Glen of Imaal Terriers WKC

PD (1)

1 Hardy’s Amard High Flyer, very smart & good headed boy, showing the whites of eyes a touch. Neat ears carried well, wrap round front but a little too elbowy. Super body & quarters, lovely coat coming, moving well in rear & profile, great temperament. BP.

JD & PGD (0).

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Billy Whizz, stole my heart with his wicked terrier expression. Great head, correct muzzle, strength & length, neat ears, OK in front, well up on his feet, great body. Good coat texture just about to blow. Moved well in all directions keeping correct outline & tail carriage. CC & BOB;

2 Quinn’s Kirikee Ronan O’Gara, smart boy, lovely outline in profile movement, good harsh coat, pleasing head. Eyes a touch light & note quite the up & down soundness of 1 but has a decent stride in profile. Well set & carried tail;

3 Welch’s Romainville Brannigan at Brockland.

OD (4)

Good class of lovely terriers.

1 Welch’s Ch/Int Ch Brockland Brayhead Lad, good for size & type, super outline, pleasing head & eye placement, sturdy sound body, good legs, wrap round front & tail carried out at 45 degrees. Moved a touch close going away but certainly well muscled & such a strong easy stride in profile. RCC;

2 Ashcroft’s Romainville Typhoon, a bit too straight legged & a touch too tall I imagine. Loved his head & earset, good expressive eyes, excellent body & rear, well set tail. A bit out of coat but what was there was hard. Good sound dog all round;

3 Hadley’s Donvaleset Rebus.

PB (1)

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Rock On Ruby, lovely head, eyes & expression, good folding ears, enough neck, OK in front & lovely thick feet. Big enough for a bitch & not in proper coat. Well set tail, good strong bone. Slight dip in back before the rise over loin but this should improve with time.

PGB (4)

First two both dropping their tails.

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Jean Genie, lovely to go over, super head & muzzle, sound front & forechest prominent, excellent body, ribbing, topline & quarters. Precise mover, just spoilt by a drooping tail. RCC;

2 Sharpe & Betts’ Romanville Brigid of Pines, good outline & shape. Not quite the movement of 1 up & down & also lost her tail. Sound legs & feet, pleasing head & strength of muzzle. Coat a little ‘bitty’;

3 Ashcroft’s Romainville Moira.

LB (1) A.

OB (1)

1 Withers’ Romainville Aoife at Pajantick, lovely bitch, sadly out of coat, I saw a touch of hard red hairs there & there. Sound, excellent mover, typy, feminine yet strong & correct for size.
Her type, movement & quality won over a poor coat. CC.
