VHC: COVERLEY Aventine Shaken Not Stirred
I had a pleasing entry for my first time awarding CCs in this breed. There were some uncomfortable hair splitting decisions. There are some very promising youngsters to follow.
Coats and presentation with only a couple of exceptions were a credit, very good harsh tight coats.
Head furnishings distinctive of this breed were in some not at their best.
Overall mouths were very good all had clean teeth, and only a couple had level bites.
There were some flat feet and long nails which may be due to the difficulty exercising dogs in the current awful weather conditions.
Soundness when moving away and returning was little unsteady at times in the space available but most showed a good profile action with good reach and follow through.
Thank you to the exhibitors for their patience while my stewards Martin Saunders and Peter Higgins efficiently sorted out the printers errors in my paperwork.
