Many thanks to the Committee for their hospitality and to the exhibitors for the super entry. It was nice to be able to make the most of a large ring and really see the dogs move. I last judged the breed in 1997 and found that they have changed dramatically. There is quite a variation in type. Outlines altered greatly when the dogs were asked to move. Movement too was very mixed. I was pleased with my main winners who were all sound on the move. The influence of two well known kennels was apparent in my main winners, namely Drakesleat and Loretto, with my Junior D, Limit D and BOB all being sired by Loretto Whataknight At Wellbury.

MPD (9) 1 Angear's Ridegrove Cut N Deal. Nice 8 month old of lovely shape both standing and on the move, good forechest, ribbing well back, well angulated both ends, moved with drive. 2 McAlister's Lochfine Robbie The Pict. Another well made puppy, good head and eye, nice reach of neck with well placed shoulders, well made hindquarters, moved well. 3 Fieke's Lustrum Merry Madrigal.

PD (10) 1 1 Thorn-Andrews' Drakesleat Spaghetti Junct. Sound boy with super front assembly, ribbing carried well back, well angulated hindquarters used to advantage on the move, lovely outline, held on the move, lovely head and expression. BP. 2 Fieke's Lustrum Merry Madrigal. Different in type to one, well angulated both ends, has good feet and bone, tight elbows, presented a nice outline, moved well, sired by the BOB. 3 Russell's Kevocklea Twelfth Knight.

JD (4) 1 Hadden's Wellbury John Deere. Had the best construction in the class, nice head and eye, in good coat, moved out well, good bone and feet. 2 Powell's Forbell Black Cap. Balanced dog in good condition, lovely head and expression, good forechest, tight elbows. 3 Thompson's Nordach Jack of Diamonds With Spengretta.

PGD (5) 1 Holmes' Curtisey Sweet Basil At Cazzdan. Good head, expression and length of neck, tight elbows, good ribbing, showed well. 2 Scott's Daisarch Dashing Dudley. Well presented boy, good bone and feet, well balanced, nice on the move. 3 Webster's Kaytian Kolapop At Mariadaw.

LD (10) Three stood away in this class. 1 Hallett's Loretto Not To Knight.
