National Working & Pastoral Breeds Championship Show

Another super day at a show with some lovely friends, little picnic, great company and yes a dog show!  As a group show for pastoral breeds, we have two CC (Challenge Certificates) on offer, and I was delighted when Ch Elbereth Matakamies ShCM won his 6th CC (and 5th BOB) and his sister Ch Elbereth Kia Joins Bridus won the res BCC.  The day was made extra special by 10 month old Elbereth Tarmo winning Puppy Dog, Junior Dog and Post Grad Dog with Julie.

The Border Collie breed originated from landrace collies, an ubiquitous type found mainly along the British Isles. Many years ago, the first known origin of the Border Collie emerged from the border country shared between England and Scotland, hence the name. The original purpose was for them to work alongside sheep ranchers. In the year 1915, the term “Border Collie” was coined by James Reid, and served to distinguish the Border Collie breed from the Scotch Collie breed, as registered by the ISDS. Still, they are quite old as a breed, appearing in literature from as far back as the 16th century.
