The Welsh Kennel Club Championship Show 2016

Cairn Terriers 20th July, 2016

It is with much pleasure that I send my thanks the WKC’s, Officers and Committee Members, not just for their invitation to judge but also on the hospitality received; this certainly can never be bettered by any show. To the attending exhibitors and to those who entered but couldn’t make the trip on the day, I am most appreciative and send a grateful, thank you. Entries these days are spoilt by several reasons, the absentees – who, having paid their entry fees, have a reason for not attending – some knowing the faults in their dogs and believing the selected judge will do them no favours, do not to enter - and also by an ongoing conflict within the breed. One of which and having played no part or favoured either side, fills me with much sadness on their immaturity and lack of any consideration to the damage this is causing both within the sport and to the breed, itself. Exhibitors gave me a good entry on paper and being a judge who only looks at dogs, this pleased me. My only disappointment was the low entries in the puppy and junior classes and with stock in these classes being the future, then the breed cannot survive and prosper without good numbers being in these classes. Still, it was an enjoyable day and judged the dogs and placed them as my eyes and experience saw them, two could easily have dropped in their placing but it would have been harsh on either dog; when it was the owners’ presentation at fault. I will confess to have been looking forward to going over both a certain dog and a bitch, neither was there on the day – Would they have made a difference to my end result? – Not having gone over either of them, I will never know. But the ones placed for the highest awards were all of an excellent quality and it gave me pleasure to pull them out. The BPIB was pulled out in the Terrier Puppy Group but unfortunately was not placed. The BCC/BOB stayed for the Terrier Group and although she presented herself well, was not to the Group Judge’s seeking.


Veteran Dog: (1 entry – 1 abs)


Minor Puppy Dog: (3 entries – 2 Abs)

1 Miss M Ball - Lentrica Lets Dance at Calamondin, 7 months on the day a wheaten brindle with a decent head, nice eyes & neat dark ears. Well bodied for his age with a good outline, tail set, with a straight front and in good coat. At his age, no complaints with his front movement but found him to be a little erratic with his rear, this can be overcome. BPD


Puppy Dog: (1 entry) 1 Mrs A Waugh – Tribuns Licorice Coin at Tribannon, a dark brindle masculine puppy and at 11 months is well up to size. Good head with the correct ear placement and dark eye, good stop and mouth. Well bodied with deep ribs, level top line and straight front. Looks good standing but doesn’t move to the standard which I’ve come to accept from this kennel.


Junior Dog: (2 entries - 1abs)

1 Mr R & Mrs M Goud – Vale of Atholl’s Earl of Mansfield, a 14 month wheaten dog of a nice size with balanced proportions. Good head enhanced by dark points, scissor bite and dark eye. Level topline with good tail set. A little loose in front but still a promising youngster.


Novice Dog: (1 entry)

1 Miss A R Parker-Tucker – Uniquecottage Gold Sherdon, a light red dog having a decent head with the correct ear placing, nice reach of neck leading down to a level topline and good tail set. Not happy on the table or on the move. Perhaps, he would have been more comfortable with a few other dogs in the class for company.


Graduate Dog: (2 entries – 2 abs)


Post Graduate Dog: (5 entries – 1 abs)

1 Mrs J Keeves – Seveek I Spied that Dream, a red masculine dog of a nice size and proportions with the correct medium bone; shown in a hard condition. Has an appealing head with a good expression, correct eye and a good mouth. A little skittish on the move and needs stronger handling but saw enough of his movement to see good reach and strong drive plus the correct space between his rear legs. A dog capable of doing a day’s work amongst the rocks. RDCC

2 Mr & Mrs B G Mears – Glenmear Mcintyre, a light red brindle dog well up to size with good bone and nicely balanced. Excellent head with a nice dark eye, good stop, sound in mouth and a typical masculine expression. Good neck and shoulders, deep chest well ribbed, level topline and correct tail set. It was disappointing to find that, when put onto the floor; his movement didn’t meet my expectations.

3 Mr S Thompson – Castleline Barn Dance


Limit Dog – (3 entries – 1 abs)

1 Mrs S J Weinberger – Correnie Hurricane Fly, a very appealing red brindle dog with dark points; one I’ve admired from the ringside Excellent head with correct ear placing, a good stop, dark eye and required scissor bite. Everything fitted to the Breed Standard by being to the required ‘medium’ - in bone, leg, neck and coupling. Well bodied with both depth and spring to rib. Level topline with correct tail set. A quality dog that was well handled and moved soundly. Would have liked a touch more coat to have completed the image.

2 Miss A R Parker-Tucker – Uniquecottage Winsford, a wheaten brindle dog with good head enhanced by his attractive dark mask and ears. Good reach of neck running down into a level topline with correct tailset. Shown in a good coat of a nice length; has well angulated and hard muscled rear quarters. Like the earlier dog from this kennel found it to be lacking in confidence on the table but then again it may not have liked the venue or perhaps, even the judge; whatever, it did not put in the performance which I’ve seen at other shows.


