I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to judge at their Breed Open Show, having been a member for many many years and my local club it was a pleasure to accept your invitation, thanks also to my lovely stewards on the day for your efficient ring procedure and smiley faces.
Overall, I was happy with my main winners today but still feel front assembly needs improving, heads overall were of good ratios and temperaments were exemplary.
Thanks to the exhibitors in taking all my decisions in good spirit and hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did.
