SKIBBERDEENS VIXEN. 2685686 Netherlands. 12/26/07. breeder: C. Mermsen. By Neth.Ch. Pitlochry's Catwaezle - Pitlochry's Venus. owner: Andrea Dormady and Conny Fernhout & Amy Benjamin.

This bitch took my eye when she came into the ring. She has wonderful ring presence and fulfils the Standard requirement "commanding appearance" in no uncertain terms. Loved her head and kind expression, correct scissor bite and big strong teeth, excellent neck and forehand, well filled front and deep brisket, lovely top and underlines, has bone and substance without a trace of coarseness, strong hindquarters with hocks well let down and best of feet. Curvy and substantial all through, a quality bitch that I would have been happy to take home. Powerful and free on the move, I feel she could do the job she was bred to do. I didn't realise I had judged this bitch before, but she was my BP at the Dutch Specialty three years ago, and just out of interest, her brother was my BD at the German Sighthound show earlier this year! I understand she has only been in the US for a couple of weeks, all credit to her handler for getting the best out of her.

KELLYKERRY KEYNOTE OF AERIE. HP395551/01. 11/09/10. breeder: Glen H. Myer. By CH Pitlochry's Keystone - CH Kellykerry Peggy Sue Of Aerie. owner: Doug Marx and Amy Benjamin & Glenn Myer.

Loved this youngster, well grown pup, feminine head, lovely expression, neat rose ears, reachy neck and excellent front, brisket and ribbing. Would like more bone through the hock, but good width of stifle, and really strong sound movement for one so young. Exciting prospect.


KELLYKERRY PEONY OF AERIE. HP238675/06. 10/15/06. breeder: Glenn H. Myer. By CH Pitlochry's Quintus - CH Kellykerry Reanna Of Eagle. owner: Glenn H. Myer.

Really liked this lovely bitch, giving her handler a hard time, but she has superb breed type, and classic proportions. Beautiful head and expression, lovely rose ears, good forehand and strong quarters used to advantage on the move, even though she did her best to throw this class away.
