DOG CLASS RESULTS ~ Judge ~ Kate MacDuff (Torridonian) 

On behalf of my family and friends I would like to thank All the committee for a 
fabulous weekend. All the hard work, time and effort from everyone involved in
making  this advent such a well organised, smoothly run show. We loved every
bit of the show stayed until the show closed will definitely be back for next years 
weekend. Once again many thanks.
The dogs on whole I found were of good quality (ie my principle winners) but in
between I found lack of bone, substance and height, also some erratic movement.
Lastly but by no means least - handling.  For some maybe it's time to go back to
the basic's to learn how to present your dog to show it off to its best ability.

heading in the right direction. Head developing nicely. Compact well-made body,
