Scottish Terrier Club (England) Open Show 23rd April 2022

 An enjoyable morning was spent with the Scotties and my grateful thanks to the Officers and Committee for affording myself the opportunity to preside over your Club Open Show. A good paper entry was depleted somewhat on the day due, I was informed, to a breakout of kennel cough contracted by some at a previous show. Dogs were quite thin on the ground but there were a good number of bitches present and overall still a pleasing entry to cast my eye over.

Special Triers D (3,0)
1. Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Ruffian. A somewhat varied class to start the day with three quite different dogs competing. The winner was this black puppy who is just approaching 7 mths. Obviously quite raw but for me he presented the best outline and was nice and short in back. Nicely proportioned head with fairly wide skull, slight stop, dark expressive eyes, ears of correct size and set, strong muzzle and good dentition. Neck of moderate length, ribcage extending well back and rib developing well for age, short loin and tail of good set and carriage. Pleasing angles front and rear, moving out with purpose but a tad wider when coming towards. Jacket of decent texture. Best Puppy Dog. 

2. Ashworth’s Russalan Crimson Coburn. This 13 mth old black has lots to like but he is a tad longer cast and therefore did not present quite the outline I was looking for. Muscular neck of medium length, good length to ribcage, topline could be tad firmer to advantage, good depth to brisket, broad loin and tail set on well and of good carriage. Attractive head with good skull to muzzle proportions, fairly wide skull, correct stop, nice dark eyes, ears of good set, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Shoulders well laid and firm, muscular hindquarters with good turn of stifle. Moving out with drive and very well handled. Wiry texture to coat. 

3. McCracken’s Our Black Jack for Amawyn

 PD (3,2)
1. Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Ruffian

 JD (1,0)

1. Ashworth’s Russalan Crimson Coburn

LD (2,1)

1. McCracken’s Our Black Jack for Amawyn. 6 yr old black who is well boned and carries good substance. Muscular neck of moderate length, tail good for both set and carriage and shelf behind, however he is longer cast than the ideal and therefore is not entirely balanced. Forechest of good breadth and correct ground clearance. Decent angulation front and rear and he moves particularly well behind with good carriage. Pleasing head with masculine expression; fairly wide skull, correct stop, dark expressive eyes, ears good for size and set and good dentition. Plenty of texture to jacket. Well handled.

 OD (2,1)

1. Mahmoudi’s Glengracie Jetson. 6 yr old brindle who has lots of plusses but he could make more of himself to advantage. He pleased for type and was good to go over. Neck of moderate length, firm topline although another who is a fraction longer in back than the ideal, well rounded ribs which are carried well back, muscular loin and tail good for both set and carriage with dog behind the tail. Nicely proportioned head with masculine expression; dark eyes of pleasing shape, ears of good set, strong muzzle and good dentition. Broad chest and sloping shoulders with good return of upper arm. Moving well in front but could drive more from behind. Reserve Best Dog.

 VD/B (2,0)

1. Broome’s Liroda Midnight Kiss at Evingbriar. Showy 7 yr old black bitch who has lots to like. She pleased for type and presented a nicely balanced outline with muscular neck, short back with firm topline, lovely rib with good clearance, short broad loin and tail set on well of pretty good carriage and with shelf behind. Feminine headpiece of good skull to muzzle proportions, dark almond-shaped eyes, ears of good set, correct stop and strong muzzle. Good angles front and rear and well muscled throughout. A tad too much breadth in front but this does not reflect on the move. Moving out with attitude and very well handled. Best Veteran in Show.

2. Wilcock & Hebditch’s Millingford King of Hearts (Re-Imp). 7 yr old black dog and another who pleased but movement and attitude could not match that of winner. He appealed for overall type and presented a nice outline with muscular neck of moderate length, firm topline, good length to ribcage which is well rounded, deep brisket, short broad loin and tail set on well and of correct length and carriage. Attractive head of good proportions with masculine expression; fairly wide skull, good planes, correct stop, dark eyes which are set fairly wide apart, ears of good size and set, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Would just like to see a tad more breadth to forechest. Wiry jacket with good undercoat. Best Dog here today scoring for overall type.

 Special Triers B (3,1)

1. Greenwood’s Carisco Return Amber to Petmon. 4 yr old black who won this class with some room to spare. She presents a pleasing outline with neck of correct length to balance, nice short back, firm topline, ribbed well back, deep brisket, good ground clearance and tail of correct set with upright carriage. Feminine head of good skull to muzzle proportions, slight stop, dark expressive eyes, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Would like to see a little more forechest. Moving well enough all through and uses herself as she goes. Fair texture to coat.

2. Davies’ Charlilymae Funshine Jovi. This 9 mth old pup is a completely different type to the winner. She has a nice length of neck and is firm in topline but she is a little longer in leg and there is too much daylight beneath. Obviously only a youngster and therefore rib will develop in time and hopefully this will help. Feminine head of pleasing proportions, parallel planes, slight stop, ears of good set, dark eyes although a tad rounder than preferred, strong muzzle and good dentition. Moving ok but would like to see more drive from behind. Super temperament.

 PB (4,1)

1. Beckton & Bouwhuis’ Glengracie Fat Bottom Gal. 6 mth old black who appealed for overall type and balance. Feminine throughout she presented a lovely outline with medium length of neck, short back with firm topline, rib developing nicely for age, short loin and tail good for length, set and carriage. Attractive head with keen expression; good skull to muzzle proportions with parallel planes, correct stop, lovely eye and ear and strong muzzle. Pleasing angles front and rear, good breadth in front and forechest developing well. Free, purposeful gait and very well handled. Jacket of good texture. Best Puppy in Show.

2. Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Gift. Just coming up to 7 mths old, this black is of completely different type to the winner but another with lots to like. She has a little more length in body than the winner but pleased for neck, topline and tail set and carriage, although tail is somewhat longer. Feminine headpiece with good proportions and parallel planes, dark almond-shaped eyes, ears of correct set, slight stop and scissor bite. Nicely angulation both ends, standing on good feet and moving out with drive from the rear. Just a tad wider in front when coming at you. Coat texture not that of winner.

3. Davies’ Charlilymae Funshine Jovi

 JB (3,2)

1. Kirk Gellatly’s Whitwitch Fire Starter. 16 mth old who pleased for type and is absolutely full of character. Feminine, well proportioned head, with parallel planes, dark eyes which are placed well apart, ears of good set, correct stop, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Muscular neck but would like to see a tad more length, short back with firm topline, very rounded in rib and a little more depth to brisket than preferred. She has pleasing angulation front and rear, good breadth to forechest and moves out with purpose and drives well from behind. Pretty good texture to jacket. 

NB (3,1)

1. Greenwood’s Petmon Royal Gift

2. Dauncey’s Glenmiar Winter Berry. 3 yr old who was not at all relaxed and therefore did not show herself off to advantage. Pleasing for type and carrying lovely bone and substance throughout. Muscular neck which could have a tad more length, short back with straight topline, ribbed well back and brisket of good depth, short broad loin and nice thick tail of good set and carriage. Nicely proportioned head with feminine expression; fairly wide skull, parallel planes, nice eye and ear, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Sloping shoulders, good breadth of chest and muscular hindquarters with nice strong hocks. Difficult to assess movement. Nice wiry jacket.

 GB (8,4)

1. Mahmoudi’s Stellanera High Society. 20 mth old black who was a comfortable winner in this class for me. I thought her most promising. She is a lovely type and so good to go over but just needs to be a little more co-operative when showing her bite, which is correct! Well balanced with muscular neck of medium length, short back with level topline, good length to ribcage which is well rounded and of correct depth, short broad loin and tail good for both set and carriage. Well proportioned, feminine head with parallel planes, lovely eye, ears of correct set and strong muzzle. Soundly constructed, standing with good breadth in front and correct clearance and moved out freely with excellent carriage. Nice wiry jacket with good undercoat.

2. Redfern’s Eimahans Leap of Faith. 20 mth old black and another with plenty to like. Feminine all through with moderate length of neck, straight back, good length to ribcage but not quite spring of rib of winner, short muscular loin and although her tail is set on well I would like to see a little more dog behind the tail. Well proportioned head with parallel planes, slight stop, eye of good colour, ears of correct set, plenty of strength to muzzle and scissor bite. Moving pretty well all through but not quite the drive of 1. Good coat texture. Well handled.

3. Greenwood’s Carisco Return Amber to Petmon

LB (4,2)

1. Broome’s Evingbriar Scotch Thistle. Another class where two quite different dogs challenged. My choice as winner was this 3 yr old black. She appealed for type and balance and is well boned throughout. Moderate length to her nicely arched neck, short back with pretty good topline, well rounded ribs which are carried well back, short broad loin and thick tail of good set but carriage not quite ideal. Quality head and expression with fair width to skull which is proportionate in length to that of muzzle, good planes, slight stop, very nice eye and ear, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Good angles front and rear and chest of good breadth with sufficient clearance. Purposeful action with excellent carriage. Quality coat.

2. Redfern’s Whistlynarra Whistling Wind of the Glen. 4 yr old black who also presented a pleasing outline with muscular neck of medium length, proportionately short from withers to set on of tail with level topline, excellent ribbing, short broad loin and tail good for both set and carriage. Nicely proportioned head with good planes, slight stop, eye not quite that of winner, ears of correct set, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Good forechest but a tad wider in front and with just enough clearance. Moving well when viewed from behind but could not match winner on the go around. Pleasing texture to jacket. 

 OB (4,1)

1. Kirk Gellatly’s Millingford Stargazer. An interesting class which saw 3 quite different bitches compete all of which had lots to like. My winner was this 4 yr old black who really did appeal. She scored for type and presented a beautifully balanced outline with nicely arched neck of moderate length, short back with firm topline, well rounded ribs which extend well back, deep brisket with correct clearance, short muscular loin and tail good for length, set and carriage. Feminine headpiece with good skull to muzzle proportions, parallel planes, correct stop, almond-shaped eyes which are dark enough, ears of correct set, strong muzzle and excellent dentition. Sloping shoulders with forechest well in front, well boned forelegs, good clearance and firm, muscular hindquarters with nice strong hocks. Moving freely and with purpose, driving from the rear and using herself at all times. Wiry jacket with soft dense undercoat. My choice for Best Bitch and Best in Show.

2. Rutherford’s Carisco Cendal Creme. This 5 yr old wheaten girl was another who greatly appealed and was lovely to go over. Feminine all through, she is well off for bone and substance. Balanced in outline with moderate length of neck, level topline, deep brisket, first class ribbing, short broad loin and thick tail good for both set and carriage with shelf behind. Attractive, well proportioned head with keen expression; slight stop, parallel planes, almond-shaped eyes of good set, strong muzzle and scissor bite. Nicely angulated fore and aft, standing with good breadth in front, elbows held close to the body, pleasing clearance and muscular rear with nice turn of stifle. Moving so well on the go around but just a fraction wider when going away. Excellent texture to jacket and very well handled. Reserve Best Bitch & Reserve Best in Show
