WINDSOR CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW. 30TH JUNE 2019 JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

DEERHOUNDS.

IT WAS A PLEASURE AS ALWAYS TO JUDGE AT THIS PRESTIGIOUS SHOW.. RUN SO EFFICIENTLY BY THE HARD WORKING COMMITTEE AND STEWARDS.

I LIKED MY WINNERS VERY MUCH BUT WAS A BIT CONCERNED ABOUT THE NARROWNESS OF SOME EXHIBITS BOTH IN FRONT AND HIPS WHICH SHOULD BE WIDE APART TO GIVE THE DOG STRENGTH BEHIND TO DO THE JOB FOR WHICH HE WAS BRED. A COUPLE HAD FLAT RIBCAGES. SOME FEET COULD HAVE BEEN TIGHTER AND I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW MANY LOWER TEETH WERE GROUND DOWN AND IN SOME CASES DIRTY.. A COUPLE OF EXHIBITS COULD DO WITH A GOOD GROOM . ONE HAD A LUMP OF HAIR HALF WAY DOWN THE TAIL THAT I THOUGHT WAS OF CONCERN AT FIRST. ONE EXHIBIT ACTUALLY HAD “CLING ONS” WHICH IS NOT PLEASANT WHEN JUDGING A DOG!
