The above photo shows Jarrah at the 2000 Tasmanian Collie and Shetlands Sheepdog Club Championship Show being handled by my good friend, Petra Hakvoort, of Kazzahki Shetland Sheepdog Kennels.
Jarrah began her show career at 14 months of age when I begged my friend, Leanne Tinsley, of Kgari Kennels to allow me to take Jarrah to the 1995 Victorian Collie Club (VCC) Show Championship Show.
Up until this time Jarrah had only been shown twice as a baby puppy. She took Junior in Show at the VCC that year under Judge, Denise Grace (Jaymlyn Collies, N.Z.). She returned to Kgari Kennels but was not shown and then to my great delight, at the end of 1996, Leanne allowed me, under lease, to breed Jarrah to N.Z. Ch. Jaymlyn Ultimate Issue (N.Z. IMP). This breeding produced Ch. Baqilodge Hats Off and Baqilodge Heart and Soul (who went to live with Pintado Collies) At this time Leanne agreed to allow Jarrah to stay with me, for which I will be eternally grateful. Thank you so much, Leanne.
Jarrah’s next show was at the end of 1997 and from there she has been shown intermittently going on to achieve her title while collecting.

|“A classy bitch who has beautiful height to length ratio, a lovey refined head and although she is reluctant to use her ears when she does they are correctly placed. She has a beautiful balanced outline with all the correct curves in all the right places – a beautiful chest. Lovely turn of stifle and lovely short hocks. She moves very well from the side. A mature bitch full of class.”|
