Peaches is our homebred girl who rules the kennel with her demanding nature and clowning around she has taken a back seat to Phoebe and some of the younger girls  but on her rare appearances in the ring she gained her Junior Warrant as a puppy best puppy awards and was Best Bitch and Best in Show at Ayrshire Collie Club 2012, Thank you to judge Mrs Mary McInally.
It is hoped we will campaign her in 2014 after maternal duties.
