Here are some of Summer's critiques


Driffield Championship show, Judge was Mr Eddie Webster

In beautiful coat & condition. She has come on so much since i last judged her she h
as matured into a very good example of the breed, she has quality, balance & loads of breed type, well sculpted head dark eye and pigment giving a super appealing expression, good reach of neck, excellent shoulder placement, firm level topline that's held on the move, her tail comes off well and is used a lot, tremendous rear end with good width of thigh & turn of stifle hocks well let down, very good bone & catlike feet, ribbing of good shape & length, short coupled & in very good condition. A powerful mover that would probably go all day.  Her handler certainly used all the ring to her advantage. Shown at the top of her game & in beautifully presented coat. A credit to her owner and breeder.  C.C. her third.


Bournemouth Championship show, Judge was Mr Jim Richardson

She ticked all the boxes for me. Not only is she good type, she has all the other essentials including attitude, which makes her complete in my eyes.  She didn't put a foot wrong in all the challenges. So well balanced and feminine.  Attractive head with those laughing eyes which portrays that she is in  the peak of health and at the top of her game. Kind soft expression, super forehand construction with well developed hind quarters to match, in between there is a well ribbed body, deep brisket & a strong level topline. She commanded attention on the move with her effortless forward reach and strong rear action which is very stylish. So eye catching & her clever handler gets the best from her. Put down to perfection C.C. her first and B.O.B.


Welsh KC Championship show, Judge was Mrs Jayne Storey (Rosenjay)

Loved everything about her, pretty head,  good length of neck flowing into correct shoulder placement, super topline and  tailset, good depth and spring of rib, good bone, neat feet, perfectly balanced.  Excellent presentation & handled so well without fuss a perfect picture. CC


WELKS Championship show. Judge was Mrs Sandra Birkin-Green (Sansue)

Stunning Youngster with appealing head, melting expression. Straight front, good bone and neat feet. Well made throughout.  Loved to watch her move. Should have a very bright future. Best Puppy with my co-judges agreement


Scottish Breeds Championship show. Judge was Mrs Sue Barnes.

lovely head & expression with dark pigment, excellent length of neck cleanly flowing into well laid back shoulders & good length of upper arm, straight front legs, good length of body, level topline, tail well set on, excellent bend of stifle & well let down straight hocks, good second thigh, moved out with drive & style on very tight feet, well handled & presented in gleaming coat & firm condition, a very classy blonde. BP with agreement of my co-judge.


GRC of Scotland Championship show. Judge was Mrs Kim Ellis

New to me, completely filled the eye, in well presented pale coat, so well balanced, feminine well proportioned and chiselled head, kind inquisitive expression, lovely neck and shoulders, well angulated front and rear, good bone and cat like feet, an absolutely super puppy who moved with accuracy and style, maintaining her level topline and tailset, what a find!  I shall follow her progress with interest.  With her clean flowing lines, my co-judge too thought she was lovely, well deserved Best Puppy in Show.


Banbury & District C.A, Judge was Mrs Amelia McLean (Galenco)

A beautiful elegant bitch with the most pretty head and dark eye, straight front, lovely reach of neck flowing into well laidback shoulders,level topline which she held on the move, well set on tail, good rear angulation, she flowed effortlessly around the ring keeping her lovely outline, Beautifully presented and well handled, I later learnt that this win gave her the final point for her junior warrant RBOB, and what a day for her as she also went resBPIS.
