Special Awards

Junior Dog or Bitch

1st Pabiaga Sergio. A very balanced 10 mth old dog in very fit muscular condition. His head has parallel lines and a flat skull, correct proportions, expressive eyes and finishes with a lovely big nose. Good angulation fore and aft with plenty of dog in front and heart and lung room. Lovely woolly coat. Brisk mover showing a clean pair of heels as he goes away.

2nd Janamorio Northern Izzy at Aguamarina Very impressive 15 mths old bitch in fabulous coat. She is so very well muscled with large thighs and good development of second thigh. Loved her head which was strong and elegant. Not as strong in hock as the winner but moves out well. Close call.

3rd Briarlow Bin Winning

Post Grad Dog or Bitch

1st Pabiaga’s Easy Feeling cum Claychalk. 7 years old dog with a balanced head, depth of brisket, big ribs, enough bone and tight, round feet. Good curl to his coat. He’s not a big one but very sound on the move using his hocks to drive him forward.

2nd Silvestre of the Marjohrita avec Briarlow. Longer in body than ideal and needs to develop some rib but he is strong boned, straight in front, is level in back and moderately angled behind. He was moving rather close behind today.

Open Dog or Bitch

1st Chanderhill Alfredo JW CJW 19. 5 years old dog of quality. I liked him for size and balance and his taut fit body. He has big ribs, a big bum and very well muscled thighs. Handsome head of good proportions, oval eyes set slightly obliquely, well set ears and a short strong neck. Such a true mover on the out and back and holds his shape in profile.

2nd Janamorio Northern Arlo. 3 years old dog of superb breed type. He has great angulation, a good forechest and depth of brisket. Well proportioned head with such a kind expression in his oval eyes. He is very eye catching in his rustic coat but today he couldn’t match the winner in movement.
