Mrs Heather Stornton
 
Puppy Bitch (Becky)
 
Exceptionally well balanced 10 month old tri bitch with a super outline.  Melting expression with a dark eye.  Deep all through with a good top line.  Super feet and front.  Excellent quarters and a very true and powerful mover both fore and aft.  Her confidence improved as the day went on and by the challenge she really came into her own and out moved most of her older rivals.
 
 
 
Mr Derick Storton
 
Puppy Dog (Alfie)
 
Balanced R & W excels in head.  Neat front and feet.  Strong rear quarters.  Presented and moved well
 
Australian Bred Dog (KC)
 
Balanced tri, with correct head and well arched neck.  Good deep chest, ribs carried well back.  Well off for bone.  Smooth free action using well muscled quarters.  Close up for reserve dog.
 
Open Dog (Dudley)
 
Another balanced tri from this kennel.  Caught my eye from the outset and didn't disappoint when examined.  Super head with just the right amount of wrinkle and leathers set low and curling well in.  Muscular neck.  Short forelegs with good bone, neat feet.  Long deep body with a level top line held on the move.  Muscular hindquarters enabling powerful movement.  Best Dog and was pleased to see him awarded Best in Show.
