WOW!!! Our sweetie Talulah of the Hellacious Acres had her FIRST
Championship Show at 11 months of age and made an impressive start
with WINNING 1st Excellent in the Junior class !
‘Tulah’ is by Multi Ch Majik Finders Keepers ex our Morwenna of the Hellacious Acres.
Our already good day ,got even better with our bubbly Lyric enjoying EVERY minute of her special time in the ring and WINNING 1st Excellent in the Intemediate class with the CAC & VDH awards.
Our young Ozi became 3rd Excellent in the Junior class.
He moved superbly around the big grassy ring but decided he didnt want to eat having far too many butterflies in his stomach with all those girls in season at home and then having met another on heat at the show .....
Fuller was also far too distracted by girls to contemplate food as his reward for standing free or stacked .... so we had to do it without!! The judge wrote :
“impressive dog on the move, with good forward reach and super hind extension, balanced in his angulation both front and rear, firm in topline, has a good head shape and kind expression” and awarded him 1st Excellent in the Intermediate class with the CAC & VDH awards.
Haydn of the Hellacious Acres belonging to Sven and Alexandra Budde won 1st Excellent in the Champion class.
Ramchaine Parrot Fashion was shortlisted down to the last 5 from a big Open class of 19 bitches. ‘Scarlett’ looked fantastic and in full bloom in the ring standing but chose to play the fool, and kangaroo hop and jump on the move ..... !!!!
She had the best critique of the day .....
Quality cream girl of 2 years. Well matured for her age. Superb in construction.
Very beautiful silhuoette. Very well balanced angulations. Wonderful head with
excellent proportions. Full and correct bite. Beautiful expression and eyes.
Excellent length of neck with a dream of shoulder. Excellent bone and substance.
Excellent rib cage. Deep chest. Well developed in body for age. Wonderful level
topline with perfect tailset. Very nice underline. Excellent hindquarters. Well
muscled behind. Perfect hocks. Excellent coat quality. Very good movement and
drive with good head and tail carriage. But needs more training to show all her
great points as difficult to judge her movement when her attractability to the
handler is so high”
Our star of the day was proudest moment was in our young
Talulah of the Hellacious Acres winning BEST BITCH !!!
