Puppy Dog (1 entry)

1stWoollerton CAMUSMOR CHILI PEPPER AT CULMGILLIE
6 month old puppy who is full of promise & style. Lovely head & expression, good neck & super front assembly for his age. Ribs well back & correct length of loin, little bum high at this stage but should finish well. Super side gait on the move, just needs to tighten on the up & back but that should come with age.

Masculine dog of rising 3 years, good head with correct width of skull, well set ears, strong through neck & well angulated front assembly. Well ribbed back & firm through the loin, developed quarters. Good open side gait. Just needs to fill his frame to complete the picture.
2ndMoult & Savory ACANUCK SOUL REBEL OF CROFTWELL
Pleasing head shape, a little round in eye, balanced angled fore & aft & well bodied, not quite the angles of the first but moved well & covered the ground, tail carriage correct & super temperament.

1stHarding & Whitehill SH CH TREVARGH THE ENTERTAINER AT BRIZEWOOD
Outstanding example of the breed who certainly was on top form today & looking a picture. Cleanly cut head of good balance & an alert & keen expression. Strong neck leading to well placed shoulders, good return of forearm & straight front. Stands on good legs & feet. Depth to the forechest & ribs well sprung & back to a firm & powerful loin. His quarters are developed & as hard as nails. When he sets off you see his heels as he has such power & drive, his front extension matches & he covers the ground beautifully. All this topped with immaculate presentation & gives a stunning picture. No hesitation in awarding him BD & BOB & delighted to see him placed G4 later in the day, well done.
2ndHolt RIVERWATCHER K'EYUSH WITH MENSTONIA
Another impressive dog who is of good type & substance, slightly longer cast & not quite as firm in topline. Masculine head & keen expression, strong neck, good front assembly & depth to forechest. Quarters well developed & used to advantage on the move. Covered the ground with ease & an accurate footfall. RBD.

1stCox ALLIANCE DE LA VIE RED THISTLE IN ICESTORM (IMP NLD)
Cracking youngster who is full of type, stunning head & expression with correct proportions & width to skull. Strong neck leading to well placed shoulders & a good return of upper arm, depth to forechest & ribs well back & sprung, leading to a strong loin. Quarters developing well & stifles well bent. Good overall proportions & height to length ratio. Stands on good legs & feet & in super coat & condition. Her side gait is free flowing & ground covering, just needs to tighten a little in front action. In the challenge she came alive & pulled out all the stops to take BB & BP. One I will watch with interest.
2ndNewson TIVALAKE MORE THAN WISHES
Another very promising youngster but at 6 months very raw, feminine & balanced head, good angles fore & aft & body proportions correct for her age. Stands on good legs & feet & moves with a true ground covering action.

1stAttwater TOLLERICE BRIGLEY
Well balanced youngster with good overall proportions & correct height to length ratio. Feminine clean cut head, good reach of neck & well angulated front assembly, needs to drop & develop in forechest but has plenty of time for this. Good through rib & loin, held topline throughout, super quarters with developed first & second thigh stood on good legs & feet. Moved with drive & purpose, pleased to award her RBB.
2ndLangford GABERLUNZIE MOIRA
Pleasing make & shape, feminine in head & eye, good neck & shoulder placement, needs to tighten & strengthen in front, good proportions, super muscletone & well developed second thigh for her age, needs to come up on leg a little but plenty of time for this, happy mover.

2ndBurchell TIVALAKE COVER GIRL
Most feminine of head which is well balanced & of good proportions, alert yet kind in expression, good front assembly, ribs sprung & well back, slightly longer through loin & did not hold her topline as well as first. Good bend of stifle & developed muscletone. Moved out well driving from the rear but could not match first in front extension today.

1stMoult & Savory DECOYMANS PIPER MAPLE OF CROFTWELL
Feminine head of good proportions, alert expression & well placed ears. Strong neck, decent front assembly, good depth to forechest & ribs sprung & well back. Stifles well bent & good muscle, moved out well but would like a little tidier behind, shade short on leg.

This dog caught my eye on entering the ring and did not disappoint on examination. He has a beautiful correctly shaped head with lovely ear carriage and expression. He is a totally sound dog shown in beautiful coat and muscular condition and with excellent front and rear angulation. On the move, he was sound and correct both coming and going, really flowing around the ring in an effortless manner.
