 - thanks, Jo for the photo !

The judge says:
"...top quality golden lady who is wearing her years very well.
My notes say very near to the standard with superb head and expression, 
best of legs and feet, short deep well developed body and well muscled quarters
which she used to power here round the ring, presented in excellent
coat and condition, made the last four for consideration in the challenge."

the judge's critique - "Just loved this golden bitch, down to my final shortlist for the CC.
Superb presentation.   A true merry cocker, really moved with purpose.   Exquisite head and
tight dark eye.   Well balanced, great depth throughout, lovely neck and
shoulders, deep chest, well sprung ribs, short. Should do well in the future."
