West Midland Terrier Society –
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.
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
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
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.
