First of all I would like to say thank yu to Yorkshire COllie Club for inviting me to judge Smooth Collies.

It was lovely to see my BOB go BVIS and BIS.

Puppy Dog/Bitch
1st Koczkodan Midnight Sky - Try Dog, a very well balanced puppy, lovely expression, moved ok, just needs some ring craft

2nd Koczkodan Midnight Sun - Sable Bitch - has a lovely outline, just preferred the dogs expression

Lmit Dog/Bitch
1st Oakestelle Artemis - A lovely colour blue who is fit for purpose, she moved with power and drive and was handled to perfection, RBOB and BB.

2nd Breckamore Bittersweet for Koczkodan - Tri who has a very nice and balanced head, just found her a wee bit small, moved ok

Open Dog/Bitch
1st Oakestelle Indierock at Stormsett - Unfortunately missed her first class, this is one I have judged before. I can't beleive how much she has improved, she moved with drive and is another that is definitely fit for the job intended

Veteran Dog/Bitch
1st Foxearth Fashion Guru for Koczkodan - This dog is a pleasure to go over, he has a well balanced head, good shoulders and bend of stifle. He is one I have always admired from the ringside and I had no hesitation in awarding him BOB

2nd Alopex Marionette of Oakestelle - yet another I have always admired, superbly handled, she has a correct make and shape, just preferred the dog on the day. Ran her granddaughter hard for RBOB

3rd Manordeifi Satin Doll of Koczkodan
