On Saturday 22nd April, The Norfolk Terrier Club of Great Britain held their Spring Open Show following the AGM for all members earlier in the morning. Judging the breed was Terrier specialist Mr Bob Blackley. He drew a good entry of 18 dogs, with 2 absent, but there were 41 bitches with 9 missing from the show.
Making a dramatic appearance in the ring as a puppy with little previous experience was Andrew Gullick and Kate Tate’s JAEVA BLUE LAGOON, at 11 months old this black and tan young bitch swept the board at her first major show, winning first the puppy bitch class, then Best Bitch, followed by Best In Show, so automatically became Best Puppy and Best Black and Tan. What a day for the Jaeva connections. Bred by Martin Phillips, she is sired by re-imported Ch/Int Ch Jaeva Made In Gold out of Jaeva Miss Dynamite. Actually the names should have been reversed as it was the daughter who made such an explosion onto the scene. Jaeva Miss Dynamite is by Ch Kinsridge Cash Back out of Jaeva Pardon Me, a Jaeva Pocket Rocket daughter from the Swedish imported bitch, Jiffy Future Classic.
Runner up to her, as Reserve Best In Show, 2nd in the Puppy Bitch Class and Reserve Best Bitch was Ruth Gee’s WATERCROFT SUZIE’Q, the result of a successful union between Ch Kinsridge Cash Back and Ch Watercroft Top Of The Pops. She had been Best Puppy recently at National Terrier.
At the head of the dog line-up and Best Opposite Sex was Jill Stevenson’s junior winner, BRICKIN POT OF PICKLE, by Ch Watercroft In A Pickle out of Brickin Wild Ivy, a Ch Penmire Wild Bramble by Brickin daughter out of Brickin Steal A Look (Brickin Smart Outlook – Brickin Stolen Glance).
Reserve Best Dog was Mary Atkinson’s CHARLIE BLAKE AT MOORTOP, who was bred by Mr P Blakey, sired by Mary’s Blakens Sugar Candy Dips out of Sheltrice Blakey’s Molly, a daughter by Mary’s Wharfvalley Diamond Bright at Moortop ex Sheltrice Magic Moment.
Patsy Green brought out WHARFVALLEY DIAMOND DIVA to be Best Veteran, they are by Brickin Smart Outlook out of Wharfvalley Rose Petal; the other diamond in the litter, the brother, Ch Wharfvalley Diamond Star had been left at home today.
