Thank you to the Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire Border Terrier Club for asking me to judge this show and for their great hospitality. It was an honour to stand in for Cynthia Knight who sadly passed away in April 2015. My stewards for the day, Cally and Anna did a sterling job in keeping things running smoothly, thank you, to both of them. I thoroughly enjoyed myself today and I was delighted with my top winners. In general some exhibits, even though made well were just too big and heavy, these would never get to ground to do the job, therefore not fit for purpose. I like a dog to be masculine and a bitch feminine, but both have to spannable and not overloaded in their shoulders, sadly quite a few exhibits were just this and were penalised for it. I found one exhibit to have a testicle with an abnormality. Some of the younger dogs were up to size already and have yet to stop growing. It will be interesting to see how some of them turn out. Not everybody accepted my decisions in a sporting manner, but the general atmosphere was great. I didn’t go to the pub at lunch time but did see the pictures afterwards. Glad you all had a great time! 

 Judge: Miss J Price 

Entries: 124 Dogs making 151 entries 8 NFC

 Minor Puppy Dog Entries: 5 Absentees: 1

 1st - Keebank Jack Frost (Mrs L Keeffe) Under all that lovely thick jacket I found an eight month old puppy which was the right size for his age. Shown in full double jacket. He looked heavier than he was but it was all coat and pelt, and I was able to easily span him. He has a good head which is in proportion to his size. His has a narrow front with laid back shoulders and a good length of rib. A nice level top line, with a correct shaped carrot tail. He moved well for a youngster on nice small tight feet. BPIS 

 2nd - Fieldsearch Physique (A Pearson & D Towers) A six month old puppy, which has more leg under him the 1, and looked rangier. I was able to span him; he has a good length of body, but just not as happy on the move as the winner

Puppy Dog Entries: 6 Absentees: 1 

1st - Fieldsearch Firecracker (A Pearson & D Towers) Ten months old and already up to size. A puppy with a narrow front and a racy outline. He has a good bend of stifle and was the better mover overall. 

 2nd - Remony For A' That (Mrs A E Gregory) Deeper in chest than 1, good length of body. A little unbalanced in his outline.

Junior – Dog Entries: 11 Absentees: 0 

 1st - Oakyard Out N'about At Dassett (Mrs S Spafford) This is a dog with attitude, love it. A handsome red grizzle dog, with a good otter head and a very keen expression. He is balanced, with a pleasing outline. He has a good length of neck flowing into laid back shoulders, flat ribs and was easily spanned A little erratic on the move but he was really on his toes. A masculine dog without being overdone 

 2nd - Tojamatt Rhythm N'blues at Raedwulf (Mr M & Mrs V Atkinson) This dog also has a good otter head with a narrow front and is again masculine without being overdone. He stood on lovely tight feet although down on his pasterns a little. 

Yearling - Dog Entries: 6 Absentees: 2 

 1st - Thornheswin Red Ruffian (Mr J C Dixon) A red dog which has a balanced outline and narrow front. He has a level top line, he stands on tight cat like feet and moved well. 

2nd - Tojamatt Moriarty (Mr & Mrs D Matthews) Better head than 1, also balanced with a good tight coat in excellent condition more angulated rear. He pulled on the move and this unfortunately spoilt his front or the placing could have been reversed. 

Novice - Dog Entries: 4 Absentees: 2 

1st - Jrasamuyr Codex (Miss C Khatchikian) Narrower of these two exhibits with a racy outline and well muscled hindquarters. 

 2nd - Coolham Buck (Mrs F Markham) Wider in front and deeper in his brisket than 1. A nice level topline and a good bend of stifle. 

 Post Graduate - Dog Entries: 9 Absentees: 0 

 1st - Stineval Pontiac From Thornheswin (Mr C Dixon) A red grizzle dog, which was easily spanned and of the correct size. He has a double coat, nice level top line and good set on. He showed very well, he has a god bend of stifle and moved with drive.

