West Midlands Terrier Society-Open Show 7th December 2013
Glen of Imaal Terriers
Thank you to WMTS for the invitation to judge and the exhibitors for your support. A well run show and a very pleasant day out.
Junior: 1st Ellerton Dusky Beauty. Brindle full of character. Good bone and structure. Sound in movement, should make up well as she matures. 2nd Jeonty MeMe Fern. Wheaten. Nice head and expression with sound confirmation. Moves well. Shows great promise for the future.
Post Graduate: 1st Pajantick Star Trooper. Wheaten. Powerfully built young dog. Good head and front. Slightly light on hindquarters but still moves well and should grow into a well-balanced sound dog. Reserve BOB. 2nd Jeonty Red Clover. Wheaten. A typical glen of right type. Now a veteran but still full of character. She lost out to youth today but moved well and was a pleasure to handle.
Open: 1st Bregorrey Wannabe Victory by Jeonty. Brindle. Solid well put together male. Moved with drive and purpose. Good bone and shown very fit. BOB. 2nd Ch Jeonty Maybe Daysee. Wheaten. Head sound bite and good expression. Well-presented and moved out well. A very close decision.
