Minor puppy bitch   4

1st- Mrs Pat M, J.L & E.J Brooker.( Telforth Sweet Dreams to Corisian)

This puppy I have been watching for a while, as her name suggests she is a real dream. Lovely head, correct stop, almond eyes. Her ears were always on top giving her the sweetest of expressions, excellent reach of neck, good lay of shoulder level, topline good, turn of stifle with neat hocks. She has good length of tail that never stopped wagging beautiful shape. Her movement was very good for one so young, presentation was exceptional from this kennel as was her handling in my opinion. She is bound top honors I was pleased to award her R.C.C and best puppy bitch. She then went on to win best puppy in show which was well deserved and awarded by the referee.

This bitch was a sable and white bigger type of bitch to the 1st place bitch. Nice wedge head, almond eyes well placed, ears good, length of neck level, topline good, turn of stifle, neat hocks, movement was good. She must also have excellent future ahead of her.
