The entry for Scottish Kennel Club of 9 Glen of Imaal Terriers isn’t very good but it is hardly a surprise. The judge, Jeff Luscott, only officiated in the ring a mere 13 months ago so everybody is well aware of his recent thoughts. His two tickets winners of that day, Homer & Ceilidh, have nothing to prove under him so SKC is a show where Nick and Karen can save the entry fee.
Birmingham (with 18) and SKC (9) are some of the lowest entries in years. Birmingham is a Thursday & SKC a fast re-judger so they are valid reasons for such poor turnouts but what about the next shows? It is looking as if the attracting of exhibitors this year is going to be a serious problem.
