The Midland Cairn Terrier Club held an open show at Shirland Village Hall. There was a very good entry with few absentees. Quality in the bitches was higher than that of the dogs, I found only two incorrect mouths, although in general teeth were much smaller than is called for in the Standard. Muzzles in quite a few exhibits lacked depth and breadth, which altered expression. Rear movement seems to be improving although in several cases could be enhanced by exercise. A good few lacked muscle tone.  BIS was Spawyche Elizabethian Jet, showy medium sized gr/br of correct type, nice head, expression, correct assembly, nice length of body, good legs & feet, correct coat, sound purposeful mover. In the challenge for BIS just had the edge over the bitch in firmness of body. RBIS Curtisey Salarmi, wheaten, beautiful type bitch of correct size, good neck, well made body, maturing nicely, moved out soundly, fore and aft, will watch both their careers with interest.
