North of Ireland Cairn Terrier Club - Championship Show My thanks to the Club and Committee for the invitation to judge their Club show. 

This is a show I have attended for over 30 years. This year it was tinged with sadness as a great supporter of this club was Yvonne Catto who sadly passed away.

Post Graduate Bitch 2 1a  

1st Keegans Golden Shadow of Loughend red bitch shown in really short coat, her new coat was just coming in and was good texture. She would have benefitted from more coat and head furnishing to complete her head. Good eye neat ear correct bite could have more stop and fill under the eye . Nice reach of neck carrying too much weight which affected her topline on the move she is very focused on her owner.
