National Terrier critique

Glen Of Imaal Terriers

Thank you to National Terrier for the invitation to judge these breeds, it was a well run show with good quality in the breeds I judged. Thanks to the exhibitors for the entries & the sporting atmosphere at ringside, I enjoyed the day among the dogs & their supporters

MPD (2,1a)

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Becks Blue, good development so far on this impressive youngster, he has the skull to muzzle ratios, neck, body & chest coming through, he’s good at the rear with the muscle & true action front to develop, but goes well in side action.

JD (2)

1 Hannington’s Boudivella Oscar, interesting class with the first stronger & more substance at this stage, he’s longer, but has the power in head & skull, strong jaw & better front with a good chest & strong rear, moved to win;

2 Rogers’ Kingcottage Boogie On Basil, slightly smaller at present but of good type, head balanced to length, good topline & tailset, he moved well on side & rear action & carries a good coat, more to come as he develops.

PGD (1)

1 Alstead’s Golden Spurs, smart boy with the shape & balance, he has the head width developing, has the chest & body, though a little longer in loin, strong quarters & coat colour, he moves well on side & rear action, front to improve.

LD (4)

1 Withers’ Pajantick Star Trooper, impressive, strong, substantial wheaten boy with the typical head, skull, jaw & neck, he has a good front topline & shape with the tail & overall size, he’s well built through chest & loin with strongly muscled rearquarters, good on the move, he took it all before him today, great condition for CC & BOB;

2 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Jazz Man, liked this lad with the classic head, ear & eye, good neck, holds himself well in balance, would prefer a slightly better shoulder set, but he has the topline & rearend, just more to come in body & muscletone to challenge 1 in this excellent class;

3 Davis’ Donvaleset Rafferty at Viahninns.

OD (2)

1 Ashcroft’s Ch Romainville Typhoon, quality boy with the strength in head, skull & muzzle, he has the bone, body & substance, nice quarters & muscled rearend, not quite the topline today from withers, but he’s good on the move pushing all the way in the challenge taking the RCC today;

2 Sage’s Romainville Fast N’Furious at Wickholm, another lovely dog from this kennel with a classic shape, good typical head & neck, slightly longer in back than 1 with the croup & strong rearend, he moved well at his own pace.

MPB (0).

PB (2)

1 Rogers’ Jeonty Minnie Meme, very promising & stunning puppy with the balance & overall shape, she has the attitude, is good through head & muzzle, she has the power in jaw with strong teeth, I liked the front topline & rear muscle strength, she’s good on the move from all angles & took this class & BP today;

2 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Razzamatazz, loved the outline & overall type of this girl, she’s good in profile action, but not quite the front development yet of 1, she’s growing well at this stage with the chest & body to firm up, her time will come.

JB (0).

PGB (1)

1 Studd’s Wickholm Gone In Sixty Secs, smart girl with good proportions in head & body, she has the front & rise in topline to the tailset, a strongly muscled rearend & she’s good on the move with an easy action, accurate & true.

LB (2)

1 Hannington’s Romainville Uptown Girl, good type on this strong girl, she has the balance but a little longer in loin, she’s well filled in body with good proportions in head & muzzle, she carries the coat of harsh texture & won this class with the better movement today;

2 Ashcroft’s Romainville Moira, lovely wheaten girl of a better outline shape than 1, she has the power in skull & jaw, neck & tailset, carrying a little too much body weight today but OK on the move, with more to come in front action.

OB (3)

1 George & Sullivan’s Romainville Rock On Ruby, three quality girls in this class, the first a big strong powerful girl with the type in head, skull & muzzle, strong jaw & teeth of good size, she has the bone, strong front, depth of chest, rib, loin & tailset, she has good propulsion on the move, covers the ground with her strong drive at the rear, won the class & the close decision for the CC;

2 Seall’s Ch Bregorrey Madam Defiance, lovely, impressive for type & balance, good overall for size & performance, attracts in head, neck, topline & body, she’s good through although with finer bone, she has a strong rear & the easy action on the move, well deserved RCC, a worthy champion;

3 Sage’s Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm.
