Windsor Dog Show Society

Breed: Gundog Group

Windsor Gundog Group

My thanks to Windsor for the invitation to judge the Gundog Group at their first all breeds show. As always the show was perfectly organised, and it was certainly a warm day, some of the dogs did feel the heat. This was an interesting group, a lot of promising youngsters who I felt needed a bit more time to be competitive at this level. I was really happy with the dogs I shortlisted for a second look. Those not gaining a place this time were the Hungarian Viszla, ALLEN Mrs S Afanleigh Rumble Red, well-proportioned sound and fit dog who moved really well, Field Spaniel, BENNETT Mr D A & Mrs J Jesham Baronet, masc d, he has a really good outline and typical Field movement, Irish Water Spaniel, CARRUTHERS Mrs J Sh Ch Gloi Donn All Or Nothing At Stanegate , lovely character, liked his head, in super coat, Sussex Spaniel, EVANS Mr & Mrs J P Sh Ch Yorkham Rocking Rudolf, really typical Sissex character, well made, v sound and went at just the right pace, and the Spanish Water Dog, FREDRIKSON-SINKOVIC Ms M Zorrazo Can I Get A Woohoo, super proportions, well made and a lot of quality to her. Which left the 4 rather special placed dogs, where performance on the day helped me put them in order. BEST : 4518 CROCKER Mr B A Sh Ch Copper's War Of Roses (Swed Imp) IRISH SETTER Bang on form today, stacked he presents a super outline, parallel out and back, he went so well round that big ring, long powerful stride and holding his super topline. Really is a classy dog. RESERVE : 5511 AMOS-JONES Miss S Sh Ch Veratey Vincenzo At Cassom JW SPANIEL (COCKER) Another who put all in when it mattered. He is well made with well sprung ribs, accurate out and back and the more he went to more his tail went. 3rd : 4790 O'NEILL, Mrs D & O'NEILL Miss J Sh Ch Chesterhope Thrill Of T Chase (Imp) POINTER Really super dog, ideal proportions, very well made and in super condition. Was feeling the heat today, but a v sound dog. 4th : 4310 BOXALL Mrs F Sh Ch Ludstar Frederick Frankenstein (Imp) It GORDON SETTER Lovely Gordon type, with the size and substance needed. He is very well put together. He too just flagged slightly towards the end.
