Critique: Hartley....Gerian Sunmaker of Roanburn.......Here again, is a dog that really has to be handled to be appreciated, certainly not a glamour boy, but has quality in abundance, was presented in pristine order. He has a lovely head piece, with two lovely placed and shaped dark eyes, nicely rounded in foreface, good under jaw and with his neat ears set right on top gave a most sweet expression without being feminine. Good reach of neck and length of body, balanced all over, good quarters, neat feet enabled him to move with purpose and drive, in the challenge he just pulled out all the stops and I had no hesitation in awarding him the CC, my Co Judge and I could not agree for BOB and so Mrs Arch, who was referee was called upon, and I was delighted when she awarded him BOB and later RES BES IN SHOW. Well done. Was told after that this was his third and crowning CC, which also made it all the more special.

Now living back with his breeder Gee McEntee at Gerian
