Judges Critique

Absolutely gorgeous girl, who still has very much to offer I’m sure, an outstanding head and expression, super level topline and a gorgeous tailset. Won this class on her excellent movement. Delighted to award her BP Really liked her and would like to see her as an adult.

ABBEYTON ANGEL'S KISS

(awaiting photo)

Ellie attended Richmond Championship show 8th September 2006.
She was placed 2nd in Puppy Bitch being beaten only by her litter sister.
As this was only Ellie's 2nd champ show I was very pleased with how she handled the 10 hour bus journey (yes I went on a bus) to the show. She never stopped wagging her tail, trying to say "hello" to everyone and of course the usual when showing on grass, me trying to keep her nose off the ground became a game to her.

Well done Ellie, you made me realise that there is more to showing than the perfect pose. Fun does come into it. xx
