Ornac This One is for Mum - This young 4 month old dog needed a little more ring time.

Pendoric Rustic Red KA - This 8 month old puppy was presented well and very stylish needs more substance.

3 - Solasdas Walk Like A Man - Much like #2 with less rear angulation.

Class 11 Open Dog 7 entered
1 - Aust Grand Ch & NZ Ch Setterlands Tamburello at Pendoric (IMP NZ) Ė
This lovely boy was having issues on the day. He didnít care for the weather and was not going to cooperate even though his handler tried everything. Lovely in head, forechest and conditioning. Another day.
2 - Aust Ch Eirean Frozen Dream (AI) - Different type than my first place dog, less of him but pretty in front.
3 - Ch Brodruggan Rogue Trader - Pretty dog who also didnít care for the rainy weather. Good substance, lovely ear set. I did see this dog a few days later and he looked much happier in the sunshine.

Class 1a Baby Puppy Bitch Class 3 entered
1 - Martinridge Flirtatous - This young puppy was a clear standout. Both she and her young handler were unfazed by the weather and were all business. I havenít seen a young puppy with that attitude in quite some time. Just beautiful angles, topline and forechest.
2 Ė Ornac A Word With Mum - Young and slightly underweight, just 4 months old.
3 - Ornac Mums the Word - Littermate to #2 with same issues.
Class 3a Puppy Bitch Class 3 entered 1 absent
1 - Eirean California by Design (AI) - Pretty angles, forechest with a little more leg than #2.
2 - Southbeach Satin Doll (AI)- Slightly longer in body with less leg but very much like #1.
Class 4a Junior Bitch Class 6 entered
1 - Eireannmada Shallwedance - This was the youngest bitch at just 1 year old in a class that was outstanding. This solid young bitch had the correct length of rib and loin, forechest, pretty in head with dark eyes of the correct shape. Not overdone or fancy but this bitch could move out where she showed herself the best. Again, her young handler kept her under control and showed finesse.
2 - Ch Gwyndara Joint Venture - Pretty, fancy bitch. Iíd like to see more length in the rib. Presented in lovely condition.
3 - Eireannmada Rosetta Stone - Pretty head, much like 2nd place. slightly steeper in shoulder than other two.
Class 5a Intermediate Bitch Class 8 entered 1 absent
1 - Eireannmada Alouetta - This was a close contest between this bitch and 2nd place. Interestingly enough they are sired by the same dog. This bitch was using all she had and moving true. She is made better in the front and used that attribute. Pretty heads on both.
2 - Ch Eireannmada Queen of Rock Ė Much like the 1st place bitch a little fancier and the 1st place bitch moved out better on this day.
3 - Pendoric Playn Wiv Fire - Very pretty could use more weight.
Class 10a Australian Bred Bitch Class 9 entered
1 - Ch Brodruggan Dancing Doll - Pretty bitch, sound. Not fancy but well put together.
2 - Aust Ch Gwyndara Kiss That Girl - Longer in body , thicker in front.
3 - Ch Pendoric Red Angel - Much like 1st place but I would give her a better croup.
Class 11a Open Bitch Class 8 entered 1 absent
1 - Ch Dunloe Original Sin - Pretty bitch topline, tailset , size. She appeared to not like the footing and weather.
2 - Rhiannon Celtic Kiss - This was a little too much bitch for me. She didnít seem to like the conditions and her handler had some problems getting her set.
3 - Ch Pendoric Perfect Angel - Pretty overall could improve on tail set.
Class 12aa Veteran Bitch 7-10 3 entered 2 absent
1 - Aust Ch Ornac Opps Fordagossips ET - This lovely old girl was beautiful in her own right. Presented with much pride from their owners and it was a privilege to have her in my ring.
