Dog CC & BOB Chapman-King's Inzievar Gold Issue
Reserve Dog CC Webber's Lilyphanie Great Showman
Bitch CC Rolland's Ch. Dandiroyal Cotswold Dream
Reserve Bitch CC Rolland's Dandiroyal Cream Tea
Best Puppy Denham's Dentgate Mulberry Silk

Junior Dog 1st: Webber's Lilyphanie Great Showman
Mustard, good masculine head, dark eye, nice skull, very alert, sound in body, free moving.

Novice Dog 2nd: Gould's Kebroyd Blaeberry
On the day I was unable to assess the movement of this dog. I can only hope that this in time will improve.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Riach's Puddockswell Billy Bathgate
Mustard, very nice head, kind eye with well set ears, a good topline, sound front and rear movement to win this class. Res CC.
2nd: Deacon's Cassencarrie Of Course
Nice expression, would like a little more neck, good body, topline not held on the move and somewhat reluctant which cost him the class.
3rd: Pettit's Cofgodas Wolf River

Limit Dog 1st: Chapman-King's Inzievar Gold Issue
Mustard male, the most masculine of appearances with a haunting appearance, his eyes following whatever is going on. What, what a top knot. Lovely thin leathers, laid well at the side of his head, good strong neck, front and rear, sound topline, spot on jacket prepared to perfection, moved with a strut to take the CC and BOB, also shortlisted in the Group.
2nd: Stanley's Sokrovische Gardariki Aristokrat at Waffelin
A nice looking dog with a good head and bite, front and rear sound, wasn’t too happy with his tail, movement between handler and dog could improve.

Open Dog 1st: Deacon & Hill's Ch./Am GCh. Pennywise On The Road Again
Salt and pepper, nice enough head, would prefer a little more underjaw and a shade more skull, front/rear disappointing, quality jacket, somewhat lacking in raise over the rump and somewhat unhappy on the move.
2nd: Denham's Dentgate Mulberry
Salt and pepper, nice balanced head, nice ear set, good in neck and shoulders, good rib and general outline, tail carried well. Again, somewhat reluctant to move which cost him this class.
3rd: Booth's Ch. Borderstone Kingman for Lannia
Res: Drake's Tollcross Tartan Tavish

Puppy Bitch 1st: Denham's Dentgate Mulberry Silk
Salt and pepper, very sweet baby, good head balance, sound neck and shoulders, lovely outline for age, moved out well, exceptionally good front.
2nd: Watson's Hainingloch Unum Solum
Mustard, again a very pretty youngster with all the essentials, unfortunately her handler did tend to let her down, back to training classes.
3rd: Miller's Dryfevalley Caerlaverock
Res: Allan's Cloverwood Saffron avec Clairmorin

Junior Bitch 1st: Wilson's Morawelon Cader Idris
Salt and pepper, very nice dark eye, good muzzle and mouth, good body shape, good bone, moved out.
2nd: Stanley's Dariant Clementina at Waffelin
Mustard, somewhat small head but well in balance with the rest of the body, well held topline on the move.
3rd: Allan's Cloverwood Saffron avec Clairmorin

Novice Bitch 1st: Gould's Gheallaidh Huckberry Poesy
Mustard, generally needs to tighten up in most areas. On the move was sound with a good sound jacket, just in need of a little more work.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Watson's Alltallach Early Snow Drop at Hainingloch
Salt and pepper, lovely headpiece, good neck and front and rear, nice rib, well covered rump, low tail set, moved freely.
2nd: Allenby's Wilmit Mildred Potter for Diddimont
Mustard, sound all round, just not moving as well as first. I loved the coat colour.
3rd: Stanley's Sokrovische Gardariki Astory at Waffelin
Res: Poole's Reidswire Border Bluebell
VHC: Percy's Alastriona Jeanie Deans

Limit Bitch 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Cream Tea
Mustard, very pleasing, just loved her body shape, sweet expression with lovely thin leathers, moved very soundly holding topline to take the Res CC.
2nd: Sleight's Mishahda Where It All Began
Salt and pepper, unfortunately this Dandie was carrying too much weight but was moving adequately to take second place. This dog is not the only dog which has not covered the ground today.
3rd: Poole's Reidswire Border Bluebell

Open Bitch 1st: Rolland's Ch. Dandiroyal Cotswold Dream
Salt and pepper, super feminine bitch, again a head you must look at to appreciate, good long neck, front and rear, good topline spot on, in super condition, moved so freely. BCC.
2nd: Stanley's Honey Hope ze Zihelske Zahrady at Waffelin
Mustard, sweet head, dark eye and good mouth, not the muzzle of first, not carrying her topline on the move, presented well and moved satisfactorily.
