Scottish Collie Club Championship Show
May 2015
Rough Collie Bitches
Judge - Ms Tracey Goodwin

Firstly I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge bitches at their show and for the hospitality shown to my mom and myself. Thanks also to the stewards for keeping the ring in order and last but not least to the exhibitors for their entries of some lovely quality bitches.
Movement is something I feel needs addressing as there was a number of bitches on first glance I thought would be my winners however I was disappointed when I asked them to move and some also stood all tucked up. I also think some could have been better presented.

MPB 4 (1)
1st Patterson’s Treeview Promise to Boogie - sweet little bitch of lovely shape and good reach of neck, well placed eye and ears that she used well. Well presented.
2nd Davis’ Riverside Song of Zaraza of Rosschell – just over 6 months and very immature compared to 1. Nice expression, good bone and shape, ears very light and very unsettled today. Well presented.
3rd Yule’s Ingledene Gold Lace

1st Corney’s Apatite Skyes at Yenroc - Lovely headed b/m with well placed eye and ears, lacking furnishings which made her appear a bit up on leg.
