Midland Cairn Terrier Club

Single breed open show 14th March 2009

Judge: Helen Pearson


I would like to thank the officers and committee of the Midland Cairn Terrier Club for giving me the opportunity to judge this show.  As always there was a happy, relaxed atmosphere, and I thoroughly enjoyed my day.

Sincere thanks should also go to all the exhibitors who gave me a good entry and allowed me to judge their dogs.  All temperaments were excellent and overall quality was high. Some classes presented me with some difficult decisions.  Thank you.


Veteran dog/bitch (4)

1)     Petts’ Doonrae Dragoon A well presented nine year old dark brindle dog who impressed with his typical head and expression. Good bite. Straight front and well balanced; well muscled hind quarters and in excellent condition.  Moved soundly. BV


2)     Jennings’ Doonrae Youthfulness  A ten year old dark brindle bitch, good head and expression with correctly shaped eyes and neat ears. Correct bite. Preferred overall picture of 1)


3) Jennings’ Doonrae Virtuoso


Minor Puppy Dog (4)


A lovely class of puppies

1) Shannon, Storr and Culliford’s  Brenndarcy Trouble at Mill  A delightful six month old puppy at his first show.  Masculine head, straight front, good reach of neck flowing into correctly placed shoulders and a level topline and correct tail set. Very well proportioned.  Moved confidently.  Just needs to tighten in front.  Showed well. Will watch his progress with interest.


2)Peers’ Tweedisle That Lone Guy  A seven month old wheaten puppy with a lovely head and expression and desirable dark mask. Well presented and well balanced with good bone, a level topline and correct tailset.  Promising.


3)Mears’ Glenmear Marauder


Puppy Dog (4,1a)

1)     Wall’s Cloverbrook Ray of Sunshine Over Shearwater  A very self assured nine month old red dog.  Superb head and expression, excellent bite.  Correct front with good bone and correct reach of neck.  Well placed shoulders running into excellent topline which was held on the move.  Coat of excellent quality. Presented in very good condition and moved freely both ways responding well to handler.  An exciting prospect. Best Puppy in Show


2)     Warne’s Spirebrook Dawn Raider Liked this grey brindle nine month old puppy a lot. Different type to 1) but another excellent head and expression.  Good bone, correct reach of neck, well balanced and correct bend of stifle.  Moved well both ways.  Coat just on the blow. Unlucky to come up against 1) in such fine fettle.


3)     Tweedisle Speedy Ric Shaw



Junior Dog (5) A strong class

1)     Inett and Harrison’s Noncom Inett Tu Winnit with Carradine  Masculine wheaten dog who showed with verve and enthusiasm.  Typical head with good bite and powerful jaws.  Good shoulders and well balanced angulation and an excellent coat. His powerful hind quarters enabled him to move around the ring with drive. A stylish exhibit who worked well with his handler to take RBD


2)     Marshall’s Strathgarten Crackerjack  A smart, alert red dog , very well balanced with a typical head, excellent mouth and neat ears. Strong topline and tailset. A very attractive dog, preferred movement of 1) on the day.

2)     Parkin’s Roachdee Mystery of the Moon  A two year old cream dog who showed happily on the day and enjoyed his day out.  Good coat and well balanced; correct mouth. Co operated well with handler.  Would have preferred him a little larger all over and with a more typical expression

1)     King and Leighton’s Carradine Maybe the Moon at Harkenleigh  An alert, wheaten dog with dark points.  Good head and mouth, correctly placed shoulders leading to level topline. Good angulations and strong hindquarters. Good size. A sound mover both ways who responded very well to his handler.  Pushed hard for RBD. Keep persevering.


2)Barney’s Alfie Lunar Hopper  attractive dark brindle dog, well balanced, correct mouth, strong muzzle, well proportioned.  Moved steadily.  Preferred the overall substance and showmanship of 1)

Good front and rear angulation which enabled him to move seemingly effortlessly around the ring, aided by very well muscled hind quarters..  Never stopped showing.  BD, BOS


     2)  Mara’s Tanteazle Tailor Cut   An attractive dark brindle dog with a typical expression, good stop and correct mouth.  Well balanced with correct tail set and in good condition.  Lacked drive on the move today.


