Numerically a good entry, especially in bitches where the quality was deeper.

However I was saddened by the poor body condition of more than a few exhibits, often those at the top of the size & weight scale, & often these dogs lacked coat condition also. A couple of them were pot bellied to give them a temporary roundness. Add to this the dirty teeth of too many dogs & some smelling of urine, & these made it a somewhat disappointing morning.

I had plenty of exhibits within the weight in excellent condition & some a couple of ounces over, which doesn’t both me.

Many thanks to my stewards.

LD 1 Metadale Leandros at Hertsmerry, 2 years old, best for type in the class, & in excellent body condition & scoring in chest & front action.

BP; 2 Ralines Royal Reggata at Leveliss, 11 months, looked my winner at first glance as she has lovely type & proportions with good forehand assembly.
