NORFOLK TERRIER CLUB OF GB
SHOW SCENE 2011
L K A
This is the final show of the year held on 10th December at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, and the last opportunity for a dog to qualify for Crufts in 2012 and for pups born before 10th June to make their debut this year. There is very much an ‘end of term’ feeling and a chance to exchange Christmas cards and save expensive postage. Specialist breeder, Patsy Green (Wharfvalley) judged Norfolk Terriers; her choice for Best of Breed was Cathy Thompson-Morgan’s b&t dog CH BELLEVILLE BLACKLACE, winning his 2nd successive CC this year, but with a total now of 7 CCs. He is by SA Ch Macsnest Nik The Kaluha at Collaton (Imp) out of Belleville Lace Petticoat.
The bitch CC went to a new one from Jill Stevenson’s kennel, BRICKIN PARTY TIME, who had been a long suffering ‘model’ at the judging seminar in October but was enjoying herself today, she is by Rouletta Fameuse Le Smart out of Brickin Rumoured Affair.
RCC in dogs was Mary Atkinson’s dual CC winner MOORTOP NO CHOICE now a junior but this year’s Top Puppy, he is homebred by Wharfvalley Diamond Bright at Moortop out of Moortop Shandy Choice.
Jackie Phillips won the BRCC with her black & tan CH BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE, the top bitch of the year; quite an achievement to win this position in consecutive years with litter sisters. She and Ch Blakens Toffee Kisses are both by Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix.
CHRISTMAS OPEN SHOW
Jane Devereux judged this show on Sunday 4th December, held at Weedon Village Hall, which was quite tightly packed with some exhibitors having to set up in an adjacent room. The ring covered in green Astroturf gave a brave splash of colour and was a very good footing for the dogs. Best in Show and Best Bitch was CH JAEVA COMFORT AND JOY, repeating her win of a year ago, she is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Jaeva Picture Perfect, bred, owned and shown by Martin Phillips
Best Opposite Sex as Best Dog, Reserve Best In Show and also Best Puppy was another Martin Phillips bred youngster in JAEVA MADE IN GOLD; he was shown by one of his joint owners, Andrew Gullick, and is co-owned with Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Sue Wilding.

Reserve Best Dog was Mary Atkinson’s dual CC winner, MOORTOP NO CHOICE, who is by her Wharfvalley Diamond Bright of Moortop out of Moortop Shandy Choice. Reserve Best Bitch was Jackie Phillips with her black & tan CH BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE, (Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix). She is runner–up and Top Bitch of the Year.
MIDLAND COUNTIES NORFOLK TERRIER ASSOCIATION (MCNTA)
The second MCNTA Championship show was held on Sunday 6th November. At the last minute it was discovered that Tomlinsons Canine Centre had made a double booking on the same day, so another venue at Great Bridgeford Village Hall near Stafford was found at very short notice. Members of the committee rallied round to provide the catering and there was a very cosy atmosphere. There were 61 entries with only one dog and two bitches absent.
Mr Martin Phillips (Jaeva) was the judge and his choice for the Dog CC and Best In Show went to black & tan
CH BELLEVILLE BLACKLACE, winning his 6th CC in total, his first this year; shown and bred by Cathy Thompson-Morgan, he is by SA Ch Macsnest Nik The Kaluha at Collaton (imp) out of Belleville Lace Petticoat; he had won his first minor puppy class under Martin at WELKS in 2009.

Jane Devereux had a good day with her March born red bitch puppy, VICHEA EASTER LILY, winning the bitch RCC, her Minor Puppy Bitch class and then Best Puppy. She is by Shanandi Pot Noodle at Jaeva out of Vichea Rambling Rose.
MIDLAND COUNTIES CANINE SOCIETY
Added this year to the shows awarding CCs to Norfolks was Midland Counties Canine Society championship show which was held on Sunday 30th October, over a month since the last NTC Ch show. It is the third ch show to be held at the Staffordshire show ground, today in the annex of Bingley Hall, near Stafford.
