I thoroughly enjoyed judging The Border Terrier Club Championship Show on 26th March 2011 at Carlisle Racecourse. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the exhibitors for bringing their dogs along and also thank the Club for such a lovely present. Overall I have to say that the quality of the entire entry was quite good, but the movement of some exhibits was concerning. Another problem for me was exhibits not being in condition, some lacking muscle and substance and in a few instances they were a little overweight.

Veteran – Dog Entries: 7 Absentees: 5 

1st: CH Ashbrae Poacher (Mr A & Mrs E Cuthbertson) A dog I have judged before. Still maintaining his youthfulness. Strong masculine otter head, lovely rich red colour. He is balanced and a nice type. Moved well.

1st: Tythrop Tap on Wood for Ravenside (NAF) (Mr M Lowry) Although a bit of a handful on the table, he did manage to pull it together to win this class. Good front and rear assembly. His coat was harsh and his pelt thick. He was easily spanned and moved well. He is only a youngster, but hopefully, will have more to come. Time will tell.

2nd: Ravenside Work Force (Mr M Lowry) Has similar lines to the winner of this class, he has an excellent coat and was in good condition. Just preferred the movement and outline of the winner.

Res: Foxcraig Magic Max at Tyneaster (Mrs S F Gill)

Limit – Dog Entries: 11 Absentees: 4 

1st: Ravenside Ballymoss (Mr M Lowry) This dog, I think, is approaching his full potential; he looked the part and was in fine form and is pleasing in so many respects. He has matured in head and body, his movement is steady and covers the ground with drive and purpose. He has correct angulation fore and aft, with a well constructed, toned body covered in a good double coat and a thick pelt. I liked his size and type, he is not overdone in any way. DOG CC & RBIS

2nd: Onthill Super Trouper (Mr R & Mrs A M Ramus) Litter brother to Res CC winner, similar to his brother only slightly larger made. Unfortunately he did not seem to enjoy his day out which was a pity as I have seen him on better form than he was today.

3rd: Rubicon Raincloud ShCM (Mrs G Hyslop) 

Minor Puppy – Bitch Entries: 6 Absentees: 1 

1st: Oughterside Magic Sky (Master R W Scott) Nice feminine head, with a short strong muzzle. She was in a good double coat and easily spannable. Her size was pleasing but her showmanship needs to develop along with her front movement.

2nd: Alcumlow Miss Sixty at Riseburn (Miss C Tutin) Blue and Tan, Up to size for a minor puppy, for me, she was just lacking in head and strength of muzzle, but this may improve with maturity. Front movement needs to settle.

Res: Tyneaster Bowmore Duana (Mrs S F Gill) 

VHC: Roxess If By Magic (Mr & Mrs J T Todd) 

Puppy – Bitch Entries: 16 Absentees: 12 

1st: Bramblebrae Violet (Mr G Wildey) Blue and tan, a nice type, I liked her size, outline and balance. She has a feminine head with a strong muzzle. Her front was straight, racy lines and balanced. She was sound in movement. Just needs to body up and develop substance. Best Puppy Bitch

2nd: Kgills Five Jive (Mrs J Broomhead) Another Blue and Tan which was larger made overall, with enough bone and substance for her age. Her movement and outline could not match that of the winner.

3rd: Dandyhow Myrtle (Mrs M Brown) 

Res: Hewbay Blue Neon (Mr & Mrs Cranson) 

Junior – Bitch Entries: 12 Absentees: 7 

1st: Fehmarn Fine Romance (Mrs J Morton Shaw) I liked her otter shaped head, keen expression. She has a short strong muzzle and nicely placed ears and was presented in a harsh double coat. Her feet were tight, front was straight and she is a nice size and type. Hindquarters were nicely angulated which enabled her to move with drive and purpose.

2nd: Badgerholme Ascot Opal (Mr & Mrs B Dickinson & Miss T James) Up to size and in full coat which made her look heavier than she was. I liked her head and expression. She has a good scissor bite and large teeth. She has racy lines but looked a tad long in body. Showed well.

3rd: Picer Beersheba (Mr A & Mrs H A Fletcher) 

Res: Carrock Cupcake (Ms J Fawcett) 

VHC: Seymours Bubble and Squeak for Ralenrio (Mr D J & Mrs D A Lorraine)

1st: Howthwaite in Violet (Mr R and Mrs E Barrett) What a joy to go over, she has a striking outline and was immaculately presented, in first class condition, she is beautifully balanced, stylish and feminine. Her blue and tan coat was of the correct texture with ticking. She has lovely dark eyes and a keen expression. Her ears are neat and correctly placed with a strong muzzle and large teeth. She has a good length of neck, correct bone and front angulation leading to neat, tidy feet. I was able to span her with ease; her ribs were that nice ‘V’ shape in the hands, which enhanced her racy outline. She also has well angulated hindquarters; her second thigh was evident as was a correct turn of stifle. When asked to move she covered the ground effortlessly and soundly. She was in unison with her handler. Bitch CC and BIS.

2nd: Tojamatt Isolde (Mr D & Mrs A Matthews) Nice type with a feminine otter head, she is good for size, with well angulated hindquarters. Moved soundly around the ring.
