Judge – Mrs Juliet Cooper

GREYHOUNDS

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the officers and committee for giving me this opportunity. And to my excellent hard-working stewards.

Superb inside/outside rings this year made judging a joy.

Exhibits were all in excellent condition, temperaments were excellent and faultless in all the breeds I had the privilege of judging today. All, without exception across the breeds were clean and well presented, not even one dirty tooth!!!

Puppy Dog/Bitch (1)

1st: Rishworth’s Out of the Blue ad Honores (imp) Fra BP, RBB

 Impressive and clean in outline, this young lady had a super head and expression, good chiselling and neat ears. Clean and strong in neck, well placed shoulders and good return of forearm. On the move kept a good shape and style. Put together very well super profile with an effortless gait.

Open Dog/Bitch (2)

1st: Howlett, Boggia & Koulermou Ch. Ina’s Fashion Dedicated to Boughton (imp) BD, BOB

Very stylish and eye- catching boy, typical in outline and has the correct amount of substance and strength throughout. Well-proportioned head of good length, expression, chiselling and topped with neat ears. Very muscular and powerful neck fitting neatly into his shoulders. Correct return of forearm and straight front. Deep chested and ribs had enough spring to allow elbows freedom on the move. Strong loin, good finish to the croup and correct in topline. His quarters were well developed and this first and second thighs were solid to the touch. Accurate footfall on the move, true on the out and back and his open side gait was a joy to watch.
