It’s official, the Dog World top Rough Collie for 2016 is Tas (Ch Corydon The Ringleader). He went to just eight Shows during the year, at which he won five major awards. He must be one of the least shown dogs to have won this Top of the Breed Award. And he has no Stop. Must be very galling to those who have been brainwashed into believing the Stop is
the most important point for a Rough Collie. May I remind those people that lack of Stop was never a fault. But Cow Hocks, Receding, Bumpy Skulls and Low Set Ears were all classed as very serious faults. Maybe those judges who think a lack of Stop is a disqualifying fault, will change their minds and put more emphasis on penalising exhibits with the above faults. I am not holding my breath though.
No more shows this year so I look
