BASSET GRIFFON VENDÉEN (GRAND)

PD (2) Two very different types 1 Buchanan & MacLaren’s Macaroni v Tum-Tum’s Vriendjes of Tarmachan (Imp NLD) Of larger mould and still with plenty of maturing to do. Good overall proportions, noble head with good length supple leathers, inward curl. Well balanced, tight front, good length of ribcage. Strong quarters with moderate stifle. Tail well carried when on move. BP. Short-listed in Puppy Group. 2 Weymouth’s Soufriere Now I’m Here at Woolybassets Nice head with good dome, good shaped muzzle, correct length leathers, neat front with sufficient bone, would have preferred longer ribcage and slightly harsher coat. Tight feet, correct topline carried well.

JD (1) Machent & Milton’s Tioga Lautrec with Grandoreille Promising youngster. Pleasing head with dark enough eye, supple good length ears, prominent occiput, square muzzle. Clean, good length and strong neck, prominent sternum. Good shoulders, tight neat feet, ribs carried well back, level topline with slight rise over loin on move and well carried tail. Good reach and front extension. Correct hind movement. RDCC

OD (1) Makey’s Gairside Good Lord JW ShCM One I have admired since a young puppy and did not disappoint. Overall well balanced, excellent harsh coat, tight front, ribs carried well back. Good muzzle, stop and occiput, nice dark eye and nose with open nostrils. Good ear-set. Strong quarters. Handled and moved well, carrying level topline with imperceptible rise over loin on move. Powerful hind movement. DCC

PB (2) Again two different types, though both carrying pleasing breed points 1 Marshall’s Soufriere One Vision Well presented, feminine head, dark eye, good shape to muzzle. Strong tight, true front. Shorter on leg than 2. Neat, tight feet. Ribbing good. Nicely shaped hindquarters, good length tail, carried well on move. 2 Moult’s Zamdilsa Trick or Treat Well-proportioned young bitch. Dark, oval eye and good leathers, muzzle a tad narrow. Good length of neck and prominent sternum. Good topline into well set tail but would prefer longer ribcage. Well handled, moved true though preferred rear movement to front.

JB (1) 1 Milton’s Wilmit Independence Day Correctly proportioned, nicely made young bitch with good harsh coat. Correct length muzzle though a little narrow, nice dark eye. Strong, straight front with good shoulder placement, prominent sternum, well ribbed, tight feet. Muscled hindquarters. Slight rise over muscled loin when moving, tail carriage OK when settled into her stride.

PGB (1) Cooper’s Debucher Ivanka Jayanel Overall good balance. Pleasing, feminine head with correct proportions. Dark eye. Long neck set into well laid shoulders. Tight feet. Good front and topline. Moderate stifle. Moved well when settled.

LB (3) 1 Moult’s Debucher Zamba ShCM Good head and pigment with correct overall proportions, well developed forechest and good, tight front with correct shoulder placement. Well-muscled rear with moderate stifle. True and easy movement with good tail carriage. 2 Marshall’s Silvamoon Saffron at Soufriere Correct length foreface. Oval eye with calm expression. Leathers of good length. Coat not in quite the same condition as 1. Carried topline well on move. Good front though a little close behind. 3 Milton’s Ethos In The Cloud with Wilmit (Imp USA).

OB (5) 1 Buchanan & MacLaren’s Tarmachan Ice Diamond Lovely outline, with good height to length ratio and very balanced all through. Nicely shaped feminine head with strong underjaw, prominent occiput, dark, oval eye. Good ear-set and fold to leathers. Tight front, good shoulder placement, ribs moderately rounded. Good shape, set and length of tail, carried well on move. A most pleasing type. BCC & BOB. 2 Buchanan & MacLaren’s Ch/Ir Ch Tarmachan Florentine Well-presented bitch. Feminine head with calm expression, good shaped dark eye, fine well-shaped leathers. Good occiput. Preferred the muzzle shape of 1. Prominent sternum and good length of neck leading into well laid shoulders, straight front. Harsh coat. Well balanced throughout. Good front and hind movement with correct tail carriage. 3 Makey’s Ch Gairside Good Gracious.

VB (1) 1 O’Day’s Ch Silvamoon Sweet Sapphire ShCM At nearly 10yrs old, a credit to her owner. Overall lovely balance and in hard condition. Pleasing head with correct length foreface and slight roman nose. Oval eye with calm expression. Strong bone, straight front, good sternum and depth of chest.
