Collies, Rough - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

BY ALL accounts it really was flaming June at Kelso, but I doubt that the owner of our breed’s latest champion has yet to notice! Val Tame and her now, Ch Rahlissa Love Song took LB and that most important third CC. Bred by Val, she is by Ch Triburle Zachary, and is, I think, his first ch daughter ex Samhaven Momentum....

Collies, Rough - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

THURSDAY morning at Malvern was overcast and windy, so all judging on pastoral and utility day took place under cover. The ring was adequate for our judge Betty Peach. (Rosdyke), although she awards CC’s in other breeds, this was her first appointment for Roughs.      An entry of 88 greeted her for...

Collies, Rough - week 24Updated : 07/06/2017

AGAIN a busy weekend with three shows to attend, firstly at Southern Counties, although a ch show, there were no CCs on offer. British Collie also held its summer open show on the same day and Ayrshire had an open show on Sunday.      Perhaps with a little more concern to the show calendar, both SCCA and...

Collies, Rough - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

BATH SHOWGROUND greeted all exhibitors with immaculately laid out rings, benching under cover and walkways in case of rain. Sunday was dry and at times it was warm but at 9.30, following a minute’s silence for Manchester all assembled for judging to commence.      Our judge, Geoff Duffield last jud...

Collies, Rough - week 22Updated : 24/05/2017

QUITE a lot of news to catch up on, as the same weekend as the first of these shows were held, I had been away judging both Pembrokes and Cardigans in Denmark and my most grateful thanks to Julie, Sophie and others who have either let me know the results or have sent down copies of the show catalogues. Without this informati...

Collies, Rough - week 20Updated : 10/05/2017

BY ALL accounts a good day was had by many at the recent Birmingham National Show. I have received messages from some of the winners and this is very much appreciated, as was a copy of the catalogue which arrived early in the morning.      Stuart Mallard (Tuckles) was our judge for the day. He last judge...

Collies, Rough - week 18Updated : 26/04/2017

SURELY, the highlight of this last weekend has to be the gathering, in aid of Collie Rescue, at Carsington Water, Ashborne, Derbyshire of the Collie Chaos event.      I only have the briefest of news at the moment for you all but do know that 119 Roughs attended the day. When I receive official confirmat...

Collies, Rough - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

W/PB OF WALES was held with a change of judge. At the time of close of entries and with Crufts being held at the same time, confirmation of the replacement judge was somewhat delayed and in consequence the overall numbers suffered.      Pauline Skyrme had to withdraw due to a change in date for an operat...

Collies, Rough - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

NEWS IN from Jo White, who has been having a great time recently, showing both Mejola Dangerous Liaison and M Fait And Fortune. Both litter mates have collected some BP and BOBs but at Retford under Mike Braddish (Bradmigail) Dangerous Liaison took BP and followed this up with PG4 from Brigit Bodle (Kitarn). This was followe...

Collies, Rough - week 15Updated : 04/04/2017

IT WAS a very busy weekend for some exhibitors who took in both CCW championship show and WECS open show. Some managed a trip back home to Scotland to attend the Scottish Collie open show. All of which were held last weekend!      Starting with CCW at Llantrisant, this is always a favourite of mine but I...

Collies, Rough - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

SCOTTISH Breeds was held last weekend and from an entry of 65, there only appeared to be eight absent for our judge, Jean Catliff (Mallicot). Jean’s last appointment for the breed was Lancs and Cheshire 2013 but she has officiated as a BIS judge at Midland Collie 2016 since.      Jean, chauffeured ...

Collies, Rough - week 13Updated : 24/03/2017

Collies, Rough - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

APART from those sensible Collie folk who had booked overnight accommodation before Sunday judging, many rose at silly o’clock, faced long drives and some major road diversions on route to the NEC. Why is it that those in charge of highways assume that there will be no one out and about in the early hours and close roa...

Collies, Rough - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

WITH THE breed at heart and the exhibitor in mind, is the mission statement for the British Collie Club and it certainly lived up to expectations at the championship show held recently. A nice entry of 174 Roughs and 46 Smooths waited for their respective judges of Scottish based, Billy Ritchie (Aberquarrie), committee membe...

Collies, Rough - week 10Updated : 01/03/2017

EAST ANGLIAN CA is pulling out all the stops to celebrate its 60th anniversary this year.

More details for those will be announced later, but the first event of the EACA...

Collies, Rough - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

WEST OF England CS would advise of a change of judge for its forthcoming open show to be held on April 2 at East Huntspill Village Hall.
