Lancs and Cheshire Championship Show BPD - May 2013 - Anglesey Open Show BPIB/PG1
A sable who really has to be handled to be appreciated, not a glamour boy by any counts, but more than makes up for it in quality. He possesses a nice clean head with ample stop and two lovely well placed dark eyes, neat ears, which he knew how to use, nicely filled in foreface, all combined to give him an exquisite expression. Good reach of neck, nice length of back, and good quarters, neat feet, all enabled him to move out soundly, his wealth of coat was beautifully presented. Should have a very bright future, had no hesitation in awarding him Best Puppy Dog. Unfortunate to come up against a lovely Puppy Bitch for B.P.I.B (two lovely puppies who should do well in the future). Judge Mrs E Kitchen

Bath Championship Show - 1st Puppy dog and 1st Novice Dog
"Telfords     Glenbowdene Shades of Gold, no denying this guy’s sex.  An upstanding g/s in huge coat, very good head, dark almond eye aids his appeal so much, nicely arched neck, which is of decent length.  His outline draws the eye & he proved to be the most fluent move in this class, especially in profile.  Shows promise"
Judge Albert Wight

Shane - July 2013

Leeds Championship Show - 1st Junior Dog
I have watched this dog over the past few months so it was nice to have the pleasure of going over him. His head is clean with a good stop, dark well placed eye, neat ears, nice flat skull, shows non stop. He has a lovely sweet expression, with a good length of neck and back, well boned, but not overdone, has a lovely overall balance and conformation, moves easily and effortlessly.
Judge Mrs Marianne Grindley

August 2014 - Bournemouth Championship Show - 1st Post Graduate Dog - RDCC
PGD (9,1) 1 Telford’s Glenbowdene Shades Of Gold, s/w, in full, well presented coat, I made this dog my BPD last time I judged & was so pleased to see him, & that he is now maturing into a lovely adult. He possesses a most lovely head, nicely rounded in foreface, ample stop, neat ears & with ears tight on top gave him the sweetest expression from his lovely dark eyes, good reach of neck, leading into a good length of back with a correctly set tail, nice deep chest, ample bone, neat feet, good quarters, moved soundly carrying a lovely topline. My pleasure to award him the RCC & sincerely hope that he continues his winning ways.

Judge Mr J Chorley - at the tender age of just over 6 months Sadie had a 2nd in a quality Minor Puppy class thus qualifying for Crufts 2017

What a lovely day making the long journey worthwhile where judge Mr T Nagrecha thought so highly of Sadie giving her
1st Minor Puppy Bitch, 1st Novice Bitch and Best Puppy Bitch

What a super day where judge Gwen Beaden gave Sadie 1st Minor Puppy, and Best Puppy Bitch. Best Puppy in Breed which was a joint agreement between Gwen Beaden and Mr J Ritchie the dog judge. Best Puppy in Show awarded by Mr Phil Amos

Birmingham National (6th May 2016)
BEST PUPPY BITCH
"Up to size s/w of correct type with head of good length.  Nice eye & expression, good construction which gave her nice overall shape.  Good coat & presentation.  Moved OK. BPB - Judge - Penny Sewell

Scottish Kennel Club (20th May 2016)
BEST PUPPY BITCH
"I thought her sheer look of quality shone through here.  Her head has length, the skull quite flat, enough stop, really good foreface & chin & that lovely gentle collie expression.  Scores in reach of neck, backline & sweeping croup.  Needs to settle more on the move as she toes in a bit when fore viewed but once on the go around she holds her shape well with good hock use." - Judge - Albert Wight

West of England Collie Society (10th July 2016)
2nd in Puppy Bitch
What a super head and eye, with ears up giving a sweet expression.  All head planes correct, dentition correct, nice neck and front, neat feet, well angulated quarters, moved well, covered all the ring, when this youngster lengthens in back as she matures, her picture will be completed, loved her -
Judge - Anita Stanley