Giving CC’s to Norfolks for the first time was our judge Mr Colin Powell; his choice for Best of Breed and the Dog CC was CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN owned by Diane Jenkins who could have almost walked to the show; he is by Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar out of Oktumi Elude, and this was his 7th CC and 4th BOB this year; he also proved his success at stud by siring both RCC winners.
The bitch CC was a 5th for CH BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE (by Ch Ton Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix), she is owned by Jackie Phillips, and she also has 3 BOBs. With two more shows to come these two are the leading dog and bitch on the points table this year.

His half sister, KINSRIDGE GUNG HO won the RCC in bitches, her second such award, she is owned and bred by Diane Jenkins out of Foxhouse Fancy Foxtrots to Kinsridge.
NORFOLK TERRIER CLUB OF GB
Two champions were made up on Sunday 25th November by the specialist Norfolk Terrier judge, Eileen Needham (Titanium). Held at Brackley Leisure Centre, there was plenty of room and a very happy atmosphere, with the green carpeting of the ring setting off the dogs beautifully and giving them easy footing. Show Manager, Andre Hess and the stewards, Geoff Buckley and Fiona Macartney and Cup Steward Jane Lloyd ensured that everything ran like clockwork. There was an excellent entry with very few absentees, in fact only one dog didn’t appear from an entry of 37 dogs, with 6 bitches absent from the 49 entered.
The Dog CC and Best of Breed and winner of a large Open Class was Elisabeth Matell’s CANTAB WINNING WAYS OF CRACKNOR (IMP), bred in Sweden by Kenneth & Marita Eliasson, by Swe/Ger Ch Easy Born To Be a Winner out of Swe Ch Cracknor ‘n’ Cantab Combined, who had been bred in England by Elisabeth before joining the Cantab kennel. His first CC was won last year at the Midland Counties Norfolk Terrier Association show judged by Dorothy Dorkins, and his second at Three Counties, with Best of Breed, in June this year from Cherry Howard. It has been a good year for this kennel as he is Elisabeth’s second champion; CH CRACKNOR CUSTOM MADE won her 3rd CC at National Terrier in April, while her half sister, CRACKNOR CROSS THE T’S is a grand champion in the USA winning Group 2 in the Terrier Group at Westminster in the spring.
There was great applause though for the very first champion owned and shown by Karen Hurrion, VALENTINES CHERRY CRUMBLE who got her final crowning CC at this show. Her first had been gained at Paignton in 2009 from Cherry Howard, and her 2nd last year at LKA from Ruth Corkhill; during her showing career she has also won 4 RCCs. Her sire is Ch Belleville Premonition and her dam, Tyark Treacle, has also bred the young junior bitch VILLASSA ALL GOLD who has won two RCCs this year and bears Karen’s new affix. Dog shows though have to compete with her first love of horse shows, dressage and eventing.
The dog RCC went to Cathy Thompson-Morgan’s black & tan CH BELLEVILLE BLACKLACE, back in the ring now his kennel mate has retired. He is by SA Ch Macsnest Nik The Kaluha at Collaton (imp) out of Belleville Lace Petticoat.
The bitch RCC went to another champion CH SETTRENDA SAUCY SOX, in the ownership of Terry and Linda Cooper from the first litter they bred by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Tegwani Scarlet Ribbons at Jaeva.
Mary Atkinson won the battle of the puppies when her MOORTOP NO CHOICE was judged to be Best Puppy. By Wharfvalley Diamond Bright at Moortop out of Moortop Shandy Choice, he already has won 2 CCs and this makes his 6th Best Puppy award.
