1 Rock's Bohamer Blue Storm. Two 7 mth old littermates challenged here. The winner was this 7 mth blue/tan dog who I thought extremely promising. He excelled for type, is good for size and so well balanced. Neck of moderate length, firm topline, deep and narrow in chest with good length to ribcage, strong loin and tail just right for set and carriage. Most attractive head with moderate breadth to skull, dark expressive eyes, ears good for size and set, short strong muzzle and correct dentition. Straight forelegs and standing on super feet. Well made hindquarters with good muscling. Good texture to jacket and desired thick skin. Moving well with nice self carriage. Best Dog & BOB. Looked the part in the Group where I was delighted to see him shortlisted and understand he also took Puppy Group 4.
2 Rock's Bohamer Breeze. Grizzle/tan litter sister to the winner. Feminine girl who has lots to like but needs a little more schooling to get the best from here. She also presented a nicely balanced outline with neck of moderate length, firm topline, pleasing rib, strong loin and tail of correct set and carriage. She stands well naturally on good feet and moves freely. Feminine head with good eye and ear but needs to fill out below the eye. Best Bitch.
1 Orr's Sheabhoy Just For You. 18 mth grizzle/tan bitch of good size and nicely balanced. Neck of moderate length, firm topline, good length to ribcage, strong loin and tail good for set and carriage. Nice breadth to skull, good eye for shape and colour, fair ears, short strong muzzle and good dentition. She moves freely on the down and back but somewhat restricted when viewed in profile. Good texture to jacket. Reserve Best Bitch.
