Newlin Kismet for Salenko wins Best Puppy Bitch at the Scottish Beagle Club Open Show from judge Mr Dick Morrison. Kizzy was beaten by her litter brother, Newlin Kestrel to win Best Puppy in Show. Well done Kes!!

 

"Ultra feminine girl, loved her size, build and
outgoing personality, very nice expression, good reach of neck, tidy front and rear assemblies, I thought her outline when she settled was A1, she stands free standing and when she moves out she covers the ground effortlessly with good drive and excellent front reach keeping a level topline BPB and only pipped for BPIS by her more mature brother, one I would campaign as she is a delight"
