BJ certainly has made his mark on the show ring from the first time he stepped into the ring.
From gaining his Australian Title with Best Exhibit in Group and just 1 year & 1 week old, to attaining his first Runner Up To BEST IN SHOW ALL BREEDS (at just 2 years 2 months) and gaining his Grand Championship at just 2 years 11 months.
This dog continues to delight us with his achievements and his beautiful nature.
A dog with a sweet temperament and a joy to own. As you can see gives the "best furry kisses".

As a smaller breed numerically we do not often get overseas Breed Specialist Judges but in 2009 we were lucky to have Mrs Jackie James from the UK and her critique is as follows:
BJ was also #1 Bearded Collie for Australia. DOL pointscore.
Royal Achievements: Runner Up to Best of Breed Bathurst Royal. 2nd in a strong Open Class at Sydney Royal.
2010 saw BJ again as #1 Bearded Collie for Australia in both the All Breeds Leader Board & the Best of Breed Leaderboard.
3 Runner Up Best in Shows and then he takes the triple
1 Speciality Best in Show - 1 Working Dog Best in Show - 1 ALL BREEDS Best In Show
Critique from Mrs VJ Hutton - Bearded Collie Club of NSW - Best in Show -
"My BIS winner was of excellent breed type and in good coat and condition. A lean active dog, well balanced with a correct head piece and bright enquiring expression. He is strongly made throughout, did everything right on the day and deserved his BIS win."
We then attended the Bearded Collie Club of Victoria show
Best in Show
Judge; Mr Arne Foss (Norway)
- who incidentally gave Koopa a 25 point Best of Breed at Sunbury when he judged there 6 or 7 years ago.
Royal Achievements: Sydney Royal - BEST OF BREED and Shortlisted to the last 8 for Best in Group
2011 again saw BJ as #1 Bearded Collie for Australia in both the All Breeds Leader Board & the Best of Breed Leaderboard.
2011 was a quieter year for us with very limited showing some months only attending 1 or 2 shows BUT the results were amazing with
3 Best in Show All Breeds, 3 Runner Up to Best in Show (All Breeds), 14 Best in Groups (Group 1sts), 7 Runner Up to Best in Groups (Group 2nd)
1 Speciality Dog Challenge & Runner Up to Best in Show and 1 Reserve Dog Challenge at the other Speciality.
BJ also took out Bearded Collie Club of NSW - Show Dog of the Year as well as Top Male Bearded Collie.
BJ's critique from the BCC of Victoria Ch show - Judge Mrs Erica Bakker van de Woestijne
"Beautiful Type, very Masculine. He has a strong head and nice eyes and expression. Moves Well. Best Open & RCC"
What will 2012 bring for this boy?
BJ also holds his Herding Instinct Certificate - Just to show he is not just beautiful he is very clever as well.
