North Of Ireland Cairn Terrier Club Championship Show.
27th February 2010.
I wish to thank the committee for the warm Irish hospitality throughout the w/e. My excellent ring stewards, and the exhibitors for bringing their cairns for my opinion.
A mixed bag awaited me today, great variation in type and quality. We are losing our breed type and the true cairn head and expression. Movement left a lot to be desired especially in the rear. I found a couple with suspect dentition. Coats varied but all were double coated and clean, grooming and presentation was poor in some exhibits. Temperaments were excellent.
I was pleased with my final line up all of good breed type with true cairn heads and expressions.
1 Hogarty’s Cadagio No Doubt About It, eye catching D/G/B almost 9months.Well grown sturdy puppy, defined stop, strong muzzle, exuberant personality movement steady.
1 Inetts, Carradine Crackaway Jack, red brindle, head developing, flowing neckline, good length of back but not holding himself together at times due to a lack of confidence and immaturity, presentation and show condition spot on, free mover.
JD No entries.
MD No entries
1 Forbes, Eglish Brooklin Bress, wheaten, correct shaped expressive eye, broad strong muzzle, large teeth, sturdy body, in-between coats and carrying a little excess weight.
1 Oughs, Ocedar Zephyr, wheaten, well formed head with cairn expression, shapely body, level top line, nice bend of stifle, needing a new coat. Had one of the best rear movements of the day.
PGD 5 (3)
1 Catto’s Birselaw Follow Your Dream, Grey brindle well up to size, desirable cairn head and expression, stands well forward, elegant neck flowing into good shoulder placement. Moved freely, excels in outline, standing and on the move, holds himself together so well and full of confidence. .R.C.C.
2 Wedge’s Master Mackenzie Of Monea, clear red, all male, strongly made upstanding dog. Attractive head displaying broad skull & correct ear set, ample fore chest a little proud of his tail at times. Double coat of correct texture, well presented, never stopped showing.
1 Moseley’s & Inetts, Spawyche Elizabethan Onyx, Grey, attractive dog with nice size and balance, head of equilateral proportions, correct bite, large teeth, super top line and tail set, show condition and presentation excellent, moving freely.
2 Alexander’s Dream Boy Bobby, aptly named as he never stopped showing, wheaten, very short on coat, attentive expression, sturdy compact body carrying a little extra weight, tail bang on top which never stopped wagging, short hocks movement steady.

1, Pollock’s Ch Larchlea Licenced To Thrill At Stanedykes,
Up to size red copper brindle, good head, stands well forward, flowing neckline into strong level top line, good bodily proportions, muscled quarters, moved freely, lacked animation at times but did enough to win the CC. Came out all guns blazing in the challenge to take Best In Show.
2 Smith’s Rocasovale Razzle Dazzle, dark brindle, masculine head, deep stop, darkest of eyes, strong muzzle, large teeth, well bodied with nicely angulated quarters, sound movement, on the day I thought the winner was in better show condition and held himself together better in profile on the move.
