My thanks to the Club for an enjoyable day; and to my stewards Kevin and Julie who ensured that all flowed smoothly and that my only task was to judge the dogs. Thanks also to the rest of the committee and helpers who ensured a well run show. I was well pleased with the entry; real quality beyond the available cards in many classes. I had no bad mouths (a few lost and broken teeth, not a major problem to me); but quite a few with small teeth in a technically perfect bite. All males were entire. I had expected (from recent ringside observation) to find front movement, in particular, a problem; so was pleasantly surprised in the entry on the day in this respect. However, too many of the dogs did not have the construction and fitness to appear able to move efficiently over rough ground all day. Coats were variable, most being well prepared and tidy; pelts, on the whole, were good, but feet were often weak with thin pads.

Minor Puppy - Dog

Entries: 3 Absentees: 0

1st - Cedarhill Melt In The Mouth (Mrs C Dean) 6 mo grizzle dog, nicely balanced outline, nicely angulated both ends. Strong head and big teeth. Moving a little close in front and behind but getting over his ground well. Good coat and pelt.

2nd - Stowthorney Wicker Man (Mr R Brewster & Ms J Green) 7 mo .More upright profile and head not as strong as 1st , but technically better mover. Similar in coat.

3rd - Kadaredhills Breaking Free (Mrs J Potts) 7mo, and first time out. Potentially a better dog, but totally unschooled, to the extent that he was terrified on the table. Head needs to come on but moved out well when he settled.

Correctly made strong head with good expression. Moved true both ways and covered his ground well. Nice tight coat good pelt. Best Puppy in Show, a good prospect for the future.

2nd - Dallas Dhu (Mrs C Palmer) 10 mo. Handy size, good outline, harsh coat, not as strong in head, rather excitable but moved OK when settled

3rd - Northborders Marlon Brando (Miss J North) a bigger, narrower, dog, excellently prepared, looked good standing, and though slightly upright in front covered his ground well, tail longer than perfect, hope he’s finished his growing

Veteran - Dog

Entries: 8 Absentees: 2

1st - CH/AM/CAN CH Cedarhill Beyond the Stars JW (Mrs C Dean) Neatly built, well preserved, wouldn’t have been out of place in Open class. Competent mover, quality short, tight coat and good pelt. Well balanced outline, good head, neck and shoulder, and rear assembly,

Minor Puppy - Bitch

Entries: 7 Absentees: 2

1st - Karison Kalluna (Miss K Johnson) nicely balanced , handy sized bitch, nice front and angulations. Strong head and good mouth. Coat quite thick and harsh, good pelt. Moving well across her ground, going slightly close fore and aft but only 7 months so will hopefully improve,

2nd - Otterpaws Lyin Eyes (Miss A M Dixon) similar type, slightly larger overall, head not as impressive, again, weaving a bit in front.

3rd - Karison Koprosma At Staynorwood (Mr G & Mrs C Richardson) smaller, slightly cobby bitch; head, perhaps more ‘feminine’, but less appealing to me, standing high at the rear, neat feet, tight coat, good pelt. Litter sister to 1, and very similar in movement.

Res - Smalesmouth Cadence (Mrs J Roberts)

VHC - Ravenside Marsha At Jordith (Mrs L.M.I & Mr A.M. Jordan-Smith)

Puppy - Bitch

Entries: 6 Absentees: 0

3rd - Mansergh Elevenplus (Miss A Roslin Williams) Excellent coat and pelt. A little short of substance , but maturity should correct this, hopefully also the over exuberant front movement. Well angulated, ribbed well back, covered her ground well. Will be interested to follow her development.

What a class! Pulled 6 for further attention, but could easily have placed more than that.

1st - Remony Frosted Ivy JW ShCM (Mrs A E Gregory) a well upstanding bitch, beautiful movement, front, back and across, well balanced with an excellent topline, with a bit more head she might be perfect. Nice tail, well set; cracking coat , good pelt, shoulder angulation totally correct, nice tight feet , good ear. RBCC

Entries: 11 Absentees: 4

1st - CH Dowgri Demelza ShCM (Mr W & Mrs T J Baird) Apart from a shortage of coat, had just about everything going for her. Strong head and muzzle, nice length of body, well ribbed back, correct shoulder placement and angulation, rear assembly equally good. Coat of good quality, but will be better in a few weeks. Moved true both ends, and covered her ground excellently. Just got decision for BCC despite lack of coat, on her overall excellence in balance, head and movement.

Entries: 7 Absentees: 2

5 quality bitches, showing just about the full range of type, all sound as a pound.

1st - Hollowmoor Casilva (Mrs A D Williams)10 yr old,. Up to size, but sound all through. Good , balanced outline, angulations correct. Head strong, keen eye and expression. Shown in a good quality, well prepared coat; has a good pelt. Sound and driving on the move.

2nd – Diamond Skys (Mrs N Anderson & Mrs A Howard) Opposite end of the size range, 13 + yrs old and still fit and sound. Only fault noted was a significant shortage of teeth (enough left to verify perfect jaw & bite) – a long, well lived life! Angulations perfect, moved true and covered her ground. Fit and agile.

3rd - Earthdog Kidnap (Mr D Pearson) Moving smoothly and accurately, perhaps a tad upright in shoulder, good coat, nice tail, looked good standing.

Res - Beaconpike In A Storm (Mr S & Mrs K Golding)

Special Dog or Bitch Holding a Working Certificate

Entries: 2 Absentees: 0

1st - CIB CH FR/IT/CRO/SLO/RSM Stonechester Apostraphe Von Jrasamuyr MFH (Miss C Khatchikian) long cast bitch, deepish and narrow in rib. Moved OK, but without enthusiasm, better behind than in front. A slightly smaller outline, and relatively more bone would improve the picture; head could be stronger. Decent coat.

2nd - CIB CH FR/IT/CRO/SLO Stonechester Question Von Jrasamuyr MFH (Miss C Khatchikian) Very similar type (litter mates) so most of above applies. Moved with a bit more animation, but less accuracy.

  Yorkshire Lancashire & Cheshire Border Terrier Club Open Show 
Sunday 4th February 2018 

 I would like to thank the club for the invitation to judge and the hospitality I received. Thanks also to my steward Mr Ian Hopper for his great assistance. Finally thank you to the exhibitors for giving me the opportunity to go over their dogs. I really enjoyed my day. I was impressed with the quality of the majority of dogs present and although some were top size all placed dogs were easily spanned and had correct bite.. I felt overall movement was good, coats were variable some full and some lacking however in the run up to Crufts this is to be expected. The majority had good pelts which was pleasing. Mouths were generally good most with large teeth but I was disappointed to see many with dirty teeth. 

 MPD 6 (1A)

 1st Duxbury's Ridgebow Two Hoots 8mth grizzle/tan dog in fit condition moved well both ways with drive from behind. Presented with a quality coat harsh and dense with excellent pelt.
