I would like to thank the SDC committee for supporting me and having me at their show, I enjoyed my appointment and the hospitality. Many thanks to the exhibitors for their entries had some lovely quality dogs to go over, temperaments were sound but my only concern were the number of incorrect bites which affected my placings. MPD (4) 1 Armstrong’s Lauralee Golden Boots. 8mths old red of nice quality. Good strong head & dark almond shaped eyes. Need to carry less weight as looked quite loaded over his shoulders, his shoulders need to tighten & his front still to develop. Well sprung ribbing carried back, good rounded hind quarters. Needs to settle on the move. 2 Walkley’s Churchoak Red Adair. Another Red, quite elegant & had better shoulders than winner but needs to settle. Has time on his side, still a nice dog to go over. 3 Cooper & Kerry’s Sontag Sir Cumfrance of Kireton. PD (1) 1 Burke’s & Manston’s Bonavoir the Waxies Dargle. 10mths old red looked a bit rangy compared to previous class. Nice head and dark eyes, good reach of neck.
