Entries: 40
Result: Best of Breed – Best Bitch CC

W/O A fully mature very femine lady, so pretty and appealing in head and expression lots of work in skull giving correct planes. Neck, shoulder and sternum placement giving excellent front and assembly. Well sprung ribs with depth to chest and loin, ample width of thigh and correct turn of stifle enable her to move with drive, freely at an even steady trot. Pleased to award her a well deserved C.C. to add to an already impressive collection. B.O.B.
