I thoroughly enjoyed judging this lovely breed for the first time at this level. There were many exhibits in both sexes I would happily have signed a CC for and I was impressed by the overall quality of the breed. Needless to say, temperaments were excellent.

1st CH KINSRIDGE TOP TIP (MISS D JENKINS). My best puppy when I judged the breed in 2014 and she has really fulfilled her early promise. Feminine yet with some substance, she has a lovely head and expression. She handles really well on the table as she is cobby and compact and beautifully put together. She moves in a very sound and typical fashion. Needless to say, her harsh jacket was presented to best advantage. She is very special and she beat some lovely Norfolk Terriers to deservedly take the top spot today.
2nd PERRISBLU PRICILLA (MISS L DIXON). A classy looking, well balanced bitch. Grand head with dark keen eye. Good forehand with well laid shoulders and well ribbed body. Excellent topline and tailset. Good hind angulation gave her plenty of push on the move. Shown in top class coat and condition. Reserve CC.
