Puppy Dog/Bitch 1st: Kurg's Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
Pepper male who I like very much. He has a nice head with the correct proportions, large round eyes with a melting expression. Good neck, well placed shoulders, front needs to improve. Long in body, flexible with the correct topline. Good spring of ribs, deep chest. Nice hindquarters, correct tailset and carriage. In nice coat and showed well. BP & RBD.
2nd: Milton's Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit
Litter sister to 1. Very similar to her brother in head and expression. Similar in body, darker and harsher coat. Moved steadily and showed well
3rd: Skitt & Marshall's German Dandies' Trixibelle
Res: Jacka-Slater's Cloverwood Royal Rhea

Junior Dog 1st: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay
Mustard with a pleasing head and expression, well rounded eye, nicely filled muzzle. Good in neck and shoulder, nicely made body with the correct spring of rib. Nicely balanced shape with the correct outline. Waiting for his new coat to grow through, showed well.

Open Dog 1st: Kurg's Ch. Etsill Scapa Flow
Pepper who I judged a few years ago, did not recognise him. Pleasing headpiece, good eye with correct well placed ears. Good topknot, correct neck and shoulders. Would prefer a better front, he has a good body shape and correct outline. Strong hindquarters which he used very well, correct tail carriage. In good coat and showed well to win BD & BOB.
2nd: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger
Mustard with a nice head and expression. Correct topline but rather gay with his tail. He has a good body and moves quite well behind. In a quality coat of the correct texture. Happy showdog.

Junior Bitch 1st: Denham's Dentgate Fire Opal
Pepper girl of a nice size, pleasing head and expression. Large eye and well filled muzzle, correct topknot. Good neck, could move better in front. Balanced shape and outline. Good turn of stifle, well muscled hindquarters which she uses well. Nice coat and well presented. Showed well. RBB.
2nd: King's Bonnybeck Delilah Creek
Mustard who left the ring before I could make full notes. I remember she is a mustard with a decent coat and carried her tail a little gaily.

Open Bitch 1st: Denham's Dentgate Hollyberries
Pepper girl, correct size and feminine outlook. Good head and expression, nice muzzle. Good neck and shoulders, correct in front. Good length of body, nice spring of rib, with a good outline. Correct tailset and carriage. Well made hindquarters, good bone and feet. Nice double coat for texture and well presented. Moved well behind and showed well. BB.
2nd: Skitt & Marshall's Duneideann Limited Edition
Mustard who is a more substantial girl than 1. Pleasing head proportions with a well made body. Good topline, decent coat and moved steadily behind. Showed well.
