A well deserved class win. Great look to her typical head, really good front assembly. Well angulated fore and aft, maintained a quality topline at all times, excellent feet.

CC & BOB. A good size class with some quality bitches exhibited. I preferred the substance and make and shape of this bitch today. A feminine head with a well set almond eye. Clean lines with correct wedge shape. Broad skull with ears well set back of correct size and carriage. Good bone and round feet, with slight slope top pastern. Well ribbed with good depth of brisket to elbow. Slight tuck up into a super rear construction. Good bend of stifle into a well let down of hock. A strong level topline, with a well set tail and carriage on the move. Free open gait with some drive coming from that well made rear.

Nice type, good overall balance and has the right amount of substance for her age. Pleasing in head, just needs to break a little, which should come with age. Lovely body properties and ratio, firm in topline with a well set and used tail. Stands on good legs and feet. She moved out well but far too fast which gave the appearance of her rushing.
