1. Richardson’s Niedersachen’s Pride Over Night Sensation at Storinblu (imp DEU). Very promising and confident young man of 9 months, strong muzzle and good bite, liked his head and expression, lovely eye and good pigment, good length of neck and nicely angulated fore and rear, good ribcage and length, short loin, he moved out well covering the ground well, coat developing nicely, think he has a good future ahead, BPD & BPIS.

Well presented dog of 20 months, in immaculate condition, masculine head and expression, good pigment, good length of neck into a well set shoulder, deep chest and well ribbed back, looked a nice shape standing and moving, would just like him a little tidier in the rear going away, lovely movement in profile, coat was harsh and of good quality, RBD.

PB 1(0)

1. Petrutyte’s Going With The Flow. Raw puppy of 9 months, feminine head and expression although I would like a stronger muzzle and underjaw, good neck with decent angulation fore and rear, a little longer in body than I would like but she moved out ok and her coat is developing well, BPB & RBPIS.

PGB 3(2)

1. McIntosh’s Blairdon A Wee Deoch An Doris. 21 months old and very unsettled today, she unfortunately did not want to be in the ring, feminine head and expression, good length of neck and lay of shoulder, well ribbed but loin could be a little shorter, she was really pulling to be out of ring so it was quite hard to assess her movement, she had a harsh coat of good quality.

Beautifully presented bitch of 4 years, lovely feminine head with strong muzzle and appealing expression, a really nice shape standing, good length of neck with well angulated front and rear, good forechest, depth and shape of rib, short loin, good top-line and she was well muscled all through, she moved out with a typical gait and covered the ground well in profile, steady and accurate coming and going, in beautiful coat of harsh texture, delighted to award her BB & BIS.

2. Bell’s Ch. Shaggybo Spectacular Rival with Soulbobs. Another lovely bitch of 3 years who I also liked very much, feminine head with endearing expression, good length of neck leading into a lovely front assembly, good bone, correctly ribbed with muscular loin, she was the correct shape standing and she moved out well covering the ground with a good stride, she was presented in beautiful order and had a coat of excellent quality, RBB & RBIS.
