Midland C.T.C. Cairn Day 2012

13th October 2012

Held at Hasland Village Hall, Hasland, Derbyshire.


What a brilliant turnout we had for 2012 MCTC Cairn Day! Both Pet & Show Cairns and their owners joined in the fun,

making it yet another very successful and enjoyable day.



The first hour of day was all about trimming, tips and advice on grooming Cairns for both pet and show Cairn owners was given by Dawn Inett, Alison Wragg & Pat Clarke


This was followed by

Monica & Brenda’s Fun Classes.

This year we had splashed out on some lovely prizes –

Squeaky ducks –furry alligators, very smart Tartan leads, a bespoke Rosette for the winner + every dog who took part received a treat.


Class One Best Sausage Catcher -

Monica as usual took charge of throwing the sausages to the expectant Cairns whilst Brenda  gave out the treats to  those eliminated

 The 2012 MCTC Sausage Catcher of the year was Henry.. Also last years winner!!!! .

Handled by Sarah this year. But I think he better look out for next year as it was a very close thing.

There are some young uns… who with a bit more training could take his title next year!

All lined up for sausage catching  action!

A youngster with a good technique & promise

Henry never took his eye of the sausage

Class two – Musical (Whistle) Mats

 (A loud whistle is the only sound to be heard over noisy & excited Cairns)

No sending’s off this year and was won by Mary’s Sophie

Class 3 – Longest Stay -

 Last years winner veteran Gemma lost her title, although she came third.

It was a dead heat between young Lily with her handler Esther & Josie with Veteran Holly.


Unfortunately there was a bit of cheating in this class, Dawn Inett decided to put a ringer in the class.

After a stewards enquiry Monica accidently kicked Dawn’s Oinky over and asked her to leave the ring!
