At Clydebank & District open show on 16th March 2013. Brodie (Avonbank Designed in Gold) and Storm (Rengala Taken By Storm) did the double with Brodie winning the Pastoral Group and Storm winning the Pastoral Puppy Group. A big thanks to our judge Bridgette Bodle (Kitarn) for thinking so highly of our boys. What a fabulous day we had.
Here is what judge Bridgette Bodle had to say about our boys:
SHETLAND SHEEPDOGS – I took great enjoyment from judging this breed & found a good depth of quality right down the line, lovely to go over so many well presented dogs. P (1) 1 BP, Rengala Taken By Storm, eyecatching 8 months sable who carries a wonderful coat for his age, so full of confidence & beautifully handled to get the best from him, good head shape, neat well used ears & dark eye giving a pleasing expression, very good front legs & feet, graceful mover covering the ground with minimal effort, sired by my BOB I see, I loved him!
O (6) 1 Wilkies Avonbank Designed In Gold, my notes say just stunning! Perfectly balanced dog in top class condition, beautiful head & expression, proportionate skull to muzzle ratios, straight front to the best of feet, good spring of rib, slight rise over loin, totally at one with handler, covered the ground well with grace & style, put on a sterling performance later on in the group, I loved him!
