ROY TESTER (Judge)         

I had a most enjoyable day judging the Joint Cairn Terrier Club's Open Show hosted this year by the Midland CTC.  I found a number of light eyes, uneven mouths and indistinct stops but on the upside  movement was better than anticipated. 


My BIS Carradine Toblerone embodies the characteristics which originally attracted me to the breed. I liked his size, overall  balance, firm construction and flowing movement but above all  his typical outgoing character.  RBIS Glenchess Wild Echo is again very typical with an attractive head, keen piercing expression, well-toned body & quarters, stretching well forward on the move.  BPIS Lockelsh Whats It All About was a clear winner, in lovely condition and puppy coat, built on clean cut lines, moving as well as any on the day', a most promising prospect.

pleasing picture, showy tail wagger  needs to firm up when moving.
