What a lovely day to judge dogs at this very well run show . Thank you to my efficient stewards . It was a very hot day so I tried not to keep the dogs standing about too long .

A young lady who is at the top end of puppy , Her construction is good , nothing overdone . She has a sweet expression , her neck flows into her well set shoulders , her front and rear angulation balanced and when she moves she is true coming and going . Shown in good coat and well handled by her owner . Happy to award her Best Puppy .

1st Gratton , Bardonhill Snow Wolf With Glenlaine

This young man is looking well , he has a lovely type of head with a correct dark eye giving a soft expression . He has all the qualities to mature into a good dog . I liked how he stood over the ground , good layback of shoulder , with a gentle slope to his topline and a good tailset , on the move he is collected and I liked the way he used his tail . He has a super dark coat of excellent quality for his age .

Super head , dark eye with well set ears and he looks at you with  a " typical  " cheeky Irish expression , His topline flows no lumps or bumps , lovely clean arched neck and correct front assembly and although still needs time to mature in body he is well ribbed back , Good rear angulation which he uses well on the move , straight and true with good footfall . Presented in a good coat and lovely muscular order . Has a lovely relationship with his handler .

What a super class of male dogs . All shown in excellent coat and presented beautifully

1st Wilkins , MargaretWoods Gobstopper JW ShCM

A lovely headed dog , lots of work with super raised brows , masculine but soft  expression,  deep though his chest and well ribbed back . His strong back end is well angled and he stands on good feet . He has a beautiful coat of excellent quality and was presented spot on . On the move he has a good length of stride and uses his tail really well . He showed a little more verve than the 2nd place dog and this is what eventually won him the Class . I was delighted to award him BOB .

2 year old male , strong young dog  who he has a masculine head and a kind eye which gives him a soft expression . Good layback of shoulder and good angles front and rear . Well sprung rib cage . His coat is nicely marked and he was presented well .    He could drop a little weight , which will improve his outline . He is a good dog and I am sure as their partnership develops they could do well in the ring . RBOB
