MPD (3, 1) 1 Meakin's Amandjena Carson Nevada. Just 6 months old and coping with the shows very well. Nice clean head, good topline and straight front, He stands true and moves with ease. 2 Meakin's Amandjena Cleveland Ohio. Another nice 6 month old, similar in make and shape as first, he looks ok standing but not as positive on the move as first.

PD
(4, 1) 1 Ford's Desalazara Fernando. A very promising 10 months old so well made in bone and body without being over done. Liked his powerful neck and good body shape all well covered. He makes the most of standing and did not disappoint on the move, at the moment just has the edge over his litter sister to win the BP. 2, Wilcock's Penellcy Guard Of Honour, lovely well set dark eyes and nice pigmentation. Nice overall body shape , he stacks well unhurried on the move but not the drive as first. 


JD
(2, 1) 1 Downes' Pyrpressure's My American Dream. Just out of puppy, he has good head qualities and expression. Going through that in-between stage of coats, I would like more bone and body.
