GP Out-Takes (All his own work!)

It’s no good begging for a bite

It’s all mine!

All for a mint with a hole in it!

I want it all!

Could have warned me it was cold!

I’m happy doing rubbish jobs!

I’m praying it’s not that one!

Who would have thought it!

Could have sworn you put it in your back pocket

Close the eyes & think its..wine!

Judging exciting! It’s nail biting

I have this special power in my hands!

That one’s not for me!

Difficult with no tripod

But Alan I thought it to be about this size


Thanks! Tea for two will be fine

Must be careful not to spill any!





I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the exhibits and there were a number which on another day, under another judge, might have won their class. In some exhibits I found it difficult to write complimentary reports. When I was taught to judge I should look for the good features in exhibits and not their faults.


Heads, the stop & general the bone structure of the head shape, were good, although some had a poorly defined stop & lacked width between the ears, which is not typically of a Cairn. Length of neck is important to me and some suffered because they looked “stuffy”.


A good straight front, with legs dropping straight down from the shoulders is also important if you want to see good front movement. Almost all of the exhibits had a good depth of brisket and length of ribs compared with overall length.


Top lines were generally good and held whilst on the move. Tail sets were generally good, as was the angulation of the hind legs, the latter being essential for good drive.

Class  969   PUPPY DOG              Entries 2     Absentees   0

1st 4990  Mrs J Percy – Winetta Sir Percy

This was a lovely red dog with dark points which must have a bright future. Good mouth and teeth. Sound head bone structure. Good ear placement. Excellent confirmation & well up to size but does not need to grow much more. Good length of neck and level top line which he held whilst moving. Front legs - one of the best – straight - dropping from good shoulder placement. Good sound body & tail set. Excellent rear leg angulation. His movement, front & rear, was one of the best on the day. Best Puppy.

Very similar in many respects to 1. Nice front legs & good angulation on rear, but not as pleasing as 1.
