The pups were out in force at the Deerhound Club Championship Show. This was held in conjunction with the Hound Show at Stafford. The pups travelled from Scotland, Milton Keynes and from Hay-on-Wye to meet up. Leaving Cusidh Ring Around the Sun to look after things at Cusidh base camp.
The pups are now eight months old and coming along well and seem to have enjoyed all outings so far. First in the ring was Cusidh Drawing Down the Sun (or Wee Dram). Standing is still proving something of a challenge for this boy but apart from that he was ever so good and won Puppy Dog and then went on again to win Best Puppy. Congratulations. Both Treacle Moon (owned and handled by Jennefer Cooper) and Dreaming Spirit (Rosie) were in a class of 11 entries for Puppy Bitch and were fourth and second respectively. Well done girls.
The pups Dad Cusidh Homecoming (Ronan) was also there to keep an eye on them and he managed a good thrid place in Limit Dog. We had a lovely day and thank you to Judge Ms Kay Barret. Please click on the read more for a couple more photos and show critique.

The Judges (Kay Barret's) critique of Cusidh Drawing Down the Sun was "Such a very attractive puppy, just how he should look at eight months, curvy and rounded, lovely head and expression, dark eyes, nice small ears, well-balanced, good front and rear angulation, good body, nice feet, all enhanced by a typical puppy coat, moved well coming and going and in profile, very easy relaxed mover. BP."
The critique for Cusidh Dreaming Spirit was " Cartmell’s Cusidh Dreaming Spirit. Bigger bitch but still curvy and feminine, marginally preferred the head of 1 but lovely expression with dark eyes, nice small ears, neck could be stronger but she’s only a baby, good front angulation with forechest, good ribcage and topline, nice bend of stifle and width across thigh, low hocks, very good coat, moved well all round and really strode out in profile movement."
