Good body, well ribbed, well balanced throughout and moves really well. First class front assembly. Topline rising slightly but overall a lovely d. Seriously considered for higher honours
2ndMifcahs Im Still Standing for MorhenjoAnother lovely dog with much of 1 applying here. Coat was a touch wayward but of correct texture. Moves well but not quite the drive of 1. Correct tailset and carriage.

2ndLyndatzu VersaceA touch upright in shoulder. Has a nice head and expression. Coat in good clean condition but a touch soft. Tailset is okay but tail carriage could be better.

Post Graduate Dog
1stShanjora’s Calisto Boy JW2yrs. Lovely dog that fills the eye on entering the ring, closer inspection did not disappoint. Masculine d with wonderful, large, dark expressive eye. Good muzzle, superb bite which gives him that upturned chin and in turn a lovely arrogant look. Super front and rear with correct drive and forward reach. His outline is balanced beautifully with his well set and carried tail. A joy to judge. BD & BIS
2ndPeekin Archie TuWonderful dark eye. Ran close up to 1 but, nit picking, I preferred the expression of 1. In lovely coat and shown and handled to advantage. Superb tail set and carriage, nicely bodied and moving well.

Minor Puppy Bitch
1stCh. Shalehan Yarina For Mifcah JW ShCMLovely bitch that will surely have a good future. Shown in superb condition and put down to perfection. Fabulous lay of shoulder and her lovely turn of stifle drives her forward beautifully. Only 7mths old but so full of breed type. BPB, RBB, BPIS.
2ndMeilijo Don’t Look NowVery pretty bitch, good for size and type. Nice shoulders. Needs to body up a little but a nice prospect.

Post Graduate Bitch
1stGladmin InalaReally lovely b. has such a typy expression. Lovely dark eye, good muzzle and correct nose placement. Wide nostrils, excellent stop. Super front and rear assembly, good spring of rib and level topline. Tailset is correct although carriage is a touch flat in repose. Although a little shy of head furnishing compared to some exhibits, her overall quality shines through. As a wise man once told me, “you can grow coat but you can’t grow construction” BB & BOS.
2ndShanjora’s Golden SunsetLovely bitch to go over. V. feminine with dark eye and good muzzle. Nice shoulders, good forward reach. Good spring of rib and level topline. Fought her lead on the move so I suspect I didn’t really see the best of her today.

Limit Bitch

Open Bitch
1stZeeva Shadow Dancing with MeilijoLovely bitch shown in excellent condition. A touch larger in type than I like but well constructed. Dark eye, correct bite and dentition. Nice shoulders but rising slightly in topline. Moves out well.
