I was a replacement judge for Mrs Worthy and hope that all is well with her. Rather a late start, thanks for your patience and quick ring change so we could finally start. I thought this was a good entry with typical hounds. Main fault was ears, the really correct ear seems to be somewhat lacking. Coats were a bit variable. Temperaments were excellent.

Puppy D (1)


Promising pup who is well proportioned and such a sound mover. Good head. Would like slightly better ears. Well laid shoulder. Well ribbed. Strong rear. Just. Needs to use his stern more. Good coat.
