Three Counties Championship Show 2019
Judge: Mrs C J Rishworth
I was very
pleased with the quality of entry in each breed type.
Presentation was excellent with just two dirty coats and the same
corresponding number of long nails, spoiling otherwise good feet. Teeth
were clean, weights were spot on and the vast majority of exhibits were
fit and extremely well conditioned, certainly fit for function.
*PGD* (2,1) 1. Hughes’ Rossann Bonnie Blue. Red with lovely head, dark
eyes. Well set ears. Soft coat. Strong bone standing on full feet.
Correct angulations fore and aft. Excellent for length and carrying just
the right weight. Strong breast bone, well ribbed. Fit and muscled.
Moved soundly, albeit lacked enthusiasm. RBD
*VD* (1) 1. Roberts’ Ch Swanford Warrador. Red 8 years and in tip top
shape. Masculine head with correct ratios. Strong jaw. Lovely neck with
correct arch. Top line level and held on the move. Strong loin and well
balanced throughout. Front and rear angulations complementary. Neat,
full feet. In super show condition. Beautiful coat. Moved freely and
with drive. BD, BV and BOB
*PGB* (3,1) 1. Roberts. Cedavoch Sweet Taboo Swansford. Red. Good head
piece, dark eyes and ears of moderate length. Would prefer a tighter
mouth. Lovely for balance, long, well muscled body. Short loin. Bone
strong and feet neat, full and broad. Held top line on move. Super
supple skin and flowing coat.The best of movers. BB. 2. Callow’s
Garthorne Graduation Girl. Black and tan. Super for size with no
exaggerations. Pleasing head with dark eyes. Slightly arched neck
flowing into clean shoulders. Well muscled body with top line level and
held on the move. Good for bone. Not as self assured as one. Moved soundly.
*VB* (2,1) 1. Hughes. Dachslur Velvet Ribbon. Black and tan. 8 years
and in excellent condition. Pleasing head, although a tad long in fore
face. Long necked and well ribbed. Strong bone and of good body length.
Beautiful supple skin and soft, straight coat. Full broad feet, and
angulations fore and aft correct. Sound and steady on the move. RBB
