1. Pleasance Katakia’s One Step Beyond, appealing 9mth short bodied and compact female hooded Brindle pied. Good sized skull, well-rounded cheeks, clear dark eyes with a well-padded foreface. Good width of jaw, good-sized nose, well placed with sufficient nostrils. Moved soundly and to her natural width in the front. Sufficient bone, compact paws with short nails.
1. Brooks & Cairns Corursus Become the One, 11mth well-marked Brindle male, a nicely balanced boy from all angles. Well boned, good lay of shoulder into straight forearms to compact tight feet with short black nails. Skull of good size, with dark expressive dark eyes. Correctly sized ears of good set and shape. Move extremely well, light on his feet covering the ground well. Shapely body with the correct natural rise to topline. In suitable body condition for age, he just needs to mature to fill his frame, but I couldn’t deny him BOB & BP.

1. Pleasance Katakia Numero One, 2 yr old hooded Brindle pied bitch. Short bodied of good size. Shapely body due to well-sprung ribs, correct topline and matching underline. Well developed, strong front, sufficient bone, straight forearms to neat feet. A little beefy in the thigh, lost out to BOB on the strength of rear movement but worthy RBOB.
