A very well run show with some lovely dogs to go over. Most coped well with the high temperatures but some were affected & maybe didn’t show to full advantage.
went to my Limit dog Jaybiem I Try for Shadybower JW with a delightful Veteran Carabaz Planet Queen at Timarabai taking top honours in the bitches, & Best Puppy In Show was a mature youngster Ardenbridge Big Bertha with Jaybiem.

Well balanced young man of nearly 10 months who looks the part standing but let’s himself down on the move as he insists on prancing in all directions the rare glimpse of his movement when settled was true & accurate. Just a baby so hopefully he will fulfill his potential when he matures.

Really liked this standard male of 14 months pleasing head with dark expressive eyes Excellent front and rear angulation level topline and sound steady movement well carried tail he was feeling the heat in the challenge but still did enough to take Reserve Best Dog.
Larger than one but still well proportioned with excellent head strong neck straight front good overall balance & sound movement.
Yearling Dog 5 Entries
Well grown male of 20 months who looks good in profile with strong head, clean front excellent coat and condition and well muscled quarters which he used to advantage on the move.
Third in Junior but his sound movement and pleasing type gave him the edge over the other exhibits in this class.

A very sound male who has an excellent head with dark eyes good pigment and strong neck, straight front and well angulated quarters. Well presented and moved with drive to win this class.
This two year old seemed to be feeling the heat but he moved out well to secure this placing. Looked good in profile with a pleasing head good neck & tidy front enough bone and substance coupled with a good jacket to complete the picture.

This was an excellent class of mature males with this 3 year old going on to take Best Dog & Best In Show. So well proportioned with a strong head excellent eye shape and colour, tight feet clean front and good neck leading into firm topline well muscled quarters which powered him round the big ring. His overall condition and excellent handler made him a force to be reckoned with to take this class to beat some other excellent males.
Another lovely example of the breed who was presented and shown to advantage stronger in head than the winner and of medium size but again came into his own on the move with his fluid action.

A very pleasing dog to go over balanced and sound in every department strong masculine head, firm body and well developed quarters. Well presented and handled with steady movement to take this class
Another dog who was in full bloom coping well with the heat to give a good account of himself both standing and on the move.
Another lovely veteran of 7 years who gave the winner a run for their money but just couldn’t match her on the move on the day. A medium male well proportioned and so sound with clean outline & steady movement.

Such a sweet expression on this 9 month old baby in excellent coat and condition, compact body well angulated quarters and in full bloom. But she was carrying a tad too much weight that affected her front movement, one for the future.
Junior Bitch 5 Entries 2 Absent
Lovely headed bitch of 14 months sweetest expression with dark eyes and well set ears clean front and well angulated and muscled quarters. Her abundant coat of good length and texture made her top line appear to dip but hands on showed it was not the case. Moved out so well.
Yearling Bitch 8 Entires 3 Absent
19 month old who presented a lovely overall picture as in the previous class the coat over her topline distracted at first but it was firm. Her excellent construction and type won her this class she moved out well.
Different in type to the winner as she appeared shorter in leg and stockier in body but she was well proportioned and had an excellent head and presented a pleasing picture both standing and on the move.

Top size bitch but retaining her femininity has balance and style in excellent condition with strong head straight front level topline and good angulation moved out well.
Another smart bitch who took a while to settle on the move but when she did she displayed sound clean movement.

This 4½ year old bitch ticked all the boxes feminine head with appealing expression good front and rear angulation firm body well set tail. In full bloom her coat and condition was excellent, handled so well to show off her balanced movement. Rest Best Bitch
I loved this naughty “young” lady but she was determined not to move acting more like a baby than her mature 4 years but that’s the joy of dog showing and she certainly was enjoying herself. A very appealing head mischievous expression presented in immaculate condition.
