Critique - Bitches: Mrs Carolyn Hogsflesh

First of all I would like to thank the society & officials for the invitation & their hospitality, also my stewards for their help & the exhibitors for their entries, it was a huge compliment, thank you.

I feel I must just reiterate what has been said by others , some heads are becoming plain and lack the raised eyebrow that adds to the expression and character of our lovely breed, bitches can have some "work" about their heads and still remain refined and feminine. I am also saddened that so many lovely bitches had to go cardless because of bad movement, it has been noted frequently that movement is getting worse, I can only add my voice to this comment and stress that it's not enough to have a beautiful dog, well presented -- it has got to move well too. It is really disappointing to go over a dog and think "ooh this is nice " then ask it to move and think "oh no" but on the positive side there were many lovely bitches and some classes with very close Decisions.

Veteran 3(2)

1 Fox Satlas Bleau Eyes 9yr old who is looking very well for her age nice type of bitch, well balanced throughout giving a pleasing overall picture, sweet head and soft expression showing well and really enjoying her day out, though she stood alone she was a worthy winner.

Minor puppy 9

1 & BPB Muir Romarne Tickled this mature young lady has good bone and substance while still retaining her femininity she has a balanced head with dark eyes and a cheeky expression, cleanover the shoulders, good depth of chest and nicely developing quarters, her lush dark coatgleamed in the sun as she moved happily round the ring, with my co judges full approval she was Best Puppy

2 Leach Gwendariff Nutty But Nice she has a delicious head with raised brow and plenty of chiseling, true front and good shoulders, she is at that stage of development where she is a bit highat the back and needs to settle into her quarters, steady on the move and with the promise of a good coat to come.

3 Wilkins Margretswood Dolly Mixture.

Puppy 13 (4)

1 Romarne Tickled.

2 Kay Burfield Kaesha this girl has more my kind of head than 1 but she is not quite as together all over, she has a very nice outline, good ribs, firm loin, adequate quarters for her age and moved steadily with confidence. Just needs her coat to fill in the picture.

3 Box Bardonhill Afternoon D'Lite at Fernstart

Junior 17(6)

1 Catling Shandwick Love In a Mist For Teleri a lovely youngster with a clean elegant outline, she has a long lean head with a soft gentle expression, good reach of neck, gently sloping topline, true in front with good depth of chest, well angulated quarters, put to good use on the move, shown in good coat & condition.

2 Driver Caskeys Mystique at Stearnwood very pretty headed bitch with a sweet expression, more compact type than the winner, sound and well made throughout with good bone, neat feet and well sprung ribs , in good coat and moving nicely.

3 Pike Redclyst Aura.

Yearling 8

1 Sturrock Forfarian Hey Sexy Lady JW well known youngster who doesn't disappoint when going over her , sweet head with raised brow and plenty of work in it, she has bone without courseness, good front and feet, nice depth of body and strong quarters moving steadily and adequately to win this class though I did feel lacked a little of her usual animation.

2 Box Fernstart Golden Charm At Blackborough elegant bitch made on more racey lines, she has a pretty head, good neck and shoulders, gently sloping top line and well angulated quarters she looks as if she is going through a "leggy" stage and needs her coat to fill in the picture.

3 Bott Bardonhill Guilty Pleasure.

Novice11 (5)

1 Caskeys Mystique at S.

2 Sandle Cordarragh Vanity Fair at Bramblesett NAF attractive bitch with a balanced head and pleasing expression, her body is deep and well ribbed, with strong loin and quarters she failed to the winner as she insisted on " hopping and skipping " behind.

3 Borthwick Northamber Runs Riot at Lotushill.

Graduate 17(3)

There were some really promising girls in this class though movement was a problem.

1 Hall Currowhill Tickle Pink with Glennara this is quite a rangy girl in lovely coat, she has a beautiful chiseled head with dark expressive eyes, good reach of neck into clean shoulders and firm topline, well developed quarters and free stylish movement. I was very interested to see that her mother was my best puppy when I judged in Ireland a few years ago.

2 Holley Wynjill Well Known JW another lovely girl, I was splitting hairs between these two, she has an attractive head with soft appealing expression, clean eyecatching outline that flows throughout giving a totally balanced picture, she shows off her well angulated and muscled quarters in her free stylish movement.

3 Walters Dreamerlis Regal Jodie From Deneil

Post graduate 12 (3)

1 & Res CC Swainston Glenvarna Dora the Explorer JW I really liked the way this bitch stands over her ground, she just looks 'right'. Super type of head, with balance of foreface & scull, combines chiseling with femininity, good neck into shoulder placement, firm, gently sloping topline and strong loin. She has a true front, good depth of chest and well angulated hindquarters with neat hocks. Sound free mover who just lost out on overall finish and maturity in the challenge.

2 Mugford Lynwood Happy As A Lark JW another lovely bitch who pushed the winner hard, built on stylish lines, she has a refined head with a soft gentle expression, good reach of neck, well sprung ribs, strong coupling and well muscled quarters, in full coat and moving with purpose just a shade proud of her tail.

3 Pollard Grayrigge Rosalind JW completed a lovely trio.

Mid Limit 12 (2)

1 Gisby Suteresett Black Magic this girl was the best mover in the class, pleasing in head and I really liked her overall shape and size, so nicely put together throughout with no exaggerations, true in front and with good angulation behind, carried her tail well on the move, just needs her full coat to complete the picture.

2 Gardner, Milligan-Bott, & Bott Thendara Jocasta JW slightly taller girl, elegant and balanced in both head and body conformation, good bone and ribs, straight front and strong quarters, steady and happy on the move.

3 Condron & Mortimer Covarney Lill'Madam

Limit 13 (5)

1 Weller Suteresett Wispa At Juledeane JW SHCM this girl is a real favourite of mine, I love her head and expression, dark eyed with quizzical expression, she has matured nicely since I judged her as a baby and I've never see her in better coat, she has a good reach of neck set into well placed shoulders, she has forechest and depth of brisket, strong loin and adequate quarters, moved ok but when it came to the challenge I felt her tail was down and she needed to put a bit more effort into it.

2 Kolbach Copper's Wine'n Roses (IMP SWE) another quality bitch she has a finer head, long and lean with a sweet expression, well constructed, balanced body giving a really nice clean outline, good in front and strong in quarters, free striding happy mover, presented and handled well.

3 Mann & Condron Covarney Annabelle

Open 6

1 & CC Hunter & Brown SH CH/INT CH Fairhaven Louise Mountbatten at Braidmount (IMP SWE) this was not an easy decision for me but one has to judge the dogs before you being totally honest and seeing them " on the day" as they are, neither penalising nor showing favour. I have done this girl well before when she was with her previous owner in Sweden so obviously I liked her. She has an attractive head with cheeky expressive eyes and is an elegant bitch who scores in many ways but particularly in her excellent quarters and free, ground covering movement.Today she didn't put a foot wrong and just kept on showing so could not be denied top honours

2 Hendrix & Pil NED/LUX CH Irishlady Ireleith stronger type of bitch than the winner, balanced and with no exaggerations, head with ample work, good angulation fore and aft, shown in good coat and moving with purpose.

3 Waterton SH CH Kissed By An Angel At Sandstream JW SHCM

Good Citizen 5 (2)

1 Caskeys Mystique At Stearnwood

2 Gaffney Big Red's Hey It Was't Me (IMP NLD) rangy sort of bitch with a really nice type of head, good bone & and substance, well angulated hindquarters, moving happily, just a little proud of her tail.

Carolyn Hogsflesh.
