The Collie Association
Championship Show 25th November 2018


My thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge at this friendly well run show; also many thanks to my stewards for keeping the ring running so smoothly.
I was very much looking forward to this appointment and was very pleased with my entry and the quality present. I was spoilt for choice in many classes and delighted with my final line up.
My co judge and I were unable to agree on best of breed so the referee Mr Trevor Haywood was required; he chose the dog Multi Int Ch One Extraordinary Blu Di Cambiano. We did agree on all further awards; reserve best of breed was the bitch Ch Beldones Fit for Fun, best puppy in breed was the bitch Riverside Song Xtra Sweet at Rahlissa and best veteran in breed went to the bitch Amalie Let Me Be at Collingvale.
