Side 154 - 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-kneed and dew-lapp'd like Thessalian bulls ; Slow in pursuit, but match'd in mouth like bells, Each under each.
Side 332 - ... scimitar, the tip, when excited, being in a perpendicular line with the root of the tail. It should neither be set on too high nor too low. When not excited it is carried gaily, and a little above the level of the body.
Side 333 - This is a very important point ; the hair should be about 2in. long, that from skull to root of tail a mixture of hardish and soft hair, which gives a sort of crisp feel to the hand. The hard should not be wiry; the coat is what is termed pily or pencilled. The hair on the under part of the body is lighter in colour and softer than on the top. The skin on the belly accords with the colour of the dog.
Side 350 - stop ' should be apparent ; but there should be more dip in the profile, between the forehead and top jaw, than is seen in the case of a greyhound. The...

When in motion it should be curved when excited, in no case to be lifted out of the line of the back. It should be well covered with hair, on the inside thick and wiry, underside longer, and towards the end a slight fringe not objectionable. A curl or ring tail very undesirable.
Side 68 - ... particularly so when the head is carried low ; the skin then falls into loose pendulous ridges and folds, especially over the forehead and sides of the face. Nostrils. — The nostrils are large and open. Lips, Flews, and Dewlap. — In front the lips fall squarely, making a right angle with the upper line of the fore-face ; whilst behind they form deep hanging flews, and being continued into the pendant folds of loose skin about the neck, constitute the dewlap, which is very pronounced. These...
Side 351 - He will thus attain the highest degree of propelling power, together with the greatest length of stride that is compatible with the length of his body. Weight is not a certain criterion of a terrier's fitness for his work. General shape, size, and contour are the main points ; and if a dog can gallop and stay, and follow his fox, it matters little what his weight is to a pound or so, though, roughly speaking, it may be said he should not scale over 2olb. in show condition.
Side 249 - Very powerful and muscular, wide, and fully developed. " Stern. — -Well set on, and carried low, if possible below the level of the back, in a perfectly straight line, or with a slight downward inclination ; never elevated above the back, and in action always kept low ; nicely fringed, with wavy feather of silky texture. " Feet and Legs. — Feet not too small and well protected between the toes with soft feather ; good strong pads. Legs straight and immensely boned, strong and short, and nicely...
Side 68 - Foreface. — The foreface is long, deep, and of even width throughout, with square outline when seen in profile. Eyes. — The eyes are deeply sunk in the orbits, the lids assuming a lozenge or diamond shape, in consequence of the lower lids being dragged down and everted by the heavy flews.
