Hungarian Wirehaired Vizslas
A thoroughly enjoyable day with some lovely dogs from this exquisite breed. My gratitude to the exhibitors for spending their hard earned cash entering under me and, whilst they came for my opinion, they all left with the best dog. I am sorry that some were confused about the top awards. Under K.C. rule F (1) 3.53, 7, Awards, one only has to declare a best of each sex when there are separate classes for dogs and bitches. As my classes were mixed there was a BOB, Best Opposite Sex and Best Puppy. Grateful thanks to my very efficient steward for explaining this to the exhibitors and those at the ring side.
JUNIOR - Dog or Bitch (6, 3 abs)
Three very nice youngsters.
1st. Stafford’s Farnfield Cock Robin. Well up to size. Striking 12 mths dog with noble head and the kindest eye. Strong arched neck, well developed pro-sternum and good straight front. Well ribbed up and powerful back end which he used to dominate the ring on the move. Harsh, wire, russet gold coat. BOS.
2nd. Lovell’s Ayita Prada. Very well balanced 8 mths bitch. Carrying a nice beard and mid-gold coloured harsh jacket. Moderate length of neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Animated, ground covering gait. BP.
3rd. Lawson’s Riannor Lenci. Shows a lot of promise. Just at that ‘legs and wings’ stage. Has all the qualities to make a very nice one.
POST GRAD - Dog or Bitch (2, 0)
1st. Parry’s Leiborschy Lajka. Robustly built bitch. Close fitting, russet coat. Balanced head of correct proportions. Good lay of shoulder and moderate spring of rib. Moved OK.
2nd. Turton’s Blamtrinever Bewitching. Longer cast than 1 and not got the head proportions. Strong neck, well laid shoulders, correct tail set and good feet.
OPEN - Dog or Bitch (7, 0)
1st. Parry’s Leiborschy Yendah. Displays all the breed type one could wish for. The standard for this breed calls for moderation all through and this lovely bitch is a picture of moderation without being in any way ordinary. She is beautifully balanced, feminine and distinguished. Correct length to height ratio. Golden sand wire coat with correct undercoat. Used her strong hind quarters to really drive from behind and covered plenty of ground. One I have done well for before so no surprise that she was BOB.
2nd. Holman’s Silvanus Oh Oh Seven. Dog with a really melting expression. Preferred him in head to 3 and was in better coat. Tail set rather low and carried too high. Not the animation of the BOS.
3rd. Guest’s Bardantop Rochester. A favourite of mine who was just not looking his best today. Nevertheless, has lots of breed type.
