Bournemouth 2007


The really hot sunshine took its toll on the exhibits and the spiky grass did not help movement but most exhibits coped fairly well with the conditions.


I last judged the CTC Championship show in October 2004.  Then I thought the majority of Cairn heads were good.  After this judging appointment I must admit that I think we are losing that head.  I was disappointed to see so many heads that lacked that real Cairn expression.  Many skulls were narrow and flat and the definite indentation between the eyes (the stop) was lacking in many exhibits.  I found no light eyes but some big round ones that did not help the expression either.  If we are not careful we shall be losing that Cairn head.


On the plus side I think neck, shoulders and fronts are good, toplines in general are level and movement overall wasn’t as bad as I have seen in the past. 


Some exhibits I have admired from the ringside in the past did not come up to my expectations on the table, they lacked substance which was hidden by coat from the ringside.  On the contra side, some other exhibits I found a bit coarse, medium should be the important word, no exaggerations of any kind are desirable in our breed. 


My DCC and BOB was Ch Cannwood As If My Magic to Starveren JW.  I judged him as a puppy and found him an exciting prospect but he really has matured into a beautiful ambassador for our breed.  He is balanced, of the right size, with a most charming head.  He has that broad skull with a deep stop, his muzzle is strong and eyes the correct size, shape and colour.  Correct mouth. With a full head of furnishings I think his is one of the best heads I have ever seen.


His topline is level and he keeps this on the move, striding out around the ring in style, true front and back. He uses his tail well and it is well set on. Bodywise he is well muscled, nice layback of shoulder, straight front and good rear angulation.  Although all male he is medium throughout.


Presented in such a way that he shows off his many attributes and showing like a Cairn, animated but under control.


He never put a foot wrong in the group and showed his head off.


My Bitch CC was Petts’ Cannwood Kasta Spell at Doonrae.  She is a very attractive, workmanlike, dark brindle, a smaller clone of the DCC winner which is no wonder as she is the litter sister.  She is what the standard asks for, medium throughout with no exaggerations, of the correct size with a harsh coat in good condition.  She is feminine in head with an adequate length of neck and back and correct lay of shoulder.  She is balanced with a good brisket and rib of the correct depth. Dark dogs feel the heat more than other colours but she was on top form, not overshown.  She moved easily around the ring, a true mover.


My RDCC was Grainger’s Devil in Disquise.  I think this smart, bright red is yet to reach full maturity but has everything in place for this. I think his best features are his head and his movement.  He has the breadth of skull we need, correctly set ears and a strong jaw.  He too kept his topline on the move, he was true in front and from behind he drove out with adequate space between his back legs.  I would not like him any longer in back. 


Reds are notoriously difficult to keep in good coat, but this is just OK at the moment, he was well presented and in true rapport with his handler, a very attentive showman.


My RBCC was Thompson’s Casteline Tiger Lily, this cream youngster was so lovely.  Her well furnished head with the dark points was so feminine and appealing.  She has a lovely deep stop. She is balanced with a level topline, nice neck and shoulders and in good jacket, profuse but tidy it was of the correct texture.  Her rear angulation was excellent and she moved with drive, effortlessly around the ring.  She showed well to win this placing, which she well deserved – she can only get better!


BP was Dolan & Inett’s Glenrood Iceman.  A smart cream, so well balanced.  He has a masculine head with a good bite from his really big teeth.  Level topline, good flow of neck, stood well forward and had nice angulation from the rear.  Nice thick tail, well set. In good coat and condition, moved and showed well.


Minor Puppy Dog (6, 1a)

  1. Dolan & Inett’s Glenrood Iceman - BP
  2. Peers’ Tweedisle Guy Mannering, dark brindle pup with a very nice make & shape.  Presented a pleasing outline, no coarseness.  I liked his flow & length of neck, clean shoulders.  Presented well, in coat of correct texture.  When he settles down to his show career he should trouble the best.
  3. Saich’s New Adventure


Puppy Dog (2,1a)

1.      Saich’s New Adventure, smart light red pup, nicely balanced with a good coat.  Feeling the heat today and not giving of his best.


Junior Dog (7)

  1. Stephinson’s Twohoots Barnabas, light red youngster who was so well presented.  His best features are his head, deep stop and dark points, topline and tailset, although the rest of him isn’t bad either!  He has a good straight front with correct lay of shoulder.  He extends nicely at the rear and is well muscled.  Good back movement and he showed well in the heat.  Pushed hard for RCC.
  2. Edney’s Cherrycrack Poacher, I liked this red a lot, he has a really masculine head but an attractive one with great expression.  Good bodyshape, carried his tail well.  Moved very well in profile, keeping his topline level on the move.  Well presented in full, profuse coat.   Looked a mature male, handled well.  Close up to 1
  3. Lynch’s Fieldron Call My Bluff at Linacrelads


Novice Dog (2, 1a)

  1. Tweedisle Guy Mannering


Graduate Dog (3, 2a)

  1. Grainger’s Devil In Disquise -RDCC


Post Graduate Dog (6, 3a)

  1. Soper’s Uniquecottage Ring Plover, Very showy grey brindle with a very expressive Cairn head, used his ears well.  Clean shoulders, adequate length & flow of neck, level topline, tail bang on top. Stood well with that rear stance which is bred in. 
  2. Hawkins’ Kilnyard Archie Spangles, wheaten, another nice head with well set ears and dark points. Nicely proportioned, straight front.  Well presented, preferred rear angulation of winner.
  3. Saich’s Lindcoly High Flyer


Limit Dog (8,2a)

1.      Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Spellbinder, nice sized wheaten who excels in head.  He has an adequate length of neck and is balanced. Nice lay of shoulder. Good harsh textured jacket, moved well, particularly from the rear with drive and a nice space between his legs. Well presented and handled.

