The Bearded Collie Club of America
Great Lakes Regional Specialty Judges BIO

The Bearded Collie came into my life in 1977 following a family search for a dog for the kids.  Love for the breed and all it has to offer manifested itself almost immediately which led to showing and breeding as well as active participation with clubs associated with the local (Chicagoland …) and national (BCCA) level where I held offices ranging from President, Vice  President, and Board Membership.

My enjoyment being around Beardies prompted me to become an AKC Judge where I am now approved to judge Bearded Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs and am currently a Provisional judge for Australian Shepherds and Bouvier des Flandres.

I am honored that Great Lakes Bearded Collie Club has chosen me to be their Judge for their 2012 Specialty.

Mrs. Pat McDonald
Chelsic - USA

I have been an avid Bearded Collie fancier since 1980. It was not my first breed, but it is the one I dearly love.

I am a member of several All Breed kennel clubs and specialty clubs i.e. Bearded Collie Club of America, Rocky Mountain Bearded Collie Club, Onate Trail Kennel Club in El Paso, Rio Grande Kennel Club and Sporting Dog Fanciers. I am also a mentor for the Bearded Collie Club of America.

I have owner handled to a Best in Show and many Group placements. I have had the pleasure of putting Championships on over 43 dogs and obedience titles on several of my dogs. Having been blessed with being able to purchase dogs from Diotima Kennels in the United Kingdom, I have added the attributes to my breeding program that I was looking for.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother (God's greatest gift), friend, mentor, teacher and fierce protector of the Bearded Collie.

Judging assignments include matches, Regional Sweepstakes and judging Futurity at the 2004 BCCA National in Denver, Co.

My motto has always been; "I have always tried to do the right thing".
