POST GRADUATE DOG (1/1)
1st: Grundy & Grundy HITORIKKO GO HAJIMARI UNDER KYUUTEN (IMP POL) Brindle dog showing correct Urajiro markings. Good coat texture. Lovely head with correct eye and ears. Correct bite. A little shorter in back than some. Correct size with good feet. Correct tail set & carriage. Moved well in profile but could have moved truer fore & aft.
OPEN DOG (3/3)
1st: Duffield & Duffield HASAKI TEAM NOBU MEIHO (IMP SERB) 1st & 2nd Similar type dogs of good size & build. Both have good body proportions good head carriage. Both have red coats of correct texture and with typical markings. Both have good tail set & carriage and both have good feet. I preferred the head balance of 1 which is why I placed them the way I did. Front movement could have been tighter on both, and both had similar close movement behind. Best Dog.
2nd: Horrobin DAIMARY CHARADON (IMP SERB) Reserve Best Dog
3rd: Bennett & Thompson SEIJITSU AMAFUMI GO TSOYU

POST GRADUATE BITCH (3/3)

Beautiful head & expression with correct eye & ears, and good bite. Well carried. Correct shape & size, good coat texture, well set & carried tail. Correct feet. She was the best mover on the day, in profile and also fore & aft, but won on her overall quality, not just construction. Best Bitch & BOB
2nd: Mudrova MEGAPOLIS STYLE KOMAKHIME MAMORIKENSHA (IMP RUS) Red bitch with lovely head and body of correct shape & size. Good coat texture. Good tail set & carriage, correct feet. Her front and rear could be tighter, and her movement let her down.
