Judge: Mr B Fritz (Germany)

What an enjoyable day I had, a super entry these days with so many beautiful Deerhounds present! Almost all exhibits were presented in very good condition. Some lighter eyes than prefered and do not forget that the ears should be rose-shaped. Construction was overall very good. Temperaments? A subject which should never be questioned in Deerhounds. Very happy to see my BOB placed second in a very strong Hound Group.

1 Mckinnon's Finlas At Claonaiglen, I noticed his potential when he was a youngster and I gave him a third out off three, since then he settled. Lovely head with super ears, strong neck, well made body. He still behaves like a stallion and I guess he is anything else but easy to handle but there is so much quality. He moves very sound from all angles and reminds me in some ways Earl II, drawn by Arthur Wardle. CC
2 Finnett's & Heathcote's Hyndsight Desperado a lot to like about him, very curvy, strong neck, pleasing head, very well angulated, would just like to see him move with more ease and stretch out more in the rear. Res. CC

1 Peach's Blixten Star To Kilbourne (Imp) Haven't seen an eleven month old bitch showing so much quality for a long time. Beautiful head and expression, body all curves, moves ever so sound and presented in ever so good condition.
2 Lewis's Luckhurst Paloma another eleven month old youngster of different type. At the moment a bit too moderate in front and rear. Strong head and very hard condition, harsh coat.

1 Helps' Beardswood Taisie Very nice outlines. Good proportions and very balanced build. Feminine expression and dark eyes. Lovely bitch to go over but her ears are not her fortune.
2 Mckinnon's Caonaiglen Carron A workman-like type bitch, very sound mover, medium hazel coloured eyes, a bit too much top-line from my point off view.
