What a lovely puppy – I wish she was mine! Sweetest feminine head with good dark pigment. Very well presented cream coat. Plenty of bone and good feet. Such a beautiful balanced outline with excellent front angulation and strong level topline. Good well angulated quarters from which she moved with a long free stride. I was delighted to award her BEST PUPPY IN SHOW.

Mrs Ward's critique of Skye read:
Pearson & Handley’s Giltedge Dreamgirl. Quality cream. Never put a foot
wrong. Had left her best dress at home but not hiding her good conformation.
Not a big girl. Sweet head. Straight front good shoulder lay and heartroom.Moved with drive and purpose. In hard condition
We look forward to her continued success in the show ring throughout 2009 when she returns to the ring.
