very together in himself and very confident.  Classically marked boy. Strong head developing  
well with a good stop and correct bite.  Lovely reach of neck and has a lovely overall profile. 
Nicely rounded rump with a well set tail. His hindquarters are beautifully angulated and strong.
He moved around the muddy ring with drive and ease, keeping his topline level and pure. He 
has lovely bone and is just what you would wish for in a baby of this age, adored him. Best 
Puppy Dog and Best Puppy In Breed.
2nd Wakeland’s Collanues Secret Potion At Bramikdel. 
 10 month old darker marked and 
correctly much bigger boy.  Not as co-ordinated in himself as 1st today - maybe the mud! Head 
developing nicely, good dark eye with the kindest expression. Deep broad chest. Lovely chunky 
bone.  Tight feet and up on his pasterns. Pleasing shape. Kept his topline on the move, his tail 
never stopped wagging , such a happy confident boy.

Junior Dog  (1)
1st Jefferson’s Shirdees Fast And Furious.

marked with good bone.  Super head, good stop and tight eyes with a soft expression. Lovely 
reach of neck. Deep depth and broadness of chest and good chunky bone. Strong, level back 
and nicely rounded rump.  Happy boy who was rather proud of his tail on the move.  

Post Graduate Dog  (4 entries, 1 absentee) 
1st Phillips' Monalou Norwegian Star.
2 ½ year old medium sized boy. Very well developed 
with a lovely head.  Good stop, almond melting eyes and correct ear placement. Perhaps a tad 
long in body but he has a lovely deep chest and good spring of ribs. Well rounded rump with a 
correct tail set. Strong legs with tight cat like feet, he moved strongly around the ring keeping
his solid topline on the move. Pushed for top honours – I liked him a lot.

never stopped!  Flashy markings.  Well developed head, good stop and kind expression. Deep 
broad chest and super bone. Tight feet, up on his pasterns. Not as strong in movement as 1st 
but covered the ground easily.

Open Dog  (6, 1)
Wow - what a treat this class was!
1 Hartley-Mair & Dybdall’s Ch. Meadowpark High Class.  2 3/4 year old boy who is everything 
that a Bernese Mountain Dog should be. He demands your full attention, has such presence and 
he owns the place.  Beautifully put together with the most gorgeous of heads, his eyes are almond 
and kind, yet all male.  Lovely reach of neck, deep broad chest with strong bone to match. Solid 
topline which he easily keeps on his impressive movement.Excellent rear angulation, lovely correct 
tail set, tightest of feet, free standing 4 square.  He moves with such ease for a heavily built boy but 
he powers so lightly around the ring.  Best Dog without hesitation and delighted to award him Best 
of Breed.  Later in the day what a thrill to see him win a very impressive Working Group and 
beyond delighted that on the final day of the show he went Best in Show - Huge congratulations - 
so well deserved – he is a credit to his owners.
2nd Bird & Bridges' Kernow Something ShCM.  3 year old boy who is totally different to 1st but 
so much to like and admire.  All male, workmanlike dog who has a lovely deep chest, strong legs 
with tight cat like feet. His head is broad and flat, tight eyes with a soft expression, ear placement
good and has a strong stop.  Slightly long straight back with excellent tail carriage. Profuse, 
gorgeous coat. Super temperament.  Moved with a true purpose. Reserve Best Dog.
