COLLIE ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
NOVEMBER 2014
ROUGH COLLIE DOGS CRITIQUE

I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge Rough Collie dogs at their 80th Anniversary Show and for the lovely gifts I received. Thanks also to my stewards for keeping everything in order and to the exhibitors for giving me a good entry. I really enjoyed my day.

I was very disappointed with the presentation of some of the exhibits, there is no excuse for them being dirty or having knotted and matted coats. However this didn't apply to my winners.
