Cairnisle Cairn Terriers


In  1994 I bought Am/CanCH. Cairngorm's MacGuyver ( Angus) from Jamie Abhalter. Out of him we produced 3 homebred Champions. 

He went on to become #4 Cairn Terrier in Canada  that year in  1995.

In the fall of 1995 I entered Angus  in a Terrier Classic open to Group 1 winning Dogs only, And he won the classic!

Angus went on to produce many Canadian Champions for those who used him at stud service.

All these Dogs shown here  are offspring of Angus. Angus was bred by Nick Furillo and Co-Owned with Jamie Abhalter in the USA


Am/Canch Cairngorm's MacGuyver

Angus I must say had to be my favorite dog to play with and to love. I had him only 3 days and we had already bonded. He went on to win many Group 1 placements and was Number 4 Cairn in Canada, the first year I had him. 

The wonderful thing about Angus is he passed on wonderful heads, and toplines as well as strong rears and fronts. As well most of Angus's progeny  have inherited  wonderful long lives with no  major health concerns, with the majority reaching the age of 15 in good health. He truly was a wonderful dog. 

Thank you Nick and Jamie for sharing him with me!

Ch Cairnisles Blue Moon  ( Critterkins Onyxisle X Am/Can Ch. Cairngorms Macguyver) (Loonie) Owned by Sheila Bremaud.

Started her show career with a group 4, and finished her Championship with a group 4 and a Best in Breed over several Specials as well as a BPISS. A huge achievement! 

Loonie as she was affectionately called, was exactly that "looney". Many an hour was spent with her going under things to scratch her back when we would not do it for her. Its not hat she had a skin issue, only that she loved being scratched, and when she realized she could do it herself, she never stopped.  She was my ball  player, and a wonderful show dog.

CH. Cairnisles Clearly Canadian ( Critterkins Onyxisle X am/Can Ch. Cairngorms Macguyver) (CC) Was a Bitch I had sent to the USA as a Bitch back for her mother. She is a full sister to Ch Cairnisles Blue Moon.   I got her back to show when she was 2 years old, and entered her into 1 weekend of shows and finished her with 3-4 point majors in one weekend.

The Highlow dogs (Bred by Janie Armstrong)  were very special. The first breeding only produced 1 girl Kyra. So  we tried again, and got 3 pups the second time.  Each of these pups has completed their CANCH.   Kyra Passed away just recently at the age of 15. all the pups from this litter have had a long life, and wonderful show career.  At this time April 2011, her litter mates are all going strong, and are all 15 years old now.

Was lovingly shown by Jamie Abhalter to her AMCH  and Linda Smith showed her to her CANCH  in Canada.  She had many group placements.

KD had a wonderfully bubbly personality, and showed off her agility in the ring oftens by  jumping up in the air and turning around mid-air, landing and looking up at me, asking.." so did you like that one"?