Open Dog (3 entries – 2 abs)

1 Mrs S Kinton – Woodthorpe I Know The Code, a quality grey brindle dog of balanced proportions shown in a full double coat of good texture, sufficient bone and well bodied with good spring of rib. Excellent masculine head with an appealing expression, correct length of neck going down into good layback of shoulders, level topline and a good tail set. With strong drive from his rear, he still held his top line well on the move and with the ring to himself, put in a performance worthy of any CC winner. DCC


Veteran Bitch (1 entry)

1 Ms P Melia - Roachdee Treacle Bon Bon, a grey brindle bitch which one would doubt of being a veteran, she was so happy and lively. Has a very sweet head with small ears, bright eyes and a good mouth. Moved and showed well for her handler. BVB & BVIB


 Minor Puppy Bitch (3 entries – 1 abs)

1 Mr A & Mrs L & Miss A M Firth – Lentrica Black Star for Cairngold, at 7 months on the day, an attractive wheaten with a touch of brindle in her coat. Nice head with good stop, neat dark ears, correct eye and sound mouth. Good layback of shoulders, nicely bodied with level topline, correct coupling and a good tail set. Schooled and shown in good condition; she moved, holding her topline, soundly both ways. BPB & BPIB

2 Miss J H Smith – Cannwood Misty Dawn at Gethlee, another very nice wheaten bitch puppy of 8 months; nice head with good stop, neat dark ears, correct eye and sound mouth. Nicely balanced with a good profile and slightly heavier coated than 1st. But found her lacking in muscle tone; this is as bad as being too fat – both indicates that a dog is not in show condition and with what could have been a close decision to make; she lost out.


Puppy Bitch (1 entry – 1 abs)


Junior Bitch – (4 entries)

1 Mrs S Dolan – Glenrood Burlesque, a wheaten brindle bitch shown in good coat. Strong head with trace of black mask, deep stop, dark eye and correct mouth. Nice flow from neck to tail, good layback of shoulders, straight front, nicely ribbed, with correct coupling and well angulated rear.

2 Miss A R Parker-Tucker – Uniquecottage Florey, a very nice wheaten bitch, which I liked very much but coat not at its best. Excellent head with black mask and ears, decent stop, dark eye and good mouth. Straight front with good shoulder placement, level topline, enough coupling and well set on tail. Moved and showed well.

3 Mr S Tompson - Castleline Caladonian Lass. Res Mr S & Mrs E Short – Splintershill’s Amazing Grace to Glenchess


Novice Bitch (1 entry)

1 Mrs T Williams – Seveek Country Sunset, a very well balanced red, so good for size andtype, with excellent layback of shoulders, level topline, good tail set and shown in a good double coat. With the loss of a little weight she would be an even better prospect for the ring – her two siblings were both shown in hard condition and each gained a RCC.


Graduate Bitch (3 entries)

1 Mr & Mrs A Osborn – Tweslam Gimme Gimme Magic, a light red bitch shown in a good quality coat, balanced outline with correct front assembly, good spring of rib, level topline and good tail set. Moved soundly and responded well to her handler.

 2 Mr S & Mrs E Short – Uniquecottage Gold Avill to Glenchess, a promising youngster of 14 months; nice type with balanced proportions and correct angulations, good head with attractive expression. Showed, today, that she was lacking a little in experience yet believe her to be one with a decent future before her.

3 Ms P Melia - Roachdee Tickle Toffee


Post Graduate Bitch (3 entries)

1 Mr & Mrs A Osborn – Tweslam Born To Bewitch, a light red with dark points shown in a good quality coat. Good head with deep stop, well placed ears, dark eye. Good layback of shoulders, ample neck, level topline, good spring of rib, correct coupling. Moved positively and at one with her handler.

2 Ms P Melia - Carradine Minnies Magic, a dark brindle bitch of a nice size, decent head and good mouth, well bodied with good spring of rib, level topline and well set on tail. A steady mover and held her tail well.

3 Mr R & Mrs J Ballinger – Cloverbrook Coco Chanel


Limit Bitch (9 entries – 3abs) A very good class in which any one of four could have finished in first place under different judges.

1 Mrs J Keeves – Seveek Hopes ‘N’ Dreams JW Sh.CM, a red bitch of an excellent type and size and like her brother meets the three “A’s” – alert, agile and all there. Good head; stop; eye; mouth and expression; shown in hard condition and with a coat of good texture; lively, yet moved soundly. RBCC

2 Mr D & Mrs P Clarke – Lentrica Dolly Daydream JW, another which I have watched from the ringside and she didn’t disappoint me in any way. An appealing wheaten bitch with a lovely head with a delightful alert expression and constructed of balanced proportions. A delight to go over on the table and shown in a good coat and hard condition. Holds herself and her topline well on the move and does her handler proud.

3 Mrs G M Robinson – Cruzo Capriole Res Mr G Thomas – Tycadno Miss Moneypenny VHC Mrs S M Tutchings – Cloverbrook Touch of Class at Crowneast


Open Bitch (8 entries – 1 abs)

1 Mrs S Dolan – Glenrood Scheherazade - thank goodness it was easier to judge the bitch than to spell her name – took my eye in the introductory walk around the ring and a delight to have under one’s hands on at the table. Well constructed of balanced proportions and of a size which meets the Breed Standard in height and weight; turned out in a good coat and in a superb condition. Possesses a super head with a lovely feminine expression created from the alert sparkle which is in her dark eyes. Covered the ground effortlessly and moved positively with good reach and drive. BCC & BOB

2 Mrs G M Robinson – Ch Cruzo Corn Bunting, an appealing light red bitch of excellent quality and up to size; well worthy of her title. With its dark points, correctly positioned ears, dark eye and strong muzzle all going towards making for a very impressive head. Shown in a quality coat of good texture, well bodied with medium bone and good spring to her rib; she showed and moved positively for her handler.