This show was held less than a week after Richmond, on Friday 16th September at Newby Hall near Ripon in North Yorkshire, where another all-rounder judge was giving Challenge Certificates to Norfolks for the first time, Mr Jack Watson. He drew an entry of 15 dogs, 2 absent and 16 bitches, with 4 absent. He gave Best of Breed and her 3rd champion qualifying CC to JAEVA GOLDILOCKS, now 2 years 4 months old; she is in the ownership of Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Kate Tate and was another bred in the Jaeva kennel of Mr Martin Phillips, by the visiting Finnish dog, Ch/Fin Ch Heilurihännän From Me To You out of Jaeva Hotpants (see pedigrees). Her previous CCs were won at Bournemouth last year under Jeff Luscott and at earlier this month at City of Birmingham by Mr Nick Hammond, all with Best of Breed. She makes up a trio of champion bitches bred at Jaeva this year, with HELLS FURY and COMFORT AND JOY.
Great excitement and unexpected joy though for Andrea Smith who won her first ever CC and Best Puppy with her young puppy JAVIDEL MAY JUST HAVE TOO from the minor puppy class, he is by Ch Belleville Angello out of Stridview Bluebell for Javidel. There are now four CC winning puppies being shown, so the competition is very hot in junior and puppy classes. It is very difficult to win against the established kennels, so this was a great achievement.
The Dog RCC went to Jill Stevenson’s BRICKIN LOOK AWAY NOW, the ticket at Richmond, who won the older puppy dog class, (Brickin Smart Outlook x Brickin Skip Away).
But there was a welcome return to the ring winning the bitch RCC for BRYMARDEN COPPER KETTLE, who has two CC’s already to her name and is owned and was shown today by
Mrs Marilyn Claydon but bred by her daughter, Mrs Claydon-Atkinson, the bitch is by Brymarden Carbon Copy out of Brymarden Can Can.
Richmond Show for terriers was on Saturday 10th September; it is now is held at Loseley Park near Guildford where delicious ice cream is made from the milk of their herd of Jersey cows. There is now a much better layout under massive in-and-out tents in the middle of the showground, with plenty of space beside the rings for grooming and cages under cover, which was needed when the rain came down later. Benches were almost irrelevant and ignored as they were so far from the ringside. Norfolks were judged by Mr Tom Johnston, awarding Challenge Certificates to Norfolks for the first time; the 29 entries were rather down on last year with only 8 dogs, including 5 in a strong puppy class and 12 bitches present.
Best of Breed and winning her 4th CC (and 3rd BoB) was the latest champion, CH BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE owned and shown by Jackie Phillips, who presents all her dogs so beautifully. The bitch is by Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix.
At two shows in the last month the dog CC has been awarded to puppies, who were both competing in the puppy class, but today it was the turn of BRICKIN LOOK AWAY NOW, owned and home bred by Jill Stevenson from her Brickin Smart Outlook and Brickin Skip Away, he was also Best Puppy – his litter sister BRICKIN HOP AND SKIP won the bitch puppy class.
The RCC went to Mary Atkinson’s WHARFVALLEY DIAMOND BRIGHT AT MOORTOP, bred by Patsy Green, another dog by Brickin Smart Outlook but out of Wharfvalley Rose Petal. This dog won the American Points Trophy last year from wins at Open Shows, and is the sire of her puppy, dual CC winner MOORTOP NO CHOICE.
The RCC in bitches went to last week’s CC winner, JAEVA GOLDILOCKS, who was handled by Andrew Gullick, and bred by Martin Phillips - she is by Ch/Fin Ch Heilurihännän From MeTo You out of Jaeva Hotpants, and is now owned by Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Kate Tate.
CITY OF BIRMINGHAM
This show has now found a permanent home at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry, and Terrier day was Saturday 3rd September. All rings are under cover, the bright carpet cheered up our ring, and there was plenty of room too in the grooming area. It was an early start of 9am for Norfolks, judged by Mr Nick Hammond from Ireland, who was awarding CCs in the breed for the first time. He drew an entry of 49 dogs, with 19 dogs and 19 bitches present.
Winning her second CC and Best of Breed was Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Kate Tate’s JAEVA GOLDILOCKS, shown today by Andrew Gullick. This bitch by Ch/Fin Ch Heilurihännän From MeTo You out of Jaeva Hotpants, won her first CC and BoB last year at Bournemouth under Jeff Luscott.
