I was very pleased to be asked to judge Scottish Terriers and BIS for
this Club as I was a founder member and its first secretary.
I got even greater pleasure to see that the club was in fine form with
a hard working committee dedicated to putting on a first class show.
The refreshments were exceptional!
Unfortunately the overall quality of the entry was not high, particularly in the dog classes. The same faults cropped up time after time . Poorly angulated and loaded shoulders were the order of the day and many exhibits were overweight. Fronts were poor, many out at elbow with feet turning out. There was a distinct lack of drive on the move. On a positive note, heads were not too bad, clean skulls, balanced with the foreface and no light eyes. Very few dentition problems.

A very lovely bitch, beautifully presented and showing very well. Lovely head, super neck and shoulder. Moved with drive holding her topline very well. *BOB RBIS.*
It is always an honour to be asked to judge BIS. I went into the ring looking for something very special to beat my BOB Scottish Terrier. I found it!
The 13 month old WHWT Ash’s Hillcloud Drizzle. Wherever I put my hands on this bitch, I found exactly what I was looking for. She excels in breed type . Lovely head, darkest piercing eye, correct balance between skull and foreface. Correct ear placement. Super neck and shoulders well angulated and with a perfect lay back.. Level topline which she holds well on the move. Her hind action is a joy to watch. Must have the brightest of futures.
BPIS Scottish Terrier Tovey’s Trakside Flyingscotsman at Charmac met the WHWT Thomson’s Ashgate Miss Mona. For me on the day the Scottish Terrier had the edge and went BPIS.
