Judge's Critique of Holly’s first Challenge Certificate (CC) by Mrs Angela Pedder


Limit Bitch (3) 1st : Smith's Auldhelm Xquisite ShCM. My notes simply say "loved her". Full of quality yet completely understated, this girl could easily be overlooked. Lovely to go over, with standard fitting conformation throughout encompassing all that is needed to effectively do the job for which the PWD was originally bred. Combining strength with substance yet with nothing exaggerated or overdone, she ticked most of my boxes and the icing on the cake for me was watching her move out with such a typical gait without any fuss or drama. And the more I moved her, the better she went. Was pleased to award her and her delighted owner the CC, which I understand is their first. Congratulations.

Holly:  Irish Champion 2018

By the end of  2018 Holly had won 7 Irish Green Stars to earn  Irish Champion status.
