SOUTH EASTERN WELSH SPRINGER SPANIEL CLUB

OCTOBER 14TH 2007

 

I thoroughly enjoyed my day and would like to thank all the exhibitors. Temperament and presentation were excellent throughout but lack of size and substance in some classes concerns me.They are a dual-purpose breed and I felt these dogs would not take a hard day in the field.

 

MINOR PUPPY DOG 6(1abs)

1††††††††† Deansís MENSTONIA MIST CHANCE OVER PASONDELA. Well proportioned puppy, good reach of neck, compact with good bend of stifle and nice feet. Very balanced on the move for 6 months.
