Boston & District Canine Society
I should like to extend my sincere thanks to the Officers and Committee of Boston & District Canine Society for inviting me to judge at this show. It was a very enjoyable day and I very much appreciated the opportunity of this appointment to assess some lovely dogs.
I would particularly like to thank the exhibitors of my fabulous Hungarian Vizsla entry and for trusting me with their dogs – thank you. Finally, huge thanks to my Stewards for the efficiency and support during my Judging.
Puppy Dog (2, 1abs):
1ST Ms E M Bradley, Highforce All Or Nothing: Upstanding dog of 9 months of age. He is balanced but now needs to fill his frame as he is already up to size for me. Balanced head with well developed nostrils, correct eye shape and colour, correct, clean and complete dentition, correct forehand assembly, medium bone throughout, ribs well sprung, showing correct slight tuck-up to body, moderately angulated hindquarters, short coat, tight feet. Moved extremely well and soundly with a lively trot.
Junior Dog (3):
1ST Mr T D & Mrs H L Harrison, Glenbrows By Design: An extremely impressive and rather special young dog of 13 months of age who presented a very typical, well balanced and clean outline when standing. The dog screams breed type to me. Excels in head, which as the breed standard dictates should be ‘lean and noble’ clearly visible median line, moderate stop, deep muzzle with strong underjaw. Dentition correct, clean and complete, Neck strong and of moderate length. Quality bone all through. Firm pasterns. Brisket of good depth and width with elbows correctly placed close to the body. Good forehand assembly, strong, short loin, well made hindquarters, stifles moderately bent and neat feet. Moved very well, accurate both fore, aft and in side profile with head clearly carried above the topline. Reserve Best Dog.
2ND Mr P Watson, Oakswarren Inferno: A balanced young dog again of 13 months but less mature that my class winner. Intelligent expression, skull moderately broad and well proportioned, correct, clean and complete dentition, neck of moderate length, well placed shoulders, coming together well all through, but needs to deepen in chest, which will come, good bone, tight feet and short nails, moved very well.
3RD Ms E M Bradley, Highforce All Or Nothing
Post Graduate Dog (6, 5abs):
1ST Mrs E Hughes, Ambravittoriya Oskar At Listerlo (Imp RUS): A perfectly balanced and masculine example of the breed, presented in fit and hard condition. He has very good quality bone all through, this dog is still not finished and needs to fill his frame, extremely well muscled. Displayed correct breed topline that sloped slightly down from withers to middle of back and without dipping. Correct head with visible median line and good head planes with clean cheeks and foreface of good width with moderate stop, large nose, correct, clean and complete dentition, powerful well rounded neck of moderate length, well placed shoulders and corresponding return of upper arm, deep chest reaching to elbows and with good width, loin of optimum length, strong hindquarters with well developed second thigh, stifles well bent, nails of optimum length, moved without fault in all profiles showing very good length of stride.
