Regional Golden Retriever Specialty Show

1st in class
reserve winner's dog and best puppy in specialty show (BPISS)

Comment from judge: Well balanced, short coupled puppy in lovely coat and just oozing personality.
Sailed round the ring with a dead level topline and perfect tail carriage. This one is here for the long haul, not on a daytrip!

A real star in the making, delighted to see him take Best Puppy in Breed and also Reserve Winners Dog under the main judge.
