PD(2) 1 Thompson's Aurealis Merlinite. Tall puppy, 11 mths, good overall shape, head developing well, nice expression, good front, level topline though a little rangey at this stage, moved soundly. 2 Thompson's Aurealis Okenite. Litter brother to first, similar in many aspects though heavier in build and in better coat, was not moving as well as his brother today.

PGD
(3) 1 Greenfield's Gillandant Shekeelah. Really liked this young dog though not the biggest of males, he has a lovely typical head, tight dark almond shaped eyes set correctly giving a lovely expression, excellent pigmentation, tight lips, level topline, balanced angulation, good outline, needs a little more time to body up and a little out of coat today, moved very well. 2 Holmes' Lisjovia Shakey Byrne JW ShCM. Tall, well balanced young dog with plenty of substance, liked his size and presence, in excellent coat, good bone, well ribbed with good depth of chest, correct angulation, moved soundly, just preferred head and expression of first. 3 Nelson's Gillandant Sensationalist.

LD

Elegant young dog full of himself today, nothing overdone, typical Pyrenean head, gentle expression, excellent pigmentation, balanced angulation, good straight front, level topline held on the move, coat not fully back, which showed in the challenge. RCC. 2 Smith &Flounders' Brulola Spirit In The Sky For Lakamoni.

CC, BOB. So pleased to see him take G3. 2 Meakin's Jazanah Jaunty. One I have liked in the past and have not changed my opinion, very sound and typical Pyrenean, good masculine head, lovely expression, strong neck and topline, good bone, well bodied, moved very soundly in good coat, but not the presentation of first.
