The English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) Club held its 80th Anniversary Championship breed show on November the 3rd at Balsall Common Coventry. The show attracted an entry of 76 dogs with 113 entries which is way above the average entry of 54 for this show in particular and 38 for championship shows in general. Our judges was Mr Derfel Owen (Sirfon) a respected and experienced breed specialist who started his show career as a youngster in the ETT community. Our Specials Judge Master Ryan Ross (Karminy) is at the other end of the scale and this youngster is embarking on the same judging journey as Derfel. The ETT Club is fortunate to have younger enthusiastic members who are willing to be mentored by willing and highly experienced older members.  Junior Handling was judged in the lunch break by Mr Graeme Dixon.

This shows was the clubs final show in its celebration year and typically everyone enjoyed the friendly, supportive and sporting atmosphere. The day was rounded off with some bubbly and cake and our recently appointed Patron Shirley Ellis-Jones was in attendance and performed the cutting of the cake assisted by Derfel Owen. Shirley and Ted Ellis-Jones are life members of the club with many years of service so it was a delight to be able to renew old friendships after their recent absence. 

The exhibitors commented on how smoothly the show ran and in particular the high quality of the catering. Johnny Richardson produced some a CDs of his own music which were raffled raising £100 for club fund in addition to the usual raffle.

The final word should go to the members so here are some random genuine comments overheard and noted. : –
“it’s a lovely atmosphere isn’t it?’  ‘ Yes, and has been for the last 3 club shows.
“How are you feeling health wise these days?’ ‘Well, sort of dead, but with breathing and movement’.
‘The only thing this show lacks is some Avocado’
‘ It’s the one between my husband’s legs’
‘ No, I don’t know what’s been left in the gents lavatory, but I hope it isn’t something that’s gonna involve flushing the loo!’
‘I’ve been asked to torment you. No, sorry that’s not the word. Mentor you, that’s it mentor. Although it may feel like one and the same thing’
‘That dog looks a really masculine dog and the bitch very feminine ‘ ‘ Yes, well that would be the purpose of the exercise’.
Comment to the judge ‘How was your lunch?’ his reply ‘Same as yours but in a different room’.  

Such fun. Patricia Newton


To The Officers and Committee,
Congratulations to you all for the most excellent show last Saurday.
We were so pleased that we could attend, the atmosphere was what it should be, so much so that we hope the be at the next one.
Having in the past catered at many shows I appreciate the hard work put in by those in the kitchen to poduce quality meals and thank you for our lunch.
It was great meeting up once again with familiar faces and sharing stories of yesteryear.
I only hope that this letter of appreciation of all the hard work you all put in makes you realise that the effort was worth while.
Give yourselves a big pat on the back.
Best wishes for the future.
