Welsh Kennel Club

Breed: Beagle


My first time awarding CC’s in this breed. I was delighted that my BOB won the group under a Beagle specialist. The BP also did me proud taking PG2 . I was also delighted to learn that the majority of my top winners and more class winners were very closely related being sired by the same dog which has been imported from America. Obviously he is siring consistently to various lines and kennels. As I expected, in this breed, the depth of quality was reasonably strong. An interesting and enjoyable entry to judge.

OD (5 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 1386 JONES & JEPSON Messrs T & S Ch Eardley Les Canoodle. So filled my eye from his compact shape and balance to his attractive masculine head.

Out moved the rest of the entry. CC & BOB and G1.

2nd: 1346 BINKS Mrs L Agnes Love From Tannahill. Good type, very attractive. Just too excitable to knuckle down to the job in hand. Her movement was just lacking precision because she was enjoying herself. I’m sure she’ll have better days when she calms down.
