This was at the DC&SSA Specialty, June 23, 1985. The entry in Puppy Sweepstakes was 60 !! In Sweeps! (31 males, 29 bitches). Collies (Rough & Smooth) and Shelties were judged together in classes divided by sex and age as usual. (There were 15 Smooths, 86 Roughs and 93 Shelties in the regular show). I was supposed to judge all the Obedience classes as well, but because of the entry, I could only judge the 30 entries in the Open Classes (87 total entries in Obedience - Collies and Shelties only). Those were the days, eh?!!
This was my final lineup. Males 6-9 was Alfenloch State Of The Art (sable Rough), 9-12 Males was Carnwath's Synchronicity (tri Rough), 12-18 Males & Champions was Ch. Silverdrift's Thriller (sable Sheltie), 6-9 Bitches was Alfenloch Grandhill Ashton (blue Sheltie), 9-12 Bitches was Sabelin's Just A Minute (sable Rough) and 12-18 Bitches & Champions was Inaglen Rainy Day Lover (sable Smooth).
What fun it was to judge such a large, quality entry!
Best of Opposite Sex in Sweeps was Ch. Silverdrift's Thriller.
