CLASS RESULTS & CRITIQUES
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Officers and Committee for giving me the opportunity to judge your lovely show and especially to the exhibitors for the entry, it was a tremendous honour. I felt today that the quality of bitches was stronger than the males with the exception of my principle male winners. Temperaments were wonderful, disappointed with dentition in a number of exhibits and tail carriage let more than one exhibit down. Presentation throughout was excellent.
Minor Puppy Dog (3,0)
1st - Mr G & Mrs P Leech - Aquatoriya Kelvin Y'Amiti Spirit: Excellent size and bone throughout, forequarters stronger than rear at the moment. Moves very close behind. Needs to strengthen topline, a lovely character with a lot of maturing as expected to do.
2nd - Miss K Cooper - Stephensbear God Of Thunder at Lyvdians: Lacked the maturity throughout of 1. Correct fore and rear quarters, moved reasonably well. Head proportions in order, but expression is spoilt be ‘starey eyes’ caused by incorrect shape and lighter colour.
3rd - Mr K & Mrs R Mercer - Larkharbour Falcon: Attractive headpiece. Elbow placing not as good as 1 or 2. Handled sympathetically to get the best from this baby. Currently underweight.
Puppy Dog (3,1)
1st - Mr P & Mrs C Payne - Newettas Lets Party at Squestpaws: A lovely youngster. Skull needs to develop as currently narrow. Scored in overall size, super firm top line held well on the move, lacking angulation in stifle. Attractively marked. Best Puppy Dog.
2nd - Mr G & Mrs P Leech - Aquatoriya Kelvin Y'Amiti Spirit: See Minor Puppy Dog

Best Veteran in Show.
