PD 2. 1st. Salisbury, Pennywave Nosey. Parker At Brocklewood.most promising
prospect, I have admired him before and am delighted with progress. He
displays the breed virtues beautifully in a balanced package. Correct conical
head with dark, obliquely set almond shaped eye and correct modest break very
clean shoulders with depth to keel and limbs placed just right. He is compact
and muscular with decent topline and tail. Purposeful sound mover. He sports
a harsh coat which is well presented. BP R DCC and puppy group 2. 2nd.

He is honest in build but lacked the finish and tail carriage of winner.

for breed type and shape. He is well constructed and carries correct harsh
jacket. Balanced head with clean neck and shoulders held firm. Legs well
placed, sprung ribcage with strong short loin to correct tail set. Breadth
and shape to hindquarters. Typical action and sound. 2nd. Kilroy, Blackvein
Cupid At Janacop. I liked this lad, his head of correct shape displayed
decent attributes and shoulders are well appointed. Shape to body, a little
longer caste than winner. Enough substance and muscular he moved out sound
enough but not quite the dignified carriage of 1. 3rd. Martinka Storm In A
Teacup For Lonaza.

Helydon Laird Loki. Very worthy, of correct breed type. I liked his head and
attributes carried on reachey neck and firm well placed shoulders. Developed
body with substance and supple muscle tone. Not as settled as winner but well
PB 6 (1) 1st. Taylor, Pennywave Primrose For Ormanstar. Feminine with
quality and a confident bearing with a hint of arrogance. Balanced head with

presentation. 2nd. Dance, Emem Constance Sunshine. Good for type, she
presents a pleasing out line and was in good muscular condition. Quite well
