Usk Showground on Friday, 8th July, 2005


The South Wales Kennel Association has an ideal showground and it was obvious that much thought went into the preparation for the show. All the rings were well laid out and of a good size with short grass. It was pleasing to see the officials in their official green blazers positioned where they could be seen and give assistance, if required.

    Certainly, liked the way passes were being taken as the cars entered the ground, so saving those pulling trolleys or walking dogs, with baggage, from forming queues as they searched for their passes.

    I felt honoured to have been invited to judge at their show, but ashamed of not rewarding them by attracting a much better entry. Yet my thanks go to all, especially those who had travelled long distances: but being limited by my ability of only being able to place dogs, as I see them; was unable to reward all those attending on the day.

    Marie Hogarty by being an absentee saved me from having to make, what to me would have been a momentous decision; the one having to choose between – Ch Cadigio As Good As It Gets and Ch Cannwood As If By Magic to Staveren – two very good champion dogs and both are ones I like.

    Over all the years of my being in the breed, it has been forever preached by notable judges of Cairns; saying “Don’t fault judge – look to its virtues’.

    This question has arisen many times in my mind – Has it, by using that method, helped the breed to progress to its betterment or has it encouraged faults to be bred in – not out?

    Naturally, like “The proof of the pudding is in the eating”, after all these years the proof should clearly be found in the ring, Good to report of not finding any bad mouths: there were many with the required large teeth - but only a few dogs possessing the essential parallel movement, with drive.

MPD (1, abs)

PD (2) 1st Gill’s Copseleaze Red Skies a dark red brindle of a nice size and shape in good coat; good head with nice eye and ear placing; level topline with good tailset; with correct rear angulations which enabled him to move with drive. BP 2nd Goldfinch’s Anjofra Hobbs Among Kanawha a light red of good size and well bodied; strong head, dark eye and correct ear; didn’t settle down too well when asked to move.

JD (3) 1st Thompson’s Castleline Jackard a wheaten dog with good head and in profile is very nicely balanced; good neck running into a level topline with a good tailset; though a little close behind when moving away. 2nd West’s Junetta Victor grey brindle dog with a good head but would prefer a slightly darker eye; level topline with good tailset; still a little loose in his front movement. 3rd Kippen’s Chezaku Helmsman

PGD (5, 1 abs ) 1st Gill’s Copseleaze Light Skies a wheaten brindle shown in good coat which needed a little more work done on its presentation and a little more training for the ring; but that said, he was quite a nice dog. Good head, dark eye and ear placing giving an expressive face; strong level topline with good tailset, nice angulations front and back; moved well at times and the faults were not of his making. 2nd O’Kane’s Keybrough Jack Daniels a wheaten of nice outline with ample neck; good strong topline, tailset and angulations. Never showed himself or really settled down in the ring and made his handler work all of the time to get this result. 3rd Smith’s Rocasovale Good Luck Charm.

LD (3) 1st Harrison & Inett’s Hyde Castle Flic Flac for Carradine a lovely bright red with excellent head and expression; shown in hard condition; there is very much to like about him and I loved his rear construction which certainly possesses the strength to move with drive. Asked afterwards, by someone questioning his temperament, I told of finding a dog of excellent temperament but one with a will of his own; just

wanting his own ground; seen many good dogs with this same trait over the years. 2nd West’s Junetta Ludycrous who was looking a better dog since when I last judged him. Well-bodied wheaten brindle shown in good coat Good head, mouth and eye but not so clever with his ears, as he kept laying them; level topline good tailset and rear angulations, Not so happy with the hot sun and it showed in his moving but deserved his placing. 3rd Thompson’s Castleline Prince Harry.

