Championship Show - Saturday 15th July 2017


Judge Mrs Nikki Peterson (Troopersway)

Firstly I wish to convey my sincere thanks to the Officers and Committee of the Club on the kind invitation to judge what was a lovely entry of quality bitches alongside Miss Patricia Clayton (Barvae) judging dogs on the day.  Overall I found the bitches to be strong in the main with just a few observations regarding incorrect front movement.  Attention to nails would also be advantageous to further improve the presentation of feet for some exhibits.  Quality classes and in particular with the  youngsters with some promising hounds in future no doubt.  Many thanks to all fellow beaglers for bringing your hounds under me today and again thanks to the Club for an enjoyable day.


Minor Puppy Bitch 4 (0)

1st        Jones & Jepson’s Eardley Molly Coddled.  Ultra-smart black blanketed tri pup.  Appealing expression with dark eye, good stop, and excellent ear set into good length of neck.  Straight front into tight feet and with well laid shoulders through to level top line nicely held on the move with correct tail set, Excels in bone despite her young age.  Nice angulation used well to move away and back. Overall a nicely balanced pup with a bright future no doubt unfortunate to meet her kennel mate for BPB today.

2nd        Findlay’s Rhiconich Natalie;  Broken tri pup of larger mould than 1. Feminine head with a pleasing dark eye.  Good length of neck into correct shoulders, straight front, correct tight feet.  Level top line held, moved well despite making it difficult for her handler to get the best out of her today but overall a lovely feminine hound. 

3rd Philpott’s Charterwood  Shantelle

Puppy Bitch 6 (0)

1st         Jones and Jepson’s Eardley Izzy Cumming. The one that well and truly caught my eye today.  Ultra-smart tri who had everything other than maturity as is expected of one of so young yet easily challenged others for her top awards today.  Beautiful head with a real melting expression, dark eye and excellent ear set.  Good length of neck from well laid back shoulders, round bone to tight and well-padded feet.  Good depth of chest, moderately coupled and a spot on top line to correct tail set. Front and rear construction excels providing the ability to move with reach and drive  aided by her excellent turn of stifle. Still raw as one would wish for her age but caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring and did not disappoint. Easily BPB, RBCC and BPIS.

2nd        Craig’s Davricard Honeybee.  Another promising puppy of larger mould to one but with good quality throughout.  Very feminine head, correct ear set with long leathers, good length of neck into a well laid shoulder.  Moved freely using strong fore and rear, longer coupled than one but overall a well-balanced puppy who was true moving without exaggeration.

1st         Spavin’s Quincerhound Britney Of Dialynne Ultra smart black blanketed tri.  Pretty head with appealing expression and lovely dark eye.  Correct ear set with long leathers giving a soft expression.

2nd        Jones & Jepsson’s Eardley Tish Hughes.  Another well-presented and elegant T/W bitch litter sister to BPIS.  Slightly larger mould than her little mate but with the same quality good bone, conformation and movement overall.  Pretty head with excellent ear set, length of leathers.

