Driffield Agricultural Society

Wetherby Racecourse, 3rd October 2009.   Judge: Mr Geoff Corish.

"It was a great pleasure to judge one of my favourite terrier breeds. Dandies are always so friendly & full of character. For BOB I had two extremely nice dogs & it was hard to decide. In the end I was just bowled over by the gorgeous bitch & one we will hear much more of."

Shore's Ch. Swanwillow Savannah

Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis

Puppy Dog

1st: Jacka-Slater's Cassencarrie Robbie Burns

Mustard, promising young dog. Not in the best of coats. Nice in head & expression, good bone & feet. Could be a little sounder in front at present but the ground didn’t really help too much.

Junior Dog

1st: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad

Pepper of good size, liked his head, well shaped eye. Not in his best coat & now needs a new one. Didn’t move at all well on the ground. Would also prefer a better topline.

Yearling Dog

1st: Skitt & Jones's Vistca Vincent

Mustard, well balanced, sound moving. Very short of coat. OK in topline & excellent hindquarters.

2nd: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Brain's Avonview Bein Bhreac

Mustard, wouldn’t want him any larger. Good coat texture, quite a nice head & eye.

Limit Dog

1st: Denham's Scottsbairn Duke Of Ross

Pepper, nice size. Bit happy with his tail but I had to forgive this. Best head for me in the class. Not in best of coats but moves out well.

2nd: Carter's Cassencarrie James Blonde

Mustard, bit rangier in type to 1. Not quite head of 1 & wasn’t as settled on the move.

3rd: Smethurst's Dawsholm Dapper Davoc
Res: Kelly's Swanwillow Jackmanii
VHC: Corless 's Dengold Enterprise

Open Dog

1st: Deacon's Ch./Am Ch. Pennywise Burning Ambition for Cassencarrie

Mustard, a dog I have judged in a group earlier in the year. Very nice dog, not overdone anywhere. Just out moved the rest, in super coat & condition. CC.

2nd: Macbeth & Johnston's Am Ch./Can Ch. Gateway Spark of Glahms

Pepper, a lot to like, super head & expression, standing looks the part. He made heavy weather of moving & where the 1 scored here he didn’t. Would love to see him on firmer ground. RCC.

Minor Puppy Bitch

1st: Skitt's Dawsholm Cantily Ciara

A baby, moved OK when she decided to. In good coat, good front & feet, good topline, well presented.

Puppy Bitch

1st: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis

Mustard, very promising, very good outline. Tends to flatten her topline at times. Super head & expression, should have a good future. BP.

2nd: Lomas's Cloverwood Double Delight

Not as forward as 1 & not the head. Good textured coat, moved OK both in profile & coming & going.

Junior Bitch

1st: Tinsley's Cloverwood Lemon Drizzle

What a lovely bitch this is, so feminine, beautiful head & expression, so sound, good amount of neck, excellent coat & presentation, one for the upper house definitely, looked so good in the challenge. CC & BOB.

Yearling Bitch

1st: Brookes's Berdinbrook Pandora

Pepper, nice size, good topline, good coat texture. Head OK but ears could be better.

2nd: Joy's Hendell Eliza Bennet with Morailsa

Sadly this bitch wasn’t enjoying her day & refused to stand or really move for her stand in handler. Sure she will have better days.

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Smith's Somercloud Starprize at Glendandy

Mustard & for me the best head & expression in this class. Shown in full coat which didn’t really help her outline. Good amount of neck, good topline. Would have liked a bit more hind angulation.

2nd: Heywood's Schalulleke Clara Jones

Good moving bitch, not quite head of 1, good neck & shoulder. Little flat in topline. Very short of coat at present but that will grow. OK for size & in profile moves out well.

3rd: Brookes's Dengold Cutty Sark of Berdinbrook
Res: Coleman's Schalulleke Izzydibble

Limit Bitch

1st: Deacon's Cassencarrie Red Ribbon

Mustard & for me best outline & head in this class, moves out well. Wouldn’t want her any taller or heavier as she is top size now but no taking away her other qualities. Well presented.

2nd: Morris's Hendell Tassel at Pennywave

Mustard, very feminine bitch. Not quite as good in neck & shoulder as 1. Moved OK in profile but could be a little sounder in front.

3rd: Corless's Hendell Cassiopeia at Dengold

Open Bitch

1st: Shore's Ch. Swanwillow Savannah

Mustard I have often seen & admired. Nice size, well bodied, good topline & tailset, lovely head & expression. Not in her best coat. RCC.
