I thoroughly enjoyed judging the Cairns at this open show which was hosted by the Midland Cairn Terrier Club.  There was a friendly atmosphere, it was a lovely venue and the Officers and Committee were very welcoming. There were enough dogs to make it interesting and my main winners were, in my opinion, quality dogs who would hold their own in most company. It was lovely to see some terrier temperament and attitude on display which really does present the dogs to their best advantage.  


Class 1        VEteran Dog or Bitch              Entries: 5     Absentees: 1


1st        Birselaw Fable of Macmoon ShCm-Nice showy dog with a good temperament , DECENT  coat, ok in head, a touch narrow behind. Won the class on showmanship.

2nd Dandi Boy Spud-Decent sort. Good mover. Was a touch lethargic.


Class 2      Minor Puppy D               Entries:  1    

1st        Winetta What The Heck-Promising youngster. Good typy baby, nicely headed, decent topline, good proportions. Will need to strengthen a bit in rear.


Class 3      PUPPY DOG                  Entries: 2     Absentees: 1


1st       BRENDARCY TINSOLDAT-Super type and could have coped with some competition. He has lovely bone and substance, a decent coat for his age and is very animated. Shows a lot of promise. His lovely rear won him the best puppy dog award.



Class 4      JUNIOR DOG                 Entries: 2    


1st        TWEEDISLE TUGMAN-nice sort with a good outline, coat coming through, was a bit unsettled. Nice headed boy.

2nd       SVENDALENS INTO MISCHIEF-heavier sort and coat needs to improve. When he settled he looked a lot better.


Class 5         MAIDEN DOG             Entries: 0    



Class 6        POST GRADUATE DOG            Entries: 3     Absentees: 0


1st        SEVEEK I SPIED THAT DREAM-the best type in the class with a really good head and a lovely outline and proportions. When he did settle his movement was good. Should have a decent future.  




2ND      GLENMONT NICODEMUS –nice looking dog with a good jacket of good texture. Equally good proportions but does not have the lovely head of the winner.





Class 7        LIMIT DOG                                Entries: 3    

1st        BRENNDARCY LORD MARMADUKE AVEC STRATHGARTEN-an eyecatcher and very much my sort of Cairn. Lovely outline and proportions, really good head and expression, super topline, lovely tail and all terrier in attitude. Coat still coming in and that was really the decider between him and the best dog. Res dog and one for the future I would think.

2nd       CARRADINE MY MATE MATTHEWS-nice sort, well presented coat of good quality, a touch longer than the winner and not quite the tailset of the winner but lots to like about him. 




Class 8        OPEN DOG                                  Entries: 2     Absentees: 0


1st        CH CARRADINE GEORGE FLIES WITH HARKINLEIGH JW- another eyecatcher who caught my eye as soon as he came in, well presented and handled to advantage, masculine, super proportions and really good in profile standing and moving. Very typical head and expression. Lovely front. A touch narrow behind but his overall quality took him through to best dog and then to a well- deserved BIS. 

2nd        RENSHAW THERE AND BACK AGAIN UNDER MACMOON SHCM –showy dog and a nice sort, good head, good coat and decent texture. A bit lower to the ground than the winner.  




Class 9       SPECIAL BEGINNERS DOG            Entries: 2     Absentees: 0


1st        MIGHTY REARRAGER AT MOSSPUR-Was 3rd in limit. In good coat and condition. A bit unsettled on the move but deserved his placing here.

2ND      CLOVERBROOK HARRIS TWEED-one from the veteran class. Coat was a touch sparse. Smart outline and showed well.




Class 10    MINOR PUPPY BITCH                   Entries: 4     Absentees: 0


1ST      WINETTA I’VE GOT A FEELING-cracking type, super outline and a lovely outgoing temperament, really nice to go over on the table, pretty head, decent tail set and her overall quality shone through. Finished best puppy in show against some other nice puppies.







2ND      CANNWOOD MISTY DAWN AT GETHLEE-nice sort, and another lovely type, a touch up on the leg and not as assured as the winner but very promising. 