I would like to thank the committee for their hospitality and for such a well organized show, also to my efficient stewards who helped the day run smoothly. MP (9,1) 1 Criag's Davircard Hester, beautifully neat and exceptionally well balanced dark tri who has perfect bone and substance for her size, super tight well knuckled feet. Excellent topline and set-on, feminine head and expression, moved totally soundly both ways with sparkle and presence. I was delighted my co-judge was in complete agreement for her to be awarded BP. 2 Parker and Stevens' Serenaker Daydream, another quality bitch who has a lovely stylish presence. Very pretty head with a kind eye and soft expression, lovely neck and shoulder flowing into a good topline, lovely free flowing action on the move. P (4) 1 Jones' Clairdale Damia, extremely feminine little girl who has the sweetest of head and expression, good clean lines that flow nicely. Very stylish mover in profile. Just needs to body through which I'm sure she will in her own time. 2 Dean's Gimping Ballet, nice smart outline, shown in lovely condition and at a good weight. Lovely chiselled head shape with a sweet expression, nice clean neck and shoulder. J (11,3) This was in my opinion one of the overall strongest classes of the day. 1 Jones and Jepson's Eardley Jay Walking, lovely t/w girl who is 100 per cent balanced, she has a lovely eyecatching outline particularly when shows free, which is when she really is at her best. Very nicely put together and pleased me with her overall confirmation on the table. Super quarters and bend of stifle which gives her a lovely driving action in profile, foot perfect both ways. RCC. 2 Craig's Davicard Musetta, pushed 1 hard, another quality girl who is really well made with super clean lines that flow really well. Beautifully feminine head with a lovely eye and expression. Stylish mover who really covers the ground well. At only just 12 months, today lost out to 1 on maturity alone as I would like to see her with a little more body which she will of course develop and as she matures. Y (7,1) 1 Jones and Jepson's Eardley Merry Berry, very neat compact little bitch with correct bone for her size, super firm level topline and correct tail carriage. Moved positively both ways. 2 Cuthill's Divinebrae Pop My Cork, lovely shaped head with a true Beagle like soft eye and expression, Nice front assembly with super neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Super free flowing profile movement, was more settled in front in this her second class than in her previous class. N (4,1) 1 C Damia. 2 Brown's Raimex Reed Bunting, this young lady has so many qualities nonetheless than her beautiful head and expression, however, it has to be said does not at the moment help her handler at all! Her movement was not very settled but that I feel is very likely due to her behaviour on the day, I'm sure she will settle down and cooperate more as she gets older. G (9) 1 Burrows' Summerlily Made In Oz, very sound girl who moved true both ways, nicely put together, so pleasing to go over on the table. Good neck and shoulder that flow into clean bodylines, well sprung ribs. 2 Taylor's Deaconfield Innocence, similar type to 1, pleasing head and expression, nice short coupled through the body giving a lovely balanced outline when stacked. Lovely strong quarters with a good second thigh. PG (8,4) 1 Statham's Annavah Allegro at Brigam, a really nicely put together bitch with correct bone and substance for her size. Not necessarily the most glamorous bitch in the ring but nevertheless a really good honest girl who has a lovely outline. Moved with drive to cover the ground well. 2 D Innocence. ML (8,1) 1 Player's Lyndex Infinity, very smart blanket tri who is so nicely balanced and really fills the eye when stacked. Nicely chiselled head with beautiful expressive eyes, nice through the body with well sprung ribs, good bone and lovely feet. 2 Havard's Annavah Honeydew, lovely rich t/w bitch who really comes to life on the move, with her lovely free flowing profile movement and her happy personality. Lovely neck and well laid shoulders, good depth of chest. L (12,3) 1 Spavin's Dufosee Nabrina with Dialynne, nicely balanced girl who is really pleasing over the neck, shoulder and front construction, this allows her to move with reach, which she did once she settled on the move. Level topline and nicely made quarters with a super bend of stifle which complete the picture on the stack. 2 Nedlaw Beryl, totally different type to the one above as she is more scopey in type, has a lovely scopey free flowing movement in profile with her lovely reach and drive which really took my eye when moving around the ring. Her construction is sound so is nice to go over on the table, handled to perfection, very close to 1. O (7,1) 1 Kritopha's Ch Bayard Forget Me Knot, I am very aware it's all been said before about this girl, however, I was so impressed by her on the table, her overall construction is just a dream to go over and everything is exactly where it should be. She had the correct bodyweight her frame as I have seen her shown slightly heavier at times which in my opinion which doesn't suit her. Exceptional quarters with lovely bend of stifle and good second thigh which really help her to move with such drive in profile. True Beagle expression, one her owner has every reason to be so proud of. Both myself and co-judge were both in perfect agreement she should be awarded BIS. 2 Parker and Stevens' Ch Serenaker Fashion, another really classy rich t/w who has so much style. Beautiful feminine head and expression which is chiselled to perfection. Lovely clean neck and shoulder lines which flow into a ramrod topline which she keeps at all times. Has such presence on the move. I personally would like to see her with just a touch more body to fill and balance her frame. V (11,1) 1 Butters and Theobald's Orchidvale Angelica of Breskar, this old lady is a total credit to her owner, she is still in super condition and moves with such energy making her a joy to watch in profile with her effortless driving action which is so impressive her 12 years. Sweet head and expression, nicely kept body shape. Delighted for her to go BV. 2 Roderick's Barterhound Razzle, really nicely made bitch who also has a lovely free flowing driving action that really covers the ground in profile. Pleasing head with an appealing expression. Also has kept her figure well.

