Hound Show Classic 2011

Hound Classic 2011 - Breeder/judge Mrs. Bitte Ahrens-Primavera from Italy from the world famous SOBERS hounds.

My Ibizan hound Best in Sweeps winner: Ch. Ahram Orion Booger Butt - One of my favorites from the show. This dog is one of the best Ibizan hounds I have seen. A very correct male with super movement and wonderful temperament. Would have liked to take this one home with me.

My Best in Sweeps winner Salukis: Z'BEE'S TAWADI SHE'S THE ONE , HP37835902 3/8/2010. Breeder: Deric & Pierson Aube. By CH Akissia Truly Madly Deeply -- CH Z'Bee's Ivana Of Walkirk. Kathy Hawk & Deric Aube - a beautiful saluki lady with the most beautiful head and expression and very sound movement.

My 3 winners in the group ring - Saluki, Whippet and Basenji

Hound Show Classic 2011

In April this year I had the honor to judge Basenjis, Borzois, Salukis, Ibizan hound and Whippet Sweepstakes at the hound classic. This was a wonderful experience and it was a pleasure to see all the beautiful hounds. This show is one of the best organized shows I have seen and the quality of the dogs was very high and not to forget to mention the excellent presentation, grooming and condition of most dogs.

My BOB whippet "Brady" Ch. Oxford Rowingdale Fearless a very nice strong but elegant male with a lovely outline and very sound movement.

My BOS in sweeps Whippet: Zafara's Cat In The Hat, "Carlie" from the 6-9 month puppy bitch class. She is out of: Ch. Summit Sorcerer's Apprentice ROM "Merlin" x Ch. Endeavor's Alibi of Brushwood "Kitty" (litter sister to "Moxi") a very elegant feminine bitch, I love her type and beautiful lines. She moved so beautiful for such a young puppy.

Choosing my winners - I would like to mention the excellent presentation of the dogs and most of my dogs in the ring showed a very correct movement.

Concentration, judging is a serious job - behind me on the table my BISweeps winner.
