I would like to thank the Lancashire Heeler Club for my invitiation and the
exhibitors for their support.   I thoroughly enjoyed judging these sparky characters.  A pity there was only two puppies.

Post Graduate  4 entries 1 abs

1st    Davies Tapatina Fechin at Ronleydon  - Well balanced dog masculine head good
neck and topline, would like slightly less crook but otherwise is soundly constructed and moved out freely.

2nd   Sadler's Simonsville Fiery Fred - Gave his handler a hard time and wouldn't use his ears or he  might have won.  Such a fidget but I got a glimpse every now and then of a well made dog with dark pigment correct front and topline and a well set and carried tail. Moved out

3rd   Bancroft's Hotpot Boycie by Cheinban

1st   Cartledge & Lord's Ch Foxthyme Oliver Cromwell ShCM - Beautiful Liver & Tan, he caught my eye straight away. stunning outline using his neck and ears at all times.  Firm topline & croup, but his many qualities could not be denied - kept his outline on the move and dominated the ring with his showmanship.  Best of Breed

2nd   Jones' Ch Welshmoor Father Jack - Not disgraced here and close up, very typey, masculine head, well sprung ribs and well muscled all through.  Strong Croup and second thighs giving plenty of drive.  Rest Best Dog

3rd   Gordon's Troutop Rolo  -  Another one of excellent type and construction, very good head, forehand and topline - unluckly to meet the two above.

Veteran Dog  5 entries  2 abs
