Special Lakeland Terrier Companion Dog or bitch (1-0)

Post Graduate Dog (1,0)
1st Graham s - Stanstead Feel Free to Stare Blue dog, good neck & shoulder, Short coupled with a lovely big backside on him, tail on top, coat of good texture but could do with a little bit more finishing. Good profile & a sound confident mover.
Limit Dog (1:0)
1st Leadbeatter & Kerrigan s - Leadstaffs Sensation A good fronted dog with a lovely long neck and a super front on him, good stifle bend and tail on top looked a little unbalanced today, although a sound animated mover, he does seem to like to tell his mum when to apply the brakes!
Open Dog (3:2)

Eskwyre Back in the Red Smashing dog, sharp & alert terrier, good body on him, with a lovely clean head, long neck, well laid shoulders, good rear angulation with tail on top, a picture in profile lovely rich red and presented in great coat & condition.
Puppy Bitch (5:1)
Toughest Class of the day!
1st & BPIS JT & G Peart s - Kilvermin Dark Secret This is a quality puppy, she needs a little more confidence but that ll come with practice, good size & substance good head & ears, good big strong teeth, good strength of muzzle, lovely long neck, straight front, good rear end & bend of stifle, tail on top when confident. Sound on the move when settled.
2nd Byrne Vickers & Punters - Eskwyre Never Been Kissed Very Pretty bitch in cracking coat & condition, clean head, strong muzzle in proportion with her head, good neck & shoulder and a sound animated mover, I just preferred the size & substance of 1st but they could easily change places another day.
3rd N & S Connells - Sonorra the Witch
4th M & T Hickman s - Sonorra Witches Brew
Junior Bitch (2:0)
1st Byrne Vickers & Punters - Eskwyre World on a String Certainly had her handler on a string and gave her a bit of a hard time . Pretty, compact bitch of good proportions, very feminine, good head & expression in super coat & condition , a sound mover when settled.
2nd JT & G Peart s - Kilvermin Belladonna litter sister to 1st in puppy bitch slightly better shoulder than her sister and a confident happy mover but a little longer in back as in puppy bitch the placings in this class could reverse another day.
Novice Bitch (2:1)
1st M & T Hickman s - Sonorra Witches Brew 4th in puppy bitch, young handler who is doing a great job, nicely trimmed & in great fettle, a very pretty bitch who can move when she s trying.
Post Graduate Bitch (2:1)
1st Whitehead s - Stanstead Dita Von Teese She s all go this one!! Just 6 months, all terrier attitude and a handful to boot. Nice to handle when she s still & sound from all angles when she slows down enough to judge.
Limit Bitch (2:1)
1st Best Bitch & BIS Byrne Vickers & Punters - Eskwyre Black Dahlia a bitch of quality in great coat & condition, good clean head & good ear placement straight front, long neck, well laid shoulders she can be a bit lazy with her topline while stacked but she holds it beautifully on the move & the biggest rear end I think I ve ever seen on a lakie bitch, good bend of stifle, tail on top, it was her head, ears and rear angulation that put her above the dog for Best in Show.
Open Bitch (2:1)
1st J & V Kenyon s Glentops Brittania at Wyndam A strong substantial bitch in great coat & condition, good profile, very animated & showed well, but her rear movement wasn t her fortune today.
Lakeland Terrier Veteran Dog or Bitch (2:1)
1st Mackenzie s Rayfos Windstorm. A very exuberant & animated 11& a1/2 years young, compact bitch with good head neck & shoulders well muscled throughout. good rear shelf & angulation, ears could be tighter to her skull Moved & showed with a gusto that would put the youngsters to shame.
Ernest & Hilda Varley Memorial Stakes Dog or Bitch (6:4)
1st Mackenzie s - Nyamindi Buccaneer storm Pipped his mum to the post here for shoulder placement and just that bit more elegance throughout.
2nd Mackenzie s Rayfos Windstorm
