The first championship show of 2017 was Manchester and, at only 21 months of age, Tia proved that she is more than ready to step up and challenge for the main awards. Under respected Norwegian judge Espen Engh, Tia won her first CC, topping it off with BOB and her first appearance in the group ring. Commended by the judge for her outstanding quality, we feel sure that this is the first of many such appearances for this beautiful young bitch.
The judge's critique reads: Very attractive, typy bitch, making a lovely overall impression, the star of the day. Quality, well chiselled head. Well set ears of medium size. Excellent neck which she used to her advantage both standing & moving. Balanced angulation in front & behind, very good length of leg. Firm topline, not the shortest of backs, but short enough for balance & competition. Well set & carried tail. Beautiful coat & colour. She had a lot of energy & was not always easy for the handler to restrain, but most of the time moved really well, especially using her hindquarters to her advantage. To me she stood out in the entry, & I was very happy to have the pleasure of judging her & awarding her the CC & BOB
