BEST OF BREED CLASS
Judge Jack McGuffin
BOB Ch. HAYIFA SHI'RAYÂN Bitch DOB August 27 1998 (owned and bred by Shi'Rayan) Among this very fine group of hounds, this particular champion bitch is my selection today for Best of Breed. In profile, she exhibits here such a well-knit, compact, ‘one-piece’ overall package she’s impossible for me to deny. Everything flows together here in a flawless harmony, and I find her thoroughly typical of a fine specimen of the breed. Beautiful proportions throughout including her beautiful head planes, expression and length of muzzle, strong neck well molded into the rest of her beautifully coupled and well-filled, molded body. Not as muscular as her Best of Opposite competitor here, but very appropriately feminine and difficult to fault, including her appropriately conservative and proper movement which thoroughly fits her overall package. A truly wonderful specimen deserving of the top award today.
Ch. LATIIFA SHI'RAYÂN Bitch 25 February
25, 2001 (Owned by Brady & Heyl, bred by Shi'Rayan) This is a very
elegant, stylish young champion bitch; gorgeously pigmented. Handsome
strong headpiece of good proportions going into a nice solid neck.
Plenty of width and substance and good height for her length. Front
assembly set too far forward, with not enough return of upper arm which
is her most significant shortcoming. Nice composition of topline, but slightly
too angulated in the rear. Would like to see her move off-lead to
get a better picture of how she uses herself.
