Single breed open show 6th March 2010
Judge: Maxine Bennett (Maximal)
Firstly my sincere thanks to the Midland Cairn Terrier Club Committee for giving me the opportunity to judge my first Breed Open Show. I had a most enjoyable day at this well organised and friendly show and would like to thank all of the exhibitors who allowed me to judge their dogs. In many classes the decision between the first and second places was very close and gave me a good deal to think about.
Veteran Dog or Bitch (1)
1 Seveek Country Rambler to Svendalens. Dog, 8 years old shown in good condition with strong harsh coat. Good head with clear stop, dark eye and well furnished. Correct dentition. Moved well driving from the rear, holding topline on the move.
Minor Puppy Dog (1, 1 abs)
Puppy Dog (3)
1 Landbuck Tillisch. A well put together 10 month red puppy. Lovely head with good stop giving a true cairn expression. Correct dentition. Good deep rib with nice lay of shoulders and level topline. Tail well set on. Great movement driving well from the rear and true in front. Won this class on movement & expression. Was pleased to give him Best Puppy in Show.
2 Carradine Crackaway Jack. Another well put together puppy who showed throughout. Nice head and expression, good mouth. Good deep rib and lay of shoulders, excellent bone. Shown in strong coat. Moved well holding topline. A close decision between 1 & 2 however I preferred the movement and head of 1.
3 Winetta Sir Percy
Junior Dog (4)
1 Brenndarcy Trouble at Mill. A well turned out dog giving a good outline. Strong male head with dark eye and correct ear placement. Correct dentition. Moved the best in this class, driving from the rear. Up on his toes showing well.

3 Milindack What News Watson

2 Tweesdisle Stargazer. Wheaten dog with nice head and expression. Moved freely holding topline.
Postgraduate Dog (6, 1 abs)
1 Cannwood Zipper at Thackeston. Grey brindle dog, excellent head with good stop, nice dark eye and correct dentition. Lovely expression. Good deep rib with well laid back shoulders and good bone. Good length of neck. Level topline and well set on tail. Great movement, driving from the rear with straight front. A well put together dog shown in good coat, smart but not overdone. Well up on his toes and enjoying showing off his true cairn spirit. A very close decision between 1 & 2 as these were both two lovely dogs. Continued showing throughout and earned a well deserved Best Dog and Best in Show.
2 Glenmear Marauder. I was very taken with this dog who had so many good points. Lovely head, good stop, correct dentition, great cairn expression. Good construction with deep rib, lay of shoulders and bone. Coat well presented and again not overdone. A strong mover from the rear with great drive. I felt he lacked some of the showmanship of 1 but was pleased to be able to award him Reserve Best Dog and Reserve Best in Show.
