Record for Manchester Terrier
AT THE City of Birmingham ch show the Manchester Terrier bitch, Ch Gloryline Margaret Tudor with Shemal Aireworth won her 16th CC to take the Bitch Breed Record.
All 16 CCs were awarded by different judges and she is one of the few Manchester Terriers to be placed in the Terrier Group having won Group 4 at Southern Counties in 2007. She was Best in Show at the Club Championship Show in 2005 and was Top Manchester Terrier that year and was Best of Breed at Crufts in 2005 and 2007.
Her sire is Ch Brookstream Beamish who was bred and owned by Nigel & Lesley Norris. He actually took the breed record by winning his 23rd CC at SKC in 2006.
Sadly 'Beamish' passed away earlier this year, but it was poignant that his daughter, Madge, won the Bitch CC and Best of Breed on the day he gained the Breed Record in Scotland. Nigel and Lesley Norris were also ring-side at Birmingham to see his daughter, Madge, gain the Bitch CC Record.
