East Anglian Collie Association.
Sub Group Open Show. Sunday 6th August. 2023.
Rough Collies and BIS.
Good entry and I appreciate the time and effort and distances travelled by all of you.
I know it is boring to harp on about presentation in the critique preamble but the number of younger dogs with dirty teeth is disappointing; nor is this a breed I expect to have to use hand wipes after going over them, dandruff and dirty coats do not enhance presentation, nor does cloddy dead coat underneath that top coat. I was pleased with my winners and certainly the young puppies will develop and change. Generally also watch for lack of underjaw.
