Coton De Tulear

Although type varied somewhat I thought the quality was good in this entry.

Veteran D. (1 abs)

Puppy D (1)

1. Cotonecosse King of The Road for Cotonalba (Mr J K Murdoch)

Masc puppy who is very promising. Liked his proportions. Well balanced head, super pigment. Dark eyes. Enough neck. Quite a good front. Good width to his chest . Well ribbed. Slight arch to loin and correct tail set and carriage. Parallel going away. BP on better tail carriage

His body proportions are correct. Well textured coat. Masc head of good balance. Dark eye and pigment. Medium neck. Could have a little more width between his forelegs. Get ribbed back. Slight arch to topline and well set tail, although he carries it to one side. Super rear, and goes away so well. RBD

Plenty of this v well made d, whose proportions are correct. Excellent coat texture. Masc head, nose has lost pigment. Lengthy neck. Would like a straighter front. Well ribbed. Correct topline, tail set and carriage. Well made rear and so v well muscled. Accurate on the move.

Promising pup. Liked her overall proportions. Fem head with dark pigment. Good balance of muzzle and skull. Enough neck. Could have a better layback of shoulder. Well sprung ribs. Short loin.