A first CC and Best Puppy went to Cathy Thompson-Morgan’s 8 month old red dog from the Post Graduate class, BELLEVILLE BURNING PASSION, by her Ch Belleville Blacklace out of Ch Belleville Another Passion, he went on to win 2nd in the Puppy Group under the judge, Valerie Foss.
CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN owned and shown by Diane Jenkins won the RCC this time.
Karen Hurrion’s VILLASSA ALL GOLD won the bitch RCC (Ch Belleville Angello - Tyark Treacle) repeating her success at the Welsh Kennel Club.
THE SCOTTISH KENNEL CLUB
On 27th August no longer has tickets for Norfolks, and only 4 dogs from two kennels turned up in the three mixed sex classes for judging by Mr M Vickers. Mary Atkinson won Best Dog, Best of Breed and Best Puppy with MOORTOP NO CHOICE, and her WHARF-VALLEY DIAMOND BRIGHT AT MOORTOP was RBD.
WELSH KENNEL CLUB
Saturday 20th August was the date for this show held at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells in Powys. Due to rain earlier and rather soggy grass rings the judging took place indoors in the sheds; one slight difficulty was that the benches were in a different building to the ring, but exhibitors overcame this problem by setting up ‘camp’ near the ringside in the grooming area.
Mr David Winsley was awarding CC’s to Norfolk Terriers for the first time and made up the seventh champion of the year when Jackie Phillips’ black & tan BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE won her 3rd CC and was Best of Breed. She is a litter sister of last year’s top bitch Ch Blakens Toffee Kisses as they are both by Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of her Ch Vichea Pick And Mix. Her first CC was won at WELKS in April under Norma Newton, and her second last week at Bournemouth from Mrs Patricia Broome. She has also won 3 RCCs this year for good measure.
The dog CC went to Diane Jenkins and CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN, this was his 6th CC of the year with 8 in total – he is by Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar JW out of Oktumi Elude. The RCC went to Elisabeth Matell’s CANTAB WINNING WAYS OF CRACKNOR (Imp), who has two CCs so far, imported from Sweden where he was bred by Kenneth & Marita Eliasson, he is by Swe/Ger Ch Easy Born To Be a Winner out of Swe Ch Cracknor ‘N’ Cantab Combined.
The RCC in bitches was a first such award for Karen Hurrion’s VILLASSA ALL GOLD, winning from the Junior Bitch class, she is a half sister to Valentines Cherry Crumble, by Ch Belleville Angello out of Tyark Treacle who has been a prolific brood bitch - she was the only bitch amongst a litter of six puppies born in June last year.
Best Puppy was another win for the very successful young dog of Mary Atkinson’s MOORTOP NO CHOICE, a dual CC winner and he was also 3rd in the Pup of the Year competition later that day.
Norfolk Terriers were judged at Bournemouth Show on Sunday 13th August by specialist Mrs Patricia Broome, (Roxway) in the middle of the New Forest. Traffic on the way home can have long delays at Lyndhurst, but there is a beautiful way to avoid this bottleneck driving very carefully through the forest lanes among the wandering ponies and their foals.
Awarded Best of Breed, the Dog CC and Best Puppy was MOORTOP NO CHOICE, owned and exhibited by Mary Atkinson who had made the long journey from Yorkshire; this is the second time he has done the treble and this was his fourth Best Puppy award. He is by her Wharfvalley Diamond Bright at Moortop out of Moortop Shandy Choice.
The Bitch CC was also a second for Jackie Phillips with her b&t BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE, from her very successful litter by Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix, her sister Ch Blakens Toffee Kisses was made up last year.
RCC in dogs went to CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN shown by Diane Jenkins but he gave her a difficult time today. Rita Mitchell was delighted with her Open Class winner’s performance, RICHELL SHOW OFF who went on to win the Bitch RCC, she is by Ch Off The Cuff by Richell out of Richell Drama Queen.
