Open Show ~ Saturday April 1st  2017

I would like to thank the committee for the invitation to judge, their hospitality & lovely gift. As always it’s an honour & a privilege to judge this breed.  Thanks also to all the exhibitors for allowing me to access their beloved dogs. I had a very enjoyable day in good company. Despite the damp start judging was able to be held outdoors, which I always think is better for this breed.
