Yorkshire Afghan Hound Society  24th July 2021

 

DOGS

 

Thank you to the Society for the invitation to judge. Whilst the entry was numerically average I did find at least 5 dogs I would be happy to award a CC to, which cannot be too bad from only 24 males present. Type is very varied as to be expected with such a mixture of different bloodlines these days but I always judge the dogs on the day as I see them, and not on pedigrees.

 

Veteran 4 (3)

1st Cullens Syrdarya Toffy Pop At Eweyisska  This 9yr old brindle instantly attracts with his balanced outline free from exaggerations, beautiful in head with lovely detailing, reachy neck super front and balanced hindquarters, in lovely condition and moved out well.

 

Puppy 4

!st Davies Rhajikhan Adrastus Taf  Upstanding brindle, very houndy in appearance masculine head good reach of neck, good shoulder topline and depth of chest moved out well and soundly. BPD & BPIS

2nd Hills & Thornton Absolute Afghan’s Djibouti At Karnak (imp Nor) Taf  Blk/Masked gold of substance carried himself well showing confidence and presence, had super front topline and ribbing balanced hindquarters and sound coming and going still raw at the moment but that’s no bad thing.

1st Parsell Beanland & Thornton Gezancol Never Say Never At Harlextan. Classic Blk/masked gold dog who catches the eye with his style and presence masculine head, good neck, correct front, deep chest, level topline and well angulated, covering the ground with ease, very promising youngster.

Graduate 1

1st Mitchell & Smithson Zandahar Xplosive Storm Attractive grizzle dog of ideal size and proportion, particularly good outline lovely head, good front, topline and hindquarters tends to put up a fight with his handler but when settled has a good easy action on the move.

 

Post Graduate 4

1st Thompson Drishaun The Vampire Lily Via Gothika JW Very attractive gold male who is maturing into a handsome dog, masculine head, lovely expression strong muscular neck excellent front, topline and ribbing good hind angulation tail set with ring. Super mover with long easy strides and excellent carriage, this dog is going to have an excellent future. Most worthy Champion. My Res CC winner today.

Limit 3 (1)

1st Lancashire & O’Donnell Drishaun Fair As A Lily JW Most attractive self masked cream who appealed instantly. So well put together from his lovely detailed head to his ring tail. He moves out well and showed with much style, a lovely dog shown with body, muscle and coat condition as were all from this kennel.

2nd  Abrey Karagez Tame The World A bigger more upstanding male who has a real quality look about him, masculine head strong neck, good depth and ribbing balanced fore and aft, lovely spring to his gait, unlucky to come up against 1st today.

 

Open 5 (1)

Four very nice dogs here, very different but all have something to offer, my decision based purely on todays performance.

1st Wright Thomas & Boieck Vdh Uk Ir Ch Int Ch Agha Djari’s Lonesome Cowboy (imp Deu) Such a strikingly handsome male who displays such pride of race at all times no mistaking his gender. Masculine head dark eye super expression that dares you to touch him. Strong long neck to a sound well angulated front, excellent spring of rib and depth of chest, level topline and well angulated rear. Long Tail carried well. His movement when he settles to the job in hand displays such reach drive and spring to it, shown in rock hard condition and excellent coat. CC & BIS on Referees decision. Congratulations many more to come I’m sure.

2nd Lancashire & O”Donnell Drishaun Star Among Lilies JW How this brindle dog has improved, looking rather the handsome grown-up now, masculine outlook, super front and rear construction, shown in excellent body and coat, he was the third brother from this litter here today all super well made dogs worthy of their titles.

3rd Bloor Pashtari Lord Byron made up a trio of lovely dogs.
