Midland Counties 2014

OB(8) 1 Grogan’s Ir Ch Axelwood Karmin, the ultimate showgirl, such presence, style & aura. She immediately commands attention by her sheer arrogance. She is very ‘Yevot’ in type, build & refinement, & she is so very soundly made for such a small & dainty bitch. She is the essence of femininity. You cannot deny this bitch’s royal presence, & she insists upon your attention at all times. Taking her as a complete whole, I liked her sufficiently to give her 1st in a strong open class & award her the RCC, confident in the fact that she possesses the necessary attributes to become an English champion.

Judge Toy Group Specialist Mr.G.Davies


Welsh Kennel Club 2015

OB 7:1 1. Grogan’s Ir Ch Axelwood Karmin. Beautifully constructed little bitch, ideal size and shape.

Presented in full sparking coat and so attuned to her handler. Very feminine head with the darkest

of eyes. Moved proudly around the ring showing off her many charms. RCC.

Judge Breed Specialist Mrs.J.Wallhead (Merida)

  1. Grogan’s Irish Ch Axelwood Karmin, what a beauty queen, fabulous head and eye, correct cushioning (not too much nor too little)just the correct density of bone good reach of neck, level topline with correct tail set.  Just my typical Jap Chin, loved her and tried but could not  fault her today. BEST BITCH AND BEST IN SHOW.

Judge Breed Specialist Mrs.C.Rose (Rossyn)

“OB 1st Grogan’s Ir Ch Axelwood Karmin, this was my best class & most competitive today. The winner was excellent in every way. She was in beautiful condition , excellent head & beautiful expression. Excellent body and proportions , excellent tail. Moved with purpose and drive. I was happy to award her, gave her CC & ultimately she was my BOB.”



Leeds Dog Show UK 2016

Grogan’s Ir Ch Axelwood Karmin, pleasing overall type & movement. Coat in good order & held her outline well on the move.

Judge Brenda Banbury

Welsh Kennel Club August 2016

1 Grogan’s Ir Ch Axelwood Karmin, dainty & absolutely typical & shown in perfect coat & condition. Really pretty head & expression with fairly large, dark eye complete with look of astonishment. Good body & decent breadth of chest with level topline & high set, well carried tail. Moved soundly & with some style & though she was pushed hard by the precocious puppy she topped the bitch entry to take the CC. Her third – many congratulations

Judge Breed Specialist Mr Tom Mather (Barklots)
