|DOGS AT THE ROYAL SHOW The LAND Thursday April 25th 1968|
Collies Rough with 145 entries were around their usual strength. Mr. Mathews said:
"The entry was quite good and as a breed they were well presented, and. made an excellent showing.
| "The Challenge Dog was the Open winner shown in excellent coat. He has plenty of substance is free moving with a nice expression and is very typical of the breed.
"The Reserve Dog was also from the Open and although not carrying the coat of the winner has a very pleasing head and expression. He is a good specimen that moves well and pressed the other dog closely.
"My Challenge Bitch was in good coat. She has a lovely expression and moves well. She used her ears well and was a fairly clear winner.
"My Reserve Bitch a free mover with good head and outlook and has lovely neck and shoulders, but did not have the coat of the winner.
"I'd like to mention both puppy winners, particularly the bitch pup. This is a very sound bitch shown in excellent condition and paraded well. She has a very pleasing head and expression. The dog pup was only young but appealed to me as one with great promise and should do well at future shows."
