Judge: Miss J Singh (Vandamere)
I would like to express my appreciation to the exhibitors for their support. On the whole, rear movement was satisfactory. However I observed front movement on some exhibits was unsatisfactory. I found one mouth with a misplaced tooth and another with a just passable level bite. Presentation of most dogs was of a high standard but some exhibits shown today would benefit greatly from regular daily exercise.

1st - Xapex Santiago At Otterwood (Mr M J & Mrs J M Hollingsbee)
Six month old blue and tan, pleasing head with a good bite and nicely placed ears. He has good bone, a thick pelt and level top line with a carrot tail. His rear movement was very positive and showed drive and although he had that puppy playfulness, his front movement appeared true. Best Puppy Dog.
2nd - Foxcraig Magic Aurora (Mr G R Sugars)
Pleasing head and expression, good bite and strong muzzle, good legs and feet. He has a deep narrow body with correct length of rib. He needs to be a bit stronger in his rear movement which should come with maturity.

2nd - Cedarhill Cuyahoga To Tarkadon (Mrs D E & Miss T Shields)
A strong headed mature puppy, large teeth with a correct bite. Good bone and in excellent coat. He was presented in first class order. Thought he was my winner, but front movement could have been better. He was unsettled on the table and did not seem to keen on his neighbours in the ring.

1st - Ethlencoral Pip of Ottaswell (Mr D & Mrs G M Hunt)
This grizzle and tan dog had a good otter head with a short strong muzzle, large powerful teeth with a scissor bite. Good length of neck leading to well laid shoulders and a straight narrow front with correct bone and tight feet. His ribs were carried well back and he was easily spannable. Coat was of correct texture and he has a thick pelt. Lovely profile with a level top line while standing and on the move. He has a good bend of stifle with well muscled first and second thigh and for this reason he moved with drive. His presentation and condition was first class and he responded to his handler to show off his qualities. Movement both ways was sound. Dog Challenge Certificate and Best of Breed.
2nd - Grindelvald In Full Cry (Mrs M A Bailey)
Unlucky to meet the winner. Another quality dog with a workmanlike appearance, pin wire coat, good reach of neck, forelegs straight and just enough bone. His body was narrow and spannable. He appealed very much in type and size, moved well. Reserve Dog Challenge Certificate.
