17/01/09 - Della winning 4th in the Utility Group at Manchester under Mike Gilchrist

"The Dalmatian, Ch Sophtspot Snap Crackle n Pop. A carriage dog that is undoubtedly fit for purpose, beautifully muscled everywhere, and movement that is ground covering, rhythmic and free. Enough femininity to indicate gender, but sufficient substance to give evidence of function. Perhaps needing a little more maturity to finish the picture but the finished item will be very worthwhile to see." Mike Gilchrist
