Judge's Critique


Thank you to the Officers & Committee of Four Counties Beagle Club for the honour of judging the Dogs at their 50th Anniversary show & their hospitality at their very well run & friendly show & the exhibitors for allowing me to go over their dogs. A couple of points to watch are front construction & several hounds were moving close behind. Also I must thank my Steward Helen Johnson for the professional way she kept the ring running smoothly all day with a lovely smile.


I came together with my co judge Dawn Banks for judging the top awards & we both agreed that BIS should go to the beautiful bitch Havard's Ch Annavah Knick Knack, we could not agree on RBIS & the Referee Tommy Anderson was called upon & he awarded this to the RBB Parker & Stevens Serenaker Maid In America, I loved this bitch who had super true parallel movement going away from me which I have not seen for such a long long time in a beagle but I felt she needs a few more months of maturity. We both agreed on the Dog for BPIS Philpott Charterwood Sovereign & the Veteran Dog Goldberg's Molesend Kaftan JW ShCM  for BVIS.

I would like to thank the committee for inviting me as one of the late replacement judges for the 50th Anniversary Show. I would like to say thank you especially to the exhibitors that entered for the original judge but continued to support the Club at their show. A lovely entry made for some difficult decisions in some of the classes and some beautiful hounds going cardless.
