Class PUPPY DOG (2 Entries) Abs: 1
Strong puppy, good bone and substance. Excellent angles fore and aft. Dark eyes and pleasant expression. Moved a bit prancy but when he slowed down he improved, saying that he is only young but this would become a habit if not corrected. BP
Class JUNIOR DOG (2 Entries) Abs: 0
Lovely head and expression. Good width in front and well laid shoulder, well angulated rear quarters. Correct topline to well set long tail. Very pleasing youngster, moved soundly.
Also just out of puppy so still has a lot of maturing to do. Pale brindle with good depth of chest and spring of rib, well laid shoulder but not the angles of 1st.
Class POST GRADUATE DOG (5 Entries) Abs: 3
2 year old dog, lovely head ears but would prefer a darker eye. Well made, deep chest, strong loin and good bone. Nice shape standing moved ok; just wish he did not have a ring in his tail.
Nice male but lacking in body but depth of chest is there. Well laid shoulder, good length from hip to hock, adequate bend of stifle, well carried long tail.
Class LIMIT DOG (6 Entries) Abs: 0
All male but not course in anyway. I like my males to have lots of substance but also retain their houndyness. Grand spring of rib and depth of chest. Good front and return of upper arm. Moved with purpose with lots of drive. Only a young dog so still maturing Doc CC

The Welsh members of the Deerhound club arranged a picnic and it was amazing, home cooked ribS, Welsh honey cake and Pimms made it a very special picnic thank you to all who contributed and especially to Angela Aston who organised it.
The raffle was won and over £62 was donated to the Hounds for Heroes charity.
Great fun was had by all so enjoy the images, of course if anyone objects let me know and I will remove the offending picture but I do hope they are viewed in the spirit they were taken.
GET WELL TOM - WE HOPE YOU WILL BE SKIPPING AROUND SOON
