2nd Forsey & Louch’s Libertia Son of Anarchy
Post Graduate (2,1a)
1st Durie’s Leyshen Lily’s Innocence. Just 11 months but this lovely young lady is full of promise. Presents a lovely picture on the stand with a good outline, long, lean feminine head with a lovely dark eye. Nice neck to well laid shoulders and return of upper arm. Good bone and lovey feet. I liked her depth throughout and good rear angles. A true steady graceful mover for one so young. Although standing alone deserved her awards. BOB and BP, then later Group 4 and Puppy Group 2.
Special Yearling (5,0a)
1st Vick’s Minaelea Taylored to You. Just 12 months this young bitch headed up a nice class. Good overall shape and I particularly liked her head, feminine yet with strength and good proportions. Super front assembly with good bone although I would prefer neater feet. Lovely forechest and good depth to chest and loin. Super rear, well muscled and best of movers. RBOB.
2nd Brooks’ Saintlythans Polly Garter at Frizlbach. Just 10 months and another lovely feminine bitch. Super head with neck and shoulders, good bone, lovely pasterns and neat feet. Good body shape leading to a correctly angled rear. So tidy on the move. One with a bright future. BP.

1st Fowell’s Dortmund Heatwave from Cheroho. 2yr B. Pleasing head and eye, nice neck and well made front with good bone but feet could be tighter. Nice rear angles and the best mover of the two this class although I would have liked a little less length in body.
2nd Hopgood’s Saintlythans Sea Breeze
1st Smith’s Auberon Viktor Krum. 3 1/2 yr. D. What a lovely strong masculine old-fashioned dog. Broad in skull with good ears and eyes, strength of muzzle, short strong neck to well made front with the good strong bone and nice feet although could be better in front pastern. Deep chest and loin, with good rear angles. Well muscled all over. Powerful steady mover who improved the more he moved. BOB.

2nd Morris’ Zaltana Cwnhapus Tegan
3rd Wickers’ Skimarque Sent From Heaven to Vukasin. 10mth B. What a lovely baby giving way to more mature dogs today but would easily have won a puppy class.

3rd Date’s Bluepoint Sunfire
Res Robberts’ Gwyngala Glitz N Glamor
– 11 Years (5,0)
1st Molly Barber handling an American Cocker Spaniel. A most proficient, polite, young handler who stacks her dog well. Very good table work with clear teeth and attentive to the dog. Patterns could be a little tidier with the up and down in front of the judge but she did move at the correct speed
2nd Owen Toublic handling and English Springer Spaniel. A promising young man. Good table work but needs to practice standing rear end better so as not to undertuck this dog. Pattern work needs tidying but he moved with dog at the correct speed and I particularly liked the way to encourage dog.
3rd Phoebe Toublic. handling and English Springer Spaniel. Sister to second place but not at her best today, struggled to get the dog stood and not as tidy on the patterns as I know she can do
Res Dylan Brian
VHC Charlie Seymour
12 – 16 Years (5,2)
Paige Hawker handling a Rottweiler. Stood out in this
class. Stood the dog beautifully and showed clean teeth. Always
attentive to help the dog was standing. The only one to look where she
was going and moves the dog at the correct speed and on a line in front
of the judge. A lovely handler. BJH
2nd Catherine Kesson handling a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. This young lady had a difficult time coping with her own hand injury and a dog that was not being co-opted but I loved her tenacity. She persevered in a calm manner with good use of the voice and rewards. Tidy pattern work.
