Mr.Matsubara, who is a member of our club, and I arrived at the
Heathrow Airport in the evening on Mar.6th . We rented a car and
left for Jaideled Airedales which is Maple's mother's home. It has
been ten months since I visited them last. Martin, Alaine, Mr.Matsubara
and I went to the pub together and enjoyed dinner and talking. Tomorrow
they are showing the female, Lucky(Jaideld Gypsy Lady Luck)at Crufts.
She is almost three years old and she has the same parents as Maple.
She is excellent and has had two CC already.
The judging of Airedale Terriers started at 9:00 am. Ninety entries
were supposed to be there,
but actually eighty entries were there like last year. Veteran class
of the male group was judged first, then Puppy class, then Junior
class, then Post graduate class, then Limit class, then Open class.
After that, Best Dog and Reserve Best Dog were selected from the
first placed dog in each classes except Puppy class. The female
group followed male group. Finally, Best of Breed was selected between
Best Dog and Best Bitch.
BOB was CH.GARLAND SWEET CAROLIN JOKYL(female) and BOS was BRANDED
JAZZ KING OF JOKYL. Jokyl Airedale Terriers won BOB for three years
in a row, besides, Jokyl also got BOS. They proved themselves to
be marvelous breeders again this year. Lucky was the same Open class
as Garland Sweet Carolin which was handled by Mary of Jokyl. Lucky
placed second. I was very happy to recognize fully again what a
beautiful Airedale Lucky was.
