1st Anderson & Frost's Ch Chancepixies Monopolist - 8 year old black still in excellent condition with square balanced outline, adequate angulation front & rear with steady sound movement. Long head with parallel planes, dark eye & alert expression. Short thick coat & rich rust markings. In agreement with my co-judge BVIS.

Long head, dark expressive eyes, strong convex neck flowing into well laid back shoulders. Just beginning to show his age on the move now. Both dogs in very good overall condition and were a credit to their owners & breeders.

A very promising puppy & with agreement of my co-judge BPIS.

3rd Wheatman's Mirdale the Mindbender
This was a particularly difficult class with some high quality dogs going unplaced. At this highest level of competition dogs must be in top condition, correct weight & presented to best advantage. There were some unplaced dogs that on another day could be & I am sure will be worthy winners. Thank you to all exhibitors for the opportunity of judging their dogs.

colour & rust markings of correct size. Strong boned with short back & deep chest.
Correct angulation front & rear. Very good long head with parallel planes, correct
dentition with large teeth. Eyes of medium colour, correct almond shape & expressive. Neck could be drier but flows into well laid back shoulder. Moved soundly with a long balanced stride. Worthy CC winner & RBIS.
2nd Connolly's Chancepixies Legend - Smart black of medium size. Short hard glossy coat & with well conditioned muscles. Compact & well angulated. Deep chest with well developed forechest. Head could be slightly more masculine but has correct dentition, dark expressive eyes & small neat ears positioned correctly. With sound limbs and tight feet he moved with balance and style. Serious contender for RCC.
