Norwich Terrier Club Championship Show
held on Sunday, 22nd. November 2015

at Roade Village Hall, Roade, Northants.

Judge: Mr. John Griffin (Burlmere)


I would like to thank the Norwich Terrier Club for allowing me to judge their Championship Show. The atmosphere was very friendly and my two stewards created a relaxed atmosphere and enabled the Show to run smoothly, one of them occasionally putting on a 'side show' to maintain the cosy, friendly and homely ambience.

Showing dogs is a hobby for most exhibitors and as such it should be enjoyable for both handler and dog but unfortunately many of the dogs did not seem to be enjoying themselves, in fact, they looked frightened and didn't use their ears. When showing your dog it is important to keep it interested, communicate with it regularly.

Junior Handling

Thank you for the invitation to judge the Junior Handling, such a shame we don't have more Juniors in the Breed.

Junior Handling 6 - 11 years:

1. Maisy Dent, aged 11 years. Smartly dressed young lady who showed her charge with ease. Followed my instructions showing the teeth & completed her pattern without getting in between the dog and the udge. Well done. BJH

Judge: Christine Hitchen (Kreatin)

2. Whitehead's Henri du Bocage des Soeurs (ATC AR01312 FRA), 14/03/12, Br L Leblanc,( Demerlay American Boy - Dieselle ), Smart B&T with a good coat that was well presented. He is carrying a little too much weight, which highlights his size, shorter neck, & shoulder placement, taking ones eye away from a lovely balanced head, good proportioned rear & good movement.


Post Graduate Dog (4,0):

1. Stevenson's Brickin Hot Of The Press, 06/09/13, Br: Exh, ( Brickin Morning Glory ­Ch Ragus Extra Hot ), A red dog who just needs time to develop, he has it all, super head & expression, good neck, lovely forequarters, level topline, good rear, short well ribbed body, short strong legs, & excellent coat. His movement was near perfect, a pleasure to see him striding out & enjoying himself. BD.
2. List's Ragus Morning Herald, 19/08/13, Br: Mrs A Gibons, (Ch Ragus Talk Of The Devil - Ragus Mayfair Morning ), A smart dog showing more maturity than 1, good for size,cobby& well balanced. Good head & muzzle with a good bite. Not quite as good in shoulders as 1, level topline& good width to hind quarters. Very much looked the part but could not match the movement of 1.RBD.
3. Haynes' Alantro's True Beginnings, 03/11/12. Br: Exh, (Ragus Hot Rod - Ragus Pure Diamond ), A compact dog of good size who again lost on movement to 1. Good head with lovely eye, good forequarters, deep chest with good ribbing, short back with good tail set. Could be stronger in rear which would help his hindquarters provide more drive.

Minor Puppy Bitch (5,1):

1. Stevenson's Brickin Show Piece, 14/08/14, Br: Exh, ( ChAm Ch Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow - Ragus Coming Up Next at Brickin ), Not a lot between these two babies, & no wonder as I find that they are litter mates. However someone has to win & I chose this one because I preferred her head at this stage. She has a slightly wider skull, with good set ears & expressive eyes. Good shoulder placement & length of neck, lovely body shape with short loin & short well boned legs, good width to hindquarters, & well set tail. Lovely B&T colouring to coat & very well presented. Moving positively in front with drive from those low hocks.
2. Davies' Brickin Choca Moca, B, 14/06/14, Br J Stevenson, ( Ch Am Ch. Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow - Ragus Coming Up Next at Brickin ), This girl can only improve with maturity, she has got what it takes. I will not repeat myself as she has the same positive points that her sister has. Just enjoy her showing & I am sure she will blossom.
3. Martin's Tinkave Brown Eyed Girl at Kirmir, 14/09/14, Br: J Lazenby, ( Ch/Am Ch Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow - Tinkave Diamond Girl ), A good headed puppy, but just lacks the substance & boning of the first 2. She showed & moved well to earn this place.


Puppy Bitch (1,0):

1. Walters' Saltarello Threepenny Bit (TAF) 03/06/14, Br. Mrs B Fraser. ( Nepomuk von Den Zwei Eichen at Saltarello (imp Aut) - Tasha von Den Zwei Eichen at Saltarello (imp Aut) ), A sweet girl with a good head, well placed forequarters & good length of neck. I found her a little narrow all through, not presenting the cobby-ness required. Her hindquarters are well constructed & she moved well.


Junior Bitch (1,0):

1. Hitchen's Kreatin Hidden Extra, 04/04/14, Br: Exh, ( Ch/Am Ch Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow - Ch Ragus Hidden Amber ), My notes say gorgeous! She stood alone, but as you see she later went BIS as there was nothing to touch her today. She has a truly wonderful head, with lovely eyes & good mouth, good length of neck, well placed shoulders, excellent body condition, well ribbed with good spring, level topline, broad hindquarters,shortstraight legsjust right for bone. Lovely length tail with good set on. Compact with substance. Her coat carried a bloom of condition with not a hair out of place. Later in the challenge, having other exhibits in the ring with her she pulled all the stops out, she stood naturally showing her perfect balance, & adding a ‘hidden extra' to her movement. BB, BPIS &BIS.


Special Beginners Bitch (1,0):

1. Haynes' Baktwins Amber Diamond at Alantro, 31/01/11, Br: Mrs BA Watkins, (Ch Titanium Columbus - Ragus Pure Diamond ), A smart bitch moving out well, low to ground with strong straight legs. Lovely head, short back well ribbed up & good hindquarters. Good for size & shown in great condition.

1. Haynes' Alantro First Steps, 28/07/13, Br: Exh, ( Ch/ Am Ch.Ascot Sanspur at Yarrow(Imp) ­Baktwins Amber Diamond at Alantro ), A happy girl showing her socks off, liked her size, shape, & substance. Good head & eye, good bite. Fair neck, good topline, muscular hindquarters. Good legs, short, with low set hocks.


Limit Bitch (3,1):

1. Stevenson's Brickin Glorious Morning, 06/09/13 Br Exh, ( Brickin Morning Glory ­Ch Ragus Extra Hot ), Lovely bitch for size, though lacking a little substance. Good head, good shoulder placement, short back, with good spring of rib & good rear angulation. Slight distraction was her tail which she held tightly over her back. Her movement was powerful & free.
2. Lazenby's Tinkave Diamond Girl, 26/07/12, Br: Exh, ( Ch Ragus Merry Gentleman - Ragus Diamonds Only )Close up to 1, as I preferred her compact shape & substance. Super head & shoulders, level topline, broad hindquarters but would like to see more bend of stifle.. Lovely coat very well presented.
