was a great pleasure to be asked to judge at the Parent Club open show.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day and would like to thank the committee very
much for making Mum and I feel so welcome. I was very pleased with the
entry of 34 dogs with only 8 absentees. I would like to thank the
exhibitors for making the effort to attend the show especially on Easter
weekend and for presenting their dogs so beautifully. A big thankyou to
my wonderful stewards, who helped make my day even more enjoyable.
