My thanks to West Midland for inviting me to judge at this prestigious show. I can say that the day was well run and the standard of exhibits pleasing. My special thanks go to my stewards, Jo and Graham who kept things running smoothly. After attending this show for many years, I feel that I should comment that this was a very good venue. It was nice to see exhibitors having space to set up and also have slightly larger rings to show your dogs properly. Hope we are coming back.

Australian Terriers.

Puppy. 1. Ward's Wilfnbell Wonderwoman. 10 month old bitch. Stood proportionate with a level topline. Keen expression with strong head, pricked ears, dark eye and scissor bite. Ruff well pronounced with silky topknot. Laid back shoulders, deep chest and sufficient angulation. Moved straight with lightness of feet and tail set on. BP.


Post Graduate. 1. Ward's Wyeafon Hawk Eye. 2 1/2 year old dog. Proportionate dog with level topline. Scissor bite and dark eye. Slightly larger build. Ruff and silky topknot. Not very confident but moved with drive..


Open. 2. 1. McCourt's Silhill Angel Eyes. 2 year old bitch. Stood proportionately built with level topline, tail set on and keen expression. Correct head planes, pricked ears, dark eye and scissor bite. Well ruffed and with a silky topknot. Laid back shoulders, deep chest and angulation. Moved straight with lightness of foot which produced good drive. BOB.  2. Cawdell-Owen and McCourt's Silhill Super Trouper. Litter brother to 1. The same comments can be said about this exhibit  well. It came down to movement, his sister had more drive and better tail carriage. Nice dog though. RBOB.
