OB: 1, Oxley's Ch Digelsa Double Entendre, certainly the best Manchester Terrier I have seen for some years,
her overall quality in all departments screams out at you, add to that her expression, coat, colour, condition & movement par excellence
& you have the finished article. No wonder then that she is knocking at the door of the breed record and picking up hugely deserved accolades.
In my opinion she is BOB by some margin & an excellent ambassador for the breed. CC & BOB.

          At 12 months old Roxy crashed into
           the greenhouse  feet first, we were
          very lucky. The emergency Vet  was
          brilliant and with micro surgery, you
             can hardly see the scars.

At the Yorkshire Sporting Terrier  open show in Feb 2008,  Roxy went  "Best In Show"

That qualified her for the National Terrier "Dog of the Year" finals at their Championship show in April 2009

Roxy went on to beat the  "Best of the Best"  to win the final, a great honour for us and the breed too




It was a pleasure and honour indeed to be the �secret judge� for this innovative and prestigious event.


I had before me a selection of quality specimens, which goes to prove that terrier fanciers up and down the country are using there knowledge and expertise in breeding healthy, typical stock which will be a credit to the world of dogs in particular and to society in general.


1st Oxley�s CH DIGELSA DOUBLE ENTENDRE JW Sh CM�.Lovely Manchester with an expression to die for and winning her 15th CC on the day. Typical and of top quality make & shape. Presented in hard condition as the finished article in coat of excellent colour, body and muscletone, she looked & felt as fit as a flea. As true as they come she never put a foot wrong and well deserved the accolade: Open Show Dog of the Year.


Roger Wright (Judge)


Roxy had some great success at Group level too in 2009.

At Three Counties Championship show in June 2009 Roxy went BOB under Miss Joanne Beales and the Terrier Group 4 under Mr Max King

At Bournemouth Championship show in August 2009 Roxy went BOB under Mrs Judy Averis and then Terrier Group 4 under Miss Jenny Miller

At City of Birmingham Championship show in September Roxy went one better

She went BOB under Mr Jack Watson and then Terrier Group 3 under Mrs Sue McCourt

              Roxy isn't just a "show dog", first and foremost she is our family  pet and lives in the house with us and the other dogs. She also visits my Mum regularly in her care home as unfortunately she is ill with Alzheimer's. Roxy brings a ray of light into the residents eyes when she walks in, they all like to stroke her and she loves it too.
