Overall, the roughs came away with placements 9 times compared to 7 for the smooths. Two judges honored the breed with Group 1 awards: Peggy Beisel-
McIlwaine (Wire Fox Terriers) and Nathaniel Horn (Chesapeake Bay Retrievers).

The largest Herding Group, in which a collie placed, had a total entry of 189 (same entry number as last month) for Judge Danelle Brown, for whom a smooth collie was awarded a Group 4. This show was held at Greeley Kennel Club on August 20.
