I would like to thank the SKC committee for my first Championship Certificates in this breed. I had a good selection of dogs and bitches of good quality, no major faults found, a little bit overweight, and turned out with a good quality entry overall. 
PD 1 Fultonís Bothlyn Trail Blaze. Overall impression of good proportions, head and eye, muzzle and strong jaw line, and correct teeth. Ear length is a bit short. On the stack good shoulder lay with a good topline, I would prefer a bit more ribbing. I allowed for this as a puppy and has plenty of growing time. Angulation not overdone on the move was naughty but given the benefit of the doubt, just did not settle. Excellent coat. 
JD 1 Kirkwoodís Beetlejuice Vitoraz At Heydon. A good attitude in the ring, head and eye correct, ear length covered eye, proportions correct, reach of neck and lay of shoulder angle allowing a good reach on the move, front not overdone allowing clearance, length of ribbing and loin correct giving a good strong rounded backend on the move presented a well put together dog. Res DCC. 
LD 1 Feethamís Kimbleholme Cazino. A good striking hound head with almond shape eye, strong jaw with correct bite, length of muzzle correct, good dark pigmentation, reach of neck and lay of shoulder and correct ground clearance. Correct length in the proportion of body with nice straight hocks. On the move, topline correct, showing pads throughout the movement, could have been better on concentration, has a good future. DCC. 2 Mills-Jonesí Bothlyn Mr Chip To Sharplaw. Another nice dog spoiled by being overweight made him look overloaded at the shoulder and impede movement, a shorter coupled dog of correct proportion, well ribbed with good angulation handler needs to be more assertive in the ring so the dog can show himself in the ring. Excellent coat and well turned out. Keep getting out there. 
OD 1 Kirkwood-Emeryís Ch Heldon Laird Loki JW. An overall good impression head and eye occuplt good shape, strong jawline, with a good reach of neck, chest and forefront in proportion, correct ribbing and loin good topline, back end filling hands on the stack. Moved with purpose around the ring, a little close at times. Well presented. 2 Russellís Russteck Romeo. A good hound expression, eye slightly rounded, correct ear length, good pigmentation, proportion to length and height correct, on the move he was moving well until something took his mind off the game, which unsettled him and his movement, did not correct himself, different type to the first. 
VD 1 Feethamís Kimberholme Jackpot. Overall a compact dog with correct proportions. Head good shape and length, prefer a slightly more almond shape eye. Good ground clearance of forechest. Shoulder placement correct with a good reach of neck. Ribbing and loin correct length with angulation not overdone. Forward-moving and kept a topline. BVH Group 4. 2 Ritchieís Bothlyn Mr Chip To Sharplaw. See critique in limit. 
PB 1 Kirkwood-Emeryís Helydon Radiant Rivva. Well presented bitch with a good hound head and eye shape, with a strong jaw line, correct bite with feminine head, correct shoulder placement, good ground clearance, nice forechest developing, topline correct and good ribbing and loin. On the move held a topline with a good forward movement, a little unsettled at times, good future ahead. 2 Kirkwoodís Helydon Quickstep Queeni. Good proportions throughout, head and eye and correct mouth, a good forechest and lay of shoulder on the stack, good topline. Would prefer a bit more ribbing, time to develop. A correct coat. Is not as flowing on the move as first on the day. 
JB 1 Sextonís Molloney Noodle Not A Doodle. Overall good shape and proportions, well presented. Good length of muzzle, head and eye correct, with a strong jaw and correct bite, ground clearance of forechest, lay of shoulder, nice tight elbows. On the move straight and forward going, kept a topline. Reserve CC. 2 Russellís Eyez The One Russteck. Good head and eye shape, correct forechest, good lay of shoulder, tight elbows. Ribbing I would prefer a bit more. On the move kept a topline and moved forward. Just preferred the overall outline of the first. 
PGB 1 Russellís Sheez Got It Russteck. Overall a well presented bitch with a good coat. Correct head and eye shape, strong jaw line, and correct bite. Good shoulder lay of placement. Ribbing and loin correct with nice straight hocks. On the move forward going with a good topline. 2 Stephensonís Wistex Taking It Easy. A different type to first. A good strong head, eye and ear correct, lay of shoulder and forechest good. Prefer slightly more ribbing to loin, angulation correct for height with excellent coat. On the move kept a topline and moved forward with a good temperament. 
LB 1 Kirkwood-Emeryís Heldon Niffty Nairn. Overall outline correct feminine head with a correct mouth, good reach of neck, enough clearance of forechest lay of shoulder correct. Overall moved forward with purpose and confidence keeping a topline, nicely handled well turned out. 2 Blackburnís Stargang Sapphire And Steel. A really impressive dapple evenly and clearly marked. A really nice bitch with bone. Good feminine head, eyes with a good almond shape and ear correct, a good reach of neck and lay of shoulder and good ground clearance. Ribbing, and loin correct proportions. On the move had drive and presence but gave the handler a hard time stacking on the floor, so frustrating for handler. 
OB 1 Blackburnís Stargang Witches Shadow. Good strong bitch of proportions overall excellent head dark pigmentation with good length of muzzle correct bite. Almond shaped eyes with a good length of ears. Reach of the neck with a good strong forechest, with ground clearance. Ribbing and loin correct angulation and strong back end. On the move showed drive and loved every minute of her performance Temperament obliging at all times and fit. BOB, CC. 2 Stephensonís Molloney Winnie Tergames At Wistex. A well presented bitch with a good head and eyes correct bite and strong jaw line. Forechest good ground clearance correct lay of shoulder, not quite enough reach of the neck as I would like. On the move kept a topline and showed herself well in good condition. 
VB 1 Stephensonís Bothlyn Indigo Blue At Wistex. A 10 year old bitch in good condition with correct head and eyes, dark pigmentation, a little stuffy on reach of neck, forechest and lay of the shoulder in the correct position, good length of ribbing and loin. On the move kept her topline. Nothing seemed too much. 
Sp Beg B 1 Hillís Helydon Nimble Neve. Correct harsh coat, a compact bitch, good head, almond eye with good pigmentation. A little overweight, makes her neck look stuffy and her shoulder overloaded. Ribbing and loin, correct angulation. Moved better in this class, more forward-moving and looked better. 
GCB 1 Stephensonís Bothlyn Indigo Blue At Wistex. Critique written for veteran bitch.
