©Dewerstone from the group judgeed by Knut Sigurd Wiberg, this is his critique from the group judging:
Hound Group
This was one of the better hound group I have judge, but in the end I could only place four. The group
belonged to the Whippet Ch Adagio Crowdstopper from the second he entered the ring. I loved his com-
bination of muscular strength and elegance and was totally taken by his showmanship and presence.
How often do you see a Whippet stride out like this. Yes, he was professionally handled, but this dog
behaved as if he could have done it all by himself. His graceful lines and curves are to die for and I was
excited to see him winning RBIS. I heard after the show that he was going home to Sweden and I was
touched when I saw that his departure brought tears to the eyes of his English foster parents.
I am sure this classy dog will be heavily missed. Kanix know what it is all about because we felt the
same when our Pointer had to go back to New Zealand at the end of 2007.

Mark Cocozza's critique from Dog World:
Open Dog (12,1) "1. Raaghammer's Ch Adagio Crowdstopper. His movement is in a league of its own.
Nothing came close from all angles, and he holds his head and topline perfectly on the move.
He is elegant and typical all through with no exaggerations.

The group judge report in Dog World:  Ken Sinclair, the judge of the hound group at City of
Birmingham show 2012; ""Hound group. A good group at this most prestigious show. Several
I have already awarded top honours before. The ultimate winner was Sw/Dan Ch Adagio
Crowdstopper, whippet, I gave this super dog the Ch stakes earlier this year. It is his overall
complete balance, make & shape that pleases the eye instantly, never stands wrong, just
flows on the move, in superb condition & expertly handled."
