Judge Mr R J Gunn.


My thanks to the officers and committee for all their hospitality on the day. It was a day to remember as the weather steadily got worse but we all got through and I must say a big thank you to my stewards who coped so well with the conditions and made my days judging so much easier.

1st Allenby Mr R & Mrs H. Rangali Wispa JW.
My star of the day I absolutely loved this beautiful bitch who just gave her all and never put a foot wrong. Loved her head with a moderately domed skull and a dark eye giving good expression. Well made in her front with shoulders sloping and straight legs. Deep in her chest with her ribs well rounded and carried nicely back. Well bent stifles to her strong muscular rear and nice high set tail carried well. On the move she just flowed around the ring covering the ground with an easy and free stride. Presented in a natural harsh jacket I was pleased to award her B.O.B. 1st in the hound group and 1st in the hound puppy group.
