Thank you Judge Tom Coen!
(CH. Countryview Tonite's the Night x Lochlaren Rosebank Secret)

*Judge Tom Coen critique - "CH. Rosebank Lochlaren KeepItASecret: This is a truly beautiful bitch, reminiscent of the great bitches of the past-the ones who have raised the bar for all time. Everything about her fits to create a harmonious whole. Balance, balance, balance with softness and quiet elegance. Her head is light with absolutely no depth in profile, excellent skull and feminine expression. Very light on her feet, she traveled smoothly and covered ground easily. Congratulations to her breeders for creating a truly classic Collie!"

*Judge Robert Futh critique – "...I judged...stud dog classes a little differently than is usually done. I kept the stud dog right where I was judging his get and compared their virtues to his. My theory is if you see the most beautiful puppy in the world and he has virtues that the sire does not have why should the sire get the credit...The rough winner was CH. Barksdale Lochlaren Liaison, whose puppies were very uniform and looked like a family. All had flat back skulls, correct stops, sweet eyes and nice muzzles."
