CDDTC Summer Open Show

Moffat Town Hall, 4th August 2013. Judge: Mr Mark Ord.

Thank you to the dedicated committee of this club for inviting me to judge. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the lovely atmosphere ring side. I was pleased with my main winners and today thought the quality was more evident in the bitches. Coats were varied but you have to accept this in terrier breeds and judge the whole dog on the day and how it performs before you.

Minor Puppy Dog 1st: Doyle's Dentgate Jackfrost at Ilexquercus

2nd: Watson's Dentgate Noel

Junior Dog 1st: Kerrush's Inzievar Silver And Gold
Pepper, masculine head with correct topknot, good eye and ear placement, good dentition, strong neck into good shoulder , chest well down, good ribbing and loin, correct body shape, tail of right length and carried correctly, excellent quarters which he certainly uses on move. In good coat and first class condition, presented and handled to perfection. Stood presents a first class dog but on the move he is outstanding.

Pepper in good coat of correct texture, a little lethargic on the move but scored over 2 for body shape, typical head with good ear placement and eyes wide apart and round.
2nd: Knapper's Maganbar Applejack
Mustard with crisp coat, good head and chest well down, moved out well both ways, correct tail shape and set.

Limit Dog 1st: Riach's Puddockswell Moon Dance
Pepper, 2nd had the better coat today but loved the body shape and outline of 1, good headed dog with strong neck leading to a good front, body strong and flexible, correct rib and arch over loin, good quarters and moved well.
2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Moon Shadow at Dryfevalley
Pepper dog older than 1 and not as sprightly on the move today, lovely crisp coat and silky topknot, typical head, eye and ear placement.

Mustard, mature but still has lovely body outline, skull nice and broad between ears, good round eye and well shaped ear which is correctly set. Moved true fore and aft, lovely body shape, good rib and strong quarters, well developed thigh, tail of good length and well carried.

This lad got great applause ringside, almost 15 years old, a credit to his owner, good head, coat not at its best but in good condition.

Pepper of quality to win this good class of youngsters. Good shaped head and profuse silky hair, body hair crisp and good undercoat, strong neck into good shoulder and upper arm, strong deep chest and good rib, well developed thigh and good tail, very promising youngster.
2nd: Kurg's Etsill Skara Brae

3rd: Bell's Lannia Harvest Charm

Junior Bitch 1st: Denham's Dentgate Royal Jubilee

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Jarvis's Inzievar Summer Gold at Mosterlada
Litter sister to my Best Dog, a quality bitch with most lovely expression, good strong jaw and good skull, not in best jacket today but was evidence of correct texture. Moved very true fore and aft, excellent body and strong quarters.
