WELSH KENNEL CLUB. 16TH AUGUST, 2019 JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

BLOODHOUNDS.

SINCE I LAST JUDGED THIS BREED I NOTICED AN IMPROVEMENT IN THE CONDITION OF MANY OF THE HOUNDS AND EYES HAVE REALLY BEEN TIGHTENED WITHOUT LOSING THE BASIC “LOOK” OF A BLOODHOUND.

VETERAN DOG PUPPY DOG JUNIOR DOG POST GRADUATE DOG NO ENTRIES

LIMIT DOG (2) 1. GRIFFITHS & MORTIMORE’S HOUNDSEEKER ALARIC. BLACK/TAN WITH A GOOD HEAD AND EYE. . LONG NECK. COULD TIGHTEN IN FRONT. CORRECT WELL KNUCKLED FEET. WELL RIBBED. AND STRONG IN HINDQUARTERS WITH SUFFICIENT MUSCLE AND CORRECT ANGULATION. 2.MCKENZIE’S TESSIDEZ BULLEN OF MOORLANDER (IMP) HEAVILY BLANKETED BLACK/TAN WOULD PREFER LONGER FOREFACE ON THIS DOG. HE HAS GOOD FEET AND FRONT. VERY DEEP RIBBING NEEDS MORE ANGULATION BEHIND AS HE STOOD HIGH IN THE REAR AND HIS HIND MOVEMENT WAS ERRATIC.

OPEN DOG (3) 1 ABS. 1 ROWLAND’S CASTLEDEE MOONLIGHT SKY UPSTANDING BLACK AND TAN DOG OF 26 MONTHS WITH A SUPER HEAD AND EYE. GOOD STRONG FRONT WITH KNUCKLED FEET. NICE AND DEEP AND STRONGLY RIBBED. GOOD OUTLINE. CORRECT HINDQUARTERS WHICH HE USED WELL. CC. 2 PRIESTLEY’S CH. RAILSIDE PLUTO AT QUIKOTIC. . A 5 ½ YEAR OLD DOG I HAVE JUDGED TWICE BEFORE AND AWARDED TOP HONOURS. TODAY HE WAS NOT THAT HAPPY ON THE MOVE ALTHOUGH HE IS A VERY GOOD HOUND TO GO OVER. SUPER HEAD AND EYE. STRONG FRONT AND DEEP RBBING.CORRECT KNUCKLED FEET AND STRONG QUARTERS BUT NOT THE STRENGTH IN HIND MOVEMENT OF MY WINNER. RES CC

PUPPY BITCH. (1) CLARK’S BORU’S CARP DIEM BABY AT FARLAP (CAN IMP) A 6 MONTH BLACK AND TAN BABY WITH A LOVELY HEAD AND OUTLINE. GOOD SHOULDERS AND FRONT SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT FOR A YOUNGSTER. GOOD FEET.NEEDS TO DEEPEN BUT SHE IS A BABY. GOOD TAIL CARRIAGE. NEEDS TO TIGHTEN UP ON THE MOVE BUT CORRECT ANGULATION THROUGHOUT. SHOULD HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE.

LIMIT BITCH (2) 1 ABS. 1. ROWLAND CASTLEDEE SECRET LOVE.. LITTER SISTER TO LIMIT DOG WINNER. LOVELY OUTLINE STOOD. GOOD HEAD AND EYE. LONG NECK AND STRONG FRONT WITH KNUCKLED FEET. WELL RIBBED AND DEEP ENOUGH. LET HER HANDLER DOWN ON THE MOVE AS SHE WAS RATHER UNSETTLED AND DIFFICULT TO ASSESS. MOVED SO MUCH BETTER IN THE CHALLENGE AND I WAS DELIGHTED TO AWARD HER RESERVE CC.

OPEN BITCH. (2) HOWIE AND EMYRYS- JONES’ CH MARKSBURY WHEEDLE VON JAEGERSMANN. GOOD UPSTANDING BITCH BLACK AND TAN WITH A SUPER HEAD AND EYE AND EXCELLENT LEATHERS. 3 YEAR OLD AND FULLY MATURE.
