Midland Cairn Terrier Club Open Show, August 3rd 2002

Show Secretary Ann Wall, Liz Longdin, Geir Flycky Pederson (Judge) with BIS Wellingley What Now



The Midland Cairn Club held an Open Show at Shirland.  Judging a breed club show is always interesting and the support this show had from exhibitors made it even more exciting.  A super entry of 102, although somewhat depleted by a number of absentees, made it a very interesting occasion for me.


I have taken an interest in this breed for as long as I have been involved with terriers and this involvement now approaches its 45th anniversary.  Needless to say there were many excellent dogs and many difficult decisions to make.  One or two decisions I would have been happy to reverse at any time, but to me they were right at the very moment I made them. 


The natural appearance called for in the Standard gives a lot of room for different interpretations, but I do believe every exhibitor wants to make the most of their dogs and it is a very fine line between trimming and over trimming!  All my top winners were well presented.  Best in Show was Wellingley What Now, young bitch with a super temperament, on all toes all the time, lovely head and expression, balanced neck, excellent body and bone, moved well and she certainly made the most of what she got, well handled and presented: Reserve Best In Show, Glenchess Night Owl, very mature and has lovely outline, feminine head, good neck, body and topline, moved and showed well, so well presented, not a hair out of place; Best Opposite Sex; Lockelsh Pegno D’Amore, an attractive masculine dog, nice head, good neck, body and bone, excellent coat, moved well and showed himself off with style and temperament in his class.  When time came for the BIS competition, he seemed to have lost interest; & Best Puppy, Lockelsh Expect the Best.


Veteran Dog or Bitch (7, 2 absent)

  1. Parker Tucker’s Ch/Am Ch Uniquecottage Bright Gold, nearly 8, which is of course still young for this breed, lovely dog, masculine head, good neck, moved and showed so well and presented without a hair out of place.
  2. White’s Kervaig Picador, strong masculine dog, touch overweight.  Good proportions, tailset, bone and rear angulation, good coat and pleasant temperament.

Minor Puppy Dog (4, 1 absent)

  2. Miller’s Brandarsaig Evergreen, charming baby, a nice head, good neck, standing makes a nice picture, full of life and I believe he has got most of the essentials.  With more training and experience think he could do well.

Mears’ Glenmear Mirren, dark brindle, real quality bitch to go over on the table, nice head, excellent neck, good body, bone and overall proportions, the sweetest of temperaments but not at all interested in showing off her many virtues on the ground.  Her pattern of movement is good.  When she decides to take dog shows seriously, should do well.

Rather poor class

  1. Purvis’ Wilsummer Sea Lavender, dark brindle, feminine head, short neck, acceptable body and rear angulation.

Post Graduate Bitch (7, 2 absent)

  1. Dolan’s Glenrood Forever Beauty, very nice, very feminine with a lovely head and expression, good body and bone, tailset and hindquarters, moved well, real showgirl.

  5. Pearson’s Cloverbrook Corona Cracker


Mid Limit Bitch (8, 4 absent)

  4. Clairevona Mlenilud Valley


Open Bitch (9, 3 absent)
