My thanks to the WKC for a lovely day & to my able stewards for their help.

It was a pleasure to judge this delightful variety again. The entry was numerically small, but there was quality in both dogs & bitches. All exhibits were shown in good condition & there were none who I considered lacking in body or excessively overweight & all had lovely outgoing temperaments which was lovely to see.

My placings were as I saw the dogs on the day. I was looking for a well constructed hound who was balanced in outline & could move soundly & freely with good ground clearance. We had a lovely spacious ring where dogs could show to their best advantage.

PD (3) 1 Barrett’s Ayseebee Rumour Has It, smart b/t of 11 months & mature for age. Liked his size & type, well put together & smart in outline. He has well filled front, good depth & length of ribbing & sound quarters. Masculine head, good neck & topline, moved soundly & freely keeping a good shape; 2 Gittins’ Mr Bo Jangles at Boomerloo, well made b/t of 10 months who pleased for overall shape with good bone & neat feet. Loved his conical head & expression, good neck, enough front, good depth to ribbing & well angulated rear. At present not as settled or mature as 1 but moved out well with good rear drive & shows promise. JD (5) 1 Hunt’s Carpaccio Casablanca, elegant b/t youngster whose good conformation & sound movement won him this class. Lovely make & shape, well balanced fore & aft, attractive head, good neck & front, well ribbed back, nicely angulated quarters. Moved out soundly with a free easy stride in profile keeping a firm topline. In lovely coat & condition. Liked him a lot; 2 Protheroe’s Royalmaple Anky Panky, attractive red of a pleasing type & overall shape. Liked his masculine head, dark eye & pleasing expression, has well filled front, good topline, nice depth & spring of rib, well made rear. Sinks a little on the stack but carries himself well on the move with a good driving action. Just preferred length of rib of 1; 3 Scott’s Danton Mr Brown at Wolferlow. PGD (4) 1 Ergis’ Siouxline Aaron, ultra smart sh/r boy with smooth flowing outline, lovely headpiece carried on lengthy neck, good front & rear angulation, ribbing goes well back with short loin, well made rear with short hocks & neat feet. Moved soundly both ways & freely in profile. Well handled & immaculately presented; 2 Smith’s Wolferlow Admiral Nelson, well presented b/t who pleased for type & overall shape. Has lovely houndy head, enough front, well sprung deep ribbing & good rear angulation. Would like a little more ground clearance but moved out smartly using his short hocks to really drive. Showed well; 3 Dunhill’s Santorna Adam for Gellijam. LD (4) 1 Paget & Carroll’s Bronia Valente of Marvale, this super quality b/t lad had immediate appeal. Loved his type, style & deportment.