 2nd - Rhozzum Gwilym (Mrs M Sharp) Blue and Tan dog which is a bigger dog altogether than 1, although with a better, stronger head, I just prefer the size of 1.

Limit - Dog Entries: 9 Absentees: 1 

 1st - Ravenside Rumours About Caldewgate (Mr A E Burke) Love this dog for his type and character, he was vocal on the table but his demeanour reassured me that this was not a grumble. He is so engaging and aware of his surroundings in true terrier style. He has a good otter head and lovely kind eye. He has a good reach of neck flowing into laid back shoulders and a narrow front, standing on nice small feet. His length of body is in proportion with his size. He is constructed well and has well angulated hind quarters which allow him to move with drive. So pleased to award him the DCC. 

 2nd - Chatmoss Bullet Tooth Tony JW (Miss J Hughes & Mr M J L Kendrick) A lot to like about this dog, lovely balanced outline, just not as narrow in front as 1 which was noticeable when on the move.

 Open - Dog Entries: 9 Absentees: 1 

 1st - CH Bandicoot Doc Martin (Ms V L K Docwra) A masculine dog which is up to size. He has good head with a dark eye and keen expression. Wearing plenty of jacket today and I think this just spoilt his outline a little especially around his neck, it made it look thicker than it actually was. He had better front movement than 2 today. RDCC 

 2nd - Int CH / Ir CH Ploughdown Plato (Mr E & Dr M Armstrong) Blue and Tan with a pleasing head and expression. Super topline and racy hindquarters, presented in an excellent condition, better rear movement than 1. This result could easily have been reversed. 

 Veteran - Dog Entries: 2 Absentees: 1 

 1st - Minx's Diamond (Mrs M Anderson) A 10 year old dog in very good condition, with a tight, coarse jacket. He has good length of body however a little too deep in his brisket. He moved well. 

 Special Beginners - Dog Entries: 2 Absentees: 0

 1st - Bowencloud Busy Bee (Mrs S J Ruth) Racier and narrower than 2.

 2nd - Coolham Buck (Mrs F Markham) Better headed dog of these two exhibits. 

 Minor Puppy - Bitch Entries: 8 Absentees: 3 

 1st - Keebank Snow Queen (Mrs L Keeffe) I was pleased to see that she is the sister to the Minor Puppy Dog winner. She is a feminine puppy with a good otter head and kind eye. She has a narrow front and she also moved well. 

 2nd - Ravenside Calima (Mr M Lowry) An eight month old puppy blue and Tan with a better topline than class winner. Also narrow in front with nice length of body and flat ribs. I would just like her to be stronger in her muzzle to balance the picture. 

 Puppy - Bitch Entries: 7 Absentees: 1 

 1st - Blaisdon Step In Time (Miss A Thomas & Mr J Thomas) A ten month old puppy, with a lovely otter head and short powerful muzzle. She has a good narrow front She is shorter in her length of body than 2, making her look a little deeper in her chest. She was presented in excellent condition, moved and showed well. 

 2nd - Ravenside Masena (Mr M Lowry) Very much like her litter sister with a good length of body and balanced outline. She is feminine but again I would just like her to be stronger in her muzzle to balance the picture. 

 Junior - Bitch Entries: 8 Absentees: 1 

 1st - Oakyard On Song (Mr J Parry) A balanced, red grizzle bitch of a lovely type. She has a narrow front, spannable and stood on small cat like feet. She was a bit short of coat today so really easy to see how she is made. She moved and showed well. 

 2nd - Karison Krumble (Miss K Johnson) This bitch has better laid back shoulders than class winner and she was a smaller bitch altogether under her thick jacket. She has a narrow front and straight legs. Easily spanned, well muscled and angulated hind quarters.  

Yearling - Bitch Entries: 13 Absentees: 4

 1st - Bon Appetit By Tythrop (Mrs J L Lee) Good body line and balanced, with correct good laid back shoulders. She has a better otter head than 2 with a more powerful under jaw. However her dark muzzle gives her a harsh expression. She covered the ground well and showed beautifully. 

