NORFOLK TERRIER CLUB OF GB CHRISTMAS OPEN SHOW
This was held at a new venue, which some found a little hard to find, at Tomlinsons Canine Centre in Markfield. Judge, Mrs Nan Chadwick (Sandygrace), had a good entry on paper of 78 dogs, but cold and fog reduced the entry to 48, with 17 dogs and 31 bitches actually present. Martin Phillips took Best In Show with his black & tan winner of the Puppy Class, TOM TOM AT JAEVA, who was bred by Mrs A Walton by Brickin Smart Outlook ex Killer Queen; Reserve Best in Show was another from his kennel, in the ownership of Andrew Gullick & Robert Oliver, JAEVA KISS ME HARDY, a son of Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake Jaeva Helfa Leather.

NORFOLK TERRIER CLUB OF GB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
It was great relief to be dry and indoors for our championship show held at Brackley Leisure Centre on Sunday 28th September, where there is plenty of room for exhibitors and the ringside, even if the lighting could be better.
Our specialist Judge was Mrs Cathy Thompson-Morgan (Belleville) and she repeated last years memorable win for Jackie Phillips by picking her black & tan
CH VICHEA PICK AND MIX for the Bitch CC and Best In Show; she was bred by Jane Devereux by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Vichea Piquet Player. Another black & tan won the Dog CC when Martin Phillipss young dog TOM TOM AT JAEVA was chosen from the Puppy Class he also won Best Puppy; He was bred by Mrs A Walton by Brickin Smart Outlook out of Killer Queen; he was expertly shown to beat his red kennel mate, newly arrived from Finland who was RDCC, FIN CH HEILURIHÄNNÄN FROM ME TO YOU (IMP), bred by Mr & Mrs Nieminen by Int & Fin/Est/Lux Ch Allright Smart Rupert out of Ch & Fin/Swe/Est Ch Rosara Love Me Do at Jaeva. Bryan Claydon won the Reserve Bitch CC with BRYMARDEN COPPER KETTLE the winner from the Novice Class, bred by his daughter by Brymarden Carbon Copy Brymarden Can Can.
Another day wallowing in mud for exhibitors we are a tough breed! On Sunday 14th September Mrs Marilyn Claydon (Brymarden) was awarding CCs for a second time, with the two major awards repeating the line up from the last two shows by going to CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL winning her 10th CC with Best of Breed, and CH BELLEVILLE PREMONITION on a run now with his 6th CC. KINSRIDGE TOP DOLLAR was the RCC and for the final time Best Puppy, his 9th such award as he is now a year old, while Jackie Phillips won the Bitch RCC with CH VICHEA PICK AND MIX.
This show on 6th September held at Loseley Park near Guildford was memorable for the rain, mud, quagmire and swampy conditions everywhere. It was a nightmare for parking, with a water filled ditch to negotiate with trolleys just by the entrance to the show, which got deeper by the hour; the ground took a hammering from continuous rain on Friday, and off and mostly on during our Saturday. We were packed tight in the wet weather tent by the benching, the ring was half under water too as it seeped in from outside and made it difficult for the first time judge Mr Barry Day to see movement of the dogs who were hopping around trying to keep their feet dry not so bad for the exhibitors, they kept their gumboots on in the ring. The major awards once again went to CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL with her 9th CC and Best of Breed, and CH BELLEVILLE PREMONITION, gaining his 5th CC, but he was run very close by Rita Mitchell and RICHELL CONTRABAND JW, this was now his 5th RCC, he is by Ch Ruffnor Secret Tipple out of Ch Richell Fire Opal. Jill Stevensons BRICKIN ONE FOR THE POT repeated her RCC in Bitches, but this time it was the turn of Cathy Thompson-Morgans BELLEVILLE ROLL THE DICE to win Best Puppy (Ch Belleville Thunder Struck Belleville Tumbling Dice.)
CITY OF BIRMINGHAM
A week earlier on Saturday 30th August was Terrier Day at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry with all-rounder Mr Jack Watson giving CCs to Norfolks for the first time. Back in the cow sheds again, where the drains have to be avoided, he chose CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL for his Best of Breed, with CH BELLEVILLE PREMONITION gaining the Dog CC. Details of these two dogs is given below. The Dog RCC was a second such award for Mr John Mitchells ROXWAY DIRECT LINE, bred by Tricia Broom from Penorth Storyline at Roxway out of Roxway Quickstep. 2nd in Open Bitch to Angel and winning her first RCC was Jill Stevensons BRICKIN ONE FOR THE POT by Ch Allright Magic Trapper out of Ch Sandygrace Pot O Gold at Brickin.

