New American Champion!!

We at Cairnisle are so pleased to announce that Dallas (Gch Cairnisles Sharp Dressed Man) Is now an American Champion.  We went to Ann Arbor Michigan  March 8-10  where Dallas picked up his second 5 point major on Saturday, and his third 5 point Major on Sunday as well as Best of Breed  over 80 Cairn Terriers including Specials from the Bred By class. We are so proud of Dallas, and plan to take him out the rest of this year as well to see if we can capture #1 Cairn in Canada for a second time!


2018 was a quiet year for Dallas. We took a break from the show ring for him, and focused instead on Nike, (Cairnisle Runs With Wolves).  Nike did not disappoint. his first show in 2018, Nike went Best of Breed at the AKC winter classic second day in, and Winners Dog the third day. All in all we finished Nike in 3 weekends, and he now  has his Canadian Championship.
we did make one weekend exception for Dallas in 2018, and that was for the AKC Summer Classic. Dallas was entered into the CTCC regional show under Breeder Judge Margaret Jones, and won Best of Breed at this Specialty. Dallas still had his Mojo!

First show of the Year, and its amazing!

January 31, 2017
First an update to last year.  We did not end up #1 Cairn in Canada, Dallas ended up #2  and 50 points short of being #1.  So this year we hit the road again!.  First how this year.  3 days at the AKC Winter Classic shows at beautiful Spruce Meadows Calgary Alberta.  Dallas Out performed  himself right off the start!  First day Dallas received a Grp 3 under Judge Cec Ringstrom.  
Day 2 saw Dallas get a Grp 1 under Respected Breeder Judge Peggy Mcillwaine, Only to go on and receive a Reserve Best in Show Under Judge Peggy Gutierrez-Otero.  We were elated to be recognised and I was so Happy Dallas was showing himself so well!
Day 3 Dallas received another Grp 1 under Judge Peggy Gutierrez Otero, and he went on to win his FIRST EVER BEST IN SHOW, under Judge Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine.
 A renowned Cairn Terrier Breeder Judge! I will include her comments:
"Today I did best in show and for the first time ever I awarded a cairn terrier top honors. I'd be thrilled to take him home with me, he would fit very well in our breeding program if we were still breeding cairns."
Thank you Peggy for this wonderful win.  

We have had a wonderful Fall showing season!
