Eddie wins 1st in Yearling Dog &
May wins 1st in Yearling Bitch + the Bitch Reserve CC
@ Windsor Championship Show under breed specialist Judge Mrs Sue Wilkinson
~
CRITIQUE - 'Warwick's Cairnstorm First Edition - quality youngster, beautiful yet masculine head, excellent front, good lay of shoulder, strong bone, good topline, correct width through stifle, moves with an easy active stride, very promising, one to watch for the future'.
~
CRITIQUE - 'Warwick's Cairnstorm Florence May - my notes start "lovely, lovely bitch" and she is quality all through, from her beautiful head and expression, into a well arched neck, into a good lay of shoulder, well sprung ribs & deep brisket, she holds her head very proudly on the move, super muscles front & rear, add to this a fluid ground covering movement. Delighted to award her the RCC, considered her seriously for the ticket, but she still has some maturing to do, as she should at under 2 years of age, but CC's will follow for this quality girl. RCC'.
