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.

Puppy Dog 4(0)


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.



Junior Dog 7(1)

2.     Jennings MARVALE NORTHERN CARDINAL AT JENIVON. 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. Moved out well. Just needs some muscle finish at the rear but this should come with maturity.

1.     Jennings DUDDONDAXS JUDGE JUDE FOR JENIVON.  Lovely red dog of nice shape, type and balance.  Good conical head with well shaped dark eye.  Strong neck and topline with ribbing carried well back.  Well laid shoulders and powerful quarters to match.  Looked good in outline especially on the move where he impressed me with his length of stride and ability to cover the ground efficiently.

2.     Coxons D'ARISCA DRIVES A DAIMLER. 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. Loved her conformation and flowing lines with everything fitting so nicely together to give a balanced typical outline.  Well made throughout with lovely proportions. 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. C.C and B.O.B

Another quality red bitch of nice proportional balance.  Lovely head with gentle expression, good bone and substance and ribbing carried well through.  Well angulated front and quarters.

Well constructed red bitch of nice proportions and conformation throughout.  Lovely head, good neck and strong well maintained topline.  Good ribbing carried well back.

2.     Mason's TECKELTOWN YOU'RE THE ONE JW Smart black and tan with many attributes. Lovely head and eye. Elegant lines throughout. Well balanced proportions.
