When I planned this litter, I hoped for a nice dog to keep and I wasn’t disappointed. He’s growing up as a piece, with a super expression and good, sound movement. He was Best Minor Puppy in Show at East Anglian Collie open, then Best Puppy, Reserve Best of Breed and Puppy Group 1 at Dunstable open followed by Best Puppy Dog at WELKS.

Dexter had a Dream day at Birmingham National Championship show by winning not only Best Puppy in Breed but also the Reserve Dog CC aged 8 months under the all-rounder, Stuart Mallard. Truly a day to remember!

Since then, Dexter has been consistently well placed at all shows attended, with a further Best Puppy at Border Union and East of England, and Best Puppy Dog awards at SKC and Windsor before deciding to change his coat. Towards the end of the year he returned and been consistently well placed at shows attended.

He finished his junior career by coming 4th at the British Collie Club’s Junior of the Year, and being announced as 3rd in the Ladypark points competition.

2018 was quite a quiet year for Dexter as he needed time to grown up, although did manage a couple of Best of Breeds at open shows, and a win in Post Graduate dog at London & Provincial Collie.  

In 2019, he has been consistently well placed, and won his classes at Yorkshire Collie open, where he was Reserve Best Dog, and at championship level at Working and Pastoral Breeds of Wales, Scottish Collie, Windsor, National Working and Pastoral and Blackpool, where he also won his 2nd RCC. Also at Blackpool, his litter sister, Takhisis Hope and Dreams with Gataj, won limit bitch and her Stud book Number for Melissa Lockyer.

His winning ways continued by winning his classes at Windsor, NW&PB, East Anglian Collie and Irish Collie, culminating in a win in Limit Dog and his first CC under Morag McCarte, a day made even more special as his sister Hope won her 2nd RCC.
2020 started well with Dexter winning Best in Show at London & Provincial Collie open show under Lynda McCormick, what a lovely start to the year.

ADuring Covid we took advantage of no shows and worked our way through Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze and Silver, proving he has brains as well as beauty.

2023 started well with the 2nd Open Dog & RCC under Tan Nagrecha at Manchester Ch Show. He then won the Good Citizen class at Crufts under Val Tame followed by another 2nd in Open Dog and his 4th RCC under Mike Vincent at Birmingham National. Then at Three Counties he won his 2nd CC with Best of Breed under Sheila Carlton. What a day!

At home he’s quite a clown and loves to play with the rest of the gang but is also so gentle. He’s now a regular at Discover Dogs at Crufts, where he is simply adorable. He’s also a regular donor for the Pet Blood Bank, and is so well behaved, he’s fast becoming one of their favourites.
