It was an honour to be asked by the Kerry Blue Terrier Association of England to award Challenge Certificates at their Breed Club show on 6th of April 2008 It was also a great pleasure to have an entry of 66 dogs making up a total entry of 77. I would to take this opportunity to thank to all the exhibitors who turned up on such a snowy morning to show their dogs.
It is a couple of years since I have judged the breed in England and it was great to see so many new faces and so many quality dogs. As a general observation of the Breed on the day I would say that I found temperament and type excellent, especially in the youngsters, heads and mouths excellent. One of the negatives I found was in overall muscle condition especially soft inner thighs leading to some poor rear movement; I think a little more road work required for some folk.

Minor Puppy Dog
1st Cyres Master Craftsman Just six months old showed well for a puppy excellent head and wonderful expression just shaded Gerry Daly’s Daleso’s first class into second place. This was another excellent puppy I hope they keep progressing.

Puppy Dog
1st Kenmileven First Class For Kamaghan a well constructed puppy nice reach of neck. On the day his expression just didn’t catch my eye.
2nd Cyres the Master a nice puppy also but just didn’t settle time yet for this little fella to improve.

Junior Dog

1st Rimbert Phantom Menace Excellent young dog moved well I really liked his head with a small dark terrier eye giving excellent expression
2nd Kamaghan King of Swing at Maebryn is another nice type of dog well constructed with good reach of neck and excellent layback in shoulder moved and showed well.

Novice Dog
1st Brandyn The Mighty Atom This dog showed well, his head height and body are all in proportion. Nice colour for age. This dog was also first in Graduate Dog Class.

Limit Dog
1st Nedavir Notorious. An nice upstanding dog. This dog caught my eye the moment he entered the show ring. Excellent head and reach of neck covered the ground well and showed well.
2nd Arkarma Rockafella. Well presented dog who showed well on the day nice head expression with a good top line.

Open Dog
What a class! When these seven dogs came into the ring I knew I had my work cut out for me and when it came to the final decision it was a hairs breath between the first two dogs. I gave first place to Edbrios Amadeus, this dog did not put a foot wrong he moved and showed like a true showman. In terms of conformation of the Breed I can say he is really well made and he was presented in top condition. I gave second place to Ch & Ir Ch Cranmoss Finbar Of Colinca another fantastic dog who moved and showed well on the day.
