Terrier day was on Friday 28th April, the first of the ‘outside’ shows and our breed judge was Norwich specialist, Peter Bakewell. He drew an entry of 37 different dogs on paper. Actually appearing were 8 males, with none entered in the open dog class; but bitches were more plentiful as usual with 26 names in the catalogue but 11 of these were absent, so 15 appeared in the classes. Norfolks were first in the ring. It was cold and overcast with rain threatening, and exhibitors had set up inside the enormous shed to keep warm; bad luck, the judge decided otherwise so they all had to troop outside with their trolleys and cages to be judged in the outside ring which had rather long tufty grass which hid the dogs legs and made moving more difficult. The Norwich classes later were inside.
Best of Breed winning the Bitch CC was Andrew Gullick & Kate Tate’s JAEVA HELLS FIRE; this was her 2nd CC to add to the one at East of England in 2015 from Patsy Hollings. Her sire is Ch Jaeva Cufflink, but she is the 6th generation of Jaeva Hell-ish bitches going back from Ch Jaeva Hells Fury, to Jaeva Helfa Leather, then Ch Hell To Play at Jaeva, back to Jaeva Hell-Maker and finally to Ch Jaeva Hells Bells. They were of course all bred by Martin Phillips.
But it was a red letter day for Denise Horne, as her aunt, Jackie Phillips tidied up and piloted MARCHDENS MARK MY WORDS to his first ever CC. He has been on the brink on so many occasions, but this was a real breakthrough. One always remembers a very first CC from one’s own breeding. Her junior dog, born on 14th September 2015 is sired by Moortop Marks Delivery out of Lady Miss Cheif, who had been bred and owned by her late mother, Margaret Horne. Many congratulations to all connections. Beware, a repeat mating has produced some promising bitches.
Jill Stevenson was also winning her first RCC with her young dog BRICKIN POT OF PICKLE, he had been very successful at our Club show recently being Best Dog there, and did very well in puppy classes last year. He is sired by Ch Watercroft In A Pickle out of Brickin Wild Ivy – she is by Jill’s Ch Penmire Wild Bramble by Brickin out of Brickin Steal A Look. (Brickin Smart Outlook ex Brickin Stolen Glance).
The bitch Reserve CC was also a first for Cathy Thompson-Morgan’s black & tan ALLRIGHT BLACK BESS, whom she has imported from her breeder, Dr Frauke Hinsch; she was sired by the Finnish Ch Heilurihännän Angel Cake (by Fin Ch Jaeva Touch Of The Dutch ex Ch Jaeva Fallen Angel) out of Allright Black Pepper, by Ger Ch Allright Ali Baba (Elve Valkaria ex Ger Ch Allright Magic Pearl); Allright Black Pepper’s dam is Allright Black Cherry (Ch Belleville Smart Alec ex Swynford Black Pearl). Breeding is so international nowadays.
Actually ALLRIGHT BLACK BESS with Cathy had also been 3rd in the Terrier Group at Manchester earlier in January under Mr Mike Vickers.
Best Puppy was last week’s sensation, Andrew Gullick & Kate Tate’s JAEVA BLUE LAGOON, bred by Martin Phillips, she is by reimported Ch/Int Ch Jaeva Made In Gold out of Jaeva Miss Dynamite.
