Thank you for such a good entry, being second in the ring meant quite a wait and I was sorry to learn that some of you had to miss the gamekeepers class, overall I found the dogs were far better than the bitches, it was sad to see so many lacking in muscle tone. I still found many with short upper arms which gave a short mincing action instead of the lovely reach and drive that the breed should have, many were dipping badly in top line, I found this really disappointing and it does need to be watched, hind movement in some left an awful lot to be desired, it does make one wonder were we are going as a breed!
Veteran Dog (4 entries, 2 absent)
|1st||Burchell PALUDIC PLEASURE TRIP|
well muscled boy with a lovely head and expression, in good coat and condition he was really enjoying his day out. Good mover.
|2nd||Strevens AQUACADIAN FLIN THE RED AT TOLLISTY|
Much larger dog who was also in good coat and condition, rather untypical in head and not moving true either front or rear, have seen him move much better, just not his day.

A very nice puppy with a sweet head and expression, good body legs and feet, moved steadily.

Workmanlike bitch with pleasing head and eye, well bodied, good bone and feet, moved very well.

One of the younger ones in the class, good head and eye, I found her rather short in upper arm, good body, legs and feet not as mature as the first 2, moved OK, just needs more time.

Limit Bitch (16 entries, 3 absent)
|1st||Stubbs ALLIANCE DE LA VIE GILLY'S FELAN OF LORUSTE (IMP NLD)|
This bitch had the best outline in the class, most lovely feminine head and expression, good neck and lay back of shoulders, just the right amount of body, well angulated quarters, one of the few with a level topline, could have carried a little more coat to advantage but one cannot have everything and I felt construction was far more important, just drove around the ring, was pleased to award her BB. Well handled.
|2nd||Holte LAUVSTUAS ZEEME STARDUST JWW10|
A very nice bitch indeed, in excellent condition, pleasing head & expression, good body, bone and feet not quite the movement of 1st.
|3rd||Withey DECOYMANS PIPER TEMPEST|
Very pretty bitch with a most appealing head and expression, very well presented and handled, giving a lot away in age to the first 2 moved well.

Another favourite of mine with a most pleasing head and eye, good body, well angulated both ends, has lost some weight and looked much better for it, in gleaming coat and condition, moved well.
|3rd||Gibson CAMUSMOR ANY DREAM ULDO FOR ERIKACHEN|
Have always liked this bitch, but today was not quite in the condition of the 2 above, needs to carry far less weight, moved steadily.
