I would like to thank The Border Terrier Club for the invitation & thank my 2 very capable Stewards Carolyn Richardson & Liz Barrett for their help on the day. I would also like to thank those exhibitors who entered under me and who accepted the placings sportingly. I was pleased to have a number of high quality entries but the down side of that is, some good dogs went card less.
Mouths are a bit of a worry as I noticed a few with a tooth or teeth out of line, small teeth and one even undershot. Movement on the whole was good especially in my winners.  Coats & pelts were good too,with just a few thin pelted dogs.

Limit Dog Entries: 7  Absentees: 1

1st: Dandyhow Captain Morgan (Mrs K M Irving) Super dog, perfect sized Grizzle & tan dog of great type, I loved his head & expression. He was balanced, free moving &  has a good rib, neat feet & good coat. Good muscle tone, he steps out well and has bags of breed type. This all made up a dog much better looking on the move than when stood still, he is the most reluctant showman when standing. However looking past him giving his handler a hard time he couldn't be denied the Dog CC & BOS & Reserve BIS
2nd: Mysulan Going Solo JW (Mrs S J Baxter) Very nice and attractive racy blue & tan carrying a good coat & pelt. Good bone and nice bend of stifle makes up a well balanced typy dog.
