1st. IMAGINIST QUO VADIS AT STREGATO
Here he came, the one I had been waiting for, QUO VADIS entered the ring as a priceless stallion, and I could hardly take my eyes off him. The owner had spent hours preparing this dog for the show which of course enriched his outline. He was an upstanding male which dominated the ring and he enjoyed showing off. He clearly told me that he was the best. His head had the length I was looking for and it gave a smooth feeling when I palpated it. Having said that, his foreface could have been slightly better filled out, but all the great ones have faults so I could live with that. I loved his expression because his eyes were almond shaped and obliquely set. The elegant and beautiful outline of a Collie runs from the tipped ears to the end of the tail in smooth curves and this dog ticked all the boxes. Good ears, superb neck, strong back, slight curve over the loin, correct croup and tail set. Not much more you can ask for when my new friend in the end drove arrogantly around the ring and his movements were light and effortless. When I opened my catalogue, I was surprised to see that this outstanding dog wasn't already a champion, but he has time on his side. I was pleased to see him short listed in the Group. CC & BOB.