2.      Hooton’s Penticharm Party Knight, slightly larger and a bit longer in back than winner.  Straight front and good brisket, correct tailset. Harsh jacket, moved straight.  Just not giving of his best today.

3.      Shopland’s Cherrycrack Mack The Knife


Open Dog (4,1a)

1.      Middlehurst’s Ch Cannwood As If By Magic to Starveren JW - CC

2.      Saich’s Lindcoly Golden Legend, red, presented a clean outline with a good length of neck, nice straight front and level topline, with adequate ground clearance. A little high on the hock.  Showed well.

3.      Castrey’s Cloverbrook Angus McLee of Casmhor


Minor Puppy Bitch (10,3a), a lovely line up of puppies which should bode well for the future.  First 3 were all lovely pups.

  1. Dolan’s Glenrood Forever Topps, ultra feminine cream with a cute head and expression.  Nice forehand, level topline.  Good rear angulation, posed herself well.  In excellent coat & condition, showed all out to win this strong class.
  2. Confue’s Anjofra Me Me Me, I just loved her, so full of life and so mischievous.  Very well balanced and in excellent textured coat and condition.  She has a really expressive head, mature in body for one so young.  Everything in the right place.  Winner was more mature in attitude in the ring but I think 1 and 2 will have a competitive time together.
  3. Poile’s Kedvaiy Happy Feet


Puppy Bitch (6)

  1. Thompson’s Castleline Bonnie, another exhibit with an attractive head, good stop, nice ear placement, correct eye.  Nice reach of neck and in hard condition.  Stylish showgirl who moved so effortlessly with good drive. 
  2. Dolan’s Glenrood Forever Popsy, Similar to winner of MP and same comments apply, just preferred head of winner.
  3. Weinberger’s Correnie Crazy for You.


Junior Bitch (9,3a)

  1. Thompson’s Castleline Tiger Lily RBCC
  2. Stephinson’s Twohoots Agnes, very well presented cream with a feminine head & expression.  Nicely proportioned throughout, not overdone in any way, not showing as well as the winner, thought perhaps she could lose a pound which may help.  Nevertheless a quality bitch who was unlucky to meet 1 in such fine form.
  3. Moseley’s Carradine Sapphire at Spawyche


Novice Bitch (1, 1a)


Graduate Bitch (4, 1a)

  1. Green’s Aizenay Que Sera Sera, red brindle of correct size, so soundly proportioned, feminine head enhanced by dark points.  Good, but not too heavy bone.  Moved correctly with nice drive from the rear. Well presented & shown.
  2. Robinson’s Cruzo Brisk Breeze, liked her type, she has a good head & her front, topline and rear were all 1st class,  thought she was not as well bodied as winner.  A good showgirl.
  3. Hewitt’s Correnie Jazz Talk at Littleacorn


Post Graduate Bitch (9, 2a) – 3 nice bitches, close decision

  1. Poile’s Kedvaiy Can Can, no one can deny that this bright red bitch is ultra smart.  For me she is up to size.  She has an exceptionally level topline, & a good flow of neck into clean shoulders.  Coat of correct texture & she moved well front & back.  Animated showgirl.
  2. Inett’s Carradine Magic Star, light grey brindle with a lovely feminine head & expression.  Good rear angulation, well muscled.  Shown in more profuse coat than number 3, showed very well indeed in good rapport with handler.
  3. Oldale’s Cranae New Dawn


Limit Bitch (6, 3a)

  1. Shannon, Storr & Culliford’s Brenndarcy Be Bop Deluxe, cream of nice size with no exaggerations whatsoever.  Typical head with dark points, well balanced & of sound conformation, coat of lovely texture & just the right length.  She is in very good condition and moved well.  Just flagged a little in the challenge & did not use her tail to best advantage.  A really nice honest bitch.
  2. Hooton’s Penticharm Caribbean Queen, have admired this bitch from the ringside for a long time so was anxious to get my hands on her.  She is soundly made and a lovely size but I thought today felt a little heavy.  She is feminine throughout with a harsh coat.  She did not co-operate too well with her handler on the move.
  3. Hewitt’s Littleacorn Keep in Touch


Open Bitch (4,2a)

  1. Petts’ Cannwood Kasta Spell at Doonrae
  2. Hooton’s Penticharm Time To Party, another lovely bitch, a shade bigger than the winner.  She has a lovely expressive head with good deep stop. Level topline, staright front, correct tailset, well muscled rear. Just thought she looked a little unbalanced today with coat left on under the belly line.  Lively shower, moved well.
