Dogs 4 points Bitches
Many thanks to the
Memphis Club in providing me with the best hospitality ever. Beautiful
showgrounds, lovely weather, great people and quality dogs made my stay
a complete pleasure. There was a lot of quality in males as well
as in bitches. I noticed that many of the males had nice short hocks
and tight feet and masculinity. The bitches were exceptionally nice,
as usual. They had nice toplines, good mouths, with only one with a missing
2nd premolar. Handlers were all cooperative and moved the dogs in
the way I wanted...no racing, and a loose leash at least one time.
6 - 9
- Very nice, black and rich tan puppy with short hocks, nice tight feet,
good head, full dentition. He has a hard back, good croup, nice outreaching
sidegait, with good forehand and rear drive. Nice angles front and
rear, and a good temperament
Bull V Pilgrim - A good sized, black and tan, heavy boned puppy. He has
nice short hocks, a little light in eye, full dentition, good head, nice
outreaching sidegait. He lifted in front at first, but when he settled
down, his front looked fine.
Cresthers Midas Jada
V Kenlyn -Very handsome breed type, nice angles front and rear, beautiful
head piece, full dentition, heavy boned. He is black and tan, with
really nice dark almond eyes, good front extension and follows through
with a ground covering side gait and really good suspension.
SKJ's Von Anvil Jones
- dark and light tan, pretty type, good coming and going with a nice temperament
American Bred Dogs,
Reserve Winners Dog
of Anne-Isle - a very handsome heavy boned dog, strong, masculine
type, He took a longer stride than #2. Very good head, dark
eye, full dentition, good angles front and rear, with nice short hocks.
A bit long in body, but I liked his long stride, with good forehand and
follow through. A strong contender for Winners.
Open Dogs - Winners
Dog, Best of Winners
Abraxas promises of
Gold - A very handsome black and tan male with a really smooth and easy
sidegait. He is very balanced front and rear, with a nice hard back
and high wither. He is masculine, with a good male head, nice dark
eye, full dentition. He extends well in forehand with good rear follow
through. He carries a good topline on a loose leash. My type
of dog. He was hard pressed by the Reserve dog, but won on his consistency
in gaiting and effortless motion.
6-9 Puppy Bitches
Chablis Cuervo Gold
Inflight - Nice bitches in this class. Beautiful sable bitch,
very smooth gait, very consistent in gaiting. She has good front
reach and rear follow through. I would like to see a little more
length of croup. She has a nice feminine head, full dentition and very
good bone. She was unable to compete for Best Puppy due to the 9-12 Puppy
defeating her by going Reserve. However, she would have been a contender.
9-12 Puppy Bitches,
Reserve Winners Bitch, Best Puppy
Lil - A simply gorgeous black and tan puppy. Nothing much I
can say wrong with her. She is one I would love to own. She has an
excellent back, high wither, beautiful rear angulation, good length of
croup, short hocks, good bone, full dentition, dark eye. She has
a beautiful long neckpiece sloping into a good layback of shoulder.
A ground covering sidegait with excellent forehand and rear follow through.
She is clean coming and going. Good temperament. Just stunning.
Passion - Nice bitches in this class. She was the smoothest in side
gait, with a hard back, nice reach and drive when she settled down. Pretty
breed type. I loved #2 (Kenlyn's Mademoiselle V. Jada) very much,
who was a large substantial bitch. She wasn't as consistent in gaiting...has
to settle down with more ring training. Truly a lovely moving bitch
who I could only see one really good pass.
Princess - Very nice, dark black and light tan, petite bitch . She has
nice angles front and rear, with a very nice sidegait. She likes
to race, but when she settles down and moves the way I want her to, she
looks very nice. She has a good forehand and rear follow through.
She has a pretty feminine head, dark eyes, full dentition and good temperament.
Has to slow down to be recognized and almost lost it because she didn't
want to slow down.
American Bred Bitches,
- A lovely deep black and tan bitch with a lovely head, dark eyes, full
dentition. She has a perfect ground covering sidegait with a nice
long stride. She can go nice and easy which I like and still carry
a good topline and never misses a step. She has an excellent forehand and
rear follow through with a hard back on a loose leash. A very nice
bitch with a good temperament.
Colby of Oh-My - Nice
typey bitch with a good forehand and rear follow through She is very pretty
with a nice feminine head, full dentition, dark eyes. She has a nice
balanced side gait. I liked her nice turn of stifle and short hocks.
She was also a contender for Winners and Reserve.
