 West Midland Terrier Society – November 2019

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the West Midland Terrier Society for inviting me to judge this show today; I was very impressed with the friendly, relaxed atmosphere and very well organised reception that met me on my arrival. Many thanks also go to the Stewards who were very helpful and obliging and last, but not least, thank you to the Exhibitors for their wonderful entries; it was a great pleasure to go over some lovely dogs.

Norfolk Terriers

Puppy (2,1)

1st Jenkins’ Kinsridge Tip Toes, this lovely, confident, young girl came into the ring and owned it. Moved with good extension front and rear, moving with such balance. Light in movement but positive, making a lovely shape going around the ring. Loved her broad skull, ear set, strength in foreface, lovely shaped eye giving a nice expression, good mouth. Correct neck and shoulders, short backed, correct length of leg which shows in her movement, strong hind quarters, good thick tail which was nicely carried. I was very pleased to see she was awarded RBPIS

Junior (3,1)

1st Cherry’s Shanandi Little Red Dress, a lovely balanced young bitch with a good strong head, nice oval eye, good mouth. Lovely neck and shoulders, short backed, good amount of bone, good feet, well set on thick tail. Presentation good.

2nd Lloyd’s Orison Nogin The Nod, this kennel always has such great harsh coats, although the finish could be better at times (but we are all constantly on a learning curve with regard to grooming). This girl had a lovely dark eye, good strong teeth with correct bite. I would have preferred to have seen a slightly smaller ear and a little more spring of rib, however, she did move with good extension once she had settled.

Post Graduate (3,1)

1st Jenkins’ Kinsridge Tip Off, loved this young dog puppy, litter brother to the BOB and RBPIS. Good proportions in head for age. Good mouth, lovely expression with oval shaped eye and correct ear size. Lovely strong neck and correct shoulder placement. Short backed, lovely feet and bone, thick tail and carried correctly. Good angulation on strong hind quarters. Showed well and presented a nice shape as he went around the ring. Difficult decision for BOB but thought his sister was more of a piece.

2nd Lloyd’s Orison Midnight Stroll, not as compact as (1) but had a nice length of neck and good shoulder, good mouth, dark eye but would have liked a more oval shape. Lovely tail and set well. Nice harsh coat. Moved well around the ring with nice extension.

Open Bitch (3,2)

1st Lloyd’s Orison Calm Attitude, I have always admired this bitch, she has some nice qualities. Good width of skull, dark eye but would have preferred a smaller oval eye. Very good mouth, with big teeth, strong muzzle, nice feet, lovely length of neck going into a nice shoulder placement, good length of upper arm which shows when she goes around the ring. Beautiful black harsh coat. She looked nice in profile but wasn't settled in the final line up.
