Critique - Judge: Miss Anne Douthwaite (Gracewood)

I was delighted to accept my first invitation to award CCs in Irish Setters from Manchester Society. Many thanks to them and to my three Stewards who worked tirelessly all day to keep my ring running smoothly. Most of all though my thanks go to all the exhibitors who entered under me. It was an honour and a privilege to have so many lovely dogs to assess.

MPD (19,7a)

1 Lorrimer’s Kerrimere Charismatic, loved this dog’s kind gentle expression. He has a masculine yet refined head with raised brow. So clean over his shoulders with well angulated front and good upperarm. Good forechest, front legs well under him, good bone and feet. Gently sloping topline and good tailset. Moved out well with confidence.

2 Bott’s Gwendariff D’ya Know My Name By Bardonhill, lovely substantial puppy with good strong limbs and good bone. Well set on neck, good forechest, good depth to body, strong over his quarters, moved soundly and steadily.

3 Milligan-Bott & Bott’s Thendara Tick Tock

PD (11,1a)

1 Ciechonska’s Aoibheanne’s Spoilt F’ Choice, took my eye straight away. Such a gorgeous head and melting expression. For his age he is just right, slightly arched neck flowing into clean shoulders. Correct angles front and rear, correct topline and tailset. Strong quarters. Good rich colour and texture to his coat Moved very well. Refined and beautiful from all angles! Challenged his sister for BPIB but his sister just had the edge today.

2 Williamson & Heron’s Caskeys Solar Eclipse at Bluesprings, liked this puppy very much. He has a good head with raised brow and dark eye. Good over his shoulders, very good absolutely straight forelegs with good bone, good width over his quarters. In lovely rich chestnut coat. Moved well. A real ‘honest’ type of puppy.

He has the most beautiful head, dark correct shaped eye and low earset. He has good forechest, good depth to body, strong quarters, good width to second thigh, good bone and feet.

Delighted to award him DCC
