Best Puppy Leeds .well grown for 8 months, correct conformation & it shows on the move, dead sound, good long head, nice outline with substance & bone, most promising baby.

SKC Puppy Bitch

Caroline Sheppard

Very shapely, well-balanced, quality puppy, well-grown for her 8 months.  I really liked her substance and curves.  Well-furnished head, long neck into good shoulders, good depth of body and strong bone.  Unfortunately, she was somewhat over-awed on the day and not showing herself to advantage on the move, or standing.  Conformationally, she shows a lot of promise and when she settles and learns to enjoy her showing, should have a bright future.

Fran's Critique...Gabby is an angel she is so gentle and loving and we adore her. A very special little lady with the sweetest face. She melts my heart with her smile.

DSCF6945 (Small).JPG (43654 bytes) Bribiba's Ebony Moon..VHC Cruft's 2010

Caroline Sheppard

This tall elegant, young lady has just reached the gangly stage - which at her age indicates to me that she has the potential to mature into a very impressive and houndy adult.  Loved her overall proportions and long bones.  In excellent muscular condition and moved out very well.  She needs to let down behind for balance, but there is a lot of scope there and I think she will have a bright future.

IRMGARD de HANN (Holland)

dark brindle, very nice head & expression, good bone & feet, correct top & underline, correct angulated front & rear, moved with drive.

Ellis Hulme

Typy 7-months old, plenty of substance, learning the job well, not as far on as winner.

Fran's Critique....Ebony is a fabulous girl she learns quickly and is always desperate to please us, though she gets it wrong every day with her chewing! We have to laugh at her though, surrounded by a mound of foam or feathers from a pillow or a teddy bear she has ripped to shreds....well it cleans up. After all she is our wonderful baby girl. **********************************************

3rd Junior. L.K.A. 2006


Ellis Hulme

PGB   Attractive sizes, type and quality. approaching maturity well, typical head, well set neck, nicely angulated front and rear, deep body, good legs and feet, used herself well moving with freedom and accuracy.

Stuart Milner

Rainbow on her 2nd birthday.

Nice type, pleasing head, good neck and outline, well turned stifle, sound both ways.

John Lewington ( Australia)

This was the strongest class. A wonderful class with some absolutely lovely bitches.

A bigger girl who pushed 1st very close. She had a bit more substance, lovely head, beautiful front and bone, good topline, strong hindquarters. Just a little bit shorter coupled than 1

Mrs. J Peak 

Another quality bitch of good type. Nice head, well balanced with a nice eye. Good neck and front angulation, good legs and feet. Strong body, good topline and quarters. Went well.

Cruft's 2007

Another typical strong hound with a lot to like about her, good head, good depth and spring of rib. A little flat in topline with good underline. Once she settles she moves well.


Pleasing head and length of neck. Nice shoulder. Good body and quarters. 

Moved quite steadily

Sheila McDonald ...East of Scotland

14 month feminine bitch following in her fathers footsteps with good quarters, bone and substance, lost to dad on maturity.

Fran's Critique....

Rainbow was everything you would want in a wolfhound, gentle, loving , happy and she had such a lovely smile. She was always playing with her brother Toby or looking for squirrels  to chase in the forest. I have to admit she was another special girl. Bill has no favorites he loves all his pack with a passion...including me!

Stuart Milner

Nice masculine head, good eye, strong neck. Would like just a little more width in quarters. Nice coat, sound mover.

Jeff Horswell

Toby 18 months

Big dog.  Is a very true mover.  Fair head, long neck. Fair front, bit flat in topline. Well bent stifle. Well muscled. Coat a bit soft.

A 12 month grey brindle a bit to square in outline and not the size of the first placed dog, has good head proportions, a dark eye and the correct bite and coat texture. Good depth of brisket well ribbed back but short in loin. Reasonable quarters and moved a little close behind.

Per Lundström

very good size and proportions, very good head and expression, a bit upright in pasterns, could have a better laid back shoulder, excellent body and bone, nicely angulated in rear but a bit cow hocked on the day. Moves easy but could carry himself better.

Fran's Critique....

Toby, is a wonderful boy full of life and fun. He is as daft as a brush and he makes us laugh so often with the silly things he does. His favourite is to lay his head on our shoulder and cuddle. He is my very special boy, as for showing he will not go in the ring with me and if I try, he rears up on his back legs and pulls me out, he shows beautifully for his daddy!

Fran's Critique....

What can we say about Indi...He is just one of the best things in our lives, he brightens our day with his big happy grin.  He loves his family around him except on a Saturday morning, Indi is usually glued to the back gate waiting to go to town with us, he thinks it is his right to be the one who gets to go and we have a job moving him, if it is not his turn. He is just so precious to me and again he is my favourite boy

2nd to Megan in Post Grad at Hound Association of Scotland 2006

Jerry Robertson

Pleasing head neck and topline. Still to drop in chest. Fair quarters, moved ok.

Stuart Milner

Very nice and typy, totally different to the winner-not only in colour but style. Very sound and I liked her a lot.

 Per Lundström

a nice wheaten bitch which didn’t show with confidence. Think she was a bit unhappy with the church bells. Very good head and expression with excellent pigmentation, very good angulations.

Fran's Critique....

Morgan was trouble from day one, but not in a nasty way...she is our tomboy and will never make it in the 'lady' stakes. Morgan loves to get dirty, chase squirrels, play-fight with anyone who gets in her way. She loves to run and loves to cuddle with us. 

Her strawberry and cream colour coat is just beautiful when she is about to go into the show ring but any other time ...well she is our tomboy! I cannot tell you how this girl got under my skin and into my heart but she is there to stay.

VHC post grad Crufts 2006cf

1st Post Grad at Hound Association of Scotland

Jerry Robertson

Post grad bitch

Nice head, neck and shoulder. Deep chest, would like a little more length of body. Nice quarters  Moved steady.

Megan is not to keen on showing after she got a fright when a tent blew over in front of her. We took her to Belfast and she was not happy in the ring so we won't show her again.

Fran's Critique....

Megan Rose pretty as a picture, lives life in the fast lane, (or a muddy ditch) a great pack leader, kindness itself yet she keeps those boys in place and protects her girls with such love. We are so privileged to have her in our family. 

My Megan Rose I adore you and love you with all my heart.


wpe4A.jpg (32287 bytes) Bribiba Harry Potter

1st Junior SKC 2003

Dagmar Kenis Pordham

Tall and imposing light brindle dog. Strong head level bite. Neck strong but could be longer Nice muscular front excellent bone and feet. Nice firm topline wide well muscled hindquarters moved powerfully and well.

Fran's Critique..                        

Harry was just wonderful, he loved his home and family, he loved to be out pottering about on the hills, yes he did Potter!  Running was not a word you would associate with Harry, he ambled along at his own pace and may break into a trot to keep up with non-stop Megan. He adored all our visitors and was always first at the gate to say hello, yet he did not like crowds and his show career was over before it started, he was happier at home and we respected his wishes.  My big special Mr. Potter who's favourite spot was on our bed!
