My first time judging at CC level, after nearly 27 years in the breed.
Thanks to my home country, Welsh KC, for inviting me.
I found the 9/10 ratio of height to length much improved, with longer leg/body balance. We need to watch rears as many were very close behind on the move. Dropping coat in late summer is a breed curse, especially in bitches, so I did not consider it in my decisions.

Open Bitch (3 entries)
|1st||Moult & Savory EUSANIT NAUGHTY BUT NICE FOR CROFTWELL JW|
CC, BOB. Although she had left her coat at home the quality of this bitch is superb. I judged her as a raw junior and awarded her top spot, she has held her promise. She maintains her willing attitude with wagging tail and jaunty action. Excellent construction throughout. Correct head, kind eye, pleased she won her crown today.
|2nd||Fielder IR SH CH EUSANIT BEST OF THE BUNCH AT CRETSHENGAN|
Similar comments apply, litter sister, but lacked oomph today so did not move as well.
|3rd||Black SEAHAVEN PARISH BELL|
Classically marked mature bitch. Good angles, lighter eye. Moved OK, would have liked more sparkle.
