Judge : Mr Frank Kane
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

As always, it was a pleasure to judge the breed. We had an outside ring and the wind seemed to upset some, and this affected their carriage on the move. Toplines, front assembly and rear angulation and front movement were the areas which needed improvement in some. Many thanks to my stewards, Alexandra and Barry Cole.

Minor Puppy Dog
1stQuingshui The Legacy BeginsAlmost 9 mths, b/white, excellent head and very good jaw and dentition, good topline, tail a little tight, moved well, strong rear pads. I liked him a lot and he should do well.
2ndEssvana Midnight Express9 mths black with good head and excellent eyes. I liked his size and bone, not as strong in quarters or topline as the winner yet.

Puppy Dog
1stVirtulvilage Rebel Rising at MiraceyAlmost 12 mths red/white, excellent outline held on the move, good skull and dark eye, very good front and bone and ribbed well back with good tail carriage. I’d prefer a little more under jaw to finish his head, but full of quality. Won Best PD on tail carriage.

Junior Dog
1stRossvale Fun In The Sun at Kimevan16 mths gold dog, good for size and bone, big nostrils, could have a little more rise of skull, good ribbing, needs to let down in stifle and this shows in his topline, good coat texture.
2ndTameron Mr Aramis at Portiakiss15 mth old gold/white who was very good to go over on the table but not happy on the floor and not lifting his tail. I liked his head and eye, ribcage and he has excellent stifle and quarters. I hope he will get the confidence to show off his qualities.

Novice Dog
1stTameron Mr Aramis at Portiakiss15 mth old gold/white who was very good to go over on the table but not happy on the floor and not lifting his tail. I liked his head and eye, ribcage and he has excellent stifle and quarters. I hope he will get the confidence to show off his qualities.

Post Graduate Dog
1stRossvale Here Comes The Sun over Fairmere17 mths gold/white of good size and substance with a good rise of skull and good eyes. Has very good quarters but he could drive a little more from rear, good coat, tail a little tight.

Open Dog
1stBattery Included at MaitreyaVery good class of quality dogs,.5 yrs, excellent red and white with perfect carriage and tail, very good head and eye, excellent bone and a good ribcage, topline never faltered. His front action was the best of the class and he shows his pads going away. I hope his owner won’t mind me suggesting a little more finish to his presentation. He is a lovely dog and deserves to do well. CC.
