THE SOUTHERN IRISH TERRIER SOCIETY OPEN SHOW IN CONJUNCTION WITH CHRISTCHURCH & NEW FOREST CS
JUNE 6TH 2007 - JUDGE MR PETER EVA
The Southern Irish Terrier Society Club Open Show ran in conjunction with the Christchurch & New Forest Open Show. the Irish club had bought green baseball caps,. suitably embroidered with an Irish Terrier head to get in the spirit of the day. The 'Irish' have the gift for making one welcome and I enjoyed my day with the dogs, the sunshine, the people and the hat!
Puppy Dog/Bitch (7) (4a) - Really super class of top quality puppies, all of them.
1st Seabridge's SUJONCLA SINTE GAESHAKE. Very promising youngster, firm, correct topline with laid back shoulders, straight in front with enough chest, bite, teeth, ears with good eye, colour, expression, moved well. Just beat on style a smashing bitch puppy. BP
2nd Bradleyh's MONTELLE SHE'S A LADY. Well handled, great forehead, straight front, reach of neck, head set on well with flat skull, correct foreface, good topline & tailset. One to like & will watch her progress.
3rd Batley's PENMIRE DINGLE DANNY.
Junior Dog/Bitch (6) (1a)
1st Bradley's BRILLIANT MR SIRIUS AT MONTELLE. All male & confident with it, great Irish character, super harsh wiry coat, dense & crisp on legs & foreface, good expression, dark eye, bite & teeth. Like all Irish dogs of all ages were in super clean condition, a credit to the breed, firm hard muscle, straight in body & limb. Needed a little space to find his rhythm, moving away. Very nice. RBD
