Matlock & District CS open show 2/17/2019.
Breed, Rough Collie.
Judge. Mrs Alison Feetham (Lioara)

I would like to start off by saying a big thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge, my steward for his expertise and the exhibitors for a great entry. It was an honor to judge Rough Collies for a third time as I grew up with the breed.

I was quiet saddened to be told after judging that one of my exhibitors dogs was knocked over by a bigger breed coming into the show in the morning, which unfortunately upset her for the rest of the day, and possibly her result under me. I hope that she gets over this soon and I wish her well for the future.

1. Flint. Highnol Flaming Heart. What a lovely young lady, she caught my eye as she entered the ring. Nice head, used her ears well, in good coat, covered the ground well with ease.
2. Ross. Danfrebek Dizzy Rascal. This young man, enjoyed his day out. Good head, good mouth, used his ears well and seemed happy enough on the move.
3. Whitaker. Siluto Misterious Girl

1. Cook & Watkins. Whatacoo Blaze Of Glory. This lovely young lady also caught my eye as soon of she came into the ring. Got good mouth, nice head, used ears well, strong top line, good condition throughout, moved nicely and I couldn't resist giving her BOB.
2. Flint. Highnol Flaming Heart.
I felt it was a hard decision to make between these two girls for first and second in class, I feel they could easily change places on another day.
3. Skinner. Samhaven Time Is Money With Nikal
