1ST MIKETTE MARIO MILLIONAIRE AT ZAKRO (MRS L J ADAMO). Turned out this youngster is son of my best of breed. Only just into junior, I was quite taken by him. Just right for size and masculinity. Has width to skull, flattening to occiput. Well fitting eyes with a confident vivacious outlook. Balance of neck to high withers. Level back to slight slope to croup .Width to rump and muscled thighs. Correct angulation to strong hock. Went with free lively action. BD.
2ND RADIVA BABY OCEAN ( MISS M J BRIDGE). 15 month, typical expression from balance of head and correct eye. Good width to underjaw. Pleasing body proportions. Lovely personality, did not always concentrate on the move .
3RD IL GRANAIO DEI MALATESTA RICHARD AT NELBEKIO (MISS J NELSON). BP.
Open – Dog
Entries: 3 Absentees: 0. 3 decent dogs.
1ST GAESTEN ZIPPY ZINGO AT NELBEKIO SHCM RL4 (MISS J NELSON). This boy was rewarding to go over. He has typical head with correct outline. High withers, compact body. Good leg length to depth ratio. In good condition and does not show age. He goes well just not quite the fluidity of the younger dog. Woolly curled coat. RES BD.
2ND MIZANI DIORO OVER SAVIO (MISS J, MRS L & MRS M NELSON, FERGUSON & BARKER). Tidy make and shape, not quite the body or finish of the winner. Took a while to think about his job, but on the final run off he presented a sound solid performance to take his place.
3RD GAESTEN JUST JAGO AT JOYDON (MR D H LIGHTFOOT)

1ST MIKETTE MINI MI MILIONI (MR J & MISS L GILDER & BLUNDEN). Super smart, presenting me with a typical outline of the breed. On going over her, she is feminine, but not weak. Her head is balanced, coming in to muzzle with dry lips ,but width to jaw ,housing white teeth. Correct ribbing and depth to leg with firm back from short loin .Tail come off slope to croup and carried confidently. Good presentation and coat. RES BB.
2ND IL GRANAIO DEI MALATESTA STRAWBERRY SYRUP AT ARCTICBREEZE (IMP ITA) (MRS L MORT). Only 6 month so giving a lot in maturity .Has quality and presents a typical outline. She is balanced from her lovely head and through the compact body. Handled to advantage so a confident pleasing mover.

1ST RADIVA BABY OH CHERRIE (IMP SVK) (MRS L MORT). 14 month. Good to go over ,decent head, dry neck. High withers and level back. Good tail set of the croup .Width to bum and long thigh. Would like a touch more animation on the move ,but sound enough.

1ST FULLFORGE FREE HORIZONS CON MIKETTE SHCM (MR J & MISS L GILDER & BLUNDEN). Thought her super son would take best of breed, until I met the dam. She is so typical in size and shape, a lovely shape to the head, well fitting neck, through good forehand, correct construction and compact body with just the right amount of weight and strength in muscle. She moves with lively sound action and never falters in outline. Curled weather proof coat. BB &BOB.
2ND GAESTEN LUCKY LUNA (MRS C SNOWDON). 5 years, she has a lovely expression from well placed and fitting eyes. Width to zygomatic arch and slight stop enhance this. Stand square and good body with short loin. A touch soft in backline. Rather feeling the heat on the move .
