Critique - Bitches: Mrs Enid Hinslea (Northamber)

I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge bitches at this popular Breed Club Show and the exhibitors for their fabulous entry. Thanks must go to my extremely efficient stewards who kept the ring moving well.  I really enjoyed the day with some beautiful bitches to judge and the quality in some classes was outstanding with some hard decisions having to be made.  One comment I would like to make is that the floor in this venue seems to affect movement and bitches I have seen moving with real drive seemed hesitant today. 

BITCHES

Minor Puppy (6)

1.   Morris-Begg's Gwendariff in Neon Lights over Sumaric  6 month well balanced puppy in good coat and condition.  Pretty head, kept her topline well for a 6 month old, good balance and angulation, moved happily.
