BP: Forrest & Scott. C. & C. Lacarneaveen the One and Only

I would like to thank the club and its members for inviting me to my first assignment in the UK and to all exhibitors for entering. There was a very nice entry and mostly of high quality dogs.  My overall impression is that most entries were of excellent type and temperament, they had very nice coat-quality and presentation. A few exceptions, otherwise nice mouth-pigmentation and correct bites.  My only concern is too many narrow fronts and briskets. The show was held in a super atmosphere and I was very well taken care of this National Terrier weekend by Wendy, Lyndia and my skilled ring steward Tony.

Many thanks to exhibitors for their entries. It’s a huge honour to judge at any show, but particularly so at Crufts. Thanks also to the Crufts committee for the invitation.

I had many quality animals to assess, & without doubt, some of the placings could easily change on another day.

All exhibits demonstrated good temperament, most had dark gums & dark roof of mouth, bites were mostly correct with a couple of exceptions.

A little variation in coats, with some coloured, but with incorrect texture.

I was delighted that my BOB winner went on to represent our breed so well by winning G3 under a very highly respected terrier man!

1st Miss C Clarke-O’neill Lemracdream Blue Ivy. Very smart on the move, with excellent side gait.

Crufts 2015 Judge Mr S WatsonP1030722-400-1

Shaun Watson writes “First I want to thank Crufts and its committee for inviting me to judge Kerry Blue Terriers at this famous and prestigious show and thank you to ALL the exhibitors who entered for the show; it was a privilege and honour. Over the last few years I have judged Kerrie Blue on four continents and many different countries, which mean I feel I can comment on the breed as a whole for which I have shown for over 25 years with many Champions, group and BIS and top in breed dogs. Certainly the breed is not as strong as my hey days when we would have 2 or 3 dogs and 2 or 3 bitches being shown at the same time all current Ch. show BIS and group winners, but I had a very good cross section of kerries with an excellent etry of 64 dogs entered. I think movement is generally a problem but that said I think that is true of all breeds, and as a FCI all breeds judge I see lots of different breeds, the other problems I felt there was to many tall females, some bigger than males and there are defiantly more coat problems, I don’t think all was genetics most I believe was from being blown dry with warm or hot air, this over time gives a harsher coat not soft as required and takes away from the shine and gloss needed, and the current trend around the world and seems also in the UK, a few are taking too much coat off the body, and the breed standard require plentiful coat, and where is the trimming and presentation skill in a short close coat. That said many was correct, I didn’t see any problem with mouths or coat colour, the dogs was presented in a professional and terrier way, they was clean and happy, temperaments of dogs and owners was correct and pleasing to see, there was very little of this running and speeding around the ring, again another of my pet hates, so I assume people was told about me and almost all walked. Judging started on time with no dramas and all made the ring, which was big well lit and enough space to stand and move. I was pleased to see after wards both CC winners had the same sire, and both RCC had the same sire, but different to CC winners, of the major awards three owners had never shown under ever and one had shown under me once, none had ever judged any of my dogs. For the people who don’t know me, I don’t really care for people friends or enemies when I judge I just look at the dogs, yes I have given CCs to friends and also to people who dislike me, I have given to famous dogs and dogs with their first big win, I like to sleep well and to be honest I do and one reason I just do my own thing and that’s that. There are a few other moans and good things to be said BUT I know this report will be considered too long and would not get posted so let’s go on to the dogs reports. Can I remind all that judging only matters at that time, at that show and what that judge thinks at that time, we ALL always take the best dog home?

Class 1728 VETERAN D Entries: 2 Absentees 1

1st 11194 MR S COOPER – CH/SWE CH ROLLICK’S FOOL FOR FAME (IMP SWE) SHCM LVCH BVCH. 10 years old very happy and correct temperament and seemed to enjoy his day, correct and ok for size, ears could be set and or used better, moved well for age, coat correct and as expected for age, shown in good body, weight and bone, there is no best veteran overall which for Crufts would have been nice to delare one,

Class 1729 PUPPY D Entries: 3 Absentees 0

1st 11230 MR R RAMSAY – TORUM’S CAIRO FRED. Very interesting male of 11 months, correct in height, excellent in substance and bone, well presented and handled, coat in excellent condition and trimmed with good length and correct type, and top shine and gloss, short level correct back, good top line, moved well for age, head developing well and of good length, well set and used ears, should become a CH.

