The South Wales & West of England Cairn terrier Club Championship Show, Saturday 20th October 2012, Swindon, Wiltshire.
Thank you to everyone involved, especially my two hardworking stewards, I enjoyed my day. Its five years since I last judged at this level & I wish I could say that quality has improved, but in the dog classes it was sadly lacking.
On the plus side, although I had a couple of questionable mouths, teeth were in the main, large & bites good. Some otherwise good exhibits were lacking in body condition & I didn’t care for the over sculpted presentation of some, with almost shaved necks & toplines. I found it very un-Cairn like. Also, some could have been cleaner ! However, I had some very pleasing youngsters of both sexes & a couple of the bitch classes were closely contested, making my decisions far from easy.
Sp Veteran Dog. 1
1st.Thompson`s Su.Ch. Castleline Jackard.

1st. Catto`s Birselaw The Thrill Of It All
I think when he matures he will be a thrilling dog !
Up to size wh.br. Good topline & tailset, good head, big teeth. He moved out well with strong hindquarters for his age, but needs to firm up in shoulder as yet. He had a good length of leg & presented a clean outline.
I seriously considered him for the RCC.
1st.Shannon & Storr Brenndarcy Borgen
Wh. Not a big boy but well made with correct balance, good textured coat. He moved well on good legs & feet. Promising.
2nd. Bateman & Gompels Carradine Terry`s Tipple.
Wh. Br. Larger than one, good mouth with large teeth.
Moved out well in profile, but a bit close front & back. His tail carriage spoilt his outline.
3rd. Waugh`s Tribbannon War Dance.

1st Bradshaw & Shannon Newfield Harvest Moon Over Brenndarcy
13mnth r.br. With nice head & expression., good large teeth, well presented coat of good texture. Moved out well, but needs to firm up in topline as yet. I found him a bit long in the loin & combined with a slightly low tail set, spoilt the balance of him.
1st Byrne & Inett`s Carradine Brian The Lion
Gr. Br. Nice head & expression, good length of neck & layback of shoulder, he moved out well & was very showy, but he needed to be shorter in the back for correct balance.

2nd. Parker Tucker`s Uniquecottage Raleigh.
Masculine gr.br, he was well constructed which made for a balanced outline. Liked his size & type, he moved & showed well, although he was more mature , I preferred the head of one.

1st . Felter`s & Rumens Ch. Landbuck Tillisch
Red with a lovely head, presented in good coat & condition , he was very nice to go over on the table & didn`t disappoint when moving.
I would have liked to see him go on a looser lead & ‘carry’ himself a bit more naturally, but I couldn’t deny his many virtues which I see he is passing on; his daughter was my best puppy bitch.
