Darlington 2019

Judge  Mrs L. Marston

I would like to thank all the exhibitors who entered under me. Overall temperaments were all good, all had required double dewclaws, though some were not as strong and developed as I would have liked. Dentition was good on some and just passable on others. I was very pleased with the quality of all my class winners. 

VD (1) Greenfield’s Ch Gillandant Shakeelah. One I have always liked. Nearly 9 yrs and still looking fit for purpose, lovely head and eye, good coat and conformation, excellent topline held on the move. BV.
