1ST 3058 - Dajean Chocolate Charmer (Mrs S J Tomsett) raw 6 month baby but the most confident of the 3 in the class today. Head correctly shaped with keen expression. Neat shape with nicely arched neck, level back and well angulated rear. Moved out the best of all 3 with correct sound movement. Good harsh Chocolate & Tan jacket.
2ND 3064 - Dajean's Red Sun (Mrs S J Tomsett) on first look this puppy appealed slightly more to me than the winner for overall shape and balance but unfortunately he would not play ball today and didnít really want to walk on the floor. Lovely head with dark eyes and strong jaw. Lovely reach of neck, good front assembly, chest and rib nicely developed for age, super topline and strong short loin. Correct harsh jacket.
