My thanks to the exhibitors for their quality entry, also to my two efficient stewards.
I would like to mention that due to the noisy ring next to our during the first three bitch classes, some youngster were upset and didn’t show to their best advantage, hopefully they will have gotten over it. Movement generally was good in the majority of dogs. Feet need more attention, some certainly don’t comply with the breed standard and certainly would affect them if they had to go long distances. Some just needed a little judicious trimming.

Entries: 3 Absentees: 0
1st - Sweeping Is This Your Final Answer Awbrooksky (Mr R & Miss L Goddard)
I liked this youngster for his out going attitude. He has a nice head for his age with a keen expression. He has a good outline both standing & on the move, well balanced. Straight front, good shoulders with a nicely made body. Well made hindquarters with a good turn of stifle. Correct tailset, good pelt & in decent coat. Moves with plenty of drive & enthusiasm so doesn’t need moving too fast. Paying attention to his young handler all the time. Best Puppy.
2nd - Fisherbloom All Eyez On Me (Mrs G Maskell)
his youngster has a nice head & expression but needs to use his ears for a better advantage. He has a good front, good body & nicely balanced outline. He moved well, just need to tighten up.

Masculine throughout, correct in head & expression. Good neck & shoulders, straight. front, good depth to his body with enough ribbing & a level back. Nicely made hindquarters with goo muscle tone.

This blue/tan was very close up to 1. He really looks the part with a very pleasing head for shape & expression. Good in neck & shoulder, straight front. Well made body, with a good back end & well angulated. In a quality coat, from the side he moves very well & he is very sound behind.
