Firstly i would like to thank the committee of Leeds for inviting me to judge at their show. Great to be back out there amongst the dog world enthusiasts, Since judging Bedlington Terriers 3 years ago i feel the breed is losing its way a little. Thick ears are not part of the breed standard, Along with Lack of depth, Narrow fronts and no rear angulation.

PD. 1

1st. Jackson & Jackson's Woolytop The Marshman At Padztar. Up to size youngster, Nice in head and correct bite, ample depth, firm rear moves okay. Watch his weight.

PGD. 3

1st. Offer's Woolytop The Viking. A nice young dog with good head, small eye good dentition with a strong jaw. Moderate length of neck into a good lay of shoulder and ample depth throughout. Correct top line, firm rear and one who moves well.

2nd. Cooper's Plumeria's Dolphin Striker. ( IMP IT ). Another decent specimen. A little finer in head than 1 but some good virtues, Nice eye, good bite with fine leathers, Nice reach into well laid shoulders, Well off for bone and substance moved well covering plenty of ground.

3rd. Jackson & Jackson's Woolytop The Saxon At Padztar.

CC.

PB. 1

1st. Gillies, Rhicullen Saphire- A pretty young puppy, Feminine with some good virtues, Enjoyed her day out and one who needs time.

JB. 5

1st. Scott's Janmark Just Di It. This is a very nice young bitch and on the day, she Just Did It. She caught my eye with her vim and vigour when she entered the ring, Standing she is a picture, Beautiful head, From Nose to Hock is one flowing continuous line. Small dark triangular eye with fine thin leathers and correct dentition. The best of fronts with lovely depth and good ribs, Nice firm loin with visible tuck up. A firm muscular rear and on the move, she owned that ring. An honour to judge and pleased to award her her first CC & BOB. A Champion in the making.