2nd 11203 MR R M & S P EASTON & MACKAY – KEBULAK HEART OF STONE WITH WIDDRSHINS. 10 months male all in proportion, but could be more of him all over, should come with time and exercise, tail set and or carriage could be a little better, moved a little close behind, well-handled and present in clean and good condition, correct coat going the right way, nice top line.

3rd 11236 MS E & MR S SOMERS & COOPER – DOGAZZA’S SMOKING GUN. 10 months male top size for me. Could have more showmanship and terrier sprit, strong head for age, needs more drive behind but should come with age, exercise and time, good ears, strong neck.

Class 1730 JUNIOR D Entries: 6 Absentees 1

1st 11184 MESSRS D & I ANDERSON & WATT – EDBRIOS EXPLORER. Very impressed with this young male of 14 months, really my type and if continues to develop will be a top winner, excellent in height and bone, substance correct for age at present, trimmed well but as I told the owner one of a few with to little amount of coat, the reason was explained to me and I expect this to be more correct at the next shows, colour is correct for this age, texture and high quality of coat, stood like a CH and looked like not only he owned the ring but was looking around to see who would be second place, long lean head with enough muzzle, dark eye, wicked expression, well set and correct used and placed ears, strong neck, firm hard level top line, excellent length, strength and carriage of the tail which was well set and used to advantage, good angulation, moved and shown well with super character won the RCC today.

2nd 11198 MS C L DAVANI – KEBULAK LOVE GUN. 15 months excellent colour and changing well, correct type, texture and quality of coat, good shine, moved close behind, head of good length and depth, correct set and used ears, strong bone correct feet, enough depth and width of chest for age and developing along the correct way for the future.

3rd 11191 MRS E CARTER – KEBULAK FRENCH CONNECTION. 13 months correct for height and substance good bone, short level back, head of good length, dark eye, excellent well set and well used ears, must admit I really feel, if the ears are not set right it spoils the overall balance and impression of the head, coat type could be better.

Res 11234 MR R & MISS C ROSE & TRACEY – ARKAMA HIGHLANDER

Class 1731 POST GRAD D Entries: 5 Absentees 0 1st 11195 MR G & MRS A DALY – COMMANCHE CREEK. 18 months excellent for height which is something I always look for, yes I do have a thing about height but I have also had a taller CH myself, I would never put an inferior correct size over a superior tall male but if I can I will look more for the correct size for me, could be a little more mature in body , but this will come with time and is of the right type, long lean head, with strong muzzle, dark eye and well set, position and used ears excellent in temperament and shown well, happy dog.

2nd 11192 MISS C CLARKE-O’NEILL – LEMRACDREAM FIELD OF DREAMS IR 22 months top size for me, Maybe little heavy in skull, strong and deep mussel, super strong bone, correct frim level top line standing and on the move, movement could be little more positive,

3rd 11240 T SONNENSCHEIN – LOUGHBOROUGH SUITE LEROY [ATCAR01470DEU]. 22 months correct for height and size, nice head, ears could be set and used more to advantage, coat texture could be better, and could be a little more happier and terrier sprit, moved ok and well handled and presented.

Res 11232 MR A M RATHBONE – KEBULAK BLUE DEMON IN QARAQUL

Class 1732 LIMIT D Entries: 3 Absentees 1

1st 11202 MR S & MISS E T EARLE & KELLY – MICULADH EDGE OF GLORY AT DOLLAGH. 2 years correct height and size, a little heavy on the skull, dark eyes, not fully happy today and needs more go and terrier attitude and sprit, did not always use tail to advantage, which spoils the general overall balance, handled to advantage and made the handler work, good tail set and use but when used, correct coat and moved ok

2nd 11185 MR A BAINE – CEDAR THE SPANIARD AT STORMBLU. 3 years but a bit to heavy and masculine for me lacked enough elegance and refinement I would have liked, built very strong, showed and handled very well and presented to advantage which you would expect from the breeder/handler. Excellent coat colour but needs a a bit more coat, moved ok.

