Open Bitch
1 Humphreys Brilyn Kiss at Midnite to Jamesfair - Tri - This bitch I have admired and liked since I saw her as a puppy, but I have never handled her until today. She did not disappoint me in any way, even though a veteran, she was up for it today. Super head, muzzle and skull of equal planes, slight stop, conical from front and lovely wedge in profile. Sweet eye for a tri, so hard to get, well placed ears, used well, nice neck and shoulders, round bone, not coarse at all, near feet, well angulated quarters, showing clean hocks as she moved away, front movement good. Held her topline and covered all the ring. Excellent! I was pleased to award her the CC, she then went on to BOB, BV and to crown the day BIS.

2 Fox's Amalie Lynmead Honey Honey for Alanita - Nice head, eye, ears all used well giving sweet expression of good shape. Shoulders and quarters good, neat feet, moved well, and handled well, just was not as sweet as my winner, though close RCC

**edits

Maiden Bitch - Fridens Magic Moments for Rosschell (Imp Rus) NAF TAF - apologies to Ms Davis, critique applies, but she was in fact a tri (not sable)

Mid Limit Bitch - Apologies to Mrs Grindley for incorrect colour and critique. She was in fact a feminine sable, very sweet eye set nicely, used ears well, lovely neck and shoulders, nice bone, neat feet and good front and quarters, moved soundly round the ring, showed well.
