Junior Handling 12-16yrs
Lewis Fraser (12). This young man has to be complimented on his patience and professionalism. He was handling a 6 month old puppy who to say was naughty was putting it mildly!! At no time did he hurry his charge, but with kindness and gentleness he managed to get the better of the rascal while all the time speaking kindly to her. Well done, I wish you the best of luck for the future and will be watching to see how you progress.

Well worth the long trip from Inverness. Top notch bitch of great type. I liked her overall balance and proportions - up on leg which I like. She has good bone and substance. Lovely head, strong underjaw. Good expression. Strong front and excellent forechest. Good topline and a balanced rear. Very good coat. Moves well, although a little excess weight shows a little. Well deserved the Reserve CC.
