1st Butler Sh Ch Toberworry Breaking Dawn at Jenella’s

My first time judging the breed and I am presented with this super Sh Ch bitch just rising 4 years. She has a lovely femine head with dark eye giving an intelligent expression. She makes a nice shape when stacked, muscular neck into well laid shoulders, straight front with neat feet. Chest is deep, topline is level, she has good rear quarters which are muscular. She moved well in profile but a tad close at the back. BOB

Another lovely male, this liver dog at just 18months just lacked the maturity and finish of the winner today.

He moved out well but was just a bit loose in front.
