Judge: Mrs Sharon Ames (Sharnor)

I would like to thank the Officers and Committee of Guildford & District Canine Society for the opportunity to judge my first Terrier Group.  I would also like to thank them for their hospitality throughout the day.  I was very fortunate to have some super quality terriers to go over which were in good condition.

Ferguson’s Felfree Rocket ShCM – Manchester Terrier
A super dog but, up to size.  Outstanding condition. Very good head, and dark eye.  Lovely expression. Good teeth with strong jaw.  I would have preferred slightly smaller ears but he did use them very well.    Super, clean, well sloping shoulders.  Good length of back with an excellent topline.    Moved with purpose.  He took command of the ring as soon as he came in.  I was very pleased to award him Terrier Group 1.

Goddard’s Kgills King of Swing at Aw brooksky – Border Terrier
Very masculine red dog in excellent condition.  Good harsh coat and pelt.  I loved his head with dark eye and very keen expression.  Well ribbed with good length of back.  Strong loins.  Excellent tailset  Lovely movement.  Easily spanned. A very nice dog to go over.  Handled very well.

Foster’s Thozow Forget Me Not – WHWT
Another excellent terrier.  Such quality.  A little dog strongly built. Good head and loved her expression.  Extremely well muscled.  Excellent tailset.  Moved around the breed ring with such purpose, but I felt that she lost a bit of her sparkle in the Group ring. Put down to perfection and handled very well.

Goddard’s Awbrooksky Geeteethree
8 Month old puppy.  Lacks slightly in head but I am sure that with time this will strengthen.  She is a super size.  Good coat and pelt.  Nice dark eye with a keen expression.  Good small V shaped ears.  Excellent bite.  Super length of back and well ribbed.  Easily spanned. She showed really well.  Her movement today earned her this placing.

Gardener’s Perrisblu Ceris At Danalas. Norfolk Terrier
What a smart little “lady” she was, with such attitude.  Small, yet full of bone and substance.  Lovely dark eye and good expression.  Wonderful shoulders, well laid back.  Super forequarters and hindquarters moving very true both coming and going.  Level topline.  A pleasure to go over.

Kippen’s Carradine Dee Jay of Chezaku
This young dog did not want to settle today.  Everything was a big game.  Keen expression. Good weather resistant coat.  Very strong head.  Good angulations.  Just a bit too much of him.
