MINIATURE WIRE HAIRED
PD (4,3a) 1 Wilbergís Kanix Keith. Smart 7 month old dog. Good head and neck, neat shoulders, adequate front, good quarters which produced lovely drive from the rear. Would prefer more reach in front. Kept good outline throughout. RBD.
LD (1) 1 Mortonís Molloney Terra Fried At Cotherstone. Nice head, well placedshoulders, lovely quarters, moved with good reach and drive. Would prefer more upper arm and more depth through the ribcage.
OD (3,2a) 1 Thorn-Andrews, Iwama & Dellarís Jap Ch Drakesleat JP Jest Dis Once. Beautiful dog of nearly two years. Lovely head and neck flowing into correct shoulders. Good front, long ribbing, strong balanced quarters. Used all his assets to produce correct reach and drive with good action both front and rear. Kept a good strong topline at all times. Easily my BD and BOB.
PB (1) 1 Whitehouse & Evillís Rioban Lady Guinever. Well behaved 8 month old bitch. Good head and eye. Shoulder placement was OK although short in upper arm. Lacked second thigh but used what she had well on the move.
JB (4,1a) 1 Blackburn-Bennettís Shelsall Up To No Good At Shardagang. Lovely bitch, nice shoulders, would prefer more pro-sternum, good level topline, good ribbing. Lovely quarters which she used well on the move. Movement on the day won her BB & BP. 2 Thorn-Andrews Drakesleat Ethics Girl. Another lovely bitch, lovely shoulders, good front, good strong topline and lovely quarters. A little hesitant on the move and therefore didnít extend as well as I would have expected. 3 Hooperís Starhill For The Love Of Ada.
PGB (3,2a) 1 Blackburnís Shybu Saffire Perle At Stargang. Nice bitch. Good shoulders and Quarters. Nice front. Would prefer a longer more conical head and more width on the move. Well handled.

OB (2) Hardest class of the day. 1 Hutchings Ch Molloney Zena Ghost JW. Worthy Champion. Lovely head and neck. Good length of ribbing. Balanced quarters. Looks a picture stacked. Narrow coming towards me today. RBB. 2 Blackburnís Ch Stargang Xquisite. Again a worthy champion. Good head and eye. Well laid shoulder, good quarters.