Class 1733 OPEN D Entries: 8 Absentees 2

1st 11244 MR J WEATHERHEAD – CH HALLSBLU FIBBER MAGEE. My type of Kerry, I like it when they walk in the ring like they own it and think they have already won, correct terrier attitude I want, and no aggression as he knew he was the best and had no need to prove it. Looked like a stallion you want from males and looked down his nose at all, long lean head and correct in skull proportions would like a little more mussel for overall balance but strong enough, dark eyes head trimmed to advantage and ears well set and used and correct, had the required for me wicked expression, strong well used neck, short level firm top line held on the move and standing, tail set to advantage and used to balance him overall and to make him look even shorter in back, excellent rear angulation, real light blue coat, which too many think is the only colour remember there are I think 52 shades of blue and all acceptable colour for a Kerry blue terrier, the coat was the right amount of length to be considered plentiful and allow trimming expertise to be shown, the texture was correct and the gloss and shine expected was there in abundance, I could see he could be a handful, but the experience and full control of his owner breeder controls this and used it to show of his evident terrier sprit and dominance. Not surprised after how much I like what I saw and found under the coat he won the CC and BOB. I stayed to watch him and the ever youthful looking Crufts Terrier group judge and was pleased to see him shortlisted in a very strong terrier group, which was won by an stunning built and handled Scottish Terrier who deservedly went on to BIS

2nd 11196 MS C L DAVANI – KEBULAK LADY KILLER. 2 years old top quality male trimmed and presented to advantage, handled expertly with the required terrier character and spirit, coat of right type and amount, trimmed to enhance and show of the dog, excellent texture and shine to the coat, strong top line correct and well used tail set, moved well

3rd 11215 MR H KVIVESEN – NORD CH SHYLOCH QOSMOS (ATC). Another top quality male 2.5 years old, presented perfectly and in super hard condition, good length of head, skull could be a little more refinded, dark eye, excellent set and used ears, used to advantage, correct type and presentation of coat and texture, moved well, I see I have given this dogs sire a group a few years ago and wish you the best with this one.

1st – clarifying – Very much my type size and shape, a real terrier who knew it, excellent coat for age with correct type and texture, too early for colour which is expected enough depth of chest, level top line , strong bone but still ultra-feminine good length of head with the required strength needed for a Kerry, dark eye, ears correct size, well set and used to give balance and correct look for the head, super long neck of correct length, excellent body type super top line and tail set which was carried correctly on the move, moved well for age should be one to watch for the future, should become a CH

Class 1737 JUNIOR B Entries: 4 Absentees 0

1st 11182 MESSRS D & I ANDERSON & WATT – KEBULAK PLAYING WITH FIRE. 14 months old super for size shape and height, almost no coat on the body which is something I have mentioned above, yes it makes the dog easier to shape, but for me it is not correct and takes away from one of the main features of the breed. I have just checked the catalogue and seen same owner as RCC dog, who I also mentioned about the coat, I hope they change their trimming style at least for me if and when I judge again, coat type could also be better, but cannot no remember if from genetics or coat preparation, but you have a few nice dogs so hope you can just continue to gain experience in our lovely breed.

2nd 11211 L HETHERINGTON – IRISBLU AIVEEN FOR NEWENT 12 months just out of puppy where I think she would have fared better, super shape and body type, nice long and lean head of good depth, ears could be set or used better for overall balance and look, nice coat type and texture needs also more body coat, well-handled and presented just needs more time to finish.

3rd 11190 MRS E CARTER – KEBULAK BELLY DANCER 23 months old too big for my tastes, excellent and in proportion head, super set and used ears, when used, coat type could be better, in this class I had a few bitches much to tall, bigger than the males, yes they might have looked feminine but for me to big, also some coats was to tight, woolly, and did not have the shine needed
