BIS Show Judge Mrs E Kitchen

My Thanks to all for inviting me to judge BIS etc at this prestigious of shows.

For Best in Show I chose the ever lovely  and  ever young smooth collie, who belies her age.
Hayward .. CH Clingstones Hot Shot At Foxearth. This tri bitch needs no introduction from me and is looking better than ever, and could not be overlooked.A picture of health and stamina and on top of her game, the epitome of a smooth collie and as near to perfection as you can get. I had no hesitation in awarding her BIS and Best Veteran in Show.

Reserve BIS, went to the Blue Merle rough collie BOB.
Congdon... CH . FR CH Jugband Blues Du Clos De Seawind via Aaronwell.(imp Fra)
Upstanding blue, no mistaking his sex, of a good colour , all well put together, just felt that at the end of a long day he just lost his “mojo “and interest, but no denying his quality.

Best Puppy in Show
 Walker& Ritchie.. Starlenga All About Me .
And it was.....Well what do I say about this extrovert and precarious baby with  such character and attitude for one so young  She completely captivated me, took it all in her stride and at the end of a very long day she still gave of her all. I applaud her. She is a beautiful tricolour of a lovely make and shape, who possesses a lovely head piece. Balanced and refined and nicely filled in foreface, two lovely dark almond shaped  eyes and ears bang on top which never flinched, all giving her the sweetest , and at the same time cheekiest expression, At just over six months her movement was quite positive, and she defied me not to award her. I am sure she has a very bright future ahead of her and I wish her well for the future.
