Best Veteran Atkinson's Berdinbrook Golden Fleece

Veteran Dog 1st: Atkinson's Berdinbrook Golden Fleece
11 year old pepper with a good mouth and large teeth. Movement was difficult to assess as he hopped all around the ring.

Junior Dog 1st: Fox & Cox's MyDan'd Look What I Found at Puddockswell
Mature mustard who was carrying a bit too much condition on the day. Good bite and dark eye, correct ear set. Clean shoulder and good length. He moved a little close fore and aft.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Poole's Hawkesmill Merlon
Masculine well boned mustard who was over conditioned on the day. Dark eye and correct ear set. Well set shoulder and well ribbed, correct topline and set on. Moved ok.
2nd: Deegan's Deegandan Keeping Faith
Smaller mustard who was very nervous so movement was hard to assess. He has a good mouth and dark eye with plenty of rise to his skull. Shoulder and ribbing are correct as is his topline and all set off with a clear jacket. I hope his handler can get him settled, I liked him.

Limit Dog 1st: Poole's Hawkesmill Merlon

Open Dog 1st: France's Int Ch. Back To My Roots at Luna Caprese with Torbrae
Mature pepper with a delightful head and expression, dark eye and plenty of top skull. Clean run in and well laid shoulder, well ribbed and good length with correct set on. Well presented jacket and well muscled. His profile and hind movement are excellent. Well deserved CC and BOB and pleased to see he made the cut in the group.
2nd: Denham's Dentgate Mulberry
Another pepper but of a different stamp to 1st, excellent mouth of large teeth, would like a darker eye. Clean shoulder and well ribbed. Clear pepper jacket and good set on. Correct bodyweight.
3rd: Fox's Puddockswell Hoodwink
Res: Brown's Great Gatsby ze Zihelske Zahrady
VHC: Bell's Reidswire Lord O'Liddesdale

Puppy Bitch 1st: Allenby's Diddimont Luna Wuffgood
Very neat package, 10 months old and with the world ahead of her. Good balance of skull, dark eye and correct ear set. Clean run in and shoulder. Well ribbed and gentle topline to correct set on. Clear mustard jacket. She moves with confidence and I was delighted to award her the CC, an easy winner on the day and pleased to see her win group 4 in the puppy group, well done.
2nd: Bell's Reidswire Lady Gaye
10 month pepper with a well proportioned head and strong mouth. Good length of body and nice jacket. She moved well but just needs more confidence.
3rd: Karlsen's Diddimont Ginny Wren at Karezig

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: McCain's Blue Violet Flower at Bankwillow
Pretty pepper with a balanced head ,dark eye and good mouth. Clean shoulder and tidy front. Well ribbed and good topline and set on. Well muscled and moved with confidence.
2nd: Allan's Cloverwood Saffron avec Clairmorin
Mustard who would benefit from better presentation and some ringcraft. She has a good jacket, dark eye and ample skull. Movement was difficult to assess as she hopped all around the ring despite being given many chances.
3rd: Weaving's Dentgate Silk Threads
Res: Atkinson's Hullpride Cultured Betty

Limit Bitch 1st: Moult's Hawkesmill Meg for Zamdilsa
Pepper, litter sister to PG dog and very similar in type. Dark eye and good bite, nice run in and well ribbed giving a gentle topline. Well boned and muscled but could lose weight to advantage. Well presented.
2nd: Roberts's Power Of Love De Cynoeole at Marbledale
I liked her make and shape but her jacket was completely blown, pleasing head, eye and mouth. Enough bone and a good size and weight. She moves well with plenty of drive, I'd like to see her again when in good coat.
3rd: Wilson's Morawelon Cader Idris
Res: Weaving's Dentgate Silk Threads
VHC: Atkinson's Kingcottage Abilene West at Hullpride

Open Bitch 1st: Allenby's Wilmit Mildred Potter for Diddimont
Mustard who came in her underwear but with nothing to hide, melting expression with dark eye and correct balance to head. Clean front and shoulder, well ribbed and good length. She moved a little close behind today and gave way to her daughter for the CC. RCC.
2nd: Denham's Dentgate Mulberry Silk
Pepper with a well presented jacket. Good skull and ear set but preferred the darker eye and bone of 1st.
