As always a very long & tiring day, unfortunately I was unavailable so the gang had to go without me this time. The pups had a great day, Archie was 2nd Puppy Dog and Dolly 3rd Puppy Bitch, both qualifying for next year’s Crufts! Dilys was 2nd in Veteran Bitch. They then spent the afternoon greeting people on the Smooth Collie Discover Dogs stand – a chance for members of the public to meet a Smooth Collie (as well as all the other breeds!) and ask questions. The pups were excellent ambassadors for the breed, greeting everyone enthusiastically, and Dilys was much admired for how chilled out she was.
