BOSTON ROUGH COLLIES
Thank you to all those who entered under me and to my stewards. A few dogs where shown dirty & some with matted coats this needs addressing!
PUPPY DOG (6,3)
1st Miss Gelder’s Libanel Erebus Eternal Love
Well grown Tri, nice dark eye, good reach of neck, well filled foreface. Moved ok but would be much better with more training and carrying a little less weight. Well presented.
2nd Miss N Dodsworth’s Libanel Everlasting Charm
Nice over all shape with pleasing expression. Movement just needs to tighten behind.
POST GRADUATE (5,2)
1ST Mrs Chaplin’s Takhisis Lysander
Upstanding sable. Possesses good ear set used well, nicely rounded foreface, just enough stop, slightly fuller in eye for me, with good reach of neck, length of back, and turn of stifle. Moved ok. Well presented. Reserve Best Dog.
2nd Dr LW Boyle’s Monsolana Aspire to Inspire over Barrenclough (imp Russia)
Smaller type than 1. Nice dark eye which is well placed with a good ear set. Good depth of chest. Possibly needs moving much slower and on a loose lead.
OPEN DOG (4,1)
1ST Miss M Blake’s Corydon The Grandmaster.
Upstanding shaded sable who catches the eye for type. Ears bang on top & used well, correctly placed, dark eye with well moulded foreface, well placed stop and ample underjaw. Lovely reach of neck well set into correctly angulated shoulder with good length of back leading to correctly set tail. Deep chest. Good turn of stifle. He kept his topline and low tail set as he moved effortlessly around the ring. Presented in top order as one would expect from this kennel. Best Dog, Best of Breed.
2nd Mrs J White’s Camana Chasing Clouds over Mejola
Blue Merle of beautiful colour and correct shape. Pleasing expression and well placed ears. Nicely placed eye and well filled foreface, flattest of backskulls being balanced throughout with no flaring. Would love to see him with a full jacket. Today he was far too proud of his tail.

PUPPY BITCH (11,4)
Two lovely puppies of different type, both must have a bright future.
1ST Miss M Blake’s Corydon Agatha Cristal
Jet black Tri with huge white collar showing off her ample reach of neck. Good ear set, dark eye of correct shape. She is so balanced throughout and it shows in her movement. Best Puppy in Breed today but pushed hard for more. Interesting that my BOB is her Sire.
2nd Mr Mrs Shipps Jackinstar Sandra Dee
My notes say gorgeous. Sable with melting expression. Another with good reach of neck, good topline and angulations. Beautifully presented. Sadly she wasn’t happy today.

POST GRADUATE (9,4)

Well known sable of quality, had little to hide today completely leaving her wardrobe at home. She has the most correct overall conformation, with a pleasing expression and shows well. Will come into her own when her new jacket appears.
