1. Malisco Whatsit Toyou (D E & L J Grubb)
BM Gold, overall a pleasing shape, would prefer a little less length of loin, balanced head with dark eye, angulated front with good sized feet, well angulated hindquarters, held himself together on the move. Best Baby Puppy
2. Malisco What Else (D E & L J Grubb)
B&T, close in type to no.1, well balanced head and correct eye shape, well angulated fore and aft, not as good in topline today, free moving.
3. Malsico Whats Happening (D E & L J Grubb)
BM Gold, similar to his brothers, has an appealing head and eye, quite well angulated, would prefer better topline.
BABY PUPPY BITCH

When this B&T got her act together she had a good outline, although longer than I would prefer. Pretty head, dark eye, good sized feet, quite well angulated fore and hindquarters, reasonable topline at this age, correct tail set.
2. Malisco Whats Doing (DE & LJ Grubb)
BM gold, pleasing head with dark eye. reasonable angulation on fore and hind quarters, preferred the overall shape of no. 1.
3. Flamz Charm Otopaz (Hayden & Simpson)
Brindle pretty head with dark eyes and an appealing expression, moderately angled front, deep brisket, well angulated hindquarters, tail set a little too high and carried to far forward, would prefer more balance overall.

BM gold sable dog, pleasing outline, long, balanced, but rather strong head with extremely dark, triangular eyes, good length of neck, well sloped shoulders that could be set further back, moderate depth of brisket, level topline, adequately angled hindquarters with well let down hocks, tail a little lacking in length. Balanced on the move. Best Junior

A free moving, cream dog with spring. Head is balanced with dark, triangular eyes. Good length of neck, correctly angulated and well placed forequarters with a deep brisket, but a little narrow in front with elbows held tightly in, topline a little loose, well angulated hindquarters and correct tail placement and carriage. Longer cast than no.1.

BM gold dog, long & lean head, dark eye, reasonable length of neck, front reasonably angulated but could be better set back, moderate depth of chest, level topline, reasonably angled hindquarters, tail carried over back.
1. Alaqadar Xara (Alaqadar Knls)
BM gold, dignified with an oriental expression, front reasonably well angulated but I would prefer set back further, deep brisket, level topline, moderate hind angulation, well let down hocks, rather broad back and tail too short. Moved with style.
2. Affyghan Irresistable (C Graham)
Taller, brindle bitch, longer cast. Pretty head, with a dark eye, reasonably angled forequarters, topline off level, hindquarters well angled with hocks well let down, good tail with correct ring. She was a little too distracted to perform today.

3. Kjavu Jet Jetson (Hayden & Simpson)
A stylish black dog that has many pleasing features, including a smooth, springy gait. Clipped saddle. Size was the issue in the overall placings.
1. Calahorra Country Club (Japhia Knls)
A well coated cream bitch, deeply saddled, that has an ideal outline on the stack with good angles, long neck and a level topline. Head is very appealing with dark, well shaped eyes. Would prefer deeper brisket. Good sized feet and well let down hocks. Overall shape and sweep of hindquarters won it for her today.
2. Tahkira Strike Me Lucky (King & Ferguson)
A sound BM gold bitch with style and elegance. Lovely long head with gorgeous dark eyes and oriental expression. Long neck, well angulated forequarters with deep brisket. Would prefer more angulation behind. Good tail with correct ring. Moved out well with a smooth balanced gait. It was a very close decision in this class.
