Black bitch of good size again displaying very good breed type. Preferred the head of this bitch to No1. Balanced with good angulation overall. Moved well out but did not quite have the freedom of movement of the winner. Very good spotting and clearness of coat.

3. Ch. Dumbledeer Youngs Belle - (R. M. & P. Young)

Black 9 year old bitch with good head and expression. Nicely arched neck, well defined wither. Balanced with good steady movement. Heavy spotting and woudl have preferred a clearer coat.

Caught my eye as he moved around the ring. Alert with a symmetrical outline, smooth, powerful rhythmic movement with very good reach and drive. Masculine but refined head peice. Good eye colour and pigment. Nicely arched neck, good withers, level topline, and strong loin. Very good forequarter and hindquarter angulation with accounts for him good movement. Although spotting is quite heavy on this dog, his base coat is clear with no ticking and I forgave him this cosmetic fault. Best Puppy in Show

Only exhibit in class. Liver dog leaning towards the higher end of the height scale. Very good head but could do with a darker eye. Lacking depth of forechest, short ribbed with a long loin.

1. Dallydom Ashton - (G. & A. Brown)
A 8 year old displaying reasonably good breed type. Good head and expression. Straight front wiht good round bone and forequarter angulation. Lacking somewhat in rib and could do with a better topline. Tail set low which spoils the outline.

2. Harmonyhill Casper ET - (A. Collins)
Liver male on the upper scale of height. Very well spotted. Temperament was very good, this dog was happy to be strutting his stuff. In profile lacking in symmetry with a dippy topline. Shoulders upright which did affect his movement.

Slightly overweight and seemed to pace going out and back. Better topline than the first and second dogs but unfortunately his movement let him down today.

1. Sprintaway Rubica Red - (L. & M. Donald)
Lovely 5 month old Liver bitch. Well balanced. Good head and expression set off by a lovely neck and well defined wither. Level back and short loin. Liked the strength of bone and overall balance of this puppy. Her movement was very good for one so young. Well distributed spotting on a clear white base coat completed the picture of this promising puppy.

2. Wanjdal Wild Flower - (W. & J. McLean)
A 4 1/2 month old black puppy bitch. Feminine headpiece, preferred her head to the winner, however the neckline and wither were not as easy flowing and spoiled the overall symmetry in profile. Well balanced fore and hind with well defined hock. Very good spotting.

Very good breed type just lacking the balance and symmetry of the first two. Very nice head, good neck and topline. Movement not as free and steady in the very strong class of lovely puppies.

1. Hillofsilver Lulu - (N. Doong)
Feminine bitch of medium size with good head and expression. Restricted movement caused by upright shoulder and straight stifles. Well strung ribs but would prefer more depth of chest. Tends to lose topline on the move. Very good spotting, well defined with a clear base coat.

Liver bitch of good breed type and size. Good head and expression set on a well tapered neck and well defined wither. Powerful level topline and good set on tail.

Catches your eye as she enters the ring. Medium sized black bitch, well proportioned with good head, expression and pigment.
