General Championship Show
Saturday 1st September, 2012 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire
Many thanks to those exhibitors who honoured me with such a good entry; I enjoyed going over their dogs. Only a fool would try to justify a seemingly unexplainable act, so will leave well alone.
My comments on the breed are:
Delighted to have found nearly all exhibits had good mouths with decent sized teeth.
A neck should be of medium length - not too short or too long - a few were too long.
The problem of when going away - being too close and in some cases also partially cow-hocked.
The bitches were far superior to the dogs until it came to BOB, which I awarded to the dog, Ch Bilbo Baggins - who though not pulled out in the Terrier Group - represented the breed well in the Main Ring.

Minor Puppy Dog (3 - 0 abs)
1 Waugh's Tribannon War Dance an attractive cream dog with dark points; still needing ring experience but moved soundly when coming or going; lovely head with correct eye and ear placement, level topline with good tailset; good double coat of the required texture. BPD & BPIB
2 Keeves' Seveek Dare To Be Red a distinctive red dog, well up to size but needing to be a shade longer in back but scored over 3rd in front movement.
3 Brown's Becana Cockney Rebel.
Puppy Dog (3 - 0 abs)
1 Bateman & Gompels' Carradine Terries Tipple a wheaten with brindle dog built in good proportions and possessing an excellent head which he held correctly whilst on the move, one I liked very much and when selecting my best puppy dog, gave my reason to the handler for him missing out.
2 Bradshaw's Newfield Harvest Moon Over Brenndarcy a mature red brindle
of a good size, head developing a distinct masculine expression; excellent neck with well angulated shoulders; its overall balance was spoilt by being touch too long in the back.
3 Saich's Lindcoly Sword In The Stone.
Junior Dog (2 - 0 abs)
1 Burgin's Noncom Hugo First a brindle of a nice size with correct length of leg; shown in a decent coat; well bodied with correct rib and coupling; well handled and moved soundly.
2 Saich's Lindcoly Dark Knight a grey brindle which fits the same description as given to 1st but lost out on coat - another day, another judge, and the positions could be reversed.
Graduate Dog (5 - 0 abs)
1 Percy's Winetta Stand And Deliver red brindle just out of Junior and maturing nicely; definitely masculine with a pleasing head and expression; straight front, good neck and pleasing topline; little loose at front but correct rear movement; well handled and presented in a good condition.
2 Lamb & Saltmarsh's Renshaw There And Back Again a well-balanced grey brindle of a good type; good head with correct stop and eye; level topline and correct tailset; a very close contest today, yet a dog which should do well for its owners when it reaches full maturity.
3 Newton's Strathinver Specification.
Post Graduate Dog (4 - 1 abs)
1 Parker-Tucker's Uniquecottage Jumbuck a cream, well up to size, with a good masculine head; good neck, well-bodied with correct rib and coupling; liked his overall balanced proportions; shown in full coat. One which certainly needs firm handling as given too much of the lead, he would take over. Deserved the RDCC.
2 Keeve & Bennett's Seveek Who Dares Wins a well up to size wheaten brindle with a pleasing profile; good head, stop and eyes; nicely bodied with decent spring of rib; correct movement and handled well.
3 Lamb & Saltmarsh's Birselaw Fable Sh.CM
Limit Dog (2 - 0 abs)
1 Confue's Anjofra I'm Not Going, JW good head well-furnished with correct ear placement, correct colour and size of eye, good mouth with big teeth; with a good double coat of correct texture; presented a nicely balanced profile when standing; taken time but he has matured well.
2 Thompson's Castleline Bang On Time a wheaten brindle with a good black mask and dark ears; good body with correct rib and coupling; shown in full coat, well handled and moved well.
Open Dog (3 - 0 abs)
1 Robinson's Ch Cruzo Bilbo Baggins a handsome wheaten with the best of heads complete with dark points; small ears, dark eyes, and excellent mouth; with lovely balanced proportions and of the correct size; a quality dog of a good type which presents a super profile both standing and moving. DCC & BOB
2 King & Leighton's Ch Carradine Night Listener At Harkinleigh a grey brindle which makes the most of its good attributes; always makes the most of the ring and is a worthy champion but, today, was unfortunate to came up against one that I consider to be a little bit special.
3 Saich's Lindcoly Dark Enterprise.
Good Citizen Dog (1 - 0 abs)
1 Keeves & Bennett's Seveek Who Dares Wins
Veteran Bitch: No Entries
Minor Puppy Bitch (5 - 0 abs)
1 Yates & Johnson's Penley Hester a well handled and well trained youngster which put in a show that made others of the same age look babies. Feminine expression on a good head with small ears and the correct eye; well turned out and presented in excellent coat; head held as it should, high, whether standing or moving; a very good prospect at this stage.
