BEARDED COLLIE CLUB OF SCOTLAND
Sat 21 Jun 08
Judge: Cath Moffat (Kyleca)

In the turbulent weather conditions we are all experiencing, I considered myself very fortunate to be judging all the dogs at the Bearded Collie Club of Scotland summer show, Alva on a beautiful sunny day. Thank you to all the exhibitors who attended the show, some of them driving quite a distance, and accepting all my decisions with good grace.

Thanks must also go to the lovely committee for such a well organised event that made the day thoroughly enjoyable. A big thank you to my steward Bob, who although unwell on the day, soldiered on professionally to assist me in my duties, hope you’re feeling a lot better.

I found the vast majority of dogs to be of excellent quality with few negative points although some exhibits were very overweight resulting in hampered and incorrect movement. The Bearded Collie should be a lean, active breed who is capable of covering the ground effortlessly with economical movement, some struggled! Having said that I was very pleased with my main winners, a couple that took me by surprise, and all my class winners.


SPECIAL VINTAGE
1. Aughey’s Aughenaird Clyde’s Double. Dark slate dog of 10 years, nicely made with good front and rear, good length, strongly made head with dark eye and strength of muzzle. Movement ok but lacked enthusiasm and animation. BSV.

VETERAN
1. Aughey’s Aughenaird Clyde’s Double.

MINOR PUPPY DOG
1. Paterson’s Gallus Absolute Quality. Lovely brown boy of 7 months with good head and correct eye colour at this stage, good length of neck leading to nice shoulder placement. Good length of rib and well angulated rear which showed in his movement. Beautifully presented and handled to perfection BPD & RBPIS.
2. Mellis’ Gallus Absolute Dazzling. Slate dog of 7 months, litter brother to winner, nicely proportioned with good head and eye colour, not quite the rib and depth of winner but moved with reach and drive, well handled and presented.

PUPPY DOG
1. Paterson’s Gallus Absolute Quality.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue. Dark blue male of 11 months, a more mature puppy with good bone and substance, strongly made head with correct bite and dark eye. Good front angulation with good length of rib and strong loin, biddable dog that moved well, just preferred the balance and overall proportions of winner.







JUNIOR DOG
1. Forrest & Drummond’s Kiltondale Mid-Knight. Upstanding young dark slate dog of 14 months, all male and very handsome! Masculine head with strong muzzle and correct bite, beautiful expression. Good depth of chest and length of rib with soundly made rear. He moved effortlessly and well in his classes but felt he was flagging by the end of the day, that said, I think this young dog has a very bright future and will follow his career with great interest.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue.
3. Green’s Westbere Winter Nights.

SPECIAL YEARLING DOG
1. Forrest & Drummond’s Kiltondale Mid-Knight.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue.

MAIDEN DOG
1. Green’s Westbere Winter Nights. Slate dog of 15 months, adequate head proportions with kind expression, eye colour toning with coat, correct bite, good length of rib with sufficient angulation front and rear, moved ok. Good textured coat, well handled.

NOVICE DOG
No entries.

DEBUTANT DOG
1. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue.
2. Cunningham’s Bustroc Tam O’Shanter. Slate dog of 2 years with adequate angulation front and rear, would have preferred a stronger head but had a pleasing expression, correct eye colour and bite, coat of good texture and quality, needs some firmer handling as I found his movement erratic.

UNDERGRADUATE DOG
1. Forrest & Drummond’s Kiltondale Mid-Knight.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue.
3. Durrant’s Brathens Cooter Crofter.

GRADUATE DOG
1. Gill & Cook’s Ramsgrove Homeward Bound to Gillaber JW. Handsome blue dog of 2 years, not the biggest of dogs but lovely proportions throughout, masculine head with lovely expression and good eye colour, correct bite, moved effortlessly and soundly around the ring, so well presented and handled. RBD.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Kingfisher Blue.
3. Durrant’s Brathens Cooter Crofter.

