The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Club Of UK held a 16 class open Show at Tomlinsons Kennels & Canine Centre, Markfield, with an entry of 67 from 51 dogs, size, type and quality were mixed & it was impossible to have even line ups, but there was a good & friendly atmosphere throughout - the Tollers for most part were happy to join in, even veterans were bouncy and lively clearly enjoying their moment in the ring. Puppies were a bit thin on the ground only 2, a brother and sister. Quite a few, more so the bitches than the dogs were overweight so will have to work on their fitness. Some were slack in topline and a bit long cast, mouths were good as were temperaments. Presentation could have been improved in some, ditto in handling. Two first class stewards kept things flowing & everything was very well organised. I greatly appreciated the opportunity of judging this breed at club level and have come away with many good memories.

Best in Show was Riverwatcher Atka, RBIS was same owner's Riverwatcher Ikkuma, out of the same bitch, Shoredancer Sea Pink Via Riverwatcher, who was also the highest placed female in the strong veteran class, BP went to Camusmor Lika Star, and BV Can/Ir Sh Ch Littleriver's Colonial Boy With Tollyhimmel.

3rdAnstead SHOREDANCER SEA PINK VIA RIVERWATCHER
Quality bitch of 7 years, just a bit overweight today which didn't help her hind movement but she should be proud of herself for producing the BIS & RBIS winners!
