BASSET HOUND CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW. 9TH NOVEMBER. 2019. JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

DOGS

AS THIS WAS THE 65TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW IT WAS A WEEKEND OF CELEBRATION WITH A GET TOGETHER ON FRIDAY AND A DINNER DANCE AFTER THE SHOW. THE PRIZES AND COLOUR SCHEME OF BLUE ALONG WITH THE ORGANISATION WAS REALLY TO BE ADMIRED AND I THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR THE INVITATION. THE WORK THAT WENT INTO THE PREPARATIONS WAS PLAIN TO SEE.

I FOUND SOME HEAVY EARS WITH LACK OF FOLD. SOME UPRIGHT SHOULDERS AND LACK OF KEEL AND SOME FEET WERE FLAT AND LOOSE WHICH IS A PROBLEM FOR A HUNTING BREED. EYES ON THE WHOLE WERE GOOD AND THERE WAS SUFFICIENT GROUND CLEARANCE UNDER THE DOGS.

VETERAN DOG. (1) ELLRICH’S CH MALLRICH SIR RUFF DIAMOND. A TEN YEAR OLD RED/WHITE MALE OF LOVELY TYPE. NOBLE HEAD AND GOOD LEATHERS. STRONG NECK AND FRONT, GOOD KEEL AND RIBBING WITH CORRECT TOPLINE AND TAIL CARRIAGE. TIGHT FEET AND STRONG PARALLEL HOCKS. . MOVES SO WELL FOR HIS AGE. BEST VETERAN IN SHOW.
