Dog World Kerry Blue Terrier Breed Notes – published 20 May 2016
WE HAD a lovely day today at the National, although the day started off wet, it soon brightened up into a glorious day. Our breed was first in the ring, although due to an accident on the motorway the judging was delayed by a half an hour. Only one small grumble, why were the terriers put at both ends of the hall, to see friends in other terrier breeds was not that easy.
Geoff Corish handled the BOB and also won G4.
The results were as follows. DCC and BOB went to Dr R Young’s Ch Kebulak Lady Killer (Multi Ch K Born To Tease ex K Sticky And Sweet), bred by Cara Davani. RDCC was Mr R Ramsay’s Torum’s Cairo Fred (Ch Lemracdream The Navigator ex T Dallas Rose), bred by owner.
BCC was Ms C Walters Kebulak Queen Of Hearts at Kamaghan (Kebulak Only the Brave ex Ch Kebulak Striptease), bred by A Potts. I believe this is the second CC for Cherie with this bitch so hopefully it won’t be long before she gets her crown. RBCC was Mrs R and Mr P Ensell’s Nemiah Shades Of Grey (Ch Lemracdream The Navigator ex Ch N Born Of An Angel), bred by owners. BP was Ms C Davani’s Kebulak Wear My Kiss (Ch Kebulak Lady Killer ex Kebulak Kissalicious), bred by owner.
Joanna Jones also had a good day with her Kerry Arkama Harmony Miss D’Arcy winning VHC in the Good Citizen class and also second in her breed class. It is good to see a Kerry doing well in the Good Citizen class as not many terriers take part in this scheme. Joanna has also tried agility with Darcy and has really enjoyed it. So you Kerry owners out there have other exciting things to do with your dogs as well as showing them.
There was a get-together after the judging with many of the exhibitors contributing to the table, it was lovely to see some of the newcomers starting to join in and they were made welcome by the more experienced exhibitors. It is good that the clubs can work together to encourage new people to show, we have to try to expand our numbers, but unless we work at it our numbers will keep dropping. We have to promote the advantages of the social aspects, and the get-togethers we have had at the last couple of shows does encourage this, so I hope that it keeps going. Our condolences to Sue and Les Peacock on the loss of their daughter. It is always a hard time, but it was nice to see Les at the show. It was good to have a catch up on the news, and find out who is expecting puppies. So onwards and upwards. Next week I will publish the judges who I know for the rest of the year.
