Crufts news is that Kobo ( Leokings Too Much Temptation at Hillhaven ) travelled across and had a great day out taking his huge Limit Class and then clinching Reserve Best Leonberger Male with the Res Challenge certificate! Congratulations to his owners . His critique was from Judge Kathy Hay, a Leonberger specialist with many years in the breed.
LD (16) 1 Leokings Too Much Temptation for Hillhaven (Moore) Lovely head with good dark mask, good eye shape and ear set, nice length of neck going into well laid shoulders, nice tight feet. Good rear angulation, He went round the ring with good reach and drive, still retaining elegance of movement and maintaining a firm level top line, really filled the eye. Shown in super coat. I was pleased to award him the res CC.
