Minor Puppy Dog 1st: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies River Mersey at Lenacourt
8 months pepper, good head, expressive eyes, well bodied, calm steady showman, good coat and condition, moved quite well.
2nd: Bailey's Tymeirz Spartan
6 months, real baby who needs to grow on obviously, still covered in puppy fluff, charming personality, good body. Filled in front and front movement, sympathetically handled.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Drake's Tollcross Tartan Tavish
18 months typy pepper, excellent head, eyes and expression, well fitting coat, good bone, long weaselly body but topline looks a little flat at the moment, moved OK.
2nd: Johnson's Incantocani Alberto
19 months mustard, expressive eyes, not in his best jacket, showed well and never stopped wagging his tail. Bit lean in condition, outline rather exaggerated for me.

Limit Dog 1st: Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia
2½ years pepper, good positive performer, good outline and proportions, well sprung ribs, quality head, broad skull, round expressive eyes, real character, well developed hindquarters, strong body, free easy stride when moving.
2nd: Kurg's Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill
3 years pepper, masculine head, most typical expression, lovely eyes, good bone and body, correct topline. Not moving as well in front as winner.
3rd: Russell & Greenway's Bardolynn's O'Leary
Res: Miller & Cox-Purcell's Puddockswell Augustus Magnussen with Dryfevalley
VHC: Sleight's Bonnybeck Moonlight Bay

Open Dog 1st: Deacon's Ch. Cassencarrie Top Marks
3½ years pepper, doing things his own way on the move, quality head, expressive eyes, lovely coat and condition, well muscled quarters, good outline and body, showed well when he felt like it. In the final run off for CC did not move as well as Kingham behind.
2nd: Tinsley's Ch. German Dandies' Terence Hill at Cloverwood
The ultimate naughty boy, this mustard who showed and moved on and off as he pleased, all male, excellent coat and body, well sprung ribs, good bone, pleasing head, good expression, front action 100%.
3rd: Bell's Hawkesmill Indigo from Reidswire
Res: Rolland's Dandiroyal Diggory Delvet

Minor Puppy Bitch 1st: Miller's Dryfevalley Miss Muffet
8 months mustard, self confident with intelligent expressive eyes, already know what to do, good bone and body, reasonable topline, moved and showed quite well.
2nd: Kurg's Etsill Fara
7 months, feminine in every way, but I should like a little more bone and substance, very showy and responded well to her handler both standing and moving, impossible child of 6 months, excellent type and quality, but has to learn what to do from basics before she can progress!
3rd: Tinsley's Cloverwood Yours Truly

Puppy Bitch 1st: Russell's Hawkesmill Karamel
10 months mustard, feminine face, sparkling round eyes! Full of goodwill, relaxed showgirl, sturdy body, well proportioned, made the most of herself when moving. Delighted to hear she went BPIS.
2nd: Johnson's Incantocani Florenza
11 months pepper, splendid coat, attractive head and expression, excellent body, could have a better layback of shoulder, moved OK behind but needs to improve in front.
3rd: Green's Hawkesmill Keepsake for Abbeywater
Litter sister to 1st, mustard puppy with pleasing head, showed with focus, good coat. Needs to grow into herself at the moment she looks a big long cast.

Junior Bitch 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Sophie
13 months pepper of good type, high spirited showgirl, good head and expression, muscular neck, good ribcage and body, low set hocks, moved OK.
2nd: Green's Hawkesmill Keepsake for Abbeywater

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Powis & Wallen's Venord Windchant
8 years mustard at her first show, doesn’t look half her age, super coat, strong body, well sprung ribs, good bone, not a bad mover. Bit of eye stain spoils expression.
2nd: Milton's Puddockswell Hot Lips Houlihan at Wilmit
18 months, feminine head, large round eyes, good body. Failed badly in coat condition, also poor hind movement.

Limit Bitch 1st: Tinsley's Cloverwood Ice And Fire
My kind of girl this mustard of 18 months, very shapely, good topline and overall proportions, best mover today and really excelled in hindquarters and drive behind, lovely head, round sparkling eyes, good neck, body and ribs. CC & BOB.
2nd: Garratt's Cloverwood Wish Upon A Star
3 years, carrying plenty of weight but this did not affect her movement at all, liked her head and expression, excellent coat, well presented, well balanced steady showgirl, I see her mum is the lovely Lemon Drizzle.
3rd: Bell's Dandiroyal Rita Skeeter
Res: Shore's Mishahda Golden Chestnut at Swanwillow

Open Bitch 1st: Chapman-King & Hislop's Ch. Inzievar Sparkling Silver
4 years, excellent type and quality, very good head and eyes, good topknot, in excellent condition, correct coat, fit and well muscled with good body and topline, happy showgirl, well handled, just not the drive or hind action of the LB but a most appealing Dandie.
2nd: Kerrush's Micklam Sun Kissed
Failed in head and expression, excellent bone, body and outline, carried herself well on the move, well handled, excellent coat, showy and focused.
3rd: Buckley's German Dandies' Violetta
Res: Rolland's Dandiroyal Puddleglum
VHC: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies Royal Dutch Emma Lenacourt
