NORTHUMBERLAND & DURHAM COLLIE CLUB

held a 22 class Open Show at Trimdon Village Hall on SUNDAY 21st. OCTOBER
2001B.I.S. was Sargeant's Coarhabeg Crescendo
R.B.I.S. was Findlay's Firecraig Siver Secret
B.P. was Brooker's Lorina Dizzy Dreams of Corisian
I would like to thank the Secretary and committee for a well organised and friendly show.

An excellent entry of 96 was much appreciated. Movement in general was fair: temperament and soundness was first class and all exhibits were presented in top condition with, in the main, clean teeth.

Veteran bitch was very well supported. I give credit to their owners for the attention obviously lavished on these golden oldies. A quality class of sprightly exhibits.

One criticism that could be taken on board - some collies do not stand 4 - square !We should aim to rectify this.
