Kerry Blue Terriers:
1. Clarke-O’Neills Lemacdream The Navigator. Very attractive and appealing young dog, super head with keen expression and sense of alertness, good reach of neck flowing into good body with level topline and well set tail, wants to race away when moving and handler did well to control and keep him in check. BP.
2. O’Rourke’s Kebulak Rockin Robin. More forward in development than 1, good head developing, nicely set ears of good size, not moving as free as 1.
1. Wilkinson’s Granemore Padraig of Cranmoss. Square and compact in appearance, demonstrating compactness and strength in proportion, good clean front, well bodied with well set tail and plenty behind, in good coat, nice reach and drive when moving. Res Dog CC.
2. Clarke- O’Neill’s Lemacdream Rough Diamond. Powerfully built throughout, strong quarters producing solid drive, in final decision just preferred overall outline and balance of 1.
1. Crowley’s Perrisblue Kings Ransom. Another quality dog from this Kennel, great sense of balance and proportion and power, good head and neck flowing into well made shoulders, good back with level topline, nicely angulated rear, free and easy movement, a pleasure to go over. Dog CC, BOB and G1.
2. Davani’s Ch Kebulak Willie Nelson. Worthy champion but not putting it all in today. 3. Dale & Cooper’s Kamaghan Ace Lynnsto.
1. Ramsay’s Torum’s Dalls Rose. 11 mths old puppy and developing nicely, head coming on well, short body with good topline and tail set, just needs front to develop more with time to complete the picture.
2. Forrest & Scott’s Lacarnaveen Mary Kate. Another youngster of 11 mths, not as free on the move as 1, lots of potential and very close decision.
3. Earle & Kelly’s Dollagh All That Jazz.
1. Forrest & Scott’s Lacarnaveen Orla. Just out of puppy, coat and colour coming on well, long and strong head, well set ears, sound body, not always settling in movement.
1. Davani’s Kebulak Wheels on Fire. Square and compact and nicely proportioned, presenting nicely balanced outline, would like less hair on neck to improve flow into shoulders, flat shoulders, clean cut front, good coat and colour. Bitch CC.
2. Peacock’s Rimbert Queen Aravis. Nice type but unlucky to meet 1, soundly made throughout, good mover, final decision came down to overall balance and sense of awareness.
1.Martin’s Am Ch Cordial Goodbye Heart at Gaelgorm. Soundly constructed, powerful and robust, not always using her tail to advantage, but could not deny overall qualities, best mover in the class. Res Bitch CC.
2. Peacock’s Cranmoss Millie. Larger type but with good balance, let herself down on the move.
3. Davani’s Kebulak Agent Provocateur.
