Junior 1st Walpole’s Lovenjoel Ice Cool. 11 Month old dog who is a strong lad with good bone and size. Lovely head and dark eye giving a soft expression. Good body and shape for age, just needs to fill out. Best angulation of the class. Pushed hard for BOB but just needs to mature. RBOB, BP
Post Graduate 1st Hawkin’s Courtdown Devonshire Dawn over Aislingwood. 2 year old bitch with a beautiful, feminie head, would just prefer slightly shorter muzzle. Good angulation front and rear and correct level topline which she held well on the stand and move. Nice feet and moved well. BOB
Graduate 1st Whybrow’s Unosta Conquest. Still a young lad who will take time to mature. Sweet head and expression, good angulation and moved well with reach and drive. His coat finished the picture. RBOB
Post Graduate 1st Whybrows Crunchcroft Jorja at Unosta. Lovely bitch overall but carrying too much weight on the day. Straight front although a little wide. Moved correctly with good tail carriage.

Spanish Water Dogs
Junior 1st Pridemore’s Valentisimos Pacopili at Bellmoria. An 8 month old bitch who took my eye as she walked in the ring. Nice shape to her body and head, correct coat and moved with reach and drive and so together for such a young lady. RBOB, BP
Post Graduate 1st Long’s Prizelands Enqrique at Newmoorhill. 2 year old male with a good head. Moved OK. In good condition with correct coat.
Open 1st Grief’s Hollutrix Zula of Goldfly. An 8 year old bitch who doesn’t at all look her age. Nicely put together with correct construction. Beautiful head and neck, built on good shoulders. Correct feet. Moved out well with good reach and drive. Pleased to award BOB.
