Many thanks to the officers and committee for a lovely day and to those who entered under me. I had a selection of lovely Smooths to go over today. PD (4, 1) 1 Haywards Foxearth Fly Forward, sable & white baby of almost 7 months. Gorgeous head, already quite balanced with flat skull and dark correctly shaped eye, good muzzle, correctly placed ears. Fabulous reach of neck set into correctly placed shoulders. Good turn of stifle, moved well, shall watch his career with interest as he matures, could have taken him home, my RBD & BP. Took RBPIS on referee's decision. 2 Russell's Koczkodan Nostromo, a lovely class to start the day. JD (1) 1 Holloway's Coneypark Coldplay, 3rd in puppy, nicely made Tri boy of upper size with good construction, nice dark eye, although a little heavy in head for me. Carried topline well, with more training he will give his owner plenty of fun. OD (2) 1 Russell's Foxearth Fashion Guru for Koczkodan, well known 8 year old sable & white who seems to improve with age, lovely eye, good stop, flattest of backskull, nice deep chest, carry's and holds strong topline, good second thigh, moved and showed well, quite why he is still waiting on his third CC is beyond me, on this form it can't be too far away. BD, BV, RBOB. BVIS, RBIS. 2nd Leach's Manordeifi Dionysus. PB (3,2) 1 Russell's Koczkodan Serenity, feminine tri of 9 months, with the desired sweet expression, beautiful dark eye, correct ear placement, good reach of neck, correct turn of stifle. Well presented. Moves out very well, should have bright future. OB?(6,2) 1 Hartley's Foxearth Finish Spirit At Jimjack Sh CM. Quality tri bitch with a fabulous expression and dark eye, using her ears well. Lovely reach of neck, good shoulder placement, correct length to height ratio. Carry's her tail well keeping her topline level. Jet black coat that gleams. Steady mover with good reach fore and aft. My BB & BOB. Pleased to see her take BIS on Referee's decision. Another destined for the upper house. 2 Haywards Foxearth Fine Beauty, very nice Blue bitch of good shape with very feminine head, loved her expression, moved well. Reserve best Bitch
