2006 EASTER CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
16 April 2006
JUDGE: MR KEITH BROWN (NZ)
BABY PUPPY DOG (1 entry)
1st – Hubertus Out Of The Blue (Pali) Baby Puppy In Show A very outstanding baby puppy for this age and a dog which should have a great future. This dog excels in movement and overall balance – one to watch out for in the future.
MINOR PUPPY DOG (1 entry)
1st – Hubertus Neversay Never (Winch & Johnson) Minor Puppy In Show Only the one today. A dog of nice balance, style. Needs more maturity in the front.
PUPPY DOG (1 entry)
1st – Hubertus Jackpot (Pali) Puppy In Show A dog of moderate proportions. His head shape is extremely good. His ear leathers are fine, his colour is good. I would just like this dog to be more settled in front movement, but overall, a nice Vizsla.
JUNIOR DOG (3 entries)
“A class I enjoyed very much”
1st – Hubertus Halmark Edition (Pali) A very noble dog of high order. This dog appealed to me in head balance, overall size and good movement. It was light and keen and he could do a good day’s work. Very nice Vizsla.
2nd – Tanashka Magus Krakajak (Quinn) A dog of similar proportions, of heavier breed type, but equally good on the move as the class winner.
3rd – Graebrook Dzyna Cochise (Graebrook Kennels) A dog of large proportions, not the head shape I’m looking for today, but also a nice Vizsla. Structurally on the move, very sound.
INTERMEDIATE DOG (4 entries)
1st – Belabartok Always Jethro (Taylor) He has overall balance and shape that I am looking for today. He excels in reach and drive and head proportions. Extremely nice Vizsla.
2nd – Hanafor Time To Declare (Harris) Similar dog, similar proportions, Vizsla slightly larger in size, but also a very nice Vizsla. Also excels in movement.
3rd – Kimlise Reilley Viane (Jolly) Unruly dog today, heavier overall built animal but his reach and drive being settled is equally as good as the second place getter. Slightly heavier in head and lacking the head proportions of first and second.
AUSTRALIAN BRED DOG (4 entries)
1st – Ch Hubertus Eagle Rock (Pali) Reserve Challenge Dog / Australian Bred In Show A dog of fabulous proportions for the breed. Of correct height standard. Excelled in movement front and rear. Another nice Vizsla.
2nd – Ch Tanashka Dzsentri Tomi (Hine) A slightly bigger dog, slightly strong in head proportions for me.
3rd – Vizamy Ash (Butler) Nice dog of good proportions but with perhaps too much loose skin on throat and could be sounder front and rear.
OPEN DOG (4 entries)
1st – Gr Ch Hanabrit Ponting The Way (Imp UK) (Harris) Challenge Dog RUNNER-UP BEST EXHIBIT IN SHOW This dog is a dog of noble order. He is extremely sound, front and rear. His head proportions are what I’m looking for today. He is in excellent condition, and an excellent size. This dog has a broken front tooth, he has broken it in the field I’d say, and it does not take away from his overall type of a Vizsla. This dog excelled in topline and tail-set.
2nd – Gr Ch Tanashka Red Ochre Bazel (Quinn) A dog of heavier build than my first place winner, but of equal proportions on the move fore and aft. A dog I am sure can do a day’s work in the field.
3rd – Ch Hubertus Double Trouble (Shaw) A dog of equally good proportions. 4.5 year old male, it’s a hair’s breadth trying to decide in this class. I liked all four males. This dog just letting himself down on the final move and he was out moved to this position.
4th – Ch Hubertus Whos The Boss (Pali) A dog I really did like the breed type on. A dog who was freaky on the move, it was just not his day. A shame for the owner and a shame for the dog.
VETERAN DOG (1 entry)
1st – Ch Willowbank Leigh Zircon CD ET (Kronast) One only. A dog who in his day would have been excellent in the field and excellent type. He has good proportions and in his day would have been great, and at 9.5 is still great and congratulations to his owner for keeping him in such excellent condition.
CHALLENGE DOG: “I moved the dogs for Challenge Dog. I tried to keep to similarity in type and size right through the classes, which was easy because you’ve got a very good consistency of breed type within the breed today. My dog ticket is the Open.”
BABY PUPPY BITCH (1 entry)
1st – Hubertus On The Avenue (Pali) One only. A baby of equal proportions that we would be looking for in a baby, and quite striking. I like her overall balance and her movement is etremely sound. One to watch in the future.
