Breed Notes, 20th July 2017
There is a lot of catching up to do on the shows due to the shock closing of Dog World so here goes.
 
The now well established back to back weekend saw well known Terrier man Les Aspin judging Border Union giving CCs in the breed for the first time with an entry of 23 dogs. He found his DCC & BOB in Ch Am Gr Ch Pennywise On The Road Again (Am Ch Derrydown Schooners Keeping Up Appearances ex Am Ch Pennywise Cut To The Chase) a mustard owned by Beverly Deacon & Judy Hill bred by the late Cathy Nelson, he also made the shortlist in the Group under Kay Aspin. RDCC went to Puddockswell Augustus Magnussen With Dryfevalley a pepper owned by Ali Cox Purcell and Angie Miller, bred by Ali. BCC was Ch Hawkesmill Jenny For Wilmit (Cloverwood Driving Force ex Ch. Aus Ch Jollygaze Hopeless Romantic For Hawkesmill) a pepper owned by Barbara Milton and bred by Graham and Margaret Russell. RBCC was Scottsbairn Marjorie Bruce a mustard owned and bred by Kjell and Eva Eriksson over from Sweden, with Best Puppy going to German Dandies Zampano at Puddockswell owned by Ali Cox Purcell, bred by Manfred and Monika Rosenbaum.
 
The following day the CDDTC held its Championship show held at Jedburgh Town Hall, the judge was Margaret McDonald Cross with an entry of 36 dogs she found the BCC &BIS in Ch Inzievar Gold Spark (Ch Inzievar Silver Gilt ex Inzievar Gold Dust) a mustard homebred by Frances Chapman King. RBCC was Barbara Milton's Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit. DCC went to Ch & Multi Ch Inzievar Wins Gold (Ch Vistca Vian of Hendell ex Inzievar Silver Charm) a mustard owned by Kjell and Eva Eriksson bred also by Frances. RDCC went to Beverly's and Judy's Ch Am Gr Ch Pennywise On The Road Again, with Best Puppy in Show MyDan'd Wonderful Red Dragon at Puddockswell owned by Ali Cox Purcell bred by Cathi Tower Chriscaden in America.
 
The following week was Blackpool Ch show with Alan Curry the judge who had 12 dogs present he awarded the BCC & BOB to Barbara Milton's Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit her breeding given before, with DCC was the aforementioned Ch Multi Ch Inzievar Wins Gold making it a very successful week for the Erikssons. RCCs went to Julie Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia and Tim & Gill Denham's Dentgate Fire Opal, with Cloverwood Yours Truly Best Puppy owned and bred by Glen Tinsley.
 
Onto Windsor in the beautiful setting of Home Park Windsor where Beverly Deacon was judging an entry of 34 dogs she awarded Ch Hawkesmill Jenny for Wilmit BCC & BOB owned and handled by Barbara Milton, Jenny went onto be shortlisted in the Group under Ann Ingram. To make it a family affair Jenny's litter brother Hawkesmill Jefferson at Etsill won his second CC he is owned by Barbara Kurg and bred by Graham & Margaret Russell. RCCs went to Bardolynns O'Leary owned by Emma Greenway & Margaret Russell and in bitches Louisa Henry's Trinzy Hair N'Graces who was also Best Puppy.
 
The DDTC held its Championship Show at Nantwich Civic Hall, sadly this will be the last time here due to the selfish and thoughtless acts of exhibitors allowing their dogs to foul the venue and grounds, venues are becoming very difficult to find and this Hall has welcomed Dog Clubs to use its facilities for well over 40 years, but it only takes the few to spoil it for the rest. Sue McCourt was our judge with an entry of 51 dogs DCC & BIS was Ch & Am Ch Pennywise On The Road Again owned by Beverly Deacon and Judy Hill and bred by the Late Cathy Nelson who I'm sure would have been thrilled at Willie's success. RDCC went to Julie Booth's Borderstone Kingman for Lannia, bred by Wendy Weatherstone. BCC was Cloverwood Ice and Fire a mustard by (Am Ch Kings Mtn The Governor ex Cloverwood Tilly Treasure) owned and bred by Glen Tinsley this gave her the title of champion, her first CC was won at National Terrier Club '17 judge Liz Cartledge, the second was Three Counties '17 judge Patsy Hollings. Glen also saw her Cloverwood Yours Truly a pepper win both the RBCC but also Best Puppy in Show. Best Veteran was Kirkhalin Mystic Prudence from Reidswire owned by Rob & Sue Bell.
 
On the same day East of England had classes for Dandies without CCs Meriel Taylor was down to judge the breed but had to withdraw due to health reasons so I don't know who did judge the breed, but the results were BD BOB & B Puppy Dryfevalley Johnny Fox a mustard owned by Mrs Hubbard and Angie Miller. BB was Dentgate Sugarberries at Thystine owned by Mrs Shepard with RBB Bonnybeck Chrystal Cascade at Crackerday.
 
Because there is so much show news this week I will leave the 3rd day of the Dandie Dinmont Festival until next week.
 
There is a new book out on the breed which is well worth investing in. It is called 'A Good Terrier According to Mr Dandie Dinmont' by Jonas Wiborg. Jonas is well known to older breeders and exhibitors - he would visit here from Sweden and handle Dandies for Mrs Jameson and Peggy Hulme. He has also judged Dandies here. Jonas has written 2 previous books on the breed but in Swedish, so it was brilliant that he has now brought this book out in English. His depth of knowledge of kennels and breeding and the detail he goes into is brilliant from the past and current breeders, it should be required reading for all Dandie enthusiasts.
