THE BRITISH COLLIE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW.
What a fantastic day. The British really know how to put on a show with the rings laid out so well, and fantastic flower arrangements in the corners of each ring. A wonderful welcome from the President and her hard working Committee. I was delighted to have such a quality entry of Smooth Collies. In the later classes I was spoilt for choice.
Apart from have such a wonderful entry I was truly amazed to be awarded a special Life time Achievement award from the club, comprising of a beautiful Smooth collie model on a plinth.
A very emotional moment for me at the end of a wonderful day.
