SOUTH WALES KENNEL ASSOCIATION. 6TH OCTOBER. 2017 HOUND GROUP JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

I SHOULD LIKE TO THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR THEIR INVITATION TO JUDGE THE HOUND GROUP AT THIS VERY WELL RUN SHOW.

IN MY OPINION THIS WAS A STRONG GROUP BUT I WAS SURPRISED AS SOME DIRTY TEETH AND ALSO DOGS IN NEED OF HAVING THEIR NAILS CUT WHICH SPOILT THE LOOK AND SHAPE OF THE FEET.

HAVING SAID THIS I COULD HAVE SHORT LISTED A FEW MORE, BUT THOSE THAT MADE MY SHORT LIST AS WELL AS MY SUBSEQUENT WINNERS WERE GBGV CH/IR/ CH TARMACHAN CARTIER. WIRE HAIRED DACHSHUND TENDROW I AM THE ONE FROM COLLIDACH. GREYHOUND CH BOUGHTON BRIGADIER SH CM . OTTERHOUND CH TECKELGARTH MIMI AND WHIPPET CH COLLOONEY TARTAN TEASE JW

HAVING MOVED THEM ALL AGAIN I SIMPLY COULD NOT DENY MY WINNER THE TOP SPOT

CH SOLETRADER MAGIC MIKE. BASSET GRIFFON VENDEEN (PETIT) (MRS S & MRS W ROBERTSON & DOHERTY) THIS DOG OOZES TYPE AND ALSO THE TRUE “HAPPY” CHARACTER OF THIS BREED. A LOVELY HEAD WITH CORRECT EARS AND SUPER DARK EYE. WELL CONSTRUCTED THROUGHOUT AND A LOVELY THICK TAIL OF CORRECT SET AND LENGTH. HE HAS AN EXCELLENT JACKET. OWNED THE RING WITH HIS STYLISH MOVEMENT.

GROUP 2 IT/FR CH KARISHMA DELLA BASSA PAVESE IRISH WOLFHOUND (DR L SALAMON) THIS BITCH JUST ENTERED THE RING WITH SUCH NOBLE STYLE. FABULOUS HEAD AND EYE. GOOD NECK AND BODY AND IN WONDERFUL MUSCLED CONDTION WHICH SHOWED IN HER SOUND MOVEMENT. UNLUCKY TO MEET MY WINNER TODAY AND WITH HER GREAT STRIDE WOULD BENEFIT FROM A HUGE RING TO POWER ROUND

GROUP 3 CH DIALYNNE PETER PIPER BEAGLE (MISS M SPAVIN) SUPER YOUNG DOG OF EXCELLENT TYPE.. ANOTHER ONE WITH A SUPER HEAD AND EYE AND SOUNDLY MADE. STRONG HINDQUARTERS WHICH HE USES SO WELL, JUST A TAD UNSETTLED IN FRONT MOVEMENT IN THE FINAL RUN UP.

GROUP 4 SAXONMILL RUM TUM RICOCHET( JW) AFGHAN HOUND (MRS R HALL) THIS LOVELY DOG CAUGHT MY EYE AS HE ENTERED THE RING . CORRECT AFGHAN MOVEMENT. LOVELY HEAD NECK AND SHAPE. GOOD STRONG LEGS AND FEET AND SHOWN IN SUPER CONDITION. MUST HAVE A VERY BRIGHT FUTURE. DESERVED HIS WIN TODAY.
