My thanks to the officers & committee for their hospitality. I was pleased with my entry, there was a nice atmosphere with some quality dogs to judge.

Pleased to see my BOB go on to BIS & my BP to RBPIS.

MPD (3) 1 Roberts' Swansford Kestador, attractive red baby with compact well balanced body. Good head carriage, nice shaped eye, excellent front assembly, good keel & ribbing, level topline, well bent stifles, moved true fore & aft, lovely coat & condition, super puppy, should do really well. BP, pleased he went on to RBPIS; 2 Callow's Garthorne Game Ove, promising red, just a little raw at present but I think he has great potential. Masculine head, good length of neck & back, prominent forechest, ribs carried well back, level topline, moved well off sound quarters; 3 Burley's Bronia Master Peeps at Arbennik. PD (4,2a) 1 Hendrey, Cooper & Steadman's Bronia Mr Macgregor, lovely type, very exhuberant puppy who kept his handler busy. Balanced outline, well placed shouldes, tight elbows, neat front, good ribbing, well turned stifles, true free movement, a very promising chappy with a happy temperament; 2 Duchesne's Darsoms Zifi of Scandell, masculine boy, super forehand, good depth of keel & ribbing, long & low but sufficient ground clearance, this lad his quality & moved soundly, just preferred the verve of 1. JD (1) 1 Hughes' Dachsarah Roustabout, b/t boy in gleaming condition, long lean head, dark eye, good forechest & ribbing, moved well in front, a little narrow behind, bit on the tall side, nicely handled. PGD (4,1) 1 Metcalfe-Bilgin's Metadale Maluda, nicely balanced, reachy neck, good prosternum, well ribbed, firm level topline, good hind angulation, well presented, good coat, moved soundly; 2 Duchesne's Bronia Priam of Scandell, very similar to 1 in many ways, nice sound front with tight elbows, ribbing carried back, level topline, good length, preferred hind angulation of 1, well handled & presented; 3 Cook & Rhodes' Bournder Regency Malachite. LD (6) 1 Duchesne's Darsoms Zane of Scandell, have liked this boy before, perhaps his head is a little strong but the rest of him is lovely go go over. Good neck, well placed shoulders, tight elbows, neat front & feet, good depth of rib & length to balance, level topline, well bent stifles, he stands true without sinking, moved soundly; 2 Pankhurst's Marshwick Black Boots, lovely b/t, close up to 1. Slightly smaller but has many qualities, good head shape, nice eye, long neck, sound front assembly, good bend of stifle, has a tendency to drop on his quarters when stacked but levels out on the move & drives off well, nicely balanced; 3 Roberts' Swansford Warrador. OD (7,1) Good class. 1 Mitchell's Ch Bronia Mr Pepys, loved this boy, just the right size, super head & expression, good reach of neck & depth of body, sloping shoulders, good length of upper arm, tight elbows, sound neat front, level topline, well turned stifles, low hocks, in excellent coat & condition, lovely outline both stacked & on the move. He has great freedom of movement & very proud head carriage, a real showman, a joy to watch, well deserved CC & BOB, pleased to see him go BIS; 2 Geeson's Abydachs Kicks Up A Storm, another quality dog, lovely to go over, masculine all through, excellent forehand, prosternum, front & feet, long deep ribcage, sufficient ground clearance, firm topline, sound quarters, in super coat, stylish mover covering the ground, well handled & presented. RCC; 3 Johnson's Africandawns Rumour Rumble. V (3,1) 1 Rees' Phaeland North Light at Aquarelle, grand old chap of 10 years, still moving very enthusiastically & responding to his handler well. He still has sound action & is a credit to his owner for his condition, he loved his sausage; 2 Alford & Worth's Swansford Pukkador at Deeseedax, nice type with good topline & outline stacked. In good coat, well handled, not moving with quite the verve of 1.

MPB (2) 1 Metcalfe-Bilgin's Metadale Moment Of Pleasure, pretty baby, very feminine, sweet head, correct eye shape, neat forehand, tight elbows, good length of back, with excellent ribbing, low to ground, level topline, moved happily, sound all through; 2 Eve's Sundayshill Anastasia, nice head shape, good eye & ear placement, sound front with correctly fitting elbows, ribs carried back, firm topline, preferred the hind angulation & movement of 1. PB (3,1) 1 Mitchell's Bronia Miss Moppet, super young lady oozing quality, correct head, eye & ear placement, excellent front assembly, reachy neck, long & low but sufficient ground clearance, well balanced outline, good turn of stifle, low hocks, extended well on the move, true fore & aft, in lovely coat & condition. BPB; 2 Johnson's Darsoms Zeony with Africandawns, another attractive girl with gorgeous head & expression, long neck, good shoulder placement, tight elbows, well ribbed, good sternum & keel, sound quarters, topline could be firmer, preferred movement of 1.

RCC; 2 Clarke's Teckalhaus Octopussy, attractive lady with good head shape & lovely expression, reachy neck, good shoulders, keel & ribbing, neat front, sound quarters, good depth all through, moved well, nicely handled; 3 Burley's Bronia Diorella.
