Manchester Dog Show Society 17th January 2013
Cairn Terrier Critique
Judge Liam Dean (Orior)
Firstly, I would like to thank the Committee of Manchester Dog Show Society for the invitation to judge, and for their hospitality, my stewards for all their efforts, and all those exhibitors who entered on the day.
The temperaments of every cairn present were excellent, and presentation for many exhibits was first rate. I found more cairns than I expected with poor movement, particularly at the front. Overall, I found the day very enjoyable and was impressed with the high level of quality cairns in the entry.
Best of Breed was the Dog, Roberts Cannwood Cut Above, with Dolans Glenrood Masquerade taking the Bitch Ticket. The Best Puppy on the day was the dog Cannwood Royal Appointment
