We headed to Belton, Texas with our puppy boys and it got pretty exciting. Harry- our 9 & 1/2 month old sable merle headed white boy from Milas Collies made a big splash! First Harry won a four point major under collie breeder judge Judi Roller by going winner’s dog, best of winners, and best of variety over a champion! After that, Harry was again selected winner’s dog, best of winners, and best of variety over a champion for another 4 point major under collie breeder judge Butch Schulman! To top off a great day, judge Butch Schulman found Harry again in the Herding Group and gave him an awesome Group 3 placement. Harry finished his run with a nice winner’s dog placement and a 3 point major under judge Janet Bodin. We could not stop smiling.

Harry is owned by Margie Blount, Rosalie Ward, and Debbie Jones.

Our boy from Alcor Collies did well too, picking up his own 3 point major going winner’s dog, best of winners and best of variety under Ms. Teddy McDowell.

Our young pup Cotton, from Aurealis Collies, had his debut too. He did well – picking up 3 reserve winners placements. Cotton is going to be a big boy and has a lot of growing up to do.

It is very exciting to watch young collies grow up.
