I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge at this well run show & my excellent stewards for their support. 

Puppy (1, 0)

1. Walker’s Dexbenella It’s Only Me- 8 ½ mths, promising young man who showed with confidence. Balanced, he is well developed for age, masculine head with a pleasing expression, good neck flows into well angulated shoulders , good topline and strong quarters. Still needs to firm up a little but moves well for age carrying himself well. BP & delighted to hear he was BPIS – Congratulations!

1. Dunsdon’s Seaspring Wind of Change – bitch with everything in proportion , balanced feminine head , good length of neck , well sprung ribs & short coupled, adequate rear angulation with well let down hocks. In good coat with a lovely texture. Moved out well, true coming & going with good drive .

2. Proctor’s Petranella Perfick Bliss – mature 3yr old bitch with an intelligent expression, well bodied with correct bone , good length of neck , sufficient angulation fore & aft, good spring of rib; I would just like her to be a fraction shorter in back.
