Many thanks to the committee for inviting me, it was a lovely day with a good entry, quality exhibits and sportsmanlike exhibitors. What more could you ask for?
I particularly liked watching the carting parade.
Minor Puppy Dog - 1 Entry
8 month old youngster. Liked his size and bone, a little bum high at this stage and needs to strengthen in pasterns but a pleasing type who needs time.
Puppy Dog - 3 Entries
11 months old. Balanced head with dark
eye and correct bite, strong neck and reasonable front angles. Very good bone and substance, looked good in profile. Good pasterns and feet.

Another 6 year old, very similar to winner but somewhat plainer in head and needing a little more stop but nicely bodied with good legs and feet. Sound on the move. Shown in great condition.
Veteran Bitch - 5 Entries
9 years old and at last one who really moves. Quite a big bitch but so well put together which shows when she moves; excellent forward reach and follows through with sound rear drive. Her slightly greying muzzle only adds to her superb feminine expression. One who really impressed. Best Veteran in Show
Best Veteran in Show - King's & Bramble's Ch Shirdees Bobbie Dazzler
8 year old who still looks good in stance. Pleasing head and neck. Liked her front assembly, lacking a little rear muscle tone but still quality. Both veteran bitches are a credit to the breed.
