Bitch CC   BEST OF BREED   BEST IN GROUP-1
OB 1 Geddes’ Ch/Ir Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, What can I say other than absolutely stunning. I could not take my eyes of this elegant lady who oozed quality throughout. A clean head so well balance and with the sweetest, gentle expression. Neat well set and used ears. Beautifully arched neck leading to a body of perfect size and balance. Correct angulations all round and well set tail. Her movement was equally as pleasing on the eye, so light and effortless. She already had a reputation and I can see why. CC & BOB, and an absolute thrill on my first CC appointment to see her win a very strong group.

Thrilled when she topped the group under Stuard Mallard, later going on the top a very strong BIS line-up, what a picture she looked in the sunshine, congratulations to her breeder and her dedicated owner/handler on presenting her so immuculately.

G1 was Ch/Ir Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, having given this b/m her first CC when she was quite young I have been delighted to witness her development into maturity. Excellent type, feminine, she displays sound scopey action with impressive deportment, carries a glorious head & attributes without a hint of weakness or coarseness. The icing on the cake is her beautiful clear coat of excellent colour.

BIS was Ch/Ir Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, if it was possible this glorious Rough Collie came back in even better bloom than when in the group, she really was stunning, her movement was faultless. I just felt she had it all & totally warranted the top accolade.

Bitch CC   BEST OF BREED   BEST IN GROUP-3
OB 1. Geddes' Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, most georgeous imported b/m who on construction lacked for nothing & while she is so well bred you can't legislate for charisma, this lovely lady had it in bucket loads. It does help that she is a born showgirl, looking good from all angles & has the advantage of demanding attention, she need it in this company, beautifully moulded head with perfeckt ears, very good stop, most endearing eye & expression, lovely arched neck, very good shoulder, depth of chest, legs & feet. In full coat of correct texture, it goes without saying she was faultlessly presented. Good bend of stifle & short strong hocks, movement therefore is self explanatory, expertly handled.

G3 Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, Rough Collie, non-stop showgirl, putting all in for her handler, good head planes, coat of good colour & in excellent condition.

Bitch CC   BEST OF BREED   BEST IN GROUP
OB 1 Geddes’ Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, clean cut head topped with neat ears, well arched muscular neck, first class topline & firm back with good depth of chest, good shoulders & upper arm angulations, hindquarters sound with well let down hocks, in lovely double coat of correct texture, presented to a tee, looks lovely standing in profile, first class showgirl, moves as one would expect from her sound conformation.

I shortlisted down to four & after a final run off gave G1 to the b/m Rough Collie, Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, what a quality & well made bitch this is, I can see why she has had so many admirers. Has so many quality attributes so lacking in this breed today. Pleasing length of head with correct stop & ears bang on top, lovely arched neck of good length, her angles are excellent & has such short neat hocks she can’t fail to move properly, excels in side gait & retains her topline, sound out & back & with correct tail set & carriage desired in the breed, well marked with correct fitting coat. We have jostled over the past few months with our Italian import changing places at nearly every show & I can see why. She is such a super showgirl & has excellent, steady & sensible temperament, her handler certainly gets the best from her charge.

My other group winners were: the Rough Collie, Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, b/m of good shape & size, head could have a little more chiselling. Super topline, sound in rear, coat of great texture, presentation immaculate, was a close contender.
THREE COUNTIES CH SHOW 2009 16th June Kevin Young Bitch CC
OB 1 Geddes’ Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, gorgeous b/m, full of quality & so feminine, most beautiful outline when standing & on the move, ever so sound, moves like a dream & as a working dog should move, a worthy ch. CC.
BATH CH SHOW 2009 22nd - 25th May K S Wilberg Bitch CC   BEST OF BREED
OB 1 Geddes’ Ch Black Gary La Dame Chere at Ingledene, the star of the day, an exquisite bitch of correct & classical Collie type, she has to be one of the best I have ever seen. Lovely head, superb outline finished off with a perfect set of ears, her b/m colour is perfect & she has plenty of presence. It is hard to believe that a Collie can move like this. This bitch is a group dog & her day will hopefully come. What more can I say ?
