Best Puppy Henry's Tymeirz Benibouy

Puppy Dog 1st: Henry's Tymeirz Benibouy
Shown & presented to perfection in correct double coat of good texture but still has that desirable working terrier look about him, sound free mover & no exaggerations, well proportioned head & body, flowing lines both stood & moving, has correct feet & thick pads, good body for his young age, correct tail set, length & carriage. Delighted he went on to win terrier puppy group, well done.
2nd: Nathan & Cox-Purcell's Puddockswell Screaming J Hawkins
Desirable skull & strength to jaw with good top knot, correct double coat but not as well presented as 1, good body shape but would benefit loosing a little weight, correct feet, tail well set however would like more tapering from base to tip, moved well.

Junior Dog 1st: Drake & Kurg's Etsill Mykillkvi with Tollcross
Pleasing head shape & strength in his neck well set into front, correct ribbing but would like slightly shorter loin, well set hocks & good tail set, moved well in class but in challenge showing resistance, double coat but not at its best today.
2nd: Cruden & Kaye's Dryfevalley Midnight Blue
Most lovely head & eye with correct ear set & size, could not match 1 in front movement & tending to stand sloppy in front, well presented double coat, correct rib & loin proportions, tail well set but slightly long, good feet.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Miller & Cox-Purcell's MyDan'd Thackery Binx of Puddockswell
Nothing exaggerated, well domed head with good eye & expression, well set ears of correct size & set, well bodied & has correct shaped feet, coat ok, on move was better in front than from his rear.

Limit Dog 1st: Karlsen's Dariant Gladiolus at Karezig
Appealing on first impression when stood but took a while to settle on move, once he got going he was fluent & sound, loved his head, excellent strength of jaw & good dentition, firm neck fitting well into his shoulder with good upper arm, in excellent body shape, coat presented to perfection, excellent feet & desirable tail, with a little more confidence in himself should be hard to beat. Delighted to award him his first CC.

Open Dog 1st: Butcher's Ch. Mishahda Mischief Managed
Has an excellent head with correct eye & ear, correct bite & dentition, excellent neck & front proportions, in good body but prefer a more gradual rise, coat presented to perfection & not over done, excellent texture of top coat, in hard muscular condition, drives well in rear, correct tail, masculine but would not like any bigger.
2nd: Deacon & Hill's Cassencarrie Of Course
Slightly smaller dog presented to perfection, lovely double coat, very desirable head & expression, on first impression was my class winner but was not happy in his environment today & giving his handler a hard time, has a lovely balance about him from head to tail, correct tail.
3rd: Denham's Dentgate Hucklberries

Puppy Bitch 1st: Butcher's Bonnybeck I'm No Muggle
Only 6 month but a lot more mature than 2nd, showed herself to great advantage & was obviously well schooled & enjoying herself, correct strong head & in proportion to her body size, liked her front & in time will strengthen in rear, excellent rib & loin, in good coat with correct tail set & carriage.
2nd: Deegan's Deegandan Lady Grey
Also just 6 months but very raw compared to 1 & completely in her undercoat with no evidence of harsh top coat yet, she is ultra feminine in head & body, lovely shoulder & sound quarters with correct tail set, took time to settle but when she did had desirable movement fore & aft, with confidence & maturity will be a quality b.

Junior Bitch 1st: Garven's Cloverwood Magic Minnie
Lovely profile on stack & did not disappoint on her movement both front & back were excellent, lovely expressive eyes, strength of jaw & good ear size, presented in good muscular condition & has excellent double coat.
2nd: Kurg & Milton's Etsill Hannabreck
Loved the head on this b, strength of neck & good front, prefer length of body of 1 & not in her best coat today, has strength in her rear & well set tail.
3rd: Denham's Dentgate Platinum Moon

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Deegan's Calmarlin Lady Elisabeth of Deegandan
Sound mover of very old fashioned workmanlike type, good proportions of skull & jaw, pleasing in front & in excellent body shape & length, slight rise & not exaggerated, not a heavy coat but suffice, moving free & easy when settled, well set tail of good length & tapering. Good feet.
2nd: Miller's Dryfevalley Velma Dinkley
Happy showy girl in better coat than 1 but could not match in front which was a little loose coming towards, sound in rear, excellent body with good ribbing, well set tail.

Limit Bitch 1st: Buckley's Jollygaze Quizzical for Lovelettie
Ultra feminine & handled to perfection, very showy but was also sound in her gait, loved the size & balance, excellent head & eye, good ear set & shape, not a heavy coat but correct texture & well presented, strongly considered just needs more maturity but is highly desirable.
2nd: Weaving's Dentgate Silk Threads
Very sound well constructed but on the large size & looked quite doggy, everything was in proportion & if smaller would be highly desirable for her soundness which was very evident when moving, double coat & in hard muscular condition.

Open Bitch 1st: Allenby's Wilmit Mildred Potter for Diddimont
I judged this b over 3 years ago & she has now matured into a quality b, everything is in proportion & when she moves top honour became very evident, she is so typical of a working terrier yet presented to perfection for the show ring, correct head proportions, excellent neck which flows into correct shoulders, her body is highly desirable, has strength in her rear with correct tapering well set tail, good feet & pads, delighted to award her a most worthy CC & her crown today, outmoving her kennel mate in the challenge to take BOB.
2nd: Allenby's Ch. Diddimont Luna Wuffgood
Very similar to 1 who is her mother & splitting hairs, just thought 1 moved with more purpose & was in slightly better condition today, it is so pleasing to see a bitch reproducing her own qualities in the next generation and the type was most evident to the eye. Otherwise notes as 1st.
3rd: Sleight's Ch. Danchester's Can You Hear Me Roar for Bonnybeck
Res: Rolland's Dandiroyal Cream Tea
VHC: McCain's Blue Violet Flower at Bankwillow

Special Beginners Bitch 1st: Garven's Cloverwood Magic Minnie
2nd: Heffernan's Clydeheath's Handsome Nell
A longer cast body than 1st & not the ribbing to match, has a pleasing head, in good condition with correct double coat, moved soundly fore & aft, well shaped & correctly set tail, good feet.

Good Citizenship Bitch 1st: Sleight's Mishahda Where It All Began
Pleasing size b with desirable skull, strength of jaw & expressive well placed eyes, correct ribbing & length of loin, good feet, sound mover. Well presented double coat & well handled & moved at correct pace.
