Hunter's Puddockswell Hootin Annie at Etsill

Shore's Swanwillow Sea Captain

Puppy Dog or Bitch

1st: Shore's Swanwillow Seabreeze

Pepper bitch, such a sweet head and dark eye, good muzzle and bite, well placed leathers, good front and neck, good on body and jacket, tailset sound, moved and showed well. Just needs a bit more maturity for top honours.

2nd: Bedborough's Hendell Crofter for Pitfirrane

Very nice all round pepper dog, unfortunately not covering the ground as well as 1.

3rd: Hopper & Trippett's Dentgate Destiny

Junior Dog or Bitch

1st: Chapman-King & the late Buist's Inzievar Royal Silver

What a super feminine pepper Dandie, such a lovely size, her head just melts you away, dark eye, good muzzle, ears laying so nicely, outline and tail set spot on, wonderful pencilled coat combined with excellent movement and wonderful handling. CC & BOB.

2nd: Shore's Swanwillow Sea Captain

Mustard dog, super outline, strong masculine head, well laid neck and shoulders, body sound, good rear and tailset, harsh jacket, a very promising dog for the future, moved with style. RCC & BP.

3rd: Hunter's Etsill Scapa Flow
Res: MacPherson's Dawsholm Wee Darick

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Riach's Puddockswell Gilded Imp

Good looking head, mustard dog, nice topknot, dark eye, good mouth, neck and front, general body good, coat quality nice, tail was set-on. His movement won this class.

2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Moon Shadow at Dryfevalley

Pepper dog. Both these two specimens are very difficult to split up. The deciding factor was the way the dogs covered the ground. Could easily change places.

3rd: Cox-Purcell & Butcher's Puddockswell Handsome Hector

Limit Dog

1st: Kerrush's Inzievar Royal Gold

Mustard dog, standing such a lovely profile and outline, stands out in a crowd, strong masculine head, when being handled moved back but never threatening, good teeth, strong muzzle, long neck and good shoulders, nice topline and tail, jacket in first class order, covering the ground with ease.

2nd: Skitt & Jones's Vistca Vincent

Mustard dog, very good outline. Not quite head of winner but still very nicely balanced, good topknot, dark eye and good mouth, not lacking in any other departments. Did not seem to get to grips with his handler on the move and having given him a second chance to improve sadly this was not to be.

Open Dog

1st: Carter's Ch. Cassencarrie James Blonde

Mustard, such a stunning dog to look at top to tail, taking the whole meaning of presentation to another level, topknot stood so naturally, dark expressive eye and good mouth, strong neck and good shoulders, nice topline. Would have liked a little more coat in the groin. Tailset OK. Such wonderful free movement, very well presented. CC.

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Kerrush's Inzievar Platinum

Very pale mustard, such a feminine Dandie, dark soft eye, good muzzle and mouth, well laid ears, the whole profile just typical Dandie from top to tail, good free movement, nice conditioned coat, so well out together, pushed for top honours, very well handled.

2nd: Osbourne's Pitfirrane Silver Lady of Braego

Pepper, sweet head, well balanced body, not lacking in any department. Just needs to fill out and mature and I would suggest a little road work to improve movement.

Open Bitch

1st: Hunter's Puddockswell Hootin Annie at Etsill

Good head and topknot, dark eye, good muzzle and mouth, sound front and rear, nice low tailset, good mustard jacket combined with fluent movement which won her the RCC.

2nd: Cox-Purcell's IKC Ch. Puddockswell Cloud Howe

Pepper. Both these two were very similar, but it only came down to 1 covering the ground more soundly. In lovely order.

3rd: Danks's Dawsholm Cantily Kate
