sunday 5th August Morning Open Show
Critique from Mr Trevor Mills
May I say a big thank you to the committee for the opportunity to judge at their Open Show.
To all exhibitors for supporting me and accepting my decision very sports man like.
It was a super venue with a great atmosphere. The dogs were all presented in a clean and well-groomed condition.
A lot of the dogs lacked muscles, exercising is very important to body shape as well as stamina.
It was a shame the veterans never made it so onto:
