Birmingham Championship Show
5 September 2015
I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to judge this show, also
for the very handy hospitality
provided, a 200 yard walk from hotel to venue is a real treat!. But a really
big thank you to my exhibitors for a very respectable entry of 61 dogs. The
only down side - I would have
preferred a larger ring.
on the whole were good, some with smaller teeth than one would prefer but
correct dentition. A few coats were in between but most were of good
condition, only a few dirty ones. I found a few lacking forechest which
spoils the front assembly and movement. There is an obvious variation in size
in our breed, medium and well balanced is what we should aim for.
Temperaments were on the whole good. Although the bitches outdid the males
numerically and quality wise, my DCC & BOB was outstandingly the best
exhibit of the day. To see him go Terrier group one under judge Zena
Thorn-Andrews was really thrilling and made me feel so proud to be part of
this too rare event, last time being 2002.
