Peter Bakewell’s Critique for the Terrier Group At WELKS
I was honoured to be invited to judge the Group in place of Mr. Pinto Texeria from Portugal who was unable to attend the Show. My thanks go to the committee for their hospitality and a most enjoyable day.
All 15 terriers were present and I was pleased with the standard and quality of the exhibits sent forward by the breed judges. I short listed 6 from the group for further consideration the Bedlington, Border, Norwich, Irish, Staffordshire Bull and the Wire Fox for one final move and the winner of the group was the Wire Fox, Travella Star Lord, a quality soundly made dog of good type, lovely head with dark eye, keen expression, good shoulders and forequarters, good body, short back, strong muscular hindquarter which moved with good driving action
G2 went to Drumbilla Misty Lady a smart well balanced Irish, soundly constructed with good quarters fore and aft. Good head and type, keen expression, good neck flowing into well placed shoulders and level top line, lovely body, well set tail. A sound mover.
G3 was Ch Gnejnabay Genegenie Gal At Lowbrook JW ShCM, a well balanced Bedlington, good outline, good head and ears, correct front, good ribs and body, good muscular hindquarters. Moved very well
G4. Went to the Border Ch Rossula Magic Borderer At Clipstone, a nicely made dog pleasing in outline and overall balance. Good head, dark eye, keen expression, good spanable ribs carried well back, strong loin, good pelt. Moved soundly from good quarters. Good showman.
