1st: 1897 FLATT, Messrs B & S & Mrs B & FLATT, Mrs Kimmax Keep My Actions Klear for Belstock. Lots to like about this delightful puppy. Possesses a very pretty head with a soft eye and inquisitive expression. Mature in body with good depth and balance. Just the right amount of bone. Good front and lovely width to hindquarters with well bent stifles. Accurate on the move but carrying just a tad too much weight today which spoiled her overall outline. 

2nd: 1908 STAMP, Miss B Tynsil Just One Smile. This 6 month old puppy was definitely enjoying her day out! All the essentials are there. She just needs time and patience to get her to display her attributes. BPB