2 Keeves' I Dreamed A Dream a delightful wheaten brindle youngster; nice head with big teeth and correct bite; straight front with medium bone, decent neck; level topline with good tailset; moved well.
3 Keeves' Living The Dream - copper red in colour.
Puppy Bitch (5 - 0 abs)
1 Robinson's Cruzo Blueberry a smart wheaten brindle with dark points; nice head with good stop and correct eye and ear placement; nicely turned out in good double coat of good texture; well constructed throughout with good neck, shoulders and topline; would liked a higher tailset but her movement and ring presence scored in her favour. BPB & RBCC
2 Confue's Anjofra Moi Assi similar to 1st but with a better tailset; yet still a youngster needing more time for her movement to settle down.
3 Bateman & Inett's Carradine In Love With Amy.
Junior Bitch (8 - 1 abs)
1 Rouillon's Sweet Surprise Cloud of Joy a wheaten with dark points; very nicely made of good proportions; good head with the correct eye to provide a lovely feminine expression; moved soundly but having a feeling of her being young, then asked her age and found she was a 10 month old puppy. I had no hesitation in selecting her as being the class winner.
2 Shaw's Honeyhall Hearsay a wheaten brindle which is waiting for a new coat to be at her best but is of a type which I favour; good head; clean neck and shoulders; level topline with good tailset; decent length of leg; well balanced and moves soundly.
3 Burnett's Kilnyard Good Heavens.
Graduate Bitch (7 - 0 abs)
I had to reverse my first and second choice in the line-up placing, as although standing with tail up, she had lost the alertness or interest that's expected from a terrier.
1 Percy's Winetta Rebel Rebel a wheaten brindle with dark points, good head; neck and shoulders; level topline; good tailset; with good textured coat; moved well in front but would like a little more space at rear; shows continually.
2 Shannon & Storr's Brenndarcy Snedronningen wheaten with good head and correct mouth; decent neck; level topline with good tailset; covered the ground well and much to like about her.
3 Parker-Tucker's Uniquecottage Snowy Egret.
Post Graduate Bitch (7 - 0 abs)
1 Dolan's Castleline Peggy Sue a wheaten which appears to show herself; quality head with nice expression; well bodied with correct ribcage; balanced in profile; moves with drive.
2 Kinton's Playing For Tyme a grey brindle with dark points; shown in full coat; good head; medium neck; nicely bodied with good spring to rib and correct coupling; handled and moved well.
3 Hawkins' Mazlar Once Upon A Dream.
Limit Bitch (4 - 1 abs)
1 Waugh's Tribannon In The Limelite a wheaten brindle with a good head which is enhanced by her black mask that provides for her gorgeous expression; nice to go over on the table and found correct shoulder placement; level topline; well set on tail; believe she moved soundly both ways but the handler could not control her exhilaration when being assessed for either of the two main awards - a pity.
2 Rouillon's Ginger Rogers a wheaten brindle of a slightly smaller size but fits into the Standard's requirements, very well; enjoyed going over her on the table and found a good shaped head with good stop and a medium length muzzle, good bite with correct dentition; well balanced overall with an excellent flow from back of skull to tailset; moved soundly, as expected from her make-up; size was no handicap to her - she just came up along one I preferred just a little bit more.
3 Kinton's Woodthorpe Maybe This Time - another very nice bitch.
Open Bitch (8 - 2 abs)
1 Waugh & Carlton-Smith's Tribannon Guardian Angel possesses virtually everything one could wish for in a Cairn show bitch - Type; excellent head; deep stop; small ears; excellent neck and shoulders; level topline with correct tailset; shown in good coat; moved soundly both ways, holding her topline; when moving in profile, showed good reach and drive. BCC
2 Dolan's Ch Glenrood Masqerade a quality bitch with an excellent balanced outline and one who's aware of being so - as she continually keeps showing when in the ring. Nice feminine head held high with a lovely line flowing down her neck into a level topline and ending at a tail, set well on. Very sound and moved beautifully around the ring.
3 Shaw's Honeyhall Hi 'N' Dry - another quality bitch.
Good Citizen Bitch (1 - 0 abs)
1 Brynes Little Miss Tonka a smartly turned out wheaten, good on the table and of a nice shape and size; handled and moved well, she looked to be enjoying her spell in the spot light and left me no alternative but to put her in 1st place.
