2011 National Specialty


A week with good friends,
good times and
good memories!


Although our
CH. Barksdale Lochlaren Liaison, ROM
stayed home his presence
was felt all week!

We were thrilled when our LOCHLAREN'S BECOMING JANE, HC went over all the beautiful rough class girls for an exciting WINNERS BITCH award. "Jessie" is our 9th generation girl, coming down from CH. Briarhill Clairvoyent acquired in the 70's, AND a double CH. Barksdale Lochlaren Liaison ROM Granddaughter.

Thank you Helga Kane, for finding Jessie in the huge open sable class and awarding her WB and to Laurie Jeff Greer for her wonderful handling, who so graciously stood in for Barksdale's Nancy McDonald and her broken leg!

Sire: CH Barksdale Lochlaren Goodtimes, HC Dam: Lochlaren's Lydia Bennett. Jessie has 12 points including two 5 point Specialty Majors

Judge Helga Kane's critique:

Open Sable and White Bitches

"1. Lochlaren's Becoming Jane (Ch Barksdale Lochlaren Good Times ex Lochlaren's Lydia Bennett) This bitch was simply Radiant. She had the total picture with her bright, well fitting coat that just seemed to glow like gold, enhancing her classic outline. She had exquisite detail of head - clean and smooth from any angle. A wonderful profile, flat planes with a well placed stop and good finish of underjaw. A most appealing expression. Beautifully presented, she moved as one with her handler and her spirited movement was strong and sure...."

"...Winners Bitch to Lochlaren's Becoming Jane. This one had it all for me. Her exquisite headpiece was so smooth that it was pure bliss to put your hands on it - her classic outline, wrapped in her beautiful golden coat was a joy to view. That bright and joyful disposition as she floated around the ring just oozing happy Collie spirit evoked gladness. The clincher was her captivating expression that touch my heart and let me know that she could not be denied that day. She was everything I could have hoped for in my Winners Bitch".