Open show: I must thank the club officers and committee for giving me the opportunity to judge their breed open show and for their hospitality. This club run their shows very proficiently but with the emphasis of the exhibitors and dogs always to the fore. They are called the friendly club and this was prevalent through them achieving a happy and sporting atmosphere throughout the show. I must also thank my two stewards Kath and Nick for keeping things running smoothly and to the exhibitors for their lovely entry of 94 dogs giving 109 entries and for accepting my decisions in a very sporting manner. There were absentees but I had enough depth of quality particularly in the bitches to judge. I can only reiterate my thanks for your support and wish yourselves and the dogs every success in the future. The ring was spacious and as I like an animated ring I had more than enough space to assess the dogs on the move without restriction. My overall observations were that the breed has no problems with temperaments as all typified the merry hound attribute. I was pleased to see males looking males and bitches showing femininity, dentition was also pleasing and very few had an overweight problem. All had good coats. On the negative side front action was somewhat disappointing in that some were paddling or plaiting and in profile lacked the desired front extension, rear action was better in that a large number had rear drive. DOGS: MPD (5,3) 1st and 2nd were tri colours, the winner being Havards Avannah Leonardo Da Vinci, he was pleasing in head properties with a defined stop and soft expression, he had tidy dentition, A1 pigmentation, good length of ear and suitable neck length, he was tidy in front assembly with good straight well round boned legs, spirit level topline and gradual underline, he has good hind assembly muscle tone and his rear is well angulated, his tail is correctly set and carried, to be critical I would like tidier compactness of feet but he is a youngster that was well presented  and today was my BPD. 2 Coates Gladstyle Rock Icon he is an out and out baby but he really pleased for size, head shape, neck length, overall construction and he is compact, he was just not as composed as the first hence his placing. JD (3,2) 1 Hunts Shercroft Apollo he stood alone here but for me he exudes quality, he is very much a male, T&W in colour, it could be argued he is somewhat strong in head but he has a male head with a defined stop, cushioned muzzle, tidy pigmentation, dark eyes, he has an excellent reach of neck, depth of chest, well sprung ribs and supple loin, his front assembly is second to none as was his rear assembly, he carries his tail well and where he comes into his own is on the move where his sound free movement is very pleasing via his A1 front reach and rear drive, his handler has to work hard to keep up with him, he later won graduate dog which I am led to believe gave him his JW, he was my BD and BIS, he was a pleasure to judge. ND (2,1) 1 Tofts Jarrowley Devonport, a tri with character, loved his temperament, his head needs to develop, he is pleasing in structure and round bone, he excels in neck and was pleasing in rear action, when he develops his outline profile will improve, he is a smart young male who was well put down. GD (4,1) 1 Shercroft Apollo. 2 Moorby and Whites Merrilynn get off my cloud, tri who pleased in head and expression, he was well presented, had A1 bone, he moved positively, I particularly liked his rear driving action. 3 Roberts Borerest Cyclone. PGD (3) 1 Hardistys Blunderhall Ray of Hope, strong in head properties, soft in expression, good dentition, low set and well carried ears, tidy neck length, I liked his body properties and profile outline shape, he is very balanced which edged him the class, he scores in bone, muscle tone, he has no exaggerations and his presentation was AI, he covers the ground soundly and with ease. 2 Ambridges Bondlea Legion JW, he is an all male tri, strong in head shape, well cushioned in muzzle, has a pleasing expression, tidy neck length, liked his overall assembly, has good round bone, body condition and muscle tone, he moves out well  but can give his handler a hard time, his front action was just not as tidy as the first today. 