South Eastern Hound Club

Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit)

Junior 1

1st Mouldings Nykarth Perfect Moment. 8month bitch, unfortunately a little spooked by the tannoy today. Good expression, dark eye, excellent bite, ears good length and set, prominent forechest, good length of neck. Angulation good throughout although topline could be better. A little long in the loin for me. Tail set good but carriage low as not happy today BP

Post Graduate 1

1st Hunts Soletrader Buzz Aldrin at Bondlea. Compact 22 month dog with excellent pigment throughout. Pleasing expression from correct head shape, ear set and length correct. Good neck and shoulders, well muscled throughout. Front angulation excellent, decent bend of stifle. Topline excellent and held on the move. Tail set and carriage good. Plentiful harsh coat which detracted from his overall outline. Moved with great drive. BOB

Open 2(1)

1st Mouldings Wizzkarth Meant To Be. 4 yo bitch. Another well pigmented example of the breed. Head shape correct, correct bite, ear length correct. Forechest could be stronger. Well angulated throughout. Coat texture excellent. Topline level and held on the move. Tail set correct and carried well. A contender for BOB but ultimately too long in the loin for me. RBOB

Basset Griffon Vendeen (Grand)

Junior 1

1st Marshalls Soufriere One Vision. Head correct shape. Pigmentation excellent. Ear set and length correct. Excellent reach of neck into well laid shoulder. Prominent forechest, ribs extending well back. Excellent rear angulation. Topline level and held well on the move. Tail set excellent and carried well once settled. Coat sparse but texture good. Showed drive once settled. A very promising 6month bitch. BOB & BP

Open 1

1st Marshalls Silvamoon Saffron at Soufriere. Solid 4yo bitch, dam to BOB. Head correct, ear set and length correct. Shorter in neck than BOB and slightly down on pasterns in front. Ribs extending well back. Rear angulation good. Tail set a little low. Coat softer than junior. RBOB