His Best of Breed and winning her 7th CC of the year was Mrs Beatrice Phillips and Mrs Kate Tates CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL, who was bred by Martin Phillips and is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Merauder Tik Tak.

Mr Frank Cane judged the breed in the New Forest, where the weather held up under threatening skies for the classes to be completed outside. It was the turn of Jackie Phillips CH VICHEA PICK AND MIX to be Best of Breed, after winning her 5th Bitch CC; bred by Jane Devereux, she is by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Vichea Piquet Player; CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL after a great run had to be content today with the RCC.

The Reserve CC went to another Yorkshire exhibitor, Patsy Green and Wharfvalley Kir Royale. Best Puppy for the sixth time was KINSRIDGE TOP DOLLAR he will be one year old on 9th September.
A new date and venue for Paignton, which has now moved to early August from its July fixture, Tuesday 4th for Norfolks and held at Westpoint, a permanent exhibition centre near Exeter. With heavy rain this was a bonus, as parking was on hard standing with smooth tarmac between blocks of parked cars and beside the trade stands; some of the halls were used for wet weather facilities and in-and-out tents for the rest, although the grass was slippery and rather long, it was a great improvement on Creally Park conditions.
Mr Maurice Marshall judged the Norfolks and the Jaeva team was in good form, winning all their classes with four entries, including Best of Breed and the Bitch CC with CH JAEVA FALLEN ANGEL jointly owned by Beatrice Phillips & Kate Tate, her sixth CC this year; (Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake Merauder Tik Tak).

He drew a good entry for this show with 47 entries with 13 absent. Cathy Thompson-Morgan had a good day winning the Bitch CC and Best of Breed with BELLEVILLE LUCKY DICE (by Ch Brickin Held To Ransom out of Belleville Tumbling Dice) her first CC, and also RCC in dogs with BELLEVILLE PREMONITION.

Three Counties has the splendid in-and-out tents, but luckily the weather held for our dogs to be judged outside. The Jaeva kennel won both CCs, making the 4th champion of the year when the Martin Phillipss bred JAEVA HOLY MOSES (SA Ch Macsnest Nik The Kaluha at Collaton x Jaeva Bit-Of-A-Bee) won his 3rd CC from the Open Class, he is owned now by Mrs Beatrice Phillips and shown by his co-owner Andrew Gullick.

SOUTHERN COUNTIES. The scene switched to Newburys permanent showground on Saturday 30th June, where Bill Browne-Cole was judging our breed.

It was a memorable day for Jackie Phillips and Jane Devereux when Jackie made up her first champion in black & tan VICHEA PICK AND MIX, who was also Best of Breed; she is also the first champion bred by Jane Devereux, by Ch Jaeva For Petes Sake out of Vichea Piquet Player; she had been Best in Show at the Jubilee Norfolk Championship Show under David Saltmarsh and her second ticket had been at LKA from Andrew Gullick.

WELKS on Friday 25th April had very nervous weather, and the organisers decided the ground was too wet underfoot outside, so we were judged by Mr Bryan Claydon in the spacious Hall 3 on blue carpet. Following winning CCs at National Terrier and our Jubilee Ch Club Show, AM CH CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION lived up to his name by winning his 3rd crowning challenge certificate with Best of Breed to give him his English title to go with his American one; later in the afternoon, handled by Peter Green he was 2nd in the Terrier Group under Judge Mr Bryn Cadogan. Dickie is the first Norfolk to do this feat since Ch/Am Ch Daffran Dusty ie winning his American title before his English one, although several dogs have gone to further glory in the showrings of America from England. His details are below.

Crufts is the show where all dogs have to qualify to enter, either by winning a Stud Book number that qualifies a dog for life, or by having been placed at a championship show the previous year. Our judge this year was Mr Brian Baxter and he drew an entry of 98 dogs with 23 absentees; judging starting at 8.30 in the morning which was a very early start for supporters as well as exhibitors. It was also the turn of the Terrier Group to be on the final day, Sunday 9th March when the crowds are the thickest, which makes for a very long tiring day.
Congratulations go to Cathy Thompson-Morgan who had a very good day winning the Dog CC and Best of Breed with CH BELLEVILLE RUMOUR NOTHING (Jalaska Warrior for Belleville x Ch B Sweet Nothings), his fourth CC, plus the reserve Bitch CC with CH BELLEVILLE SWEETHEART (Ch B Smart Alec Ch B Sweet Cracker).
