Sh Ch sashdan Smokin Joe (Imp Aust) - ( 6 CC's, 2 BISS, 1 Grp 3 )

Smokey arived in the UK on the 8th April 2011 after an extended flight from his breeder; Danielle Inverno (Sashdan Kennels). Two days later on the 10th April Smokey won the Dog CC & BIS at the Southern Border Collie Club Championship Show.

Although out-of-coat Smokey has done exceedingly well since his arrival and gained his second CC at Border Union Championship Show in June 2011. Smokey is currently taking a break from showing until his coat recovers from the change in climate.

Smokey returned to the ring in 2012 and became the first Border Collie to gain their champion title in 2012, winning the CC & BOB at Manchester Championship Show on the 21st January 2012. This success has been quickly followed at the Border Collie Club of GB Championship Show in an entry of 343 Smokey gained the dog CC and then BIS under breed specialist judges Kathy Kinton (Breed) and Sue Ader (BIS).

Thank you judges for recognising the virtues of this super Blue/White Border Collie.

Smokey was Top Stud Dog in the Pastoral Group 2014 and is current Top Stud Dog across all breeds 2015. Smokey had a one off outing at the North West Border Collie Club Championship Show in October 2015 and won Best Veteran Dog and the Reserve Dog CC.
