IS A BREED, ANYWAY?" - USBCC Newsletter, Spring 1995
Jock Gilchrist's famous Spot, ISDS 24981,
was actually the third "Spot" owned by Gilchrist. The first
Spot, great-great-grandfather of Spot 24981, won the Supreme International
Championship in 1947. His mother was a dog named Trim NR. The NR is an
abbreviation for Not Registered. The next Spot was his grandson, known as
Spot II, who won the Scottish National Championship in 1965 and 1966 and
was runner-up to the Supreme Champion in 1966. His mother was Gilchrist's
bitch, Jed, whose parents were Sweep NR and Fan NR. Finally, Spot 24981, a
grandson of Spot II, appears in as many pedigrees as any other stud dog in
the history of the Border Collie. His maternal grandmother, Ann, was a
full sister of the first Spot, and so also a daughter of Trim NR.
