O'LUGH'S STREETWALKER. HP378568/01. 04/29/10. breeder: M. Martino & A. & M. Dormady. By CH Wolfhaven Aint No Fool To O'Lugh - CH O'Lugh Buckeye Carmina. owner: Andrea & Michael Dormady.

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.


ROCKHART NADAHLIA, JC. HP312799/04. 07/18/08. breeder: Lynn & Christiana Simon. By CH Rockhart Enigma - CH Rockhart Heresy. owner: Dr. Lynn Simon.

HANNIE OF WARWICK. HP360511/01. 10/04/09. breeder: Dane Emerson St.Clair, Glenn Myer, & Audrey E. St.Clair. By CH Pitlochry's Keystone - Kellykerry Isolde Of Aerie. owner: Dane Emerson St.Clair and Audrey E. St.Clair.

Another pretty yet substantial bitch, wonderful dark eye and pigment, rose ears, scored in forehand and brisket, strong quarters, not quite the athletic movement of those above her, maybe affected by the heat?


ROSSLARE'S KISS ME KATE. HP318519/03. 08/18/08. breeder: Glynis Littlewood. By CH Rosslare's Jackamo - CH Rosslare Coleraine Tuirin. owner: Stephanie Whitney

Really liked this bitch, with a little concentration she could have been a contender in this class. Determined to hide her light under a bushel, she gave her handler a hard time. Substantial and curvy, would love to see what she could do when she behaves!


Open bitches - 22 entered (1 Absent, 1 move-up to BOB)



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.

Typy bitch with attractive outline, good head and kind eye, neat ears, good length of neck, nicely balanced angulation and outline, tad short in upper arm, free easy mover.
