Yorkshire Collie Club

Open Show May 27th, 2023

I would first like to thank the secretary and committee of Yorkshire Collie Club for inviting me to judge at their show and to also thank all of the exhibitors that gave their time to enter and show their dogs under me, some quality dogs to go over and was really nice to be judging in a different area of the country, I was so sorry I was unable to stay and watch the BIS judging, but really happy to see all my winners held their own in the challenges.


Smooth Collies

Veteran (2-1)

  1. Russell’s Ch Foxearth Fashion Guru for Koczkodan

Sable and white dog only 11/2 weeks off his 14th birthday, lovely parallel head planes, nice ears with correct tip, lovely oval eyes and still very alert. Muscular neck, just a tad short, so didn’t quite get a good arch. Well sprung ribs and deep chest, lovely level back and still holding muscle tone at rear and his age not affecting his movement. BVD/RBD/BVIB/RBVIS
Puppy (0-0)


Post Graduate (5-2)

  1. Jerrett’s Coldelee Eternal Sunshine


13 month sable and white B with lots to like, very feminine, good parallel head planes, almond shape eyes and well tipped ears, muzzle just needs to fill out a little more. Good length of neck into well laid back shoulder, muscular forelegs and well sprung ribs, level topline. Muscular rear thighs with good turn of stifle, good powerful movement around the ring. Definitely one to watch for the future BB/RBoB

  1. Koczkodan Midnight Sun JW

5 Y/old Sable and white B, Overall head was good, just not quite parallel on the head planes and really struggling to use her ears today. Strong neck and well sprung ribs, level topline, well-muscled rear thigh. Good feet. overall body was more filled out than one

Strong, well arched neck and good spring of rib, an overall strong front end, topline just a little dippy on the day, nice rise over loins. Well-muscled thighs and good turn of stifle, strong hocks. At this point was the best moving exhibit.
