Critiques - 5 April 2014 – Sue Cameron-Codognotto

 

Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank both the Club for their wonderful hospitality and the exhibitors for their entries and for taking my decisions so graciously and in such a good sporting manner. It was a pleasure to judge your beautiful dogs.

Apologies to all exhibitors but unfortunately my voice recorder malfunctioned and I do not have my commentsafterwhippet puppy dog. I have recreated these critiques from memory, where possible. H O U N D S

 

GREYHOUNDS

 

Despite the limited number of exhibits I found quality in my greyhounds, in particular with the babies, which bodes so well for the future.Baby Puppy Dog

 BABY PUPPY DOG

1.        Whirlaway Astronomer (AI)

4 month old brindle baby puppy going through that awkward developmental stage at the moment with his topline suffering a little.He had excellent bone, good head but would prefer a darker eye. Happy and active on the move.Open Dog& Runner Up Best of Breed

OPEN DOG & R/UP BEST OF BREED

 2.         Ch Whirlaway Classic BeyondBelief (AI)

Upstanding, strong,well balanced, 4 year old brindle male of good size and substance.     I would prefer a little more length to him to enable him to stand over more ground. Good depth of chest, bone, head and hindquarter. Movement was straight, clean coming and going, but lacked a little power on his side gait.y Puppy Bitch& Baby Puppy in Show

 3.         Whirlaway Star Gazer (AI)

A gorgeous 4 month old brindle baby bitch.   Extremely well balanced for her age, exhibiting excellent depth of chest, well ribbed back, with good length of back and long loin. .   Elegant long neck, going into well laid shoulders, with strong bone. Lovely long head with a good eye. Loved her on the move as she covered the ground well and will continue to strengthen with muscle development. A very promising baby, whose future bodes well.

 4.         Whirlaway Dizzy Miss Lizzy

To me the fundamental aspect of the Greyhound standard that reverberates in my mind is the word long.   This elegant upstanding 9 month old brindle bitch had goodbalance fore and after and stood over a lot of ground. Deep capacious chest, well ribbed back, good long back, topline and powerful loins, good bone and hindquarter.   Lovely long head, good ears and eye. Elegant on the move showing an effortless low reach and powerful drive, she could if given the opportunity cover the ground at great speed.

 

 

WHIPPETS

 

As an overview of my whippet judging, I look primarily for shape, flow, overall balance with no form of exaggeration, an elegant dog that stands over ground, with daisy cutting effortless movement conveying power.   I was thrilled to find such quality in the whippet classes, generally making my decisions very difficult.Bby Puppy Dog

6.         Wingstar The Rifleman

Well behaved, lovely fawn 5 ½ month old baby puppy dog. Good front angulation including lovely neck into shoulder (despite a protruding vaccination seroma) but felt he could benefit from a little more hindquarter.  Sound mover.

 7.         Wandarrack Darcys Design

This 6 month old parti brindle boy impressed mewith his overall symmetry, smooth flowing outline, and no form of exaggeration. Good size, bone, feet and lovely long lean head, rose ears and eye. Good fill, depth of chest, well ribbed back with good arch and length of loin. On the move he was true out and back and showedeffortless daisy cutting movement. Overall, he was a lovely promising puppy who stood over a lot of ground.

 21. Sup. Ch. Peperone New Sensation

This dog gained and held my attention the moment he entered the ring, he simply oozed class and quality. From the top of his head to the tip of his tail, everything flowed smoothly giving him a beautiful well balanced shapely outline with no exaggeration whatsoever. Exhibiting the required strength combined with elegance there is little to fault on this dog. He possesses a gorgeous typical head with beautiful eyes and terrific ears. Super graceful free movement with daisy cutting front action and a hindquarter conveying power, he typifies correct whippet movement for me. This dog in my opinion is the complete package, and simply epitomises a whippet, hence could not be denied Challenge Dog, Best of Breed, and ultimately Best in Show.

This is a super pretty, elegant nearly 2 year old parti brindle bitch of good quality.  Stands over a lot of ground.  Lovely head, long elegant neck leading into good clean shoulders. Showed good reach and propulsion on the move but for me her topline was just too flat.
