DOGS
Minor Puppy Dog 1
Hopewells Marjalu Top Mark
B/M of 8 months, although he stood alone, he was still well worthy of his first place. he is well broken and a clear blue, lovely head pattern, with a dark well placed eye and a good ear carriage. Good lengh of neck, correct length of back to height, movement needs to settle, but he is only a baby and it should come. Well presented.

Puppy 4
1. Forts Shulune Mines a Double
Just out of minor puppy, this nine and a half month old was an easy winner in this class. Lovely clean wedge shaped head, nice dark sweet eye, neat ears carried well on head. Good strong arched neck and correct shoulder angulation and spring of rib. Coat of a good texture and presented very well. Sound confident mover.

2. Geddes Ingledene Spirit of Legend
Considering some of the lovely dogs this kennel has shown in the past, I was disappointed with this dog. I found his head very strong and not clean, even though his head and ears had been heavily stripped out, which I didn't think enhanced his expression. Quite a reachy neck and length of back was correct for height, owner moved him at a fair rate, but couldn't say he drives with any power when moving.

3. Blakes Corydon Victor Ludorum

Junior Dog 4
1. Telfords Glenbowdene Shades of Gold
I have watched this dog over the past few months so it was nice to have the pleasure of going over him. His head is clean with a good stop, dark well placed eye, neat ears, nice flat skull, shows non stop. He has a lovely sweet expression, with a good length of neck and back, well boned, but not overdone, has a lovely overall balance and conformation, moves easily and effortlessly.

2. Hollinsheads Starlyn Napoleon Solo
S/W of 15 months with a very nice shape and make. He has a clean balanced head, good strong underjaw, nice dark eye, used ears well to show himself off. Correct front and good bone, nice short hocks, sound mover. Coat is just starting to blow but well presented.

Have watched this young B/M dog over the past few years, at the moment I think he is looking his best. He is a very masculine and workman like dog, but he still has elegance.

He has a really good arched neck, well boned straight front legs, nice tight feet, short strong hocks, head is clean with just the right amount of stop. Nice almond shaped eye and good ear placement. This dog puts everything into showing, good strong movement, very well presented. CC & BOB
