Imported from Denmark in March of 1999 as a puppy, MACHO showed great promise as a youngster. He has more than fulfilled that promise. MACHO finished his championship with two major Specialty wins. He has accumulated several Best in Specialty Show awards, including the coveted Best of Breed at the C.T.C.A. National Specialty at Montgomery County K.C. in October, 2001. He was only the third Cairn Terrier in the history of the Montgomery County K. C. show to make the cut in the Group competition.
MACHO's greatest achievement by far, however, has been his success as a sire. Already, several of his offspring have earned their championships and many more are pointed and will complete their titles soon. MACHO stamps his get with his unmistakable reach and drive in their gaits. His daughter, FIONA (CAIRNCROFT QUITE A MIRACLE), won the C.T.C.A. National Sweepstakes in 2001. We have no doubt that other MACHO progeny will continue to accrue such achievements. His impact on the breed already is evident through these youngsters.
Our deep gratitude to the late Sonja Scheel, who bred MACHO's litter, and to her daughter, Tine Mathari (KENNEL McALLISTER) who raised the litter after her mother's death. Tine helped us with all the details to import MACHO and his litter sister, TESSA, and she has become a dear friend. We are so blessed to have this extraordinary dog. MACHO is co-owned and loved by Rebecca Stamps of MARQUEE CAIRNS, Trenton, Texas.
CH.CAIRNCROFT NIGHT HAWK (aka, HAWKINS -- born
During his show career, HAWKINS quickly completed his championship with all "majors". He was campaigned as a "special" during 2000 on a very limited basis, handled by his breeder/co-owner, and still ranked # 3 Cairn in the U.S. Now retired from showing, he stands at stud to approved bitches. We hope that his offspring will carry on his best qualities: a gorgeous head-piece, lovely hard coat texture and lovely outline and balance. HAWKINS is co-owned with Michael Bruggeman.
