Midland Cairn Terrier Club 2004 Cairn Day

The Midland Cairn Terrier Club’s annual Cairn Day was held at Shirland Village Hall on Sunday 26th September.

The day started with a welcoming cuppa and biscuits served by Sue Braybrook (Brenda had been busy with her Cairn cookie cutter!). The first event was a trimming demonstration, four tables were set up, two for show trim manned by Brian Mears & Alison Wragg. Pam Bambridge & Maud Hawkes managing pet trim. This proved very popular with folks going from table to table picking up tips and skills.

After a delicious Ploughmans buffet lunch Linda Firth gave a very interesting and informative talk on an introduction to showing. This was followed by an informal question and answer type discussion.


The Junior handling classes judged by Pam Bambridge assisted by Monica Ball were as usual wonderful to watch. Winner of under eights was Thomas Foster and Rupert, the 8-11 years was won by Alex Cadogan with Lucy.


As you can see from the pictures, this years puppy walk for the under 6 month olds must have been the biggest ever!

As judge Julie Sharpe (Doonrae) put them all through their paces the hall was full of the sounds of oohs, aaahs and a few puddles. I think everyone there was pleased to see such quality pups and hopefully witnessing the debut of the odd champion or two.


Julie then judged the Puppy match for 6 to 12 months won by Mrs B Krzyskowski's Carrandulla Carousel (left), followed by the adult match which was won by Claire Houghton's Klarylise Lost & Found (right)
