Our Judge Phil Roberts













A Very Happy Joan Percy With Her New Champion!



At 11:30 am a minutes silence was held in memory of our dear friend Catherine Butterfield







I would like to thank Mr Freeman and his staff, firstly for offering me this judging appointment, and secondly, for their kindness & first class hospitality on a beautiful sunny day. I should also like to extend thanks to my stewards for their help & the very efficient and unobtrusive way in which they carried out their duties. Finally, l would also like to thank those who entered for making a very good entry of 63 dogs on a Thursday.


Now to the dogs. Heads were generally in proportion to bodies and of the correct length (occiput to nose). and width (side to side across occiput). Eyes were predominantly dark but there were a few light eyes which spoils the overall impression. It was pleasing to see many with big teeth & the correct scissor bite, but there were a number with small cramped teeth, particularly in the lower jaw, and this ought to be taken into account, if and when, breeding from them. Heads and neck length were generally well in proportion.


Shoulders were generally good as were front legs. However many were only covered with fine, as opposed to coarse, hair. Top lines were good with tails well set on. Hind quarter angulation was good. Feet were a cause for some concern, being thin and “ferrety” in many cases.


I really found it very difficult to make constructive comments about movement as most exhibits appeared to be “pinning in” at the front. I am sure this was an optical illusion as shoulders & front legs were generally good. I think it was mainly caused by longish wet grass. It was only in the latter bitch classes where movement seemed better when the grass had dried.



MPD 2, (1)

1.      Peers Tweedisle Stargazer.

            A wheaten who found everything just a little too much for him. New coat just coming in. A nice head, dark eye & alert expression. Good front and sound quarters. Would have liked a little more leg, but he has time to grow on.


PD 4

1.   Felters & Rumens Landbuck Colour Code.

            Cream with a good head and length of neck. Well made shoulders, level top line and good sound hind quarters which gave plenty of drive. A very nice puppy. Well deserved win whose progress I shall watch with interest as he should do well in the breed.

2.   Percy’s Landbuck Colour Scheme.

            Litter brother to 1. A very alert red, who may do better on another day. Beautifully presented and clearly well trained. A size bigger than his brother but shorter in back. Excellent head, length of neck and level top line. Good tail set. Another good mover.

3.   Marshall’s Strathgarten Crackerjack.


JD 3 (1)

1.      Templeton’s Time To Entertain.

      A silver brindle who immediately caught my eye. Well proportioned and correct size. Excellent head with good stop. Well bodied & good tail set. I liked this dog very much and am sure he will go on to gain his title. RDCC.

2.      Inett & Harrison’s Noncom Inett Tu Winnit with Carrdine. Light red with dark points. A size bigger than winner but nicely proportioned. Pleasing head. Coat has seen better days.


YD 1

1.      Purvis’s Licensed to Thrill. Wheaten with dark points. Alert. Well up to size. Would have preferred finer shoulders. Grumbled a little. Stood alone.



1.      Waugh’s Tribanon Warlord. Upstanding silver brindle. Very good head with pronounced stop. Would have liked a little more length in back, but well proportioned otherwise. Good turn of stifle. Moved well.

2.      Dolan & Inett’s Glenrood Ice Man. Light red very soundly built. Slightly bigger than 1. Lost out by head comparison with winner. Well bodied and very alert.

3.      Smith’s Rocasovale Razzle Dazzle

OD 9 (5)

1.      Percy’s Winetta Jimmy Mac. Well presented silver brindle with hardly a hair out of place. Excellent general appearance. Good strong head, one of the best on the day. Well placed ears. Front & shoulders very good which contributed to his excellent movement. A showman who didn’t waiver when it mattered. DCC

2.      Grainger’s Devil in Disguise.  A red similar to 1 with a good head & neck. Level top line &    excellent tail set. Moved well.

3.      Firth, Jones & Firth’s Cairngold Jackpot.



1.      Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Button It. Light red in good coat excelled in head. Good tail set and angulation. Moved quite well considering the difficult ground.

1.      Felters & Rumens Landbuck Jazz Hands. A lovely cream with dark points in good coat. Beautifully proportioned. The best of heads. Nice length of neck. Good top line and tail set. Good angulation at rear helping movement with drive. Another puppy whose progress I shall follow with interest. BP.

2.      Burgin’s Noncom Miss Hat He Chewed. A nicely proportioned light grey. Similar to 1 in every respect. However, I preferred the general appearance of the winner.

And After!



Even Elaine is impressed!

A time for dreams!

We can dream - can’t we!

Babies too can dream!

Well what do YOU think!

Two dogs and a ciggie!

They DID wear them this length!

A bad tailset!

It’s not a storm proof lighter then!

I’m happy feeding Royal Canin!


Mustn’t miss the action!
