WEST MIDLAND TERRIER SOCIETY OPEN SHOW

24 TH NOVEMBER 2018.

I would like to thank the committee for allowing me the honour of judging this prestigious open show .The welcome on arrival and way committee looked after us all day is admirable. Thank you to both my ring stewards who made my job of judging very easy .The quality of exhibits was very pleasing with top terrier entry thank you exhibitors for allowing me the honour of judging your dogs today. There was only a few dogs with mouth faults but more with weak pasterns and poor feet .There were a few carrying too much weight on show today which was the deciding factor in some of my close decisions. My best of breed also reserve best in show was a dog I had judged as a puppy and gave top honours to that day and in my critique said he would do well ,yes he has done well winning his title at 14 months obtaining highest points for a junior in annual awards and 2nd Top STAFFORD for 2018, but not only has he done well be has matured into a fantastic dog which was on show today. Every judge would like a good dog or bitch to represent their breed and I was quietly confident he would do well later in the challenge which he certainty did. This dog is not even the finished article yet .Exciting times ahead for this young dog if he matures into the dog I think he will be he will be the total package .Reserve best of breed was a bitch I have never seen before, she walked into the ring and took my attention a cracking bitch who possesses great qualities won top honours against some lovely bitches .When they both stood there for best of breed I was really happy to see two cracking examples of our wonderful breed .My best puppy was a dog who has the potential to achieve top honours good luck with him .
