Critique from the September '08 NSW Golden Retriever Show

1st Australian Bred Dog

Aust Ch Dobro Samuari Guy (Sam is Monty's Dad)
Balanced, symmetrical with a fabulous outline, soft masculine head and a soft kindly expression. Straight front with well sprung ribs, well developed hindquarters and good round bone and cat feet, moved well with drive, a super exhibit.

2nd Australian Bred Dog

Aust Ch Fantango First Knight (Monty)
A super exhibit, pushed 1 harder than you might think. Loved him for his expression and kind eye. Level topline. Well made in the hindquarter. Shown in super coat

2nd Veteran Dog

Aust Ch Xanthos Fletcher Chtistian JW (Imp UK) (Fletcher is Buffy's Dad)
Balanced and symmetrical impressive dog caught my attention with his active and animated powerful movement. Straight front and cat like feet. Good length of scapula and matching length of upper arm – part of the reason for the reach of forehand. Moved satisfactorily for his age.

3rd Australian Bred Bitch

Dobro Flying Higher (Buffy)
Interesting exhibit in many ways. Soft femmine head and kindly expression. With good chiselling around the skull. Level topline and moved satisfactorily.
