Marion McAngus Special Awards

I was delighted to be asked to judge the Special Award classes at this show and was heartened to discover that the classes have been named in memory of the lovely Marion McAngus whom I knew for many years.

P (2, 2a): 1 Moss’ Ewtor Barking At The Moon, 11 months dog presents a pleasing outline with good length of body & level topline. Tight arched feet, clean neck of moderate length into well laid shoulders, good spring of rib, strong over the loin, good turn of stifle. Long day for him but he went well; 2 Davidson’s Farnfield Huntsman, almost 12 months & much more raw. He has a lovely outline with level topline & good ribbing. He is smart & has a showy presence. Clean neck into well laid shoulders, just needs to drop down into himself for everything to come back south including his angles - this will come with maturity.

J (4, 2a): 1 Lewis’ Enryb Lily The Pink, thought this bitch to be of lovely quality, feminine but robust, correct in outline with good body length, clean neck into well laid shoulders, good spring of rib & clean over the topline. Good texture to coat, in good muscular condition so held a taut loin & good underline. Well handled; 2 Tasker’s Zo ldmali Ezmi (Imp), dog, good for size & bone, brisket down to elbow, level topline, good turn of stifle, very well muscled throughout including through the loin. Correct coat to the touch. A little compact in body - preferred the ratios of 1.

PG (2, 1a): 1 Connolly’s Bardantop Witchway Benmorbry, bitch, presents a pleasing outline with good body length, level topline & good underline. Correct bend of stifle, good rear pasterns. Would like more depth & fill in forechest.

O (5, 3a): 1 Davidson’s Throstlenest Helios, the best head in terms of ratio properties. Clean neck, well laid shoulders, brisket down to elbow, good ribbing, muscle tone & coat. Scored in movement with strength from good rear pasterns with hocks well let down; 2 Collier’s Belatarr America, upstanding rangy male, robust, nice outline with good body ratios, correct bend of stifle. Not as good as 1 on rear movement.
