National Terrier critique


MPD (1) 1 Whitehouse & McBrine’s Knockcarrig Anamcha, pleasing puppy with lots of character, good stop & well set eye, head & body developing along correct lines, moved well with drive.

PD (1)s Romainville Jazzman, good looking brindle of good size, shape & proportions for age, head developing well, pleasing eye, good back skull, ribcage & muscletone, moved out freely with drive. All together won him BP.

JD (2) 1 White’s Abberann Phelan, this lad is still a puppy, well developed head with correct head planes, good forehand ribs & substance but not over done, would like a little more length in body, moved out strongly; 2 Hardy’s Amhard High Flyer, liked this lad’s body proportions, balanced head & nice well set eye & ears, good angles front & rear, moved well, just needs to mature.

PGD (3,1a) 1 Withers’ Pajantick Star Trooper, wheaten with good overall balance, well off for stop, good eye, strong neck, slight lift to firm loin, strong mover with drive which won him the class; 2 Squires’ Bendikes Edward Bear, brindle with correct head & eye, good ribcage, level topline, moved OK, lacked drive.

LD (1) 1 George & Sulivan’s Romainville Billy Whizz, this good looking wheaten was a puppy last time I judged him, now fulfilling his promise, pleasing head planes of correct proportions, good depth to brisket & width of chest, nicely angulated, moved efficiently showing off his attributes, pushed hard for top honours.

OD (5) Super class. 1 White’s Ir Ch Cib Ch Abberann Karl, masculine all through with plenty of substance but not over done in any way, powerful head, well set eye, strong neck & front assembly, good spring of rib, strong loin, in firm condition, well muscled rear, coat of correct texture, moved like a train, well handled. CC; 2 Rogers’ Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty, another all male, not in his best coat today so nothing hidden, masculine, balanced head, nice expressive eye, good lay of shoulder & depth to brisket, firm loin, moved freely front, rear & side. RCC; 3 Hadley’s Donvaleset Rebus.

PB (4,1) 1 George & Sulivan’s Romainville Fade To Grey, liked her overall size & shape, good height to length ratio, feminine head, pleasing expression from well set eye, positive in movement, covered the ground with ease; 2 White’s Abberann Dervla, balanced head pattern with pleasant eye, good lay of shoulder, clean on withers, slightly shorter in body length than winner, moved OK; 3 Harvey’s Romainville Ladys First.

PGB (4,2) 1 Hannington’s Romainville Uptown Girl, loved her balanced shape & size, feminine head, correct stop & eye set, pleasing expression, good depth & width of chest, firm loin, moved soundly all ways; 2 Ashcroft’s Romainville Moira, attractive head, good shoulders, brisket & ribcage, tidy feet, moved well.

LB (3,1) 1 George & Sulivan’s Romainville Jean Genie, another attractive pleasing bitch from this well known kennel, always shown in immaculate condition, feminine head, clean stop, dark eye, alert expression, good forequarters & rear angles, strong neck onto good shoulders, depth of chest, firm topline, just needs to settle in movement. RCC; 2 Rogers’ Jeonty Meme Fern, nice type of head with pleasing eye, good neck, forechest well ribbed up, moved OK.

OB (4,1) Good class.1 Harley’s Ch Donvaleset Brier, always liked this bitch & she did not let me down today, super type of bitch, balanced body shape, correct ratios showing strength & substance to do the work required but still feminine. Head correct proportions, well set eye & ear cartridge, enough foreface & back skull, excellent forehand, nicely laid shoulders & depth & width of chest, slight rise to firm loin, in great condition & muscle tone, moved out freely & strongly, covered the ground with ease, a pleasure to award her the CC; 2 White’s Ch/Ir Ch Abberann Ennya, slightly shorter in length than winner but still balanced, feminine head, good width, nicely laid shoulders, clean on withers with good depth to brisket, firm strong loin, moved well particular front & side; 3 Withers’ Romainville Aoife at Pajantick.
