NORTH OF IRELAND CAIRN TERRIER CLUB – Sept 30th
I wish to thank the North of Ireland Cairn Terrier Club for inviting me to judge their 37th CH, show held at Sixmile Leisure Center, Ballyclare. My thanks are also extended to my stewards who ably assisted me. The show was well run by a small but enthusiastic committee.
I enjoyed my time judging as there was a pleasant atmosphere and the exhibitors accepted my decisions with good grace.A numerically small entry awaited me but there were some quality exhibits to go over.The main fault that I found was poor toplines. They should have been firmer especially on the move.Toplines show how well a dog is constructed.
Ist. Gut’s Iceman from Deerpark,11mth old red,well formed head, mouth, eye and ear placement and coat quality all correct. Could be firmer in front movement but better behind, covered the ground well with a driving action. Topline could have been better as his tailset is a little low.
Junior Dog. 2
A very close decision here.
!st. Miller’s Cornton Fyne Fettle,Ligth wh br. pleasing in head formation with well placed ears and good mouth though I would have liked a slightly darker eye. He moved well in front better here than 2nd but was narrower behind. My decision came down to showmanship and this one showed and had a firmer topline on the move.
2nd Lamb and Saltmarsh’s Birselaw Come Dancing with Macmoon, dk wh br. With a classic head and ex expression everything correct. Not as firm in front as 1st but better behind. Moved at a brisk pace, maybe too fast for this dog as he lost his topline at times and seemed to stick his neck out losing his good shape. No doubt these two will change places many times.
Post Grad Dog 2(2)
Limit Dog –2
1st Hogarty’s Cadagio Take That, wh br.correct skull,good stop,eyes and well placed ears. Handles well on the table with a dead level topline, correct tailset,forechest and shoulders all pleasing. Good body proportions giving a balanced outline. Presented in good textured coat. Moved with driving action, true both ways. An accomplished showman Happy to award him the C C .
2nd Lamb and Saltmarsh’sBirselaw Dark Charmer for Macmoon, dk br.a smaller exhibit with a typical head and expression, good type, carried his topline well, sound mover who showed all out.
1st Hogarty’s CH.IR CH.Cadagio Don’t Stop Me Now, dk br. An impressive dog and a very worthy CH.Masculine head with good expression. Well formed body shown in ex all round condition. Level topline held well at all times. Showed all out to win this good class. Res C C. lost out for the C C as I felt the younger dog was a better and freer mover. But a close call.
2nd Alexander’s Stirlingview Shake the Dice, another impressive dog who makes the most of himself, handles well on the table with everything correct. Balanced body, presented in good coat and condition. Moved well both ways but today I felt on viewing him on the ground that he had too much hair around his neck which spoilt the clean outline that I felt on the table. This contributed to my decision here---a temporary fault easily corrected.
3rdGut’s Leroy of Black Rock’s—another good dog with an excellent head.
