Class 2120 PGD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5877 HALL, Mrs Nicola Shai Du Pre De La Sommerau At Vonandraste (Imp FRA) a 2-year-old breed typical young male of attractive profile and appearance. He has a refined head with dark eyes and good-sized erect ears which all together produces an alert, attentive expression; true in front though a bit upright. Good length firm body but prefer more depth of chest. Moderately angled hindquarters. Tended to be too short stepping on the move and not covering the ground.

Class 2121 LD (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5890 YABSLEY, Mrs Bettina Domburg New Demand an elegant 2¾-year-old strikingly handsome young male. He has a good-looking, breed typical head with an alert, responsive expression. Impressive quality in overall body with well-defined side profile and desirable top line. Overall, he is all in proportions and balance; pleasing coat and condition. He is of the style, make and shape I like. Moved with an active true gait covering the ground with ease which I preferred to 2nd. My Dog CC and Best of Breed Winner.

2nd: 5868 ARKLEY, Mrs M Domburg On My Mind a 4-year-old sturdy male having a more substantial appearance than 1st. He is in coat and pleasing in appearance with an attractive head shape and expression. Strong in muzzle, would prefer a more correct bite.  Although of pleasing appearance, he is slightly longer in body and is carrying more body substance than 1st and was less lively and close hocked on the move.                                                                         3rd: 5881 HODGSON, Mr K Domburg It's Leclerc

Class 2122 OD (4 Entries) Abs: 3

1st: 5880 HODGSON, Mr K Ch Domburg Verstappen Can For Ddalrus a 3½-year-old substantial male who in side profile looks to lack elegance and acceptable proportions. Masculine look to head but, for me, was not refined or of good proportions. True front, but lacked enough fore-chest and depth of chest. Pleasing in top-line, and moderate in hindquarters. Front needs to settle on the move. One who has had better days.

Class 2125 JB (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5882 LESTER & SMITH, Mrs & Miss L & S Domburg Because It's Me a very smart 17-month-old striking young quality bitch who has an attractive head and intelligent, alert expression. True front, well-made body and strong nicely angled hindquarters; firm, elegant top-line. Presents a very ‘together’ unexaggerated appearance. Moved with an active, true ground covering action. My Bitch CC winner.

Class 2126 PGB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5873 DAVIES, Miss J Ambrajai Eternal Dreams a 2-year-old shapely young bitch of pleasing overall profile and breed typical appearance. She has an attractive head and expression; true, well-made in front, good length firm body and nicely angled hindquarters. A little reticent to begin with but when settled she moved with a positive fluid action.

2nd: 5871 BYCROFT, Mrs G A & BYCROFT, Mr J Niavana Raw Silk a 20-month-old young bitch of pleasing side profile shape. Needs to body up and mature. Attractive head both in shape and proportions. Alert expression. True front, satisfying in basic body structure and moderate hindquarters. Movement could be freer and easier in action.

Class 2128 OB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5889 WRAIGHT, Mrs Bonita Domburg My Oh My Denhalka a 4-year-old a mature breed typical bitch who has a shapely, balanced and pleasing proportions in body. Attractive head with an attentive, alert expression. She has a true front, pleasing body and moderately angled hindquarters. Movement was true but would like her to cover more ground. Reserve Bitch CC.

2nd: 5870 BYCROFT, Mrs G A & BYCROFT, Mr J Niavana Odyssey a mature 5-year-old who has a very pleasing standing side profile. She is pleasing to go over and is well-made in front, body and hindquarters. Let herself down on the move.
