TALIESIN'S REALTBHVION. HP399745/02. 03/07/11. breeder: Donna Smith & David Smith. By CH Taliesin's Suailce, JC - Taliesin's Wylde Rum Runner. owner: Donna & David Smith.

Good length of leg, adequate bone, and a lovely head and expression. He has a nice topline and good shoulder layback. This is a very well balanced puppy, especially for this age. BEST OPPOSITE IN SWEEPS.

  2.

DUN MYRICA NO FOOLIN' EAGLE OF ARD RHI. HP407384/02. 04/01/11. breeder: Sam Houston McDonald. By CH Dun Myrica Speaker Of Eagle - CH Garlow Neesha Of Eagle. owner: Linda King.

Really nice bone and gave the first place puppy a real challenge. Nicely balanced, gave out a little bit at the end today. I think this will be a dog to watch in the future, I look forward to seeing all these pups grow up.

  3.

RIVERSONG'S PEACE AND LOVE. HP400630/05. 01/14/11. breeder: Cynthia Patterson & Dave Patterson & Sue McClure. By CH Caraglen Travis McGee - Riversong Pardon My Heart. owner: Julia Green and Cynthia Patterson.

At the upper age limit for the class and is showing a bot of the "ganglies"! However, he has good length of leg and a very nice front assembly. I expect this boy to mature into a very nice dog.

TALIESIN'S DEA-MHIOTAIL. HP396890/02. 01/26/11. breeder: Donna Smith & David Smith. By GCH.CAN.CH Taliesin's Willow's Glympse - Taliesin's Lasairiona. owner: Donna & David Smith.

Like the puppy in 3rd, this puppy is all legs right now. A little less curvy than the others in the class, still nicely balanced. All four puppies in this class have dark pigment and lovely heads and expression which is especially nice on this light wheaten

O'LUGH'S GIBBS OF AERIE. HP394081/04. 10/26/10. breeder: Doug Marx & Amy Benjamin. By CH Pitlochry's Keystone - CH Gordan Of Aerie. owner: A. & M. Dormady and A. Benjamin.

This boy made his handler work for it in this large class, he was determined to not stand still! Nice ground covering movement, good bone and length of leg. I would like a little more spring of rib which will hopefully come with age.

  2.

GATHER OF AERIE. HP394081/03. 10/26/10. breeder: Doug Marx & Amy Benjamin. By CH Pitlochry's Keystone - CH Gordon Of Aerie. owner: Shari Irick.

Another long legged easy mover. Slightly less curve than #1 with a slightly softer coat. Nice bone, very similar the dog ahead of him and as it turns out a littermate.

  3.

REDTOPS HEARTHSIDE RONAN AT AENLIC. HP398305/04. 11/27/10. breeder: Rosemary E. Wortman. By CH Caragen Travis McGee - Brenniams Redtop Virginia Rose. owner: J. Laughton and C. Guilfoyle, G. Laughton, J. Todd.

Also littermates, both these boys are slightly smaller than #1 & 2, but very well balanced. #3 has a better front assembly than his brother, both are very sound easy movers. Both dogs have beautiful dark eyes and pigment, and nice hard coats. I think these two will be slow to mature but show great promise.

Well proportioned and balanced with moderate angulation. Topline is better on the move or when standing naturally, tends to flatten when hand stacked. Nice movement, slightly upright in the pasterns. Good pigment and a nice expression. Would prefer a better ear.

This was the class with the greatest depth of quality today. A really nice young bitch, this girl caught my eye when she entered the ring. This girl moved with ease on nice long legs. I would like her to get more spring of rib, but overall she is a well balanced bitch that I look forward to seeing grow up.

Rounding out the class, another really nice young bitch. This girl is similar to the ones ahead of her, just slight less together at this teenage stage. A wheaten with a beautiful head and expression. I would be proud to claim any of these bitches, they all had the misfortune of being in the same class.