MINOR PUPPY BITCH (5 entries)
1st – Hanafor Dusis Talisker (Harris & Stading) A bitch of overall correct proportions, sound front and rear for her age. Head propertions I would like slightly better.
2nd – Gyldan Trad Sirena (Brooks) A bitch of equal proportions, lighter in build, more to what I like but this bitch needs to settle down on the move and needs a bit more work. I would also like her slightly shorter in foreface. Overall a nice Vizsla bitch.
3rd – Hanafor Dusis Danan (Harris & Stading) This bitch caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring. A vizsla bitch of the proportions and type that I prefer. She has white markings on her feet, and has paid a penalty for that in her placing. She is also at this moment a little loose in front and she just needs to settle. Overall, this is the type of Vizsla bitch that I’m looking for. We’ll see what maturity does.
PUPPY BITCH (0 entries)
JUNIOR BITCH (2 entries)
1st – Tanashka Magus Taita (Quinn & Hine) Junior In Show This bitch also caught my eye as she came in the ring. One of the first points that caught my eye was correct breed size. This bitch’s light movement fore and aft is what the Breed Standard looks for. She is lightly built of good proportions and a bitch that took my eye.
2nd – Hubertus In Fine Style (Pali) A bitch that is too large in size for what I’m looking for in the breed. She is inclined to be a bit long in body proportions and though the breed extension does ask for this, she is still longer than I am looking for. She has a very elegant neck into shoulder, but she also needs to settle on the move.
INTERMEDIATE BITCH (7 entries)
1st – Ch Tanashka Acepak Showgirl (Quinn) Reserve Challenge Bitch / Intermediate In Show This bitch excels in light movement. She has correct proportions that I’m looking for – slightly longer than in height. Her head is in correct balance, sound teeth with beautiful scissor bite. I’d like this bitch lighter in colour but that’s not to take away the overall elegant picture of this bitch.
2nd – Ch Hubertus Electric Dreams (Winch & Johnson) Another bitch of correct height-length proportions, correct colour, just not as together in topline on the move. I’d like it stronger, a bit of field work would strengthen this bitch.
3rd – Hanafor Ysabeau Ysabelet (Kronast) A bitch of heavier proportions than my other two place getters, but this does not take away from her overall balance on the move. Another nice bitch.
AUSTRALIAN BRED BITCH (4 entries)
1st – Gr Ch Hubertus Miss Moneypenny (Shaw) Another elegant bitch, who on final decision won this class for reach in front and more drive from behind on the move. She was lighter, had beautiful neck into shoulder placement and that has won her place on the day.
2nd – Ch Tanashka Magus Lana (Quinn & Gregor) Of equal proportions to the first, but slightly heavier in shoulder.
3rd – Ch Lianadam Arany Manci ET (Croatto) A bit of good breed type. Not in the working condition of the first and second place getters.
OPEN BITCH (3 entries)
1st – Ch Graebrook Dzina Mzooni (Graebrook Kennels) Challenge Bitch / Open in Show BEST EXHIBIT IN SHOW This bitch caught my eye as soon as she came into the ring with her overall balance, type and movement. She is right up there on the height standard, but she is built to work all day. Very elegant noble bitch.
2nd – Ch Tanashka Dzsentri Klara (Quinn) Of equal proportions, slightly better tail-set than the winner, but I preferred #1 on the move on the day. Also a very elegant noble bitch.
3rd – Ch Hubertus Madison Avenue (Pali) A bitch of size proportions, but not the happiest on the day and could be in ‘female working order”.
VETERAN BITCH (2 entries)
1st – Ch Hubertus Queen Of Hearts (Blaik) Veteran In Show A bitch of light proportions, a noble outlook and a grand lady. She has a missing tooth from running into a fence, but that does not take away her overall breed type. A very nice bitch in her day I’m sure.
2nd – Ch Hubertus Misty Morn (Blaik) A bitch of heavier proportions. She is 10 years old, but I’m sure she was an elegant lady in her day and I’m sure she has made a failful companion for her owner, one I’m sure he’s very proud of because she’s a real working lady.
CHALLENGE BITCH: “The line-up for best bitch. These bitches are very very nice indeed and the bitch I’ve chosen today has excellent in light movement, she is big enough but I can’t fault judge on one point. The bitch is sheer noble elegance”
