BEST OF BREED : 3250 HILL Miss G Ch Crillee Catch Of The Day With Gillaire
I thoroughly enjoyed judging our wonderful breed and was pleased movement has improved since I judged last year.
1 Purchon's Jokyl Draw The Line. Smart pup, good head and eye, used his ears well, tail on top, moved and showed well for his age.
2 Mitchell & McColl's Thistleaire The Buzzard. A raw baby, needs time and training, wouldn't use his ears.
1 Turner's Crillee Maximus The Cool. Lovely make and shape, good length of head, good eye and expression, nice length of neck into good layback, tail well set, good mover, on his toes, very well presented. BP.
1 Vickers & Vickers' Eskwyre Sunny Bay. Very eyecatching, lovely outline, good length of head and small dark eye, excellent tail set, nice bend of stidle with well let down hocks, sound movement, good temperament. Very well presented. RCC. Should have a successful future.
2 Gregg's Bambusa So Noble. Not as good in head as first (wider and shorter skull), would like more length of neck and better layback, good hard coat, level topline with tail on top.
1 Toulson's Toulsyork Noted Nat. Good head and eye, used his ears well, good colour and hard coat, tail on top, moved well.
2 Collins' Toulsyork King Lincoln. Stronger in head than first, finer trimming would help here, good eye, wouldn't use his ears, compact fairly cobby dog.
