Regular Classes - Bitches

 

Winners Bitch: This decision came down to the winners of the Novice Bitch Class and the Bred-By-Exhibitor Class. The Novice bitch excels in strength and power. The Bred-By-Exhibitor bitch excels in her shape and beauty on the move. The Novice bitch was not as in control, and in the end, it was the flowing movement of the Bred-By-Bitch that earned her Winners Bitch.

Reserve Winners Bitch: This award went to the Novice bitch based upon her all virtues listed below.

6 to 9 Puppy Months bitches - 12 entered (2 abs)

This was a strong class from top to bottom. Those entered hold much promise for the breed. I am sure that if I judged them again, that any number of the 11 shown in this class could win on another day.

  1.

20 - R NOBLE LOLA OF EAGLE. HP451296/01. 04/03/13. breeder: Joe & Kathy Roland & Sam Houston McDonald. By R Noble Ghasper Of Eagle - CH Dunn Myrica Lyra Of Eagle. owner: Joe & Kathy Roland and Sam Houston McDonald.

This is a very shapely, young bitch that holds much promise. She has a great head and expression, good neck that blends smoothly into her body, and good angulation – both front and rear. She is still a little loose in movement, but a quality young bitch.

  2.

26 - EIRIAN PADRAIC PRIE QUIET TIME BECCA. HP447351/01. 02/09/13. breeder: Robin & Chris Coen & Mary Ellen Shriver. By Fitzarran Dunmadadh Padraic Brie Quinn - DC Eirian Quintessence, RN, SC, LCX. owner: Mariellen Dentino.

This bitch was more mature than the 1st placed bitch, and possessed more bone and substance, but was not quite as angulated, or proportional overall.

  3.

28 - EIRIAN'S QUICKFIRE TRISH O'TAILSTORM. HP447351/02. 02/09/13. breeder: Robin Coen & Christopher Coen & Mary Ellen Shriver. By Fitzarran Dunmadadh Padriac Brie Quinn - DC Eirian Quintessence, RN, SC, LCX. owner: Frances Abrams and Robin Coen.

This bitch is very much like her litter mate that placed 2nd. She did not move as well as her sister, but they are both very nice young bitches.

  4.

Bred-by-Exhibitor bitches -22 entered (4 abs)

She moves effortlessly, with much reach and drive. She holds her beautiful shape on the move. She also is very clean – coming and going.
