Thank you so much for the YHAS for inviting me to judge my first Breed Open Show . I was

 delighted with the quality of hounds on the day . My BIS and RBIS were two lovely examples of the breed and I had some lovely puppies to judge which is great for the future of the breed . I know how much time and effort it takes to present  your dogs and appreciate your

 entries .
