Terrier Day at Crufts was on the second day of the show this year, on Friday 9th March, and Norfolks didn’t get into the ring until late, which put pressure on our specialist judge Mrs Dot Britten (Krisma). She had drawn a very good entry this year with 38 in the dog classes and only 4 absentees and 42 bitches with 8 absentees, so an equal division of sexes.
Winning his 2nd CC and Best of Breed was 15 month old red dog KINSRIDGE WITTY BANTER, bred and exhibited by Diane Jenkins. He is sired by Kinsridge Quo Vadis, who was never shown, but has useful breeding, being sired by Nord Ch Kinsridge Quids In out of Kinsridge Kerfuffle (Guestlings Fairbanks at Kinsridge (imp) – Foxhouse Femme Fatale at Kinsridge). His dam is well known, Ch Kinsridge Gung Ho, a daughter of Ch Kinsridge Top Gun and Foxhouse Funky Foxtrots to Kinsridge; she is already the dam of Ch Kinsridge Back Chat and CC winner Kinsridge Hey Ho.
The Dog RCC went to Jill Stevenson’s CH BRICKIN POT OF PICKLE who won a strong Open Dog class from 4 other champions. He won his 3rd CC at our Club Championship show last year, He is sired by Ch Watercroft In A Pickle (Strathinver Smart Enough – Watercroft Hot Love) and his dam is Jill’s Brickin Wild Ivy, by Ch Penmire Wild Bramble by Brickin out of Brickin Steal A Look (Brickin Smart Outlook – Brickin Stolen Glance).
Congratulations also go to Jackie Phillips for making up her black & tan bitch *MARCHDENS LOOK TO THE SKY FOR BLAKENS. This bitch was bred by Denise Horne, by Jackie’s Ch Blakens Pay Back (Ch Kinsridge Cash Back out of Blakens Party Girl); her dam is Pie In The Sky inherited by Denise from her mother who bred her by Tegwani Tarot Reader out of Golden Breeze, a daughter of Ch Krisma Crossfire. Her first CC was won last year at the Welsh Kennel Club from Mr Roger Thomas, and the 2nd from Mr Stuart Plane a week later at City of Birmingham. She has also won 3 RCCs in her short career, as she was born in August 2016, so just out of the junior classes now.
Another youngster was the RBCC winner in Ruth Gee’s WATERCROFT PINK FIZZ; she was born at the end of January last year, sired by Ch Strathinver Sea The Stars (Strathinver Smart Enough – Strathinver Reddy To Star) out of Watercroft Name Your Tipple, by Ch Kinsridge Cash Back ex Watercroft Top Tipple, a Ch Kinsridge Top Gun daughter. Ruth won two other classes from her Watercroft kennel, CALLING TIME in Junior Dog and TOP TOTTY in Post Graduate Bitch.
There were 9 puppies entered in Puppy Bitch which was won by Edwina Darnell’s JACQUIDON RAGS TO RICHES, and she went on to be Best Puppy; she is only the 9th Norfolk Terrier puppy that Edwina has bred. A red puppy born in July last year, she qualified for Crufts at Manchester in January this year. She is sired by Ch Kinsridge Cash Back out of black & tan Jacquidon Next Sensation, who is a daughter of Ch Belleville Seduction and Watercroft Cherry On Top, Edwina’s foundation bitch she acquired from Ruth Gee.
