SKC MAY 2018-MANCHESTER TERRIERS Limit Dog (3 entries ) 1st Straughan & Cripps Talanors In For a Treat –decent head, a bit untidy in front, good rear, a little proud of his tail. 2nd Gray & Travis’s Brockanella Hector Von Clanmarshal-presented a good outline standing and ok in head. Was not great up or back which lost him the class. Open Dog (2 entries) 1st Walshaw’s Ch Talanors Diamonds N’Dreams Avec Janmark-super headed boy with great ears which he carried well and used well. Really alert. Great condition, excellent rear, slight rise over the loin. A bit proud of his tail. CC 2nd Church’s Rattustrap Charlie Brown- good type, not quite the substance of the winner, good condition, a bit wide in front. Veteran Dog (1 entry) 1st Olbinson & Kelly’s Paucelin Andoni at Carapast-impressed me, he is a good sort, nice outline and proportions, good weight and muscles for his age and put on a good performance. Res CC and I see that he placed 4th in the veteran group. Well done. Puppy Bitch ( 1 entry) 1st Dale, Saxton & Emrick’s Rattustrap Bitter’N Twisted (AI)-my notes just said super. Stood alone but would have had my full attention anyway. Classic head, gorgeous outline and proportions, great coat and condition with the correct markings, moved well in all directions and as steady as a rock. Super tail carriage and very forward for a puppy. I was so taken with her that she won the CC and BOB. Just lovely. Junior Bitch (2entries, 1 absent) 1st Olbinson & kelly’s Rattustrap Citra at Carapast-nice sort, lovely head, good outline, a bit proud of her tail, good type. Post Graduate Bitch ( 2 entries) 1st Knight’s Talanors Typically Special-super type, feminine with it, good outline, a bit lazy with her ears but the background noise meant that several were flying ears today. Lovely rich tan. 2nd Gray & Travis Ruffagga Ghealaich Bhaigh Von Clanmarshal-not the most confident and will do better with a bit of schooling. Good body condition. Limit Bitch ( 1 entry ) 1st Walshaw’s Janmark Back T’Black –nice outline and a delightful temperament, showing well, flying her ears a bit. Good rear movement, I liked her type and she was in hard condition. Open Bitch (6 entries, 1 absentee ) 1st Knight’s Talanors Diamond Treat –nice type and put in a steady performance to take the class, I liked her head and her overall look, a touch reserved on the move but steady enough. Res CC 2nd Oxley’s Ch Digelsa D’Amour –standing she looked like the winner. Lovely outline, correct proportions and a good mover. Unfortunately was not happy on the table which cost her today. Unlucky. Paul Eardley
