|1st||Ravetta WAKADUZE WATAWICASTA|
Well presented and in good muscle. Good colour and in good coat already. Appealing wedged shaped head with good finish to foreface. Typey body with excellent spring of rib and short in loin. Wide hindquarters with plenty of muscle already. Moved with great style and character. Stands on good bone and feet and over a good amount of ground. BP.
|2nd||Parr KYMIN UPSHI KREEK|
Smart baby today attending his first show. Really nice for type and possesses the most gorgeous head with correct eye of good colour and shape. Super head proportions. Good length of neck, good front and decent in rear. Really enjoying his day out. Has a nice character on the move.
Post Graduate Dog (4 entries, 1 absent)
|1st||Dee MELANITTA CARELINUS|
Pleasing in head, good foreface and underjaw, clean in lip. Correct shape to back skull. Good little body with correct length to height proportions. Good topline and tailset. Good bone and neat feet. Correct ribbing with good spring and length. Short loin. Wide in quarter. Moved well.
|2nd||Woollerton CAMUSMOR CHILI PEPPER AT CULMGILLIE|
This boy was presented here in rock hard condition. Super rib shape and length. Good bone and neat feet and standing over enough ground. Pleasant head, very well presented. Would prefer a flatter croup but much other attributes to commend. Moved ok.

|1st||Anstead MULTI CH RIVERWATCHER ATKA|
Wow! What a stunner! Everything in the right place. He screams Duck Toller to you and when he moves he just takes it to another level. Presented in rock hard condition and in full immaculate coat. Topline solid and sure and never once loosing it on the move. Correct wedge shaped head with good eye and enough work. Clean in foreface with nice big nose. Ear set correct and of medium size. Great front assembly, fabulous ribs and short strong loin. Super rear quarters and correct tailset. Stands over a good amount of ground and has the correct length to height ratio. Strong bone and neat feet. There is nothing overdone about him - moderate but correct. When he moves his side gait is eye catching with that lovely spring in his step so synonymous with the breed. Super head carriage and tail action. He was pushed hard by his kennel mate for BOB, just edging it with his typical movement.
|2nd||Strevens SH CH ERIKACHEN CONAIRE AT TOLLISTY JW SHCM|
Another from the top drawer but of a different type. Again very nice head shape and correct ear set, length and shape. Good length of neck leading into super shoulder construction. Deep in chest, well ribbed back to muscular loin. Wide in hindquarters and standing over a good amount of ground. Presented in rock hard condition and in full coat. Handled so well and in total harmony with his handler.

Veteran Dog or Bitch (3 entries)
|1st||Anstead RIVERWATCHER IKKUMA|
I see she is the mother of my Best Bitch and has the same dam as my BOB winner on a repeat mating. Of same type and style and very well put together. Moved well and again has that typical Toller movement. Correct in topline. Good angulation fore and aft. Good spring of rib and strong and solid in topline. Pleasing in head, good in outline and standing on quality bone and feet.
|2nd||Ward FLUSHPOINT WHATA ARISTOCRAT AT MELANITTA (IMP SWE)|
Pleasing in many departments but I was not so keen on his length to height proportions. Pleasing enough in head, good angulation in front and decent in rear. Presented today in less musculature than I like but of course it is a veteran class so each are individual in their exercise capabilities at this stage. Moved ok.

Junior Bitch (5 entries, 1 absent)
Close decision between 1 & 2, both of which are very typical for the breed albeit they are of differing types.
|1st||Pashley WAKADUZE WAH PEN DAH SKA|
Well schooled, presented and in good muscle. Doing her job well already and in harmony with her handler. Good head and correct ear set, carriage and length. Good neck into shoulder. Lovely ribs and super hindquarters. Good in topline and croup. Good spring of rib, correct level topline and good tailset.
|2nd||Davies CATCH FIRST YLVA GARONERA (IMP CZE)|
Attending her first show and enjoying her day out. Most delightful head and eye and good body. Still needing to develop mentally but quite an exciting prospect when she learns what its all about.
|3rd||Parr KYMIN UP HILL|
|Res||Buckingham CATCH FIRST SVEA GARONERA (IMP CZE)|
Post Graduate Bitch (6 entries, 2 absent)
|1st||Carnovale KYMIN ORANGE BLOSSOM OF RHEE|
Really liked her typey movement. Solid and strong and of good make and shape. Would prefer a better expression, but she has a decent eye shape and set. Strong well developed hindquarters, good bone and feet. Really nice upper arm and shoulder line. Positive movement with attitude and carriage.
|2nd||Pashley WAKADUZE WAH PEN DAH SKA|
Pleasing in many departments with good coat and colour. Well muscled and nicely developed quarters. Not so strong in movement as 1.
|3rd||Elkin TOLLELKIN WATER DANCER|

Open Bitch (6 entries)
|1st||Anstead SH CH RIVERWATCHER PIKPAKTUK JW|
She has such appeal. Loved her make, shape and type. Of correct size and with correct length to height proportions. Stands on super quality bone and neat tidy feet. Her topline is bang on and her croup and tailset match. Excelllent angulation fore and aft. Deep in chest and ribs carried well back to strong muscular loin. Wide in quarter and good first and second thigh width. I loved everything about her and most especially her glorious head. Her expression is devine. Another from this kennel who really comes together on the move. Reachy side gait and strong out and back. She really pushed the dog hard and if Id been judging with my heart I'd have given her BOB. The dog just edging her by a whisker today. I found her absolutely stunning!
|2nd||Cox ALLIANCE DE LA VIE RED THISTLE IN ICESTORM (IMP NLD)|
Different in type to winner, but today out of coat. Very sound mover with pleasing head, good eye shape and colour and good in expression. Great forehand and good in rear end. Deep chest and super ribs.
