National Terrier Club

Breed: Puppy ,veteran and Ch Stakes

National Terrier Puppy Stakes.

MPD: 1 JENKIN’S Kinsridge Chainmail. Norfolk. Red dog who is still very raw. He has a super head and expression, with broad skull and correct head proportions. Good strength of muzzle. Nice neck and shoulder. Short backed. Good hind quarters. Moved well with drive but just needs time. Played up his handler in the final as he could have pushed his kennel mate harder. 2. Wilberg’s Kanix Roger. T/W SFT. Another raw one who needs a lot of time to finish. Good length of backskull and foreface in correct proportions. Nicely chiselled. Keen dark eye. Needs to settle into his ears. Clean front. Still has some knuckle so some growing to do. Short back with plenty behind the tail. Moved ok. 3. JORDAN-SMIT’S Jordith Roll Up and Shine. Border.

PD: MCKAY’S Redesholt Han Solo. Promising smart border of quality. Typical head. Moderate throughout. Nice bone and feet. Typical hindquarters. In good pelt and jacket and is obviously worked hard as in good hard condition. Moved well. HERBERTS’S Riskerytree Dave’s Allen. Skye. Overall of good proportions and balance. Powerful head of good length. Nice eye. Correct ear placement and nice fringing. Long and low with level back. Short loin Needs to settle on the move. MORRIS AND JEFFERSON’S Chandlimore pass the buck to Mycalleys.

MPB: Big class with some promising puppies. I make no apology for placing a Norfolk Terrier first to third as I had some super specimens, and they all deserved their placings. JENKIN’S 1. Kinsridge Brownie Point. Similar to her kennel mate this bitch excelled in head and expression which is very typical and feminine. Good length of neck into correct shoulder placement. Correct front assembly. Good for bone. Short backed with good hindquarters. I had judged her a few weeks previously and she has now settled into her job a little better, and she moved very well fore and aft. Best Puppy. 2. THOMPSON-MORGAN’S Belleville Hope Star. Another nice young bitch who is full of quality. She also has a pleasing head and expression with neat ears well placed. Good front assembly. Pleasing overall proportions. Foot fall is correct. She is in a good harsh jacket of correct texture. Just flagged towards the end of the class. 2. GEARY’S Watercroft Quick as a flash to Germanus

PB: MCCRACKNEN’S Carisco Myrtle Beach to Amawyn. Scottish Terrier. Pleasing Brindle bitch. Lovely for type. Nice head of good length and correct strength of foreface. Correct front assembly with broad hung chest. Short. Solid topline. Well-muscled up. Moved well with tail on top. 2. CORBETT’S Cedarhill Get Set for TRimere NAF. T/W JRT. Nice overall proportions. Pleasing head and expression. Good for bone and tidy feet. Level topline. In excellent hard condition and coat. Put down well. Moved correctly. 3. SPAFFORD’S Dassett upsy daisy.

National Terrier Champion Stakes.

This was a lovely class to judge with some quality champions three of which I had awarded a CC to previously. 1 MCNALLY’S Ch Conekesheved Too Shy JW. Bedlington. My CC and BOB earlier on in the day and subsequently BIS. Continued to impress me and I have outlined her qualities in her breed critique. Topped this quality class as a worthy winner. 2. GODDARD’S Ch Awbroosky Never Back Down. G/T. I have seen this young border ringside on a number of occasions and was pleased to have the opportunity to go over him. Quality dog who impresses for his overall balance. Pleasing head and expression, nice, neat ear. Correct front. Deep and narrow body. Correct tail. Good pelt and has a harsh jacket. Moved soundly 3. Ch Zippor Sapphireson at Letara. My CC winner at the club show last year. Whilst I wouldn’t want him

any bigger, I think he is a very handsome, typical and sound Sealyham male. In super jacket and condition.

National Terrier Veteran Stakes: A nice trio. I wish the first two well when it comes to the first final in this competition. 1.MAPSON’S Ch / Am Ch Abiqua Wild Jack of Hearts. SCWT. This dog impressed for his size and for his overall silhouette. Pleasing head of correct proportions. Correct from assembly. Lovely neck and shoulder. Correct topline. Excellent well muscled hind quarters. Moved around the ring like a two year old male. Nice colour and coat texture. Not over trimmed. BV. 2. NASH’S Ralph House of Nash. Norfolk Terrier. Done well under me on a number of occasions and was BV under me at the Club Show last week. Black and Tan. Nice size. Pleases in his overall shape. Broad skull, neat e ar, correct dark eye. Would prefer a fraction more underjaw to complete the picture. Level topline which he holds on the move and plenty behind the tail. Put down in super form. Moved well. 3. HANNINGTON’S Eng & Bel Dutch Int Ch Esp Ch Boudivella Osca. Glenn of Imaal. This was a quality Glen who was unlucky to meet the first two in form. Thoroughly deserved this place, in great condition and jacket.
