Dilys

Manordeifi Satin Doll of Koczkodan "Dilys"

1 x CC

2 x BOB, 3 x RBOB, 1 BVIS, 3 x BVIB

Dilys joined our family in November 2009 and is now seven years old.  She is the second of Delia Moores' dogs that she has entrusted to us for safekeeping and we are very grateful.

Dilys is a tri-colour Smooth Collie, having rich tan and jet black markings.  Her coat is always very shiny and soft (apart from when she's covered in mud - maybe the mudpacks help keep her coat so soft!).  Dilys is the livewire of the family, always active, very quick and very clever.  A playful and cuddly girl, Dilys is very much the tomboy, loving to rough and tumble in the garden.  She is also quite a showgirl, she is relaxed and confident and enjoys strutting her stuff in the ring as she adores being centre of attention.  We are so proud of her for gaining a Challenge Certificate in 2014 at Lancashire and Cheshire Collie Club Championship Show.  Outside of showing, Dilys has gained her Bronze Good Citizen's Award.

Dilys has a fantastic pedigree, being daughter of the wonderful Tatu (Ch Sandcastle's True Topic) and Dawn (Manordeifi Silver Dawn JW). Her maternal grandmother was Ch Silver Serenade (who was also the mother of our blue merle dog, Barney).

We were very proud of Dilys when she became a mother in May 2012, giving birth to seven lovely puppies (fathered by our dog Finn).  She was a wonderful mum, attentive and caring whilst trusting us completely in everything we wanted to do with the puppies.  She continues to adore her daughter Enza, who still lives with us and Dilys enjoys spending time with her son, Enzo when he comes to visit.  She had a second litter in August 2016 and her daughter, River (K. Serenity) lives with us whilst her son, Ripley, lives with Deb and Enzo and is co-owned by Elaine.

Yorkshire Collie Club Open

2nd VB, Joy Walker ' a gleaming 7½ year old tri whose coat was presented in peak condition. Her head handled well, correct stop, dark eyes, neat well placed & used ears all combining to give the expression I was looking for. She has reach of neck, length of back & enough bone & substance. She is nicely constructed with correct topline & strong quarters. Moved true in both directions but couldn’t match the movement of 1.'

May 2015
Collie Association Open
1st OB, RBOB, RBB, Ann French 'super tri bitch now just over 5 years old.  No secret I think she has it all.  Extra feminine with most beautiful head and ear carriage.  Oozes quality with beautiful outline, correct upperarm, holds her topline all the while and can outmove all else with her front extension & rear drive. Showed well.  Quite why she still awaits the upper house is a mystery. Sadly, in the challenge she was much more interested in tidbits and fox poo in the grass.'

February 2015
St Helen's & District Open
1st OB, BOB, Fay Hutchings 'A Tri Bitch, I have always liked, pretty head and eye, correct front and hind angulation, looks a picture stood, does tuck up a little. moved beautifully with good extension to win Best of Breed'

  May 2013
Scottish Kennel Club Ch
1st LB, Derek Smith 'Quality tri, liked her head very much, super ears. Just a touch full in eye. Good neck & beautiful body & outline, well pigmented, in lovely condition, moves well holding her good outline at all times'

Lancs & Cheshire Collie Club Ch
1st LB, Jeff Horswell 'Very easy moving tri bitch, who held the best topline of these three.Maybe not quite the head of 2nd, but it is feminine, flat skull, dark eyes, enough neck. Fairly good front. Well sprung ribs and strong in loin. Well bent stifle and low hocks. Just a tad untidy in front.'

Yorkshire Collie Club Open
2nd OB, Simon Burton 'Not sure if I have seen this 3½yrs tri bitch before but she is rather nice and mother of the two juniors. Half sister to 1 and the same workmanlike construction. Quality head with lovely length, level planes and correct placement of stop giving an excellent profile. Eye is a good shape but not quite the expression of 1 as I found her a touch wide between the eyes. Ears correctly tipped and carried better than 1. Well angulated front and good depth of mature body but would like less length of loin. Neat at the rear with well turned stifles and nice short rear pasterns which gave her drive on the move. She goes with easy extension on a good length of stride, perhaps a touch slack in topline but she scored over 3 with her ground coverage and her better length to height proportions. In good coat of correct texture.'