Class 11    PUPPY BITCH                     Entries: 3     Absentees: 0


1ST      BRENNDARCY CLOUDBUSTING-another lovely type from this kennel, has substance but still retains her femininity, good head, decent proportions, good topline and nice tailset. Moved quite soundly.

2ND      CARRADINE HERE COMES DOLLY-a bit in between at the moment, not quite the bone or outline of the winner. Will look better with maturity.


Class 12    JUNIOR BITCH                   Entries: 0    




Class 13    MAIDEN BITCH                               Entries: 1     Absentees: 0


1ST      WINETTA WISHIN AND HOPIN –really pretty puppy with a beautiful head and expression, nice coat well presented, good temperament. Not quite as good in topline as the winners of the previous 2 classes but shows lots of promise. 




Class 14    POST GRADUATE BITCH            Entries: 5     Absentees: 0


1ST      LENTRICA DOLLY DAYDREAM-I was surprised to see a girl of this quality in post graduate. Absolutely bang on for type, ultra- feminine, super proportions, really lovely head, good front and rear and moved well from all angles. Well presented and handled. A well deserved BB and ultimately Res BIS making a lovely duo with the dog.

2ND      SEVEEK COUNTRY SUNSET-slightly stronger girl all through, lovely temperament and a good mover when she settled. Coat just coming in.



Class 15    LIMIT BITCH                                     Entries: 3     Absentees: 0


1ST      SEVEEK HOPES N CREAMS JW SHCM-super type and looked lovely in stance. Assertive, lovely head, feminine but with decent bone, super proportions, good mover when she settled. Was close up for BB as she is of top quality. Res BB. 



2ND      BRENNDARCY MOONSTRUCK –Good sort, decent head, not quite the coat of the winner which made her look a touch leggy. Good sort. 



Class 16    OPEN BITCH                                   Entries: 4     Absentees: 0


1ST      BRENNDARCY MAID IN HEAVEN-won the class as overall she was the most typical, nice jacket, good proportions, ok in head and moved quite well.  

2ND      GLENMEAR SPROXTON LASS OF GETHLEE – bigger girl and looked a touch long cast, good temperament.



Class 17    SPECIAL BEGINNERS BITCH       Entries: 3     Absentees: 0


1ST      SEVEEK COUNTRY SUNSET-2nd from the post grad class

2ND      SVENDALENS MEMOIRE CHERIE-nice headed bitch and cooperated better here than in her earlier class.

Critique on "Special Awards" Classes

I would like to thank the Joint Cairn Terrier Clubs for inviting me to judge the Special Award Classes at their open show. I would also like to express my thanks on behalf of all new, and novice judges for this excellent initiative which gave me the chance to go over some lovely Cairns. Mostly I would like to thank the exhibitors for entering under me and for accepting my decisions with such good grace.


An excellent class full of lovely puppies.  All of the puppies in this class were promising and I’m sure they will do a lot of winning.

1.      Percy’s  Winetta I’ve Got A Feeling - 7 month old brindle bitch puppy. Excellent construction, well angulated fore and aft, good top line, held on the move and good tail set.  Very nice head with good stop, correct bite, lovely eyes and expression. Excellent coat. Moved very well, close decision with second.

2.      Percy’s Winetta Wishin and Hopin - Another lovely 7 month old brindle bitch puppy. The same comments as the winner apply. I just preferred the head and expression of the winner.

3.      Canwood Misty Dawn At Gethlee



1.       Firth’s Cairngold Clementina -  Brindle bitch. Nice for size and balance, well-constructed, moved and showed well. She has a nice head with lovely eyes and expression, good top line with correct tail set. Good coat of correct texture.

2.      Seveek Country Sunset -  Red brindle bitch of a bigger build. Lovely head, deep stop, correct bite. Strongly made with good bone. Preferred the size and balance of the winner.

3.      Birselaw Dark Charmer.



1.       Clarke’s Lentrica Dolly Daydeam JW -  Wheaten bitch. She has a stunning head, excellent coat, correct construction and was the best mover of the day. Her movement was a joy to watch. She showed so well, always up on her toes and alert.

2.      Birselaw Fable of Macmoon ShCM – Strongly made male with a lovely masculine head. Good Bone and topline , coat of correct texture, showed and moved well.

3.       Dandi Boy Spud
