JUDGE: JACKIE LAWRENCE (TAZIQUE)
Firstly, I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to Judge at this well organised and friendly show and to thank the stewards for supporting me. Also to the exhibitors for the lovely entry of quality dogs.
P (4) Lovely class of very promising puppies so it was a difficult choice for me.
1 Fenton, Layoli Glowing Embers
This attractive puppy caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring with her square outline, size and attitude. Lovely and feminine with appealing well-balanced head proportions, lovely dark pigment and correct bite. Enough reach of neck, loved her size and shape. Correct tail set and in good coat. Moved out well with good even stride and held her top line. Very promising. Pleased to award her BPIB and delighted to hear she later achieved Utility Puppy Group 2 Well done.
2 Barnett & Carter, Araki Susu What Are you Waiting For
Taller bitch puppy with good head proportions and dark eye pigment, good strength of under jaw, plenty of length of neck leading to well-placed shoulders, sturdy and stood very square and well balanced with good depth of chest, excellent tail set, well coated and very well presented. Level top line moved freely with good length of stride. Very promising. Just preferred the size of 1.
J (4), 3 Another class with quality youngsters, so again another difficult choice.
1 Hearne, Snoanda Designer Label
Loved this boy as a puppy and have been watching his progress. B/w quality boy, well balanced and sturdy, masculine head & expression with good proportions, good strong neck & shoulders, well ribbed up, held his top line & tail set both set up & moving, good reach and drive and moved effortlessly around the ring, in good coat and beautifully presented. Pleased to award BOB and delighted to hear he later was awarded Utility Group 3. Well done.
2 Green, Verony The Usual Suspect
Lovely feminine bitch with excellent head proportions and lovely expression, enough neck into well placed shoulders. Well ribbed up and good tail set. Well balanced, sturdy and stood square, lovely coat and presented well. Just preferred the structure and movement of 1 on the day.

Quality bitch of the right proportion and balance, lovely head proportions and expression, good bite with strong jaw, well angled rear, correct tail set and moved out steadily and soundly.
2 Stanley, Araki Foolish Angel
Very feminine and pretty bitch with a lovely expression and attitude, good pigment and correct head proportions, correct bite and strong jaw, good depth of chest, balanced and sturdy, well ribbed up, moved with good reach and drive, held her top line & tail set.
