North Of England Scottish Terrier Club

Breed: Scottish Terrier

I felt so honoured to be invited to judge the 76th Championship Show for this long established club. I had some lovely Scotties present and the sporting exhibitors made for a great day. My two excellent stewards kept everything running smoothly.

Special Triers Dog or Bitch

Webster’s Glengracie Miss Mercury of Pepilarue. Strongly made and really scored here with her excellent, mature body and rib. Clean head, dark intelligent eye, nose pigmentation could be darker. Good neck and shoulders. Smart and free moving. Good coat.

Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Gift. Giving away a lot in age here. Decent head and expression, uses her ears well. Presents a nice outline with her short back and well set tail. Sound and free moving.

McNiven’s Frazandmitch All Eyes On Me


Minor Puppy

Lockwood’s Filisite Brash Rare Treasure at Lochgems. The first of four puppies here today and they all had some promise. Attractive head and expression. Short coupled, with good body and ribbing for age. Strong hindquarters gave him some drive on the move. His jacket is a good texture.


Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Ruffian. Litter brother to Royal Gift I see, like him she is shapely with a strong, short loin, excellent topline and tailset. Moderate neck which she uses to advantage. Pleasing head and expression. Good mouth. Very typical.

Norton’s Divadell’s Charging Bear. Nicely balanced head with keen, dark eye. Good bone, legs and feet. Not quite the body of the winner which made him appear a little longer cast. Excellent topline and tailset. Strong, well muscled hindquarters.

Patchett’s Divadell Who’s To Say to Skircoat


McNiven’s Frazandmitch Top of the Game. Masculine, clean head of good length. Dark, well set eye. Shapely but could be a tad firmer in topline and have a little more body but this should come with maturity.

Post Graduate

Tyler & Chapman’s Berrybreeze Spirit Master. Lengthy, masculine head with a grand expression. Good forehand with some breadth of chest. Well boned with good legs and feet. Well ribbed and short coupled with excellent topline and tailset. Nice hindquarters with plenty behind the tail. Moved out well.

Norton’s Divadell’s Charging Bear


Chapman & Lidgett’s Berrybreeze Magical Spirit. I would happily have signed a CC for this dog. Attractive, masculine head with a keen intelligent expression. Strong, sturdy well slung body with good breadth of chest and excellent topline and tailset. Short coupled and ribs extend well back. Very good hindquarters with plenty behind the tail. Presented in first class coat and condition. Sound and free moving.

McCracken’s Our Black Jack for Amawyn. Clean, well proportioned head, strong moderate neck and good shoulders. Well ribbed and with good topline and tailset.

Norton’s Divadell’s Charging Bear


A strong, hotly contested class containing some very classy dogs.

Good forehand with strong neck, good shoulders and a strong, nicely ribbed, well slung body. Perfect topline and tailset. Strong, well muscled hindquarters gave him some push on the move. Harsh coat presented to best advantage.

Clean, nicely proportioned head, dark eye and strong jaws. Good forehand with quality bone and feet. Well ribbed and short coupled. Presents a most pleasing outline and he is sound and free moving.

Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Gift
