BVIS Mrs Brown & Mrs Grange's Ch Afinlea Roadside Skipper
Firstly I'd like to thank the club's members for giving me the honour
of judging this show, the club's committee and helpers who made it
run so smoothly, and the exhibitors who allowed me to judge their
dogs. I truly enjoyed the challenge of going over all these terriers
and finding my winners. The overall standard was good but two things
which I feel we all need to work on as a breed are movement and coats
as both were somewhat erratic today - although coats may primarily
be down to the time of year. Temperaments however were excellent which
was great to see.
Minor Puppy Dog (5 Entries / 2 Absent) 1. Bigland's Heythrop Tantrum
Tri Colour 7 month old - lacking coat today. Has a nice head and topline.
Good size overall. Movement does need to settle - a little erratic
at times today. RBPIS 2. Vaughan's Goldfern Grand Design Tri Colour
6mth old. Nice head and expression. Good coat. Front needs to tighten.
Wouldn't like him to grow on any more. 3. Douglas' Gone to Ground
Spick n'span Tan and White 6 month old. Slightly deeper in the chest
but spannable. Good coat. Head not as strong as I and 2 but plenty
of time to mature yet.
Puppy Dog (5/2) 1. Roberts and Murray's Chataway Pheasant Plucker
Tan and White 10mth old. Super correct shaped head with keen expression.
Nice topline, spannable, Good coat. Movement ok - showed well for
handler. 2. Baker's Pacolito Prymeval Tan and White. 9mth old. Good
harsh coat with super head & expression. Well balanced, spanned ok

coated Tri Colour. Good for overall size and balance. Well shaped
head with keen expression. Easy to span. Moved with drive to win the
class. 2.Eastwood's Pacolito Rogue Trader at Denlyhill Tri colour
with good strength of head. Easily Spanned but movement not as settled

today but has a lovely head and expression. Slightly deeper in chest
than 1 and 2 but spannable. Novice Dog (1/0) 1. Maguire's Gonetoground
Academy Award Tri Colour. Good head and lovely coat. Straight in front
but a little wide for me. Held topline well on the move.
Graduate Dog (2/0) 1. Bigland's Heythrop Tailwind Tan and White.
He is slightly longer in balance but has a well shaped head and front
with harsh coat. Movement needs to tighten 2. Hall's Frithgarth Mighty
Gandalf Well proportioned head with straight front. Well balanced
with super coat but slightly bigger and deeper in the chest than 1.
Post Graduate Dog (3/2) 1. Moore's Moonreapers Billy Bones Tan and

was not as good as 1 and 2
Junior Bitch (10/3) 1. Tinegate's Gonetoground Gogo Girl Well balanced

smaller size than 1 and 2. Good strength of head and lovely topline
particularly when moving.