Patsy Green also had a good day with three from her kennel winning their classes, WHARFVALLEY GOLD NUGGET, DIAMOND STAR and DIAMOND DIVA, all by Brickin Smart Outlook out of Wharfvalley Rose Petal – and it was their nephew who won BOB.
This show was held at Westpoint just outside Exeter on Monday 1st August on a very grey misty day, but terriers are judged in the dry echoing main hall. Our original judge, Paul Wilkinson, was ill and substitute judge, Mrs Patsy Hollings took over his entry. She confirmed her liking for the bitch to whom she had awarded Group 4 at East of England three weeks before, and gave Best of Breed and a 3rd qualifying CC to Martin Phillips’ young JAEVA COMFORT AND JOY, making up his 101st Jaeva champion, she is another bitch by his successful sire Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Jaeva Picture Perfect. She is our 6th champion so far this year. (Subject to confirmation by the Kennel Club)
The dog CC went to Diane Jenkins with CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN behaving perfectly today (by Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar ex Oktumi Elude). RCCs went to Jill Stevenson’s dog BRICKIN BETTER BE GOOD (Brickin Smart Outlook – Watercroft Idle Talk) and Jackie Phillips’ black & tan bitch BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE (Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva – Ch Vichea Pick And Mix). Best Puppy went to Karen Hurrion’s dog puppy, another black & tan, VILLASSA DONE DEAL by Ch Belleville Lord Angel out of Villassa Top Totty.
But many congratulations to Diane Jenkins, breeder and exhibitor of KINSRIDGE GUNG HO who on Monday was the winner of Pup Of The Year stakes class under Mrs Jane Lilley. She had also beaten the winning dog puppy that day and had to return to Exeter on Wednesday, a four hour journey each way, to contest the final against the winners of the other two days – and emerged triumphant. So Norfolks Terriers will be represented in this prestigious competition in January next year. Gung Ho is by Ch Kinsridge Top Gun out of Foxhouse Funky Foxtrots to Kinsridge.
This show in the lovely setting of Harewood House sadly does not have CCs any more, but 11 dogs and 7 bitches were present for Mr John Bunting to judge on 24th July. Best of Breed and Best Dog saw the return of Cathy Thompson-Morgan with CH BELLEVILLE BLACKLACE, (SA Ch Macsnest Nik the Kaluha at Collaton (imp) out of Belleville Lace Petticoat); and she also won the Reserve Best Bitch with BELLEVILLE SILK STOCKINGS (Ch Belleville Angello out of Ch Belleville Silk Petticoat).

They are also by Ch Belleville Angello but out of Watercroft Hot Stuff. Mary Atkinson’s MOORTOP NO CHOICE was Best Puppy, he is by Wharfvalley Diamond Bright at Moortop out of Moortop Shandy Choice.
EAST OF ENGLAND
Held at Peterborough, Mrs Nan Chadwick (Sandygrace) was awarding CCs to Norfolk Terriers for the first time on Sunday 10th July at East of England. Winning her 2nd CC and Best of Breed was Martin Phillips’ JAEVA COMFORT AND JOY by his prolific sire Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Jaeva Picture Perfect. She went on to be 4th in the Terrier Group later under judge, Patsy Hollings.
Making up her first champion of the year with some relief was Cathy Thompson-Morgan with BELLEVILLE LORD ANGEL, her black & tan dog by Ch Belleville Blacklace our of Belleville Another Angel; he has not been an easy dog to show as he has very determined ideas of his own. He is the 5th Norfolk Terrier champion of the year, but only the second dog. (Subject to confirmation by the Kennel Club.)
Jill Stevenson had an excellent day with three of her dogs polishing off both RCCs and Best Puppy awards. They were all by her very successful sire, Brickin Smart Outlook; BRICKIN BETTER BE GOOD from the Limit class was the DRCC, out of Watercroft Idle Talk. Her bitch puppy, BRICKIN HOP AND SKIP was the RBCC out of Brickin Skip Away but her litter brother BRICKIN LOOK AWAY NOW beat her to win Best Puppy. Pam Wellstead is also having a successful time showing a black & tan from this litter with BRICKIN TRUE GEM.
