GCB (1) 1 Macartney’s Ivrig Dancing In The Sun, this bitch had a nice eye and expression. She had a good hard coat though a bit short, she carried a good top line and went around the ring well.

 

I must say that I was very pleased with the overall entry and the quality there and most of the dogs were presented in pristine condition there were a few that were a little chunky, but overall everyone was very fit. I must say I was very impressed by the mouths on all of the dogs, I think you have a done a much better job of dealing with bites than we have in the states! Thank you again for the beautiful entry.
