I would like to thank the Border terrier Club for the invitation to judge at the Open Show at Low Hesket. It was an honour and privilege to be offered this appointment. I was delighted with the super entry of 96 dogs making a total entry of 132 and appreciate the turnout of so many fine dogs on the day and the sporting way my decisions were taken. Thank you to my ring stewards Ken Mackenzie and Dave Hodgson for keeping everything running smoothly for me. Also thank you to the committee for their hospitality and to Jane Shaw for providing a lovely lunch which I enjoyed very much.

This dark g/t border is a different type to my winner. He has a good head with his dark eyes giving him a keen expression. He has a much racier outline being built on finer lines than the winner with a lovely topline and tail well set on. I liked his handy size. Moved okay

2nd: Royday Noggin The Nog At Bonosue 
Different type to my winner. G/t with a super head, broad skull and short strong muzzle. Much heavier in build, not as narrow in front with good harsh coat and pelt. Moved okay. 

Novice – Dog Entries: 6  Absentees: 4

1st: Tyneaster Undercover Agent For Vandamere
Almost 10 months old g/t and reserve in my MPD class. He has a strong head but I would prefer a shorter muzzle and more fill under the eyes. He is narrow throughout with a good reach of neck and was well presented in a harsh coat. He is up on the leg, I hope he does not grow on. 

2nd: Earthwise Restless Knight At Pertyck
18 months old B/t dog. Nice headed dog with a good expression but not the strength in muzzle as winner. He has neat catlike feet, a good short tail and I like his handy size. His was shown in a very full coat today which might have benefited from a tidy up.

Open – Dog Entries: 6  Absentees: 0

1st: Wadesleia Mr Herriot (Mrs H A & Mr A Fletcher)
A light g/t tan dog that I have judged before and liked. He was just out of puppy the last time and he has matured nicely. He has a super otter head with broad, flat skull and a dark eye that gives him that varmint look with neat ears close to cheek. His muzzle is short and strong and he has nice big teeth. He has a good reach of neck that flows into a lovely top line with a short carrot tail straight off his back. He is narrow throughout and has a straight front with catlike feet and good rear angulation. He moved well both ways. He was my BD and it was a very close call in the challenge for BIS, but I felt the bitch just put in a bit more at that point. I was pleased to award him RBIS and BOS. Best Dog, BOS & RBIS

2nd: Keycharm Phantom by Ridgebow JW (Mr N Duxbury) 
A rich g/t dog that also has a super head, very strong and masculine. He is a lovely rich dark red grizzle and is longer in the body and a tad deeper in chest than winner. He has a nice straight front, good topline and catlike feet. He has a good coat and pelt and was in fit condition. He showed well and moved true.

Junior Handling
Judge Mrs Christine Horner

Class 6-11 years: No Entries

Class 12-16 years: 

1st : Caitlin Lister This young handler has a good rapport with her dog and very smart in appearance herself.
She also has a good understanding of what is needed for the JHA and nice to see her handling the dog in the main classes too. Caitlin is very able to show the teeth and knows the details of the dog very precisely and handles very sympathetically too. Best Junior Handler
It is sad to see that we only had the One JH at this show, and many other shows too, we all need to encourage the youngsters in our families to have a go.
