2012 Club Open Show

Norwich Terrier Club Open Show

Sunday, 22nd. April 2012 
at Roade Village Hall, Northants.

Judge: Mr. David Winsley (Davmar) 

Above: Judge David Winsley being thanked by the 
Norwich Terrier Club President, Mr. Barry Day.

My thanks to the Committee for the invitation to judge at this friendly show and to the exhibitors for their entries. Though not a large entry it was full of quality. Thanks also to my efficient steward Gail. 

Generally I found the breed to be in a healthy position, size was fairly even and there were no health concerns from my point of view. Movement was good, mouths have improved, my only concern were that quite a number of dogs were getting a little long in loin. Temperaments were 100%.