OD (4, 1 abs) 1st Middlehurst’s Ch Cannwood As If By Magic at Staveren a wheaten brindle of excellent quality. Size, proportions and balance all blending together to make a superb profile of this dog when standing. Turned out immaculately with coat of the correct texture; with excellent head and expression; nice reach of neck, length of back and the tail set-on just right; good construction at front and rear, and moved soundly. He was everything that I had expected him to be – a very worthy champion of the breed. DCC & BOB. 2nd Templeton’s Larchlea If Looks Could Kill a dark brindle and as always from this kennel, well-presented in good coat and shown in hard condition. Well up to size but with a balanced outline; moved with drive and never stopped showing; he deserved his award of RDCC. 3rd  Kippen’s Chezaku Master Mariner

MPB (3) 1st Osborn’s Tweslam Amber Nectar red brindle of a nice shape and size; good head with neat ears and correct eye; much to like about her and moved soundly when walked. 2nd Radford’s Skimmerton Touch of Magic wheaten brindle, still very much a baby and a handful of mischief for the handler; good balance; nice head and expression; level topline; good angulations. 3rd Berrybone Surprise Delight.

PB (6) 1st Bambridge’s Carradine Crème Brulee for Luvemal a very alert red brindle in good coat and possessing that gorgeous expression one wishes to see in the face of a Cairn; excellent head; good neck & shoulders; strong topline with correct tailset; nice length of leg, just lacking a little in rear angulation but alright on the move. 2nd Radford’s Skimmerton Gold Dust wheaten brindle of a nicely balanced shape but would have liked a touch more bone; good head and mouth, level topline with good tailset; moved and showed well. 3rd Burnett’s Kilnyard Cut The Mustard.

JB (5, 2 abs) 1st Keeves Seveek River of Dreams wheaten brindle with dark points; nice size of good balanced proportions; good head with a feminine expression; level topline with good tailset; moved soundly; a lot to like about this young lady 2nd Krzyskowski’s Corrandulla Carousel, dark red brindle with good head and expression; good neck shoulders and level back; she holds and shows herself well, yet has a tendency to be a little proud of her tail; moved and showed well. 3rd Lifton’s Anjofra Treacle Tart at Iffycairn.

PGB (9) Both the largest and the quality class of the day. 1st Weaver’s Copseleaze Harriet a wheaten brindle of a nice size and balance;  enhanced with the necessary dark points to provide a true Cairn head with typical mischievous expression. Even in the heat of the day she fitted the Standard correctly in her general appearance “Agile; alert; of workmanlike natural appearance; standing well forward on forepaws; very free in movement; weather resistant coat.” Unlike some who can look the part standing; she proved her worth by having the correct parallel movement, with drive, when walked. Harriet gave me much pleasure on finding her to be in my ring and so able to reward her by presenting her with the BCC. 2nd Parker-Tucker’s Uniquecottage Gold Tarka red brindle with a good head and expression; good outline, well-balanced in proportions; excellent neck and shoulders; level topline with good tailset; good depth and spring of rib; a little uncertain of herself on the move but her movement was good. RCC. 3rd Keeve’s Seveek The Mystery of Dreams

LB (5, 1 abs) 1st Moseley’s Spawyche Elizabethan Pearl a very showy and alert wheaten with a lovely outline when viewed in profile; good head, expression, dark eye and with correct ear placement; level topline with good tailset, balanced angulations front and back; moved and showed well. 2nd Keeves & Bennett’s Seveek One Moment in Time with Maxiveek wheaten brindle with dark points shown in good coat; good head and mouth; level topline with good tailset; just a little too much curvature to the rib cage for my liking but deserved her placing. 3rd Smith’s Rocasovale All That Jazz.

OB (4) Found it a difficult task to place these two quality bitches for they both appealed to me in slightly different ways; on another day I could quite easily reverse the placing. 1st Templeton’s Larchlea Let me Entertain U, an alert dark grey brindle very nicely presented in good coat; lovely head and expression; correct reach of neck on nicely laid-back shoulders; good front; level topline and good tailset. Constantly seeking instruction from her handler, carried out all her duties with both drive and enjoyment; moved and showed to perfection. 2nd Smee’s Oudenarde Belle Amour a dark brindle bitch which I had hoped to have been entered for me to go over. I was not in anyway disappointed for she certainly is a quality bitch and virtually all written about No 1 is applicable to her. The reason behind my decision on the placing could well be put down to her not coping with the heat so well as the Larchlea girl. 3rd Keeves’ Seveek Chasing Dreams
