1st Child’s, Tredura Clandestine Affair, 8 Months with lots of promise.  Head Long and Lean with long neck and dark eye.  Ribs well sprung with deep chest, straight front and strong topline which he held well on the move along with his lashing tail and exuberant temperament.  Best Puppy Dog.

1st Child’s Brenrue Outlander Shcm, 8 Year Old which looked a picture for his age stood out. Good head, expression and eye. Long neck.  Good coat presented well.  Correct topline. Moved okay but tail action let him down.

1st McDonagh’s, Ronzalda Figaro, Rich coated young dog with well angulated hind quarters.  Good deep chest but still needs to fill out. Correct sloping topline. Gave his handler a hard time and spoilt himself on the move.

1st McDonagh’s, Ronzalda Figaro,

2nd Child’s, Tredura Outer Limits, Lovely head boy (long and lean) with good eye.  Lacking the coat and overall finish of 1.  Good outline and tailset, but didn’t settle on the move.

1st Greenan’s Anlory The Living Daylights over Juleset JW. Dark coated boy with my kind of head.  Cleanest of outlines.  Superb angulation throughout which he used to his advantage on the move holding his topline well, with correct lashing tail action.  Was next in line for top honours!

2nd Barker-Bell’s, Balintyne The Continental JW.  Young correct sized dog.  Good masculine head, long strong neck.  I preferred the overall picture of 1, but he was easy to appreciate.  Moved straight and true.

3rd Webb’s, Alolfran Moment in Time.  If I was judging heads alone this would be the winner!  A little too compact for the breed however well angulated shoulders and good topline.  Nice overall picture.  Moved well.

1st Price’s, Severnvale Simply Special, Not my type but I could not deny his merits.  Very racey.  Good head and soft expression.  Nicely balanced and clean in outline.  Moved free and true.

2nd Child’s, Lyrasett Discovery. Incredible amount of coat which could have done with being tamed.  I liked him stood out but he lacked enthusiasm on the move.

3rd Middleton’s Trebeurden Diamond.  Head not my type.  Balanced in outline.  I feel sure he would perform better in an outside ring.

1st Lewis’s, Deaconara Danse De Bleu Avec Dotcomsetter JW.  Good well proportioned head.  Long strong neck leading to well angulated shoulders.  Strong Topline and lovely correct tailset.  Well constructed hindquarters and short hocks.  Moved straight and true with a lashing tail action.  Beautifully presented in firm enough condition.  If I am being ultra critical I would rather he had a more sloping topline but on the day he could not be denied him Best Dog and best opposite sex.

2nd  Middleton’s Trebeurden Diamond

1st Danks-Kemish’s, Tiroen Time After Time for Alolfran JW ShCm.  I have admired this dog from the ringside.  I love him stood out in superb show condition.  Lovely masculine head and long strong neck.  Good barrel of rib.  Perfect breed topline and good tailset.  Correct hindquarters with sweeping stifle.

1st Naylor & Morrison’s, Anlory Living Water.  For a 9 month old puppy she was beautifully angulated, especially her sweeping stifles and shortest of hocks.  Lovely head and melting expression.  Perfect sloping topline.  Moved so freely.  One for the future.  BPIS

2nd Russell’s Melmara Minervoif, A pup which still need a lot of time.  Well balanced outline, pleasing head.  Super length to the body although still very raw.  Moved nicely for one so young.

3rd Naylor & Morrison’s, Forfarian Got It Flaunt it.  A real baby in the class.  Showed a lot of potential stood out.  Deep Chest and strong long neck.  Couldn’t however match the first two for the head.  Very steady on the move.

1st Naylor & Morrisons, Anlory Crianza JW.  This is what I look for in a bitch! Beautiful head and expression with the longest of necks.  Striking outline, excellent bend of stifle.  Moved free and true.  Exactly what you would expect from this kennel.  I considered her for top honours but I felt she just lack the finishing’s needed.

3rd Hall’s Shenanagin Stardrift at Glennara JW. Well made elegant bitch.  Lovely outline with no exagerations.  Moved well but lacked a little of the drive of 1 & 2.

1st Waterton’s Lynwood Kissed by an Angel at Sandstream JW.  Overall this was the best exhibit of the day.  Not the head of her sister but still a beautiful head none the less.  Her exquisite shape and balance throughout was what won her best bitch and best in show.  Moved straight and true with a good tail action. 

2nd Hall’s, Glennara Lehana Jw SHCM.  The most gorgeous head and expression.   In excellent coat and condition.  Very striking bitch.  Sadly I could not forgive her hind movement.

3rd Robert’s and Bye, Colanme Confection.
