Show Dog Judges Profiles


, Mr R (dick) Lincolnshire,




Dick Terry of Virgloshimee shares this affix with his wife Sue (see below). He started showing Cavaliers in 1972 and they now own Cavaliers, Löwchens & Papillons. Terry was a founder member of the Southern Cavalier Club. He served on the committee as Show manager for many years and received the great honour of becoming an Honorary Life Member before he moved to the North of England. He then became a committee member of the Northern Cavalier Society and has been the Chairman of this Society for the last 5 years. Terry has judged the breed at Championship Level since 1991, having judged in America Sweden, Norway, and France. Dick is passed to judge the Toy Group in the UK and has already judged it at Birmingham National Championship Show. Awards Challenge Certificates in: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Chihuahuah (Long Coat), Chinese Crested Dog, English Toy Terrier, Löwchen, Miniature Pinscher, Papillon, Pug & Yorkshire Terrier. In Löwchens (Shimeesha) his wife does the breeding, and Terry held the post of Secretary of the Löwchen Club for many years. He has had the top honours of judging the Löwchen Club Championship Show and Crufts. He has judged the breed in Norway, and twice the Club Championship show in Sweden. This is a breed close to his heart. The other big part of his life is East of England Championship Show of which he is the Show Manager - a huge job that keeps him busy for a part of the year around July helping to organize the three-day show. Last. but not least, he is the toy representative to the Committee of Bournemouth Championship Show serving for quite a while as Chief Steward.
