Judge : Mrs Betty Williams
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

Thank you to the committee for the invitation to judge this breed, and their hospitality. Also, to my stewards for their support and expertise keeping things flowing and to time. I found the breed to have improved in dentition in the younger exhibits, presentation was on the whole very good. Some movement is lacking rear drive. I would be disappointed to see outline and balance to decline further. I make no apologies for my top winners, I am aware that I have awarded to this kennel before. I my opinion they are producing consistent type and quality exhibits. As I have not been around the show ring for some time I was surprised to learn that the Dog and Bitch C.C winners are Litter brother and sister. The winning they have done speaks for its self.

Minor Puppy Dog
1stPiccolo Tibet I Have A DreamA Promising confident young boy 6 and a half months. Good head and eyes, good dark nose placement and good stop. Super mouth, level topline, lovely coat and texture. One to keep an eye on.

Puppy Dog
1stGladmin Soweto Storm JWAnother lovely boy with level topline nice length of back with good barrel chest topped off with a lovely tail set, sadly not shown off on the day whilst moving, but his first show so I forgave that.

Junior Dog
1stSistasu Silver Top JW ShCMPleasing young man of good balance, meaning good reach of neck and teapot handle tail set. Strong rear action showing a full dark pad.

Post Graduate Dog
1stMiracey Son of A Preacher Man for MatshaA lovely boy but a little on the small side, he has all the trimmings but just needs a little more substance and size.

Limit Dog
1stPeekin Archie Tu. Rich Gold profuse coat in excellent condition. Dark eyes in a lovely head with good mouth. Lovely reach of neck and good deep barrel chest. Well-turned stifle. Lovely on the move. If I am honest would like just a little more substance.

Open Dog
1stCh. Miracey Rebel RiderWOW. What a stunner, just what I wanted to see. The outline and balance could not be ignored, once I went under that glorious coat he had it all. Lovely bone, correct rib and loin proportions, level topline teapot handle tail set, Good shoulders and fore arm with deep chest and well-turned stifle which gave the lovely movement from all angles. A worthy CC winner and B.O.B.

Minor Puppy Bitch
1stZeeva ReflectionsA right little madam sums her up, but she has a lot to be arrogant about. Very feminine head with dark well-placed eyes and good mouth on a lovely sound body covered by a splendid coat. If I could have chosen one to take home this would be the one. BEST PUPPY
