Many thanks to the Committee for inviting me to Judge this lovely show, to the exhibitors for their entry and Amanda and Thorson for keeping things running smoothly.

Temperaments were excellent throughout and all bites were correct. We have some quality youngsters coming through and I was very pleased with my winners.

Puppy Dog  (2 entries)
1st Miles’ Littlehidden Jyme Spicez At Jaybiem.
Quite a tall 11 month old puppy who was going to take time to fill his frame. He has a nice masculine head with dark eye, correct bite, a good reach of neck but a little upright in shoulder. Stands quite narrow in the front and needs to develop in forechest, he had enough hind angulation. On the move was a little erratic today, given his young handler a hard time.
2nd Cross’s Kyleburn Night Wayfarer at Kilnpond.  A very raw baby at eight months who is also going to take time. He has a nice head developing with correct bite. level topline, good hind angulation; was a free and easy mover.

Junior Dog  (3)
1st Green’s Matthias Vom Durrbachler Wald at Waldershelf  (Imp Nld)
. A 15 month old going through the teenage stage. He has a nice head developing with dark eye, correct bite. He has reasonable reach of neck but a little steep in upper arm. Good level topline, short loin and good rear angulation, well set tail. On the move he was free and easy and true in all directions.
2nd Reynolds & Pawlysyn's You’re Good But I Am Better Berno Vega (imp Ltu) Taf.  Another 14 month old boy going through the teenage stage but everything in the correct place. He is nicely marked, a good head developing and a shade light in eye, correct bite. Good neck and shoulder, well developed forechest, level topline and lovely hind angulation. A nice rounded rump, correct tail set, moved well in front and in profile but a shade close in the rear today. These two could easily change places on another day. Both should have a promising future, would like to see them in a couple of years time.
3rd Rumble’s Harvestbank In Dreams Of Glenbrienz

Post Graduate Dog  (9 entries, 2 absentees)
1st Miles & Ishaque's Jaybiem Stan Innovation JW.
  A lovely dog with excellent breed type, just 2 years old so the best is yet to come. He has a nice masculine head, well marked, good neck and shoulder, a well developed forechest and level topline. Good rear angulation. He moves true and steady and soundly when viewed from all angles. Would just like him to have a little more enthusiasm on the move which just cost him to go any further today but surely his day will come.
2nd King & Green's Joseph Vom Durrbachler Wald At Arvella JW (Imp Nld). Another dog of excellent breed type, just at the in between stage. Head is developing well, eye could be a touch darker, correct bite. Good reach of neck and depth of chest. Good bone, a bit soft in the front pasterns and a touch long in loin, well developed hind quarters. Moved well – very promising.
3rd New’s Meadowpark Just Dreamy.

Limit Dog (5 Entries no Absentees)
1st Rothery’s Glamrock Graffiti Artist ShCM.
  A 4 year old dog who is just coming to his best. Above medium size, excellent breed type, strong masculine head, correct bite, well marked, good length of neck and well placed shoulders. Good length of upper arm, well off for bone, firm topline, strong rear hindquarters. On the move he reached well out in front, with excellent profile movement, but going away was close in his rear movement. Forgave him this due to his other qualities. Presented in lovely coat and condition, pleased to award him the CC.
2nd Reynolds & Atkinson's Meadowpark Secret Blend.  Medium size male of excellent type. Loved his overall make and shape. He has good angles fore and aft, good depth to his forechest, level topline. Head is masculine but would like a little more strength in his muzzle. Correct bite, lovely clean markings, he comes into his own on the move, reaching out well in front and moved with drive in the rear. Not in his best coat today and felt he needed a little more maturity for top honours today. Well handled and presented Reserve CC.
3rd Bridges’ Deerpark Traveling Man V Kernow (Imp USA)

Open Dog  (2)
1st Green’s Ch Alpenspirit Pure Pleasure For Arvella (Imp Can)
. A 5 year old mature male of excellent breed type with the most gorgeous head and expression. A shade light in eye, correct bite, good neck and shoulder. A little steep in upper arm, deep chest. Was a little soft in topline today which just spoiled his overall outline. Excellent hind angulation. He lacked enthusiasm on the move today and was very close in his rear movement.
2nd Hughes' Waldershelf Causing Kaos.  4 years old and just coming to his best. Good for size, head is masculine but would like a little more strength in his muzzle. Good neck and shoulder but a little steep in upper arm. Excellent topline and rounded quarters. Profile movement was excellent but can be a little untidy coming towards. Well presented and handled.

Good Citizen Dog or Bitch (4, 2)

. A 16 month old bitch of pleasing type. I liked her overall shape. She has a nice feminine head, excellent reach of neck and shoulder, straight front and level topline. Strong hindquarters. Moved well in profile and going away, just needs to tighten up a little in her front movement. Was in good coat and condition. Well handled. Should make up into a very nice bitch in time, will watch with interest.
2nd Goodyear’s Harvestbank Indian Summer.  Another quality girl with a nice head, dark eye and typical markings. Lovely rich dark tan. Enough bone for size, good reach of neck and shoulder, standing a little bum high at the moment but sure to catch up at only 14 months. Good hind angles.
