WELKS has the reputation of being either scorching hot or cold and wet, and this year the latter was certainly the case – car parks were mud baths by all accounts and the halls were freezing.
Keeping the heat on in the Norfolk ring however was veteran terrier man, Albert Wight, whose judging very much followed recent results:
Dog CC and Best of Breed went to Di Jenkins’ KINSRIDGE WITTY BANTER, giving him that all important third ticket (previous CCs were at LKA under Andrew Gullick and Crufts under Dot Britten). He is by Kinsridge Quo Vadis, out of Ch Kinsridge Gung Ho. Once again, the Dog RCC went to last year’s leading dog, CH MARCHDENS MARK MY WORDS owned by Denise Horne, but handled by Jackie Phillips. He is sired by Moortop Delivery out of Lady Miss Cheif.
The results in the Bitches were a repeat of National Terrier, with the CC going to Jackie Phillips’ black & tan bitch CH MARCHDENS LOOK TO THE SKY FOR BLAKENS, her fifth CC. She was bred by Denise Horne, by Ch Blakens Pay Back out of Pie In The Sky (Tegwani Tarot Reader x Golden Fleece, a Ch Krisma Crossfire daughter).
Ruth Gee’s WATERCROFT PINK FIZZ secured yet another RCC. Her breeding is sire Ch Strathinver Sea The Stars, her dam is Watercroft Name Your Tipple (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back – Watercroft Top Tipple, by Ch Kinsridge Top Gun)
And Best Puppy was yet another repeat of National Terrier with Jill Stevenson’s BRICKIN JUST A PICKLE getting the nod once again. ‘Bruce’ is sired by Ch Brickin Pot of Pickle out of Brickin Simplicity (Ch Belleville Angello – Brickin Away We Go).