POST GRADUATE DOG
1. McClymont’s Ciopar Magical Mack at Reaosh. Slate dog of 3 years with good broad head and nice eye, lovely masculine expression, good length of neck leading into well placed shoulders, enough length of rib with sound strong loin, moved soundly and was well presented.
2. Bayne’s and Florquin’s Brathens Cooter Commotion. Brown dog of 2 years with masculine head and correct bite, adequate angulation and length of rib, found his movement rather erratic affected by his tail carriage.
3. Stott’s Mobuff Kashmir.


LIMIT DOG
1. Gill & Cook’s Scruffydog Donn Dougal at Gillaber. 4½ year old brown dog who has come on so much in the last couple of years, good front and rear with nice length of rib. Sound head proportions with affectionate expression, correct bite. Moved effortlessly around the ring with sound and positive movement. Very well handled and presented.
2. Henderson’s Romegs Revisited by Shorndene. Another nice slate boy of 6½ years with good proportions throughout, handsome, broad head with correct bite and nice dark eye. Very well presented, just felt today he wasn’t as sound on the move as class winner.

OPEN DOG
This class had to be one of the hardest decisions of the day. Two beautiful, sound dogs and nothing to choose between them.
1. Hines’ Ramsgrove Ragthyme JW. Have watched this dog with interest from the ringside and he did not disappoint. Very masculine and handsome dog with the broadest of skulls, lovely strong underjaw and gorgeous expression, no mistaking this dog was a male! Good shoulder placement and length of rib with a strong rear which showed in his fluid movement. Toned up, fit and on top form. So well handled, I was very pleased to award him BD and BIS.
2. Buchanan-Hislop’s Ch.Ciopar Celtic Razzle’s Boy JW. Another lovely dog who I have always admired from being a puppy. Lovely head with kind expression and nice dark eye, good length of neck and super front and rear angulation, coat in good, harsh condition, well presented and handled, just felt today his fitness let him down.

SPECIAL VINTAGE BITCH
1. Johnston’s Ch. Potterdale Anna-Belle. 12 year old slate bitch that would put any youngster to shame, top marks for condition and fitness. So very disappointed that she was subsequently withdrawn from the bitch challenge. Ultra feminine bitch with beautiful head and expression, lovely angulation front and rear with good length of rib, moved effortlessly around the ring, handled with ease, an absolute credit to her owner.
2. Delaney’s Arranbrae Just by Chance. Another lovely bitch of good type, beautiful head and expression, correctly made with lovely angulation. She is clearly enjoying her elderly years and the luxuries that go alongside, resulting in extra weight carriage which did affect her overall movement. Well handled and beautifully presented.

VETERAN BITCH
1. Barley’s Ch. Runival Dream of Peace. A beautiful bitch and although arriving at the show by the skin of her teeth, never faltered and certainly didn’t put a paw wrong! Feminine head with gorgeous expression, dark eye and correct bite. Nicely made throughout with good angulation front and rear, lovely length to height ratios, she moved effortlessly around the ring with reach and drive BV, BVIS.
2. Buchanan-Hislop’s Arranbrae Just Maybe. Another nice bitch with good proportions throughout, strong but feminine head and lovely expression. Good length of rib and sound rear, she moved well going away from me but felt she was just a little wide in front coming back. Well presented and handled.

MINOR PUPPY BITCH
Absent





PUPPY BITCH
1. Hines’ Ramsgrove Lizzie Lentil. Dark slate bitch of 11 months with lovely feminine head and expression, dark eye and correct bite, lovely length to height proportions, a delight to go over, she excelled in with easy and free movement. Beautifully handled and presented in good condition. A real welcome surprise, pleased to award her BPB, BPIS.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Winnie The Blue Witch. Dark blue girl of 11 months. Another nice bitch of good proportions, kindest of expression with good head, eye and correct bite. Well placed shoulders and good sound rear, she moved well without effort.
3. McClymont’s Reaosh Lady Luck.

JUNIOR BITCH
1. Walker’s Douglasdale Dream Angel of Walkerbrae. Beautiful brown bitch of 17 months turned out to perfection. Lovely head with feminine and enquiring expression, so pretty. Nicely made bitch with good front angulation, depth and length of rib leading to a sound rear which she used well, covering ground effortlessly, one I could have quite easily taken home!
2. Buchanan-Hislop’s Ciopar Celtic Chancer. Another lovely slate bitch of 16 months, lovely head with a very cheeky and mischievous look! Beautifully made with good shoulder placement and a sound positive rear, moved well with good reach and drive, as usual well presented and handled.
3. Griffiths’ Silene Winnie The Blue Witch.

