And the final dog in the 15 highlighted breeds to not be awarded its BOB at Crufts 2012 was the Basset Hound Ch Buzz Lightyear at Dereheath.
Pictures of the dog - revealing a typical show Basset - can be found here. Again, I think the most likely reason was ectropion. I actually didn't see a Basset at Crufts today without it.
The Bloodhound BOB, however, passed - Ch Marksbury Serious of Maplemead. I was ringside to see her win and had a chance to say hello to her afterwards. She's a lovely, friendly, unexaggerated bitch with better-than-average eyes for a Bloohound (and there were some shockers there). Everyone was convinced ringside that the Bloodhound BOB would fail, whichever dog won, so I imagine that they were pleased.
There's a picture of Marsbury Serious of Maplemead here (third pic down, winning BIS at the Association of Bloodhound Breeders Champ Show last September). She looks pretty good, doesn't she?
Post mortem on what will surely go down as one of the most extraordinary Crufts ever to come... plus some pix I haven't yet had a chance to upload...
Edit 15/3: an anonymous comment to the blog today (15/3) maintains that ectropion was not the reason for the dog's DQ so I have tweaked the copy above. Although without further, non-anon evidence, it is impossible to say either way for sure.