3 Taylors Deaconfield Informer. LD (5) This was a mixed class for size, shape and gaiting, 1st Gladstyle Storm Trooper, this tri was the soundest in the class, he is of good size, pleasing in head shape, expression and low set ears, I liked his outline shape and his strong front and rear assemblies, he responds well to his handler and she most certainly gets the best out of him. 2 Davies Stormpasture Trumps Image, very flashy marked tri, as with first very tidy in shape, he has clean sharp lines, is very stylish on the move, he was close up and could change places with the first on another day, he was well presented and handled. 3 Hargraves Barterhound Tudor for Valsacre. OD (7,2) 1 Taylors Deaconfield Governor, this tri got better and better as the class progressed, he has a very good head piece, lovely expression, tidy dentition, he scores in neck length, true front assembly, body properties, he has a well angulated and conditioned rear assembly, he has no exaggerations and is what I term an honest dog, when he settled his movement in profile was a joy to watch with excellent front reach and rear drive, this dog could go all day, he was my RBD, later in the challenge for RBIS he was not as animated nor composed and therefore lost out for this award to the delightful veteran BB. 2 Havards Annavah Felix, this tri has a good head with lovely markings, he is very cleanly marked and is in A1 condition, he has similar attributes to the first, today he was not as sharp as the first in rear action, he is eye catching particularly when gaiting in profile, this exhibitor works hard with her dogs to get the best from them, this one will continue to develop. 3 Philpotts Souththistle Educate from Charter Wood. VD (1,1) I was advised that the dog entered had recently passed away. I feel I would wish to express my condolences to the owners as this exhibit had been a true ambassador for the breed, I had seen him show and he was a very worthy champion, my disappointment was I did not get the chance to judge this quality old timer he being  CH Bedeway Artful. BITCHES: MPB (4,3) Philpotts Charterwood Highlight, 6 months old tri who is an out and out feminine girl, has a very soft expression, clean head markings and dark pigmentation, good reach of neck, well off for body development, lovely topline, well constructed, tight compact feet, was a bit apprehensive but when she gets her confidence her tail will be carried correctly as it is well set and strong, she was sympathetically handled, deserved her first. PB (8) This was a pleasing well contested class. I particularly liked the first three. 1 Jones and Jepsons Eardley Jay Walking, this tan and white is of beautiful make and shape, her balanced outline is to die for, she is ultra feminine, has a delightful head shape, expression and pigmentation, she is well put together and this is proven as when gaiting she is as sound as a bell from all angles, she was beautifully presented and expertly handled in this class and later go BPB and ultimately BPIS, one I will keep an eye on. 2 Goldbergs Molesend Query this tri was not disgraced here, she is also ultra feminine, she is not as developed as the first but is a very pleasing exhibit, she has good head properties, lovely neck length, A1 front assembly, good body shape, tidy rear angulation, I liked her tail set and carriage, she was well put down and very sympathetically handled here and later to win a good novice class. 3 Havards Avannah Knick Knack another pleasing exhibit from this kennel. These three will have enjoyable shows competing with each other in the future. JB (6,1) another well contested class where the first three again will change places in the future. 1 Havards Annavah Imagine, very feminine tri girl who is exceptionally well marked, she excels in profile outline, has a delightful head and expression, has very tidy front and rear assemblies, she was beautifully put down and handled, she scored in sound front reach and strong rear drive, as with all this exhibitors charges she was squeaky clean. 2 Hunt Norris and Carmichaels Shercroft Arina, I thought she was a very tidy tan mottle, who had a number of similar attributes, I just felt she was just not as balanced as the first, she was well handled, another that can cover the ground with ease. 3 Jones and Jepsons Eardley Merry Berry, this was another very tidy exhibit, I thought she was going to be my winner, her movement is clean but I felt she just lacked the scope of the first two, as usual from her owners she was exceptionally well presented.
