He has a gorgeous head, plenty of harsh coat, level top-line and dark pigment.
Urchin won a 4 point major the day following the Terrier Assoc. of Oregon Group show, under noted Cairn Breeder/Judge Lydia Coleman Hutchinson. 

His third major was earned at the Northern California Terrier Assoc. 

Urchin is completely owner handled, mostly by Marie and a little bit of help from Tom.
