Reserve CC Sothern BT 2012
Judge: Bill Gray
Rich red dog up to size but easily spanned, ultra typical head which is a feature of this kennel. Liked everything about him, my idea of a Border.
Reserve CC -- Border Union 2012
Judge: Kate Walton.
From a kennel renowned for sturdy well muscled workmanlike stock,. I admired his thick coat and his many typical features and he didn’t disappoint. Difficult to fault and pushed hard for the top-spot. Reserve CC.
Wattie returned to the show ring in summer 2016, winning:
1st Open Dog & Reserve CC; SKC (may)
Judge: Simon Jackson.
Everybody knows this kennel is known for their “old fashioned” Border Terrier which I enjoy immensely. Fabulous head, wonderful intelligent expression, beautifully made, thick hard double full coat with thick loose pelt, as it should be. Nice to see a Border Terrier shown properly. Very happy to award him Reserve Dog CC – very close to the CC.
2nd Open Dog Southern BT Champ.
Judge: Prof Steve Dean.
Close up. Quality, heavier set dog. Very well muscled and fit, plenty of bone, good head with neat ears, well made throughout. Typical coat and pelt. Has a good top-line but being shown is not his favoured adventure. Moved OK.
1st Open Dog Blackpool
Judge: Trudi Baird.
Red in lovely full coat, very good head, he has an excellent length of body with ribs right back giving a lovely balanced outline, excellent angles front and rear, moved well to take this class, in the challenge he lost some of his sparkle.
8 year old red grizzle in super harsh coat,with an exceptionally strong otter like head and good bite. Good lay back of shoulder,super overall outline,moved out well for and after. Turned out well and handled well.
