London & Provincial Collie club     24th August 2014

I would like to thank the officers and committee for inviting me to judge at this well run show with a lovely garden party atmosphere.  Many thanks also to the exhibitors for a lovely entry of 74/79 with the usual crop of absentees. It always amazes me how people make the time & effort to bath & groom their dog and then forget to clean its teeth some of which were shocking! I found some of the males lacked size & body weight, whilst I found many of the bitches over loaded hence bad movement. Please remember a fit collie is a happy collie you are not doing your dog any favours.
Having said that I was more than happy with my line up.

PD 5, mixed class of types all at different stages, what I liked in head did not move so well.
1st Madge & Foster, Shep’s Moondance with Jaysur (IMP DNK) 8m Tric who won this class on his movement. A flashy boy with a lovely shape, head coming along nicely. Needs time to mature and come into his own. BPD.
