Midland C.T.C. Cairn Day 2011

15th October 2011

Held at Hasland Village Hall, Hasland, Derbyshire.


This years MCTC Cairn Day was again very well supported by a good mixture of Pet & Show Cairns,

making it yet another very successful and enjoyable day.




As usual the day started with our trimmers Dawn Inett, Julie Petts, Alison Wragg & Maud Hawkes,

who gave practical trimming tips and advice on grooming Cairns for both pet and show Cairn owners  


This was followed by

Monica & Brenda’s Fun Classes.

As last year Monica was the main judge. (She’s stricter than me and stands no nonsense from Naughty Cairns or owners!)


Class one – Musical Mats

Now called “whistle mats”  (A loud whistle is the only sound to be heard over noisy & excited Cairns)


Monica and Brenda carefully watching this years Musical Mats participants for cheating…. (Only one Sending Off this year)


Musical Mats Winner  Claire’s Alfie

 and Runner up Ollie

Class 2 - Handsomest Dog was Carol’s Sandie- Won this year by the only “Red head” in the line up -


Class 3 – Most Obedient Cairn

 A new class for 2011 (which sounds like a contraction in terms to me!)

After either a “wait” or “stay” Command Cairns had to sit on a mat on a loose lead –

 if the stepped off they were eliminated.

The Nail biting final

“You lot might as well give up now

 – Cos I’m staying put!”
