Pearson's Norfolkhaven Black Tulip

Junior Dog

1st: Hunter's Etsill Scapa Flow

Best mover in the breed today, good head, lovely expression, good neck leading into good shoulder, tail carriage good, nice big teeth, in good coat, very well presented, balanced, handled very well. BOB.

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Jacka-Slater's Cassencarrie Robbie Burns

Good mover in profile, in good condition and presented very well, balanced, shape held on the move, appealing expression, some lovely big teeth, well handled.

2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Moon Shadow at Dryfevalley

Difficult to judge hind movement as he would not drive, he hopped most of the time. Good front, nice reach of neck. Expression spoilt slightly by having a level bite.

Open Dog

1st: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad

Nice headed dog, nice reach of neck into good shoulders, good tail carriage, well presented and handled, typical expression, moved well.

2nd: Skitt & Jones's Vistca Vincent

Good front, back movement not so good. In good coat and condition, big teeth. Preferred his size to 1 but failed in movement.

Junior Bitch

1st: Miller's Etsill Northern Lights at Dryfevalley

Liked her for size, in very good coat & in the best of condition, good head & expression, correct tail carriage, held her shape all the time, liked her a lot. When it came to BOB the dog won because he was the more positive mover.

2nd: Hunter's Etsill Inganess Bay

Shade smaller than 1 and not just the shape in profile. Very good mover, lovely head, nice thin ears. Preferred 1 but still a very nice bitch.

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Pearson's Norfolkhaven Black Tulip

Spoilt herself by not moving correctly, hopping on back legs. When asked to move slower it helped. Nice bitch, good neck and shoulders, big teeth, in good coat and condition, well muscled, very fit.