 2nd - Ploughdown Paloma (Mr E & Dr M Armstrong) Another nice bitch of correct proportions. She has a nice straight front, and well-angulated hindquarters, presented in good coat and condition. She stands on small tight feet and moved well 

Novice - Bitch Entries: 9 Absentees: 2

 1st - Oakyard On Song (Mr J Parry) Comments as before and this bitch was the better mover of them all.

 2nd - Shiftyfox Fairymist (Pearson & Towers) This bitch has a lovely sweet feminine head a good reach of neck. Overall she was more compact being he was shorter in the leg and body. She has a good bend of stifle. 

 Post Graduate - Bitch Entries: 9 Absentees: 1 

 1st - Bandicoot Dragon Glass (Mrs V L K Docwra) Well, when I was looking through the CD of the photographs of the show, this one caught my eye and I was pleased to see it was my BIS winner. She is a quality bitch of the correct size and proportions. I liked everything about her and she moved soundly with drive. 

 2d - Terabyte Dawnanna At Blaisdon (Mr J N & Miss A J Thomas) A red bitch presented in excellent condition, A little longer in muzzle, bit with a pleasing expression. She has a correct straight narrow front was of a nice size and balanced. Did not show quite as well as class winner. 

 Limit - Bitch Entries: 10 Absentees: 2 This was the hardest class of the day to judge, as all of the exhibits were very different. 

 1st - Remony Frosted Ivy JW ShCM (Mrs A Gregory) A racy bitch which was slightly more balanced than 2, having a narrow front and more laid back shoulders although having quite a deep brisket. A well angulated rear, small feet and short carrot tail.

 2nd - Brankell Double Or Quits JW (Mr P Brannan & Miss M Kelly) A lot to like about this bitch, lovely head, strong muzzle and dark eye. Looks well when stood, with a good bend of stifle. Just a little over loaded in her shoulders hence a touch wider in front than on the move. 

Open - Bitch Entries: 10 Absentees: 1 

1st - Olympia De Paris Fiery Lucifer (Mr Z Kubik) This bitch is very much like the BIS winner, they would make a lovely brace. She has a good reach of neck flowing into good laid back shoulders and a level topline, A lovely feminine bitch with a pretty otter head, dark eye and good teeth. She has a straight front and well muscled hindquarters and moved more soundly the 2. Her coat was just past its best. RBCC,

 2nd - CH Chorbeck Gossip Girl At Blackmine JW (Miss Tracey James & Mrs Michelle Render) Not much to choose between this bitch and the class winner as they are very similar stood; my decision was made on class winner having more positive movement. 

Special Beginners - Bitch Entries: 2 Absentees: 0 

 1st - Borderstream Maisey (Mr & Mrs S J Ward) This puppy was 3rd in Puppy class. She has a good length of neck, not too deep in her brisket and showed well.

 Special Dog or Bitch Holding a Working Certificate Entries: 3 Absentees: 0

 1st - Ragatam Equalizer Via Ycart (Mr K K & Mrs T J Fraser & Butler) 13 years old and still easily spanned. He has some teeth missing, which is understandable. Not over done in any respect and moved well. 

 2nd - CIB CH FR/IT/CRO/SLO/RSM Stonechester Apostraphe Von Jrasamuyr MFH (Miss C Khatchikian) Rangier than 1, but larger all round and wider in front. 3rd - CIB CH FR/IT/CRO/SLO Stonechester Question Von Jrasamuyr MFH (Miss C Khatchikian)

Judge's Critique 

                        Yorks Lancs & Cheshire Border Terrier Club Open Show 

 28th January 2017

 My thanks to the Committee for asking me to judge this show , my Stewards Callie and Ian for their invaluable assistance and all the exhibitors for allowing me to judge their dogs . I had some quality dogs to go over with some close decisions in some classes , however , I found front movement in particular was rather disappointing in the lower classes .That aside I thoroughly enjoyed my day .
