In the classes for Sheep dogs the judges were two of as reliable men as are to be found in the country—Messrs Donald Cameron and Malcolm Millar ; and they at once pointed out a defect in the classifying. Only two classes are provided —one for smooth, and one for roughcoated collies, with of course a class for cattle dogs. In the rough-coated collie class, the judges suggested that in future provision should be made for the bearded collies, three of which were shown along with the rough coats, and had to be overlooked. Ori<3 of these was perhaps the best dog in the show, but because he was a "beardie" he was overlooked. 1 Mr G. J. Cholmondeley's "Don," a welV appointed and keen looking black and tan, i got first position, Mr Lawry Rattray's "Tweed" coming second. There were I only four entries in the smoothed hair, ' all good-looking dogs, and the awards ■ were made to Mr J. Moore's "Lass," firsts, and Mr L, Rattray's "Jack " second.
