Carluke & District Canine Society

WHIPPET

Thank you to the Society for inviting me to judge Whippets. I had a lovely, quality, entry. This combined with the great venue and good catering, really made for a super day. The icing on the cake was to watch my Best Of Breed go RBIS and BSPIS.

Puppy (4)

1. Aarminias Luv The Way You Lie - 9 month old brindle dog. A stunning young puppy who is so smooth to go over. Masculine head with correct bite, ears and a nice amount of under jaw. Lovely length of neck leading to well laid shoulders and good return of upper arm. Bladed bone, excellent pasterns and neat feet. Curvy topline, with just a nice amount of rise over the loin. Good underline, correct tail set and great hind angulation This young chap should be called Luv The Way You Move! His true and effortless daisy cutting action won him the class and Best Of Breed. He really is one to watch. Not only did he take the HG1 and Special PG1 but went on to RBIS and BPIS.   

2. Lucrezia Lysandra Synergy (IMP POL) - 7 month old brindle bitch. Another lovely youngster. A very pretty bitch, with the most appealing expression, correct bite and neat ears. Lovely length of neck and smooth well laid shoulders. Nice curvy top and underline. Excellent pasterns and feet. Moved well to and fro, just lacked the drive of 1.  

3. Stormalong Selkie. 

Special Yearling (5/1)

1. Edenwhip Quantum Of Solace - 18 month old brindle dog. An elegant yet still masculine male with the most exquisite head. Correct ears and bite. Lovely length of neck and well placed shoulders. Another with excellent pasterns and feet. Loved his curvy top and underlines and hind angulation. Floated round the ring and moved true coming and going. Presented in tip top condition and strongly considered for BOB. 

2. Citycroft Firenze For Loualba - 16 month old fawn bitch. Such a pretty, correctly sized, young lady with a kind and mild expression. Feminine head with correct under jaw. and ears. Superb, curvy body, with good spring of rib and length of loin. Good moderate angulation front and back. Have admired her from ringside for a while and she didn't disappoint, just out-moved by 1. today.

3. Ditto That 

Graduate (2)

1. Citycroft Firenze For Loualba (2nd SY) 

2. Gorewater Jura Joy At Bruntsfield - 20 month old fawn bitch presented in good muscular and fit condition. Lovely expression and correct ears. Nice length of neck into a curvy body with a nice rise over loin. Excellent pasterns and neat feet. Moved well. Great hind angulation. Preferred the front angulation of 1.

Well laid shoulder and good return of upper arm leading to a nice deep brisket. Excellent pasterns. Nice moderate hind angulation. Presented in superb condition and immaculate coat. Moved true for and aft. Best mover in the class.

3. Windwalker Queen Of Hearts.

Open (9/1)

1. Collooney Hells Angel Of Brochinbelle JW - 22 month brindle bitch. A Lovely correct sized bitch with an elegant outline. Pretty head with correct bite and the darkest of eyes. Good length of neck onto well laid shoulders. Correct return of upper arm, leading down to a nicely filled front and sprung pasterns. Wonderful length of body, curvy top and underline. Loved her moderate hind angles and fluid movement. Moved true coming and going, excelled in profile movement.

2. Crosscop No Matter What. 3 year old fawn male. Handsome, correctly sized male. Lovely masculine head, good bite and excellent ears. Elegant arched neck with superb length. Well bodied yet not over muscled. He has the smoothest coat with flowing lines. Good deep brisket and well filled front. Correct arch over a strong loin. Was really splitting hairs between 1 & 2 as I loved them both. I just preferred the movement of 1. in a very close contest. I can imagine this boy excels in a bigger show ring.
