1. ARROWBIEN DREAM WEAVER (Messrs. K. Arrowsmith & K. Vorderstrasse) Very attractive blenheim. The body was set off with a nice lay back of shoulders, well-turned stifles, nice spring of rib, lovely side gait. A bit too much coat for me, but I guess that’s the style today.
2. PAMEDNA JACQUES (Mr. A Fox-Shone & Mrs. M. Fox-Shone) Another nice young dog. Good movement like the profile as he moved around the ring. Lovely head with nice dark eyes, and good color.
1. CH. ELLEMICH AMERICAN EXPRESS (Mrs. M. Chapman & Miss. T. Ireland) A super young dog. Beautifully presented. If I didn’t know better I would certainly think he is one of Erica’s young dogs. He is very much Orchardhill style. A mature body, silky nice coat, dark eyes, good pigment. He moves around the ring with confidence. With his wonderful reach and drive he was one of my favorites today.
2. LLAPSTTAM’S SECRET SEVEN JW (Mr. M. Spall & Mr. M. Clark) Another handsome dog from this kennel. I like his shape and size, beautiful coat and color, big dark eyes .I would like to see him move out a bit more.

2. LOCHBUIE CARTOON (Mrs. D. Maclaine) I was not sure what I thought about this blenheim. He is a bigger dog and he had what appears to be a curly coat or not well groomed. He had large dark eyes, a pleasant expression and he moved nicely. I don’t think this was his day!
