Collie (Rough and Smooth) I should like to convey grateful thanks to the committee for inviting me to judge the SAC's and to the exhibitors for your support and bringing a lovely selection of dogs for me to judge.
P (5 0) A super class of puppies who will change places many times as they mature. 1 Blake's Corydon Agatha Crystal. 11 month old pretty tri bitch who stood out for me today, with her huge white collar showing off her long neck and gleaming black coat. Nice ear carriage and sweet expression. Moved soundly. 2 Dodsworth's Libanel Everlasting Dezire. Nice b/m 9 month old bitch who is maturing well, of good size and shape. Fair length of neck, nice length of back and good lay of shoulder. She used her ears well. Steady mover.
PG (2 3) 1 Russell's Koczkodan Midnight Sun Jw. Very feminine s/w smooth collie bitch of 5 years. Lovely shape, nice dark eye giving a sweet and alert expression. Firm topline. Moved well around the ring with good reach and drive. 2 Dodsworth's Pomnenka My Fair Lady With Libanel. A four year old tri girl with a very happy disposition. Quite heavily coated, with a pretty head, sweet expression and good use of ears. Unfortunately, her movement let her down today.
O (4 2) Blake's Corydon Pol Roger. Beautifully presented 4 year old b/m dog who I've liked and watched grow since a puppy. Lovely shaped boy with a nice almond eye, dense fitted coat of correct texture and neat oval feet. Showed good movement coming and going. 2 Bell's Koczkodan Nostromo. Upstanding tri smooth collie dog of 61/2 years, all male, lovely profile. Nice straight front. A very sound boy, well muscled. Moved effortlessly round the ring.