Open Dog (1)

1)     Peers’ Tweedisle Guy Mannering  Dark brindle with a typical outline.  Correct length of neck and correctly placed shoulders flowed into a level topline.  Well handled and presented with a correct coat.  Stood alone but most certainly a very worthy, quality winner.

I was spoilt for choice!

1) Fife’s Andrum Peace Treaty  A very feminine cream bitch, beautifully presented.  Well furnished, typical head with delightful expression with a hint of mischief. Well angulated and very well balanced with correct tail set.  However, shown in profuse coat. The best mover in this class today – will watch her progress with interest


2)     Waites’ Svendalens Crazy Diamond. Another beautiful puppy bitch, only six months old, sympathetically handled to her best advantage. Super coat for one so young, good head with strong muzzle and good bite. Sound throughout, presented a typical outline.


3)     Peers’ Tweedisle Silver Lady


Puppy Bitch (11,3a)

Once again, a very strong class

Good straight front and correct bend of stifle. Like her litter brother in Puppy Dog, you have to go over this bitch to appreciate how well made she is; A quality puppy.  Despite very tough competition I could not deny her Best Puppy Bitch . Well done.


      2) Day’s Trekhilli Piccalilli  A feminine dark brindle bitch, well balanced with typical head and expression.  Moved well both ways.

An excellent class


1)     Felters and Rumens Landbuck Jazz Hands  An extremely well balanced feminine cream bitch.  Good head with correct stop, strong muzzle and good bite, neat ears, correctly placed.  Good reach of neck and level topline.  Correct front and rear angulations ensured that she was able to move freely around the ring with drive. Well presented with a super coat.  A lovely bitch.  She was seriously considered for top honours today but lost enthusiasm in the challenge.


2)     Burgin’s Noncom Miss Hat He Chewed  This seventeen month old bitch pushed 1) very hard – Typical head with good bite, good reach of neck and level topline. Good bend of stifle and strong hindquarters ensured she moved with drive around the ring and was shown in excellent condition.  Well presented with a good coat.  Expertly handled to her very best advantage. It was a close decision between 1) and 2) but I preferred the balance of the winner.


3)     Shannon and Storr’s Brenndarcy Button It


Maiden Bitch (5,2a)


1)     Clarke’s Lentrica Daddies Girl  Nine month old cream bitch, very feminine and with a very appealing, mischievous expression, aided by her dark points. Well  balanced and compact, with correct angulations, a level topline and correct tailset.  Particularly liked her rear action; needs to tighten in front.

     2)   Newton’s Strathinver Sheenagh   A lovely bitch – feminine and well balanced with typical expression, sound throughout.  What a shame she didn’t feel like walking up and down today!


Post Graduate Bitch (4,1a)


1)     Moseley’s Carradine Sapphire at Spawyche  A beautifully presented, feminine grey brindle bitch who stood out in this class today.  Super head with good stop, strong muzzle and good bite, finished with full furnishings.  Very expressive eyes. Very well balanced with correct angulations front and rear.  Moved correctly both ways. Lovely coat.  Pushed very hard for top honours today.

3)     Day’s Trekhilli Chilli Pepper at Tre – Ki


Mid Limit Bitch (3,1a)


1)     Waites’ Svendalens Lucky in Love  Compact and well balanced bitch with a good head and typical expression.  Correct lay of shoulders leading to a level topline, however coat just needing slight attention for best presentation.

1)  Clarke’s Conundrum Sweeter for Me at Lentrica   A truly striking dark brindle bitch with a super ring presence. Excellently presented and exquisitely balanced.  Impressed on the table, presenting a superb outline.  Good to go over, fabulous head with good stop, muzzle and correct bite.
