GBGV, PBGV & Whippet

Judge Karen Powney

Unfortunately we clashed with SKC Gundog and Hound day with Tickets on for all 3 breeds I was judging – never the less I had a great entry of PBGV and Whippets and had some fabulous dogs to go over.


No Entries due to clash with SKC


Special Yearling (6,1)

1st Nykarth's Under Wraps – Owned by Mrs Kim Holt – this 16 month old boy has a lovely head, correct dark oval eye. Correctly placed ears and square muzzle. Slightly domed skull and good reach of neck into well laid shoulders. Good angulation front and rear and moved well. Giving his handler a bit of a hard time trying to get his nose on the floor (as were most of the PBGV today). Nearly gave him Res best of Breed but he has a bit more bodying up to do.

2nd Cynetkoy's Tinker Taylor – Owned by Ms L & Mr P Guernari & Dane – another 16 month old boy who has a fabulous coat, correct eye and ear good lay of shoulder. Not moving quite as well as the winner today.

My 5th in this class was my only Puppy

Culdaws Juke Box Jonny – Owned By Mrs KJ Culyer-Dawson – this just 7 month old boy gave a lot away on age to the older dogs in this class today – He has a good bite correct shaped eye and good ear set – good reach of neck into good shoulders and is well angulated – he is still very much a baby and having fun which is great to see. BPIB

Post Graduate (2,1)

1st Beaujons Velvet – Owned by Mr SR & Mrs L Wood – 6 year old bitch with a good domed skull correct eye and ear set and good muzzle. Good coat on her and well angulated fore and aft, and good tight padded feet moved well around the ring.

1st Tangaer French Romance (D) – Owned by Mrs J Hutchings – Lovely head slightly domed, correct dark oval eye and ear set. Good jaw, enough reach of neck into good shoulders and good angulation – good angulation front and back and good coat. He moved really well round the ring holding his lovely level topline. Good feet and bone. Pleased to award him BOB.

2nd Nykarth Perfect Moment (B) – Owned by Miss K Moulding – 6 year old bitch with a lot to like – correct head and eye, good ear set with enough reach of neck into ok shoulders. Was more interested in sniffing than moving round the ring which meant she did not show off her movement well but she has a good rear angulation and moved OK once she was going. RBOB – was a shame to see she did not get her tail up on the move in the RBOB stakes class.

1st Shalfleet Chilli Cracker (B) – Owned by Ms J Wilton-Clarke – 10 month old girl with a very pretty correct head, very feminine with a good reach of neck. Well angulated and moved well round the ring. BPIB & pleased to see her go BPIS 3.
