Kerry Blue Terriers
Three nice puppies but all of different stages of growth.
1 Davanis Granemoor Maximillian at Kebulak, 11 months male of lots of quality, loved his overall shape & size, very upstanding, very pleasing head shape with good jaw, nice neat ears with that nice eye, liked his neck & shoulders, good depth of body, good straight forelegs, well angulated quarters, & what a side gait this young lad has, excellent ground coverage when standing & on the move, well handled & presented. BP & RBD;
2 Moss & Clarkes’ Black Magic at Kopykats, 8 months, heavier in type than 1. Very mature body, in good coat, pleasing head with that most important eye & expression, good strength of muzzle, just preferred movement on the quarters on 1. Just needs to muscle up. Handled well;
3 Reads’ Kopykats King Of The Castle.

1 Munro’s Arkama Big Time, top quality male, real Kerry temperament, so well balanced, with a lovely outline, very well boned, loved his head & eye, super front, deep brisket, well ribbed with nice short coupling, tail set bang on top, powerful quarters, presented & handled as expected from this lady. Should be chasing CCs before long. BD.

1 Davies’ Perrisblu Kennislain’s Chelsey, top drawer material, overall type & shape excels, beautiful head with that correct expression, nice ears with well balanced skull, good foreface & jaw, correct strength, neck & shoulders good, well bodied with that correct coupling, super quarters, tail set bang on, in tip-top coat, handled to perfection, when moving covered the ground with ease. BOB, G2;
2 Davanis’ Naughty But Nice at Kopykats, again, a nice quality bitch as all from this kennel, lots to like especially her head, neck & shoulders. Not the body of the 1. Very well angulated & in good coat, moved with ease.
