Good size, maybe a touch too low to ground. Changing his coat at the moment, but it is hard and tight fitting. Pleasing head, good neck, well bodied and short coupled, Super quarters and good behind.

Good size and proportions.
Elegant neck line and good depth and width of chest. Down on one front foot a
trifle. Well ribbed, super behind and beautifully muscled up. Keeps a firm
backline going around. Lovely body and coat condition too!
2nd: MACDONALD Bensarka Cosmopolitan
Heavier and not quite the muscle tone of above. A little over deep in chest, Good angulation in rear and he went well going away. Skin could be tighter and he is rather wrinkled over his shoulders.

Puppy Bitch (3)
1st: ARMSTRONG Lauralee Lush Lashes
Lovely size and correct bone for
size. Good length of head, elegant neck, needs to strengthen in topline a touch,
and her tail set is a little too high. Super mover both ways and good quarters.
2nd: ANDISON & PEEL Rijobeau Cookies And Cream
Heavier and lower to ground,
changing coat and has wrinkled legs. Good head and eyes. OK in front and moved
well going away. Very long too.

Junior Bitch (3)
1st:HUNT Carpaccio Cognac Diamond
CC & BOB, Super Chocolate of ideal size and proportions. Hard coat, tight fitting skin. Pleasing head and eyes for a chocolate. Well made front and rear and so sound, free and active moving. A lovely quality junior.
2nd: ANDISON & PEEL Rijobeau Caramel Crisp
Heavier sort, bigger all through. Feet rather flat and open…less weight would help her feet. Otherwise a good true mover in rear and went round ok. Bit 'Ploddy' in front.
Post Graduate (3)
1st: FURBER Dorysa Dolly Varden
Good Bitch, excellent size and
shape. Moving well all ways. Pleasing head and length of foreface. Neat,
smallish, high set ears. Correct slight arch over loin. Excellent body
2nd: DAVIES Hampdach Amathyst Undeg
Not the shoulder lay of winner,
although her upper arm slope is good. Elegant neckline. Hard topline. Could use
her rear more.
3rd: JONES Adnerbs Betty Boop
Limit Bitch (1)
1st: MACDONALD Bensarka Cheeky Vimto
I liked her size and bone, good
leg length and her head is good. Shoulders set too far up her neck, and a bit
short in upper arm, giving her a bulky look in front, Excellent body and topline.
Seems to have enough rear angulation and not too high in hocks, but she doesn’t
drive out in profile and hocks rather underneath her.
Open Bitch (2)
1st: HIGGINS Leveliss What She Said
Good Firm, hard coated bitch.
Liked her head, a mite light in eyes though. Good neck, sound true front, front
legs rather wrinkled, excellent body and rounded rear from behind. Moved well
2nd: BENNETT Hacienda Outrageous Fortune At Shardaroba (Imp)
Smaller, which I liked, has lovely dark eyes. Not so co-ordinated on the move and rear could be better muscled. Excellent body shape and elegant neckline. Moved a wee bit close coming towards
