VETERAN DOG

 

1st & BVIS GILBERT'S Ch Scaramis Gettin'Hot Hot (imp Fin)

This dog really impressed me, 12 years old, hat off to him and his owner for excellent condition both coat and muscle wise, I must say his muscle tone was better then many of the youngsters. Strong and masculine, with a lovely forechest, exellent top line for age, excellent croup and tail, strong hindquarters. He moves with attitude and spring, really a pleasure to watch him.

 

2nd. CULLEN'S Ch Syrdarya Toffy Pop at Eweyisska

Lovely type, masculine head, exclellent expression with almond shaped dark eyes, ex lay back of shoulder and return of upper arm, ex bones, top line and tail. Lovely coat texture. On the move he shows a bit of lack in muscle tone and a bit lazy, even though he has a sound easy and balanced movement.

Excellent type all over, excellent head with strong underjaw, exc dark almond eyes, ex neck which follows perfectly into strong shoulder, good bones, ex forechest, strong topline, ex croup and long tail, strong hindquarters and low hocks. He covers a lot of ground on the move, with powerfull long steps, unfortunately he decided to keep his tail down on the day and didn't show any attitude at all, which was really a shame for such a beautifull Afghan, I would also suggest a better grooming.
