Championship Dog Show, Saturday 9th March 2019
I wish to convey my thanks to the Crufts Show Committee for inviting me to Judge the Cairn Terriers at this most prestigious Show, where has the 28 years gone since I first awarded CC's in the breed at WELKS in 1991.
It was also a very poignant day as it is my late fathers 100th birthday on the day.
My thanks to the exhibitors from home and abroad for their entries a number travelling very long distances to attend the show, plus gratitude to my Show Stewards, Karen and Robyn for their input throughout the day, thank you.
Also a further highlight of the day was a visit to the show ring from the Kennel Clubs President, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, GVCO. During which time we had an interesting and informed conversation about our beloved Cairn Terrier.
As a general overview of the entry I felt the quality of the bitches outweighed that of the dogs, there were however, a few incorrect mouths, narrow heads with little or no stop, lack of muscle tone, close and loose back ends plus the odd upright shoulder, some exhibits spoilt the tops of their exhibits tails with scissors.
On a positive note temperaments were spot on, most coats were correct, balance, outline, layback and front movement greatly improved coupled with good legs and feet.
The principle winners were praiseworthy in all departments.

Dog CC and BOB, Danielsson's Uniquecottage Wild Dill
