Always a lovely breed to judge and after watching the breed change and grow since coming off the Imported Register I am so please they are getting CC’s and I hope to be part of their journey in the years to come.

1st Williams’ Daniella Vom Thyrowberg To Gladsheim (Imp Ger) ShCM VW. It appears that this B does not believe she is 11yrs old. Full of breed type and showmanship. Super shape and size, excels in head and body. Lovely dark eyes and correct ear feathering and black ‘ear rings’. So well made, with well laid shoulders, good forechest and correct spring of rib. A well muscled moderate rear completes the picture. Best mover and in good coat with gorgeous tail feathering. RBB & BVIB
2nd Guy’s Cirtap's Prinses Bynton Ida Rose MK (Imp Swe) (AR3). 9yr B and another of good shape and type. Super head with dark eyes. Well made forequarters with lovely forechest & straight front. Deep ribs, well sprung under a level topline. Good rear angles and another super mover.

1st Wallis’ Molly Gladsheim Veritas. My notes on this 2yr old start “WOW, what a super youngster”. Lovely stamp. Spot on for size and shape. Correct head, masculine with dark eyes and dark pigment. Lovely ear feathering and black ‘ear rings’. Excels in forequarters with well laid shoulders and return of upper arm giving good forechest. Level back over deep well sprung ribs through a firm loin to a moderately angled, well muscled rear. Super mover, true with good reach and drive. BD & BOB
2nd Suiter’s Genetika Rumpelstiltskin. 6yr D of good type. Lovely to go over with well made forequarters with well laid shoulders and good forechest. Deep chest & a level back to a moderate rear. Moved well in profile, not as true fore and aft and the winner.

1st Dunford’s Millhanger Victoria Plumb. 4yr old and what a sweetie. Pretty B with a sweet head, dark eyes and lovely fringing. Well laid shoulders but lacks forechest. Good depth of chest and a level topline to a moderate rear. Would benefit from a little more length to body. Moved well, true fore and aft.
OB (3 Entries) Abs: 0
1st Johnson’s Valleyrise Illustration. A 6yr old that embodies the breed standard. True to type, correct size and shape. Feminine head of correct shape and proportions with dark eyes and lovely ears. Super forequarters with well laid shoulders and return of upper arm with good forechest and straight front. Level topline, well sprung ribs of good depth, super tail set and carriage. Excels on the move. Very tough decision in the challenge for BOB but the dog just has a little more presence. BB
2nd Suiter’s & Cargill Genetika Wake Up Aurora. A lovely 6yr B, slightly shorter in foreface than the winner but with dark eyes and good ears. well laid shoulders and return of upper arm but not the forechest of 1.
