Just lost out to maturity. Very balanced lovely 3 year old bitch, nice head and level topline which she kept on the move. Good bend of stifle, well let down hocks with a lovely coat finishing off the overall picture. Just unlucky to meet 1st who was just a bit more focused on the day.

Best Of Breed

1st Open Dog Or Bitch

Three year old bitch, when she entered the ring you could see why she is a champion, she is the perfect example of a Duck Toller, from her foot perfect movement that is powerful around the ring, to her head that is clean cut and wedge shaped but also has the feminine touch you'd want to make it not harsh like a dog. She is a well deserving champion and it was an honour to go over. BoB
