Although the dogs were judged outside, the approach of dark clouds prompted a retreat under cover for the bitch classes.  Most of the girls found the smells on the ground irresistible and I made allowances for this.  No bad mouths, just one or two verging on level, all dogs had good feet and angulation.

MPD  (3, 2a) 1. Bratley & Holmes Amberhill Rob Roy, grey, good masculine head, level topline, good tailset, moved OK, carrying a little too much weight and coat needs tidying. 

PD  (3) 1. Cameron’s Stryveling Young Lochinvar, attractive head with dark eyes, wheaten with dark points, topline and coat at in-between stage, lovely teeth, moved a tad close at the back and not too enthusiastic about showing just yet  2. Chambers & Thomas’ Cairngrove Red Rascal, 8 mths, lovely red coat, pleasing head and expression, nice body, showed well but not as steady in movement as 1. 3. Peers’ Tweedisle that Special Man 

JD (2) 1. Smith’s Rocasovale Good Luck Charm, very masculine showy grey boy who strode out soundly, level topline and good tailset, good hard coat, inclined to legginess 2. Parker- Tucker’s Uniquecottage Chipmunk, nearer standard for size than 1, balanced outline and moved well, good mouth, coat needs attention, not showing too well.  Neither of these dogs’ heads impressed.  

ND (0) 

PGD (4) 1. Stephinson’s Twohoots Arthur, very attractive head and good quality red coat, masculine, balanced dog, well bodied.  2. Evans’ Birselaw Billy The Kid of Kapplegill, very showy chap, another good hard red coat, good topline, tailset. Neither of these two moved all that well and preferred head of 1. 3. Chambers’ Honeylin Supeman 

LD (4) 1. Watts’ Sarachelle The Helmsman, very dark harsh coated typy d. showed and moved very well, lovely mouth, dark eye, well ribbed up, better for size than 2 and 3.  2. Templeton’s Larchlea If Looks Could Kill, beautifully moving dog with excellent mouth, good if rather short coat, very showy but a little too much of him altogether for me and preferred head of 1. 3. Mears’ Glenmear Malfoy

 OD (3) 1. Short’s Glenchess Black Tie, cream well proportioned d. good front and shoulders, topline and tailset, appealing head and expression, well sprung ribs, coat OK, probably the best moving Cairn today, just flowed round, a delight to see. CC  2. Hooper’s Ch./Am. Ch.Birselaw Supertrooper, RCC, not quite the balance of 1 but very nice head and expression, lovely dark grey coat, good spring of rib, moved soundly  3.Stephinson’s Twohoots Advent Oberon. 

MPB (4.1) 1. Templeton’s Larchlea Remember Remember, what a charmer, dark baby with such a mischievous expression, excellent mouth, moved very well and showed her little socks off, good body and outline, lovely type who reminds me very much of her illustrious gt. grandfather, ‘Chance.’, BP  2. Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Miss Demeanor, light red, another attractive youngster with correct coat and nice head, balanced pup but a little wayward on the move.  3. Bratley & Holmes’ Amberhill Dancing Queen 

PB (4,2) 1. Templeton’s Larchlea Let Me Entertain U, light grey, another typy one, very showy , a little short of coat, beautiful teeth, good reach of neck, nice tailset, moving a touch wide in front. 2. Peers’ Tweedisle Only Make Believe, very pretty head, good type, nice for size but not showing or moving as well as 1. 

JB (6,2)  1. Parker Tucker’s Uniquecottage Glengettie, wheaten brindle with dark points, very typical pleasing head, good body, shoulders, topline and tailset, well balanced and sound moving b.   2. Catto’s Birselaw Special Moment, wheaten, very pretty head, possibly a trifle short in muzzle, lovely coat, well proportioned, moved well, not showing quite as well as 1, a difficult decision. 3. Smith’s Rocasovale All That Jazz 

NB (3) 1. Catto’s Cairness’s Nordic Princess at Birselaw, dark grey, although only 16mths, looks mature and ‘finished,’ very typy head, well bodied, lovely coat, good teeth, played up a bit on the move but did enough, RCC  2. Shopland’s Cherrycrack Chasing Aimee, attractive head with lovely mouth, lighter in build and coat not quite as good as 1, good tailset, well laid shoulders.  3. A. Dancing Queen 

PGB (6,2)  1. Pollock’s Stanedykes Diva, I just fell for this dark grey bitch, I judged her as a very immature minor puppy and she has fulfilled her promise.  So typical in every way, gorgeous head with the indefinable Cairn expression, good reach of neck but not overdone, lovely body and tailset, good bend of stifle, moved beautifully and showed all the time, CC, B.O.B.  2. Stephinson’s  Twohoots Cecilia,  very nice head and expression, good in body, tail, red coat past its best, moved steadily. 3. Peers’ Tweedisle Chasing Rainbows 

LB (5.1) 1. Jeffrey’s Sandaig Suilean Dubh, red brindle, very typical sweet head, excellent coat of good length, well made b. of nice size and balance, steady mover 2. Mears’ Stanedykes Tosca, similar in type but a shade longer cast, appealing expression, dark eyes, coat and movement not quite as good as 1. 3. Rae’s Chrianbi Sweet Perfume 

OB (4,1)  Not an impressive class for Open, 1. Short’s Glenchess Gold Myrtle, red brindle, rather short of coat, head OK, nice outline, won this class on her excellent movement  2. Cameron’s Stryveling Tusitala, red, well balanced b. nice body, excellent coat, ears a little wide set and moved erratically.  3. Butterfield’s Camasmor Coquette.
