Critique for the Joint Cairn Terrier Clubs Show, 5th August, 2006 at Shirland Village Hall.


 I would like to thank the Midland Cairn Terrier Club Committee for inviting me to judge the show, and the exhibitors present and all those who entered. Thanks also to Maud Hawkes and Alan Stephinson for doing an excellent job as Ring Stewards.


Overall, I found the quality of entry was of a good standard, although a high percentage lacked quality movement, front and rear, and in many of these, muscle tone was poor, with weak and open pads. Having said that, many of the exhibits showed quality free movement, well muscled quarters, with thick strong pads.


Class 1, Veteran Dog, (7)

1st Wall’s Shearwater Ah Jim Lad, dark brindle with a very lively nature,  showed well, moved with drive having strong muscular quarters. Ears well set on, and eyes wide apart. Well sprung ribs and a nice level back

2nd Jenning’s Doonrae Virtuoso, dark brindle, moved well both front and rear, typical cairn expression, with excellent reach of neck.


Class 2; Minor Puppy Dog (1)

1st Tracey’s Retacy Just For Fun, red, typical cairn expression, coat in reasonable condition, but short, and he carried his tail well. He didn’t move well, but at 6 months, he has plenty of developing ahead


Class 3; Puppy Dog (2,1a)

1st Saich’s Lindcoly High Flyer, wheaten, with strong rear movement, good mouth, with strong large teeth. Like the Minor Puppy, he still needs some maturing, and is somewhat out of proportion at 10 months. Best Puppy Dog.


Class 4; Junior Dog (7,2a)

1st Cameron’s Stryveling Rob Ruadh, well named dog with a nice red coat, although short on the day. Expression was typical with eyes set well apart with a strong definite stop, ears well carried with nice dark points. He was both lively and alert in the ring, and moved with drive front and rear, with well muscled quarters. Good bend of stifle.

2nd Grainger’s Devil in Disguise, red, although like the first, had a short coat on the day. Moved well at the rear, although front movement let him down when compared to 1


Class 5; Maiden Dog (2)

1st Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Spellbinder, wheaten with a strong double coat, strong quarters and a firm topline. Nice dark points on his ears. Moved freely both front and rear. 

2nd Saich’s Lindcoly High Flyer


Class 6; Novice Dog (4,1a)

1st Shannon & Storr’s Brenndarcy Sundance Kid, wheaten. Coat in great condition with a nice harsh outer coat and a nice soft close undercoat, Dark points on his ears and muzzle. Good length of back, with a nice reach of neck. He moved well both front and rear.

2nd Buttress’s Nutshki Boy Walton, red, nicely presented and showed well, good level back, and nice reach of neck, good length of leg, and his movement was strong, but not quite as free flowing as 1.
