father to my eventual BOB

2ND Ch Starvon All Eyes On Me at Valltineya (Miss Pallatina) – 6 yr old,older brother to above who I have awarded top honours to before. Very close between these two and was just splitting hairs, just preferred the infill under the eye, and the rear action on 1st dog, but not taking anything away from this dog, as he is beautiful, lovely head & skull, good ear set and good eye shape and colour, again very well ribbed, holding a steady topline, and overall moved well.
