I was so impressed with this 14 mths Mustard young lady. She stood out for her lovely balance of length to height and superb body shape. Beautifully groomed from her lovely head and topknot to the tip of her tail. In the class she was a bit unsettled on the move but when it came to the challenge she wss full of confidence. I was delighted to award her first CC and feel sure there will be more to follow!

Veteran Bitch 1st: Saville's Ire Ch. Puddockswell Maudie Mack at Darcellie
Stood alone in this class and by this stage Maudie, judge and exhibitor were all feeling worse for wear due to the heat and I was reluctant to send her moving too much but she moved very steadily flying the veteran flag! This pepper lady now 8 yrs was enjoying her day out. Pretty headpiece with lovely expression, nice neck and front. Nicely presented coat, though at the veteran quality stage. Sympathetically handled by her sporting owner.
