Minor Puppy Dog 1st: Milton's Etsill Blackstar with Wilmit
7 months, large head and eye, well boned legs, good feet, carried a good body. He was a little unsure of his surroundings but eventually settled. Moved OK coming and going.

Puppy Dog 1st: Drake's Tollcross Tartan Tavish
A pleasing pepper puppy who was presented in first class order and in coat of good texture. Large head, well placed eye, good pigmentation. Front OK, enough bone for size, firm body but could carry a touch more to advantage. On the move he made the best of himself out and back.

Junior Dog 1st: Russell & Greenway's Bardolynn's O'Leary
14 months mustard dog, decent body shape, balanced head, well set and carried ears. Good bone, coat of good texture that was in super order. He is well schooled and gave a good account of himself on the move, a touch untidy coming towards but OK going away, topline a touch flat in profile.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia
A balanced head, front OK but a touch tied coming towards, rear movement good, Coat of good texture and well presented. Good tail of correct length and well carried. Well sprung in rib and enough length of body.

Limit Dog 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Diggory Delvet
This quality mustard boy who is another I have previously judged and he has developed well. Strong head with correct dentition, adequate bone, good coat that was well presented, front ok, strong rib. On the move he was very true coming towards and retained good outline in profile. Today he carried a good strong body, good tailset and carriage. Pleased to award him RCC. Well done.
2nd: Parry's Belapapavo Baron Berkeley of Leber
A pepper dog of good breed type, he failed to the winner in front. Lovely headed dog, well placed ears, strong neck, adequate bone, good feet. Lovely body, good coat texture, looked well in profile.
3rd: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger

Open Dog 1st: Deacon's Ch. Cassencarrie Top Marks
This boy is no stranger to me and has won well before under me. A pepper dog out of the top drawer he impressed me for breed type and masculinity combined with quality. Lovely quality head, strong powerful foreface, well set and carried ears good over the neck and shoulder. Good bone, legs and feet. Super body shape with well sprung rib and good shape over the loin with well muscled hindquarters. His coat was of good texture and well pencilled and very well presented. On the move he was true both ways and retained his outline in prolife. Standing he presented a true Dandie picture, pleased to award him the CC, just pipped by the bitch for BOB.
2nd: Bromley's Ch. Mishahda Volcanic Storm
6 years, well balanced head, good expression, nice clean neck, shoulders well laid. Ribs well sprung, carried a touch too much body for me which showed on the move. As he could have displayed more drive in profile.
3rd: Bell's Hawkesmill Indigo from Reidswire

Veteran Bitch 1st: Powis & Wallen's Venord Windchant
This 7½ years mustard was presented in first class order with a coat of super texture. A quality headed girl who had such an appealing expression. Good mouth, decent front, good bone, well ribbed body. Gave a good account of herself on the move out and back.

Minor Puppy Bitch 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Sophie
This 6 months pepper bitch is very much a baby as you would expect, she carried a good body for her age, balanced head, lovely eye. Strong neck, front OK, good outline in profile.

Puppy Bitch 1st: Milton's Puddockswell Hot Lips Houlihan at Wilmit
11 months mustard, very pleasing type, good head and expression, good legs and feet, good body and balance, good set-on, moved well in front, OK going away but very good in profile. Could do with a new coat but what she had was of good texture. Pleased to award her BP. Well done.
2nd: Drake's Tollcross Thistledown
A pepper who was presented in super coat of good texture, needs to develop in head, good body, correct length of tail. On the move she was not as collected as the winner in profile.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Powis & Wallen's Siwop Black Baccara Rose
Well proportioned head, good body properties, front OK, but a touch stilted on the move behind. She did not make the best of herself and lacked drive in prolife tending to spoil her outline.

Limit Bitch 1st: Shore's Mishahda Golden Chestnut at Swanwillow
This mustard girl has certainly come on since I judged her as a minor puppy, she scored in this class on length of neck, nice head and eye, well boned front but a touch loose coming towards. Lovely well ribbed body, good topline and tailset. She could have done with a new coat but the texture was good. She moved with purpose and style and gave a good picture in profile.
2nd: Jacka-Slater's Cloverwood Duchess May
Yet again I have judged this quality mustard before and still admire her good breed type. Today she was presented in super coat but for me carrying a touch too much body which spoilt her outline in profile. Good coming towards but today she looked a touch stilted going away. Lovely head and eye.
3rd: Bell's Dandiroyal Rita Skeeter
Res: Bromley's Mishahda Vibrant Amber

Open Bitch 1st: Milton's Ch. Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit
I have judged this pepper bitch before and liked her, she has now matured into a lovely bitch. So true in front, good head and eye, shoulder placement OK, good rib, carried a super body, strong well muscled hindquarters. On the move she was good out and back and has strengthened behind since I judged her as a youngster. Her coat was of the correct texture and was very well presented giving a good picture. In profile she looked super and strode out so well which carried her through to the CC & BOB in good company. Well done.
2nd: Rolland's Dandiroyal Puddleglum
Again I have judged this pepper bitch before & done her well. Strong balanced head with a lovely dark eye, well set and carried ears giving a good expression. Good width in front but today was not as accurate coming towards as the winner, strong and firm going away. Good body and rib. Her pencilled coat was of a good texture and well presented.
