REPORT ON HOUND VETERAN GROUP
1st. Ridge-Reeves’ – Ch. Donskoi Tallin. 7.5 year old white & fawn Borzoi. Well-constructed, balanced hound of good size. Masculine head, good depth of chest, lovely topline & good fallaway. Well-muscled throughout, he moved true out & back with an effortless stride in profile.
2nd. Moore & Coverley’s – Ch & IrCh. Ex Sentia I’m Bond James Bond. Stunning Wire Haired Dachshund boy of 9.5 years. Typey boy of a good size, he is well balanced, has a lovely head, eye & expression. He has a super topline & hindquarters, sound as a pound & a real showman.
3rd. Ellrich’s – Ch. Malrich Sir Ruff Diamond. 8.5 year old red & white Basset boy who is all male. Stunning head, good neck into clean forehand, well ribbed back with good depth of chest & level topline. He is well muscled & was shown in excellent condition, moved soundly with reach & drive.
4th. Ganna’s – Ch & IrCh. Keepcott Florin. I loved this Otterhound lady when she hit the ring as a puppy & was delighted that 8 years later I have had the pleasure of judging her. This beautiful girl has textbook construction with coat & conditioning to match. Her head is exquisite, she has a super forehand, topline, tailset & hindquarters which she used to power herself round the ring. So sound & true I loved her!
Special mention must go to the Podengo Arranbourne Amoroso, who at 12.5 years old showed some of the youngsters how to show.