NB 7(1) I again liked the first three here. 1 Molesend query. 2 Shercroft Arina. 3 Hartlands Franjean Check me out at Fairleedale (Imp), very well put down exhibit, good for size, liked her gaiting and outgoing temperament, she responds well to her handler and was not disgraced by this placing. GB (13,4) Again I was splitting hairs in the placings. 1 Havards Annavah Honey dew, she is only a puppoy but I thought she was delightful, A1 in make, shape and balance, has a very pleasing head shapeand expression, I really thought she was gorgeous, she has lovely tight feet and effortlessly covered the ground soundly. In later challenges she was handled but not by her usual handler and was just not as settled, this is one for the future, again from this exhibitor beautifully put down and presented, another I will keep an eye on. 2 Shercroft Arina. 3 Rodericks Barterhound Gossip, pleasing bitch that showed and moved well throughout. PGB (11,2) This was a good class. 1st Vickers Stormpasture Jasmine at Rosroden, this lightly marked tri was a very balanced exhibit, she has a lovely head piece, A1 expression, lovely neck length, sufficient depth of chest, very well constructed front and rear assemblies, held her level topline at all times, covered the ground easily and with aplomb, everything just fits into her construction jigsaw, well put down and handled, close up today for top honours. 2 Websters Moonjoon Lily of the Valleys for Houndcoast, she is certainly more compact than her name, she was off a slightly smaller mould, is very feminine, very compact, she was well handled and she is very attentive to her handler, she moves with good front reach and rear drive, I just preferred the firsts head properties. 3 Goldbergs Broadshore Vedette at Molesend, very feminine bitch on the same mould as the second and who was beautifully handled and presented, she gave her all to her handler throughout. LB (9,2) 1 Hardistys Dialynne Alayna Avec Blunderhall, this tri exudes quality, she scores in make, shape and balance, has a very good head piece, A1 pigmentation, soft expression, loved her compact feet, sound vivacious movement and personality, beautifully put down and handled, another that was close up for top honours. 2 Jones Clairedale Willomena, tri bitch of a smaller mould, she is very feminine, has a pleasing head and expression, suitable length of neck, well put together construction wise, moved steadily, just lost out as does not have the front reach of the first nor the momentum due to this, she was well presented, she like the first was pleasing to judge. 3 Caneys Springpine Hot Gossip another very smart tri, who at times was a little unsettled but she is sound and was beautifully put down and close up to those above. OB (7,1) This was a mixed class headed by Havards Avannah Alpine, a tri that is very flashy marked, loved her make and shape, delightful head, A1 pigment and expression, very good neck length, ideal body properties, sound front and rear assemblies and resultant correct movement, again handled and put down to perfection, in good company was my RBB. 2 Hunts Bondlea Dove another quality exhibit, a tri with very similar attributes, today just not as settled as the first, they will meet in the future and change places as there is little between them, she as the first was handled and put down to perfection. 3 Taylors Deaconfield Gaiety a pleasing exhibit. VB (12,2) What can I say other than it was an absolute privilege to judge this class, all were a credit to their owners and the breed, and boy did they at the end enjoy the sausages. 1 Conways Barterhound Begonia at Bedeway, very lightly marked T&W who is eight and a half years young, has a delightful, character, temperament and mind of her own, scores in head properties, shape, balance and A1 front and rear gaiting, I found out later she is the daughter of CH Bedway Artful and she is a credit to him and obviously her CH Barterhound mother, she is therefore bred in the purple and is a credit to the breed and her owners, her tail is like a metronome, she uses it at all times and she stands four square either free standing or stacked, she has a terrific rapport with her handler, it was a joy to award her BVB and later BB and RBIS. 2 Theobald and Butters T&W Orchidvale Angelica of Breskar, a favourite of mine, I have done her well in the past and for me she is a quality eleven year old vintage  with simIlar attributes as the first, her profile outline is delightful and she gives her all to her handler, this was a very well contested class and she only lost out to a bitch in top form, this girl is a credit to her owners and the breed and must like the first be a delight to show and live with. 3 Ardens Barterhound Rosebud at Madika JW Sh cm Aw (B) this tri free stands and shows non stop for her handler.
