My thanks to the officers and committee for inviting me to judge at this their 70th Anniversary show, and to my lovely steward Julie, I really enjoyed my day with the smooths, The smooth collie has come on in leaps and bounds and is now a Breed that has come to the forefront, Quality today was very high, and presentation was to be commended, my hands were as clean when I finished as when I started.

Very much the baby of the class, but what a lovely prospect for the future, a sable, with a most lovely head, eye and expression, with ears nicely tipped and placed, balanced all over with good quarters and he moved soundly for one so young, just needs time now to develop further.