Mr Frank Cane drew an excellent entry at Windsor on Thursday 30th June, the first day of the show. We had a long wait as he had to judge both types of Fox Terriers before us, and we had a full classification, 4 puppy classes and also Yearling Dog or Bitch, Veteran and Good Citizen classes as well. This made us all very hungry for the traditional Norfolk strawberry picnic, organised by Elisabeth Matell, which took place after the judging, with Pimms and a celebration Jaeva cake to consume as well as all the other scrumptious goodies. Thank you to everyone who brought something for the feast.
It was a great day for Jane Devereux and her b/t VICHEA PICK POCKET, who won his first CC and Best of Breed; he is by Jaeva Pocket Rocket out of Vichea Rambling Rose.

No CCs were available here on Friday 24th June.

Diane’s 2 year old dog CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN was RCC, having dug his toes in during the challenge and refusing to move any more on the grass, although he behaved in his class – and you have to move to win. He later redeemed himself by winning the champion stakes, inside, under Mrs Jane Lilley.
The RCC in bitches went to Terry & Linda Cooper’s CH SETTRENDA SAUCY SOX who was in great bloom, she is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Tegwani Scarlet Ribbons for Jaeva.
The Centenary Show of Southern Counties was held at Newbury Showground on Saturday 4th June and the vastly improved layout was much appreciated by exhibitors, now using frame tents the old long march from bench to ringside is a thing of the past. The day warmed up so the shade in the tent was kinder to the dogs being judged today by Mrs Paula Heikkinen-Lehkonen from Finland. 14 dogs were present (2 absent) with the CC and Best of Breed going to Diane Jenkins’ CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN (Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar – Oktumi Elude) who went on to be 3rd in the Group later in the afternoon under Reiner Vuorinen.

THE SCOTTISH KENNEL CLUB

He drew an entry of 9 dogs and 12 bitches (2 absent).

Great cheers rang out when JAEVA HELLS FURY won her third CC and became the 100th champion owned or bred by Martin Phillips. What an achievement! He had success with Staffordshires originally but from his first champion made up in 1984 with Ch Jaeva Bisto Brown to this latest black & tan bitch (who is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Jaeva Helfa Leather), he has consistently been one of the leading breeders of Norfolk Terriers. Including in his champion tally he has also owned or bred many Norwich, 3 Soft-Coated Wheatens, a Cairn, a Sealyham, 2 St Bernards and a Flat-Coated Retriever.

Norfolks were second in the ring so exhibitors were able to follow proceeding on television screen provided by the WELKS committee which was very much appreciated. The judging of Norfolks by Mrs Norma Newton (Strathinver) was inside as rain was threatened.
She chose new dogs for the CCs and BP, all were black and tans. Best of Breed was Jackie Phillips’ bitch BLAKENS DOLLY MIXTURE, now allowed her moment in the spotlight following her very successful litter sister Ch Blakens Toffee Kisses’ career, both are by Ch Tom Tom at Jaeva out of Ch Vichea Pick And Mix.

The first of the regular shows, National Terrier is traditionally held on the first Saturday in April, this year on the 2nd at Bingley Hall, in the Staffordshire County Showground. Mrs Dot Britten (Krisma) was our specialist judge, and she gave Best of Breed to the Crufts crowned CH KINSRIDGE TOP GUN, owned and bred by Diane Jenkins, and he was also shortlisted in the group judging; he is by Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar out of Oktumi Elude. Diane also had a good day with her two young puppies winning both the minor puppy classes, her young bitch KINSRIDGE GUNG HO being Best Puppy, as suggested by her name she is by Ch Kinsridge Top Gun out of Foxhouse Funky Foxtrots to Kinsridge.
