Cairn Terriers


Thank you to the Exhibitors for allowing me to handle your dogs and further more pass judgement, there was some difficult decisions for me to make, both Limit, Open and Puppy Bitch classes were a pleasure to judge and had quality in depth, in the latter case some very interesting prospects went cardless.   


Puppy Dog (5-1 abs)

1st Wall’s Cloverbrook Ray of Sunshine over Shearwater, a quality red dog, appealed in outline and stance, masculine head, keen eyes and expression, although requires more head furnishings, correct harsh coat, presented in good condition, moved freely and with purpose, responded very well to handler, Best Puppy.

2nd Bennett’s Maximal Tinkers Moon, a cream one of a larger frame, typical in expression, good front and strong quarters, not the coat or animation of the winner, moved ok, needs time to mature.

3rd Peers Tweedisle Speedy Ric Shaw

Junior Dog (3-1 abs)

1st Downie & Tate’s Jaeva Face The Music, a smart looking dark brindle, liked his head and expression but another who would benefit with more furnishings, good make and shape, harsh coat which was presented well, showed off his virtues, moved with drive, but a touch wide in front movement.

2nd Felters & Rumens Landbuck Colour Code, a very sound wheaten dog, handled very well on the table, not in the best of coats but what was there, was of the correct texture, just lacked the presence of the winner.

Post Grad Dog (5-1 abs)

1st Dolan & Inett’s Glenrood Ice Man, another wheaten with the desired dark points, liked his head with a dark eye and well placed ears, fair reach of neck, pleasing in body with ample bone, moved freely.

2nd Peers Tweedisle Guy Mannering, a good honest dark brindle one with lots to like about him, typical in outline, preferred front movement of the winner but moved well behind.

3rd Rhead’s Copseleaze Chesterwoodboy

Limit Dog (8-2 abs)

1st Pollocks Larchlea Licence to Thrill at Stanedykes, a red brindle dog with quality and substance, but in no way course, loved him in outline, exceptional head and expression, correctly made with a good double coat, in very good form, moved with drive but to be hyper critical I would like him to be more positive in front (but then there’s always something!) In the challenge he made it easier for me as he seemed to loose interest where the Veteran (his Sire) gave 110%, however he should easily gain his title, RCC.

2nd Watson’s Fieldron I’ve Got News For You, a wheaten brindle from a smaller mould, he also owns a super head and expression, good front, fair reach of neck, with well laid shoulders, big spring of rib and strong quarters, harsh coat, moved well in front but today lacked drive, a true Cairn who I feel should never be over looked, a close decision.

3rd Templeton’s Larchlea Time To Entertain

Open Dog (6)

1st Harrison & Inett’s Tu Winnit with Carradine, a wheaten brindle who owns a typical head and expression, good neck and shoulders, big spring of rib, correct tailset and strong quarters, moved freely, beautifully clean and well conditioned, a responsive showman.

2nd Firth & Jones Cairngold Jackpot, a dog of similar lines to one and the same remarks apply however I thought him a little plain in head in comparison, he also moved well and saw off some strong opposition to gain second. 

3rd Middlehurst’s Zalazar Un Zipped at Starveren. 

Veteran Dog (2)

1st Catto’s Norw/Dan/Fin/Swed/UK Ch Birselaw Billy Fury, He Came, He Saw, He Conquered, little did I think when I arrived at Stafford to Judge Cairn Terriers that I would be awarding the CC to a Veteran but what a Veteran! No dog is perfect and his few failings are soon ignored when one is presented with outstanding type, outline, super head and expression, soundness and showmanship, for me this dark brindle dog had it all, took the CC & Best of Breed and was short listed in a very strong Group.

2nd Walls Ch Shearwater Cae de Sonhas, also a pleasure to handle this dog, it is easy to see why in his youth that he attracted a large amount of admirers, still moves freely and with purpose and maintains his masculine stance but could not match the winners performance today, very well preserved. 

Puppy Bitch (11-1 abs)

1st Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Button It, a most appealing feminine wheaten bitch, nicely proportioned outline, liked her head with a typical dark eye, good neck and shoulders, level topline with correct tailset, a promising one who moved and showed well.

2nd Newtons Strathinver Sheenagh, similar bitch to the winner and has many fine attributes but on the day she did not poses the show style of one,

3rd Confue’s Anjofra Welcome To La La Land

Junior Bitch (5-2 abs)

1st Felters & Rumens Landbuck Jazz Hands, a stylish young wheaten bitch, took my eye when she first appeared in the ring, didn’t disappoint on handling her, at this age everything is in the right place, her movement is free and effortless, one for the future.

2nd Wren’s Larchlea Spirit In The Sky, a silver brindle, feminine in outline, liked her head and expression, correct coat and condition, moved well.

3rd Roberts Cannwood Danish Affair

Post Grad Bitch (6-2 abs)

1st Shaw’s Honeyhall Hide’N Seek, a most beautiful cream bitch which oozes quality, loved her type, very attractive head and expression, fair reach of neck and well laid shoulders, pleasing in body, strong quarters and correct tailset, lovely coat, condition and presentation, moved freely, a touch more maturity and I think she will trouble the best. RCC

2nd Chambers & Exton’s Cairngrove Clever Clogs, a nicely proportioned dark brindle, typical outline, moved and showed well.

3rd Roberts Cannwood Razz A Ma Tazz

Limit Bitch (7-2 abs)

1st Wrens Larchlea Light My Fire, a most appealing silver brindle, very attractive stance, scores in head & expression, good neck and shoulders, firm body, strong quarters, correct harsh coat, which was well presented, moved well.   

2nd Thompson’s Castleline Tiger Lily, a red bitch of quality, balanced outline and stylish mover, typical dark eye and well placed ears which gave the desired expression, another who was in good form, preferred the size of one.   

3rd Harrison & Inett’s Noncom Minnie the Minx at Carradine

Open Bitch (9-2 abs)

1st Firth & Jones Cairngold Avin A Paddy, a very shapely dark brindle, has attractive head with a mischievous expression, a free and easy mover who showed off her quality to the best advantage, harsh coat in lovely condition, well deserved the CC.

2nd Inett / Harrison & Claytons Carradine Magic Star, a bitch of similar style and owns many admirable qualities, could not match the winner on movement but certainly not disgraced standing second. 

3rd Thompson’s Castleline Bonnie
