1st Walker’s Wroxham Merry Maid. 4yr young lady looking lovely today. Nice to see her with some coat. Beautiful head, lovely shape and soft expression. Super body shape with excellent angles front and rear. Lovely shoulders and depth of chest. A pleasure to watch on the move, true front and rear, then so easy and free striding in profile. Thoroughly deserving of BB then in the challenge kept on showing where the dog was starting to flag. Pleased to give her BOB then watch her represent the breed so well in the group ring.

2ndTong’s Kellizlot Star Attraction 6yrs now. Another one I judged as a puppy, liked her then and still do. Very good overall shape, nice head although personally I would prefer a slightly shorter muzzle.  Good shoulders, and rear angles. In good coat of good colour.  Moved true front & rear and free in profile. RBB
