Best in Show

I very much enjoyed my visit to the principality. As always the welcome and hospitality was superb. My thanks to the committee and secretary. BIS was Roberts, Ch. Swansford Vivadora. An ideal size, soundly made. Standard long haired bitch. Oozing quality with excellent proportions and feminine outlook. She moved strongly keeping a lovely outline. To finish the picture a correct shaded red coat. RBIS was Giddards’, Ch. Minard Krystal Darque. Black and tan Miniature Long Haired bitch. A favourite of mine who I have liked very much on a previous occasion. Everything about her pleases. Correctly put together and full of quality. As always showed herself off to perfection. BPIS was McCalmonts’, Silvae Patriot. Standard Wire Haired. Strongly made young man. Good head and neck, ribbing and topline. Excellent bone and a good harsh coat. Moved steadily for one so young. At I understand his first show. One to watch. Good luck to him. RBPIS was Angears’, Ridgegrove Dancing Shadow. Small black and tan Longhaired bitch. As always from this kennel beautifully sound. Moved well holding her lovely outline. A little gem.