SPECIAL YEARLING BITCH
1. Johnston’s Potterdale Star of Peebles JW. Beautiful soundly made bitch of good proportions, most feminine head with lovely expression, good angles front and rear and nice length of rib, moved soundly and effortlessly. Well handled and presented in tip-top condition.
2. Buchanan-Hislop’s Ciopar Celtic Chancer.
3. Griffiths’ Silene Winnie The Blue Witch.

MAIDEN BITCH
1. Rudd’s Bendale Lavender Blue at Lubin. Pretty feminine blue bitch of 10 months, head proportions ok with correct bite and eye colour for age. Would have liked a better length of rib and a little less weight which, without doubt, affected her movement. Well handled and presented.

NOVICE BITCH
1. Walker’s Douglasdale Dream Angel of Walkerbrae.
2. McClymont’s Reaosh Lady Luck. Pretty slate bitch of 11 months, not the biggest of bitches but soundly made in front and rear, good length of rib, she moved steadily and well, handled and turned out to perfection.
3. Peart’s Mostonbrae Angel of Peace.

DEBUTANT BITCH
1. Walker’s Douglasdale Dream Angel of Walkerbrae.
2. Buchanan-Hislop’s Ciopar Celtic Chancer.
3. Hines’ Ramsgrove Lizzie Lentil.



UNDERGRADUATE BITCH
1. Buchanan-Hislop’s Ciopar Celtic Chancer.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Winnie The Blue Witch.
3. Pirrie’s Arranbrae Amour.

GRADUATE BITCH
1. Hines’ Ramsgrove Ramblin’ Rose JW. What a star! A beautifully made brown bitch of 2 years, so nicely made throughout with good head and body proportions and lovely length of rib. Coat of harsh texture and in excellent condition, a lovely head with most feminine of expression, effortless of movement with super reach and drive, she owned the ring! Handled well and turned out in tip-top condition RBB.
2. Griffiths’ Silene Winnie The Blue Witch.

POST GRADUATE BITCH
1. Paterson’s Gallus Living The Dream. A lovely slate bitch of 2 years who I have admired since she was a puppy, turned out as I would have expected, good length to height proportions with feminine but strongly made head, good eye colour and correct bite. Moved steadily and true, well handled and beautifully presented.
2. Barley’s Braemoray Strathspey at Runival. Another lovely girl of 2½ years who I have often admired from the ringside. Lovely head with pretty expression, correct bite and nice dark eye. Good length to height ratios with correct rib, lovely anglation front and rear, an abundance of coat which was in good condition, well handled and presented.

LIMIT BITCH
1. Rudd’s Lubin’s Bella Halona. Slate bitch of 4 years with pretty head and good eye colour, front and rear angulation adequate with decent length of rib, she would benefit from carrying a little less weight as this affected her ability to move correctly, well presented.

OPEN BITCH
1. Gault’s Ch. Osmart Maid in Black by Sioux for Lochbarra. A lovely sound bitch of 3½ years, so well balanced with super angulation front and rear, good depth and length of rib. Beautiful head with the sweetest of expression, dark eye and correct bite. Moved well with effortless and sound movement, have admired her from being a puppy and she certainly didn’t disappoint me!
Well handled and presented BB, RBIS, BOS.
2. Gilchrist’s Romegs Repertoire. A nicely made dark slate bitch, just not quite the substance of the winner. Lovely head with pretty expression, dark eye and correct bite. Good body proportions throughout , moved well with reach and drive, well handled and presented.
3. Jemmett’s Potterdale Amazing Luck at Westbere.

SPECIAL WORKING DOG OR BITCH
1. Armour & Fletcher’s Runival Sgurr Dearg. Brown boy of 7½ years, nicely made throughout with decent front and rear angulation, good deep chest and length of rib, strongly made throughout. Good head with nice eye, correct bite and handsome expression. Not happy in the ring which resulted in some erratic movement.

