Brae at the BCCA 2011 National Specialty
Brae made his Agility, Obedience and Rally debut at the Bearded Collie Club of America (BCCA) 2011 National Specialty held
at the historic Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine. Brae had a respectable showing having earned 2 qualifying scores in
agility and a qualifying score in Rally. Also, Brae had a respectable showing in Best Of Breed where he "made the cut". The top
beardie selected at this specialty was the littermate of Brae's sire - Brae's "Uncle Roy".

The Colony Hotel is located on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the entrance to Kennebunkport harbor. Between
specialty events Jerry and Brae took walks on the hotel's beautiful grounds and to the nearby beach. Noisy seagulls, splashing
waves and the sight and smell of seaweed and other remnants from a receding tide were new experiences for Brae.
