2ND December 2017 at Overseal

JUDGE:  DENISE ROWAN

First I would like to thank the committee of The British Collie Club for inviting me to judge this lovely show and a big thank you to my 2 stewards and to the exhibitors for bringing your lovely dogs.

Veteran Dog/Bitch

  1. Scott’s – Aniesh Portrait in Blue SHCM – 8 years blue merle dog, good head qualities, eye shape and placement was correct, good reach of neck, nice shape, moved OK.

 

Minor Puppy Dog, 2

  1. Hawkins & Foy – Beldones Gadget - Tri of very good breed type. Well moulded head, and balanced head with a lovely oblique set almond dark eye and correct ear set.  Super shape and well constructed and looked good on stance.  He just didn’t like the floor hence his movement was a bit erratic but nevertheless he was a very nice puppy and I am sure given time he will do well.  BPD

 

  1. Gallagher’s – Kisalagi D’Artagnan At Galdana – Sable/White dog puppy with good head qualities.  Well moulded head, correct eye shape and placement, good ear set.  He just tended to stand a little close at the back on stance but he is still very much a baby and looked good in profile.  Moved OK

Puppy Dog 1

  1. Broadhead’s – Rahlissa Only Make Believe – Another very nice puppy of very good breed type. Good head qualities, lovely eye shape and placement, correct ear set, well arched neck, lovely shape. Moved OK.

 Junior Dog. 5

  1. Gladwell’s – Moon Happy Jotars – This boy caught my eye as soon as he entered the ring.  Stunning blue colour with lots of ring presence.  He had a super well moulded and balanced head, flat skull and a lovely eye shape, colour and placement giving him that look at me expression.  Good ear set.  Angulation was good he just needs to slightly mature in his chest but his overall breed type gave way to this as he had sufficient angulation and moved in my opinion well, well arched neck, good depth of chest, and spring of rib.  He was a lovely shape with good length of tail and low set hocks. He looked very good on stance.  I hope he has a bright future.  I was pleased to award him - Best Dog.

 

  1. Cronk’s – Chelborn Story Teller – Another quality dog.  Well balanced masculine head, flat skull, super eye shape and placement. Correct ear set Good reach of neck, Very good angulation. A very nice dog.
