Ring Patterns: A look back at September 2016

Rough Collie Reserve Best in Show at Moore County Kennel Club

September brought 35 Herding Group placements to our Collies. Only the month of May accounted for more placements with 40.

Overall, the Roughs came away with placements 20 times compared to 15 for the Smooths. Three judges honored the breed with Group 1 awards: Joseph Gregory (Boxers). Barbara Pessina (Pulik) and Charles Trotter (German Shepherds) and a Reserve Best in Show was awarded by Patricia Trotter (Norwegian Elkhounds) at Moore County Kennel Club in North Carolina. Judge Trotter has been judging Collies at all-breed shows since July 2002.

The largest Herding Group, in which a collie placed, had a total entry of 192 for Judge Beverly Capstick (Doberman Pinschers), for whom a smooth collie was awarded a Group 3. This show was held at Somerset Hills Kennel Club in New Jersey.