FUN OBEDIENCE CRITIQUE (Not KC) - Judge Liz Jay (Talraz)
BEARDED COLLIE CLUB OF SCOTLAND OPEN SHOW
SATURDAY 21st JUNE 2008

Thankyou to the BCC of Scotland for the invitation to judge these Obedience Classes – a new venture for the Club – and also to Jim for his calm methodical stewarding which put us all at ease.

I have to say I was very impressed by the way most of the dogs ignored the many distractions which included passing traffic, loose dogs, and small boys playing football! Beardies being Beardies, we did see some refusing to take their work seriously and I was glad to see the handlers remained philosophical and relaxed regardless.

In general tight leads and wide working accounted for most of the marks lost, though stays were costly for some. Anything less than full marks in the stays is an almost impossible handicap to get over in most classes, so it’s always worth practising these – not to mention what a very useful exercise this can be in everyday ways.

RESULTS

STARTERS (15 entries, 4 abs., 1 w/drawn)
1st Miss A Stewart and ZYMINI CRICKET
Nice steady work with little to fault , full marks in recall and stays. Just ½ mark lost in slight heelwork errors. Confident, cheerful handling throughout.
2nd Mrs D Barley and BRAEMORAY STRATHSPEY AT RUNIVAL, another very pleasing round with very minor errors in heelwork and recall, and full marks in stays, ending up just ¼ mark behind our winner losing ¾.
3rd Miss A Stewart with SALLEN CAVA, this big amiable brown dog produced a surprisingly neat and accurate round without appearing to try too hard – and once again full marks in stays. Lost 1 ½.
4th Mrs J Jemmett with Swallowlaw Thistle, willing little Working Springer, had a lovely attitude. Pity she had the habit of getting up to greet her handler at the end of stays as it cost her some marks, work on that and she’ll win next time! Lost 2 ½, well tried.

TRIERS (15 entries, 3 abs., 3 w/drawn)
A couple of dogs in this class were quite shaky on their stays which was a pity.
1st Miss A Stewart and ZYMINI CRICKET, kept his concentration in this class as well to lose only ½ mark, giving his handler a lovely day with two red rosettes!
2nd Mrs D Barley and BRAEMORAY STRATHSPELL AT RUNIVAL, putting in another tidy round with full mark stays, well done. Lost 1.
3rd Mrs P Scott and BROUGHTON LAD AT WHINNEYHOWE, a nice happy round from this rescue dog belying his traumatic history. Sympathetic handling producing no major errors and full marks in stays. Lost 2 ¼
4th Miss A Stewart and SALLEN CAVA, his relaxed and slightly untidy working style in this round produced several minor errors, mainly lagging and wide working, but nevertheless only ½ mark behind the 3rd place dog losing 2 ¾ altogether, and once again full marks in stays.

HOPEFULS (5 entries, 3 abs.)
1st Miss P Scott with BROUGHTON LAD AT WHINNEYHOWE, I’ll admit to marking a bit more strictly in this class but still only bits and pieces here totally 5 and producing a clear winner, well done.
2nd Mrs J Riddell and SALLEN HILDEGARDE, this bitch just wasn’t wanting to show us her ability today and produced an almost unmarkable round. In deference to the lovely lady owner’s feelings I won’t put the marks lost, suffice to say double figures!

FLIERS (7 antries, 4 abs.)
1st Mrs P Scott and PENDWR RILL AT WHINNEYHOWE, neat little bitch producing calm attentive work, just bits and pieces totaling 1 ¾ and full marks on stays. Very nice to watch this team in action, there is a lovely rapport between dog and handler.
2nd Mrs P Scott and SILVER TASSIE AT WHINNEYHOWE, similar to her kennelmate but heel free especially not quite so accurate. Nevertheless full marks in both stays and distant control, well done. Lost 4.
3rd Mrs S Stott’s MOBUFF KASHMIR, a very brave attempt with a dog who clearly knows his stuff but today just had his head up in the clouds, perhaps feeling the heat. Lost 14 ¼ mainly during a disastrous heel free. Better luck next time!

LIZ JAY (Judge)
