EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph showcases Scotch Bearded Collie Champion Benjie of Bothkennar, proudly owned by Willison in the year 1961. Benjie's thick, shaggy coat, adorned with a magnificent beard, epitomizes the distinctive features of this ancient Scottish breed. The Bearded Collie, also known as the "Beside-and-Beside" or "Mountain Collie," is a herding dog with a rich heritage, tracing back to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Champion Benjie's piercing eyes and alert expression convey his intelligence and eagerness to work. His well-proportioned body and balanced posture reflect the breed's athleticism and agility, which were essential traits for managing the rugged terrain and large herds of livestock in Scotland's pastoral landscapes. The Bearded Collie's history can be traced back to the 18th century, with the breed's primary function being to help shepherds manage their flocks. The breed's thick double coat, which includes a long, shaggy beard, provided insulation against the harsh weather conditions. Willison, Benjie's devoted owner, cherished this remarkable dog not only for his herding abilities but also for his companionship and loyalty. This photograph captures a moment in time, preserving the memory of a cherished bond between a man and his beloved Bearded Collie champion. In 1961, the Bearded Collie breed was still relatively unknown outside of Scotland, making Benjie of Bothkennar a rare and captivating sight. Today, the breed has gained popularity worldwide, and the Bearded Collie Club of America was established in 1982 to promote and preserve the breed's unique characteristics and heritage.
