BEDLINGTON JUDGE DARLINGTON 21
Thank you to the Society for my judging opportunity, my stewards and to the exhibitors for taking their time to travel and prepare their dogs. The exhibits were of high quality and with many close decisions. There was one incorrect bite, movement was disappointing in many of the dogs.
1 Lockett & Markwell’s Durhamites Unzip Bojo. Larger puppy with strong long head, shoulders and topline, needs more time to settle.
1 Offer’s Woolytop The Viking. Correct bite, good fill and flat cheeks. Has muscle to thighs, held topline on the move and tail carried correctly, coat coming through.
2 Baldwin’s Woolytop The Piper’s Son JW. Similar notes to first, nice shape with sloping shoulders and flat sides. Just unsettled on the move.
1 Middlebrook’s Tcheria Tcharleston. Good head and expression, deep chest, good topline and low tail carriage, clean feet and sloping pasterns. Presented well, moving confidently and positively from all angles. DCC, BOB, TG4.
2 Hewitt-Taylor’s Mollora Red Kite For Tobanie. Strong head with long foreface, correct shoulders, topline and tail set. Good outline and caught my eye, eventually settled on the move. RDCC.
1 Oxbury & Tonner’s Miteymidgets Nations Unite At Jukenblu ShCM. Feminine bitch with a good shoulders and bone, spotlessly clean white teeth. Moved steadily. BV, BVT.
2 Jones OBE’s Tcheria Tydfil Of Pengerrig. Dark blue with fine head, good length of neck. Has bone, liked her angulation. Preferred the movement of first.
1 Lockett & Bailey’s Sharnor Pretty Picture. Narrow head and correct dark eyes, little short in the neck at the moment, shoulders ok, nice size, moved playfully. BP.
1 Jones’ Toolbox Yes Why Not At Squidlyannes. Nice head with correct ear set and nice length of neck, good muscle to thigh and liked her outline. Out of coat at the moment, moved well concentrating at all times.
2 Porter-Manning’s Woolytop Secret Wispa Among Wallaroo. Nice size bitch with flat shoulders and good depth of brisket. Colour coming through, reluctant to move today.
1 Jones’ Miteymidgets Little Hottie At Squidlyannes. Good neck and shoulders, nice length to height, low hocks and sloping pasterns, good coat texture and even blue colour, moved with purpose. BCC.
2 Hewitt-Taylor’s Rathsrigg Rosabella For Tobanie. Another quality blue in dark coat, good head with dark eyes and good length to foreface. Nice shape stood, moved well in front.
1 Jones OBE’s Pengerrig Pure Heart. Nice head and neck, flat shoulders, held her topline on the move and carried tail correctly, good coat and colour.
2 Baldwin’s Woolytop Leading Lady. Good head and ears, nice shoulders and rear angulation, good depth of chest.
1 Fletcher’s Maevani Bella Trix Lstrange. Feminine bitch with a lovely expression, good topline and low tail carriage. Good body colour, liked her length to height. RBCC.
2 Scott’s Ch Janmark Just Do It. Good colour, length to back and low tail carriage, I feel her shoulders need to finish, good rear angulation, preferred the movement of first.
