Lovely show, so well organised with friendly officials and exhibitors, lovely to hear the applause for all the class winners.
Best in Show -Sheltie, Ch Caurniehill Single Malt. Topped a lovely breed entry that contained 3 champions. Looked a champion from the moment my eye looked at him. Has breed type, style and balance, excellent head, ears, eyes, correct bite, lovely neck, straight front, lovely body qualities and excellent quarters. So impressive on the move all topped with a rich sable jacket that was presented to perfection. No surprise to see he was titled and he also won BVIS at 7, absolutely at his very best.

Feminine, excellent bite, strong back line and very impressive quarters which he used to perfection, real drive and extension. Excellent jacket, so well presented. Her brother was BOS must have been a lovely litter. Told later she recently won her first CC plus a RCC. Sure to go all the way, her conformation came through on the move, faultless.
BPIS - Sheltie just 6 months old, first show for Mackercher, Caladonia Siainte Mhath, a male with huge promise, head appealed, excellent eye, bite, ear set and a good neck, straight front, excellent overall balance so confident on the move.
