BEAGLES

Thank you to everyone who entered today, especially so close to Christmas. A very pleasing entry with some lovely dogs.

Junior Dog or Bitch (2, 1abs)

1. Richmond's Canowindra Calliope of Dufosee - Sweet blanket tri bitch of 15 months. Correct bite and dark eye. Well set leathers and

great length of neck leading into good shoulders. Topline level and firm. Neat feet, short coupled and correct tailset. She was a little

unsettled at times but moves well once she relaxes.

Post Graduate Dog or Bitch (3, 0abs)

1. Stoddard & Spavin's Dialynne Cover Story - Handsome 18 month old tri male. Great head, correct bite and well set leathers.

Topline level, deep chest and good ribbing. Pasterns short and hocks firm. Constructed lovely throughout with well laid shoulders, good length of upper arm

and well bent stifles. This boy really excels in movement, parallel coming and going and he moves so freely with great reach and drive

earning him his well deserved RBOB. Just needs to mature a little more and i'm sure he will do very well.

2. Keyte & Keepence's Lanesend Chicha for Alandobel - 4 year old tri bitch, smaller mould than 1. Compact girl. Pretty head, correct bite and good length

of neck. Great fore construction with shoulders well laid back. Forelegs straight and well underneath her. Topline firm and short coupled.

Lovely muscle throughout, she could definatly do a days work. Moves out well but just prefered the reach and drive of 1 today.

3. Heywood's Davricard Harmony for Trackfoot.

Open Dog or Bitch (5, 1abs)

1. Phillips & Keyte's Lanesend Segenhoe JW ShCM - Gorgeous 2 year old tri male. Presented a lovely, eye catching outline and going over him

didn't disappoint. Classic beagle head with soft expression. Good length of neck leading into well laid shoulders. Topline firm and level.

Forelegs straight and tight feet. Well ribbed, short coupled and correct tailset. Stifles well bent, hocks firm and parallel. He is so sound in all directions

on the move and it was a pleasure to award him BOB, handled perfectly to this win as well. Delighted to hear he went on to win the Hound Group

and RBIS! Congratulations!

2. Caple's Tregoniggie Colour of Magic at Morsefield JW ShCM - Feminine, 2 year old open tri bitch. Same sire as 1 and shares some good traits.

Would have prefered a slightly darker eye to finish an otherwise beautiful head. Leathers well set and correct bite. Great length of neck and shoulder lay.

Balanced construction fore and aft. Chest deep and good ribbing. Topline firm and level. Great feet, stifles well bent and hocks firm. Pushed for higher

awards, just a little unsettled on the move today but she keeps good distance behind and moves with great reach and drive.

3. Stoddard's Tarnry Florance at Poppyville.