In a repeat of Crufts, the RCC went to the Junior Dog winner, Elisabeth Matell’s Swedish dog CANTAB WINNING WAYS OF CRACKNOR, (by Swe/Ger Ch Easy Born To Be A Winner out of Swe Ch Cracknor N Cantab Combined ). But her day was really made when her homebred CRACKNOR CUSTOM MADE won her third qualifying CC, bred from two much travelled Norfolks, US born Am Ch Cause A Comotion out of Am Ch Cracknor Copydex, who was UK born, had an American adventure, then returned home – they are half siblings, both out of the celebrated Coco, Ch Cracknor Cause Celebre. ‘Roxy’ recently had a litter and her previous CCs were won last year at Windsor under Diane Jenkins and at City of Birmingham under Swedish judge Mr Dan Ericsson in September.
The bitch RCC went to Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Kate Tate’s JAEVA HELLS FURY, who has 2 CCs from last year, she was bred by Martin Phillips by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Jaeva Helfa Leather.
The new season started off with a bang on Saturday 12th March at the NEC in Birmingham. All dogs have to qualify for Crufts, those who have been awarded Stud Book numbers and dogs placed 1st-3rd at championship shows the previous year. Our judge, Mr Geoff Corish, used to handle Norfolks for the Nanfan Kennel of Joy Taylor. He drew an entry of 85 dogs with 14 absentees. There was a long wait for exhibitors as they were third in the ring, and the Best of Breed and Bitch CC winner, CH SETTRENDA SAUCY SOX, only just made it to the group in time. No time for post judging photographs and congratulations, she, with her owners, Linda and Terry Cooper, had to rush off to the far distant Best in Show ring. Not very satisfactory, and bad planning on part of Crufts management, as the judge also had another breed to judge earlier.
This was CH SETTRENDA SAUCY SOX’S fourth CC following CCs won in 2010 at Midland Counties Norfolk Terrier Association’s first ch show from Dorothy Dorkins, Paignton from Marilyn Claydon and Three Counties from Elisabeth Matell. She is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Tegwani Scarlet Ribbons at Jaeva, and is from the first litter of Norfolks they have bred. Terry Cooper has just started being Acting Treasurer for the Norfolk Terrier Club of GB.
The Dog CC was the 3rd crowning CC at last for KINSRIDGE TOP GUN (subject to confirmation by the Kennel Club) bred and exhibited by Diane Jenkins, he has also 6 reserve CCs to his credit. ‘Henry’ is by the 2009 top winner Ch Kinsridge Top Dollar JW out of Oktumi Elude, and he was runner-up Top Dog last year. He won his previous CCs under Elisabeth Matell at Three Counties and under the Swedish judge Mr Dan Ericsson at City of Birmingham in September.
Elisabeth Matell owned both the RCC winners; her Swedish imported dog, CANTAB WINNING WAYS OF CRACKNOR by Swe/Ger Ch Easy Born To Be A Winner out of Swe Ch Cracknor N Cantab Combined was shown in the ring by his breeder, Kenneth Eliasson. This was only his second show in this country, having won the Dog CC at his first show. But Elisabeth handled the BRCC winner in CRACKNOR CUSTOM MADE in immaculate condition following a litter of puppies. She is by Am Ch Cause A Comotion out of Am Ch Cracknor Copydex. Her half sister, AM CH CRACKNOR CROSS THE T’S recently was 2nd in the Terrier Group at Westminster in Madison Square Garden, New York.
BEST PUPPY was between the exuberant dog, LOWMITA CINNAMON and the bitch puppy BRICKIN WAR DANCE, with the former getting the rosette. Owned and bred by Dorothy Dorkins and handled by Gina, he is by Lowmita Sweet William out of Nanfan Chick Pea.
We were delighted that the Norfolk Terrier Booth at Discover Dogs won 1st prize as Best Terrier booth and was Runner Up overall, Labradors being the winner – so many congratulations to Dorothy Dorkins and her teams of helpers and to Sally Willbie who contributed many of the photographs and the new photographs and material from Dorothy and Gina. Gina Dorkins also made a wonderful display for the Norfolk Terrier Stand and did a roaring trade.
At the end of 2010 there were eight Norfolk Terrier champions, four of each sex.
