Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers
I am sure everyone who entered was disappointed that Liz Cartledge was unable to carry out this appointment and we all wish her a speedy recovery. Liz had certainly drawn a quality entry, which was my pleasure to judge. Remarkably there were very few absentees, and happily no ‘blonde’ Kerries’ present. Temperaments were as usual wonderful. It was good to see mostly good heads, and none long and narrow, and only a couple with dish faces. Dentition is still a concern, more so in older dogs, and I understand the frustration when teeth move around at a late stage. Good to see such good sportsmanship.
