Thank you everyone for bringing your beautiful Norfolks for me to see. I was thrilled to get such a wonderful entry. I would also like to thank my Steward who was on his own and did a sterling job.

1 Harrison. Jacquidon Rich Tea. In super coat and presented beautifully. Compact body with good bone. Correct head and well placed ears. Great tail set, and moved soundly both ways.

2 Powell. Watercroft Brown Boots. Another looking in good coat and trim, great bone, and moving smartly. Short cobby body. Head proportions good.

MPD (4,3)

1 Thompson-Morgan. Belleville Hope Alert. A beautifully put together puppy. Full of himself but still showing me his lovely sound movement with correct tail set. Super topline with good reach of neck and well laid shoulder.

PD (2,1)

1 Smith, Javidel May you Never. Very smart young man in great body condition. Good bone and spring of rib. Correctly proportioned head, lovely dark almond eyes with such a lovely expression. He has a wonderful coat of correct texture and is groomed beautifully moving soundly with plenty of drive. Best Puppy.

JD (4,1)

1 Thompson-Morgan, Belleville Infamous Colin. A striking Norfolk who wagged his correctly carried tail the whole time. Great hindquarters that drive him round the ring with style. Well laid shoulders and solid top line. And a masculine expressive head and dark eyes. Harsh coat texture with just the right amount of undercoat. Res CC.

2 Gee. Watercroft Moon Dust Black and Tan in great coat, loved his head and expression. Showed and moved well.

PGD (3)

1 Thompson-Morgan Belleville Wordsmith. In super coat and trim moving soundly with good front and well angulated hind. Expressive head of correct proportions. With neat well placed ears.

2 Wren. Jaeva Strut Your Stuff. Dark red coat of lovely harsh texture. Loved his head and expression. And he showed himself off well. Preferred movement of 1st.

3 Harrison Jacquidon Rich Tea.

OD (4,1)

1 Thompson-Morgan Belleville Playmate. Now this is how a Norfolk should move! He is sound as a bell coming and going. Correctly angulated both front and rear. Driving well behind on strong hindquarters. Well placed shoulders and straight front. Great bone, spring of ribs, reach of neck and top line. He was in super coat with the correct texture coat trimmed to his advantage. His head is that of a true terrier, strong and masculine, and of the right proportions. Small well placed ears. He showed himself off really beautifully. And I was delighted to award him the CC. Unfortunately when competing for BOB. He was very unsettled after getting the smell of a bitch in season. So did not give his best performance.

2 Gee, Watercroft Chilli Bean. Short compact in glorious coat and beautifully groomed. Loved his super head and expression, tail set was spot on. And his shoulder placement neck and top line were great. Lovely spring of rib. Good bone. Showing all the time. Moving out well.
