Critique: A lot to like about this super showgirl. Totally feminine, nothing exaggerated, plenty of breed type. Cracking head and expression. Forequarters clean and muscular with straight well boned forelegs. Muscular and well developed hindquarters. Balanced and sound on the move. Handled expertly. Strong contender for top honours.

03.08.09, Paignton Ch show
Judge: Mike Caple
Result: 1st in Junior

Critique: Top quality daughter of Adam and Rangi. Well put together, projected a super outline, lovely head and expression, reachy neck, super front and infill, well laid shoulders & firm topline, good underline, deep brisket & strong loin. Can perhaps strengthen a touch behind. Looking good for her age & should go onto better things.

25.07.09, Leeds Ch show
Judge: Lyn Hewson
Result: 1st in Junior

Critique: A super wheaten that I have long admired as even without handling, her qualities are apparent. Confident at 16 months old with lovely balanced head and typical expression. Good reach of neck, correct lay of shoulder, deep chest with good infill to forechest. Firm in topline, correctly angulated quarters. Well off for bone and substance. Standing she presents a lovely outline. Her movement is free although I was disappointed that her hind movement was not more positive.

19.07.09, Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Ch show
Judge: Toni Agnew
Result: 1st in Junior

Critique: Hard to fault this girl, has strength in head without compromising her femininity, good dark eyes, ears of correct size and shape, well shaped neck to textbook front assembly, great body shape though her underline was a little soft. Well constructed and toned rear quarters gave a good driving action, won this class with room to spare, decided she had done enough when it came to the challenge, what a pity.
