Bitch Critique: David Mannings (Gatchells)
A very strong entry on a very hot day. I was looking for angulation, balance, femininity and movement. I was very pleased to find this in nearly all of my classes. The heat affected the movement of some of the bitches, with tails not raised to topline in some cases spoiling the flowing movement I was looking for.
Watching my CC. winner move was a joy for me as it was exactly what I hoped to find
