Side 158 - My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind, So flew'd, so sanded ; and their heads are hung With ears that sweep away the morning dew ; Crook-knee'd, and dew-lapp'd like Thessalian bulls ; Slow in pursuit, but match'd in mouth like bells, Each under each.
Side 211 - The Teeth very strong, especially the canine, which are of extraordinary size for such a small dog. The canines fit well into each other, so as to give the greatest available holding and punishing power, and the teeth are level in front, the upper ones very slightly overlapping the under ones. [Many of the finest specimens have a "swine mouth...
Side 212 - ... the back rather low at the shoulder, having a slight downward curve and a corresponding arch over the loins, with a very slight gradual drop from top of loins to root of tail ; both sides of backbone well supplied with muscle. Tail. — Rather short, say from Sin.
Side 211 - Head. — Strongly made and large, not out of proportion to the dog's size, the muscles showing extraordinary development, more especially the maxillary. Skull broad between the ears, getting gradually less towards the eyes, and measuring about the same from the inner corner of the eye to back of skull as it does from ear to ear.
Side 137 - The jaw should be strong and muscular, but not too full in the cheek; should be of fair punishing length, but not so as in any way to resemble the greyhound or modern English terrier. There should not be much falling away below the eyes ; this part of the head should, however, be moderately chiselled out, so as not to go down in a straight slope like a wedge.
Side 232 - The face should bear a very sharp, bright, and active expression, and the head should be carried up. The dog (owing to the shortness of his coat) should appear to be higher on the leg than he really is ; but, at the same time, he should look compact, and possessed of great muscle in his hindquarters.
Side 211 - EARS — Pendulous, set well back, wide apart and low on the skull, hanging close to the cheek, with a very slight projection at the base, broad at the junction of the head and tapering almost to a point, the fore part of the ear tapering very little, the...
Side 223 - Both fore and hind legs should be moved straight forward when travelling, the stifles not turned outwards, the legs free of feather and covered like the head, with as hard a texture of coat as body, but not so long. Coat. — Hard and wiry, free of softness or silkiness, not so long as to hide the outlines of the body, particularly in the hindquarters, straight and flat, no shagginess, and free of lock or curl. Colour. — Should be '*whole coloured," the most desirable being bright red; next wheaten,...
Side 78 - The texture and feather of coat (value 5) are much regarded among setter breeders, a soft silky hair without curl being considered a sine qua non. The feather should be considerable, and should fringe the hind as well as the fore legs.
Side 239 - The coat should be long, silky, soft, and wavy, but not curly. In the Blenheim there should be a profuse mane, extending well down in front of the chest. The feather should be well displayed on the ears and feet, where it is so long as to give the appearance of their being webbed.
