Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger

Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis

Tinsley's Cloverwood Sparkling Blue


Junior Dog 1st: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger
17 months mustard, big expressive eye, pleasingly set, good in skull, strong jaw. A touch long in foreface. Has neck and decent shoulders, ribs are deep and carried well back, front legs are short and strong, with hind a touch longer coupled with developed loin to give the correct topline, goes with positive action out and back with supple side gait, good body and coat give finish. RBD.
2nd: Milliner's Xenon z Roxburku Sun at Millerim
Great personality, strong foreface and width of underjaw, with appealing expression, long back with correct loin and croup allowing good set-on. Not in as good coat as winner or just the action on the move.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Edwards's Cloverwood Midnight Blue
Pepper, head is masculine with broad skull, correct big well set eye, has domed forehead and shorter strong muzzle with good underjaw, quality bone, well padded round feet, good proportions with depth and flexibility in body. Just not as settled in movement to take him further. Hard crisp coat with silky hair on skull.
2nd: Hughes's Maganbar Magic Moment
Happy chap with big nose and good foreface, has reach in neck. Just not the balance of leg to depth of 1. Strong loin giving correct topline for the breed. Just not going as well as winner.

Open Dog 1st: Tinsley's Ch. Cloverwood Royal George
Mustard, this chap oozes quality, has the strength, size with cleanness and balance of head to give the outlook that makes one smile, so in keeping with this delightful breed. His silky coat on his broad skull adds to this. The head is held by his strong clean neck, which fits smoothly through his well-laid shoulder. Forelegs are short, well boned, and right down to his round well padded feet, has depth of chest, well sprung ribs, topline rises to developed loin, good width of muscular quarters, coat is put down to perfection, which is to be expected by his expert handlers, footfall is correct with supple ease of action from any angle. A star performer who easily took BD & BOB. An asset to the breed.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Hughes's Maganbar Apple Blossom
Mustard, feminine with depth, body and substance. Pleasing neck flowing through correct topline, decent presentation. Top coat a touch soft. Went well.
2nd: Hamilton's Maganbar Amber Mist over Margham
Strength in muzzle and big nose, attentive and of happy disposition. Just not as clean over shoulders and therefore lacks a little reach in front action.

Open Bitch 1st: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis
Mustard, so well balanced and presented a correct shapely outline with balance throughout, attractive head with strength in skull, clean with good earset and held right, has length of body with correct foreleg, back rises to loin which is muscular with slight fall at croup, allows good tailset and carriage, goes with true action coming and going and holds herself on side action, harsh but not wiry coat. BB.
2nd: Tinsley's Cloverwood Sparkling Blue
Pepper, good bitch with classic head and ear, has beautiful forehand and bone with leg of correct proportion so she can really reach in front, good length and width and power in quarters, coat is silky on the skull with crisp hard top coat. She seemed to be affected by the intense cold (but so was I!) which just spoilt her outline on the move, but her action could not be faulted so deserved the RBB.
