Critique for Cairn Terriers at Border Union Agricultural Society, Kelso 20th June 2009.


I would like to thank the Committee of Border Union Agricultural Society for inviting me to judge the Cairns at their Championship Show, and to thank especially both the exhibitors present and all those who entered their cairns, for me to judge at my first CC appointment. I found the day very enjoyable and was generally impressed with the high level of quality cairns in the entry. Movement in general was good, and all cairn temperaments were excellent
