I was privileged and honoured to judge our wonderful breed at Crufts 2022. My thanks to the exhibitors for a lovely entry who were all shown in lovely condition after what has been a very difficult time for everyone.  I was very pleased to be able to find what I was looking for in most of the classes.  My thanks also to my very efficient stewards Jean Pratt and Barry McCartney who made my job easier.

 

Veteran Dog 4 (1)

 

1.     Melbourne's D'ARISCA FLAUNT IT AT MELRIDING. Quality red dog. Lovely balanced profile.  Good head and eye, strong neck and topline and very good ribbing.  Well made quarters with short rear pasterns and good feet.  Moved very soundly keeping his outline at all times.

2.     Stewart's STARGANG TYRION RUSSTECK. Very smart brindle dog.  Nice head, well constructed front and rear and keeping his topline both standing and moving.  Moved steady and true at all times.  Just preferred the ribbing and feet of the winner.

3.     Baker & Clements DUKE MIDNIGHT WILLIAM

 

Minor Puppy Dog 2(1)

 

1.     Shutt's DEBBIEJAY CHASING DREAMS FOR DONNADOON.Black & tan baby who was enjoying his day.  Good conical head with dark well shaped eyes.  Good neck and prominent forechest.  Balanced angulation front and rear. Moved out sound and true.  He is standing high at the rear at the moment which just detracts from his outline but he is a baby with time on his side.

1.     Scoins HAYVENHUND EAGER BEAVER  Red dog with a nice head and outlook. Balanced angulation front and rear.  Good depth but could have more follow through on ribbing, Strong topline.  Moved confidently but could have a little more width in front.  Put on a sterling performance for a baby

2.     Scoins HAYVENHUND ENCORE. Black & tan dog who I see is litter brother to 1. Many of the same comments apply.  Nice head, strong topline and balanced angulation Also tending to cut up underneath.  Moved out well but needing to strengthen at the rear both standing and moving.

Red dog of lovely type.  Only just 12 months.  Good conical head, very good neck into well constructed shoulders and long ribbing carried well back.  A shade longer in loin than winner but still holding a good topline.  Well rounded quarters.

Quality black and tan dog with good body proportions.  Well constructed shoulders and quarters, good prominent forechest and strong even topline.  Good ribbing carried well back.

3.     Bell's TOLBERG EOSTRE

 

Junior Bitch 12(1)

 

1.     Hanney-Mitchell's CH.BRONIA'S ANTONELLA Very impressive young lady who stole the show for me today.

Excellent angulation back and front and well developed forechest.  Feminine head with an alert, intelligent outlook.  Moved around the ring easily with drive and extension (something lacking in many today).  She never put a foot wrong and I was proud to see her represent our lovely breed in the group ring where she put on another top class performance.
