Puppy 1 D/B

1st, Heathers Sixoaks Leading Lady, B Gorgeous well balanced head on this feminine 9 months old girl… Excellent bone and construction, standing on good feet, clean neck with enough sternum, good depth of chest… Well bodied up for her age, firm topline, well angulated fore and aft… Excellent breed type, oozes quality, playing up a bit, but I managed to see her movement which was sound.

2nd, Corless, Swiftlark First Knight, I’m so sorry I could not give this boy the 1st and more, but he would not cooperate enough when I tried to go over him to assess his front… I liked him very much, pleasing balanced head, good breed type… Good sound movement good width of hindquarters, driving off strong hocks I hope the owner perseveres because he’s worth the time and effort…
